Cars 3
Cars 3 (2017)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

An improvement over Cars 2 that tries and somewhat succeeds in getting back to the heart of the first movie even if its story is kind of shallow and the end a bit of a cop out

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

An improvement over the first movie with better action and a more central and focused character drama. It like the first is over the top in its jokes but also like the first it gives fun superhero space action with a likable cast

Beauty and the Beast

½

As utterly pointless a remake as they come. Many scenes are 100% identical to the 1991 original except all said and song a little bit worse so what is the point. Most of what was added to increase the length also felt mostly pointless and added little if anything to this story. You get some nice visuals but I see next to no creative reason this movie exists

Ghost in the Shell
5 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The movie's visual style and well done 3D action are often times fantastic but it really seems to be lacking the deeper themes of original movie in order to instead tell a far more predictable and standard Hollywood heroes journey which is a kind of a shame because it could really have been a lot more than that

Kong: Skull Island

Basically this is a silly B grade monster movie from the 60s or 70s but done on a big budget with modern special effects and thats perfectly fine. It doesn't take itself too seriously and features some standout monster fights. Its cast also give some solid performances particularly from John C Riley. If you are a fan of these type of movies you will probably enjoy this
