As a longtime fan of DANIELS, their feature film debut was like a acid-trip dream come true. Though full of montages and traipsing through the jungle, the film hits every beat and stylistic flourish DANIELS is known for. The whole experience is entrancing and exceptionally unique; the film was made for weird people, so I loved it!
My friend and I whispered just before the opening scene "this is gonna be good, we're gonna love this," assuring ourselves that despite the reviews, our X-Men fandom would override its potential poor quality. Well, when the credits rolled, we looked at each other again and said "noooooooooo." We enjoyed it, it was a movie with characters we love after all, but the acting from the supporting cast was simply not good. Writing across the board was very poor, rife with the kind of clichés the last two movies avoided. In scenes with Apocalypse, everyone else is sort of standing around. The movie is surprisingly awkward, doesn't seem to know what to do with all its characters, and feeds them cardboard dialogue. This movie might have been passable if it wasn't part of such a high quality trilogy, but the dip in quality from Days of Future Past is tremendous.
Expectedly great, with countless cameos that felt more than stunt casting. The TMZ parody CMZ within the movie with Arnett, Birbiglia, Peretti, and Eric Andre might be the thing that slayed me hardest. Despite its surreal absurdity, the movie has a good heart and adds a layer to the parody. Oh and the songs are ??.
Another clean, well-executed installment. Spider-Man and Ant-Man are the standouts here, while Bucky continues to be kind of plain bagel. Couldn't help but feel it was missing another dimension to it, after the film acknowledges the similar destructions in every Marvel movie's climax, this one isn't wholly different.
Despite surrounding the plight of a cat, Keanu follows a pretty standard movie trajectory. But that allows for Key & Peele to stand out even more, with some unreal bits throughout. Their TV show did a fantastic job at mimicking cinema's tropes and visual aesthetics, so the somewhat predictable twists and turns in Keanu almost fit their legacy anyway. Definitely worth seeing!
