This is one of the best looking Marvel movies out there, it's just gorgeous. I think the idea here is really cool. Some of the execution falls flat, partly due to there being just too much lore to set up for a single movie, so it takes a bit too long for the main story to move along, but I think the core ideas are great here, and I think there's a lot of potential for sequels here.
I mean you know from the premise that it's just not going to be anything special, but hey, it's enjoyable enough for what it is. I thought the actress that played the older daughter did stand out though.
I thought this was a really well made movie, and a perfect way to end Daniel Craig's run as Bond. This movie has some really great cinematography, and I really like how they brought the story to a more personal place, much like Casino Royale and Skyfall, which I think really elevated those movies to being much more memorable than they would have been otherwise, and I think the same is true here. Excellent finale. Daniel Craig will be missed as Bond for sure.
It's a really cool idea, and I love the design of the zombies, but some things just don't work here for me. In particular, I think there is wasted potential in the story, and I end up wondering what exactly the point of the story by the end of it, aside from setting up a sequel. I like Snyder, and his style and the action is what worked the best here. It's ultimately still a fun movie, but some of the best aspects of it feel wasted.
I think this movie is a lot better than most people would probably expect. John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale give really great performances and have great chemistry here, and there's some solid funny moments throughout. Better than most rom coms imo. The supporting cast is great too, with Jeremy Piven, Eugene Levy, Molly Shannon, and John Corbett all having some fun moments.
Well holy crap this movie is intense. Seriously, one of most tense movies I've seen. Russel Crowe gives a great performance, and I thought Caren Pistorius did a great job really pushing the audience to feel the suspense and serious worry for what was going to happen next. I don't really understand the complaints I've seen from some people, aside from one particular line, which was silly but it worked just fine. I was thoroughly entertained and surprised by this movie.
I'm currently watching The Thick of It, so I wanted to check out this movie, which is essentially an alternate universe version of that show with a slightly bigger budget, and where part of it takes place in America. Peter Capaldi is great as Malcom Tucker, as he is in the show, and the various supporting characters all have their charm. Overall though, I didn't think the story was the best I've seen from this format.
I went into this movie knowing next to nothing about it. I was basically expecting something along the lines of Iron Fist, and I got something far more epic than I was expecting. The martial arts sequences are absolutely incredible, and the 3D works really well with the action in the movie, but the final act takes everything to a new level, and I loved every bit of it.
Total and utter garbage. Some moron decided to take what could have been an interesting story and turn it into an idiotic art piece that is filled with just terrible direction and production decisions. I didn't even think "The Current War" was all that great, but at least it was watchable. Whoever greenlit this idea is an idiot, and anybody who knew what this would be and didn't immediately quit the project deserves to have their judgement questioned in the future.
I thoroughly enjoyed this. I had heard that there was something unexpected about this movie, but I wasn't really sure what kind of movie I was going into exactly, and it didn't disappoint. I've been seeing a lot of Samara Weaving in the last year, and this is easily my favorite thing I've seen her do. The tone and direction of this movie especially were just so well done.
I think this movie is underrated. I don't hear it mentioned nearly as much as it should among other Disney animated classics. It's a wonderfully dark story, darker than you usually see with Disney. The visuals and score are brilliant. The musical numbers don't work as well as other Disney movies, but there are two or three particularly good songs there as well.
I really enjoyed it. I think with this, Logan, and The Last of Us, I'm just a sucker for "old man force to take care of wild young girl" stories, and those other two also have a bit of a western tone to them as well. So yeah, while I could pretty well guess what would happen throughout, I still enjoyed the characters and scenery.
I think the characters were acted well enough, and the situation drew me in for a while, but I was seriously disappointed with the way everything came together, with the movie ultimately seeming to have no point to me by the end.
I thought this movie was just as much fun as the original, and some stuff actually worked even better than the first. I think already having established the relationship between the characters allowed there to be a better rapport between them, and the cinematography was a lot better this time around as well, plus the additions to the cast worked great. One minor complaint I'd have is the gimmick with Ryan Reynolds not wanting to kill at the start, which I feel like didn't really work.
I think I watched this mostly because of the cast, and when I started it up I wasn't expecting a whole lot out of it based on it looking like a family movie, but I was pleasantly surprised. It felt like the adults were given equal screen time to the kids, and their stuff didn't feel dumbed down for kids to enjoy it, which I think is always the best way to handle family movies, so they're enjoyable to all ages, not just kids. Overall, it was a decent watch.
As much as I love the idea of a spoof on James Bond, and the concept of having James Bond as a code name for multiple agents is of course way before its time, considering what happened with the 007 movies after this, but the execution here is really poor. There's very little story here (although one minor aspect of it resembles the 2006 movie), but rather just random scene after scene, attempting at comedy that rarely works. It ended up feeling longer than it was.
Very enjoyable, and better than the first movie, mostly because it feels like it really knows what it wants to be and doesn't take itself seriously at all to achieve it. While I can see that Bloodsport was clearly a rewrite of Deadshot, I thought Idris brought something more interesting to the role, and I loved Ratcatcher 2, who quickly became my favorite character in this movie. One complaint I did have is that The Thinker feels mostly wasted, not really making use of his abilities at all.
I thought this was decent enough. I liked the character of Enola, and how it made for a slight twist on the typical Sherlock story, and I liked the action and direction, but some of the mystery elements didn't quite pay off as well as they should have for a story like this. That being said, I had fun watching it, and would watch a sequel.
I believe this is my second time watching this movie (at least, fully) and my score has gone up. This movie is designed and executed so well. Because they were smart in how to mix practical with digital effects, the effect hold up even 21 years later. The first time I believe I watched the extended edition and this time I watched the director's preferred theatrical edition, and that seems to have improved my impression of the storytelling. There's a lot to love here.
