Masterminds has a very few moments, but it's ultimately painful. I usually like whatever Kristen Wiig stars on, but I mean, every single character in here is so unlikeable. The southern accents are just awful. And for being based on a true story, some parts are pretty unbelieavable. Maybe it's the cast that sets the bar too high and then end up being dissapointing.
The girl on the train is an enjoyable movie. But I think it's more suited to be an episode of a TV show. The inner monologues come off pretty pretentious. Emily Blunt did a great job acting like a crazy drunk. I did really disliked her at times. The twist was great, the problem is that you somehow saw it coming. That's the problem with having just a handfull of significant characters. When it's not one, it had to be the other one. Some may say it's nitpicking, but they kinda lost me on the bottle opener kill. It just seemed too unrealistic when the wife started twisting. Maybe even silly. Completely took me out of the movie. Also, the train was so unimportant. You could totally take it out of the equation and still have the same movie. So, a few points less too on the name.
Doctor Strange has everything you'd expect it to have. The problem is that Marvel already had the bar too high for movies about characters you may not know too much about. The visuals are spectacular, but the story kinda dissapointed me. Everything kinda happens too fast. I had this notion that Dr. Strange was this super wise wizard, and I feel like he doesn't really get enough time to become all that wise and powerful. Also, the fact that he was just normal and kinda learned everything from practicing, makes you feel like anyone could've done it, making him a bit less special, and a bit less believable. Then again, I'm asking for a movie about aliens and magic and shit to be belieavable, so maybe I'm asking for too much. Still better than DC movies, though.
Jack Reacher's new installment isn't as great as the first one. The first one had a little more detective work put into it. The ending was more shocking. Here we don't really have a motive. Things just kinda start happening and everyone rolls with it. That's how it feels. Jack is a badass with no emotions, but will go pretty far lengths to get a date. Anyways, that said, it's an average, enjoyable aciton flick. There's a few plot holes to poke fun at, but at the end of the day, when the first one was a good movie that became forgettable, this one doesn't have too much hope for itself.
This movie has given everyone a lot to talk about, with the stories that came out about how they forced animators to work overtime or how it shows the potential for a market of animated movies for adults and what not. But leaving all that aside, content-wise, I'd say this a pretty funny movie. I like most of the actors doing the voices and pretty much have liked everything Seth Rogen has written or been on, so it's not really a surprise that I loved this. But trying to be objective, I'd say more than being obviously hilarious, I'd say this manages to be pretty clever and bring up interesting point of views on relevant themes nowadays. The ending was completely overthetop and it may take some people off-guard, but I'd say you should not take it too seriously.
