Rating History

Baby Driver
Baby Driver (2017)
2 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not sure why this is rated so highly. I thought it started off strong but really ran out of steam & ideas halfway through. The constant blaring music was too much and headache inducing, the love story was contrived, and overall the film is just style over substance. For what it's worth, the first half is pretty good.

War for the Planet of the Apes
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Not as good as 'DAWN' but a decent end to the trilogy.

Spider-Man: Homecoming
16 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Pretty good! Fun, colourful, funny in parts. The villain is actually decent for once. The plot is small and contained, rather than the hero having to save the planet for the millionth time. I liked it.

Biggest criticism for me is Spiderman's new suit is so outrageously over the top with gadgets coming out of its arse, it's essentially an Iron Man suit that looks different. Spiderman should always be the plucky underdog, but his suit ruins that.

The Mummy
The Mummy (2017)

The original was campy fun, this one is a forced mess and completely unnecessary. I mean, it's stunningly awful.
The first half tries to be comedic, but the jokes fall flat. Then the tone shifts massively in the second half into an overly-serious clusterfuck that does nothing but produce unintentional laughs.
Why Tom Cruise is in this I'll never know. He has enough money to start his own country so I can only assume he was blackmailed into it.

Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman (2017)
39 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A little too corny and a bit heavy on the whole "strong woman in a man's world" messaging, but a lot better than I was expecting. An actual DC film with jokes, if you can believe it. Really enjoyed the World War 1 setting, that's something different. Good performances, especially from Gal Gadot. Just a good time really.
