Much better than the reviews make it seem. And that Jean moment :)
Captain America 3 struggles to manage all the character point of views, some feel weak others a bit stronger, but nothing that stands out--and that's probably it's biggest fault. Many good small moments don't make a great movie. Winter Soldier is still the best Marvel film, followed by Civil War.
Like Man of Steel, BvS tries to do so much with so little time. The problem with jamming too many things at once is that the good things either get lost or are reduced. These good moments illustrate that this film could have been drastically different if it wasn't weighed down by the burden of instantly launching a DC franchise. However, WB once again ruins this film, by forcing BvS to be something it can't be.
In one of the most egregious mistakes, BvS makes Superman a statue who rarely ever talks. People only talk to him. Snyder's vision to make him a god might justify this but whether Snyder likes it or not Superman is also Clark Kent and you can't separate the two. So, what also happens is that Clark Kent also becomes a statue and that is utterly unacceptable.
I didn't get bored watching this film; I think I was waiting for that good moment to come out again, but it never did. It gets 3 stars just for what it could have been and what it tried to be.
I can understand why Daniel Craig would suggest slashing his wrists. Spectre aims for another Skyfall, but it misses by a long shot. Some solid action sequences make the movie watchable, otherwise its just a bore on all levels. Misguided and one-dimensional, James Bond has officially become jaded. It might be time to retire, 007.
I wanted to see a better film-one that would honor Paul Walker's memory, but I was disappointed. Too many action sequences suck this film dry. The opening car race and the touching dream-like ending are the best parts of the film. When you hear Vin Diesal's character talking, you can't help but imagine if he is really talking to Paul Walker.
Nightcrawler paints a shocking image of the news media in an intense and fascinating thriller.
Jupiter Ascending is visually interesting, but not so much in its narrative.
Better than the first two...
Movies this daring, this original, and this thought-provoking rarely hit cinemas and when they do; they are really hard to resist. Interstellar is another example of these outstanding movies.
Hans Zimmer's musical score is a deep and heart-trembling crescendo. It's safe to say that Zimmer has taken back his spot among the best music producers in the film industry.
