Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
18 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This film is very bizarre, not just in terms of the actual bizarre things in the movie. The cast do a good enough job with their roles, even if some of them didn't have much to do. The visual effects and production design are also great. However, director Tim Burton and screenwriter Jane Goldman made bizarre creative choices with this film; either to simply suit their styles or just for shock value. As a result, it feels like there isn't much effort made with the film. The script isn't as horrible as those for other book adaptations but it isn't great enough to make me anticipate for a sequel. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is an okay film that doesn't do much to keep the YA/teen genre relevant or alive.

Marvel's The Avengers
23 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Extremely entertaining. Extremely fun. This is a nerd's dream come true. Marvel fans will be proud of this. However, my only complaints are that the plot was, in someway, generic, there were a few slow and boring moments, and the aliens I found weren't that threatening. Overall, this is easily one of the most delightful comic book movies to date.

Suicide Squad
Suicide Squad (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Even with off-putting story and editing issues, wasted elements, hit and miss characters and performances, and a lame villain, Suicide Squad is an entertaining, action-packed, and relatively well executed delight of a film, with wonderful performances from Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez and Viola Davis. Ultimately doesn't do much to get me more excited for future DCEU films (and I love DC).

Deadpool (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I feel that Deadpool receives more credit than it deserves. While it is funny and filled with spectacular action and comedy, it is not without its flaws.

The R rated stuff, while funny and good, felt a bit forced into the movie just to please the fans to make sure its R rated because it wants to be. The film, while it does make fun of the superhero movie tropes, it still follows the superhero movie "formula". I would also think that there will be moments that feel A BIT sexist towards women who will watch this movie. And also, DON'T LET CHILDREN SEE THIS MOVIE! Also, there was a few comedy that wasn't my type of comedy, PERSONALLY.

Nevertheless, Ryan Reynolds is perfect as Deadpool, with the rest of the cast doing a good job. The tie-ins with the X-Men universe were also pretty cool.

So while I don't think its as perfect as everyone is saying it is, the movie is still an enjoyable watch.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

As a fanboy, I'd say this movie is awesome. However, as a fan of movies, Batman v Superman is disappointingly flawed, though it still has its merits.

The main big problem with the film is the incoherent narrative pacing and editing. The film has brilliant ideas, but it doesn't seem that director Zack Snyder knows how to hold them together to make a smooth coherent story, especially since the film has to also establish this new DC universe and set up things for the future (even if it the content of those parts are pretty exciting as a fanboy). Some choices made with the characters and plot points were also pretty odd, especially with Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor.

Onto the positive, the film has brilliant acting, especially from Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot, though the rest do their best with what they were given. The film's action and visual spectacle was also pretty astonishing. Director Zack Snyder and writer Chris Terrio also do a terrific job pulling off the more serious and subtle moments of the film and its story.

While it is disappointing and heartbreaking that Batman v Superman is getting response it is getting, the film is not without its more-than-great merits, in my opinion at least. And I have to admit, Wonder Woman is pretty awesome and I'm still looking forward to the DC Extended Universe. This movie could have been worse, and I mean much worse.
