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

(8.5/10)
Aside from a few not so great visual effects and a few heavy-handed moments and script choices, Wonder Woman is a wonderful (sorry) film that makes the most of the DCEU's potential, with great performances, a powerful message, awesome action, an incredible score, and an amazing direction and story from Patty Jenkins and Allan Heinberg. This film is everything I love about DC and its characters; lovable characters who inspire us in times of darkness, and stories of gods becoming human.

Fantastic Four

IT'S REALLY NOT THAT BAD!!!

While I do agree with that the final act was a mess and felt like a completely different movie, no thanks to the studio's interference, I thought this Fantastic Four is better than the two other ones, and it really did start off strong, even though it really could have been better, which is disappointing.

The character development between Reed and Grimm was great but I felt like there were some parts missing to it. The relationship between the Storms, as well as Doom's story, was fully fleshed out enough, and it's painfully clear that a lot of development was cut from the film by the studio's stupid mind. The actors did a great job with what they were given with. I loved Doom's intimidating look, even though it could have been done better. I loved the dark realistic sci-fi and horror aspects of the movie, which again, was ruined by the studio. Contrary to what many people believe, there was some humor in this movie, it just wasn't that funny. The humor and lines in the third act was especially cringe-worthy. There were so many moments that felt missing from the film, including three major action sequences, which were cut by the studio (SURPRISE, SURPRISE).

This was a film that was completely ruined by a studio's idiotic mind and it could have been MUCH better film to begin with and that's disappointing. Fantastic Four is not a movie, it is a series of sequences that blend together to make this disappointingly mediocre mess.

Doctor Strange
22 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Doctor Strange is one of Marvel's better films, seriously. Doctor Strange is weird, imaginative and innovative in terms of visuals, is wonderfully acted by its cast, and boasts some great depth and messages in the screenplay. However, some characters are underwritten, especially Mads Mikkelsen's villain, and some of the humor doesn't quite land, which also leads to a somewhat uneven tone because of said humor. While Doctor Strange is somewhat derivative, it is a solid entry in the MCU, as it introduces (pseudo-)magic in the universe.

Pan's Labyrinth
26 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Pan's Labyrinth is a sublime wonder of adult horror blended with spellbinding fantasy. This will and always be Guillermo del Toro's first and ultimate masterpiece that will go down in the history books, as a beautiful fable of innocence and cruelty.

The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water is an engaging sublime tale about love, marginalization and monsters with mesmerizing performances from Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon and Richard Jenkins. Despite a few tonal inconsistencies and forced moments, Guillermo del Toro presents a wonderful modern adult fairy tale for the times.
