The plot is thin, most of the characters are one-dimensional, and there are a couple moments where the CGI looks a bit off. That being said, The Predator is a very fun action flick. Most of the jokes are funny, the action is great, and the acting is solid around the board. Boyd Holbrook proves himself both a strong actor and a solid action star, Olivia Munn proved that scientists can be badassess too, Jake Busey does a good job while also strengthening the series' continuity, and Jacob Tremblay steals the show, giving an excellent performance and the most accurate portrayal of ASD since Ben Affleck in The Accountant. Top it all off with an awesome new Predator design, and you get a flawed but very fun experience.
Successfully balancing its very large cast, Infinity War brings them all together for a thrill ride that will make you laugh and cry. The acting is great across the board, and the action is high-stakes, fun, and intense. Josh Brolin steals the show as Thanos, making the villain relatable but not quite likable; a difficult task he almost makes look easy. The visuals are dazzling, the musical score is phenomenal, and the story never feels slow despite the movie's 2.5 hour runtime. It does underuse a few characters, but this doesn't hamper the film's quality. Overall, Infinity War may not have exceeded expectations, but it definitely met them.
Led by outstanding mostly-silent performances from its cast, A Quiet Place surpasses all expectations. John Krasinski shines in both the lead role and the director's chair. Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, and Noah Jupe are all fantastic as well. The creatures have unique and fascinating designs, and are expertly established as threats. Probably the best part of the film is the sound design, which is made more noticeable by the near-absence of spoken dialogue, and the creatures' noises are believable and terrifying. Honestly, this is the best horror movie I've seen in a long time, and I can't wait to see what John Krasinski's next project is.
One of Edgar Wright's finest, Baby Driver put the Fast & Furious movies to shame. The action is well-shot and easy to follow, with the diegetic soundtrack making it even better. Ansel Elgort is fantastic as Baby, Jamie Foxx is the perfect amount of crazy as Bats, and Jon Hamm's charismatic performance helps make Buddy one of the most compelling villains of 2017. The script is intelligently written, and the ending is one of the best of the year.
