KIMI was a thrilling and intense thriller that explored mental health struggles with a beautifully sensitive and realistic touch. Zoë Kravitz gave an exceptional and powerful performance. Also Alex Dobrenko and Devin Ratray gave good performances. The writing was outstanding. It was just a great movie and my favorite movie I've seen this year so far.
Uncharted was pretty good, it was a very fun and entertaining movie to watch but it was greatly lacking in originality, it just felt like I'd seen it many times before. Tom Holland's performance was definitely the highlight of the movie, he gave a superb performance with him perfectly balancing the humor, heart, and trauma of the character. The rest of the performances were good but nothing to spectacular. The fight choreography and action scenes were awesome and very well executed. The visual effects were pretty great. I felt the writing was the biggest downfall of the movie with the story being pretty generic, the dialogue feeling kinda unnatural at times, and there lacking pretty much any character development. Overall I enjoyed it a lot and hope to see a sequel or two or more.
Luca was a very cute, sweet, and funny movie with a very cool nostalgic feeling. The animation was exceptional; very visually beautiful and stunning, the water especially was just gorgeous and so well done. The writing was superb, loved the sweetness and simplicity of just a solid story about friendship and the themes of friendship, loving yourself, and not judging people based on their appearance were very well done. Jack Dylan Grazer and Jacob Tremblay's performances and chemistry were outstanding. Also the music was lovely. One of my favorite animated movies I've ever seen.
Encanto was amazing. The animation was outstanding; just one of the most gorgeous, stunning animated films I've ever seen. The music was exceptional, I especially loved the lyricism in the songs; my favorite songs were Surface Pressure, What Else Can I Do?, and We Don't Talk About Bruno. The writing was phenomenal; I loved how emotionally charged the movie was and the themes of the movie about family, trauma (specifically transgenerational trauma), embracing who you are, and not forgetting what's truly important in life were so well done and explored and also I love how they used symbolism, using Abuela's unexplored trauma to symbolize the unseen darkness threatening the family which in turn shows us how we can't keep trauma bottled up forever casue if we don't work threw our trauma it can't have a negative impact on more then just ourselves but on the ones we care for and love. The performances were superb especially from Stephanie Beatriz, María Cecilia Botero, Jessica Darrow, John Leguizamo, Diane Guerrero, Adassa, Carolina Gaitán, Rhenzy Feliz, and Mauro Castillo. This was an A+ movie, one of the best movies I've ever seen.
Just watched Red Notice and it was pretty entertaining; story wise it was pretty generic and the visual effects weren't great but the screenplay specifically the dialogue was pretty funny and the performances from Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot, and Dwyane Johnson were superb also that twist at the end that Hartley and Black are a couple and were working together the whole time was outstanding I never saw it coming.
