A bio-pic as unique as the subject himself. It wasn't afraid to delve heavily into Elton's issues and addictions that gives the audience a look behind the smile and colourful costumes. Taron Egerton was Elton, and with a great supporting cast most notably Bryce Dallas Howard's turn as his mother it couldn't go wrong. It has set the bar for musical bio-pics incredibly high.
With so much hype and the pressure of two well loved films coming before it, could John Wick deliver a third time? You bet your ass it did. You would think three movies of Reeves beating up and killing people would get stale but they found the what I believe to be the secret to a killer Keanu movie... lots of action very limited dialogue. The movie played to its strengths in outstanding fight choreography and some limited but well placed humor which all allows for the plot development.
Detective Pikachu is a movie that is great for all ages to watch, whether you are a child, teenager, a 25 year old feeling nostalgic about a major part of his childhood, or an adult who had to put up with the playing cards, and constant singing of the theme song. The film is mostly predictable with a few great twists that got me thinking, "Wow didn't see that coming." The great thing about the movie was that you didn't have to be a super fan to follow and understand, and if you are a super fan it doesn't insult your intelligence by dumbing it down or destroying the source material *cough cough Super Mario Bros.*
Well the Avengers series of the MCU left it all the screen in their Endgame. Despite a predictable end to the battle with Thanos, it brought a lot of great comedy and also a few tears. The movie didn't get of the best start, it picked itself up. It was interesting to see some of the blatant message in the climax, which threw me out of the movie for a second with an "are you serious."
Well a reboot that hits the ground running. The brilliance of effects along with the great casting of Quinto as Spock has this film a delight to rewatch over and over. The fact they did not go straight for the Klingons was a smart move on the part of Abrams and the writers.
