To be fair, I don't think "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" will be a classic remembered for how amazing it was. However, I really had fun with the movie from beginning to end thanks to:
1.) The performances (and chemistry)
2.) The slightly unexpected turnout. - I thought I knew how the film would end. Alas, I was wrong.
3.) The execution of the story - It's the same rom-com formula done in the best way possible
Where's the other half star? The movie had its dull moments. Overall, thought, I really loved this movie and for a guy like me who hasn't fallen in love with anyone, me loving this movie is kind of a big deal.
Honestly, I did not know what to expect with "Upgrade." I did, however, know that I wanted it to be great thanks to the reviews. I wanted to give this film either a 3.5/5 stars or 4/5. I really wanted to and I almost did.
The story was pretty good, though slightly predictable. A story of a man whose body and mind were invaded by a robot in a tech-centered (and beautifully built) world? Who would hate/dislike that? Sadly, that's where my praises end. The moment Eron was introduced, I knew that he was going to be the villain and, after an hour, I knew that STEM is somehow involved in his schemes. Also, all the characters were just semi-interesting, except for STEM.
THE FIRST 37 MINUTES OF THE FILM WERE THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD "BOREDOM." In my opinion, a movie can be bad as long as its not boring. CAUSING BOREDOM is a movie's greatest sin
NOTE 1: I think people should check this one out. I disliked it but I can see that a lot of people will love it.
NOTE 2: Marcia Gay Harden was incredible! Mrs. Carmody was despicable and I hated her so much! The movie is worth watching just for her performance.
NOTE 3: The ending was great and devastating (but was ruined a little bit by Thomas Jane's performance)
"The Mist" could have been a better/great movie if:
1 They hired better actors - throughout the entire film, I felt that no one except Marcia Gay Harden gave their best performance. Everyone else ranges from meh to pretty good.
2 The movie was more expensive - the movie's budgeted at $18,000,000 and it shows. The mist itself looked okay and the CGI creatures looked like they're in another scene.
3 They made the story slightly better - I never read the book. The movie's story, however, was "okay." I did not care that much for the characters. I did, however, wanted Mrs. Carmody to die and I rejoice that I got what I wanted
I'm "fatigued" with Filipino Romantic movies. I don't think they're bad, I actually think they're pretty good. But they rely too much on two things: a a cliched story and the chemistry between their leads. "Kita Kita" is different.
This movie relied on script, great story, drama and the leads' chemistry and ability to act as dramatic and comedic actors. I loved that the story established who Lea is. It lets you understand her position. After Lea became blind, the romantic-comedic elements of the film enter and they were VERY ROMANTIC AND VERY FUNNY. They really worked and because of that, the scene at the 56-minute mark totally destroyed me.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE AND I WILL WATCH IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.
"Surf's Up" is probably the most decent film I have ever seen. The animation's decent, the voice acting's decent, the story's decent, the comedy's decent. That's it. The best word to describe this film is the word "decent."
