Wow. M. Night Shamalyn still has it in him! The story is very intriguing, with some very well-written characters and great acting, especially from James McAvoy. He is an absolute gem in this movie! Each of his characters' personalities are joys to watch, and his main personality is very tragic. So is Casey Cooke, the main female protagonist of the movie. I also like the performance from the woman who plays the psychiatrist Dr. Fletcher. The cinematography is very well-shot, giving tension and plenty of emotion when needed. The musical score from West Dylan Thordson is also memorizing, and fits every scene with music in this film. Split is a thought-provoking, well-acted, well-written powerhouse of a movie. I give this movie 4.5 out of 5 stars!
I thought it was a messed up masterpiece. Joaquin Phoenix was the best part, giving a very unsettling performance. He may have not have the menace of Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger, but he gave a sense of slight humanity to the character. He's a man beaten down by society and takes revenge by becoming the Joker. Top this off with chillingly beautiful music, gorgeous cinematography, genius directing, and other great performances. I give Joker a solid 93/100. This and Godzilla: King of the Monsters may be my two favorite films of the year.
I wanted to die the whole way through. None of it is funny. It humour is bland and dull. There are too many characters who barely have any good development and the movie is too fast-paced. Illumination is a disease and is worse than Sony Pictures Animation. This piece of trash should not have gotten a sequel. That is all.
This movie is stunning. The story may not be as properly written, but it isn't too bad. There's worse writing in other movies. In fact, some critics are kind of hypocritical. They glorify every John Wick movie that Lionsgate pulls out of their butts, with the sequels' bad writing and poor balance of realism and unrealism. Godzilla: King of the Monsters is supposed to be more of a crowd pleaser than a critic's film. The characters could have been a little more fleshed out, but they did kind of work for this movie. I even cried messily for a few scenes! But other than that, the characters were decent, as well as the story, the monster action was outstanding, with great visuals, the music was awesome, and the cinematography was pretty good. I would give it an 89/100. Take your friends, family, and anyone else for this movie! It is awesome!
This film is better than its predecessor, definitely. One of my favorite films of all time, even. The action is edge-of-your-seat intense, the music is terrifying and epic, the cinematogrophy is well done, and the characters are still really good. I think what makes Attack of the Legion better than Guardian of the Universe is the way the film is handled. It is bloodier, more grim, and with cooler action and better effects. If you've watched Guardian of the Universe, you'll love Attack of the Legion.
The special effects have definitely improved over the years, but Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla also has great music, as usual, along with good characters brought to life by good acting, good cinematography, epic action scenes, and a good plot. The main character is female, which is uncommon not with most action movies, but most monster movies. She's also handled well, without her feeling like a clichÃ (C) Mary Sue. Also, the origin of Kiryu (MechaGodzilla) in this movie is amazing, with him being built over the skeleton of the 1954 Godzilla. The ghost of the original Godzilla even possesses the robot and goes on a rampage. Definitely worth watching.
Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah has good effects and great music to spare, but it also has an incredibly messy plot, especially with the time-traveling aspect, it doesn't understand how the ocean works, it has some laughably cheesy moments, even for what it is, the characters are mediocre, that Emi character is stupid and horribly written, and worst of all, it promotes imperialism in the worst ways possible, especially by treating like the Japanese WW2 soldiers like heroes. Also, King Ghidorah is kind of wasted in this flick. Go ahead and watch Godzilla vs. Biollante instead.
Even with the limited monster action, every minute of Godzilla or the MUTOs is almost unforgettable. The computer graphics are beautiful, the acting is good enough, the music is ecsellent, the action is epic, and the cinematography is great. My only complaints are the lack of Godzilla screentime, the lighting being a bit too dark, and the characters being a little flat. Still better than 1998, though. On every level.
The worst movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, without a doubt. Possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen period. Brie Larson was terrible, the action was forgettable, the characters were all bland, and how Nick Fury lost his eye completely killed the character. I'm done with the MCU after Avengers: Endgame. Whoever wrote this and casted Brie Larson as Captain Marvel should be thrown out of Marvel Studios.
Even with it's good animation and spectacular musical score, Planet of the Monsters is slow, full of exposition, topped off with horribly flat characters, boring action sequences, and limited kaiju action. Sure, you can have limited monsters in your movie, like how the 2014 Godzilla did, but at least in 2014, every minute of Godzilla was worth watching. In this film, Godzilla barely even walks. The only cool thing he does is shoot his beam. Oh, and the twist at the end was highly expected, even if you didn't see the trailers. Don't waste your time on this bland and boring mess. Go watch Shin Godzilla or Godzilla (2014) instead.
How can such a beautifully animated film with excellent musical score be so boring and almost unwatchable? The action is completely limited, the characters are still forgettable, and the mind-bending vision nonsense gets in the way of what we want to see. They didn't handle Godzilla or Ghidorah well. Definitely skip out on this one.
