It's a good send off to the series. I just felt while watching it that the ending of TS3 was how the franchise should have been wrapped up in a better fashion.
A good soft-reboot of the convoluted and frankly ridiculous Michael Bay Transformers franchise. As a child of the 80s my jaw dropped (in a good way) when I saw recognizable Transformers designs and fan favourites like the Soundwave cameo in the beginning of the film. The story surprisingly had heart as well.
Who would have thought the the best Spider-Man movie in over a decade would be an animated film? Just a great story full with heart and laughs.
It's decent, but not as good as the first movie. It just seems like it doesn't have the same sort of magic that the first one had.
It's a decent movie, but definitely not as good as the first one.
This was the first movie where I came out of the theatre feeling confused and conflicted. I wanted to like it, but after thinking about it I realized how bad it truly was.
Writing errors, breaks in established canon, errors in direction, lack of attention to detail (eg, the ship count and position of the First Order fleet changes from scene to scene), plot inconsistencies between this film and the last, plot inconsistencies between this film and the rest of the saga, plot inconsistencies within this film itself, unexplained established character inconsistencies, lack of character development, etc. This film also, to its detriment, attempts to subvert audience expectations just because it can.
You can tell that the new sequel trilogy is being written on the fly with no overall plan for the story. After all how is it that Rian Johnson could be allowed to throw out almost everything that J.J. Abrams set up in the Force Awakens, and end his movie in a way that felt like the end of a trilogy instead of the middle movie?
It's a film that's fun for little kids, people who can't handle how mean the original Grinch character was, or those who have never seen the original cartoon.
This Grinch comes across as just a cranky guy who has very weak motivations for stealing Christmas. He actually seems likable as a character while doing his scheming. Softening the Grinch's demeanor actually ruins the payoff of him changing his ways at the end of the story.
Also, what gives? We're given terrible semi-rap version of You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch, and never a version closer to the original?
This was bad, so bad. Poor writing, poor acting, unfunny, etc.
The screenwriter obviously couldn't decide on whether this was going to be a period-piece comedy or something in the vein of the "_____ Movie" franchise. Modern references, including a Ghost movie pottery scene reference and Trump jokes, felt out of place and jarring, while major historical inaccuracies were abundant (eg. Queen Victoria on the Titantic before its maiden voyage even though it sunk 11 years after her death).
The acting was poor too as it seemed like Will Farrell and John C. Reilly were phoning it in at times, while Ralph Fiennes was uncharacteristically weak. But the worst performance in the film, by far, came from Lauren Lapkus as she was insufferable.
And the jokes were bad too, often derivative of things that I've seen in better films.
Spend you money on better entertainment and run far away from this movie.
