Shang Chi stands out from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Yes, it still has the same look and feel, but the rest of the film had its own distinct heartbeat. Bringing martial arts into this franchise felt like a breath of fresh air. Although this origin story isn't entirely free of Marvel's familiar formula, the movie will entertain the audience. This is a great new addition to the Franchise! Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings not only expands Marvel's cultural ground, it also provides action, comedy and emotion you come to expect from this studio.
A solid anti-hero flick, miles better than the 2016 original Suicide Squad. James Gunn made the Suicide Squad crazy, bloody and awesome. The squad is really suicide in many moments. I appreciated the casting choices and bringing some characters back from the original felt redeeming. The new character's personalities are vibrant and different. The CGI was impressive, although the premise is nothing new. James Gunn brought something fresh. The action is well choreographed and the humor is decent. An overall good installment for the DC franchise.
The New Mutants leaves a bad taste in your mouth. A nonsensical, and weirdly cheap attempt to take the story in a new direction. The concept is intriguing and could've re-imagined the familiar origin superhero story. Instead, it ends the X-Men franchise with a dreadful and pointless feeling.
This uncomfortable and fascinating story about physical & mental conditions emerge around those getting old, each more strange and traumatizing as the movie progresses. The acting wasn't too bad. The acting was actually pretty good, to be honest. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire runtime. This movie doesn't have a good amount of substance, and yet it keeps you invested until the credits roll. This movie never got boring. Shyamalan's fascinating style and well written twists blend neatly with debatable dialogue and weird camera work.
