Honestly the best animated sequel Pixar or Disney has ever made. I like how we pick up right where the original left off. It stayed true to the original characters as well as the style. It was just more refined and made it more entertaining to watch. Of course it's not the original but it took a well known story and added onto it perfectly. I enjoy how it focused on Elastagirl and really showed how before becoming a house wife she was a force to be reckoned with. I think the villain was very unique and there was a good twist added in. Th animation was really smooth and all the original actors came back which made it more fun for the audience because you can see how much they actually enjoy playing these characters. All in all the perfect sequel!
A very entertaining history about the beloved Blockbuster franchise. As someone who was born at the very end of Blockbuster's life, I have never experienced going to a blockbuster, which made this documentary weird to watch because it's just people reminiscing about Blockbuster. I was entertained though because I feel like everyone has at least 1 good memory from the store. It was very entertaining and I loved how it was telling the story about the final location left and its struggle to stay open in this day and age. I did find it weird how they just pulled multiple people from the entertainment industry and interviewed them because they felt out of place. I do see what the director was going for but I don't know if it ended up coming through in the final version though. I did love learning the history of Blockbuster and how it is still clinging to life so many years later.
To be honest I could count on one hand how many times I have played Mortal Kombat but as someone who is not a die-hard fan of the games, this movie was really entertaining to watch. It has a great amount of world-building for the newbies, like myself, and I'm sure many easter eggs for more experienced fans of this universe. The casting of this movie is literally perfect and I feel like each actor did amazing with their parts. I was also amazed how they were able to replicate the feeling of the game so well. I felt like I was just watching cutscene after cutscene but it was entertaining. The CGI and special effects were really well done and I think really made the movie a Mortal Kombat movie, as the series is known for its gruesome finishers. Which we got to see a few times. I will say the plot was a little boring and the writing wasn't amazing but for a video game movie, I think it definitely ranks as one of the higher ones, in my book. I think this movie can be enjoyed by new and old fans alike. A perfect gateway into the universe that is Mortal Kombat.
Jason Bourne is the 5th installment of the Bourne franchise and you can tell the writers are starting to lose their spark. The story is not engaging at all and I feel like Bourne's past is getting a bit overplayed. Matt Damon is a truly amazing actor and really helps deliver the story but sometimes the story is so bad not even a good actor can fix it. The movies are kind of getting repetative but I will admit adter the 4th movie it was goos to see the return of fight/chase scenes as well as the shaky cam. I will admit the chase through the Strip was truly magnificent and I think the best chase of the whole franchise. The action of the movie was able to keep me engaged but I feel like they should stop now before the ruin the Jason Bourne character. The ending was also lackluster and I feel like they left it ambiguous so they can make another movie and more money of this franchise. They should quit while they are ahead. Overall an okay movie with a lot of action. If you are a fan of the franchise though I do reccomend skipping this one. It's not needed.
This did not feel like a Jason Bourne movie. It would have definitely been a more interesting movie if it was marketed as a generic action movie. It lacked the charm of Jason Bourne and all of his plans and depth. The script was subpar and the camera work was ok but it lacked the iconic shaky cam and quick cuts you are used to in a Bourne movie. What did save it for me and made the 2-hour runtime bearable was the acting. I believe everyone pulled out their best to perform, despite their characters being one-dimensional. Jeremy Renner definitely held his own and had amazing chemistry with Rachel Weisz. They were the only things keeping me from falling asleep about halfway through the movie. It was an okay action movie but definitely not a Jason Bourne movie.
