'Voyagers' pays a decent homage to 'Lord of the Flies' with a sci-fi twist within it. The film is enjoyable at face value, but plays out more like an extended episode of a Netflix original streaming show instead of a theatrical film. The cast does just as most would expect them to, and nobody truly stands out. The cinematography is nice and the VFX are quite good along with some great suspenseful moments, but other than that the script is pretty average and makes the film appear very much like one from a student filmmaker.
Jordan Peele's newest horror/thriller is truly a frightening masterpiece. The combination of the film's score and its incredible lead actress along with her amazing supporting actors make for one thrilling and terrifying experience. If you are in need of a movie that is truly scary without the use of cheap jump scares, this is the film for you. It is intelligent without having to tell you that it is intelligent. It is a very impressive movie.
Marvel gives audiences a powerful lead woman for the first time since its film series debut in 2008. After many powerful female supporting roles from Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), Gamora (Vanessa Marshall), and more, the MCU has finally introduced a movie with a female lead. Captain Marvel's origin story is very interesting and the 90s vibe throughout the film is lovely. Samuel L. Jackson as Larson's supporting role does phenomenal and the film proves he needs more screen time in the future.
Tyler Perry's film debut is powerful story about the struggles of divorce and how to find the strength to overcome those struggles. The film also touches on other topics such as addiction and abuse, though it never goes as in depth as it probably should've. The comedy and drama mix well together and Perry proves to be a powerful actor as he plays three main roles in the film in a superb fashion.
The series ends with a grand finale of events that you can't miss. With the obvious amazing talent on and off screen, the story wraps up nicely and takes major hits along the way and actually has several plot twists for the viewers that aren't familiar with the novel. This film series has truly shown others an example of how to do a film series adaptation of a novel justice.
