LEGO DC Super Heroes - Aquaman: Rage Of Atlantis
Well it was certainly no worse than _Justice League_. Let's hope it is worse than the other _Aquaman_ movie coming out this year though.
It's bad, but having a definitive lead character, and the rest of the heroes as a supporting cast is working better than the ones where they try to make everyone share the spotlight equally ...
The Secret Life of Pets 2
‘The Secret Life of Pets’ is a weird franchise; I don’t see kids really walking around with Max plushies, nor do I see stories filled with toys from the movie. The original unexpectedly made all this money and so now we have this generic film. There are many, many worse films you could show you children if they like animals - it’s a harmless 90 minutes and its not like their aren’t laughs. I just wish the film was a whole lot more creative.

7 Days in Entebbe
Entebbe is a subject I have been interested in from an early age, having seen all three of the previous movies made on the subject (Operation Thunderbolt, Victory at Entebbe and the best, Raid on Entebbe in 1976) but I also did decided to undertake factual research into the raid some time before this film was ever embarked upon ...
It’s just a shame that 'X-Men' was never able to live up to its potential in this form. Drawn of clichés, a tired script and a tired cast, it’s a big wet flop of a film where it looked like the cast were just there to collect their cheques. It’s probably something to wait for a digital release and watch on a rainy Sunday afternoon where you can fall asleep during the exhausting middle section and wake up at the mildly less-exhausting end.
I can't elevate _Eighth Grade_ to the status that my peers have, it just wasn't all that to me. But it was still very good, and very real, that tangible sort of youth that comes with dedication to the format.
_Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Mad props to Melissa McCarthy for turning it around with this after _Happytime Murders_ and _Life of the Party_. Actually after basically every single thing I've seen her in up until this point. I honestly can't think of a single role I've liked her in. Until Lee Israel of course, because as her, in this, McCarthy is great.
Respect for Richard E. Grant in the supporting role as well.
This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman wrote and directed this tear-jerking rom-dram, which looks eerily familiar to the NBC series, give or take a couple A-list cast members (Olivia Wilde, Oscar Isaac, Annette Bening, Mandy Patinkin, Antonio Banderas … breathe). Like Us, the film pulses between the characters’ mysteriously interconnected narratives, which are set between N.Y.C. and Spain
Sorry to Bother You
_Sorry To Bother You is “unapollogetic”, “unafraid”, “imaginative”._
These are the reviews of audiences, and critics; it’s hard to find someone that didn’t like this movie (unless you’re going to burrow through the Rotten Tomatoes audience reviews, in which case I’m sorry.)
The cast is packed with familiar faces: Lakeith Stanfield (as Cassius) who also happened to be in _Get Out_, Jermaine Fowler who had just finished work on CBS’ _Superior Donuts_, Danny Glover ...
I'm really glad that I didn't read the blurb for _10x10_, because the mystery of the dynamic between the two leads is what kept me invested. Having now read it, I think it might have ruined me if I had known what was happening going in. Although if you have read it yourself, _10x10_ might still be worth seeing for the climax, it's not strong enough to truly recommend ...
Bad Times at the El Royale
_Bad Times At The El Royale_ was exceptional. Through its preview period, I was hooked from the teaser trailer to the 24th TV Spot released. Drew Goddard knew how to make a wonderous and exciting thriller through its magnificent casting and so much more. All these trailers set high expectations which made me worry a little bit as I don’t like getting myself too excited for movies because sometimes, I get very disappointed. But with this, it exceeded my high expectations. _Bad Times At The El Royale_ just crushed it and ...
Yet another anticipated film from an actor-turned-director is Boy Erased, the work of Golden Globe nominee Joel Edgerton, who wrote and stars in the film.
The flick follows the recently outed son of a Baptist preacher, Jared (Lucas Hedges), after he’s forced to partake in the church’s gay conversion program. Based on the critically acclaimed memoir by Garrard Conley, Boy Erased features an all-star cast which, in addition to Hedges and Edgerton, boasts Oscar winners ...
Luca's "Suspiria" brought me no words.
The horror in this movie is not like anything else I've ever heard or seen. The sheer film in Luca's "Suspiria" is not like anything that is made by major movie studios such as Columbia, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Disney, and the like. Director Luca Guadagnino transitioning from the LGBTQ+ drama adaptation "Call Me By Your Name" — transitioning to the avant-garde, psychological study in his version of famed ...
Hot Summer Nights
There should be more films made that take place in the 90s. And they should all star Timothee Chalamet and Maika Monroe. They're electrifying in Hot Summer Nights. This film is a bit of a mess at first, tonally jarring, and feels like Scorsese/P.T.Anderson-lite at times. But if you're going to borrow, borrow from the greats. It has a great soundtrack and is surprisingly dark by the end, ending on a note both mysterious ...
I sorta don't mind movies that throw you in the deep end in terms of setting. No explanation, just "Werewolves and ghosts are real, deal with it, you wanna know how our werewolves and ghosts differ from somebody else's? Watch the damn movie, you'll figure it out". And that aspect of _Slice_ totally worked for me. But there was other things that didn't. Things like this playing out more like a couple of back-to-back episodes of a TV show than movie, a TV show we didn't get to watch the first ...
White Boy Rick
There is an another more compelling story behind White Boy Rick - the tale of the FBI's manipulation of a young witness, grimy Detroit cops, a dishonest mayor and over the top sentences for non-violent crimes.
Unfortunately, the motion picture concentrates more on the connections between a low-life single parent and his children, which is a significantly less captivating story. Much slower than anticipated.
Overall I liked The Nun it was a spooky fun movie with some pretty good shots and scenes (lighting, camera angles, and such). The transitions from one scene to another was a bit off and the story overall had a more fantasy tone over the more grounded and realistic tone The Conjuring and Annabelle movies had. Much of the story felt like it was just forced to setup a shot or scene which does hurt it. It isn't a perfect movie but I'd watch it again. It is like Indiana Jones ...
_Triple Frontier_ seems to want to say some important things about the way the US simultaneously uses its soldiers to enforce its will on other nations, yet also completely fails to take care of said soldiers, especially after they've retired. But that really seems like an afterthought in a pretty baseline classic heist formula. Nobody fails _Triple Frontier_ particularly, it just gets lost trying to pick between a brodown and a message ...
The Devil's Doorway
> _I couldn't get my mind around how the sisters could leave that home in 1961, close the gates when it closed down, with 796 children buried beneath in the tunnels in coffins, a lot of them in the sewage tank area as we now know. What kind of mentality would leave that place without acknowledging that so many burials were there, so many precious lives were lost? The ideal would be to ...
A Simple Favor
First and foremost, this film feels like someone went to their local grocery store, grabbed a random three-dollar mystery novel off the checkout shelf, and decided to make it a movie with some extremely popular and attractive people. In other words, it's a silly mystery movie with crazy, zany twists and turns.
Some of those twists and turns were easy enough to see coming, but some of them were straight out of left field. In ...
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight
My all-time favourite superhero film (_Batman: The Dark Knight Returns_) is an animated DC movie, so I'm always willing to give a chance to whatever they bring out in my never-ending search to find the next great one. Unfortunately, most end up being pretty poor offerings. But there's a decent number that end up somewhere in the middle, and _Gotham by Gaslight_ is on the higher end of that spectrum in between ...
