Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
An Okay Attempt at RE-Rebooting the Franchise
Spider-man Homecoming changes up the formula compared to the previous two Spider-man attempts. This time around Peter isn't just getting his powers; he has had some actual experience with them. There is no longer an Uncle Ben moment as Tony Stark takes over that role. There seemed to be a lot more humor in this movie than the other ones which I can accept given this is a teenage Spider-man who is pretty naive to the magnitude of the situation most of the time.
What this movie lacked at least a good 3/4 of the time was a real story. Spider-man kind of just bounced around giving jokes here and there. We had I think four noteworthy villains but really one was given any significant dialogue. Vulture was a good villain and I liked the whole concept of the character's purpose but I can't say he ever had me worrying for Peter. Besides Tony just seems to be able to swoop in whenever to help out when things get tough which further lessens the stakes throughout the movie.
The one thing this movie has going for it is the fact that they chose Tom Holland for Spider-man. This guy is charming as hell and can really deliver serious and comedic lines with the best of them. He basically had to carry this movie as the direction of this movie was really not one of Marvel's best. The supporting high school cast did well for the time they were given. I find it funny how they were advertising this as a John Hughes type movie, but I have not heard that mentioned once since the release. This movie doesn't focus on the school side any more than the Amazing Spider-Man movies did and neither were really that impactful to their respected stories.
Now how does this movie rank with the others? I think the Amazing SM movie were okay but they had a lot of cringe moments. The best thing had going for them was Peter and Gwen but that is about it those movies along with Spider-man 3 rank below this movie. I did find myself enjoying Homecoming but I can't say I would watch it again anytime soon. Spider-man 2 seems to still be the gold standard.
If you want to see an entertaining summer movie that visually looks great and will have you laughing from beginning to end then check this out. I would still however recommend Baby Driver over this movie though.
Baby Driver (2017)
A Movie Actually Deserving of the Title "Perfect Summer Movie"
I think mostly everyone can find something in this movie that they would enjoy. The chase scenes feel realistic and intense unlike many of the current car focused movies like the Fast and Furious franchise (apparently many of those scenes where shot with a stunt driver and very little CGI if any at all was actually used, which always is nice to see). The music in this movie blends well and never felt out of place. Is it Guardians of the Galaxy level amazing... debatable but Baby Driver will definitely have one of the better soundtracks this year.
The comedy throughout was well timed and most of the characters showed off their own sense of humor. There was really no comic relief character although many of the movies funnier scenes would be attributed to Jamie Foxx. The high level of comedy in this movie should be no surprise as director Edgar Wright known for the Cornetto Trilogy always knows how to insert the right joke.
All of the characters were great for the screen time they were given. My personal favorite was Buddy. When it comes to playing an intimidating character Hamm can do no wrong. He had the right level of charm with don't mess with me that made Baby feel safe and uneasy at the same time. Speaking of Baby, I wasn't too fond of the character right away. He seemed kind of dorky and trying to be cute with the street walking scene. Eventually though he became a rather interesting character, especially when he meets up with the waitress. You start feeling for him and you want those two to make it. James and Elgort had good chemistry and they will probably stand out as one of the better movie couples in 2017.
Everything in this movie was just so well done. The only real hit this movie takes that I can think of after just watching it was that the story kind of dips in the interesting department in the middle. It starts strong and ends with an even bigger bang. I believe the climax and ending are worth the price of the theater ticket alone. This is a can't miss movie. I find myself debating if this is a movie that I have to see in the theaters twice which I rarely even consider. There however is no doubt in my mind that this will be a store purchase as I can see myself watching this movie over and over again.
Wonder Woman (2017)
I Came Away Satisfied With the Movie, but Wasn't Impressed
Let it be known that I am a sucker for these superhero movies. If there is one that is going to come out soon; you better believe I already know about it. I usually walk away enjoying them very much (giving the scores 7, 8 or 9 on a regular basis). Now I am not saying it is a bad movie as you can tell by the 7 stars listed above. It is just getting more praise than it really deserves.
When I first heard about the plan for the movie; I thought well it is going to take place in World War I, Steve Trevor is going to be involved, and Wonder Woman will have to stop the Germans. This sounds familiar but as I watched, the films felt relatively more and more similar. The other movie I am talking about is Captain America the First Avenger. Now this is a non spoiler review so I can't give details in why I think these two are so similar but a lot of big plot points remind me of the Cap movie. Currently WW is sitting at an 8.4 and with this many votes I can't see it going below a 7.4, and with Cap at a surprising 6.9 it leaves me scratching my head as both were good.
Now with that point out of the way, I will say this movie did something very well. Presenting a very nice relationship between Steve and Diana. Steve and Peggy were my top duo but I think how there characters in Wonder Woman were written Steve and Diana take first in the chemistry department. Pine's great comedic one liners along with the compassion and kindness he showed Diana really made him a likable character (and to top it off he is Chris Pine). The other thing that made the movie was the villain reveal. It was a refreshing way to thrown the character out there and it was really awesome.
The bad besides the for-mentioned similar-esque story. The Dr. Poison character really was wasted. She was given just terrible lines of dialogue. That was the cringe in the movie, just cliché villain talk. A problem that probably just bugs me but the needless comedy in the movie. MCU does this on a regular basis and it is beginning to annoy me now and I don't want DC to use it. I enjoy the gloom and DC should stick with it, there doesn't need to be scenes just for the laugh as there are some here.
Wonder Woman is a good movie but it is not some sub-genre defining movie. If you are someone who does not go out of there way to watch superhero movies; I think it is okay to wait for this to be released on Blu-ray or whatever your preference.
I will say 7.2/10
It Matches the First Guardians, but in Different Ways
The second installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is mainly centered around Peter finding his father. Then also to some extent the Guardians themselves coming closer together as a family.
Vol 2 had what the first one lacked an amazing villain, with great motivation. The first one ended on a kind of lackluster note, which made audiences question if the writers couldn't come up with an ending given the power they gave their villain. Vol 2's villain was somewhat equal to our hero's power so the end was epic with a dash of comedy. Which is the way to have a superhero movie.
One character made this movie for me. I will not say which character, but his/her arc in this movie gave me more feels then 'Logan'. Not saying Guardians is a better movie but that one scene... man!
The sequel was lacking in some areas, for me the subplots were a major problem. If you bring in new characters, do not have them just as comedic punching bags. They should be developed better given the amount of screen time. In another subplot one of the characters flip- flops motivations way too much. It is hard to track where his/her head is at. Another little thing is the uselessness of the Sovereign. They had no real purpose in the plot of this movie.
Guardians Vol 2 certainly was funny and was very entertaining (never a dull moment); I felt some of the comedy went on longer than need be. I had the reaction at some points like we get it so and so is blank say no more.
I enjoy a good easter egg and this movie had plenty. They were more in your face about the secrets but it was still cool to see. Gunn and crew definitely left me excited for Vol 3.
Kong: Skull Island (2017)
Felt More Like a Toho Movie Which is a Good Thing!
Kong Skull Island primarily takes place in the 1970's or more specific right after the US leaves Vietnam. A crew is sent on an expedition to survey the area for resources, but the real reason is to find proof of King Kong.
Typically with the US movies we see a love story ensue with the blond and the beast as well as some money making side show. That is for the most part disregarded and instead we get a good monster fighting movie. The action was great and well shot especially during the last 20 minutes or so. That period of time really sold the movie for me. Prior to that point I was on the fence if I was really liking what I was seeing.
Kong was once again the sympathetic beast audiences can root for and will continue to root for if this whole planned monster Universe goes as planned (fingers crossed). The other characters are not fully fleshed out but that is excusable since the great monster movies do not need character development. The character that was talked about the most was the comic relief and he had a great story and well timed jokes. There was certainly never a dull moment watching this as monsters just kept coming and the crew just had to survive. Speaking of the characters, Hiddleston and Larson had their moments as well. There wasn't much but there was enough to get attached to them. They had kind of a... well I don't what you call it but they reminded me a lot of Nathan Drake and Elena from Uncharted. If you don't play video games then look them up as that relationship is the best example I could give.
The big thing that annoyed me was the overly clichéd character of Samuel L Jackson I am not going to say anything about the direction his character takes but it was dumb and has been done better.
Some of the action...no wait just the scene when they arrived on the helicopters yes that one. That went on too long to remain enjoyable if they cut that sequence by half I would have enjoyed it a whole lot more.
This was a very good monster movie.I am semi excited what the next one will be given the movies success. I would recommend this if you liked the Toho movies as I believe they helped a little in making this movie. If you just like giant monsters fighting then you can't go wrong with this movie.
Search Party (2014)
A Lower Grade Hangover Movie That Still Delivers Plenty of Laughs
Search Party is about two friends that have to try and rescue Nardo as well as Nardo's relationship with Tracy. This movie does have a similar feeling to the Hangover movies but Search Party lacks the writing and overall direction of the trilogy. What I found this movie to have that the Hangover doesn't is great comedic actors. This might just be personal preference but I find Pally, Miller, and Middleditch to be a lot funnier with their timing and physical comedy. The overall cast is about the only reason I gave this movie a try. I even got a Garfunkel and Oates song in there so that was another plus.
The bad would be the writing as some of the lines were cringing, especially with Middleditch. The movie didn't seem to flow as nicely as the Hangover or for that matter look as sharp. As I said earlier that the three headlines are really funny but their characters were not the best. Pally is supposed to be a semi successful business dude but it never comes off that way. The whole angle of Pally being the put together one of the group didn't vibe with me and it felt out of place. T.J Miller is the typical T.J Miller character so no real complaint there. Middleditch is a combination of Doug and Alan from the Hangover which is fine but they made him overly stupid. So much so that it seemed to downgrade the movie altogether. The supporting cast had some time to shine and I appreciated all of their scenes overall.
I would give this movie a pass unless you are a fan of these actors like I am. Even then I would proceed with caution and low expectations.
A B Movie That Takes Way Too Long To Be Interesting
Enthiran is about a scientist who constructs a robot for military purposes but then complications get in the way. Clocking in about three hours you expect more of a deeper story but no this movie just contains a lot of filler. Namely the unnecessary singing. There had to of been 6-7 songs which is about 30 minutes of the movie. That is just ridiculous and some didn't even match the story. If this film was less than two hours I might have enjoyed it more, as the overall experience wasn't worth the time commitment.
Other negatives I came across was definitely the acting quality for starters. It felt over the top or soap opera quality which is really annoying to hear. The CGI was laughable at times. The acting and CGI reminded me of the 1999 film Inspector Gadget. Except this movie appeared to be a serious film while Inspector Gadget was a cheesy kids movie but the similarities are too glaring to ignore.
The only real positive I found was some of the action sequences and the overall creativeness of those scenes. They were fast paced and at times strange. Strange being like Jim Carrey's The Mask strange. These are the kinds of things I love to see in B action movie scenes the randomness as at least I can get a laugh out of the movie.
Currently this film sits at a 7.1 and is rated in the top 250 for Indian movies. I don't know if I am just missing something or what but this movie just really failed to deliver in my eyes.
No Question, I Had Difficulties Watching This Movie But It Is Not That Bad
After watching this I came away with two major gripes that put this movie below the original 80's version. Let it be clear that I am also not a fan of the original by any means as I rated the first a 6/10 and never had the interest to even try the sequel. So the first big problem was all of the forced one liners throughout. There was simply too many and barely any of them fit the flow of the story. That is probably why the original was so well liked because they were able to blend comedy into a lite supernatural drama. I'm fine with the movie being a clear comedy as at times I did find myself laughing at some of the lines.
The other gripe I had was the weak clichéd villain. You would think that a big brand movie like Ghostbusters would cast someone a little more well known in the role than a former SNL writer. His performance just felt lackluster and I doubt audiences really saw him as a real threat at any point during the movie. Besides him, Bill Murray, and Leslie Jones also seemed to bring pretty weak characters to the screen. I have no idea if Bill Murray was forced to be there but it sure looked like it. Jones just appears to be a one trick pony when it comes to her characters but that hasn't stopped Kevin James (yep, random shot taken), so I'm sure we will continue to see her for some reason. The other three leads also had cringy moments but also some funny scenes that I guessed balanced their scales. Oh and then there was Hemsworth who I thought I would despise given the trailers but turned out to bring the comic relief in an otherwise cringe comedy.
So, just to sum up my overall thought this movie brings a lot of cringe but I can't honestly say that it is a whole lot worse than the original. They are a lot different in tone though. If you want a supernatural drama with sprinkles of comedy then avoid this. If you want a full-on comedy which could be compared to the New Vacation movie or Will Ferrell's recent movies then this could be for you.
Not the Most Enjoyable Movie, but Shows Hints of Excellence
When I heard this spin-off was actually happening; I was at first surprised while also really excited at the possibilities for the story. I am a big fan of the V/H/S movie and Lily's segment was by far my favorite part. It had the right amount of mystery/suspense/gore to leave me infatuated and wanting more.
Fast-forward to the Siren movie and we are given a prequel story to Lily. Much like the segment, a few guys go out looking for a good time but eventually find themselves in a very dangerous situation.
This movie is for a very select demographic, that I just happened to belong.That demographic is the pro Lily demographic where when Lily appears in a movie I'm going to find something to like about it.The acting in this is mainly a miss with a couple of exceptions and the story does have its clichés. There were some other interesting concepts (mainly one) presented but were not fleshed out enough, sad to say. The main and only reason someone should watch this is for Lily. The story really drags without out her as the guys were not interesting in the least.The hints of excellence comes from the inclusion of a new creature that helps carry the story along. Lily's action scenes were also a plus and her characters overall direction throughout the movie. After a good chunk of time the story picks up and for the most part I can safely say I enjoyed what I saw.
I guess as a warning if you are considering giving this movie a try. If you are not a fan of sex and violence in your movies this is something you should stay far away from as that is 85% if not more of this movie. In the stories weak spots they seemed to crank up the those scenes to 11.
A Cure for Wellness (2016)
A Mystery That Will Leave You Uncertain of What is Really Going on Until the Very End
A Cure for Wellness is about an employee who is sent to a wellness center to bring back the company's CEO. Lockhart is very quickly skeptical of the center and tries to unravel the mystery.
This film is simply captivating. The pacing is phenomenal; I had no idea the movie was two and a half hours as it didn't seem that way in the slightest. The movie continually kept my attention with the multitude of twists and turns. The writers did a good job at not being too obvious on the intended direction. While I was viewing I was able to piece together the truth about half way in but in no way was I 100% certain until the end.
The sets, acting and overall mood of this film remind me of Shutter Island. It is dark and depressing for most of it lead by Dane DeHaan of Chronicle/ Amazing Spiderman fame. He was great as the lead character and proved that he could carry a film all by himself. Jason Isaacs was also wonderful as the doctor but he is normally great in everything.
This film is not for the squeamish however as some of the scenes would make you think this is a horror movie not a great mystery movie. Not that I'm against gore as it was very impactful for the story.
The reason I gave this a seven and not higher is the climax for the most part. The movie also had me saying why more than I wanted as some of the scenes were head scratchers. I will leave it at that because anymore might accidentally give something away.
For the most part I enjoyed the experience for what it was and would recommend giving it a try at some point. Especially for fans of Shutter Island.
