A horror story in which Superman is the monster
It's like an Elseworld story writer by comic book icon, Frank Miller. Somehow they got away with telling Superman's Story: A married couple who own a farm in Kansas are tryin to have a baby so desperately that they think it's a god sent when one comes in a rocket ship from space. Now, in the DC Extended universe this situation lead to a lackluster film, but in the hands of James Gunn who directed Guadians of the Galaxy vol one and two for the marvel cinematic universe, it becomes a unique horror experiment similar to his film Slither.
It's disturbing, like the Omen disturbing, and they made this disturbance fun to watch. Like all other adopted kids he gets a little touchy when discovering the truth about himself. Adding in the superpowers only makes his lashing out far more scary.
It seems goofy at times but the goofy stuff only helps make the situation more frightening. You'll laugh but at the same time you'll be like "that was messed up"
It's a bad movie, yet I loved it so much.
It does what a good movie is suppose to it tocjed your heart. Despite how faulty it is as a film it stuck to its formula and I could not help but to...cheer for the cheerleaders.
Just to nice and warm to not let it melt your heart
Long Shot (2019)
Political commentary as it's funnest.
It's been a while since I've seen Seth Rogen in something funny. I think this more had to do with the fact that he had not made a movie in a while vs. the fact that he has not made a funny movie.
Anyway, like they said in the trailer we have a reverse Pretty Woman situation in which Charlize Theron plays a women so perfect she should be President of the United States, and some how, Fred, a dude who looks and acts like Seth Rogen is able to win her heart. In fairness the two have known each other since they were young so I feel that he has somewhat of an advantage.
The movie has a very progressive message feed to us with a spoonful of laughter. I don't want to sound like I'm not into the message, I am, because it was a message of complete equality that I've been down with, but realistically, it is a comedy that they are trying to tell this important message in and it's a really funny one to so I hope everyone gets the point.
The only down side to this is the fact that their was not enough O'Shea Jackson jr in this movie. Dude has as much personality as his father Ice Cube and I love watching this dude on the screen.
Overall, great laughs all around.
Not a big enough Lord of The Rings fan to truly appreciate this drama
Here's the thing. Never that big of a fan of Lord of the Rings. I liked it when it came out and thought nothing of it when they stopped making the movies. Not that I'd did not enjoy them at the time but it's not my thing.
I kinda felt this movie was trying to tell is the story of Tolkien as it he was Fordo sort of, and the problem with that is that he's not Fordo, so the story telling I found boring.
It's long a boring and did not capture my imagination as my mind wonders from boredom.
It's too bad this movie was more about the brother hood Tolkien made as a child over his relationship with his wife. The only parts I found interesting was Nicolas Hoult interacting with Lily Collins.
If you loved the books go see and even if you are just familiar with the movie, which the film does give a little poke to, this could be interesting. Everyone else stay home
The formula did not work here.
Hard to say anything was actually wrong with this film. It should have worked perfectly.
It's the typical story of every animated movie in which the outsider was happy with the life they are living, yet they know they can be more than what the world just expects of them and sets out to prove it.
It's a good message, but in ugly dolls, never has that message felt so worn out. I saw the ending coming and the film was not interesting enough for me to be distracted enough not too.
What really hurts is how many singing stars they had on this thing just for the songs to be so mediocre.
This movie is just going through the motions. No top hit here
The Intruder (2019)
Dennis Quad makes the movie with his crazy!
No offense to Micheal Ealy, but you got two reasons to see this flick:
One, Dennis Quad plays an amazing psychopath. His demeanor in this is horrific and creepy. If I was a sexy woman like Meagan Good I would be scared out of my mind.
Speaking of Meagan Good, man she looked good! She is all types of sexy and it was a pleasure watching her Ooze it on the screen.
I think Quaid is some where in his 60s and with that in mind he is a well kept man. Hot enough to possibly snag "the goods" without having to resort to being a homocial manic.
Altogether, the movie itself is lame, but still well worth it to see Dennis Quaid terrorize with fury.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
All Great Things...
Man! I thought Infinity War was off the hook, but this one...
A perfect compliment to a two part epic. It was what I thought it was going to be, a lot of talk, a lot of planning, but amazingly it was not boring. Not for one second!
Infinity War was the moment we were all waiting for and then they tell us they are going to split it into two films. End Game could have gone south with this choice, but it did not. It's always exciting, especally if you are a comic book fan or have been watching these movies for now eleven years.
Don't want to say too much, but shine a light on Robert Downey Jr. who got to perfect his Iron Man persona to the point where Hugh Jackman can't even surpass him. Captain American is giving all us FanBoys everything we ever wanted to see and Thor...underperforms with hilarious results (and hopefully will create 2019's most popular costume for a certain type of man). Loved Mark Rufflo in this film and Thanos baby, still the baddest villain around.
It's fun it's dramatic, it's like Lord of the Rings with one less movie. Three hours well worth the ticket.
Stan Lee would be proud! Nuff said!
The Curse of La Llorona (2019)
Not bad, not sure if it's worth the ticket price
I went to see this in IMAX figuring I would not get another chance to once Avengers: end game comes out and dominates those theatres.
Another one from the conjuring universe taking place in the 70s, I was not sure how Linda Cardinleni was going to be the star of this if the movie is about a Central American ghost.
Well, if you don't know the plot, she plays a social worker who takes away a Latina's kids cause she assumed she was abusing them. Turns out it was this Mexican spirt who the latina Woman decided to pray to to take away the social workers kids like hers were taken away.
Linda Cardenlini is so cute however that I think no Latin man would care if she was the star of this picture.
My favorite part of the movie is the charater Raymond Cruz played in it. This guy is similar to that couple who have all the hunted materials in their basement. Hopefully he'll be in another movie and maybe make a cross over with them.
Anyway, the movie was creepy, something that the conjuring universe likes to focus on over being actually scary. It was not creepy enough, however. Though l like there attempts to make light of the genre these conjuring movies are thriving in, it was a little too little of this in between. Too much set up during the hunting which slows down the horror pace.
It was good but I could have saw this on a regular theatre screen or at home.
It did have something to it.
Should start out by stating this is not my cup of tea. This movie is more for the teen/young adults and I'm not that target audience.
It's starts out with the typical formala that all the girls would love about a good girl who falls for the bad boy.
This movie does have some enhanced archetypes: the protagonist is a goodie two shows on eleven, her college roommate is met to be the very polar opposite. I mean everything about her scrams unchristian, and the bad boy seems to be just a pretty face with a British accent.
But the movie starts to get better. Like the fantasy of the young teen novel seems to wear off and the story becomes very grounded and down to earth as it progresses.
I think if I was a teenage women I would have not found it so dull
Mia et le lion blanc (2018)
Leans totally on the corny side.
What's really interesting about the movie is how interactive the actors seem to be with the lion or lions in a movie about lion preserving.
I'm sure some of it was digital manipulation but how much I cannot tell. Just a thought how familiar the animal got with the people.
Anyway, I got the message. It's a good one but this flick was too much about he message and it did loose a few entertaining factors because.
Yet, still enjoyed it.
The Best of Enemies (2019)
Way better than Greenbook.
So the fact that this movie came out in April means its chances of getting nominated for an Oscar are slim, which is tragic. I feel like this story about two people from completely different worlds that hate each other coming together through communication (with a slight push), is more insightful than what Greenbook
Sam Rockwell gave a stellar performance in this movie. I think it's similar to what Ed Norton did in American History X so long ago.
I loved Teraiji P. Hensen in this one as well. What a great combo of actors going on here.
It's a very uplifting and heart warming story, but at the same time it's real. Does not feel like magic happen, only understanding.
This should be what the academy is looking at.
It sucks cause that trailer made this look like it was going to be the funniest movie around, but the follow up from the producers of Girls Trip, made a movie not as funny as Girls Trip.
I'm gonna say it's attempt to appeal to both 38 year old women and the 13 year olds they may turn into pulls this movie in two directions and loosened whatever hold they tried to have on me.
The joke got repetitive. The movie is about a grown women stuck in a child's body and they ran with it but it got tired real quick.
Decent acting was a saving grace, but could not save a plot that seems worn out from the very frist scene.
I was worried about this reboot, but this is good!
I was kinda hating on David Harbor as the new Helboy, but they did something similar to what happen with Aquaman, they surrounded this dude with enough bells and whistles and focus on making the film good overall.
Harbor played Helboy his way which was less low key than Ron Pearlman's charater, it's hard to separate Pearlman from Helboy, so Harbor had big shoes to fill and he filled them well.
Amazing cast. Once again kudos to Ed Skrien whose not in the movie because he graciously bowed out to allow Daniel DAE Kim to get the role, which he was perfect for. The audience wAnted to see diversity and Helboy delivered.
A pretty epic story. I don't know if it's actually based on one of the Helboy comics but I have to say I loved the imagery. Del Turo's Helboy brought Mike Mignola's pages to life, this new director, bought in his own artist and it was good. Very comic book and at the same time very Heavy Metal, so that works for me.
Would I have rather seen a Helboy 3 rather than a Helboy reboot? I'll just say I'm not disappointed at all with what I got.
Finally! The DC extended universe is giving use superb content
Shazam comes in at number three of the best DC universe movies following Aquaman and Wonder Woman.
It's a family friendly movie, which is different from DC's other movies, but this is how Captain Marvel ( that's right) should be done. They got all there other heroes bitting off their biggest money maker, Batman, somewhat altering what the charater is all about so that it can be dark cause that's suppose to be hip( it's not)
This movie was fun like it should be and you really get the full idea of what Shazam is like as a charater. Zachary Levi was perfect as the man child.
Also loved Mark Strong who just makes the perfect villian (possibly the nicest guy on Earth). Also liked the performance of the actress who played Dara, and I don't want to spoil anything, but that little girl becomes a dream Come true in the thrid act.
Very similar to Spider-Man homecoming as it's really a story about a foster kid trying to find a place to call home. A heart warming story wrapped in a superhero cape.
High Life (2018)
Not bad science fiction.
Why is it whenever a black hole is envolved in a science fiction story, we get over metaphorical about it?
High Life is a slow moving science fiction film. On the cheap side so they have to cut coners on certain science fiction parts but at the same time some of the basic visuals were amazing and gets you into that science fiction mood.
The story was a little odd for me, or rather the way the story was delivered was very very art film like, and it made the film drag slower, but overal, its a solid peice of Sci-Fi.
Storm Boy (2019)
A boy and his bird.
It's a beautiful story. I was not expecting such a amazing tale.
It's about an old man who tells his granddaughter about a relationship he had with a pelican when he was a young boy.
Everything just lined up perfectly with the story. I especially love the score playing in the background.
Thought it was incredible that they were able to get these birds to do such good acting.
Pet Sematary (2019)
That was kinda creepy.
It's been years since I seen the original adaption of the Stephen King novel and I remember the sequel to that adaption much better, but it seems very different. Wonder if they were following the book more?
If that is the case than that explains the very slow burn which ends in complete pay off. The story gets dull and it does take awhile for the creepiness to take effect, but I feel it's worth it.
The Mustang (2019)
Good film about the human condition.
It was interesting. The movie shows what we typically think of movies about people in prison, and somehow they added horses to the element.
For the most part the movie feels like a Made-for-TV movie used as propaganda to show how successful the this horse program is.
The program is about certain states of the U.S.A which seem to have a Wild mustang problem, and in order to deal with it, the federal state penitentiary lunched a program to have prisoners train these mustangs to be domestic enough to sell to people.
I thought Matthias Schoenaerts was good. I liked what he did with his character. very low key, but his attitude was perfect.
Also a fan of Jason Mitchell and Bruce Dern, who give good performances as well.
I enjoined it.
The Highwaymen (2019)
Good cop drama
Is a bit of a slow burn which gives it a wid west feel, although it's a very calm movie about Cowboys.
Reminds me of the frist season of True detective, does not hurt that one of its stars, Woody Harrelson is starting in this.
I do like how The Highwaymen does not glamorize Bonnie and Clyde. The movie is all about the famous Texas Ranger that brought them down and the Public Enemies are used as a back drop.
Very slow at times which allows you to soak up the environment, but overall a good crime drama.
That was pretty good!
It's worthy of the term magical!
I don't know what I was expecting going into this but I came out with a smile on my face it was so uplifting.
Disney has been turning a lot of their animated films into live action and I was scared, like everyone else, that they would ruin Dumbo in the process. I was wrong.
Techically the first 6 to 12 mins of the film was actually a live action adaption of Dumbo, then what they did was add a new element to the story, this time getting humans more involved with Dumbo.
Overall I am amazed.
The Beach Bum (2019)
Is this suppose to be the sequel to the Big Lebowski?
Seriously! It's been A while since I've seen Big Lebowski, but didn't he have sex with a rich chick and then at the end of the movie Sam Elliot tells us that there might be a little Dude?
Well according to The Beach Bum, the Dude who now looks like he should be selling Lincoln cars, semi settled down with that chick in order to watch little dude turn into a 22 year old woman( The timing is near perfect. When did Lebowski come out? 97 98?), and now the Dude is a wirter with one hot book that put him on the map and he becomes to burn out and lazy to pull off another( this part actually does sound like the Dude).
Well at lease Harmony korine's version of the Dude, which overall is not as good as the Cohen Brothers verson. Props to the film for dishing out some great performances by "actor" Snoop Dogg, Jonah Hill, in a cameo appearance Martian Lawrence, in an overplayed cameo appearance, and Last and least Zac Efron.
The movie seems like Korine is taking leftovers from Spring Breakers (now that's a cult classic) and trying to put it together to make this movie. Almost like one would put together a hot dog.
It has its moments but overall it's just ok. If you're a fan of the oddity that is Harmony Korine, this will make you laugh out loud when it gets bizarre, other than that, waiting for those moments can bore you and make your mind wonder.
Hotel Mumbai (2018)
That was really intense!!
This story drains you.
It's based on actually events of a hotel taken hostage and were being slaughtered.
It's dramatic and suspenseful, a few scenes were hard to watch but this thing got my heart going on every single level.
Good acting by Dev Patel, Armie Hammer and the rest of the ensemble. They really got me into their characters, which made the pull on the heart muscules even harder.
The Aftermath (2019)
Little dull, but I liked the overall story, and the two leads had great chemistry.
Set in the aftermath of World War 2, it starts out as a story about the British and their attempts to help the Germans get their feet up again. Help ofcourse that is unwanted.
Watching this movie over 70 years after is perfect cause it's easy to see both sides of a picture. Not all German's are Nazis but all of them were treated like it (sounds familiar), and you can't blame the Brits for thier dislike of Germany at that time, so no matter who much like jerks they are being, they never became too dislikeable
Then the main plot kicks in about a love affair. When a German man who in every way is a victim of this war falls for a British woman who is married to a military officer and hates all that is German for taking her son away.
Even though the movie is about the whole idea of the hateful tension turning into a romantic fling, the movie was doing just fine with the subplot of reflecting how the aftermath of World War 2 is similar to the wars we are fighting now.
I will say the chemistry between Keira Knightley and Alexander Skarsgard was great to watch. It seems like an effort in great acting because the flow between knightley and Jason Clarke,who plays her husband in the film is faulty, which I think it was met to be in order to bring focus on the affair.
It reminds me of a film called the Promise with the huge difference of the Promise pretending to be a movie about a romantic triangle when indeed it was a film about The Armenian genecide.
Overall, it was a good looking romance picture I wish was more about the Aftermath of World War 2
The Dirt (2019)
Sex drugs and Crue!
It was outstanding as far as I'm concern. Hard to say which is better Bohemian Rhapsody or the Dirt.
Not really, actually. Rhapsody focuses on how epic the music of Queen is while the Dirt focus on how epic the band is, which I think is a better concept. I already am aware of the music that the Crue does so I wanted to know them. It was high octane and full of energy from beginning to end and it Pulls no punches on what what the Crue is.
Telling the story of the band as a narrative, I'm a little surprise how much the movie shares stories and info from their episode of Behind the Music. As surprising as I was of how amazing a Tommy Lee Machine Gun Kelly was.
In comparison some of the events seem out of place, but the timeline they used help to cram all of the stories into a two hour film, and they have a lot of stores.
It's a very MTV fast pace music video like film. Perfect for the Crue. Although this met that the actual music suffered.
I feel like if you liked Queen, Boheman Rhapsody made you love the music. The Dirt made me love Crue more but thank god I already love the music cause it did little to make me love the music more.
What the Dirt has over Rhapsody is that the Dirt does treat the Crue as a complete band. Each member has a bigger than life personality. Even Mick Mars who is portrayed as a grumpy old timer compared to the others. Boheman only saught to make Freddie Mercury's portail by Remi Malick Oscar worthy.
So, I give it to the Dirt. It's not going to make any new fans for Motley Crue's music but it captures more of what the entire band was than bohemian Rhapsody did for Queen. Too bad, Crue's no longer acceptable behavior means it's dobutful this film is going to get an Oscar.
Get out! Get out!
Once again Jordan Peele makes a movie that feels like an extened version of a sketch from Key and Peele. A little more flushed out but not as funny. More creepy and horrifying, but a little too artistic. I never quite got what was going on.
But I loved Lupita and Winston Duke in it.
Very strange follow up, but I like it.
