84 87% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) - Apr 16, 2019
"I feel like this doesn’t get enough credit. Rogue One may not push the needle for the franchise, and you would be completely fine not watching it as it doesn’t pertain to the main stories, but it’s a very good film nonetheless. You don’t need a lightsaber to tell a good Star Wars story, and Edwards did that. I wish we could’ve got another film with these characters. I also hope Edwards gets an opportunity to do his own Star Wars series, the dude definitely has he chops for it."
81 81% Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) - Apr 16, 2019
"Lucas may have missed with the first 2 episodes in the prequels, but I think he gets this pretty right. It has issues, especially with balancing so many subplots, a lot that weren’t actually fully fleshed, a way too long runtime, and Christensen’s acting actually may have gotten worse, but it nails down the important things it needed to to bridge it to the original trilogy, and that last battle...maybe a bit too overly choreograph, but satisfying nonetheless. Props to Lucas."
89 93% Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) - Apr 16, 2019
"Every time I watch this, I love it more and more. I don’t care if it feels too close to Episode IV, because I think that is a great roadmap to start a new series. Ridley, Boyega, Issac, and Driver are great choices to be the face of the franchise. For a film that has a very strong “passing of the torch” arch, Abrams had a lot to live up to, and him being able to blend pass generation characters with the new ones was something Lucas never could really do. I was really impressed with this."
75 59% Hellboy (2019) - Apr 13, 2019
"I really don’t think this is the shit show people are making it out to be. It has issues, especially with the lack of good affects, but Harbour is a good Hellboy, he isn’t Perlman, but I wasn’t expecting that. It does feel unnecessary because it covers the same stuff the previous films did. You can make a case that all the gore and entertaining action is made at the expense of a good story. I think if you have certain expectations set, it’s not bad. I really wouldn’t mind a sequel."
76 64% Us (2019) - Apr 13, 2019
"I definitely enjoyed this, but not as much as everyone else. It’s not because it’s not scary or anything, I think it blends well with that, but I’m starting to feel this trend where Peele is making these movies to just be different, he overextends arches that don’t need it. It’s cool that he wants to have it a deeper meaning, but it’s not necessary, especially when you slap and have to explain the film to the audience. It’s too over the head, and doesn’t leave much suspense."
77 67% Captain Marvel (2019) - Mar 17, 2019
"I’ve kind of got a thing for Brie Larson, so this movie is automatically gonna get a few brownie points, but as a movie, Captain Marvel kinda feels like it’s just there. I like it, but it doesn’t really have anything that stands out about it. Jackson and Mendelsohn are both great, and a 80-90’s setting is fun too, but there isn’t one scene that has me like “damn, I need more of this” I wanna see more, and hopefully we’ll get more, it just feels like a bridge to something bigger."
74 55% Ted 2 (2015) - Feb 04, 2019
"Watching both of them back to back, part of me thinks this is better. Unlike the first, this actually has an arch, reason to exist, and it’s actually a pretty good topic. However, it plays on so many tropes from the first, and its kind of annoying. I feel like this would be so much better if it became its own entity, it still has that MacFarlane touch, and if you like it, you’ll probably like this. I like this, but I’m still a little dissapointed because it could be better."
74 55% Ted (2012) - Feb 04, 2019
"Ted is very much a Seth MacFarlane project, almost too much you could say. Ted definitely has some funny moments, I certainly don’t get bored watching it, but it’s all pointless. There isn’t really any story arch to it, it’s just a bunch of scenes strung together, with little subplots here and there. Mark Wahlberg does a lot for me, and him and Ted have good chemistry, but MacFarlane’s talent doesn’t really translate well to a full blown movie. Family Guy suits him better."
97 98% Need for Speed (2014) - Jan 30, 2019
"I will defend this movie to death, I think it’s amazing for what it is. It will never win any awards and most swept it under the rug, but I think it tells a decent story, as I can get behind Aaron Paul in this. The racing and action...it’s just amazing. The absence of CGI is a positive, better than anything in Fast and Furious. You can make the argument it’s a little long, but I don’t notice it. It’s a good revenge story with fast cars...and Michael Keaton...who doesn’t love him?"
76 64% Glass (2019) - Jan 22, 2019
"Glass has a lot of Shyamalan cliches, and you can kind of see him struggle to flesh out this finale because of that. Bruce Willis does seem kind of left out, and some ideas and beliefs are consistently shoved in your face without much progression to the arch. However, Shamaylan has some very beautiful cinematography, and McAvoy deserves lot of praise for his performance. On top of this, I thought this closed nicely and hit what it was going for. Pretty content with this."
