60 51% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) - Aug 02, 2019
"Buddy cop movie where the narrative is a mixture of James Bond and Mission Impossible and the bad guy is a super soldier with Terminator vision, enhanced strength and a cool self-driving motorbike. Feels like a true Fast & Furious feature where family is the driving force and as a theme is actually stronger here than most of the franchise. Is over the top and fairly cartoonish, runs a bit too long with multiple storylines setting up the future but overall its a well done fun action flick"
40 21% The Fate of the Furious (2017) - Apr 13, 2017
"The action and stunts from a James Bond film mixed with the plotlines and acting from a typical daytime soap. Charlize Theron as the main antagonist is no Jason Statham and she doesn't come close to matching his OTT performance in the last movie. The F&F series peaked at No. 5 and although this movie is better than films 1-4 it doesn't reach 5-7. Like the other films the best aspect has to be the racial diversity of the cast. Make sure to avoid trailers as they spoil every single action sequence"
60 51% Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) - Dec 15, 2016
"Slow start leads to strong finish. Like last years TFA this feels like a really well made fan-film. While TFA repeated storylines from the original trilogy Rogue One apes the aesthetics and overall designs. The CGI representation of the late Peter Cushing felt off and a bit creepy. Darth Vader was cool but unnecessary and there's too many cameos. I like the multi-cultural cast of characters who are all well acted and how the film successfully shows the scale of the huge structures seen onscreen."
25 2% Suicide Squad (2016) - Dec 12, 2016
"Bad film. It has the same setup as the Power Rangers TV show. Makes me think back fondly on the theatrical release of Batman V Superman, a film that I was surprised by how much of a mess it was. So far the new run of DC movies have one positive in Man of Steel, a film that overall I'd give a thumbs up but wasn't a complete success. Here's hoping Wonder Woman breaks the downward trend and ends up being a good movie but I'm not holding my breath. (I watched the extended cut of Suicide Squad)"
40 21% Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018) - Jun 08, 2018
"Competently made, fairly enjoyable but unremarkable. Even more so than The Force Awakens or Rogue One this feels like big budget fan fiction. A Wookieepedia article made for the big screen, designed to satisfy old school Star Wars fans by answering every single question you have about Han Solo. Paul Bettany as Dryden Vos is good, effectively menacing but didn't have enough screen time. Although the weakest entry of the new Star Wars movies it's still watchable but in the end quite forgettable. "
35 12% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) - Sep 12, 2016
"Disappointing. Lots of CGI but the actors are so poorly integrated with the visual effects that at times it looked like a made for TV movie. Feels like a film from a decade ago and is often rehashing storylines from earlier X-men films. Jennifer Lawrence seems to not care about this film and gives a flat effort. The final battle reminded me of Fantastic Four (2005). A city is destroyed, I think maybe Cairo? It passes the time but overall it's not great. What a waste of Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse."
30 6% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) - Mar 16, 2017
"Some decent production design and vaguely interesting ideas however the editing throughout was terrible. Stop cutting constantly, hold the shot and let me see what's going on. Squanders the potential from final scene of the last movie and skips to the aftermath. It's billed as 'The Final Chapter' and unlike 'Underworld' it feels final. The Resident Evil film series isn't great but generally is passable entertainment for a few hours. This entry was pretty bad and might be the worst in the series."
80 87% Arrival (2016) - Nov 14, 2016
"Great film. Well shot and solid performances from the cast. Has a lot in common with the 1997 film 'Contact.' A good adaptation of the novella 'Story of Your Life.' The picture is much too dark though."
60 51% Aquaman (2018) - Dec 15, 2018
"The most consistently entertaining of the recent DC movies. Filled with well directed and clearly shot action and fight scenes with standout sequences in the Trench and Sicily that are exceptional. Plenty of stilted overly expositional dialogue along with too many jokes that don't land. Lots of colourful visual effects and bizarre creature designs but by the end the sheer amount of CGI feels overwhelming. Mamoa has fun as Aquaman with the swagger of a rock star performing at a sell-out concert. "
51 40% The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) - Jun 08, 2019
"Enjoyable enough movie that's well directed and looks great but the amount of product placement made it feel like I was watching a 2 hour commercial. Cinnabon and e-harmony jumped out as the most obvious, as well as making Greenland and Iceland the next go to holiday destination, but here are some others I noticed: Life, Papa Johns, Kodak, KFC, Google, Facebook, Instagram, Heineken, Sesame Street, jansport, Air America and Air Greenland "
