Cinema Addict - 1926 Film Ratings

Bio: Catching up on TV (which I don't really want to rate on the same scale as movies), and deleting some absurdly high ratings for movies that I was obsessed with in--but haven't seen since--like 2004.

Getting to the point where reading my old reviews makes me uncomfortable.

60 20% Top Gun: Maverick (2022) - Sep 27, 2022
"Only watched to be in the loop. Good action editing, the human drama kinda went in one ear out the other"
50 10% Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) - Sep 27, 2022
"Has some funny moments, mostly at the beginning, but not enough to overcome the awful exposition, mind-numbing plot, garbage CGI battles"
70 40% Mouthpiece (2018) - Sep 20, 2022
"Cool idea, mostly well-executed. Production values are a little clunky, the film’s reach sometimes exceeds its grasp. And it’s pretty overwrought even when it’s trying very hard not to be (would be interesting to see the multiple-actors conceit applied to other, less tragic scenarios). But it’s good, it works."
60 20% L'été l'éternité (2021) - Sep 06, 2022
"When it’s being serious it’s slightly unbearable, the teenage actors putting on unconvincing scowls of distress. But I enjoyed that second-act digression, especially Villanova, so it eventually won me over"
60 20% Nope (2022) - Aug 27, 2022
"Good buildup, great second act, bit of a lame, silly, overlong payoff. The central conceit about eye-contact is not well sold, and everything depends on the viewer buying it. I did not buy it. The two plot devices did not connect. I did not care what happened to Keke Palmer"
70 40% Toni Erdmann (2016) - Aug 27, 2022
"Made me laugh when it was supposed to, and cover my face in embarrassment. The length is fine, it makes sense to hang with these slowly changing characters for so long. I had issues with many of the dialogue scenes; it often gave me a feeling of bad improv, with actors seeming like they don’t know what to say in response to each other’s ad-libbed lines. No idea if that’s what was actually happening, but that’s the feeling I got, and it’s not a vibe I enjoy"
70 40% Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011) - Aug 22, 2022
70 40% The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) - Aug 20, 2022
"There’s many great things about it, such as the legendary denouement. But I think I agree with Eastwood’s use of the word “bloated”. The pacing is catatonic, scenes drag. Wallach’s antics grow tiresome, and then the sappy music kicks in and you realise you’re supposed to find him sympathetic. Very weird that this is considered his best; it has its moments, but the one before this and the one after it are both immeasurably cooler"
80 67% Black Medusa (2021) - Aug 15, 2022
"Probably derivative and exploitative, but ignorant old me thought it was cool as fuck"
70 40% Beasts Clawing at Straws (2020) - Aug 14, 2022
"Good fun, and entertaining, though it feels overstuffed and scattered at times, and the music frequently undermines the tone."
