"The story’s not that original, and the structure is huge goddamn mess, but I thought it was cool. It might be the purest live action adaptation of a manga/anime I’ve seen. The visual effects were absolutely incredible, especially in regards to Alita herself. Rosa Salazar was great, too. Really fun action sequences and nice production design, too. I really hope this gets a sequel, not only because I want to see more, but because it frustratingly didn’t really have an ending."

"While it didn’t quite live up the huge hype, I really enjoyed this. Probably the best thing about it was the animation - it was absolutely brilliant. It was bright and colourful and clever and kinetic and just a pure comic book brought to life. I just loved watching it. The story was fun, and I liked the characters and their respective voice actors, too. It also had a nice “anyone can be Spider-Man” message. It was funny and heartfelt and a total visual feast."

"It was pretty fun buddy/road trip comedy. De Niro was great, and although Grodin wasn’t as good, I enjoyed their chemistry together. It’s definitely one of those movies that makes you say, “They don’t make ‘em like this anymore”. Some pretty funny moments, a couple of good action sequences, and a bit of an annoying score make this a pretty quintessential ‘80s action comedy."
|50 25%||Pet Sematary (2019) - Aug 06, 2019
"I was kinda split on the changes - some were dumb, but some were not bad. I thought it was pretty decent until the third act, where it all fell apart for me. I didn’t think the direction or editing were very good, and there were some pretty average visual effects. The young actress who played the little girl wasn’t really up to the task either. So, yeah, I guess overall, I didn’t really like it, apart from what was already in the novel."

"I’m still not quite sure if Zahler is a genuinely great filmmaker or not. I guess he’s good, because he does make entertaining films, but I don’t know if there’s much artistic merit here. It’s a slow burn, but there’s plenty of good tension towards the end. I thought Mel Gibson was better than I’ve seen him in a very long time. Definitely some good scenes but also some very pretentious dialogue. Worth watching."
