"Well, it is palatable; Lawrence is good with physical comedy. However, the problem with this kind of comedy is that it constantly needs to search for the next gag, so it is nearly impossible to avoid that "forced" feeling; the setting does not generate a comedy moment, it is pressed like an orange to come up with something funny."
|60 25%||Star Wars: Visions (2021) - May 27, 2023
"I found them pretty weak, the only one that is worth a damn is the Productions I.G. one (no surprise there). The others have some fine moments here and there, but I watched it mainly to finish, episode 4 had awesome music though."
|55 19%||Snake Eyes (2021) - May 27, 2023
"The huge GI-Joe collection I have in the garage (Snake Eyes being the crown jewel) prevents me from "Not liking" this movie. Gi-JOE characters transferred surprisingly well to live-action movies, and this one is nothing special but yet it flows and the whole setting is kind of believable. They should have used Snake Eyes like The Mandalorian though, that was the real appeal."
|77 65%||An Inconvenient Truth (2006) - May 27, 2023
"17 years later when you look at the overall direction we are taking, it can be said that this film has reached its goal. As a documentary it is well constructed, Gore was a unique mix of Insider/Outsider as far as politics go, so it is neither too militant nor too wishy-washy. It is even entertaining the percolation of Gore's personal grudges and regrets into the story, it makes it more relatable. I salute his persistence, he will be remembered as a positive force in history."

"A cheeky, entertaining action movie, maybe Carpenter's best work. Towards the end it losses a bit of momentum, and becomes a more standard slug-it-out fest; but up to there, they balanced the comedy, props, and martial arts very well. Some prop parts are a bit like "we want to do some monster props, the hell with the scenario we will put them somewhere" though, but the pervading lightheartedness of the movie allows this. Elevators are not good for you."
|73 55%||Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) - May 26, 2023
"It takes its time to set the table but after that, they navigated multiple stories in a coherent manner very well; full of quirky characters played by great actors/actresses, it gets better and better as it gains steam and ends up with an admirable bang."
|61 28%||Avengers: Endgame (2019) - May 26, 2023
"I don't even know if this was really a movie; it felt more like a Super-hero fashion show, one cameo after another interspersed with Hallmark moments and stuck to larger than life cosmic Marvel stuff (that only Jim Starlin somehow puts together into coherent stories). The Infinity Gauntlet is one of the best Marvel works; honestly, it didn't play out well on Silverscreen; the magnitude of events does not match.(30 minutes of Medieval fight with a spaceship hanging in the atmosphere for example)."
|71 49%||Banana Fish (2018) - May 21, 2023
"It has great, great potential; it may be one of the richest anime from a character portrayal point of view. If only they didn't fall into the trap of a constant kidnapping theme (given the underlying bondage atmosphere, I see where that comes from but it didn't do the story any good). The weirdest thing about this anime is how brutally frank it is about all the really messed-up stuff (rape, child abuse, porn, torture) while being so abashed about the actual main theme of a young gay couple."
|41 10%||Justice League (2017) - May 21, 2023
"This is one of the worst super-hero movies ever made, it is just so slow, the first hour is like watching extensive footage of an aftermath of a funeral. And it doesn't get any better at any time point. avengers movies are not great either, but at least they have some momentum, this one is sleep-inducing, gigantic waste of CGI resurces."
|51 15%||Sleepy Hollow (2013) - May 13, 2023
"When you try to do a whole series (several seasons at that!) from a gimmicky idea (What if Ichabod Crane wakes up 200 years later), this is the end result. It might have been a great short film with a bit more thinking on the actual shock of 200 years of time-ump, but when you try to stretch it, it just breaks. The decors are great, those people's amazing work is wasted on this series. I stopped after a season, there is not much to look forward to."
