84 86% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) - Rated 03 Jul 2024
""War of the Planet of the Apes" concludes the trilogy with a gripping and emotional narrative. Caesar's development as a leader is compelling, and the introduction of Bad Ape adds humor and depth. While the human characters are less interesting, the film excels with its expressive facial acting and well-crafted dialogue. Themes of brotherhood and sacrifice are woven seamlessly into the story. Despite some confusion with ape deaths and a tidy snowstorm, it's a rewatchable and satisfying film."
77 65% Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (2024) - Rated 03 Jul 2024
""Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes" continues the franchise with a visually stunning and emotionally engaging story. Noa's journey from resilience to leadership, amid a backdrop of natural beauty and barbaric apes, is compelling. The film explores themes of compassion and Caesar’s legacy, though it occasionally drags in the third act. Strong performances, especially from Noa’s actor, and impressive production make it a must-watch for fans."
60 30% Reunion (2024) - Rated 03 Jul 2024
""Reunion" is a whodunit murder mystery set at a high school reunion with a strong setup and middle act but a rushed ending. The characters are diverse, with some standouts like Ray and Vivian, though others are over-the-top. Decent performances, particularly from Jillian Bell and Jamie Chung, and humorous dialogue make it engaging. The film lacks a significant theme or message and offers little emotional depth. Enjoyable for a one-time watch but not highly rewatchable."
82 78% The Bikeriders (2023) - Rated 24 Jun 2024
"“The Bikeriders” is a gripping drama about a Midwestern motorcycle club in the ’60s and ’70s. With complex characters like Kathy (Jodie Comer) and Johnny (Tom Hardy), the film explores themes of loyalty, power, and relationships. Exceptional acting, especially from Comer and Hardy, and engaging dialogue drive the story. Despite some confusing time jumps, the plot delivers a strong third act and satisfying ending. Highly rewatchable for its emotional depth and strong performances."
41 9% The Exorcism (2024) - Rated 23 Jun 2024
""The Exorcism" offers a simplistic plot stretched over 90 minutes, with only 20 minutes of relevant content. Russell Crowe and Ryan Simpkins deliver solid performances, but the film lacks a clear theme and emotional impact. Limited meaningful dialogue and a slow burn pacing result in a disappointing horror film that fails to scare. Not unwatchable, but unlikely to be revisited."
54 25% Cheech & Chong's Next Movie (1980) - Rated 19 Jun 2024
""Cheech and Chong's Next Movie" is a series of loosely connected scenes featuring the iconic duo. The plot is scattered, especially after introducing Red, and the ending is weak. Cheech and Chong deliver their usual humor, but the rest of the cast falls short. The dialogue is funny, but the pacing and production values are lacking. Despite minimal emotional impact, the film is highly rewatchable for its humor."
47 16% Mission: Impossible 2 (2000) - Rated 18 Jun 2024
""Mission Impossible 2" is a standard action film with a recycled virus/antidote plot and over-the-top action sequences. Tom Cruise, Thandiwe Newton, and Ving Rhames deliver solid performances, but the film's uneven pacing and lack of a clear theme make it less engaging. The mask plot device strains believability, and the emotional impact is limited. Rewatchable mainly for Thandiwe Newton."
49 18% American Pie Presents Band Camp (2005) - Rated 18 Jun 2024
""American Pie Presents: Band Camp" follows Matt Stifler at band camp, blending childish humor with minor plotlines about pranks, romance, and personal growth. Arielle Kebbel stands out, and Eugene Levy adds nostalgia. The dialogue is mostly flat, with low production value. The simple theme about seeing people for who they are and some emotional investment in Elyse's ambition provide minor entertainment. Occasionally rewatchable but not compelling."
81 73% Inside Out 2 (2024) - Rated 17 Jun 2024
""Inside Out 2" introduces new emotions during Riley’s adolescence, blending compelling internal and external plots. Strong voice acting, especially from Lewis Black and Amy Poehler, enhances the characters. Interior dialogue in Act 3 shines, and the film’s message about self-discovery is poignant. With solid pacing, creative production, and significant emotional impact, it’s a highly rewatchable sequel that offers depth and relatability."
80 69% National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007) - Rated 17 Jun 2024
""National Treasure: Book of Secrets" blends historical intrigue with modern action, continuing Ben Gates' thrilling adventures. Nicolas Cage and the cast deliver solid performances, with standout additions like Helen Mirren and Ed Harris. The plot is engaging, though some subplots feel unnecessary. Memorable dialogue and strong pacing enhance the experience, despite an underwhelming depiction of Cibola. Highly rewatchable and entertaining."
