"Surprisingly okay. Would rather watch this again than yet another superhero movie. Highlights: Kristen Wiig as an evil albino, Yoyo, Richard Cheese, Jamie Dornan's seagull song ..."

"The third act wasn't believable."

"It's quite compelling but too unfocused, sometimes too silly, sometimes veering into intentional AND unintentional camp. I enjoyed it but I'm not sure I would recommend it to anyone. I wish it had had the guts to stick to what should have been the real ending but, obviously, the gutsy option didn't test well."

"Good for what it is, a middling psychological thriller."
|12 55%||Californication (2007) - Feb 08, 2021
"It's actually good, but it just goes on and on and all blurs together eventually. Had this had a definite beginning and end, instead of dragging on until it was cancelled, you can tell it would have been amazing. I'd like to revisit it eventually but I worry about reaching that part of the story again where I start to feel disdain for everyone involved for milking it."

"I was hoping the generous runtime of a television miniseries might finally allow the Marvel cinematic universe to explore the characters and their relationship dynamics but unfortunately it's just more empty spectacle. What a sad waste of the rich comic book material! It's almost like it's a real show with stakes and stuff, but it never commits, so it doesn't ever quite become something I can respect. (I can't deny it's nice to see some mutant-ness creeping into Disney's Marvel, though.)"
|15 90%||Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) - Dec 28, 2020
"It falls apart in the last 20 minutes but I enjoyed pretty much every moment before that. Bad: Gal Gadot can't act, and the pacing is sometimes too abrupt. Good: the story's touching and the three supes are each fleshed out and sympathetic. The admittedly scant action is mostly well-choreographed and -shot and motivated. But the movie doesn't stick its landing, going from comic-book hokey (acceptable) to outright schmaltzy (not), which undermines the grandeur and gravitas it had cultivated."

"I think Christopher Nolan finally bit off more than he could chew. There was clearly far too much story to fit into one movie, the editing needed to be clearer, and it wouldn't have hurt to give the audience a reason to care about the protagonist and understand his motivations. The soundtrack was good, and I liked the Russian armsdealer."
