"I love this movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger is great as a parody of himself, and the action is legitimately fun throughout."
|87 84%||Jingle All the Way (1996) - Jan 08, 2022
"Honestly, this is one of my favorite christmas movies ever. Arnold and Sinbad are hilarious throughout the movie, and Phil Hartman leads to some great laughs as well."
|77 68%||The Matrix Resurrections (2021) - Jan 04, 2022
"This was honestly... pretty disappointing. I hyped myself up by rewatching the trilogy, and I think the trilogy even ended with hope for a sequel in a way I didn't notice before, but this just doesn't do it. Some of the lore ideas presented here aren't bad. There's definitely some interesting stuff introduced into the world, but the actual plot of the story is weak, and even worse, the action is boring. Boring action, in a matrix movie? Not good. "
|85 81%||Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) - Dec 29, 2021
"I think this movie is good, although I do think it has been overhyped a bit, with people overlooking its issues due to the very satisfying fanservice the movie provides. The basis for the story is pretty weak, and a lot of the movie feels like it was thrown together at the last minute, rather than well thought out. I suspect COVID may be part of the reason why, but it's still an issue. That being said, there are a few things this movie does that really make up for its shortcomings."
|93 92%||The Matrix Revolutions (2003) - Dec 15, 2021
"I think this movie does a lot better with story than the second. Those looking for more in-matrix action would probably be disappointed compared to the others, but the series had been setting up this conflict in the real world as a major event, and I think it pays it off very well. The final fight scene in the Matrix is also exceptional, much better than the burly brawl. The ending also leaves hope for a sequel, and now it almost feels like that final scene could be a teaser."
|80 73%||The Matrix Reloaded (2003) - Dec 13, 2021
"Out of the original trilogy, this movie has the weakest story of them all, and probably the best action, so it's really difficult to judge this. Ultimately, while the action is entertaining, a lot of it leaves me wondering why exactly this stuff is happening. Overall there seem to be only a few small scenes that have any significant importance to the story. Some of the CGI (especially the Burly Brawl) doesn't hold up like it does with the other movies, as well. Still entertaining."
|99 99%||The Matrix (1999) - Dec 12, 2021
"It's the best in the series, and seriously rewatchable. "
|70 49%||Venom: Let There Be Carnage (2021) - Dec 11, 2021
"Significantly better than the first movie, but still flawed. The dynamic between Eddie and Venom was one of the only redeeming parts of the first movie, and I think they leaned into it a little too much at the start here. Beyond that, the movie is mostly fun, but the story is extremely rushed, and Carnage doesn't really get used in any interesting way. The movie really needed to be rated R, and longer. The ending was better than the first though, and the credit scene certainly is interesting."
|49 9%||Venom (2018) - Dec 10, 2021
"The only redeeming qualities here are the look of venom, the voice, and the interactions between Eddie and Venom. Pretty much everything else is crap. Even if we ignore the fact that the movie just completely misses the point of Venom, it's just not a good story. Not a good villain, not a good origin, the character motivations are weak, and the final conflict isn't even that good. Also, Michelle Williams' character was completely pointless. Could have just made Dan Eddie's doctor."
|78 70%||Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) - Dec 06, 2021
"I've watched this a few times now, and I think I've finally bumped the score up a bit from where I used to rate this, but not a huge amount. The main thing I like about this movie is Michael Keaton's performance. I think the development of Spider-man and his supporting cast is pretty weak, and actually feels more like a white Miles Morales than a Peter Parker story. I can still respect that they wanted to go for something different here, but I just think it doesn't do Peter justice."
