I'm usually pretty easy on Sci-Fi movies... just because I love visions of the future.

 

Also, I didn't see the trailer before watching the movie. So, maybe I graded it higher because of that.

 

I would have liked to see more of their relationship over the years.

Light between Oceans 6/10

 

Meh. Weak characters and fairly contrived plot. The attempt to redeem the plot by adding 11th hour moral 'twist' did not work. Fassbender was wooden. I know he was supposed to be a recovering war vet, but he played the character without emotion. My partner and I had high hopes for this film. Lacking any sort of empathy for the main characters we struggled to finish it. Jack Thompson playing the salty, wise old Captain was the most enjoyable character.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 was pretty good.

Not as much raw action as Vol.1 but more character development and still plenty of action.

All the cameos were lovely and seeing Jeff Goldblum dancing :D And John Crichton in gold body paint :D

Spider-Man: Homecoming was pretty good.

Tom Holland did well, Keaton is a great Vulture... what else to say without spoiling anything...

Spoiler

Karen was lovely and MJ is different from previous films...

The third suit looked dope af. Kill mode =O

I liked it more than Wonder Woman :|

Blade Runner 2049  8.5/10


The director was pretty brave to take on a sequel to such an iconic movie. His vision of the future is even more bleak than in the original movie and very well executed--the sequel is pretty good. Maybe not quite as good as the original which I rated 10/10. But, It is filmed in the same style and pace. The sets are amazing and the music compliments the scenes well. The special effects were amazing. Plus, there's a pretty good twist.

 

And, now for the negatives...

 

At 2h 45m, the movie was too long.  Once this is out on DVD, I'd like to see a fan edit this down to 2h even.

 

The original was an action movie, this is more of a mystery movie.  This is going to put some people off.

 

Mild spoiler:

Spoiler

The ending of the movie was not as satisfying as the original because in this movie they didn't deal with the big bad. I'm assuming they left this open for a sequel.  But, I can't believe they thought a sequel to this movie would be possible.  I mean, seriously, only true fans of the original movie are going to like this one.  It is simply too slow for the general movie going public to be entertained by this.

 

A nit: in this movie, umbrellas didn't have illuminated shafts like they did in the original.

The Foreigner  7/10

 

This is basically Jackie Chan's version of Taken. He stretched his acting muscles a bit--not just punching and kicking. He does a good job. 

 

Pierce Brosnan also did a great job as the British government official he goes to to find out the names of the bad guys that killed his daughter.

The Last Jedi was epic, maybe even more so than The Force Awakens.

There was even a moment where I almost teared up. Looked beautiful.

Avengers: Infinity War was rather different when compared to previous Marvel movies....

Hard to describe and I can't even begin to imagine how Part 2 will play out...

Deadpool 2 has the grace and elegance of Deadpool 1 without the burden of an origin story.

Be prepared for the usual meta jokes and silly antics with a dash of plot twists that you would never imagine happening in a movie.

And keep your eye open all the time for some really out of the blue cameos during the movie and during credits.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is as worthy of its title as Rogue One.

Grand adventure, surprising cameos that will blow your mind. I did not see that one coming.

Spoiler

Han Shot First ?

Totally disagree. Rogue One was great, Solo not so much. 

 

I would rate it 6/10 and I'm being generous.

 

BTW, the public seems to agree with me... second weekend ticket sales dropped off a cliff.  It will be lucky to make it's cost back.

Ant-Man and the Wasp was pretty good.

Wholesome and fun movie, no real ooh moments but enjoyable throughout.

The end credits, not the credits scene, but the credits itself, were really well made most like 3D printed scale models of key scenes. Really nice looking.

Credits scene was nice too.

Watched 'A Quiet  Place' last night with John Krasinski and Emily Blunt.

I was totally scared!  One of the best horror films I've seen in awhile.

Would def recommend it.

CinemaSins may find this trail interesting.

 

No doubt.

 

But, I loved it.

 

Unlike them, I can be entertained by a less than perfect movie.

I'll have to check it out .

 

Just watched The Ghost of The Charnel House ... would give it 7/10 - hardly any  jump out of your skin moments.  But good storyline well acted

Last week it was Annabel - Creation.  Very disappointed. 4/10

 

I want to watch the latest IT ... but the missus draws the line at that, because of Pennywise.  Sort of the whole point.

Currently watching Castle Rock on Hulu.  It's an extremely S-L-O-W start and I hope things will pick up.

 

I do love all the Stephen King Easter Eggs in it and Bill Skarsgard (Pennywise) is playing a totally creepy kid, who's been locked up in the basement of Shawshank prison for years and hasn't aged a day..... ?

Last night, I may have watched one of the worst films I've ever seen.

 

Future World (2018) starring James Franco  0/10

 

Yup. Zero.

 

It is some sort of Mad Max / Cherry 2000 mashup.  Only, it takes the worst of everything.

 

Now, I can appreciate a bad movie that was made bad on purpose (think, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes)... but, this was just plain bad.

 

I want my money back AND I want my time back. :mad: 

 

Learn from my mistake and skip this one.

Ant-Man and the Wasp 7/10

 

I'm not a big comic book movie fan, but It was funny.  Evangeline Lilly... 😍

 

Venom 6/10

 

Wow. First half of the movie was boring as ****.  Second half was just OK.
