Mile 22 review

Posted : 1 year, 6 months ago on 18 August 2018 10:12 (A review of Mile 22)

Action packed spy-thriller almost exclusively focusing on a single event: the extraction of a foreign agent along a route that is 22 miles long. For this type of movie, story was decent and interesting enough and the right amount of focus was placed on elements outside of the main event.

For a short while, I thought I maybe sat too close, and it was hard to really see what was going on. Then, I realized, this was about the spot I always sat and it was just filmed way too close with odd choices. There was so much jumping from camera to camera, even in scenes that really didn't warrant it, that is distracted from the movie. These two elements combined with purposefully shaky cam made for a pretty weak experience. Why bother putting in action if no one can see what is going on?

Still, I enjoyed it well enough for what it was. 6/10

The Meg review

Posted : 1 year, 6 months ago on 17 August 2018 11:26 (A review of The Meg)

Not terrible, but a bit too slow. Too much character development and build up made it kinda boring, and the scenes with the shark were just OK.

For a giant shark with a beach filled with people, it was a surprisingly low eat count, lessening the terror. It didn't help that they tossed in two tired tropes, a dog and a kid, where they try to get you to bond with them in the 10 seconds you see them so you care about them when they are in peril. Spoiler: you don't care.

Also, there is a scene at the climatic end with helicopters that was so ridiculous that it was laughable. Spoiler, no, it had nothing to do with the shark (which is sad.)

That said, there were a number of parts that were (intentionally) funny. But, for the most part, I got to the point where I was waiting for it to end. 6/10

Pacific Rim: Uprising review

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 23 March 2018 01:39 (A review of Pacific Rim: Uprising)

The previews for the original Pacific Rim made it look dull to me, and when I ended up finally watching it, I did find it to be dull. However, the previews for Pacific Rim: Uprising made it look like it could be a fun, exciting movie, so I figured it might be decent. But, no, it was dull, like the first one.

The most frustrating part of this to me is that these robots, the Jaegers, have been determined to be the best defense against the monsters, yet they are absolutely terrible in every battle with them. They excel at taking a beating and knocking down all the buildings in a city, but the fighting part is so one sided it is laughable. At least give us some battles where the Jaeger are actually as effective as they are claimed to be, so we can see them kicking butt and be able to root for them. 6/10

Tomb Raider review

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 16 March 2018 01:38 (A review of Tomb Raider)

OK origin story type movie. I wanted Lara to be a stronger character, though, as it felt that she was relying on others way more than I'd expect. Exciting start, but a lot of pointless buildup before we finally get to the real meat of the movie. I found myself checking my watch several times, which is a sign that the movie could have been shorter. Not terrible, but I don't think I need to see this one again. 6/10

A Wrinkle in Time review

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 9 March 2018 03:00 (A review of A Wrinkle in Time)

This was probably the best translation from the book that can be expected. The book was trippy, with a little bit of science and a whole lot of magic, and this movie followed suit. Impressive visuals helped counter the rushed pace and confusing story. If you haven't read the book, I would not recommend seeing this movie, since it felt like it was a companion to the book, relying on the audience to understand things that were unexplained. Parts were a bit cringey, but it was an overall enjoyable experience. 7/10

Annihilation review

Posted : 2 years ago on 26 February 2018 12:03 (A review of Annihilation)

A great sci-fi story that doesn't spell everything out. It has a gentle horror feeling throughout, where the antagonist isn't a villain, or even thinking being, perhaps. In fact, no malicious intent, just matter-of-fact is fresh. Weird and enjoyable, I will probably want to go see this one again. 8/10

Winchester review

Posted : 2 years ago on 18 February 2018 04:03 (A review of Winchester)

A problem I have with a lot of horror movies is inconsistency of their idea, or explanations that don't really make sense with the rest of the story. Winchester, however, did a great job at remaining consistent with their story.

It relied on a number of jump scares, which were well done. The story was interesting and bizarre and was at least partially based on real people. Not terribly scary, but a good deal of suspenseful horror. 7/10

The Shape of Water review

Posted : 2 years ago on 4 February 2018 11:48 (A review of The Shape of Water)

A fun fairy tale. Only big issue I had with it was her quickness to embrace the monster for apparently no reason when first learning of it after it attacked someone. Also, this could have been a PG or PG-13 film with some editing and it might have fit better with younger kids who might not care that she'd have no motivation to become friends with the monster. Anyhow, worth it. 7/10

Maze Runner: The Death Cure review

Posted : 2 years ago on 3 February 2018 10:48 (A review of Maze Runner: The Death Cure)

A mediocre end to a mediocre series. There was such a long pause between this movie and the second that I didn't recall all of the characters, but it seemed that most were extra, anyways. Nonsensical decisions by the characters and a confusing disease I didn't remember much about, other than it kinda made zombies. Everyone got burnt out on apocalypse movies when this series put out the second, so I understand the delay, but it hurt the story as the previous movie wasn't really good enough to bother watching a second time.

On another note, this series missed out on an opportunity to make the two sides of this both be good guys, but with different views of what that means. Instead, the antagonists are clearly bad, but the movie only tries to pretend otherwise at a couple of points. So, Teresa being lured to them wasn't convincing.

That said, it had a strong start and the action was decent. However, I ended up being bored at different points. If you've seen the first two, you might as well, but if you've not, I wouldn't bother getting caught up on them to see this. 6/10

Darkest Hour review

Posted : 2 years, 1 month ago on 10 January 2018 05:04 (A review of Darkest Hour)

An interesting tale of Churchill becoming Prime Minister and his securing of his position within the first month. It was difficult to understand Churchill at a number of points, which I get that he talked like that, but it makes it difficult to understand what is going on. Also, the movie wanders at points, focusing on characters that don't really have a role in the movie, like his assistant. Also, too much focus is put on times when nothing is happening, and not enough on significant things, like when people are changing their mind about things for unknown reasons.

Still, it was worth a watch for the history. The tone was great, and the speeches powerful and well done. 6/10

High School Musical
2019-11-09 @Home on Disney Channel w/ Katy Hadn't seen it before, but we had just watched the preview of "High School Musical the Musical the Series" which was amusing, so we watched together. Good enough, if a bit predictable. Watched the 2nd immediately after and only give that a 6/10.

The Kitchen
2019-08-10 @AMC Portage 10 Theater 10, seat C7 via A-List It could have been good, but the pacing was much too fast. Either they needed to expand the movie length, or cut out a lot of side-story elements.

2019-03-17 @AMC Portage 10 Theater 10, seat E7 via A-List Aliens take over, but the resistance fights. OK enough, but questions about how they are strong enough to fight now, but the governments couldn't fight them before makes it hard to swallow.
