Now there's a Shape of Water Vibrator........
That's really not what I got out of it, that's what critics who raved about it got out of it. Apparently, they think just being a metaphor for something makes it great. It doesn't.
The characters were bland, the shimmer was bland, the story bland, and the ending was cliched. The movie was cold and lifeless.
I would say it looked good, but it really didn't at my showing (I think something was up with the projector as it was very washed out).
I don't hate many movies (and didn't hate this one), but find most are in the mediocre range.
It's funny, I used to be criticized here for liking Paul Blart (I didn't) and now I am told I hate everything (I don't).
Finally got around to seeing Black Panther. I give it an 8 out of 10. Michael B. Jordan is, in my opinion, one of the best, most complex villains yet seen in a Marvel film. And this film was special. Well deserving of the $1 billion it will soon make.
Saw it today. It fits right below Deadpool, the first Avengers, and Logan for me.
I like Deadpool and liked Logan, but I put Black Panther above both. Deadpool was mindless fun but forgettable, and Logan had weight and great farewell performances from Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman, but it was closing the book with nothing more to look forward to. That was a bummer for me so it negatively affects my own ranking.
And that first Avengers was the benchmark for me. It would be hard for any of these films to match that one.
So are the three you mentioned your top 3 favorites?
Yes. I loved Deadpool because it went there. All of the Marvel movies inject humor, but Deadpool was a superhero comedy. It is to Marvel what Shaun of the Dead was to horror.
Spiderman should've been more like that too, though Homecoming was much closer than the others.
What I didn't get about Logan was that it never really explained what happened from Futures Past to that point, because Futures Past put everything on reset
Very true. If that's your style of humor, Deadpool certainly gives you what you want. It took years of fighting, but they finally let someone do the character justice.
Those guys just didn't care. Jackman and the director just wanted to do their own thing.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle. 9/10
It has everything you want in a light, fun adventure movie. Great chemistry between the cast. Karen Gillian is going to be big time soon
A Wrinkle in Time - Poor Oprah (and I'm no fan of hers)/10.
The Strangers: Prey at Night - Millennials...smh/10
Both absolutely terrible films. At least the latter is short. Just nothing really good to say about either. I am critical of a lot of movies, but that I think most are just mediocre or just don't grab me. These two, however, I hated. Just garbage.
I'll spare you the finer points,and give you the Cliff note version. Mostly dog crap,and nothing memorable. Most disappointing would be the new Cloverfield flick.
Death Wish - 8 / 10
Bruce Willis playing a vigilante killing scum bags, what's not to like about it.
Always a classic....
Annihilation - 8/10
Sci Fi in the purest sense. Leaves you with far more questions than answers. It’s a slow-burner but I’d recommend it.
Just finished watching this. Liked it. It's different,but in a good way. Takes awhile for the story to start making sense,but it pulls your focus in and makes for some worthy adult viewing.
Tomb Raider - No time for love, Dr. Jones/10
This movie is not great by any means. However, it has a lot of positives and makes for a solid action ride. It is easily the best video game film to date. What it doesn't take directly from the game, it borrows from Indiana Jones. Vikander is good, and the film is a lot less cheesy than the trailers make it look. Not great, but solid and entertaining.
