Quick reviews of movies I saw in 2017-2018.

K-on @ the movies

Before this infinite summer of movies begin I wanted to express my views on the movies that have already come to past. I have been promising to give my opinions and have not gotten around to it so here they are. In an effort to make this not-TLTR, I am just gonna focus on what I thought was really good or really bad about whichever movie.

So first off I have already given my opinions about “Cars 3”, “Transformers: The Last Knight” and “Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi”, so there is no point in doing so again, but well I loved “The Last Knight”, “Cars 3” was not too bad and “The Last Jedi”……..well was not as bad as one particular movie I will be bringing up later. One question though…….Rey and Kylo Ren are NOT related right?? There was a post on Facebook where the person thinks that the “theories” of a “romance” between them was “icky” because they are cousins, but I thought that was debunked in the film……am I wrong?
Anyways first off is Marvel……
I already gave an opinion of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, awesome movie except for an annoying effect during a certain scene, and now I understand (after watching this one YouTube video) why it made sense to have Ego as Quill’s father instead of J’son.
“Black Panther” was a really great film, love the visuals and the acting. Maybe not my favorite of the MCU movies, but I did love it. But is it sad that my favorite character in the movie was Everett K. Ross……..what does that say about me. 😅
“Thor: Ragnarok”…………………………LOVE IT……best Thor movie, best movie with the Hulk….could be my favorite MCU movie…….I love this movie.
And then there was “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.
For the most part I really loved the movie, even with the “changes” made to the cast of characters.
Michael Keaton was brilliant as Adrian Toomes aka Vulture, and I really didn’t see him as your typical villain. Tom Holland was a perfect Peter Parker and a great…………..Iron Man Jr😏………….yeah that is my issue with the movie.
The movie made it seem like anyone could be Spider-Man (basically that was the tag line for the toy ads), all you had to do is wear this specially made suit created by Tony Stark. The movie never shows us why Tony entrusted the Spider Suit to Peter in the first place. Okay I get it no one wants to see the origin story again, but how about showing us how Stark first learned about this kid in the first place. Like why not just give the suit to someone like Daredevil or Iron Fist, why was Peter chosen by Stark…….yes we can “guess” why, but it is never implied in the actual film.
And like I said he is just a kid in this “Iron Man” suit for most of the film, note it is not like he made it himself, which is what in my opinion makes Spider-Man Spider-Man, and not Iron Man Jr.
So beside “Pokemon The Movie I Chose You” (which is loved…..duh, and already spoke about how much I did), that covers all the movies I saw on the big screen, so lets talk about ones I saw either though Redbox, Netflix or Cable.
Sad fact is that the “Death Note” live action movie was not as bad as I thought it was gonna be…..sure it was not great but it was enjoyable and not a complete BORE and WASTE of time as……………………………………………………………………………..wait for it……………………………………………………..I know you all are gonna disagree with me……………………………………………………..
“WONDER WOMAN” đŸ€ź
Yes that is right I am saying that the live action version of the anime/manga “Death Note” was far more enjoyable than the OVERRATED movie about a wonder woman.
Believe it or not even though I could not stand Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, and it was a movie starring Ben Affleck, I didn’t hate “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”. So after hearing reviews/opinions I had high hopes for “Wonder Woman”. I thought Gal Gadot was pretty good in the role, so what could go wrong……well the movie did.
Watching “Wonder Woman” felt like walking though mud during a rainstorm. The movie just dragged on and on….and mind you I was at home watching it.
One annoying factor was the accent all the Amazonian women had, I suppose they wanted all the women to sound similar to Diana, but it didn’t work for me.
And this whole “WOMEN POWER” movement surrounding the movie. First off she was NOT the first female superhero to have her own movie. Ever heard of “Supergirl” from 1984, nor was this the first time a female was the lead and saved the day….what about Ellen Ripley…which did not rely on “super powers”. So “feminists” what is the big deal with “this” movie. 🙄
Plus and I hate saying it like this, but there was a “Sailor Moon/Tuxedo Mask” vibe with this movie…….meaning even though she did all the work, she still “needed” validation from Steve Trevor that she did a “good job” and nice little “pat on the head” from the man……that is how I saw it……and how is that really empowering for females…….just saying. 😕
Okay let me end this before it gets to long……I also finally got to see “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” recently…….and I………..absolutely……….LOVED IT!!!!!…….duh Karen Gillan 😍was in it, of course I did.
I thought is was more fun and enjoyable over the first movie (which is still great but not as great as the animated series), and I really wish we would have seen this on the big screen instead of what we did see…which was “The Last Jedi”.
