I’m starting this review off by saying like most of the biopics I’ve seen I don’t actually know much about these people lives so I can only tell you if it was a good movie to watch and not if it was accurate.
Now that we gotten that out of the way I think King Richard was an interesting movie. If it was at all true then it was actually kind of inspiring the determination and belief all the Williams’s had in what they would become. It was really interesting seeing how 2 of the very few athletes I actually know the names of got where they were today. But beside that this movie made me both laugh and cry, which is always a good sign for a movie in my opinion. Truthfully I don’t have much more to say about the movie, all I can say it was a good movie to watch that I would give it a solid 6 out of 10.
Now that it’s been enough time for the spoiler free grace period to be over I can give my honest review without worrying about spoiling it for others. All in all I would rate this as an upper mid tier MCU movie. It was a great movie but there was really just one big flaw that kept me from loving it a lot.
First, lets talk about the best part of the movie. That is the characters. I loved how all the characters were their own unique person. I especially loved how each one had their own special power, which in turn made it hard for me to decide who was my favorite! I just really enjoyed watching this little family interact and all their individual views and ideas.
This love for the characters also leads to my biggest problem I had with the movie. As a lot of you could guess yes it’s the death of some of the characters. I will admit I’m a sucker for a “happy” ending where everyone lives but that’s only a small part of why I didn’t liked that the characters died. One part is that you barely got to see the what those characters could do. But that all pales in comparison to the disappointment I had in the death of Ikaris. I thought them having Ikaris kill himself at the end was a cheap way of ending his story. They should have had him stay alive and make up for what he did and try to give him a tough redemption arc. But it wasn’t just him quite a few of the characters got shitty endings that felt like they ruined great potential for new heros. So, because of this I would only give Eternals a 6.5 out of 10.
Cute and entertaining, that’s how I would describe this movie. But more specifically it was also entertaining for adults too which I think is the sign of a good kids movie. Because if you can keep both kids and adults amused at the same time then clearly you’re doing something right.
Truthfully there’s not much more to say without spoiling the movie. Except for the fact that at the beginning of the movie I got a very strong The Mitchells vs. the Machines vibe from it so I kept having to remind myself for the first 10 minutes that this wasn’t that type of AI/robot movie. Which is another thing I noticed after watching this movie that I really enjoyed. I noticed that for the most part this movie was up beat on the topic of AIs. Most media goes in the direction of “AI’s will hate humans and take over the world” but this movie chose the unbelievable direction of “maybe AI’s will just want to be our friend”. That was really enjoyable and refreshing to me. But while I enjoyed watching the movie I do have to admit it wasn’t amazing it was just good. So I give this movie a 6 out of 10.
