Even though the internet has already let the cats out of the bag I’m still going to attempt to review this without spoilers (mostly to challenge myself). First things first this movie was crazy! It was an insane and brutal rollercoaster ride of a movie that I enjoyed every second of.
The main thing I enjoyed, which many have already mentioned, is that this movie is another example of how this Phase is becoming darker/more mature. This change can not only be seen in the more violent fights but also in the darker themes of trauma, abuse, and of course loss throughout the MCU. It feels cliché to say but I just really love how this Phase is getting darker since it almost feels like the MCU has been growing up alongside me.
On a less serious note, I also can’t get enough of how they do the different types of magic. They always look so cool(especially all the different colors for all the spells) and I can’t wait to see even more magic in the rest of Phase 4. All in all, I give this movie a 9 out of 10.
Even though I saw this movie opening weekend it took me this long to write a review because I have a pretty big bias when it comes to anything dealing with the Wizarding World. And that bias is *drumroll* You guessed it! Complete and utter love! So, I wanted to give my opinions sometime to stew to see if they changed. But wouldn’t you know they haven’t.
Honestly I just love every little addition to the Wizarding World so I have an extremely hard time seeing anything wrong with them. I just enjoy learning as much as I can about the magically world. I especially love how these movies are letting us see the actual “World” and not just Britain. But what I love even more than the world building is my dearest Newt, I love him with all my heart. I don’t know what it says about me but I just adore my socially awkward animal lover. Without Newt I would have still been a reluctantly proud Hufflepuff instead of a loud and proud Hufflepuff I am! But really I truly enjoy how these movies are telling an important story (that we vaguely heard about in the HP movies) mainly from the point of view of someone who you would have thought of as unimportant.
I only have one complaint and that is that I wish that we got to meet just one more new magical creature. That would have been the icing on the cake, at least I got more of Teddy(my second favorite love of FB). So, I would rate this an 8 out of 10. I will also say it was better then the 2nd movie but not as great as the 1st one.
This is another one of those movies that I don’t have too much to say about it. That’s because it’s one of those movies that is fun to watch but once you leave the theater you don’t really think about it the rest of the day. On one hand Sonic is one of those kid movies that is actually enjoyable for adults to watch but on the other hand it was very similar to the first one. So, I wasn’t left left awed and thought it was an average movie.
There is one thing that does awe me about the Sonic movies is the fact that it got a second movie and what appears to be plans for a third all because the makers of the movie listened to the internet. I 100% believe that if the makers didn’t listen to all the shit they were getting about the original animation style of what Sonic was going to look like then the movie would have tanked. But since they did end up reanimating Sonic it’s only natural that it became a big success. That’s really the one reason I’m pretty impressed with the Sonic movies.
But back on topic I would give the movie a 6 out of 10. Worth it to see once in theaters.
First things first this movie did not deserve the amount of hate it’s getting. Was it perfect? No. But it wasn’t horrible either. I thought it was perfectly fine. I do wish it was so much better then it was because I was super hyped for Morbius, but not every movie can be amazing sadly.
For me there was really only one huge flaw and that was that it was super fast. Like someone I know described it as it seemed like it was playing at 1.5 speed. Which makes complete sense. It moved so quickly from one scene to the next that it left almost no time for character/plot development. It feels like they just wanted to get Morbius’s origin story over quickly so they could move straight into the meet up movies. Which I don’t necessarily fault them for wanting to do if it’s true.
But besides the quickness I didn’t really mind the rest of it. That might also be because I love vampire stuff so I was just really happy to have a superhero vampire mashup movie. That is probably why I’m trying to be optimistic about possible future team ups with Venom. All in all I’d give Morbius a 6 out of 10. Not great but average.
It’s no surprise to me that this movie was undeniably funny, I mean what would you expect from a comedy staring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum they’re amazing. Plus what’s better then Daniel Radcliffe as a villain? Nothing that’s what. Since it’s probably no surprise to anyone else that this is a good movie I’m just going to quickly talk about what I think set this movie apart from other rom-coms.
And that is what I’d like to call the perfect ratio between funny and serious. There wasn’t too many serious parts so it kept its rom-com feel but there also wasn’t so few scenes that it felt wrong to have them in the first place. I was also surprised by the combination of cliché and unpredictable. Like, I simultaneously knew and not knew what was going to happened. Which weirdly made the movie even more fun to watch. So, with this balance I would give The Lost City a 7 out 10.
This was my favorite DC movie to date and now I’m trying to decide if I like Pattinson more then Bale but I think, give him another movie and maybe a few more gadgets and Pattinson will me my new favorite. I actually really really enjoyed the dark, depressed, and basically emo Bruce. I just feel like it makes more sense to me to have the brooding Bruce instead of the playboy Bruce.
Another surprising thing to me was that I actually noticed and was really into the cinematography and music. Normally I don’t really pay attention to stuff like that, I usually pay more attention to the plot and movie as the whole then the different parts. So, the fact that this movies music and filming were special and different enough for me to not only notice but love it is amazing in my mind.
There was only one thing I wish there was more of and that was BRUCE WITH EYE MAKEUP!! I literally have no idea why but I loved seeing Bruce in his street clothes with the black eye makeup and I wish there was more of it. Even if it pushed it over the 3 hour mark. But all in all I would give it a 9 out of 10 and I can’t wait for another one.
Well I failed once again to get an 8 out of 8 prediction correct so this is my last time before the round of 32. Wish me luck.
Bloodsport vs. Claw Viper
I think Bloodsport will win this as long as they get their spinner going. I also can’t really see how Claw Viper can flip Bloodsport easily.
Madcatter vs. Rampage
100% Madcatter will win. And if for some reason they don’t then its bullshit.
Huge vs. Switchback
As always there has to be a fight that I can’t decide on. I can see Switchback being able to hit Huge but they don’t really have a good record this season so I have to ultimately say Huge will win.
Kraken vs. Glitch
Well as we’ve seen Glitch might be the new King of the low ground and I can’t really see how Kraken can do any damage to Glitch without damaging themselves so I think Glitch has the better chance of winning. But I really like Kraken so I’m still going to root for them to win.
Mammoth vs. Lucky
I think Mammoth will win this. I just don’t see how Lucky can flip Mammoth.
Rusty vs. Witch Doctor
Rusty’s great but I can’t see them beating Witch Doctor.
Fusion vs. Icewave
I know Fusion has been doing much better this season but I don’t think it’s fanciness can beat the simplicity of Icewaves weapon.
Blade vs. Dragon Slayer
Considering Blades record this season I have to say Dragon Slayer will win. But I do really want to see something impressive from Blade since it looks really cool.
Now let’s see what happens this time!
Dog was a really cute movie but more then that I feel like it was a really balanced movie. And by that I mean it wasn’t all sad or all happy. For every moment you laughed, you cried and vice versa.
That’s what made Dog unique for a dog movie. Normally you go into a movie about a dog expecting it to be all funny or ultimately sad by the end, but Dog wasn’t like that. My emotions went up and down during the entirety of the the movie which ultimately left me at a content emotional middle ground slightly leaning towards happy. If you know what I mean. Which is pretty good by my standards, but only if it’s for a movie about a dog. Ultimately if I was left feeling how I did after watching Dog for any other type of movie I wouldn’t have been impressed.
I also feel compelled to add that according to my dad the details they had about the Rangers were pretty accurate and as anyone can agree accuracy in a realistic movie is very important. So, all in all I would give Dog a 6 out of 10. An excellent dog movie but an average movie in general.
Last week I was more disappointed in the actual fights then my failures at prediction so hopefully it goes better this week.
Gruff vs. Cobalt
Cobalt is strong but I think Gruffs durability will win this one.
Duck! vs. Riptide
I’m not too confident in Riptide but Duck really disappointed me last time I rooted for them so this time I’m going to say Riptide.
Valkyrie vs. Pardon My French
We haven’t seen too much of what Pardon is capable of this season so I’m going to go with the safe bet and say Valkyrie will win.
Lock-Jaw vs. Blip
I’m not sure about this one but I’m feeling that Blip might be able to win this one if they can fling Lock-Jaw a couple of times.
Minotaur vs. Deep Six
Since I really enjoy Deep Six and really want to see a redemption for their last fight I’m going with them. Plus I’m not quite sure how much damage Minotaur can do to Deep Six.
Subzero vs. Hijinx
I think Hijinx will win this one.
Skorpios vs. Yeti
This is one of those fights where I can see either one winning so I’m going to root for the one I like more. Which is of course is the glorious hammer saw!(I love hammer saw bots)
Defender vs. Retrograde
I think Retrogrades low ground will allow them to have the control in the fight and thus the win.
As always lets hope I get that allusive 8 out of 8 correct.
