Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

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.

The Batman Review

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.

BattleBots S06 E07: Predictions

Sadly once again I did pretty bad last week at my predictions so also once again it’s time for me to redeem my self.

Bloodsport vs. Subzero

If Bloodsport can avoid Subzero long enough to spin up then I think they’ll win.

Cobalt vs. Ghost Raptor

This one I’m not sure with but for some reason I think Ghost Raptor will win.

Icewave vs. Deadlift

I think Icewave has the advantage in this fight so I’ll say they’ll win.

Blip vs. Overhaul

I feel like Blip will win this one.

Huge vs. Retrograde

This is another hard one, Huge has a better chance at damaging Retrograde but like Whiplash that one time Retrograde does have the chance at getting under Huge and stopping their weapon. But I’m still going to go with Huge on this one.

Copperhead vs. Fusion

Even though Fusion has been doing better this year I’m still going to go with Copperhead for this fight.

Whiplash vs. Skorpios

This is a hard one for me because I love hammer saws but between Whiplash and Skorpios I actually like Whiplash more so I’m going to root for them to win.

Switchback vs. Slammo!

This is a very weird fight so I’m not sure but I guess I’m feeling Switchback. I feel like their too much of a weird shape for Slammo to grab.

As always let’s hope I get at least 2 right because if I get less then that I’m a failure to the only sport I care to watch!

Death on the Nile Review

You know it’s pretty often when a trailer/ad claims the movie has a bunch of twists but it’s not often it being completely right! But Death on the Nile is one of those movies. Now I didn’t actually see the first movie but after seeing this one I’m probably going to watch it soon because I really really enjoyed watching this movie. This movie did indeed keep me guessing the whole time, which is fantastic for a murder mystery.

Besides the intriguing mystery I also loved Poirot and Bouc! They were my two favorite characters in this movie. Seeing the friendship between them and seeing their different sides made this movie whole. By that I mean it made the movie more then just a murder mystery it gave it a heart. I just enjoyed watching this movie a lot so I’m going to give it an 8 out of 10. It would have been a 10 out of 10 but I wasn’t able to guess the outcome.

Marry Me review

I thought this movie was really cute but I liked it for a completely different reason then most people probably did. That reason is the fact that it is based off an online graphic novel I read a long time ago! When I first saw the trailer for this movie I immediately suspected this was the comic that I read and so I looked it up and low and behold I was right. I got really excited seeing a comic I knew become a movie with a serious cast because it got me hopefully that other webcomics I’ve read might make it on the big screen to someday. But let’s get back to the movie.

If I’m being honest the movie was very different from the comic which most people probably won’t know that. Truthfully only the bare bones were the same but I surprisingly still liked it. It helped that it was a pretty unique story so the details of characters didn’t really matter that much to me. It kept the fun, heart, and even the silliness that I loved from the comic which is all that matters. All I know is that it is a great romantic comedy for Valentine’s day week and people will have fun watching it. So, I have to give it a 7 out of 10.

The King’s Man Review

I feel conflicted with The King’s Man because it was a great and emotional movie but it was honestly a let down as a Kingsman movie as a whole. By that I mean the fact that kind of lacked the absurdity the pervious movies had. Like heads exploding in a rainbow of colors or robot dogs that see Elton John as a friend, The King’s Man just didn’t have anything of that level of craziness. Sure it had a few moments, particularly any scene with Rasputin, but on the whole it had mostly normal stuff for a war/spy movie.

Now, if you try to not compare this movie to its predecessors then it’s a very good movie. Great action, great casting, and a story that made me cry. It was truly a great movie but sadly it is connected so I have a real hard time loving it as it. So, I don’t love it but I definitely strongly like it and give it a strong 6 out of 10.

Encanto Review

The 2 words I think of when I think of Encanto is cute and magical. It has almost everything needed for a new Disney princess movie. If Mirabel is even consider a Disney princess considering she is neither a princess, daughter of a chief, or a war hero. She also doesn’t have an animal side kick so that’s also is another problem, but besides that Mirabel is a great princess adjacent.

On the other hand my one of my favorite parts of this movie was the songs. I loved how they were so different from every other Disney movie, especially since some songs were almost rap like and I have a dream of a rapping Disney princess. So, baby steps. But the most important and best part of Encanto was of course Mirabel’s story. It basically boils down to the struggle of a young girl who wants to be seen in the same light has her more successful family members. And who just wants her family to be proud of her. Which I think is a story that many many people can relate too. The only thing I didn’t like was that even at the end she still doesn’t have a power which just seems unfair to me. So, all around I would give this movie a 7 out of 10.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Review

Now that the grace period for spoilers has passed I feel like I can give my review for the new Spider-Man, but I’m still going to try to not give specific details because I still don’t like spoilers for a movie this important. So, that being said this might be a short review.

Straight up this movie was perfect! I can’t think of any flaws, someone else might but I can’t. It has everything a multiverse Spider-Man movie needs and everything and more I could want. Particularly a certain cameo from an unexpected character(if you’ve seen it yet you know who I’m talking about) that I just love! Besides for that this movie had me experiencing all of the emotions, which I always think makes for a really good movie. Just the entire movie was an amazing edition to the MCU and a great experience to watch in theaters opening weekend. So, I confidently give this movie a 10 out of 10!

House of Gucci Review

I feel conflicted on House of Gucci, like the story was very entertaining and intriguing (if it’s accurate), but there was just too many problems that kept adding up for it to be a great movie. Before I get to the bad part I do want to say that I loved the casting and acting. I thought that all the actors and actresses did a very good job. The biggest problem was that it was long, and by long I mean really really long. For an action or even comedy movie the length wouldn’t have been a problem because you’d be engaged the whole time but in a biopic that allows for the viewers attention to wander a lot. Which led me to wonder multiple times “how long till this is over?” which is never a good sign. I also had a big problem with how they kept skipping ahead in time with very little explanation that it was further in the story. It would have been much better if they just put up more dates through out the movie so I would know for a fact that time progressed. Besides for these two problems it was a relatively okay movie, so I would give it a solid 5 out of 10. Basically it was good to watch one time but I definitely wouldn’t go see it again.
