Uncharted Review

I’m going to start this off by saying I haven’t played a single Uncharted game so I like to believe I have an unbiased opinion of the movie. And that opinion is that Uncharted is fun! It’s really that simple.

I could on and on about how I love treasure hunting and parkour movies separately so putting them together is even better, but why do that when I can just simple say that Uncharted was really enjoyable to watch. I (unlike some people) really liked the casting and thought Mark and Tom were great together. It was fun watching the start of this treasure hunting duo’s relationship. What really got me with this movie was the potential it has. Now, even though I loved watching Uncharted I will admit it could have been “deeper” I guess. I would have liked to see more emotional scenes both good and bad. But with the end credits it makes me hopeful that we’ll get to see Nate and Sully grow and evolve. I just really hope this movie at least gets one sequel so I can see more of it. All in all I would give Uncharted a 7.5 out of 10. It was a fun time watching it in theaters but could have had a little more to make it great.

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.

Clifford the Big Red Dog Review

I was honestly surprised by Clifford. I did not go into the theater with high hopes but luckily I was pleasantly surprised. Now it was by no means a great movie but it was definitely cute and fun. I was actually a pretty good adaptation of the original which I was not expecting at all. There were only 2ish things that kept the movie from being better then it could have been.

The first one and actually it was pretty minor problem was how they animated tiny Clifford. Clifford big was perfectly fine, he looked like a normal dog (except for the red and big part obviously). But tiny Clifford was all wrong, the best way to describe him was that they took the proportions of an adult dog shrunk it down and then shrunk his head down even more. Because his head was way to small for his body and it looked all wrong. Which thankfully was only a problem at the beginning.

Strangely enough the biggest problem for me was Jack Whitehall having an American accent? It wouldn’t have been a problem but they gave Emily Elizabeth’s mom (his characters sister) a British accent. Sure they gave a very quick explanation as to why he didn’t have an accent but it was never mentioned again ever which just confused me even more. I just kept getting pulled out of the movie because I kept thinking about what could have been the reason to get rid of his real accent. I know that that is a very minor thing which no kid would question, which is the important thing since this is a kids movie. But for me it just was an unnecessary thing to do.

Now if you ignore these minor details it was a cute movie to watch so I’d give it a 6 out of 10.

King Richard Review

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.

Eternals Review

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.
