I've seen this several times now. It's a beer and popcorn movie for me. (translates to not amazing, but just enjoy it for what it is) A highlight is the Phil Collen/Steve Clarke relationship. How many feet it has in fact though I cant comment on.
4 women are forced to run a bank job to pay off a debt once their bank robber husbands are killed.
None of them have ever done anything remotely like this before and they’re scared shitless.
It’s really good.
And you’d think people would know by now #SuicideSquad to NEVER f*ck with Amanda Wallace...
This vid pretty much nails where Snyder went wrong...
On a positive note, and as someone who still hasn’t recovered from Snyder ruining both The Dark Knight Returns and The Death Of Superman, I really enjoyed Wonder Woman* so I’m keeping my fingers crossed DC are now on an uphill direction with their movies...
Aquaman is fun. Good ... eh, not so much. But fun. It's enjoyable in the ways it needs to be for you to walk out of the movie feeling like you had a good time. Objectively there are issues. But still, fun.
I really, really enjoyed the movie. It's far from perfect and the final act has some issues, but overall it's a lot of fun. I'm a huge fan of the comics and felt the movie was pretty true to the spirit of Mignola's work. There were some changes to the source material (of course), and some of those were strange, but again, overall they were good.
A fun superhero movie with some genuinely GORGEOUS visual moments and way more character depth (see what I...?) than I was ever expecting.
Also, whoever decided to cast Julie Andrews - Julie fhhking ANDREWS - as the voice of the gargantuan sea monster thing deserves to be showered with money.
I mean, Maria (Sound Of Music), Mary Poppins...*skips forward 55 years*...MASSIVEMO INDESTRUCTIBLE SEA MONSTER OF DEATH?
I've softened a bit on my criticisms of Shape of Water.
We watched Unicorn Store last night, another fable that was directed by Brie Larson. She plays an aspiring dreamer with a penchant for glitter who also wants to be an artist. But she is flunked out of art school and has to move home at 30 with her overly-saccharine and enabling, but loving parents, played by Joan Cusack and Bradley Whitford.
She becomes a temp at a PR firm. While there, after missing at least one and ignoring another, she finally responds to a mysterious, personalized invitation to The Store, where she meets The Salesman, played by Sam Jackson. He offers to fulfill her lifetime dream of owning a unicorn. Well, not so much owning one, as they're strong, independent creatures. The Salesman provides her with the information and requirements for being allowed a unicorn, and we go from there.
It's light, cute, quirky, shiny, metaphorical as fuck, and leaves you feeling good.
The best transformers movie. You know who’s fighting who, and the movie has the heart it needs by the humans done right this time. Good for a beer and popcorn.
Aqua man 4/5
It’s funny that the silliest and least liked of the “main” DC heroes gets the best movie. Jason Manoa (or whatever his name is) is really enjoying himself again. And the movie is better then Wonder Woman. If you like superheroes this is a must watch. For all others it’s a fine spectacle movie that won’t dissapoint.
