Jungle Cruise is definitely not a film for adults who have progressed past the level of a 12-year-old. The writers tried to cram as much action into 2 hours as possible. It went from thrilling to exhausting and finally tedious. But at the end of the day, it was entertaining enough to keep us hooked.
Although Mimi has a great concept; surrogacy, that is all it has to be proud of. Of course, there’s great acting, but that’s just it. There isn’t really any plot that propagates this beautiful concept. The movie overlooks various factors including social, religious, and economic issues, and does not address any of these instead masks it with the typical Bollywood comedy.
Marvel has always had problems with bland and goofy writing that makes it feel too adult for a children’s show but too childish and shallow for a film for grownups. The beginning moments Loki are pretty cringe and confusing. It gets better, but not by much.
If you are willing to watch a film filled with really bad attempts at family drama, poor CGI-focused action sequences, and an ending like the writer and director quit before the completion of the movie, well then Black Widow is the film for you.
The Tomorrow War is a different take on an alien invasion premise, which does help give it a slightly fresher appeal that lasts until a few moments before things start to feel cliche.
John Krasinski’s directorial A Quiet Place Part II has shown us how good a sequel can be. The second part is might not be more nerve-racking or emotional than the first one, yet, it delivers a story that grips the spectator’s neck from the start till the end making it one of the best edge of the seat thrillers that you will experience.
In The Heights is one of those films that make you feel that the magic real cinema is still alive. From the very first shots, we are treated to the vibrant, colorful, and creative energy that bombard the senses for the following two and a half hours.
Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It feels a tad more jumbled as if dozens of pieces of a creative puzzle were never fully assembled. The film also feels somewhat rushed, with the story abandoning the legal aspects of the case and leaving certain characters in the dust. But these types of movies have always been known for its horror elements, so does it win in that department? Yes and No.
An imaginative retelling of a classic story with just enough twist and revelation to add authenticity to an origin telling. Cruella is a tonic served with dark humor and outrageous fashion against a backdrop of seventies punk rock and revolution. If you go into it with the right expectations, then this film is bloody brilliant. It really delivers what it promises to be; wildly entertaining.
The Unholy starts out with an interesting plot and has a couple of good actors/actresses throughout. However, the horror element is basically non-existent because of how the villain looks or reacts and how unnecessary her character ends up being. All that without mentioning just how stupid the religious elements are. But that’s not a surprise, isn’t it?
