Cinderella felt like an overly long music video with an ending that you can spot a mile away. It’s all about female empowerment which is a fine goal to pursue but this movie just feels like it’s pandering to the movement without deep development and ending with both satisfactory and disappointing experiences.
Like many, I had high expectations for this film being a fan of Westworld and there were some very good parts and some not-so-good parts. Its lackluster attempt to be a really big blockbuster will leave you feeling disappointed for just about everyone who tried to work around the story of a man who is hopelessly infatuated by a cabaret lounge singer and tries to find the truth about her.
The film does full justice to the passionate push of this being Daniel Craig’s exit from the series. No Time to Die wraps up the plots from past films while pushing the limits of what the person can convey.
Fast and Furious has become a Hollywood franchise that cannot realize that its stay is over which leads to the main storyline being stretched on for far too long. This makes it stumble bigger than ever with Fast 9.
The Suicide Squad, a soft reboot to the 2016 failure of the same name, but this time from director James Gunn, delivers a highly entertaining film bursting with creativity and ultra-violence.
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.
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.
