If I did ½ star ratings, this film would be closer to a 2.5 because there is good here and you will probably still enjoy as a popcorn film. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 tries to score too many points on what people liked in the first movie but instead produces a mediocre sequel which is the norm now for Disney’s MCU.
I wish the movie, expanded a little more with the ‘magical’ element of the story since it was the main selling point, it’s almost criminal they didn’t do more with it. As it is Sleight is a passable film that brings up the issue of surviving in a rough setting without giving you a good solution for getting out.
‘ve seen much better movies on this topic, but if you think this film isn’t realistic in the era of Instagram, Snapchat, Alexa, and WorldStarHipHop…you may want to take a closer look at current events…it may scare the crap out of you.
When it comes to King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the weakest part of the film is the writing. It feels like if they had spent more time polishing the writing and making the flow of the film work better this would be a much better movie. With that said, the movie is enjoyable its many problems makes it more worthy of a rental than a must see in the theaters. Legend of the Sword is a typical Hollywood blockbuster, high on special effects and low on quality.
The film is pretty short, only 85 minutes. Normally this would get under my skin, but here the film doesn’t stretch itself too thin and remains effective. Phoenix Forgotten while not a top 10 film of 2017 is one of my favorite and most pleasant surprises of the year.
Unforgettable is what happens when you beat a dead horse and you aren’t even creative enough to use a different stick.
Free Fire fancies itself as a Tarantino-like film, but the film manages to fail to match every aspect of filmmaking that made Tarantino a success. If it wasn’t for a decent opening, I would rate this film much worse, as it is Free Fire is one of the worst examples of wasted potential in some time.
