You know Future World was doomed to fail when you saw “Also Starring Snoop Dogg” in the trailer. A film that was shot two years ago is a good sign that Lionsgate wanted absolutely nothing to do with this movie and it wasn’t because of Franco’s #MeToo allegations, it was because the film is horrible.
Solo: A Star Wars Movie is a mediocre film that shoots itself in the foot preventing it from becoming great. If the writers never said Lando was ‘pansexual’ they wouldn’t have caused more people to pass on the film than want to watch it. If Kennedy could do one Star Wars film where a lead female character doesn’t stop the film to make a progressive rant against Capitalism, Star Wars fans would have less to complain about.
I don’t know why Hollywood acts like making a decent movie based on a video game is the equivalent to a torture trap created by Jigsaw. After the complete bore that was Tomb Raider, the next Hollywood cash grab on the queue is Rampage. If you don’t remember Rampage, it was basically a game where a giant wolf, gorilla, and lizard destroy a bunch of buildings in various cities. So it took FOUR people to write a movie that makes its own plot irrelevant so fast, they could have just started the film at the last 30 minutes and it would have made just as much sense.
As fun as Ready Player One is, there is a very important message about living life and not letting your online persona define you because you never truly know what is real or fake in an online bubble. With that said, Ready Player One is easily the most fun I’ve had in the theater all year and I have a hard time believing the audience won’t enjoy it either.
Giant robots, Giant monsters, and at least one Chinese actress to identify with means the film’s target audience (China) should enjoy this. Pacific Rim Uprising excels in the bare minimum, as long as you aren’t asking too much of this film, you’ll enjoy it on your own time, but this is not something you need to run out to your theater to watch right now, save your money for Avengers like everyone else.
You remember that ONE book you were forced to read back in the 4th grade? You don’t remember anything about the book anymore, but you vaguely remember the title. Disney decided to give your vague memory a 100 million dollar budget and made one of the most boring films of the 2010s.
Due to a poor test screening, there were concerns that the film was “too intellectual” and “too complicated” for mainstream audiences…Look I understand you put 55 million dollars behind this, but anytime someone says that a film is “too smart” for audiences, its Hollywood’s condescending way of saying that you are too stupid to understand their vision.
Like many of you, I was watching Superbowl 52 (I refuse to congratulate the city of Philadelphia) and saw the trailer for The Cloverfield Paradox, a film that claims to explain the origins of the 2008 hit film Cloverfield. A secret Netflix exclusive seemed too good to pass up so I decided to do a last-minute review. For those of you who saw this trailer and thought that you were finally going to get the answers to your ten-year-old Cloverfield questions, I’m afraid you have been misled…again.
