    Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew

    ★★

    This is by far the weirdest and least satisfying Pokémon movie I've seen. The story meanders around for most of the runtime and seems to be having multiple unrelated storylines most of which don't really matter in the end.

    ★★★½

    I'm not that big on magical martial arts films but as far as those kinds of films go this wasn't that bad. I enjoyed that there was some actual hand to hand and weapon to weapon fights. The characters were fun and well acted and the story overall reminded me of Romeo and Juliet. The ending annoyed me a bit but what can you do.

    ★★★

    Over all this was a decent superhero film. I liked the actors and I liked the fact that most of the cast were black. However that might actually be part of the problem, because all they seemed to do was take the same tired old story and character template and switch all the white characters and made them black and made the token character white. so while nearly all the characters are black with the token white guy it all…

    New Year's Evil

    ★★½

    Yes the acting is bad and yes the writing and story aren't that good either but I was entertained mostly because the killer wasn't perfect. In most horror movies the killer is perfect up until the last kill(s) when all of a sudden they start having trouble and get clumsy but luckily here the killer struggled the whole way and that's what made it fun. Well that and the psychotic son. The small twist at the end helped too.
