    𝐺𝑜𝑜𝑑 𝐵𝑜𝑦𝑠 is pretty great.

    The marketing for the film was awesome and even though it seemed like a lot of the funny moments were spoiled in the trailers, the final film still packs an extremely strong punch.

    As comedies go; 𝐺𝑜𝑜𝑑 𝐵𝑜𝑦𝑠 will delivery everything you want and more. The only recent comedy that comes to mind that's just as enjoyable is 𝐵𝑙𝑜𝑐𝑘𝑒𝑟𝑠, maybe 𝐵𝑜𝑜𝑘𝑠𝑚𝑎𝑟𝑡 but I'm thinking films that are solely comedies.

    𝐺𝑜𝑜𝑑 𝐵𝑜𝑦𝑠 doesn't do anything special, but if you want to go have a good time, it's definitely the right choice. Here's hoping we get more comedies like it.

    𝑆𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑦 𝑆𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑖𝑒𝑠 𝑡𝑜 𝑇𝑒𝑙𝑙 𝑖𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝐷𝑎𝑟𝑘 combines stunning cinematography with decent thrills to successfully deliver a memorable horror film.

    My only issue with the film is how quickly characters deal with the death of those closest to them and a subplot regarding the main character that doesn't go anywhere.

    Looking at the financial numbers for 𝑆𝑐𝑎𝑟𝑦 𝑆𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑖𝑒𝑠, a sequel will be in the works soon, and I hope everyone who's seen the film will be as excited for it as I am.

    𝑂𝑛𝑐𝑒 𝑈𝑝𝑜𝑛 𝑎 𝑇𝑖𝑚𝑒 𝑖𝑛 𝐻𝑜𝑙𝑙𝑦𝑤𝑜𝑜𝑑 is a great time.

    There's one moment in the film that the audience was louder than any moment of the opening night of 𝐴𝑣𝑒𝑛𝑔𝑒𝑟𝑠: 𝐸𝑛𝑑𝑔𝑎𝑚𝑒.

    It's slow but develops characters really well. If you're a Tarantino fan chances are you'll like 𝑂𝑛𝑐𝑒 𝑈𝑝𝑜𝑛 𝑎 𝑇𝑖𝑚𝑒 𝑖𝑛 𝐻𝑜𝑙𝑙𝑦𝑤𝑜𝑜𝑑, but if you aren't, your odds of liking it are significantly lower.

    This being said, the entire last act is amazing, the soundtrack is great, Brad Pitt stands out and there are some super badass moments.

    For the best experience, see 𝑂𝑛𝑐𝑒 𝑈𝑝𝑜𝑛 𝑎 𝑇𝑖𝑚𝑒 𝑖𝑛 𝐻𝑜𝑙𝑙𝑦𝑤𝑜𝑜𝑑 in a full theatre.

    Holy shit!

    I went into 𝑅𝑜𝑐𝑘𝑒𝑡𝑚𝑎𝑛 expecting to be captured by the music of Elton John and nothing else but this film is a masterpiece due to its cinematography, choreography, soundtrack, acting and everything in between.

    I don't usually cry when watching films but I shed tears of both joy and sadness during 𝑅𝑜𝑐𝑘𝑒𝑡𝑚𝑎𝑛.

    Words cannot describe how emotionally broke I am after witnessing the life of Elton John shown in the film and Taron Egerton sells it…
