    When the beginning of the film's text talked about the supposed 1000s of miles of tunnels under the USA, I cringed.

    The movie starts off fine. But as you're piecing together who/what the baddies are...the movie's explanations get dumber and dumber.

    *sigh* Skip this film. And skip the goddamn fingerless gloves!

  • Bumblebee

    Bumblebee

    The first 12 minutes made my jaw drop. The action and CGI were excellent!
    Then we meet the lead character, and I'm rooting for her. I mean, who doesn't like Hailee Steinfeld?

    But her character sucks, all the humans suck, all the following scenes drag out too long and are mundane AF. Even the evil bots are meh. By the halfway mark, I was begging Michael Bay to return.

    verdict: HARD PASS

  • The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

    The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

    ★★★★

    After watching the trailer, I was preparing to be disappointed. Figured it'd just be a shameless cash-grab.

    But...It sucked me in, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Best musical of 2019 so far!

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★★

    At 2.5 hrs it's easy to see what they did with Aquaman...they forgot that final edit...which makes this my 3rd favorite DCEU flick so far.

    Aquaman is a mixed bag: it's part badly-acted 80s action flick, part corny superhero dialogue TV show, part globe-trotting adventure, and part awesomely epic CGI video game.

    It seems they wanted to do a lot of varied scenes so they did them all THEN LEFT THEM ALL IN.

    Amber Heard's outfits always out shined her.…

  • Mary Poppins Returns

    Mary Poppins Returns

    ★½

    *sigh*
    All the actors gave good performances, and the singing was very enjoyable. But everything else was very "meh".

    The pacing is dreary. The story is dull. The CGI was good, but the animated part--How in the hell could they draw such simple boring cartoon animals?!?! THIS IS FRIKKING DISNEY AFTER ALL. Breakfast cereal commercials can draw better ones!

    Even the lovable Dick Van Dyke couldn't save this movie. It just made us wanna go enjoy the original for the umpteenth time. (and we did)

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    "I mean, another-another dimension. Alright people. Let's start at the beginning one last time..."

    I love the storyline, love the art style, love the dialogue, love the voicework, love the Stan Lee cameo, love the corny vignette after the credits. Even Nic Cage couldn't ruin it. It made even this jaded superhero movie fan laugh aloud several times. It's no wonder it grossed almost $360M.

    *BAGEL*

  • Green Book

    Green Book

    ★★★½

    Wow, it seems the kids here don't like this flick. I found it watchable and interesting. 1962 was exactly like this.

  • Ben Is Back

    Ben Is Back

    ★★½

    This movie taught me that the only thing worse than drugs is drug addicts.

  • Bohemian Rhapsody

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★★

    It was okay. I guess the internet hype and trailer had me hoping for more.
    It really just made me wanna watch an actual Queen documentary instead of a docudrama with winks and nudges about how everything turned out.

  • Ralph Breaks the Internet

    Ralph Breaks the Internet

    ★★★

    I loved the first film. This one was passable. It felt like a Disney STV sequel where Ralph learns about the Internet.

    The in-your-face Disney parts and blatant "www product placement" were jarring and cringe-worthy. I guess one day Apple and Google will be bought by Disney and we'll all laugh about this. :-\

  • Overlord

    Overlord

    ★★★½

    The problem with horror movies is they require 45-60min of boring day-to-day reality before the horror stuff. This film solves that by substituting a WWII story for the "boring reality".

    You know, like in Predator(1987).

  • Mortal Engines

    Mortal Engines

    ★★★

    Movie pitch: "After WWIII, cities on tank treads gobbling each other up."
    *greenlight*

    This is a movie. A hilariously corny, popcorn-munching, turn-off-your-brain movie.
