Too Much Answered Too Soon
While the episode does give satisfactory answers to mysteries such as: How did Monica enter Westview?, What was the significance of the toy plane?, etc. As well as giving answers for who the 'cast' is in reality and how Jimmy contacted Wanda through the radio. But what makes this episode significantly weaker than the others is that it answers too much too soon as well as falling back to the typical Marvel backdrop of a CGI government workplace involving superheroes however I did like how The Blip's effects were portrayed with Monica as well as seeing Darcy and Jimmy return to the MCU.
Personally, I'd much preferred this episode to be one of the final episodes and instead watch Wanda and Vision descend down the timeline of sitcoms firstly, seeing them encounter mysteries which don't add would of made an excellent engaging slow burn THEN have episodes like this which tie up all the loose ends and sets up Phase 4. However, due to the young audience who aren't particularly familiar to all the little details of the old sitcoms as well as worries about their engaging through the slow burn, Marvel has clearly added this episode into this slot to try and keep them hooked which is just unsatisfactory and frankly mediocre in terms of storytelling as we know too much now whereas it would of been so much stronger to watch a slow burn mystery and them have the final episodes dedicated to the answers and a Phase 4 set up.
Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
The Perfect Sequel
While I loved the original, the original didn't get me thinking as much as this film did. This film perfectly comments on our society today while also forwarding with the artistic direction choice of showing what we predict the future will look like in an exaggeration manner while it also being easy to tell which generation made the film, very very similarly to how original was artistically directed.
The cast is amazing all round, with Ryan Gosling and Ana De Armas being the particular scene-stealers in this amazing plot. I loved the sly but obvious comments on our society today and how it questions how much humanity we have, we literally live in an age where we try to cancel one-another. This is furthermore shown by the fact that Joi, De Armas' hologram character, has more humanity in her than most of the cast.
The production design is amazing and while I'm not a huge fan of CGI and didn't really like the overuse, I felt like the film couldn't work without it. Overall, the perfect sequel.
Inside No. 9: Thinking Out Loud (2020)
This episode is without a second's doubt the best of Season 5. The characters, the twists, the experimental story telling, the plot, everything is just perfect. In was blown away by this episode, even more than last week which I didn't think was possible. Just perfection.
Overall, the best of Season 5.
Great adaptation of Dahl's novel. Well paced with amazing performances all round. Pam Ferris, particularly steals the show when she's on screen. A great family, children's film which is enjoyable for all ages. Just overall greatness. Thank You Danny DeVito for the wonderful memories.
More of a Readaption than a Remake
This remake lacks the brilliance of Brain DePlama's original masterpiece however nevertheless the are definitely worse remakes out there. However, this film feels like less of a remake and make of a retelling of the book. The Black Prom is definitely the best scene in the film because of the satifysing deaths and Moretz's acting abilities. It's complicated to describe this film as it lacks on making the story more of a tragedy by only really killing the bullies and allowing the bystanders to live however when Carrie was murdering her bullies left, right and centre it made me think more about the tragedy of Carrie's life than the original did. That being said, De Plama's adaption of the book is still the suprerior film in terms of quality by far but don't let that put you off this one. It's still good, not horrible but not the originals standards. In terms of the acting, everyone does a good job especially Chloe Grace Moretz who plays a good Carrie however I can't help but think with her strong build and beauty that she could definitely hold her own against those bullies.
Overall, a good retelling of the book but not as good as the original.
A Underrated Piece of Cinema Brilliance
Bette Davis gives an amazing, unforgettable performance as the lead, Baby Jane Hudson. Crawford also gives a great performance however she doesn't quite shine in the film as much as Davis. The manipulation, insanity and psychology of Jane gives the audience a oblivious nature to what she's going to do next to her sister. The movie is better the half the products Hollywood spews up these days.
One of the Best Modern Horrors
The movie has a strong plot, characters and pacing.Vera Farmiga and Isabelle Fuhrman are the undeniable stars of the film, with both giving strong performances. The film however isn't perfect as it relies on little unrealistic details in order to establish certain key scenes. That being said these are minor details and don't hurt the movie in entertainment value.
Overall, a great horror flick with flaws but what doesn't have flaw?
Nine to Five (1980)
Great 80s Comedy
This movie is one of the best comedy's to one from the 1980s. It has a great cast all round, great story, great characters, great everything really. Modern feminists should take notes that a female centric movie can have a male antagonist because they're an simple antagonistic and not just for being a man. The movie also has a very comforting feel to it.
Overall, great comedy with a stellar cast and story. Definitely a recommendation for a movie after work.
The Original, The Best, The Underrated?
Everything about this movie is perfect. The direction, the pacing, the novel loyalty, the acting, the score. Everything is simply amazing. This all leads to a scene in horror film in which your never seems to ever forgot. This has lead Carrie to be one of the most recognisable staples in horror. However, it also seems to be overshadowed by other 70s horror flicks such as: Halloween and The Excorist. While the film is not actually that scary until the unforgettable prom scene, the film focuses on how wicked bullying is and how it can effect the victims.
Overall, the masterpiece of a movie with a wonderful score, acting and direction. A definite must watch.
The Prodigy (2019)
Nothing That Hasn't Been Done Before
The Prodigy is a mediocre that struggles with weak writing and unoriginality. The character choices are ok but awful in the final act of the movie, as it plays out in such a predictable, stupid way. The acting is quite good especially from Jackson Robert Scott who manages to perfectly play such a unlikeable antagonist at such a young age. The cinematography is one of the stronger points of the movie too.
Overall, a forgettable movie with an unoriginal plot and weak characters choices. The acting and cinematography are the stronger points of the movie.
Man of Steel (2013)
The Zack Snyder Superman
This serves more as a standalone movie or trilogy opener than a franchise beginner however it obviously didn't know it was that at the time. The movie is quite enjoyable and a good Superman film, held by a great cast. However, it lacks the timeless feel that the Christopher Reeve Superman films had and feels more that a Synder flick than a Superman flick and I actually like Synder's previous works. The city damage during the final act also held weight on the film of me personally as the damage feels way to overkill. I wouldn't feel that if this felt like it was ripped straight from the comics however the movie aims to be realistic so that's why it doesn't stick the landing for me personally.
Overall, a enjoyable movie however not the best Superman flick going.
The House of the Devil (2009)
A Great Throwback to 80s Religion Horror
Ti West's underrated triumph is held by the master tension and unsettling atmospheric tone. I further love this movie as everything from: the sets, the fashion, the hair. Everything looks as though it's directly ripped from the 1980s. I appreciate the criticisms towards the movie for the final 10 minutes however it doesn't spoil the film for me personally however it would of been better to get a creepy elder actresses to play the part of the mother instead of what was presented. My other criticism is how minor sub-plots like the drain noises and if Samantha is possessed or not never seemed to be explained however these are so minor that it still doesn't take away from this movie for me personally. Jocelin Donahue is incredibly likeable and brilliant as the heart of the film as we follow her through the mystery that lurks behind her babysitting job.
Overall, a great, underrated indie horror flick. Which is a master throwback to the 80s flicks and is held by the cast and direction.
Black Christmas (2019)
1st & 2nd Act = Enjoyable. 3rd = Woke Mess
For the 1st and 2nd Acts of the film, the film is actually enjoyable while being nowhere near close to the greatness of the original. However, its still fun while enjoyable characters in: Riley and Nate. However in the final act of the film, the movie completely falls apart as it tries to battle misogyny while being misandrist in the process. Nate is even killed off for wanting to treat equally by the girls, like how is that oppression on the girls part. It's also revealed the raping, murderous fraternity represent all men and give into their alpha aura or some crap. As I said it completes falls apart because of a stupid social commentary which is even written to make no sense. Kris is also on of the most unlikeable characters ever, getting her friends into deeper trouble constantly as she fights for her social justice.
Overall, for a hour this movie a fun time however for the last half hour is completely ruined because of hypocritical social justice commentary. This is all pointless as the movie is a supposed to be horror movie, which I think we can all agree is the last genre that needs empowerment shoved down our throats.
The Witches of Eastwick (1987)
A Underrated Masterpiece
This film has to be one of the most underrated ones out there. The cast is basic perfection and they are accompanied by an amazing score, courtesy of John Willians, and story based upon the book by John Updike. This has got to bee one of the best pieces of witch media in cinema.
The plot follows three lonely women in a suburban town whom soon met a mysterious and devilish man whom it's exactly who he seems to be. As the film goes on, the mystery of whether Jack Nicholson is the devil or not becomes more and more apparent and the Witches start to realise how dangerous he truly.
I also love that while this film maybe categorised as a feminist film however Jack Nicholson isn't the antagonist because he's a male, he's the antagonist because he's the devil and wicked. This is exactly how female centric films should be towards men, some are true antagonists and the others are protagonists. This sis exactly what the woke media of today gets wrong as female centric movies are made however every man in said movie is either completely stupid and a complete pig and it's somehow surprising when the film is labelled as sexist and dumb.
In short, this film is amazing because of it's actors and their ability. The incredible story and score. It also should be a note taker for future female-centric directors however because of its underration that will never happen.
Tarantino's Misunderstood Masterpiece
Tarantino's latest addition is one that will be misunderstood by audiences for sure. They'll expect blood at every scene like his other pictures whereas he's swapped violence for character work on the central characters instead of killing them. However, the ending scene will delight Tarantino's fans with it's jaw-dropping unexpectance.
Leonardo DiCarpio, Brad Pitt and Magrot Robbie shine with outstanding acting in this piece as well as stellar character development for DiCarpio. The movie mainly consists of: a very historically accurate 60s setting and atmosphere as well as many A-list cameos and supporting roles playing 60s actors. This move was a basic and clever love letter to the 1960s Hollywood. Even when Tarantino changes history to how it should of happened at the end, he still hints at the actual events through a stellar soundtrack and clever editing.
Sadly, people won't expect this from Tarantino and will expect a blood bath on screen and will see this as a bore fest when actually is one of Tarantino's cleverest, delivering what he said was the closest to Pulp Fiction in his other works.
