This will be the most watched episode in streaming history!
This is all I wanted from Disney, My Hero, My Man, My Jedi doing what the greatest Jedi in history does. This was the soap I needed to cleanse my mind from that nightmare movie. The episode title is correct, I think this rescued the entire franchise.
Review? Just seeing the X-Wing show up I was on the ceiling, no really, I was on the ceiling! I did fear one time, I honestly thought they were going to keep the hood on him (I knew who it was). So when he pulled back the hood, for one second, I went oh no don't be someone else....I mean it's Disney so you have to forgive me if I had flashbacks, I mean if it wasn't him...seriously I was ready to break my set.
You know, I didn't even need to see his face, I would have been fine with that, the mysterious aspect of him just laying waste and then poof some smoke and the child is gone, that would have worked for me. But yeah, this was AMAZING! I'm thinking how do you top that? Enter the post credit scene, really? this is by far the best Star Wars since 1983, had to slap my face, thought I was dreaming.
Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and all the rest, THANK YOU! So now anyone doing Star Wars that want to nail what 98% of the old fans want (probably new fans too), just need to look at this episode and series. I mean it was like Disney thought we wanted them to reinvent the wheel, just use the same wheels on a new car.
OK, Go watch it again!
The Last Dance (2020)
Babe Ruth was the Michael Jordan of Baseball, not the other way around.
To me, Jordan is the greatest sports legend of all time, everyone likes to say yeah so and so was the Babe Ruth of "insert sport" Well I love the Bambino, but for me, Jordan is the one all others need to be compared to in all sports.
It will be years before a larger than life sports athlete hits like Jordan hit back in the 80's He changed a sport, changed fashion, changed advertising, changed history!
I was lucky to have grown up during his career, what can I say, each sport was defined by HUGE legends at the time, actually dynamic duo's Jordan/Pippen, Gretzky/Messier, Montana/Rice. In baseball Pete Rose defined the 80's for me, 90's I followed Griffey and McGwire, But Jordan overshadowed them all by far, and this series just nailed the reasons why he did.
This series is well done, it will help younger people get to feel a little what we felt back in the 80's/90's. I'm not knocking present time, but things like this are once in a lifetime kind of events, Jordan is the Goat, The legend of all sports! and the Bulls team was a sports dynasty. It's not often a team takes hold of the entire country, let alone the world! It's like this, Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth, and then all the rest.
If you love sports, you will love this series, if you just grew up in the 80's/90's and not even a sports fan, you'll probably like this series, it's that good, even my 80 year old mother watched a little bit, because everyone likes Mike!....It's gotta be the shoes!
The Wrong Missy (2020)
The Right Missy! Funny & Silly RomCom, She is Crazy & Annoying, That's the point
I laughed out loud many times, it was so silly, and it never tries to be anything but silly (good). There are some cringe moments but they weren't that bad, it was balanced and funny. Some movies tend over use it to be funny and it fails, you don't need 40 F-bombs to be funny.
The acting was good, everyone, even the small parts were played well, good lines, funniest I have seen Rob Schneider in a long time (I would love a whole movie about Captain Komante, he's clearly a genius that needs a whole movie ..lol). like others have said, this is not an Oscar movie, it's a goof, a silly romantic comedy not trying to make you think, just relax and laugh at silly things. The more this movie went on, the more I liked it, but I was actually upset at his decision at the end, but it was perfect.
In the end the movie actually had a message, you think you want someone who is more like you, but maybe someone who takes you out of your comfort zone is better, just not that far!
Oh, and a little bit into the credits is another scene...pretty funny, Missy is going to be right about him, but just not the form of transportation.
Amazing Stories (2020)
First Episode was very enjoyable! I loved it.
I have to admit halfway through I thought it was just recycled story of "Somewhere in Time" staring Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour which I liked so I was entertained even if it was going to be the same end. But I think the ending was fantastic, and somewhat of a twist. I was like wow, that's different, plus they added something I found pretty cool to the end, especially if your a collector. So give it a go and watch the first episode, it may not be amazing for all, but it's entertaining, and some will love it. Now I need to see the next episode, and maybe that's a dud, maybe the rest are duds and I have to revise my review of the entire series. I'm certainly not going to trash the entire series without seeing them all. I think the Twilight Zone is a 10, but I don't like every single episode. So I will see how many I like and I'll come back and update how I feel. So far episode 1 was good.
I didn't think I would like it, but I loved it! reversed my thoughts on Ben/Rey
I Really enjoyed this way more than I thought I would, even with all the spoilers I still really liked it, I was surprised. The movie felt very much like Star Wars, plus the jokes were not forced, and new characters like Babu Frik felt like they fit right into the Universe. Rey/Finn/Poe were back together, this was very refreshing, dialog was great, the interactions between all characters was very enjoyable and worked well. The best part for me was the corrections that erased the odd choices made for Luke and plot holes about Snoke and Rey. The new revelations also kinda made me like Ben Solo a little, we know better why he did what he did. Now about Rey, I was never a fan, I wanted Luke back in charge, but now I know this is not Lukes story, or Anakin, this is Rey's story which is made clearly obvious to my joy. This movie makes her character clear, Rey must confront her past and take a journey much like Luke did. We now know about her power and she is nothing like what we were left with after 8, she has issues much like Luke did, now both Luke and Rey are extremely important to the Star Wars mythos, neither more or less, but equal.
So I would say if you were like me and felt let down after the last movie, don't let your hate hurt your love of Star Wars, I feel what is revealed in this movie makes both Rey and Ben more understandable and Luke as well. And for the average viewer, I would say it's and action-packed adventure full of fun and emotion.
So I say go see it, don't just follow the hate crowd, make up your own mind and don't ruin your love for Star Wars because of hate from one movie or character. I say Episode 8 what? I don't remember any episode 8, I'm fine jumping from 7 to 9 and erasing 8 from my thoughts. JJ did pretty good with what he had, he actually pulled it off if you ask me, just sad he didn't do the whole trilogy.
Captain Marvel (2019)
It just wasn't that good, Marvel can't take every character to the big screen
I think this movie was dull and uninteresting, I actually wanted to stop watching halfway through. Story was weak, and wasn't that interesting, oh maybe the cat was interesting. Also, it didn't have a good flow from start to finish, maybe bad editing, or direction, the actors looked uninspired. I feel sorry for Brie, she looked completely uninterested, which has a lot to do with the director. This movie was like the shiny or holographic comic book covers of the 90's that killed the comic market. Feels like they made this movie just because they could, the character is not the best but they feel like the audience will go to anything Marvel, well we did, but the word of mouth will start to hurt all the Marvel movies.
I think it's important to know not enjoying this film has nothing to do with it having a female lead, that is just not the case at all, if it was good I would be very happy. I can name lots of recent movies with a female lead that I loved, Peppermint, I Tonya, Bumblebee, Molly's Game... I really liked those movies. I'm still really hopeful for Black Widow, just hope they have a solid story for it with a great director.
Not what I expected at all, but it was OK.
I like the character Venom, but I was expecting a good stand alone horror movie. This was neither a super hero movie or horror movie, it was something in the middle that failed to hit the mark. I think some people have it right it's more of a dark comedy, but even failed to nail that.
All that being said, I was entertained, it's not a complete disaster and some moments where great, but it lacked something. It's just not the Venom movie I was hoping for. I would like either a full on Marvel super hero movie with Spider-Man or a full on stand alone rated R horror movie.
I think a crazy dark horror movie rated R would have been Amazing.
So, it's just OK, some fun, nothing I would want to see over again.
The Land of Steady Habits (2018)
It's well done, but it's sad and not entertaining at all
Great cast, well directed, I just came out of it too sad, why even show this aspect of life? Some of this is exaggerated story telling, but sadly this is far too close to reality for too many families. So the saddest thing I got from it was....this is really the life of some people, all neat and tidy on the outside but a mess on the inside. I think you might gain a little more compassion toward people you might think are total jerks, but you just don't know until you walked in their shoes. Where did the ugly start? Where will it end? They just keep trying to fill the big empty hole in their hearts.
I don't know, it's a well done movie, just a big downer. I have seen movies like this also be very entertaining, at no point was this entertaining to me. It was just a deep moody drama. So if that's for you, you'll love it.
The Predator (2018)
Didn't work for me, story was poor.
Not much to say, seems nobody can write a serious Predator movie. Such an epic character and kinda relegated to a cheap horror character with a cast that I disliked so much I was rooting for the Predators to off them all.
The only reason I gave it a 5 was due to the fact any scene with a Predator is enjoyable.
American Vandal (2017)
So seriously stupid, it's genius!
Amazingly well directed, which obviously made everyone better, the acting is just so spot on. The writing is outstanding as well, both seasons, in fact the second season may be even better than the first. This parody might not be for everyone, but for what they were trying to accomplish, they did it, and did it perfectly.
It's all done so straight and serious which makes the dialogue just hilarious. Certain lines are crazy funny in the way they are delivered.
I thought the beginning of season 2 was crappy, but after finishing the entire first episode I was hooked again. I would say at least watch 2 episodes before you judge it. After a few minutes you might say this is just kinda silly, but once you realize what there doing it's just great.
Filling the void Breaking Bad and Bloodline left, season 2 is picking up steam!
I love this show, was worried about season 2, but it's actually getting better with every episode. Bateman's Marty Byrde drags his whole family into this money laundering debocle and it just spirals out of control. Laura Linney is excellant as his wife Wendy Byrde, who really evolves into this evil manipulative person, it's like second nature to her, so maybe she was already flawed. The entire cast is great, but they all play very unlikeable evil people, which could turn some people off. But It's what happens to people who lie, cheat, steal, and cover up what they do, regardless if it's small time or big business/politics. Ruth, Marty's sidekick for lack of a better term is a very interesting character, her father is a piece of garbage so we see how she got to be how she is. The only likable person in the entire show is Wyatt, Ruth's cousin, I'm rooting for him. The series is very intriguing and shows what greed, crime and drugs does to people, and those who get dragged into it. The show does a good job showing corruption from every level, local, state, politics, police, business, and how people use others dirty deeds to force them to do their dirty deeds.
If you liked shows like Bloodline, Breaking Bad, you will probably like this show. I think it really starts getting good in Season 2, the end of every episode I look forward to the next one. I like to watch an episode every few days, I actually find it better that way.
Excellent movie that deserves more attention
Very little publicity, I found this by accident and I almost didn't watch it. Don't go in looking for action, or a thrill ride, it's a slow deep thinking movie that makes you start to think about the ramifications of tech when it gets this good, and it will. This movie deals with emotions of both human and synthetic. It doesn't break new ground but it's fresh and interesting with some new twists. You think today's relationships are difficult, when this becomes available it's going to be a nightmare. Thinking about a relationship with a synthetic human seems weird to me now, but people are already in love with their phones, of course people will become attached to other forms of AI.
Wow! destined to be a classic in this genre, GREAT MOVIE!
Amazingly good! Sure it touches on some things we have all seen before, but felt new and original with a great plot. I actually felt the same way as I did when I first watched Blade Runner, had me deeply invested. The effects were all that was needed, nothing huge, and the fight scenes were perfect and not way over the top. The gore in one spot was more than I like and I don't feel was necessary but that's personal and me being super picky, for the most most part it was nothing like like the gore in many movies today. Very entertaining throughout with a few parts that make you laugh which is nice, and has an ending that does not disappoint. GO SEE THIS MOVIE!
The Equalizer 2 (2018)
As good as the original, doesn't disappoint
So many sequels don't live up to the original, I was disappointed with the Jack Reacher sequel and really hoped this one wouldn't do the same for me. Well it did not disappoint, was great from start to finish, I loved every minute of it. Everyone was great in their parts, you don't notice anyone acting. Denzel is perfect as Robert McCall and I loved the addition of Ashton Sanders as Miles. If you liked the first, you will like this and if you're new to the character, ignore the critics bad reviews, they didn't like the first either.
How about a team up of Robert McCall and Bryan Mills? I love both of those characters! Between McCall, Mills and Reacher, who's the top ex gov tough guy?
Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
It's a fun movie, leave your baggage behind and just enjoy it.
No real expectations like Last Jedi, I'm over that, so I don't care who made this movie, I left all that baggage behind, just went in looking for a good original heist movie. I didn't expect it to be my vision, because truth be known, the best part of the original trilogy, is our imagination, the world we make in our own minds.
So, I didn't expect a Harrison Ford copy, just a good portrayal and overall feeling of the character, but from all the pre-movie chatter I thought Alden Ehrenreich would be horrible. Guess what? I thought he was great, and stole the show! Donald Glover great, but I think the writing for Lando wasn't the best. Woody Harrelson was a perfect choice for the part of Beckett and right on point, Emilia Clarke as Qi'ra was also very well acted, as was Paul Bettany, he was really good as Vos. I do think the interaction between Han and Chewbacca could have been a little better, but they are just getting to know each other so maybe that's it. The only thing I didn't like that much was L3-37 droid, just didn't work for me.
I think it's a fun movie with great ending, I think Alden nailed a very young Han, you can even see changes over the course of this movie, he becomes more like the Han we know, and they show us how and why he is like he is, you know the shoot first Han, the cynical Han, but the Han that deep down actually has a heart. The Story was great, it had a good flow, and the absolute best was the ending, the last 15-20 minuets was perfect.
I loved the ride, and I will watch it again for sure, but what about a sequel? I have a bad feeling about that...nahhh, it will be fine, yeah fine.
Black Panther (2018)
I like Black Panther, but I didn't like this movie.
I really had high expectations going in, maybe too high, but at some point I thought the Black Panther was in the Fast and the Furious and then some typical heist movie. OK, I'm being harsh and I didn't hate it, just didn't like it, kinda blah. And all the talk about Marvels first black superhero, but as far as movies go lets not forget Blade. I have seen Blade a few times, and I think I like it better, a little bloody, but I liked Snipes in that role, he nailed it. You know what, maybe I'm just suddenly tired of these current Hollywood blockbusters.
Justice League (2017)
Way better than I thought it would be, I loved it!
This was a fun movie and easily one of the best DC movies in a long time, I actually look forward to seeing it again. The entire movie had a very good pace and wasn't too long, the humor was great and it worked well while maintaining a serious tone overall. The Villain was ehh, but it was the interaction between the heroes that made the movie, didn't really matter who the villain was.
For me the big surprise was the Flash, Ezra Miller was just perfect, he really nailed it. I originally did not like the casting but now I really look forward to the Flash movie (hopefully without that awful costume). Superman was very strong and had some great lines, Cavill delivered! I hope we get a Superman movie with a good script, Man of steel was not great. I also liked Wonder Woman way better in this than the standalone version, Gadot plays a perfect Wonder Woman. Momoa played Aquaman just how they wanted, and it worked well, I just prefer the old school version but nobody else would. I ended up liking Cyborg better than I thought I would, and he was important to the movie. Batman was OK but I'm still not a fan of Affleck as Batman, or Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Future looks very bright for DC, and I think most DC fans will love this movie.
Groundhog Day (1993)
What can I say, I have seen this movie over 30 times!
This has to be the only movie you can watch over and over, and for some reason it's just as good each time! I know of no other movie I can say this about. I'm sure I will be watching when I'm 100 years old and by that time It should be close to 300 times I've watched this.
Should go down in history as a classic, and I'm not the only one since this movie gets tons of play on TV and continues to draw interest. It proves one thing, writing a good story is what makes a good movie period, adding graphic violence, sex, swearing and huge explosions and stunts with tons of computer effects are all over done today, all we want is a good story that takes us through the movie and makes us feel good at the end. (Not to say sex/violence/swearing and big explosions don't have there place:) I just think they are over done and used too frequently to pull off a movie.
funny it's not my favorite movie of all time, but I can watch it more times than any other movie.
OK, But I can't see kids loving this like Harry Potter.
I really don't think the film had a good ending, and I have a hard time with this being a kids movie. I think most kids would think it was a depressing and boring movie, So I have no idea what a target audience would be for this? Tim Burton fans should like it.
It did have some moments, I liked Billy Connolly as Uncle Monty and loved Meryl Steep as the paranoid Aunt Josephine (Realtors LOL). I was not impressed with Jim Carrey as Count Olaf, just something didn't sit right, he was trying to be funny and evil at the same time and should have stuck to evil. I think it was casting mistake as Carrey was really not needed to pull this movie off and was just used as a box office draw which is done way to much these days. It was OK, At least I don't feel I wasted my time, I gave it a 6 out of 10.
I Loved it!
If you go into this movie expecting it to be like the original trilogy you might be disappointed, I myself after being disappointed with Phantom Menace Did my best not to have any thoughts about what I would have done or what I thought should happen. I went in knowing I could not change what's in the movie, and did my best not to compare it with the emotional feelings I feel for the Original 3 films. It's never going to give me the same feelings. With that said I really liked this movie, and loved it the second viewing. The acting is fine, R2 and 3po are funny and the effects are awesome, You need to see it twice to really enjoy everything.
