It's a very cute animation about Santa claus. I am a cynic but this was good
Gemini Man. 5/10. Not as bad as I had heard it was. It passed a couple of hours. Overall though, it kept me interested
Charlies Angels (2019)
It's just a really fun action movie and has some really funny moments in it. A good way to kill some time and have fun, not to be take seriously or anything. Kristen Stewart was a real surprise. She owns this movie.
6 - 6.5/10
Not as bad as the internet wants you to believe nor is it excellent as critics would tell you. It's comfortably somewhere in the middle. The cast did their job, the fight sequences further forward what is wrong with today's action films with unnecessary fast cuts and closeups. It make the scenes jarring and stilted. It's far from the best but I don't think you would come out of this thinking you wasted your time completely. If anything it's not as cheesy as McG's version especially the second one but I feel this is a sequel that is a decade too late.
I caught Le Mans '66 last night and my lord, what a hidden gem that was!
Can't recommend enough for those with even just a passing interest in cars - I give it a solid 7 or 8 out of 10
I MISS WATCHING MOVIES IN CINEMAS
THANKS FOR THIS
i've been busy watching kdrama that i don't go to cinemas anymore to watch movies.
Carnal Knowledge (1971)
It was good i guess but boring too. Who wants to watch a boomer sex drama not me
I didn't play the game this was based on so I don't know how faithful this is to the source material. The film starts out with something simple - a bunch of teenagers go to an abandoned apartment complex to increase their social media clout. It's a horror trope people have seen ad nauseam. Still, the film could've done something fresh but unfortunately it went on, and on, and on; the teens blundering their way out of a situation and then falling to an identical one the next scene. This film could've done some trimming.
Mile 22 - 7/10
Mark Whalberg in this high speed action flick. An interesting ending (see spoiler) and some good action and fight scenes make for a pretty good movie.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - 9/10
Tom Hanks nails it as Mr. Rogers. Such a heartwarming depiction. The "1 Minute" scene is guaranteed to bring tears, deep sadness, and happiness all at the same time. Such a great man that shaped the childhood of so many, including me. I'd give it 10/10 except it didn't quite capture the seriousness of his dedication to children above all else, (like his testimony to congress) and seemed to focus on only his unwavering sweet demeanor.
Don't miss it.
Ford v Ferarri 8/10
I've seen and read several documentaries of this history, and the movie is very close to reality. Matt Damon really captures the swag of Carrol Shelby "I'm Carrol Shelby and I build Race Cars!". One of my favorite parts was when he took Henry Ford II for a ride in the GT40, and made him cry and wish his father could see this. Great movie and probably the best race movie since Le Mans. All the real characters were there, including Lee Iacoca and Phil Remington. I took off a couple points because from what I have read, Carrol Shelby was a lot tougher and more hard-as-nails than Matt Damon portrayed.
Le Mans '66 - 9/10
Top notch car action.
The Knight Before Christmas 5/10
Twenty Feet From Stardom - 6/10
Kinda just as expected. Very interesting, but left me feeling a little depressed that such talented people can't make it "big" in comparison to the nonsense that is churned out nowadays. (and even back then)
Last Christmas - 5/10
it was kinda cute but it was also way too predictable and kinda ruined it for me tbh
Daniel Craig plays a blinder
Fast and a Furious: Hobbs and Shaw - 7/10
Good fun to watch, you know what to expect. Actually better than the the last couple of stand alone films in the franchise.
Too Funny To Fail
Documentary about the short-lived Dana Carvey sketch show which was quite interesting. A suprising amount of now-famous people got a start in this.
