Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit

With Whoopi Goldberg and Lauryn Hill. Instead of being a slapstick comedy like the first, this plays up the musical element more. Sister Mary Clarence (Goldberg) teaches a music class at St. Francis Academy, and decides to start a choir. I love it. Unfortunately, VH-1 cut out the "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" credits sequence completely.

It wasn't bad. Something about it I can't put my finger on it. Definitely not acting, make up, or CGI. Not sure if it was the script or may be editing... maybe.

EMMA%20STONE%20CRUELLA-20210528011937.jpCruella

 

Saw it Twice in Theaters and once on Disney+

 

As a 101 Dalmatians Fan it was a must see Movie for me. It could be done better but it is a very good movie that NEEDS a Sequel. If it stays as one Movie and prequel that it is now it is a good Movie but not good in the 101 Dalmatians franchise but with a sequel and a tie in to the animated or live action movies it could be great but again it needs a Sequel that is true to the 101 Dalmatians movies and Cruella can be a great movie. At the moment a very good stand alone movie and better and fresher than every Disney live action movie in a decade.

220px-The_Tomorrow_War_(2021_film)_offic The Tomorrow War

A good sci-fi action movie with aliens and time traveling. During the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup, a time gate opens on the field. Time travelers from 2051 emerge and warn that a global war is about to lead to an extinction level event. The war is not between nations, but rather against alien predators called Whitespikes. Civilians are drafted and brought to the future via a Jump Link to help turn the tide.

Childish. Gruesome. Highly entertaining. I like it.

 

It wouldn't make any sense if WB brought James Gunn to soft reboot this franchise 5 years later and not let him go off the rails. If there's one movie that had to subvert expectations and embrace the ridiculousness, this is it. Thankfully it does.

 

It's not perfect, I would change a few things here and there. Still, I commend Gunn for how he was able to create a wonderful mix of action, comedy and lots of gore.

 

Just like in Guardians, the heart of the movie lies in its characters. But I'm not gonna spoil anything, so just go see it for yourself, if you haven't yet.

Glad I didn't listen to reviews, as I ended up really loving this. It was a lot of fun, and it kept me engaged from beginning to end. The only movie I've seen in the last year or two that did a fantastic job portraying a strong female character. A great example of show-don't-tell.

It's pretty cheap to rent, and it's also on HBO Max.

Spartacus from 1960, Kirk Douglas kills it as main character.

Even though the script isn't anything special, this has some genuinely thrilling moments.

 

The directing is solid and most of the cast does a great job and elevates the material.

Jon Bernthal, Medina Senghore and Finn Little play their roles with a lot of heart and energy, while Nicholas Hoult and Aidan Gillen provide two very interesting antagonists.

On the other hand, Angelina Jolie is the weakest link with an absolutely wooden performance.

 

Good enough to scratch the itch for an old school thriller.

It's nothing like what I was expecting in terms of tone, and as a political satire it lost me for a bit during the second act, but in the end I had a really good time watching this.

 

Betty Gilpin is the best part of the movie. Funny, twisted, sexy and an absolute badass. Her action scenes are intense and extremely enjoyable. It's a shame the movie loses some steam in the final act, but it still deserves a watch.

F9-The-Fast-Saga-Montreal-Contest-Featur

 

Self-aware but not self-conscious.

 

The movie embraces the internet memes trying to be a smart parody of itself but ends up as the dumbest Fast entry to date. The jokes are lame, the story is dumb and dull, and there's just too much talking in a franchise that depends on action set pieces to stay alive.

 

The existing action sequences are somewhat entertaining but far from gripping. Everything is exaggerated and nonsensical, there's no room left for stakes and tension.

 

Mediocre, even as a popcorn movie.

It was never going to be easy for John Krasinski to keep Part II as fresh and thrilling as the original. Sure enough, the script does veer into some post-apocalyptic tropes at midpoint and it's never as intense as the first movie.

 

Fortunately, there's a great story about hope, true courage and selflessness here. This, along with the solid cinematography and the top-notch cast make it a worthy companion piece to the original film.

To be honest, haven't watched a lot of movies this year but enjoyed all of the few I have seen.

The Freaky Friday meets Friday the 13th idea is a really clever one and the movie does deliver a few fun and gory kills, but it was the comedy part that really made it work for me.

 

Kathryn Newton is awesome as the murderous psychopath, Vince Vaughn properly sells the teen girl stuck in a guy's body and even the supporting cast has some rather funny moments that got a few laughs outta me. A fun movie for sure.
