Even through their trivial (and predictable) mistakes, this movie manages to make you care for the main characters through different intertwining story-lines. Without the typical silly scenes and filmography that litter this film as well as the other Purge films, it would score higher.

47 meters down was a very exciting movie. Many parts made me jump, but I still have to rate it a 6. I rate this movie a 6 because I, and many other were not satisfied with the ending. I personally feel that the escape needed more action. After the movie I was disappointed. Besides the ending the movie was great. It is not only thrilling but it teaches a great lesson about trusting strangers.

Incredibly original and wonderfully imaginative, Sorry To Bother You defies many genre tropes and delivers a film that is truly unique. All the characters have clear motivations, and are comparable (if not smart caricatures) of people in everyday life. So by the time we reach the more fantastic and science fictional areas of the story, we're already grounded in a sense of realism that helps the greater message of the film carry through. A must watch for the current generation.

Skyscraper is an adequate action film in that it is entertaining enough but isn't something you need to put on the top of your must-see list.


The plot is very predictable. It's basically Die Hard-light with some other action movie cliches thrown in. The obvious dialogue doesn't do the film any favors. Neve Campbell and the Rock are both charming actors, but even they could do so much with what they were given. The Rock's old FBI buddy is an exceptionally sore spot as he is a trifecta of poor dialogue, characterization, and acting.


Still, the film remains watchable due to the action as there are some pretty nice fight and building disaster scenes. I really liked a closed-knit fight near the beginning where both characters do a lot of damage to each other. The Rock's character having a prosthetic leg was a fairly novel idea that was well utilized for the survival and action elements.


Also the film looks nice. The quasi-futuristic tower it takes place in is a semi-unique design that helped elevate everything.

A fascinating, refreshingly candid look into the lives of the accused and those around him as they craft their legal defense and navigate its challenges. 


The filmmakers' access to the Petersons and their legal team allows them to uniquely capture the ongoing humanity of all involved. Although this touches the familiar registers of grief, what makes The Staircase most surprising and effective—not to mention valuable as a case study in social psychology—is how Peterson & Co confront their frustrations and predicaments with a sort of casual aplomb and even macabre humor, apparently no subject too taboo to resist being made light of. 


Most fascinating, however, is that in Peterson family loyalty, as well as the incidental friendships that form through the close relationship with legal counsel—and perhaps also due to the simple mundanity of the legal process itself—we get the impression that several of our main characters are beginning to lose sight of the disturbing facts that, deep inside, they must suspect (or in fact know) to be true.

It’s a fun, simple Marvel movie and an improvement over the first one. Rudd remains the perfect choice for the role and the quick, irrelevant humor again works here better than most MCU films. But just like Infinity War and Black Panther, some special effects are baffling poor and there are a few too many things going on. Although a really enjoyable movie.

Pink Neon is the New Black. Show is unbearable. Saw the great reviews and suggested SO and I watch it. SO enjoys it, I find it utterly disappointing. Looking over the reviews, I see a theme of yay! girlpower!. SO is not exactly pro feminism, so I imagine he is just enjoying it for the bewbs. Usually I like Alison Brie, she was great in community, but here she looks like an aging poorly frump with sad mosquito bite breasts. So I am not even sure what SO is excited about ... Perhaps Betty Gilpin and what she describes as her "baby manatee sized pups". Her boobs. Anyway, this show is dull and seems forced. Plus racist and full of absurd situations. No, no soap actress would ever stoop to the level of faux wrestling. Just gag me with a spoon before I have to watch more of this tripe.

This Romanian movie is set in modern post-Chaushesku's Romania.

It is a drama about many things but more than anything it is about choices that parents make for their children. Parents have more life experience that their children. But does that necessarily mean their long-term decisions for their grown-up kids are correct?


This movie is as different from Hollywood production as possible. People speak soft, even in dramatic situations. Their emotions are subdued, and that makes it even more real.


Excellent performances and casting. The film looks very authentic and truthful.


In short, it is one of the best foreign movies I've seen this year.

Excellent chilean production that handles a relevant topic and shows it relevant, I mean it shows a current reality for its main character and although it can be considered a bit heavy to put a character that in itself is already under attack in an environment so aggressive it can feel a bit superficial, but the work of its director and its wonderful protagonist; Daniela Vega turn this convincing drama into a movie that deserves and demands attention.

This is a very funny movie, I had a very good time watching this, it does justice to some characters, something that comedy movies usually forget to do. Very funny script, with of course some lazy jokes written. Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams are great in it, and the supporting cast does really well. It got a bit messy towards the end, they kind of complicated a nice plot with unnecessary twists, but nothing too bad that ruined the movie.
