I will admit a friend wanted me to see Crazy Right Asians. It may not be a lot of things but what you get is a good romantic comedy, excellent subplots, Asian family values which most of us including myself really knew nothing about. Homes that are beyond a description of beyond tacky. Believe me, they make the clothes in Weird Al’s Tacky video seem normal. I would say 6/ 10
I went to see Christopher Robin last night with a mixture of wanting to see it and nervous what horrible take Disney gave this modern version of Winnie the Pooh. Let me tell you that this Graymuzzle Pooh fan actually enjoyed this film. I am really planning on seeing it again once it hits the streaming services. I would highly recommend it, but only to those who like the trailer. Why is this? Basically, it is because not everyone likes kids films which this is, the audience in the theatre was made up of mostly kids. But everyone enjoyed it, all I can say is that if you love the Pooh stories. You will like the film. I won’t say, love, as the plot has been used for more than once.
Overall 7/ 10
First of all, I want to make it clear to everyone that I have NEVER seen any of the previous Hotel Transylvania films. In fact, I was drawn to this film because of that HILARIOUS trailer.
So I really didn’t know what to expect, but let me tell you this film does not disappoint. It is absolutely HILARIOUS from beginning to end. I will even go as far to say that the animated credits at the very end of the film are absolutely worth watching.
Like I told a friend Harry Potter it isn’t. Mary and The Witch’s Flower is an incredible film with so many twists and turns you know you have to watch it a second time to absorb everything.
The visuals are stunning, there are points you can’t even tell it’s an animated film. Story / Plot unique but very entertaining, all I can really say here is Mary and The Witch’s Flower is one of those films you really want to watch to the very end. Really you will not be able to figure out what happens next save for a few times. A film all ages will enjoy, and like I said quite unique. All I can say for the Harry Potter reference it’s similar at one point, but circumstances are far different. This is where it gets interesting more like will they or won’t they. See I set myself for a spoiler free review and I am already hinting at a major plot point.
All I really can say is this if you enjoy the trailer you will absolutely love the film.
My score 10/10
I knew when I saw both the opening of The Incredible 2 by the voice actors and that warning on the light sensitivity issue that some might have that I was about to see something very special. WOW!!! Excuse the word but it truly was an INCREDIBLE film. Really in some ways far better than the original, which I did see before I went to see the sequel. A far deeper story, way-way deeper plot, the animation is far better than the original. Easter Eggs galore, and so much if I even say a word more about it. Except to say it does have a good ending, everything including that much talked about the scene with the “Underminer”. To this furry makes a whole lot of sense and any talk that is doesn’t or whatever. In my opinion, they did not see the film. Because there is no other conclusion, like Jack – Jack’s powers and who becomes that kids babysitter at one point simply had the audience stunned. I am really not joking.
Incredibles 2 is truly one of Pixar’s best.
The whole family will enjoy this film guaranteed.
It was all the talk about Solo being both good and bad that actually got me to see it. I know as strange as it sounds they are both right. Overall Solo: A Star Wars Story is a good film, you can’t fault the acting, the directing or even the script. The film has enough action to keep anyone excited. But what is bad about the film you may wonder. For the most part, it is very predictable. In fact, about 70% is that way, you have seen the same things in other films and you know what is going to happen next. The reason that is an issue if you have seen the original trilogy, you just know Han Solo is very unpredictable. Unless you have seen the films countless times you can’t quite be certain what is his next move. Even in The Force Awakens, Han Solo’s next move was uncertain. More than in this film. But I will say when he does become unpredictable that is when the film shines.
Really I am not going to tell you that you should not see this film or just wait until it lands on one of those streaming services. If your curious go ahead and see it, just know you will be asking yourself, “Why on earth would he do that” a lot.
I saw Cars 3 yesterday and as much as some of you think it’s the same old, same old Disney/Pixar animated film. You would be wrong. Oh sure why hide what you saw in the ad/trailer that Lightning McQueen get involved in a terrible accident on the track while trying to beat a high speed rookie named Jackson Storm. I know this hasn’t been talked about in other reviews. But mainly the film is about retirement, knowing when your time has past. That can be a really difficult time for some of us. Lightning McQueen is no exception, all the while dealing with the countless changes in his life. For example Rustzees being sold to another company, is it’s new owner trying to help him or just use him, getting a trainer. Seeking out the answer to ‘Why we race”, we also learn Doc Hudson was a bigger part of his life than we knew. When he died part of McQueen also died.
All as the end kept on getting closer I kept on thinking it was going to be the same old ending. But McQueen never finishes the final race in the film. To reveal any more than that is a HUGE spoiler.
I just want to say being the fan of the entire series. This one left me both happy and sad…and I will not tell you why. You have to see the film for yourself.
I give it 9/10
