The movie leans too much on dinosaurs being cool and Chris Pratt being likable and cool, the writing is really lackluster. The plotting of the two kids is some lazy second-hand Spielbergism.
The CGI looks great when the camera holds still, but the shots are constantly fast-panning during the action, making the screen a blurry mess. Several scenes seem to be there mostly to have stills of Chris Pratt looking good in front of a motorcycle, on a motorcycle, with…
It's Die Hard on a battleship. This time, instead of John McClane; we get a cook. The cook? Well, he's Casey Ryback. He has a Cajun cooking style, he's handy with a knife, and he knows Kendo. When his ship is taken over by a renegade former CIA operative, it's up to Casey to save the day. Under Siege could possibly be Steven Seagal's shinning moment. He owns the role of Casey. He might be missing his signature ponytail due…
Is it better than Mad Max: Fury Road?
How does it stack up to the previous Terminator films?
It can be argued that Genisys is the third best in the series, but that really isn't saying much.
I haven't seen any of the old Terminator movies. Do I need to watch them first?
You could watch and understand Genisys even if you haven't seen any of the previous films in the franchise since this one…
I bet Ringo Starr loves the shit out of this. He probably sat there watching the movie and nudging his friends in the side with the biggest grin on this face. "Ahhh, they LAVA each other", he says at the close of the short film.
When he arrives home later that night he begins to compose a rock opera on the love of Volcanoes because he is so touched by the great act of love between these two mountains.
like staring into the abs of god.
completely different from the first film, it feels like an R-rated STEP UP sequel as shot by Soderbergh, and if that idea does nothing for you, don't bother. characters bounce off each other beautifully in more ways than one... the film is so content to have zero concrete stakes. more involved in the communion of spectacle and the binding force of entertainment. reminded me of a great martial arts film re: the skill…
Jai Courtney actually isn't the worst thing about this movie. If anything this gives me a little bit of hope for him in Suicide Squad. I can't even definitively say why, but for whatever reason I liked him in this movie.
All of the performances are actually pretty good. Terminator Genisys biggest problem is that way too much time spent trying to develop a story that makes little sense. The plot is confusing as hell. Through out the entire film,…
