    Eternals

    ★★★½

    It's not like I don't see the flaws, and yeah, in many aspects, Eternals is too superficial, especially in regards to its many characters. However, in the end, I still enjoyed it quite a bit!

    I really liked the cast, except maybe Richard Madden. The lore was exciting, and I love the golden-circles special effects of their abilities and technology.

    It's a calm film, not boring in my opinion, with a fitting ethereal vibe. Eternals may be formulaic at times,…

    There are glimpses of a really good movie here, but sadly Matrix Resurrections gets lost in a convoluted and unfocused narrative that constantly wants to draw parallels to the first movies in the most egregious ways possible!

    If they had scrapped Morpheus, Smith, conflicts with generals, created shorter but more meaningful fight scenes, and most importantly, removed all the footage from the first movies, focused on the remaining characters, and gave it a proper ending, then this could have maybe…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★½

    Oh wow, I really thought I would like this film.

    First off, there were a lot of, sometimes even abrupt, tonal shifts. Where the film was largely a fast-paced gross-out joke machine, suddenly there were out-of-place emotional character moments that consequently felt really forced.

    Most jokes made me feel almost ashamed to sit in the theater. Dick-jokes, mom-jokes, jokes that I would have thought were targeted at a 12yo audience if the film wasn't R-rated. Especially the Polka-Dot Man could've…
