  • Kong: Skull Island

    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★★

    A true popcorn movie where you'll be amused with the visual spectacles of the monsters waaay way more than you'll feel sympathetic with all the stupid lines and shitty things the actors did within.

  • Beauty and the Beast

    Beauty and the Beast

    ★★★

    This uninspiring retelling of a classic tale owed a great deal to Stevens and Watson (plus Gad and Evans, perhaps?) whose embodiment of the unlikely chemistry helps it from being just another forgettable remake by Disney.

    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★

    Watching EDGE OF TOMORROW is like you're playing an RTS game with unlimited lives. It's an expanded, war version of GROUNDHOG DAYS, except that some of the formulas do not work that well. The more you get into the movie, the more you find there's something wrong--and you can't stop to re-think what you've just had because this movie keeps you moving (or accelerating) forward. That's why it's exhausting; it wants everything to end fast, with all possible (but ineffective) ways it has. Which is bad, because the premise is nicely introduced and, well, everything's fine in the beginning.

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★½

    Considering how they even made a film that crashed two protagonists that already had their own movies, this is a very, very shallow take. Too bad.
