  • Only God Forgives

    Only God Forgives

    ★★

    It feels like a boring remake of a Miike film. 

    While there’s moments of personality and some interesting violence, I was mostly left cold by Only God Forgives.

  • Jojo Rabbit

    Jojo Rabbit

    ★★

    Genuinely don’t know how to feel about Jojo Rabbit. Ultimately, it feels disposable, which considering the subject matter, is very disappointing. 

    The young actors did a good job, but the rest of the cast was all over the place.

  • Pixar 2021 Disney+ Day Special

    Pixar 2021 Disney+ Day Special

    ★★

    What’s worse - that someone has added this as a movie on here, or that I’m admitting to having watched it, and then I reviewed it? 

    I think we all know the answer.

  • Jungle Cruise

    Jungle Cruise

    ★★

    More like Jungle Boooooos! 

    Disney must be desperate to get some more Pirates of the Caribbean money, because this is practically the same film at times, except harder to follow and less entertaining. 

    When they were writing the script, I bet they thought referring to Emily Blunt’s trousers was hilarious, but in the film it becomes borderline weird. 

    Jack Whitehall’s character is anti-Scottish, so I’m asking Sturgeon to condemn. 

    Jesse Plemons is good, but he’s good in everything.

  • Muppets Haunted Mansion

    Muppets Haunted Mansion

    ★★

    The Muppets are all about heart, and this feels pretty soulless

  • The Haunting

    The Haunting

    ★★

    At the end of the film, I can’t believe the mess they left for the caretakers.

  • America: The Motion Picture

    America: The Motion Picture

    ★★

    Pretty sure I saw this on Newgrounds back in 2003. 

    One star for Killer Mike and one for the rest of the film.

  • Army of the Dead

    Army of the Dead

    ★★

    Release the 95 minute cut

  • The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    ★★

    (It’s not a film)

    If this was a film, it would be a very boring film.

  • We're Going on a Bear Hunt

    We're Going on a Bear Hunt

    ★★

    I'm glad they added a dead grandparent to a sweet little story.

    Absolutely buzzing about it.

  • Mank

    Mank

    ★★

    To begin with, the attention to detail impressed me, and then I realised it was the only thing I was interested in.

    This, in the hands of the Coens, could've been a romp. With Fincher, it comes off as cold and distant.

    Also, zero chance does Oldman look anything other than his actual age in this.

  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    ★★

    I've always thought Temple was the weakest of the OG, sorry, IJ Trilogy, but I'm only really coming to terms with the fact that it might actually be bad.

    Every action scene goes on for too long, the story is bland, and, well, it's pretty racist throughout.

    It's obviously drawing even more inspiration from the serials that inspired it, but at best, it's a flawed feature.
