  • Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★★★

    In the MCU order of things, this is a smaller movie, but It surpassed the original. Super funny, lots of physical (and quantum) humor, great character chemistry, and an almost self-contained plot.

  • Deadpool 2

    Deadpool 2

    ★★½

    The original must be one of the most overrated comic book movies ever. And the second coming of Marvel's obnoxious anti-hero is even less enjoyable. Yes, it has its moments, but they are few and not that memorable. Not excited to watch the alternate jokes and shots of the "Super Duper" edition... If the chosen for theater didn't work, I'll guess "take B" we'll be less than awesome...

  • Peggy Sue Got Married

    Peggy Sue Got Married

    ★★½

    Afters years of listening to comments praysing this movie, what a big disappointment. Has charm, and a few good sequences, but the next frame all is thrown away. Teenagers are inconsistent, but, come on!

  • Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★

    Delightful, unstoppable and fun adventure. The ending could be a little shorter, but overall, one of the best entries on the MI saga.

  • Now You See Me 2

    Now You See Me 2

    ★★½

    Lazy and unremarkable. Didn't see the first one, but saw the trailer, so...
    This sequel is enamorated with the magicians mythology and the characters grand self/fan-importance but doesn't deliver the least impressive act or illusion. We all have seen Mission Impossible and they do it better...
    Points for crazy underwhelming Harry Potter, hated Woody's hat.

  • Mystic Pizza

    Mystic Pizza

    ★★★

    Romantic comedies are not my thing, but I watched it on a Sunday while cleaning and meddling with the insides of an old computer. Couldn't care less about the Julia Roberts poor-girl/rich-boy thing; the astronomy-girl/married-guy thing was way more interesting, even if we saw the 'shatered illusions monster' coming miles away. The potato-nose girl that runs from compromise was more fun than expected, because usually the roles are reversed.
    Bonus: I'm portuguese, so any tuga-reference was LOL

  • Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★★½

    One of those rare blockbusters with heart. They took what worked better on the first JW and built on that.

  • Tomb Raider

    Tomb Raider

    ★★★

    A very competent and straightforward adventure movie. Lara kicks ass.

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★

    The second of the "stand alone" Star Wars movies, excluding the Ewoks TV Movies. The action scenes were overly exciting, but that was about it. The first Star Wars overcome his flaws with a perfect montage. Editing all the elements was key. But, on "Solo", at least at a first viewing, most of it was too sloppy. I said many times i've come to hate blurry action,and we have a few of those moments, but I guess the weakest point…

  • Pitch Black

    Pitch Black

    ★★★★

    A film sprinkled with surprises, interesting characters and a dubious lead character, and a series of wisely distributed special effects (the wonders that sometimes a small budget can do!) that contribute to the story of nine survivors on an isolated planet and hostile.

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★½

    An accomplishment, ten years in the making. I have the feeling my score for it will increase in future viewings.

  • Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

    Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

    ★★★

    A little rushed (sorry) but a nice job at adapting the universe shattering comic.
