    Avanti!

    Billy Wilder Marathon

    58/100

    Avanti is a mixed bag of a Billy Wilder comedy. On one hand, it's a mesmerizing film of a summer affair, filled with funny gags, incredible chemistry from Jack Lemmon and Juliet Mills, and stunning Italian locales.

    However, the 2.5-hour runtime really drags out an incredibly thin narrative and the film feels aimless at times, despite a fun premise and great individual moments.

    Overall, Avanti is not the worst from Billy Wilder, and I enjoyed…

    63/100

    A better Sonic film than its predecessor, but not without its faults.

    Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

    An animated animal movie, made by the crudest animation studio ever, with no dialogue coming from our main horse characters except some cheesy narration from Matt Damon, a 100% serious plot with very little slapstick gags, alongside some top-quality and jaw-dropping mixtures of 2D animated characters and CG-animated landscapes, some high emotional trauma with sequences that rival How to Train Your Dragon, and the bizarre collaboration of music provided by Hans Zimmer and Bryan Adams of all people.

    One of DreamWorks' most spectacular and highly underrated films to date.

    King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

    I will never understand the mentality of modern filmgoers. They'll say they want something original and different, but when an original and different film comes out, they'll complain that it is weird, silly, and bonkers, even though the sequel or remake they just watched has the same elements and the love the living crap out of it (like Guardians 2, for instance).

    That's why I'm bummed that films like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword flopped, because in my eyes,…
