    ★★

    Not as good as the first, this franchise is getting tired and I'm not even looking forward to the third one.

  • A Quiet Place

    ★★★★

    Jesus christ, I don't do horror well, but a friend said it was more of a thriller.

    I no longer have that friend. It was terrifying but really, really good. I loved every minute of it, but it was such a nailbiter that I was constantly checking my watch, hoping the 90min was over and the credits would roll soon, only to find there was still 45, then 30, then 25, then 15 more minutes left.

    I loved it though, really nice original work.

    ★★★★½

    I don’t follow comics so I go into Marvel movies cold, and it’s rare for their movies to feel fully fleshed out even if you’ve never read a comic about it. 

    I’d say this is easily the most entertaining of them all. Great story from beginning to end, beautiful set design, and a stellar cast. I’ve previously enjoyed the Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America and some of the Ironman films, and Thor Ragnorok was the funniest but Black panther surpassed them all.

    ★★½

    I don’t know if I liked this. It was ok, a pretty straightforward story but it was a bit too wrapped up in its own fascination with Japan. It lacked much of the humanity and delight of Fantastic Mr. Fox or Moonrise Kingdom and overall fell flat. Still ambitious to do a stop action animated movie but definitely one of his least successful stories. 

    Maybe this is Wes Anderson’s Cars 2.
