    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    Conclusion:

    Although Karen Gillan is always a pleasure to watch, this film is a mess. It's not that funny, doesn't have any decent action scenes and no real story. Even The Rock is phoning it in, which is surprising, since he usually goes all in. Some mildly interesting takes on gaming tropes, and Jack Black plays a girl surprisingly well, but it's not nearly enough to save this film.

  • The Shape of Water

    The Shape of Water

    ★★★★★

    Pros:
    - All actors were phenomenal, and Michael Shannon is a treasure
    - The sound design was fantastic
    - Creature design was fantastic also
    - Set design and look was amazing

    Cons:
    - Not many negatives here

    Conclusion:
    I loved the film - it was a worty Oscar winner. As a long-time fan of Guillermo Del Toro I am very glad he received this honour.

    Passengers

    ★★½

    Pros:
    - Very gorgeous designs and sets
    - Michael Sheen - brilliant

    Cons:
    - Holes in the logic that were too large to ignore.
    - Chris Pratt's one-note performance - he is a better actor than this.
    - Totally stupid plot devices to put characters in peril.
    - Laurence Fishburne's character was wasted in this film - he was only there to provide access to otherwise inaccessible areas of the ship/system.

    Conclusion:
    I get that the interaction between Chris Pratt…

  • Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle

    Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle

    ★½

    pros:
    - Both John Cho and Kal Penn are likeable actors.
    - Some funny cameos
    - Some funny jokes

    Cons:
    - Not as funny as expected.

    Conclusion:
    I have been repeatedly told by friends to watch this film, as it will be "hilarious" and I will "love it". And finally I had an opportunity to see it for myself. I can't say I was impressed - there were a few funny moments, but ultimately I was disappointed.
