    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…

  • Alien: Covenant

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★½

    Pros:
    - Some nice cinematography
    - Striking images - some very cool scenes
    - Michael Fassbender - incredible actor
    - Danny McBride, surprisingly, is one of the best things in this mess
    - From a fanboys perspective, I enjoyed seeing the "classic" creatures

    Cons:
    - Stupid, forgettable characters
    - Waterston's constant pained expression
    - Billy Crudups performance
    - Almost no James Franco at all
    - Story doesn't make sense
    - Unsatisfying ending - how do we get to LVwhatever in…
