  • John Wick

    John Wick

    ★★★★

    Loved this one. A pure-bred action film that gets right everything it needed to get right. I want to say it’s almost perfect; the “platonic ideal of action flicks”. It’s vicarious entertainment at its best. You feel giddy and satisfied every time some douchebag character loses his shit over the mere mention of Wick’s name. The movie flows so well, and feels like a low-key adventure film at times. It’s also pretty visually interesting and dynamic. Literally can’t think of anything to complain about. Solid picture.

  • Hellboy

    Hellboy

    ★★★

    Don’t usually like this sort of thing, but this slightly above average comic book flick worked for me, even if it had its fair share of flaws. Very CG heavy (and it’s cheap, early CG too), characters aren’t developed and disappear entirely by the end, and the story’s pretty bland, but it was a fun ride. Hellboy’s endearing, and I liked the world. The over-the-top tone worked for me here even when it hasn’t in similar films. Not great, but not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. Could be better, but if you think you’ll like it you probably will.

    Atlantis: the Lost Continent

    ★★½

    Cute and interesting, but pretty forgettable. More of a sci-fi film than I expected, but that didn’t help it much. Had some religious undertones that I don’t know I enjoyed. Liked watching an Ancient Greece/mythology movie that isn’t your average swords and sandals adventure, but it’s kinda bland. Visuals were hit or miss; some miniatures and sets were adorable, but most of the movie just looks cheap. Probably won’t remember watching this one in a week.

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    ★½

    There’s nothing left to say about these films. This one is the worst of the trilogy, but I still can’t hate it. The dialogue is awkward, the performances are stunted, the environments all look like CG plastic, the plot is impossible to follow, etc, but I still enjoy Clones. It’s not nearly as good as Ep. 3 (even though that one isn’t great either), and it's not as fun or nostalgic as Ep. 1, but I don’t think I’ll ever…
