    A Quiet Place

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Going into A Quiet Place, I had set my expectations decently high, and it's essentially ticked off all the expectations I had for this movie. Sure, it's not perfect but I loved the subtle world building, the really tense score and great all around performances. But I think the one thing that really stood out is the brisk pace of the movie, I was rarely bored or uninterested with what was happening, I always felt a reason to be completely…

    Tomb Raider

    So I was actually looking forward to Tomb Raider, just from that first trailer, it didn't look great but it did look fun, and that's exactly how the movie turned out. It's not perfect, but I really enjoyed Alicia Vikander specifically, she had the physicality and gave a genuinely good performance too. Some cliche plot twists and narrative turns don't help the movie, but I still had a fun time with Tomb Raider.

    Roman J. Israel, Esq.

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    I wasn't expecting much from Roman J. Israel, Esq, but it was surprisingly effective. One of my new favorite dramatic Denzel Washington performances, and a really good third act makes up for the shaky first act and the slightly better second act, and there is seemingly a conflict of ideals, where the movie can't quite figure out its central message. Colin Farrell and Carmen Ejogo are also good in the movie too, don't sleep on this one, it's good.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Fallen Kingdom is a real mixed bag for me, I loved the action sequences and the SFX were incredible, and there were a lot of thrilling moments, with some semi cheesy plot points and lines of dialogue. But the villains are so awful, Rafe Spall and Toby Jones are hamming it up so much at the end, Ted Levine is just so bad, but the Indoraptor was cool. The script/screenplay is also pretty weak, some baffling character choices occur in the second half. Characterization was fine, better than Jurassic World. I had a lot of fun with Fallen Kingdom but it is very flawed.
