  • Jingle All the Way

    Jingle All the Way

    ★★★

    So dumb, so entertaining. Christmas is here!

  • The Family Man

    The Family Man

    ★★★

    A cute 'christmas carol' with the ever entertaining Nic Cage. Not bad if you'd like a christmas movie that isn't shown on flow tv every year.

  • The Santa Clause

    The Santa Clause

    ★★★

    Just the right amount of stupid. I live for the Neil character.

  • Batman: Assault on Arkham

    Batman: Assault on Arkham

    ★★★

    Quite good. I missed someone to really root for but I never did love the Suicide Squad for the same reason. One of the better dc films.

  • The Tomorrow War

    The Tomorrow War

    ★★★

    This is so much better than it looks at first glance. It's basicly Terminator meets Starship Troopers and I'm kinda into that.
    There are some sucky kliché things in it, and especially the third act is quite forced. A highschool student has to give professional scientists advice for god's sake.

    The monster design is cool, the plot idea is funky and funny even if not that original. The acting is kinda good and I personally liked Chris Pratt more than…

  • Mortal Kombat

    Mortal Kombat

    ★★★

    This is the worst. I also love it.

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★

    It's like Tarantino if he liked punk and Kaiju films over westerns.

    It's pretty, funny, weird and entertaining. It's not deep and it doesn't really touch me at all. It's so much better than all the other DCEU films because it is the product of an actual vision and as long as you commit to the fun this is worth a watch and a rewatch as well. I do with it was half an hour shorter.

  • Spectre

    Spectre

    ★★★

    Daniel Craig = Awesome
    Camera work = Gorgeous
    Themes = Summing up Craigs arc nicely
    Action scenes = Mostly on point
    Plot = Makes no sense whatsoever
    Forgetable? Sadly yes.

    I think I wanted to love this too much and it's not horrible but the entire spectre thing is clumsy and way too hastily introduced. Why introduce the greatest bond villain to date to use him so little?

    Seriously, how does Q unravel the entirety of spectre from a ring?…

  • Van Helsing

    Van Helsing

    ★★★

    This is in the same category as Starship Troopers and The Mummy. A crazy B-movie that takes itself seriously while being objectively bad and yet quite entertaining. I don't know why people seem to agree that the first two ones are fun while Van Helsing is bad.

    I loved the film as a kid and decided yo watch it again, prepared to be let down. I didn't. It's not art and it's certainly not a good movie. It's crazy fun…

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★

    Somehow Rian Johnsons favorite act of subverting expectations in a genre that is always doing just that ended up in something that feels extremely generic.

    Knives out isn't bad but certainly isn't close to what it is made up to be either.

    Also, what the hell happened to Daniel Craigs accent?

  • Thor

    Thor

    ★★★

    While the third act was kinda meh with the destroyer as a really boring 'final boss', the rest of this adventure is fun and slightly underrated.

  • Love, Death & Robots: Lucky 13

    Love, Death & Robots: Lucky 13

    ★★★

    While pretty and entertaining it didn't really touch me or do much other than entertain.
