#GS Movie Review: Mission Impossible: Fallout ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 1/2
#Consensus "While its third act makes it lose its balance due to an overabundance of plot-twists and some narrative shortcomings, Fallout is easily the most exciting action movie to be released this year.
Thanks to a committed lead, jaw-dropping production values and genuinely exhilarating action sequences; the latest Mission Impossible is an ummissable summer blockbuster." #Highlights (👍) + Tom Cruise's still got it 💪 + Cinematography, music and sound design are as impressive as they are polished.
+ Action sequences are well-directed and pure awesomeness.
+ Lots of surprises for long-time fans of the series.
+ Solid and mostly compelling script.
#Downsides (👎) - Underdeveloped supporting cast.
- Too many twists and turns that worsen as the 3rd act kicks into gear.
- Lenght/runtime is a slight nuisance.
#Warnings (⚠️) * Highly reccomendable to experience the film in IMAX format. More expensive for sure, but worth it without a doubt.

#GS Movie Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus " Despite a handful of bland characters and some plot points walking a very thin line between gleefully ridiculous and eye-rollingly over-the-top, Fallen Kingdom has earned its spot as the best Jurassic Park sequel. Thanks to a compelling mixture of thought-provoking themes/tension/humor, as well as visual elegance that rivals the original (and 2 new characters that beg to be further fleshed out in the sequel), J. A Bayona's latest is a solid summer blockbuster that's worth experiencing.
#Highlights (👍🏾) + The cinematography is breath-taking and a joy to behold. + Pratt and Dallas-Howard's chemistry remains enjoyable and fun. + Daniela Pineda (and Justice Smith to a certain degree) are a welcome addition to the cast. + Visual effects are solid and at times impressive. + Score and overall production design is on point.
#Downsides (👎🏾) - The secondary plot line in the movie feels vaguely illogical/absurd and not properly explored. - Pratt and Dallas Howard's character arc is identical to the one in the previous films. - The most interesting and compelling theme the movie explores doesn't get the screentime or importance it deserves.
#Warnings (⚠️) * Fallen Kingdom is a Passable film. While you won't waste your time and money watching it, not seeing it won't be the end of the world.

#GS Movie Review: The Incredibles 2 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus : "Featuring some of the most imaginative action setpieces ever in an animated feature, phenomenal voice acting and an effective mix of humor, heart and even mystery; The Incredibles 2 delivers in spades after a 14 year wait since the last installment. While it's undoubtedly bigger in scope, Brad Bird's latest never forgets what made the original work and continously goes out of its way to effectively move the plot forward in an equally exciting and effective way. Pixar once again topping itself in terms of animation and attention to detail is a much welcome icing on the cake." #Highlights (👍🏾)
+ Voice acting is perfect across the board. + Animation is by far the best Pixar has ever done. + Great variety and quality in action sequences throughout. + Story delivers plenty of fun and insight into most of the movies characters. + Brisk pacing that'll get a hold of your attention all the way to the end.
- Middle-chapter in a trilogy feeling.
* With the ammount of new characters introduced and the potential to expand this universe even more due to the way the movie ends, prepare for The Incredibles 3... in 2025 if we're lucky.

#GS Movie Review: Deadpool 2 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus : "While it's R-rated nature may not be everyone's cup of tea, Deadpool 2 manages to surpass its predecessor in every single way. From its surprisingly focused and strong narrative, non-stop laughs, a fantastic performance by Ryan Reynolds, gorgeously choreographed action sequences... the list goes on and on. Do yourself a favor and enjoy the crap out of this bad boy." #Highlights (👍)
+ David Leitch and company are at the top of their game.
+ A total riot. Laughing is guaranteed from beginning to end.
+ Stylish and exhilarating action sequences.
+ Easter eggs, references and overall humor is as meta and enjoyable as it gets.
+ The script is tight and the message is delivered in an effective, satisfying manner.
+ Fantastic soundtrack.
#Downsides (👎) - Visual effects are rarely but ocassionally uneven in quality.
- Secondary/side characters are laughably sidelined and underdeveloped.
#Warnings (⚠️) * This is an R-Rated gore fest. Limbs flying around, swear words at every turn... you get the idea. Implied suicide/suicidal thoughts are also worth noting. I strongly discourage anyone younger than 17 from seeing this film.

#GS Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story ⭐⭐⭐ 1/2
#Consensus : "While it certainly delivers when it comes to charm, humor and visual flair; Solo is an ultimately skippable and somewhat unexciting Story in the Star Wars canon. It's a shame, given that Ehrenreich's performance is a treat and the production values are solid. Still, these are all dumbed down due to an array of uncompelling characters, and a weak, cliched script." #Highlights (👍)
+ Alden Ehrenreich is a fantastic, young Han Solo.
+ The cinematography and score are both on point.
+ Action is well shot and entertaining.
+ Plenty of humor, heart and charm to go around.
- Weak characters.
- Script is dissapointing overall but mediocre at worst.
- Only long-time fans or connoisseur's of the series will be able to truly enjoy this story, unlike Rogue One.
If you don't consider yourself a true Star Wars fan, chances are you will be bored or just mildly entertained by Solo. Even those familiar with the previous films will most likely be dissapointed with it and be left wanting for more.

#GS Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus : "Audacious in its scale as well as groundbreaking in the quality (and quantity) of its action sequences, the MCU's latest overcomes its overabundance of characters problems thanks to the commitment and 10 years of movies to back up its narrative. An unfogettable movie-going experience that'll have its long-time fans on the edge of their seats throughout and casual ones expertly entertained." #Highlights (👍)
+ A terrifically portrayed and genuinely intimidating villain, courtesy of Josh Brolin.
+ Solid performances all across the board (especially from Robert Downey Jr, Zoë Saldana and Chris Hemsworth).
+ A surprising ammount of action sequences that are as stunning to behold as they are a thrill to sit through.
+ Tons of moments and interactions that'll get fans to gasp, smile and even cry like never before.
+ Perfect pacing, score and visual effects.
- Yeah.... nope.

#GS Movie Review: Love, Simon ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus : "Heart-warming, relatable and packing an ass-load of genuine laughs and feels; Love, Simon is a groundbreaking comedy/drama that delivers a once in a lifetime type of experience for members of the LGBT community, as well as an engrossing and extremely pleasant experience for everyone else. A catchy soundtrack, fantastic performances across the board and an inspiring and hopeful atmosphere help elevate the film sky-high, where it belongs. Lovely, truly." #Highlights (👍) + A solid script that'll consistently tug at the heartstrings, bring tears to your eyes and a smile to your face. + A varied and fantastic soundtrack that's worth listening to on repeat.
+ Strong performances from an endearing lead, likeable secondary characters and a hilarious Drama teacher.
+ A delighful and inspiring portrayal of LGBT chacracter and relationships.
* This movie is too good to be true. It may give you diabetes based on how seet it is alone.

#GS Movie Review: A Quiet Place ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 1/2
#Consensus : "Nail-bitting, toe-clenching and delightfully suspenseful; A Quiet Place is a fantastic thriller that stumbles as it approaches its conclusion, but manages to land gracefully and leave a lingering sting thanks to a jaw-dropping performance by Emily Blunt, a strong cast to back her up, and an overall well crafted effort by lead actor and promising director John Krasinski." #Highlights (👍)
+ Emily Blunt's performance is unbelievably good.
+ Production values (Score, Direction and Visual Effects) are excellent.
+ Superb sound design.
+ A+ in Atmosphere + An unmissable thriller/horror film with an intriguing premise that's successfully explored.
#Downsides (👎) - Delivers on the first and second act, but the 3rd one feels unnecesarily long.
#Warnings (⚠️) * Blood, gore and violence througout. I wouldn't take my kids if I were you.

#GS Movie Review: Ready Player One ⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus "Spielberg's latest has the inventiveness, nostalgia and visuals to blow your brains away with ease. While it's a shame the ideas and narrative opportunities presented aren't properly explored, Ready Player One has enough visual panache, easter eggs and mind-blowingly awesome setpieces to keep your attention, up until the credits roll." #Highlights (👍) + The 3 main action setpieces are all as impressive as they are creative (not to mention breath-takingly fun).
+ The soundtrack and score are both top notch. + Solid performances across the board.
+ The quality of the visual effects alone are enough to justify watching the film.
#Downsides (👎) - Promising narrative that never reaches its true potential.
- Serviceable, but ultimately weak characters.
- The script is occassionally cringe-worthy/overtly-dramatic.
* Watching this movie on 3D format is highly reccomended.

#GS Movie Review: Tomb Raider (2018) ⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus : "While a mediocre script and a bland, disposable mix of secondary characters take the experience dangerously close to a shipwreck; Alicia Vikander's strong performance and physicality, along with a handful of exciting setpieces help the movie stay afloat." #Highlights (👍)
+ Alicia Vikander IS Lara Croft.
+ The 2nd and 3rd act action sequences are as exciting as can be.
+ Solid visual effects.
- Bland, paper thin supporting characters.
- Clichéd and offensively predictable script.
* The "Videogame Movie Adaptation Curse" is still a thing, but Tomb Raider is undoubtedly entertaining and a somewhat pleasant diversion.

#GS Movie Review: Annihilation ⭐⭐⭐⭐ #Consensus "A hypnotic, delightfully intriguing and hardcore sci-fi experience. While Alex Garland's latest has a demanding finale and an unevenly developed supporting cast, both the director and company still manage to deliver a mesmerizing, unique and strongly atmospheric gem that's worth getting lost into (somewhat literally). #Highlights (👍)
+ Alex Garland delivers yet another interesting, polished and enjoyable sci-fi film.
+ Portman, Rodriguez, Isaac and the rest of the cast are all on point with their performances.
+ Remarkable visuals and sound design.
+ Portman's & Isaac's screentime together.
+ A+ in atmosphere.
- Tough to follow and slighly jarring 3rd act.
- Supporting cast is strong, promising, but ultimately not present enough to compete with Portman's well-rounded character.
* Available on cinemas only in the US, Canada and China. Everywhere else the film'll be distributed by Netflix.

#GS Movie Review: Black Panther 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 #Consensus "A diamond in the rough that excels at every turn; Marvel's latest is an unmissable, heart-stopping and engrossing thrill ride that never misses a beat. From its must-buy soundtrack, its beautiful visuals, adrenaline-inducing action and a story worth paying thought and attention to, Black Panther is going to be a tough act to follow for the MCU." #Highlights (👍)
+ The movie wears its heart and soul on its sleeve throughout.
+ Insane & genuinely exciting action sequences.
+ Excellent performances from the cast (especially from Boseman, Gurira, Jordan & Serkis).
+ Must-buy soundtrack and captivating score.
+ Wonderful and mesmerizing visuals.
- Come on, seriously?
~ Black Panther is offensively well-made and a true joy to experience. Prepare to have your mind blown.
