Won’t You Be My Neighbor? movie review

Director: Morgan Neville 
Plot: A documentary on the life and times of Fred Rogers, creator and star of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
“The greatest thing that we can do is to help somebody know that they're loved and capable of loving.”
Review:
I’m going to keep this review short and simple as I find that I have nothing much to say. Won’t You Be My Neighbour? is an extremely well-made documentary that explores every facet of the life of probably the nicest guy that ever lived. His guiding philosophy in life was that he believed that there is an inner potential in every child, that everyone, regardless of their background and appearance, can realize that potential and do good in the world. Mister Rogers also truly believed that instead of facing negativity head-on with aggression and provocation, we should all learn to forgive, embrace and love each other. Now, ain’t that some great philosophies to live by? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Morgan Neville did a bang-up job at delving into the personality and philosophy of Fred Rogers. Comprising of archival footage and present-day interviews, the documentary paints a fairly complex picture of a man with the purest of intentions and the softest of manners. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s also not afraid at covering some of the low moments in his life — the criticisms from his detractors, his insecurities and doubts about the future and what he’s trying to accomplish, etc. Yet, this is a man that, despite all odds, managed to persist through the circumstances to deliver his messages in the most respectable ways possible. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In these unstable and divisive climates that we live in, we all desperately need someone like Fred Rogers to guide us through, to help us be more empathetic, and to make us see the good in not just ourselves, but also the world. There is no one in the history of the world that’s quite like him, and I’m afraid that there’s not going to be anyone else like him in the future. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Equalizer 2 quick movie review

To say that The Equalizer 2 was a disappointment would be an understatement. With an extremely disjointed narrative and a predictable plot, it’s severely lacking in the story department; however, Denzel Washington keeps this lackluster sequel engaging enough to overcome its flaws.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Antoine Fuqua’s direction isn’t the problem here; he tried his best (and succeeded) at directing the action with flair and style. It’s the screenplay that really bogs this movie down.

Sorry to Bother You movie review

Director: Boots Riley
Cast: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Jermaine Fowler, Omari Hardwick, Terry Crews, Danny Glover, Steven Yeun, David Cross and Armie Hammer
Plot: Nope! I’m not even gonna attempt to give a plot description.
“Welcome, Cassius Green. I hope you have not masturbated today.”
Review:
To even begin to describe the rambunctious and unconventional “Sorry to Bother You” would be an entirely futile endeavor. It’s a film that defies categorization, one that doesn’t want to get pigeonholed to a single definite genre, and one that will certainly stir polarization among audiences.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sorry to Bother You is an unconventional film. You’ve heard that saying about a lot of indie films over the years from many critics, and, while some of them are kinda inflated, this is none the more true and apt for Sorry to Bother You. It transcends traditional filmmaking boundaries, throwing conventions and norms out the window in favor of an idiosyncratic voice from a first-time director with much to say.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Boots Riley, a rapper turned director, is on double-duty here, writing the screenplay and handling directorial duties. He is throwing everything including the kitchen sink onto the screen, yet amidst all the chaos, weirdness and confusion, he’s still able to bring enough focus to the characters and the themes it’s imparting. It’s also a film that tinkers with narrative cohesion to the point of non-existence, yet once again, he can still build the traditional three-act structure out of the incoherence.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The film utilizes extremely dark humor to its advantage, adding levity to scenes that would be considered dark or horrifying when taken out of context. By using humor, Boots Riley invites us to laugh at some of the more absurd things in life while also challenging us to contemplate about them.

Skyscraper movie review

Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Roland Møller, Pablo Schreiber and Hannah Quinlivan
Plot: When the world’s tallest building is hijacked and set ablaze by a group of mercenaries, It’s up to a security assessor to rescue his family trapped in the burning building and stop the bad guys.
Review:
If the plot description I just gave you sounds eerily familiar, that’s because it’s the exact same premise as the seminal action classic, Die Hard. I’m not the first one to make this observation, and I certainly won’t be the last. Now, before any of you out there say that claiming Skyscraper to be a Die Hard clone is such an unoriginal thought, there’s a reason for people to make that statement. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Beat for beat, Skyscraper copies everything from Die Hard; from the hijacking to the family member(s) in peril and even down to the law enforcement on the ground, it literally is Die Hard set in Hong Kong. It’s so abhorrent that no one, in the process of making this movie, noticed the striking similarities, or were they too well-paid to even care?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Setting that plagiarism aside, Skyscraper is a perfectly watchable action vehicle starring The Rock that will make you temporarily forget all of life’s worries for 100 minutes. After that, any memory you had of the plot or the movie itself will instantly evaporate from your mind as soon as you leave the theater.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dwayne Johnson is certainly in his wheelhouse with Skyscraper, and his performance was decent enough to kind of make you look past the typecasting of his role. He still gives it his all, even though the screenplay underserves him. Neve Campbell actually gave the better performance and her character wasn’t made out to be another damsel in distress. Hers was probably the only good character in the entire movie, with the rest of the characters being token caricatures that you’ve seen in other similar movies before.

Ant-Man and the Wasp movie review

Director: Peyton Reed
Cast: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Hannah John-Kamen, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Randall Park and Michael Douglas
Plot: After returning from the quantum realm unharmed, Scott helps Hank and Hope to rescue Janet from that place. Meanwhile, a villain by the name of Ghost wants to steal Pym’s tech for her personal gain.
Review:
2015’s Ant-Man was a huge blast, considering its production woes. So, it would be crazy if Marvel Studios didn’t green-light a sequel immediately following its breakout success. Well, 3 years later, here we are now, being granted a sequel to one of the most entertaining and most creative entries in the MCU; and, after the depressing resolution to Avengers: Infinity War, it seems like fans of the MCU really need a palate cleanser to lift their spirits and hopefully tide them over till the next Avengers. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So, how was Ant-Man and the Wasp? If we’re going by sheer entertainment value alone, then this movie’s great! It’s certainly entertaining, what with all the cool action sequences that utilize the titular heroes’ abilities to full creative effect, alongside with oodles of laughs and witty banters to boot. Narratively speaking though, it’s a remarkable step down from its predecessor.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The first Ant-Man had a more focused narrative that develops our main hero, Scott Lang, into a fully-realized character, while also providing a high-stakes story with a suitably fine villain with clear motives. However, for Ant-Man and the Wasp, they tried to juggle three main storylines and blend them all together into a cohesive whole, but the end result left something to be desired. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What tanked this story for me was its weird decision to have two main antagonists yet not establish any sort of working relationship between them. This actually made one of them highly disposable and honestly, if that character was cut out of the movie, it wouldn’t make much of a difference anyway.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado quick movie review

While it had quite the strong start, Sicario: Day of the Soldado doesn’t quite justify its existence and eventually fizzles out at the end. This movie feels more like a setup to a promising sequel that we may or may not get.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In spite of this, Benicio del Toro gives a fierce performance as the titular sicario, infusing the film with gravitas; and, he also acts as the muddled moral center of the story. On the other hand, Josh Brolin’s performance was just full of dark and morally questionable moments.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Day of the Soldado isn’t quite as good as its predecessor, but its darker story and intense themes made it an interesting watch.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom quick movie review

Despite a great performance from Chris Pratt and some admittedly dumb yet entertaining sequences, the latest entry in this once-revolutionary series has gotten too stale for its own good, with countless “jumping-the-shark” moments and an idiotic screenplay that underserved the talents of its cast and its director. I feel bad for J.A. Bayona.

Incredibles 2 movie review

Director: Brad Bird
Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Brad Bird and Jonathan Banks
Plot: In an effort to re-legalize superheroes, Elastigirl is tasked with regaining the public’s trust. Meanwhile, her husband is left to take care of the kids.
“Done properly, parenting is a heroic act... done properly.”
Review:
14 years. It’s been 14 goddamn years since the first ever Incredibles was released into the world, effectively cementing Pixar as the dominant (and the best) animation production company in Hollywood. Now, the old team is back once again for another romp in that vibrant superhero world that Pixar has created all those years ago; and, it’s still just as, for lack of a better word, as INCREDIBLE as the first time around.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Outside of the Toy Story series, Pixar hasn’t exactly had the best track record for producing worthy sequels to the originals. The problem with this is Pixar has always chosen to grant sequels to films that don’t even need one in the first place, such as in the case with Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. For Finding Nemo, it was already a perfect stand-alone story about grief and what’s it like to be a family; yet, they went ahead with Finding Dory, a perfectly decent film that pales heavily in comparison with its predecessor. On the other hand, Monsters Inc. does deserve one, but they chose to make a prequel about how Sully and Mike met. As for Cars, that franchise only exists to make money, so the less said about that, the better.

Hereditary movie review

Director: Ari Aster
Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro and Ann Dowd
Plot: It’s best to go in blind
“Don’t you ever raise your voice at me! I am your mother!”
Review:
A24, the modern purveyor of arthouse horror. It all started with 2016’s The Witch (or The VVitch, if you wanna call it that), a deeply unsettling horror that explores the turmoils of religious isolation; then 2017’s It Comes at Night, which was comparably weaker, but still an effective film when it comes to building tension. Then, during that same year, they’ve also released Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Killing of a Sacred Deer, a highly disturbing film that will rattle anyone down to the core. Now, A24 has graced us with Hereditary, another extremely nerve-wracking, tension-filled horror film.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s a film that is hard to categorize or define in one absolute, concrete way because the story operates on so many different levels. It’s that sort of story where you can interpret it in one viewpoint on first viewing, but will shift it the next time you watch the film. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A film this complex and intricate in its storytelling and filmmaking will prove to be a daunting task to even the most seasoned filmmaker, let alone a first-time director; thus, it makes Ari Aster’s feat all the more astonishing. Aster has directed a few short films before making his feature-length debut, and you can kinda say he’s pretty new to this filmmaking game. Yet, the level of ingenuity and competency on display here is evocative of an experienced filmmaker.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Aster has crafted a truly unsettling horror film by exploiting the content curve to build momentum and tension. He knows which scenes to fixate on long enough or which to show briefly to achieve the maximum impact and horror. The horror is then further accentuated by the nerve-wracking sound design and the brilliantly tight editing, which goes to show how well exploited the content curve was for Hereditary.

Ocean’s 8 movie review

Director: Gary Ross
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Paling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter, Richard Armitage and James Corden
Plot: Out of jail and on parole, Debbie Ocean, sister of Danny Ocean, forms a team of women to rob the Met Gala.
“We will not be the prime suspects.”
Review:
Steven Soderbergh’s “Ocean’s Eleven” was a delight. It featured an award-winning cast, interesting characters, a fun, intricate heist, and great twists and turns. The sequels, on the other hand, paled in comparison, especially Twelve. So, how was Ocean’s 8 when compared to the original trilogy? Not that great, to be honest.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ocean’s 8 is, by no means, a terrible film; in fact, it’s well-directed, extremely well-acted and well-crafted enough to make it a fun time at the theaters. The main problem with Ocean’s 8 was that it’s basically a beat-for-beat copy of Ocean’s Eleven, right down from the stylish and aesthetic flourishes to the main plot of the story.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Gary Ross, of Seabiscuit and The Hunger Games fame, took over the reins from Steven Soderbergh, essentially replicating Soderbergh’s style to make this entry fit in with the rest of the series. Now, it’s quite a tricky situation to tackle: do you make your spinoff/sequel/whatever in the same vein and style as the originals or do you implement your own unique voice to the franchise? We’ve seen some great examples and some not-so-great ones to come from this predicament. Take for example, The Last Jedi. That movie divided the Star Wars fanbase because it strayed too far away from the formula. Yet, The Force Awakens adhered too much to the formula that it evoked criticisms too. Anyway, I’m going on a tangent here; what does this have to do with Ocean’s 8?

Pulp Fiction movie review

Director: Quentin Tarantino
Cast: John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Bruce Willis and Ving Rhames
Plot: The lives of a few individuals involved in the criminal underworld are explored in this film.
“I’m American, honey. Our names don’t mean shit.“
Review:
Pulp Fiction is quite an impressive achievement of cinema. When you take into account of the fact that it’s the second film directed by Quentin Tarantino, and yet it features a script that feels like it’s written by a seasoned professional, Pulp Fiction was truly the masterpiece of cinema that everyone’s been claiming it is.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some of the best screenplays in history contain complex characterizations and compellingly written dialogue; if you want some great examples of that, look no further than the screenplays for The Social Network and Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri. The same goes for Pulp Fiction; while you’re enjoying listening to the amazing, punchy dialogue, you’re also fascinated by the characters, who are painted in a fairly complex manner.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What Pulp Fiction did different than, say, The Social Network, was how it developed its characters and their respective character traits. In a film like The Social Network, we learn more about Mark Zuckerberg and co. through the progression of the story; in Pulp Fiction however, it’s the insignificant and trivial scenes, which don’t contribute much to the overall story, that helps to flesh out each individual characters. Take for example, the scene where Travolta and Sam Jackson are talking about foot massaging. That doesn’t add anything to the story, but it does add a lot to the characters. Tarantino has a knack for exploring characters through vignettes, and Pulp Fiction is the most prime example of this talent of his.

The same goes for Pulp Fiction; while you’re enjoying listening to the amazing, punchy dialogue, you’re also fascinated by the characters, who are painted in a fairly complex manner. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ What Pulp Fiction did different than, say, The Social Network, was how it developed its characters and their respective character traits. In a film like The Social Network, we learn more about Mark Zuckerberg and co. through the progression of the story; in Pulp Fiction however, it’s the insignificant and trivial scenes, which don’t contribute much to the overall story, that helps to flesh out each individual characters. Take for example, the scene where Travolta and Sam Jackson are talking about foot massaging. That doesn’t add anything to the story, but it does add a lot to the characters. Tarantino has a knack for exploring characters through vignettes, and Pulp Fiction is the most prime example of this talent of his. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Continued in comments ⬇️⬇️⬇️
Mulholland Drive Classic Movie Review

Director: David Lynch
Cast: Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, and Justin Theroux
Plot: An aspiring actress goes on a search for clues to uncover the identity of an amnesiac that she found at her home. Together, they venture across sunny L.A. in pursuit of their true selves.
“Silencio”
Review:
David Lynch, perhaps the most iconic purveyor of Surrealist cinema. From movies like Blue Velvet (which I thoroughly enjoyed) to his groundbreaking venture into TV with Twin Peaks, David Lynch has been making his mark in Hollywood for decades, and Mulholland Drive might be his finest work yet.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s a film that might seem straightforward at first, and it will most definitely lull you into a false sense of normalcy. However, just when you think you might get a handle on the film, it pulls the rug right out from under you and goes full on batshit crazy mode. And, by the end of it all, you will be in a catatonic state, trying to gather your thoughts and comprehend what you’ve just seen. That all goes to show how profound David Lynch’s vision and direction for this film was.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
David Lynch has a knack to showcase the seedy underbelly of an otherwise bright, colourful exterior. With Blue Velvet, he showed us that the perfect suburbia is not at all what it seems; with Twin Peaks, he showed that beneath the idyllic small town façade lies an unspeakable horror. Now, with Mulholland Drive, he applied that powerful narrative structure to Tinseltown and the pursuit of fame, fortune and stardom, revealing the dark truth behind turning that fifteen minutes of fame into everlasting stardom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Naomi Watts, in one of her earliest roles, provides a powerhouse performance that will leave you in shock and awe. Meanwhile, she shares a palpable chemistry with her co-star Laura Harring, who also delivers a praise-worthy performance.

Solo: A Star Wars Story movie review

Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Joonas Suotamo, Donald Glover, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Paul Bettany
Plot: The film traces the origins of the most beloved scoundrel in a galaxy far, far away, how he got entangled in the smuggling business, and how he became the man that he was in the original trilogy.
“Assume everyone will betray you, and you will never be disappointed.”
Review:
Solo: A Star Wars Story is the second film in the Star Wars anthology series following Rogue One, and you guys all know what went on behind the scenes. Lord and Miller, a duo primarily known for fast-paced comedies like the Jump Street series and The Lego Movie, were originally hired to helm this film, but were fired and replaced by Ron Howard, a filmmaker with more misses than hits. So, you’d be forgiven to think that this movie will turn out bad. Fortunately, amidst all its production woes, Solo: A Star Wars Story was still a competently made and undeniably entertaining movie.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before I get into what I didn’t like about Solo: A Star Wars Story, let me just list out the positives. First, the performances in here weren’t bad across the board. Alden Ehrenreich did a relatively good job as Han Solo, capturing the essence of the character but at the same time not delivering more or even expanding on him either. Emilia Clarke was also fine, and she had great chemistry with Alden Ehrenreich. Woody Harrelson, on the other hand, was passable; it’s not entirely his fault though as his character was forgettable and almost always fell into the background in every scene.

Deadpool 2 movie review

Director: David Leitch
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller and Brianna Hildebrand
Plot: Deadpool has to protect a young mutant kid from the time-travelling mutant, Cable.
“Doing the right thing is messy. You want to fight for what’s right, sometimes you have to fight dirty.”
Review: 
After the massive success of the first Deadpool, fans of the foul-mouthed mercenary, including myself, were hungry for the next installment. Deadpool 2 has all the ingredients it needs for a great movie, yet the finished product ended up being overwhelming and underwhelming at the same time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Employing the same writing team and also not having to deal with an origin story, Deadpool 2 could have been just as great as its predecessor. Alas, the curse of the comedy sequels struck this movie as hard as hitting a Vibranium shield with Mjolnir. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As with any other comedy sequels, Deadpool 2 tries so hard to recapture what worked with the first movie by rehashing basically the same jokes and essentially the same plot points. While there’s certainly enjoyment and laughter to be found here, Deadpool 2 did give me the feeling that I have seen this movie before, only it was done better previously.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
That’s not to say the movie was flat out terrible; it’s actually pretty decent, but when you compare it with the first Deadpool, it’s certainly not as great. There are still some things to like about Deadpool 2, and it’s mainly due to the performances and the action.

Worst Films of 2017

5. Amityville: The Awakening
A movie so unbelievably bad that it got pushed back multiple times, only for it to end up having a VOD release 2 years after its intended release date. Yeah, the latest Amityville is another listless horror movie that has virtually no redeemable qualities whatsoever. The performances were below average, the scares were non-existent and the story is as bland as it gets. Amityville: The Awakening is, for me, the second worst horror film of 2017, even beating out huge stinkers like The Bye Bye Man and Wish Upon.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4. Transformers: The Last Knight
After botching the chance to reinvigorate an already stagnating franchise with Age of Extinction, Michael Bay once again delivers more of the same, clichéd stuff with The Last Knight. All the flaws about the previous four films (well, Dark of the Moon ain’t half bad) were still evident in The Last Knight: annoying characters, tasteless and borderline offensive humor, listless action sequences, indistinguishable robot designs and an overlong runtime. However, with The Last Knight, there was an additional flaw that wasn’t present in the previous movies: constantly changing aspect ratios; in just barely one second it goes from widescreen to the IMAX format. Imagine watching the black bars constantly changing sizes, and just imagine how annoying that would be. If you thought the previous four movies weren’t bad enough, try this one on for size.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
3. The Emoji Movie
LOOK! THEY MADE POOP JOKES! (LOLZ!)
LOOK! CANDY CRUSH! JUST DANCE! (LOLZ!)
LOOK! YOUTUBE! DROPBOX! (LOLZ!)
LOOK! FORCED FEMINIST MESSAGE WITHOUT CONTEXT! (LOLZ!)
LOOK! MORE “MEH” JOKES! (LOLZ!)
LOOK! HI-5 IS DOING SILLY THINGS (LOLZ!)
(If what I just said annoyed you, try watching The Emoji Movie.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2. Fifty Shades Darker
Can I just not talk about this series anymore? I’m pretty much out of things to say about it, plus you guys get the gist of everything that is wrong with these “films”.
