Scream 2022 was not a memorable addition to the franchise, nor was it a necessary one. I think the final movie was made in an attempt to redeem itself from the lackluster reception of Scream 4 in 2011 but Scream 4 was already a solid ending. Needless to say, I’m a big fan of the original trilogy but this one just wasn’t up to par.
All in all, Greed was a good movie. It had a strong cast, good chemistry, excellent cinematography (you could really feel the heat and humidity from across the screen). Kudos to writer director Yam Laranas, who incorporated his signature style of filmmaking to deliver another one of his masterpieces . Enough good girl roles for Nadine, please. I believe these types of materials are where the next chapter of career should be.
All in all, there was a lot of swashbuckling action, a great script slapstick and physical comedy that kept viewers interested. Even the boss fights were very creative. Visually, it was impressive. When combined with a great cast, it was epic.
By its end, I was not sure if The Bubble was a good movie or not. There were funny parts and there were scenes that didn’t quite hit their mark. I actually asked myself why I opted to watch this instead of The Adam Project. Let’s just say that The Bubble requires an acquired taste, but to its credit, it also challenges us moviegoers to discern the types of movies that we consume. Nah, let’s just go with the first one.
Now that the cat is finally out of the bag, The Amazing Spider-man star Andrew Garfield may have unwittingly delivered another fan service tidbit of information to his fans.
I’ve seen plenty of disaster movies but almost none where I was rooting for the demise of humankind. The people in the movie deserved it, and if life imitated art in this scenario, it makes me think that maybe we deserve it too.
All in all, Spider-man: No Way Home had a great script, excellent fight scenes, and a neat set up for the MCU and the Spiderverse. It will make you feel sentimental about the web slinger’s on screen journey and leave you hopeful for the infinite possibilities that the franchise holds. Also, it hints at many set ups for Disney Plus+ streaming series.
While watching The Lord of the Rings was an exciting experience the first time around, it has a different impact when you are rewatching it after some time. One thing remains consistent. Its quality. It’s worth revisiting each time.
All in all, the Twilight franchise was not the best book to movie adaptations out there. At some point, you would want to hit your head on a wall for even bothering to get yourself roped into watching of the movies but they were not completely horrible. They had their moments when they made sense. They were entertaining and good for a couple of laughs. It just felt like I was watching a very long Dulcolax (laxative) commercial.
All in all, The Whole Truth was a borefest that took pride in ripping off classic horror classics and made no apologies for being a copycat. It wasn’t even flattering to the original material. In all fairness, filmmakers tried to do their best. Unfortunately, the film already sank before it could start floating because everything about it was so subpar it was ridiculous.
