Has anyone seen - or are you going to see - the new Ghostbusters movie?

I am not going to see it, but I am curious.

I hear Ghost Busters very not funny and it entirely plays to the (bad) stereotypes/archetypes of female comedy characters and for a film that was talked about as if it was groundbreakingly feminist, that's super poor writing to create characters like that. It's value has nothing to do with its comparison to the original so much as its just a bad film. I thought it would have been good but turns out Melissa McCarthy just isn't a good film maker. Oh well

I just saw Secret Life of Pets. 6.5/10. Your kids would like it, it's got some funny and some cute parts, but for me it was just a tad too much.

Agreed.

I saw this, the Witch, and The 33 last time I went to visit my girlfriend. The Witch I'd give like 1/10 and The 33 was pretty good I thought so I'd give it like 7.5/10

Forsaken - 7/10 - Decent western starring both Kiefer and Donald Sutherland as father and son who live in a town that's being terrorized by a gang who's mission is to take all of the farmland, whether legally or by force.
The acting was stellar on everyone's part, and the cinematography was beautiful, but I feel it could have used some more character development. The only characters I really cared about were Kiefer and Donald's, and maybe Demi Moore's, but all of the other characters felt like they were there just to advance the plot and/or cause dilemmas.
Overall I would say it was short but sweet (only about 85 minutes). It definitely had its moments, and it touched on themes like redemption and religion, but it didn't feel fully fleshed out to me. Then again, I don't usually watch westerns :p But if you're a fan of the genre, I'd give this one a go.

Suicide Squad - 7.5/10
Harley is a sex symbol. Blah. But Margot Robbie plays her personality well. Joker is good but the grill is distracting. The smile tattoo is an interesting addition. Jared Leto plays him well though. Deadshot was nearly perfect. Diablo was written well. Croc was written well. The Enchantress has become one of my favorite villains. The movie couldve been a lot better. Marvel blows DC out of the water with their movies because they write their characters closer to the comics. DC tends to take their characters out of character if that makes sense. I can see why people disliked the movie. But i honestly thought it was mostly well written and well acted. I liked it.

Knock Knock - 6/10 - I'll start by saying this is one of the most bizarre movies I've ever seen. It's like a really weird blend of horror and comedy, but at the same time it's not exactly either of those genres.
Directed by Eli Roth, this movie is about a man named Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves), an architect who lets a couple of girls into his house during a rainstorm while his wife and kids are on a weekend getaway. He is then seduced, and later taken hostage by them in his own home.
Both the acting and the dialogue, from a critical standpoint, are all over the place. In the case of this movie, however, they come off as very realistic considering the situation.
Spoiler: Click here to toggle spoiler

The biggest example of this would be the "game show" scene.


The movie does feel a bit too stretched out at times, like the story being told shouldn't take this long to tell, but the writers just wanted to see how far and insane they could take it. As bizarre as this movie is, the scariest thing about it is that given the right circumstances, it could happen in real life.
Is this movie entertaining? Yes, but in the most perverted way possible, like it's not that great, but you just can't look away. Would I watch it again? Maybe. Would I recommend it? If you like female nudity, movies that heavily involve social media, and/or Keanu Reeves, then yes. Otherwise, you're better off looking somewhere else.

Batbruh v Superwoot: Dawn of Justice Ultimate Edition - 7.75/10
This is the "extended edition" with 30-ish minutes more than the theatrical release, the majority of which fill out the beginnings and middle of the story. As far as what seemed 'new' to me, the extra footage helps explain stuff a little more, like why Diana was in the gallery looking at Alexander's sword, and also shows a little more of Alfred, plus goes more in depth in to Lex Luthor's machinations to rile Bruce Wayne and Metropolis in general. If you liked the movie and plan to own it, buy this version.

Batman: The Killing Joke - 7/10
Overall this was entertaining, but when the film ended and the credits rolled I was a little bit stunned and unsure of what to think--not because of shock or deep storytelling but because of weird pacing and a lot of unexpected, out-of-character actions for Batlad. I would recommend this flick to Batman fans, especially if they enjoy the 90's animated series and the other semi-recent animated films that are dark in tone, but dude seriously this film is odd and the very last conversation between Batbat and Jokey will probably make you go "wat." like it did me.

X-Men: Apocalypse - 5.5/10
This was bad. Barely-better-than-Xmen-3-bad. Apocalypse is supposed to be mysterious, menacing and legendary in power but he just comes off as unmotivated and over-exaggerated here. I really like the way these chaps play younger Xavier and Magneto but the bad writing & bad special effects dominate the viewing experience here. J-Law's Mystique is petulant and uninteresting here, we finally get to see Psylocke on screen but she sucks and is played by Olivia Munn (these two facts are not mutually exclusive), and the young version of Storm is terrible. Sansa Stark's Jean Grey is about on par with Famke Janssen's in that she's good as long as she isn't trying to do emotional dialog. Young Nightcrawler and young Havok are alright, and young Cyclops was surprisingly, thoroughly decent, considering that I abhor his character. Anyway, to shorten a review that's already too long, I'll say the story itself was cool but the dialog was bad and the effects were bad and the fight scenes were bad and really the only parts of the film that work were when the director was poking fun at his own mediocre filmography (like when some of the young'uns walk out of Return of the Jedi and Jean Grey says, "the third one is always the worst.")
Spoiler: Click here to toggle spoiler

If I haven't convinced you yet, then let me also mention that this movie has a brief scene with Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine, or rather Weapon X, and it is the worst he has ever been in any of the X things, including movies 2 and 3. He doesn't even have any lines, just terrible action scenes with bad CGI.

I just watched all of Tarantino's movies over the last two weeks. First of all, don't ever do that to yourself. Here's my rank order of movies I enjoyed most to least and then movies I think were actually best to worst:

1. Jackie Brown
2. Hateful Eight
3. Kill Bill
4. Deathproof
5. Pulp Fiction
6. Reservoir Dogs
7. Inglorious Bastards
8. Django Unchained

1. Hateful Eight
2.Reservoir Dogs
3. Jackie Brown
4. Death Proof
5. Kill Bill
6. Pulp Fiction
7. Django Unchained
8. Inglorious Bastards


I totally know that neither of those lists are what most people would say, but here's what I think. Django is super boring. It has cool scenes here and there but the long drawn out ones just don't entertain me like they do in his other films. Jackie Brown is fantastic, because you don't have to go into it knowing a single thing about Tarantino's style to have that "I have no damn clue what is going to happen next" feeling he is famous for. Plus it has an extremely strong female lead and not in the corny way but in the she's a badass who comes up with an entire scheme on her own and needs no man to save her ass in the end. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir dogs are absolutely classics and I respect that but I think for both of them I didn't understand any of what made them so great until they were already over. Which is not a bad thing, but doesn't help in the entertainment value department for me. Inglorious bastards is extra good if you're Jewish, cuz damn do you hate Nazis, but even so the film falls for me because it builds up all these awesome characters in the beginning and then forgets about them all basically after the two scenes they're in (I want more Bear Jew). Deathproof is probably tied for least known with Jackie Brown, but its honestly a very very well done film. It makes you absolutely hate the protagonist, while giving you a thoroughly satisfying resolution appropriate only for the sort of film Tarantino produces. You'd have to really see it to get what I mean there. Kill Bill is just all around a good time. Dope action, a bit corny but in the good way, and a pretty compelling story. Doesn't have the same feeling as other Tarantino films prior in terms of non-linear story telling (even though it is non-linear), but it does have his signature over the top gore. The anime is a solid touch too. And lastly, I truly think The Hateful Eight is his best film yet. It nails down the sense of mystery and suspense that he has made a life out of creating and does not for a single moment allow you to figure out anything that is going on. I walked out of the theater the first time I saw it and said to my brother this movie is winning best score, and I was absolutely right.

That's what I gotta say about that. I think they're all fantastic films, and the difference between each ranking is marginal and honestly if you asked me again tomorrow I'd probably arrange them differently

Requiem for a Dream - 9/10 - Such a tragic masterpiece of a movie. I promise you WILL be disturbed and depressed by the end of it. This movie follows the lives of four drug addicts, each with their own goals and aspirations, but who keep being set back by their addictions.
I don't wanna talk too much about the movie, since going into it without prior knowledge is the best way to see it, but I will say the acting and cinematography are spot on flawless.

Tarantino is a god thats all i have to say about that. Ironically the last movie ive watched was on he's in but doesnt direct.
From Dusk til Dawn - 6.5/10
Clooney and Tarantino do a great job and most of the supporting actors are great except for the god damn asian kid eho cant act for shit. I dont like the fact that the movie changed to basically a completely different movie in the middle but it makes sense with the title but i wasnt reallye expecting it so i was just like wtf? Why? Lol. Otherwise its pretty good but Clooneys acting definitely carries the latter half of the movie and his character development is great.

Tarantino is incredible even in movies that are not his.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - 6/10 - Being the huge Harry Potter fan that I am, this movie didn't recapture the magic of the original series for me, and that was disappointing. There's too many subplots going on, and I didn't care about most of the characters (I only really cared about Newt and Jacob).

The acting was pretty good, especially Eddie Redmayne and Dan Fogler, though Eddie Redmayne tended to slur a lot of his dialogue, making it hard to understand. Still, I loved the scenes where he's working with his magical creatures. You could really feel the connection between Newt and his "Fantastic Beasts". Dan Fogler was amazing comic relief, and he had to have been the most relatable character of all.

I thought there was a huge pacing issue jumping from subplot to subplot, and when they all eventually came together, it felt really forced. I don't wanna spoil it, but I thought the ending was pretty weak. So while the movie does have some good moments, it's not nearly as good as Harry Potter. Hopefully things improve in the next four movies, since I love the Wizarding World!!!
