Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Quite possibly the best Marvel film this year
We didn't expect this movie to be as good as it was. Typically when a movie like this has so much Over-Hype it turns out to be horrible, not here; Thor Ragnarok is absolutely amazing from the beginning to the end.
This movie is action packed and is a movie that will keep you laughing throughout most of it, finally a great film in the year 2017. The graphics and cinematics are perfect and well balanced, the cast couldn't have been better picked; this is a movie that we will watch over and over
American Made (2017)
Yesterday we were decided where to have lunch and we figured why not a movie with our meal, so we headed to our favorite theater without even checking what was playing or when. When we arrived the only film that was playing within the time frame we arrived was "American Made" so we bought the tickets and headed to our seat.
To break it down really short and simple I'd have to say that this is probably one of the best roles played by Tom Cruise, probably his best-acting hands down; this wasn't your typical Tom Cruise at all in which we'd anticipated. The story adapted to film was very nicely done, American Made had a great cast and all of the actors pulled their roles off very well. The cinematics and photography for the film were perfectly on point as we watched closely to see if we could catch little goofs to share but we didn't catch any.
American Made turned out to be much better than we'd expected and its content is a much needed to be viewed by all.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)
no where near the first film
The first Kingsman movie was very entertaining and did very well at comically making fun of spy films why bringing a little more to the table, it was certainly a good film and it gave us such high hopes to see Kingsman 2; though the movie fell short.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) had a lot of potential, it has a great trailer, a nice cast, and the action scenes are really good; the script fell short quick. We watched the screener opening last night and we hadn't heard the theater so quiet in a long time, every now and then you'd hear someone say "this isn't close to the first film"; it was dull. Many times in the movie the actors were standing around in position with no dialogue as if they were waiting to hear the word "cut" as it seemed the splicing in editing film wasn't cut right.
The action scenes really got to me it's as if they took the styling of Iron Man to line up scores and audio, we just couldn't seem to piece together exactly what went wrong but this movie did just go wrong. Now we aren't saying that Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) was a complete disaster as it did have the 2 funny spots and the action scenes were good and almost exact filming scenes spliced to match the first ones, but the reality is the film didn't even come close to comparing to the first film.
2017 has been the worst year for movies in a very long time.
The movie It 2017 remake was an awesome film! Yesterday we headed out to see "It" and everyone in the theater was clapping, the cast was great and the effects were far more superior than the original which made the film better than the original. I've seen many say they were scared as I wondered why were they scared with the original?
Clowns have never freaked me out, the original sort of put a nice dark spin on clowns which I saw to be awesome. It the original was brilliant and in now way is this movie a better film; it's just a perfectly put together remake respecting both films as equal. They did a wonderful job on the remake and I look forward to putting it in our personal film collection. "It 2017" is the 4th good movie to come to the theater in 2017 so far.
Logan Lucky (2017)
very nicely done
Yesterday we were just looking to get out of the house and office to relax, we looked at the movies in the theater and it didn't have much to offer but we decided to give Logan Lucky a shot. At first glance of the trailer we instantly started thinking of films like Talladega Nights, or Joe Dirt, though the film wasn't anything in comparison to them; it was simply a good dark comedy.
When the film started it held our attention from the beginning all the way through, it did have that sinister styled Ocean's Eleven appeal to it but once again it stood out on its own as the cast had sort of that dark, uneducated, funny back story; you'd have to see this film to understand but certainly a fun film to enjoy. Going into the theater not expecting much and leaving giggling as to how well it was put together is a sure win, if you're seeking a good fun film then you should give this one a shot.
Yesterday we had the time to head out and check out the film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) though when purchasing tickets the theater was almost empty, at the same time so was Spiderman Homecoming and all the other big names so we said okay let's go. Upon arriving we did our normal and ordered our food while we researched the feedback on the movie. Valerian was a film that caught my attention from the trailer and from the day I saw the trailer I knew this film was one for me and we were hopeful.
The film started and immediately I started wondering why all the negative talk about this film? Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets movie is the next level 5th Element, it's up there with Avatar; this film has everything for sci-fi fans, and it's equal if not better than Guardians of the Galaxy. Why other than the trailer was there not much of a buzz about this film?
Valerian is a cinematic concept based on the comic from the 60's, and even then this comic didn't have a big following; heck we're comic buffs and hadn't heard of it until now. This film has made us a fan, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) is quite possibly one of the best sci-fi films released in a long time. The story is funny, fun and very adventurous. The cast fit their roles in Valerian so perfect that at times I felt the 5th Element versus Guardians of the Galaxy vibe with a huge chunk of originality on it. The creativity, graphics, effects, and conception when bringing this film to light from the comic must've been quite a choir and you can tell that Luc Besson truly cared about what he was doing with this one.
In short. Graphically stunning! Action Packed through till the end! If you're a sci-fi fan this is one for you, I hope for a sequel and we will be collecting all of the comics that we can find.
The Mummy (2017)
much better than expected
In short, when I saw another Mummy film I instantly cringed. I didn't know at first that it wasn't another remake or another sequel until I had the chance to see the trailer and even then I wasn't sold on this movie. After the release date and all of the reviews went up it just reassured me that this wasn't a film for me though after seeing it, well I see the reviews are wrong once again.
The Mummy (2017) turned out to be a really well put together film, the story was entertaining and entertaining itself. The graphics were awesome and the cast pulled it off very well, yet we did see that Mission Impossible vibe happening in a few (poses by Tom Cruise) shots; we're just started humming the theme song and kept watching. Is The Mummy a Blockbuster? I don't think it is but it was a very entertaining film and we thoroughly enjoyed it, we will buy the DVD when it comes out.
In short, The Mummy (2017) is a good film and we enjoyed it.
Despicable Me 3 (2017)
What can I say that hasn't been said about Despicable Me 3 (2017), oh yeah . It's awesome! Yes, we had the time to check out Despicable Me 3 even after all the negative reviews and we don't agree with any of those reviews; this is the best Despicable Me film yet.
In the first few minutes of the film, I could completely understand why some had that "oh no not again" review going on but apparently they didn't watch it past that point. Despicable Me 3 (2017) just like the first and second were filled with music, dancing, one off's, one-liners, you name it but can you name a blockbuster film that has released in the last 20 years that didn't have these things (other than dancing)? Despicable Me 3 was very entertaining, it was exactly what I expected with a nice kick to it; this film was the better of the three and not once was it any less. So
if you've watched any of the Despicable Me or Minions movies and liked them then there's no reason you won't enjoy this one.
not that bad
We made it out to watch Transformers: The Last Knight yesterday and honestly it was pretty good, though it wasn't one of the best of the Transformer films. When we got to the theater we were quite excited as we're fans of Transformers so we knew it would at least be entertaining and to us, it was, though a few items stuck out to me and it made it hard to watch afterward.
Just as most big blockbuster films they tend to fall short in many areas due to all the hype and marketing, usually a heavily marketed movie tends to show that the movie will be very bad; Transformers: The Last Knight wasn't bad but it did use some tricks from other movies.
Let's give the breakdown. The acting was as it always has been, very well done by all of the cast. As for CGI/Effects, well it's Transformers that's exactly where all the money went, and it was good. The story: well many places in the story they seem to have dropped the ball; it's as if they cut a lot of scenes and forgot to patch the film or it was sloppy scripting though I'm not sure which. Cinematography, I'm quite blown away that the Transformers franchise would do such a thing but they did pull tricks (very noticeable) from "Suicide Squad", and Guardians of the Galaxy"; when these scenes in the movie started to show I almost walked out of the theater.
Movies have certainly run out of using their own ideas and spend more time mimicking other films and honestly, it sickens me to see it, try some originality.
In short, Transformers: The Last Knight is an entertaining film.
Wonder Woman (2017)
Recently we had had the pleasure of checking out Wonder Woman (2017) which I can say from the beginning was fairly entertaining. There is only one Item that I personally didn't like about the movie and that was the theme song and soundtrack but in no way does this reflect on how I feel about the movie itself.
I think for the most part Wonder Woman (2017) was well thought out and put together, the graphics were nicely done, the acting was as you'd expect, and the film as a whole was entertaining. There's nothing good nor bad to say about Wonder Woman (2017), it was the same layout from start to finish as basically every blockbuster film in the last few years. You can literally take this movie and watch Transformers, Ninja Turtles, and many others side by side and see the build up, effects, and all are on point; just change the actors and tweak the story a bit. So if you liked any of these films then you'll enjoy this one as it was very well entertaining.
The information about Wonder Woman's film layout doesn't reflect my opinion of the movie either, this has merely been the way movies are made; it's the copy and pastes efforts of the industry. Wonder Woman (2017) was a very enjoyable movie and it will be in our movie collection as it was as good as the preview made it seem.
