Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Best Spider-Man movie so far
Spider-Man: Homecoming is a MCU movie and if you are familiar with other titles, you can imagine how this movie works.
Part of becoming a hero is skipped and it's a big plus, since we know it already and seen it thousands of times. The movie shows that expectations about being superhero may differ from reality and that makes Spider-Man a bit different from other superhero movies.
Since Spider-Man is a 'teen' in this movie, Tom Holland act like one and he does a great job. Making Spider-Man younger again didn't make movie childish. Of course it's not serious drama movie and you shouldn't expect it from Spider-Man, but the movie can entertain adults just as kids, just because it's not filled with too much fantasy and unbelievable stuff. Jokes fits perfectly and are not overwhelming. If you are looking for fun family movie - this one is probably the best pick from whole MCU movie collection.
It's easy to watch, entertaining and filled with good humor- go for it.
One of the best TV shows out there.
If you ask yourself a question: "Should I watch this?".
The answer is: "Yes".
What is it? It's the show about theme park where robots live* as they were humans. And humans are allowed to do everything there... at first. Season 1 is doing good job by describing this world from it's every perspective and allowing us to understand it's rules. Story is good and most events are hard to predict. Season 2, on the other hand, is totally different. Rules of the world are changing and characters are adapting to it. (Story is hard to explain without spoiling anything, so I will skip that.)
There are a lot of criticism about Season 2 and I don't get it. I watched Westworld very carefully and it was very enjoyable experience (both: SO1 and SO2). I think the main issue here is that after incredible Season 1, a lot of fans expected even more from the series. I see Season 2 as a transition period from amazing Season 1 to possibly* great Season 3.
I consider myself as an average viewers, who likes movies about AI and from this perspective this TV show is really good. Ignore negative reviews and try to see the story with your own eyes.
A Quiet Place (2018)
Step in the right direction.
So events take place in post-apocalyptic modern environment, where monsters wiped most of humanity. Monsters are blind and only can hear sounds on great distance. Sounds cool and I really want to see more of this, but... world creation requires much more effort. It feels like movie makers were much more worried about acting and plot stuff rather than making believable world scenario. A Quiet Place is a good example of in which direction modern horror movies must go, but it's far from perfection.
On the first place It's a story about family which tries to survive in this world and also live a full file, like a normal family. In order to live they need to stick to set of rules which forbids to make any loud noise. First part of movie demonstrates us characters and their daily routine to understand their motivation. Actors are doing great job. I sympathize with them and I was really worried about them during intense moments.
A Quiet Place rarely tries to scare with typical horror movie moves. It is using quiet environment to increase intensity of the moment instead of "jump-scaring" every minute. There are only few "jump-scares", but they fit perfectly. A Quiet Place gives feeling of constant danger and it's a perfect fit for selected environment.
And now - world around the story. It's the weakest point of the movie. There are SO MANY possibilities to make this world more realistic and only few good ideas in the movie, but it's certainly not enough to believe in this kind of world. I hope that if there will be sequel (and I really want it), film makers will be more focused on environment details.
Overall: A Quite Place is definitely worth to watch. Good combination of drama and thriller with a bit of sci-fi horror elements. One of my favorite movies in 2018 so far. Give it a try.
The Cloverfield Paradox (2018)
Average movie, logic not included.
So this is kind of prequel of the original Colverfield (which is amazing movie), so I would recommend to watch it before this one. Previous Cloverfield movies weren't giving viewer feeling of typical sci-fi. This - does.
It feels like when they were filming this movie, they always kept "Book of all sci-fi movie cliches" by their hands. However, it's not terrible as it seems after reading all these reviews. I was expecting much more from this movie -true, but there are some mysteries in this universe and The Cloverfield Paradox explain things a bit. I would recommend to watch this if you are desperate to get more information about first Cloverfield movie events. Main issue of Cloverfield Paraxod - it's totally weak movie by itself. If you haven't watched first Cloverfield - this one is just another average quality sci-fi movie.
Plot mostly is predictable and characters are empty. I wanted to skip most dialogues to see whats next. It's not science related at all. All movie scenes consist of how characters appeared in a situation that no human ever experienced before, but they are 100% sure how to solve it. Things just work in a magical way. Film makers try to put in a lot of unfunny jokes and it's making situation even worse than it could be.
Nameja gredzens (2018)
OK movie, but 10 years late.
I like the idea to make a movie about baltic tribes during crusades. There are a lot of interesting traditions and events to explore.
I can feel that The Pagan King wants to be a movie that will introduce the world with Baltic culture and land of Semigallia. However, they put too much accent on showing traditions instead of focusing on characters or plot. The best example is wedding scene. This scene gives us 0 new information about characters. They love each other- we already know it, but what else? We learned how pagan weddings looked like. Well... ok.
Characters are living stereotypes. Bad guy wants to rule this land just because he's bad. Good guys doesn't want to allow him, because he's good. First half of the movie tries to rush all the action without actually introducing us to the characters and as a result there is lack of connection between character and viewer.
Plausibility. I can't believe in this world and actions. Movie budget wasn't great and this fact affected overall movie quality. There are few locations: village, swamp, castle and few more. Village, which is one of the most important locations looks really small and artificial as well as crusader ship- it simply cannot transport so many crusaders.
Visual part of the movie is great. Camera angles and views are well chosen and gives me a feeling of high quality work, especially during fighting scenes. Fight on the sand beach is amazing. Sand and blood is an amazing combination, wish there would be more of that. There are a lot of dynamics and fighting scenes feels natural.... except last one. Fight scene in the swamp with fog and smoke looks unrealistic. Smoke takes over battleground too fast and it feels empty. Film editing makes it even worse, when they show same action with rolling fireballs from different angles all over again during battle.
Overall, The Pagan King gives me feeling of a good movie which struggles because of low budget and poor script. I would recommend to watch this movie if you are interested in old traditions and cultures, otherwise - you can skip it, won't miss anything.
Inspiring and easy to watch
I have found this movie by accidental click on IMDb and decided to watch it without waiting. I am wrestler too and I am always very interested how actors will handle wrestler roles and how wrestling feeling will be represented in the movie. I was not expecting a lot from this movie and in the end I was not disappointed.
Movie is based on true events and that is definitely a plus, since I can also learn something about events I am not familiar with. There are a lot of serious topics, like descrimination, bullying in school, relationships between generations and of course, wrestling. Competitions and training are shown quite realistic. There was only 1 moment in whole movie, when Ali's uncle shows one of the basic moves and wrestlers look at him like they have learned something new, but I believe It was made just to keep things more simple.
In the end It's a well made movie which is not exceptional, but I definitely can recommend it even if you're not a sport lover.
That's how thrillers should look like.
(Sorry for bad English)
Se7en is unique. Usually after watching good movie I want to see it again, but not in this case. This movie shocked me with violence, it gave me so many emotions that i don't want to watch it one more time, I never thought that just a movie can scare so much. Most of horrors novadays doesn't scare so much as Se7en. Storyline is awesome and actors play very good, especially Bradd Pitt in final scene - unforgettable. Morgan Freeman always play well and so he did. After watching Se7en you will start to compare all thrillers with it. By the way I watched Se7en about a year ago but I still remember it very well and I still don't want to re watch it. This film definitely is not for everyone. If you're going to watch film just for fun or with family - choose another movie. Se7en is for serious audience.
