I was skeptical about it since the hype is similar to The Lego Movie, which I'm sorry to say I didn't like very much. But perhaps this one will be different.

The LEGO Movie 2: Second Part

Caught an early screening today. You all know me... the first LEGO Movie is my favorite film of all time. This film had a lot of expectations to fill. Safe to say, though... I thought it was really fun. I felt this film felt really expansive and ambitious. The animation, once again, is stellar. The story is really cool and way better than the original, I feel. The only thing that really puts it below the original is the comedy. It's funny, sure, but unlike the OG, I feel like the comedy got in the way too much for me to really enjoy it. They were cramming in jokes a mile a minute and not all of them really worked. It's a shame too, because there's a lot of creative elements here, but some of the comedy will probably date the film and make it hard to really recommend it to someone who already didn't care for the original.
All in all, a good film with some great animation and a touching story.

7/10

It was honestly excellent. It's a really awesome blend of superhero and anime/super sentai tropes that just... kinda works really well? It's not exactly an innovative film, but the voice acting is pretty good and its a fantastic movie to just turn off your brain and have a bunch of dumb fun watching.

I saw two movies tonight. Anastasia and Isle of Dogs.

Anastasia was stupid and weird. I have no idea who decided to make Rasputin an evil zombie wizard, but I want to congratulate you on ruining/saving this dull ass movie. 4/10

Isle of Dogs is a completely different beast. I loved it so much! So visually striking and compelling. Everything is so reserved and chill. It was honestly hypnotic. It kinda dragged near the latter half. I don’t know entirely what it was, but I was almost bored by it at a point. Almost. Still really good though! 8.5/10

The last movie that I watched was the infamous "Producer's Cut" of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, which is the sixth installment in the movies' franchise. This particular version actually was the "original" cut of the film, until the studio decided to do reshoots after negative test audience feedback. This version, known as the "Theatrical Cut," was released instead, and is considered by many to be a terrible Halloween film.

In this film, Michael's motivation to kill is finally "explained." When Michael was a child, he had a "curse" put on him. This curse is known as "Thorn," and its origins dates back to the ancient Celtic Druid times. This "curse" works by making its victim gain superhuman strength, and invulnerability, and in order for the hex to be lifted, everyone involved in your bloodline must be eradicated. Afterwards, the "curse" would be passed onto another poor sap. There's a bit more to it than that, but for the sake of not making this too long, I'll end explanations at that.

A lot of fans hate this idea, and find it a lot more scarier that Michael has no "reasoning" towards his malevolent ways; he is just "pure evil" personified. I actually think this was a pretty interesting idea. It probably could have been executed better, though?

The atmosphere is great, and the acting is good. The mask used for the film has mixed reception, but I really love it. I find it looks really demented and evil. It's an improvement from the mask used in the fifth film, that's for sure. Michael's portrayals by George P. Wilbur and Allen Michael Lerner are really good, wicked, and brutal. The kills are okay, but I think the Theatrical Cut made them a bit better by adding some more gore to a few of them.

A lot of people tend to find the Theatrical Cut a confusing mess of a movie. I happen to agree with them. I prefer the Producer's Cut. This is how the film should have been released back in 1995.

LEGO Movie 2. It was good, but not the best. I certainly enjoyed it, but I also felt like it just didn’t have the same heart or humor to it as the first two.

If I had to rank the movies so far in order, I’d have to say it’s:
1. LEGO Batman Movie
2. LEGO Movie
3. LEGO Movie 2
4. LEGO Ninjago

Venom

I don't think I've liked a superhero movie less, and as the self proclaimed queen of Marvel, I'm surprised. Batman v Superman had more depth and personality than this complete waste of two hours. There was one good action scene, and the symbiote itself was very well written, but everything else was a complete mess. The acting was all over the place, the writing was awful, the CGI felt cheap, the only positive things I can say I already covered.
Also Kleatus Cassidy looked like Ronald McDonald, I hated it.

Shin Godzilla

What a wonderful movie! I was impressed by the movie's ability to take the most boring part of a typical Godzilla movie (the humans) and actually make it quite interesting. It reminded me a lot of Doctor Strangelove at points. I don't think people who just wanna see big monster fights will like this movie as much, but this movie's version of Goji is still a spectacle to behold and is actually quite disturbing.

Takeshi Kitano's Hana-bi/Fireworks

Been itching to see this for a while, and it didn't disappoint. Only seen one Kitano movie before this (+ some of Takeshi's Castle), so I'm looking forward to checking out what else he's worked on. Seems like his films have got a knack for mixing brutality with more lighthearted elements in a way that still feels sincere.

No spoilers, but it is definitely the ultimate culmination of the entire MCU up to this point. Even more so than Infinity War. Absolutely phenomenal.

watched 2 movies today. teen titans go to the movies and anna and the apocalypse.

teen titans go to the movies
this movie was much more better than what it had the right to be. comedy was pretty funny and i laughed out loud at a lot of jokes and references. ending joke left it on a high note. honestly a pleasant surprise
that actually had heart in it to. 7/10

anna and the apocalypse
fun promising concept of a zombie christmas musical with a first half that was super enjoyable. music was catchy but this movie gets depressing in its second half where it forgets that its a musical and filled with death and surprising emotional scenes. a fun and then a depressing time but could have been better with a budget. 7/10

Detective Pikachu.

Now THAT's what video game movies should be. Inside the universe, not trying to talk down to fans, anime as **** optional.

The amount of family unfriendly jokes was crazy too! I was expecting most of it from Reynolds, but "it's the stuff that went up my nose" and the Magikarp gag were surprising.

Detective Pikachu

Overall, a pretty fun time! Definitely the best video game adaptation, but that's not really saying much. It suffered some story issues, and the plot was kind of thin at times, but the humor was really well done, and above all, they made a Pokemon world believable. Everyone and everything in that world felt like it was a natural fit. It was less of a "oh look, Pokemon" film and more of a "Pokemon exist here, here's the narrative that just so happens to feature them in a prominent role" thing. Definitely made for the people who grew up with it though, not for people who have no knowledge or interest in the series.

Detective Pikachu

Thought the animation was pretty good overall. Mewtwo's mouthflaps could have been a little better; not used to seeing it move it's lips. Pikachu looked so fluffy and cuddly, though. I loved seeing all of the fur patterns on its body. Made me like pikachu a bit more. Usually I kind of roll my eyes at the electric mouse because it's everywhere, but Ryan Reynolds made it really charming to me.

I really liked the setup/worldbuilding for the story. Rhyme city seemed cool. I'd totally want to live there. However, I feel the plot ultimately played out like a generic anime movie at the end. Cool to see those troupes in English and live-action; but also disappointing, because the story could have been so much deeper. I don't really feel like the movie needed a big anime battle at the end. Then again, this is Pokemon. You know, the franchise where you make your anime monsters fight. I just feel that the plot could have gone in a more interesting direction had it not been tied down to keeping up brand image.

Despite this, I feel that the movie balanced out keeping up an image and exploring new things pretty well. I mean, there's a scene where the pokemon are in illegal cage fights and basically using 'roids. Not what I'd generally expect from an official pokemon product. Pikachu even says "hell". Love it.

Secret Life of Pets 2

I was kinda dragged along to this movie more than seeing it out of my own free will, but it was okay. There were a few funny moments I can remember, but I disliked almost all of the tiger subplot thing, and Max getting involved in it felt really forced. it was pretty good up until the last like, third of the film. Overall, it was pretty serviceable.

- - -

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

I thought this was also a pretty decent movie. I'm not a huge Godzilla fan by any stretch, but my favorites have always been Mothra and Mechagodzilla, so it was really nice to see Mothra kick some Titan butt in the film. I liked all the references to Kong, even though I kind of disliked that film, just because it helped it feel like an actual universe setting up future films without forcing it in the ways that films like Iron Man 2 did. Also, this film pleasantly surprised me because for once I actually cared about the human characters caught up in the middle of it.

I feel like I had the opposite opinion of many of the critics and fans alike, though. I didn't think it was "too dark to see what was going on", the lighting for the fights was pretty decent and believable when you have a giant three headed storm dragon making a Cat 6 hurricane over your fight. While a lot of people said "the monster fights were the best part", I kind of disagree. I don't really know what I felt like the best part is, but we saw Godzilla and Ghidorah fight 3 times over the course of the film, and over time, it felt like there was only so many ways you could watch the two charge, Godzilla catch two of the heads, get bit in the neck by the middle one, get shot by lightning and fall over, etc. Partially because of my Mothra bias, I much preferred watching Mothra and Rodan fight. Hell, I even preferred the Ghidorah vs Rodan fight, just because it was something fresh. Don't get me wrong, it was cool in Antarctica, the last half in Boston was rad, but any other time the two fought, it felt the same.

Overall, I'd say the movie is the most solid one in the Monsterverse so far, even though I have some minor issues with it. Mothra should have been in it more though. > : (

Godzilla: King of The Monsters (2019)
I'm not going to spoil anything (For now), so don't worry. smilie

Damn that was good. Is the movie perfect? Obviously not, as no film is without its flaws. (I wouldn't even say that it's near perfect either, mind you) That said, is it as bad as critics claim it to be? Hell no.
This is a movie that fans will more than likely enjoy because it really does pander to them, but it's also a movie that I'm sure even someone who isn't a Godzilla and/or Kaijū fan can still enjoy and have a good time watching.

The movie admittedly has its slow moments (Especially at the beginning), but I can excuse that to an extent because I understand that Hollywood and the Japanese film industry are very different.
(And that they're also trying to expand upon an ever-growing universe, no less)

It doesn't feel too exposition heavy either, imo, and the humans were actually enjoyable for once.
The humans were a bit cheesy, sure, but that honestly made them more enduring and seem more... human in a way, imo. lol

They felt more grounded in reality despite their cheesiness, and I actually ended up giving a damn about them and caring about their part in all that was happening.
It felt organic in a way that I'm not accustomed to for Godzilla, and I cannot appreciate that enough. Like, I actually felt sad when certain characters died because they actually made me care for them.

I'll admit that perhaps this movie does still focus on the humans a bit too much. (Albeit still not as much as the 2014 film)
But the way that they do it and the way that the humans are portrayed made me honestly not mind that much, and actually made me want to see how they'd all end up after the dust settles.

The monster fights were also really damn good, and I didn't personally understand the complaints about the movie being "too dark" or any of that nonsense as the lighting was more than good enough to see what was happening.

If I was to think of this from a more "objective" standpoint, I still wouldn't rate it nearly as low as some critics did. That said, I'd probably only rate it a tad higher than the 2014 film. (So, like, in the mid-to-high 70's, basically)
I honestly get the impression that the critics just kind of had a stick up their asses for some dumb reason. :/

Makes me kind of question who the critic scores are even for if not for the average everyday person.
I expect critics to be more critical, sure, as that's literally in their name.

But sometimes it seems like they serve no purpose when they rate a movie so low that most people would probably enjoy.
That, and how they also like compare movies that are completely different to try and discredit one, when they should be judged based on their own merits and the genre that they're in.

Regardless, the movie is honestly probably one of my favorites now, topping the 2014 film as my second favorite. (Godzilla 2000 will always be my main squeeze, though smilie)
I'll probably add a bit more later where I'll talk about the actual monster fights a bit more in detail, but for now this'll do. smilie

The Punisher (2004)

This has to be one of my favorite Marvel movies. Thomas Jane does a great job portraying Frank Castle. (Granted, I do love the Netflix series with Jon Bernthal because god dang it, it is very good.) This movie is really interesting to me because of the funny moments sprinkled in throughout. i mean seriously the blow torch on the chunk of meat scene is my favorite.
