Movie Review: Venom

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1270797/

Score: 6/10

I’d read a lot of reviews for this movie before seeing it. Most of the reviews either shit on this movie or said that it was fun, but definitely not amazing. I belong to the latter camp.

Movie Review: Christopher Robin

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4575576/

Score: 6/10

I’m not sure what I expected when I started watching this movie. I had a lot of ideas of what I wanted, and I generally got a small taste of all of them. Christopher Robin is a movie that touches upon all the notes that I’d want to see in a Winnie the Pooh movie, but doesn’t go in depth enough, leaving me feeling mostly unsatisfied and strangely wanting a lengthier movie.

Movie Review: A Simple Favor

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7040874/

Score: 6.8/10

A Simple Favor is a suspenseful, mysterious crime drama that can almost be classified as a comedy. If you like Gone Girl with a healthy dose of Anna Kendrick style humor and Blake Lively style fashion, then you’ll likely enjoy this movie.

Movie Review: Crazy Rich Asians

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3104988/

Score: 6.5/10

Crazy Rich Asians is a cookie cutter romantic comedy that gives a small, vague, fictional glimpse at wealthy, Singaporean Chinese culture. The main draw is Chinese people. It reminded me of the love behind Black Panther when, in my opinion, Black Panther was only about as good as Doctor Strange. It reminded me of the saying that in order to win an Oscar, all you need to do is make a Holocaust movie. In other words, this is an average genre movie that plays on racial biases in order to be successful.

Movie Review: Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7424200/

Score: 6.2/10

Teen Titan’s Go! To the Movies is an animated comedy that largely target children. However, if you’ve been a fan of the more serious Teen Titans cartoon, of the more lighthearted Teen Titans Go!, or of superhero properties in general and want to see them made fun of, then you may enjoy this movie as well.

Movie Review: Mission Impossible: Fallout

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4912910/

Score: 8/10

Mission Impossible: Fallout is the latest in the Mission Impossible franchise. The story isn’t particularly meaningful, but that’s not what this franchise has ever been about. Mission Impossible is about the action and there is a ton of action in this movie.

Movie Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5095030/

Score: 7/10

Ant-Man and the Wasp is a fun Marvel movie that takes place just before the events of Infinity War. It really has no connection to the events of Infinity War with the exception being a mid credits scene after the movies over.

Movie Review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4881806/

Score: 6/10

Jurrasic World: Fallen Kingdom achieves whole new levels of crazy and stupid. It’s a completely nonsensical story that follows the classic horror tropes of characters doing deliberately stupid things. I still sort of enjoyed it in a perverse way, but this movie is fucking stupid.

Movie Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3778644/

Score: 7.3/10

I didn’t know what to expect when I started watching this movie. I’ve definitely been a victim of Star Wars fatigue and the idea of another spin-off like Rogue One is unappealing. However, Solo: A Star Wars Story has turned out to be one of my favorite Star Wars movies, maybe even my favorite Star Wars movie since Disney bought the franchise. The biggest weakness of this film in my opinion is likely also its most attractive attribute to prospective movie goers, and that is its connection to the Star Wars franchise.

Movie Review: Ocean’s Eight

Details: More information can be found at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5164214/

Score: 6/10

Ocean’s Eight is technically a sequel to George Clooney’s Ocean’s Eleven movie series. Ocean’s Eleven was originally a remake of Ocean’s 11, also a heist movie that came out decades ago. It’s an okay movie where the biggest attraction of the movie is the many celebrity faces in the cast in addition to the celebrities who make cameos.
