My thoughts on Suicide Squad

ss12.jpg

“Okay”


The chemistry between the team and the banter that they have with each other throughout the film is fantastic. Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jai Courtney did a terrific job with their characters. I thought Margot Robbie really captured the insanity of Harley Quinn and the character itself. Everything basically about the squad was great and fun.ss17I really liked Jared Leto as ‘The Joker’ but I wish he had more screen time since he was barely in the movie. I thought the way they setup Harley Quinn and The Joker’s relationship was done very well. The person who forms the squad, ‘Amanda Waller’ played by Viola Davis was terrific. I also liked the cameos with The Flash and Batfleck. Also, I  thought the action was great. In terms of the negatives, I found the soundtrack to be a bit jarring, dialogue being awful at times (especially during one scene with the villain), sloppy editing throughout, some questionable decisions by characters, and also some scenario’s that just didn’t make sense.ss44Despite the many problems of Suicide Squad, I still had lots of fun and enjoyed the film. It’s very entertaining and I highly recommend you watch this. It’s a very flawed movie but still worth watching.

My thoughts on Star Trek Beyond

STAR TREK BEYOND

“Awesome”


I thoroughly enjoyed this film! It has great humor, action, visuals, and also a great score! I wasn’t bored at all and I was invested from start to finish. I liked this movie more than Star Trek Into Darkness but I still think Star Trek (2009) is still the best out of the three in the new franchise. Simon Pegg (Writer) and Justin Lin (Director) did a phenomenal job with Beyond and I hope Pegg comes back to write the next S.T. film. I also wouldn’t mind Justin Lin coming back to direct another.stb4It was so much fun watching the crew interact with each other and also seeing the Enterprise in action. The performances from the whole cast was fantastic, especially new-comer Sofia Boutella, as Jaylah. The performance by Idris Elba, who plays the villain Krall, I thought was also quite good. Another thing I really enjoyed was the visuals, specifically of Yorktown. In terms of the negatives, I thought that some of the action  scenes were too clunky (shaky cam) but I enjoyed most of it.STAR TREK BEYONDIn conclusion, Star Trek Beyond was fantastic! It will make you laugh, and at times make you go on the edge of your seat! If you haven’t seen the previous films of the new Star Trek franchise (Star Trek (2009), Star Trek Into Darkness) you’ll still have a great time with Beyond but I highly recommend you watch them to further understand the characters relationships with one another and also understand a few more jokes more clearly.

I highly recommend you check this out.

My thoughts on Like Crazy

LC-00716

“Fantastic & Beautiful”


The plot of the film is about a British student, Anna (Felicity Jones) who falls in love with an American student, Jacob (Anton Yelchin). They fall in love for each other and spend months together, but Anna violates her student visa overstaying in the U.S., and when she tries to return to L.A., she is denied.

I really enjoyed and loved this film. The performances from Anton and Felicity are terrific and very powerful. In terms of the dialogue, most of it was improvised by the actors themselves, which I really liked since it really added to the realism to the relationship between Anton and Felicity and the realism of the film.

One of the best things about “Like Crazy” is that it felt real and that I could really relate and understand  the decisions the characters had to make. The film accurately depicts what a couple would go through and the challenges of being in a long distance relationship and in a relationship in general. Unlike many other romantic films, “Like Crazy” doesn’t sugercoat and glamorize anything. “Like Crazy” is an honest love story about two people who truly love each other.

LC-00834Overall, I think “Like Crazy” is great! I was very emotionally invested in the characters and the story. The music and cinematography are also superb! I would highly recommend you to watch this if you love romance movies.

Rating –  ★★★★

Rest In Peace,  Anton Yelchin.

A phenomenal actor and person gone way too soon.

“SO MUCH FUN”


I haven’t laughed so hard in awhile. THE NICE GUYS is fucking funny!  THE NICE GUYS was a blast and it kept getting funnier and funnier throughout. The pacing was great and I was never bored. I was smiling/laughing a ton and had so much fun!TNG_Day_#32_12102014-61.dngThe story is super fun and also very interesting! Set in the 70s, the story is about 2 private investigators, played by Crowe and Gosling who work together to solve a case about a porn star. As the film progresses, the story gets more and more interesting and fun! The chemistry between Ryan and Russell is perfect. Angourie Rice, who plays Gosling’s daughter Holly, nailed it! She was phenomenal and she is definitely an actress to look out for in the future. Angourie’s chemistry with Gosling was also perfect! Not only does THE NICE GUYS have a fun/engrossing story and phenomenal performances, it also has a great soundtrack!TNG_Day_#42_01232015-324.dngIn conclusion, THE NICE GUYS is a great fucking film! Its super hilarious and one of the best movies of 2016! I had so much fun watching this and the whole audience could not stop laughing. It was so much FUN and very entertaining! Awesome buddy-cop 70s comedy! Brilliantly written and directed! Watch this ASAP.

My thoughts on Green Room

“Brutal, Riveting & Tense”


The story –   “A punk band plays a gig at a club. While the punk band is at the club, they stumble upon something that they shouldn’t have seen.”   This is all you need to know, although it may be vague. Trust me, the less you know the better, especially for this film. Just go in, sit, and enjoy the thrilling ride.

WOW! This was fucking amazing! This film deserves all the praise it’s getting because Jeremy Saulnier did it once again and directs another phenomenal film! Fantastic cinematography, directing and writing! Phenomenal performances from the whole cast, and a killer soundtrack! It’s very entertaining and I was invested from start to finish. I was on the edge of my seat and my heart was racing several times. It’s one of the best thrillers ever and definitely worth your price of admission.

The violence in this film doesn’t hold back and is brutal as it can get. Thus, this is the only thing that may scratch your interest into watching this film. It’s gruesome and gory, so if you feel sick easily by the sight of blood and disturbing images, you may want to skip this one out. I encourage you regardless if you are a bit sensitive to gore/disturbing images to take a chance and watch this. It’s truly a phenomenal film!

In conclusion, “Green Room” is fucking awesome! I highly recommend you check this out! If you enjoy thrillers, this is the one to watch ASAP. The director of Green Room also directed another film called Blue Ruin which is also great and you should also check out when you can. I can’t wait to watch this over and over again! I love it! It’s a pure thrill ride.

My thoughts on Everybody Wants Some

ews12.jpg

“AWESOME!!”


The trailers do not do this movie justice at all! Alright, from the very beginning, I knew I was in for a treat. The plot is very straightforward, its about a bunch of college baseball players and it follows them on their day to day lives. As the movie progresses, you get introduced to more and more characters from the baseball team. I really liked all the characters and they all felt real. The whole cast did a fantastic job!

Everybody Wants SomeThe cast have such great chemistry together, when the jokes hit, they don’t feel forced since the actors themsleves feel like they are genuinely having such a great and fun time. I had a smile on my face for most of the runtime. Linklater did such a great job bringing you into the 80s and also a great job showing the spirit and friendship that comes with being part of a team. Also, the soundtrack is awesome.

“Everybody Wants Some” was so much fun to watch.

My thoughts on The Jungle Book

“Incredible & Beautiful”


 I absolutely loved this movie! It’s one of my favourite movies of the year so far! The visual effects are fantastic and they blew me away! It’s breathtaking! Not only does this movie have phenomenal visuals, it also has great characters and fantastic voice acting! The plot is similar to the original with a few changes/twists here and there. The story follows Neel Sethi, Mowgli escaping the threat from the tiger Shere Khan and while venturing onwards in the jungle, he meets new creatures.THE JUNGLE BOOKThe whole cast did a terrific job, especially Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Bill Murray as Baloo, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa and Christopher Walken as King Louie. Idris Elba’s voice really suited Shere Khan and really made him terrifying! The actor who played Mowgli, Neel Sethi,  in my opinion did a great job with what he had to do. He had to act basically across nothing but blue/green screens and puppets. Overall, amazing voice work and great performances!THE JUNGLE BOOKThe soundtrack was gorgeous! Hearing Baloo (Bill Murray) and Mowgli sing  “Bare Necessities” was awesome and brought a smile on my face! Jon Favreau did a fantastic job adapting The Jungle Book! I highly recommend you watch this! You will have a great time and have so much fun! It exceeded my expectations and I’m really looking forward to the upcoming live action disney movies. The Jungle Book is incredible and one of Disney’s best!
