    -Black Panther-
    Wakanda, an advanced society with technology and altruistic morals.

    ....except we still have a Monarchy that is based exclusively on royal blood , and leadership is determined by primitive fighting rituals.


    In all seriousness, I was intrigued by the setting of Wakanda. A society that works together to achieve more. It's very Star Trek-like in that respect. On the other hand, the plot was more dull than Iron Man 3. Black Panther has a real villian , and just a boring movie otherwise.

    So, going into a Guillermo Del Toro film...and you were turned off when it got weird? This makes no sense to me whatsoever. Also, I'm not sure I could classify anything in that film as even "weird". It was shot-for-shot old school fairy tales and classic monster movies. Implied sex has always been a recurring theme in these types of tales. I thought the film was damn near perfect and in my top three Del Toro films.

    Iron Man 3 had the worst villains of all the Marvel movies I've seen. Fire breathing jocks? Really? The best thing about that movie was the retro-style outro credits sequence. I do love the line, "Dad's leave. It's what they do. You don't have to be a pussy about it."

    the ending was complete BS though... the director took inspiration from the book but eventually made the conclusion worth of a silly Hollywood blockbuster...I'd have appreciated something more on the lines of "Picnic at hanging rock" but I will likely watch it again, at least for the rest.

    I agree, the end was a little weak. I wish it ended with an "oh shit" moment. But I think it was at least alright, since it wasn't exactly a happy ending; she didn't really get her husband back.

    Jeepers Creepers 3 - you don't get movies with acting this bad too often. It's so awful it feels like a parody much of the time. Between that and Victor Salva, yeah, not recommended.

    Thor: Ragnarok - the final fight (well, the last one that doesn't involve any goofy critters) in this reminded me of the final fight in Wonder Woman, just with the genders reversed.

    thor ragnarok

    really enjoyed this movie. it was long and epic and felt more like a conan the barbarian in space than a super hero movie.

    the only problem i had with it was that there definitely was a guardians of the galaxy thing going on with led zeppelin playing in big action scenes and the humour all through the movie which kind of ruins the serious moments. but still one of the best super hero movies i've seen in a long while.

    It did Guardians better than Guardians V. 2, IMO. The jokes were funnier and paced better, the action was better, the villain was better. The ensemble-ish cast of Guardians works out okay as a whole, but Hemsworth, Hiddleston, and hell, Idris Elba are all far more charismatic than Chris Pratt is.

    I still quite like GotG V. 1, and I don't care for either of the first two Thor movies. But Ragnarok thoroughly outclasses Guardians V. 2, for me.

    yeah, i thought the jokes in ragnarok was hilarious, which i guess helped the movie considering it was a long sit. and the cast was fantastic.

    idris almba and tessa thompson as valkyrie was awesome. and i thought all the returning cast played their roles much better this time around including loki and thor himself.

    thor was much more like a god in this, where as in the other movies he was just another super hero.

    It was my second favorite Marvel movie so far after Cap 2. But I'm a fan of the character, especially the Christopher Priest series, so this was aimed at me.

    Also, the first Avengers movie is fucking shit.

    Jungle- From the director of The Belko Experiment and Rogue comes a movie that's actually pretty damn good. Based on true events about a group of 3 backpackers in 1981 who hire a dubious guide to take them through the uncharted Bolivian jungle. What could go wrong?

    Had zero expectations going in aside from knowing the director and that Daniel Radcliffe was in it, I was pretty positively surprised. Well paced, well acted and very well shot, though a bit predictable. I'd liken it to something along the lines of The Beach meets Fitzcarraldo.

    Watched Outsider on Netflix, and thought it was good filler. Kind of a Last Samurai, where Jared Leto earns a yakuza’s debt, and finds himself rising within a dying family. There was a scene in the movie where the families meet at a sumo wrestling match, which was a great metaphor for the territorial warfare between families. Leto slowly gains more Japanese vocabulary as he spends more time with the yakuza. Overall, the movie is the most watchable nflx movie of the past year.

    Black Panther

    I really enjoyed it. There are people being overly analytical about the practicality and improbability of Wakanda's prosperity. "How can a country be so advanced but still fight with spears and determine rule through trial by combat?"

    Here's my answer: It's a comic book movie. Just go with it.

    I feel it's a bit overrated and is most definitely NOT 'a perfect film' but it's a good flick and is significant in a number of ways.

    The Winter Soldier is still a better movie, and not by a little bit in my opinion.

    Annihilation

    I really liked it. I know it was based on a series of novels so I'm not sure what liberties were taken and I don't care. This was a provocative movie that didn't pander and didn't beg for attention. In fact, the studio did just about everything they could to bury it but it is a very interesting film about the very idea of life. I feel it's a big screen movie but it is also a bit too cerebral for general audiences. Good performances all around, good effects and some legit eerie moments that were unsettling. A good example of the plot and characters informing the tension at just the right moments rather than demanding action beats every ten minutes. It's a shame that this was marketed like an Aliens style survival horror-action hybrid. It's not.

    I haven't seen Black Panther (not interested in comic book superhero movies anymore, at all), but Wakanda is geographically fictionally situated between Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda

    so basically Rwanda? Rwanda... wRanda... waRanda.. Wakanda. ok.

    Yeah, that's not a great country, but I guess they didn't want to name it Rubundi or Jabouti.

    Justice League - it was alright, if flawed. Mamoa and Miller are the clear standouts, IMO. Affleck is okay as Batman, maybe even pretty good, but this version of Batman is also incredibly boring. The Bale version had heart because of the way Nolan wrote him, I think, and that's what's missing now (looking back on it, I'd suggest that Bale himself was actually kind of overrated in the role).

    Dumb villain. But then that's the case in 90% of superhero movies, so whatever. Bad/non-existent character arcs for Cyborg and Aquaman, in particular. Poor use of Wonder Woman, another character that Snyder/Whedon don't write well.

    Better than Suicide Squad (not saying much).

    Verónica. Pretty mediocre horror movie but the addendum is great. Shows photos from the crime scene and describes how this was the first case in Spain of the responding officers to have reported paranormal activity.

    Just came back from seeing this. It was great. I think this was the last day for it's theatrical run, glad I didn't miss it. Had high expectations coming off of Ex-Machina and it delivered.

    Unfortunately there were only about 5 people in the theater and they all talked the entire time trying to figure out what was going on. Had to literally stand up halfway through and tell the guy and his ugly ass GF next to me to "shut the fuck up" I hate people.

    I'm fairly certain it's not her at the end of the movie. The scenes at the end were all told in reverse-the lifeform that assumed Natalie Portman's identity was the one trying to escape and Portman was trying to stop it. That was my interpretation, anyway.
