Thunder Force

 Thunder Force is trash. I am not even sure if yne casting was a joke. The movie has a trite and derivative plot. The acting is phoned in. It is a dumb movie doesn’t take chances and doesn’t seem as self aware as it would need to be at least entertaining. It is probably up some ones alley, but not me.

Thoughts on Godzilla vs Kong

Godzilla vs Kong is fine enough for HBO Max. It may leave you with some questions.  Why is there a sun underground? How would plants be there without it? Did Godzilla just smile? Why would giant apes build a big throne? It’s certainly a dumb movie, but not offensively bad. The characters aren’t given time to develop at all. So if the writers aren’t going to care, why should you. Just enjoy the giants pummeling each other.

Thoughts on Bad Trip

 Bad Trip is a fine distraction movie. It is like most other road trip movies. There are some fun Jackass style pranks. The actors do a great job sellling their pranks. The humor is crude and dumb. Sometimes those types of movies are a nice distraction. The plot is even hardly mentionable so you won’t feel guilty checking your phone.

Thoughts on Extra Ordinary

 Extra Ordinary is a cute novie. It’s a charming Irish movie. The actors are great and the humor is dark. It’s quirky and fun. Check it out if you want a change of pace. It was a nice change of pace.

Thoughts on Sex and the City 1&2

Sex and the City movies both suceed and fail in various ways.  The characters fall back into comfortable rolls and perform them pretty reflexively. The problem with the first is that it’s a bloated, extra long episode. The second takes the characters and puts them in a completely unrelatable location. It’s entertaining enough you enjoy the show. Just don’t expect any real substance.

Thoughts on Downhill

 Downhill is an entertaining movie  Julia Louie Dreyfus and Will Ferrell give good performances that showcase more acting skill, rather then buffoonery. It’s a dark comedy with subtlety. I recommend it to anyone else sick of the stale comedy schtick.

Thoughts on Coming 2 America

Coming 2 America is a pretty cute movie. It does go in a few odd directions like a action fight, musical numbers galore, or the cg lion test. It is still charming and keeps a fun pace. It respects the original enough and creates another fun modern fairy tale. Check it out if you enjoyed the original. Just remember that the tone has taken a more silly tone. Here is a postscript, the costumes and hair styles are fantastic
