Movie Review Thread 4.0: The Unnecessary Reboot

Recommended Posts

Sebastian Stan isnt captivating, witty, funny, or versatile enough to play Captain America.

Winter Soldier is perfect for him because Winter Soldier doesnt really have a personality from all the shit he's been through. Glad they chose Anthony Mackie.

Hello Ladies, gentlemen, true believers, and new comers alike,

Your man, MDCFAN101, has decided to do a very special movie review for you.  Today, I'm going to give you guys and gals my personal review on one of my personal favorite comic book/superhero movies of all time that I strongly believe to be very underrated, and underappreciated.  This film helped kick start the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) back in 2013.  This film is somewhat near my top 10 if not top 15 comic book/superhero movies of all time.  Folks, I am going to review Man of Steel.

Man of Steel - Movie Review

Positives:

  • The story is excellent.  I loved what they did with Superman's origin.  I thought what they did with Superman's origin was unique, interesting, and original.  The more I follow the story, the more I can tell they used elements from John Byrne's Man of Steel series, Mark Said's Superman Birthright series, and J. Michael Straczynski's Superman: Earth One series.
  • The C.G.I., visuals, and special effects are outstanding.
  • The movie contains an all-star cast and the acting throughout the film is phenomenal.  You have Russell Crowe as Jor-El, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent, Henry Cavill as Superman, and Michael Shannon as General Zed.
  • The action/fight sequences are intense and absolutely awesome.  This movie is action packed from beginning to end.
  • The score/music composed by Hans Zimmer is absolutely beautiful.

Negatives:

  • The only complaints I have with this movie are primarily little things so I'm not really going to get into them TBH.

Overall: This film is IMO the best Superman film since the first two Christopher Reeve Superman films.  Zach Snyder and Christopher Nolan both did an excellent job in giving us a fresh new take on Superman and his mythology.  Both of these deserve men deserve a lot more love, respect, and credit for what they did.  IMO Man of Steel was an excellent start to the DC Extended Universe.

Grade: A+

I would blame WB more than Zach Snyder.

As for Cavill potentially not coming back, only time will tell.

Nonetheless, I still say Man of Steel was an excellent start to the DCEU.  Besides, the DCEU has been great recently.  3 of their last 4 films have been outstanding.

I still say Iron Man is a better start for its universe as RDJ never left lol and MOS is not better than Iron Man like its not even close lol 

While Man of Steel is good its a alright start to a universe that should of been doing what they were doing now taking their time and focus on characters  instead of rushing 

Cavill said he's done because he's bust with the Witcher and WB has no plans for Superman if Cavill was still Superman he would of been in Shazam instead of a body double lol

JL really made Superman worse with the Baby Lips lol I wouldn't want to come back either

I'm not arguing about Iron Man being the better start of the two, but I still like Man of Steel more. 

It's all about appeal my friend.  Man of Steel to some degree appeals to me more than the first Iron Man.

As for the "baby lips", yeah they were pretty crappy.  Nonetheless, Cavill was a great Superman.  IMO, Henry Cavill was the best Superman since Christopher Reeve.

I wouldn't say they ruined him.  Yeah giving him those crappy CGI 'baby lips" was bad, but it didn't destroy his character completely. 

As for the CW Superman, he is a very good Superman.  Although, I'll admit I like Tom Wailing's Smallville Superman a bit more.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile - Review (2019)

The Good
Zac Efron's Performance as Theodore "Ted" Bundy makes this film watchable, every scene with him in just great and when hes not on screen just makes the film go down. 

James Hetfield is also really good in this film as well Jim Parsons.

All the scenes where Ted Bundy escapes prison are great. 

The trial scenes are really great. 

The Bad
Lily Collins performance who is just there. 

John Malkovich is just there. 

Kaya Scodelario could of been better. 

Joe Berlinger's meh direction the film kinda goes all over the place with not so great pacing. 

Some of the writing is just there.

The movie looks incredibly cheap like it was straight to VOD

That weird sex scene. 

Final Thoughts: Pretty meh film, but Zac Efron's performance makes this film watchable as he carries the entire movie. 

Overall Grade: C-

Long Shot - Review (2019)

The Good
Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron are both great and their chemistry is magic on screen as the 2 really play off each other really well and you believe their romance between these two cause its not rushed as Jonathan Levine takes his time to build his characters and the romance. 

Like I said Jonathan Levine's great direction.

Dan Sterling and Liz Hannah smart screenplay with really good social commentary. 

Andy Serkis surprising performance I'm so happy the trailers didn't spoil this cause I laughed my ass off. 

The amazing supporting cast with O'Shea Jackson Jr. (Who is just fantastic this dude has so much potential), June Diane Raphael, Bob Odenkirk (who is always great), and Alexander Skarsgård. 

Its really sweet and heartfelt like Levine's 50/50 and even The Night Before. 

The amazing Soundtrack. 

The Bad
Its too long like some scenes could of been cut or been shorter. 

Its pretty formulaic which you could see how this movie will play out. 

Final Thoughts: in what could of been another disaster for Levine like Snatched which was just horrible, but thankfully this is another great film for Levine who is now 4-1.

Overall Grade: B+

Brightburn - Review (2019)

The Good
I thought the performances around the board were great from Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones and everyone else were really great. 

David Yarovesky's decent directing  (even though would of been more interesting with James Gunn as Director)

The Cinematography is great at times. 

The Kills are insanely brutal, especially one scene in the movie that had my stomachs in knots. 

Note a huge thing but usually Sony spoils shit in trailers and surprisingly they didn't spoil anything. 

The Bad
The pacing feels rushed and doesn't really let some scenes breathe like this could of been longer to make certain scenes breathe.

While the acting is great there is really no character depth or growth or development so you really don't care for anyone one really. 

Some the editing is kind of fast idk if that was on purpose. 

Final Thoughts: Not a Perfect Movie, but definitely the first Screen Gems movie I found enjoyable since they just make shit, but if you wanted Evil Superman you will be happy. 

Overall Grade: B

Pokémon Detective Pikachu - Review (2019)

The Good
Ryan Reynold's as Pikachu obviously is the best part of the entire movie. 

The Fantastic World Building, Rime City feels like a real city. 

The fantastic Visual Effects with Pokemon and they all look accurate. 

It appeals for everyone. 

The Pokemon theme is in there. 

Fantastic Pacing with a perfect run time. 

The Humor really works. 

The Bad
The Plot is pretty predictable. 

The human characters are not surprisingly boring, Justice Smith is better in this than Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom but he's still flat in this. 

Kathryn Newton doesn't get a whole lot. 

Bill Nighy is wasted as well as Ken Watanabe and as well as Rita Ora who is really cringy. 

The 3rd act is a mess. 

Final Thoughts: Not a perfect Movie, but still an enjoyable movie and definitely the best Video Game Movie by a land slide. 

Overall Grade: B-

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum - Review (2019)

The Good
Keanu Reeves once again kills it at John Wick who gives a fantastic performance and is incredibly bad ass as hell. 

Chad Stahelski fantastic direction and insane Action Sequences and their all different one even involved a fucking book from the first act alone. 

Halle Berry gives her best performance since 2003 she's bad ass in this and her dogs even get in on the action. 

Lance Reddick gets more to do, Anjelica Huston is fantastic, Ian McShane is always great.

Lawrence Fishburneis awesome and Randall Duk Kim (also from The Matrix) was a nice surprise. 

Dan Laustsen's Cinematography is visually stunning that is breathtaking. 

As the 2nd film open the world of John Wick a bit this does it even bigger. 

There's a lot of interesting surprises in the 2nd act. 

Its also has a lot dark humor even more than the other films. 

The Bad
Mark Dacascos as Zero who does a good job with the action is pretty much a ordinary villain. 

There's one scene that is a bit silly for the John Wick movies if you see it you'll know what I'm talking about. 

Final Thoughts: John Wick 3 is a fantastic action film from start to finish and giving Keanu Reeves a great trilogy finally. 

Overall Grade: A

Aladdin - Review (2019)

The Good
Will Smith steals the show as the Genie as many of us thought he would, no he isn't better than Robin Williams nor should he be, his Genie is his own version of the character. 

Naomi Scott & Mena Massoud as Jasmine and Aladdin were pretty good, more to Scott his gives a better performance as Jasmine. 

The Musical sequences are mostly good with A Friend Like Me and A Whole New World being great, but the best song is a Original song called Speechless from Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) which was surprisingly made her character better and not weak and useless like in the animation. 

Like I said above the film makes Jasmine a stronger character giving her a motivation and goal she wants in the film unlike the animation where she had no goal and was just there. 

The costume design is great. 

The Bad
Guy Ritchie's terrible direction which 2017's King Arthur and this shows he shouldn't be doing big budget movies anymore, the first act alone with editing is horrible which shows the One Jump sequence have slow motion and weirdly noticeable Fast-Forward shots which was really bad. 

Marwan Kenzari as Jafar is really awful, his line delivery is flat as hell because he's incredibly miscast because Jafar is not a young guy he's a old creepy dude.

 Iago is just terrible he's not even really a character just a plain old bird which waste Alan Tudyk. 

The pacing is terrible which in the first act takes us 40 minutes to get the Genie. 

Painfully terrible script by John August (Charlie's Angels, Dark Shadows) which is all over the place.

The inconsistent visual effects which sometimes look really good and then sometimes looks really horrible. 

Final Thoughts: Aladdin is a alright movie that only gets enjoyable after the first 40 minutes and that is no where better than the 1992 classic, so if you never seen Aladdin (lol) then go watch the 1992 Version.

Overall Grade: C-

Booksmart - Review (2019)

The Good
Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein performances and chemistry carry this entire movie. 

Olivia Wilde's fantastic Directorial debut. 

The hilarious screenplay by Emily Halpern, Sarah Haskins, Susanna Fogel, and Katie Silberman, who give a more original take on the teen party movie. 

Billie Lourd for me stole the entire movie she's fucking crazy who gives her best performance yet. 

The fantastic supporting cast like Noah Galvin, Skyler Gisondo, Jessica Williams, Jason Sudeikis, Lisa Kudrow, Will Forte, Mike O'Brien, and Maya Rudolph (uncredited). 

The Doll sequence had me fucking dying. 

Like Superbad its also a great coming of age story. 

The fast pacing actually works and it never feels boring. 

The final act has a lot of character development more than Superbad.

The credits is pretty great. 

The Bad
Nothing this movie is perfect. 

Final Thoughts: Booksmart is easily the best comedy of the year so far (probably actually will be) 

Overall Grade: A+

The Dead Don't Die - Review (2019)

The Good
Bill Murray and Adam Driver carry this movie with their great performances 

Jim Jarmusch's hipster but fun direction 

The rest of cast is great from Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Rosie Perez, Iggy Pop, Selena Gomez and more. 

Whenever RZA shows up instead of Ups its Wu-ps like lol. 

Talking zombies. 

The 3rd Act is where this movie really shines 

The musical score is great and The Dead Don't Die Song. 

Some on the nose jokes.  

The Bad
It nearly takes 30 minutes for the Dead to rise and the movie is a hour 30 and then after the first 2 deaths it take awhile to show them again which I feel hurts the movie big time which could make the movie very boring. 

Some or most of the characters are idiots. 

Some of the writing is kind of baffling. 

Some of the humor doesn't work and is just stale. 

Final Thoughts: Not a ground breaking Zombie movie or Comedy, but not terrible, bit I feel I only need to watch this movie once and that's about it.

Overall Grade: C+
