Da 5 Bloods - Review (2020) 

The Good
Spike Lee's Direction obviously. 

The Performances all around are fantastic from Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Johnny Trí Nguyễn. 

Spike Lee really doesnt shy away from showing really Graphic scenes and Violence which makes his movies more interesting 

Powerful opening scene. 

The Aspect Ratios change from Current Day to Vietnam 

Terence Blanchard's fantastic score. 

The movoe has alot of intense scenes, but there is one scene that is incredibly gut wrenching. 

The Bad
It maybe 15 minutes too long. 

Final Thoughts: Spike Lee does it again giving us another urgent and powerful message in a fantastic movie, it may not be for everyone, but if your a Spike Lee fan like myself your gonna love it. 

Overall Grade: A

Spider-Man 2 - Review The Positives: The story.  The story IMO was excellent.  It was well written, structured and detailed.  I also liked the fact that it implements some comic accuracies

Its not embarrassing John Wick is fucking awesome 

I just finished watching the Deadpool movie.  I am very impressed with this film.  Ryan Reynolds did a magnificent job as Deadpool.  FOX really stepped up their game from last year.  The action, actin

Palm Springs - Review (2020)

The Good
Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti performances were very strong same as always for J.K. Simmons

The chemistry between the 2 main stars are really great. 

Max Barbakow's direction is great especially more since this was his directorial debut

The supporting cast were also really strong to. 

The Screenplay is witting and original for a time loop movie (which i didnt even know until i saw the trailer.)

The pacing is fantastic with the run time of like 90 mins almost as it never slows down or drags. 

The Bad
Nothing. 

Final Thoughts: Palm Springs is another Time Loop movie and if seen one then you seen them all, but it still does inyeresting things by adding a romance element into, revenge elements (you'll see), comedy elements, i can see why this was highly bid at Sundance cause i love this movie 

Overall Grade: A+

The Good
Nothing lol 

The Bad 
Everything the Acrion, the Directing (same director of Secret Obsession) its just all bad

Its painfully boring. 

Its just like every stereotypical thriller movie of this genre same shit every movie, same crazy person if it be a White Man or Black Man, Sex Scenes here and there, bad acting, boring as shit, tries to be Psychological but it isnt every damn time. 

Another terrible Netflix movie.

Final Thoughts: You can just tell by the poster its gonna be bad, but if you seen Secret Obsession then you already know i dunnp which i hate more. 

Overall Grade: F

The Kissing Booth 2 -  Review (2020)

The Good
Joey King is at least decent but if you seen The Act then you would know thag miniseries showed her best acting and this is just wasting her true talents. 

The Bad 
Its more of the same dullness as the first movie they really didnt change shit.

Except now theres new guy and girl to try and mess with the lead couples relationship and really you just dont give a flying shit. 

Poor Molly Ringwald is back

Everyone acts like a cartoon character nobody feels real just like the first movie, especially The OMG girls their just a bad. 

Awful unrealistic teen drama

Lee's Girlfriend they make into such a bitch in this one. 

Teasing a 3rd movie jesus christ. 

Final Thoughts: Another movie wasting Joey King's talent.

Overall Grade: F

The Tax Collector - Review (2020)

The Good
George Lopez is at least good. 

Michael Yezerski's Score

The Bad
David Ayer's Sloppy Direction, defi,definitely shows End of Watch and Fury werw flukes. 

Bobby Soto is awful in i guess his first feature film and i dont wanna see him again. 

Shia LaBeouf is horriblly miscasted and a perfect example of White Washing, Dumbass David Ayer. The man also got a real tattoo for this movie, why? 

Awful writing and dialogue 

You dont give a shit about anyone. 

The Action is horrendous 

So many quick camera cuts that it reminded me of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, awful cinematography, and awful editing. 

The Final Showdown is an afterthought. 

Final Thoughts: David Ayer shit streak continues from Suicide Squad and this much much worse this is basically straight to DVD trash. 

Overall Grade: F

365 Days - Short Review (2020)

Its bad basically you should know its bad, this is definitely worse tthanthe 50 Shades of Shit Trilogy and sadly were probably gonna get 2 mpre movies cause this is based off the first book of a trilogy

Btw after people get murdered a romance song that would come from 50 Shades pops on.... why?

It tries to make kidnapping and rape a turn on for women LOL sorry thats not a turn of for anyone dumb Poland.

Theres more aex scenes than 50 Shades but again their not sexy at all their just uncomfortable to watch.

Overall Grade: Fuck You

The Old Guard - Review (2020)

The Good
Charlize Theron is always amazing, easily the best thing in the movie.

There is surprisingly good character development and world building.

Alot of the main team do a really great job.

It is unique in its own way.

When there is action sequences its really great.

The Bad
Merrick (Harry Melling) as the villain is AWFUL not only is his cjaracter generic bad guy he acts like a cartoon character.

Why is Chiwetel Ejiofor in this he literally does jack shit.

The Script is very heavy on exposition.

It really wants to build a franchise its just not really that strong enough of a movie to make me care about one.

Theres not alot of action sequences

Final Thoughts: While its not gonna be a memorable Superhero movie, its at least warchable, and maybe if it gets a sequel they can hopefully improve on it.

Overall Grade: C+

Project Power - Review (2020)

The Good
Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Jamie Foxx easily are the best parts of the movie.

Dominique Fishback is really great.

Its definitely different

Thankfully it doesnt tease a sequel which is good cause this movie isnt that great.

The Bad
Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman's meh direction

The Villains suck ass, Biggie (Rodrigo Santoro) is not memorable and even worse Gardner (Amy Landecker) is barely in the movie despite being the main villain.

Courtney B. Vance is wasted big time in the movie, he only gets a few minutes of screen time and does nothing.

Too much Social Commentary

The Third Act of the movie is horrible and incredibly underwhelming.

The Visual Effects are hit or miss.

Final Thoughts: Project Power is pretty forgettable Superhero movie and really wish the Catfish directors would stop making movies lol.

Overall Grade: C-

Bad Trip - Short Review (2020)

The Good
Eric André, Lil Rel Howery, and Tiffany Haddish are funny

The Hidden camera stuff is pretty funny but to be honest how do you not know who Tiffany Haddish is. 

The Bad
Its pretty basic and thats about it nothing really special about it. 

Saying White Chicks is good cinema lol no. 

Some of the pranks are not really funny.

Final Thoughts: Its decent to meh thats about it 

Overall Grade: C

Unhinged - Review (2020)

The Good
Russell Crowe is a great villain. 

Caren Pistorius is also great. 

Derrick Borte decent direction. 

Carl Ellsworth Screenplay which he also wrote Red Eye which these type of thrillers be good at. 

Some suspense is there with the help of David Buckley's score. 

Its at least never boring. 

The Bad 
The opening credits is completely pointless trying ti explain to us thst there is road rage in the world like we don't know. 

Alot of the side characters are fucking idiots. 

The logic in this movie makes no sense like one character find a window. Roke and instead of calling the cops he grabs a knife like are you dumb or if someone takes their seat belt off like a dumb fuck. 

The Logic really goes out the window in the last act of the movie.

Cheesy 90's one liners which come out of no where. 

Final Thoughts: Unhinged is an alright campy movie with Russel Crowe's fantastic performance helping the movie. 

Overall Grade: B-

Ava - Review (2020)

The Good
The Performances are surprisingly grear from Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell, Common, Geena Davis, and John Malkovich.

Some of the family drama works

The Bas
Tate Taylor's direction has really fallen since The Help and Get on Up.

The Action scenes are painfully awful so many different quick cuts.

Matthew Newton's meh script i mean you want me to believe John Malkovich can do all crazy action movie moves.....

Its painfully boring.

Bear McCreary's pretty meh score.

Final Thoughts: Sadly Jessica Chastain can't save this movie for being forgettable.

Overall Grade: D

Greenland - Review (2020)

The Good
Ric Roman Waugh's great direction as he builds the tension for the first 2 acts. 

Gerard Butler and Morena Baccarin's Performance carry this movie. 

Its more Suspense Thriller than Disaster Movie for the first 2 acts which is surprisingly good. 

There was a nice bit of nice levity before shit hits fan. 

The Bad
The Last Act goes into cliche Disaster film. 

The Disaster feels like its copying Armageddon and Deep Impact 

King Bach is wasted. 

Some of the side random people you meet later are idiots. 

Visual Effects are ass. 

Final Thoughts: I'm pleasantly surprised j thought thjs would be another awful disaster movie and got a pretty good Suspense Thriller part Disaster movie with 2 great performances. 

Overall Grade: B-

Rogue - Review (2020)

The Good
Man i wish there was something good in this cause my god......

I guess the message at the end that Poaching is bad, but we already know its bad and it probably will never stop sadly

The Bad
M. J. Bassett's awful direction no surprise since she made Silent Hill Revelation this feels like a movie that should be on Syfy. 

M. J. Bassett and Isabel Bassetr's AWFUL Script. 

Everyone is fucking horrible in this movie, yes even Megan Fox who has been good recently on TV is back to shit.

Everyone is an idiot in this movie. 

People just die in this movie and you really don't give a fuck. 

The Lions CGI Is like Syfy level garbage. 

A Helicopter blows up and I'm sure i saw blood when it blew up.......

The 20 or more minutes of extraction sequence and its awful.

The Elephant Scene..... what the fuck was that. 

ruined Everybody by Backstreet Boys

Final Thoughts: This is what i get for not watching the trailer, cause jesus christ. 

Overall Grade: F-

Bill & Ted Face the Music - Review (2020)

The Good 
Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter chemistry is still there and they play their characters again perfectly, which their story arc is trying to steal the greatest song from themselves and save their marriages. 

Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving who play their daughters are really good and their side story trying to get great musicians to help with their Dad's song. 

William Sadler as Death is perfect just like he was in Bogus Journey. 

Erinn Hayes and Jayma Mays return to as their wifes and their still good. 

The Call Backs from the previous 2 films. 

Kid Cudi being this guy that knows all was quite funny. 

Its a safe movie and theres nothing wrong with it. 

It has all the right feels. 

It's the last movie in the trilogy thankfully a true ending to the franchise

The ending is excellent. 

The credit sequence is aweaome. 

The Bad
The main Terminator robot trying to kill Bill and Ted is just a joke for laughs. 

Amy Stoch's Missy marrying someone joke is tiresome at this point. 

Its pretty predictable. 

It just ends basically. 

Final Thoughts: Bill and Ted Face the Music isnt amazing, but its still really fun to watch. 

Overall Grade: B+

The New Mutants - Review (2020)

The Good
The Concept is great thats what got all of us excited for it..... back in 2018

The Bad
Its a Whole lot of nothing cause the first half of the movie is just boring.

Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt, Henry Zaga's characters are not interesting.

Alice Braga's character you already know what shes gonna do cause of the dozen's trailers for the past 2 years.

The characters accents are awful

They mention the X-Men it just feels forced.

For a horror .ovie it really lacks horror.

One characters powers you see coming cause she can make your fears come true, feels alot of copy and paste from It.

3rd act is just some awful CGI Fest.

Final Thoughts: The Last movie in the Fox X-Men just like Dark Phoenix ends with a dud obviously, now we wait till Marvel Studios does their X-Men movies more properly.

Overall Grade: F

Tenet - Review (2020)

The Good
Christopher Nolan's Next Level Direcfion obviously dude always kills it. 

John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, and Elizabeth Debicki give the best performances in the film. 

Aaron Taylor-Johnson has a really great small role in the film. 

The Intense Fight Choreography. 

The Core Concept is Original. 

Its really not that hard o understand on first viewing to some it may be, but for me i got it. 

Ludwig Göransson's exhilarating score. 

Jaw Dropping Set Pieces like the Airplane scene. 

The Bad
Kenneth Branagh is basically just generic villain 101. 

Michael Caine could of been in the movie at least longer (Nit Pick)

John David Washington could of had a better name hes littlery just called the Protagonist. (Nit Pick)

Editing is some parts were a mess, but it clears up. 

Final Thoughts: Nolan delivers another great film, I wouldn't say its one of his best until i watch it a couple more times and think about it, but its still another great movie from him.

Overall Grade: A-

Doesn't surprise me.  The film looked really good from the trailers.

Mulan - Review (2020)

The Good
The Cast are af least fine.

Irs at least not a lazy remake.

The villains are the standouts in my opinion.

Harry Gregson-Williams' Score is fantastic.

The Bad
Some the acfion sequences are not good.

No Mushu

Jet Li's voice is dubbed and you can tell.

Theres no fun music that helped the animation have life.

Its 30 minutes too long

Horrible Editing.

The Visual Effects are awful with a $200 Million budget

Final Thoughts: Mulan (2020) is okish but mainly forgettable unlike the animated movie, this is definitely not worth $30 on Disney+ (thankfully I didnt pay for it)

Overall Grade: C

The Babysitter: Killer Queen - Review (2020)

The Good
Judah Lewis and Jenna Ortega are great and their chemistry works. 

King Bach has the best Jokes and theres more of him which is good. 

Robbie Amell is still good. 

The kills and gore are still pretty good. 

The Bad
McG direction definitely lacks in this one. 

Emily Alyn Lind tries to bard to be like Samara Weaving's character. 

Bella Thorne's character is even stupider. 

Hana Mae Lee is still over the top bad. 

It tries roo much with the comedy and awkwardness 

References are very dated

Its really really dumb in not the good ways the first movie was 

The one twist it has it literally dumb. 

Its really predictable. 

It takes FOREVER to get to the Horror and Gore. 

The side plot with the parents trying to find their kids is focused way too much for as comedy. 

Alot of the music just feel out of place. 

Samara Weaving is in it, but like not really. 

The one fight near the end is really out of place. 

Final Thoughts: The Babysitter: Killer Queen is a huge disappointment is everyway possible, this is a major ignore even if you want to see what hapoens next. 

Overall Grade: D-
