The Midnight Sky - Review (2020)

The Good
Even though the movie is a fucking mess Clooney's Direction is at least great. 

George Clooney is at least great. 

Felicity Jones & David Oyelowo are decent. 

Visuals are amazing. 

Alexandre Desplat's probably Oscar winning Score. 

The Bad
The Terrible Narrative Structure. 

Characters you dont give a shit about. 

The movie doesn't know if it wanta to be a Sci-fi film or a Survival Film. 

Pacing is a mess. 

Its Predictable. 

Final Thoughts: This is a more Style over Substance kind of film, which if i were you just watch it for the Visuals and Desplat's score. 

Overall Grade: C

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm - Review (2020)

The Good
Sacha Baron Cohen is amazing again as Borat. 

Maria Bakalova's stand out performance which she could get nominated for a Oscar is what im hearing. 

Jason Woliner'a direction. 

Its definitely hilarious. 

The Rudy Giuliani scene. 

A great commentary like the first movie but now during 2020. 

The hilarious ending. 

The Bad
It feels less real like the firsy movie cause like how do you not know who Borat is. 

Pretty much like the first movie. 

Final Thoughts: Borat 2 suprisingly  works which is rare like since most comedies sequels don't work.

The Little Things (2021) - Grade

The Good 
Denzel Washington and Rami Malek's performance are great but nothing award worthy. 

John Lee Hancock's Direction 

The Atmosphere. 

Thomas Newman's Score

The Bad
Jared Leto's performance is shit.

It definitely almost feels like Seven, but no where as good as that movie, where that movie felt gritty, dark, gross this feels very clean cut. 

All the supporting actors are just there. 

John Lee Hancock's Hancock's Screenplay 

Its just not very interesting.  

John Schwartzman's Cinematography just makes everything in this movie very nice looking and clean cut. 

Its too long and boring

Final Thoughts: The Little Things has 2 great performances in a very forgettable and only a 1 time viewing movie that just tries to rip off a hetter movie of Seven. 

Overall Grade: D+

Malcolm & Marie - Review (2021)

The Good
Zendaya and John David Washington are amazing I just wish they were in a WAY better film. 

Sam Levinson's Direction. 

It being Black & White. 

Washington's Rant on a critic. 

The Bad
Sam Levinson's Screenplay is horrendous its literally all over the place. 

Its literally a whole movie of a couple bickering which is headache endusing and when they stop they randomly do it again and its just annoying from beginning to end. 

They keep walking around everywhere its so tiring. 

The Pacing. 

Final Thoughts: While Malcom & Marie isn't great it does give us amazing performances from John David Washington and Zendaya.

Overall Grade: C

The Mandrake

The Actual Rock Songs are good. 

It has some charm.

The Animation is ass even though its "Studio Ghibli's" first CG film it looks ugly.

Earwig is a annoying terrible character. 

Satoshi Takebe's Score is awful. 

A Cliff Hanger....

The Good 
Nothing

The Bad
My god where to fucking start

Sia's AWFUL Direction and AWFUL Screenplay 

The depiction of Autism if offensive and disgusting 

I honestly don't know what i jusf watching.

Awful music from Sia and Labrinth and awful music numbers dream things what ever. 

Kate Hudson and Leslie Odom Jr. are awful prob ruining Odom's oscar winning chances. 

Maddie Ziegler gives one of the worst performances i have seen. 

Final Thought: This may be the overall worst movie of 2021 cause i can't see what could be worse, the fact the the Golden Globes nominated this shows their a joke.

Tom & Jerry - Review (2021)

The Good
Obviously Tom & Jerry are the best parts.

The fun antics of Tom & Jerry.

Tom's Should Angel and Shoulder Devil

The other animated classic characters from the cartoons. 

The animation on the animated characters. 

The Bad
The Modern Music just doesn't fit with Tom & Jerry. 

Whenever Tom & Jerry are not on Screen i just don't care really about the human characters cause obviously the human characters were huge in the cartoons (Sarcasm).

Chloë Grace Moretz is very annpying. 

Michael Peña is just there. 

Ken Jeong is just not funny. 

Final Thoughts: if watch this just wanting the Tom & Jerry scenes then you may love it, but overall a movie it just doesn't work for me cause they keep forcing the humans to show up in a movie called Tom & Jerry. 

Overall Grade: C+
