Red Notice (2021) - Review 

The Good
Gal Gadot when shes fucking in the movie shes great. 

The fast pacing. 

The Dunb Twist and Turns

The Bad
Rawson Marshall Thurber's Direction js terrible, i love what he did with Central Intelligence, but Skyscraper was god awful and bis directin here is in that same level. 

Rawson Marshall Thurber's Screenplay is generic as hell. 

The Action Sequences are lame as fuck especially with a $200 Million budget. 

The Rock just feels like a parody of better character Luke Hobbs

Ryan Reynolds while great at playing himself always is getting very tiresome now. 

Chris Diamantopoulos is a forgettable villain.

Gal Gador is barely in it. 

Final Thoughts: Red Notice is another waste of money from Netflix pleade don't make another Red Notice. 

Overall Grade: D-

Ghostbusters: Afterlife - Review (2021)

The Good
The Cast is great from Mckenna Grace being the best part, Carrie Coon, Logan Kim, and Paul Rudd are great too. 

Jason Reitman's Decent Direction which sadly this is a very weak ditection job frin him since he obviously has made better films then this. 

The emotional beats work at least. 

There are still some good surprises and a great 3rd act. 

The Bad 
The Nostalgia stuff is very lazily done, alot of references to the original film seem desperate. 

Theres barely any comedy while 2016's failed reboot tried to hard to be funny, this one doesn't even attempt to try its just quips like the MCU, but not as good. 

Its too long. 

Now this is pretty much obviously, but still the original Ghostbusters are barely in it and it just feels rushed when they show up for like 10 mins. 

It teases more sequels, now if this movie was amazing or at least great then i'd be happy, but at this point its pretty obvious the original film will always better and that Ghostbusters: The Video Game is still the true 3rd film. 

Final Thoughts Ghostbusters: Afterlife is still 10000000000x better than that 2016 Abomination, but for a movie that is supposed to be Ghostbusters 3 technically  is no where near as great as the video game. 

Overall Grade: C+

Tick, Tick... Boom! - Review (2021)

The Good
Lin-Manuel Miranda's Directorial Debut as he directs every scene with the energy like you are watching a broadway play. 

Steven Levenson's screenplay is great telling the story of Jonathan Larson showing the struggles of his first attempt of trying to get his musical onto broadway to doing the title of this movie as the film goes back and forth from Tick, Tick... Boom to the story and eventually showing real footage of RENT and him not seeing it cause he passed away at 35. 

The Performances around the board are great: Andrew Garfield as Jonathan Larson (who created RENT) carries this entire movie and is just a power house and should get considered for a Best Actor Nomination. Alexandra Shipp, Robin de Jesús, Vanessa Hudgens, Joshua Henry, Mj Rodriguez, Jonathan Marc Sherman, Ben Levi Ross, Judith Light are all great 

Bradley Whitford as Stephen Sondheim is only in the movie for a few minutes, but hes great. 

In the "Sunday" sequence there are camoes from Broadway Actors. 

Every Musical Sequence is Fantastic. 

The Pacing was very fast even for a 2 hour movie that didn't feel like 2 hours. 

The Bad
Nothing

Final Thoughts: I'm a sucker for fantastic musicals and this was one of them and a fantastic directorial debut of Lin-Manuel Miranda who is just having a killer year and a Oscar worthy performance from Andrew Garfield. 

Overall Grade: A+

King Richard - Review (2021)

The Good
Will Smith performance as Richard Williams is fantastic, definitely his best in years and definitely should not be ignored at the Oscars like they did with Concussion. 

Aunjanue Ellis as Oracene "Brandy" Price also gives a phenomenal oscar worthy performance. 

Reinaldo Marcus Green's solid Direction definitely his best so far. 

Zach Baylin's Screenplay that follows the story of Serena and Venus's father. 

The story is very interesting and compleling for someone like myself who doesn't watch Tennis. 

Jon Bernthal as Rick Macci is hilarious and a great performance finally not wasting his talents. 

Other performances are great too from Saniyya Sidney as Venus Williams, Demi Singleton as Serena Williams, Tony Goldwyn as Paul Cohen, Dylan McDermott as Will Hodges, Mikayla LaShae Bartholomew as Tunde Price, Danielle Lawson as Isha Price, Layla Crawford as Lyndrea Price, Andy Bean as Laird Stabler, and Kevin Dunn as Vic Braden.

The Soundtrack is great. 

The Bad 
Nothing 

Final Thoughts: King Richard is carried by a fantastic performance from Will Smith.

Overall Grade: A+

Spencer - Review (2021)

The Good
Kristen Stewart easily gives her best performance so far as Diana, Princess of Wales (née Spencer) who just transforms into this role and hopefully she gets nominated af the Oscars.

Pablo Larraín's Direction as this is his 2nd Biopic on tragic women his first being Jackie with Natalie Portman and now with this and i say this is better. 

Steven Knight's Script as it only depicts 3 Days of Dianna trying to divorce the Bastard Prince Charles and leave a twrrible Royal Family who basically tell what she can or can't do through out the film and if see The Crown tou also see the seeds of it in the early years. 

Other performances are great to from Timothy Spall as Equerry Major Alistair Gregory (based on David Walker), Jack Farthing as Charles, Prince of Wales, Sean Harris as Darren McGrady, the Royal Head Chef, Sally Hawkins as Maggie, the Royal Dresser, Stella Gonet as Queen Elizabeth II, Richard Sammel as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and so many more. 

The Production and Costume Design are fantastic. 

Claire Mathon's beautifully shot Cinematography as the movie is shot on actual film and it shows wonderfully. 

Jonny Greenwood's Score. 

The Bad
Its a little too long

Final Thoughts: Spencer is basically the Kristen Stewart show showing how fantastic of an actress she is and hopefully the Academy sees that. 

Overall Grade: A-

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City - Review (2021)

The Good
Nothing.


The Bad
Johannes Roberts as the Director and Writer who says he is a fan of the video games, but is he really? Cause he wouldn't have made all the characters shit  or made Leon a total loser you know who also was a fan of the games Milla Jovovich and look how her 6 movie series turned out. 

None of the characters are anyhring like their video game counter parts their basically worse. 

While Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield gets the most character development her performance was still bad. 

Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine is very underused and acts nothing like Jill. 

Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy is not fucking Leon like 0 fucking % hes basically the butt of all the terrible jokes definitely the worst portrayal of Leon. 

Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield i say looks like the character, but with the terrible script his performance is awful. 

Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker is a joke. 

Neal McDonough as William Birkin is meh. 

The Flashback Sequence goes on forever and sonething that never even happen in the games. 

Basically mixing both Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2 plots into 1 movie at 1 hour in 47 minutes so you can tell thats a huge red flag and butchering both badly

Theres an actual Jill sandwich joke, but its terrible. 

Its fucking boring nothing happens for near 1 hour and 15 mins

The worst Visual effects i have ever fucking seen in a long ass time. 

It just switches to scene to scene very roughly. 

A Post Credit scene teasing a sequel yet it probably won't get it cause this movie is on track to flop. 

Final Thoughts: Even though its closer to the video games than Paul W.S. Anderson's films, I would rather at least watch those first 2 movies over this cause is definitely nearly on par with The Final Chapter evem tho that film is unwatchable, this is just boring. 

Overall Grade: Fuck You

Encanto - Review (2021)

The Good
Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Stephanie Beatriz as Mirabel gives a soulful performance and her singing ability packs a massive punch. 

John Leguizamo as Bruno isn't in the movie long, but he was perfectly casted as the character and brings more energy to the film his power is a spoiler. 

Orange Is the New Black and Doom Patrol's Diane Guerrero as Isabela, Mirabels's perfect sister is great, she can make flowers bloom. 

María Cecilia Botero as matriarch Abuela Alma is perfect especially when the tragiv past is about her so it helps when you have a great actress bring gravity to the role. 

Great side characters like Jessica Darrow as Luisa Madrigal who has Super Strength, Angie Cepeda as Julieta Madrigal she can heal people through cooking,Wilmer Valderrama as Agustín Madrigal he can like expand his body or sometting, Carolina Gaitán as Pepa Madrigal she can control the weather, Mauro Castillo as Félix Madrigal, Adassa as Dolores Madrigal she has super hearing, Rhenzy Feliz as Camilo Madrigal he can shape shift, Ravi-Cabot Conyers as Antonio Madrigal he can talk to Animals, and Alan Tudyk as Pico a toucan. 

The Encanto house is sorta like its own character.  

Theres no villain for once and the movie works better without having one. 

Colombia's cultural is through out this film. 

The Tackling of the Mature themes like how a victim can become blinded by their anguish and inadvertantly inflict that pain upon their descendents.

The beautiful message of you don't have to have a special gift to feel special you can be special as your own normal self. 

Disney once again kill's it with the Animation especially CG Animation getting better and better. 

The very catchy great songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda with so many standouts like Surface Pressure" (when Luisa sings about her stress and anxiety), the hilariously self-explanatory "We Don't Talk About Bruno," and the fantastic "Dos Oruguitas," which plays during the film's most emotional sequence

The Family Madrigal" and "Colombia, Mi Encanto" are also great as well picking hust ine song for the Ocars will be very hard. 

Barely any Disney Cliches

The Bad
Nothing. 

Final Thoughts: Encanto is the best Animated Film of the year (not counting anime) and will more than likely will win Best Animated Feature at the Oscars. 

Overall Grade: A+
