    Independence Day 2 8/10

    It was a good movie but not as good as the original, Some of the funny moments seemed forced. It also opens a door for a sequel.

    Brent Spinners character is awesome in this movie.

    Warcraft 5-6/10

    CGI was very nice.
    Acting was only so-so.
    The pacing was horrendous, the story butchered and the happy ending made me sick. Didn't even feel sad when Llane died.
    Characters under developped.
    Forced fake feels the movie tries to put here and there.

    It scares me to see that people on MMO-C give it a good note, either blind or nostalgic can't see other explanation.

    The Nice Guys 7/10

    Fun movie
    Good acting
    Even the story is alright considering the focus was humour

    Warcraft - 7/10

    It was entertaining, thought the Orcs were well done, but felt it could have benefited from a longer run time or two movies

    X-Men: Apocalypse - 3/10

    Didn't really care for it. Butchered/useless characters, waste of Apocalypse. Odd plot holes. Tired of seeing Singer's vision and not Marvel's.
    Do I really look like a guy with a plan?

    More or less sums up my feelings for the movie, I just came back from watching it myself. I knew the story going in and I still thought it was bad in the movie, I can't imagine how the hell anyone who wasn't a fan before would be able to follow that shit. I understand, it is an adaptation, there need to be differences, but the stuff they changed either turned into movie cliche or just made no sense.

    Warcraft - 7/10. Some of it was surprisingly good, other sections were a bit lacking in either scripting, pacing, or acting (or some combo of all 3). I enjoyed it more than I thought I would have, looking forward to the sequel. GF (who has never played the game nor had any prior knowledge of the story) loved it.

    Dwarves in this film looked 2x better than the ones in Peter Jackson's Hobbit films, which I sort of found amusing.

    Black Sea - 7/10

    Pretty good movie about a crew of men that go treasure hunting in the Black Sea.

    Independence Day: Resurgence 7/10

    Not a great film, but I was entertained throughout. A few places I find myself rolling my eyes at some of the dialogue, and given the "world invasion" theme, it was a little too us centric (Mind you, I don't expect a US made film to be set outside the US. I did still sometimes find myself wondering if "America! F*** yeah!" was gonna start playing )
    The effects were cool, and I liked the action scenes. Overall, a good popcorn flick, if you're not the type to sit there picking apart a movie (That said, I wasn't going to see this based on the trailers. I only went as my parents shouted me a movie ticket, lol)

    Independence Day 2 4/10

    Meh. Sorta boring in parts, a decent action flick/popcorn film. Just kinda shallow, meaningless and cartoonish. Average. An average summer blockbuster.

    The Shallows 7/10

    Well shot, well directed and very lean. Funnier than I expected but genuinely effective in premise though! Nicely made film. Dialogue and acting were so-so. I just really hated everything characters in the film said. It should have been a nearly dialogue-less movie- I think it would have been bolder and more effective for it too.

    Tickled 5/10

    Eeeehhh. Not nearly as shocking as the trailer makes the film out to be. A interesting little story sure, but I didn't really get the purpose of the film as a theatrical release. It felt like it there was no real artistic ambition or actually anything important being said as a film. 'Sometimes bad things happen. Bummer."- whatever.

    Free State of Jones 3/10

    Super predicable, preachy and poorly plotted. The narrative of the film has a lot of issues. Flashbacks to the present, time jumps in the plotting and characters having motivations totally convenient for the plot. Movie tries a lot of things- only thing that saves it is the ever magnetic MM.

    Neon Demon 8/10

    Wonderful! Vicious and delightfully grotesque. The movie is somewhat absurd but the narrative and style of film making succeeds because the artistic intent is so consistent. Super funny (if you tend toward dark humor) and surprisingly peppy! The movie feels brisk and energetic despite the meandering story and tonal shifts.

    Terrific directing and writing. However, the cinematography is among the year's best- no doubt. Art direction is as expected, top notch.

    My only issue with the film were from an editing POV (might be intentional?) and the acting is uneven (also, maybe intentional). By design or default, I did find those two aspects at times distracting or/& needless.

    Finding Dory 8/10

    Probably the best new movie that I've seen this year. It had a lot of heart and it was entertaining. A lot of care and detail went into it which is more than can be said about most movies nowadays (Warcraft).

    Abandoned (2015) - 2/10

    I couldn't even make it through the whole movie. The acting and pacing we're terrible. The scary moments were predictable. The plot made little sense. And the main actor (woman) did nothing but make me question why she was being completely reckless with her first time on the job. She went trudging into dangerous scenarios with a "just cause" attitude.

    Warcraft: 8/10

    I liked it contrary to a lot of the reviews I enjoyed it. Prior to that I saw Xmen and I would give that 8/10 also.

    Ant Man - 7/10

    Was surprised, I hadn't paid attention to anything about it or anyone else's opinion, but I had assumed it would be as bad as the Fantastic Four revamp.

    Independence Day: Resurgence. 5/10

    The new actors where completely and utterly forgettable, it has been less then an hour since the ending of the film and I struggling to find anything positive to say about them. The dialogue and "humour" was forced by the new actors, and seemed to rely on cliché and tropes from previous film and other films. Only people who really seemed to put in any sort of effort into their characters where Spinner, Goldblum, Pullman and Hirsch, who on their own carried the film, whilst the rest of the actors where not even trying it seemed, I actually laughed when Jasmine Hiller got killed

    The special effects where, as expected to be phenomenal for a Emmerich film, however the story was complete and utter trash.

    Finding Dory - 10/10

    It's been a while since we've had another perfect Pixar movie, but damn this was great. Absolutely flawless, as to be expected of John Lasseter. There's really nothing left to say; it's another damned good Pixar movie! Looking forward to Brad Bird's sequel to The Incredibles as well.

    Great movie, Leo is amazing in it.

    Equals - 8/10

    I really liked this movie. It's a dystopia romance film, where emotions have been surpressed in humans once born. However, certain individuals still get "infected", becoming normal and regaining those emotions. Two of those individuals (Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart) fall in love.

    Nicholas and Kristen really have on-screen chemistry, and I found myself in tears with a few scenes.

    Warcraft - 3.5/10

    Finally watched it. I was actually surprised, I thought it would be worse.

    It's amazing to see everything I love on screen, specially the Grom and Kargath cameos (that say nothing but kick ass). It's also great to see the parts of the story that lineup with the original story we see in the game universe.

    But on the other side, all the horseshit they created for the movie CRUSHES everything.

    - From a fan viewpoint: It's a 6, being generous. The fan service makes it better, but the way they change the lore so badly ruins it for me. I get it the universe didn't need to be EXACTLY the same, but they just downright RAPED some of the major pillars of the story.

    - From a movie enthusiast viewpoint: The CGI is amazing, the orc part is great but the overall movie is a joke. It's a 3/10 from me if I wasn't a fan of WoW.

    Overall, the movie is kinda fun, the easter eggs are great and some of the acting are great and some are terrible (Lothar is Ragnar, there is absolutely no difference. Disappointed in Travis Fimmel). Imo, their biggest mistake is throwing a fuckload of shit into the air and explaining VERY little. People that don't know anything about Warcraft will be completely lost.

    Almost perfect. If they didn't try to shove in some shitty songs into it it would definitely deserve a 10/10. (Was about to write 10/10 but then the ending concert happened)

    By very far the best Disney in years for me.
    Oh, hi.
