    Tried to watch the new 'Planet of the Apes' last night, but I got bored with it.

    Interesting.... watching 'Battleship' on the Telemundo channel. LoL
    why you so serious!

    It 6/10

    The movie is fine. I am too influenced by the book and my own vision of what It is. It's not a kinetic wiggly monster that

     
    is essentially beaten to death via acts of physical violence
    .

    It is many of the things in the movie, the effort was kinda there, but none of the manifestations worked that well except for

     
    the end where Bev looks into the clown's mouth down the throaty hall of teeth into an abyss of sorts. The weird portrait lady was so-so.


    Probably will appeal to those looking for a Stranger Things type fix that aren't really purists about Lovecraftian horror and the essence of what makes It a worthwhile story. That essential quality I could describe but it would require many more words that I hesitate to commit to typing on account of lack of interest and difficulty in finding accurate expression.

    For me It was hollow and weak. I had my hopes up that it would be the real thing but It wasn't.

    Wonder Woman 8/10.

    I enjoyed this flick more than most of the Marvel/DC stuff. Nothing to do with empowerment, I just liked the characters. The story didn't feel too plodding and the visual effects, especially near the end were fantastic! Gal Godot was a convincing Wonder Woman and being insanely beautiful did not hurt. Chris Pine carried the love interest very well and was a fairly well thought out character in his own right.

    Nothing groundbreaking, just a solid super-hero origin story jaunt.

    I know this isn't a "new" movie, but I only get to see those via netflix these days.

    Very fair score in my opinion.

    Justice League 8/10

    After the desaturated and dour Man of Steel and Batman v Superman films from Zack Snyder couldn't find their ways into the hearts of general audiences, Wonder Woman almost single-handedly saved the DC film universe this past June by re-introducing a ray of hope back into it. After a rocky production schedule (Zack Snyder had to step aside during post-production and let Joss Whedon take over due to the death of his daughter) and clear marching orders from Warner Bros. to make this movie not ruin the goodwill that Wonder Woman had built up, Justice League succeeds as a way to springboard the DCEU into a more positive and fun direction. But like the other movies in the Snyder-verse, it's not always perfect.

    The Good:
    • The movie has a brisk 2 hour runtime, and though I wanted to see some things fleshed out more what was there was concise than previous films
    • Ezra Miller's Flash and Jason Mamoa's Aquaman steal the show and provide great chemistry with the established heroes
    • The score by Danny Elfman brings back1989 Batman theme as well as another classic orchestral piece that turned me into a kid again momentarily
    • The other new character, Cyborg played by Ray Fishter, had a nice little character arc and was a good counter-balance to the team
    • Great action scenes, a coherent and simple story, and humor in all the right places marks another step forward with these films gaining wider appeal
    • The 2nd and 3rd act had me grinning ear to ear


    The Bad:
    • Uneven special effects due to reshoots, but not overly distracting
    • Another boring villain that seems to be there just to build himself up and conquer with glowie-things due to "reasons"
    • Some issues with the first act (similar to Thor Ragnarok) where things are moving so briskly you need time to settle in
    • It is sometimes very obvious where Snyder's and Whedon's styles kick in and it can be jarring
    • SOME of the humor feels out of left field and takes away from whatever drama was trying to be conveyed


    But my most favorite thing about this film was
     
    The way they handled Superman's return! After his resurrection he is very confused as actually attacks the team. When Flash goes to make a move to help he realizes that Superman can see him and leads to some of the funniest/craziest stuff in the movie. At one point during the final fight we hear JOHN MOTHER ******* WILLIAMS original Superman score blare. So good...


    Right now on Rotten Tomatoes this movie is sitting pretty low with critics but very high with audiences. My matinee crowd was laughing and engaged throughout the entirety so it will be interesting to see how this performs moving forward. I still prefer the graphic novel sensibilities of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, but if you are going to do a Comic Book movie then this is how you do it. Flawed but fun and shows good things to come. Hopefully!

    Well you have to trust people's reviews that match your tastes. Richard Roeper, for example, is someone that also liked most of the DC films so far (aside from the dumpster fire that is Suicide Squad) and he gave it a great review. Others who have hated the movies so far gave it mixed to negative reviews. Like most movies, you have to judge this based on your tastes. Did you friend not like Wonder Woman either? It is closer in tone to that film.

    On the same token, I heard so many rave reviews for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Thor Ragnarok and I thought those movies where subpar sequels compared to Marvel's other triumphs. My favorite Marvel flick this year was easily Spider-man: Homecoming and I come to find that is 3rd on most peoples lists. So what the hell do I know?

    I'm not here to convince anyone to do anything. I think Blade Runner 2049 was a masterpiece but that movie bombed hard and I would never recommend it to anyone. I can just take these things as they come.
