All Eyes on Me (a.k.a. The boring Straight out of Compton)

Overall rating: 69% (reminder: all things rated 69% are just, meh)

Best things: Um, I forgot? I just saw this last night! I guess the guy who played 2Pac looked like him…

Ok the story was cool, I didn’t know anything about Tupac before and now I do!

Worst things: The movie wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t great. There wasn’t anything super dumb or terrible, I just got kind of bored. EEK, sorry movie!

Parental Guidance: This is rated R for some boobies, lots of people saying fu@& and other “sentence enhancers.” Don’t bring your kids even if they are adults. That would just be plain awkward!!!

The Mummy – Dark Universe


This was not just another Brendon Frazier remake of weird sand creatures. This was something must bigger and much more expansive. The Mummy was a perfect intro to the dark universe stories paving a perfect path to their debuts. 

Overall score: 76%
Best things: great acting. The Mummy was perfectly creepy. There were plenty of comic relief moments that are actually funny. Tom Cruz is SO good. 

Worst things: You’d think this list would be long due to stupid Rotten Tomatoes striking again on their unwarranted bad reviews, but other than it being a tiny cheesy this movie was awesome. 

Parental advisory: intense characters and makeup. Some zombie stuff. I wouldn’t take my 6 year old but I would take some 12 year olds. 

Wonder Woman


I’m baaaaaaaack! Gosh I’ve been a super loser about writing reviews. I forgot my wordpress password and I just got super lazy about resetting it! Anyway, review time.

Overall score: 100%

Best things: ok freaking Wonder Woman is my new movie crush. (Sorry Jake Gyllenhal) Her fights scenes were the best I’ve ever seen in my entire life. There was a certain scene, set in a war setting, won’t give away too much, but I might have shed a tear I was so inspired.

Worst things: Well guys, sorry to burst your bubble but Chris Pine is not Captian America and nor will he ever become Captain America. Soo, don’t wait the entire movie for him to turn into Captain America.

There are no parental advisorys on this movie. I took my 6 year old and she now wants to be a crime fighting super hero, so yea. Take your kids.

The Shallows


Overall score: 32%

Best part of the movie: The shark was an amazing actor!!

Worst part of the movie: Forced dialogue. Yuck! For some reason when Blake Lively said, “is there anything gnarly out there,” it just made it way too awkward to watch her keep saying stuff after that. Less talking more sharks eating people I always say. 

Parental advisory: One F word. Lots of butt cheeks in swimsuits. (Cute butt cheeks though) and gore…obviously 

The Jungle Book

 

Overall Score: 100%

Good things: Holy crap. This is by far the best live action adaptation I have ever seen in my entire 28 years of living. I cannot recall one moment where I was not in awe. The animals were incredibly realistic, the whole movie was appropriately simple and dark, and I will see this again.
Not so good things: My one and only criticism is they called fire, the “red flower.” Now if anyone of you watch Game of Thrones, you know that’s what they call a girl getting her period. The entire animal kingdom was afraid of the red flower…well me too my furry friends, me too…

Demolition

Overall Score: 100%

Best part of the movie: The script was genius, Jake was perfect (I want to be on him), the story was so relatable and real, and there were 0 cliches. Pure perfection. A true testament of great writing and originality. Well done.

Worst part of the movie: Isn’t Jake Gyllenhaal supposed to come out of the screen and stroke my hair or something? That didn’t happen, soooo…. Yea. Pretty sucky.

Have you ever gone through life completely disconnected? It’s almost like you want to care about certain things but you just can’t. Jake Gyllenhaal’s subtle acting perfectly embodied what it is to be numb. When you think the story was going to go one way, comic relief saved it from an overused cliche that often ruins movies. See this. NOW NOW NOW!!

Eye in the Sky

6b718da25ece921d50af9b5e089fc422_500x735

Overall Score: 75 %

Best part of the movie: I don’t particularly enjoy it when movies try too hard to invoke certain emotions, especially with war situations. I thought this movie stayed away from that completely. I showed both sides of the spectrum and let the audience chose what to feel in the situation given.

Worst pert of the movie: Arron Paul’s co-shooter was a little annoying but nothing too terrible.

This was an overall good movie. It shed a lot of light of what it is to be in the military and how complicated is can be. I gave this movie a 75% merely based on the memorable experience. I actually completely forgot the title like 5 times and had to look it up.
