First of all, why is everyone saying this was a bad movie? Is it cause you want to sound cool? Just let go of your pride and accept that Alden Ehrenreich has a better jaw line than you and that smirk made your heart melt. I seriously reached into my no bias brain for this review and I actually thought it was the perfect addition to the Star Wars Story and was an awesome homage to Han Solo.
Best things: Han Solo has a big personality and a huge presence in Star Wars. Harrison Ford created the perfect character through intense charm, charisma, and mannerisms. Alden had some rather large shoes to fill, and he did amazing. He really captured Han’s pre jaded, bright eyed, and eager self. We were introduced to more of his character development and I think that was just NEATO.
Don’t hate me, but Lando is just a whatever character to me. Has been since I was wee lad. But I kind of like him better after this movie! I thought Donald Glover did awesome!
Also, who saw that part with Darth Maul coming!!!!??? Haha cooooool. If you thought this part was dumb, then YOU’RE dumb!!! Please do your research on Star Wars Rebels, and Darth Maul; the ultimate Sith Lord.
Things I didn’t like: ok, so after learning about some production issues with the movie, the first part didn’t seem to flow as nicely to me (ignorance is bliss). Emilia Clark either went through a drastic character change, we never really knew her at all, or she suddenly went from more of a cockney accent to a proper English accent. I feel like this should have been addressed. Like Han says, “you’ve changed,” and Emilia says, “oh yeah my accent is different because…” I clearly should write scripts.
This was just a cool movie. See it with the same excitement you used to watch Star Wars with and stop picking them apart for crying out loud.

Best Parts of the Movie: I thought this was an excellent example of team work, determination, and not giving up even though we are depressed. I was really inspired to do good after watching this. I thought the cameos were perfectly subtle, and I got a really cute reminder about the first intro to dead pool in The Wolverine! Just a fun little memory. This is a super cute, and very family friendly movie. Please, take your young children! They will love it. ❤
Worst Parts: well, it was funny, creative, and sentimental. I thought it was great. No complaints here.
Additional Comments: The humor was similar to the first one but I kind live for shock value and there was PLENTLY of that so it didn’t feel repetitious to me. The story developed well off the 1rst one.
Parental Advisory: Bad Word Count: 1,300,600 Gore Moments: 7,999 Sexual Inuendos: A Lot. Overall, great for kids and families

Best things: It was pretty dang funny. I think it was really cool how Peter Parker didn’t all the sudden become the perfect crime fighting superhero just cause a spider bite gave him abilities. It was a much more realistic depiction of the high school student who becomes Spider Man.
Worst things: It felt a little long. It was super exciting but it was a fun movie.
Parental advisory: It mentioned the word porn, so if you don’t want your kids to hear that word, then ya. All bad words were strategically cut. There was one part where a guy was completely disintegrated and it was a little shocking. I say take your 13+ year olds.
6 year old review: “I kind of liked it. I hated it.”
Many have asked for my speculation on who Rey is and theories on her family lineage. I spent a whole 10 minutes contemplating the possibility that she is Luke’s illegitimate child, Ben’s, somehow, grandchild(parents unknown) or a natural phenomenon in the force recreating balance.
Here is my actual theory.
Guys, I just don’t care who she is or where she came from right now. I’m just excited for the dramatic reveal in the movie. One day, all you nerds will get the truth and then you can finally sleep at night. So everyone stop asking me who she is, cause I don’t care and neither should you.
Overall score: 99.9% + 200% + 7000000%
Best parts: Ok! This movie was AMAZING! The best word to describe Baby Driver is that it is SO smooth. Every single line, sound effect, special effect, and interaction was impeccably placed and well thought out. The entire movie was rhythmic and the mixing of the sound effects with music was pure freaking genius. I just want to cuss I loved it so much.
Worst things: Some idiot fell asleep during the movie(how?! It was so intense!) and started to snore. It was so loud I got distracted and missed a line. I will never get that moment back. Next time you feel like being an a-hole and snore during the best movie of 2017, don’t.
Parental guidance: yea, don’t take your kids. Lots of crime, blood, murder, stealing stuff. There’s no sex though, so there’s that.
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!!!
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.
