Michael Bay’s fifth Transformers installment ‘Transformers: The Last Knight,’ is that big, bloated, over-seasoned, 5-layer beef burger with everything on it–it can’t possibly be good for you, but you can’t seem to stop eating it.
‘Wonder Woman’ (2017) is comic-book-movie proof that there is a God and she’s probably a woman named Gal.
This new Pirates of the Caribbean adventure is a fun ride that you will likely end up forgetting two years from now, but while you are inside it, it is worth living each magical moment.
There’s double the humor and there are explosions and flashy sequences, but James Gunn really focuses on their story more than anything else. He goes to great lengths to examine each character’s story and struggle.
‘Kong: Skull Island’ is a wildly enjoyable spectacular. It is ridiculous in just the right way, and has its feet firmly planted in the roots of the monster movie genre.
‘Logan’ is finally the Western film it deserves to be. With director James Mangold paying homage to all of the tropes, he has turned a comic-book film into a modern film classic and a comic book character a true modern hero.
The film just makes him out to be crazy but also strangely patient. If he wants to do real harm to this family, he’s going about it in a needlessly complicated, roundabout way.
The film basically contrives a crisis so that these men can have more motivation to do the jobs that they have already been hired to do.
This is a very straightforward, almost classic action film that is enhanced by a certain sense of self-awareness.
The film may have sense of humor about it, but it’s no excuse for the rampant laziness at play.
