Big fan of Korean cinema, so maybe because I'm partial to it, I would recommend it, even if there are better Korean movies out there.

I've seen some episodes from the show, as a child, I don't remember much of it, because I didn't paid much attention to it. So, when this came out, I didn't know what to expect out of it, and it was slightly better than the way I felt it was promoted.

It's been a while since I last seen this, and I forgot that Besson used to make decent movies, at least. It has what every '90s Besson used to have, the identity of a big blockbuster movie, the stuff that his recent efforts are totally missing.

#614 on TSZDT list.

Generic slasher movie with an interesting idea, but unexplored to its true potential, unfortunately. The acting was terrible, not that I was expecting anything in this department, but it had some ridiculous moments that I couldn't ignore.

Netflix never disappointing, or at least, it rarely does. Jim Strouse directed People Places Things, a couple of years ago. Movie that caught my eye, through its authenticity. Two years later, he gives us The Incredible Jessica James, and every doubt about him not being able to deliver something as original as his previous were shattered. The dude really does his own thing, not really giving a shit about anything else, and I like that.

Non of my friends actually liked this, when they saw it in the theater. I like Guy Ritchie, but after The Man from UNCLE, I had my doubts about this one. From the trailer it looked more like his older stuff, and fortunately, it was. First part of the movie was really great, but something happened about 1 hour in, or maybe I just got tired from the fast editing, but it felt it's not really clicking anymore. Nonetheless, it was what I expected it to be.

I guess the only way this is worth seeing, is on high definition. Because except from the visuals, some good music and some decent action sequences, it was way too cheesy, with bad acting and excruciating dialogue. One would think that by casting Willem Dafoe as a creeper would automatically deliver a win, but I guess I was wrong. I was expecting more from a Walter Hill movie.

I really like this kind of indie flicks. And Sundance it's usually the place you'll find some good ones, every year.
Never really liked Lily Collins, but I guess I'm starting to notice her more. And maybe it's a bit shallow of me, because she didn't do much for the role, except losing weight, and losing weight for a film does not equal talent, but she was actually pretty good in it.

I mistook this movie with another bad one that came out recently, Max Steel, and I was waiting for the dude to transform into some ninja power ranger, and I was just wondering how the hell are they gonna make the transition from this underwater version of Pete's Dragon to that. Huh! When I realized that this was entirely another movie, I got to say, I was a bit disappointed, and kept waiting for the dude to morph into some space cowboy.

Now I know why I haven't seen any recent Cameron Crowe movie. No direction, bad writing, bad acting (except Stone, for some reason), supposed to be some feel good flick, but it was so ridiculous it's hard to even try to take it seriously.

Antic Chinese Power Rangers?
Pretty silly characters, but decent visuals, music, and fight scenes. Not sure if one can ask more from a movie like this. I remember when Yimou Zhang was making really good movie, back in the '90s. Movies like Raise the Red Lantern, Ju Dou, Red Sorghum (yeah, I know, this one is from the 80s), or To Live. I wonder what happened to that guy.

This ranks 21 on TSZDT, and I can't really figure out why. It's definitely not a bad movie, but I think it's far from being a masterpiece of the genre.

I really love this type of movies, set in a jungle, or forest. Movies like Deliverance, The Deer Hunter, of Apocalypse Now. But, unfortunately, The Lost City of Z doesn't have that much in common with this movies, except the fact that are set in similar environments. Really enjoyed the jungle scenes, didn't care much about the rest.

Riddick (2013)

rewatch

I remember watching Pitch Black as a kid, I was no more than 12-13, I was absolutely blown away by it, and by Vin Diesel in general. Later on in life, in my teen years, I watched The Chronicles of Riddick, and again, loved it. Through the years, my taste and watching patterns have changed drastically, but one thing I know for sure, I still have a sweet tooth for Riddick. This movie could have been better in so many ways, but I didn't care, I still enjoyed it at the maximum capacity. Usually when I'm rewatching something, because I'm already familiar with the story, I can focus on other things, like the dialogue. I'm not gonna lie, it had it's moments of cheesiness, just not enough to ruin my experience.

This felt like the director went into a coma in the 80s, woke up in the 90s and did this right away. It was pretty fun to watch, but I don't think it went deep enough. The surreal elements of the story could have been exploited more.

This was way too long, and not that great. It started of pretty bad, with some cringy dialogue, like that early scene in the office, when Lockhart was informed that he's gonna go after the one man that sounded sane, but obviously was described by them as a nut case, duuhhhh. And it just went down from this moment on. By the time it got to the twist, the movie became unintentionally hilarious. Verbinski is a good director, and he did a fine job with what he had, but that screenplay was not even worthy of a try.

Wonder Woman (2017)

After a very good half, the movie seems to fail in the very same way BvS did. Reveling the villain in the last 20 minutes, followed by a to-the-death fight, that is worse than the previous fights, with a very bleak cinematography. Except for the ending, and the style of the last fight, visually and choreographically, this was miles away, in quality, from the last DC efforts made by Snyder and co. Hopefully, will see more of this in the upcoming movies from the DC Universe.
