Amusing enough. Not great, but good for a laugh.

Enjoyable retelling of the Jungle Book story, with crazy believable computer animations and fun updates of the songs.

Good and creepy. Ties back the original, but not a clone. Disturbing and scary.

It was OK. A lot of jumping around, trying to tell too much story in a short time. Some pretty ridiculous pieces, too. Superman's interaction with Lex could have easily circumvented the battle with Batman, but whatever, I guess.

@Alamo w/ Kendra

Entertaining historical telling of an aspect of the space race involving the importance of the black women working there and their competence with math and calculations. Way more interesting than that description makes it sound.

Jason Bourne (2016)
2017/02/04
@home on DVD from library
w/ Kendra and her dad

Boring. For all the action it had, it was boring. Action dragged on and was ridiculous (like a swat car easily knocking cars out of the way without taking any damage.) The computer tracking portions were equally ridiculous, with the technology being overpowered when the story called for it, but then being worthless when the story needed it to be. The story was confusing and dumb and so much of it was pointless.

Still a good movie. A little contrived on why they were fighting, but forgivable.

Still kinda meh with a weak story. Great special effects, but some of the fight sequences with jumping characters looked like they were swinging on wires. Also, dragged on and kinda boring at the end. Quicksilver, though, zoom!

A surreal adventure of a new kid at a strange middle school with his friend. Some of his art is incorporated as cartoons interacting with him throughout. Clever with comically good and bad guys.

Still enjoyable. Some of the parts I had issue with from before were resolved in this second watching, like why he carried the eye for the duration of the film.

Hellboy (2004)

@home on DVD from library.
with Kendra

So, I didn't know much about Hellboy before the movie, and it ended up being "OK". It seemed like they were trying to fit too much into too little time, but it also felt long. Rushed, confusing, and "why didn't they just do this earlier" kind of ending. Glad I saw it, but I think I am more interested in checking out the comic.

Slow-burning horror, but that also made it feel slow and boring at times. Worth the watch, but wouldn't need to see it again. If it was an option, I'd have ranked this 6.5.

Eh, it was OK. It had a good concept, done poorly. Lots of predictable stuff, but then elements that were obvious weren't followed up on.

Noticed a bit of obvious CGI this time, but still mostly impressive. Liked that the Marvel intro is now scenes from their movies instead of flipping comic pages, that they have enough to do that.

And, yes, Cap, I think my patience was rewarded both times.

Dunkirk (2017)
2017/08/19
@Goodrich Kalamazoo 10 - Theater 9, Row 3, Seat 4
via MoviePass
Low dialog, compelling telling of several stories revolving around the evacuation at Dunkirk. The timing of the events isn't consistent in the three stories, making it confusing to follow. Additionally, several of the characters resemble each other, due to uniforms, making it additionally tricky to keep track of what is going on.

That said, it was a good story. The hopelessness and desperation of trying to escape was well conveyed.

A movie that was confused about what it wanted to be. Was it a serious action flick, or a jokey, over-the-top buddy flick? Even though it had some amusing parts and some great action scenes, it tried to be both and wasn't that great.

It also was too long and could have benefitted from some serious editing. Something closer to 90 minutes would have worked better.
