A very kiddy movie. I really like the animation style. You can really see Genndy Tartakovsky influence in it.

This movie is pretty good. I was bored while watching it but that's because I've seen it before twice, I think, so I already knew a little bit of the story.

I'm watching it again because I want to watch the third one and I don't remember everything about those movies.

Pretty good until the demon shows up. I'm not a fan of entities appearing in movies because it takes away a bit of the suspense. Somehow it is more frightening to imagine it than to see it.

Nevertheless, it's one of the good ones.

I didn't remember anything at all about this movie, but it was a fun watch for sure, a great sequence to the first one. It's certainly more entertaining, as it explores more of the politics and tensions created by the meeting of apes and humans.

And there are monkeys with machine guns riding horses. Yeah, read that right: they ride horses.

It's definitely the worse of the bunch. It was a slog for me to watch it, not entertaining at all, a step back from its predecessor.

They came up with a new character to be funny and he isn't funny at all, the "touching moments" had no weight to me and the whole premisse of the movie was very weak. Even the girl, that seems to have been heavily featured in promotion, had no place in it. The supposed connection between them is non-existent, poorly done.

It's my second time watching it. There's no element of surprise anymore so the flaws are more apparent. I think is the laziest of the bunch, with very dumb choices, like horses on a star destroyer and the force being used for pretty much everything. Leia, which is annoying to me in the original trilogy, became bearable, that's a positive.

But having watched the sequel trilogy again I can see the first movie had a lot of potencial. All wasted.

I watched this movie countless times. It's easily one of the movies I watched the most, enough to know lines and all. And now I'm re-watching it because I want to go through the entire series as I haven't seen the newest entries yet.

The special-effects are very good for a 2003 movie. They were very smart to keep the effect for night time, when the visibility is lower overall. It helped sell the effects as more realistic. The soundtrack is another highlight.

I still don't like the couple Will and Elizabeth, but Jack Sparrow remains as one of my favourite movie characters of all time with he's mannerism, resourcefulness, optimism and grandiouse persona. It has one the best introductions for a character I've ever seen.

I also really like Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa. He's very entertaining, another very strong perfomance.

I'll give this movie a 4/5 because of the couple, which is always cringeworthy to see.

Somehow better than the first one. The constant running around, back and forth between characters in a convoluted plot is very entertaining. Also the couple's plotline is toned-down a bit, much to the movie's benefit.

After almost 3 hours of movie I have to say it is certainly very epic. I had a hard time understanding what Calypso was saying, and Davy Jones sometimes, and I think the movie is too long, but it's good.

It's also good to see Barbossa coming back, he's easily one of the best.

Gold (2016)
This movie is pure gold!

Alright, after that terrible (but mandatory) joke... well, this is a great movie. It was recommended by a friend of mine and it is full of twists and turns, just the way I like it.

I was planning on watching piece by piece, but ended up just watching it in pretty much in one sitting. The story, the acting, both pretty much spot on.

Tomb Raider (2018)
It's better than I thought it would be. I guess there's some kind of expectation that a movie based on a game licence will be bad, but it's not the case with this one.

Also, Alicia Vikander is great in it and I'd like to see more of her on this roll.

The Two Popes (2019)
It's two hours of them talking. If that's sounds boring to you then you should avoid it. To me, somehow, it wasn't that boring.

A Netflix's little hidden gem. It's not the best movie of the decade but it's entertaining enough.

I'm reading the book, so I decided to see how the movies despicted the same events. It was an interesting experience. There are a lot of deviations and it's good to be able to spot them.

The book is very good and I'll continue my reading, but I think I'll read it all before watching the sequel.

The movie itself is good enough, but I guess I appreciate it more now that I read a bit of the book. The story is good and the book is getting me interested in this universe in a way the movie never could.

Gandalf and Bilbo are my favourites by far.

I guess the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series is very consistent in term of quality. I had a lot of fun with this one. I really liked the addition of Angelica and Blackbeard and I think her chemistry with Jack to be on point.

The plot is not as convoluted as in the other movies, but Jack, to me, is played a bit too "Jacky". It felt forced at times. The humour is not exactly on point either for some reason.

But that's it for criticism on my part. I had fun.

To me this is clearly the weakest of the bunch, the charm is almost all gone. I do like Kaya Scodelario in it, but I feel no chemistry between her and Henry Turner. Barbossa and Jack also are no longer that fun to watch. The action is somehow weird and uninspired, lazy I'd say. The premise of the movie is alright, but could be better.

Some other characters come back, but they are not as fun as they used to be. The jokes are few and land much less often, even less than in the last movie.

I won't say is a bad movie, but its quality is certainly a sign of a decandent movie series.

Somewhat enjoyable. It starts very slow, and the jokes are not that funny most of the time, but the reason to watch it is the spectacle.

A new year, a new Anno list.

Same deal: every movie I watched through out the year with a short note, rating and date. The objetive is to watch at least 50 movies this year.
