Saw Guardians 2 as well 5/10

I just felt meh. The jokes were practically the same as in the last movie, just with different words. The story is very by the numbers, in the end everyone just got their little closure moments and nothing was at all surprising or new or inspired.

Also, I am quite sure I am far beyond the point of diminishing returns for Christ Pratt and his shtick. And the whole storyline about
(click to show/hide)
storyline just gave me a big "ughh" sensation.

It was still an amusing little flick, but I kinda regret paying a cinema ticket price for it instead of just watching it on Netflix a bit later.

Agreed.  I did like the Nebula/Gamora development.  Rocket Racoon's dialogues were a mess and too many jokes were duds.

I heard that MCUSA has a spy on board Covenant.  >:(

Is that a gun in your pocket?
4/10

A town full of wives tries to strong arm their gun loving husbands into giving up their guns by refusing to have sex with them. Its predictable and cheesy, but it's good background noise.



Good kids
7/10

A group of teens who have behaved all their lives decide to finally cut loose and live a little. Trying drugs, alcohol, and sex for the first time. Its smarter than you would assume it would be from the tagline, but not too much smarter. Plus I cant be mad at any movie with Zoey Deutch in it, she is so adorable.


Let's kill wards wife
3/10
The only laughs I got from this movie was the nonchalant way they deal with killing wards wife. They treat it like they are planning brunch, yet talking about killing a woman and dismembering her body. Most characters are pretty unlikeable. A few actors from scrubs are in it (Turk is playing Ward)

Before I Fall (2017): Kind of a Groundhog Day where the romantic comedy has been replaced by teen drama (having recently watched 13 Reasons Why, that kind of popped into my head, or maybe Life Is Strange, though it isn't on the same level as either of those). It's a little slow at the start, but I liked it for the most part. The last few scenes are a bit too saccharine though, and it somehow doesn't fit the tone of the rest of the movie very well. It's also quite predictable, especially once the mystery (which I did enjoy) has been largely unraveled. 7.5/10

EDIT: Coincidentally, it also stars Zoey Deutch.

For me, the Nebula/Gamora thing fell flat due to the horrific, hammy acting of Karen Gillan.

Also, I HATED baby Groot, who was just shoehorned into the movie to sell toys, something Marvel has not done before.

Beauty and the Beast (2017): Pretty decent live action remake, though it doesn't really add much to the animated version. I do prefer live action to animation most of the time, though. Did find myself drifting off during some of the musical numbers; I guess I'm just not a huge fan of musicals - it takes me out of the movie a bit when people start singing about their lives without any apparent reason (though I wouldn't say I particularly dislike musicals either, and it actually bothers me slightly less in animated movies). And in fairness, I've been a little distracted by other things lately anyway. 8-/10

La La Land (2016): As long as I am watching musicals, I figured I might as well watch this one. It was pretty great, though I did have the same "drifting off during musical numbers" issue again.

How about the Hulkbuster especially?

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: 7/10

Entertaining but the writing was extremely on-the-nose, the acting was oft hammy but not in a fun way and Groot was assertively toyetic. 

I liked Pratt's dancing intro in Guardians 1 because it simultaneously worked as characterization and world-building on top of holding my attention during the credits and establishing the film's feel, style, etc.  It did a lot of work. 

Groot's dancing intro felt like an executive saying, "People liked the first one's dancing intro, do it again.  And use Groot, you should how much merchandising we've got lined up!"
Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

It's funnier if you put Vin Diesel there instead of Groot.  ;D

I lol'd. Saw it three consecutive days.

I'm not sure I understand the context here, but are you saying you watched the same movie three days in a row?

That beats me.  I've never watched a move three days in a row, but there are three movies I've watched two days in a row (at the theater, no less): Sleeper, Chasing Amy, and Dogville.  Chasing Amy is a bit embarrassing, but I think the other two are defensible.
