IT (2017)
Boyfriend made me see it after I walked out the first time (body horror, lads), sat through the whole thing and... the clown was absolute jokes. It was decent, I enjoyed it, and I want liked Beverley’s key necklace. I prefer psych horror but the kids were brilliant actors, but I’m glad I saw it - B+

you FOOL, that movie is DC, not marvel

As for my movie, my most recently watched is Kingsman: The Secret Service - which I'd have to give a 9/10. One of my favorite movies, with some of the best action scenes I've ever seen. Also, Colin Firth shooting people.

Thor: Ragnarok- :hobohodo: Another classic by DC. I enjoyed it even though I didn't see the previous two. They could've balanced the comedy and the action a bit more though.

I might have enjoyed it a bit more if I had known it was a comedy beforehand. During the first fifteen minutes I thought I was watching a high budget abridged parody. Not that it isn't funny, it just creates a lot of mood dissonance. The Doctor Strange bit? Hilarious. Following it up with
Spoiler:
Odin's death?

Yeahhh, no.

Justice League- :ron: I'm a but surprised that I actually found this a little dull. Admittedly, it has its good moments, but they're far and few between. The humour was also not as good and the ending was pretty lacklustre. Kind of surprised I liked Ragnarok more but at least it kept me intrigued the entire way through.

Which is a pity, because I would've actually liked seeing some of these characters have their own movie. The Flash especially.

Contracted Phase II
It's actually not TERRIBLE because it's interesting and weird. Still pretty bad, but watchable bad.

6 / 10

The Greatest Showman- :will: Hot damn, this one was great. I'll admit it had its fair share of flaws (the awkward pacing, the hasty ending, the CGI animals, Zac Efron's inning voice) but the well choreographed musical numbers, wonderful message, lovely atmosphere and Hugh Jackman really sell this one for me. Seriously, Hugh Jackman has so much charisma it's ridiculous.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, a sequel to the first one — should have never been released, bad film, everything fun and exiting in the first film is absense or dull.

4/10

The Greatest Showman - not only did it make me get off my ass and start training in circus again, but I honestly loved it all the way through. I enjoyed the songs, the aerial performances, and Zac Efron's singing - Hugh Jackman was brilliant, but Zac Efron did it for me. Enjoyed every second he was on screen. I have a membership thing for the cinema so I'll probably see it again.

(I can see why critics weren't too sure, but personally, I can't fault it because I had so much fun watching it)

Black Panther- :will: - Incredibly refreshing movie. Hardly even felt like a superhero movie watching it, somehow. It had a really good story, some nice characters and the message was just beautiful and delivered just as beautifully. I had a few tiny nitpicks at first, but the back half was just amazing and more than made up for it. A must see even if you don't like superhero movies that much.

Mr. Bean's Holiday- :will: - I'd honestly forgotten how enjoyable Mr. Bean can be. Absolutely loved this movie from start to finish, never a dull moment! I was laughing the whole way through, almost. My favourite part is by far the climax. It's just so hilariously fitting!

Ooh, that one. I will always remember when I saw it at the movies because it was the same day my little sister was born :edgey:

Speaking of which, the latest movie I saw was Coco, with said sister. I loved it. First thing first, it looked absolutely stunning, especially the land of the dead. The story was great too. When it comes to plot twists, my bars are pretty low when it comes to animated movies, I always get surprised and impressed by them, and this was no exception. It was quite sad, too. At one point I could hear some poor kid behind me gasping for air for crying too much x) Also, it was quite refreshing to see a children's movie deal with a heavy subject like death in this way and not shy away from it while still keeping the movie charming, happy and funny.
I'd rate it 4 or 5 out of 5. Right now I can't find a flaw in it, but I'd have to watch it again to trust my judgment.

Tomb Raider (2018 w/ Alicia Vikander). Being a huge fan of the new iteration of Tomb Raider, I really enjoyed this movie as well. I was surprised that its plot is essentially an alternate story of the 2013 game, in which Lara goes on an expedition to find the lost kingdom of Yamatai. In the movie, she goes out in search of Yamatai because she deduced that that was where her father disappeared to.
I really liked Alicia's portrayal of Lara, able to be a badass like Lara always is as well as showing weakness when Lara thinks she's in over her head. I'd give it a 7.5/10 or 8/10. I think the climax could have been longer.
One thing I think the movie did a great job in over the game is how much killing Lara does. Both the game and the movie have Lara's first kill as a focusing point, and it is obviously very traumatizing for her. The issue with the game is that she goes on to kill hundreds of people, with no concern for the morality or the effects it could have on her. I suppose that's because it's part of the gameplay, but the narrative doesn't support this. Anyway, there's significantly less of that in the movie.
Spoiler: Movie, 2013 game, and Rise of the Tomb Raider
So compared to the 2013 game, I think the game has a better story since Lara has a better arc, minus the narrative dissonance with the killing. However, the movie does a better job at setting up the overall plot for future instalments than both Tomb Raider 2013 and Rise of the Tomb Raider. There is an open-ended ending in the movie with Lara accepting to continue her father's fight against Trinity. Rise of the Tomb Raider introduces Trinity as a major antagonist for the following game quite sloppily, almost retconning it into 2013's story. I say "almost" because if you collect all GPS caches in the 2013 game you get a hint that an agent of Trinity came to Yamatai. But it's revealed in Rise of the Tomb Raider that they had knowledge of the events of the 2013 game, with no means of how they did it.
Edit: I think Lou Ren deserved more screen time in the movie. He was set up to be the male lead but got pushed aside once Lara found her father. He does make essential contributions in the second act as well as save Lara at the end, however.

Emoji Movie- …I don't know if my normal rating system can really be applied to this movie, so I'm going to have to think of something different for this. While I think of it though, here's my review.

Spoiler: If you're actually scared of being spoiled on this then I dunno what to tell you
So, overall thoughts on it? …Don't kill me for saying this, but it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Don't get me wrong though, it was still bad to the point where I kept all the curtains closed and the door locked (no one must know), but I don't have as bad an opinion on it that others do. It's a pretty easy target anyhow, but it was…eh.

The story is almost the same thing as Foodfight. That's already a brilliant start to the whole thing. All these objects you thought were inanimate are actually real and live in their own world, but when something bad happens to them the dumb protagonist and his even more moronic sidekicks have to save their world from being ruined while this terrible female villain tries to stop them. In the end, everything goes back to normal, the protag gets their girl and their dumb message is forced in. I'm pretty sure they both end on a dance number too. Horrifying shit.

The best part of the story was just how technologically inaccurate it was. Some things you could handwave by saying 'oh it's just a movie so it's creative license' but some stuff makes no sense, like making internet trolls just beings inside the phone?! The end is an absolute copout too. The dumb kid Alex or Arthur or whatever goes to get his phone deleted because it starts malfunctioning all the time but when Gene EXPRESSES HIMSELF (BECAUSE THAT'S THE THEME OF THE MOVIE, GET IT?!) and now is malfunctioning in a way that benefits Austin, he just goes "oh okay I guess this is good now" and unplugs the phone, WHICH ALSO BRINGS BACK ALL THE DELETED DATA?! Which allows those idiots to live I guess. Except Smiler, I dunno what happens to her after she gets crushed by her dumbbot.

The characters were hilariously entertaining in how they were all assholes. They make all these jokes which actually bring negative messages. Like when Gene and Hi-5 leave on their great adventure and the red wagon comes and asks if it can go, Hi-5 just says "TALK TO THE HAND LOL" (which is just another way of putting his middle finger forward) and they abandon him. And then there's this joke about how Jailbreak, now revealed to be a princess, can't just whistle and have birds come to her because that's a stereotype but afterwards, it turns out that she can do that! Hi-5 even comments on it. Great job, movie! Now I know to always believe stereotypes, good message.

The "romance" between the lead characters, if you can even call it that, was utter garbage. Watching the movie for the first time I could tell just when the writers decided 'Yep, this is the part where the fall in love now'. And when Jailbreak says that she doesn't want to just be in a romance and wants to pursue her own thing, Gene goes "waaaah, she doesn't wanna be with me" and 'meh's out. How sour of him, as well as a good message. Remember, kids, if you ask someone out and they say they aren't interested, you should definitely be angry with them because it's their fault that they don't love your perfect self!

The animation was subpar. Not much to say, it did its job without being bad or in the way. I guess you could say it was…meh.

Jokes were hit and miss, which surprised me because there were actually hits at all. I don't actually remember what they were, given, but I remember liking them so they probably existed as well. Biggest surprise for me was they only had four poop jokes (not including the butt jokes, there were about two or three of those). Incredible restraint on their part to only stop there.

Er, that's mostly all that comes to mind. Terrible movie, but somehow fun to watch (and riff on). Even the popcorn didn't taste that great.

Erm, right, ranking. Well, since they only made four poop jokes…then my ranking is 4 poop emojis!

Image Image Image Image

Out of what depends. If you're enjoying yourself riffing the thing, it's probably out of ten. Otherwise, in terms of genuine enjoyment, it's probably out of hundred. That's my dumb review that no one asked for, I guess.

The Big Clock- :will: - I really enjoyed this one. It combines the noir genre with a hint of comedy. The plot is pretty good and keeps you on your toes at all times, with a pretty unique solution.

The Maltese Falcon- :ron: - Hmmm. Maybe it's because I watched this one immediately after the last one, but this didn't quite have the effect I thought it was going to have. It was good, I guess, with some pretty memorable moments, but it just falls apart at the last half. The villain is so dull and uninteresting, I honestly thought I was going to fall asleep. And the last half is just boring, filled with just trite exposition and hardly any action. It was a disappointing ending, to say the least.

Round 2 of Noire.

Murder My Sweet- :edgey: - Good movie and all, but it can be pretty all over the place. The story keeps changing at every turn and it's hard to keep track of anything, really. I do like how it comes together at the end, though. Pretty neat, if you ask me.

Double Indemnity- :will: - By far my favourites. This is the epitome of what a noire film is. I love the plot, it seems beautifully woven. The dialogue is excellently written. The personality of the protagonist is also very interesting, especially with how he changes throughout. Definitely a must see if you like noire films.

Kiss of Death (1947 version, not 1995)- :hobohodo: - This one was good, don't get me wrong, but it just doesn't feel like a noire film. What's with the title, anyway? It doesn't even have anything to do with the plot. The story is good, though. I like the protagonist enough and the villain as well. The end was also really intense and I was on the edge of my seat during the entire climax. Still better than the Maltese Falcon though

Round 3 of Noire, wow.

The Killing- :edgey: - This was a pretty fun and entertaining movie. The main problem I have is that it takes much to long to actually get to the heist, focusing more on the planning than the execution. Surprisingly though, that makes the botched execution that much better. I loved how everything came crumbling down right at the end.

The Asphalt Jungle- :will: - Now this one pretty much rectified my main complaint with the last one, namely that it focuses on the aftermath of the robbery rather than the planning. It goes on a little long, sure, but it's pretty entertaining seeing the police taking their own time to arrive to the conclusion. Pretty fun.

The Detour- :edgey: - This one was also all over the place, but definitely felt more noire like than the previous two. The cheapness of the film, strangely enough, actually adds to the quality. I love the "murders" in this film as well and how well "executed" they are. It's great how everything went so wrong just from that one car.

Bonus before Noire:

Avengers 2-Age of Ultron- :hobohodo: - This movie was fairly enjoyable...well, the end, anyway. The characters are nice and all. There's a lot of foreshadowing here more than anything, and I felt pretty bored during the whole thing.

Captain America-The Winter Soldier- :edgey: -This reminded me more of Wonder Woman than anything, but it's much more depressing...and also more unrealistic. Still a good movie. I like Cap a lot.

And now back to Round 4 of Noire!

Sunshine Boulevard- :edgey: - I liked this movie, though the person I was watching with most decidedly did not. The characters are pretty interesting as well, especially Norma. The ending was...eh. Probably the weirdest part of the whole thing. Can't exactly feel bad for the protagonist.

Kiss me Deadly- :will: - There we go. This movie has the proper spirit for the noire genre, setting up intrigue as it goes along. The villain wasn't that great, though, and the ending felt weirdly timed. It ended on the climax rather than the aftermath. Other than that, good, enjoyable watch.

Random Superhero movies tangent?

Captain America: Civil War- :ron: - Yeaaah the only thing redeeming about this movie was the fight scenes. Everything else was just kinda boring and the story at the end was just…what?
Spoiler:
So Captain America stops Iron Man from killing Bucky even though he killed his parents? What the eff? That's twisted!

This movie also kinda foreshadows other movies instead of being itself, like Spider-Man and Black Panther. Wasn't impressed by this.

Guardians of the Galaxy- :will: - This was just great to watch. It's hilarious, entertaining, and weird as hell. The entire movie, from beginning to end, is so weird I genuinely laughed out loud at some parts just because of how our of place they felt. I also really liked the pretty unique group dynamic and how all the characters kinda hated each other. Rocket and Groot were by far my favourites, though.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2- :edgey: - It still has the energy and weirdness of the first, but I'd say it's probably weaker in the parts where it gets more emotional. It feels more out of place there and Rocket was also just kinda out of character for now reason. They made him a jerk, even moreso than he was in the first movie. I did like how they expanded on Yondu more though, that was pretty cool.
