King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

Guy Ritchie is still one of my favourite directors and I’m not backing up on that statement any time soon. Sure, love for him stems deeply from adoring Snatch, but his directing style is still something I enjoy despite his latest movies not being perfect. So yes, I think his style is still on point in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, despite the movie lacking instant appeal and uniqueness. And while I will always have nostalgic appreciation towards Ritchie, for me, this mythical block buster felt flat and empty, even though it tried hard to hit all the right marks.

Wonder Woman (2017)

This review contains spoilers.

A hero among heroes is told to be have formed of clay and brought to life by Zeus himself. This hero is curious, kind and wants to see only the good in the world. This hero also has to earn the right to wield a weapon, to learn how to fight, to become stronger and this against the wishes of someone who wants to keep the hero safe. Most importantly, this hero has also been blind to the horrors of the outside world, protected by the utopia created for these warrior heroes. So when the world comes crashing through into the hero’s perfect life, the need to protect, to help and to care for those who cannot do it themselves, guides our hero to mend the world. But what makes this hero more special than all the others who have saved lives and protected the weak, is not just the kindness and the heart, but the utmost belief that life is full of wonder! This hero’s named Diana.

Snatched (2017)

No, it’s not a mistake, what you’re seeing is the first review on Mettel Ray that is given, or better yet, not given a rating. That’s right, there isn’t a coffee cup under the image above, because this movie gets no coffee cups from me! None! It doesn’t even deserve a half a cup of coffee that I gave it on Letterboxd because I was feeling generous. Meaning, I hate Snatched more than I hate Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker combined because at least the latter made me laugh!

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

A fair amount of time has passed since I saw Kong: Skull Island but considering the fact that I pretty much hated the movie, I figured I should get all that hate out of me before it festers and eats me up alive. It’s not healthy to keep bad thoughts inside for long, and therefore, my very late and not relevant review of this movie. Delivered to you from somebody who hardly remembers anything about the movie, yet wants to share her thoughts about it – it feels like the right thing to do.

The Fate of the Furious (2017)

Fast and the Furious is one of those movie franchises that I’m familiar with but not too comfortable with. Like, I’ve seen some of the movies, none of them more than once and I think I’ll never watch the seventh movie – even though I watched the eighth. And it’s very unlikely that I’ll ever revisit the entire eight movie either, even though this movie surprised me a lot. That being said, I can’t deny the fact that I won’t seek out gifsets of Jason Statham saving a baby in the near future.
