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.
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.
The last time I enjoyed an X-Men movie was… never and honestly, I thought, before going to see Logan, that it will remain as such forever. Turns out I was wrong and I’m so glad I didn’t give up on the X-Men franchise after it being a big pile of disappointment throughout the years. Because Logan, despite the way he ended up there, proved that sometimes a franchise can change things up so much, that it not only distances itself from the rest of the movies in the best way possible but it also launches itself into an award worthy territory that no comic book movie has ever dared to venture!
During a double feature Sunday, which also happened to be on my birthday (a long long long time ago), I had the pleasure to walk into John Wick: Chapter 2 right after watching Fifty Shades Darker. So having that awful movie fresh on my brain, John Wick had to do some extensive ass kicking to get my mind completely cleansed and ready for the upcoming week. Luckily for me the movie did exactly that and going from a female audience to a male audience felt like going from hell to home.
Here it is, my shameful post where I combine multiple reviews into one because I’m so behind with writing reviews that the following movies aren’t even relevant anymore. Like, all of these movies here are pretty much forgotten, and that includes all those thoughts I had about them that I could have mentioned in my reviews. But now though, for the purpose of this post, with that very redundant title, I will try to remember at least a few things for their mini-reviews.
