Quentin Tarantino's 9th film may not be his best, but it certainly delivers and does not disappoint with its third act, as usual. A former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry in 1969 Los Angeles. By setting his fictional characters within real-life events and making them interact with real-life famous figures of the time like Sharon Tate and the Manson Family, Tarantino pays homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood with his brilliant writing. He might take some liberties and make some... ehem... slight changes in history, but all of it turns out to be extremely satisfying. Intense carnage guaranteed. 😂
In this thankfully last installment of Fox's take on these great characters, Jean Grey begins again to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix and the X-Men will have to do whatever it takes to help her. Most of the action scenes are entertaining and impressive, others just look like a big mess, but the amazing visual effects somehow conceal it. Sadly the plot is all over the place, full of timeline inconsistencies, convenient plot devices and new characters who do not contribute much to the story and only overcomplicate it. A pity it had to end like this.
This movie acts as a new installment of both The Conjuring movies and the Annabelle movies and it is actually a very good addition to the overall franchise. While babysitting the daughter of Ed and Lorraine Warren, a teenager and her friend unknowingly awaken the evil spirit trapped the infamous doll. The variety of new entities introduced here and loosely based on the real cases of the Warrens could eventually make it into their own stand-alone movies, hopefully with a good script. Unfortunately, many deus ex machina moments that are too convenient for this story and the sheer stupidity of certain characters is stressful.
