I feel bad for the audience. That pretty much saw more of the movie again. Than they even saw a live performed show.
John Stamos breaks character more than once to remind the audience who he is. He even shouts out that he should be Prince Eric. Stamos shouldn't do Broadway anytime soon.
It's Queen Latifah who steals the show as Ursula. Eventhough you see more of Ursula in the movie being shown during it. Than you see her on stage.
An ambitious and charming movie about a postman delivering toys from a toy maker. Which has more of Christmas spirit about good will to others. Than most Hollywood Christmas movies.
Noelle (Anna Kendrick) is the energetic daughter of Santa. Who has never had much of a role with her brother Nick (Bill Hader) destined to be the next Santa.
She loves Christmas when her brother is just eh about it and not too excited about being Santa. He takes off when she recommends a weekend to himself. With everyone around blaming Noelle for his disappearance.
The film is pretty much Arthur Christmas but with a girl. Kendrick does bring plenty of charm though and is pretty much a live action version of her character from Trolls.
Noelle will put you in the Holiday mood probably. Even if November 12th is a bit early for a Christmas movie. A predictable but cute, Christmas movie that's often even funny.
Doctor Sleep starts out intriguing, fascinating and a bit disturbing. The film is much stronger though when it doesn't throw in some bad cgi. To become a full blown Shining sequel at the Overlook Hotel.
The villains are both creepy and a bit silly. They eat the fear of kids with the Shining until they have no breath left and die. So they can live longer. Which leads to one of the most disturbing scenes in movie history.
I loved most of the movie until it actually ended exactly how I predicted. The Overlook scene should be the strongest and scariest. It's when the film falls a part a bit with as a I mentioned. Not so great CGI.
I'd still say it's an almost solid movie with fine performances. With some messed up moments that will stay with you.
Just like the trailers hint. Terminator: Dark Fate isn't much of an Arnold film. The movie is well carried by Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes though.
They make another unnecessary Terminator sequel surprisingly good. Rather making believe 3–5 never happened though. I'd like to think they are alternate timelines.
Arnold Schwarzenegger does shine when he is eventually shown though. Hamilton though steals the show about as much as she did in Terminator 2. By being pure badass.
Some might find the film over the top with feminism. If you just sit back and enjoy the ride it doesn't really matter.
Even if the film is a bit repetitive with blowing up the bad terminator over and over and over again. The film packs a punch and is about as good as part 3.
The 90's films were better. There's a good voice cast. However, they don't get much of a script to work with.
The film turned Pugsley into Bart Simpson pretty much. With the most memorable thing about the movie. Is the old school finger snap to theme song.
The Frightners is Peter Jackson's under-rated horror comedy. Siskel and Ebert hated it. Saying the film doesn't know what it is.
The film is entertaining throughout. When a film has comedy, horror and thrills. I am not sure what else they expected.
Michael J. Fox is good but Jake Busey, Jeffrey Combs and Dee Wallace steal the show.
Good actors stuck in a silly science fiction film searching for a plot. Sphere is like a bad 60's B-Movie.
Great fun and great voice work from a fine cast.
A guilty pleasure that isn't the film Joss Whedon wanted it to be. However, the charm of a fine cast makes it entertaining nevertheless.
The A-Team is more fun if you didn't binge watch the show. Before seeing the movie. Is what I did back 2010. In comparison it's not enough like the show.
Watching it 9 years later without the show fresh in my mind. I find the cast a lot of fun together and the film to be quite entertaining.
Both 1922 and Gerald's Game are the best Stephen King, character study adaptations. Since the Green Mile. They are both dark dramas that make you question reality.
Of what is just Wilfred James' (Thomas Jane) guilt coming back to haunt him or actual ghosts. As well as the burden of being a single parent taking care of a son and a farm by yourself.
1922 is more of a character study than a ghost story. Thomas Jane (Dreamcatcher, The Mist) makes you feel for him with one of his most moving performances. Even if you know, you should probably hate him. Or be grateful bad things are happening to him.
The story is a bit all over the place. It's more charming than the first though.
A delightfully creepy family film perfect for the Halloween season.
Jim Belushi steals the show as Steven Seagal pretty much. Like what Richard Roeper said, he was in better shape than current Seagal though.
IT Chapter 2 is a well acted sequel that doesn't always work. The film is a trippy dramatic epic ride even if it isn't always scary.
It is faithful to the book even if some things were left out. Bill's wife has a disappointingly very small role in this version. This film is so long that I am sort of glad they didn't fit her in more than one scene though.
They mostly just chose to make it a story about friendship and love within the Losers Club. Rather than making anyone out of the Losers Club, matter too much.
Bill Skarsgard gets more room to show what he can do in the role of Pennywise. Without so much CGI stealing his thunder this time. Now I can confirm that he is about as good as Tim Curry was.
Bill Hader owns every scene he is in and really does feel like an adult version of Richie. This time we gets to see there's big heart in the wise cracking goofball.
The flashbacks can slow the film down. Since for the heck of it we learn that Pennywise haunted them more as kids than the first film showed. Some of those scenes work and some don't. The ones that do work, at least developed the characters more.
I do admit that some parts made me think "that was kind of dumb." Other scenes are so good that they outshine the bad scenes however.
I enjoyed the movie a lot. I would say though that such a long movie could have probably done the book even more justice than it does. Fans of the book still might be pleased by what was in the movie.
Some critics act like the length kills the movie. IT Chapter 2 is not Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, though. Where it has many opportunities to end but keeps going. Yet that won Best Picture and has way better reviews.
A sleazy family film with duck condoms and bare duck boobs. That of course went over my head when I was little.
So at the time I loved this movie. I always found it fun. Lea Thompson was hot "too hot for a PG movie" while Jeffrey Jones and Tim Robbins were good too.
