Worst Movies of 2018

giphy-1
Soooo I am super late than usual with this list but I wanted to make sure I shared what I thought were some of the worst movies of 2018. Unlike 2017, I did not see a ton of movies this year. It’s been an interesting year as I have been working on graduating from my master’s program (Which I did whoooo!) but I realized I saw enough movies to make this list. I saw a few more that I wanted to add even after the year ended.
There are plenty of movies I didn’t see that I heard weren’t very good but I can’t pass judgment because I didn’t see them.
Dishonorable Mentions:The Commuter, Teen Titans Go To the Movies, Father Figures, A Wrinkle in Time, I Feel Pretty, Solo: A Star Wars Story
10. The Darkest Minds
f6de3df7-e88f-43ac-b62b-9a34408ca96c-af83f5be-11ea-407f-81f5-3196e2c97809-the-darkest-minds-trailer-release-date-cast
Another unfortunate mistake of a movie that should have been a television show. This movie is so dull and uninteresting and I think such a missed opportunity. I already have ranted enough about it so you can just read the review to see why. I don’t think it’s the worst on the list, it’s just boring.
9. Red Sparrow
Screen-Shot-2018-02-26-at-5.46.32-PM-e1519696339569
This movie was a slog. I don’t think it’s the worst thing ever but it’s a slog. It’s so long and for no reason. I don’ know why spy movies feel the need to be so convoluted. I have no idea what the book is like but the movie felt like it was just something to see Jennifer Lawrence try her hand at. I’m not an accent expert but her Russian accent wasn’t that great, I wasn’t that invested in her character and the movie is overall cringy. I understood what was going on, I even completely guessed the ending because it is what I would have done but boy it took a long time getting there. *sighs*
8. Pacific Rim: Uprising
dw8ecuz27ailk1uqd6ad
I thoroughly enjoyed the first one. It’s not a masterpiece but it was fun to watch and enjoyable. So, my question is, why do they keep making sequels to these blockbusters where the main character (or one of them) is the kid of the hero of the first film and they’re this huge tool? I mean, John Boyega is likable but his character is kind of lame in this film. He’s not that funny or charismatic (which is sad because I think John Boyega is both of those things naturally). The story… lol what story? Doesn’t really kick in until the end otherwise it’s a bunch of people talking. It’s also pretty boring until the end and that’s a shame.
7. Proud Mary
hero_Proud-mary-2018-2
I had to see this twice and I was bored out of my mind both times. I was actually on my phone most of the second time I saw it and kind of fell asleep. I like Taraji, I think she’s a good actress and it was cool seeing her kick butt and she’s great with emotional acting and I loved the stuff with Mary and Danny. BUUUT the movie is boring and all over the place, it’s underwhelming, the side characters are stupid, the action was lame outside of a few pieces and I wanted to like it but I can’t, Taraji can’t even make me like the movie.
6. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
zv914nrnkebfevw6tr2b
Another boring, dull mess. It wanted to be tension filled and interesting but it focuses on stuff that I cannot imagine anyone caring about when the movie should have stuck with the idea of wanting to either save or kill the dinosaurs. The entire second act of the film is just so out of place and all of the characters are stupid. ALL OF THEM. I mean, the ending alone is just ridiculous.
5. Fifty Shades Freed
Christian-and-Anastasia-Fifty-Shades-Freed-fifty-shades-freed-40923143-1200-628
I actually forgot this came out this year lol, but it’s bad. It’s better than Darker whichis just the worst, but it’s still so bad. Again, all of these characters are just so stupid and nothing makes sense. I still need to know why Ana was promoted to that job when she was just an assistant and barely had qualifications. I wish it worked that way. The whole thing with Jack Hyde was lame, you’re mad over something Christian had no control over? Also, you didn’t know he didn’t want to have kids until AFTER you married him? Aren’t all three of the movies taking place within like a year? Pfft. So dumb. Her wedding dress was beautiful though.
4. Acrimony

I haven’t reviewed it yet and I definitely will but anyone who really knows me knows I do not know like Tyler Perry and do not care for his movies. There are a few here and there I like but most of the time, meh. So, I only wanted to see this because of Taraji P. Henson and even she could not save this movie from terrible writing, terrible pacing and  what is clearly a rush job. That’s all I got for this bit, you’ll see what I completely think in the review.
3. Show Dogs
Show-Dogs-still-1024x576
Still can’t believe I watched this. I thought it was something else but alas. Y’all it’s stupid. It’s a kids movie but I can’t imagine a kid actually sitting through this unless they like to see talking dogs. So so bad.
2. Samson
hero_Samson-2018-1
Oh boy. I like this bible story and I love the adaptation with Hedy Lamarr. The acting is poor, the wigs and beards given in the third act of the film are terrible, the entire Samson and Delilah storyline was glazed over. I guess in the end it was about Samson but he wasn’t interesting, he’s a jerk but wasn’t an interesting jerk. Taylor James didn’t have any of the charisma that Samson seemed to have considering how he got away with a LOT. The stuff with the Prince and the King was just so hammy. I laughed a lot when I wasn’t supposed to.
1.  The 15: 17 to Paris
02-770x345
WHAT EVEN IS THIS MOVIE??? Y’all this movie is so bad it’s laughable. The first mistake was taking this 5-minute incident and turning it into a feature length. Second mistake, casting the real guys to play themselves, they are not actors and it shows. The dialogue is bad, the acting is bad and I just cannot. It’s a nice idea to honor the guys who did a great thing but not this movie. Not at all.

Movie Review: Proud Mary (2018)

Taraji P Henson

First 2018 movie review of the new year! Whoo! Anyway, onwards!
Summary: Mary (Taraji P. Henson) is a hitwoman working for an organized crime family in Boston. Mary’s life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes awry.
Pros:
Cast and Characters. There are really only two characters in this film that matter. There are a few supporting characters outside of Mary and Danny but meh.
  • Taraji P. Henson as Mary Goodwin. Mary is an assassin, she’s been keeping an eye on Danny, she finally finds him and takes him in to protect him. She also wants to get out of this killing life. All you need to know is that Taraji is good, she’s very good.  She handles emotion so well, she can be awesome and badass in one moment, but then she can turn around and cry when she needs too and she really manages to put some emotion in scenes that I just did not think were worthy of her talents. It was great to see her do action like this, but I wanted to see her do more action because I think she could do it. She has a great fighting face lol. I liked her interactions with Danny,
  • Jahi Di’Allo Winston as Danny. He’s the kid in the film, he’s had a hard year, and he comes across Mary after she finds him. Danny is a bit street smarts, got a smart, potty mouth and he goes toe to toe with Mary a lot of the time. They’re very similar. He has a lot of tragedy in his life, so a lot of that haunts him but he is able to make it day-to-day. I’ve never seen this kid in anything, and I thought he was good. There were a few times where his acting wasn’t that strong but I think overall, he manages to do a good job and hold his own in this movie.
Mary and Danny. I think the strongest aspect of this film is definitely the connection between Mary and Danny. That’s the part I was most invested in. I liked how she was a bit awkward with him at times, even while trying to be a friend, or trying to be motherly. It’s an instinct that some women have and it was easy to see that she was trying to act on it. Danny had a little smart mouth, and he had a hard life in the last year which she is a bit the cause for and I really enjoyed their dynamic. Both actors had really good chemistry and I would rather just watch an entire movie with the two of them. I wish it was just the two of them.
The hallway action scene. There’s a scene towards the end of the movie where Mary finally gets a really cool action scene and I very much enjoyed it. It was choreographed okay, the violence was good, and the music choice… of course.
The opening credits. The opening scene I think for one, is one of the best scenes due to the aesthetic and the feel of it. It definitely has that 70s blaxploitation feel to it, or very much in the vein of Pam Grier’s Foxy Brown. The yellows and oranges, the edits, it was really cool and it should have been a set up for how the film would be.
The Idea. I think the idea behind this movie is really cool. A hit woman who gains a conscious when it comes to a young kid, and does whatever she can to save him, I think that’s really cool. Plus, the idea of being an homage to 70s black films, I thought was really unique to be handled today. I really wanted that.
Cons:
The Supporting Characters. So wasted. There are some interesting characters in this film but it doesn’t care about them so they’re either just not there most of the time, or they’re only there to serve a purpose and when their purpose happens, you’re like “wait… what? Why have that actor if you’re going to do that to them? That’s dumb”. Being this film is about leagues of assassins and families and what not, everyone in this movie is the stereotypical character that is usually in this film. Blech.
The Story. I think the film loses the story in the middle of the film. It wants to tackle too many things that I think it begins to lose sight of what it wanted to do in the first place. I get it, I get what it wanted to do but it’s so cliché and old that it just feels like the usual and it should be exciting to watch because we never really get to see a black woman in a film like this. Or what this film should have been. Basically, it tackles the whole cliche idea of the assassin wants to get out but the leader doesn’t want to let them out thing and that becomes a running thing in the movie and I just rolled my eyes a lot. I really wanted it to focus on Mary and Danny and while it was there, but they wanted to do this thing with warring families and just ugh, then it was the getting out thing, and there was this thing about family and loyalty… just ugh. All over the place. If anything, they should have stuck to the storyline of Mary feeling guilty about Danny and wanting to help him, but she knows she can’t do both, so she wants to get out and then there’s this whole thing about loyalty. That was in there but it sort of showed up out of the blue.
The Music. Outside of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” song, I can’t even tell you if there was any other music to help the film. I don’t remember any of it and the music I do remember was so ineffective that it did nothing for the film. Music is a big part of the movie and I don’t think it did anything that enhanced the movie. If you remember the film Four Brothers, that film had awesome music and this movie in a way, feels like that one, the music in that is memorable.
The Action. So, I wasn’t necessarily expecting like physical action be to like over the top or anything, it was more going into a room and shooting people with silencers and what not, but I think, especially considering that really good scene in the hallway, that this film could have benefitted from having Mary do some physical action, to see her actually kick butt. There is a MAJOR missed opportunity towards the end, when she faces off against a character who apparently is important to her, or at least was and she should have faced off against him instead of what happened. There is also a scene where Mary goes running, and she shoots someone, there SHOULD HAVE BEEN A FIGHT THERE!! I mean are you kidding? There were so many times where she could have physically fought there but didn’t. It would have been so cool and it was set up like it.
Underwhelming.  I was really bored watching this movie, I didn’t expect much but I at least expected a good time and I didn’t really have that. I thought the story was underwhelming, the action was underwhelming, even the violence my friend enjoyed felt underwhelming. Mary and Tom’s encounters were very underwhelming, there should have been more between them, not like romance or anything, but like that chemistry of two people who grew up together and I didn’t get that. Just… very underwhelmed.
Overall, I really wanted to like Proud Mary, it had this feel to it that I thought I would enjoy but I didn’t. Taraji P. Henson is the reason to see this movie as she is good in her role, this movie is alive because of her, without her, it would just fall completely flat, but she helps it but she’s way to good for this flick. Her chemistry with the young actor who plays Danny was really strong and I was more interested in seeing their story together compared to everything else. I also did really like that one action scene towards the end of the film, that was really the only time I thought they allowed her to really show off her skills as an assassin. The opening credits were really cool and the idea behind the film could have been great but unfortunately the story is all over the place, and completely cliché. There is not enough action in it to allow Mary to show us that she is this awesome assassin, I’m sorry, pointing, ducking for cover and shooting is not enough for a film that used its trailers to bank on the action. The music is also very forgettable minus Tina Turner’s iconic song, and it’s very underwhelming and boring. I wanted to like it but I just didn’t.
Rating: 2 out 5 stars.

Anticipated Movies of 2018

anticipation-08

2018 is going to be an amazing year, that’s what they all say. I’m interested in seeing the amount of movies that come out this year. I think I did better in 2017 than I did in 2016 and I hope I do even better in 2018 with seeing the movies I want to see and being a reviewer and doing my thing.
I’m sure there is also going to be a lot of movies that pop up during the year that won’t be on this list but that’s fine because this list contains the movies that I know about.
So, just like last year, I’m going to do my most anticipated movies by month.
January
**Jan is usually a hard month because generally everything that comes out is terrible. Most times the good ones were released limited in December, but hit large theaters in January IE: Split, Hidden Figures. So we’ll see what we got.
Molly Game’s, The Post– were limited releases but I believe they come out everyone Jan 5. 2018. I want to see them both. Most likely Oscar contenders.
Proud Mary – Jan 12.- She is a hitman, who works for an organized crime thing, and when she meets a little kid, things change. It looks interesting, I like Taraji P. Henson and I’m interested to see her in a role like this. She did something like this with Smoking’ Aces, so I’m interested to see her do even more than that in this movie.
February
BLACK PANTHER- Feb 16. : T’Challa, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. I MEAN this movie needs no introduction. It’s BLACK PANTHER! I have been following the Marvel Studios movies since the beginning, I have read the comics and I think this character is so awesome and interesting. So is his story. The cast! THE CAST IS AWESOME! My husband is in this movie and I’m excited to see him be the villain. I’m so ready.
Annihilation Feb. 23: A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply. This looks SO GOOD! Plus, Oscar Isaac is in it and that’s all the prompting I need to see a movie he’s in. Also this is done by the same people who did Ex Machina and that movie is fantastic. So yep, signed up.
March
A Wrinkle in Time – Mar 9: After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him. I read this book as a kid, and I remember loving it. I need to reread it as an adult, but I’m excited. It looks great, it has a great cast, I love the diversity in it and I think it could be something wonderful. I’m excited.
Thoroughbreds- Mar 9Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost. It looks really good. The two lead actresses, especially Anya Taylor-Joy, have been good in what I’ve seen with them. I’m curious.
Tomb Raider- Mar 16: Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared. I love the new video games, I’ve played both of them and thoroughly enjoy them. I think Alicia Vikander is a great actress, it’ll be interesting to see her do an action role like this and while I know a lot of people are like “meh”, I’m interested to see what happens and how the movie turns out. I know it’s based on the newer games, so Lara is younger, I’m interested in that.
Ready Player One- Mar 30: When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg. Hopefully, I’ll read the book first, doubt it, lol and I have no idea what it’s actually about but the trailer makes me excited. Every time I see the DeLorean car from BTTF, I get excited, plus hearing the “Pure Imagination” instrumental in the theme song, I’m so curious. SOOOOO ready.
April
A Quiet Place- Apr 6: A family lives an isolated existence in utter silence, for fear of an unknown threat that follows and attacks at any sound. This might be one of the two horror movies I want to see. The trailer is so interesting in that it’s silent the entire time because the family has to be silent. I’m interested plus Emily Blunt is great.
New Mutants- Apr 13: Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. It’s X-men… I’m down.
May
Avengers: Infinity War-May 4: The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. NO INTRODUCTION! I’M ALREADY STRESSED OUT! I cannot wait. Again, I’ve been with these movies since the beginning and I’m ready to see what happens, I know I’m going to flip out because people (probably Steve *cries*) are gonna die. I can’t take the pressure. I’m excited. I can’t wait!
Untitled Laika Project- May 18: No details on this movie yet but I LOVE LAIKA (Coraline, Paranormal, The Box-Trolls, Kubo and the Two Strings) and I have no idea what it is but I want it. They denied me last year so… bring it on!
Solo: A Star Wars Story- May 25: Han Solo and Chewbacca’s adventures before joining the Rebellion, including their early encounters with Lando Calrissian. So I’m interested because I like Star Wars, this probably a little less anticipated but anticipated. Donald Glover is a great casting choice and I think the actor playing Han Solo could be good, but who knows, so we’ll see. Plus, it’s Star Wars.
June
Deadpool 2- Jun 1: This description is super long lol so I didn’t copy it, but I enjoyed the first one so I’m interested in the second one. It’ll be great to see what Ryan Reynolds does next with this character he was born to play.
Incredibles II- Jun 15: Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is left to care for Jack-Jack while Helen (Elastigirl) is out saving the world. I don’t know how I really feel about this synopsis and if it’s true BUT I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE I CAN HARDLY STAND IT!! I love the first one to pieces, it’s my favorite Pixar movie and I can’t wait. I hope they really get the family in there like they did the first time. I know they’re not older like the rest of us, which is cool, but if they do a Incredibles III, Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack should be aged up and kicking even more butt!!
July
Ant-Man and the Wasp- Jul 6: As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past. I mean, it’s Marvel and I liked Ant-Man so I’m interested, plus I can’t wait to see what they do with Janet and how she comes back. I’m curious.
Mission Impossible 6- Jul 27: No idea what the plot is but I love these movies. So I’m down.
August
September
Robin Hood- Sept 21: A gritty take on the classic Robin Hood story. I love Robin Hood stories AND I LOVE TARON EGERTON! So enough said.
October
November
X-Men: Dark Phoenix- Nov 2: Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world. I liked the young characters in X-Men: Apocalypse even though the movie was not very good. I want to see Sansa become the Dark Phoenix and I want to see the newer actors in the iconic roles… get rid of Mystique for a while though please *rolls eyes*.
The Nutcracker and the Four Realms- Nov 2: A young girl is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice. I love the Nutcracker and I’m interested to see what Disney does… it looks too much like Tim Burton Alice in Wonderland which I don’t care for, but I have hopes they fix that.
Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindelwald- Nov 16: The second installment of the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ series which follows the adventures of Newt Scamander. Anticipating it but not like super excited, I’m interested in seeing what they do. The first movie was meh, so I hope this one handles everything better, plus I love a lot of the cast members.
Wreck It Ralph: Ralph Breaks the Internet- Nov 23: 6 years after the events of “Wreck-It Ralph”, Ralph and Vanellope, now friends, discover a wi-fi router in their arcade, leading them into a new adventure. This first one was very surprising and I enjoyed it quite a lot, so I’m excited to see where they’re gonna go with this. Plus, there is supposed to be a whole thing with the Disney princesses and I can’t wait to see what that is.
December
Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse- Dec 14: The plot is secret still but the TRAILER LOOKS AMAZING!!! The graphics are amazing. Oh my goodness, I’m excited. Plus it’s Miles Morales.
Mary Poppins Returns- Dec 23: In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. I love the first one, it’s a classic so I’m interested in seeing what they do. I think Emily Blunt will be a great Mary Poppins and LIN MANUEL MIRANDA is in it. So yeah it’s great.
Not really Anticipating but want to see: 
January
12 Strong- Movie about the horseman during the war. It looks interesting and I like Chris Hemsworth.
February
Samson- Feb. 16: After losing the love of his life to a cruel Philistine prince, a young Hebrew with Supernatural strength defends his people, sacrificing everything to avenge his love, his people, and his God. This looks horrible and I want to see just how bad it is lol.
Every Day- Feb 23: Every Day tells the story of Rhiannon (Angourie Rice), a 16-year old girl who falls in love with a mysterious spirit named “A” who inhabits a different body every day. I read this book and I liked it a lot. I’m interested to see how they handle the story. Hopefully they won’t try to be too heavy-handed with some of the stuff I thought the book was being heavy handed about. It’s a movie based on a YA book so while the book was good, we’ll see if the movie can enhance the story.
Game Night- Feb 23: Max and Annie, have a weekly couples game night. It gets kicked up a notch when Max’s charismatic brother, Brooks, arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. It looks fun but I also have a feeling it’ll be super stupid, so sign me up. (this also says it’s coming out in March sooo who knows lol)
March
Red Sparrow- Mar 2.: Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to ‘Sparrow School’ a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. But her first mission, targeting a CIA agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations. It has a good cast, though it seems like it should have been the Black Widow movie instead, since Natasha has a similar story in the comics. It’ll be interesting to actually see Jennifer Lawrence do action stuff, that’s not running and shooting arrows.
Alpha- Mar 2: A story of survival set 20,000 years ago during the last Ice Age. It has Kodi Smit-McPhee and I really like him, he’s a very good and likable actor. I saw a trailer when I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi and it doesn’t look like anything special, but I’m interested to see the bond between him and the wolf (I love wolves).
Love, Simon- Mar 16: Everyone deserves a great love story. But for Simon it’s complicated: no-one knows he’s gay and he doesn’t know who the anonymous classmate is that he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, scary and life-changing. It looks interesting, I think it’s based on a YA book, at least it feels like it. I think it’ll be good, but I’m not in anticipation for it. Plus, I like the young actors in this, mostly Katherine Langford and Nick Robinson.
Pacific Rim Uprising- Mar 23: Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost, reunites with Mako Mori to lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots, including rival Lambert and 15-year-old hacker Amara, against a new Kaiju threat. I enjoyed the first one for the most part, and I like John Boyega… sooo interested.
April
May
A Star Is Born- May 18: A movie star helps a young singer/actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral. I have no idea what this movie is, but Anthony Ramos is in it and I’m interested in seeing him in a movie. Also said to be released nationwide in October.
June
Ocean’s 8- Jun 8: Debbie Ocean gathers a crew to attempt an impossible heist at New York City’s yearly Met Gala. I’ve never seen the original or the remake with Clooney, but it looks interesting. It has a good cast.
Sicario 2: Soldado- Jun 23: The drug war on the US-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro. The trailer looks good, I want to see it. The first one was phenomenal, such an intense ride. Hopefully the intensity remains now that we’re no longer looking through the eyes of an innocent viewer.
July
Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation- Jul 13: Mavis surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury Monster Cruise Ship so he can take a vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. I like the other two, they’re really cute so I’m gonna see this one.
August
The Equalizer 2- Aug 3: Plot unknown. A sequel to the 2014 film, “The Equalizer”, which is based on the TV series about a retired agent who’s a hired gun for vengeance. I think the first one was awesome, so interested to see what happens next.
September
The Darkest Minds- Sept 14: After a disease kills 98% of America’s children, the surviving 2% develop superpowers and are placed in internment camps. A 16-year-old girl escapes her camp and joins a group of other teens on the run from the government. Based on a YA book, but it sounds interesting and I like Gwendoline Christie, Mandy Moore and Amandla Stenberg.
October
Venom- Oct 5. Plot unknown. As of right now I’m curious, I’m not excited I just wanna see some stuff.
The Jungle Book OR Mowgli- Oct 19: A human child raised by wolves, must face off against a menacing tiger named Shere Khan, as well as his own origins. I like this story, and while Disney did their version, I’m interested to see this “darker” take. So, yeah.
November
December
Mortal Engines- Dec 14: Many years after the “Sixty Minute War,” cities survive a now desolate Earth by moving around on giant wheels attacking and devouring smaller towns to replenish their resources. I know it’s based on a book, never heard of either until I saw the trailer once and it looks interesting. It’s being directed by Peter Jackson and he has a knack for having a great directive eye in which his films always look good.
Aquaman- Dec 21: Arthur Curry learns that he is the heir to the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, and must step forward to lead his people and to be a hero to the world. I enjoyed Jason Momoa in Justice League, so I’m interested in seeing what this film will be like. For one thing, I hope the underwater scenes are much better than they were in JL and I hope they let Mera do cooler stuff like she actually can do in the comics AND that they figure out some way to have they converse underwater without having to always do the water bubble thing because that’s lame. So, curious lol.
Bohemian Rhapsody- Dec 28: A chronicle of the years leading up to Queen’s legendary appearance at the Live Aid (1985) concert in 1985. I don’t know much about Freddie Mercury, though I do like Queen a lot, but Rami Malek is in this so I’m interested and I love him.
