MovieBob Reviews: LIVE BY NIGHT

MovieBob Reviews: LIVE BY NIGHT Doesn’t that sound like a pretty good movie?And yet, Live By Night is a failure on almost every noteworthy level.

MovieBob Review: xXx - THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE

MovieBob Review: xXx - THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE In case you needed a refresher: The premise of the original xXx (meant to be pronounced “Triple-X”) was that a U.The premise of this “new” xXx is that Vin Diesel, leading teams of C and D-list pseudo-celebrities through proudly ridiculous action movies has made Fast & Furious enormously popular with global audiences.

MovieBob Reviews: SPLIT (2017)

MovieBob Reviews: SPLIT (2017) But I’m coming at this quite sincerely: Split is a genuinely good movie.Night Shyamalan genre movie opening in January, so you should probably be thankful for “good.

The Ending of SPLIT is Pretty WTF...But Worth It

The Ending of SPLIT is Pretty WTF...But Worth It **** What needs to be understood about Split’s ending before anything else is that the film itself is playing a bait-and-switch game with its genre.The main girl surviving only because he glimpses self-inflicted scars on her bare skin and identifies her as a fellow survivor of childhood abuse.

MovieBob Reviews: RESIDENT EVIL - THE FINAL CHAPTER

MovieBob Reviews: RESIDENT EVIL - THE FINAL CHAPTER ” Let’s be really clear about this now that we’ve, apparently, reached the end of this ride: The Resident Evil movies aren’t really very “good.So if there’s disappointment to be had in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter it’s that they haven’t really opted to end on any kind of high note.

MovieBob Reviews: THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE

MovieBob Reviews: THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE In any case, now Ovredal is now back with The Autopsy of Jane Doe – and good news: He’s still got it!It turns out Trollhunter was no fluke: Ovredal is the real deal, and The Autopsy of Jane Doe is one of the most original and satisfying horror movies to come along in a good while.

MovieBob Reviews: THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE

MovieBob Reviews: THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE The LEGO Batman Movie sets out to prove that a one-joke supporting character from that same toy commercial can carry their own feature in the same basic vein.Next up, The LEGO Ninjago Movie will try to prove that trick will work when the comfort zone of nostalgia being appealed to only dates back about (number) years.

MovieBob Reviews - JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2

MovieBob Reviews - JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 It’s another John Wick movie.The John Wick franchise is based on Keanu Reeves having a really, really, really specific pop-cultural screen presence that lends itself really, really, really well to elaborately-choreographed, slickly-photographed gunfight sequences and… not a lot else, honestly.

MovieBob Reviews: A CURE FOR WELLNESS

MovieBob Reviews: A CURE FOR WELLNESS Estimated conservatively, I’d say there’s about a 50/50 chance you’re going to hate A Cure For Wellness.On the other hand, there’s about the same chance you’re going to love it.

MovieBob Reviews: THE GREAT WALL (2017)

MovieBob Reviews: THE GREAT WALL (2017) The Great Wall is a very, very, very silly movie.While there, they discover that (contrary to history) said Great Wall was built not to repel The Mongols.

MovieBob Reviews: GET OUT

MovieBob Reviews: GET OUT But the notion that Get Out is Jordan Peele’s (or any director’s) debut feature film is unbelievable even when you know it to be an absolute fact.But just from the trailers you already know that Get Out is supposed to be a horror movie “about racism” – but that’s something of a coy oversimplification.

MovieBob Reviews - KONG: SKULL ISLAND

MovieBob Reviews - KONG: SKULL ISLAND If said film also decides to a giant monster movie?And I was overall very much onboard with Kong: Skull Island.

MovieBob Reviews: BEAUTY & THE BEAST (2017)

MovieBob Reviews: BEAUTY & THE BEAST (2017) The Jungle Book remake was an interesting attempt to decouple the original story from Kipling’s implicit racism and explicit colonialist romanticism.Beauty & The Beast, on the other hand, has no such pretense – likely because it doesn’t think it needs to.

MovieBob Reviews: POWER RANGERS (2017)

MovieBob Reviews: POWER RANGERS (2017) Full disclosure: I was about 5 or 6 years too old when Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first hit to have any kind of real nostalgic appreciation for it.What I can tell you is that, yes, Power Rangers effectively delivers on the promise of a big-budget blockbuster version of an episode of the original series.

MovieBob Reviews: THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS

MovieBob Reviews: THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS At this point, the Fast & Furious franchise represents something like the longest ironic joke ever told to global movie audiences.When exactly did a crew of street-racing reprobates and (literal) highway-robbers transform fully into a team of justice-seeking mercenaries for hire?

MovieBob Reviews: FREE FIRE (2017)

MovieBob Reviews: FREE FIRE (2017) A movie premise doesn’t get much simpler than Free Fire.There are about 13 criminals of various stripes meeting in an abandoned warehouse to make a gun deal.

MovieBob Reviews: THE CIRCLE

MovieBob Reviews: THE CIRCLE ” we’re expected to be innately terrified of the Millennial workspace aesthetic.Hell, Uber’s recent transgressions alone could fill up a movie, probably.

MovieBob Reviews: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

MovieBob Reviews: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 As has been noted elsewhere, it’s getting to the point where Marvel Cinematic Universe movies can only be properly reviewed against each other.They have a lot of difficulty with Number 2’s.
