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: 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: 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: THE CIRCLE

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.

MovieBob Reviews: SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

MovieBob Reviews: SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING It’s better than the two Amazing Spider-Man movies (because everything is better than the Amazing Spider-Man movies – yikes!) How much it feels like it “matters” in the grand Marvel meta-narrative and B.
