In what’s been a very atypical year, it seems fitting for atypical movies to be released. Such is the case of Bill & Ted Face The Music, the final entry in the Bill & Ted trilogy. It has just the right amount of nostalgia to keep you interested if you were already a fan of the franchise but does very little to attract new fans or to stand as its own independent movie.
While Palms Springs is far from perfect, this rom-com with a “stuck in time loop” twist is a clever, funny, and well-written movie with two charming and likable leads that have real chemistry.
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is a typical Will Ferrell’s movie. Not all jokes hit the target and it’s a little overlong and predictable, but it is also a feel-good and entertaining comedy that has its moments.
Filled with mediocre performances, bad jokes, bland villains, paper-thin characters, dull action sequences, and soap opera level story, Bad Boys For Life is a dumbest and worst movie of the year so far.
With its non-linear structure, interesting story, memorable characters, funny dialogues, very good soundtrack, excellent performances from the cast and energetic directing style, The Gentlemen is well worth your time. The main problem with The Gentlemen is that Ritchie made this type of movie a couple of times before.
The Disaster Artist is an entertaining, interesting and pretty funny drama/comedy with an excellent performance from James Franco.
Well-shot, directed, acted and written, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is an interesting and sometimes funny dark comedy/drama with excellent performances from Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell.
Logan Lucky is nothing new or especially original but it is a well-written and fun heist comedy with likable characters, good performances and very good soundtrack.
A sequel to 2014 surprise hit, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, wants to be crazier, bigger and funnier than the original but unfortunately fails on all levels.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a watchable and mildly fun action movie with good action sequences and some well-shot scenes, and mediocre script and performances.
