^Never got around to seeing that, but always thought the concept of a first-person action film was really cool. Is it any good?


Pizza Time.

Honestly holds up pretty well, and I don't even really care about superheroes.

I've watched a number of films since I last posted one here. Some brilliant, some pants:


The major highlight out of the lot in those lists is:



Latest movie, not on a List Challenge yet, was:



Oh man where do I start with this one? I thought the extra books by David Lagercrantz were actually pretty good, especially this first one, but this movie is a disaster on every level. It throws so much of the book out, changes character fates that completely ruins any potential follow-up following the next books (which may be a good thing based on this) and the casting is well off the mark. Blomkvist perhaps most of all (he looks far too young in this, even though the actor is in his 40s). Certain new characters aren't any better, especially Needham, who is badly miscast based on his book description. Near worthless movie.

I got behind again:



Pretty good darkly comic drama.



Great movie. More quirky than expected.



Fairly average B-western. 



A 30s Howard Hawks genre-bended. Like a western in some ways, a gangster movie in others. Pretty good. 



This is weird. Not even sure if I liked it or not. Weird is the only impression I came away with on a first viewing.



An old 30s 'horror' movie but watching it in 2020 only the final stages feel anything like horror as we know it today. It's alright I guess, taking in mind when it was made. 



Prime quality noir. 



Excellent western. 



A bit thin on plot but also not as bad as some say it is. It did have potential to be a lot better though.



Weakest Conjuring Universe movie I've watched so far, though like the above I didn't find it half as bad as some have made it out to be. There are a ton of genuinely shit horror movies out there that don't get ragged on half as much as this one does. It's merely average. 



Compared to part 1 this was good but a letdown and didn't need to be nearly three hours long. 



But not as much of a letdown as this one was. All action that felt too silly and little substance. The end felt anticlimactic too.

^Yeah the new Hellboy isn´t that great and I loved the first two movies (probably some of my favorite superhero movies).
 
I watched this one last night. It was alright, but nothing special:
Crimson Peak (2015)

^ I liked it but it's not a movie I've ever re-watched which considered del Toro is one of my top directors is probably telling. I will re-watch it one day, though.

Pretty weird yet compelling horror comedy.

Hmmm...well entertaining, but not really great. I´m not surprised anymore though, just had hopes for something a Little darker and more gritty. Oh well....number seven may be better:
Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Natalia Reyes, and Mackenzie Davis in Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

An excellent biopic, with one glaring omission about the moon landing that feels very wrong.

This isn't always as well executed as it could be, but overall it's an entertaining zom-com.

I'm not sold that its the greatest Spider-man film ever made the way many make it out to be, but it's an excellent and fun movie with cool animation.

A pretty good Swedish language sci-fi movie (although the SGI is a bit cheap and the camera Work isn´t always the best either). It´s more psychological than action though, so it may not please everybody.
Aniara (2018)

This isn't as good as many Marvel movies but I liked it. Nice to see a more mature Marvel film (other than the Deadpools) for sure.

Personally I found it to be one of the worst Marvel movies I´ve watched (and I´ve watched them all Tongue).

Another previously unseen classic ticked off the list. I liked it, though like many don't see how it won Best Picture over either Pulp Fiction or Shawshank.
