  • F9

    F9

    ★★

    I saw the movie yesterday and I’m reviewing it until now not because I had been busy, but because I had forgotten I had watched it, so yeah.

    Here’s the thing, I went in expecting to be very critical of it, and not actually like it, but I figured it would keep me entertained. F8 already had had some problems for me, and Hobbs and Shaw the same, but they weren’t a chore to get through.

    ★★

    Unfortunately I don’t have much to say about this one. The praise it got had me excited, but sadly it disappointed me (I’m in the minority though).

  • Gemini Man

    Gemini Man

    ★★

    I saw this and Maleficent the same day, and let’s just say, I thought my opinion would be reversed.

    The trailer never wowed me, and I knew the reviews coming in were bad, but I’ve always been a huge fan of action movies, and the story had so much potential...when I heard this felt like a 90s movie, I was relieved cause I thought it would be for me.

    After the first third this was a solid 3 star film…
