Which movie do you think is the most disappointing movie of the year?
There have been plenty of bad movies this year, but which do you think has been the most disappointing? Which was the movie people had high expectations or hopes for, but were generally most let down with the finished product?
The following three movies were the most underwhelming experiences I’ve had in the theater: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, The Predator, and Venom.
I’d say The Predator is my most disappointing movie of 2018. I’m a huge fan of Shane Black. He has both written (Lethal Weapon and The Last Boyscout) as well as written/directed (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Nice Guys) some fantastic movies. That experience along with the fact that he actually acted in the original Predator had me hoping that he truly understood what made this IP work and would reflect that in a solid movie. Boy was I wrong. This movie seems like it was completely rushed and subject to multiple last minute amendments; leaving us with a spirit-less product full of plot holes and shallow characters.
I’m assuming with this article that Aquaman will at least be decent (fingers crossed!). What do you guys think?
“The Magic Order” is already one of the best new series this year, and it’s just getting into the real action! Check out our review of issue #3.Read More
Mission: Impossible - Fallout (2018)
Ethan Hunt and his IMF team, along with some familiar allies, race against time after a mission gone wrong.
Director: Christopher McQuarrie
Writers: Christopher McQuarrie, Bruce Geller (based on the television series created by)
Stars: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames
I've always enjoyed the Mission Impossible franchise. It's not great like say Star Wars or Lord of the Rings (excluding The Hobbit series), but it's solid. I'd give most of the movies B+'s (excluding of course MI2...yikes). They're super plot heavy and also slightly break the rules of the reality they establish, but they're smart, stylish, and fun.
Mission: Impossible - Fallout I think is the best of the bunch. I can't believe what they pulled off with this movie in terms of craftsmanship and Tom Cruise's crazy stunt work. My breakdown of the movie is below. What are your thoughts?! I can't believe Tom Cruise is 56! FIFTY SIX?!
Haha the arm reloading is real and awesome!
The bathroom action scene is just incredible. Well done!
Game-changing action sequences
Mistreatment of the female characters
One or two unrealistic moments in the action sequences
