TWENEEK19: Q2 Films

Haven't seen as many as I'd liked so far this summer thanks to lots of finals/sets eating up my time. Hopefully next quarter will be different.
9Black Sabbath
Born Again


Dead Don’t Die: 2/5
A suffocating sense of irony and ego pervade the entire film, its lone amusing moments deadened by the enveloping pointlessness and unoriginality of the whole experience. It’s a film whose point is to have no point, but it's certainly not the first to try this and desperately fail.
8Bjork
Volta


Dark Phoenix: 2.5/5
While the first act has a refreshing earnestness and fizz to it, it’s quickly let down by an increasing lack of understanding of its own characters and a horribly missed opportunity with its antagonist.
7Avenged Sevenfold
Sounding the Seventh Trumpet


Godzilla: King of Monsters: 3/5
Achieving an uneasy balance between its human drama and impressive scope, Godzilla nevertheless topples itself over due to some major pacing issues in the 2nd act.
6Foo Fighters
Sonic Highways


Detective Pikachu: 3.5/5
A pretty ridiculous but entertaining spectacle with a surprising emotional core and plenty of fun visuals to boot. If you sit back and don’t take it seriously, you should have some serious fun with this thing.
5Cage The Elephant
Social Cues


Shazam: 3.5/5
Not gonna lie, I was pretty drunk when I saw this one but what I did comprehend I had a great time with. There was some straight up dumb shit here, but overall it was an enjoyable ride through and through.
4Brand New
Your Favorite Weapon


John Wick Chapter 3: 3.5/5
The John Wick franchise takes a major hit thanks to an overabundance of tongue-in-cheek self-awareness, adding an element of humor that throws off the balance on top of some repetitive action scenes. We always knew how ridiculous the action was, we never needed the characters to as well. Still, it’s one of the best and best-looking action franchise out there today.
3Elton John
Madman Across the Water


Rocketman: 3.5/5
While the musical elements lacked a certain punch every once in a while, Rocketman (and Taron Egerton) did an excellent job of investing me in the story. While it took me a while to get into it, Rocketman had plenty of weird, giddy energy to it to make it more than just work.
2Elder (USA-MA)
Reflections of a Floating World


I Am Mother: 4/5
A surprising and impressive work of science fiction that might not have been the most original piece ever made, but it weaves through twists and turns to provide an engaging and thought-provoking story of humanity and our robot caretakers.
1Coldplay
Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends


Avengers: Endgame: 5/5
What can I say? It’s the end of an era, it’s a massive cultural moment, and one of the most satisfying endings ever put to screen.
