    Arrival 9/10

    Brilliant! I don't think there's anything I love more than a 'smart alien movie'. There was such an interesting approach to this film that I don't think I've seen in any other 'alien movies'. Anyone who says 'Arrival' is boring is obviously used to the cheap thrills provided by movies like 'Battle for Los Angels' or 'Independence Day'. I for one, wasn't bored for a minute! Loved it!

    Blade Runner 2049 - 10/10

    I don't see any reason to not give it a ten out of ten; no flaws are coming to mind. So visually stunning.

    Hey.
    WALL•E [on TV] - I loved it as a child, and two days ago I was glad to see it's still great. I felt like watching it after finally getting the PS2 game again (the sole reason I had a PS2 in the first place). The setting, the sound design, the finely carried plot, it's awesome. I just love getting inmersed in it and the reflections the bigger picture incites.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom [at the cinema] - I had planned watching this movie for a while, and the in-universe website they put up for it really kept me invested. We finally watched it yesterday, the whole family. I'm still surprised at how maturely my five y/o brother went through it (and the other Jurassic films, by extension). He wasn't carried away enough to be scared, but wasn't uninterested in the thing either. He kept asking what dinosaur was on screen at the moment (a bit annoying, but not as bad as with Transformers), and he understood most plot progressions and didn't take the deaths to heart. My mom is still going on about how adorable Blue was. I liked it, I guess, and I certainly want to see wherever the story's heading towards now. I just hope they stop there. Even though there are many new concepts being handled here, it's true the sheer wonder of the dinosaurs alone isn't going to keep this franchise afloat forever. But for now, I think they did a good job choosing between tradition and subversion (and from the looks of it, it's been better digested than the other dark middle chapter in a sequel trilogy). Let's see where it goes from here.

    I've been on a Ghibli kick for awhile, since the movies aren't expensive as fuck anymore to buy.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - 6/10

    Not a bad movie and I enjoyed it quite a bit. But it has big points off for under using Jeff Goldblum. I also felt a few things were just shoehorned in for the sake of poorly moving the plot along.

    Tag - 7/10

    Actually pretty damn funny, but man is there some dark humor in there at the end. The ending didn't detract the overall experience for me though.

    Saw Venom and A Star is Born on Saturday.

    Venom is not nearly as bad as critics are saying it is. It's a very fun, enjoyable comic-book film. Granted, the film wouldn't work at all had the peformance of Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock and Venom not worked as well as it did. If they really focus on the weirdness of the almost buddy-cop relationship Eddie Brock and Venom have in the sequel, the movie will be gold.

    Having never seen the previous 3 versions of A Star is Born, I went in not really knowing what to expect outside of the trailers I had seen. If this film doesn't at least get an Oscar nomination for the music alone, it will be an absolute crime. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga give absolutely killer peformances, and the film left me in tears. The very next day I saw it I went out and got the soundtrack. The movie is truly incredible. Highly recommended.
