    Star Trek Beyond - 7.5/10

    Kinda a mixed bag in the beginning, there was a good bit of cheesy lines and was a bit messy. The third act was absolutely fantastic, however. Absolutely loved that space battle with the music, had me laughing so much. Hits all the right notes in the end.
    Overall, some highs and lows in the first two acts, but absolutely stellar ending. Glad I finally got around to seeing this one :lol:

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs - 9/10
    Loved every minute of it, all of the stories in the movie had that great Coen brother dark humor and charm. A definite watch for those who love Westerns.

    Ant-Man & the Wasp - 7.5/10

    Nothing special, but still really fun and hilarious. Marvel movies tend to be over the top, but this movie takes it into a whole different level (and it has me hooked). I could see why people take issue with the convoluted plot with the multiple antagonists, but I love that it adds to the craziness of the whole thing. Not as good as the first, but still super fun. (And that end credits scene... wow)

    Oh yeah, I saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. It was fantastic. I'm just gonna say it, but this is probably my all time favorite animated movie. Definitely the best looking one I've ever seen.

    9.5/10

    Detective Pikachu- 7.5/10
    The movie was insanely enjoyable and I almost give it an 8 but the movie did have problems which I can't ignore and I have gripes with the story at times.

    The Upside - 6.5/10

    This is a remake of the French classic 'Intouchables', a true story of two men from very different backgrounds becoming unlikely friends. I decided to watch it because it had Kevin Heart in it and I was curious to see how it compared to the original. The movie isn't bad, but I just don't see the point in it. Why remake something that isn't even old and is already so good on its own? Is it because Americans are too lazy to read subtitles (genuine question)? If I had watched this without seeing 'Intouchables' I probably would have liked it more, but you can't help but compare, and when you do this one just lacks all of the charm that the original has.

    Moral of the story: don't remake something that has barely had time to age and that is already so beloved by people. Also: just watch the damn original with subtitles.

    Intouchables - 9/10 ^_^

    No sarcasm: but abso-fucking-lutely Americans are too lazy to read subtitles. There's tons of American remakes that are worse than the original films, the films were remade basically just because adult American movie viewers dislike reading subtitles, and because Hollywood studios thought they could squeeze money out of a new audience.
