Rating History

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was an amazing surprise. It manages to have tons of comedy, TONS of characters, and an animation style that's never been seen before in a wide-release film, and somehow manages to be one of the best comic book movies ever made.

Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I liked the 2016 Disney version more, but I still think Mowgli holds up on its own as a really fascinating take on the classic story. It's definitely jarring to say the least, this film gets DAAAARRK. Like, holy shit levels of dark! But, it does serve the story, and it's done really well.

My only main issues are for one, they made the animal faces more human-looking. I get that they were trying to distinguish themselves from the 2016 version, but that wasn't the right approach. The CGI itself is gorgeous, but it's just the faces that look weird.

Plus, there's a scene involving someone giving Mowgli a knife to cut his food, but all I'm thinking is: "Why the hell are you giving this wild boy a knife???"

But all in all, Mowgli, I feel, is a pretty underrated film. Not as good as the 2016 version, but still quite an accomplishment in of itself.

The Trump Prophecy
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Well, I finally saw The Trump Prophecy.

"What's this film about?" you may ask. Well, it's supposedly the true story of a retired firefighter who in 2011, said that God came to him and told him that the next President of the United States would be Donald Trump and he would fix this country.

Not joking. That's actually the plot. So, naturally, I thought this was a hilariously stupid idea. An extremist Christian film AND an extremist Conservative film? This is going to blow.

But admittedly, when I watched the film... I was absolutely right. This is a hilariously bad film, not just from the fact that this is a "true" story, but the filmmaking or lack thereof is horrendous. They made Lucifer look like a C-Grade Orc from Lord of the Rings, the visual effects are cheap as hell, God apparently looks like the moon, and there are many times you can see the camera tripod!

And even after the movie wraps up, it somehow still has 30 minutes left! How does it fill that running time? Well, it starts by doing one of the many things I hate in movies: it manipulates your emotions forcefully.

In order to get an emotional response from the film, it starts playing some Christian country music while showing random clips of soldiers coming home to their families, soldiers folding up the American flag, soldiers rescuing people, etc. And in real life, those are not bad things, but shoving them into a film where they're completely out of context and ONLY exist to FORCE an emotional response out of you just sickens me to my stomach.

Then, the rest of it is just random interviews of different Christian political figures that once again, have nothing to do with the film.

The Trump Prophecy is awful. Just fucking awful. It gets hilariously bad, but around the end, it infuriates me so much with its gloating and emotional manipulation.

Had Twelve Pole not come out this year, this would have easily been #1 in my worst movies of the year. But as of now, it gets the silver metal.

Avoid The Trump Prophecy at all costs, and may it burn in Hell for eternity.

Green Book
Green Book (2018)
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I don't get the backlash for Green Book ever since it won Best Picture at the Oscars. I would have voted for BlacKkKlansman, but I thought Green Book was a very nice film with a witty, yet impactful screenplay, and two actors that work very well off each other.

Beautiful Boy
Beautiful Boy (2018)
13 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Beautiful Boy has some beautiful performances and scenes, however my biggest issue is that many times, especially in the first act, it's a bit hard to follow, chronologically.

Still, good enough for me to recommend.
