Triple Threat
Triple Threat (2019)
6 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This film is one of those which are very difficult to write review. It's not because it has many different things to say, it's because of it doesn't have that much to write. So, my review will be short than usual.

The story itself is so plain and nothing much there. But the process is quite good. What I love about this film is how Jaka drew out those bad guys into the light to get revenge. The actions are basically fine, but not that much impressive. The choreography is just at the acceptable level. When I was watching, I have expected more. So, if they could do better, it will be better.

All in all, although the story is so simple and so plain, at least it doesn't make me bored and I enjoyed a bit. Thus, I'd say it's worth to give it a try.

Inferno
Inferno (2016)

The film is basically fine. But quite enjoyable. The thing that I love this movie is that a girl seemed to be on the good side is really on the bad side. I realised that not everyone who seems good is not good. They might be bad people. The director showed it and so, as for me, it's good to watch.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Am I the only one who feels like this film really looks like "Narnia : The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" film? The scene where Clara first arrived to that little world, that snowy place really looks like that one where Lucy first arrived to Narnia. That scene really reminded me of that film.

The story is also like Narnia film I've mentioned, but difference is that the evil one is hidden. When everything's in place, she appeared. Rather than we know who is evil, hidden is kind of nice. It makes the audience surprised.

The acting is basically fine. But I don't like Mackenzie Foy's acting that much. It seems like she needs to be better than this. And (out of topic) I can't quite believe that the little Renesmee from Twilight grew up like this. She's like an adult girl. I was really surprised when I saw her name in the credit. LOL.

The animation is good since it's from Disney. So, no doubt. Hence, no more comment on it.

I also don't like the title either. The title is like focusing on nutcracker while the whole film is performed by Clara. Still, it really makes it new version. I've only seen nutcracker once in the Barbie film. When I saw it in the film, I was like it's kind of different from it. But I can't say where it becomes different. Yet, it looks great.

Finally, the costume. I'd say the costume designer is terrible. What's wrong with Clara's costume? The purple one is the worst. I mean she's the lead, so, at least, they should've done a better job on her dress. But they didn't. So, I really don't like it.

Overall is that although it really looks like Narnia film (with no fighting scenes which makes it different from it) and it doesn't have that much thing to enjoy, it's worth to watch at least once.

High Life
High Life (2019)

I really had high hope for this film because I always saw it on TV channels saying that it's kind of a good film. Moreover, Robert Pattinson was in it. So, I thought the film wouldn't turn out to be that bad since Twilight was good and I could watch it. But I was completely wrong.

When I was watching it, I felt so boring and it almost made me fell asleep. After ten minutes passed, no improvements. So, I skipped some more minutes. Twenty minutes to be exact. But it's still boring. I gave it one more chance. I skipped ten minutes again. Sadly, no improvements. Hence, I stopped watching.

I don't know about others. As for me, this film is so terrible and so, it's not worth to watch. Not even once.

The Mule

The Mule. Well, when I saw this film introduction on some TV channels, I wondered why would an approximately 90 years-old old man transport drugs and cocaine? After I watched the film, I got the answer for that question.

Family! The answer is for family of course. Family is the most important of all in our lives. Some people think that money is the most important thing. If we don't have money, we can't do what we want to do, we can't eat what we want to eat, we'll have to live uncomfortably and etc. I must admit that money is also important too. But compared to the family, money isn't the most important thing at all.

On the other hand, if we don't have money, we can find a way to get some. Of course it needs to be in the honest way though. But if we lost family, we won't get them back. That's why family is the most important thing. This is for those who think only money is the most important thing and for those ones who work so hard and can't give time for their families.

In this film, the director clearly showed that money isn't important. What it really important is the family. We can't abandon them. While family is important, money is also important too. We have to keep those two in balance. That's what this film is all about.

All in all, the Mule shows the importance of families which we sometimes forget. Although it has a great purpose, the presentation is a little bit boring. But I kept watching because I was eager to see when he's gonna get caught. (I feel like I'm naughty. LOL.) Although it's kind of boring, it has a great message and so, it's enjoyable for one time watch.
