The franchise is in no danger of showing up the originals, but at least you can feel slightly better about the mountains of merchandising that's going to spin out of this. It's disappointing, but still fun, and perhaps Disney is putting too much rollercoaster thought into things, and not enough movie thought.
La La Land isn't just an instant classic, it's an instant litmus test, and if you don't love it, you're going to want to be careful who you tell. There's more movie happening here than you find in the average ten films, and Stone and Gosling can't receive too much praise.
Allied kicks off in a way that will suck you in, and make you think you're in for one of the best films in a decade, but the wind eventually falls out of the sails as though everyone lost interest in making it.
Kids are going to have a lot of fun with Trolls, and walk out of the theater dancing, but that's really all you can say about it, which means it doesn't come close to living up to today's standards.
What should have been a thoughtful, yet wild ride is a mishandled misfire, that nevertheless includes a lot of fun moments. It had the potential to be among the best Marvel efforts, and instead is one of the most forgettable.
Generational analysis films are rather difficult to pull off, despite how often they come around, and that's when you aren't aiming the lens at yourself. Kids in Love can't overcome all the hurdles, but it's one hell of a try.
This is a sequel that sucks the life out of a franchise, apparently made by people who either didn't like, or didn't respect, the first film. Cruise can keep things moving to a degree, but it isn't enough to make this one worthwhile in the end.
The Whole Truth might have managed more, but Reeves is surprising in a complicated role.
There's so much potential here that it's worth watching just to see that in action, but it mostly falls short of what it claims it will deliver. That's not just bad in general, but a certain waste of a great effort by Affleck.
