Hellboy 2019 remake. 3/10

It was terrible and I was bored and could barely pay attention despite Ian Mcshane, whom I adore, being on screen.

Sometimes casting A list actors is actually a detriment. I couldn't stop thinking about Sheriff Hopper from Stranger Things under all those prosthetics. Voice was entirely to recognizable.

The Art of Racing in the Rain - 8/10 soooo enjoyable! It was at times quite predictable, but still managed to pull a few surprises. The music was great and the scenery evocative. The story was enjoyable and heartwarming. Loved the themes.

Addicted to The Sims since 2000.

Hereditary - 3/10

I found it terribly boring and felt like so little happened in that first hour that they could have done without it altogether. Maybe I'm just a child of the 80's, set in my ways and incapable of sitting comfortably through anything that's longer than 90 minutes.

I Am Mother from Netflix, 7.5/10.

I like sci-fi and AI concepts, but it's rare to find really well done films in the genre. This...wasn't terrible and I'd watch it again---in the background. Highlights were the teenage character's acting and, actually, the team depiction of the Mother robot (Rose Byrne's voice, another actor moving it around, and I guess some others controlling its facial expressions?). Cinematography wasn't bad either in a few instances.

The plot wasn't smoothly executed---lots of twists and yet not much lasting suspense. But sometimes noteworthy acting counts for a lot, and it definitely saved this film.

@MurderPrincessK I had no idea there had been a Hellboy remake! Too bad it sounds like it wasn't better; Ian McShane is great, and I've especially loved him in the kinetically amazing John Wick movies.

Pitch Perfect (2012) 7/10

The plot is simple and predictable, but easy to follow. I liked the music and performances more than the humour which I din't get (puking, seriously?). It's enjoyable and relaxing, but definitely not thought-provoking or dealing with serious matters.

Very well-made and convincing movie about a woman who was diagnosed with Alzheimer when she turned 50. Julianne Moore's performance was stunning. 9/10
Here's the saddest scene from the movie

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) Edit: Just read the OP to use a 10-star rating system not 5.
I remember reading so much positive feedback on this movie but never got around to watching it until today. I liked it a lot and especially appreciated a brand new character being created than changing the ethnicity of an already existing character for the sake of diversity. I also enjoyed the aesthetic of the movie. Aside from that, I also liked the positive message.

Beverly Hills Cop II - 8/10

Haven't watched it in ages but I find that it's just as fun everytime I watch it. One of the very few movie lines I know off the top of my head:

"Everybody stop what you're doing. Please stop it. I'm Axel Foley, Beverly Hills bulding inspector. Everybody stop what you're doing, I'd like to speak with the foreman please. YOU put the bucket DOWN!"

The Gentlemen (2019)- 6/10

It's the kind of movie I like. Sort of like Snatch, but different. I liked the characters- Hugh Grant really surprised me because I've hated every single role he has ever played! But something about this movie was off and I just can't tell what it is. I want to love it but I just...I dunno. There's something that isn't right and that's why I can't give it a better rating.

Мотыльки (Inseparable) 10/10. I've never expected to give a 10/10 to any film but this one deserves it. A brilliant love story in the shadow of a nuclear fallout at Chernobyl. It's a fascinating story of love, compassion, dedication, sacrifice and selflessness. It literally made my cry, which doesn't happen very often.

April, 1986. Pripyat, Ukraine. A core meltdown occurred at Reactor 4 of the Chernobyl Power Plant. Over thirty people died during the blast but the estimated death toll as a result of the radiation fallout will reach a four-digit number. This accident will be considered the world's largest ecological disaster. Set at ground zero of a catastrophe, this film will reveal the details of the Chernobyl event. The shocking news of the explosion at the nuclear plant has spread, as the world watched the tragedy in fear and confusion. Hearts went out to those who displayed selfless courage and integrity in the initial efforts to stabilize the reactor power. But some were too busy being in love to notice what had just happened in nearby Chernobyl. The disaster has faded into the background...

Extraction 7.5/10. Chris Hemsworth is worth watching in anything I think. Good action movie. No real story or plot but that didn't matter to me. I don't normally like kidnapping movies but this didn't have any of that overly emotional stuff that goes with them.

The Half of It: 7.7/10
It was a super sweet LGBT coming of age story and also a really nice friendship between the male and female leads. I really loved all the motifs and cinematography. There's a few shots where the scene is shot so there's literally a line dividing the characters when they're emotionally disconnected, and I thought it was a pretty cool detail. There was also some cool motifs involving hell and different interpretations and how each character responds and gives their own interpretation of it. It moves a little fast and would be really cool if it were a miniseries or something, but it's still amazing. Also, it's super rad to have an LGBT protagonist who's also a person of color.

Big Fish: 7.7/10
I've seen this movie before, but I just love it. I love the feeling of vintage Americana and folk tales throughout and the atmosphere is just so amazing. The stories aren't realistic, but they aren't supposed to be, yet you still get an amazing understanding of the father's life even through the warped lenses.

Also, I know your post is a bit old, but I just wanted to say Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse is amazing. The animation style they use is gorgeous and it's an amazing blend of 2d, 3d and comic books. I wish more companies were willing to take risks with stylizing their movies so it wasn't always dough-y human on photorealistic background.

Притяжение (Attraction) a Russian movie from 2017

Finally a non-American sci-fi movie. What I really like about it is the fact that it doesn't glorify the government or the army, as most American sci-fi or disaster movies do, but quite on the contrary.
An unidentified flying object is shot by the Russian army and crashes in Chertanovo (southern Moscow). What will the first contact be like? What are the aliens up to and what will our reaction be?

Minions (2015) 98/100

The story of the Minions started in the primordial sea as numerous Minions in plankter form search for the most evil being to follow. As they emerge from the sea, they follow a T. Rex, until he is rolled into a volcano. Time passed and man was seemingly a viable target to worship but your average Cro-Magnon was a snack and the Ancient Egyptians were flattened into their own tomb. Not even Dracula was safe from their bumbling hijinks and gave him the ultimate sunburn. At last count before they went on an adventure, they abandoned their post in Napoleon's army after launching Napoleon. They made a home in the ice cave they found, but life in the cave became pointless without a master to serve after almost a 100-200 year isolation. So a Minion named Kevin, along with Stuart and Bob, set off for the search. They end up in New York City during 1968. We learn their dungarees were taken from a clothesline and a little about their personalities. They get locked in at a department store that night and watch "The Dating Game" (IRL I'm not sure "The Dating Game" was even available in 1968) and then, the screen goes to static. Stuart fixes it with a pose, an umbrella and an electric egg beater, but it tunes it to a channel for villains and it announces a convention for all manner of evil doers include the "first" successful super villainess, Scarlet Overkill. So, with that information, they set off for Orlando to find a new master.

Easter eggs!:
I don't know if any one else saw it, but at Villain-Con, Gru's with his mother at the Freeze Ray booth. This little Easter egg is one I found watching a second time.

A reference to The Beatles album Abbey Road (1969) is seen, with the instrumental to "Love Me Do" is played before the fourth Beatle in line stomps on the lid, shoving the Minions back into the sewer.

Favorite Scene:
Then, the scene where "Make 'em Laugh" goes tragically wrong and the Minions find themselves running from Yeti, polar bears and grizzly bears.

Sit! This is my favorite part!:
Usually, when I used to go to the movies, once the lights went up, the credits were rolling and it was time to go home. These days they make you sit for the credits and inter-credit hijinks and sometimes post-credits.
And the credits include:
Scenes of the hijinks involved Gru as a young boy adjusting to life with Minions.

I'm trying to get caught up so I can watch "Minions 2: Rise of Gru" I already watched the trilogy under the Despicable Me titles and Minions obviously. All that's left is the 10 Mini-Movies.

6 Underground 2/10.
I was prepared for some mindless violence, car chases etc etc but wow, so boring. I was quarter of the way through the movie and the so-called revenge against evil b*****ds of the world hadn't even started as far as I could make out. It was all very confusing and could have been much shorter, not that I waited til the end. I gave up.
