Beauty and the Beast was excellent. It was a great retelling of classic animated film with some much appreciated additional depth to the characters and songs. 8/10

Iron Fist is progressively getting better. I'm still not quite sure what to make of Finn Jones, I'm also not really crazy about Tom Pelphrey (he seems like he's trying to hard to be Gordon Gecko's son).
Frosty_86 updated his STATUS: 5 days ago

I'm two episodes into Iron Fist and so far it's only okay. When looking at the three other Marvel/Netflix shows it was clear from the get go Charlie Cox, Krysten Ritter, and Mike Colter were their respective characters. The cast as a whole is not as strong as the cast members of the other shows. The exception being David Wenham, that guy is just fucking awesome. Finn Jones as Danny is okay, he doesn't seem as comfortable with the material as the other MCU leads have been.

I will still defend the DCEU movies but I think the new Justice Trailer shows they are going in the right direction with these movies. I was looking forward to seeing Momoa in action as Aquaman but I think he's going to end up stealing the show. I dug the shot of Amber Heard as Mera and the inclusion of JK Simmons rocking that epic mustache.

Yeah, Momoa does look like he might steal the show.

If you ask me what has hurt Hollywood is not Rotten Tomatoes but it's lazy filmmakers like Brett Ratner. It's also studios who force cuts and unnecessary changes to the original vision to mainstream the movie. He mention Batman v. Superman. The cutting of that movie didn't make any sense after I saw the Ultimate Cut and I blame the studio for that. It still has its issues and it's still divisive but I think it would have done better had the 3 hour cut just been released. I'm sure plenty of people would disagree with me about BvS being a good movie any ways but I don't think many people would disagree studio imposed cuts/change have been extremely detrimental to many movies. To me that is more of problem than a site that just collects reviews and allows people to make their own decision.

In writing, they say that your editor can be your best friend saving your text and your ass or that your editor can be the dummkopf ruining your beautiful composition. I think that movie producers and sales teams function in much the same way.

Brett Ratner's comments about Rotten Tomatoes basically boil down to an ego-maniac being butthurt because he hasn't taken Hollywood by storm with such classics as X-Men: The Last Stand, Hercules, and the Rush Hour sequels.

2017 Movie Journal- #4

Kubo and the Two Strings- First viewing. The fourth full-length feature from Laika studios may very well be their very best. The studio itself is 4/4 in my books. It is a darker film than the other animated films of 2016, it still manages to have some very funny parts. It even manages to be quite creepy in some parts. The voice acting is excellent, Charlize Theron was excellent. 9/10

Birth of a Nation- First viewing. Out of the 2016 releases I have seen so far this was one that I was probably the most disappointed in. With early buzz for this starting pretty early suggesting sheer greatness, I guess I was expecting something else. This movie ends up being very conventional in its storytelling, and it adds a few things to the story that I do not think were necessary. It takes the storytelling liberties most Hollywood films do with historical pieces. Nate Parker does have talent as a writer, director, and actor but I think he does need to work on honing his skills. 4/10

Zootopia- First viewing. This thinly veiled statement on discrimination in society as quite a lot going for it. It works as a great animated satire, it is very funny, and the voice cast excellent. The love how the world was presented, it felt richly populated and lived-in I still need to see Moana but I can say Disney did an excellent job in 2016. 9/10

The Wraith- First viewing. This 80s supernatural revenge flick starring Charlie Sheen and the drop dead sexy Sherilyn Fenn had an interesting enough concept but a very flawed execution. At a run-time thats not even 90 minutes everything does feel a little rushed. It is very much a B-movie, it is cheesy as hell. It is very watchable for genre fans but far from highly memorable.6/10

Kung Fu Panda 3- First viewing. I was actually kind of dreading this movie. I absolutely adore the first two movies but when the trailers came out for this one there was something very off about it. It also got a very bad release date, suggesting a Dreamworks had yet another dismal third entry to a franchise. This movie does a great job of expanding the universe of Kung Fu Panda established in the first two films, and really offers a good conclusion to Po and friends. This one was sheer fun and adventure, just like the other two. This was yet another impressive animated film in 2016. 8/10

Ride With the Devil- First viewing. I was not a fan of the Ang Lee directed Civil War drama. I found it to be very boring. There was some good there but I do not think it was ever very successful of delivering its themes. Tobey Maguire is never particularly compelling in the lead, it probably does not help that I am not a huge fan of him. 5/10

Up to 24 first time viewings in 2017

You did some good and important viewing. Everyone continues discussing and promoting Zootopia and Kubo. The two are excellent. And, many people mention The Wraith when mentioning '80s movies. HBO used to play The Wraith seemingly non-stop, so the film probably has its cult following partially from there.

2017 Movie Journal- #3

Logan- First viewing. The first 2017 release I saw already set the bar pretty fucking high for the rest of the year. As a huge fan of westerns the influence there was obvious from the setting itself to the themes. Jackman gives the perfect cap to his career as Wolverine, giving a performance that transcends the genre. The same that can be said about Jackman can be said about Patrick Stewart's performance as Charles Xavier. James Mangold can be a little hit or miss, but this definitely ranks up with his best works. 9/10 Not going to lie, this could go up

Kong: Skull Island- First viewing. I was not a huge fan of 2014s Godzilla. I was how the planned shared Kaiju universe would play out. Kong certainly brought fun factor that I thought was severely lacking from Godzilla. The movie bounces at a ridiculously fast pace. It doesn't waste too much time on exposition. It is an adventure-action movie that gives the audience what it wants, and that is King Kong. I loved the creature design on Kong and the return of the biped version of the character. 7/10

Shane- First viewing. After watching Logan I had to go back and watch the film that easily had the most influence on it. Shane deserves its ranks in the classics. It is a much smarter and more soulful western than any of John Wayne's entries in to the genre. Jack Palance does a great job as playing the anti-Shane villain in the movie. He makes for a great adversary for Alan Ladd. My buggest complaint is the kid, there were some scenes where his line delivery was absolutely killing me. 8/10

The Stalking Moon- First viewing. This western starring Gregory Peck has an interesting premise but never comes in its own. It never fully works as western or suspense-thriller that it was going for. I think it could have worked better had it gone for a more all out horror approach than a "what would Hitchcock do if he made a western." 4/10

High and Low- First viewing. This was my first Kurosawa non-Samurai film. He understood the film noir-suspense genre very well. With this movie he made an extremely suspenseful movie but also a profound political statement, apparently at the time Japanese law did not give harsh punishments to kidnappers. Toshiro Mifune did amazing work as the conflicted businessman, his and Kurosawa's collaborations are among the greatest ever actor/director combinations of all-time. 9/10

The Furies- First viewing. This western mixed with psycho-drama was definitely ahead of its time. It features strong performances from its leads. A very interesting premise involving a power hungry land baron going toe to toe with his daughter. There really is only one or two sympathetic characters, which may turn off some viewers. 7/10

I agree with you on Shane, except for the John Wayne dig. He made some classics - including Stagecoach (though his acting isn't the best in this one, the symbolism and social views are great), The Searchers, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, and The Shootist.

I will say I do like Stagecoach but everything else with John Wayne I've tried to watch I just couldn't get into. I have legitimately tried his movies but I just couldn't get in to. There a few I'm still willing to try but those are movies with other actors I like.
