Movie Reviewer-David, Belgrade  Movie reviews, both of latest releases and older classic films with my honest opinion. My reviews - #nameofthemoviesimbasible

Mandy has a very interesting visual style to it, memorable occult imagery and a good performance from Nicolas Cage, but the movie is overly pretentious in its first half, overly violent in the second half and rather empty throughout emotionally and thematically speaking. It's an original film for sure, but too annoying to be enjoyed more.

My Rating - 2.5

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is a perfectly solid superhero comedy flick which is bland in its soundtrack and quite underutilized in its characters, but it's very good as a parody of sorts with particularly strong meta-humor and many sophisticated jokes about the superhero genre and the current state of the medium. It's also surprisingly well animated and although sometimes immature, it's mostly quite sophisticated surprisingly enough and overall more than satisfactory when it comes to TV adaptations.

Sorry to Bother You is a very divisive movie as some absolutely love it and some despise it. I am, however, in the middle. I find it to be a solid indie drama that is especially strong as a directorial debut for Boots Riley and a terrific acting showcase for Lakeith Stanfield. The dialogue is fine and the first half is particularly good in its central conflict. But the second half, though original, is simply too crazy, weird and honestly silly in Equisapiens and the movie never quite worked as a SF or as an absurdist comedy tale.

Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius is a baffling Oscar nominee with some good scenes, its heart is certainly in the right place and it's good for kids, but it's rather boring for adults owing to an overly childish tone to it. The characters are forgettable, the plot is silly and the CGI animation is absolutely atrocious and it was dated even when it came out.

Bad Girl is a pretty good romantic drama which features a jarring shift in tone half-way into the story and I did personally prefer that highly romantic, wonderful first half, but still the dramatic second half is thematically brave for its time and also interesting in its slice-of-life approach. Frank Borzage directed the film so well whereas Sally Eilers and James Dunn are both terrific.

Halloween III: Season of the Witch is a highly underrated entry in the Halloween franchise which is never particularly scary and it truly is batshit crazy, but I still ended up liking its departure from the previous stories and villain by focusing on new characters, an unoriginal but fun SF angle and it also features a solid atmosphere and mystery to it.

Serpico is a solid movie which features a very important real-life story of an inspirational titular figure well acted by Al Pacino. It's also well shot and with memorable atmosphere to it. But the pacing is so slow and the runtime is too long that the movie ended up being quite uneven and never achieving the much needed immediacy in its tone.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is again a silly, frequently even ridiculous affair which is such an unrealistic fairy tale with the character interactions being particularly implausible, but it's still a marked improvement upon its weak predecessor thanks to much better singing this time around, some very well used songs, some endearing characters and an irresistible charm.

Thanks to combined efforts of fantastic cinematography and amazing sound editing, First Man manages to put us the audience into the spaceflight itself which made this a great thriller-horror experience and an audio-visual experience that simply needs to be seen on the biggest screen to be appreciated to the fullest extent. The movie has some issues such as sorely underutilized Buzz Aldrin, but Neil Armstrong is, despite what many would say, a great, introverted and intriguing protagonist so well acted by underrated Ryan Gosling. Claire Foy steals the show though with a powerhouse performance in a very emotional role. The film thankfully stayed away from annoying patriotism that plagues so many American movies by instead focusing on the more intimate family drama and all the tragedies that befall them with that bracelet scene on the Moon being the most beautiful, poetic moment. It was tough, but Damien Chazelle actually managed to top himself by making his best film so far which is one of the biggest cinematic achievements of the entire year.

The Legend of Tarzan is a very flawed, but still quite solid and even underrated flick which is different in its storyline than other Tarzan adaptations by offering us a sequel, a more sophisticated historical approach and strong dialogue. Alexander Skarsgard is too stiff and Christoph Waltz is annoying, but Margot Robbie is memorable as a more proactive Jane and Samuel L. Jackson is a highly amusing comic relief. It's an interesting, more thoughtful experiment that was ultimately derailed by horrendous pacing.
