Free Fire (5.5/10):
Average movie with a slightly different story. People who can stand one single location throughout the movie and like watching terrible people die will like this movie.
After revisiting Mrs. Doubtfire, I went back to another Robin Williams classic. Some of the effects have aged terribly, but the movie is very exciting and enjoyable even though I have seen it around 5-6 times before.
High Fidelity (6/10):
A cut above the normal rom-coms. Watch it if you like to see a totally fleshed out character going through realistic issues.
Have heard a lot of praise about this one. Overall it was OK. The first half is charming, second half gets boring and repetitive. Effects are good and a few characters are good.
Spider-Man: Homecoming (8/10):
My first Spidey movie in cinemas. Enjoyed it a ton. The 3D works great. I actually got scared of the height in one scene because of the way it was made. Good work by Tom Holland, Keaton, and that kid who plays his friend. One negative I would say is that Iron Man should not have been in this movie. Also, too many notable actors were cast in bit parts.
La La Land (6.5/10):
A few great dance sequences lift this movie up. The songs are fine, one or two are legitimately good. Emma Stone's acting was good. As I though more about this movie, my opinion of it went down. I liked the ending, agree with the thought process behind it.
Shaun of the Dead (5/10):
A by-the-numbers zombie movie that gets a lot of praise for some reason.
The Birdcage (6.25/10):
Yes, another Robin Williams movie. I saw it for the first time. I was surprised that he played this character at a time when it was very controversial. Anyway, first 2/3rd's are very good, the final third takes it down a bit. Nathan Long and Hank Azaria are incredibly funny in this movie. The two young characters are annoying.
Surprised that this one was a mainstream release in the US, and that it was actually successful, the first half has no english dialogue. When the movie gets to Dev Patel's part, it loses steam. It is able to recover in the final 10 minutes. Still, could have been great. The Kid overshadows Dev totally.
