Men in Black: International a Spoiler Free Review

What can I say about this movie other than…Meh?

That pretty much sums the movie up for me. Everything about the movie felt pretty generic. It really adds nothing to the franchise. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are not nearly as charming or funny as they were in Thor: Ragnarok.

There are new aliens and old aliens and all the tropes we expect from a Men in Black movie, and the fate of the world is at stake (probably? Agent K said that was always the case) and… yeah. I mean, if you are a super Men in Black fan, maybe this movie is awesome, but otherwise, it isn’t particularly fun or action-packed.

The Second Formic War & Fleet School

The Enderverse cannot be stopped, and new additions are still being added. Since my review of The First Formic War Trilogy two new trilogies are now in progress. A sequel to the first trilogy, The Swarm: The Second Formic War (again written by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston) and Children of the Fleet (written solely by Orson Scott Card).

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in 100 words or less – Spoiler Free

Watch it.

 

 

No, seriously.

 

Here’s the highlights:

  • Visually stunning in a way that perfectly executes a blend of cinema and comic book that hasn’t been done before, but absolutely needs to be done again
  • Well-written (for real) story that contains actual surprise moments
  • Well-acted with a great cast
  • Humor and action for toddlers to adults
  • Great soundtrack (Sunflower is still stuck in my head)

This is a movie for the whole family, not just avid or casual Spider-man fans. Fans of The Incredibles or Big Hero 6 will like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Just go watch it.

 

Ralph Breaks the Internet Review in 100 Words or Less – Spoiler-Free

Ralph Breaks the Internet, aka Wreck-It Ralph 2, is decent sequel full of fun moments and occasional laughs.

While the overall plot is clear for all audiences, the computer- and Internet-related references are going to be lost on younger viewers. This wasn’t an issue for Wreck-It Ralph, as the cameo characters weren’t necessary to “get” the concept.

Multiple times I found myself bored and wondering if Ralph Breaks the Internet grew up a little too much for fans of the goofy fun of the original, more so than The Incredibles 2.

Thumbs up, with reservations. I’ll probably buy it.
