Seen Dr Strange, Fantastic Beasts, and Arrival. Dr Strange was great entertainment and worth seeing in theatres. Arrival was well done but had little payback for sitting through it. And Fantastic Beasts was woeful as I expected it to be, unfortunately.

Also seen Brooklyn which was good if a bit predictable and simplistic.

Decided to force my girlfriend to watch Deadpool so we could both see Deadpool 2. She has some weird Ryan Reynolds fetish.

I thought the Dark Tower was o-k. But nowhere near as good as the books. Popcorn entertainment basically.

Last movie I saw was Black Panther. T'Chaka is one of my favourite superheroes, so I was looking forward to this movie. The soundtrack was boppy, the blend between African culture and science fiction was awesome. Also, T'Chaka and friends did not disappoint. I was impressed by Andy Serkis, who aged quite a bit since his Gollum days, but showed he is a damn good actor, not just for motion-capture. Martin Freeman's was so-so. Lupita Nyong'o and Letitia Wright did much better! <3

The movie is unfortunately heavy on afro-american racism and segregation problems. So the movie is reduced to the colour of skin and how problematic that is in the United States, while the movie had all the ingredients to be so much more. Only because the US has a problem and Hollywood has to make statements. Sigh.

Oh well, at least this was the last movie before the upcoming finale.

Bring on the Infinity War! :D

Went to see Red Sparrow yesterday. If you're into naked Jennifer Lawrence, you'll love this film.

Was not that great.

Went to see Ready Player One. really enjoyed that. the story is rather different than the book, but that didn't bother me at all.

Finally saw Ready Player One. Really enjoyed it. Haven't read the book yet, so I don't have a comparison, but it's on the list!

Went to see Ready Player One as well. Really enjoyed it. It was different from the book, but a good adaption.

The Endless was an indie horror film that lured me in with an interesting trailer and then delivered an interesting film. I definitely enjoyed it. It is a Lovecraftian affair featuring cults and ancient weird things, so if you are into that, then go for it. The movie is out on digital here in the US and is pretty cheap. I know it will be released in the UK soon and I have no idea when it is getting a physical release in any region.

Annihilation was great. It is a fairly awful adaptation of the books, which are great, but it does its own thing and I won't begrudge it for that. Still, I would love to see a closer adaptation to the book... if only because it did away with some of the things that I loved most about the book and the main character.

Incredibles 2 was somewhere below OK. It definitely wasn't as good as the first, but it had moments of greatness. There were a lot of dull moments though and the movie was hella predictable. Plus there was one character that looked exactly like the reporter from Megamind and that bothered the heck out of me.
