https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjDjIWPwcPU Kersti Rating: I really regret that I have to give it a 6/10. Worth Seeing in Theaters: Hell yeah, its gorgeous. MVP: The visuals, are amazing, the cultural considerations are awesome, the characters are hilarious and super fucking cool. But the story......I just could not get into the story. Which is really sad because… Continue reading Black Panther Movie Review
The Death of Stalin Trailer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukJ5dMYx2no&t=29s Coming out in the US March 9. A friend of mine recommended this trailer to me. This movie looks flippin' hilarious. Apparently based on a graphic novel, La mort de Staline. Looking forward to this semi-historical absurdity.
Disaster Artist Movie Recomendation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMKX2tE5Luk Kersti Rating: 7/10 MVP: If you have seen The Room, and enjoyed how awful it was, you will love The Disaster Artist. If you haven't I HIGHLY recommend seeing The Room before you see The Disaster Artist so that you have some context. Otherwise, the movie might feel like one long inside joke that… Continue reading Disaster Artist Movie Recomendation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rvr68u6k5sI Kersti Rating: 10/10 Worth Seeing In Theaters: Most definitely yes. The movie is amazing and beautiful and deserving of a 10/10 regardless of visuals, but the visuals are pretty darn stunning. MVP: I cannot recommend this movie enough. I have not enjoyed an animated film this much since Song of the Sea or Finding Nemo.… Continue reading Coco Recommendation
Thor: Ragnarok Recommendation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue80QwXMRHg Kersti Rating: 8/10 Worth Seeing In Theaters: Yes. There are a few scenes that are just really cool to see on a giant screen. But if you miss it in theaters, don't sweat it. It really isn't anything you haven't seen in a theater before. MVP: Thor Ragnarok was a thoroughly fun movie. It follows Guardians… Continue reading Thor: Ragnarok Recommendation
The Annihilation Trailer is Out!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufaDurSCKOk The second of my 'books to read before they become movies in 2018' now has a trailer! And it looks really awesome. Somehow they have nailed the visuals for me. They are sufficiently surreal, with just the right amount of familiarity to put it on that border of unnerving and creepy. It seems like,… Continue reading The Annihilation Trailer is Out!
IT Movie Recommendation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKJmEC5ieOk Kersti Rating: 8/10 Worth Seeing In Theaters: There are some pretty awesome visuals that are cool to see in a theater setting, but overall the theater experience didn't feel entirely necessary to the enjoyment of the movie. I recommend seeing IT while in theaters, but no need to lament if you miss the opportunity.… Continue reading IT Movie Recommendation
Blade Runner 2049 Movie Recommendation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZOaI_Fn5o4 Kersti Rating: 8/10 Worth Seeing In Theaters: Yes the visuals are amazing and worth seeing on a giant screen. But go only if you can stand loud Inception-like soundtracks. MVP: I haven't seen the original Blade Runner in a very long time, and I remember surprisingly little about it. 2049 stands on its own as a… Continue reading Blade Runner 2049 Movie Recommendation
The Frozen Disappointment
This post contains spoilers for the movie Frozen. I wanted to like Frozen. I would like to start off by clarifying that I don't think Frozen is a bad movie. It has many truly wonderful aspects, and was more enjoyable to me than some previous Disney films. Both things I expected to have to tolerate, namely… Continue reading The Frozen Disappointment
Little Evil Movie Review
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mnj-MXs1yVU Kersti Rating: 7/10 On Netflix! MVP: Not cinema gold, but worth watching. If you are a stepparent, or (like me) have a stepparent that you love, this movie is for you. What starts off as an amusing concept eventually becomes a surprisingly touching story about the unique challenges that new step children and step… Continue reading Little Evil Movie Review
