It's been 6 years... since the original... but now, back by popular demand comes:

MOVIE MINI-REVIEW THREAD - Part II

And to commemorate this bodacious event, a quote... from a movie...

"Every story has an ending, but in life, endings are just beginnings."

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) - 7/10

Why did Superman stop the Batman giving chase to those guys in the truck?

The Stanford Prison Experiment. 8/10. Intriguing true story about psycho experiment that went horribly wrong. Thought provoking with a very good performance by "John Wayne"

Get Hard - 6.5/10

Way better than I thought it would be. That "prison riot" scene killed me :D

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) - 6/10

Didn't find it amazing, Mad Max:Fury Road was still better.

The entire story was weak. Including Batman choosing not to listen to reason, the movie makers just wanted them to fight however implausible or feeble the motivation.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)
Story line 3/10 - Final battle let down.
Visual Quality(Scenery and setting)- 9/10 (Nice to see millenium falcone, All planets and costumes is excellent)

Original Star wars was a story of the underdog fight against the All powerful, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is more like supergirl she is skilled, super strong and can fight. I think if she was weaker in the 1st, it sets up the rest of the series better.The return of the Jedi was the best movie of all star wars because the underdog finally had a chance to win.

Syriana 8/10. Revisited this masterpiece because I did don't know what the f was going on the first time around. Still didn't until this graphic helped out a bit. Quality writing and directing.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - 7/10

Plot is good IF..IF..IF you know the background. I didn't and originally gave the film a 5/10.
That said, the film is too long and there are many chapters where I lost interest.
Action and cinematography was good though.
