frozen. If not for one or two songs, he would have been completely forgotten. The story is just incredibly bland by Disney standards.”

Club Breakfast. Even aside from the numerous “unaged” moments, the pace is terrible. You will have two characters screaming at each other and crying in one scene and then sneaking in to kiss in the next. This is silly”.

“It might piss some people off, but Avengers: Endgame. The movie was really boring until the final battle. The entire time travel segment was taking too long. There were also too many downtimes, which reduced stress, unlike Infinity War which kept me on my toes all the time. Three hours is too much.”


“If I have to stay awake all the time Interstellar to save my life, tell my wife that I love her.”

Quiet place. Monsters had super hearing and would rush to kill you for miles because your toy is noisy, but they can’t hear your noisy breathing (or your heartbeat) when they’re practically next to you? No government has thought to test a bunch of sonic frequencies as a weapon against a creature that hunts… by sound? Has your child survived this horrific apocalypse and seen people make noise and get killed, but is he deliberately doing something that is likely to make a fuss? Children in war zones learn to hide very quickly when aggressive militia groups appear nearby. Then the characters’ response to that would be a baby… and the plan is to put him in the box whenever he cries.”

“Oh, and I may have misremembered this moment, but I’m sure dad had other ways to distract the monster other than making a noisy suicide. I also found the characters individually very annoying, although the effects and scene building were actually pretty cute. well.”



Toy Story 4. Was not as good as the others.”

“It was overkill. For example, I thought we said goodbye to everyone in the third.”

“My top five favorite films of all time include Godfather, The Godfather Part 2, Renegadesand Real love. So I obviously love gangster movies. To answer the question: Face with a scar. It’s just not that good. It’s decent.”

The Dark Knight. The movie is based on Ledger’s (amazing) performance. But otherwise, it’s a ton of story armor, boring storylines, and thinly drawn characters like Dent, Dawes, the mayor, and even Gordon. The “choose the right thing or the thing that makes you happy” set of elements doesn’t age well. They are boring when viewed repeatedly. And it all sounds like Philosophy 101, the crap that restless teenagers say to each other when they stay up late at night.”

Warner Bros Pictures

Batman Begins it was much better. Original ideas, a really fresh rendition of the origin story, a fun side villain in Scarecrow, and an amazing ending scene.”



“I remember when every moody teenager in my neighborhood was obsessed 300 like it’s the epitome of stupidity. I thought it was fun, but I knew guys who watched this movie almost every day. It consumed their existence.”

Spiderman: No Way Home was really hyped because of the return of all the old characters. But the plot is weak and some of the main characters suddenly became minor characters who did not add anything to the plot. Also, the stories didn’t add up and had too many plot holes. It was fun to watch, but not as good as it looks in my opinion.”

Ready first player! Anyone who has read the book knows that the movie can’t even be named the same because they just took the titles from the book and threw the rest away.”

Dogma. He’s trying so damn hard to convince the audience that it’s their fault, that they can’t keep up with the story, which really just doesn’t make any sense.”

“I often see usual suspects discussed in the same frame with films such as Fight club and Sixth Sense, in the sense that the twist ending is smart in the sense that it changes your second view. In these films, the actions of the other characters are completely reimagined and make much more sense upon re-watching. AT usual suspects, all the revelations were made in the last five minutes, and until that moment the viewer cannot gather the truth himself. Very few clues as to what is really going on and nothing that will make your jaw drop afterwards. It’s still an enjoyable film, but nowhere near as smart and intricate as some make it out to be.”


“Most comedies in which Will Ferrell plays the lead role. I doubt they get critical acclaim, but my team of friends have loved them over the years. However, Ferrell is great in more supporting roles.”

star Wars continuation of the trilogy. The characters are paper thin, and somehow the story gets thinner even though it tries to be unique.”

Encanto. It’s really good, but it’s not surprising. The third act was very rushed and they sort of underused the plot because it didn’t have a human antagonist. It could have been better, but, in my opinion, it was undershot.

Taxi driver. Saw it for the first time the other day and loved it. So boring and the plot was terrible. Sorry, I just didn’t understand at all. I thought I was guaranteed a great time.”

Deadpool 2. The film itself was good, but it failed to capture light in a bottle, as it was no better than the first. Russell the Kid was written to be very annoying, Cable should have gotten more screen time, the humor was 7/10 at best, and the dead end plot was dubious.”

The Devil Wears Prada one of the most boring movies i have ever seen and i Like fashion and Ann Hataway.”


“Old but I still can’t understand the obsession Lubricant. Good choreography and that’s it. Cheesy, disgusting characters and a stupid plot. Terrible movie.”

“I tried several times to get into Harry Potter. I grew up when they came out and I just couldn’t get into them. I even tried to read books. Probably not my jam.”

Napoleon Dynamite. I watched it once and couldn’t understand why it’s such a popular movie.”

“Unpopular opinion, but La La Land. The whole premise of the movie was that a stranger accidentally bumps into the female protagonist and she harbors a festering grudge for months and then one day accidentally stumbles upon him and expects him to remember her and apologize and acts like he tells her owe something. . I turned off the film twice, only halfway through, and this was one of those times. I really tried, but the plot was so boring and random that I couldn’t finish it.”

adolescence. If it hadn’t been made for such a long period of time, it would have been a crappy film that wouldn’t have gotten a lot of praise.”

Mission impossible row. How many impossible missions do they have to complete before they start naming movies Mission is possible?”

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. That’s at least an hour more.”

Joker. This is the most unoriginal and pointless movie I have ever seen. All they did was redo King of Comedy with allusions to Taxi driver. Joaquin’s performance was great, but the film and its idea were terrible.”
