The Dark Knight Rises
Atlantis: The Lost Empire
The Predator in the theater (a moderate disappointment)
Solo: A Star Wars movie at home (not a bad movie but not one I feel I missed out on in the theater either)
Batman: Gotham Knight
Graveyard Shift (1990). Top that.
From Russia with Love (my very favourite Bond film until Skyfall came along, and even then it's damn close)
Jumanji 2. I expected something funnier.
Even for free it was too expensive.
Excrutiating dialogues, acting below absolut zero, forced emotionnl scenes.
But does Statham punch the shark??
I don't remember but he does some pretty Stathamesque stuff to the shark.
BATMAN NINJA (2018)
Quality = 4/10
Joy = 3/10
Ok art accompanied by shoddy animation, poor characterization and buffoon Batman, nonsensical plot, nonsensical logic, villain team-ups that make no sense and suddenly happen without rhyme or reason, foolish plot twists....
Spoiler: You really need to check this one, cause it's spoiler tagged for being considerate
Batman asks a guy in a Joker mask; "WHO SENT YOU?"
World's greatest detective.
The best things are the characterization of Robin, the homage to the 1966 intro theme, and the homage to Detective Comics 27 (1939 issue).
You both sat through better Batman experiences than the one I sat through.
X-men Days of Future Past
American Assassin (2017)
Boring and vastly inferior sequel completely lacking in every department that made the first so great, at times it feels like a DTV film, the most interesting aspect is spotting all of the familiar faces from various 80's action movies.
Smokey and the Bandit
Second half is where this film truly shines. Saddening, rage-driven affair with a stellar Nicolas Cage.
