Re: Rate / Review the Last Film you've seen v.3

Little - Painfully bad. It was a struggle to sit through it, it was so bad. There were a few funny moments, but mostly it was just tedious. It just missed on so many levels. 2/10

Us - well made, pretty scary. The metaphorical interpretations I have read do not fit well at all, but that is what others say about it, not the movie itself. There are, however, so many things that make no sense unless it is taken as an attempted metaphor rather than an internally consistent narrative. Still as a horror movie, it did the trick, and you almost always have to suspend a lot of critical thought with most horror movies. 6/10

Just saw A Silent Voice recently. It's a very good movie. The animation and cinematography are very well done and the movie is very moving. I give it an 8/10.

The relationship between Hiccup and Toothless, as always the core of the series, continues to show an organic progression, leading to a satisfying, albeit bittersweet conclusion. The whole Dragon series has been fantastic, and I highly recommend the entire trilogy as quality entertainment.
Finally got to see that and liked it pretty well. Might have to give it another watch though sometime. Loved the conclusion and how things turned out for them. It gets a solid 7/10 from me overall.

Re: Rate / Review the Last Film you've seen v.3

Stuber - better than the reviews made it sound. We have seen the genre 100 times - overly macho guy gets trapped into going through a bunch of stuff with overly wussy guy, and macho guy learns to be more sensitive and wussy guy learns to be more assertive and/or physical. It plays out well on-screen. The reviews however had to hit it as 'toxic masculinity being tamed' - blah blah blah. Such verbage is poison, but that's not the movie's fault so - 5/10

The Hustle - not good at all, barely tolerable. At least the plot and execution hung together, so that at least puts it ahead of Little (see above). 3/10
