    It is structured like a greek tragedy, so yes, good in my book ^^

    Meh, everything's too cliché in this one.
    The villain is cliché.
    The hero is cliché.
    The plot is cliché.

    Nothing new, exciting or original.
    Starts with Mankind was dumb and ends up with Mankind is Great!

    Furiosa




    Formulaic.
    Same explosions, same stunts, same characters.
    Visually stunning but lacking in storytelling.

    There are pretty messed-up people and messed-up things happening.

    The stakes feel higher when there's no demon to blame.

    Some bits were nice, and others were crap.
    How was she saved? Holding onto a rope ladder from a helicopter?

    Hit Man (2023)

    The start was not the best for me but overally the story was compelling and there were good performances.

    The Strangers: Chapter ONE

    Worst horror movie I've seen in a while.
    No originality, no novelty & no ingenuity.
    Same idiots from the first one, masked or unmasked, still idiots.

    Also, I got nothing against clichés but at least TRY to be original about it, you know?

    The Watchers


    Look, I really, really, really wanted to like this one buut...
    amazing cinematography aside, I can safely say that after being spoon-fed info-dump of Irish Mythology for an hour, I just find this movie to be:

    boring & formulaic.

    Also, nonsensical at some points.
    But hey, look on the bright side! Shyamalan's brood shows some promise.

    Kubi (2023)


    Samurai, in a realistic light.
    This film shows them as they really were:

    sadistic, darkly humorous and quite mad.

    Takeshi is back in style.

    This was good.
    Not great, but good.

    They managed to create a real sense of Intimacy between the two characters and also added an adorable & strangely taciturn cat.
    What's not to like?

    I agree. For me horror didn't have so strong presence as in previous two films.

    For Frodo.




    Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (2024)

    I liked how it expanded Furiosa. Chris Hemsworth did an outstanding role.

    God of War (China, 2017; director Gordan Chan)

    Yes, has not something to do with the video fantasy game with same name, but it is an impressive history spectacle movie, which contains strategy, tactics and realism with strong characters.
    Imo. wholly underated on IMDb.
    I haven't seen something to really complain about, so it gets 10/10 by me, in this genre.

    Bad Boys: Ride or Die (2024)

    This was fun. Too bad it was so long from the last one that I couldn't recall what was going on there.

    Movie was ok but I'm not a fan of the make-up they put on David Duchovny to make him look old.
    Come on, man!
    The guy is only 32, right?

    Right?!
