Movies have really sucked lately. However glad Everything, Everywhere cleaned up at the awards. It deserved it.
Black Panther 2 (Disney +) - I let this one marinate a bit before watching. The first BP was over rated, but was still a descent super hero film. This one went off the rails starting with the run time. 3 hours is a long time for something good. It's horrible when the film sucks. Basically if you are white be prepared to learn how aweful you are. If you are from a country not located in African be prepared to learn how horrible you are. It wasn't enough to have one ficticious nation refer to all white people as colonizers or slave owners they also had to completely rewrite the origin story of an almost 90 year old villian to make him preach to you as well. Namor is no longer from Atlantis, but a descendent of Mayans, who you guessed it were victimized by white colonizers. He basically wants to destroy them all with only Wakanda standing in his way, even though some of them think he is right. Not much plot other than that and trying to shoehorn in Ironheart to the MCU. 3/10.
Luther: The Fallen Sun (Netflix) - Idris Elba and Andy Serkis. Never watched the BBC show, but heard it was really good. You don't need to see the show to follow. He is a detective that will do what it takes to catch a serial killer. He gets close to one and is convicted of crimes that the killer was able to expose. The killer then taunts him in prison. He devises a plan to escape to finish his last case. The one is actually pretty good. Slow at times, but very well done. The guy he's after is pretty twisted and sets a good cat and mouse game. 7/10
We Have a Ghost (Netflix) - Anthony Mackie and David Harbor star. A family moves into a house that has a ghost. The kid befriends him and helps him solve his murder so he can cross over. Starts out as a comedy with him becoming a star and ends more dramatic as they solve everything. Had a little gut punch at the end. 6/10
Your Place or Mine (Netflix) - Witherspoon and Kutcher. Has some funny moments, but is a Hallmark movie with cuss words and sex. Ending fell flat. 5/10
Sharper (Apple TV) - Couldn't make it past the first hour. I thought this movie sucked and gave up. N/A
Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile (Netflix) - The kids absolutely love this movie and actually pretty free of crap for the most part. Family moves into home, singing crocodile in the attick, kid befriends him, family gets closer with him helping. Typical kids movie, but worth the watch as a family. 6/10
You People (Netflix) - Eddie Murphy and Jonah Hill. Gave this a shot just because of Eddie Murphy. Hill falls in love with his daughter and I thought would be funny antics about him trying to get rid of the white boy. Instead you get two hours of the movie telling white people that no matter how hard they try everyone of them is a racist deep down. 2/10
