Stupid gimmick in any case.

The only good 2D -> 3D conversion I've seen is Lion King 3D,

The male lead actor is woefully miscast.
I really do not understand their choice here at all - Valérian is a little old and more of a classic sci-fi cowboy, who relies on his quick-draw and smooth talker skills to get him out of trouble. With Laureline being the actual competent one of the two.
While I have respect for DeHaan in some of his other roles, he's way too young and the role was written much more like a renegade Commander Shephard. Didn't fit the source material at all.
as i said elsewhere, the trailer for this turned me away. i knew nothing of the original comic when i saw the trailer. i heard of it in passing in reviews of the movie but this opinion is what i formed just from the trailer, before i even knew there was source material.
the trailer shows 2 unknown characters that look to be in their late teens be the top special agents of a federation of 1000 civilizations. a federation that big yet unable to defend itself from a threat that can end it in just 12 hours and somehow, these 2 teenagers are supposed to be capable of finding and eliminating that threat. the premise itself is outlandish, considering we do not deal with established and known characters (and world) from whom we know what to expect. so a 2 hour film they need to cram in all we need to know about the characters and all we need to know about the world they live in just to make a plot that is based on an outlandish premise feel coherent. and so the question comes naturally to mind "with all that, where will they find the time to fit a compelling story in all this", followed instantly by the scene of the 2 flirting on the beach which just sends the answer "they can't, this will be a bad film with no substance".
and the reviews i've seen seem to confirm it

I'm stuck near work for a couple hours before my Back to School Night, and I'm thinking about catching a movie. I'm having trouble deciding between Atomic Blonde, Lucky Logan, or Spiderman. Suggestions?
Posted 24 August 2017 - 12:19 PM
Spiderman's the only one I've seen of the three and it's very good, worth watching. I heard good things about Logan Lucky too, but mixed things about Atomic Blonde. If you haven't yet, I would definitely recommend Dunkirk though.

Spider-Man is probably my best bet, it starts the earliest and is at the closer theatre to me. Thanks everyone!

The Hitman's Bodyguard.
A great film about romance. Plus a few amusing banter points between Ryan Reynolds as the Bodyguard and Samuel L Jackson as the Hitman whose tried to kill him 28 times, as they road trip their way from Coventry to Hague to get to the ICC while being hunted by a lot of people.

I guess we're sop suppose to feel sympathy for the main character there because her daughter was murdered but any sympathy I felt evaporated by the end of the trailer. Still have empathy but no sympathy. She seems like a horrible unlikeable human being.

You sure about that?
We'll see how it is when it comes out but I suppose this is a story about the protagonist's alienation as well as her search. I don't think it'll go for sympathy - certainly the McDonagh characters so far have not been classically sympathetic.

Beyond The Gates (2016)
+ Retro feeling. 80ies tapes before DVD time.
+ Horror a bit.
Neutral. The actors are ok, but not super.
- Very low budget
My vote: 5.75/10 interesting and watchable if you are into Horror/mystery and don't mind very low budget.
Green Room (2016)
+ Brutal violence. Realistic "horror".
+ The enemy is fairly cool.
+ I like some things about it...
- Well not my kind of music.
My vote: 6.5/10 ok/good movie.
In movie theatres:
+ I guess realistic and based more or less on real events.
+ Nice battle.
- You kind of hope for more battle.
My vote: 7.5/10 good movie.
I must say war movies are not my favorite genre, but this one was good movie for me.
Annabelle Creation 2017
+ Retro back into the time of early 50 ies which is decades before I was born, but very interesting to watch.
+ Girls can be nice and fun to see what they do sometimes.
+ Beautiful girls the oldest look like a young beautiful woman age 16-20 I guess.
+ Have faith and believe in God... a slap to face for atheists..
+ However if there is Good there can be Evil...
- a bit boring and long movie.
My vote: 7.75/10 good /very good movie.

Power Rangers Movie - My son had been asking for this one for awhile, so I picked it up and we had a family movie night. It actually was much more entertaining than expected. Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks seemed to be having fun with their roles (Cranston plays a wall) and the kids we good. It had a bit of a Breakfast Club becomes superheroes feel to it. I honestly expected to lose interest at some point and wander off, but it was well done from start to finish. Blue Ranger was fantastic, reminded me of a few students I've had over the years on the spectrum, but they didn't overdue it and the whole movie was fun and lighthearted.
