The Nice Guys is the latest movie from Shane Black… it’s pleasantly surprising, but still no classic.
NYSM2 is a solid and interesting follow up to the original, though not quite as successful. There’s nothing wrong with it per se; the worst complaint I could levy against it is that it’s a little repetitive in its structure and villains, and lacks a jaw dropping plot twist like the original had.
Kubo is a great and moving story, but it’s too relentlessly dark and grim for my tastes.
Well, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
Just in case you think I'll like anything, I did not like this movie. I was not a huge fan of the first one. It certainly had some impressive visuals, but they were also extremely cartoonish CGI. And the story just wasn't that interesting. It was a very vanilla...
If you can look past all that and enjoy it on a superficial child-like level, it’s pretty entertaining.
While it certainly had some problems I found it to be a pretty enjoyable experience.
Dory is a solid and satisfying follow up to that classic, only falling short of it by a hair.
While not as good as the original, the sequel is a magical walk down nostalgia lane.
The modern day she-boot unfortunately fails to hit that combination, but remains an entertaining watch.
