The Highlight is Dunkirk

Over the last couple of weeks I saw The Discovery (2017), Win It All (2017), Dunkirk (2017), Valerian (2017), Shoot 'Em Up (2007), Ghost in the Shell (2017), An Inconvenient Sequel (2017), Atomic Blonde (2017) and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017).

The Discovery

It's an interesting concept with a very flawed logic driving the plot. This is well made with a good cast and is a nice movie for a Netflix release.

Noms: none

Letterboxd review.

Win It All

This doesn't quite succeed for comedy but it is a nice movie. I feel like the washed out tone doesn't quite fit right with the story.

Noms: none

Dunkirk

This is in the very top of my favorite movies of the year in a very crowded field of great movies so far. One of my favorite things about this movie is just watching the areal shots of planes over the water.

Noms: Christopher Nolan for writing and directing, Hoyte van Hoytema for cinematography, The score for the movie by Hans Zimmer, Special effects for the film.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

The first ten minutes of this movie are fantastic and everything after that is a stinker. Wooden acting, annoying CGI characters, a perplexing love story and a rehash of Avatar, this movie has everything!

Noms: none.

Shoot 'Em Up

Overkill, and not in a fun way.

Noms: none

Letterboxd review.

Ghost in the Shell

This wasn't as bad as I thought it could be, but it still wasn't all that engaging of a story.

Noms: none

Letterboxd review.

An Inconvenient Sequel

This is certainly informative about climate change, political efforts to make things better and challenges to positive efforts. I like Al Gore but this focuses too much on his worldwide tour of education rather than showing direct impacts of climate change. It felt more like an infomercial than a documentary by the end of the movie.

Noms: none

Letterboxd review.

Atomic Blonde

Definitely a better story than the John Wick movies, but the color palate is still rather unappealing to me and the spy story feels one step away from being complex enough to create intrigue.

Noms: stunts.

Letterboxd review.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

This is a reverse Valerian. The first section of the movie (before Arthur's story kicks in) doesn't land quite right but everything gets more interesting as it plays out.

Noms: none

Letterboxd review.

All '07, '12, and '17.
