Avatar (2009) Review

avatar

RATING: 2.5/5

[SPOILERS]

A man is caught between the conflict of humans and the native inhabitants of an alien world. It is there he must choose the side he feels is right.

In 2009, this was the highest-grossing film of all-time. Back then, I was like everyone and was blown away from the experience. Though now watching it again, while it does retain some of that spark, it doesn’t quite live up to everything.

Ad Astra (2019) Review

RATING: 2.5/5

[SPOILERS]

An astronaut has to venture to the edge of the solar system to stop a potential cataclysm. As well as stopping his father who may be causing it.

A movie that I had some expectations of being good. A film that has to do with space travel which I’m usually a bit of a sucker for. But unfortunately, all that whimsical and spectacle didn’t get me fulfilled all the way.

District 9 (2009) Review

RATING: 3/5

[SPOILERS]

Aliens who crash land on Earth are not given the best living conditions and arn’t treated with plenty of respect. Things don’t get better when they’re asked to move out. Things also don’t go better for the main character who crosses paths with one alien and his son who wish to return back to their planet.

Director Neill Blomkamp’s feature film debut. He and producer Peter Jackson bring forth a film that had garner acclaim 10 years ago. Understandably since it deals with pretty heavy and relevant themes/issues that to this day are still alive today. I just wish it was executed a smidge better.
