    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Anakin's like "I just killed dozens of women and children" then Padmés like "it's ok to feel emotions Anakin".

    They should've cloned Yoda. Imagine an army of 10,000 Yoda's hopping around with their green lightsabers and incorrectly structured sentences.

    36/100

  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    ★★

    Does Spielberg know how time works? Like Jones would go from being seconds away from being crushed by something to being a safer distance away from it 3 shots later.

    No harm to him but Short Round was annoying as fuck.

    40/100

  • Eraserhead

    Eraserhead

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I usually don't like to give these types of "artistic" old fashioned movies whose main attraction consists of hidden symbolism made for pretentious film students to study and jerk off over much credit. But this is a properly disturbing depiction of a fully fledged nightmare (added to by that eerie wind noise in the background) that at times did impress me by how freakish and erratic it was.

    Don't get me wrong though, I still hated it just as much…

  • Ant-Man and the Wasp

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why exactly was there a group of black market dealers randomly in the midst of the conflict?

    The incredibly dislikable "no nonsense" Hope and immensely uncharismatic Hank Pym destroy this movie.

    42/100

  • Thor: The Dark World

    Thor: The Dark World

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why is Thor, the 6'6, godlike, almighty prince of Asgard, hung up over a girl as basic as Jane¿

    They really said "no, let's not spend time on the fascinating, godly King and Queen of Asgard but instead focus on 3 boring, ordinary, terribly unfunny people".

    44/100

  • The Incredible Hulk

    The Incredible Hulk

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why the fuck did Betty stop Hulk from killing the extremely dangerous, uncontollable monster of a villain¿

    This film is regarded as the second installment of the MCU series yet at the same time is distinctly a sequel from the 2003 Hulk movie. Such a stupid, unnecessary mix-up.

    36/100
