I think all fans would agree that Pet Sematary didn't need a sequel. The connection to the main story (aside from the location) is threadbare, so this could have just as easily been a standalone movie.
That said, it's a fun (if silly) film, and Clancy Brown steals the show with his performance. Disengage your brain, sit back and enjoy the ride.
Considering how good Conjuring 1 & 2 are, the spin-offs all seem to suffer from a curse of mediocrity.
The first Annabelle movie was just dismal in every way. The sequel/prequel I thought was rather good. It had an interesting premise, a great location and was a pretty solid origin story. It also tied in with the first movie very well.
Annabelle Comes Home falls somewhere in the middle. It is not terrible - and worth a watch if you like…
I will say I didn't have too many expectations from this - but in the end, this is a fun monster film. The overall story is good, and aside from a bit too much melodrama between the characters and a bit of questionable line delivery, it kept me entertained.
Some of the CGI didn't look great (in my opinion, if it wasn't lit so brightly, it would have come across a lot better), but it was serviceable - on the…
The cast did a pretty decent job given the material they were given, and while the overall story got stretched a bit thin for the runtime, this was a good little creature feature.
Some of the CGI effects are a bit basic, but overall they do a good job and great to see them also using some practical work especially for the blood and gore effects.
First I want to state that I don't know anything about Pokémon (aside from a few characters, mostly because of memes and media references), never watched, read or played it.
Having said that - this is a pretty decent movie. It has amusing moments, some of the CGI is really well done, and even had me laughing on occasion.
It's not a deep movie by any stretch, but if you want to shut off your brain for 90 minutes and watch something light hearted, there are far worse movies you could pick.
The Meg - while not a patch on the novel - is good popcorn entertainment. When I first heard Jason Statham was cast in the role of Jonas, I was convinced this would be terrible (not that I don't like JS, but he just didn't suit the role for me). However after watching, he did a good job.
The movie does not take itself seriously, and so the cast feel a bit more relaxed. Many scenes are remakes of the…
