I finally saw Minions: The Rise of Gru in theaters during National Cinema Day: September 3rd.

it is the sequel to the spin-off prequel Minions (2015), the movie is about Young Gru plans to become a supervillain with the help of his Minions which leads to a showdown with a malevolent team, the Vicious 6.

The movie was good, fun, entertaining and hilarious: great to see Steve Carell back voicing Gru, a younger version of the character and Pierre Coffin voicing the Minions, also familiar characters that we seen before.

I give this movie 4 stars.

Last Saturday, I saw Thor: Love and Thunder in theaters; I enjoyed this movie, it was fun, entertaining, hilarious and emotional.

Seeing Thor’s journey moving forward after the events of Avengers: Endgame, it was great to see Jane Foster back who is now the Mighty Thor, along with Korg and Valkyrie, also there’s a lot of surprise appearances and more.

I saw Sonic 2 in theaters, I enjoyed the movie. it was fun,
epic and entertaining.

The first movie was introduction of Sonic’s story and this one is the
beginning of his journey, meeting Tails and Knuckles.

Ben Schwartz, Colleen O’Shaughnessey and Idris Elba, the three of them did
an excellent job voicing Sonic, Tails and Knuckles.

Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik aka Eggman, his performance was awesome. also
James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Lee Majdoub and Adam Pally were
great.

I give this movie an “A”

Uncharted (2022) Movie Review by Angel

I never played the game, but I’ve heard about it and now it has become a live action movie.

Spider-Man actor Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, both play Nathan Drake and Drake’s mentor Victor “Sully” Sullivan.

I enjoyed the movie, it was fun and entertaining. Cool action sequences, the movie is a mix of Indiana Jones and Nicolas Cage’s 2 National Treasure movies. Also both Tom and Mark, their performances/chemistry were great.

This was a big movie moment for Tom Holland, Spider-Man: No Way Home to Uncharted.

I give this movie 10/10.

Marvel Studios’ Black Widow Movie Review

undefined

From the beginning; we got to see Natasha Romanoff’s journey in Iron Man 2 to Avengers: Endgame, and also learn a bit of her history in the first Avengers movie.

In her first solo movie of Phase 4: we will finally learn what Natasha’s been doing during the events of Captain America: Civil War and leading up to Infinity War and Endgame

I got to see the movie in theaters and I really enjoyed the movie: it’s action-packed, fun and thrilling.

Great cinematography, the music and more. excellent performances by Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pugh, David Harbour and Rachel Weisz, also O-T Fagbenle, Ray Winstone, Olga Kurylenko and William Hurt did great.

I give this movie an A+ and 10/10

This is Scarlett Johansson’s last movie with Marvel. I know that the multiverse is gonna be a big part of the MCU. Who knows, she will return or not…but the character: Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow lives on.

Justice League (The Snyder Cut) First Impressions by Chris M.

Superman. Batman. Wonder Woman. The trinity of DC’s Finest Heroes who would unite the League in their fight for Earth against the malevolent Darkseid and his Apokaliptian forces! But enough about Truth & Justice! This is about filmmaker Zack Snyder’s vision for our favorite superhero team-up, a tonally different picture from 2017’s Justice League movie.

Written by Oscar-nominated Chris Terrio, who also co-wrote J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode 9 from 2019, Mr. Snyder’s version of the JL is ironically the polar opposite of the League we remember from our childhood. No wonder it’s been rated R (yes it’s true) for bloody violence and harsh profanity. One question remains in our minds: is this film supposed to be for us as DC fans or for the filmmakers’ divisive enjoyment?

Well… Okay, Zack Snyder’s Justice League takes place after Superman’s “death” at the end of “Batman VS. Superman Dawn of Justice”. In the aftermath of this tragic event, Batman, or jokingly “Batfleck”, (Ben Affleck) is touched by his former enemy’s sacrifice, even though he was terrible to him beforehand. Unfortunately, Superman’s fall only triggers good news for a greater threat located in the cosmos. Yes, I’m talking about DARKSEID (Ray Porter)!

Apokalips’ sole ruler heard the “bells” of Superman’s death and sends his axe-wielding general and uncle Steppenwolf (Ciaran Hinds) to go find the three Mother Boxes, a trio of dangerous artifacts that can help their possessors travel across the universe through Boom Tubes and can even locate an even more powerful item that Darkseid has longed to possess… The Anti-Life Equation!

Whoever possesses this force-like power can erase free-will from across the galaxy! Sounds terrifying, right? Now in order to stop Darkseid and Steppenwolf’s invasion, Batman and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are forced to bring together three other superheroes into their alliance and help protect Earth: The Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and depressed former football player-turned robot man, Cyborg (Ray Fisher) who is said to be the heart of the League’s story.

But should the entire alliance fail to save the world, it would become a dreaded “Knightmare” version of itself, ruled by Darkseid’s regime faction and his army of Parademons, who, in this film, are created from mortal beings unfortunate enough to stand in his way. Yeah, it’s scary to think that. The only odd thing I’d find in the “Knightmare” world would be that Batman and his allies must rely on unexpected allies…

Yes, even the Joker (Jared Leto) himself sides with Bats to rise against the Apokalipians in this alternate future.

(Sighs), such liberties you guys take for this.

Honestly, I’m worried over what Zack did to our childhood memories. The original JL was fun, but kind of odd, so I guess this cut will paint a clearer picture than the former, so brace yourselves when it debuts on HBO Max set for March 18th.

Running time? About 240 mins. Wait, what? THAT long?! Oh well. I’ve warned you.

Verdict: 1.9 out of 5

Pixar Soul Review by Sonja

Pixar's Soul to Debut on Disney+ This Christmas!

I recently watched Soul the newest Pixar movie on Disney Plus. It was such a good movie the story centers around a man named joe who wants to be a jazz musician but is a music teacher. Through the movie he learns his life was full of happy moments and to not take life for granted and enjoy every moment of it at the end. The animation is beautiful as always from Pixar and the voice acting is top notch with the talents of Jamie Fox, and Tina Frey. The jazz music is amazing! It sounds like you’re really there listening to these great musicians. For anyone whose is a fan of Jazz and Pixar I suggest watching it.

The Muppet Christmas Carol Movie Review by Sonja

Watch The Muppet Christmas Carol | Full Movie | Disney+

Here is my review for The Muppet Christmas Carol. I wanted to get into the Christmas spirit so what better way to do that than with a watching a Christmas movie. I love the muppets they are fun and charming to watch and watching them do a Charles Dickens novel was really fun to see. Gonzo as The author was great and Rizzo as himself was funny. My favorite scene is when they get knocked off the carriage and Rizzo calls him Gonzo instead of Charles which made me laugh hard. This movie is a great way to get ready for Christmas and a great movie to watch with loved ones.
