I saw Disney's new movie #JungleCruise yesterday. I'm a bit late to it and I'll explain why, but here's my review of the movie. Spoilers follow! (1/7)
I'm late to watching this movie because I originally planned to not see it at all. When I saw the trailer for it showing Dwayne Johnson in a jungle, I thought it seemed too much like Jumanji. I love those movies and I figured this would be a worse version of it. (2/7)
I was wrong -- sort of. While I still like the Jumanji movies more due to their much superior comedy, Jungle Cruise was not that bad. It had enough in it to make it unique in its own way, despite being set in a jungle and starring the Rock. (3/7)
The movie stars Dwayne Johnson as Frank the skipper, the owner of a boat he uses to take people on a tour of the jungle. Alongside him is Emily Blunt who plays Dr. Lily Houghton, the classic woman who's restrained by the gender norms of her time. (4/7)
Together they make a fun duo as they fall straight into an adventure together. It's a fun movie overall. It has great music and cinematography, and the cast play on each other very well. The plot is cliche, but there were some twists that I didn't predict. (5/7)
It feels like a movie made by a die-hard fan of Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean. It's not as great as either of those movies, but it's not bad either. The majority of the movie is just average. There's nothing to really make it stand out and be special. (6/7)
It certainly isn't very original. But it is a very fun movie that's very rewatchable. It's great for families and anyone looking for an escape for a little while. If you're looking for an average movie to keep you entertained, this is the movie for you. (7/7)
Overall, I would give #JungleCruise a 7/10. #JuicinessScale Image

Haven't done any movie reviews for a while but I just got back from watching #ThorLoveAndThunder , so I thought I'd share what I thought about it. Spoilers follow❗️
Initially, I wasn't really sure what I felt about this movie. It definitely had some really great moments and was an extremely fun and silly film that also touched on some deep subjects, however briefly.
That balance of silly and deep felt a little shakier than it did in the previously installment, though. Thor: Ragnarok is one of my favorite MCU movies and a definite improvement over both its predecessors.

Today I'm going to be reviewing one of my favorite films of all time, Back to the Future. I was out of ideas for movies to do for today, so I decided to go for this one because I'd seen it again recently and it's fresh on my mind. So let's get into it.
Like I mentioned, this is one of my favorite movies. This means that this review is probably going to be pretty one-sided. The movie was great, and I only have great things to say about it.
To start off with, my favorite thing about this movie is how everything is connected. You have the town of Hill Valley and then you have Marty McFly and his family. Everything revolves around that family as well as the town and the people in it.

Ok, so I planned to do this a lot sooner but I've been incredibly busy lately. Anyway, here's my review of #FearStreet Part 2: 1978. (1/8)
I planned to watch this movie a week after I watched the first, however it ended up being longer than that. When I did get around to watching it, the movie did a pretty good job of reminding me what went down. (2/8)
My favorite thing about this film, and really the trilogy in general, is how it's going further and further back in time with the more we learn about what's going on in Shadyside. Usually movies do this in the opposite way, but the way Fear Street does it is pretty cool. (3/8)

DC's newest film, #TheSuicideSquad, is now finally out. Here are my thoughts on the movie. Spoilers follow ❗️ (1/17)
I saw this movie on August 6, the day it came out. I was pretty excited to see what the Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn would do with a team of unknown villains this time rather than heroes, and I wasn't disappointed. (2/17)
Just like in the Guardians movie, Gunn managed to put together a collection of very different people and focus them on one common goal. The difference in this movie was that he had much more freedom and could make it focused toward mature audiences. (3/17)

If you didn't know, @MNightShyamalan's newest movie just hit theaters a couple of days ago. Here's what I thought about #OldTheMovie. Be advised: spoilers follow❗️ (1/12)
Okay, so there's a lot to unpack with this film. To start off with, I'll talk about the things I liked in this movie. For one, it was very original, as many of Shyamalan's movies are. I also liked the principle idea of being stranded on an island while aging constantly. (2/12)
This movie had an excellent plot and a decent cast, too. The cinematography is absolutely beautiful. The concept is all there as a foundation for a great movie. However, when you dive into things this movie starts to fall short of expectations a little. (3/12)

Okay, so the first movie I'm going to be talking about on this Twitter page is #BlackWidow. I saw this movie a little more than a week ago in theaters, and to say the least my expectations were exceeded. (1/11)
After the events of Avengers: Endgame, a movie about Black Widow seemed a little odd, if not unnecessary. When it was announced that this project would be a prequel, I think everyone lost a little bit of excitement for it. I know I did. (2/11)
I personally thought that this film wouldn't really have anything much to add to the MCU, and would just be another story about an action hero kicking butt. There was lots of that, of course, but the movie turned out to be so much more than that. (3/11)
