Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is not a bad Star Wars film - I like how it started, but I found the storyline of Revenge of the Sith good but really dark (and rather sad) - then again, it is the story of how Anakin became the one and only Darth Vader.
Plus, what's with Chewbacca joining the other Wookies into battle with the Sith? He was with Solo the whole time way before the events of this film - wonder how on earth he appeared back home? That bit could have been explained properly, I guess.
I liked Anakin and Obi-Wan's lightsaber duel, but I didn't like how it ended. It was too sad, with Anakin screaming, burning up from the lava flames and actually becoming a bad guy full time.
It's an epic Star Wars film, but it could leave you feeling sorry for everything - if you know what I mean.

Winnie the Pooh
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I recall watching Winnie The Pooh when I was a kid, so I watched this 2011 reboot of the franchise. It is a good movie, but my reception to this movie is rather mixed.
I like the songs 'The Backson Song', 'It's Gonna Be Great' and 'Everything Is Honey', my least favourite one though is 'A Very Important Thing To Do'. Basically, I don't really see the point in Winnie The Pooh being a musical franchise - I don't know why, exactly, but I don't think it's that necessary to have musical numbers all the time in the franchise.
I like the humour, the jokes, the voice acting, and the animation (even though it is just drawn animation), and it does sort of help with John Cleese narrating, but I think the storyline is a little too average. It almost feels like two stories with a short length - first Eeyore loses his tail, and then everyone assumes that Christopher Robin has been captured by the so-called Backson. I mean, seriously, why would you would have something epic in a story that isn't really epic? All of Rabbit's planning and everyone adventuring for nothing! It could have been a massively epic twist if Christopher Robin really was captured by a baddie even if not the Backson, right? Okay, so the Backson made an appearance after the credits, but then again, they've spoiled everything and turned him into a nice character.
Every time I watch Winnie The Pooh, I keep noticing that they don't add anything new to the franchise, which is virtually annoying. The characters stay in the same location, never getting out of the woods, never going anywhere new.
I have no doubt that the live action Christopher Robin film is going to be a million times better though.
So anyway, if you really like Winnie The Pooh, give this a shot, but if you're buying it expecting something really new in the franchise, I wouldn't recommend it.

Avengers: Infinity War
4 years ago via Flixster

First time I checked Avengers: Infinity War out at the cinema, I found it kind of confusing and was a little disappointed with the ending.
I thought it wouldn't be something worth watching again, until I thought it would be better seeing it again if I'm sitting at a good spot understanding the story a bit more with a friend of mine who is an Avengers fan.
The second time I saw it, I actually really liked it, despite the ending that could give Avengers fans chills. I like the humour, the story, and the characters (even if I don't know a lot of the Marvel characters very well) - and I find it very amusing when the Guardians of the Galaxy meet The Avengers.
Looking forward to Part 2 when it comes out.

Sherlock Gnomes
4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

After watching the trailer for Sherlock Gnomes, I had lots of hopes about this film when I went to see it on 7th May with a friend of mine.
The first five minutes of the film was very interesting (with the funny red goon gnomes introducing the tale) and with Sherlock Gnomes and Watson taking action in a museum too before the opening title came in.
However, I am so sorry to say this, but the rest film got so disappointing and not even Johnny Depp could save this dire try-hard comedy.
It basically feels as if an original Sherlock Holmes story has been stolen, not to mention that they stole the original Sherlock Holmes and Watson characters and turned them into bloody gnomes (pardon my language)!
Plus, I found the villain and some of the animation a bit creepy - but even worse, a couple of the very funny moments from the trailer (like the moment where Mankini jumped into quicksand and the moment where Sherlock Gnomes accidentally broke a red goon gnome when he arrived on the scene of the crime) were strangely cut out of the film!
The film did have its moments as well, but apart from that, I've already cracked the case of checking out whether this film is terrible or not. It's terrible. Not bad, but so not great.
