Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 2/4

 
PROS –
1) Bill Hader as J.P. Spamley and his sidekick Gord were definitely the two best characters.
2) John C. Reilly as Ralph delivered as expected. The post-credit rick-rolling was spot on.

 
CONS –
1) The countless pop-culture references in every other movie are not making it better. It’s rather getting sickening.
2) The entire BuzzzTube plot was very dystopian and probably planted in the plot on purpose.

Justice League (2017)

ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 2/5

 

 

Pros –
1) DC establishing that Superman is indeed the strongest DC superhero
2) Aquaman playing “Jason Momoa” – rowdy, drunk and foul-mouthed
3) 2 hrs running time – not wasting time in the origin story of Cyborg and Flash.

 

 

Cons –
1) The resurrection of Superman is over-simplified.
2) Steppenwolf – generic run-of-the-mill supervillain trying to destroy the world.
3) DC needs to get rid of Zack Snyder. He’s worn out and got nothing new to offer in this genre.

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –

 

 

1) Knightmare sequence – though unexplained – is the best 5 minutes sequence of the movie.
