MARCH MOVIE RANKINGS:
I’m not dead people, don’t worry. I’ve just been really busy. So busy, in fact, that I’ve had hardly any time to do anything outside of school. Of course, school for me is making films, which isn’t so much work if you love doing it, but the situation still stands: I have been terrible with this site. Only three reviews for March? Yes. The rankings being posted in mid-April? Yes. I apologize. Hopefully things are brighter when the storm calms down here in film school.
#3- “Captain Marvel”
68%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Cool effects, great use of de-aging with Nick Fury, Coulson is back, and has some fun moments.
Cons: Quite a bit of the performances are abysmal, the story doesn’t hold weight, there are a few errors in continuity, how Nick Fury lost his eye was so lame, and the film as a whole was just disappointingly mediocre.
70%= Burnt Popcorn
Pros: Hilarious opening with Alec Baldwin, solid acting, funny at parts, fresh concept, and engaging.
Cons: The ending goes all over the place, feeling more like an epilogue than a rightful finish to the film.
#1- “First Man” (2018)
89%= Juicy Popcorn
Pros: Beautiful cinematography, great performances, good story, great character development, and really brings to life the dangers of being an astronaut.
Cons: The pacing can be a bit jumbled, as the film focuses on moments rather than a small string of time.
In a small race, “First Man” came out on top in March, moving on to face “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” “Green Book,” and the rest of the movie of the months to see if it has what it takes to become the next Movie of the Year.
