If I’m not mistaken, every version of the invisible man has always had the plot of the man using his miracle of science to do something creepy to a woman.
The biggest trouble with this movie is the unbelievable loud and poor soundtrack. It really spoils this film. As far as the story goes it is pretty routine horror. I prefer the 1933 sci-fi horror treat, where Claude Rains is wrapped in bandages.
If you like Harrison Ford, or dogs, or animals, or nature, or great feel good stories, or all of the above, you will enjoy this movie. I can’t really think of anything bad about it. She who must be obeyed and I enjoyed every minute of it.
This is a woman power movie. It’s not the worst movie. Let’s just say it’s entertaining. DC tried to make Harley into the Deadpool of their Universe. It is funny and it has lots of sporadic action.
The hyena could have been in the movie a bit more.
Best shows I’ve been watching:
Merlin – don’t miss
Marco Polo – don’t miss

The Last Kingdom – don’t miss, written by author of Sharpe books.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – good

The Lobster – acquired taste
Swiss Army Man
I have not had this much fun watching a movie in a long time, so do not miss it. We don’t really get movies like this anymore. This is a whole different class of film.
Charlie Hunnam is legitimately scary. McConaughey nails his role. Colin Farrell has a great comedic role. A special mention goes out to Hugh Grant, who is far removed from his pigeonholed romantic comedy role to deliver a fantastic performance.
The script is crisp and witty, the continual plot twists keep you on your toes. There’s only one rule in the jungle: when the lion’s hungry, he eats!
While 1917 is realistically gruesome, director Sam Mendes depicts the horrors of war – beautifully. By that I mean, even the most horrifying and sad shots in the film, while highly stimulating in the aesthetic and emotional sense, are never extremely graphic, and you are never hit over the head with it. 1917, in this way, is a beautiful artistic masterpiece, never straying close to being shock art, but not holding back at the same time.
There is an especially touching scene in a bombed-out town where paths are crossed with a French woman (Claire Duburcq) caring for an orphaned infant. It’s a reminder that humanity still exists, even within the bounds of war.
A great film.
An enjoyable period drama about the growing up and loves of a group of sisters in 1800’s America. Superb acting from the cast and a great depiction of the presentation of the era, although it is all a bit too clean and idyllic at times. There isn’t a strong single plot but instead a selection of events which are interesting enough and never dull.
I just don’t know why this extremely confusing trilogy was even made. They should have started with Old Republic, and left the Skywalker Saga to be what it was. I was so depressed after The Last Jedi. But after this one, I am just sad. Very, very sad… My Star Wars Skywalker Saga will always be first 6 Episodes.
You know you have to go to finish the story; but maybe wait until the DVD hits the bargain table.
