Greyhound, The Game Of Death and Desperados (2020)

Early in World War II, an inexperienced U.S. Navy captain must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolfpacks.

Greyhound is one of those movies that has a lot of great technical stuff like the action scenes, sound effects, filming and so on but not so good acting (with the exception of Tom Hanks and maybe a few others), writing, character development ect. The action scenes combined with the sound is definitely when the movie is at it’s high point, they are really effected and standout from this mess. Tom Hanks gives a fine performance but it isn’t something I would call amazing or even solid. The major problem here is the character development…it’s nonexistent which is a huge problem especially in a war movie. Where the characters are a very heavy focus without development you lose an attachment and when something terrible happens you aren’t going to feel anything towards any of the characters. The writing is very weak and really doesn’t do a whole lot to help the movie stand, it’s quite honestly some of the most simplistic and forgettable writing I’ve heard so far this year. Filming is definitely strong at least the movie has a very decent look to it which is nice, but as I said the many problems with this movie stick out like a sore thumb. Overall Greyhound is not something I would recommend, unless your a war movie fanatic.

Kill or be killed is the golden rule of the Game of Death. Sucks for seven millennials who ignored that rule. Now each one’s head will explode unless they kill someone. Will they turn on each other to survive, or will this sunny day be the last for the innocent people of their middle-of-nowhere town?

Game Of Death took way too long to come come out in America and I can easily see why, this is one of those movies where the idea of the movie is far better than the actual film itself. The only thing I can give this movie is a handful of unintentional laughably bad moments that made me burst out laughing. Everything else is garbage, I can not honestly tell which is worse the acting or the writing. It’s filled to the brim of cliches and really doesn’t do anything good, a lot of the movie is stuff you have seen in better movies. The characters are pretty much stock horror movie characters, if you have seen any given horror movie congratulations you are going to know exactly what these characters are like. Overall I really don’t know what else to say. It’s a waste of potential and just a downright terrible movie.

2/10 F

A panicked young woman, with her reluctant friends in tow, rushes to Mexico to try and delete a ranting email she sent to her new boyfriend.

Desperados is a movie I only watched because I heard how bad it is, heck I haven’t even heard of it until the reviews came out. It’s bad as everyone saying it is, it’s an edgy Netflix original comedy. The movie is filled to the brim of Pedophillia jokes, the rest of the humor completely falls flat. None of it is funny at the slightest there’s this one scene where a dolphin humps the main character and slaps her with it’s genitals or the movie implies it. This movie really just feels like a Netflix comedy that some how turned into an edgy comedy. It really doesn’t make a whole of sense what the mindset was when making this movie. The acting is terrible, the writing is formulaic and just horrendous. There really isn’t much else to say if it weren’t for that Dolphin scene nobody would know this movie existed, which is saying something because a lot of people already don’t know it exists.
