Wonder Woman
 Wonder Woman 6/10

Wonder Woman
It's obviously the best the DC cinematographic project has produced to this day, what's not saying much. It started a bit slow and it's full of cringe-worthy moments of empowerment, but it could be worse. At least it avoids popular tropes attached to women in cinema. That's a bingo. The action scenes picked up in the later half and looked a bit shallow to me, very fantasious. I'd give it a 3 out of 5. It's not a movie I'll want to watch ever again.

John Wick
I watched it all in one sitting, but it's not a good movie. It has violence, but there are too many plot holes. It makes it very unrealistic. Not to say the way he kills everybody. It's just too far away from reality. The story itself is very empty and the ending doesn't pay off because there's no setting up during the movie. It feels like it should have a impact but it really does not. At least I can actually see what he's doing in the action because of the steady camera. Good job, Hollywood! Other than that, I don't think there's much to be saved.

The Incredibles
This is a great movie. It has a slow start I guess, that even made me let to finish it in a second session, but it really pick up the pace in the second part. It has great action scenes, great music the matches its Cold War era style, and even a compelling villain. It all makes sense. Even though it's been some time since the last time I saw it, I've watched it a few times through out the years and that takes a bit of the enjoyment in this movie I guess. Or maybe it was the slow start. I don't know. I'll give it a 4.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
This movie has a lot of convenient plot point happening and it starts a bit slow, as you don't really know what's going on or what one thing have to do with the other until much later in the movie, but it's alright I guess. Also, the 1920s' America setting is always interesting. I've see worse movies this year.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
I say this is a inferior movie to the first one, but not by far. It's much more of a emotional journey, with a lot of of slow-motion scenes. The songs continue great (The Chain is really good), and the visuals are stunning (I guess they're using the new camera), but the plot has some flaws, and the biggest one to me is Gamora flip-flopping on the whole thing. I guess the impact of it is a bit soften too because they don't have to overcome a comparable threat to the first one: trying to unit and become the Guardians. They grow much more on a personal level in the first one. And that's why I think the movie tries way too hard and falls a bit short: it keeps trying to make great moments without a central conflict and need for growth as strong as the first. When it comes to Blueray I'll watch it again, but for now I think it's a 9, while the first one was an 10, but I'll give it an 8 to diferentiate.

Aladdin
This movie didn't feel weird to me in english because I didn't watch it enough when I was a kid, I didn't grow accustomed to the portuguese version. I had a cassette tape and a book of Aladdin, but never had the VHS tape. I also played the SNES game of the same name, but it wasn't in portuguese. Beyond the language part, the movie itself is good. It's not one of my favourites maybe because of the characters. I don't really like Jasmin, to me just an self entitled and self absorved princess with no redeeming qualities. Aladdin is brave and smart, but not one of my favourites characters either. Abu is annoying, Raja is boring, Iago is awful. Jafar is a bit terrifying but very shallow. Genie is great and funny and the Sultan is adorable, but that's about it. The story itself is good, but not great. The barriers Aladdin has to overcome are poorly constructed. I guess that's the problem with having a Genie in it: there are so many better wishes he could have made. But I guess it plays nicely in showing how clueless he is about everything. It doesn't deserve a five and barely gets a four, so I'll give it a three. I think is fitting.

The Babadook
The first time I watched this movie it was a terrifying experience, and I really liked this one because of that. But in this second run it was not nearly as frightening. Instead I tried to make sense of it all and discovered the hidden meaning of it, of how the monster is in reality her pain in losing her husband. Because of that this movie now has a whole new spin to me.

The Truman Show
I don't why it took me so long to watch this movie and this is the second time already that I watch it, but it's one of my favourite Jim Carrey movies. It's a weird concept and the people involved in it are very creepy, especially his wife, but it's very touching when he finally frees himself.

Tarzan
Another one of those childhood Disney movies. This one I had on VHS too. I like the songs (in portuguese) and the message of love between mother and son. Most characters sound the same in english, except Jane for some reason. I like her portuguese voice better. Next, I'll try italian. It's not one of my favourites Disney movies, but it's great nonetheless.

Kong: Skull Island
I didn't like it. I mean, Kong walks as a normal-ass person? It's very weird. And the pacing of the movie feels wrong. It gets dull halfway through. The soundtrack in the begining is great, but there's no good action scenes. And the final battle is boring, predictable and feels like a rehash of the 2005 King Kong movie. Discount badass jungle Loki, and the whole talking without talking tribe bullshit, and the fact the Kong cares enough about a random girl to save her, and the fact that she sinks like a stone to begin with, and the fact that she's not dead when grabbed by a giant fighting monkey hand that gets SWALLOWED... I mean, come on... This is a step back from the previous King Kong movie without a doubt which at least had some great actions scenes, a plot that made sense and a monkey that behaved like a monkey.
