#TheBottomLine Tomb Raider

I had high expectations from the trailer and all the featurettes, I appreciate Alicia Vikander and the effort she gave to the role and the whole thing looked very professional from the start but the end result is rather bland.

What looked like basing on the new iteration of the franchise ended up as just token mentions, the original story was left by the wayside, and the new one isn't much to talk about as it is quite a rehash of what we've already seen.

TLDR: Nice (High production values but not a lot of soul).

זה משהו שעוד לא הצלחתי לקבל עליו תשובה הגיונית: אם יש כבר גליל נייר פתוח בשירותים, למה לפתוח אחד חדש?

#TheBottomLine Looking Glass

I can see the start of the interesting idea that sparked this script (Hidden two-way mirror, guy watches people, saw something he shouldn't have) but somewhere along the lines, something went horribly wrong.

It really looks like the actors are trying their best with what they have but they don't have much as the script is pretty anemic, although it could have gone an interesting way with a bit more work on the buildup.

TLDR: Meh (Maybe would have been something with a better executive crew)

#TheBottomLine The Death of Superman

Yes, this is another animated DCU movie and it's the Doomsday one so I didn't really expect much except a steady power progression of "I hit harder than you" and that's most of what you get.

There is some humour in there, some semblance of cool ADCU combat sequences, and some actual thoughts about what it means to be a superhero but, overall, I don't like the Doomsday plot.

TLDR: Nice (Still like the package but the content is meh).

#TheBottomLine Shock and Awe

Following a string of similar movies (meaning it's late to the Spotlight party), this one is also based on a true story and feels quite dramatised to boot and, frankly, also light and disjointed.

The material itself is interesting but it feels insufficiently deep, light-handed and, even with the truly unnecessary black-kid-enlists-after-9/11 wrapper story, it seems like it's over way too quickly and quite forgettable to boot.

TLDR: Nice (Good basis but meh execution).

#TheBottomLine Operation Red Sea

While obviously Chinese Government and Chinese Navy oriented, and, obviously, this movie is almost entirely in Chinese, this is still a pretty great action movie.

It's complicated but not too hard to follow, it's long but dense, it feels like its two hours and twenty minutes running time go by quickly and it's still very professional, very high production value, and very cool.

TLDR: Great (If you can sit down for a very Chinese 140 minutes).

#TheBottomLine Ant-Man and the Wasp

I always have a problem with Ant-Man because it forces me to turn off my brain to enjoy the movie and this one does as well, but I can definitely suppress it enough to focus.

And while my scientific brain part was complaining about all the nonsense, I still loved the action, the guest appearances, the comedy and all of it works as a kind of the wacky uncle of the MCU that you probably enjoy spending time with in family events but don't want to think about when the event ends.

TLDR: Good (Stupid, but good).
