THIS MOVIE SUCKS! WHY DOES EVERYONE LIKE IT? Best, Worst, and Favorites of the year.

That's fascinating. I've always found that, even though I can be highly critical with the movie *stares at Rise Of Skywalker*, the movie can still have me love it and enjoy it for what it is. I think there can be a difference between best and favorite movies. We do, and it helps people who do enjoy attention, but what we do with that attention is what makes people different Any personal favorites? The acting, the writing, the effects, the action, all of it was amazing!!! The whole movie just oozed with brilliance, and inventiveness. I talked with a few friends who were fans of the series about this movie, and they said it was one of the best anime adaptations to happen yet. This movie has stuck with me since March. While Rise Of Skywalker had expectations that were met, Alita had to really grab me, and it’s fair to say, this little angel had my heart. Those were my picks. Anything you agree or disagree with? Let me know! Thanks for reading! FAVORITE: (Not necessarily the best movies of the year, but the ones I will return too) 5. Avengers: Endgame- The climactic conclusion to 11 years worth of movies is in every way amazing. It is long, but it takes its time being a character study of heroes, which is something we hadn’t seen before on this scale from Marvel. The final battle is probably one of the best in movie history, and for one reason. We knew a lot of those characters. As great as “Return Of The King’s” final battle is, the massive amount of soldiers were mainly there to sell the action. In Endgame, we know most of those heroes, and/or what they stand for, so to them taking out that massive army is truly amazing both on a spectacle level, and an emotional level. 4. Lego Movie 2- Beautifully animated, and hilarious at every level of humor. I’ve talked to a few people about this, and I noticed those who didn’t like the movie don’t have siblings, or don’t have that close of a connection to them. Everyone who does that I’ve talked too loved this movie, and it is the perfect movie about siblings IMO. It’s a wonderful movie that should be watched, especially by family. 3. Jojo Rabbit- See above about my thoughts on this movie, but honestly, this movie also spoke to me on a deep emotional level. As a kid, you’re so easily blind sided by the world, and sometimes parents contradict that view point. The movie is about growing up and getting ready to face the world. That’s what makes it so amazing to me, and why I loved it. 2. The Rise Of Skywalker- The ending to my childhood saga is obviously going to be one of my favorites. This has some of the best action, some of the best (and worst) twists, and some of the most inventive fighting I have seen in a movie, but why is it not number one? 1. Alita: Battle Angel- I had never read the manga, or seen the anime. I went into this with no expectations. I walked out in complete shock. I loved every single second of this movie. The acting, the writing, the effects, the act I'm kinda laughing at the fact that out of all my reviews this year, for some reason, this is the one that has brought on the most conversations While that's true, as I stated in my review, I don't go to movies to write essays on the science, I go to be entertained and/or challenged. Why can't we just sell a film on it being a film rather than a "Let me show you the science of.."? Wouldn't that make more sense for an entertainment medium. "Apocalypse Now" didn't get everything right, but people still praise that character study. Why doesn't this get a pass? I really liked how the screenplay was much more a character study in space. Every sci-fi movie makes a big deal on the "What we can do in space!" elements, but hasn't really ever tackled "What can space do to a person." It felt very real, and eerie most of the time, and I think the screenplay was detailed enough to give that it was a character study. I like a lot of your insight sir! If you don't mind, I would like to offer some counterpoints Fall from antenna: I saw it as the set up for our character, and how he remains calm even in the worst situations. This shows us how he has learned to survive without his dad, and why he probably lost his wife. It's a character moment, not really a story moment. Moon War: "Didn't affect anything in the plot, no reason to care." It killed off Sutherland's character, who was the man who was supposed to go find the father after they made contact with him. Killing him gave McBride the reason he had to be the man who finished the mission. Send message from Mars: "Silly, and far fetched science-y idea there. Why not from moon, or earth?" You mean it's far fetched to think when we colonize planets, we won't have technology to send messages to far off galaxies from miles away? Seems more far fetched to not think so. Also being that Mars was closer to the ship, it would make sense to send it on the planet closest to the receiver. Also, sending it from Earth, or the airport-like Moon could be intercepted by other people, like maybe the pirates on the moon, who could sell the information on what's happening to the highest bidder. Just a thought. Baboons: It's all done visually. If you look during McBride's investigation, you see it's an experiment for animals in space, maybe like a zoo. It may not be referenced again, but it puts McBride in a situation where he starts to realize that anything in space can go mad, and kill in rage, much like how his dad was in a similar state. Animatter issue: With you on that one, but that just seems like poor marketing, and i usually don't hold marketing over a movie's head, otherwise I wouldn't like "Unbreakable" What does this affect? Oh nothing? Who cares: Yeah, I felt that a lot during the movie, like good ideas that could have been explored better, even with the voiceover. Thanks for giving some great thoughts to talk about!
