Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)



It still could have saved itself at the box office more or less with the same plot, just needed more bankable starts like Chris Pratt & Scarlett Johansson but more importantly couple of rewrites & slightly different & more edgy treatment required. Moreover, they could have save at least 20 odd minutes by removing that pointless & time wasting 'kidnap & rescue' segment where a giant-fat alien tribe kidnapped the heroin Sgt. Laureline (Cara Delevingne).

Overall, not bad, had the potential to become a decent series but sad, they blew it away.

Mayhem (2017)



It's similar to THE BELKO EXPERIMENT only in terms of both the films got the premise of an office building complex where chaos & violence breakthroughs but here a virus plays the part that makes stress hormone levels rise & stimulates extreme emotions without the realization of difference between right & wrong. And surely it worked at least as a better idea than somehow putting explosive chips in the skulls of co-workers who were ordered to kill each other by a mystery voice (Belko Experiment).
Moreover MAYHEM utilized the corporate affairs & its environment with a way more convincing & better approach. Overall, a better executed, more entertaining & bloodier film than TBE.

Glad to see Samara Weaving from Netflix's THE BABYSITTER back in here with another kick-ass role, looks like she's the breakthrough star of the genre this year.

>>: B+

Justice League (2017)



JUSTICE LEAGUE isn't a perfect superhero movie. A poorly done, one dimensional villain, rush in the story line, almost zero emphasis on how's the world dealing with the events...there are issues to get critical about it. But does that really means it's another entertaining mess of a DC film?! I definitely wouldn't call it a total mess but yeah..still found it quite entertaining!! It's basically a superhero movie mostly about the superheros, from character introductions to all the fun & actions, JL was a triumph of DC's supreme superheros. The entertainment level was so high that all those critical issues didn't actually bothered me much; the heroes steals the show entirely, the villain & the crisis felt like minor issues or an excuse to bringing them all together. All the actors shines in their respective roles; Miller surprised me as Barry Allen, Jason Momoa was badass as Aquaman, even Ray Fisher as Cyborg was pretty adequately fits into the group. WW & Batsy have little grown with their characters and man...Sup returned as the best of them, one of the versions of Superman that we've been waiting for. If you are familiar with the style & execution of Snyder & Whedon's filmmaking then I'm sure you'll see the difference here, the style of 2 different directors were somewhat quite visible throughout the movie but in a good way. In Justice League, we have somewhat got the best of both of them. I'm glad whedon stepped in & saved the movie from being another Snyder's signature entertaining mess. His light & full of life & fun touches were noticeable and made this such an enjoyable ride from start to finish despite having several issues.

DCEU still alive and I'm looking forward to see further installments.

Basically it deserves hardly a 'B-' or 'B' may be but my inner fanboy like to give it a B+.

Stickman and Neverknock, 2017 both made for SyFy movies. These are not rate-able and not very good but fun to watch.
