People really asking who Katy Perry is, which makes me wonder if people have been living under a rock or if they're just really young.
If it's the latter, they shouldn't even be on Twitter. Then again so should people over 13.

Name sounds faintly familiar but I don't really bother that much with names so I doubt I would remember anytime soon.

Their memory banks might not actually be explosive and powerful like fireworks.

Or perhaps they're not a california gurl who's undeniable.

Maybe the news of it isn't coming at them like a dark horse yet.

But maybe, above all else, this pop star is simply the one who got away.

This certainly has become a meme lately:


Anyways, I finally decided to give Wonder Woman 1984 a watch as it came out on PVod here in the United Kingdom today and here are my reviews along with Shazam! and Aquaman (both films which I had also decided to give a watch):

After the success of their first movie which gained critical acclaim (despite a weak third act), can Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot repeat the same recipe with their sequel? Sadly, I'm afraid not.

Although the first seventeen minutes of the film is alright (despite some of the cheesy scenes within the fight scene within the mall), it somewhat went downhill from there. There are several questions that I do have in regards the story was written within Wonder Woman 1984 which was done by Patty Jenkins and Geoff Johns. I couldn't help but feel the idea of a wishing stone is ridiculous and I'm not really sure whether Steve Trevor's soul taking over a man's body is the best way for him to come back and I do believe that there are better ways for him to return (not over a man's body.)

I felt that the film which not only lacked humor, but it was going at quite a slow pace which it took almost a long time for it to materialise. For example, it took over an hour later from the mall scene that I finally get to see the next action sequence to come in and I would've liked to have seen more within that time.

The third act was pretty underwhelming to say the least which Cheetah had little screen time and the idea of Maxwell Lord renouncing his wish fell rather flat.

Pedro Pascal who is well known for the Mandalorian is the only actor whose performance shone throughout the film whilst Gal Gadot who was pretty much one of the best performers in the last film, wasn't able to bring her best in 1984.

Overall, I'm actually quite disappointed with the sequel as whilst there are certainly many questionable flaws within the film such as the story, it couldn't quite continue on from the success it had achieved within its first film which is a real shame.

Rating: 5.5/10

After watching Shazam! I would put this as my second favourite DCEU film overall. Whilst again, I felt it took a quite a while for things to materialise and I felt that the villain was underwhelming, there are several positive things about Shazam! with Zachery Levi being the film's best performer. I just wish that the other family members will get another opportunity to shine more in the confirmed sequel.

The film is fun and it certainly does give the true meaning of "familiy" which is pretty much its primary focus.

Rating: 8/10

To reiterate what Pedro Pascal's character had said in Wonder Woman 1984, "the film is good, but it can be better."

Whilst I certainly do not have any qualms on Jason Momoa's performance, I felt that the film did not bring the best out of its cast in which I felt that the likes of Nicole Kidman, Williem Defoe and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's characters were pretty much wasted. Amber Heard wasn't really able to bring out much personality within Mera and Patrick Wilson who portrays Orm Marius aka Ocean Master (which if Rocket Raccoon hears that he will literally get mocked completely) did not deliver at all with his stiff and wooden performance.

Even though its visual effects are stunning, a number of its dialogue was not very well executed within parts of the film and the plot kind of felt like they were attempting to mash stories from Thor, Black Panther and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

I know the catch all for my generation is gen z, but I really feel like there are two different gen z’s.
People who don't know Katy Perry wouldn't even be Gen Z. They'd be Gen Alpha.

Birds of Prey is one of the two films that I was able to watch last year before the cinemas were closed (Onward was the other film.) Here is my review:

Anyways, I felt that the film is colourful, vibrant and fun in areas and Margot Robbie did a good job in her portrayal as Harley (one of the characters that stood out during David Ayers' version of the Suicide Squad.) But I don't know if it is me, but some of the characters are quite forgettable and I just wish they had a bit more shine within the film.

Overall Rating: 7/10

some people definitely could've shined more (more Huntress screentime would've been awesome since she was a top highlight), but it did hold the fort for the DCEU last year at the least

also Birds of Prey was one of my last cinema films as well...tho instead of Onward I watched Sonic...ah the memories

Objectively, Birds of Prey was kind of an average movie.

Subjectively? I loved the **** out of it. The characters were likable, the action was fun and it knew when to get serious and whento not most of the time. It saved Harley Quinn as a character for meafter the mess that was Suicide Squad. Easily one of my my personal favorite DCEU movie after Shazam and Wonder Woman.

Also, Secret Six movie when?

You wanted anime to be real

Now you must accept
