2018 Summer Blockbuster Movie Pool

Recommended Posts

Pretty surprised about Oceans's eight. I saw a preview for it as I watched Game night last night(loved that movie), and it looks like a piece of shit. Sandra bullock does NOT have the gravitas to pull off the lead role, and the rest looks like a bunch of blah.

Main thing I'm hearing is that Hatheway hit a homerun. If she doesnt movie might fall 20 or so points.

Maybe I'm weird, but man, Jurassic Park movies are just always reviewed better then they really are. Heck, even Lost World and 3 did okayish with critics. I just find it surprising people thought this was gonna be a super negative even when the meh Jurassic World pulled a 71 on RT.

I feel that way with Star Wars. Somehow Attack of the Clones and Solo did perfectly fine even though they have plenty of issues and the weirdest one is The Last Jedi at like 90% even though it's clear many people didn't like it. There was clear backlash to it

For the six people who were planning to see this shit and haven't already, you might want to get on that fast before it gets yanked.

I saw it on Monday. Thanks MoviePass. It was painful.

Anne Hathaway was the best thing about The Dark Knight Rises as well.

Only worthwhile thing about Superman III is rogue Superman fighting it out with good Clark Kent in the junkyard battle. Christopher Reeve will always be Supes to me.

Ocean's 8 opened with $41.5 million which is a franchise record

Take that for whatever it is

Not so much a franchise like Bond or Star Wars as much as it is, "Oh, the last one made money so let's make another one.."

To the surprise of no one - Incredibles 2 has started at 96% (51 reviews in)

The 2 negative reviews:

From Screen Rant -  no longer fresh because of how many superhero movies there are now and it might be too long for kids

The other is from Variety's Owen Gleiberman (who really seems to have turned into a joyless fuck). It basically is "No movie can be good as the first one so here is a rotten score"

In their defense, smartphones have give everyone squirrel brains so it's probably also too long for adults.

When Christopher Robin gets a 100% Freshness Rating and fucks up my RT list because these douchebags can't bring themselves to give Incredibles 2 the decent reviews it probably deserves. I am going to scream with rage.

Well since I posted - it has dipped to 61%

But now you know how I feel about Jurassic World (which at least has gone down to 60%)
