Welcome to Rinzy Reviews Films

It’s been a few years since I became engrossed in the art of film-watching, and a little more for story-writing. It’s also approximately a year since I nursed the idea ofΒ  having a platform where I pen my many film (movies and TV) theories and discuss film ideas with a public as enthusiastic about the art as myself. So, here we are – Rinzy Reviews Films: A dream made reality.

Though not the best attempt, I strongly believe it’s a step in the ‘write’ direction. I believe, greatly, in planting a vision and nursing it into a mission. And, I know we’ll have great times here making memories we’ll treasure for many years to come.

My name is Rinzy Talius Dike, your chief-servant and I sayΒ Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

Rinzy Reviews ‘Skyscraper’ (2018)

Release date: July 13, 2018

Budget/ Box Office: $129M/ $281.4M

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Roland Moller, Pablo Schreiber, etc.

Rinzy’s Rating: 3/5

***

‘Skyscrapper’ is another entry into a long line of action movies led by current number-one Hollywood action star, Dwayne Johnson.

The movie plot revolved around Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson), a war veteran setup by his former colleague to take the fall for setting the world’s tallest building, where he just got employed, on fire. Will must save his family and try to clear his name before the escalating fire and its true masterminds get to them.

The action scenes didn’t take long to start and, even though they were many, didn’t change the fact that this wasn’t an awesome movie. Like its unrealistic plot, the movie is filled with cheap thrills that’ll easily appeal to fans of mindless action flicks. Not to say the movie is terrible; no, it isn’t; it’s totally watchable, just that it’s another entry in a long list of movies that asks the question can Dwayne Johnson really act? That’s if he ever could . πŸ˜‚

Not to suck all the joy from this movie, I did enjoy one particular sequence in the final act… The one in the room filled with mirrors. I thought it was beautiful, but then I also thought the way Sawyer defeated the villain was silly, so… 😌.

The truth is, you’ll find more regular movie goers appreciating ‘Skyscraper’, so I guess it really is another win for Dwayne Johnson. I wonder how long his luck will continue to shine this way?

If you’ve seen the movie, kindly share your thoughts on it.

Kemi Adetiba (@kemiadetiba) is everything the Nigerian movie industry needs now. She’s a rare gem, one in million, and I love her for giving the industry the uplift it’s in dire need of. I have no doubt this movie will be a hit.

Big mummy Sola Sobowale (@solasobowale) πŸ™Œ, I see your good works. I’m sure I’ll like this character, too, just as I did Tinu. God bless you plenty plenty.

Susu (@adesuaetomi), another hit is loading and I’m ready for it.

Reminisce alaga (@iamreminisce), something tells me you’ll nail this role, maybe because you’re in Kemi’s (@kemiadetiba) safe hands.

Mark your calendars for October is the month to rejoice with ‘King of Boys’.

Rinzy Reviews ‘Deadpool 2’ (2018)

Release Date: May 18, 2018

Budget/ Box-Office: $100M/ $733.1M

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, etc.

Rinzy’s Rating: 4/5

***

Breaking the fourth wall and an R-rating, which allowed the use of strong languages, endeared the first Deadpool movie to the hearts of fans around the world. Expectations were high for this sequel, and boy did it deliver! 

Shocker alert! Vanessa (Baccarin) dies early into the movie. At first, I thought it was a joke of some sort, an elaborate prank on viewers. I mean, how does Vanessa die almost as soon as the movie starts, especially after being an integral part of the first movie? Well, that’s what we get… A dead Vanessa. But that doesn’t mean talented actress Morena Baccarin sits out the entire movie, she’s just not as important as would’ve been expected. I’d have loved to see more of her pretty face and a possible repeat of the marathon sex scenes with Wade; good thing she was saved at the end of the movie with Cable’s time-travelling device. 

Morena Baccarin as Vanessa

A dead Vanessa translates to an angry Deadpool a.k.a. Wade Wilson (see what I did there? πŸ˜‚). He tries everything from revenge murder spree to revenge suicide to cope with his loss, but nothing worked. The perks of being an immortal. He finds new purpose joining the X-Men, but it’s short-lived and he ends up in prison, where all the real fun begins.

I liked the fact that we were introduced to a new side of Deadpool (Reynolds), one that manages to humanize a character that’s easily seen as a caricature, and still maintain all the silliness that made the first movie beautiful. 

Josh Brolin as Cable

At best, I could describe the character Cable (Brolin) as decent. Don’t get me wrong, he had a great backstory… Wife and child died at the hands of a mutant madman. So, he goes back in time to enact revenge before the madman is truly formed. Works well on paper, but wasn’t convincingly executed, if you ask me. The way his scenes were layered to add suspense just didn’t work for me… It got me a bit confused in places I shouldn’t have been. I did like every action scene he appeared in though, especially that one on the highway where Juggernaut (Reynolds) was released. 

Juggernaut vs. Deadpool

Talking about Juggernaut. This is obviously the better of his two live-action appearances (remember X-Men: Last Stand). Even though the character is portrayed as a mindlessly loyal mutant in this movie, his lines are less cheesy and he makes up for his lapses by smashing things way better than his predecessor ever could. His BIG CGI fight with Colossus is one to be remembered for a while.

A movie’s only as good as the villain he/she has to face, but does ‘Deadpool 2’ pass on this department? There isn’t a straight answer to this question as there isn’t an actual big bad for Deadpool to battle and surmount, like in the first movie. Instead, he’s faced with the opportunity to rewrite destiny, convince a possible-villain to do good, and in so doing shows we (humans) are products of our choices… The future isn’t set in stone, as most say. Does this move work? Yes, it does.

I loved Domino (Beetz)!!! Who would’ve thought a character with luck as a superpower could be so cool? We’ve got Zazie Beetz to thank for this gift we hope will continue giving in this universe.

I enjoyed all the DC and Marvel references, and those fourth wall breaking scenes, especially those in the post credit scenes… Deadpool’s really silly, I can’t seem to get enough. πŸ˜‚.

Have you seen ‘Deadpool 2’ yet? Did you like it? What’s your best moment in the film?

PS: To whom it may concern, a third Deadpool movie is in the works and might just be produced by Disney this time.
 

Thoughts And Questions I Had After Watching ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Some SPOILER filled thoughts and questions I’ve had since I first saw ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. If you still haven’t seen the biggest movie of the year, even with the release of its digital version, you’ve got yourself to blame. Sorry. πŸ€—.

I never thought Heimdal would be the first to die. I didn’t even think Loki would die in the first act. Oh well, someone’s got to die first for others to follow.

I wonder if Pepper was among Thanos’ snap casualty? If so, it means there’s no more wedding, which means we’re left with a madder Tony. Which brings us to:

What if by the time we return to the MCU everyone who didn’t fade away from existence starts to forget those who did? That’ll be very very very scary.

I can only imagine what was in Wanda’s mind before Team Cap’s arrival, when she defended Vision, without much success, from Proxima Midnight and Corvius Glave.

That moment Gamora stabbed Thanos in the gut was a shocker. I was like… ‘Is that it? Is this the villain we deserve after all these years of build up?’ Thankfully, it was just the power of the reality stone at work. 😁.

Imagine you were Gamora. After all these years, would you have warmed up to Thanos or still resent him for killing your people?

Is it just me or is Star Lord and Gamora’s love not-so-believable?

Star Lord is quite silly; after foiling his teammates’ plan to defeat Thanks he still asked if they lost. What a drunk fellow!

What kind of destiny causes one to kill his own daughter? 😒

Tony and Strange’s subtle animosity is funny.

The Avengers vs. The Guardians brief scuffle on Titan was a very funny one. The easily silly line ‘Why is Gamora?’ rendered by Drax lends credence to the fact that he might just be the silliest character in all of the MCU. 

Do you think Drax can ever be sensible? πŸ˜‚

Do you think Loki is truly dead?

Who do you think is the man – Thor or Star Lord? 
Are you a fan of Vision and Wanda’s romance?

Where was Thor all the while Thanos decimated the rest of the Avengers on Wakanda? He just had to wait for another triumphant entrance.

Do you remember the names of the children of Thanos and the order with which they died?

The battle at Wakanda should be termed ‘The World’s Most Orgasmic Battle’ and the chant Yibambe ‘The Most Orgasmic Chant’. 😝.

It isn’t coincidence all the founding members of The Avengers survived Thanos’ onslaught.

Rinzy Reviews ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’

Release Date: June 22, 2018.

Budget/ Box Office: $170M/ $1.246B

Starring: Chris’s Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, B.D. Wong, Isabella Sermon, etc.

Rinzy Ratings: 4/5

***

I think it’s safe to assume everyone is intrigued by the beauty of the dinosaurs, the gigantic beasts that roamed the earth long before we arrived. That, I believe, has been the selling point of the Jurassic Park movies. And having worked for as long as it has, it’s time the powers that be look for something other than mind boggling amazement to act as the franchise selling point. That being said, I believe Fallen Kingdom is an entertaining sequel.

Owen Grady (Pratt) and Clarie Dearing (Howard) set out on a mission, by Eli Mills (Spall), to save the dinosaurs from the soon-to-be destroyed island, which they soon discover to be a ruse, as Eli only needed them to get Blue to him to further his black market agenda.

If you thought the T-Rex was terrifying, wait till you meet the Indoraptor. Eli’s latest toy created by foremost devilish scientist in the Jurassic universe, Dr. Henry Wu (Wong). I don’t know about you, but I think it’s high time this scientist bites the dust. He’s caused too much damaged already. 

It’d be unfair of me to not talk about the breakout star of this movie. Give it up for Maisie Lockwood (Sermon). The smart girl was a part of what made the movie so enjoyable, especially in the final act.

As I said earlier, Fallen Kingdom is an action-packed, intense, funny, captivating movie from start to finish. The powers that be found a way to rejuvenate a cliche idea and ignite hope for the conclusion of a seemingly senile franchise. Meaning that, at the end of Fallen Kingdom, we’re naturally left wanting more, which, if you ask me, is a win for any movie.

Rinzy Reviews ‘Antman And The Wasp’ (2018)

Release Date: July 6, 2018.

Budget/ Box Office: 

Starring: Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Lawrence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, etc.

Rinzy’s Rating: 4/5

***

Fun and light-hearted, Antman and the Wasp is the perfect follow up to Avengers: Infinity War and all the heartbreak Thanos brought along with his children.

Following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang (Rudd) had been placed under house arrest for two years. With just three days to the end of his sentence, what could go wrong?

I’m just going to state how pissed I am that Scott and Hope (Lily) we’re written to end up as a romantic couple. Can’t we have a movie where the lead male and female doesn’t have to catch feelings for each other? The sterotype is sickening. The signs have been there since the first Antman movie, but I’ll still prefer them to not be romantically involved.

Every hero is only as good as the villain he/she has to battle and surmount. But what happens when you’ve got two headlining heroes? You’ll need a villain twice as capable. Does Antman and the Wasp deliver on this? No, it doesn’t. Though the ability and backstory of Ava/Ghost (John-Kamen) is impressive, the writing of the character is lacklustre and easily forgettable. Nothing else asides her costume is memorable. 

On a plus side, the humour of this movie was decent. I wasn’t rolling over the floor, laughing my ass out, but I had a smirk on my face for the better of it; like when the regulator on Scott’s new suit caused him to alternate between weird body sizes; the multiple scenes where the mobile lab was being chased all over town; and the scene were Scott’s mind was taken over by Janet were among those that stood out for me.

The action scenes, too, were good.

For Marvel’s first female title character, Evangeline Lily’s The Wasp is pretty good. Fierce and intimidating as she was in the first Antman movie, she ones again proves she’s capable of being the boss of her own self, and does it wonderfully well having to team up with Scott Lang. Her action scenes were easily the bestin the movie, especially those against Ghost. I sincerely hope she somehow gets featured in next year’s Avengers 4. 

Before I round up, I mustn’t fail to talk about Michael Douglas (Hank Pym) and Michelle Pfeiffer (Janet Van Dyne), and how hot they both are in their advanced ages. I think of just how much sex appeal they had in their earlier years… Basic Instincts and Batman Returns easily come to mind. I know we’ll see more of them in the MCU. Marvel didn’t spend two movies introducing us to the quantum realm just to let it take a back seat when we need it the most. Since time works differently in that realm, as said by Janet Van Dyne, I believe it’s the answer to undoing the great damage Thanos caused with the snap of his finger.
