Ratchet And Clank (2016)
Oh, my word, how do you botch up an adaptation this BADLY? Considering the original game it's based on had such great aesthetics, character development, world-building, comedic timing and social commentary on consumerism, HOW do you fail to use that as the basis for a decent film?
Instead, what we got was a severely neutered film that robs EVERY character of their personality, strips them of their character development/dynamics and throws them into a creatively-sterile Star Wars wannabe, throws in several unresolved plot points and pointless new characters and hurls the consumerist satire out of the window in favour of meme jokes and painfully unfunny pop culture references. Sure, the animation and voice acting was darn solid, but I'm beyond just SEEING a movie, I want it to have a lasting impression above all else.
Given how this movie outright disrespected its source material and bombed at the box office, it just has me severely worried about how the proposed Sly Cooper movie will turn out.
Despite what critics say, and with good points, I still enjoyed this movie. The plot is a singing competition happens but due to a typing error, it says more money is given then what really is there. The singing goes on, then the theater falls apart and Buster Moon, the owner has to live without it. Then, an idea is given when the characters would build a stage for their singing competition. Everyone wins. Though it was a cliche for everyone winning, it was executed well. The story is fun and basically, events happen in the characters lives that affect the theater and story which is a nice idea.
I like the characters a lot in this movie. I like how they categorize for different types of kids, it's kind of smart. I don't mind this as it is used for a good movie. I also like seeing the characters interact with each other, as it can reveal more personality and it's just nice to see. The animation isn't terrible. Though their designs are nice, the animals' face features would seem off at times. A thing about this movie is that... why animals? Like, it doesn't affect the story as seen in a good way, but same can be seen in a not good way. It seems like they struggled with designing humans, and animals do create some nice visual gags. But they don't affect the story.
It does seem pandering with the amount of songs, but they are a nice feature too EXCEPT FOR THOSE STUPID TWERKING BUNNIES. Overall, it's a good movie with some flaws. I recommend it for you to check out.
The concept is brilliant, it's based on a very regular childhood fear, thus the viewer is more likely to be deeply affected, and scared. The actors are fantastic, the characters are likeable, and the character development is also great. The effects are well-made, and the jumpscares are good.
The antagonist's background story had a lot of potential, but unfortunately they didn't elaborated it as much as I wanted, therefore I don't give ten out of ten.
The Spongebob Movie: Sponge out of Water 9/10
This movie was good like the first one and it even had better animation. I really liked it.
But the only thing I didn't like was the advertising. The advertising was false as the commercials mostly just showed the 3D parts as the 3D parts didn't happen until the last 40/30 minutes of the movie. I completely understand why the advertisers did this. But the name and trailers were just so misleading. (That is not a good marketing strategy)I recommend seeing it if you haven't.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off | 9/10
A tasteful movie with slapstick and intelligent comedy, John Hughes mixed fourth wall breaks and crazy antics perfectly.
The goofy main character, played by Matthew Broderick, hit the nail on the head. He new the boundaries of his comedy and sassiness, yet broke them simultaneously.
The supporting characters were amazing as well, giving the movie a good diverse aesthetic.
Not to be rivaled by any other teen flick, Ferris Bueller's Day Off was a relaxing distraction from reality.
