My Movie Review: The Circle

This movie is simply about a big company that started a growing social networking site. This movie tackles the issues and the effects of using social networking sites as our tools as basis for our credibility and transparency.
What you might not like about this movie is that, it's all talk and discussions. Like me, I would sometimes look for some action scenes. Ok, there is that one scene that her best friend is being chased by circlers (they are the members of the social networking site.) and her best friend dies in the crash.
Yeah, it might be a good movie but simehow feels extreme.
Not really a great movie. Something just like "black mirror" without the final outcome.

My Movie Review: Slient Voice

This anime movie is one of the anime movues I recommend watching.
The story is about a male student trying to make amends to all his classmates he bullied. He remembers that he was also bullied before, and now, he's doing it to others.
The eight missing hearing aid was reported to the school principal and the male student was reprimanded. All of his so-called friends blamed everything on him. Ever since, he felt he doesn't need to connect to abybody anymore.

My Movie review: Redivider

If you are going to watch this, be ready to get confused.
If you watched the trailer, it would seem that the movie was about alien invasion to planet Earth, or close to that.
But no.
It is actually about using a new technology to create energy for the entire planet. This is by creating an "echo Earth". This means that they create a twin earth and get all its natural resources and when it's done, the echo Earth will need to be destroyed. The plot here is that the twin planet also has the clone of the people from the original planet. Then, the twin planet is pulling everything from the original planet. (That's why you will see the planes and trains falling from the sky).
I am also confused about the graphics, (brain computer interface). Why does the main character have that?
So, there is no alien invasion. There is no higher being coming. Just more confusing details.

My Movie Review: Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale

The movie seems to be a continuation of Season 1 and 2 of Sword Art Online. It tells about the beauty of playing AR game compared to a Full-Diving VR game. But there was a hidden plan to extract memories of every SAO survivor to become part of Yuna's AI.

Plot and Twist: 4/5
Impact on Audience:  3.5/5
Effects and Stunts: 3/5

Split (2017)

We already know how scary a person can be that have multiple personalities, and that means we can predict what might happen in the ending.  But in this film, I did not expect to see a scarier personality that can be developed in a man. In the movie, it is described as "...taller, bigger...". They should have used special effects on james' character to support the description. They should have kept it unclear how scary this new personality in jason's character that evolved and "came in the light."
I don't understand how the story ended. I just see bruce willis in the end drinking coffee. Please let me know what that means.

Plot and Twist: 3/5
Impact on Audience: 3/5
Effects and Stunts: 1/5

Final: 50%
Note: There is so much that can be improved in the movie to make it a more interesting film.

XXX: The Return of Xander Cage

At the beginning of the movie, I already felt the regret and disappointment while watching. The movie is a flop because the plot and the twist is so-so. But I liked that they put all back the characters of the movie's part 1 and part 2. It felt like you are watching the expendables.

Plot and Twist: 0.5/5
Impact on Audience: 2/5
Effects and Stunts: 3/5

Final: 40%
Note: You don't see much how beautiful caramoan islands is in the movie.

My Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

Many reviews have already come out for this movie and these reviews are saying that it is really a great movie.  I will agree to that based on these factors:
 1. The movie feels like you're still watching a harry potter kind of movie but it's about a different person who loves to take care of wonderous creatures and keep them inside his magical suitcase. If I am correct to say,Dumbledore also like him as one of the students in Hogwarts, just like Harry Potter.
2. The movie feels like you're watching Ghostbusters because the main character has to catch all his creatures that got out of his suitcase.

By the way, you'll be shocked that Johnny Depp is also in the movie. I think he's not that kind of actor for this kind of movie.
