‘Eternals’ Now Has the Worst Rotten Tomatoes Score of any MCU Movie: Uh-oh

I’ve never been one to fully rely on critics to help me decide whether to watch a film or not but I do pay attention to the score. For example, Joker, among critics has a 68% Rotten Tomatoes score and yet I’ve watched the film FIVE times. Suffice it to say, I really like the movie and was surprised to see it lower than at least 85%. There are other films whose scores may be low but I enjoy regardless; Transformers: Age of Extinction (17%), Rush Hour 2 (57%), Jungle Cruise (62%) or even Interstellar whose 72% score seems preposterous to me.

So a dismal Rotten Tomatoes score won’t exactly deter me from watching a film I’m interested in but I do see it. The fact that this movie is now the lowest-rated MCU film, even under Thor: The Dark World seems baffling to me. If this movie is so bad why did the critics just outright tell us so. Why are they beating around the bush?

I get the overall negative view of the film. It’s all over the place, the plot is messy, and it’s a bit too much like a DC movie. But aren’t the characters and the eventual showdowns enough to balance the “dense” narrative?

I don’t know what’s with this new movie but I hope I personally enjoy it more than Captain Marvel.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Well, I Watched ‘The Blair Witch Project’

As I have told you all many times before, I’m not a horror fan. But for the past couple of years every October I make sure to watch Halloween and a new scary movie of my choice. This year it was The Blair Witch Project.

I’ve heard about this movie. It’s the best documentary-style horror classic and it kind of was brilliantly made for its time. What I am relieved to say is that the film was terrifying but not to terrifying.

This is one of those films that builds the horror thanks to simply imagination. Every time I thought the story was going to go one way it veered on another path and then, at its most terrifying, it ended. I was both thankful that the film didn’t leave me scarred or unable to go to sleep with the lights off and I was appreciative of the film’s decision to end the way it did. It felt more realistic and honestly, the film did its job. It scared me and that’s what horror movies are supposed to do.

I’ll give it 89 out of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. Happy Halloween weekend.
