Movie Review: Tau

Tau_poster.jpg“Tau follows a once street-smart grifter, Julia (Monroe) who is the latest victim kidnapped and held captive in a fatal experiment. The only thing standing in the way of her freedom is Tau, an advanced artificial intelligence developed by Alex (Skrein), her captor. Tau is armed with a battalion of drones that automate a futuristic smart house. Tau’s potential is only limited by his understanding of the world he exists in, but Tau is ready for more. Julia, showing resourcefulness and courage, must race against time to bridge the boundaries between man and machine, connect to Tau and win her freedom before she suffers the same fate as the previous subjects.”1

While the previews of this Netflix movie looked pretty good, it wasn’t realistic especially the ending. My hubby’s in IT so any movie with computers has got to be spot on and even I knew some of what they proposed was highly improbable ***Spoiler Alert*** that an entire AI can be on a small device. Also how hard did she hit the bad guy to be able to cut off his hand without him waking up???

I did like the movie and really liked the premise of a street-wise girl outsmarting a villain and an AI but the movie fell short for me.

My rating 2.0 stars out of 5

Movie Review: The Incredibles 2

Movie Review: The Incredibles 2

The_Incredibles_2.jpg

All the favorite (main) characters from The Incredibles are back in this sequel movie. However, Mr. Incredible doesn’t have the spotlight, his wife Mrs. Incredible does—well, and cute, little Jack-Jack too.

I loved a lot of this movie despite knowing who the villain was from the first meeting.

However, I did love the twist of the woman saving the day and the hubby at home with the kids.

Only other thing that bugged me was the ending of

***Spoiler Alert****

getting the hypnotic masks off Mrs. Incredible (aka Elastigirl) was too simple and easy.

I did love the reality of Violet and her crush. Overall, a good movie.

 

My rating 4.5 stars out of 5

Movie Review: The Titan

Movie Review: The Titan

The Titan poster.pngIn 2048, Earth is overpopulated and subject to many wars, disease, etc. A scientist offers a select group of military personnel the opportunity to alter their DNA and live on one of Saturn’s moons (that is most compatible with Earth).

Rick Janssen (played by Sam Worthington) is one of the few. His body goes through changes but what will he become, exactly?

The first half of this movie was pretty good. However, once Rick’s wife, Abigail (a Doctor) discovers what the head of the operation is actually doing to the test subjects, the plot becomes muddled with holes.

***Warning, spoilers ahead ****

Here are just a few things that don’t make sense:

  • When Abigail confronts the lead professor saying, “there’s something alive inside him.” Nothing else is done/shown about this. It’s just left hanging there.
  • After the complete transformation of Rick and one other college, why in the hell does the program send them home even if they’re “going to be shipped out in two days.” ESPECIALLY when some of the others have had violent episodes? Why not keep them at the facility and just allow visitation until 24hours before liftoff.
  • The lead professor gives Abigail a vile of liquid to shoot Rick with that will “erase his memories and ties to Earth.” Then how is he going to help humans and Earth on Saturn’s moon if he doesn’t remember anything?
    • Also, how is he, one being, going to be able to do anything to help Earth’s overpopulation and changing humans to become like him and colonize Saturn’s moon?

I would’ve liked this movie better if they’d stayed with the “there’s something alive inside him” vibe and go from there.

Movie Review – Avengers: Infinity War

Movie Review – Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers Infinity War poster.jpgThe movie opens with Thanos possessing one of the Infinity stones. Soon, he defeats the Hulk and gains another stone. Most of the movie is spent with the Avengers and their friends trying to block Thanos from gaining any more.

Without creating further spoliers, I’ll stop there. The action and special effects were supurb. However, I did feel that some of the storyline was lacking. Instances where there could’ve been deeper conversations between characters, etc. was glazed over.

The ending of the movie felt rushed and I worry that my prediction of what will come in Part 2 of this movie will happen. I want to be surprised and awed and while I enjoyed Infity War immensly the shock value of the ending didn’t resonate with me.

***Spolier Alert *** I feel like the characters vanishing was a ploy and they’ll be back.

What about you? Have you seen Infinity Wars? What’s your thoughts?

My rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

When is the next Infinity Wars coming out?

It’s tentatively scheduled to be released on May 3, 2019
