SS: 4/10 You know what else is burning? Me.

When you heard the name James Gunn, yes, his marvellous Guardians of The Galaxy franchise earned a good reputation for him. So when you saw his name on the producer list, you might think this movie gonna be super good. However, always remember, the producer is not equal to the director. Just like Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Alita, or The Girl in the Spider’s Web, these films may be produced by those talent directors but not directed by them. Even those talent genius’ names on the cast list, you cannot fully trust the quality of the film. What should you trust? Login, see if I update the latest review, of course.

OK, let’s gets to the point. “What if Superman is bad” is the main topic if this film. A boy in a spacecraft fell off the sky, took in by a lovely couple. After 10 years, his evil power was wakened by his spacecraft. Since then a demon from space brought death and horror to this small town. The movie has three phases, discover the power, start killing, and unstoppable. Every phase has an event to push the story forward. But those events are too obvious on purpose, once happened one thing and you know what will happen next. Combine this with the horror atmosphere, audiences are more like waiting for the scare instead of they should be scared unexpectedly. When you know what will happen, you want to push the fast forward button, sadly you can’t, you are in a cinema.


SS: 5/10 Another disappointing ending of a film franchise.

2019, what a year. The original six Avengers finished, the Game of Throne ended, the long-life comedy The Big Bang Theory finished as well. After a long time waiting, the last FOX’s X-MEN movie, X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX finally in theatre today.

Fox’s X-MEN movies’ quality steep down so fast after the X-Men: Days of Future Past. The X-Men: Apocalypse is a total disaster. Lots of fans gave their hope on this one, the dark phoenix, however, it fails again.

Consider the title is “Dark Phoenix”, this film should be talking about how is Jean Grey turn into the dark side, and what will the rest of X-Men handling this situation, taking account of that Jean was their friend. While this film only achieved part of these. The director gave Jean reasons to trigger her to turn bad: embrace cosmic power, father abandoned her, and prof. X lied to her. Then should be how powerful she could be, the fight in the community shows her power. So, how dark could she be? This film did not answer this question. Powerful is not equal to dark. The movie is Dark Phoenix, you have to make her dark enough. In the fight scene in New York, the Brotherhood and the X-Men are much darker than Jean! Their fight definitely will hurt or kill those civilians. Jean only killed Raven(Mystique), oh and cops. But which number is doubtlessly lower than the people in the subway or the bus in New York!

If I am the writer, I would let her kill more X-Men or innocent people in front of the camera. Because of the Alien control her brain, brainwashed her, she killed a lot of people, the rest of the X-Men and Brotherhood divided into two sides, kill and capture. No matter what sides they are on, they have to deal with the alien first and together. The more they after Jean, the more mutants of them died. At last, only Scott and Prof. X still wanna cure Jean, other rest of mutants want her dead. That Alien use Jean to hurt the Brotherhood and then want her to kill Scott(or prof. X) which wake Jean up, then she decided to perish together with the alien.

I am not an expert, but making mutants fighting “Groot” is not a good idea. IMDB gave a 43 score, quite fair.
