Movies currently in theaters - Worth going? Stay home? Rent later? (2 Viewers)

The Fall Guy was...not good.

It never gains any momentum and the awkward interplay between the main characters is just clunky.

My wife said she enjoyed it because "it's supposed to be dumb". I get that but I just lost patience with it about half way through.

See it in the theater? Not necessary
Rent it? I guess, but I won't watch it again.
The Fall Guy, while not an award winning movie, was entertaining. I had low to medium expectations and was pleasantly surprised.
 
Okay, so as for the actual movie Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes...

I thought it was great!

I worried that it would be too long at 2.5 hours but it wasn't. The story was solid, bordering on epic. The villain is pretty good.

But what impressed me most was the special effects. This movie looks awesome. The CGI faces are incredibly expressive. One of the things that's notoriously difficult is hair and not only does it look natural, it does so when in water as well. That means, the effects blend and aren't a distraction - which is what you want.

It's set up well for a sequel, if we get one.

See it in the theater?: Yes!
Rent it?: Most definitely, especially if you liked the first three at all.
 
Just got back from Furiosa. Meh...
Really? Bummer. I was actually going to try to get to the theater for this one as I loved Fury Road.
I have to qualify that with I'm not a huge MM fan anyway and didn't see Fury. My son saw Fury and said it was much better than this one. Lots of complaints about the CGI. Personally I'm not a fan of the "gimmick" of removing frames or "undercranking" to give it the jittery/sped up look. It seemed excessive or overly noticeable in this one. All that said, it still highly rated on RT and it's 2+ hours of almost non-stop action so not a terrible $6 afternoon movie with free popcorn.
 
One more thing about Fall Guy...

You know that poster from back in the day with Heather Thomas in the hot tub wearing the pink bikini?

When you see the mid-credits scene just remember - that was about 40 years ago. :sadbanana:

Not that I've seen it yet but seeing the 70 year old version will no taint the 25 year old version!@3!@##!@
