These are pretty bad

Lordin Williams, Staff Writer

To me, it is hard to come across a decent sci-fi film now-a-days. Most creative ideas have been done and are now over with. Whether it be makeup or plot, these movies are definitely some of the movies that just haven’t cut it lately.

Day of the Dead: Bloodlines-2018
I’ve talked about this before; zombie movies are out of date. This movie helps to support my theory. Now, not all movies in this genre are terrible now, just boring to watch. This one, however, is just plain bad. The movie seems to use the same tactic. They make a suspenseful build up, then, what every other horror movie does, a “jump scare”. Boring. Available to watch on Netflix, I suggest you don’t. This is one of those movies that drags on. It doesn’t really catch your interest. The lead actress in the movie is usually much better than this. I understand that she is British, but I feel she should have spent more time practicing her accent. Also, the main protagonist in the movie looks like Joker. With a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and 3.4/10 on IMDB, this is not a movie to watch.

Jupiter Ascending-2015
No offense to Mila Kunis (Jupiter), but this is an awfully boring movie. Mila is an amazing actress, and so is Channing Tatum, and I’m not saying this is their fault, but it is so boring. I think the writers are more to blame for this. The movie seems to have no build up. You can’t really seem to pin-point out where the buildup of the movie is. There was also some irrelevant details that had nothing to do with the plot. There is a scene of Jupiter talking to bees and mentioning of Caine (Channing) being part wolf. With a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 504/10 on IMDB, also not a movie I would spend my money on.

Batman and Robin-1997
I am a huge Batman fan, and it pains me to say this, but, this is probably the worst Batman movie ever made. From the batsuit to the casting, this movie didn’t do Batman justice. First, the suit-up scenes were way over-the-top. The first scene of them suiting up lasts 23 seconds and even shows some unnecessary shots of them that didn’t need to be in the movie. The next thing is they butchered Batgirls story. In the movie, Barbara is Alfred’s niece and her last name is Wilson. That is so wrong. Her name is actually Barbara Gordon and is the daughter of James Gordon. The last thing is the actors. I honestly think they chose the worst person to play Mr. Freeze, Arnold Schwarzenegger. His acting is probably the worst thing in this movie, not to mention he looked like he got painted with silver spray paint. This got a 3.7/10 on IMDB and 10% on Rotten Tomatoes. Well done Warner Bros., well done.
