Got to see Doctor Sleep for cheap, so I did. It was way better than I thought it would be. Good horror and excellent characters and themes. Some things were uneasy to sit through and there was even well used humor here and there. Right now I would watch Doctor Sleep again rather than The Shining.

Just got back from Ed Norton's newest, Motherless Brooklyn. It was good. It was a little slow in the middle, but it had a great cast, great period piece, great angle. Like many Ed Norton flicks, just a solid flick.

Saw VVitch the other day. I liked it, really more of a family drama set in Puritan times with some supernatural elements thrown in that eventually devolves into madness. which is great. In that respect its like Hereditary lite.
Some things are better left unsaid. This isn't one of them

Expected nothing, but pleasantly surprised. A solid anti-hero movie, which was a breath of fresh air after MCU goodie-two-shoes.
The only negative things I can say about it - lack of development of the Venom himself and mediocre final villain. On the other hand it is obvious that making Venom fighting of the normal human would be boring.

Deadpool 2.
It managed to do something inconceivable - it is a good X-Men movie.
And also it is a family movie with side dish of guts and blood and black humor.
I think, those elements were not necessary, sometimes it felt like movie was trying to hard to be gross. Special effects were amazing and Colossus once again was amazing.

Ready Player One.
A good sequel to the Tron, which Tron never had.
Very 80-s fun action-adventure romp.
Though aesop about living in real world is completely broken, if it was supposed to be an aesop in the first place.

Avengers: End Game.
Amazing ending to the 10 years of MCU and tribute to the amazing work of the Marvel Studios.
Interestingly, as opposed to majority o the MCU movies, this one doesn't end on a happy note, but on a bittersweet one.

Spider Man: Far from Home.
So far the most uneven movie from last MCUs, I've seen.
Plot doesn't make much sense and sometimes outright stupid, Peter's class mates are annoying and make me think as if SMFFH is some sort of parody. Misterio's power are underutilized. MJ doesn't really feel like she is the same character from the first movie.
The are some good parts, but all in all I feel like its probably my least favorite movie from the MCU, next to Hulk.

With that I've finished all MCU movies and might say, regardless of quality of some separate pictures, it is an amazing project. And I hope future will net even more good movies from this series.
Of course, they are not some sort of groundbreaking "Citizen Kane" stuff, but they are serviceable fun, not worse than any other generic summer blockbusters from the last few years.

Jurassic World 2.
If JW1 felt like a retread of JP1, this movie feels like a retread of JP: Lost World. Just instead of 90% on the island, 10% in the city, this movie is like 40% on the island, 60% in the city.
All in all it is fun movie, which feels more like an adaption of some countless comic books based on Jurassic Park. In particular the one where some drug kingpin steals several Raptors to use them as personal army or something. On one hand, this movie thematically feels close to the idea of the first movie, on the other - it is so on the nose with its message it makes me feel a bit odd. Dinosaurs a bit less humanized, than in JW1, so that's a plus.
All in all, its a good movie, but nothing incredible.
