June '15 Movies Digest

Not the most glorious month...


Acting: 2.5/5
Story: 3/5
Perception: 2.5/5

Rating: 2.5/5

When out of a cast including Johnny Depp, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Goldblum and Gwyneth Paltrow, the most enjoyable character is played by Paul Bettany there's something rotten in that movie. And in this case it is the scenario, which is like a bad Wes Anderson homage oozing with over-exaggerated and caricatured situations. The film has some good moments nonetheless but the general impression is quite messy.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Acting: 3/5
Story: 3/5
Perception: 3/5

Rating: 3/5

I thought this movie was destined for failure but in the end it came to be functional. My main gripes concern Megan Fox and her extended tie-ins into the story, the lack of a charismatic villain, and the lack of originality in the last act...The Amazing Spiderman was not so far back. But the turtles can be considered a success given the discontent that they first created. So this movie really earned the chance to improve for the sequel.
