Unreviewed Films of 2015/16: Part II

If you thought that I spent alot of time watching Films,'d be right.

You also don't know the half of it, as many newer Films just don't get talked about here.  Let's play catch up again...
 Gods of Egypt
Bright, flashy and just kind of there.  Neat looking...but you get over it after a while.
 Jem and the Holograms
As someone who isn't even remotely the Audience, I...kind of liked it.  Not mind-blowing,  but not some stinker.
Kung Fu Panda 3
Some good moments throughout and some interesting Cast Choices...but little has changed here.
Crimson Peak
Del Toro a person who can make Gothic Films look good.  For everything else, meh.
A good, serious Film about a serious issue.  No complaints really.
Pride & Prejudice & Zombies
Better than it has any right to be.  It does the Story pretty good justice, while mostly-working for me.
A serious Doc about people doing something I'd never do.  The shots from the Mountain are scary!
Central Intelligence
No surprises here, but fun stuff.  Here's a rare Theater one for you!
Inside Out
I waited awhile for this one's good.  The concepts aren't as original as people act like though.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials
I continue to do this to myself.  On the plus side, no Mazes...or solid Plot really.
Way better than I figured, as the Story has some depth and consequences.  Now tied for the best John Cena Film.
Bridge of Spies
I've waited a long time to cover this one! alright.  Good all-around (especially Rylance), but Spielberg doesn't do anything different anymore!
The Big Short
The structure was a bit odd here and an Arc could be cut, but still a good Film covering what must be covered.
The Boy
The other scary Movie with a Walking Dead Actor is...kind of ridiculous.  The big hook/twist is right out of the 1980s!
The Visit
Why was this Found Footage?  Why was it all so obvious?  Why bring back the 'End a Horror Film with a Rap Song' Trope?
Where to Invade Next
I won't get Political here, but the Film brings up some really interesting ideas.  A bit long though, if I'm being picky.
Victor Frankenstein
Let's end with another Max Landis Script!  It is...not that great, even though it gets period details down.  Not much is added by revisiting this material.

There- that ought to cover things for another six months!
