It seems like every Netflix original has an interesting premise and a half-baked execution. While Miles Teller, Chris Hemsworth and Jurnee Smollett are solid, the film itself is only mildly entertaining and you can see the twists coming a mile away. It's not so much bad as just bland.

Top Gun: Maverick

"Come on Mav do some of that pilot Shit!"

'Top Gun: Maverick' manages to achieve the impossible when it comes to modern summer movies, and that's finding the perfect balance of crowd-pleasing entertainment and a quality movie.

I originally had no interest or excitement for this movie and wasn't planning on seeing it in the cinema, until I saw the glorying reviews it received that convinced me to check it out, and I'm glad I did.

This was the most satisfying movie experience of the year.

All the flying sequences...well, it …

Jurassic World Dominion

Dinosaurs run amok but there's still a park

Ludicrous plot aside, I had a good time with this sequel being touted as the 'epic finale' for the now 29 year old movie franchise. Though I can see them doing more since it will probably make a lot of money.
It's cool seeing the original cast team up with the younger crew. Pratt and Howard are decent but newcomer DeWanda Wise comes close to stealing the show as a badass pilot. Campbell Scott is pretty bad as an evil tech CEO though. It's heartwarming to see Sam Neill and Laura Dern reprise …

Funny and heartwarming

Okay so I'll say I had absolutely nothing to expect from this film but a good time and let me tell you that's exactly what this movie gave me I laughed out loud several times and I felt the warmth of the belcher family just trying to look out for each other I'll admit I could have done without the musical numbers cause they really.made absolutely no sense besides maybe the beginning but aside from that it was a fabulous film that I absolutely loved my favorite is Louise she's absolutely …

More a thriller than an action film, this Netflix scifi drama does benefit from Chris Hemsworth as a morally ambiguous scientist experimenting on convicts in a drug trial. There are some unsettling moments like a suicide scene and characters freaking out on drugs. But it is boring at times.

Over-Indulgent, Messy But Wildly Entertaining

It's easy to see the series is spinning its wheels by this point but it's still entertaining and thanks to the inclusion of a trio of familiar faces, at least tries to go out on a high note.

Dominion is once again about power run amok, this time in the form of Lewis Dodgson (Campbell Scott) - a cross between Steve Jobs and Elon Musk - who has turned his company, Biosyn, into a $1 billion giant thanks to genetics. But, of course, the good-natured face of the company is hiding some dark …

Just Because You Could, Doesn't Mean You Should

I've seen a lot of crummy first acts in my time but Dominion's is a true achievement in laziness. It's joyless in an almost deliberate way, contemptuous of its audience and the millions it will make at the box office, like someone had a gun to Universal's head to make this trilogy in the first place. It is an instant shot of adrenaline to the heart when the film's first action scene kicks in and the hidden cabal of people actually excited to work on this film show their hand in a mixed …

Still feel the need for speed? Good news!

Director Joseph Kosinski has had an interesting career in Hollywood. He made his debut with the long awaited sequel TRON: LEGACY. I found it visually stunning but a bit shallow. His next film was with Tom Cruise and it was a sci-fi movie called Oblivion and I liked it fine. His third movie was a firefighting drama called ONLY THE BRAVE and it was shockingly good. Made my top movie list for 2017. And now we have his latest film TOP GUN MAVERICK which is also a sequel that was long delayed for …

Interceptor

Stripped down and simplified action thriller that it's probably fitting for it to be on Netflix. Elsa Pataky is an American soldier who has to prevent a nuclear holocaust by a mad terrorist (Luke Bracey) on a top-secret ocean platform. Pataky has the makings for a capable action lead. Luke Bracey is reliably smarmy as the villain. Except the movie is just not that interesting. A lot of it takes places in confined spaces or corridors like a typical DIE HARD clone. There are a couple fight …

Maverick Soars to Action Blockbuster Heights

Top Gun: Maverick perform the rarest of rare feats - not only is it a sequel that is as good if not better than the original, it is also one that bucks the trend of being good despite the vast amount of time between entries. And it all rests on the shoulders of Tom Cruise who has proven to be an action movie star of the highest caliber.

Maverick doesn't waste any time diving right into the action as we find our still-captain Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell once again ignoring higher-ups in order …
