Review:

Wow, just wow. This movie was just a string of clich├ęs and tropes, there was no build up it was from the get go the aliens are trying to kill us, here feel something for these people. Nope, not going to happen. Here watch a woman sacrifice herself for a new mother and newborn. Watch this father give his life for his child. Watch this dork say things that get the girl to like him. This movie was seriously horrible, but not in a way that made it good. This movie was never good, never. They took an interesting premise, a good piece of source material to build from, and made a joke.

Review:

So happy to finally see a good movie. The last two were so bad I was starting to get depressed.

It’s been a while since I’ve read the books and I’ve heard that they changed some things, but I thought that they got the tone perfect. I was properly sad by the time it ended and wished, yet again, that I owned the books so I could read the ending. Though there’s a ton of even more sad stuff to come.

Great addition to the series and really looking to the last installment.

Review:

I really enjoyed these books and while I thought the first movie was good it just didn’t have the same excitement for me that the book had. This movie, I thought, was much better. As soon as it was over I wanted to watch the next movie. Since I couldn’t I wanted to read the next book.

I haven’t seen any of these movies in theaters but if I can I might try and see the next one.

4/5
