Big - Extended Edition (1988)
I've always loved this movie, but I've also felt it was kinda rushed and out of place in certain scenes. Now with several scenes added that where originally cut for the original version, it is a much more wholesome movie about growing up too fast too soon. (And I've always had a small crush on Elizabeth Perkins myself.)
Monster Hunter (2020)
Milla Jovovich & Tony Jaa (Ongbak) finally teams up to fight some monsters in an epic sci-fi/fantasy movie. The beginning ruined it a little due to a clichéd hysterical female solder (I think statistically more of the team would freak after seeing those monsters), and the fact that a non-anatomically correct monster is able to move that fast in the sand like a sandworm is a little ridicules. A bit thin on the plot/story part and it's sometimes cut choppily, but there's enough action to enjoy here. I got chills by those spider-like monsters (which I really liked btw), and the fight scenes isn't bad. Liked the epic music also. Got really surprised to see a cat pirate and had to laugh at how surreal the movie was at times. You can clearly see the movie draws inspiration from Asian anime/manga series with flying and big weapons/swords.
However, without knowing where it comes from exactly (it says Capcom but I don't play any their games), it just became one of my favourite due to these actors (and I never expect these movies to be Oscar worthy anyway), there is a surprise in the last moment where yet another famous actor enters, Ron Perlman. I agree with some IMDB users here: "Tremors meets Resident Evil" or "Stargate meets Pitch Black", and I really hope they will make Chapter 2 (or this Ch1 will have no meaning on its own). And yes, it is better than most game-movie adaptations, like MK Annihilation or the latest DOOM movie, and certainly lightyears better than the atrocious WW84 movie :P
