bad times at the el royale 7.5/10? this is really hard to grade. if I were 17 it'd probably blow my mind, but it's also so transparently derivative of other movies/directors that it's hard to get excited about. it did manage to make me feel an emotion or two so it's at least that good

the predator 3/10 very few redeeming qualities - I liked the empty calorie carnage of the third act but holy shit what a waste! as I related to a dear friend, you know you're in for a bad time when olivia munn is a main character and her acting hasn't even made it onto your list of complaints.

It's already been moved to the broom closet screens here, so good luck with that... it's definitely worth seeing in a big 3D theater if you still can, though.

Spiderverse - 6.5/10

Heard too many people say how great it was before seeing it I think. Visually it was very engrossing and interesting, especially in 3d, but people talking about this like it’s the 2nd coming of Akira or something need to get it together. Good, not great.

Annihilation - 8/10

It brought to mind a more processed, focus-group’d Stalker. That last sequence in the lighthouse was something special and the movie probably would have been a 6.5 or 7 without it.

That movie must have been my disappointment of the year. What a fucking snoozefest.

Not that this was anything close to a favourite movie, but that’s not a descriptor I would ever really use as a negative

Well, as a fan of Stanley Kubrick, I can see what you mean. I just thought it started out somewhat interesting, then quickly devolved into an unimaginative amalgamation of a bunch of tired sci-fi and horror tropes and ultimately went absolutely nowhere. If the themes and ideas are interesting, a slow pace can work just fine. You know, Blade Runner. But a boring, slow movie about completely uninteresting ideas that it seems to be so in love with that it has to examine them all in slow motion while Natalie Portman looks on googly-eyed and does her breathless-talking-thing just becomes so pretentious that you wish it'd just choke on its own dick already.

And finding out they inserted a Beckett reference just kind of makes me feel I was right all along. I have a literature degree, so you're not allowed to disagree with me.

bandersnatch 4.5/10 i already wasted plenty of time on this nonsense but will probably waste some more trying to get another ending

a plot that tries to commit to determinism AND the multiverse AND time travel... fukk ovv! and if I read one more internet comment along the lines of "but maybe ur decisions don't matter b/c free will is illusory"... :ax:

Bvndersnvtche sounds like the kind of thing that'd have me entranced for a good while, Black Mirror makes me wanna kill myself though. Like it's not bad, usually, it just puts me in this "bad drugs, day four of three" black mood. Not sure what to do, PROBABLY shouldn't watch it...

as a tech demo the "movie" nails it... there are some dumb production interference type choices that i won't divulge because spoilers... but it's worth a look if you're at all curious. this it certainly doesn't pack much emotional punch, if that's what you're turned off by. not sure if BM bums you out because it's sometimes successfully emotionally engaging or just because it can kinda suck and be too smugly up its own ass...

For whatever reason I thought it would be fun to play Bad News Bears for the kids.
I guess in 1976 you could say "friend" a bunch of times in a PG rated movie.
