I honestly have no idea yet what it's even about except that the poster looks weird and Margot Robbie looks hot in that outfit. I'll watch it first and then I'll be very interested in all the insane arguing on Youtube, but I've learned to stay away from all this stuff before I watch movies. It really helps to... enjoy stuff, I guess?

Agreed on all points. I'm personally totally addicted to the hype-cycle across all forms of media, and it's really negatively effected my enjoyment of almost everything. I still enjoy myself, but back when I would just go to the movies knowing nothing, I had a better time.

It's just tough, because so much of my outer-net socializing involves discussing pop culture... not being able to talk about COMING ATTRACTIONS at parties can sometimes be like showing up to class unprepared. I don't know how we wound up here, but that's what's going on.

whoa... nice cross-thread reply

living the dream, man!

teenage/20s me LIVED to watch trailers but so many mainstream movies leave me so cold (upon actual viewing) lately that I don't even watch 'em (unless/until I become convinced I'm not going to watch the movie ever). I feel like it's a winning strategy. I have probably posted about this like 10 times here, and if that's true I apologize for becoming even more of a tiresome caricature.

Yeah, luckily my offline friends don't really do any of this much, and if they do, they're considerate enough to keep it to themselves. I watched all of the Disney Star Wars movies knowing basically nothing going in, and it's made them so, so much more enjoyable. I really wonder how much longer this online hype stuff is going to last because you'd have to think eventually everyone's going to realize it's ruining movies for them.

Aquaman - 0/2

Haven’t shut off a movie in a long time but couldn’t do more than a half hour of this trash. It was like a Michael Bay movie with even worse dialogue, exposition, and action, and the CGI was terrible.

Pet Sematary (2019) - 3
i liked the 1989 film because it's these goofy situation comedy type characters (the handsome family of smilingly oblivious dorks and their lovable folksy neighbor) being dropped into a murdery universe of eldritch mythology, spinal meningitis deformities, and dead babies, all of which end up either killing them or driving them irrevocably insane.
in the remake, right out of the gate, everyone (even the fucking kids) seems to be a brooding sad guy that can't wait to fuck off this mortal coil, so there's no real drama or shock when they start getting knifed to a fuck by angry zombies.

Iron Sky 2 - 4/10

I really liked the first one, but this is just a trainwreck.

that's a bummer. I think each one had a stellar trailer, and I was a bit let down by the first one. I think I'd enjoy it on second watch, with knowledge of what it's trying for.

the unicorn 3.5/10 I really like lauren lapkus as a comedian, but she didn't get to do much in this and the story/characters sucked nearly as much as the male lead.

afaik the problem with the first one was that it was basically written by taking on all kinds of ideas that had been suggested by crowdfunders, so that's why it seems a bit incoherent at times, but ultimately I thought it was a) funny and b) still very well-functioning political satire. This one certainly seems to have been put together the same way in that it consists almost exclusively of ideas that maybe sounded good on paper, but don't fit together and go nowhere. I still think it's a 4/10 because I did laugh a few times and some of the acting is surprisingly decent, but.... nope.

pretty weak steak, mpd

little 3/10 this looked pretty fun based on the trailer but it was just garbage

they shall not grow old [3D] 7/10 apparently I knew almost nothing about WWI!

blackkkkklansman 5/10 although it's somewhat entertaining, this is an overly simple movie seemingly made for stupid people.

The 'funny black american guy' in iron sky totally broke the movie... I didn't think the actor was terrible or anything, it was more like I didn't like interacting with the brain who wrote his scenes. It was the same feeling as seeing Japanese depictions of America, or reading incels talking about parties, dating, and other things that involve sexual chemistry.
