What is wrong with you lot?

BATMAN (1989)? More like SHITMAN (1989)!

I don't think it's a "no CGI" approach. There's lots of CGI but it's not normally to the primary way he does an effect. The CGI supports the practical stuff. Same as with Fury Road.

Dumb and Dumber, surely?

I have to ask the obvious question... "Why is all men dying SUCH a disaster?" Well, short term anyway.

There's a HAWKEYE trailer out for the new series. It looks relatively grounded but also good fun but how much of the time is down to clever trailer makers vs. the actual show, we'll have to see.

What's a Stan?

Rewatched THE MATRIX last night. It's been a while since I did and, has oft been stated,  the knowledge that Lily and Lana have transitioned adds new layers to it.

Anyway, it's great. If i was to nitpick? The dialogue, though meme city, is either servicable, cliched or too on the nose.

And we're Keanu and Hugo really that young

Continuing on the Brad Bird kick with THE INCREDIBLES.


Tiny Tips The Next Generation also loved it.

I watched Infinity War and Endgame back-to-back and it's not clear why the second one would be regarded as so woeful compared to the first.

I mean, I think its awful in MANY capacities beyond its comparisons to Infinity War (a thoroughly mediocre is enjoyable experience) due to just how thuddingly, blindingly, dreary and tiresome it is as a piece of "art"* unto itself.

*I use this term with the loosest of meanings when it comes to the house of mouse.

I know i often use things like "More like AVENGERS: SHITGAME" as shorthand myself but these are pretty broad brush strokes. Any chance of an example of "dreary" or "tiresome"?

I mean I certainly think some of the set pieces could be trimmed for time especially if there are beats in there for characters I'm not particularly engaged with but "dreary" and "tiresome" I just don't get. Genuinely curious.

THE IRON GIANT is pretty much class from beginning to end.

The early days CGI works a treat but the true brilliance is surely in the compact storytelling. Barely a frame wasted... there's nothing in the seconfd half that isn't set up in the first half.

Plus the four key human characters all get a bit of time to breathe and bring the character of the Iron Giant out as much as the animation. Vin Diesel put more effort into his performance here than the last three FAST AND FURIOUS movies put together.

Aw man, that's terrible. GIRLS ALOUD were a fantastic pop band (a much maligned genre) and she seemed a good laugh.

I very much enjoyed FREE GUY despite it being predictable and by the numbers.

So after about 10 episodes, season 10 of THE WALKING DEAD has a brilliant conclusion to the Whisper War. Beta's rampage through Alexandria is cut short suprisingly and brilliantly by Judith. Alpha meets a fitting end having gone toe to toe with Daryl , dying in the arms of her daughter Lydia but without reconciliation.

Except that doesn't happen, the two of them get up and walk it off like Halloween bogeymen and now I've got another dozen episodes to plough through... i swear, it's like doing homework sometimes.

INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE really is fucking terrible on every level. It doesn't know who the lead heroic fighter pilot is so it has three of them, it doesn't know who the comic relief is so it has three of them, it doesn't know who to bring back from the original movie so it has about ten of them... it's ugly as sin despite obviously spending a shit ton of time on computer effects, it too often copies shots from the original almost exactly (because, presumably, people liked it the first time round so let's do it again) and the dialogue is pure cheese and too knowingly comedic in tone as opposed to the pure B-movie of the original. And every pilot can not pull off any manoeuvre with screaming. And the message? Apparently we need more guns and militarization.

More like "Independence day: Shit."
