Thread: What movie did you see today?

  1. #2191
    Tried to put off prepping for prospectus defense by watching movies and was punished for it.

    The King's Man—sucked, only saving grace was Rhys Ifans and that just barely. Matthew Vaughn isn't allowed to write stuff anymore.
    Fistful of Vengeance—sucked, the show at least was watchable.
    Taken 2 and 3—sucked, 3 was better than 2 though.
    The Marksman—sucked, no further comments.
    Cold Pursuit—sucked, but was at least original.

    Karma is real.

    The Batman

    Def. worth the price of admission—you get, like, ten endings for the price of one. Pattinson is a good—if boring—Batman, though his Bruce Wayne is kinda meh. Zoë Kravitz is excellent as Selina Kyle/Catwoman; it was reported, recently, that she was passed over by Nolan and his team because she was too "urban", and she'd def. have been wasted on Nolan. Colin Farrell as The Penguin is solid (I have nfi how they're gonna make a watchable show out of his shenanigans though), John Turturro's slime game is on point as always, Jeffrey Wright's Jim Gordon is okay. I get what they were going for with Paul Dano's Riddler, but I've just never really liked that particular kind of plot arc—the classic serial killer plot was a good move though, and I wish they'd have really doubled down on the detective schtick.

    Things that sucked:

    1. Standard Thomas Wayne hagiography. They were about to put a twist on it, but chickened out as always. Batman will never be great until DC works up the courage to sacrifice Thomas Wayne's reputation.

    Spoiler:
    lame-ass Joker teaser. Just stop trying to revive the Joker. Let him die or make Jack Nicholson reprise the role.


    Anyway go see it if it's safe. nb: ur ass will h u r t—it's a 3h long movie. Bring a cushion and be strategic about fluids.

    Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness—I enjoyed it, but I don't wanna see more variations on the "wisecracking zoomer girl redeems cynical old man" theme. Elizabeth Olsen remains the MCU's MVP. The action was kinda rubbish, and the obvious fishing for cheers and applause just didn't work out, but the visuals are great, the plotholes aren't too distracting, and the overall story is decent. The ending is pretty satisfying.

    Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers

    Way better than it had any right to be. Story is super generic (they admit as much) but the fun comes in trying to catch 30 years worth of cameos. Much of which arent Disney property. My favorite was Harry Potter.

    Tried to watch ‘the Batman’. I guess I’m officially too old for this kind of crap.
    Congratulations America

    The story was too ff-ing thin for a movie this long. Felt a bit like left overs from Wandavision re-heated.
    Congratulations America
