    This OVA was much darker than I expected. They could have died so many times. Overall, a pretty fun and exciting episode. I still think they should have just let Jean get the damn lizard. Oh, and it was sad seeing Marco at the end, when he says, "I wonder what kind of soldiers we're all going to become." 💔💔💔

    This show started off really strong. But it's really hard to stick the landing when you begin with such a great premise. It's almost too much to live up to. That said, I did enjoy this show a lot. But I think WandaVision remains the superior MCU show thus far (at least for me). I'm still hoping Mobius will get to ride his jet ski.

    I love how when Jean and Sasha are busy cooking, Mikasa's busy working out, showing off them ripped abs. 😂🥊💪🍳🥩

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★

    A worthy sequel. Impressed with the acting by both Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe. They both emote really well. The terror on their faces was always very believable to me. I still think you could wear some tennis shoes and be just as quiet as walking barefoot. 👟>👣

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★½

    Originally, I wasn't planning on watching this because I already saw the 2017 version and wasn't sure I needed to revisit it. But I succumbed to the hype. It's definitely a much more coherent film, with much better setups and payoffs. I even felt emotional during some scenes, which is rare for me in a superhero movie. In the 2017 version, Cyborg felt like an ancillary character, whereas here he felt like the linchpin to the whole story. All in all, I'm really glad I saw it, even though I had to watch it over 3 days (June 26-28).

    At least it was better than the Logan Paul vs. Floyd Mayweather fight.

  • 2081

    2081

    ★★½

    I was led to this movie in a roundabout way. Someone mentioned "Diana Moon Glampers" on Twitter and I didn't understand the reference. I looked it up and saw it was in reference to a character from a Kurt Vonnegut short story, "Harrison Bergeron." And "Harrison Bergeron" was the name of a Snapcase song that I've always liked, but I never bothered to look up the meaning of the song title. Anyway, that led me to this movie, which was just serviceable. Nothing great, but I'm glad I now understand the reference.

    So, Garret Dillahunt just left one zombie show to go into another? HAHA! All in all, it was exactly what I expected. Stupid dumb fun. I'll admit the whole "alpha" thing was a unique angle on the zombie genre. And I like how they made the Vanderohe character a Joseph Campbell-quoting philosophy major...who's really swole. 😂

  • Back to the 2015 Future

    Back to the 2015 Future

    ★★★

    This was goofy as hell, but the main dude does a halfway decent Marty McFly impersonation. I really only watched this because I found out that Claudia Wells (the original Jennifer) was in it. Unfortunately, she was only onscreen for less than a minute. The Goldie Wilson cameo and the conversation with Data and Spike were probably the highlights for me.

  • Mortal Kombat

    Mortal Kombat

    ★★★½

    It's a stupid fun popcorn movie, but no one can ever beat Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa's Shang Tsung from 1995, especially the way he delivered the "Your soul is mine!" line. Also, I have to say, even though I thought Robin Shou fit the Liu Kang look better, I can't deny that Ludi Lin was straight shredded for this movie.

    Wow, I just saw this on YouTube. I had no idea Isiah even made this documentary. This is a great encapsulation of tricking and how it all started. R.I.P. Hans Wikkeling

  • The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    The Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    ★★★½

    There were some really exciting sequences sprinkled throughout, but there were also some lulls. The opening aerial fight of the first episode was great, and I loved the Madripoor scenes. I enjoyed seeing Florence Kasumba/Ayo and Zemo was surprisingly entertaining. The final episode felt a little underwhelming for me, but all in all, it was a solid Marvel series.
