    The Banana Splits Movie

    ★★★

    This trend means we could see an animatronic run amok flick set in a failing Rainforest Cafe, or maybe Paul Rubens is up for a Pee Wee's Playhouse from hell? Like Willy's Wonderland, the animatronics aspect is a weak link; these are clearly humans in suits. Guess that's been true for a few generations of cheap exploitation flix. I concur with Red Letter Media that this has better gore and more imaginative kills than the Cage vehicle. The sound effect mix is great and helps to sell each gruesome gag. Now I want to know, who has the rights to the Teletubbies and Barney? 6.2/10

    ★★½

    Should re-watch this for the cinemetrics site and log every single comic sound effect cue. I have now been conditioned to expect a silly or goofy audio hit every time a character does pretty much anything.

    Blissfully gritty and violent combination of pulp action and neo noir. It's the strongest in a string of distinguished work since Schwarzenegger has returned to movies.

Olivia Williams and Mireille Enos turn in exciting gender-defying performances as the hard-boiled women trapped in this nightmare of throbbing, reckless machismo.

    Aquaman

    ★½

    Hollywood really seems to want to fuck fish lately. Aren't we even getting a rehash of The Little Mermaid soon?

    The saddest truth is that Aquaman is no longer just an Entourage gag. It's now an actual joke that imagines James Cameron's Avatar as it might've been cloned by George Lucas during his prequel phase. The filmmakers seem to reference Lucas's empire multiple times, especially with all the political mumbo jumbo and silly underwater creatures. Hell, we even get Django…
