Mysterio is such a great character and it made for some awesome action scenes. A bit long due to all the plot points that had to be touched on, though.
I'm sure people during WWII didn't want to watch WWII films. Similarly, I want nothing to do with anything related to the pandemic.
With the political and social commentary being as heavy handed as it was in the script, it's basically just replacing the pandemic with a comet.
I was going to give it a 3 until that after credits scene rolled, because up until that point it was an ok film. As mediocre as the film was, the…

Pretty funny quote, but there is some truth to it, mainly that the story seemed to fizzle out and leave the viewer disappointed. Definitely my least favorite of hers, although it was still enjoyable and worth a watch.
One last film to end off 2021, and a Wes Anderson anthology was just what I was looking for. I loved the 3 more easily digestible stories (although there was still a ton of stuff happening the entire time).
As always this will require multiple viewings but this one is definitely my fave since Grand Budapest Hotel.
Weird as hell. I've never seen another film I could describe as "cute and violent". I did hope for a more impactful story, but unfortunately it came off as more of a vehicle for the amazing CGI stuff. The beautiful setting also helped set the mood, and I'm giving it an extra half star just for that very brief dream sequence with the glowing eyes. Very cool stuff.
This still shows up under "Coven of Sisters" on Netflix, for anyone wondering.
I'm always down for a movie about witches, however the ones about actual witch trials are always way more depressing than the supernatural horror type.
They really manage to tell the story without making the experience completely miserable and crushing, choosing to focus quite a bit on the bond between the women. It really exceeded my expectations and was impeccably shot to top it all off.
Still not an easy film to sit through by any means, but a rewarding one for those willing to watch.
Christmas Marathon 2021
You know, this is actually a great video game adaptation. What more could anyone have wanted out of this kind of thing in 1995?
Look at those goddamn sets, they're actually unreal. The soundtrack is an absolute classic, they didn't bog down the story with unneccesary details, and the fight choreography was not bad at all.
Most of the CGI is pretty dated, sure, but that animatronic Goro was pretty awesome. No one can convince me that…
