Tomorrow War. JK Simmons is super buff! But the story - oh God, that's a dumpster fire. Bulletproof aliens? Use low caliber guns! Are you in a stairwell? Machine guns! Losing against a superior adversary? Just Russia that and send lots of people. It'll probably work. Need squad tactics? Skip basic training for a short YouTube video! Honestly, I was just hoping Simmons would yell out, "I want Spiderman!" Nope. Wasted my life.

I watched 'Joker' recently. It didn't live up to the hype around it at all. It felt like a watered-down remake of 'Taxi-driver' that was contorted to shoehorn batman into the story.

Taxi-driver wasn't even really a great movie itself in my honest, and it is definitely not dated enough to warrant a remake.

I'm bored of movie and video games, as they are just rehashes that don't live up to tje originals.

just watched fight club. about to talk about minor spoilers.
so towards the beginning of the movie when the main character's talking to the doctor about his insomnia there's a single frame where tyler durden (brad pitt) is inserted into the movie. for split second tyler durden is standing next to the doctor in the hallway. this of course ties into when tyler durden will take some new frames (of a porno) and insert them into whatever kids movie he's projecting during his job at the theater.
what i really want to know is if this happens any other time during the film and i missed it, or just that one time? anybody know?

The Ritual. I found it on Netflix.

It's a story of a group of adult friends who decide to go on a hiking trip in Sweden, and end up having to take a short cut through the woods. They quickly become lost and experience a series of nightmares and visions, while also being hunted by a monster that chases them to this town of isolated people who worship it like a god.

It's actually an incredible movie. It has quality scary moments and the design for the creature is astounding.

I watched Top Gun: Maverick, and it definitely deserves the hype. I actually went to a theater for it, and realized that I don't really miss the theater-going experience. The movie itself was a simple story told excellently, which is honestly kind of refreshing after suffering through narratives which overcomplicate and collapse like the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Just set a goal and stakes, show concrete progression towards the goal, and have that progression pay off. I've been watching Brandon Sanderson's creative writing lectures on YouTube and it was really interesting to see how the movie does everything he talks about, like how the characters should have a personal connection to the goal, how there needs to be some twist that gives the audience what they were promised and more, things like that. It hit the sweet spot of sequels, it was just different enough from the original.

Loved this one! If you didn't already know, the concept artist who created the monster, Keith Thompson, has a gallery here. I love everything he does, especially because his short descriptions for each work always add another interesting layer onto them. It's weird though, his last communication was how he'd post the concept art for the movie once it had been out for a while, but that was four years ago. Only silence since then.

Watched Greyhound, about Tоm Hanks' characters first run at captain of a convey of ships during WW2. Was ok, no idea what was going on in the ship with their callouts but i guess thats to keep authenticity. I also didn't fееl anything for Hanks' character, or indeed really any of the characters because there was little development of them. Stephen Graham doing his standard Amеrican accent from New York, as well. - 5/10. Looking forward to watch second Avatar as soon as it is out.

They Live with Rowdy Roddy Piper and Keith David. I love big productions with B-movie plots and had a lot of fun watching it.

John Carpenter keeps staying one of my favorite directors.

I know this movie isn't everbody's fancy but I honestly don't give an F.

Friday. I really love this movie because I watched it as a child so I have some memories around it. I like being immersed in the culture of the movie. I live in a mostly white neighborhood so I didn't understand how different things were as a kid compared to being an adult. But the humor is freaking great. The sexy neighbor that cheats on her husband, the dad, oh my god, John Witherspoon (RIP) was amazing and made for that role. Chris Tucker and Ice Cube work off each other so well that you do feel like they have been friends for a long while. Also soundtrack * chef's kiss*, I bump the song "Friday" legit almost every Friday.

But yeah, this movie is for a certain audience. Some of the humor is offensive so it's not for everybody, but I enjoyed it very much.
Edit: I also want to mention about the gang culture. There's a bit of the story line that gets pretty heavy so if you decide to watch it, be warned if you're not into violence.
