It's nice to see Blomkamp return to the thing that made him famous...though let's leave the problematic S.A. white rap duo out of it this time.

And I LOVED D9, so I'll be on board to check this out.

Caught the very last scene of Demolition Man as I was surfing around. Sylvester Stallone's character has a line where he says something about wanting to know how that damn three seashells thing works. Um, what is that about?

Anyone watched Sound of Metal? I've read great things. Riz Ahmed is currently one of my favorite actors.

This is available Friday. On any you guys' radar?



I remember when it was announced (a few years ago now I believe), I thought it sounded pretty cool. I'm not sure what the final cut of this entails but I'll be looking for reviews to see how it is received.

We paid for the premium access on Disney+ to watch RAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON and it was beyond worth the $35 extra. A spectacular movie start to finish. Gorgeously animated, wonderful voice cast, great score, and a wonderful south East Asian story.

Amazing, if you’re even considering the extra coin for it, do it. Worth it!

I saw the trailer for that the other day on tv and it peaked my interest even though I typically steer clear of those animated Disney movies. Is there singing in it? Graphics wise it appeared like it was a step up so maybe it wouldnít trigger a migraine as many of those movies seem to do to me. Clone Wars movie gave me fits. Thankfully the series were 30 min eps or I may have had problems.

Iíll probably break if she asks tomorrow now.

I'm gonna watch Raya tonight, now I'm pretty excited.
For recent movies:
I did watch Tom and Jerry -- it kinda sucks. I think Rob Delaney and Michael Pena are two of the funnier dudes around, so I gave it a shot. No fun for adults, and probably pretty boring for kids too as Tom and Jerry are essentially just two members of an ensemble cast of mostly doofy humans. Occasional mayhem ensues.

And also Coming 2 America -- which doesn't 'suck' per se but is underwhelming. The main plot is okay if predictable -- a next gen reverse-retread of the first movie -- but there's little warmth or charisma to most of the new characters. None of them are Eddie Murphy at his height, that's for sure. Wesley Snipes is great though, and for all its assembly line plot mechanics there are some good messages and even some laughs. I think it's best taken as a cast-and-character reunion special, as most of the fun stuff is with like the barbershop guys, the preacher, etc. returning.

They came with white hands and left with red hands.

Oh Iím waiting till June 4th..Iím not paying $29.99 just to view it.

Is that how all this stuff works with this new approach ex: latest WW84 on MAX? I havenít renewed that script since hurricanes but was under the impression that they were just playing these new movies for anyone that was current. I was going to renew for the Dune remake but will pass if itís an extra unlock fee. Maybe a silly assumption but itís the one I was under..

Nah, the stuff on MAX is genuinely on MAX while also in theaters, and anyone with MAX can watch it -- but then it gets pulled from MAX after like a month or so (maybe so dollar theaters can show it too? Or I dunno, maybe for DVD sales).

The Disney thing is closer to the way some studios are putting their movies up immediately for rental but charging family-in-theater prices for that rental, with the Disney caveat being you have to have Disney+ already too.

Anyway, Raya was pretty awesome. If your kids are like 2-3 years away from being able to handle Avatar: TLA (for its maturity level or its series-length attention span), Raya is is a very good younger take on a similar kind of lesson. And while there's no singing in it UNFORTUNATELY, the score is reaaaally nice.
