I watched The Tomorrow War yesterday. It was pretty good.

Don't get me wrong, it's absolutely ridiculous, even fairly predictable. But damn me if it wasn't an entertaining movie.
Screw you all, and have a nice day!

I binned it off after seeing IGN gave it 3/10 but may give it a shot now.

Movie is garbage that undermines its own world building but even worse itís own plot points at every turn

I watched Bill & Ted Face the Music (now on HULU, in the U.S.). It's not as good as the first two and has some obvious limitations as kind of a niche project with a small-ish budget, but it's a cute and good-natured nostalgia trip if you're feeling receptive to one. It's not as funny or as patient with its plot or its characters as it could be, but ah well, if anyone can coast on good will it might be these two goofballs. It does more right than Coming 2 America did, at least. William Sadler (returning as Death) and Anthony Carrigan (the scene-stealer from Barry) are both very good and very funny in this.

Why did Jupiter Ascending flop? I just rewatched and still enjoyed it.

Re-watching BLADE RUNNER 2049, and man I always forget how gorgeous this flick is and how incredible the score is. Easily in my top ten fave movies of all time, might even be top 5.

I saw this on Saturday. It's certainly not great but there are some excellent moments.

I saw the ending coming a long way off though.

Everyone needs to go watch LA 92. It's on Disney+ in Canada and I THINK Netflix in the States (could be D+ there too, as it's Nat Geo).

I don't know what it is about documentaries about events that took place in my own lifetime that make it affect me on another level. We heard about the bigger points of the LA Riots in '92 in Canada, like the Rodney King beating and the subsequent miscarriage of justice with the cops getting off, and whatnot....but like I had no idea about Latasha Harlins, another innocent death and miscarriage of justice, the Watts 1965 events as well were completely unknown to me as a Canadian.

This is also one of my fave types of documentaries, in that there are no talking heads. Footage from all avenues at the time is allowed to speak for itself, and I always feel that's more genuine and poignant in this type of doc.

Anyways, it's a stunning, thought-provoking, and just genuinely incredibly made documentary of the whole situation. WELL WELL worth your time if you've not seen it.

Is Gunpowder Milkshake on anyone's radar? Looks like a John Wick type flick, but instead with female assassins, who operate out of a library. Yes please.

In the mood for something different. I donít typically watch horror/Halloween movies out of season but Iím thinking of starting up Fear Street Part One 1994.

17 minutes and 2 seconds into it. This is stupid and fun and has great clothing and sets and music.

I think I like it.

Finished. All the above sticks but after while the cast get a bit annoying and they most certainly seem like they are acting in 2021 instead of 1994 so points off for that shit. It is fun but I wonít ever need to rewatch this.

Part 2 1978 is up and I have hopes for it. I need a break before I start it though.

Hmm never heard of it but flipping through Netflix Cosmic Sin with Bruce Willis caught my eye.

Iím 5 minutes and 52 seconds into it and itís fairly pretty kinda tense. We ll see how it goes.

I can't remember when I last saw a Bruce Willis film and didn't wonder why he doesn't just retire. He was perhaps my favorite actor in the 80s and 90s because he added a perfect mix of humanity and comedy to his action characters. Now there's no magic to his name any longer.
