I watched all the Fear Street movies. The first two are both squarely "okay" imo -- BK is totally right that the period aspect is just on the surface....everything about them seems very modern except like there's no cell phones, and the music matches the time (but songs are largely obvious choices). The scripts don't really do anything new either, but the kills are occasionally pretty great and there's kind of a commitment to all around Rater R territory I wasn't expecting.
The third one though is actually a step up. Not great, but less generic, more interesting, and it actually wraps the overall story up pretty nicely. It captures more of the magic the first two were trying for. They all come as a package since it's one long story, and they're each well over the 90 minutes they should be, so I guess you just gotta cost-benefit your time.

They came with white hands and left with red hands.

It's the John Wick movie of French Cuisine, if John Wick was a mentally ill forest hobo.

I didn't realize how much I needed a new Jackass movie till I saw this trailer.

Can't help but notice Bam Mageria is not in the trailer. That's probably for the best.

That looks great, had me LOL there...


Bam is a mess atm it seems, think either the director or producer had to take out a restraining order against him. Also saw some videos of him on reddit, dude needs some help, sad to see.

Well this looks fucking dope. Directed by Ridley, written by Damon & Affleck, and staring them and Adam Driver, and Jodie Comer too? Yeah, I am excite.

Comer finally growing on you?

Looks good.

Driver is a weird looking mofo and no matter how many roles I see him in I canít ever see him as anyone but the boyfriend guy on Girls.

I don't dislike her, I just didn't care for that spy show she was on or the character.

And I liked her as Rey's mom for the brief moments she was in TROS.

I shall definitely watch this. It's so dumb and ridiculous and I can't help but laugh at it.

Rambo: Last Blood.

It's not good but there is a lot of booby trap preparation and a lot blood.

Oh and I watched Outcast on Netflix. Nicholas Cage, Hayden Christensen crusade era(ish) adventure. It's not good. Poor script, badly edited, you have to join the loose plot elements together yourself but as the plot is so generic that's not difficult. It is the kind of movie where you can do something else whilst watching it and not miss anything. Nic Cage's character by the end is like the casting director said "we need someone who is going to bring a wacky Nicholas Cage-esque element to this character."

I rather enjoyed it and got some admin done at the same time.

Freaky -- the slasher-meets-Freaky Friday movie with Vince Vaughn. Vaughn is genuinely imposing here as the baddie, they put his size to good use. When the switch happens, he's kinda funny, but coming after the two new Jumanji movies the tough-dude-as-teen-girl tank feels pretty much empty. But the actual teenage girl (Kathryn Newton) is real good at embodying the psycho part too. There's some pretty clever bits as both of them get used to new size/strength dynamics. All the other characters are pretty rote, and the plot isn't full of any big surprises, but the occasional little things do count for something. So as far as slasher hybrids go this is definitely not Scream level, but is probably half a grade lower than Happy Death Day -- so not bad, not great, kinda fun enough.
