    Rebel Moon, I'm fairly sure...

    And hey, at least Snyder can take comfort in the fact that no matter how bad his movie, no matter how shit the writing, no matter how incoherent and derivative the plot, at least he didn't do this:

    Is there really 30min of wheat harvesting?


    I'll be fair: while it does take half an hour to get past the wheat harvesting, it isn't actually just half an hour of harvesting wheat. Though the other stuff isn't interesting enough to say that it's worth it tbh.

    I'm legit perked up if there's 30 min of actual "how to harvest wheat" in this. Love a good trip into productive whimsy.


    Sadly it's not 'how to harvest wheat', it's just people waving scythes around in slow motion.

    Part 2 has a scene where the characters sit around and tell each other their tragic backstories and motivation, and that's the character development you get.

    It's such bad writing.

    And, disappointingly, the visuals are unusually rubbish for Snyder. Like he's never been as slick as he thinks, but he's always been stylish and clear with the action, and could handle big spectacle. It's just a muddy confusing mess here for the most of it.


    It's annoying coz there's a few neat storytelling instincts but Snyder just is not good enough to carry them through.

    I'd been reading The Principle of Moments, by Esmie Jikiemi-Pearson, a recent debut I'd had high hopes for. Time travelling space opera crossing far future with Georgian London, epic prophecies and all sorts. It's certainly fun enough and I'd recommend anyone to whom it sounds interesting to check it out, but something about it hasn't quite clicked with me. Not sure what, I'm enjoying all the individual pieces but, about halfway in, I'm not finding myself rushing back to read it each time.

    So I've put it aside temporarily because of the release of Max Gladstone's latest, Wicked Problems. It's the second in the Craft War trilogy and the eighth in the overall Craft sequence, and frankly it's a liberty that more of y'all haven't picked this series up yet, it's so good. Some of the most inventive, engaging high-magic fantasy out there, combining epic awesomeness with a knowingly silly side and some frankly fantastic writing. Just really one of the best series going right now. Good start to this one- the Craft War being basically trilogy working as a culmination of what had been set up in the more standalone first six books (well, first five- you could almost read them in any order and indeed they're not told chronologically, but the sixth is really where the five stories came together and brought the threads that set up this).

    Anyway, great stuff.
