    “Do you ever get the feeling that people are incapable of not caring?”

    Aronofsky films have become appointment viewing for me anytime one hits theaters, and a Brendan Fraser comeback is a huge bonus. What Aronofsky has done here is a picture steeped in empathy, a character study that marinates in the type of person often forgotten by society, or worse, discarded as less than human.

    It was pretty fun. 

    I feel about the same about this movie as I did the last one. It’s basically a really long genre flick with a script that falls into every trope imaginable for what it’s trying to do, yet has some really well done visuals, and in the end, is enjoyable. 


    Did it change my life? No. 


    Was it pretty fun to watch? Sure


    Did I get to see a bunch of mechs fight weird alien creature things being ridden by stretched out blue folks? You betcha

    This is so underrated. Love the style and pacing, and aged remarkably well considering the last few years.

    Still fun, but the I noticed more than every how chopped up the voice overs seem. I’d love to see Cameron’s uncut version of this, just bloated as hell. Saw a bit of the extended and felt the stuff on earth set a nice juxtaposition with the lush greenery of Pandora. Feel like this needed more of that. Still a fun popcorn movie though.

    Lived up to its very goofy potential. What fun. 



    Also, I need more of that deep Nordic Santa lore

    This emulates 80s horror so well that I thought I was watching the wrong movie up until I saw Ti West’s name blasted on screen. West is incredibly talented at slowly cranking tensions up, and this is no exception. Fun characters, big surprises and an absolutely wild finale. The one good thing to come from all the Warnke bullshit of the 80s is stories like this.

    A lot of wasted potential, but there are some fun moments overall. Kinda more of the same for found footage.
