    My 260th log of the year! Most movies watched in a year!!!

    Kicked it off with something I’ve been meaning to see for a while. It’s honestly not nearly as bad as I expected, it’s just super rough. The body horror elements are really frightening and unique. The CGI and third act are… not. The dialogue also is kind of ass, but it really flares up in the banter. The darker tone is a neat idea that just is dropped for no apparent reason. I don’t think there will ever be a good Fant4stic movie.

    “I swallowed your cum, doesn’t that mean anything?!?”

    I haven’t seen such a crystal clear example of an Americanization of a foreign film. It’s virtually the same film as its original, but the tweaks made to present this state-side make it all the worse. The prosthetics look so much worse bc they don’t actually look that bad, the VFX looks even more dated somehow, and the music/editing choices are wildly of early 2000’s America. Weird, weird movie.
