Space Jam: A New Legacy

Space Jam: A New Legacy ½

post-future neo-corporate streaming slurry, an ungainly hunk of intellectual property solely created to advertise further intellectual property, even worse than ready player one in its naked insistence upon its own existence as an overdetermined fragment of pop culture artifice. the medium is the message: it never mattered what a possible space jam 2 was going to be; the only requirement in 2021 was that it topped the original's florid commercialism and served primarily as a bleak patchwork exhibition for HBO max's streaming catalog, to be an ouroboros of stagnant and disposable 'content' consumed and then promptly consigned to the dustbins of filmic history.

welcome to the machine.
