    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

    Took the time to watch the bonus material for this, and then rewatched the film. If my first viewing of this overwhelmed my eyeballs, the familiarity this time allowed me to soak in the details and how much care went into the character designs/animation styles for the different spider-people.

    I hear the folks who say that this movie doesn’t quite stand on its own, narratively. It felt at times like an overstuffed tv episode—tune in next week! It reminded me…

  • Sanctuary


    Didn’t quite work for me, and I feel like it’s because of the script going awry in the middle, and also Qualley’s performance—not sure who could pull off her role, but it’s not her.

    Watched this with our kids and even though we told them in advance that Colonel Brandon is played by Alan Rickman aka Severus Snape they still screamed when he said his first lines.

    Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

    Got this on 4K UHD disc, so had to give it another spin. I really like how this film looks, relative to Fallout and Dead Reckoning.

    More and more I feel like Ilsa should have been a one-film character—McQuarrie and Cruise seem to have been at a loss for what do do with her character after this dynamite introduction. I guess we’ll always have Vienna/Morocco/London.
