Ya know what? I’ll say it, that Slaughter Race song deserves a nom for best original song.
Yeah this movie is fucking ridiculous. Like it’s trying aggressively hard to be relatable and hip, more than anything I’ve seen before. And honestly sometimes it succeeds and it’s pretty silly (I feel like a lame dad for laughing at the Ted Talk joke.) Other times are painful to sit through (basically the whole Buzztube virality thing was awful.) Also, not sure who the target audience is here. Parents are too old to get a lot of references, younger children are too young to get a good amount of references, and everyone in between is just gonna find it cringey. But whatever, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a good time. I really like these characters. Would have been an absolute cherry on top if Ralph dropped a Squarespace sponsor in the end, though.
