Curious to see if this new medium of "cinema" will take off
Jakey boy delivering the goods. I didn't mind this, it starts off like a Tony Scott/Denzel Washington joint from the 2000s and then quite purposefully and masterfully spins into something else entirely.
I also love these locked room thrillers. They're fast paced with a tight runtime and I think force the writing, especially the dialogue, to do so much more. Good stuff.
Three and a half stars
Better than I expected. I missed this at the cinema thanks to some marvel fatigue but was surprised by how much I was on board for it even with its bloated run time.
It did what all fantasy stories should so, amaze and offer some fairly solid wish fulfilment, while also managing to repeat the trick of the first one in creating an interesting and unique hidden society.
The design and sound were also great and anyone not currently trying to put Winston Duke in their movie is an idiot.
Three and a half stars.
Perfect plane movie. I watched this on flight 3 of 3 as part of a total 26 hour commute and it came in at just the right time. Had a real d-bag sitting next to me but I barely even noticed because I wasn't really there, I was on Pandora remembering why the world got blue fever all those years ago. Four stars
Holy fuck. The animation in this is off the chains! Wild to think it stemmed from the first Shrek which now looks like pale dogshit compared to this.
Story wise it was pretty great also, imaginative and fun and full of magic, and remembers to have a proper character arc. Surprisingly good. Three and a half stars
