    Got ten minutes into this and I just couldn’t. So grating and obvious. Pixar is a husk of what they used to be.

    The fact that they made two more of these after this is so sad. By no means is this perfect, but at least it felt like a solid conclusion. Oh well, too bad money exists.

    Forgot how much of this was needless plot shit, but it’s still weird as hell and an interesting time capsule for when Disney blockbusters took risks that could potentially alienate mainstream audiences. No matter how messy and dumb this is, in today’s culture there is no way Disney would make a movie where in the first five minutes people are getting their eyes pecked out by crows. Honestly, even if the movies they make today are more β€œconsistent,” I miss the days when these movies could be as wild as this.

    I remember thinking this was really silly when I saw it a long time ago but honestly it’s really frightening for the majority of it. Yeah, the ending is dumb, but so is the ending to the original!Β 

    Most alien invasion movies (besides Arrival)Β have pretty lame endings because how do you even end a story like that? Still, one of Spielberg’s most effective movies with a pretty unique and out of character performance from Tom Cruise that I really liked.

    It’s not perfect, but it’s honestly pretty underrated, and far superior to the 1950s one.

    Just beat the original Final Fantasy VII for the first time and felt like I should give this a rewatch since I’ll actually know what’s going on this time. The action is really solid and the animation holds up pretty well despite some minor quirks, but I can’t get over how pointless this story feels when you consider how the actual game ended (if you’ve played it, you’ll know what I mean).Β 

    Also, I’m 100% sure at least one of those kids peed in that flower bath at the end.

    Incredibly human and powerful, but I couldn’t get over how much Hugh Jackman’s character in this reminded me of my uncle who went to jail for a very similar crime, albeit on a much higher scale.

    This may sound like blasphemy to some, but I think a score might’ve helped me enjoy this more.
