    Shenyongo's Movie Quickies:
    Interview with the Vampire

    I was feeling kind of lonely at the moment.
    While watching this movie, I felt all the more lonely.
    This movie struck a cord with me in some form or another.
    I really love it when vampire movie explore the utter loneliness of an immortal life, wandering the world, unable to grow old or die.
    The lingering empty feeling when loved ones pass away.
    And the lingering empty feeling that would come with the life of a vampire.

    Shenyongo's Movie Reviews:
    HALLOWEEN (2018)
    The direct sequel to Halloween (1978) - simply titled Halloween.

    Was ok I guess - just not all that scary.
    Was well-made on a technical level - but was kind of shallow overall.
    Was more tolerable than Halloween 4 and 5 - but that isn't saying much.

    Everyone's Hero


    BATTER UP!

    Thin plot that is boring, cliche, and feels like it was designed with a checklist of what beats to hit rather than from a creative vision.
    STRIKE ONE!

    The animation looks generic, cheap, and bland.
    STRIKE TWO!

    Characters are either hilariously cliched, one-note, bland (in a "perfect goody two shoes vs the evil bad guy" way), and/or just flat out annoying + unfunny.
    STRIKE THREE!

    YOU'RE OUT!!

    Logan

    ★★★★½

    A bittersweet send off for Hugh Jackman's long role as Wolverine that infuses the western genre with the superhero genre into a film that arguably rivals The Dark Knight as one of the Best Superhero Films of all time.
