    ★★½

    A disappointment overall. I picked this one up not knowing much about it. I really really enjoyed the first act, second act I was on board, but the third act I fell off and really lost my enthusiasm for it.

    The cast is mostly good. I really liked Devon Sawa. I didn’t care for Nick Stahl. Camille Sullivan and Summer H. Howell are the real leads but are unfortunately let down by a script that thinks it’s being clever when…

    Outpost is cool. I don’t have a strong desire to check out the sequels, but this one alone stands as a solid horror film from the 2000’s.

    I got really drunk right before I watched this and I had a good time with it. I’m seeing these angry, scathing reviews and I’m not sure what other people were expecting. 

    All I wanted was to see LeBron James play basketball with the Toons, and dammit, that’s what happened.

    Was there stupid stuff? Sure. But Wiley E. Coyote pulled some real shit on that court. Things got dirty and I loved it. 

    I’d really love to see Space Jam 3 pit the Toons against Reggie Miller in some street ball action.
