    Morbius

    ★½

    Yikes.

    Surprisingly, Morbius had a strong start, with actors giving committed performances from a serviceable script. It felt tonally distinct, with a strong horror flair that the Venom films are missing and less over-the-top humor. Jared Leto really shines, which is a phrase I never thought I'd use. But then, the movie shifts to the same "superhero grapples with becoming one while at the same time creating his own archnemesis" story outline that we've all seen before. The difference? This…

    Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts

    ★★★½

    This was... alright. It was really emotional to see all the emotion from the cast and crew members reflecting on their time with the franchise. I especially loved hearing how each director left their mark with the actors but in this instance it would've been cool to see them *all* interact with the core trio personally. That being said, it was awesome to see Chris Columbus here. I really think the Fantastic Beasts series needs a warmer touch rather than…

  • Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III

    Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III

    ★★★★

    It's double the length of the other episodes, but some of that runtime is padded with less-than-hilarious gags. Still, overall it's great, like most Robot Chicken episodes.

    Gary the Stormtrooper really sucks at his job. I wish Disney would loosen the reins a little bit to give us an Episode IV about the sequels, though the fandom being shitty probably wouldn't love it if it did anything to legitimize the sequel trilogy either.

  • Kong: Skull Island

    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★★★

    "Is that a monkey?"

    Kong: Skull Island is 100% more entertaining than I thought the trailers suggested. Less dumb action and more shock value gory monster horror, certainly more than Godzilla. (Godzilla is the superior film, but Kong is more blockbuster-esque.) Speaking of which, the biggest narrative connections are the film's opening and (surprise!) post-credits scenes. Also, very very different from Jackson's story; if you're expecting an Odyssey-style epic adventure just rewatch the 2005 film. Longer review probably coming this…

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★½

    "Do you want anything?"
    "Equal rights?"

    Solo: A Star Wars Story? More like Snore-o: The Last Twenty Minutes Are A Star Wars Story.

    It's clear Disney had too much to lose by firing Lord and Miller so late into production, so I understand why Kathleen Kennedy hired reliable and generally good director Ron Howard at the eleventh and a half hour. But there's very little of his touch that's apparent here: the film emphasizes drama, with dark color palettes. But…
