It's like everyone involved in the production saw Paddington, thought, "Holy shit, we need to get in on this" and then just picked the first "British kids' story with talking animals" they could find. It's a wonder we've been spared a comedic take on Watership Down.

(For what it's worth, Paddington was better than I thought it would be, but I was still not the hugest fan of it.)

This looks like a lackluster addition to the otherwise sterling Hop cinematic universe.

I dunno about the story, but the creature animation is well done.

Pacific Rim Uprising



It looks better than I expected. I'm still a bit worried because the director has only done TV before.

Looks even MORE like a mecha OAV than the original (and of course there's mecha-to-mecha combat now ) but the bit when that one jaeger nonchalantly combined the swords, Voltron-style, made me cackle with glee.

No idea what Annihilation is about but I'm interested. Reminded me of The Last of Us but that could just be the bizarre flora imagery.

I'm hoping this turns out well, as I really liked the novella and had been hoping to see a good adaptation. Of course, my dream directors for this would have been the Coen Bros., but I'll take what I can get.
