If you told me Jungle Cruise was written with a screaming kindergartner nearby shouting "I'm bored!" every ten minutes, I would believe you. It starts with some basic Indiana Jones-esque action hijinks, but, before they even leave port (spoilers for anyone that does not want to be spoiled on general plot beats), the villain has acquired a submarine to fight a friggen dingy, and is launching torpedos all over the place. From there, we eventually introduce zombie conquistadors, and, because zombies are passé, they are quickly upgraded to zombie-elemental conquistadors, with at least one character that is my favorite villain trope: a sentient, collective mass of angry bees. The finale happens as it must (with the main hero literally dying and resurrecting like three times), and, if it had lasted any longer, I am pretty sure some dinosaurs would have arrived to cap things off. Four out of Five Stars.
Am I a bad person because this sounds awesome to me?
That does seem like the kind of movie that really needed the latter form of Cage. Do casting directors not specifically request that when adding him to the movie they're casting?Kind of feel like Willys Wonderland would have been better served by being a short film, as Nic Cage pulverizing his way through an entire haunted Chuck E Cheese is great in small doses but it really started dragging when watched all at once.
Also; it’s Quiet Cage and not Manic Pixie Dream Cage that showed up for this movie, which is always a let down
Didn't really know much about The Green Knight before watching it, but it's absolutely incredible. The best new film I've seen in some time. Looks amazing and just seems very carefully crafted on all fronts.
Gunpowder Milkshake was a serviceable John Wick-like from Netflix. It's a bit more cartoony (but still just as graphic), it has a good soundtrack, and all of the major characters are women -- Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino, pretty good cast.
was looking forward to it from the first pictures and trailers and it definitely delivered on what i wanted most, a satisfying and beautiful adaptation of an old folk tale with some nice surrealism landing somewhere between supernatural, symbolic, and psychological-and happily the movie's smart enough not to draw the lines between those much. there are some pretty serious changes to specific and often major aspects, as well as the integration of some stories and references which are indirectly related at best (though, in my opinion, are still included very appropriately) and the "moral" or whatever you might call it in particular feels modernized in a sense. but the theme more regards the concepts of myths, stories, and legends. and honor. which i think are spot on, and really help bring most of the elements i wouldn't necessarily be sold on easily as parts of a very direct adaptation of "sir gawain and the green knight" nicely into the work nonetheless. and there are parts of this i really like. (this is not a very specific spoiler but i'm doing it anyway) the film's aged king arthur speaks in a weighty, almost shakespearean style, while gawain's speech is casual and modern, and this contrast continues (if not to the same degree) with many other characters throughout the movie. the film presents him story-wise as a young and inexperienced man finding his place in the world, rather than the traditional consummate knight as well, so it's a really nice touch that plays up that sense.Didn't really know much about The Green Knight before watching it, but it's absolutely incredible.

I understand that Dev Patel is quite the looker, too.
I wanted to ask if anyone watched Gunpowder Milkshake? The premise is very Gaer, but the reviews said it was bad but they could just be mad it has the audacity to have women and I don’t want to subject myself as guinea pig.
Once trusted by this Council, charged with maintaining the defenses of the planet Krypton itself - the chief architect of this intended revolution, the author of this insidious plot to establish a new order among Us - with himself as absolute ruler.
On this mindless aberration whose only means of expression are wanton violence and destruction....
On the woman, URSA, whose perversions and unreasoning hatred of men have finally threatened even the male children on our planet....
It's possible that the intention was to depict Krypton as not actually being that great a place. Advanced technology, far less advanced morality. Similar to how John Byrne depicted Krypton in his Superman comic reboot (and, to some extent, in Alan Moore's "For The Man Who Has Everything").So the other night I started watching the original Superman movie because it was on a thing, and I fell asleep really early on not so much because it was boring as because my health is really scary bad right now, but before I did, I got to the part where they tease the villains from Superman 2 with this trial scene, and two things really jump out at me about that as super damn odd:
