Movie Time 2.0: TT mini reviews

I watched The Menu on HBO which I recommend going into without reading anything about it*. I'm not sure if I 100% am down with what it was selling, but I had a good time with it and only regret I didn't watch it with a group of likeminded friends.

*Within reason. Context under the spoiler, no plot details: It is a horror movie. I did not know this going into it, and that's good for me, probably won't be for everyone.

It was a good movie. Definitely recommend going in as blind as possible. Also don't really buy what it was selling. I understand and accept most of the film's premise. I don't buy the staff all blindly following the head chef into such a dumb plan.
I do think the social commentary works against the main thrust of the film at points. The skewering of celebrity culture is spot-on, but the class-consciousness aspect isn't always compatible with the film tending to emulate (intentionally, I think) a fever dream.

I also did not realize, until my brother informed me days later, that Nicholas Hoult also played this dude:

Dredd IS great. A classic in the "guy fights his way up a tower" genre.

I also watched AmbuLAnce on Amazon Prime, owing to a video Patrick H Willems put out, and wouldn't you know, I loved it. I have been dismissing Michael Bay movies out of hand since the whole Transformers thing, but this is a really good action movie that constantly ratchets up the suspense. Great casting and acting, especially from Jake Gyllenhaal, operating comfortably within his Nicolas Cage register.

Cant say I particularly enjoyed M3gan, I was expecting, and desiring, something like Child’s Play, and instead got Ex Machina

There was also just the one TikTok murder dance, which was the only thing I knew about the movie besides “murder doll” going in

It's exactly like the Child's Play remake however. I liked both! And Ex Machina!
 
M3gan was better than I expected and I expected it to be a lot of fun. Goofy-ass movie with like three perfect musical moments. I hope the sequel focuses on the fact that Allison Williams should really be in a lot of legal trouble after all that...

I saw Missing a few nights and it was very good. It is also preposterous. The Jasmin Savoy Brown cameo was funnier to me than anything in M3gan.

Also liked Ambulance when I saw it in theaters!
