Jurassic World Dominion.  Big surprise since the last 4 were increasingly awful.   IMAX projector broke down 15 minutes in and I felt a sigh of relief it was so bad.   Pirates of the Caribbean might have had a better success rate as a franchise

Leprechaun origins (2021)
Just stay the fuck away from this. Absolute bottom of the barrel dogshit not associated with the leprechaun series in any way.

Top Gun Maverick was a pretty dry, joyless affair. The stunts are cool but the entire thing felt like a nostalgia piece from a better time in America. Jennifer Connelly 10/10 smokeshow though.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Was gonna watch dune last night but went with Old (the new M. Night Shyamalan movie) instead for whatever reason. Big mistake, it was terrible
[close]

honestly, that movie was so bad I almost enjoyed watching it just thinkin how they probably never say "no" to Shyamalan and his shitty ideas lol. I remember all the characters just talking about their jobs. from what I gathered it's just a movie about exploring different careers

OLD wasn't great but I will say, what's crazy about M. Night is that after The Visitor (a blumhouse micro-budget horror film that was meh) he self-finances his entire productions.  Dollar for dollar.  So any profit made at the box office/rentals/streaming he gets a FAT percentage.  Like 85%. And then uses the profit to make his next film. Kind of a cool thing but the problem is there's no one to tell him "No." or "what if we changed...."

Last night in Soho
Didn't really do it for me. I guess it's kinda a homage to Giallo films which is cool in theory but everything digital/CGI looks chat. Any unique camera work or effects become kinda meh. Story takes a while to get into then the ends sorta lacking. Main actors voice is tuf too but that's a personal opinion

Not a new movie by any means, but accidentally started watching The Fog because my stoned ass thought it was Stephen King's The Mist. Absolutely horrible movie. Felt like someone's high school film project with an overly-inflated budget.
Can never stay away for too long.

I don’t doubt part of that is true, but he also has to find a distributor (Universal for Old) who invests costs in Prints and Advertising, etc which is more expensive than you’d think.

The situation you describe is more akin to Star Wars ep 1-3

Im just watching the last Matrix movie now. Im 32, so the original trilogy was popping when I was a teen, so it made a huge impact on me and all my school buddies. Part of why I love science fiction now so much.

Anyway, this one fucking sucks. I like Keanu, he is cool as fuck in this, but what a waste of time. I have an hour left, and just cant keep watching to save my life, I keep checking SLAP instead..
