Across the spider verse

After the first 20 minutes "They should make a Spider-Gwen spin off" (they are!)
After the next 20 minutes "This is great , they should also be making more of these with Miles" (they sorta are but in reality is the other 1/2 of this one)

Loved it but its going to be a long wait for the next part.

Just watched the new Ninja Turtle film.

Really loved the quirky art style. Passed the 6 laugh test.

There was humour in there for both kids and adults. Really really funny.

The Blackening is a very entertaining way to spend 90 mins or so.

Fast X was complete and utter bollocks, even by their low standards. More importantly, it failed to be entertaining so we stopped watching after an hour.

Mali is correct. Zoidberg is incorrect.

Watched two food based films back to back on Friday, The Menu & The Platform. Enjoyed both.

Also rewatched Mad Max: Fury Road and enjoyed that again too, was there ever a follow up mentioned?

Oh and I tried to watch Dune but my family forcefully rejected it. I’ll finish watching that on my own as I liked what I’d seen.

I don't think there's a "follow-up" to Fury Road in the works, but there is a prequel movie centred around Furiosa (called, funnily enough, Furiosa) with Anya Taylor-Joy taking over from Charlize Theron.

The Platform is superb.

I watched Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.

Look, imma say this first: it was an entertaining and fun film. It feels like an Indiana Jones film. I thought it was alright, even. But after I’d finished watching it, when I thought about it, I liked it significantly less. Fewer.

Anyway, I’ll say this an’ all: it looked expensive. Like 90% of the 300 million dollar budget had been spent on VFX. But when you’ve got a film based on a beloved trilogy you probably don’t want your film looking like every scene is filmed on a green screen and your face filled with particle effects. It really needed to look more grounded than it does during every action sequence. It’s a fun ride but it doesn’t compare to the practical effects of the originals when it’s so obvious that no one is actually in the scene being rendered by the power of a million computers. Sometimes less is more. Fewer.

There’s one egregious bit that just stuck with me and it’s a fake Indy hopping over trains in the distance. It was so shit. It’s only a couple of seconds, but still. And just other stuff like this diving sequence… oh man, it’s so terrible in retrospect with zero atmosphere. All these computer generated eels some out of nowhere and fill the scene like so many ‘end of a marvel film’ enemies. God, I just wanted them to put just a couple of eels in and make the scene more scary. Scarier.

So yeah, it’s pretty decent for a big budget film that unfortunately falls into the same traps as every single other big budget film these days with the new modern clichés.

I also watched Strays.

I love dogs. I FUCKING LOVE THEM. Ok, well, I love my dog. But this film about dogs made me so angry. Basically it’s Sausage Party but with talking dogs.

And what’s with “adult comedy” just saying “fuck” in every sentence as being the joke? I was fuming how shit it was. If you’ve watched the trailer - you’ve literally seen all the decent jokes. I imagine lots of this was improvised with Will sodding Ferrell doing his usual schtick, which, frankly, has got real stale recently.

Trailer: https://youtu.be/26Xq6_g2r6Q?si=OfsbJdy3Y4Bv-6Y9

Gotta say though, the CG for the dogs talking and stuff is really great though, especially since dog faces are so hairy.

You might get more mileage with it then me, but I was a bit bored by it.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is GREAT!

Proper great. I had a really great time watching this. It’s propah funny, looks AMAZING (kinda like CG plasticine, stop motion and a comic book), the characters are all great, Ice Cube is TERRIFIC, the story belts along at a nice pace, Jackie Chan is ALSO ACE, and I don’t think I can say a bad word about it.

I might have enjoyed this more than Spider-Man to be honest. No, hang on, maybe slightly less.

Go. See. It.
