I mean, SAVE YOURSELVES! comes out and explicitly admits it: the hero and heroine of this alien invasion movie have no skills. They are millennials fighting a skirmish with giant tribbles, and apparently losing. I’m not gonna lie, that amuses me.
The movie’s probably dumb, but the trailer makes it past the first checkpoint.
Maybe because TAR is going to be a drive-in special (we’re getting those back, maybe?) next month before it gets released to video. This feels like a good drive-in flick, honestly. I encourage more Halloween specials.
The new DUNE doesn’t look… bad? I mean, you got Emo Paul Atreides there, but what the hell. I can kind of buy that kid being the sort to start a galactic jihad*.
And Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho’s a real good casting call. So is Dave Bautista as Rabban. The others didn’t jump out at me right away. Dunno if they really should cram the whole thing into one movie, though…
*And won’t that be an interesting topic for the movie to cover.
Arriving on Friday, November 20, Amblin Television and Warner Bros. Animation are bringing back the cartoon siblings for 13 episodes. Additionally, Pinky and the Brain will also be a part of the new Animaniacs series.
Mostly because I have no hopes or clues about how this gets resolved. The new Animaniacs could be fantastic! Or awful! We have no way of knowing ahead of time. It’s like playing a game of Russian Roulette where you don’t know how many bullets are in the gun*.
Guess we’ll find out November 20th! On Hulu!
*Surely I am not the first person to make that rather alarming analogy.
Apparently, NO TIME TO DIE is Daniel Craig’s last Bond movie. I kind of got out of the habit of watching these. I’m not sure why: I liked CASINO ROYALE and SKYFALL. Just ran out of free time, I guess. Anyway, out in theaters in November, not that it matters for me right now…
I have no sympathy for any human shown in JURASSIC WORLD: CAMP CRETACEOUS. To hell with them. That universe has had quite enough warnings to stop making dinosaurs and putting them in theme parks. If they choose to ignore them, then let the dinosaurs consume the world. If that’s what it takes, then that’s what it takes.
