It’s… a little unfair.
It’s good! Check it out. Although, a confession: I only watched the first episode. Look, I can watch more TV, or I can write more. Which should I go with?
I’m not exactly sure why. Apparently THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION made the top of some list? Anyway: it’s a good movie and Honest Trailers didn’t feel the urge to rip it apart too much. I’m disappointed they didn’t bring in Morgan Freeman to do the narration, but you know what they say: when you start out, nobody knows to pay you your worth – but when you’ve proved your worth, nobody can afford to pay it. :chuckle: I guess that’s just the way it is, in this busy world of ours…
I liked TENET more than Honest Trailers did. Which is to say, I liked TENET. But even I will admit that I’ll have to watch it a couple more times with subtitles on before I can figure out what the hell was going on in that film.
So why did I like it? Because it was trying to say something, and I react well to that sort of thing when it’s coupled with this level of SFX magic. Besides, I saw it in the theater. I miss theaters.
…They were not fans.
Good. Bad. I’m the guy with the gun.
Show reviewing is a complicated profession.
Dang, now I want to binge-watch the entire series again before the premiere the THE MANDALORIAN Season 2. But I got stuff to do this week. So maybe just the first episode…
I should watch US at some point.
The end of the Honest Trailer is a little unfair, though. No horror movie makes sense when you think about it about it too hard. Alien? Put everybody in space suits and depressurize the ship. Halloween? Michael Myers would have had no idea how to drive a damn car. The Birds? Within half a day the Army would have broken out the flamethrowers. And so on, and so on.
And do we care? Nah, not really. They’re horror movies, not attempts at realism. So don’t think too much about the rabbits, OK?
Truth be told, I never got into SCREAM. If for no other reason than the plot got resolved pretty quickly when firearms appeared, and I dunno if there was any reason for guns not to show up earlier. I know, I know: then why have a film? But there wasn’t even any, you know, undead or anything. At least have a Kevlar vest, hey?
