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?
Like me, Honest Trailers loves Firefly. Also like me, it admits that not having multiple seasons of it does nothing to diminish its nerd mystique. Bizarrely, the Netflix model of two-and-out might have threaded that particular needle…
Not gonna lie: I was wondering whether Honest Trailers was scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one. But if they did, the barrel had been incompetently emptied earlier, because ‘Every Streaming Service’ is funny. Sometimes brutally so.
…The Snyder Cut and all the DC stuff might get me to try out HBO Max. I’ll admit it, I’m not proud.
In some ways, this Honest Trailer for the new MULAN is more cutting than something I would have written. I’m just so plain pissed off about this flick that I would have spent the time yelling about slave factory camps, and said nothing about everything else that’s apparently wrong with this film. Honest Trailers was more comprehensive in its dissection.
I went to see BATMAN: MASK OF THE PHANTASM in theaters! It was great fun. I didn’t realize that it didn’t do well at the box office, though, which is a shame.
The writing’s suffered a little in these lately, but this Honest Trailer is still pretty good. THE LAST AIRBENDER is currently on the rotation again: we’re about at the end of Season 1. Lots of fun and your ‘kids’ will love it. Note that this is for the TV show!
