I liked JUNGLE CRUISE more than Honest Trailers did, although they didn’t drip acid onto their review, or anything. I mean, it’s a big old dumb action movie and we all knew that going in. Full points for HT’s kick-in-the-groin of Disney over presumed Chinese self-censorship, mind. I hadn’t considered that, until they pointed it out.
Having had some time to digest it, I think I like LOKI the best of the Disney+ shows so far. Mostly because Tom Hiddleston loves playing this character more than any other MCU actor, with the possible exception of Chris Hemsworth. I’m definitely looking forward to the second season.
LUCA was surprisingly free of emotional torture. I mean, considering it’s a Pixar flick. I liked it, and so did Honest Trailers, apparently. You do have to wonder just how much Vespa paid for that product placement, though.
Honestly, between this and the Screen Pitch video there’s no need to watch CRUELLA itself. And that kind of bugs me a little. This could have been a fun movie about battling fashionistas in Mod London, if only they didn’t have to get stuck with the Mouse’s expectations.
Brutal, but the studios have brought it upon themselves. Also a little unfair, since I know that Honest Trailers liked AQUAMAN, WONDER WOMAN, and SHAZAM! just fine. But there’s no denying that the DCEU needs something to make it less scattershot.
You can’t quite justify MONEY PLANE! getting the Honest Trailer treatment. Nor can you, for Pitch Meeting. But damn if it doesn’t work when you lump the two together. I guess it’s the shared sense of horror*?
*Although you get the impression that they kind of liked Kelsey Grammer’s performance.
