  1. I thought maybe I'd read the spoilers for this and get excited, but they all just sound meh. I think I just don't care that much after EG.
  2. It was good. Still felt unnecessary. But, it was beautifully done, and quite entertaining. Just not really sure I get why this particular story just so HAD to be told. I don’t know, I don’t want to criticize a good movie because they are few and far between, but it still just didn’t quite hit me the way 3 did. Bit of an afterthought feel to it. Forky was great. Wish the original gang was together more.
  3. I liked TLJ as an individual movie. I didn't think it worked particularly well as a franchise movie. Kind of reminded me of how I feel about Alien 3. Good monster movie on its own, but a franchise killer. TLJ felt the same disconnect from the rest of the franchise. As a standalone, it was beautiful, there were some good character moments, an interesting story, etc. Not perfect, but I liked it. But, as the second part of a major franchise trilogy, all those things built up in TFA had little to no payoff (though, this can be rectified/retconned in TRoS), and the new things and characters introduced were not particularly interesting or connected to the primary story. I know SW has never been cohesively planned the way the MCU is, but it still felt disconnected in a way that I am surprised the powers that be missed. I still enjoyed TLJ. There are some great moments. It is beautifully shot in places. I loved seeing Mark again as Luke. But, I walked out sort of deflated by it all, whereas I left TFA with such incredible excitement for what was to come. I just wish a little more thought had gone into making these three movies work together instead of fighting to fit together as a singular story arc.
  4. Saw EG for probably the final time in theaters yesterday. There were around 30 people at our 3pm showing. It was such an interesting mix! Dads with kids. Me with 5 teenage girls. A single woman in her 60's. A couple of guys in their 30's. Some older teen boys. A mom, dad and their two young kids. Two older guys in probably their late 50s, one wearing a Cap shirt. It just seemed like such an interesting real life representation of why the movie was so huge. The Aladdin theater was super packed, though interestingly, the teen girls with me who had seen it declared it "just okay". On the other hand, they were all super excited for Frozen II, since they were at exactly the right age when the first one came out. It's like their first experience of nostalgia. I had two people somewhat randomly tell me that MIB:I was terrible. Like it was so bad, they felt the need to volunteer the information, lol. Poor Hems.
  5. Trust me, as a mom, let me assure you that to appeal to young girls, this just needs some minor association with Frozen, lol.
  6. Yeah, honestly, that's the sad part to me. X-Men went from "Must see opening day" to an "I'll catch it on Vudu. Maybe," in a pretty short amount of time. I like Sophie Turner, I live the universe, I like the characters, but they really derailed the momentum and goodwill with XA. I look at this and just don't feel like running out and spending a bunch of money to see it. I don't hate it or wish it tanks or anything, but it is more that it is a non-event, which is sad.
  7. My brother took his son last night. He said it was pretty awful and my nephew just said he liked the animated version a lot better. So, I guess that leaves me thinking I should just watch the original and save my money.
  8. I liked Cinderella and TJB remakes, so I'm not totally against them, but I do wish Disney would take the foot off the gas a bit and let the idea of them breathe. One a year, maybe.
  9. Three hours (with getting to the theater, parking, getting in, getting snacks, previews, then getting home), it’s like a 4.5 hour commitment for me, so that does limit how many times we can go. School nights are out. We did see it again today in a surprisingly full IMAX. Storm blew the power out and delayed the start, but I’m glad we got to see it again. I’d like one more viewing, but again, the time commitment just makes it a bit tricky.
  10. I haven't seen part 3, but I feel like it will end up for me the same as Parts 1 and 2...movies that I know are Not Good, but are also Ridiculously Entertaining. Everyone saying it isn't like F&F or MI makes me have hope though, since I detest those.
  11. I thought it was great, particularly the first part with Beverly and the old woman. I remember that being super creepy from the books, like a take on Gretel and the witch or something from one of those old-school Grimm tales. Had a nice vibe. Very excited for this.
  12. Yeah, honestly. Longshot could win the Oscar, and I still wouldn't see it. I don't even hate the guy or think he's awful or anything, I'm just done with him. Whatever likability quotient he had going for him has long expired, and now, he's just annoying. There's something really off-putting about his perpetual manchild schtick for me. Anyway, yeah, I'm just not interested at all in anything he has to offer, even if it is the best thing ever, I'd rather stay home. Still want to see Endgame again, but couldn't make it this weekend. I actually know a good number of people who haven't seen it yet and want to. Hopefully, it will continue to have good legs. It's very rewatchable.
