The plot is...a young couple moves into an apartment that is so luxurious and nice that they could never afford with their average jobs.  The guy (Justice Smith, who's voice I can't stand) is a bit of a doofus, the girl (Sydney Sweeney) is way hot in a girl next door kind of way.

 

Soon after moving in, they notice their neighbors in the building across the street having sex.  The male neighbor is a photographer and he's shooting hot models all day long while his wife is away, banging them too.  It's pretty much softcore porn.  The young couple can't stop watching, pretty soon they become unhealthily obsessed.  They do some weird next level ****.  The guy has had enough when he feels that his wife has crossed a line....

 

...a line she won't come back from.  

 

Bah bah buuuuuummmmm...

 

I wanted to like this movie, I've seen it called a "throwback erotic thriller" except there's not much thrilling about it until you get to the twist at the end.  But by then it's too late. 

 

Whoever made this movie obviously wanted to have some sort of social commentary about how we're all too obsessed with each other's lives (you'll get hit over the head with it at the end of the movie, you can't avoid it) but it wasn't done in a particularly intelligent way.

 

I also didn't really care enough about the characters to be completely mind-blown by the twist at the end.  I'm giving it a B-.  It's worth a watch but it's not great.

Cinderella on Amazon Prime:

This was a surprisingly well done movie.  Whoever put together the music and the story was very creative.  They put a lot of classic pop songs from the 80's and 90's into a story of women's empowerment woven into the classic Cinderella storyline.  The acting and singing is first rate.  With whom they had singing, I expected the songs to be good, but the acting and writing was also good.  For a movie made by/for a subscription service, this was a great peace of entertainment.  That it is family friendly was a complete bonus.

Enjoyed this quite a bit. It was a fun and creepy romp through James Wan’s twisted mind that acts as sort of an homage to campy horror. Some genuinely chilling scenes with a lot of fun twists and turns along the way. The final act is ****ing bonkers even once it has showed it’s hand, it doesn’t slow down. It’s ridiculous, it’s insane, it’s hilarious. and it’s awesome. Although things end up being fairly predictable ( I’d gotten about 90% of the way there), watching it unfold was a real treat.

Sitting in theater, to watch Venom 2- Let There Be Carnage 

I’ll give it a solid B.

This one was humorous. Venom and Eddie were like buddies in this one and Venom was funny.

 

Based on the mid- credits scene; I think he goes dark again since I think he will finally be meeting someone in the next movie.

I finally got around to watching Solo:A Star Wars Story the other night.

 

It was crap.

 

I'll never forget how embarrassed and disgusted I was showing my wife Episode 9.

 

"This is stupid." Her words, not mine.

Saw Venom 2 last night. Give it around a 6.5/10. Felt kinda rushed at times and too much emphasis on the Carnage/Shriek relationship then needed to be.

 

I agree it was too fast, but fine with the relationship building.  I dont like what they did with those characters in the end though. B-

No Time To Die is out. It’s 2:43 long. Busy this weekend but plan to see it next week.

Going to see it Sunday at noon at Cine Bistro with my son. I tried to talk him into the 9PM show on Thursday but the midnight end & drive home on a work night wasn't in the cards for him (I'm retired 😁).

The Long Halloween Part 1-2 

Based on the critically acclaimed graphic novel, Batman, Jim Gordon, and DA Harvey Dent race against the calendar as it advances toward the next ill fated holiday. 
 

I’ve read the graphic novel and it is fantastic  so I was excited when I saw the long-awaited animated 2-part movie released in 2021 was available on HBO max. I am

happy to say that both parts are outstanding and it is one of the best Batman stories ever. The graphic novel was one of the inspirations Nolan used when writing The Dark Knight and it is easy to see that as the trio of Batman, Gordon, and Dent creating an alliance to take on the Gotham mob is the basis of this story. It is the definitive Harvey Dent story imo aside from The Dark Knight which again, shares a lot of the same DNA and themes from this. 
 

That Harvey Dent/mob story also coincides with the the three of them trying to track down a new killer in Gotham, one that only kills on holidays and has targeted the mob crime families for victims. That murder mystery hangs over everything and is fun to try to solve or see the characters piece it together. 
 

Another thing I like about it is that it’s a younger Batman. He’s not a great detective yet. He makes mistakes. He isn’t perfect or “because I’m Batman” yet and he even misses landing a couple jumps etc that further shows that. The story takes place over a year and you see him grow during that time. The movie works as a nice examination of Bruce/Batman and his desire to understand decisions his parents made that he is now having to deal with the consequences of while also examining Harvey Dent. Those two are juxtaposed in a similar way to how Nolan handles them in TDK. 
 

The movies change a couple things about the ending that I think are excellent decisions. Each change improves every character and makes the story more coherent, the mystery more engaging, and the motivations more satisfying. 
 

Highly recommend if you’re a fan of comic books or Batman.

Has it all. Craig solidified his spot as the best 007 for me.
