Today's film, #2, "Promare." No idea what this one's about but the animation looks cool.
Once again I return to the downloads folder for some early-lockdown movies with "Capone." (#17!)
There was a lot of talk when this released about how this redeems Trank as a director post-"Fant4stic," and that's fair — it's well-made, and there's some great sequences in here, but at no point does he actually manage to make me *care* about this person or his family, which makes it all a bit flat.
Hardy, of course, plays a terrific disease-riddled Capone losing what little is left of his mind.
Tonight's movie, #26, is "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure." Not that the third one is actually coming out here, I don't think, so no rush and all.
@The_T It could have a very local release here in my living room as early as ten minutes from now, when it finishes downloading.
@The_T That would be odd scheduling, though, on account of me being only 40 minutes into the first one.
@jeffjk I mean, New Mutants
* is relatively competently made
* doesn't have to negotiate any extremely messy continuity
* operates on a pretty small scale
so it's almost unfair to compare it to Dark Phoenix
(but: yes, for sure.)
@Alexis I think there's a couple of bond movies that take their title from entirely different bond stories.
@kurt Yeah, this one is an original story with the title of a Fleming novel -- though apparently that's because Fleming was unhappy with the book, so included only the title in the Bond film rights.
