#247, or #506 since I started counting, leaving now to go see 2020's "Druk," which in English is called "Another Round."
It's a movie about excessive alcohol consumption, which I don't typically care for, and I probably wouldn't just put it on at home without a reason? But if it's playing at the cinema...
If I recall correctly I described the first one as "a truly unhinged depiction of the human baby," it's #260, or #519, 2021's "The Boss Baby: Family Business."
📱 "He's All That" (2021)
the Freddie Prinze Jr character in the original was a dumb boy in the 90s doing dumb boy in the 90s shit who over the course of the picture is a pretty consistent, not-terrible dude when he's not letting worse boys drag him down with them
but the craven, desperate capitalism here -- "I want my sponsorship back," "how will I pay for college" -- corrupts totally any chance that I'll feel that way about this one 40 minutes from now
@Alexis I haven't seen the sequel, but I thought the first one was deliberately vaguely 70s-80s-ish? Based mostly on the toys. Teddy Ruxpin was the big hit ~1985, and pretty much everything else was around in my childhood (before that). Also the styling of the cars.
@kurt We know where the Boss Baby stands on the most important issue of our time: Every idiot who gets hypnotised at the end had a smartphone.
@Alexis@beepboop.one Oh nice, this is one of the few since Phase 2 I'm actively looking forward to, specifically because of the casting being so tight
@Alexis@beepboop.one It's telling when one of the most exciting things about Spider-Man: No Way Home is a character or two from a different Spider-Man film from 2004
@purplemontart Post-trailer, I'm pretty hype for "Doc Strange just passionately not giving a shiiiiiit," but that's still hype about a guy from a different picture!
@Alexis@beepboop.one I think it's different with Doctor Strange because like, sure he's been in other stuff but it's being drip fed, right, he's not been the dedicated character in a while and he's becoming like the Hulk where he's there to spice stuff up
Also I fucking loved the "That feels weird but I'll allow it" and I can't explain why, along with his fucking getup + cloak
@Alexis@beepboop.one But yeah if it were like "oh it's Iron Man he's had eighty of his own movies" but the ones that have had ONE movie, I like when they show up, there's still loads to learn since we can't really learn a lot at once
@Alexis I really wish that, when I read the words "hav[e] a bad time" that the first few notes of Megalovania didn't play in my head automatically.
💍 "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (2003)
@Alexis That's kind of how I felt about the book, too.
