As a big Jon Bernthal fan, whose used to his blink and miss it roles in a lot of films, I’m happy to report he’s got a nice meaty part in this one.
Why in these movies is there always a character who picks the worst possible moment to confront the “untrustworthy” possibly bad character (usually quietly with no one else around) and threatens to expose them the minute they get through this?
And I’m just thinking does it ever work out for those characters? Can’t they just keep their mouths shut until they you know, get through it?
I talked earlier this year about my love for The Ninth Rain the first book in a fantasy series by Jen Williams (as well as my trouble getting my hands on the other two) well done, done and happy to report it’s a 5 Star Series all the way through!
I would not have expected 90 minutes about a woman stuck in a cryogenic pod and fast running out of air to be the first new movie to hold my attention throughout for a while.
But here we are.
FYI if you are very claustrophobic I’d tread lightly. I am myself but it never bothers me in films and I wasn’t bothered here.
You ever have those movies where you remember loving them but don’t watch them for ages so you forget a lot of the details and it’s like watching them all over again?
And no matter how many times that happens you still always love them…
About A Boy was always one of those movies for me. I watched it again and it still is plus it holds up.
I learned two things in the Venom Let There Be Carnage Trailer. Venom is apparently a morning person and Eddie is never getting his security deposit back.
Also Tom Hardy and Venom on a Monday morning is a nice pick me up.
So I’ve been back to some heavy reading but every time I think about writing a review it’s like…
Me: I should write about this book. I have lots of thoughts.
(Five hours later.)
Me: Apparently not so many or coherent thoughts.
So I thought I’d just throw a few mini-reviews together and rank some of my recent reads!
Marvel released a sizzle reel kind of trailer for phase 4 (and a celebration of movies) yesterday and while it all looks good I have some questions about recent news and just musings on the future of Marvel. I’ve narrowed it down to 5 major questions.
This post obviously talks about the trailer but also some casting news. All public so no spoilers unless you’re avoiding everything completely.
I have to start paying more attention to Sony Animation because they have been on top of things recently. Because while I’m no animation expert I really enjoyed the styles throughout The Mitchell’s vs the Machines.
It was as fun to watch for that as anything else.
If the unnamed HBO abomination taught me anything it’s that I am a character person at least with the stories I connect whole heartedly to so for me a great adaptation has to get the character right.
Not the look of the character either because everyone will see that differently but the spirit and oh my gosh Shadow and Bone did such a good job with that. It was beautiful.
The damned show even made me like Mal.
