I'm glad that dumb Spider-Man movie is only doing half as well as Aquaman.

Likely cost half (or less) of what Aquaman did too.

We went to see Replicas, which didn't even make the Top 10. It wasn't bad for kind of a direct-to-video Sci Fi thriller. It didn't have really anything in the way of twists and turns, so that was a little disappointing.

It wasn't a long film so it killed a Saturday afternoon. We had a good time.

Next weekend we are all going to see Glass. My Sister and my Dad are going to watch Unbreakable on Friday night. My daughter hasn't seen Split yet, so I think we will watch that on Friday and see Glass on Saturday.

Glass has a tremendous amount of potential. It looks good. Hope it actually is!

We also saw Replicas. Despite a few cringe and ridiculous moments, it managed to keep us interested until the end. Felt like a late 90's movie to me.


Tonight I saw a double feature of The Death of Superman and Reign of the Supermen. I already own TDOS since it came out last year, and it is quite good, but it was cool to see it on the big screen. It was also cool to see part 2 a couple weeks before it comes out on VOD. Reign changes a lot from the comic series, but keeps the basic premise of the 4 alternate Supermen intact. I always love seeing Cyborg Superman and The Eradicator with his sweet sunglasses kicking ass. It's a good time, I especially recommend watching them back to back if able.

Are they as good as their Dark Knight Returns adaptation? It's easily amongst the best of their animated efforts over the past few years.

I had such a hard time getting into Split. Lots of people loved it but for me it was a real grind to get into. On the other hand I loved Unbreakable. So I am a little worried about Glass (but only a little).

I will probably go watch it Saturday morning or something.

I think Kevin Hart is laughing at the Oscar Committee all the way to the bank since they asked him to apologize for some jokes he told a long time ago if he wanted to host the show and he told them "Nope" and they thought they could bully him into it. Thing is he already said he was sorry for them years ago so they wanted him to apologize AGAIN.

I guess the disabled lobby also got butt hurt about the movie because they didn't get a real quadriplegic to play the role. Sheesh, you can't make anyone happy these days in Hollywood but they keep trying to stay woke and tell you how woke they are and how woke YOU should be. Until they aren't.

In the meantime I am glad Aquaman keeps taking in the money and Spider-Verse is bringing in bank. It had a $90m production budget, so $150m after marketing (considering it didn't have a big marketing campaign) and it is looking like it may sit with some of the biggest animated hits as far as Box Office gross goes.

A Dog's Way Home didn't interest me as much as a similar movie I saw that I thought was going to release called "A Dog's Purpose" which came out LAST year in January. It looks like a regular Marley and Me tear jerker staring Josh Gad and Dennis Quaid.

Mary Poppins, IDGAF. Still not a fan of Emily Blunt. And I hate Disney whoring out their old IPs and modernizing them or making them Real Life versions. It feels so slimy. Maybe I'd feel different if I had kids or if they weren't using them to, in some cases, push the modern Social Agenda (for example: the gay guy (speaking of Josh Gad) in the live action Beauty and the Beast).

Bumblebee must continue to crash, and crash hard. The Transformers must die so Michael Bay is called in to resurrect the franchise as director and do a treatment only Michael Bay can do. I mean the director and writer were not great matches for a Transformer movie AT ALL. They know nothing about explosions, for one, how could they follow up any Michael Bay entry in that franchise? One did animation (granted the great Kubo and the Two Strings) and the other's claim to fame is some unknown thriller.

Yeah...this was a bit much. I have to wonder just how many paraplegic and quadriplegic actors are out there and active. I'm sure they're out there...but you'd also be drawing from a pretty friggin' limited pool. No one seemed to care about a fully able-bodied actor being cast in the original movie from eight years ago (which also happened to be the fourth highest-grossing French film in the US since 1980)...but it's suddenly a big deal because they cast Bryan Cranston?

Kevin Hart was brilliant casting for that movie, since he can stand next to a guy in a wheelchair and barely be taller. Great for easy camera work and framing.

Split was a bit of a slow burn, but I like it well enough and it held up well to repeat viewings.

It's just a huge bonus that it turned out to be the origin story for The Beast.

I actually went and saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse this past weekend. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it, but thought that it ended way too quickly. It was a 2 hour film, but it felt like an hour and 45 minutes of it was spent building up and the end happened way too quickly.

Still definitely enjoyed it, though. I'll throw more money at it to get it on Blu-Ray and see it again.
