    Ready or Not

    This has a very good pace and Samara Weaving is slaying it, but this is so, so, SO on the nose and smug about itself. I thought the writing was not great and packed with vulgarity as a source of humour, which just isn't funny to me. It's a serviceable thriller for the most part, but lacks anything particularly memorable, even if they do go a bit crazy with the ending.

    But I don't really care about these characters, the message is simple, not really offering much to think about and otherwise it's a simple contained thriller with a few twists to keep itself entertaining.

    Really annoying but also extremely not for me so I can't really say anything too bad about it. Andrew Garfield is really good in this, I think I'll watch anything with him in it at this point I'm converted to the church of Garfield.

    Some of the songs are good, I like the general heartfelt sentiment, but yeah, this is theatre kid shit and I am not a theatre kid sadly. I kept thinking this could've done with more visual flair, there's only really a few novel scenes. But otherwise this flows well and is solid. It's just kinda annoying to me. Oh well!

    "What the heck is happening?" asks protagonist Shinji Ikari late into this movie's runtime. Good fucking question. This third entry in the proposed "rebuild" of Neon Genesis Evangelion boldly diverges from the original plotline pretty much entirely, but brings in heaps of frustrating elements along with it.

    I wrote out a review for this film yesterday afternoon, but decided to sit on it for a little while. Perhaps for better or worse I came to the realisation this morning that…

    I do like this film's ambitions to be a smart blockbuster, but it ends up feeling like a watered down version of a greater ideal (in this case: the graphic novel it is based on).

    I don't have too much good to specifically say about this film, but overall it does function as a decent blockbuster. It has its exciting moments and the core plot is interesting and mostly engaging. There's a few decent mindless action scenes as well. Hugo…
