All one needs in life are Tubi and Plex. And, if you're daring, Hoopla and Kanopy.
An absolute banger of an action flick; a great spoof with fun characters, badass action, nice and lighthearted themes, and to top it all off, it's well-directed (It's McTiernan though, so of course it is). Last Action is almost depressingly meta because of how bad action movies have gotten in the 25+ years since this was released. I miss actors like Schwarzenegger! I miss action sequences that had weight to them! It was cool how this movie actually took its idea further than to be expected in a "dumb action film," and it went in directions that I wasn't expecting.
Day TWO of watching Morbius every day in February.
It still sucks. Morbius holds both the first and second place spot in the "Top Ten Movies With The Worst Post Credits Scene" list. I want my "Agents Simon and Alberto" spin-off film. I want a "Martine the Vampire" film. Anything over this. They made vampires lame. What the fuck. How many days are left? 26? I'll be dead by day five.
Day ONE of watching Morbius every day in February.
Yes, this was bad. Every plotline is dull and the relationships are half-baked; Morbius's relationships with Martine and Milo; Milo's character arc; the detective storyline. Really, the only thing I liked about this was Tyrese and Al Madrigal's characters. Morbius has some cool powers, but they're not utilized properly and it ends up so bland. The real crime of Morbius is taking the cool concept of vampires and turning it into standard superhero-fare.
Felt like a crazy dream for its entire runtime. I mildly enjoyed this, and there are definitely aspects that I'm gonna remember-- Divine's fantastic and world-class performance being on them-- but I never quite loved it. The only high I experienced was when I realized that The Avalanches sampled a line of dialogue and used it in "Frontier Psychiatrist." There's a great world here and John Water is very confident in what he's presenting.
