long reviews, peak taste, and a film major
the far right favorite film slot is recency bias at its max, so it may be changing.
The Incredibles 2004
Another double feature, weird timing, but I’m on a roll now. I’ve always confused Brad Bird with Bryan Singer, don’t know why, not very similar filmography’s.
Early Pixar stuff was full of rich worlds and characters, and the way they were edited and rendered with style is dearly missed. Being the first of its kind, the animation definitely holds up for the most part, although it did take some time to get used to it, it ended up feeling much more…
The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement 2004
Part two of my double feature at the El Capitan, and just like the first one, the reactions and experience made this even more enjoyable than I imagined it to be.
Something about sitting in the theater just made it fun, and I don’t think I’ll ever not enjoy it if I decide to rewatch, just a solid expansion on the original unironically.
Chris Pine was a surprise for me, and when he showed up everyone wooed, just a beautiful moment fr. Cant wait for the next one here, just great vibes and fun movies, straight no judgement.
This theater is a weird paradox on Hollywood Blvd.
John Wick: Chapter 4 2023
Now being four films deep in this seemingly out of nowhere franchise, does it stick the landing?
Yes. Very much so.
While the character of John Wick has what feels like little to no dialogue in this installment, his actions speak louder than words, and his actions speak shotgun with exploding rounds.
Keanu Reeves, as I’ve said in my last review, is a godsend to this franchise, bringing a sense of calm to a man with no mercy. How can…
The Matrix Resurrections 2021
Horrible writing can make a film bad, but this, this is beyond that. The editing was horrendous, the acting was mediocre, even Keanu looked bored. This movie had no redeeming qualities and Lana Watchowski failed to capture what made The Matrix so great. The action sequences were terrible and nothing made sense. This movie is so chaotic, so messy, and so meta it hurt to watch. This felt like a parody, and it sucked.
