    Back to the Future Part II

    ★★½

    I just got the trilogy on 4K for Christmas, so I decided to work my way through all three of them today. Go back for Part 1 if you missed it.


    For all that I feel about this film I can say that it is well paced and I never felt bored. I didn't hate the film, it was a fun enough time. However, it really does feel like a considerable step down from the first film. Maybe not in…

    For some reason I decided to start watching this film at like 2 AM since I couldn't sleep. I saw it was on Disney+ and I saw it had the director's commentary, so then I watched it. I have no idea why I thought watching this horrible film was a good idea at all. The main perk is that Jon Favreau was talking basically the entire time so I didn't have to see it. I took some extensive notes on…

    Film #2 of 2021 Horror: boxd.it/d4Gn8

    I totally understand what everyone sees in this movie. It just didn’t land the same way for me. The last 40 was probably my favorite, and I did really like the ending. The acting was good and Kurosawa’s movement and framing with the camera is masterful. I’d likely get more out of a rewatch.

    ★★

    I’ll update if anything changes in the last 15 minutes.

    Film feels weird. Just a soulless husk mandated by the studio only to keep a character. No passion behind the scenes. Super dark for the sake of it, and very light on interesting characters or backstory. Not even enough Spider-Man action scenes to make it super worthwhile. The villain is pretty bad, and I don’t care for the lizard all that much. Also the stuff with Gwen’s dad is just…

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    So what did I think? It was much better than I expected it to be. The film is not a masterpiece, but it isn't horrible. Let's talk about the bad first. I believe that some moments could have been removed or better edited. There are just jumps that happen, the pacing goes very fast. It isn't difficult to follow, just muddled. Those include the dream sequences, including the one with The Flash warping through time. I disliked the shortness and…
