Around the World in 80 days (2004)

The movie was rated quite negatively on the internet, but I found it to be rather enjoyable. A lot of action and moving between different parts of the world in the 1890s, and quite funny too. It differs quite a lot from the original book for comedical purposes, of course.
The Quintessential, Powerful Realm of Bluelight
A ridiculously overpowered benevolent dictatorship realm, dominant underground, on land, in air and in space. Takes up almost all existence known, is ‘perfect,’ it’s works awe-inspiring and it’s leader handsome, intelligent with god-like powers.

Rated 0/-∞, Class A, 10/10 and 0.066.

Bohemian Rhapsody.

It's truly astonishing that there are still people out there who argue about whether the Beatles or the Rolling Stones were better when neither can hold a candle to the likes of Queen or ABBA

Black Panther

I avoided watching this when it initially came out because it was so overhyped, but it was alright.

A second attempt at watching 21 grams, didn't last half an hour again, irritating bollocks.

OTOH, being a massive fan of the manga, seeing Nova at the end made me hard.

... I'm also a massive fan of Nova. The, uh, drastic changes in the film concerning him notwithstanding.

Though I do understand that for people who watch it without foreknowledge, the reaction can easily be quite different from the hype I experienced.

The Iron Giant

I don't know how I haven't heard of this movie but it was awesome! Funny bits, emotional scenes, beautiful animation, great messages. I love the robot character and the ending was so good.

Downrange, a kind of horror/thriller with a sniper targeting a group of people on a road trip. Pretty effective, well made and kind of bleak. Though I couldn't help wondering about the sniper's motivation.

I rewatched Aliens the other day. Man that movie is awesome.
Patriotic centrist American, who is right leaning. I support the Bill of Rights. I have no loyalty to any party. Expand or die. That's how humanity works. Science fiction is the best genre. The solar system is ours for the taking. I am a male. You can't spell team without "me". I support the troops.
Call me Pax. I take things literally, being a literal person.

Well, that was just wrong.

Also, just saw Roma. Pretty deserving of all its praise, I'd say. Started out kinda slow but really grabbed my attention, though the language barrier didn't help.

Bohemian Rhapsody. Tossing out a question here, do men who have sex with men not use their tongues when they kiss? Asking for a friend...

Did you find American Psycho and The House That Jack Built boring?

I find these types of movies fascinating
