I have tons of opinions that change constantly. I watch a lot of movies and play video games.
Greed is a little known movie that came out in 2019. I'm sure the subject matter was a bit much for some but it's nevertheless true in some ways. Within the message of the movie however is a crazy fictional story that is almost as interesting as the message they are trying to convey.
The Bling Empire is a reality TV series that was just released recently in 2021. I'm not a big fan of reality TV shows except if they're for competition. Usually I can identify with competition reality shows because there's real people trying to win some sort of prize. I would kind of categorize these shows more as grand game shows rather than reality TV. This TV show is full on reality TV where it's following the lives of certain individuals. I have never gotten into anything of this sort.
Outside the Wire is one of Netflix's newest movies in 2021. This is from the company's promise that they will have a new movie for each week of 2021. There's some nice ideas in this movie but ultimately it feels more like I'm watching a video game's cutscenes all woven together.
Locked Down is one of the newest movies of 2021 to explain our 2020 experience. It's one of the few big releases from HBO Max. In a sense the antics and realities in this movie feel all too real but that's part of the problem. We're still in lockdown and we kind of don't really want to be reminded that we're in lockdown if we're trying to escape into some fantasy. Or maybe the execution of this movie was far from what I was expecting.
Kickin' It Old School came out back in 2007. It's a fun idea that could work in theory but the execution of the whole film made me a little queasy. There are a ton of wrong in this movie, namely corniness and bad acting. By today's standards this movie would require a ton of editing because there is so many social norms of today that would not allow this film from being released.
Wandavision Episodes 1 and 2 have recently come out on Disney Plus. It's a highly anticipated series since the Marvel universe has been pretty quiet for a good year now because of the pandemic. Disney you have to keep your fans happy or else you'll start to lose the hype that you guys had with End Game. There was the new Spiderman movie but that was a while ago.
Honey, I Shrunk The Kids is a family friendly movie that came out back in 1989. I remember loving this movie back in the day. Seeing it now brought back tons of nostalgia and reminded me of all the fads of the 80's. Even more surprising to me was the way that this movie was made. There was a ton of practical effects in this movie that are pretty impressive even by today's standards.
Chris Rock: Total Blackout came out as a new 2021 Netflix exclusive standup special. The thing is, it's not necessarily a new standup special. It's actually an extended version of Chris Rock: Tambourine. That special came out back in 2018. I could have swore I reviewed that special but it was probably before I came onto Vocal Media. It had a lot of insightful thoughts that are quite controversial in today's climate.
