Did We Really Need It? —— A Quiet Place Part II movie Review
I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t enjoy this movie. However, there were times where I thought, was this worth making? The first movie was phenomenal and well worth the admission ticket. However, at the end of this movie, I walked out thinking “okay.” It’s not a bad movie at all, it’s just kind of here to continue the story for the first movie a bit. I do, however, recommend watching it on your own to get your take on it, because it seems like a movie that people will enjoy or they won’t. Maybe a third movie will be released to help improve this one, but since the writers seemed reluctant to make this one, we will just have to see.
Are You Okay Bo? —— Bo Burnham: Inside Review
Bo Burnham has always been an out-of-the-box comedian. His use of music and sketches to perform his comedy is both hilarious and insightful. He has briefly tackled man important topics such as the negative implications of performance and comedy itself, mental health, and even the idea of God. Recently Bo Burnham has released a new special, after a long hiatus, called Inside. Inside was recorded, edited, and performed all by Bo Burnham himself, and compared to his other specials, you could say it’s… different. While I did enjoy the special, there were times where I felt concerned for the comedian until I was suddenly thrust into another song or sketch. It made me question if all of it was just a joke to bring awareness to the decline of one's mental health during these trying times, or if Bo is truly struggling during the process of making the special.
Movie Genres We May Never See Again
Movies evolve and change with their audiences. So, it’s no surprise that some genres are dying out if they haven’t already. There are many reasons why a genre might not stay in the light, whether it be that people don’t care anymore or simply that everything has been done and nothing new can be done or said. While it doesn’t mean we didn’t have great movies to enjoy in each of these genres, we just may not get another movie like these in the near (or possibly different) future.
TikTok Made Me Fall In Love With VanLife
I’m sure many people have seen the beautiful posts on Pinterest and TikTok of #Vanlife. We’ve all seen the clips of someone waking up from their bed, grabbing their already made coffee, and opening the doors of their van to look out onto their view of the beach or mountainside. It’s simplistic and beautiful with just a slice of home brought with you. Of course, living that lifestyle isn’t always as amazing and easy as the posts make it seem, but I fell in love with it anyway. They inspired me to sell my car and buy a van for myself. I was incredibly fortunate to find one for sale that was already converted, and I couldn’t be happier! There are so many reasons I want to live in vanlife, and I can’t wait to get started!
Movies Can Be Good Without Being Thought Provoking
As much as people love movies that can challenge our way of thinking and sense of morality, it’s nice to watch movies that we can relax and enjoy. While it’s important we have films like The Trial Of The Chicago 7 and Judas And The Black Messiah, sometimes films like those can be overbearing to watch one after the other. People loved the reboot Godzilla movies because of one simple thing, and it’s not just because they grew up with them. It’s because we could enjoy giant monster fighting. No one really cared about a philosophical debate of humankind and whether or not they should live amongst a new kind of god. We just want Godzilla to do his iconic roar and fight other giant monsters.
Fans Can’t Bully Studios And Actors Forever
Toxic fans have always been a problem and there isn’t a simple solution to getting rid of them. After the flop of Joss Whedon’s Justice League, it was understandable that fans wanted to see the Zack Snyder cut since he was the one who was initially in charge of the project. Hash tag, #ReleaseTheSnyderCut began to trend, which no one expected it to happen or even really care if it did. However, Warner Bros decided to listen to the fans and release the Snyder Cut which turned out pretty well to much surprise. Unfortunately, this gave some fans the idea that they could recreate this trend with other films like #ReleaseTheLucasCut for Star Wars. Some fans seem to think that because they don’t like something, they can simply demand a reshoot of something that many people spent a lot of time, energy, and money working on.
Pros And Cons To Zack Snyder’s Justice League
So the long-awaited Snyder-Cut version of Justice League was finally released by fan request. Why is this a big deal? In 2017, Director Zack Snyder had to leave the production of Justice League after a family tragedy occurred. So, director Joss Whedon took over in his place, ultimately becoming one of the reasons why the movie flopped. The movie was hated by both the fans and the actors in the film. Later fans learned about how the movie would have turned out had Zack Snyder stayed as the director, which created the trend #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. Now that the Snyder-Cut has been released, the reviews have been split down the middle and can be a bit overwhelming. If you are still unsure whether or not you should watch the film, here are some pros and cons that might help you decide.
Not Everything Needs To Be A Cinematic Universe
It’s no secret that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is dominating the entertainment industry, and with good reason. So, it’s no surprise that many other studios are attempting to do the same thing. What makes the MCU so successful is the foundation it first laid out with individual characters and stories to get us invested and watch them grow. The Dark Universe failed because it struggled to make people invested in the individual movies and characters. A monster mash-up sounds interesting in theory, but if no time is spent making us care about the movies they’re in then audiences won’t care about the monsters getting together.
