For those of you keeping track, this is Disney's sixth live-action remake of an animated film in the last two years. Originality no longer concerns this company.
Today, I took a bus to New Jersey and attended the 3:10 showing of Nolan's newest film at Kerasotes ShowPlace 14. It was my first time at a theater since March when I watched Bloodshot. Yeah, this movie is way better than Bloodshot.
My mother-in-law has not closed her mouth for the past 25 years. I showed her the ending of this film. That shut her up real good.
You mean movie theaters are still closed in NYC, meaning that I can't watch The New Mutants, Unhinged, Words on Bathroom Walls, or Cut Throat City? BOGUS.
This review is biased. That may not be the most professional way to begin a movie review, but I'm an honest guy, and I got rejected from Rotten Tomatoes a few days ago. Hence, professionalism isn't currently my goal.
If there was a pill that could give you five minutes of pure power, would you take it? You could become a giant and wreak havoc on terrorists by stomping them to death. You could become invisible and sneak into Area 51 to kidnap an alien. Or with my luck, your superpower could be explosive diarrhea. Any of those ideas would be more original than what we got in this film.
I'm Jonathan Sim, and I'm a screenwriter. I'm not a professional, but I have a few years of experience writing feature-length scripts, and I am writing about a topic that has been bugging me recently.
If this film took place one year later and Herschel Greenbaum woke up to the world in 2020, he would have dived right back into that vat of pickles.
