Ad Astra

The 'projector' wasn't working tonight when I went to the AMC Prime theater. Knew I should have just went to the normal one, but figured this would be the best split between Dolby Vision, which is farther/in a more heavily populated area that I don't want to deal with, and standard, plus it's like 3 mins from work. The manager said they've been on the phone trying to get a key to unlock and it wouldn't be good until closer to their 10pm show. Guess I'll go on Saturday. They gave me a free ticket, but, like, with the subscription thing I rarely ever get close to my 3 movies a week, so idk what I'll do with it.

What a shame. Hoping I don't experience that when I try my local IMAX tomorrow.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus!

Netflix is good at brining TV series back that weíve desperately wanting more of.  The problem is, the time of the genius is over, so we receive a hollowed shell of what used to be packed entertainment.

We are certainly getting more of Zim that we used to have.  It is firmly in step with the series.  However, the show isnít as edgy as it used to be.  Railing against consumer driven society and horrible darkness in kidís shows isnít rare anymore.  Zim hasnít changed, but the world has.

But more than that, the show used to have surprising moments of comedic genius in a number of episodes.  Gir singing the Doom Song.  The character of Tak, who understood just how stupid everyone was.  The waffle episode.  Gir getting rid of his chip which allowed them to make it home because he needed a tuna sandwich.   Nothing like that occurs in this movie.  It is a rehash of the same humor, the same characters without any innovation.

If I wasnít such a completist, I should have just watched three of the old episodes.

3/5

It was charming enough made me laugh about as frequently as the show did. I still think the animation style is great.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty good too, but I only read the first volume, felt like a lot of the intro rehashed the graphic novels.

Hey, I posted my review in the wrong place!  I really did watch it.

Oh well.  Where I have posted, I have posted.

Guy in front of me on the plane was watching. Every time I looked over it seemed really boring.

The Matrix Resurrections
I will always watch a Wachowski film for the visuals, but every time they opened their mouth my hope for this film died.
