Saw pet Cemetary remake. Alright but  its changes were uneeded and added nothing to the movie. Overall, way too try hard and desperate. Passable watch. 6/10

DWARVES IN PROJECT ETERNITY = VOLOURN HAS PLEDGED $250.

A long, long time ago, but I can still remember,
How the Trolling used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance, I could egg on a few Trolls to "dance",
And maybe we'd be happy for a while.
But then Krackhead left and so did Klown;
Volo and Turnip were banned, Mystake got run out o' town.
Bad news on the Front Page,
BIOweenia said goodbye in a heated rage.
I can't remember if I cried
When I heard that TORN was recently fried,
But sadness touched me deep inside,
The day...Black Isle died.


For tarna, Visc, an' the rest o' the ol' Islanders that fell along the way

I'm not...but then again I didn't like the original film.

Same. I'll also add that these "totally not animated" live-action remakes are pretty gaudy affairs to my eyes. Anthropomorphized cartoon animals are fine enough, but when applying this degree of realism the effect is very busy and uncanny. It doesn't have nearly the same appeal to me (same for the Jungle Book films, which are based on a property I do like on the other hand).

I just didn't like it.  I felt the story was two short stories mushed together, but neither one being developed enough to be interesting.  The only characters I actually liked were Timon and Pumbaa and I never felt the film made me care for Kimba Simba or anything about his story arc once he become an adult.

A couple of months ago, I finally sat down and properly watched the Lion King for the first time since it came out (not having been the biggest fan of it then). It was...kind of mediocre? Not as bad as I was expecting or remembered, but I still just don't care for it. Surprisingly, I also liked Timon and Pumbaa (I really disliked them when I first watched it, but it's been many years and I've grown as a movie-watcher since - properly executed comic relief characters shouldn't necessarily be anathema, especially ones that add value to themes and character/story arcs and are just generally likeable characters), and I also kind of liked Scar as a performer. I think the main problem was Simba being an arrogant dumb dumb for the first half of the film, then switching to full out cowardice for most of the rest, and then driving it home with the almost always dumb "I'm the rightful heir" plot device finally making him "turn into the perfect man after which he does everything perfectly without error". When a film's meaningful screen time is about 95% the protagonist, the protagonist should ideally be likeable, and Simba was the opposite for me, and that's really how it began and ended.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

The Hellboy remake just debuted to a dismal 11% at RT, and is expected to do about $16M on opening weekend. Again, Del Toro's Hellboy died for this. :(

I'm curious about audience scores. Even I have no expectations, But honestly, I don't believe rotten tomatoes reviewer after this The Last Jedi trash. Del Toro's artwork really did better job. But I don't like Hellboy 2 writing.
