Shame for Rian Johnson not getting a full trilogy to his name (would have been very curious to see a full trilogy with him at the helm, considering The Last Jedi easily had some of the most interesting ideas and aesthetic choices out of any of the Disney Star Wars so far), but at the same time I'm looking forward for more Knives Out films.

If you guys have never seen Harry and Tonto that is so worth your time to watch. It was on Pluto last night. I watched it for the second time.

I have always liked Ryan Reynolds, even in otherwise "bad"/unremarkable films like Blade 3 and Green Lantern.  His overall acting feels (to me) rather generic yet his on-screen presence is often very funny or charismatic in a cheeky way. Which is why those ads he does on his YT channel are so great.  I vaguely recall that hitman bodyguard movie, they were an amusing pair.

given a few o' the problematic stereotypes o' the shang-chi comics character, not least o' which is inexorable linked to fu manchu, am suspecting significant changes from the source material. 

am admitted knowing shag-chi only a little, but am curious how this is gonna developed so as to not cheese off the increasing important chinese audience w/o appearing to be overt pandering to the same audience.

HA! Good Fun!

I believe they are using the Mandarin, the real one this time (and also trying to tone down the more problematic stuff), in place of Fu Manchu but I'm also not very knowledgeable on Shang-Chi

Well, after the first trailer ("It's a birthmark" "What do you mean?" "He was born with it") I am prepared for something akin to Annihilation.

It needs 90s techno though

😄

Mortal Kombat was super fun. It is still a bit of a B movie, but it was well done. The new guy, Jax, Scorpian, Sub-Zero, and Kano were all excellent in their parts. Goro looked great. The fighting was fantastic, violent, and had a bunch of nods to the game. I'm not going to say it broke the mold of bad video game adaptations. It was still a pretty silly film. But it was worth the watch. It's set up nicely for a sequel, so hopefully we get to see more.

Ate pizza and rented "Nobody."   I regret not a penny.

Bob Odenkirk is great.  Seeing Christopher Lloyd was nice too.  Most of the film he's not the invincible the Liam Neeson type of action dude, altho that's not to say it's realistic either, haha.  Overall nothing too special about it as a movie, but Odenkirk is awesome/sells it and made it a "good" movie.  The last stand-off was very outlandish but super fun and quite a few lol moments throughout, for me.

Started Mortal Kombat.  I'm not into the game or lore so...just lookin' for fights. 😛

...what happens in the first scene of the movie kinda ticked me off in that movie kind of way, but oh well.  Sub-Zero seems quite considerate, freezing flesh before breaking limbs off.  At least it would sort of deaden the pain of such amputations, right?!  Maybe? ... Anyway ...
