Self/Less. 2015

I don't get the bad guys plan. Like at all. Liability incarnate.

Sir Ben Kingsley is terminal, and is approached by shadowy naffs who offer him a re-do, a brand new body, a brand new life. Supposedly the bodies are vat grown, but then the movie would be about a man adapting to a a world that has moved past him.

Which would have been amazing. Instead we get a rather dull film where the baddies are chasing Ryan Reynolds about.

The twists are all stupid. This is a bless'ed airplane movie incarnate. But even then I'd be mad I paid for it.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

I quite liked The One and Only Ivan as it was well made and the true story element made it more heartwarming than it might have been had it been a tale.

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

Bill & Ted Face the Music


They spent too much time hyping "the song" and then it sucked.

I did spend most of the movie laughing, Bill & Ted are as stupid as ever, the robot was funny, and Kristen Schaal is always funny when she yells.

I feel like I have that same sense of disappointment as with a lot of these decades later sequels. Alex Winter never misses a step but Keanu doesn't appear to be enjoying himself ever. It's part of the character, but it's still a Mondo Bummer.

There is a scene towards the end of the movie where they have to motivate death to rejoin the band, and it drags on horribly.

But the song... holy poo. I loved the ballad at the end of the second movie, but the song at the end of 3 is just some overproduced, imagine dragons sounding poo.

Really dragged me down.

I always liked movies like Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, and the sequel, whose name I forget.  Dude, Where's My Car! is another one.

I'm encouraged that a new one is out.  I guess that's why they were on the Late Show plugging it.  It seemed odd that Keanu and Alex Winter are dragging that old saw out of cold storage, but, hey, I'm game.  So thanks for the review.  Forewarned is forearmed, or something like that.

We watched the new Mulan this evening and it was a truly marvellous film, in my humble opinion.

Absolutely loved it.

Great, but not as good as Princess Bride.
Totally agree, but what will be
