Eternals-6/10 don't expect a sequel. I feel like it could've been more. Maybe with a better director. Just slooooow.

Even the editing was poor. There is a sequel coming or at least a tie in.

End of the movie promised the eternals would return, didn't find it horrible, definitely nothing special though.

Eternals, it wasn't THAT bad, but it also wasn't good either. Also i don't know what was the last Scene, after the credits, about. (not a marvel nerd, so maybe someone could fill me in?)

This. Not sure it deserves all the hate, but yeah it wasn't really a hit either. The last act was pretty messy... seemed like the monster guy got killed too easily, pretty anti-climactic. The giant robot stuff didn't really make much sense either. Actually the whole ending was pretty incohesive and incomprehensible.

Lots of things to like though. I love the idea of making a superhero team out of all the mythic heroes from around the world. Lots of smart character ideas. I loved the relationship between Gilgamesh and Thena, for example.

I don't really get how this works into the rest of the Marvel universe. Guardians of the Galaxy has a part where there's a planet that's the severed head of an ancient celesial being... is that the same as the celestials in this movie? And is that the same as Ego the living planet? Also, how does Thanos have a brother who's also an eternal? And how were there these monsters living on earth that nobody knew about?

Overall, definitely one of the weakest marvel films. Here's my personal ranking of the MCU.
  1. Captain America: Civil War
  2. Spider-Man: No Way Home
  3. Iron Man
  4. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  5. Thor: Ragnarok
  6. Spider-Man: Homecoming
  7. Thor
  8. Ant-Man
  9. Avengers: Infinity War
  10. Avengers: Endgame
  11. Spider-Man: Far From Home
  12. Guardians of the Galaxy
  13. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
  14. Black Panther
  15. Doctor Strange
  16. Iron Man 3
  17. Marvel's The Avengers
  18. Captain America: The First Avenger
  19. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  20. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  21. Captain Marvel
  22. Ant-Man and the Wasp
  23. Black Widow
  24. The Incredible Hulk
  25. Iron Man 2
  26. Eternals
  27. Thor: The Dark World

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

It was okay. Really slow for pretty much the first hour. The second half is better. It didn't do much on the comedy side, which I think is why it felt so slow early on.

Eternals. 6-10

Cosmic darwinism in a struggle pitting superhero eternals protecting humans vs malthusian gods and their genocidal 'deviants'... humans win... the gods are dicks... and the social messaging is overboard on this one... and the story doesnt make a whole lot of sense, I mean why kill humans via deviants if you need their intelligence to feed the new god while its in utero? Ill see the sequel just to see how they kill some more 'gods'

I liked it quite a bit. It was more charming than funny slow at first yea but it got better as it went along.

Watched Scream (2022) at the theater today. Worst one in the series.

I've readjusted my rating scale for movies as a "good" movie these days would probably be considered as pure trash 15 or so years ago. I don't know if Hollywood has forgotten what makes a good movie or if they're purposefully just not even trying to make a good movie for whatever reason.

I know the ending kinda promised a sequel. But, the movie was so bad I don't see why they would put up the money for another one.

Shang Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings -8/10 surprisingly enjoyable, watched it on the plane, will definitely see it again on a larger screen.

Matrix Resurrections - 5/10. Way to kill a franchise. Fight scenes were terrible, no engaging new visuals... Such a shame. I'll go watch Iron Fist again to watch Jessica Hemwick fight better.

Noted!

Another rewatch: Star Trek Into Darkness.

I don’t understand what so many folks dislike about these remakes. I really enjoyed it, especially Benedict Cumberbatch’s take on Khan. Dude is just vicious and cold as ice, just like Khan ought to be portrayed.

Alien 3. Special edition. 6.8/10. Here's some thoughts, I'm not bothering with spoiler tags, as it's a pretty old film and I think most people have seen it already.

I have really mixed feelings about Alien 3 generally. It's a flawed yet interesting film, in the context of the Alien continuity. I've read that it had a very troubled production, and some have suggested that it's a wonder that the film turned out as well as it did.

Pros:
  • The nearly-abandoned mining penal monastery is an intersting setting.
  • A nice slow-burn to the story, before eventually discovering that Ripley is infected.
  • Much of the acting is top-notch.
  • The ending where the corporation guys arrive is pretty cool, although feels a bit half-baked. Could have been developed a bit more.

Cons:
  • Biggest problem, is that Alien 3 is simply not a film anyone wanted. They should have made a sequel to Aliens. Even worse, the first 5 minutes un-does the ending of the previous film, which kindof pisses me off (in a bad way). It makes the whole film feel cheap, like it's a mistake.
  • The setting is a real downer. The setting is dark, depressed, hopeless... it succeeds at what it's going for, but it's the least "fun" movie in the franchise, and doesn't succeed enough in other merits to make up for how depressing it is.
  • They skimped on the alien scenes, maybe the film had a very low budget? The costumed alien scenes look terrible, and the puppet compositing is pretty bad too. Lots of people getting eaten in the dark, off-screen.
  • Like most Alien films, the film eventually devolves into action-horror nonsense where people are getting eaten and it's fairly difficult to follow the plot or care.

First time watching the special edition. It's a significantly better movie than the theatrical version. Lots of changes.
  • It's a longer, better-paced film, that expands on a number of sub-plots that add a bit more meaning to the story.
  • Longer intro-sequence, feels a bit better-paced.
  • Alien hatches out of a bull instead of a dog. Actually this is a fairly big plot-point. Not sure why they filmed 2 different versions.
  • They removed the part at the end where the alien pops out of Ripley's chest. She just jumps right into the furnace without any pay-off to the alien-baby story. Sure, that scene was a little cheesy, but the special edition loses something important for leaving it out.


--------------


So I'm doing some reading about why Alien3 turned out the way it did. Sounds like the producers at Fox were convinced that a 3rd movie in a series will always make less $$ than the second, so they really just wanted to make the film for cheap. They rejected any scripts that seemed more expensive to make.

Too bad, 'cause there were a bunch of interesting scripts written, that showed more interesting directions for the film to go. I particularly like the treatments where Hicks, Bishop, and space marines explore crazy bio-labs that are experimenting on making new and interesting kinds of aliens with different abilities. Apparently Sigourney Weaver didn't want to do another Alien film, so they explored putting her into a coma, and perhaps bringing her back for a 4th movie. Lots of interesting ideas that would have expanded the universe in fun and meaningful ways. Also interesting to see how some of these ideas eventually trickled into later films.

Despite discussion that Fox wanted to keep the production budgets low, I'm also seeing that the budgets consistently go up, and Alien 3 was actually a MUCH more expensive film than Aliens, which is kindof bonkers to me. But maybe the cost of filmmaking has just gone way up generally.

Production budgets:
  • Alien: $11 M
  • Aliens: $18.5 M
  • Alien 3: $50 M
  • Alien Resurrection: $70 M

I wonder how much it would have cost to make a proper Aliens sequel? $75M? $100M? Feels like a giant missed opportunity either way.

-------------

Upon further reading, I see that there's actually alot happening with the original William Gibson Alien3 script. Looks like Audible released a full radio-play of that script, starring the voices of Michael Biehn & Lance Henriksen reprising their characters from Aliens. Dark Horse announced that they're creating a comic book version as well. Perhaps that's going to lay the groundwork for Disney to make something good happen for an upcoming Aliens sequel?

I’ll be browsing that soon

So we just watched Eternals.

Overall … I didn’t think it was as bad as what reviewers were / are saying. I would even be generous enough to give it a 7/10

The slower pace was a nice change, and it is just impossible to not fall hard for Sersi lol.

I enjoyed that 2nd after credit scene as well, very much. Lots to look forward to if they don’t screw it up.

The film is well made and written. I thought Scott had lost his touch but not here. Man I want an extended version of this like he did for Kingdom of Heaven. If he makes it 30-60 min longer that 7-10 will go up. Its one of those 2.5 hours films that feels short.

The reality of 14th century life the film portrayed is brutal. A more psychological than graphical portrayal but it works. Its hard to make you feel about a time and place but this here does it.

Hard to believe they didnt shy from it considering the times. You usually only see this on edgy pay channel cable shows now and even then.

The film is being ignored for the awards season but its probably the best AAA film of 2021.
