  1. I, at some point, heard someone, probably on a podcast, say that knowledge of the Karate Kid sequels might be helpful with season 3 of Cobra Kai. Is that true? No idea. I'll find out soon enough. Until then... Karate Kid II - I liked this. It took the characters and progressed them. It wasn't a rehash of the first, which it very easily could have been. Karate Kid III - I did not like this. It is a rehash of the first, and really ignores the previous movie. And not entirely sure of the villains' plan. The Next Karate Kid - I'd seen this one before. Really 90s and goofy a
  2. The Unwritten (Vol. 1 -8) - Wasn't really into the story after the first trade. But, I got the all from the library so I pressed on. I think a lot of my early issues (with the early issues) was the split narrative that either went away after a while or I just got used to it. Did enjoy the story for the most part, until The Unwritten (Vol. 9): The Unwritten Fables - This was an utter piece of garbage. I don't know what the idea was behind this. This was not the ending of The Unwritten. This was a Fables trade. As such, having never reading said series, I have no idea who anybody is
  3. I just got the new warnings today as well.
  4. Power Rangers (2017) - Not so random re-watch. To continue my endless saga of catching up on podcast, I listened to Will review the movie. 4 years ago. I don't think I have ever disagreed more with someone reviewing a film but still come to the same conclusion. It's a perfectly fine movie. Flawed to be sure, but in no way ruined the franchise.
  5. UpUpDownDown Uno: I know Mike mentioned it on the episode, but this makes me laugh more than anything in the past year. The game meta they have created, the alter egos, and all the friendly banter. Personal favorite is NXT: Much like Ian with AEW, NXT gave me something to look forward to each week. Also, I really missed NXT UK when it went on hiatus and think it has been a welcome addition. Post Wrestling: Like Ian and Cultaholic (who are fantastic), the Post Wrestling family of podcasts kept me up to date on everything going on
  6. Alita: Battle Angel - It looked good (in that CGI vs. CGI fight kinda way) and I enjoyed the world that was established. But the story was a mess. Somehow this managed to shove 75 different plot lines into one movie, yet still feel like it is missing huge chunks of story and lack a real resolution. Felt more like a series of vignettes rather than a cohesive narrative.
  7. Bloodshot - Came very close to being an inoffensive mindless action film, which are usually fun enough. Three things bring this down. The editing and direction being the worst. Quick cuts for no reason and a camera that is never still made this hard to physically watch. And then there is Vin Diesel. This is my first Vin Diesel movie in which he isn't a talking space tree. I was toying with watching the Fast movies to follow along with a podcast I listen to, but I think I'm good now.
  8. I believe that was the last soundtrack I purchased. Fantastic Four (2015) - There are things to like in here. It just buried under a pretty uneventful script. Don't think it quite deserves the negative reputation that it has.
  9. Captain America (1990) - Somewhere between below average to bad, with a healthy dose of being boring for a while. I enjoyed the Reb Brown films more. Fantastic Four (1993) - Is it good? No. But it has a charm to it. It looks like a cheap made-for-tv movie, but even a cheap one of those. And it even plays out like one. It sets up two reoccurring villains, bumbling comedic henchmen, and a couple supporting characters. This would not have felt out of place opposite the 1990 Flash. (But it feels outdated compared to Lois & Clark, which was made the same year. Which is weird as the
  10. Watched the revivals of Animaniacs & Save by the Bell. Thoughts are generally similar. I would not have watched either if not for the name. I am not the target demo for either of these shows outside of the nostalgia of the name. I think Animaniacs suffered from trying too hard. The meta-ness was cranked to 11 and became too much. I didn't like any of the Pinky & The Brain bits. The exclusion of the other characters also hurt. Even some "Good Idea, Bad Idea" type things would have mixed things up. Saved by the Bell on the other hand just went stupid. Mainly it was the
  11. Wonder Woman 84 - A solid meh. Plenty of little quibbles but overall I didn't think it was very entertaining for extended periods of time. And being 2.5 hrs didn't help. Batman: Soul of the Dragon - Standard DC animated movie. It's okay. No point in Batman being involved. Someone wanted to make a Richard Dragon movie but knew that wouldn't sell so Batman was shoehorned in.
  12. Bill & Ted Face the Music - Saw this at a drive-in in the summer. Still enjoyed it on rewatch. New Mutants - I wasn't looking forward to this after the first trailer. Seemed like it was a horror film. I don't like horror. I don't know what happened between that first trailer and the 17 years it took to release the film. Well, reshoots, because this is nowhere near horror. Instead, we get an incredibly boring movie. The cast tried, but there was nothing in the script.
  13. It is a movie that I never would have liked. But after 3 months of it being played on loop, nonstop, on the TV wall at work, I can say this: I HATE Elf more than any other piece of media.
  14. Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky - Another viewing based on the New Day Podcast. The cartoon violence was fun and the dubbing was entertainingly bad.
  15. A few months ago, I was listening to the New Day Podcast. They had a trash tournament of the best action movies. (I say trash because there was way too much "I've never seen it".) But it did make me want to watch a few movies so, success? Bloodsport - Kinda disappointed. Maybe it was undue hype, but I was expecting something classically amazing. It was mostly cheesy fun, but nothing more. I could see me loving this had I seen it when I was ten. The Raid - I really enjoyed this. Has some issues (some of the camera work was too jittery, which I get was the intent, but hard to wa
