Watched The NeverEnding Story (1984) with my daughter. The remastered Blu-ray version has some decent video. Hard to believe it's an 80's movie at times. I cannot rate it, but my daughter loved it lol.

I only recently realized that it was actually shot in German and dubbed into English :X3:

I care a lot (2021) 7.5/10


Green Room

Dark thriller 7.5/10, good but pretty gory

Tom and Jerry (2021) 6/10

All a bit unnecessary if I am honest. The main selling points is the visually appealing look & some of the slapstick jokes/humour. Other than that the cast & story is mostly generic & a let down.

Pacific rim dance dance revolution (1st movie).

a Popcorn movie for sure trying hard to be drift compatible.

If I could change one thing it would be removing that word and the DDR MECHAs. I mean they could have done with a few better word choices as well as no choreographed two player robots.

That said everything else had good premise especially the scientists.

Now for the scoring:
+DDR gets 4/10 whereas the rest minus drift control easily goes up to 7 as popcorn goes.

edit
I see Pacific Rim: The Black is coming out via netflix.

The Caine Mutiny (1954) 7.5/10

Great insight into navy life. Engaging story with a great playout. Emotion & tension a plenty.

Ok-ish horror thriller. Generic type plot with a ''twist'' at the end.

I'm a huge Tom and Jerry fan.
It's a nonsensical mess in the cartoons as well. So the movie plot doesn't bother me.

I'm half-way through it, but have ripped myself laughing a few times. :p

I don't use YT. So don't know these or any other type of reviewers. I just skipped a bit through his review, but it sounded like a repeat of what he found wrong.

I'm not that pedantic about cartoon films, animations or films like Sonic. There's been very few films I couldn't watch in these genres.

There's an animation called Soul which came out recently. I forced myself to watch 30 minutes of it and I couldn't go on further. That time was wasted and the bandwidth too :p

This takes crappy to new depths.

Animation - 0
Soundtrack - 0
Acting - 0

It's just 100 minutes of utter shame.

That's how I feel about some Adam Sandler movies.
Tom and Jerry is my goto cartoon when I need to rest my mind.
I always sleep better if I watch it before bed.
