The whole movie is basically about Bastian's depression. It's not much fun to watch these days and I think it's not even a very good movie; a bit puzzling how it was such a fixture in our collective childhoods.
It's a kids film that had cool sets and cool characters, am far more mystified that I used to like the A-team and Airwolf to be honest...

Yeah, I could not stomach Tom & Jerry. Did not make the first 30 minutes, not even my 2 year old or 12 year old had any interest in it. They should rather have tried a different storyline and making it a full cartoon. The movie just did not work for our family.

If this is the quality of HBO Max movies to be released this year, I am starting to shudder thinking about movies like Justice League, Dune, Matrix 4 and the likes...

I will defend Tom and Jerry! I will :D
Maybe it's the weather or a boring day?
I really enjoyed it.

Monster Hunter - 6.5/10. Has an impressive look to it.

Bone Tomahawk - 7.5/10. Slow burn Western leading up to some pretty brutal and disturbing images. Certainly has the worst death scene ever put to celluloid.

Judas and the Black Messiah - 8/10. Lakeith Stanfield is so great in anything, but the 70s slang is pretty hard to understand at times.

Cosmic Sin (2021) 5/10

More Bruce Willis B-Grade nonsense. Generic Sci-Fi story, bland.

Bone Tomahawk was a helluva surprise...definitely worth a rewatch.

The Mauritanian (2021) 7/10

Compelling legal drama. Heavy subject matter tackled in a respectful way.
