Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021) 5/10

Pretty dumb fantasy comedy that is too goofy for its own good. Personally did not find it especially funny.

The Mitchells vs. the Machines (2021) 8/10

Wow, this one took me by major surprise! Such a likeable feel-good story with good energy & positivity. Animation style, soundtrack, comedic timing, voice acting, story, it's relevance, everything on point. Honestly one of my best views of 2021 (to date).

Clearly I am not the only fan:

A little bit of originality at least.

Nobody 7/10

Classic action flick as others have said. Definitely worth the watch if you enjoy those.

Without Remorse (2021) 6/10

Flat action thriller filled with tropes. Brings nothing new to the table besides some decent combat scenes. I believe it also does a disservice to the source material.
Complete and utter disservice. I doubt it falls within the Jack Ryan Universe that Amazon have. Which means John Clarke can't be used there. In the Tom Clancy books they work together frequently. So that's a stuff up.
The book, Without Remorse, actually doesn't deal with what the movie does (saw the trailer). In the book, he's a white Vietnam vet, who falls for a prostitute who he cleans up with the help of 2 doctors (who play roles in a few other Tom Clancy books). They're driving around town one night, and get caught by this girl's pimp who kidnaps her and tortures her to death after shooting Clarke and leaving him for dead.
He gets better and goes after every single one involved in this trafficking ring. NOTHING to do with this movie's premise. AND, theres another side story in the book which leads up to him getting into the CIA.
Got the movie, doubt I will end up watching it.

Is is just me or are there a lot of "shorter" length movies lately?
Watched one recently that was just 70 mins. This one 79 mins so minus the credits probably about 74 mins.

Mainstream (2020) 5.5/10

Offbeat comedy-drama that tries to hard. As much as I like Andrew Garfield this move is a bit of a mess ito direction.

With Disney buying Fox it delayed things until Netflix eventually bought it from Disney.
