Soooo, I watched Zombieland a couple of days ago, and still liked it very much and decided to go see the new one as well. I... don't hate it? I mean, it's obviously not better than its predecessor, but it's good enough for me to have a good time and some laughs. Easy to enjoy if you don't overanalyze it. Depends a lot on the first one. I mostly love it for the cast, because everyone just vibes so well with each other, and it's fun to watch. Third act is the weakest, and overall the entire idea behind what motivates the story is really flimsy
Everything happens because Little Rock suddenly gets angsty and wants some pee pee. Roger that lmao. From the moment they enter Babylon, everything feels super rushed. Also, why introduce 3 different types of zombies + a new "mutated" one if you're barely going to utilize their specifics in the film?
I think there's lots of room to nitpick, lots of room for improvement, but I wanted lighthearted fun dipped into some nostalgia, and I got exactly that.

sometimes that's all you need

PS, this last week i saw

Parasite
Portrait of a Lady on Fire
Knives Out
The Irishman
Marriage Story
The Lighthouse

i can't remember seeing a better run of movies in my life

and i saw spirited away theatrically last night, surprised my GF with it since it's like her favorite movie (along with, like, Terminator 2 and Fury Road) and she was beaming. i wept on and off the entire last hour. the whole theater sat through the credits, crying. sold out screening. it was special.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) - worse than ant man
Having enjoyed this film on DVD at home over the course of the past 14 years or so I will finally be seeing this film for the first time on the big screen today. Can't wait.

everyone always says the year is shit until festival season comes around. i think it's because you have to seek out the good films during the year whereas they're presented to us now. i dont think the quality of good films released has changed throughout the year (and its not like a billion garbage movies didnt just come out of festivals, they just aren't the focus)

It was amazing :D ! Watching this stuff on the big screen makes a really big difference imo and whenever I watch a film I saw way back at home in cinemas it's a really special experience.
