Colossal
9/10
A film that’s about...bear with me on this...a young female alcoholic prone to emotionally abusive boyfriends #AnneHathaway who moves back to her home town, hangs out and gets shitfaced with some locals AND THEN discovers that she (literally) appears as a Godzilla type monster lizard in Seoul at exactly 8.05am if she happens to be staggering half cut back through a specific playground in her home town at that time, and yep, destroying buildings and killing hundreds/thousands of innocent Seoul citizens as she does so.
And at 8.05am from that day onwards this plays out (and other shit happens too) as she tries to figure out WTAF is happening and deal with the very real deaths she, and later someone else, are responsible for.
Uh huh.
It’s an INSANE premise.
But somehow it really works!
An EPIC film...
:)

We watched The Week Of with Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. I give it a 7/10. It had a pretty straight line of being enjoyable and mildly funny. There were only one or two LOL moments that stood out. But it's an ok, easy to watch movie.

We also watched Click, being in the whole Adam Sandler vibe. That one is 8/10. Really funny and it actually has a great message in the end as well.

Colossal was great.

Captain marvel:
So yeah.. Another origin story.. Honestly I'm a bit burned out with those.. But..
Brie Larson is doing great here. She makes cpt marvel a more fun character then she is in the comics. there's humour, the villains are actually good here with understandable motivations instead of just mad plans. The 90s take felt a bit forced but gave a few good moments.
All in all I really enjoyed the movie and I'm stoked for avengers endgame now.
Goose the cat adds another point.
8/10

It's interesting that you say "more fun character then [sic] she is in the comics." I get what you're saying ... since Civil War II she's been written somewhat "stiffer" than she used to be. Pre-Civil War II she was one of the most fun/interesting characters in Marvel. Kelly Sue Deconnick's run (upon which the movie's portrayal is loosely based, and who had a very brief cameo in the movie) was fantastic.

I'm a bit burned out with super hero movies in general, to be honest. There's too many. Marvel should tone it down a bit.
I see it differently.
Superhero comics are where other genres go when they can't stand on themselves anymore.
captain america was a war movie
cap 2 was a tech thriller
guardians a heist movie, just like ant man.
thor 3? buddy cop

avengers reaches into space opera by now.

Stuff like westerns and conan aren't relevant on their own. But in comics you can have them perfectly.

As long as they're good movies I'm perfectly fine with it.

Exactly. She's best when she's openly enjoying her powers and who she is.
I'm currently re-reading marvel comics in order and it's fun to see how she developed as a character. Her first run wasn't all that great but by the time she put on the black bathing suit she was a great character. REALLY abused in that cormac story. It's just a shame there's so little material of her as binary.

Captain Marvel.

I thought it was a great film, a very good effort all around, I really enjoyed it.

The cat was cool. :D
M&I really enjoyed it too.
I’d give it an 8.5/10
It loses a couple of points for a few glossed over plot points - why did Nick Fury trust her and buddy up so quickly, she becomes half Kree because...Jude Law piped some of his blood into her...uhh WTAF, if you have blue blood - yes, I’m looking at you Annette Benning- there is no goddamn way you’d look pink and pass for human, Maria makes the responsible single parent decision not to fly a likely suicide mission to help out some aliens but then changes her mind in the space of how long it takes her 7 year old daughter to say “you don’t want to be a bad role model for me” (so yeah, about 3 seconds then), shooting a zap ray at the energy core blows the SHIT out of everything else but gives Danvers humungoid powers...wut etc etc
But it gains a solid half point for *nonchalantly flicks lid off tin of whoopass* for Nick Fury losing his eye in such a dumb and frankly embarrassing way thereby showing us that “THE SPY” is human and just as prone to life (or Flerkins) serving him a slice of fuckery as much the rest of us. Betcha he spills his first coffee just as much as I do in the morning #overfilling :cold:
Also, I’ve posted about the “you’re my Wing Man” smile and half wink Captain M gives Stan Lee on the train already
But *choking up*
Dammit.
It still gets me...

Also, and it needs saying, M&I both love Annette Benning but JESUS, watching her get her *moves* on to Nirvana’s Come As You Are during her stand off with Captain Marvel was one of the most cringing “Mum dancing” moments I’ve ever seen on the big screen:facepalm:
Annette?
Just
NO.
:cold:
