it's okay i'd skip my thoughts on things too

Edit: I will say, one thing I didn't like about the Hulu doc is that it gets a little too "memey" at times. Like at certain points they'll say something and then pan to like a clip of The Office or something that's vaguely related to what was said, and it's unnecessary most of the time.

10) Godzilla (1998) - C. This is a very dumb movie, but it would be a whole lot less dumb without Audrey in it.

Sitting through the credits, "Come With Me" starts playing, & I'm like "wait...hold on.....is that Kashmir? .....it is Kashmir!"
That got me thinking about how much my opinion of sampling has grown over the years since I was a kid & hated "I'll Be Missing You", to the point where I frequently love hearing samples of good songs now, but then I'm watching freaking Godzilla & freaking "Come With Me" plays & I just start immediately hating it. So I think the issue isn't that I ever had a problem with sampling; I think the issue is that Puffy just sucks.

^That wan't just a sample, man. Jimmy Page actually sessioned on recordings with Puff the Dragic Driddon, or whatever the hell he's calling himself these days. I remember Piffel Pufficus Gargamel performing 'Come With Me' on SNL back when I was in high school, and Jimmy Page was right there on stage with him. Crouched, Gollum-like, yet smiling. As if to say, '...yes, this is evil incarnate, but, hell, it's paying for my new yacht.'

11) Breakfast at Tiffany's - B+. We both kinda liked it.
The pace of the story is very strange; the entire first half of the film feels like a prologue, & then all of a sudden things are reeling out of control. That's not a problem, though; it's rather fun. The problem is Mickey Rooney in yellowface when his character could simply (a) not be Japanese or (b) not be played by Mickey Rooney in yellowface.

^ Or (c) they can make the movie according to their vision. ;)

2. The Matrix - A

I've seen it a million times since I was a kid but I keep finding something in it go enjoy. Hopping inside Smith is kinda lame though, fights definitely are weakest in this entry.

2. Incredibles 2 is not bad. A bit predictable, but a lot of funny moments. I really enjoy E's character. My kid loves Jack Jack. I kinda like that the main antagonist borrows a bit from Lex Luthor in terms of motivation.

^^Whose vision? The producer behind the film wanted to cast an actual Japanese actor (the character is Japanese in the book it's based on, but isn't such a caricature). The producer's (& the author's) original vision was to cast Marilyn Monroe in the lead, but she turned it down, so making it totally according to their vision was already off the table.
The director (who was a hired hand on the project--& the 2nd director hired at that--not the driving force) insisted on Rooney to add a broader comedy style that doesn't match the rest of the film or the original book, but later regretted it, so he apparently doesn't think that part of "his vision" was the right call.
It's also a bad performance. Pretending we lived in a world where there was never any racial disharmony & nobody had reason to be insulted by cross-racial casting, Rooney was still badly miscast. Sometimes some part of your "vision" is a bad idea, & you need people around you to say no.

^Agreed. I just wish they'd gone more off-the-wall with it.

12) Hidden Figures - B+. Some of the more by-the-numbers parts get dull, but on the whole it's a good film.

1. Truth or Dare

You're run of the mill horror vomit waste of money. Between its script, actors, and recycled premise, I am surprised to see that it was even produced considering the template the film followed. (not so dissimilar from the first "truth or dare" film made in 2013) It's just all around not scary and feels like a comedian telling jokes in a room of people cringing in embarrassment. If you make it to the end you'll get to see your patience rewarded with a stupid ending and the satisfaction that at least you got to see some bad actors fake die.
