Just read that the most recent Tomb Raider movie is getting a sequel and Alicia Vikander is returning. I'm more excited than I probably should be.

@Frigate She was fine in it - the film itself could've done without the unnecessary departure from the game's narrative.

@Frigate Oh, sweet. I actually really enjoyed the film, and was hoping they'd do another (especially since they left things on a bit of a cliffhanger) but then I'd read that it wasn't a certainty. Glad they worked out whatever they needed to work out. Thanks for the news!

Not just Endgame but I'm also really looking forward to John Wick 3 next month. Has anyone watched Atomic Blonde or Peppermint? I heard they're a bit like John Wick but with a female protagonist instead.

@WanderingBullet I enjoyed Atomic Blonde for what was and preferred it to John Wick 2.

@JohnnyShoulder Cool, is it on Netflix? I didn't renew my subscription. I was actually thinking of buying the Blu-ray when it's cheap.

@WanderingBullet Not sure if it is on Netflix, I imagine it would be on one of the streaming services though.

Last night I watched The Commuter. It was an impulse buy, basically because I like Liam Neeson but also because I was curious just how similar it'd be to his previous "trapped on a moving vehicle and forced to figure stuff out and stop the villains" flick, Non-Stop.

Turns out, it's almost identical.

But that's no bad thing. I'll happily watch Mr. Neeson all day, he always gives a great performance, and beyond that I was in the mood for a bit of a silly, escapist thriller.

I look forward to the next one, which will have to be either a boat or a bus now.

@RogerRoger I've seen that a couple of times. It's a very enjoyable if slightly predictable thriller. Neeson is a guy I like and like to watch and this movie was another solid outing.

I'll take boat. Less escape routes. 😁

@Frigate It's the kinda film that would only work with Neeson; he's perfected the "everyman" approach to his action films, that same energy, that "uncertainty in total badassery" performance that made Harrison Ford so successful in similar roles.

Anchors ahoy, boat it is.

Dragon Ball Super: Broly (Amazon Prime Video) - Noticed this was now available for home video, so I bought it last night and stayed up way later than I usually do watching it with my brother. This is the absolute best Dragon Ball Super has ever been. It's obviously not a deep film, but it's fun, the action is absolutely fantastic (what I've always dreamed a DBZ battle would look like with modern animation & a big budget), and they actually provided some explanation behind Broly's unusual power level and reworked his history to make him more of an actual character, so for a Dragon Ball film it was good from the storytelling angle as well. Also, in terms of style it looked more like DBZ than the Super TV anime (Now I'm not talking about the animation quality, as I know DBZ didn't look nearly this good, but in terms of style, especially the coloration and use of shadow of the super sayain form, best exemplified when Vegeta first transforms in the film, they captured that look better). The only hiccup was that Frieza wanted the Dragon Balls to become taller, rather than immortal. It was unbecoming of the series' most notable irredeemable villain, just so they could add an extra scene of comic relief to a film that already had a decent amount of it in more appropriate scenarios.

Godzilla VS King Ghidorah (Amazon Prime Video) - Watched this Friday evening. An early 90's era Godzilla film, that sees time travelers from the future attempting to destroy Japan's dominance in the 23rd century by preventing Godzilla from being created, and replacing him with King Ghidorah to destroy Japan in "modern day". You don't watch a "Godzilla VS" film for the story though (which didn't make much sense in practice), and it was just a good comfort food time.

Spiderman into the Spiderverse

Bought the dvd (remember those?) in Tesco today. Really good but a bit cheesy imo. Hopefully they can make another film without the Multiverse concept.

I understand one of Marvel's comics biggest ever hits was the bunching together of all the heroes and villains in Secret Wars but the concept is a bit too out there for me to enjoy.

The animation, voice acting and music is good though.

@jacobia Yeah, hope it's good. The de-aging CGI doesn't look good in some scenes but they still have time to fix it, though. Anyways, the younger version of his character reminds me of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.lol

Also, found this on Wikipedia which was interesting :

"Originally conceived in 1997, the film went through development hell for nearly 20 years. Several directors, including Tony Scott, Curtis Hanson and Joe Carnahan, were all attached at some point and numerous actors, including Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood and Sean Connery, were set to star. In 2016, Skydance Media purchased the rights to the screenplay (which had been through several rewrites) from Walt Disney Pictures, and in October 2017 Ang Lee signed on to direct. Filming took place from February through May 2018."

@themcnoisy I watched Into the Spiderverse for a second time on the small screen the other night (first viewing in theaters) and I liked it better the second time. Spider-Ham is pretty cheesy, but the rest is really good. The visuals are fantastic and it’s a movie and a concept that could only be done properly with animation. A live action film trying to tell the same story with the same pizazz just wouldn’t be possible. I started listening to some of the soundtrack on Spotify today because I enjoyed it so much in the movie.

@Th3solution It is a must watch.

It's really self aware. Did you see the old Spiderman cartoon after the end titles? That was so funny.
