I've been watching more movies and shows lately. You probably think that because I create this newsletter I watch a lot of content but actually, I watch very little! Typically because of time constraints and mostly because I'm super picky. But alas, it is the summer time. Summer time is fun time. Beach time. Vacation time. Blockbuster movie time. Kale watch time. So I thought I'd share snippets of my thoughts about some of what I've seen.
Black Widow - Ahh, another Marvel spectacle. This is like the other Marvel spectacles but with less spectaclary super powers...which I count as a plus because it makes the fight choreography more interesting. Putting aside that this movie should have been made 3 years ago, it was a fun time especially on the big screen.
Pig - Nic Cage searches for his stolen truffle pig - I fell asleep in the theater while watching this movie. Probably knowing what a truffle is that the truffle pig searches for probably would have made it less boring for me.
Awake - Surprisingly engaging once I turned my brain off.
Invincible - Another super hero story that tries to subvert super hero stories. This one asks the question...what if superman was sent to earth to conquer it. Come for the super heroes. Stay for the gore.
F9 - Ridiculous but great action (with cartoon physics). Runtime is way too long.
