All things me.

I’m probably spending at most a forth of the time watching movies that I do watching Red Letter Media’s reviews of movies. Sometimes movies I haven’t even seen.

🎞 Watched: Spider-Man: Far from Home (2019)

As the movie goes on, the more Diarrhea Christmas lights the action scenes becomes but apart from that it’s a great movie. The high school kids stuff is a delight to watch and the chemistry between MJ and Peter is perfect.

I just 🎞 watched Frozen II with Linn and Iris. It was Iris’ first movie theater experience and she really liked it.

I thought the movie was really good. Maybe not quite as good as the first Frozen but highly entertaining.

Microcast: Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker

I just watched Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker in the movie theatre. Here’s some first impressions. Some of the things I say may be considered spoilers.

🎞 Watched: Lyckligare kan ingen vara (2018)

I watched this one yesterday with Linn. Seems like it was quite some time ago that we actually managed to get the kids to bed on time and watch something together. So the experience of watching the movie was great. The movie as a movie, was not.

Mulholland Drive movie poster

🎞 Earlier this week I watched Mulholland Drive and now I can’t stop thinking about it. What was it that I saw? What did it mean? And why was I so moved by it?

I’m planning to watch it again soon. Also, I read this great analysis of the movie by Film Crit Hulk Smash.

🎞 Watched: Thor: Ragnarok

I totally forgot to write about it when I watched Ragnarok some time ago. Anyway, I loved it. My favourite movie in the MCU so far.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

🎞 Watched: Spider-Man: Homecoming

This was exactly the kind of movie that I needed to watch right now. Light-hearted and very entertaining. I’d probably say it’s my favourite MCU movie so far. I loved the acting, the way Peter was characterised, the way the classical characters where changed and modernised. I loved the whole thing. Also, the sort-of twist with the identity of The Vulture took me completely by surprise.

My only complaint is that the action scenes themselves where sometimes hard to follow. It seemed like the director was inexperienced when it came to directing action.

I was surprised by the music, which seemed a step up from a lot of other MCU movies.

On a side-note, after the first scenes where we see the lead up to the fight between the heroes in the airport in Civil War, I had to paus this movie and go watch that fight once again. That’s quite amazing considering the fact that before I started watching the MCU movies from start to finish, in sort-of correct story order, that was the scene that I dreaded the most. I was absolutely certain that a scene where our heroes beat the crap out of each other would be just ridiculous in the Batman v Superman kind of way. I was very wrong.
