Had a date night and we went to see Tenet this weekend. Pretty hard movie to follow along with but there was some great action scenes as well as great actors.


Also watched Die Hard since he’s never seen the first movie before- and he technically still hasn’t seen it... :LOL:

And honestly, my last complaint, is that the show is given an MA rating. Mature Audiences. IDK what the rating system is like over in other countries, but in the states, MA rated animated shows can get away with a LOT. I’m talking easily R rated if we were using film ratings. And this show…does nothing with it. The blood is minimal and barely ever shown. The swearing is almost non existent. The nudity is always censored. This is stuff you can get away with in PG-13. Seriously. What’s the reason for the rating? I’m not saying an anime needs all the blood, nudity, swearing, etc. But if you’re going to be rated MA, you may as well go all out. This anime is the equivalent of saying Star Wars deserves an “R” rating. An +18 rating. They literally have the same levels of violence, sexualization, and swearing in them, so it’s not a bad comparison.
I agree the inconsistency of ratings on shows is a bit ridiculous. THAT gets an MA yet shows like The Following can show and still get a TV-14 rating. And it's not an isolated incident, either. Hannibal, the SyFy Van Helsing series and Gotham are gory as sh!t, yet they're TV-14 as well, at least on Network TV (though they're given a TV-MA rating on Netflix). Hell, in Van Helsing, a chick literally shoots herself in the mouth to avoid getting eaten by a vampire, literally all on camera, in one episode, yet they though that was suitable for teenagers. And the remaining episodes have gory R-rated vampire/human blood squibs.

I love me a GOOD slasher film, this one looks like it has some Happy Death Day vibes to it while actually showing the kills, so color me interested.

Oh and the Netflix film 'Cuties' Millions of people have cancelled their Netflix accounts over it and Change.org petitions to have the film removed are gaining a lot of traction.

I know, and I keep hearing that tired "it's a statement AGAINST the sexualization of kids" defense. Nevermind that it supposedly speaks out against pedophilia by showing 11-year-olds crotch-grabbing, ass-grabbing, floor-humping, twerking and all kinds of sexualized dances in f*cking sports bras while it frequently zooms in on their ass and genitals. In other words, saying pedophilia is bad... by indulging in it. A man even gawks at the girls like he's turned on by it at one point, yeah, this movie totally speaks down on the sexual predation of kids, lol. How is anyone okay with this?

Anyways, I just rewatched my Blade DVD for the first time in ages, it's a fun throwback to 90's comic book films when they started to rebound following the abomination that was Batman & Robin. The opening action scene still holds up great to this day and I loved the dynamic between Blade and Whistler in this one. I feel they had better chemistry in the first movie than in Blade II, which I also loved. And I especially love Wesley Snipes' "motherf*cker's trying to ice skate uphill" line at the end, always a zinger.

Oh and it actually did a black superhero justice, unlike the godawful Spawn movie that came out a year earlier. Who would've thought an adaptation of the hottest-selling comic at the time would be complete sh!t and a no-name property like Blade would actually be good and usher in the CBM heyday we see today? Ironically, New Line did both films.

The Devil all the Time - 10/10
Boy do I love a good period piece. Especially a dark, f*cked up one taking the place over three time lines with lots of murder and religious abuse. This film is a slow burn. And that's my favorite type of burn. Practical effects, well written dialogue, an all star cast, and originality. These are all reasons I to watch this film. Speaking of the cast, if anyone wondered if Tom Holland could do more than just the quirky, nervous kid, if they'd seen him in is Spider-Man, then point to this as proof. You know an actor is top notch when you don't think of their other roles throughout the whole film, and I didn't think of Peter Parker once when watching this. Hell...I didn't think of Tom Holland. I kept referring to him as Avrin (the characters name). He hits this roles mark. Robert Pattinson, Sebastian Stan, and Bill Skarsgard are also perfect. Just absolute show stoppers. However, arguably my favorite part of this film, is the time period. From the trailers I thought it was like, a 1920's or 30's era film. No. It's the 50's and 60's. But out in the boonies. IDK about you, but when I think 60's I think like, California cities and the Beatles. But...This takes place in the boonies of America. Where they're still living like it's the 30's in a lot of ways. Honestly, there's a lot I love about this movie, and could keep going, but I don't wanna get into spoiler territory so I'll shut up.
