I just watched the Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey movie out of morbid curiosity (online, you didn't think I'd pay
to watch that sh!t, did you?) and let me just say: for everyone hoping it'd be one of those "so bad it's good" movies, I'm here to tell you... it's not, it's just bad, really, really, reeeeeeeeeally bad (to the shock of nobody). It's awful across the board. Everything about it is bad, and not in a "good" way. The characters are all flat, useless and stupid with no depth whatsoever (except for one via a stalker subplot that goes nowhere and that’s literally
it for character development) with horrendous
shaky cam and lighting that makes it impossible to see WTF is happening (it was so dark, I couldn’t see sh!t and the few kills that were visible had really bad CGI blood) and really bad editing that splices shots from other sets together at certain points (I wish I was making this up
). And to top it all off, scenes dragged on longer than needed to get it to the required minimum runtime.
Way to go, you make an exploitation horror flick out of a beloved childhood character purely for shock value and you can't even get that
right. Or maybe it was to hide the skin underneath those cheap Dollar Store Pooh and Piglet masks, unclear. And BTW: it's so clearly guys in masks who just happen to be plastic-faced anthropomorphic animals per the movie's story.
But then again, the director flat out admitted he was never interested in making a good or even entertaining-bad/so-bad-it's-good movie out of this in his

Otherwise, I've been rewatching the John Wick series the past couple of days and will be watching John Wick 3 tonight before seeing John Wick: Chapter Four tomorrow. Seriously, go watch Keanu's meltdown scene from Knock Knock if you want something that's legitimately
"so bad it's good". "IT WAS FREE PIZZA!" gets me every time.
I also saw Scream VI, which was a marked improvement on V. Loved the characters and horror trope humor a lot more in this and the kills were brutal, though it was borderline ridiculous how much some of the cast were able to take being gutted I must admit.
