caught detective pikachu, hellboy and shaft
pikachu had its moments, but sadly overall i found it a bit lacking, somewhat disappointing and felt sorta like a mess
Hellboy i’ve no clue why they thought it needed a reboot, and when done in that way. This too had its moments, if few, but it mostly just felt really cheap, and “wrong” somehow, and in so many places, and a bit halfarsed too… and i’m still confused as to how they made David Harbour appear so small in a bunch of scenes o.0
Shaft on the other hand, was just thoroughly good old entertainment. Corny as hell action, jokes and dialogue. Just perfect. Way less serious than the 2000 movie, which i think was good. Dialing up and playing on its own over the top and ridiculousness really served the low brow cliche 90’s type action comedy very well.
-gold star for Sam Jackson’s profanities hammering home that R rating as usual
