Just got back from Ghostbusters Afterlife. The cinema was packed. There was one guy in a costume. One audience member was repeating everything she heard. I didn't know Ghostbusters fans were that devout

This looks interesting ... a dead body with planted brief case to show the landing is in Greece, not Italy ...

Daniel Villeneuve, director of the recent Dune movie, and Blade Runner 2046, apparently is directing.

Read the book when I was much younger.  And also read Rama II.  These were both very good, top notch from my view, and perhaps I'll buy and read  the other follow up books at some point.

Getting dragged to see Topgun 2 tonight by my friends, who are huge fans of the first film. I read the plot on wiki and rolled my eyes.

To me, based on the plot, this film should have come out in the 90s. Using F-18s for the film's final mission based on what I know is dumb. Also, relying on a semi-retired test pilot captain to come up with a strike plan is also dumb. What did the Navy just become inept?

For the record I do think the first was a little cheesy, but I also recognize it had everything to be the blockbuster that it was. I am surprised they didn't attempt a sequel sooner, and to be honest, actually thought it was cool they didn't try to bleed more money out of it.

I'll give some feedback after I watch it.

^ I thought about going to see Chip & Dale but from what I've heard, its self-referential and Easter-egg focused. The member-berries ARE taking over

Yeah Topgun 2 is stupid. Itís like the writers took the storyline from Star Wars and put it in their film. And what they were trying to do would have been a lot easier with F35s and B2s.

The action was pretty good though. It didnít feel like the old Topgun film feels either. And I didnít care if any characters lived or died, where Goose dying is the first one is a big deal.

I saw it on IMAX, so the planes looked great, so if you want to see it for that then itís worth it, but if you donít care I would say wait till it comes out on demand.

I watched "Turning Red" tonight with my wife and kids. The first half of the movie is pretty cringey at times, but the later half was awesome. I mean, I have met, witnessed, and known many a helicopter pilot parent from many different backgrounds, but the mom in the first half really takes the cake. Like I could see her doing those things in private or taking the kid into a private room to say or do all those things, but she does them IN PUBLIC without hesitation and its surprising. Special shout out to Miriam for being an awesome best friend, Malik for being a great school security guard (the subtle "hide and Seek/Sikh joke), Abby's energy, and Tyler coming around by the end.
