What movies we’ve watched in this new year 1/6/22

Kevin Israel watched:

Don’t Look Up (2021)

  • Two low-level astronomers must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth.
  • This movie should have been a home run. A comedy with Leo, J-Law, Streep and Jonah Hill? Well, it stunk. The movie had an agenda that was supposed to be delivered via satire, but the satire wasn’t funny and they beat you over the head with the theme for over two hours! The film suffered from very little character development and, let me say it again, it wasn’t funny. 4/10

Kevin Gootee watched:

Shang Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings

A valet car parker learns his dad was the owner of 10 rings that did some magical shit and also learns his mother’s death is (get ready) didn’t go down like he was told it did.

Didn’t give a shit to see it in the theater and glad I didn’t. Awkwafina is annoying her voice is grating, and she falls into the “trying too hard” category like Rebel Wilson. The action wasn’t anything breathtaking and the villain was unremarkable. I think people went gaga over it because it’s the first Asian Marvel superhero to get his own film. Sorry, I’m not throwing bouquets for that reason. I want a better plot/action/villain and not going to give it bonus points for a first for race. This one won’t ever be discussed at a top Marvel film for a good reason.

4.5/10
