I sometimes think people don’t understand how movies work. For instance, I see reactions to Avengers: Infinity War–the movie prior to Endgame–expressing incredulity that most of those characters are coming back. Which implies that such people are either new to this planet or have never seen a movie before because they’re somehow shocked a continuing […]
I admit that I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the trailer for Disney’s Aladdin…but I did. I found it surprisingly engaging and I felt I wasn’t being ‘Will Smithed’ to death (he’s a good actor but I like him better when he’s part of an ensemble or has a foil to work off of. Kind of […]
