Add Kevin from the 2016 film. Add nothing else from that film.

Have I given my theory about why Kevin was the only funny thing in that movie? It may be somewhere up-thread already.

I think it's in "Superman is gay." Saw that in a search for Kevin and Ghostbusters. (Didn't want to manually search up-thread, but was curious.)

I switched my Disney+ off, and turned on HBO Max.

I enjoyed The Batman quite a lot, I really liked the emphasis on Batman being the Dark Knight Detective this time around. It gave him much more interesting things to do. I thought Pattinson did a good job as both Batman and Bruce Wayne. They also did a good job making a Catwoman who is walking the gray line between heroine and villain. Jeffrey Wright didn't convince me that he was Jim Gordon, but it was enough for me that he was Jeffrey Wright.

I also watched Death on the Nile. I thought the high-budget cinematography was pretty, but actually took away from the movie because it was distracting. I've read the book, but it was so long ago that I don't remember it clearly. Perhaps I should reread Agatha Christie as an adult. I thought they foreshadowed the murder way too hard, so much so that basically all Gal Gadot got to do was swan around saying stuff like "Gosh, I sure hope nobody murders me. Better stay off the train."

Peacekeeper is a mixed bag for me so far. IMHO James Gunn is writing it too woke, and too many of the characters seem like negative portrayals. Guardians of the Galaxy was much better because Gunn seemed to love all of those characters, which made it more pleasant to spend time with them.

If you have hbo,  WATCH WESTWORLD!

I watched Vivarium a few nights back and finished it yesterday. A sci-fi/horror ish thing from a couple of years back about a couple who goes to buy a house and then gets trapped in House Land (and endless block of identical houses that always wrap back around to the one they are assigned) and has to raise Some Weird Kid (a very ham handed play on cuckoo birds).

Weird for the sake of weird, no explanations of anything, and not even a satisfying ending. The ending makes sense, just isn’t a gratifying way to end the film.

Seems like it would have made a good SCP object, but isn’t.
