Yes, I’ve been watching movies on Netflix. Here are my thoughts:
1. 12 Monkeys: 8.5/10. This movie was wild, thoroughly entertaining. Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt were both excellent, and the guy who’s the villain seems to be a douchebag/villain in every damn thing I see him in. It’s weird. Also, I think I may have seen too many time travel TV shows/movies and/or read too much Philip K. Dick, because the time travel/continuity of this movie was not that confusing, and I felt like it was supposed to be moreso. Idk. Good movie though.
2. Starship Troopers 3: 7/10. You’re wondering why I watched this. I know. You’re maybe asking yourself why I watched this when I haven’t seen Starship Troopers 2(and really, who would want to?) The answer is Jolene Blalock. I don’t need to explain more. And I regret nothing. This movie was bad, but it was the kind of bad movie that knows it’s bad and doesn’t try to pretend. And the result was a pretty enjoyable movie that exceeded my (low) expectations. Also, Jolene Blalock was the focus of the movie more than Casper Von Dien(who was still good, but had a smaller role than she did). Therefore, she should’ve been billed as the lead actor of the movie over Von Dien. smh @ this sexism.
3. Thor: 8/10. A very entertaining popcorn/summer/superhero movie. Chris Hemsworth was good in the lead role, and had good chemistry with Natalie Portman(who was also good). This leads me to the (fallacious, but entertaining) conclusion that Chris Hemsworth should have been cast as Anakin (then the PT wouldn’t have been as bad!). Because he could totally have delivered lines like “If you’re suffering as much as I am, please tell me!” believably, as opposed to Hayden Christensen. Tom Hiddleston stole the show, though. He’s kind of a big deal. Also, I noticed in the credits that the story was by (in part) JMS. That’s pretty neat. Go JMS!
So yeah, I watched movies.
Happy Star Wars Day!!

Sad news. He shaped our childhood, that’s for certain.
