Multiverse Implications of the New Mulan Movie?

Yesterday I spent an inordinate amount of time thinking about Mulan. Not the classic animated film from 1992, but rather the upcoming live-action remake due out in 2020. (That’s about the only thing I’m looking forward to in 2020) I’m not all that concerned about whether it’s going to be good or not, frankly I can sum up how I feel about nearly all the new Disney remakes with an emphatic “meh”, and I just don’t see that trend reversing itself anytime soon. I’m much more interested in the fact that out of all the new Disney remakes, Mulan looks…

Mission Impossible: Catch Up

In just under two weeks the newest Mission Impossible movie will arrive and in preparation for this movie, I have a confession to make. I’ve never seen a Mission Impossible movie from front to back. Ever. Not once in my life have I started one of these movies and then some 2 hours later arrived at the end. I’ve seen chunks of most of them. They seem entertaining enough, Tom Cruise is obviously a pretty popular guy, and I’m a big fan of spy movies. There really isn’t a good reason for why I haven’t watched them, other than the overwhelming…

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Look, I’m gonna eventually say something here that qualifies as a spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War so if you haven’t seen it yet you’ve been warned. I won’t be spoiling any details from the newest Ant-Man however. I had the opportunity to go see the new Ant-Man movie last night and I’ve gotta say that after what was an utterly depressing end to Infinity War it was kind of nice to go back to the fun little adventures of a hero like Ant-Man and not think about the fact that like over half of the Marvel characters were wiped from…

The New MoviePass

I’ve stated like a hundred billion times that I have a MoviePass and I love it, it’s an absolutely insane value for someone that goes to as many movies as I do. I also believe that unless something dramatic happens MoviePass will soon run out of money and cease to exist. The folks over at MoviePass also seem to believe this as they recently announced some upcoming changes to the service. Let’s go over them quickly because while most of this is nice and convenient there’s one that sticks out like a sore thumb to me. I’ll start with what…

Hollywood Here I Come

Fun fact: Last week I got to act in a movie. Not a major blockbuster obviously, but in a student film directed by a friend of mine, Sam. “But Jonny, you have like 0 acting experience! Why would anyone seek you out for their movie?” Well, I happened to be available. Right place right time sort of thing. The actor Sam had previously asked to play the role had dropped out on short notice or something like that, I didn’t get a full briefing on what happened and needing to fill the role quickly Sam contacted me and I readily…

The Worst Movie That I Love to Death.

Over the weekend I applied a Windows update to my computer that basically broke everything and eventually led to me being forced to do a factory reset on my computer. This was enormously frustrating (why do you force these updates on my Microsoft?) but that’s not what I want to talk about today. That was just to set a context for why over the weekend I went back and re watched Romeo and Juliet. (the 1996 one with Leonardo DiCaprio, cross dressing and everyone screaming their lines.) I needed something to do whilst I reset all the stuff on my…
