Not so fantastic
This was an interesting premise but ultimately felt like there was just too much going on, with way too much CGI. I didn't think much of the acting or the music either. The handful of references to the Harry Potter universe were amusing but that was about it.
Star Trek: Voyager: Tuvix (1996)
A very thought-provoking episode, and so interesting to me is how by the end of the episode you really find yourself liking Tuvix. But Janeway made they call and he was not meant to be. Very fascinating to consdier what would had happened had he been left how he was and remained as the Tuvix character.
Feels like a big budget fan imitation
As a big fan of MST3K and Joel and Mike I really wanted to like this, and to be honest its fair, but it just doesn't have the same spirit of the original. For one thing, Noah just doesn't seem to have the right personality to be the main host. He looks and sounds more like a Starbucks barista than a guy riffing films. The other thing is that I have a hard time telling the bot voices apart.
As for the films, they are silly and well-riffed, but it just doesn't feel the same to me. It's like a bunch of fans of the original MST3K put this together, and it's fair but just not as good. Maybe it's just me.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Fair ending but disappointing to see so many headline characters gone
This was a fair conclusion of the MCU but disappointing to see so many headline character's have their story arcs brought to an end. Thanos started well in Infitiy War but just felt like a generic super-villain here. The big battle at the end was fine, but the CGI was a little too much.
The Corpse Vanishes (1942)
A little silly but worth watching
The Corpse Vanishes was a 1942 Bela Lugosi mad scientist film that, I guess, has a reputation of being a bad film. It's been riffed by MST3K and, to be fair, it's a little cheesy, but I enjoyed it for what it was: a goofy old mad scientist film involving Bela and a bunch of interesting characters. Citizen Kane it's not, but just enjoy it for what it is.
The film opens with a couple getting married, when suddenly and unexpectedly, the bride falls over dead. A mysterious ambulance crew arrives to take her away, and no one knows who they were. The press reporters find out about this and are investigating, to find out why there has been a trend of brides dying and mysteriously vanishing.
So we cut over to Bela Lugosi who plays Dr. George Lorenz, who is basically a mad scientist apparently, who has figured out a method of extracting the life essence of freshly dead young women and transfers that via syringe to his aging wife? I feel like I've seen this formula before, in films like 'Mad Ghoul' and 'The Ape Man', other similar silly mad scientist films that involve taking life fluids from young, beautiful people, but anyhow. Once his wife gets the dose she seems fine again, and vaguely resembles actress Joan Allen.
That's pretty much the gist of what's going on. Reporters start investigating but will they figure out what's going on with Bela's mad schemes? Watch and find out.
The should have let Favreau lead the sequel trilogy
A decent conclusion, and amazing to see you-know-who at the end not depicted as a milk-chugging grizzly old failure. In a way this felt like a reboot, but sadly, this has to exist in the same universe as the Last Jedi?
