What We Can Expect From 2019

When movies are set in the future and we eventually catch up with that future, it is fun to see what they got right and what they got wrong. The 1980s in particular seemed to have high expectations for the year 2019. Starting with…

Blade Runner (1982)

The movie is set in November, so we technically have eleven months to achieve some of this stuff, but here is what we were hoping for by 2019 from Blade Runner.

  • Flying cars
  • Off-world colonies
  • Robots that can love us and kill us

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse in 100 words or less – Spoiler Free

Watch it.

 

 

No, seriously.

 

Here’s the highlights:

  • Visually stunning in a way that perfectly executes a blend of cinema and comic book that hasn’t been done before, but absolutely needs to be done again
  • Well-written (for real) story that contains actual surprise moments
  • Well-acted with a great cast
  • Humor and action for toddlers to adults
  • Great soundtrack (Sunflower is still stuck in my head)

This is a movie for the whole family, not just avid or casual Spider-man fans. Fans of The Incredibles or Big Hero 6 will like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Just go watch it.

 

Ralph Breaks the Internet Review in 100 Words or Less – Spoiler-Free

Ralph Breaks the Internet, aka Wreck-It Ralph 2, is decent sequel full of fun moments and occasional laughs.

While the overall plot is clear for all audiences, the computer- and Internet-related references are going to be lost on younger viewers. This wasn’t an issue for Wreck-It Ralph, as the cameo characters weren’t necessary to “get” the concept.

Multiple times I found myself bored and wondering if Ralph Breaks the Internet grew up a little too much for fans of the goofy fun of the original, more so than The Incredibles 2.

Thumbs up, with reservations. I’ll probably buy it.
