Space Jam: A New Legacy

Space Jam: A New Legacy ★★★

I might have brain worms but I kind of liked this? I kind of hate the first film minus Bill Murray and this just worked so much better for me! Don Cheadle is a delight as always and Lebron is a much better actor than Jordan and it just does so much for my experience. The first film is such a bore because of it that this just by Lebron playing an actual character just makes the experience so much more bearable. Also the appearances of Michael B Jordan, Sarah Silverman, and Lil Rey really did a lot for me

Also I think the first film was dreadful to look at, so the cheap 2D animation and CGI was at least for me slightly less uncanny in this! It’s all shallow capitalistic brand pandering that reminds you that corporations own everything you love but fuck if I didn’t find it the slightest bit charming!
