    So with Cinematic Doctrine, my podcast, I'm starting a new segment called Let's Talk where and guest and I go into a topic by talking 2 movies. The first LT will be with Logan from The Reformed Gamers, a fellow podcaster who I had the privilege of working with on his podcast for an episode on the first 3 Resident Evil movies.

    So it only made sense for us to cover video game adaptions on my own podcast, and start…

    Fine. Something about this irritated me, though. I can't really explain it.

    Functionally better than JW:FK though. That movie was a mess, and the best parts were more of a horror feeling than action/thriller.

    I wonder if this was to test the waters. To see if people are receptive to a stripped down horror version of Jurassic Park stuff and not the big action/thriller stuff we've been getting.

    I'd be fine with that. I'd prefer it, tbh.

    I don't mind an adaption changing things, but it can't lose the thesis of it's source material. Otherwise, you have a confused, messy, absolute frankenstein of an adaption where things don't work and everything's covered in staples and glue.

    Chapter 2 had no right to be 2h and 49m lol

    Also major epilepsy warning???? What the heck Andy Muschietti.

    Really enjoyable. Super comfy. Unbelievably adorable. Undeniably creative.

    No shame in basically retelling an age-old fantasy story but in a totally different artistic style.

    Excited to watch Age of Resistance!
