I am currently watching Avatar: The Last Air Bender and The Umbrella Academy.
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World charity script read-through #
The cast (most of them) read through what seemed to be the entire script via Zoom for charity. Not only did we get the sort-of movie itself, but we also got to see the cast members throwing in jokes and having fun with each other; it was heart-warming and added so much to the whole experience.
This wasn’t hugely clichéd but it was moderately so. Hero who’s depressed from the loss of a loved one? Check. Attractive female who looks good even in the middle of a firefight? Check. A kid who doesn’t trust the hero in the beginning but loves him by the end? Check.
I’ve watched this movie six or seven times and have found myself skipping parts, but didn’t do so this time and it was almost like seeing it for the first time; I seemed to have forgotten much about the beginning in particular.
The first time I watched this was because I was bored and selected the first mildly interesting looking movie I saw; I was glad I had done so within the first few minutes as the scene with the two “bad guys” talking about their imminent kill and its climax made me sit up and start paying attention.
I watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) #
There is nothing I don't like about this movie and I really do see something new each time I watch. The style is just so damn good, and Miles' "leap of faith" is one of my favourite sequences in any animation.
I keep coming back to this movie for various reasons; this time it was because I was in a low mood and sought comfort in something familiar. I tend to skip a few scenes but watch the large majority of the movie.
