2021 recap part 3

Just so everyone knows I now have a Letterboxd account. I’ll still do posts here for movies and tv shows.

Here is a link if you want to see it: https://letterboxd.com/JacobsonCinema/

Movies:

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: Didn’t expect this to be better than I thought. B+

My Little Pony: A New Generation: A standard My Little Pony movie with prejudice themes. C

No Time to Die: A fond farewell for my favorite James Bond. A

Dune: Great cinematography but I just couldn’t get into the characters or story. B-

Ron’s Gone Wrong: Sure, the third half goes on longer than it should but the social media premise done very well. B

Eternals: Bland characters and bland story makes this one of the worst MCU movies in recent years. C

Home Sweet Home Alone: Trash! The main character has a punchable face and the thieves are too sympathetic. D-

8-Bit Christmas: Sort of a mix between a Christmas Story and Jingle All the Way with a touching ending. B

Encanto: Weak songs but great characters and down to earth story. A

Ghostbusters Afterlife: A fun retread with an emotional ending. A-

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: How does 58 minutes count as a movie?! The animation is terrible and Greg is still an unlikable protagonist. D-

Spider-Man: No Way Home: A love letter to the Spider Man films. A

West Side Story: Great directing, cinematography and choreography. B+

Hilda and the Mountain King: Pretty much everything I love about Hilda is here. A

The King’s Man: I liked the action and the premise with the Shepard. B+

TV:

Kid Cosmic season 2: Fantos the Amassor was an entertaining villain and I liked seeing all the powers being used in very unique ways.

Amphibia season 3: Having this season take places on Earth is a great change to the status quo. I’m really excited to see what happens next year.

The Ghost and Molly McGee: Absolutely charming, cute, and fun. The characters are so likable and this is one of those shows where all the main characters are the best character.

Inside Job: The love child of Gravity Falls and Rick and Morty that’s very creative and funny. Rand Ridley is a more unlikable Rick Sanchez. I’ve never hated a character so much since Dolores Umbridge.

Animaniacs season 2: Not as strong as the first season but it had good segments.

Here’s to hopefully a better year.
