There is a marvelous, cool, new vinyl box set from Mondo and it has all to do with Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame. In this fantastic set of two soundtracks on six LPs, the entire score to both films is presented in full. There is new artwork on each album from Matt Taylor, liner notes, including a letter from the filmmakers, and an all-new hard-cover slipcase that you can store both albums in. It’s quite fancy.  Mondo has spared no expense with this fantastic set.

Mulan (2020) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 3rd, 2020

 

“With lackluster CGI work, pitiful fight choreography that wouldn’t even excite a third-grader, along with zero musical numbers, funny characters to enjoy an adventure and grow alongside with, this live-action Mulan is better left unwatched.”

Another year, another live-action Disney remake travels to its mundane spotlight, only this time it’s headed to Disney+ exclusively for the asinine rental price of $30 on top of the current subscription payment. The Disney remake in question is Mulan, a phenomenal story with superhero elements about a young Chinese woman with supernatural abilities who disguises herself as a man, in place of her father, in order to join the Imperial Army. Unfortunately, this big-budget live-action remake is uneven and irregular in its tone with disorganized camerawork, stale performances due to a dull screenplay that comes across as the biggest mess of a movie that had the opportunity to be great. It wasn’t.

TENET – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 31st, 2020

At this point in his career, Christopher Nolan doesn’t care to explain anything to his audience because he knows they are already along for the ride. Tenet is by far his most befuddling and convoluted story yet, almost demanding multiple viewings to break down exactly what is unfolding on screen at times. While the basic plot is easy enough to follow, Nolan uses his trademarked folding of time to show multiple events happening at once in a kaleidoscope universe that only the Dark Knight director can get away with creating on-screen which will likely lend itself to years of Reddit theories and breakdowns. Using his previous films as a grab bag, Nolan dumps all of his tricks into this one; A heist (Inception), paranoia (Memento, The Prestige), car chases (The Dark Knight Trilogy), audience time manipulation (Dunkirk), characters wearing masks so you can’t understand them (Bane), and of course a Michael Caine cameo. Yet all of these tricks, which he has mastered, don’t translate to anything more than an attempt at a greatest hits album instead of something interesting. There is no doubt that the middle of the road Nolan blockbuster is better than 95% of what is put in theaters any given year but after Tenet one might wonder if a more focused script could have resulted in one of his top 3 films.
