Ready Player One may not be Spielberg’s love letter to the movies he adores but it’s a generous mash note to all 1980’s b-movie fans— and that is more than enough.
How It Ends is one of those post apocalyptic movies that test one’s patience for the unanswerable.
The Endless, a sci-fi/horror cross blend, starring and directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead, manages to make its supernatural loopiness credible by grounding it all in a recognizable sibling drama.
Foul mouth and over confident gangsters, international female assassins, domestic hit men with fuckup siblings, kingpins with hot triggered heirs that have daddy inferiority complexes, a city in riot mode, and Dave Bautista channeling Drax 2X, make for an over emoting ensemble that tries to keep up with the overheated plot.
Upgrade knows that any story must fail in the past if it wants to have a future.
