Can Watchmen stick the landing?

We have arrived at the final episode of Watchmen season one, which makes me incredibly nervous, because if you’re familiar with Damon Lindelof, then you know sticking the landing isn’t his strong suit. Even though the story is mostly in focus now, and we can see how things connect, there are still a lot of questions to answer. Full Story

Shawn Mendes has joined TikTok, and I don’t know what it means for the medium. Does having celebs like Ellen DeGeneres and Reese Witherspoon and Shawn Mendes on there make it less palatable for the youth? And if they leave and find somewhere new to post,  how long will it take the grownups to find it and ruin it with their oldness? Below is my favourite TikTok of the week (be careful with the sound, there’s swearing). Full Story

Look, I’m not going to bury the lede – between 1:46 and 2:26 I broke out in goosebumps no fewer than six times. But the dreamy strings at the beginning meant I was primed for it from the very first frame:    I don’t know if any recent movie has been as consistently anticipated as In The Heights… except maybe Crazy Rich Asians, which isn’t coincidental. Full Story

Shazam! gets another shot

For a superhero movie, Shazam! flew under the radar this year. It deserved more attention, it’s one of the best superhero movies in recent memory, and definitely a high water mark for DC Films. But it came out smack dab in the middle of Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, and it seemed to get lost in the shuffle (it only made $364 million, which is the lowest of a DC movie this decade). Full Story

The players return in Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a surprise hit in 2017, a sequel/soft reboot that actually manages to add to the lore of the original movie, such as changing the Jumanji game from a board game to a video game, while also standing on its own. Jumanji: The Next Level is the inevitable sequel, crassly capitalizing on the lightning strike of Jungle. Full Story

Today is Taylor Swift’s 30th birthday. I can’t believe it’s gone by so fast. I feel like it was just two years ago when all that sh-t went down between her and Kanye West at the MTV VMAs. We’ll come back to Taylor’s big milestone in a minute.  Taylor spent her birthday eve receiving the Woman of the Decade award from Billboard. Full Story

This has been a great year for film, so I fully expect enthusiastic arguments for this or that film not on my list because it’s not possible to pick every film for a list that is meant to be finite. In a year with so many genuinely good movies, I would pick every movie if I could, but since I can’t, here is my top ten. Full Story
