This Year In Film / Re: hereditary

This was okay.
It had some cool scenes, but in the end it was just mimicking better horror movies.
It suffered from too much boring "what the fuck is happening" that when it comes together, you're just like "that was it?".

I was hoping to be scared more too. There's like two decent scares in the whole thing.

Yes.

It's a real issue these days. Movies mimicking movies. And not in a meta way. Tarantino's life is made of movies. With Jurrasic World, etc, you can see fanboy filmaking, but this one is also the competent movie of a fanboy. Hereditary doesn't care about...heredity. It cares about its winks and twists.

I loved it.
Not as good as the first, but still beautiful design and action sequence.

It's not gonna be a Pixar classic (those days are long gone it seems)
CoCo is a stone cold classic

I haven't seen it, but I think you're forgetting Lava.

Lava was...something.

It's not gonna be a Pixar classic (those days are long gone it seems) but it is good fun.

It's a bit choppy, it almost feels like there's scenes and lines missing. And the emotional/thematic threads don't seem to get resolved in wholly satisfying ways. They must have had mountains of material and really struggled to cut things down. The original was more complete.
That said, I don't think there were any real missteps in the story and I was smiling and laughing all the way through it.

There's this epilepsy attack inducing scene partway through the film that bothered me visually. Not because of the flashing lights but it seemed like Pixar couldn't find a way to make the scene look good, it briefly looked like a cheap daytime CGI cartoon. It's disappointing because this is a visually stunning movie and Pixar are visual problem-solvers, they can make pretty much anything look good (other CG animation houses are years behind them in this area).

excellent!

one day i want to go to either Burbank Town Center 6 or Burbank Town Center 8, multiplex theaters that play these big international movies.

recently, past month, i watched Takashi Miike's Crows Zero and appreciated Miike all over again. he has a recent that was a big hit, as the trailer mentions it was his 100th movie



Headshot is a well-made action movie from Indonesia so i need to see that asap



and i clearly need to see The Villianess (sword fight on motorcycles at 1:10)

Brigitte seems to work best when there's already a Moira, Lucio, or Mercy, as her support can't do much for the group push or retreat. She is certainly on the more "offense" side of the support characters, though, and her stun/reach-attack work wonders in coordination with your team's backup.

In my experience, Brigitte can work well with a Mercy as the other support. But she's best in a triple support comp with Zen/Lucio or Zen/Moira or some combination like that. You'd usually have a solo tank in that case. Having triple support means you don't necessarily need a 2nd tank and more importantly allows you to run Brigitte more aggressively. Her potential is wasted when she has to sit around too much.

For me, currently, the most 'rewarding and frustrating hero' to develop has been Orisa. If your team is perceptive enough, you can get a strong push together, or hold the payload, and that buff ultimate is quite rewarding.

Orisa is a reliable hero. If you're dying on Orisa too much, it's usually your team's fault, or you're not shield-dancing enough. Orisa can often be the best pick to counter snipers. The key is proper use of Halt (depth perception) and hitting as many of your projectile rounds as you can.

That said, I find Orisa kind of boring and clunky. I could imagine getting into her, though.

I'm kind of laser-focused on Moira/Mercy/Brigitte right now. But also working on Zarya, who is an amazing hero once the playstyle clicks.
