Brightburn was pretty good. Kinda a mix between horror and comic book movie.

I'd actually be interested to see if it turns into a franchise because they seemingly left things hanging. I'd definitely watch a sequel.

IT Chapter 2 was pretty good but I didn't come away wowed. I felt much more affinity for the kids in Chapter 1. There were a few really good jump scares and legitimately creepy parts, but a few of the scenes where we were supposed to be scared, I actually laughed - mostly at the ingenuity of the creatures and the ways some of the adult protagonists reacted.

I'd say I loved Chapter 1, but only liked Chapter 2. I'm slightly disappointed, I think. But not terribly so.

El Camino is good. It could have been bad and I still would have enjoyed revisiting that world and those characters. I don't know how well it works as a movie. And I'm more interested in the story that would have started at the end of the movie (how does this poor SOB move forward?) than this one. Just a good double episode, is how it felt to me.

I'd give it a 7.5 outta 10. There was 15 minutes in the first half that was a little slow. Recaptured the BB feel but didn't force any characters back into the fold for nostalgia sake.

I agree it was a good movie and an appropriate ending for a character that didn't really get one on the series finale. I was mostly relieved they didn't re-contextualize the prior events which could have been awful.

Rewatched "Big Trouble in Little China" the other night. Wow, that was filled with a lot of cheesy overacting. Didn't remember it being that bad. Woof.
