Day 99 - Super 8

Mildly fun and the special effects were cool. And that’s about all you can say about most popular movies. They’re spectacle. Some human drama thrown in, along with the usual banalities: people have feelings and they fight and make up. And all superhero tv shoes are soap operas. The fighting and suspense serve the emotional arcs. All good. But that’s what these things are. Marvel movies are not much different. Better storylines, but they got that from the fucking comic book writers. Easy money, jesus.
