Monthly Media Recap - March 2020

March seemed to go be pretty fast and yet March 1st feels like it was about 6 months ago. It came in like a lion and left like a beast from Hell. I hope everyone out there is doing okay. In case you missed it, I'm giving away a bunch of codes for games on Steam. Plenty left!


Star Wars: The Clone Wars Final Season (Disney+) - This has been fantastic! There's a few more to go but I'm glad they had the chance to come back to the series. Still the same great story telling but the animation has improved so much since it first started...wow, almost 12 years ago.


It's sort of like Jason meets Office Space, just not as funny. It's not terrible and there are some bits where I think they really hit the jokes but after about an hour, I was checking how much time was left. I think it would work better if it was split into short webisodes.

Rating: 4/10

Did we need a sequel? Not really but I had a damn good time with it. If you liked the first one, it's probably a safe bet you'll enjoy this one. The gang's all back...well, mostly. Little Rock is barely in this compared to everyone else but we're here for Tallahassee, right? New zombies and plenty of fun ways to kill them. Plus, one of the best post-credits scenes in the history of film!

Rating: 8/10

I haven't seem Daniel Craig in anything outside of Bond but man, was he amazing in this. The whole cast is pretty great and the story is so well told. Some people may refuse to see this knowing Rian Johnson (The Last Jedi) directed it and those people are missing out on a wonderful classic murder mystery.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019, Amazon Prime)
If you're a long time fan of the Kevin Smith-verse, this is your movie. At the same time it makes fun of the whole reboot/remake thing, it's throwing callbacks to every previous movie at you. The movie itself does feel like it's cashing in on that nostalgia a little too hard sometimes but I found it funny just for that reason. If you can sync the movie with YouTube, you can listen to Smith's Quarantinentary track.

Rating: 7/10

I'd been meaning to see this one since its release and am glad I finally got around to it! Not only does it take place in the 80s but it was shot on 16mm film and used a lot of late 70s/early 80s camera techniques to make it feel it was was actually made in the 80s. It's a bit slow to get started, which you could probably say about this type of movie from the 80s, but once it get going it's a Satanic panic good time.

Rating: 8/10

Toy Story 4 (2019, Disney+)
Even though "We have to save (toy) for (kid)" is basically the plot of every movie, Pixar still keeps is relatively fresh with fun new characters and exploring relationships with the original gang. Because they pushed Forky so hard before the movie even came out, I was expecting not to like him but I should know to trust Pixar. Even Duke Kaboom was a fun addition. I may not have gotten misty eyed like at the end of 3 but this ending has it's own gut wrenching to it because it's a little more "real life" than falling into an incinerator.

  1. Wow! You weren't kidding about watching a bunch of sequels! Your writing about Knives Out reminds me of two things. One is the SNL skit that was based around Daniel Craig's dialect coach and the other is the Honest Trailers video about the movie. Do you ever watch Honest Trailers on YouTube? I get such a kick out of that channel. Anyway, I'm feeling pretty familiar with Knives Out for a person who hasn't seen it yet!

    Jay and Silent Bob are still at it!? And how have they not aged at all? OK, Kevin Smith may actually have aged backwards.

    I never even watched the first Zombieland. Should I? Again, my only knowledge of it is coming from Honest Trailers. I think that Honest Trailers might be my CliffsNotes for movies. :)

    Well, I guess you have an idea of what I've been watching from my last blog post! Other than those movies, I've just been watching people doing crafts and redecorating on their YouTube channels. Things I should probably be doing instead of watching them! ;)

    1. I have caught the occasional Honest Trailer and they are always funny. I highly recommend grabbing Knives Out from Redbox. It was so entertaining!

      Kevin Smith probably looks not as old since his heart attack forced him to lose some weight and get healthier.

      Zombieland (both of them) are a lot of fun. They are definitely comedy first. There's decent gore but it's usually happening in a way that makes you laugh.

  2. Jay and Bob are on the top of our list to watch I can not wait!
