Abominable or Not: You Decide! – Episode 32 – The Polymath Roundtable

A welcome reprieve after watching Onward last month and being disappointed deeply, Abominable is up for discussion today! Great music and hugely artistic visuals, stunning on that aspect. I never guessed that I would pan a Pixar film so hard until Onward, but Dreamworks brought a fantastic movie to replace that in my heart.

Abominable rates a solid 8.5 for me! Minor philisophical issues, but overall a fantastic film. Happily recommended.

Quickshot Reviews the MCU: Iron Man 1 (2008)

Starring Robert Downey Junior in the inaugural movie that would create the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man set the standard for the modern understanding of Superhero movies. Hands down one of my favorite movies from the period, this is a complicated film with a lot of ups and downs.

8/10 stars

Content issues in the first 20 minutes with a pair of playboy examples (lasting under 30 seconds) containing mild sensuality and a hot and heavy make out scene, and improper humor throughout.

Content warning and rating

Few things are quite as thrilling for my technology loving soul as watching Tony Stark rock the Iron Man armor for the first time on the big screen. I grew up reading my mom’s comic books and watching various cartoons, so seeing the Armor for the first time was brilliant. Setting aside the setup scenes to show where Tony Stark begins as a character, aka a playboy jerk, this movie recaptured the essence of what a superhero could be in the modern consciousness.

With the understanding going in that Tony Stark begins as a self-absorbed jerk and an arrogant playboy, and that it will take three full movies to close his first arc, this is a fantastic film. The music is nothing special, but the CGI visuals are stunning.

I saw Knives Out this week, and absolutely LOVED it. It’s one of my favorite movies I have seen so far this year, and worthy of joining Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes, featuring the suave Benoit Blanc. Absolute winner of a film!
