29. #KittenWatches Moonfall #DisasterMovie with @DisMoviePod

This movie is a disappointing, hot fuckin mess. I say that as a lifelong disaster movie addict. It's like they removed every fun element from a standard disaster movie then bulked it out with endless, boring,
complicated subplots & needless characters they didn't make you care for.

Worse, the entire thing was way more complicated & confusing than it needed to be. And omg, it took itself FAR too seriously, especially for such abject nonsense. The cardinal disaster movie rule, broken.
I want to slap everyone who wrote and participated in this convoluted nonsense. Especially given it's offensively large budget!!! 🙃

If Moonfall gets a sequel from it's genuinely terrible open ended ending, I give up.

On a painful note I have to mention that they evacuated the care homes. I can't even. 😭 (If you don't get why that is heartbreaking & deeply distressing, you probably aren't disabled & probably trust that authorities would actually do that in reality. Some of us know better.)
I was literally so exhausted by the end of this movie that I wanted to cry. I can only hope I remember how bad it was, despite my memory issues, and never accidentally watch it again! 😬

It could have been good. It should have been good. I'm so sad it was epically terrible!

30. #KittenWatches Survivors, 1975 (BBC adaptation of Terry Nation book)

I have more complex feels here than I'm able to express in current health crash… so I'll just say that the story itself is fascinating but it's ruined consistently by a huge heaping of bigotry.

#TvReview
In the end, I couldn't even finish the last season. It was just too upsetting. I think I only made it so far due to crash.

Honestly? I would just skip it and watch the newer BBC adaptation of the same book, from the 2000s!

So - please do note the following content warnings! 👇
🚨 Content Warnings 🚨

Misogyny
Ableism
Racism & xenophobia
Harm to animals
Sexual harassment and implied assault.

I have to score much lower than the story itself deserves, due to the sheer weight of bigotry contained. 1.5/5
31. #KittenWatches #TheCore

The Core is up there with the most ludicrous of disaster scenarios and is imo one of the more fun of the cheesy disaster movies, too! I mean honestly…the entire thing is so beyond fictional, it's just glorious!

This is a movie that knows damn well we can't reach the core of the earth, but audaciously asks "but what if we could?".

(Side note - I hope humans never do manage to go to the core, or anywhere even close. I dont want to know what we would do to it, nor why. We would all die.)

Thanks goes to @DisMoviePod for helping me with the alt text for the utterly, amazingly, nonsensical movie poster for The Core because omg, that one was a doozy!!! 🤯
Jesus I just realised that in my foggy state I added a content warning for pyrophobia and added a firey gif to the same post.

Major face-palm moment. Cannot cope with myself, honestly.
I have just discovered that a friend has never seen Volcano and this heinous thing must be rectified. So I guess we're watching that. With immediate effect.
I have told him to expect cheese. Expect ridiculous. Expect DRAMA. Expect a terrible "that's about white" scene at the end - urgh. Expect nothing to make any sense at all. Expect glorious levels of destruction. & one disgusting death that always turns my stomach so I can't watch.
Omg I just heard that Anne Heche died. 💔

#HorrorMovies
It felt like the movie ended really quickly because even without much by way of characterisation and character development, it kept my attention nicely, celebrating the wins against my hated characters and the losses of my favourites!
I also really enjoyed the filming of it and the incongruent touches they added in throughout.

It's also surprisingly not without humour, and has a very recognisable main cast of decent actors.

Oh! And there's a super hot chick to root for! 🙌 🔥

There's some disability rep to unpack.
Our main character played by Dwayne Johnson, has a prosthetic leg. His kid has asthma and is in a building on fire. More than one character clearly has PTSD. All used for dramatic effect but somehow I didn't find any of it truly offensive -
much as I deeply wish an actual amputee had been chosen for the role if they were going to portray an amputee.

They skirted a line fairly well here. It could easily have been seriously offensive. There are issues with it, but not to the extent it spoiled my enjoyment at all. A promo picture shows dwayn...

Firstly - If you are going to have an asthmatic in your movie, ensure your actors all know how to effectively portray it, and for fucks sake, how to use an inhaler. YOU. DO. NOT. spray it into your open mouth!!! 😤
Secondly - There is an awful lot to unpack in Solomon's character. He is a mentally disabled Black man, played by a mentally abled man. There's usually HUGE issues caused by that. This movie surprised me by not *deeply* offending me in the portrayal of this character. Ernie Hudson as solomon, st...
Solomon is not over acted. He is a sympathetic character without at all being pitied. He is treated kindly by all but the villian of the movie, for most of the movie.

I remember often sitting as a family and watching this one - it's another movie that sparked my Special-Interest love for the disaster genre, so it holds a special place for me, for that!
There's plenty of destruction, imminent danger, and drama to keep this ticking along nicely! The ship turning over is a pretty damn epic scene. (Top tip for during such an event - Do. Not. For fucks sake. Cling. To. The. Tables!!!)

The Poseidon Adventure is absolutely stacked full of stars. And this movie's influence is undeniable, too. It's seeded throughout the genre, not to mention there have been so many re-makes in different forms - both movie and mini-series!

If I were to endure this scenario, the last people I'm gonna trust are the ones in charge. Disabled ppl know better, given our current circumstances. I'd die on the way up (down) the boat anyway, stuck somewhere, unable to go on, due to disability… but I'd give it a damn try,
rather than staying where authority told me to, lol. 🤣 ESPECIALLY when authority dude starts literally ordering people to stay - See ya dude, I'm out!
I have slightly mixed feelings about the handling of a fat woman in this movie. It's clear she was placed there to add DRAMA as they try to find a way to get a fat person through this disaster - obviously gratuitous AF. And there are many moments it falls into full on fatphobia.
However she also is a relatively nicely rounded character, important to their survival & the group didn't consider abandoning her when the going got tough. (yes, I did just give myself a Billy Ocean earworm, dammit. & yes, I mentioned it purely to ensure I won't be alone in it!)
Susan's obsession with the preacher is creepy as fuck, and so is how he touches her and how he talks to her. She's a kid, ffs. ✂

As in the original, "Poseidon" is absolutely an "almost everyone is fucked" scenario - even more so, given the cruise liner this time is a damned floating skyscraper on its side. Absolutely huge in comparison to the original!

#KittenWatches
#DisasterMovie
It's really pretty faithful to the original, actually, & the changes were mostly done in ways which corrected some issues with the original, like removing the misogynistic tint of hysterical women, the creepy pastor with his creepy relationship with a young woman,
The fatphobia, and making the cast a little less white.

However, they still seem to get off on ensuring the minorities (and ships staff) are wiped off the face of this planet. 😒
Captain Raymond Holt makes an appearance, which is hilarious to me. I love him and all, but I'm still not gonna trust his authority figure party line bullshit, and I am absolutely escaping that ballroom if I can!!!
I will say the scenario feels a little less realistic, given the rogue wave comes entirely out of nowhere, on a calm sea, & is ridiculously huge. But honestly who cares? I'm here for the wanton destruction, risk to life & epic fights for survival. 🎉
The ending is far better too!

It's a perfectly formulaic but fun, decently well acted disaster movie, with *dramatic* CGI & absolute *lashings* of destruction porn for those of us into that!

It's lacking in real depth & doesn't have enough charm & falls into too many tropes, but I (mostly) forgave it anyway.
The trope I hate the most is the separated, dysfunctional couple being brought back together by the disaster - and dammit, this movie falls right into the trap. WHY?! 😭 It'll never work!

It does however, let you plot the death of a real rich wanker & that shit is always fun! 🙌

The ice age where, by the way:

- Sid the sloth is non monogamous and totally promotes that lifestyle.

- The rhino's are totally gay. (But you REALLY shouldn't interrupt their dates!)

- Humans actually wanted to survive back then. Who knew? 🤷🏻‍♀️
- Sabre tooth tigers in a pack are not just hungry predators but… actually, actively evil.

There's good moments (and a few laugh out loud, so bad it's good scenes, too!) and some fantastic climbing scenes - but for me it just kinda lost me.

67. #KittenWatches Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Hot, badass, powerful female lead. Lots of humour, fun, adventure, revealing clothing and female driven action - what can I say? 🤷🏻‍♀️ It's a (slightly guilty) pleasure!

#LaraCroft #TombRaider
#MovieReview #MovieNight

🧵 👇 Movie poster for Lara Croft...
It's truly hard to suspend disbelief that anyone that fucking rich (not to mention titled) has any redeeming qualities at all, but you somehow can't help but root for sassy, confident, brave, hot, seemingly ethical but so rich how can she be, Lara.
I will say this. It is white. So very white. & it comes with all the colonial ass bullshit that you would imagine comes with rich people doing archeology & raiding tombs in other countries - of which the movie feels uncomfortably not enough aware! 🙃
The secret society is A Lot. Not that anyone in the world would be truly surprised if rich white men really did have a shadowy cult for maintaining their power over the damn world. At this point in my life, I'd be more surprised if they didn't! 🤷🏻‍♀️

🧵 👇
It's fun. It's cheesy. It's got some really teasing and steamy moments. And it has a young Gerard Butler's accent, which is always really hot! Again, a guilty pleasure!
This movie has all the pitfalls of the first, but amped up even worse. Colonialist nonsense. A hell of a lot of non white people die for Lara to be the surviving hero. It's offensive on many levels. I found it much harder to ignore in this one.

I deducted a ⭐ for that reason!
My ★★ review of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life on Letterboxd for my #KittenWatches #SurvivalMovies & TV watch.🧵 👆👇

It did work to some extent though. Especially along with being younger, more relateable, less skilled & less cocky. (And ofc, she is still super duper hot.)

For me, the bow she starts with is also an improvement! Guns are not hot! 🤷🏻‍♀️
The adventure is fun and there's lots of bad guys to root for being punched in the dick by the young Lara. 🤞 And you know? She's up to the challenge!

70. #KittenWatches Creep 2004 w/ @DisMoviePod to whom I give many apologies for this horrible suggestion!

This is the most traumatising movie I've seen since I watched Triangle. Which is ironic because I found out after that they are written by the same man: Christopher Smith.
And Christopher? I am calling you the fuck out for your ableism & deep hatred of women.

I am not even going to tell you any of Creep's pros. It offended me to the fucking core in multiple ways. It doesn't deserve the courtesy of it.
This movie uses facial and body scarring as inherent horror. That's ableist as fuck, to anyone who doesn't realise it.

I want to do damage to literally everybody involved in making this. I am HORRIFIED it got the good rating it did.
Please, take care when deciding whether to watch Creep. It has fucked me up in really bad ways and it did NOTHING to prepare me for it, either. They didn't build up to the tone of the worst of scenes. There was no REAL warning. It just was there, suddenly fucking me up.
It's going to take too long to get this shit out of my head and I resent them to fuck for it. 💔 🤬

71. #KittenWatches Freaky (2020) with @DisMoviePod

The Universal logo playing all bathed in blood red with creepy music playing, I thought, told me all I needed to know about this movie! It didn't though! The movie is WAY funnier. But damn - bloody, it is!

#SpookySeason #Horror Movie poster shows a teenag...
Had Freaky been pure #Slasher instead of #ComedyHorror, it would possibly have been too much gore for me? 🤔

The opening scene is A Lot! I mean, if you love horror, these weirdly comedic but BRUTAL kills may blow you TF away! But the gore level is HIGH & the killer merciless!
However, if you can manage that scene, the rest of the movie will be easily within your range & the tone changes a lot later!

I really did quite love this movie! It's a cool spin on Freaky Friday where the body swap happens between a serial killer & his potential teenage victim.
Kathryn Newton is fantastic as the teenage girl & serial killer both! She can really turn on the menacing! A great performance!

Vince Vaugn playing a serial killing male in a teenage girl's body is admittedly too much, though he *does* settle in a bit and find his pace later.
I'd have preferred it if his performance had been played straight instead of for laughs at how silly and camp a teenage girl would apparently look in this man's body.
One last note - I do often appreciate Bear McCreary's music, and he is really on point here! 🔥

74. #KittenWatches The Ledge 2022

The Ledge is what happens when a man writes a woman's story. It had SO MUCH potential & I felt let down in so many ways! The worst failure imo is how the women are written from a man's paltry understanding of women.

Suuuure. Cos we have soooo much inherent trust in men?! 🙄 Please. A group of men and women si...
This lack of understanding rots the foundation of the entire story & it's really a shame because the premise has real promise. I want a do over!

Seriously - you cannot adequately write this story of men driving women to such desperate lengths to survive, without a woman's input! A woman perches on a ledge,...
I'm brought to that point again, where I think about how men will swear blind they don't know any men who have or would rape or harm a woman. Then they write & create a movie like this, where all the men are either rapists, murderers or enablers. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Sure, dudes. We believe you. 4 men stand in the dark loo...
I will say that the woman is a stone cold badass & an amazing climber & that part kept The Ledge ticking along well enough to keep watching. I really did enjoy the parts where she is alone and climbing - and she's actually a decent actress and really wasted on this part!
#Horror A woman climbs a sheer rock...
All in all, I'd have better enjoyed watching this w/ a friend, so I could hate on the men together & plot their horrible deaths at her hands!

#SpookySeason #HalloweenMovies #Horror #MovieReview #MovieNight

🧵 Movie poster for Barbarian ...
I'm writing this as I watch & directly after cos I don't much want to come back & spend time reviewing it? It won't be the most coherent thing I ever wrote.

Our main character is a Black woman written so unrealistically trusting that I wanted to scream often throughout.
When you have to have conversations with your watch partner that go like:

"I want her to be freed"

"Well yeah, it's not her fault she was written this way"

You know something is wrong with this movie.

I will admit, it often surprised. Just not in ways that were meaningful.
There is some technically good movie making in Barbarian but sorry not sorry, that is NOT enough to make it a good movie.

A white man had no place writing this story. & oooh boy did he fuck it up!

I am OFFENDED it was made. I'm OFFENDED men are reviewing positively.

#Horror 🧵
🚨 Spoilers 🚨

I just don't know how to sum this up.

In reality the woman would never have entered that house. She would never have trusted the man. She would never have gone in the basement. Never have gone in the secret basement area. Never have gone down the secret stairs
🚨 Spoilers 🚨

But she does & in this creepy ass basement is a woman who's clearly been held captive, for a very long time. Perhaps her whole life. It's horrifying.

There is a teaching video for breastfeeding, playing on a very old tv. Feelings sink lower in my friend & I both.
I think the most horrifying thing about Barbarian is how it feels like they are wanting the audience to see this clearly tortured, traumatised, captive woman as less than human.

As a monster.

Worse, she is naked & they are objectifying this "monster".

Fucking NO.

#Horror 🧵 A woman covered in blood, w...
Worse, the underlying theme of her monstrousness is clearly ableist.

She is traumatised and mentally ill, hence violently dangerous. 🙃
Once again I'm just left sickened by men.

I was having a shit day before this movie and it did not improve my day nor my life.

I had so many issues here that seriously I can't begin to write them all down. But I had to purge this shit!

I am so depressed.

So sick of this care co treating me like less than human.

So sick of their abject ableism they refuse to see.

So sick of my life and health meaning nothing to them.

So sick of them getting good ratings because everyone is afraid/unable to speak the truth.
These are people who choose to frame my complaining they arent allowing me to be CLEAN or to sleep as long as I might be able to, as ungratefulness or rudeness or my just not understanding the position they're in and how hard it is for them. 🙄

It's appalling & clearly ableist.
It is so toxic to see things that way instead of seeing people's desperation and tiredness and illness. Seeing that we deserve our care needs met and the absolute least we deserve when they don't meet those needs is understanding that they aren't, and a genuine apology.
