Nostalgia Movie Marathon

It’s summer blockbuster season already, and even I saw Dune Part 2 in a theater; my first time in one since before the pandemic. Most of the trailers were variations on existing properties. More than the usual beating intellectual properties to death, there’s a trend of maudlin revivals that take themselves way too seriously. If it’s not in one already, the next Ghostbusters movie will reveal Slimer (AKA Onionhead) has a tragic backstory that it’s the ghost of a child who died from a famine and that’s why it loves hot dogs so much.

There are lots of good movies still being made, but this is the season for garbage. I like garbage too! But not as much as I love to complain.
