11.02.21Netflix One habit I particularly don't like of myself is that I'll get in a movie to watch a movie and proceed to spend the next two hours browsing all the streaming sites, to say nothing of the 1200 dvds on the shelf 6 feet away, in search of the perfect movie that fits all of my vague-ass criteria. Gotta be new, gotta keep me awake, can't be obviously crap, can't be too thinky or require too much mental exertion... and by the time I get a short list of meh candidates (which are probably all fine films), it's already 2:30am and I won't be able to finish anything longer than 90 minutes.

Such is the case last night when I found 3 movies on hbo max but made a last minute decision to watch this instead for... I don't really know why. I suppose I thought there was a slim chance that the weird offshoot prequel to the terrible movie would be better than the awful tentpole movie it's splintering off from? But really I should've known better. While this movie is technically competent, there's no reason for its existence. The one cool thing they could've done (really diving deep on safe cracking) they turned into a series of Fast and Furious CG close-ups of random gears and cylinders.

While I did probably like this more than Army of the Dead, it doesn't mean it's good. Pretty much felt like a waste of time. I should've watched one of the others instead.
