Movie Meltdown – Rebel Moon: Head Cheese
Sam Drog returns… as we adamantly argue both sides of Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire.
And while we’re trying to pick out our favorite Trapper Keepers, we also delve into… Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Lisa Frank, it’s an Oliver Stone critique of American foreign policy mixed with a zany Disney brain switch movie in Cambodia, if I came out of a vacuum, Man of Steel, taste vs style, Star Wars, when we go to Gladiator planet, if you like that story you’ll see it dressed up in different ways, Michael Bay, Kill Bill, a unified vision, an army of art directors and designers, towing the company line, watching video games, visually striking emotionally shallow movies, Alan Moore, throwing talent to the sarlacc pit, Heavy Metal, intensified reality, anime style, J.J. Abrams, Flash Gordon, nobody gets to retire, a hodgepodge call back to every sci fi thing you’ve ever seen, Netflix blockbusters, Army of the Dead, the desperation of content creators, David Goyer, a chicken pot pie of cultural references, Slim Pickens writing the atom bomb down, an unhealthy relationship with a filmmaker, Seven Samurai, we wanna forgive, Anthony Hopkins robot, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Tarantino’s directing style, a victim of his success, George Lucas, very presumptuous, Sucker Punch, watching concept art, space orifices and the impending Snyder cut.
Spoiler Alert: Random spoilers for “Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire”, watch it beforehand… if you want to.
“Man, Zack Snyder underlines, highlights, italicizes and puts fifteen exclamation points, in all caps – on everything he does.”
