Sometimes in the morning it may seem that you woke up in the wrong place. multiverse. Let’s take Wednesday for example. That morning, just a few hours after the premiere, it became known that Top Shooter: Maverick— a sequel more than 35 years after its predecessor — received a five-minute applause at the Cannes Film Festival. Five minutes! In Cannes! Look, I’m sure the movie is great, but after seeing the crowd, let’s just say, prestigious It’s surprising that a French film festival is hailing a series that is still something of a sizzling reel for US imperialism. Moreover, the festival gave Tom Cruise – the guy who likes to shoot point-blank –Palme d’Or. What’s happening?

None of this says that I don’t like it Best shooteror Tom Cruise. Also, I doubt that anyone in Cannes cares about public opinion when it comes to choosing festival participants. But waking up in a world where the sequel to my favorite movie when I was 10 gets rave applause at a festival that usually honors shit like The tree of Life and Crime novel a little bewildering. Best shooter! Quentin Tarantino made a name for himself by calling the original film an allegory of homosexuality. (Believe me, it’s a compliment.) It’s a cinematic timeline that I can live by.

Maybe that’s why it’s so overwhelming. Though his flaws are obvious to me now, Best shooter it’s a terribly interesting and rather heartbreaking film. Nothing has inspired people to become US Navy pilots so much. This is certainly what the filmmakers and the US government wanted. Tony Scott (rest he) staged it to hell. But something so ingrained in pop culture is hard to follow. The wait to continue can be agonizing, wishing for something that can never live up to expectations. fans to want loving things but fearing their failure, especially for something like Maverickthat have been put off for years due to Covid-19, could make us all look for them with one open eye.

Talking about things better seen with the eyes closedFirst trailer for Marvel’s new Disney+ show. She-Hulk dropped this week. Unlike Mavericka sequel that had something to justify, She-Hulk had a lot of potential that seems unrealized. Apparently loosely based on the comic book of the same name, the new series follows Jennifer Walters, a 30-year-old lawyer who is also, yes, the green Hulk. (Full title, I’m not kidding, She-Hulk Attorney at Law.) It has all the serums you need: Mark Ruffalo as the Smart Hulk, a mixture of action and comedy, and Tatiana Maslany (Black orphan) starring. It should be good! But judging by the trailer, it looks like someone mistook the script for Ellie McBeal rebooted, replaced some proper names and added science. There is an extended scene about She-Hulk’s failed date attempts. (Tinder is cool when you’re green, amirit?) Trailers can’t cram everything in, but man, he looks cringed.

But let’s face it, I’m going to take a look. Even She-Hulk it’s terrible, okay, disappointment is part of the fandom. The same goes for Maverick. Even if it didn’t get better reviews than Alex Garland’s new film, I would still get tickets to the premiere. The desire to love things has led to the fear of guns that is pretty much a fanatic of anything these days, especially now that anything even remotely nostalgic is mined for new revenue. This struck me the most. At a time when disaster was expected, something that could have easily failed managed to break out of the danger zone.
