× Fuck Ponyo.
× Kewl minimalistic character designs. This style isn't as realist based as the OG so it doesnt have those kewl moments of "Oooohh that look real" but it's still nice to look at. Especially seen in the dope fights.
× Semi well told memento-esque cyber thriller. Better execution woulda been neat but whatevs. I was just as lost plot wise wit dis as I was for the innitial watch of the OG but I think wat confused me most about…

× Nice thick and cripsy film stock. Fun sleazy color palet. CG mostly holds up. Cool camera flourishes. Okay action...but really, like REALLY BAD STORYTELLING. Like, porn pathetic. Seriously. Bleugh.

This was a mixed bag. I have many thoughts:
• One day an early draft of the Meg Lefauve and Nicole Perlman script will leak on reddit and I'll die happy.
• Mendelsons makeup was cake layer thick. I think it gave him a lisp.
• Marvel, PLEASE RETIRE THE ARI ALEXA, AND WOULD IT KILL YOU TO SPICE UP THE SATURATION?!?
• The Fury CGI was fine but a bit distracting. Might've been cooler just to cast a younger…
