I thought The Rocketeer was decent enough, especially for Timothy Dalton doing his best Errol Flynn impression.

I watched the Papillon remake last night. Utterly pointless, and inferior to the 1973 version. Stick to that instead.

I'm not sure why they would bother remaking Papillon unless the director or producer involved really wanted to. It's a semi-forgotten film now, and I guarantee that most of the fans of that film are 55+, which is hardly the target demographic for cinema.

It also wasn't made by a major studio, and the budget was smaller than the original when accounting for inflation. This all suggests to me that the people who worked on it probably really felt there was a need for it.

I can't speak on the end result because I haven't seen it, but it doesn't strike me as being a cynical exercise.

Terminator: Dark Fate.

Absolutely shit. Not because it's a female-lead movie, but without giving away too many spoilers (although, I suspect a few of you may already know them anyway), it completely retcons the events and main focus of the whole Terminator mythos in an extremely ham-fisted and cack-handed way not seen since The Simpsons retconned it's own mythos with the episode "That 90's Show". It also feels like Arnie and Hamilton are only back to lend some weight to the movie but they're both used poorly. The antagonist isn't bad - it just feels like a T1000 knock-off and with worse graphics.

One Fist.
