It has a decent amount of humor in it, including the way it ends.
I guess Sammy L Jackson's Glass taking comic books so seriously is what really nudged my opinion in this direction. He has his monologues about comic books (where he goes full Jules), the art of comic books and of course the way it motivates his actions. Bruce Willis' more reluctant hero isn't nearly as unbelievable (besides his powers ofc).

I just saw a commercial for a movie with Brendan Frasier playing a really fat dude and it's called The Whale and I think that's hilarious.

Triangle of Sadness

Easily the most fun I had with a movie this year. Go into this as blind as you can. It has one of the best 30 minutes of raucus choas I have ever seen put to film. My mouth was agape. It has Woody Harrelson chewing up scenery. It was a RIOT.

Watched it after reading this. Have been meaning to for some time now. The movie rocks.

See How They Run

If Knives Out showed the world how a whodunit done in a Wes Anderson-ish style could be great, this movie shows the world how lame that formula can be in the wrong hands. Easily one of the worst movies I've seen in 2022, doubly so because of the wasted potential of the excellent cast.

Definitely on my watch list, it is weirdly hard to find though. I think I could watch it right now but I have to buy it for $20?
