Sonic the Hedgehog: I’m so glad they got rid of Tooth Sonic because that would not have worked with how silly this movie is.
Men in Black: International: “Are you suggesting we try a weaponized star for fun?”; The big problem with a lot of movies over the last decade or so was the complete lack of character development. Whatever studio pressure caused it, movie writers seem to have figured out how to compensate. Things still move a little too fast, but they manage to wedge enough development in to make it a watchable sci-fi action movie.
Spider-Man: Far From Home: “You sent Nick fury to voicemail? You don’t send Nick Fury to voicemail.” I haven’t exactly watched MCU stuff in order, so the last time I saw Spiderman he was riding a rocket to space. I’m not well-versed in Spider-Man lore, but I knew what was coming because I had a Spider-Man game for the SNES with Mysterio. And I’ll leave it there to avoid spoilers.
