2:04 Ooh, they look like Gaga Girls!
3:18 What’s with the enormous shoes?
6:08 “Time will tell.” “Time has told.”
9:29 Medieval England, Iowa.
14:42 It’s quite fun that they separated for privacy but still say “marry us”.

37:34 He only needed two questions, to get to a tank.
42:00 “There’s no way I can do infinity pushups.” You wanna try a Les Mills class.
45:59 I don’t want to sound old but that must have been so bad for them, filming in those low corridors.
47:05 Battleships!
49:20 Playing Death at board games really should be the whole film.
59:32 You have to wonder what drugs were being taken when this was written.

1:12:20 Those are some creepy AF robots.

Thoughts

This is an enigma of a movie - I have never know a film that I loathed so much and yet had something so wonderful in it, yes, I’m talking about Death. Every scene that Death is in is brilliant, he’s a fab addition to the movie, but it just means that every scene he’s not in is a disappointment.

It’s a mess, tone is all over the place, there doesn’t really seem to be a point to it, they do some crazy stuff and, yea, not a fan, really. Glad to have watched it to be able to see the third one though, as the trailer looks much better.

Rating: 1 / 5
