Fear Street 1994 is pretty good. Starts out abit too cheesy and the usual teenagers crap, but after around 20+ minutes mark it becomes non-stop thrilling chase.
Highly recommended.

Can't wait for Part 2 next week.

As far as I can understand, there are few genre within the Gundam franchises. There are those adolescent themed robot cartoons to matured war thriller themed. This is the latter one. Don't go in expecting wall to wall robot fights but more of character driven plotlines. It's still from perspective of two factions fighting each other. One kinda working in the shadow while earth federation still at ruling earth with bureaucracy of corruption. There are only two robot fights and they are depicted from ground level. Very much like the first Godzilla movie where you get to experience trails of destruction left by the behemoth. It's something you don't usually seen in Gundam. I did enjoy it very much but knowing Gundam series it will veer off to mumbo jumbo new type vs old humanity as always. Enjoy it while it last.

it's the UC timeline gundam, which most of the stories and plots are more matured and "adult" oriented

I would strongly recommend anyone to watch the previous UC's Gundam series in advance to understand the world, the past history and the lore leading to this Hathaway
all Gundam I, II, III, and Char's Counterattack are released recently in Netflix as well

if you got time, I recommended the Gundam Unicorn series as well, just a short 7 episodes, which is the story shortly after Char's Counterattack, but it doesn't relate much with the Hathaway

Urghhh...Part 2 is terrible. Characters are a bunch of unlikable little shits, the kills are basic and boring and it took way too long for something to happen. And the egregious use of licensed music is seriously off putting this time around.

Really hope Part 3 will be better. At the very least it won't feature pop culture songs so that should be an upgrade.

There is a lot of details I love about this film.

Example the opening scene in Hauzen flight:
It shows how luxury space travel is like (how drink in the glass and toilet design are made for space flight).

Some attention the production made which least talked about.

And the City of Davao, Philipines, the Jollibee reminds me about my trip to PH !!

And look at this comparison:
Reddit - Gundam Hathaway Davao City Real life comparison

(P/S: the Lounge of the airport does have some similarity to KLIA1's MAS Golden Satelite Lounge)

And I don't think this trilogy will end like what you expected (if they followed the novel faithfully, the ending is pretty depressing)

Basically this standalone movie is to flesh out Ashin the character that planted in season 2 cliffhanger finale. She's the next big villain. It's engaging but not mind blowing and fans of Kingdom will have an idea where season 3 will go.

Don't watch the full trailer so you don't need to know more than you should. It's gory, twisty and intense throughout. It's not just thrilling violence but some affecting emotional scenes of the mother and son. A good double feature to go with Ashin of The North to satisfy your horror movie fix.
