When I was a kid, I ordered the sea monkeys from the back of a comic book and waited patiently for them to arrive. When they finally got to me, I was so excited to tear into the package and quickly add water to create these new pets for myself. When I realized it was little more than some kind of funky water algae and NOT the family of sea monkeys I had anticipated, the disappointment was immense.
THAT was what it was like watching Morbius. Just no. The movie was terrible. What was it? Drama? Super Hero movie? Horror? I have no idea but it was none of those. Aside from some pretty nifty CGI, I saw nothing in this movie that made me glad they made it. There was plenty to make me sad I paid to see it. The writing was not good. I did enjoy the origin part of the screenplay but the story itself was juvenile and I was disappointed that, yet again, Hollywood had “pussified” the vampire, making them appear weak and romantic when they are supposed to be MONSTERS.
Maybe I expected too much, since I grew up a Morbius fan. But this movie did not look nor feel like a Marvel universe piece.
Jared Leto did a great job playing the part of Michael Morbius the scientist and the vampire. But even he couldn’t save Morbius the movie.

Things are not always projected. You just reset and move on. Thank you for your realistic commentary… and, btw, I got those stupid sea monkeys as well. Know the feeling.
