Endgame. Love fest for the fans but still amazing. If you’re not a MCU fan, stay away.
The Accountant was good. Have to pay attention through out.
Bad Times at the El Royale
Saw it a couple nights ago. I had never heard of it until someone recommended it.
It's sort of a modern film noir. Set in a hotel that straddles the NV/CA border. A pretty good cast, and an interesting story that isn't always what it seems.
Yeah that was a great movie. I saw it on a delta flight and had to watch again when I got home .
Spotlight was good. I had to watch it for a journalism class. 97% on RT
2 simple words and the start of one of the great scenes in American movie history, “the walk”.
50 years old now, “The Wild Bunch”.
I hated that movie, but it was well done and creative. I just can't enjoy movies where every character is a pretty awful human being. Hated Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, too. I admit, I watch movies to be entertained, thrilled, scared., or otherwise transported from the already dark-enough real world Vulgarity and graphic violence, to me, aren't entertaining, but if they're a necessary part of an entertaining or otherwise valuable movie (Platoon, for one), then I have no objection. When they are almost the REASON for the movie, I'm out.
I'll show my juvenility (if that's a word)...the two movies I've seen the most times are "Roadhouse" (I think Sam Elliott is awesome....could listen to him read the phone book and not get bored...and, as another poster or two has already said, Hero was great) and "Point Break" (the first one w/ Swayze...the remake completely lost the fun/playful feel of parts of the original). Neither are weighty cinematic works of art by any stretch, but there's thrills, laughs, sorrows, triumphs over adversity, folks you can cheer, folks you can jeer....just rollicking thrill rides.
I have a hard time sitting through 3-hours of fantasy, but we’ll see.
Saw ‘Us’ a few weeks back. Story line could’ve been better, but it was alright. I definitely don’t see how it achieved such a high score on Rotten Tomatoes. I wouldn’t choose to see it again.
For sci-fi I liked “the thing”, not the original black and white, the one with Kurt Russel..
Goes by quickly
Yeah, I might go see it next weekend, we’ll see.
There’s even a Farmall tractor for @Ted DuPuis
Chamberlain apparently did make at least one significant contribution to Britain's success in the war however: According to a documentary I saw, while he was prime minister he played a significant role in bringing about the modernization of Britain's aircraft industry, which enabled them to hold off the Germans in the Battle of Britain.
That was so bad it was more comedic than anything. Now when we see a bad movie my wife whispers, "don't forget to set the altimeter"....a reference to a line in this show.
Twentysome years ago my wife and I were perusing new releases at Blockbuster and couldn't really find anything. Another couple heard us talking and told us "Get Reservoir Dogs! The best movie we've ever seen!"
The worse movie my wife and I have ever seen. Worse than Kill Bill, and that's saying something.
We fired up Netflix last night and watched “Bathtubs Over Broadway”. The trailer is about 4 posts up.
It was a lot of fun. It could have been about 10 minutes shorter, though. It was a neat story by a guy that used to make fun of people that were involved in making industrial or corporate marketing productions. Then he got interested in the back stories and ended up on a really interesting quest.
Check it out.
The worst movie I ever saw was a gem called Laserblast. Why I sat through the whole thing, I'll never know. Other than the utter pointlessness of it, the most memorable thing about it was a brief moment about halfway through the film when one of the characters actually expressed a genuine human emotion. After that, the film went back to being pointless again for the remainder of it.
A close second was a film called The Draughtsman's Contract. It was set in 17th century England, and I got sucked in by a reviewer's ravings about the sumptuousness of it, but it struck me as being dominated by pointless crudity towards women.
As was, I suspect, 17th century England.
Saw "End Game" last night. It was really good, better than I expected. I'm glad I saw it on the IMAX vs waiting to Netflix it.
Here's one that might be worth checking out:
"The Cold Blue"
"Director Erik Nelson’s affecting documentary mixes restored archival footage of B-17 missions with narration from the men who flew them."
Set up to see this on Thursday! Sounds excellent and goes along with a book I’m reading - Masters of the Air.
It's in IMAX at my local theater on Thursday, but I don't think I'll be able to catch it.
Saw Endgame over the weekend. Both of us thought it was utterly predictable, with one or two minor exceptions. Plus, not being comic book people, we had no freaking clue who half the people were. Really, we only saw it because we'd seen the last one, and we only watched that because the Guardians of the Galaxy were in it, and we love those characters.
This weekend it'll be John Wick 3. Wish we'd seen that instead, to be honest.
I saw John Wick 3 this past weekend, and while it was good, I thought the first two were a little better and had better stories. Still worth seeing on the big screen, though.
It's on Netflix. Pretty good movie about the two Texas Rangers that hunted Bonnie and Clyde.
I won't spoil the ending.
Did they get Bonnie and Clyde?
I remember seeing the Beatty/Dunaway movie when I was 11 or 12.
I just finished watching ‘The Disappearance of Christina’ an older flick (1993).
EXCELLENT movie! The only thing that I didn’t like was the cliffhanger ending. I definitely recommend if you like mystery / thriller movies.
It can be viewed in full for free here :
Yeah, that’s be almost as bad as spoiling the end of Titanic.
What?! Did something happen at the end of those?
Let’s just say there won’t be a sequel.
American Pie Band Camp is pretty good.
John Wick 3 picks right up where 2 left off. There is lots of hinting toward the next chapter, and I was left wishing they would make it more obvious. I know what's coming...
Yeah, but AP 2 was awful.
Found another one you all might like:
The Death of Stalin
It's a crazy story about the power struggle after Stalin died. Even though it's crazy, it's not very far off from the real thing. Steve Buscemi is Nikita Khrushchev, sort of a combination you'd never think would work but it does.
"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"
Went out to the theater last night, a rarity for me, and I'm glad I did. Highly recommended. Quentin Tarantino knows he's expected to have some over-the-top violence, and he doesn't disappoint. You know it's going to happen, you pretty much know when it's going to happen, but you won't know how.
Watched "The Informant" last night on Netflix. Based on the true story of an FBI informant exposing price fixing at ADM Corp, in the early 90's. I didn't expect it to be so funny. Matt Damon as the informant and Scott Bakula as the FBI agent do a pretty good job. Not nearly the docudrama the teaser leads you to believe.
Wife and I did not care for it, was about 2 hours too long.
We watched the Professor and the Madman this weekend. Was actually a really good movie.
We also watched Alita. It too was really good and a change from the typical movie. It was a little teeny bopper though at times but overall wife and I enjoyed it.
Watched Dunkirk while waiting for the wx to clear on the way to Oshkosh. An OK movie, it was worth the watch but only just barely. Lots of Spitfire action.
