Congrats to Avengers Endgame for being the movie to finally top Avatar at the box office.

Anyone else seen The Farewell? One of my favorite films in quite awhile. Awkwafina really shows off her acting abilities beyond her normal comedic talents. The film itself takes you on an emotional roller coaster while navigating the divides between east/west cultures, as well as what unites us. Cannot recommend it enough.

I saw It: Chapter 2 on Saturday night in a mostly full theater. I have never seen so many phones out in a movie before. At least a couple people filming. One person took a photo with the f**king flash on.

At least Bill Hader was good in the film.

^ that's crazy!

and really why I only go to 1st run films at Alamo Drafthouse these days. no Phone rule, they catch you with your phone out, or texting during film? 1 warning, then your butt is GONE from the theater.

I saw "It: Chapter 2" yesterday, and my take on it?

I liked it, but I didn't LOVE it.

I know they trimmed it from 4 hour 1st cut to the just under 3 hour film we got . . . but it was still too long. It needed a good 25 minutes still cut from it. (in particular the Henry Bowers stuff, shoulda been left on cutting room floor or saved for special edition. Didn't add anything to the film other than running time).

the final battle needed at least 1 more script polish, as it was still confusing and simply doesn't work - ironic considering one of the running gags is that as a writer, Bill doesn't know how to end a story.

oh, don't get me wrong - what DOES work? works really well. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that the two best shockers in part 2 were teased in the final trailer - but the trailer didn't give away the "good" parts.

a few more Jump Scares than in part 1. . overall, it's a good film, but it's not a GREAT one. Which I think it could have been with some editing.

now, bring on the special release director's cut of parts 1 & 2 together, that will run 9 hours :)

I saw Joker last night and that was way different than any other comic book movie I've ever seen. Phoenix nailed the performance and the movie makes you feel uncomfortable throughout (and that's a good thing for me at least).

Jo Jo Rabbit

We loved it! Total surprise and both the kid who plays Jo Jo and the actor playing "the Jew" should be nommed for an Oscar. And as well, Sam Rockwell....nominate him too for Supporting Roll.

I've never sat through a movie like this, laughing one minute, then totally stunned in silence in another. Really hard to describe it without giving a lot away. So, I won't.

Go see it...it will surprise you. Pretty sure it will. :b :b 9.8/10

(There is no perfect 10, to me. My 9.9/10 is "Chicago".)

We just came back from seeing FROZEN II earlier...and I am honestly conflicted about it.

This sequel was definitely story driven. Very intensely at times. The songs were strong, a couple were fun. But...

My problem was that David and I were in the theater with three other pairs of people, and a few children. All spread out, throughout the big theater. We were front and center, of the front section's back row (if that makes sense).

Stuff that was obviously funny, I found hearing myself laughing out loud and nobody else. Wierd. Then there was the emotional stuff, and I found myself so isolated from the movie....because there were only a few people in the audience. And children so young, I kept wondering how the heck they ever got anything out of it, except for maybe, Olaf? Still, felt off to me.

So, I want to see it again, but this time, NOT in IMAX. In 3D and on a regular sized screen, downtown. I actually did that with the first Frozen. I saw that one twice, because I just loved that Elsa Transformation on the big screen.

Anyway we'll see, till then... To Be Continued.



SPOILER ALERT







Although the revival of Olaf was a real tear-jerker, to us <grin>.

My gf and I and her kids went and seen Knives Out, awesome movie and highly recommend it. I thought I had it figured out by the end but I was completely wrong. I was sitting there for like 10 mins after going over it in my mind like what the heck.... one of the best movies of the year.
