1. The Lobster - 6
2. Manchester by the Sea - 9
3. St. Vincent - 7
4. American Ultra - 6
5. It Follows - 6

6. The Neon Demon - 6

This film is so beautiful and weird, but so very ponderously long.  It's worth it for the bananas final half hour.

7. The Founder - 6

Something was just off with this.  It plays like a sterile retelling of events rather than the dramatization it is.  Spend the first half gaining sympathy for Ray Kroc, then the last half showing you why he is not deserving of any sympathy.  The dichotomy just doesn't work very well.

8. Bad Moms - 7

Pretty much what you want and expect it out of this.  Not a ton of big laughs, but Kristen Bell was really good.

9. I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House - 3

Kinda hated it.  Tries to build atmospheric, spooky scares... But the payoff and reveal isn't even that scary.  It literally put me to sleep, had to go back and rewatch about twenty minutes of it... During which not much happens.  The Gothic atmosphere never really comes together for me.

Looks like it's going to be a La La Land-kinda evening, come Oscar night.

Very happy to see my No. 1 movie of the year (Hell or High Water) get several nods, including "Best Picture".

1. HAIL, CAESAR - 01/01/17 - cable - I really liked this one, especially since I still had LA LA LAND in my head. I like when Hollywood turns the lens on itself, especially if it's pointed directly at its golden age.
2. MIDNIGHT SPECIAL - 01/01/17 - cable - It is really hard to take your eye off of Michael Shannon when he is on screen. Homedude is magnetic.
3. LOVE THE COOPERS - 01/03/17 - cable - This was just nonsense. But, I liked a couple of things about it, but not enough to recommend it. It definitely won't become a must-watch Christmas movie.
4. EDDIE THE EAGLE - 01/02/17 - cable - I always love a good OLYMPIC DREAM movie. I even love the bad ones. (I'm looking at you, Mitch Gaylord.)
5. MISS SHARON JONES! - 01/07/17 - Netflix - Bittersweet to watch this now, but it was good to spend some time with Miss Jones.
6. BRIGHT LIGHTS: STARRING CARRIE FISHER AND DEBBIE REYNOLDS - 01/08/17 - HBO - Also bittersweet but lovely.
7. TRUTH AND LIES: THE MENENDEZ BROTHERS - 01/08/17 - NBC - Apparently I was on a documentary/real life kick last weekend. I had forgotten a lot of things about this case. I don't think I ever knew about Lyle wearing a hairpiece.
8. HIDDEN FIGURES - 01/17/17 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/va_vacious - A feel good time at the movie theatre, especially with a packed house (ON A TUESDAY NIGHT!). Great cast and a story that definitely needed to be told. The movie that STEM has needed for a long time. It even got me excited about Math(s) - AND I HATE MATH!
9. KILL BILL VOL. 1 - 01/22/17 - STARZ w/The Greg - repeat viewing - That bamboo water fountain gets me every time. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
10. KILL BILL VOL. 2 - 01/23/17 - STARZ w/The Greg - repeat viewing - Elle's reaction to being coated in Bud's dip cup slime is priceless.

What time is that TayFo? I've been meaning to go there, but haven't gotten there yet.

As a complete aside, I did go to the brand new Queen City Brewing microbrewery this past weekend. Despite its name, it actually located in Blue Ash (where I live). It's very small, but the brew was tasty  8)

So the Beer Heroes got the barrel rolling with some of the classic crew. I think there were pictures, but I didn't take any of them.
This week we begin our five year journey touring the brew pubs of the Greater Cincinnati area.
This week: Nine Giant in Pleasant Ridge on Thirstday at 7 PM!
