96. The Spy Who Dumped Me (Kenwood Theater)
97. Mission Impossible - Fallout (Kenwood Theater)
98. The Meg (Kenwood Theater)
99. The Cakemaker (Mariemont Theater)
100. Never Goin' Back (Esquire Theater)
101. Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood (Esquire Theater)

I've already commented on Spike Lee's latest joint.

The best of this bunch is surely The Cakemaker, an under-the-radar relationship drama from Israel that is oh so good. israeli business man with frequent travel to Berlin starts seeing a guy (who is the cakemaker), while also married to a woman in Jerusalem with a young son. After a year of this, the Israeli guy dies in an accident. His Berlin lover, desperate to find out more, travels to Jerusalem, where he befriends the now-widow (but without disclosing he was her husband's lover)... Heavy duty stuff, but really really good. Check it out!

Never Goin' Back is from up-and-coming writer-director (and long-time actress) Augustine Frizzell. We follow two 17 yr. old HS drop-out girls in Texas as they dream of going on vacation to the Galveston beaches, but meanwhile must put up with shitty jobs. Quite crude so if that's not your thing, don't bother. Instant classic line: "Dude, I puked him to death!" (when one of the girls accidentally throws up on an older guy). Yea, it's kinda like that. I couldn't help but laugh.

The Meg, a/k/a Jaws on steroids, proves that bigger isn't better. On the contrary (less is always more!).

Repeat viewing of MI Fallout. What a movie!

Scotty is a disappointing documentary about Scotty Bowers, the king-pimp to gay and lesbian Hollywood stars in the 40s and 50s. It's just not that good, so don't bother.

59. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle


The Last Boyscout: Had no idea what this was...kinda thought it was something in vein of Boyz in the Hood or something. I don't know what I was thinking, but I surprised to find that it was right up my alley in many ways. Ultra violent - possibly too violent for a film today - but I got past that and found it enjoyable.

The Fast and the Furious: Taco and Waffles asked to watch the sequel, 2 Cat 2 Curious when we finished.

Jumanji: Enjoyable! I really liked the kids in the beginning and wanted more of them, but then found myself liking the stars too. Karen Gillan's outfit was fantastically 'video game.' And she looked fantastic, too. Silly jokes that we enjoyed generally.

adding

92 ● The Mummy (2017)
Jesus fucking titty christ this was bad. Jeseus fucking titty christ I have no idea why I didn't abandon it.
93 ● American Folk
Road movie. Hippy girl and guitar-toting musician hook up after they are both denied air travel in the days following 9/11. (Horrible conceit). Borrow a beaten-up campervan and drive it across country. Sing songs along the way to make themselves feel better. As gruesome and tedious as it sounds
94 ● Denial
Holocaust denier feels defamed by history author. Takes her to court. You'll never guess how it ends. Well, you can, and you'd be right. Big names, some good acting, but cliched courtroom drama with the usual twists and turns.
95 ● The Commuter
A preposterous "Liam Neeson Vehicle" which is quite gripping for two acts, then completely loses the plot in the final one. It's as if the producers were initially denied a big budget and then someone in accounts went "do you know what, let's spunk $100m worth of CGI on this otherwise quite sedate movie, and suddenly turn Liam from a 65 year old thoughtful accounts clerk into a punching, fighting, killing machine who can heal from full punches to the face in seconds"
96 ● I, Daniel Blake
UTTERLY mesmorising. Not for everyone's tastes admittedly, but this gritty drama about two people caught up in the 'benefits trap' of modern-day Britain is all of sad, funny and 'scream at the TV' anger-inducing with every scene. Ken ("Kes") Loach captures the frustration and mundanity of those living below the breadline in England magnificently.
97 ● The Mountain Between Us
Mountain not tall enough to prevent Idris Elba and Kate Winslet from possible career suicide
98 ● The Leisure Seeker
I enjoyed this more than I perhaps should. Mainly because of Helen Mirren. But Donald Sutherland was good too.
99 ● The Incredibles (BD)
Blu-Ray re-watch in advance of waiting for "2" from the library system
100 ● I, Tonya
Yet ANOTHER biopic that feels unnecessary. Yes, let's glorify and somehow deify these piece-of-shit human beings.

adding

101 ● Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool
Annette Bening still has "it", alongside a plethora of other big names in this 'based on a real story' tale about the unlikely relationship between an aging American Academy Award-winning actress and a British bit-part actor. Nicely scripted and just the right side of mawkish
102 ● Isle of Dogs
OK, but not great, Wes Anderson offering. However, maybe like most of his work this needs a second (or more) viewing to be fully appreciated?
103 ● Please Stand By
Bless her, Dakota Fanning does her best to portray an autistic woman who runs away to file her entry in a script-writing competition, but it never quite 'works' IMHO. Remember "Adam" from a few years back? It feels like a female version of that.
104 ● Detroit
The latest addition to Kathryn Bigelow's canon. Once I came to terms with the handheld camera style of filming, I got dragged into this movie account of a real 1967 event during the Detroit riots. Sickening for the best part, if I'm being honest. Sad that it still feels America has not learned its lesson over half-a-decade later
105 ● Tully
Dully
106 ● Early Man
Nick Park in "disappointing animated movie shocker". Nothing story, crappy script, seen-'em-all-before characters and a generally lacklustre experience. Shame.
107 ● Crown Heights
Man wrongly convicted of murder. Ends up serving life in the slammer. Brother spends every waking hour trying to prove his innocence. You know where this going, you hop aboard the drama train regardless
108 ● Book Club
I could not be any MORE the wrong demographic for this movie (Being an old fart aside of course). But Jane Fonda and Diane Keaton for the win
109 ● Blockers
Let's be crude, because we can be. Let's fail to be funny, because we can be that too.
110 ● The Big Sick
Made me laugh several times. Cracking script and some great perfomances made this something of a joy. (American) Culture Shock at its finest

Re: 50 Movies in 2018
« Reply #245 on: September 03, 2018, 01:48:46 PM »


This is my 11th year tracking movies! Yikes! (Nevertheless, here I go)

1. Christmas in Connecticut from 1945, a magazine writer has created the proto-Martha Stewart life, and a wounded soldier just wants a perfect Christmas in Connecticut with her and her (imaginary) family. Wacky hijinks ensue. The leads were all in their late 30s/early 40s, which made this really interesting to me!
2. What If- Dan Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver. It's your basic rom-com, but nice enough to watch while cruising the internet.
3. I, Tonya Robbie and Stan are a bit too old to be playing 20-23 year olds, but their performances are excellent, and Allison Janney stole every scene she was in. Social commentary= excellent, skating= well, that could have been handled better.
4. Star Trek Beyond- second time around. I really like how Simon Pegg's character calls Jayda (Sophia Boutella) "lassie" all the time. I really liked how that relationship was created to be father/child rather than love interest.
5. Landline Really, really good cast. Tightly plotted movie, and they felt like actual people who make both good and bad decisions.
6. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri It's been nominated for Best Score- I just remember thinking the movie was so quiet. Huh. McDormond was excellent, and Woody Harrelson was, too.
7. New In Town- Renee Z. and Harry Connick, Jr. She's a corporate shill, he's the union rep for a dairy factory in Minnesota. It could be better.
8. Zoolander 2 This would have been really funny about 10 years ago. Sadly, it's not 10 years ago.
9. Good Dick I watched because Jason Ritter was in it. Well, it was interesting- Ritter's character essentially stalks the female lead (neither receive names in the movie), and won't take no for an answer. This is really not cute, or sweet, no matter how puppy-dog charming Ritter is. It's time to revisit what is acceptable movie meet-cute behavior.
10. Boy Taika Waititi's directoral debut. Set in New Zealand in the 1980s, from the perspective of a 10 year old boy. Growing up and learning that his father isn't the hero he thinks he is. It also involves a fantasty/dream sequence in which Waititi is dressed as peak Michael Jackson.
11. Captain America: The Winter Soldier- (first viewing of the year!) Saw with my dad, who has seen none of the Marvel movies. He had many questions.
12. The Shape of Water Very del Toro, I would have liked it more if the people next to me hadn't been laughing through most of the movie. Absolutely beautiful, needed more of the creature.
13. Paddington 2: The Paddingtonian This was absolute sweetness, and delightful, and everyone in it should receive all the awards. Also, how do they do such good CGI? I buy that the bear is real.

(Side note: Does Sally Hawkins have something in her contract about having to swim in her movies? Because she was very water- adjacent in both of these!)
14. Wonder Woman- so glad I saw it on the big screen to begin with- the CGI gets funny on a tv.
15. Cars 3 I didn't see Cars 2, but it didn't seem to matter. I mostly had it on to occupy time. It was harmless.
16. The Decoy Bride- re-watch for something cute. Extra points for David Tennant.
17. Captain America: Civil War- Getting ready for Black Panther! Still #TeamBucky
18. Black Panther Afternoon matinee with Lando and Victor. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and was totally hyped when I walked out of the theater. The costuming and set design are phenomenal, and the cast is 100% perfect. It works very well, with a solid script and good plot. It is a good movie, not just a good comic book movie. (Also, I want to grow up to be Shuri, T'Challa's sister) If you go, stay through the credits- there are two in credit scenes.
19. BFG Big Friendly Giant- Spielberg directed version of the Roald Dahl book. I kept thinking how much my niece and nephew would love it. Charming.
20. Room Very good. I don't think I could be a parent and let my 5/6 year old act in a movie like this. I know movies are shot out of order, and things are cut in different ways, so Tremblay would have been kept from the adult content, I hope, but it seems like it could have long-term effects on a kid.
21. Logan Lucky Very fun, very light, and Daniel Craig as Joe Bang was a delight.
22. Annihilation I'm not sure if I liked this - I know I didn't dislike it, but it was very *something* It definitely made me think.
23. Captain America: The Winter Soldier It was still in the Blu-Ray player, so I watched it again while messing around online.
24. To Wong Fu- Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar- For being 20 years old, it was a much kinder movie than I expected (I first saw it in the late '90s). John Leguizamo just about steals the movie from Patrick Swayze.
25. A Wrinkle in Time Solid kid movie, Storm Reid did a great job at Meg Murray, I liked Mindy Kaling for the first time ever, and it just needed a tiny bit more Chris Pine.
26. Hot Fuzz- wanted to watch something while waiting for friends. Their 13 year old thought it was great.
27. Hot Fuzz- 13 year old from above wanted to see it again- the "Best Movie Ever" he declared
28. Shaun of the Dead- had to follow up Hot Fuzz somehow!
29. Blockers I thought it would be dumb, but it was legit funny. I got free passes to a showing last night (yay!) and it was worth driving almost to Tucker to see. I laughed way more than I should have, and it is just fun.
30. Clue - with Lando at the Strand. The sound was not great, the cast looked like BABIES, but still all around enjoyable. Also, beer in the theater is an automatic win.
31. Despicable Me 3 Not quite despicable, not quite good, either. A little too much Steve Carrell .
32. Avengers: Infinity War Saw it opening weekend, and yes, I really liked it. It needed more T'Challa, and way more Shuri.
33. John Mulaney: New in Town I didn't like his sitcom, but I do like the standup.
34. John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City Hall Seriously, I like Mulaney a great deal.
35. Tig Nataro: Happy To Be Here She has a whole bit about her cat. It works for me.
36. Magic Mike- I was cleaning house, needed something entertaining.
37. Ibiza An honest to God Rom-Com! I will be watching it again, Richard Madden is easy on the eyes, and it's a wonderful movie about best friends, too.
38. Gifted Chris Evans in non-superhero mode. It's sweet,  but made me cry a few times.
39. Deadpool 2 It was fun, but I liked the first one better.
40. Oceans 8- Super fun, got to see it with Lando. Cate Blanchette had the most incredible hair.
41. Set It Up - Netflix. I see the return of the Rom-Com and I like it! It was cute, would be a good Saturday afternoon couch watch.
42. Solo Finally! It was enjoyable. Exactly what it was supposed to be- fun. I'd be ok with a Chewbacca movie, honestly.
43. Real Genius- I have no idea if this is actually a good movie or not, because I revert to my 13 year-old self and swoon over Val Kilmer.
44. African Queen- I don't think a movie like this could be made today. Hepburn and Bogart were really phenomenal.
45. The Princess Diaries- it's hot, summer, and this is the perfect antitdote.

46. Hannah Gadsby: Nanette Oof. This was brilliant, and hard, and funny.
47. Forgetting Sarah Marshall- puppet vampires, Russell Brand, I will never not watch.
48. W. Kamau Bell: Private School Negro has a whole bit on Doc McStuffins that I'm still thinking (and laughing) about.
49. Iliza Shlesinger: Elder Millineal I wasn't sure if I'd like this one, but she got funnier and more dead-on as the special progressed.
50. Thor: Ragnarok- the sound on my tv does not do justice for this movie. Still funny, still the best Thor movie.
51. To All the Boys I've Loved Before- such a sweet, easy little movie! It is going to be the perfect watch on a rainy afternoon comfort film for an entire generation.
52. The Last Jedi- Hey! It's on Netflix now! Upon re-watch, I don't like it nearly as much as I did in the theater. The story is disjointed
53. To All the Boys I've Loved Before- Yes, I liked it enough to watch a second time already. It's cute!
52. The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Society Lily James was just made for period pieces, wasn't she? It's a solid, entertaining film, and there were at least three Downton Abbey actors in it!
53. Crazy Rich Asians- such over the top fun, 90 minutes of a life so rich you can't fathom it was just about right. I'm glad to be back in Target land!

Re: 50 Movies in 2018
« Reply #246 on: September 03, 2018, 07:23:17 PM »


i moved to a small town north of ann arbor, they have a smallish theater: the lyon theater. ticket, popcorn, and drink for ~12 bucks combined. much better than the mega complexes where i remember paying 12 to get in and another 13 or so for popcorn and drinks.

1. gotcha! - 1985 spy movie with a young anthony edwards. a fun watch.
2. the mist - king novella made into a movie. worth your time if you've never seen it. darabont, who did the green mile and shawshank, then went on to do walking dead directed.
3. bewitched - nicole kidman is cute as a button, will ferrell didn't bother me.
4. black sabbath: the end of the end - documentary on the final tour
5. the brothers grimsby - sacha baron cohen's take on a spy movie sorta spoof. some of the humor was too juvenile for me, but overall pretty good. imagine a spy movie with some comedy thrown in.
6. burke and hare - simon peg and andy serkis couldn't save this stinker about the grave robbers/serial murderes in scotland ~1830's.
7. pandorum - sci fi thriller that didn't hold my attention, started playing on the computer during the 2nd half
8. idiocray - meh. thought this was some cult classic. didn't find it all that funny.
9. star wars -(lyon theater) the most recent one. entertaining. liked it.
10. get out - kinda figured it out fairly early on, but probably heard enough about it to help me. still a very good movie.
11. shaun of the dead - could be the greatest zombie movie ever
12. black panther (lyon theater) - can't say much more than what's already been said. enjoyed it.
13. saving private ryan
14. RAMPAGE! (lyon theater) turn off your brain, eat your popcorn. really liked this! the rock does a nice job; was fun to watch. worth 12 bucks.
15. avengers infinity war (lyon theater) - was entertaining, but i'm not a huge comic book/movie fan, so i didn't even know some of the characters. did hold my attention for 2.5 hours. i'll comment more in the appropriate thread.
16. death race 2 - don't bother. some kind of prequel for a video game tie-in, twisted metal, maybe? i'm logging it in so any of you don't lose 100 mins of your life. but maggie from the walking dead was the bad corporate woman. really overplayed barely dressed women. and unnecessary boobs. i'm all for some nudity to earn a R rating, but at least three times i went "did i really just see a topless woman for no reason?" i'll pass on any other death race movies, and there appear to be a few of them.
17. hidden figures - fantastic movie. worth all of accolades i had heard. worthy of watching. great performances and i really liked interjecting the movie against the civil rights movement. hard to believe segregation was still a thing ~50 years ago.
18 juan of the dead - (i thought i already posted this one) cuban zombie movie with interesting social commentary. the zombies were "dissidents" . english subtitles. worthy of watching once.
19. solo (lyon theater) - nice job continuing the back story of star wars. i'm sure i missed many of the easter eggs/tie-ins, but enjoyed it.
20. black sabbath: the end of the end - decent documentary of sabbath's last tour. damn, these guys are old. 69 or 70 all of them. rick wakeman's (of yes) kid played keyboards for them.
21. superhero movie - a police squad type of spoof of superhero movies. made me laugh a few times.
22. ocean's 8: amc west chester - ocean's 11 with the ladies. if you liked that series, you'll like this one too. i thought it was very good.
23,24 mission impossible 1 & 2: first time seeing these in years. dated spy movie from 96?? they used netscape! in 2, the villains accent was so hard to figure out, i really lost interest.
25. they live - john carpenter's "horror" movie about aliens that have already taken over society and can only be seen with special sunglasses. rowdy roddy piper with the best mullet ever.
26,27: pirates of the caribbean: dead man's chest & at worlds end - wow. that was a long way to go to finish the story told in two movies. not as good as i remembered, but they are 10 years old.
28. incredibles2 south lyon theater: if you liked the first, you'll like this one. jak-jak steals the movie!
29. the autopsy of jane doe: nice creepy movie about a father and son coroner team. at just under 90 minutes, it went by quickly.
30. eragorn -  decent dragon movie from 2006. cgi has aged well. enjoyed the dragon.
31. stand by me - ah, the old movie from my high school years. this one also has aged well.
32. race to witch mountain - the rock in a remake of a movie from my youth. gave cameos to the kids (who are adults now) from the original. it was entertaining and fun to watch on a day made to stay in with the AC cranked up.
33. the taking of pelham 123 - denzel and travolta facing off as good guy and bad guy. sucked me in.
BOND WEEK!
34. Dr. No - the very first bond. the gadgets are a bit dated, but ursula address is not
35. from russia with love - aged well enough. the plot gets a little convoluted but isn't that always the case with bond movies?
36. the spy who loved me - i remember this from my youth, watching on the tv in the living room.
37. goldfinger - one of the all time best bonds, but still hasn't aged well.
38. thunderball - never really loved this one.
39. you only live twice - oh boy. this one DID NOT age well at all. bond in japanese cosplay? the racism and mysogenisitic tendencies are very troubling outside of the time this was filmed.
40. diamonds are forever - aging sean connery loose in vegas? jimmy dean? i remember watching this one on the tv in my youth as well. had to leave before the end, parents didn't want me to see the dude burned alive and the other guy exploded at the end. no idea why those were the issues and nothing else in the movie was.
41. the losers - captain america before marvel. a comic book adaptation of some kind. entertaining.
42. kinsman: golden circle - convoluted plot reminiscent of bond movies? you bet. enjoyed, but at 2.5 hours started in the morning and finished in the evening.
43. Live and let die - OMG. the racial stereotypes. horrible. was cringing most of the time. best theme song however.
44. the man with the golden gun - these just don't seem to be as good as i remembered growing up
45. moonraker - JAWS again. space battle with lasers! had to have been the first i saw in the theater.
46. for your eyes only - a favorite.
47. octopussy - bond as a clown who saves the day? oh boy!
48. never say never again - connery returns for a reboot of thunderball. not done by eon productions. seemed to be better plot and acting wise than some of the moore offerings.
49. dunkirk - really enjoyed this. i liked the three different perspectives that came together to tell the story.
50. bolt - travolta voices a superhero tv dog that ends up out on his own and has to come to grips with not actually having superpowers. a nice bit of animation, good story. i was totally into this. perhaps a nice change after so many bond films.
51. south park: bigger longer uncut - still funny in parts, but quite dated
52. license to kill - these bond movies seem so dated...
53. a view to a kill - a way too old roger moore
54. the living daylights - this one wasn't too bad
55. goldeneye -
56. tomorrow never dies - michelle yeoh steals all the scenes
57. the world is not enough - why are all the supervillian's plans so convoluted?
58. die another day - north korean bad guys??
59. harry potter and the sorcerers stone - they look so young!
60. HP and the chamber of secrets - still a good movie
61. HP prisoner of azkaban - uh, oh. i'm binge watching potter
62. HP goblet of fire - still going
63. HP order of phoenix - what better to do in the last few days of vacation? more potter!
64. HP half blood prince - SNAPE! you bad guy!
65. HP deathly hallows 1 - a big story needed two movies.
66. HP deathly hallows 2 - even though i just watched these two over the winter, i was totally into them again. SNAPE!
was kinda fun to watch all the potters in order and watch how the actors aged; and catch the easter eggs that foreshadowed later events.

67. i'm gonna git you sucka - parody of the blaxploitation movies of the 70's from one of the mayans brothers. not bad.
68. dragonslayer - watched this so many times as a teenager. still enjoyable.
69. zoolander - hadn't ever watched this. had it's moments.
70. clockstoppers - didn't realize this was a YA movie about a watch that stops time. surprisingly good, even if predictable.
71. vantage point - realized i had seen this before about halfway through. still a good suspense movie.
72. blade runner 2049 - seemed slow, but i enjoyed it. probably need to watch it again to get everything.
73. atomic blonde - just wasn't my thing.
74. from dusk till dawn - two movies in one: the beginning, then the bar scene. delightfully violent and gore filled. i liked it more now than i did when i first saw it.
75. the hateful eight - i figured i'd take a break during this one, but kept going all the way through in one sitting. totally sucked into it. really liked it. not sure why so many "n-bombs" were needed in the dialogue.
76. MI:fallout - wow, jj abrams can ruin anything. too long. needlessly long action scenes. no character development. but such is abrams. at least the matinee was only $5.

Re: 50 Movies in 2018
« Reply #248 on: September 05, 2018, 02:08:22 PM »

1. LANDLINE - 01/01/18 - Amazon - Jenny Slate, Edie Falco, and John Turturro. What's not to love? Really impressed with the unknown for me in the cast, Abby Quinn. The 90s clothing and music were also perfection. I've been singing Crystal Waters for two days in a row as a result. La-da-di, la-doo-dow. https://youtu.be/_KztNIg4cvE
2. I, TONYA - 01/06/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/va_vacious - I thought it was just OK. I liked Margot as the older Tonya. But, trying to pass her off as fifteen around actual 15 year olds was ridiculous. Also, the CGI took me out of the skating parts. It was not good. But, Allison Janey was incredible and I really liked what the movie had to say about the way Tonya was treated by the media (and the country).
3. QUEEN OF KATWE - 01/17/18 - dvd from library - I'm the #1 Spice!
4. THE MARTIAN - 01/17/18 - FX - repeat viewing - Still a fun and thrilling movie experience.
5. COMING TO AMERICA - 01/19/18 - STARZ - repeat viewing - The looks on the royal family's faces when Patrice tells them that Semmi is the prince is so good.
6. CALL ME BY YOUR NAME - 01/20/18 - Regal Kennesaw - I've been floating around in this world since seeing this movie on Saturday. The longing. The tension. The messiness of all of it. GAH. Also, I'll never be able to get "Love My Way" out of my head.
7. COLUMBUS - 01/20/18 - Amazon VOD (for only $0.99!) - I've been through Columbus on my way to Nashville and always wanted to stop and see what was up with that town that just pops up (seemingly) out of nowhere with that incredible bridge. It was fun to meander through the town in the film, along with John Cho and Haley Lu Richardson. Parker Posey was maybe the least "Parker Posey-ish" that I've seen her.
8. BURKE & HARE - 01/21/18 - some cable channel - We stumbled onto this movie - "WHAT IS THIS MOVIE WITH SIMON PEGG AND ANDY SERKIS?!?!!?" - and couldn't turn it off even though it was absolutely dreadful. I had no idea that this movie existed. I can't believe it was made and released. I can't believe we watched it.
9. THE POST - 01/23/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe - I thought this would be a snoozer but it definitely held my interest. Waste of Sarah Paulson amongst a cast that was just an embarrassment of riches for Spielberg (Odenkirk was dynamite!). Cheers from the audience when Kay really has her moment in the final act.
10. PHANTOM THREAD - 01/27/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe - I could watch those seamstresses walk up and down those stairs all day. But, this movie wasn't really for me.
11. THE SHAPE OF WATER - 01/28/18 - Studio Movie Grille - For a Guillermo Del Toro movie, I would have liked to have had a bit more creature in this feature. Sally Hawkins was breathtaking in this performance. So many scenes were absolutely beautiful.
12. THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES - 02/03/18 - Netflix - Heavy family stuff with all of the actors doing the heavy lifting.
13. (NUOVO) CINEMA PARADISO - 02/03/18 - Netflix - repeat viewing - Has any kid been cuter on screen that little Toto? COME ON. Marco Leonardi was soooooooooooooo foine. I checked his IMDB and nearly plotzed when I saw that he is in ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD. Now I have a reason to watch it. Watching this again was like hanging out with an old friend.
14. PADDINGTON 2 - 02/04/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/va_vacious - Please wrap me up in all of the wallpaper in this movie. So delicious. This was light and funny and gorgeous and highly entertaining. The perfect Sunday matinee.
15. BLACK PANTHER - 02/16/18 - Studio Movie Grill w/va_vacious and Victor - Great action, great cast, great look, and a story that made sense. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED the movie but very underwhelmed with the "grill" experience at the movies this time. When you get bad service at a restaurant, it ruins the meal. When you get bad service at one of these dine-in theatres, it ruins the meal AND the movie-goint experience. BOO.
16. CON AIR - 02/18/18 - repeat viewing - Good Lord. I forgot how stacked this cast was.
17. E:60: OWEN & HAATCHI - 02/25/18 - ESPN - All the tears. A boy and his dog.
18. ANNIHILATION - 02/25/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/va_vacious - For anyone who saw the trailer and thought they would like the movie, I don't see how it could disappoint. It's definitely creepy and sometimes it is down right horrifying. An intense mood that just layers itself around you.
19. TRAFFIC STOP - 02/25/18 - HBO - This is one of the live action shorts that is Oscar nominated this year and it's available on HBO.
20. GAME NIGHT - 03/06/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe - I went in pretty blind on this one, only remembering that I had liked the trailer and that it was filmed in Atlanta. After seeing it, I'm with Butter on this one. I liked it but I could have liked it more. Lots of eye-rolling at how over-the-top some things were in the film. But, it was still fun. Loved the cast. Loved the concept. However, an early easter egg basically tipped a lot of the movie's plot for me and that was annoying.
21. WHEN HARRY MET SALLY - 03/17/18 - repeat viewing - Peeeecaaaaaaaaaaaaan Piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie.
22. LOVE, SIMON - 03/17/18 - AMC Barrett Commons - A sweet movie. A nice time at the theatre. Nothing too angsty about this coming out story. But, as I've seen a lot of critics note, that's kind of what makes it so great. It's pretty vanilla and mainstream and most agree that it's time we finally got there with this kind of story.
23. BENJI - 03/23/18 - Netflix - That dog acted his ass off. All of the caper/kidnapping stuff was boring. MORE BENJI GETTING A BUBBLE BATH, PLEASE! 
24. TOMB RAIDER - 03/24/18 - AMC Barrett Commons w/Gwynner - It was a movie. It wasn't awful. Alicia Vikander is pretty.
25. TIME AFTER TIME - 03/25/18 - TCM - I still can't believe that Mary Steenburgen and Malcolm McDowell were ever married. Also, I know I saw this as a kid but I think I totally tuned out all of the Jack the Ripper stuff and just liked the time machine.
26. THE INTERN - 03/25/18 - basic cable - repeat viewing - Robert Deniro is a charming muthafunker in this movie.
27. THE HOUSE - 03/31/18 - HBO - The reviews for this thing were scaaaaaathing when it came out. But, I thought it was fine for a raunchy comedy that I didn't pay to see in the theatre. I'll watch Jason Mantzoukas in ANYTHING and enjoy it. Seeing Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell kiss each other is REALLY weird. It's like watching two siblings make out or something.
28. CLUE - 04/06/18 - Marietta Strand w/va_vacious and Alan - repeat viewing - "Communism is just a red herring."
29. BLOCKERS - 04/07/18 - Regal Cinema Kennesaw - I'd like more of the POV of the girls and less slap-stick comedy from 2/3 of the parents (the Ike Barinholtz storyline was OK with me). But, this did have some GREAT laughs and decent heart. I probably would have LOOOOOOOOOOOVED this in middle school/high school.
30. SUPER TROOPERS - 04/07/18 - Cinemax - repeat viewing - JEEEBUS. I can't wait to see SUPER TROOPERS 2. I love every second of the original and it never gets old.
31. A QUIET PLACE - 04/08/18 - AMC Barrett Commons w/Beth - Plenty of tension, suspense, and fright in this movie without going too far. A fun popcorn movie that will make you clutch the person next to you more than once.
32. THE MASK OF ZORRO - 04/14/18 - Starz - Saw an interview with Antonio on CBS Sunday Morning and it made me think that I'd like to see this movie again. It's 20 years old this year, which seems impossible. But, it did not hold up well for me. However, you can totally see how it made CZJ a star. She is GORGEOUS in this movie.
33. JUMANJI - 04/21/18 - Marietta Picture Show w/Mom - Silly, fun, popcorn movie that we saw for $2.00/each. Went for The Rock, but stayed for Nick Jonas. :)
34. THE FLORIDA PROJECT - 04/22/18 - Amazon Prime Streaming - I loooooooooooove Sean Baker's movies for their realistic portrayal of every day people which is why I don't know if I can forgive him for the ending to this one.
35. ISLE OF DOGS - 04/23/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/Mom - PRO DOG.
36. SUPER TROOPERS 2 - 05/11/18 - Regal Town Center WITH THE GREG - This basically lived up to all of my expectations (which were high - get it?) except for the dumb cold opening. Also missed seeing Geoffrey Arend. "You can say 'queefing' on Canadian TV?"
37. BULLITT - 05/13/18 - repeat viewing - When you want an action movie that doesn't need a ton of flash or silly quips, but you would like to see a turtleneck or two.
38. AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR - 05/14/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/The Greg - "Oh, I'mma get that arm."
39. ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING - 05/21/18 - Netflix - A movie with a talking dog (voiced by Robin Williams), Simon Pegg, and Monty Python and I had never heard of it. A few GREAT jokes, but mostly just silly fun.
40. SOLO - 05/25/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/The Greg - I thought it was fun. VERY low stakes. Nothing about the STAR WARS universe hangs in the balance. Needs more LANDO.
41. DEADPOOL 2 - 05/26/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/The Greg - It was aiiight.
42. ALI WONG: HARD KNOCK WIFE - 05/19/18 - Netflix - Jeeebus, she's hilarious.
43. ALI WONG: HARD KNOCK WIFE - 06/09/18 - repeat viewing with The Vizz
44. AMERCIAN MADE - 06/16/18 - HBO w/The Greg - Meh. Good to see Tom flying a plane. But, that was about it. Also, the casting for his wife was JARRING. She's a good 20 years younger and looks it.
45. OCEAN'S 8 - 06/17/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/Amanda, va_vacious, and Gwynner - Totally a fun matinee with the ladies. Needed more Rihanna and a kiss between Sandy and Cate. Fun to hear Sandy speak German to Heidi.
46. TAG - 06/19/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe - Keep the fun movies that help to dig up the smiles and laughter coming, please!
47. UNCLE BUCK - 06/28/18 - repeat viewing - IFC w/The Greg - The clown calling Buck a "four-flushing-sack-o-shit" cracked us up for several minutes. I never thought of using the number of times someone might need to flush as an insult and I am here for it, especially from a drunken clown. Also, Uncle Buck is a master cockblocker.
48. SET IT UP - 06/23/18 - Netflix - Thanks for the reminder va_vacious. I watched this, too. I thought it was OK. I wanted more Lucy Liu. I guess I'm an old because I wanted more of the OLDS than the YOUNGS in the movie. The bit with the pizza was adorable.
49. A WRINKLE IN TIME  - 07/04/18 - Picture Show w/va_vacious - I liked it much more than I thought that I would.
50. BOOK CLUB - 07/15/18 - Picture Show - I needed to turn my brain off and be surrounded by a bunch of seniors looking to have a good time. So, this movie fit the bill.
51. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT - 07/28/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe - Some top notch, edge of your seat, action sequences in this one. Rebecca Ferguson is also terrific in this installment. Tom Cruise continues to be a charming motherfucker.
52. MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL - 07/28/18 - FX - repeat viewing - Still my favorite of this franchise. That chase scene through the sand storm is a stunner.
53. BLACKKKLANSMAN - 08/12/18 - AMC Barrett Commons - I like this Spike when he's passionate about his message, even if he does lay it on pretty thick. Loved seeing some trademark Spike Lee shots. Driver and Washington were fantastic. The score was spot on for a Spike Lee joint and hearing Prince in a movie theatre for the closing credits made me very happy.
54. LAGGIES - 08/18/18 - Netflix - I like Lynn Shelton's stuff and I was pleasantly surprised by how well Kiera pulled off this character.
55. TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE - 08/18/18 - Netflix - Super fun and engaging teen rom-com with a great female lead and a totally dreamy romantic interest. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED this.
56. ROOM - 08/18/18 - Netflix (It was a rainy day and The Greg was with a friend all day!) - After something so fun and light, I figured I'd bring my mood waaaaaaaay down with this one. Jacob Tremblay was ROBBED of an Oscar.
57. CRAZY RICH ASIANS - 08/19/18 - AMC Pkwy Pointe w/Gwynne, Barb, and Aarti - THAT was gorgeous and fun. Michelle Yeoh is a goddess.
58. THE KISSING BOOTH - 08/25/18 - Netflix - I enjoyed TO ALL THE BOYS so much that I thought I'd give this other Netflix teen rom-com a shot. MOSTLY TERRIBLE! It felt so Disney channel cheesy compared TO ALL THE BOYS and then it suddenly got real adult and I was unable to recover from that total shift in tone.
59. The GURNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL SOCIETY - 08/26/18 - Netflix - I wanted to like this because of the cast but it was a spud-dud for me.

Nothing bad to say about this perfectly lovely movie, but nothing glowing either. The charm of the original is lost and the movie sort of makes me think that I'll forget it in two days. But everything was very well done from the singing to the songs to the laughs to the story to the characters and everything in between. Very polished and well done, but ho hum in the end. Anna Kendrick is such a star in this role that I'm wondering if I'll constantly think of her as Becca rather than Anna Kendrick. Other random thought: They gave DJ Khaled a key role in the story, but only let him speak in one scene and he was "bizarre" at best. He must either be a terrible actor or he must have been a pain to work with.

Here's an update on the last 2 weeks:

102. 2001 A Space Oddyssey (AMC Newport on the Levee)
103. Dogman (Cartoon's Cinema, Antwerp, Belgium)
104. 3 Faces (Cartoon's Cinema, Antwerp, Belgium)
105. Burning (Cartoon's Cinema, Antwerp, Belgium)
106. Stalker (Cartoon's Cinema, Antwerp, Belgium)
107. The Children Act (Cartoon's Cinema, Antwerp, Belgium)

Just before I went on vacation to Belgium, I saw the 50th Anniversary limited theater release of 2001, possibly my favorite movie of ALL TIME. Apparently director Christopher Nolan helped restore the movie to its original condition (including an actual 15 min. Intermission).

Cartoon's is basically the equivalent in Antwerp of the Esquire in Cincinnati. Looooove going there. Dogman (Italian release), 3 Faces (Iranian release), and Burning (South Korean release) are all excellent and worth checking out if you get the chance (and love foreign movies). The Children Act (UK release starring Emma Thompson), on the other hand, is a complete dud and not worth checking out.

And then there is Stalker, the 1979 Soviet Union cult classic. I saw it probably in 1980 or so when I still lived in Belgium. Hadn't seen it since. Keep in mind that this is a 2 hr. 45 min. movie. Let's just say that I had very mixed emotions about this film seeing it again all those years later. Don't really want to say a whole lot more so as not to spoil if anyone is tempted to check it out.

Re: 50 Movies in 2018
« Reply #251 on: September 09, 2018, 12:23:55 AM »


This is my 11th year tracking movies! Yikes! (Nevertheless, here I go)

1. Christmas in Connecticut from 1945, a magazine writer has created the proto-Martha Stewart life, and a wounded soldier just wants a perfect Christmas in Connecticut with her and her (imaginary) family. Wacky hijinks ensue. The leads were all in their late 30s/early 40s, which made this really interesting to me!
2. What If- Dan Radcliffe, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver. It's your basic rom-com, but nice enough to watch while cruising the internet.
3. I, Tonya Robbie and Stan are a bit too old to be playing 20-23 year olds, but their performances are excellent, and Allison Janney stole every scene she was in. Social commentary= excellent, skating= well, that could have been handled better.
4. Star Trek Beyond- second time around. I really like how Simon Pegg's character calls Jayda (Sophia Boutella) "lassie" all the time. I really liked how that relationship was created to be father/child rather than love interest.
5. Landline Really, really good cast. Tightly plotted movie, and they felt like actual people who make both good and bad decisions.
6. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri It's been nominated for Best Score- I just remember thinking the movie was so quiet. Huh. McDormond was excellent, and Woody Harrelson was, too.
7. New In Town- Renee Z. and Harry Connick, Jr. She's a corporate shill, he's the union rep for a dairy factory in Minnesota. It could be better.
8. Zoolander 2 This would have been really funny about 10 years ago. Sadly, it's not 10 years ago.
9. Good Dick I watched because Jason Ritter was in it. Well, it was interesting- Ritter's character essentially stalks the female lead (neither receive names in the movie), and won't take no for an answer. This is really not cute, or sweet, no matter how puppy-dog charming Ritter is. It's time to revisit what is acceptable movie meet-cute behavior.
10. Boy Taika Waititi's directoral debut. Set in New Zealand in the 1980s, from the perspective of a 10 year old boy. Growing up and learning that his father isn't the hero he thinks he is. It also involves a fantasty/dream sequence in which Waititi is dressed as peak Michael Jackson.
11. Captain America: The Winter Soldier- (first viewing of the year!) Saw with my dad, who has seen none of the Marvel movies. He had many questions.
12. The Shape of Water Very del Toro, I would have liked it more if the people next to me hadn't been laughing through most of the movie. Absolutely beautiful, needed more of the creature.
13. Paddington 2: The Paddingtonian This was absolute sweetness, and delightful, and everyone in it should receive all the awards. Also, how do they do such good CGI? I buy that the bear is real.

(Side note: Does Sally Hawkins have something in her contract about having to swim in her movies? Because she was very water- adjacent in both of these!)
14. Wonder Woman- so glad I saw it on the big screen to begin with- the CGI gets funny on a tv.
15. Cars 3 I didn't see Cars 2, but it didn't seem to matter. I mostly had it on to occupy time. It was harmless.
16. The Decoy Bride- re-watch for something cute. Extra points for David Tennant.
17. Captain America: Civil War- Getting ready for Black Panther! Still #TeamBucky
18. Black Panther Afternoon matinee with Lando and Victor. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and was totally hyped when I walked out of the theater. The costuming and set design are phenomenal, and the cast is 100% perfect. It works very well, with a solid script and good plot. It is a good movie, not just a good comic book movie. (Also, I want to grow up to be Shuri, T'Challa's sister) If you go, stay through the credits- there are two in credit scenes.
19. BFG Big Friendly Giant- Spielberg directed version of the Roald Dahl book. I kept thinking how much my niece and nephew would love it. Charming.
20. Room Very good. I don't think I could be a parent and let my 5/6 year old act in a movie like this. I know movies are shot out of order, and things are cut in different ways, so Tremblay would have been kept from the adult content, I hope, but it seems like it could have long-term effects on a kid.
21. Logan Lucky Very fun, very light, and Daniel Craig as Joe Bang was a delight.
22. Annihilation I'm not sure if I liked this - I know I didn't dislike it, but it was very *something* It definitely made me think.
23. Captain America: The Winter Soldier It was still in the Blu-Ray player, so I watched it again while messing around online.
24. To Wong Fu- Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar- For being 20 years old, it was a much kinder movie than I expected (I first saw it in the late '90s). John Leguizamo just about steals the movie from Patrick Swayze.
25. A Wrinkle in Time Solid kid movie, Storm Reid did a great job at Meg Murray, I liked Mindy Kaling for the first time ever, and it just needed a tiny bit more Chris Pine.
26. Hot Fuzz- wanted to watch something while waiting for friends. Their 13 year old thought it was great.
27. Hot Fuzz- 13 year old from above wanted to see it again- the "Best Movie Ever" he declared
28. Shaun of the Dead- had to follow up Hot Fuzz somehow!
29. Blockers I thought it would be dumb, but it was legit funny. I got free passes to a showing last night (yay!) and it was worth driving almost to Tucker to see. I laughed way more than I should have, and it is just fun.
30. Clue - with Lando at the Strand. The sound was not great, the cast looked like BABIES, but still all around enjoyable. Also, beer in the theater is an automatic win.
31. Despicable Me 3 Not quite despicable, not quite good, either. A little too much Steve Carrell .
32. Avengers: Infinity War Saw it opening weekend, and yes, I really liked it. It needed more T'Challa, and way more Shuri.
33. John Mulaney: New in Town I didn't like his sitcom, but I do like the standup.
34. John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City Hall Seriously, I like Mulaney a great deal.
35. Tig Nataro: Happy To Be Here She has a whole bit about her cat. It works for me.
36. Magic Mike- I was cleaning house, needed something entertaining.
37. Ibiza An honest to God Rom-Com! I will be watching it again, Richard Madden is easy on the eyes, and it's a wonderful movie about best friends, too.
38. Gifted Chris Evans in non-superhero mode. It's sweet,  but made me cry a few times.
39. Deadpool 2 It was fun, but I liked the first one better.
40. Oceans 8- Super fun, got to see it with Lando. Cate Blanchette had the most incredible hair.
41. Set It Up - Netflix. I see the return of the Rom-Com and I like it! It was cute, would be a good Saturday afternoon couch watch.
42. Solo Finally! It was enjoyable. Exactly what it was supposed to be- fun. I'd be ok with a Chewbacca movie, honestly.
43. Real Genius- I have no idea if this is actually a good movie or not, because I revert to my 13 year-old self and swoon over Val Kilmer.
44. African Queen- I don't think a movie like this could be made today. Hepburn and Bogart were really phenomenal.
45. The Princess Diaries- it's hot, summer, and this is the perfect antitdote.
46. Hannah Gadsby: Nanette Oof. This was brilliant, and hard, and funny.
47. Forgetting Sarah Marshall- puppet vampires, Russell Brand, I will never not watch.
48. W. Kamau Bell: Private School Negro has a whole bit on Doc McStuffins that I'm still thinking (and laughing) about.
49. Iliza Shlesinger: Elder Millineal I wasn't sure if I'd like this one, but she got funnier and more dead-on as the special progressed.
50. Thor: Ragnarok- the sound on my tv does not do justice for this movie. Still funny, still the best Thor movie.
51. To All the Boys I've Loved Before- such a sweet, easy little movie! It is going to be the perfect watch on a rainy afternoon comfort film for an entire generation.
52. The Last Jedi- Hey! It's on Netflix now! Upon re-watch, I don't like it nearly as much as I did in the theater. The story is disjointed
53. To All the Boys I've Loved Before- Yes, I liked it enough to watch a second time already. It's cute!
52. The Gurnsey Literary and Potato Peel Society Lily James was just made for period pieces, wasn't she? It's a solid, entertaining film, and there were at least three Downton Abbey actors in it!
53. Crazy Rich Asians- such over the top fun, 90 minutes of a life so rich you can't fathom it was just about right. I'm glad to be back in Target land!
54. Black Panther- it's on Netflix now! Chadwick Boseman does an amazing job letting others shine in this movie without losing his movie-star-ness.
55. Sierra Burgess is a Loser  Another high-school rom-com. It pales in comparison to "To All the Boys", especially since the love interest is played by the same actor in both films (Noah Centineo) However, Shannon Purser is adorable. It's essentially "Roxanne" but gender flipped. There was lots of texting, which makes sense given how prevalent it is today, but it was really hard to read the messages from across the room.

The cover has a woman with 4 boobs! The movie itself has tons of boobs. The titular sorceress is basically showing them the entirety of her scenes. And yet, this was a really really really bad movie. My wife and I were like, "this feels like the set of a high school play." I watched it once in like 2004 or something and I doubt I've seen it since then. I will not be watching it again.

Watched this to remember Burt Reynolds. He was great in this, as was Sally Field, and the general spirit of the film. The general plot was ridiculous as was most of the rest of it, but the likability of Burt and Sally, plus the absurdity of the villain, makes up for the negatives.
