freakin' awesome! way more than a mere monster movie, it takes a harsh look at japanese governance (it's mostly about government officials discussing and debating and trying to figure out what the hell to do), plus it looks like the difficulty in being pals with the US (y'all can be terrifyingly overbearing at times)

and maybe i'm reading too much into it but i think it's also a metaphor for japan's wwii legacy, and the fact that japan remains on a kind of probation with everyone looking close for signs of militaristic resurgence

overall a really watchable flick
Affair in Trinidad (1952) Rita Hayworth (she dances) and Glenn Ford deal with ex Nazi rocket scientists. Rita dances, twice. Laughable dialogue. Rita dances.

Age Of Ultron (2015) Robert Downey Jr and James Spader. Awful. Less Than Zero.

Kingsglaive - Final Fantasy XV

Most impressive CG. There are certain times, when characters are not talking, that you can barely see any uncanny valley. The environments and clothing are amazingly realistic.

And it was an entertaining action movie. I enjoyed it. The downside is that it's an almost two hour cinematic intro to a game I won't be able to play. I guess I'll watch gameplay videos of it on youtube to know how the story ends.

fine philosophical argument

but the hard reality is that it's a dirty, squalid, awful business that's got plenty of violence, abuse and addiction

So you want to keep it that way?

It's good, but the ending is boring.

I saw most of Nine Lives yesterday. (I skipped through the formulaic parts, most of the first act) although the rest of the movie was well done enough that I might go back and watch them anyway.

It was cute.

When the Earth is destroyed, a copy of this movie will survive for extraterrestrials to discover tens of thousands of years from now, and it will be recorded as our civilization's history.

Just watched Suicide Squad.
So many possibilities wasted, all that action and yet managed to feel plodding and boring.

Or in other words standard DC.

Random thoughts about Rogue One.
* Blue milk!!
* Ip Man!!
* Kudos to the production team for recreating the buildings, costumes, hair styles, sets, and props from A New Hope so well.
* CGI characters who are supposed to be human, be they good guys or bad guys, and no matter how well done, ultimately come off looking fake.
* For some reason, I kept wanting Jyn Erso to speak with a Scottish accent.
* For a fairly obvious reason, I kept wanting Cassian Andor to say, "You killed my father. Prepare to die."
* James Earl Jones' voice is starting to show his age.
* Took a LONG time to get going.
* In the climactic battle, a TIE fighter blows up near the top of the tower they're trying to get to. The puff of smoke left behind looks like a Disney logo.
* No one in our audience applauded at the end of the movie.
* I give it a solid B+.
* I wanted to go home and pop "A New Hope" into the DVD player immediately.

Blue Is Warmest Color.

If you like French-language films and graphic lesbian sex scenes but in a way that's not entirely pornographic, this movie might be for you.

You could have just left it at French-language films.

I can't believe it's not consensual butter.

The Man Who Came To Dinner (1942) Longer and more annoying than I remember. Bette Davis and Monty Wooley.

Christmas in Connecticut (1945) Barbara Stanwyk and Sydney Greenstreet. Pleasant enough.

Krampus (2015)

Decent setup, some fairly clever comedy around the horrible forced family get-together scenario. The grandmothers flashback to her Austrian childhood in Rankin/Bass style claymation is pretty brilliant. I'll say it needed to be gorier and it's thoroughly PG, doesn't even warrant a 13 as there's nothing harder than Poltergeist. Krampus' minions are pretty cool, sort of Puppet Master-ish. The joke starts to wear thin by the third act, but it's ok. Entertaining, don't spend money.

Not as cool as this video:

Now that it's on Netflix, finally watched Captain America : Civil War. I thought it was pretty bold of Marvel to have Captain America be the bad guy in his own film.

Sausage Party - stupid, vulgar, but often managed to be stupid-funny and vulgar-funny, with an interesting not-very-subtle take on how not to be an annoying neckbeard evangelical atheist.

2003 Hulk (Eric Bana) movie... it was... meh.

Finally saw Suicide Squad. Stupid fun popcorn movie. Got a lot more hate than it deserved, which is usually the case with these movies anyways.

Nice Guys - ultraviolent "buddy cop" film with a crapton of nudity and drug use. Not bad, for all that.

Airheads - still dumb.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli. Do you really need to know more than that?

Ok, here's something: It's fantasy, with a touch of sci-fi, and the english dub features the voices of Patrick Stewart, Uma Thurman, Edward James Olmos and Mark Hamill.

Sisters
We're the Millers

Both pretty good.
The Artist (2011) Hard to imagine a sweeter film for grown-ups.

Singin' In The Rain (1952) and That's Entertainment III (1994) in honour of Debbie Reynolds.

By coincidence, The Artist and Singin' In The Rain deal with the same subject.

The Astronaut Farmer (2006) Billy Bob Thornton, Virginia Madsen. If you can get past the huge plot holes and all the rest that doesn't hold up, it's a small charming movie about dreaming big.
