    Before that I watched another low budget crime winner called Good Time
    We seem to be on the same page about these modern indie crime thrillers! I thought that GOOD TIME was a great little surprise. BLOOD SIMPLE is also a fantastic piece of cinema.

    I wanted to watch that last night, but I'm so fucking tired all the time that I saw the two-hour run time and said "Fuck, I'll fall asleep!"

    So I watched 1922, and....FELL ASLEEP. Now I have to watch the whole fucking film again.

    We took the boy to the Imax to see THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN THE WALLS today, and we all had a good time. A good starter film for budding horror fans.

    I think they're only using the scroll in the beginning for the numbered "Episode" films. ROGUE ONE didn't have the scroll, either. We saw SOLO opening weekend, and we all enjoyed it. Underrated film that suffered because of the LAST JEDI backlash.

    I saw THE PREDATOR this afternoon, and I thought it was a fun film. Did anyone else here see it? If so, I have a question that needs answering, so....help!!!

    Regarding Crazy Rich Asians...I probably will wait for it on video, but I am beginning to become interested in this one. Romantic comedies can be hit/miss for me. And not many are as good as my personal favorite, 500 Days of Summer; that was a really clever screenplay.

    Regarding Cruise's Mummy...I saw that on HBO a while back and although I can't remember all the details right now, I thought it wasn't as bad as the general consensus seems to think (although it is not the greatest film, either).

    I recently watched The House That Dripped Blood on Tubi. Really enjoyed it. I love anthologies, and Amicus/Hammer ones are great! Did not realize they were apparently based on Robert Bloch tales; I think he was involved in the script as well? I've always thought of Bloch as someone who wrote Psycho and not much else, but after searching for info on him after watching the film, I was surprised to see that he was quite prolific in his lifetime.


    I also watched on Tubi Dracula vs. Frankenstein. Seen it before, but that one is always a lot of fun. Especially around this time of year.


    Has anyone seen the anthology Holidays? Not sure whether to give that a chance or not. Well, I suppose I probably will either way, but I guess I mean to ask what is the probability of enjoying it. I will also mention that I am currently watching the Star Wars Solo film from the summer; I sometimes watch movies in a few sittings (some people deplore that viewing technique, but it seems to work for me given my schedule). So far I think it's entertaining, but I can understand why it didn't have a large gross at the box office. And I find the choice of not using a traditional Star Wars scroll, with the theme, before the film an odd one...

    Another one I recently watched was Spotlight which is also recommended viewing.

    I recently re-watched Conspiracy which is available on Prime Video. Prior to this I went to see Operation Finale while visiting friends. These two are related in one of the main characters in each, Adolf Eichmann. Both are worth watching if you like biopics about war crimes.

    Also watched Logan Lucky which turned out to be a lot better than I expected based on the advertising.

    Finally, re-watched Blade Runner: 2049 and found that, like the original, I enjoyed it much more the second time. I still like the the first one better but 2049 holds its own well.

    My wife and I saw CRAZY RICH ASIANS over the weekend, and I liked it a lot...a solid 8 out of ten.

    On the other hand, we watched PITCH PERFECT 3 the other night....I thought the first two were a lot of fun, but 3 was a dopey sack of shit. Time to put this franchise out to acapasture.
    I stopped after the first PITCH PERFECT. I didn't want to see it to begin with, but my wife did and I enjoyed it way more than I thought I would.

    I've gotta check out CRAZY RICH ASIANS. I kinda miss romantic comedies. I also kinda miss when the mid-budget films that we used to get all the time. Now it's indie movies or big huge CGI blockbusters. There's nothing wrong with either, but there can be a middle ground, I think.

    Finally got around to seeing MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT yesterday. Damn, what a film! I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise, but I have to give the crazy fucker props for all of the insane stunts that he does.
    And I watched THE INVITATION on Netflix last night....Solid and well-made, but I saw the ending coming a mile away, so that was kind of disappointing. I'd heard so much hype about the twist, and the last scene.....oh, well. I've seen and read too much, so I hardly ever get surprised anymore. I can call twist endings almost from the opening scene.
    I really like THE INVITATION. I don't think there was much of a twist to the plot as it pretty much plays out as expected. The last scene is good, but I didn't hit me as hard as other people. I do think that it is a deeply affecting movie about loss and grief, regrets and forgiveness. I like to pair this thematically with A DARK SONG. Not in the same genre--unless you consider "Independent Horror" a genre--but so good.

    I took my wife and son to see CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER last weekend. It was playing in IMAX 3-D as part of the Marvel Film Festival, and tickets were FIVE BUCKS!! WINTER SOLDIER is one of my top three Marvel films, and I was thrilled to see it on the IMAX screen for the first time. I could watch that film over and over again. My wife loved it, too.

    She and I also watched SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT in honor of Burt Reynolds the night he passed away. I had somehow never seen this film before. It was pretty much what I expected.....not great, but you could tell that all involved were having a good time, and that feeling of fun really showed. I did have one great belly laugh, when Burt looks at Sally Fields' legs and says "The last time I saw legs like that, they had a message attached to them."
    R.I.P., Burt.
    Agree about the Winter Soldier. It was a great movie.

    I love Smokey and the Bandit as well!
