    Detectorists, a show on Prime. Not a movie but, hey, sue me! Its about a couple of guys who are in a metal detecting club and stars the guy who played Arnim Zola on the MCU movies and some other pretty good actors.

    Fun show.

    How I Became a Superhero. Small, French superpowers flick. Pretty good, but watch with subtitle, the dubbing is bad.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Space Jam legacy. Shoulda been an hour and a half not 2. Really weird but the game and father/son themes were crazy cool.

    I don't really have a particular favorite of the three individual chapters. I watch them with the notion that it is one really long story. Each one has things that annoy me but as a whole, it is just about the best adaptation anyone could have hoped to see.

    Major Grom, Plague Doctor. Russian Comic Book movie on Netflix, and a good one.

    Yeah while Cruella is still my top pleasant surprise theatrical blockbuster fare for the year so far (and maybe the whole year, I want to love stuff like Reminiscence and A Night in Soho though), but I Taz rolled through this fine and liked the Don Cheadle baddie.

    And the Lebron James/Looney Tunes team's last minute secret weapon joke had my whole theater roaring.

    Yeah that gameplay was really intricate and well executed. Somebody needs to tap Don on the shoulder to play a super villain in another movie too.

    I read Tolkien and wouldn't do it again. I just did it because everyone was telling me I have to read Tolkien before seeing the movies. I put up with the three books of his and finished them properly, but I found it boring and exhausting.

    In this case the movies are better then the books. (personal opinion, very subjective)

    Escape Plan 2

    The first one was a lot better, the prison was way better too, but I still found some enjoyment in this one. Not sure what it is about this series that keeps me coming back.

    LOL, but that was a short post! he didn't even do a single footnote, post script, addendum, or an edit.

    I'm gonna blame Ernest Hemingway!

    Black Widow - great cast but overall was OK - 7 out of 10

    A Quiet Place II - some thrilling bits but felt like an episode of a series rather than a standalone movie - 6 out of 10

    Isle of Dogs - as usual a work of art by Wes Anderson - 8 out of 10

    I find the extended Fellowship of the Ring and Return of the King are masterpieces, enriching and evolving the story in really beautiful ways... I don't watch the extended Two Towers. It feels like that had no scenes cut for time reasons, merely cut because they weren't very good (so putting them back in for an 'extended' felt false).

We are Fredrick the Great. We are Rustin. We are Addams. We are Marsha! Marsha Marsha Marsha! We so generous, we DeGeneres. We are Ziggy Stardust hooked to the silver screen. Controversially we are Malcolm X. We are Plato. We are Aristotle. We are RuPaul, god dammit! And yes, we are Woolf."

    Sorry but... Tolkien. Read his Bio! He was amazing. Like Da Vinci or Beethoven only with words/language/compassion.

    I'll give you that. But even the best of the best (in any medium) cannot reach every Reader (listener, spectator whatever). I know that he is great, but I skipped a lot of pages. I wanted to read the whole saga and I did (minus lets say 50 pages). I felt it was heavy to read and it couldn't get me excited.
