    I saw Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw today. It was a big dumb action flick with an emphasis on the dumb. But I enjoyed it for what it was. The sci-fi aspects of the story did the movie no favors though.

    Yea the more story we got the worse things got. But the movie thrived on the chemistry of Stathem and the rock.

    The Meg

    Ok, just what I expected. Jaws, but bigger and meaner.

    The Maze Runner

    Fun idea, and I love a good Labyrinth.

    Bone Tomahawk. A horror western with one of the most disturbing or ugly gore scene I have ever seen...

    Solaris(1972) by Andrei Tarkovsky.

    One of the best sci-fi movies i have seen. A definite recommend if someone wants to see some thought provoking science fiction. The film tries to ponder upon philosophical questions like meaning of life and humanity using the 'sci-fi' part as a backdrop. Fair warning that Tarkovsky films can feel torturous to many people for their slow pace and an apathy to explain everything. Personally, i felt that very rewarding, as i often found myself trying to understand what something meant. Normally, in films we are passive receivers. But in films like this one can be an 'active' receiver.

    I have heard people call this an answer to Kubrick's 2001, my favorite film. While there are similarities, both films are very different. 2001 gave a feeling of majesty and awe. This one left me feeling sad but satisfied. Brilliant movie. 10/10

    I've been watching lots of period pictures lately and one thing I'm in search of is Regency period ball dances--thus Jane Austen movies. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE (2005) did this well. But I have the feeling there must be a movie that surpasses all others in presenting this kind of conceit. What I like about it is that almost always this is a conversation piece--instead of an Aaron Sorkin walk and talk, it's a Jane Austen dance and talk.

    John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum
    My favorite of this year's movies so far, and I've only seen a bit more than a handful of those.

    Brightburn
    Camera crew were not in their best form for this movie, there are too many shaky camera shots, even for Kyle Breyer lying there in bed. Why?
    And overall, I thought the movie was watchable, but it's not good. I can say that the death of Noah serves as one of those PSAs to remind drivers and anyone in a car to fasten their seat belts.

    The Accountant (2016)- A fun action flick with an autistic action hero but a dull plot.

    IT, Chapter 2

    Some jumpy moments, Pennywise was certainly on his A game, but ultimately the movie still felt rushed even at nearly 3 hours. I read the book decades ago but could not remember most details of the Losers' final confrontation with Pennywise. This part of the movie felt "too easy".

    Brightburn. Forgettable, especially after watching The Boys series.

    I've seen pretty much all of Tarkovsky's movies and my favourite one is NOSTALGHIA (1983), which he made in Italy (unlike his other Russian movies), but I would be at a loss to explain the plot of the movie. I found this movie quite inspiring and it seemed like being in Italy and not having to make a movie for the Soviet Union had freed Tarkovsky to explore more of his spirituality. Yet I felt let down by his final movie, THE SACRIFICE (1986), which is just as Swedish and NOSTALGHIA is Italian. The sacrifice in NOSTALGHIA is self-abnegating while the sacrifice in THE SACRIFICE is self-indulgent.

    It seems like every male director has a fetish. In Tarantino's case it's feet; for Tarkovsky it was the back of a woman's head, with the hair gathered in a bun. I think this was something to do with his mother, who must have had her hair that way. The first Tarkovsky movie I saw was MIRRORS (1975), which is loosely autobiographical, and you can see there his obsession with his mother and the back of her head.

    I thought John Wick 3 was much stupider than the first two. The plot and action sequences jumped the shark.

    I saw the first two movies on my home screen and I saw the third in an actual theatre, so that might have affected my experience, but I was awed by the stunts in JOHN WICK 3. I would say it levelled up on the action, not that it jumped the shark. But maybe to reach that level, they had to go light on the character motivation so they could squeeze in a greater variety of action sequences. Since one movie flows right into the next, I don't really see them as separate movies--just different chapters in one extended story.
