    Spectre (2015)

    While a solid third place in the Craig series and even several good action pieces.........it's still entirely to long and I fell asleep in the third act. Not to mention the "Skyfall" rip-off song by Sam Smith that somehow won an Oscar?

    The Accountant: With Ben Affleck. Ironically he was a better Batman in this than in Batman Vs. Superman. It's about a high functioning autistic man who launders money for criminal organizations. And who does some other side jobs. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but it's well worth the watch.

    The Equalizer 2: With Denzel Washington. I liked it much better than the first film, and ignoring the shoot em up stuff. The most touching parts was how he affected people's lives. Almost brought me to tears.

    From Russia With Love: Because of lock down/gym closures I've started a Bond re-watch. It was okay, very close to the book and less outlandish than some of the other Bond films.

    The Man With The Golden Gun: Now some decades older I can see why fans have such contempt for Roger Moore's Bond films. It's just silly, but I finished it.

    It's a G-rated Fast and the Furious type film.

    I CARE A LOT (2020), written and directed by J Blakeson, starring Rosamund Pike and Peter Dinklage.

    Rosamund Pike plays one of the most evil, most irredeemable villains I've seen on screen. She's a monster and that's not a spoiler; it's established at the outset of the movie. Is she a villain you love to hate?

    It's hard to talk about that without getting deep into spoilers. So I have to be vague and not explain exactly how the movie let me down.

    However, there are certain expectations set up in the first part of the movie that need to be paid off in the second half of the movie and I didn't get that pay-off. I can see why the director thought denying the audience that satisfaction was better, but I really really needed that pay-off.

    For anyone who isn't a total sociopath, this movie can be a tough watch at times--all the more so because it's about bad stuff that actually does happen. That discomfort might get in the way of enjoying the performances, but there's are some delicious scenes between the actors.

    Default just watch:

    just did a double feature. I watched Queen & Slim (2019), dir. Melina Matsoukas and written by Lena Waithe, which led to watching a review on it that pointed me toward this blaxploitation film called Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song (1971), auteured by Melvin Van Peebles, which I promptly watched afterward.

    Queen & Slim was sweet but poignant (if a little by the numbers) protest film. it very much goes the way you imagine what a "black bonnie & clyde" story would go in 2019. so, admittedly, in a way it feels pretty dated, but it executes it's tropes tastefully, so it's dated in the sense that it feels like a nice time capsule of civil unrest at the time. it's a solid date movie, assuming you and your date are invested in the subject matter.

    in the other hand, Sweetback was...wild. it's probably one of the oddest films I've ever seen. it's almost like an impressionist painting or (and this is gonna sound pretentious as fuck) like jazz. like the form is rough, there are moments where the cinematography just about completely breaks down, but it's more about the feeling it's communicating even in those moments of objectivity badly composed visuals; and I kinda dug that. I dug how effectively it got the feeling across and left an impression through all the wild shit going on. it's like a blaxploitation art film. that being said, it is an exploitation film FORREAL for real. I mean it's about a male prostitute who kills a cop and has to go on the run but even before that, right up top, there is a scene that can be seen as pretty despicable by today standards. it is 1000% not a film for everyone, but I enjoyed it for what it was.

    Anomaly 2014=Noel Clarke. Was kinda like a low budget Tenet. But this movie came out about 7 years before Tenet and the fights were better lol.

    A History of Time Travel. On Amazon Prime. Very well done little pseudo documentary (actually a film graduates movie). You have to pay attention to some subtle things as it goes on.

    I like how reality keeps shifting for the interview subjects, without them knowing it has. But that does make one wonder how the documentary crew were able to assemble the film we're seeing.

    We are watching it from another Universe outside of those in the film.

    DER GÖTTLICHE ANDERE (2020)--in English it's called DIVINE, although IMDb has it listed as THE BIG OTHER, the actual translation is "The Godly Other"--written and directed by Jan Schomburg, starring Callum Turner and Matilda de Angelis.

    Very cute and delightful movie. Gave me a lot of laughs. It's a German movie, the story is set in Rome, it's mostly in English, with some Italian (you can find a version in German, too) and it was filmed in Germany and Italy. From beginning to end, every minute is worth the watch.

    Red Riding Hood: while not a very good movie, I enjoyed it on a lazy evening.
