    Tolkien. Even though it wasn't received well I watched it on HBO anyway because I had nothing else to do. It wasn't bad. The acting was good and it kept me pretty interested but being a fan of the guys work (and the films adapted after it) I felt they left out some key things.

    I saw it in the theater and really enjoyed it and that seems to be Shamalans directing style - very low key. I think its a taste.

    He's been known to be a jerk on sets, and he's phoned in performances for years.

    I think UNBREAKABLE has one of the greatest acting performances by Bruce Willis. I also think he's pretty good in GLASS. Sure, in a lot of his movies he hasn't given a lot but for Shyamalan he gave what was needed. A lot of the acting is internal--so it's very subtle, but it's there in the small details of his performance.

    Ferris Bueller's Day Off & Law Abiding Citizen, both on Netflix. I had never seen FBDO and my friend had never seen LAC. Good way to spend a Saturday night, IMO.

    Spenser Confidential: Love Mark Wahlberg, but this one was some kind of hard action thriller with jokes or whatever that was. Was okay, a lazy Sunday evening movie.

    The Boy: Boring and predictable, until it wasn't anymore. Didn't see that twist coming.

    Went and saw Call of the Wild over the weekend. It was a movie both me and my wife picked as a compromise. Turned out to be pretty good, much better than I had expected it to be based on the trailers. Its PG and PC, so there are no Native American elements like there are in the book, and the parts where Buck the dog gets beaten up and kills other dogs are non-existent. But the movie still gets the point of the book across even given those omissions.

    Ophelia Primarily for Daisy Ridley. It wasn't the unwatchable carwreck I expected it to be. I wasn't tempted to stop watching it half way in, as is the case with so many films these day. Daisy is the best thing in the film, and her best performance is towards the last half hour. That being said, apart from being a fan of Daisy . I just wanted to see how the role compares with Rey and her acting skills in general. I read some snide remarks comparing Ophelia to Rey. They are not. Rey and Ophelia are two different characters. And Daisy plays them differently. The movies okay. I didn't like the way Hamlet was written. But it was a family mellow drama.

    Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker for the 17th time. Delightful!

    That Spenser movie has absolutely nothing to do with its source material beyond the names. The trailer is atrocious.
