    Finally got around to watching American Psycho. While definitely a well made film, I found it more interesting than enjoyable, if that makes sense.

    Watched NOELLE, which was supposed to come out in theatres last week but instead was switched to streaming by Disney. I wonder why they did that. Maybe they were scared off by going head to head with LAST CHRISTMAS.

    I wanted to see it because it was made in Vancouver (partly) and an old friend of mine was the set decorator here. Also it was directed by Marc Lawrence, whose movies I like. It's one of those movies where if it just had a bit more holiday spice, it could become a Christmas tradition but it falls short of the mark.

    Anna Kendrick threatens to sing several times in the movie, yet never quite gets there. But if she had been in a big musical production that would have given it the Christmas sparkle it needed.

    I am interested in how movies show the North Pole. To me ELF captured the North Pole that was in my child's imagination. This one does a good job, but I didn't like some of the world building. I saw a headline that said this had a feminist agenda (or words to that effect) and that would never have occured to me from just the movie. I think people are looking too hard for political messages where they don't exist. It's just a sweet fantasy movie--not trying to be anything more than that. Sure, like every Christmas story, it's about understanding the real meaning of Christmas, but that goes all the way back to Dickens and maybe even further.

    They seemed to be putting some theatrical movies like this and Lady and the Tramp straight to streaming to help Disney+.

    "Glass" interesting, but not completely successful, I would say the weakest of the trilogy.

    "Overlord" Fun! A bit gruesome, but fun.

    "Garden of Words" Beautiful and tender, as I would expect from Shinkai, but the ages of the protagonists bothered me.

    You've Got Mail - I love romantic comedies. Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan coming together again for another feel good movie. I had already seen this movie a bunch of times, but I wanted to watch it again.

    Halloween (2018) - I had never seen a Halloween movie before, so this was my first exposure. I had heard good things about this movie, so I gave it a shot. Not bad.

    Blackfish - I don't watch a lot of documentaries, but every once in a while I like to check ones out. Great documentary.

    El Camino- The Breaking Bad movie: Redundant, had nothing new to say. Just fanboy pleasing.

    Dark Places: Very good crime, not as good as Gone Girl, though.

    Finally watched PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES directed by John Hughes, starring Steve Martin and the late great John Candy. I was in a mood to see a quintessential American Thanksgiving movie and I figured this was it. However, it's quite the horror story--makes JOKER seem like a day at the park. Necessary surprising factoid: Kevin Bacon has an uncredited scene in the movie! That's worthwhile intell for Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

    The Irishman- Nothing new to see here except a bad physical performance by Robert De-Niro. Who looks like he's doing the chickenwing while stomping somebody out. A weird melding of de-aging cgi and geriatric body movements. A by the numbers Scorsese flick. Also could have been 40min shorter. The epilogue showing wheel chair bound ancient gangsters dying in jail. didn't really serve any purpose.

    The irony here is the character Frank explains how his daughter became close to Hoffa because he was a kid-friendly guy who appeared to be helping ppl. But yet Scorsese doesn't the appeal of the MCU. Also funny how ppl can say a few bad cgi scenes in BP ruined the movie for them but had no problem sitting through 3 hours of bad cgi in this movie. smdh...

    I saw A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood the other day and loved it. While Hanks doesn't really look like Fred Rogers, he certainly channeled his persona. It brought back fond memories of the show and made me realize what a truly wonderful human being he was.

    The director I have the greatest affection for is Eric Rohmer. On the surface, his movies seem light, with lots of dialogue and long takes, about people in ordinary circumstances--yet his movies always have a deep meaning below the surface. He lets the actors improvise their scenes and there's a nice naturalism to the performances. But it's been many years since I watched all of Rohmer's movies, so I want to rewatch them all again.

    The first one I've rewatched is LA COLLECTIONEUSE (1967)--Rohmer's first feature-length movie, which I saw so long ago that I barely remembered it. This stars Patrick Bauchau, who has a distinctive voice (in French or English). I know I've seen him in other things, but he's so young, tall and handsome here that I couldn't match the face with the voice. Only later it came to me that he's a much older character actor who has appeared in many TV shows over the years. Makes me a little sad--why do people have to age?

    Some horror movies.

    Occulus
    : not bad, very predictable ending though. Mama, pretty interesting. Drag me to hell, good concept but average movie, poor acting and lot, lot, LOT of nonsensical scenes. We are still there, meh, nothing special, kinda bored me really.

    Mama clearly was the best of the lot i would say. Even with that ridiculous ending lol. And yeah, all ghost movies. Cause ghosts and monsters are pretty much the only kind of horror movies i enjoy.
