    Agreed. I wanted to support more movies that weren't sequels or blockbusters and watched it in the theatres. While I don't regret paying for the movie, as I love science fiction movies and this movie really did take advantage of special effects on the big screen, it was boring as Hell.

    I came home and started watching Red Sparrow on Netflix. I probably should have started watching it earlier than 2 am, as I started feeling sleepy and had to pause it. I'll pick it up from the beginning again as I was curious about where it was going.

    Just finished Ong-Bak with my father. He loves action movies, so I thought I'd get a lot more "oohs" and "ahhs" from him out of watching the superb Tony Jaa do his shit. Oddly enough, he really liked it but didn't get into it quite as much as I would have expected.

    Terminator Dark Fate.

    This was alright. I didn't hate it like some people.

    spoilers:
    Killing John did not bother me. Take this shit somewhere new! Then they kinda didn't, anyway. Oh well.

    I did kinda hate Dani. Could they have picked a less imposing human being to be the leader of the new resistance? Two feet tall. Looks about 12. Corn Rows didn't make her look tough. Yeah, I just couldn't buy into that. Especially against Hamilton and McKenzie, who fit the mold. The future scene, and the very end where they try to make her bad ass just did not work at all. Not a great actress across the board, but 100% not a bad ass.
    end of spoilers

    Other than that I enjoyed it enough for the time spent.

    The one thing I don't get about the Terminator movies is why they can't get a great director. That's why the first 2 are good. The scripts aren't fucking incredible, but Cameron was at the top of his game when he made them. So to try, numerous times, to get this shit going again they go and hire these also-ran journeymen directors.

    How does no one in charge see that the one thing missing from the equation is a really top tier director?

    I think they tried with Tim Miller.

    They felt Miller had come off a strong movie like Deadpool, where Miller really stretched the budget and delivered with surprising results. Even with Alan Taylor, I think they thought they found a diamond in the rough, where Taylor had a few directing credits on Game of Thrones. Personally, I thought Thor: The Dark World is one of the better looking MCU movies, even if it was a boring and shitty movie. Taylor directed that and maybe the Terminator producers thought they found a director with a strong eye for special effects. Genesys really was garbage, though and I thought Dark Fate was also garbage.

    Recently watched: Silver Linings Playbook on Netflix.

    King Kong: Skull Island. It was on TV last night and I was able to watch it all the way through with no interruptions. The monsters are freaky and looked like something from The Mist. I usually hate CGI but this was pretty good. Anyway, monsters freak me out, even the awful Liviathan did when I was young. If I think about them too much when I'm alone, which is a lot as I'm single, makes me want to run and hide. Cave girl flight or flight instincts, lol.

    For me it is. I watch them for my nostalgy not because of the action. I love character moments and montages but also Cap and Bucky and Natasha and Thanos.

    Mad Max Fury Road does little CGI and is one of the most visiually interesting movies of all times

    I hate CGI too. But...it really depends on different things. First: The quality. Marvel movies has very good cgi. When I watch Justice League I could cringe, that was bad.

    With Mad Max Fury Road I couldn't even tell what was cgi and what not. So that's a real good sign.

    I really hate it when they show us something like a helicopter and that damn thing is computer generated. Hell, its a heli you could film a real one. Or blood..why don't they use fake blood?

    X-Men, Dark Phoenix. Not sure if this was worse than Apocalypse or not. I liked the last fight in the train, but that didn't make up for an overall pretty awful movie.
    One thing? Am I right in assuming that Days of Future Past did away with all the continuity from X-Men 1-3?
    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!

    I was hoping to watch this one in theaters as well as Saint Maude for more under the radar flicks but will probably have to watch both elsewhere. At least I'm glad it's liked.

    I almost did go to see it in a theatre, but decided to wait until another day. Then the theatres were closed so I couldn't. Probably just as well that I didn't go, since I might've got the virus had I gone. However, seeing it on the big screen would have been ideal. The photography, costumes and art direction are so grand.

    I watched Black '47 and the documentary Porndemic this afternoon thanks to the free Showtime preview.

    Neither one was all that great. The former because it was so low-key that even the action scenes felt like they were moving in slow motion. The latter was interesting up until I realized that they had no clear answer to the central question they were supposedly covering.

    The Platform on Netflix. Compelling allegorical movie.
