    Rocky 2-4

    Had so much fun with these, and then I decided to watch that bad Peter and Wendy flick, which I enjoyed, but it's certainly not great.

    This year I enjoyed Rocky 2 more than the first

    The Creed movies are good, too. But they lack something and I don't know what.
    I'm happy to see more Rocky 5 fans.

    I never understood the hate for R5. It wasn't flashy and comic books like part 3 and 4, it was more character driven. I think people disliked it, because it had no real boxing match at the end.

    Wish (2023)---Meh...It was ok for a kids movie. Nothing really memorable in it nor the songs for me. The GF loved it as did the kiddo, so it did it's job. Alan Tudyk is a national treasure...

    The Snow Society

    Really gross, had to look away a few times. I'd rather see a horror movie than this.

    My cinema chain has been doing a Sci-Fi season so last week I saw Blade Runner and tonight is Blade Runner 2049. Next week will, of course, be Dune Part II.

    "I WILL MIX THE ASHES OF YOUR BONES WITH SALT AND USE THEM TO ENSURE THE EARTH THE TEMPLARS TILLED NEVER BEARS FRUIT AGAIN!"

    "*sigh* I hoped it was for the miracle."

    Dan Watters' Azrael was incredible, a constant delight and perhaps too good for this world (but not the Forth). For the love of St. Dumas, DC, give us more!!!

    Blue Beetle

    Uninspired and dull. At least the cgi was good this time.

    Mechanic: Resurrection
    Jason Statham
    Grade: B-

    Just looking at the aggregate IMDB/RT scores you'd think this was going to be bad. I'm often curious what type film the folks that graded it so lowly thought they were queuing up for anyway. Can an action film be "deeper" and have a tight narrative, sure if Tom Cruise is involved or the Broccolis are making a Bond. The narrative moves fast, that is actually part of the schtick here. The guy framing Stathams character Arthur Bishop wants 3 kills within days. One has to suspend some logic here as sequences move from point A->B->C to allow Bishop the kills. Jessica Alba is being held hostage and at a few points they allow her character to not just be damsel in distress. Nice small role for Tommy Lee Jones here as an Arms Dealer.
    I had never made time for this but after seeing Beekeeper recently decided to rectify that. Mechanic 2 Resurrection was not a financially strong entry so this is likely it but if not I'd take another Mechanic film.

    Poor Things- My favorite parts were the "furious jumping" lol. Funny at certain times sad at others. Wouldn't be surprised if Stone won an oscar for this.

    Logan Run ( 1976 ) starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter, and Richard Jordan and guest starring Farrah Fawcett-Majors and Peter Ustinov. Sci-Fi tale set in a future where people live perfect lives in a domed city, but you can only live to the age of 30. Once you reach that age you must participate in something called Carrousel for a chance to be reborn. People who refuse are called Runners and are hunted down by future police called Sandmen. Logan 5 is a Sandman who is forced to become a Runner and is joined by a woman named Jessica 6. As they try to escape, they question everything they thought they knew about the world and grow closer together.

    I haven't seen this since I was a kid and forgot a big chunk of it, but despite being dated in some ways, I think it mostly holds up. Well paced, decent acting and I liked a lot of the concepts. I did think the model or whatever they used for the cityscape looked kind of odd. Overall, I remained pretty engaged.

Really good fight scenes and it moves along at a pretty quick pace.
    Trying to figure out if all Ong-Bak films have the same plot, or whether the original was given a subtitle where you live for no apparent reason

    Logan's Run (free on Tubi right now). It is a classic in cinema and actually foreshadows some of the technology we use today - portable handheld devices, AI, personal computers, internet dating, plastic surgery using lasers, water reclamation, sustainable renewable energy. Some of that tech was in an infancy stage back then. Pretty impressive film, technologically, for the 1970s. The use of color in the costumes, scenery and technology is something to watch for as it is very symbolic.

    Still its so bonkers to me that when they finally get outside the city, the only guy they find is a crazy cat man.

    I watched it with my 23-year-old son and it reminded him of Thor Ragnarok, interestingly.
