    Yeah I'm not a fan of his slapstick stuff. But this was a much more serious role for him and he sold it.

    Knives out, pretty good whodunnit?. I did think it was kinda weird they made such a big deal of Marta's "otherness" when she could have easily passed as a family member. It also reminded me I like Craig a lot better as a character actor rather than James Bond.

    I saw this for the first time two nights ago. It kept my attention. I liked the ending but the acting was so dull with no charisma whatsoever. Having said this I might be interested in seeing the next movies.


    Bad boys 3 was fun. It reminded me of the 90s.

    I do like his slapstick stuff but yeah The Foreigner was a nice departure. If you see wanna see more rare serious Jackie Chan check out Dragon Fist, Police Story II and Heart of Dragon.

    Haven't seen it in ages but Willis is horrible in general. For me it fit the movie because he is in a state of depression until he emerges as SPOILERS

    Invisible Man

    I didn't really liked it but i seem to be in the minority according to the reviews. The Invisible man is supposed to be pretty smart yet has a massive oversight towards the end that left me scratching my head. Also felt like that same story could have been (has been) told without an Invisible Man so what was even the point.

    Felt the same way. This dude was pretty dumb for a smart guy. People who loved the movie could blame all that on the fact hes clearly unstable and insane I guess. Crazy people do dumb shit I guess no matter how high they're IQ might be. He i thought the movie was ok but I didnt love it.

    Not a movie, but I watched the Canal produced War of the Worlds show.

    I enjoyed it, despite being WotW in pretty much name only. I will definitely watch the second season to see where they take it.

    Has anyone else seen it?

    A new War of the Worlds show? Not seen it yet but it sounds interesting. The 1990s TV series was also WotW in name only, being a sequel to the original story, but it turned out to be worth watching. This one sounds like a much more apocalyptic take on things. I now have to find it and see if it is any good.

    It's apparently on Prime. Only 3 episodes so far, but I'm not sure if that's because Epix is still airing it weekly? It's 8 episodes total. Apparently a season 2 has been approved.

    I liked it for what it was. It's got Gabriel Byrne and Elizabeth McGovern in it, who are both great.

    THE GREAT ESCAPE (1963), which I've seen before but not in a long while--directed by John Sturges, starring a long list of great male actors--with a wonderful score by Elmer Bernstein. There are several similar plot points between this and LA GRANDE ILLUSION (1937) that I rewatched not long ago--even though one takes place in WW I and the other in WW II and THE GREAT ESCAPE is based on a true story but, as far as I know, LA GRANDE ILLUSION is not based on a particular true story even though it's true to life. It's also interesting to think of this movie in light of ONCE UPON A TIME . . . IN HOLLYWOOD. Just as Rick Dalton has Cliff Booth, Steve McQueen had Bud Ekins.

    Saw Onward and I loved it. What shines the most in this are the story and characters. Now sure a lot of Pixar is like this, but I exemplify it here because they do shore up what I feel to be the film's only weakness: The world. It's not bad per se but it's not particularly interesting. I see this as kinda the reverse WALL-E. Both films have humor that's not knee-slapping, strong characters, strong story, and good emotional moments. But where as WALL-E starts strong and slows down at a certain point, Onward starts slow and then goes strong at a certain point.

    I'd say it's among the better Pixar films. Among my own personal count I'd put it in the at least the Top 15.
