    Loved Cold Pursuit. It was supose to be absurd and a comedy.
    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!

    Spider-Man Far from Home. I liked it alot, more than Homecoming. First, the final battle was better, and IN DAYLIGHT!! I hate big nighttime finles. And Mysterio was a better villain than ther Vulture.
    The first extra scene was great spoilers:
    with Simons back as JJ.
    end of spoilers

    And the second I gather spoilers:
    is a lead into the next Captain Marvel movie.
    end of spoilers

    Its exactly the other way for me. I prefer Homecoming but both movies are really good yet none reach the highs of Spiderman 2 for me.

    ONCE (2007) written and directed by John Carney, starring Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová.

    If you ever feel down about the kinds of generic movies coming out these days, just think of a movie like ONCE, made for about $150,000 (thousands not millions of dollars), starring two performers who had no interest in becoming famous actors. A movie that went on to international acclaim, winning many awards, including the Oscar for best original song.

    I was gobsmacked by this movie. So simple, yet so good. A musical that never feels like a musical, about ordinary folk like you and me.

    It also became a very sweet Broadway Musical.

    Well, they got the absurd part at least. It wasn't the least bit funny.

    Oh I have no problem that you have a different viewpoint. I'm just saying what I thought of the movie after watching it. Believe me, I love some movies that others hate so it's only logical it would be the same for me.

    Yeah, I was just commenting that you saw it differently than me. Not taking you to task or anything.

    A Christmas Carol (2019)
    FX presented a brand new version of the Charles Dickens classic for television, and I found it to have been an absolute shitshow. It was NOTHING like the original novel (which I’ve read) and was as far removed from all the previous small screen and big screen adaptations that ever existed, and NOT in a good way.

    Venom It's a delightful bad-borderline mediocre movie.

    Ditto. It's in my blood. It'll take a few more viewings to get sober again!. It's been a long time since I've been this obsessed by a film. Good for Abrams and Disney for not listening to a bunch of vocal whiners who want to see their fan fiction on screen as opposed to good storytelling.

    I saw Knives out. Loved Johnson's TLJ and Looper, but I think he just dropped the ball on this one. The mystery was revealed half way through the film and the twist, I pretty much figured out once a character mentioned the board game he liked to play. It's an okay film, but it would serve better on cable.

    Ford Vs. Ferrari : Saw it because I liked the trailer. The period costumes and settings are nice. But the story is thin. The last 45 minutes is what makes it great. Unless you love race car races it's a rental.

    Just saw Rise of Skywalker. I definitely rank it ahead of TLJ. I'll need a second viewing soon since the couple next to me kept talking

    I decided to check out the Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase movie that was released this year. I admit that I thought the trailer looked stupid and didn't give it another thought.

    But I saw it on On Demand this morning and figured I'd check it out.

    I have to say it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. It's clearly aimed at the young female audience but it wasn't an insulting or overly preachy script so that was good.

    And I thought Sophia Lillis did a decent job of portraying this iteration of Nancy Drew.

    Color me very surprised to have actually kind of enjoyed this movie.
