    Watched Zootopia, which is a fun cartoon that adults can enjoy, and John Wick 2, which I would describe as tedious.

    Hitman's Bodyguard; pretty standard action/buddy film. I like Samuel L. Jackson; especially when he's playing Samuel L. Jackson.

    3rd viewing this year. Probably my favorite movie watched this year. The plot is great as well as the photography.

    Killer Joe (2011) by William Friedkin. I think it's Matthew McConaughey's best performance.

    Aparajito (1956, Satyajit Ray)
    The second film in the Apu Trilogy by the late, great filmmaker is heartbreaking and quieting each time I view it - every five years or so. In it a boy in rural India leaves his priestly training to attend university, leaving his widowed mother alone. I'm never sure if I've seen it until about 5 minutes in, when of course, the film elicits memories of my own mother and it all coming flooding back. Essential viewing, imo.

    Over the Holiday weekend, I watched all three parts of Raymond Bernard's Les Misérables. It's not perfect (Marius is portrayed as not just useless, but also lazy. No attempts are made to humanize Javert), but it is pretty much the definitive cinematic adaptation. Harry Baur is appropriately soulful and haunted as Jean Valjean. I particularly enjoyed Max Dearly providing comic relief as Marius' grandfather, Gillenormand.

    "Rumpelstiltskin" (1995)
    The fairy-tale gnome has been imprisoned in a figurine since medieval times, but now he's on the loose in 1990s L.A., where he has nefarious plans for a young widow and her baby son.
    ...silly direct-to-video horror cheez from the writer/director of the original "Leprechaun" ... which should tell you pretty much everything you need to know.

    I didn't know there was a director's cut of Highlander. Any significant changes?

    The Jewel of the Nile.

    Pretty terrible movie but somehow quite watchable. The scene where the horse (donkey??) sits on Danny DeVito had me laughing harder than I've ever laughed in my life. It does seem like the writing sessions consisted of either "who cares, it's got Kathleen and Michael" and "pass the cocaine".

    "The Demolitionist" (1995)

    In the near future, a policewoman shot down in the line of duty (Nicole Eggert of "Charles In Charge" and "Baywatch" -- of all creatures!) is transformed into a cyborg crime fighter and turned loose on the murderous syndicate that controls the city's underworld. Bullets fly, stuff blows up, the end. Sharp eyed genre nerds will notice Heather "Nightmare On Elm Street" Langenkamp and FX maestro Tom Savini playing minor roles in this cheap, cheesy, gender swapped "RoboCop" knock-off.
    Silly but watchable.

    The Zodiac God's Lonely Man

    Snatched - watched it for Goldie. Felt she was kinda underutilized. Mildly entertaining. Mildly. Meh.

    Frequency - my recently departed father was a ham radio enthusiast, so you can understand my interest in a film that allow father and son to communicate through time using one. It was pretty good, though never quite reaching great.

    "Split" - three very good lead performances, engrossing all the way to right before the end, which I can't describe without spoilers, but I can say royally pissed me off.

    First Man Into Space (1959, Robert Day)
    Not intended as a monster flick but that's what happens to this low budget, primitive but handsomely shot sci-fi movie. Released just before the Soviets put the first Man into orbit it was created to predict innovations in space exploration (mostly theoretical) but the narrative payoff is plain hokey. What's worse is that the star, Marshall Thompson, never gets it on with the beautiful (and obvious eye candy) Marla Landi. WTF? :)
