    Cloud Atlas - second approach at it. Well worth the time spent.

    "Bright" (2017)
    Will Smith stars in this strange Netflix original which mashes up the "buddy cop" action and fantasy genres. Set in a modern day Los Angeles where humans live alongside Orcs, elves, and other fairy-tale creatures, Smith's a burnt-out L.A.P.D. cop saddled with the first-ever Orc police officer as his new partner. Together the mismatched pair try to keep a powerful source of magic out of the hands of a vicious street gang as well as an evil creature who needs it to take over the world.
    Reviews of this flick have been pretty brutal, but I mostly enjoyed "Bright." It reminded me a lot of the '80s favorite "Alien Nation," and Smith is always fun to watch. It runs on a bit too long for its own good but lotsa stuff gets shot and blown up along the way so at least I wasn't bored.

    What a trick/turn in the plot - the "payoff" was great!

    Gone Girl. Shocked at how ridiculous this was. I usually like Fincher's stuff a lot. I mean, The Game was as mad as a box of frogs but it was at least intriguing.

    A crew aboard the International Space Station (ISS) performs a successful capture of a space probe with a sample inside. The crew is tasked with studying the sample, which may be the first proof of extraterrestrial life. However, the study eventually backfires as the organism grows and gains intelligence.
    Sounds somewhat familiar ? In space,no one can hear you steal...

    Life cannot hold a candle to Ridley Scott's Alien but it's not bad and visually impressive.

  16. Of course it was. It was a thriller. Can you think of one Hitchcock movie that was realistic? The Game? Pretty ridiculous as well but fun.

    Per usual, the sequel isn’t as good as the original. Stepford-Narco Baroness Julianne Moore is no Samuel Jackson with a lisp. Colin Firth is back because nobody ever dies from getting shot in the head. Channing Tatum shows up for about a minute and Elton John is surprisingly good.

    The final Galahad/Galahad/Whiskey fight is a very impress single camera take (obviously pieces together from multiple sources and CG-edited into a single shot) set to The BossHoss’s Word Up!

    3.5/5. Would watch again

    The Boss Baby. It’s unfunny and boring.

    I still enjoy the odd Hitchcock I've not seen and I've not seen The Game for years. I watched The Handmaiden last week which I really enjoyed. I guess that's a thriller.

    2010 - my first time seeing this and the last, I don't know how one can follow up 2001 - A Space Odyssey, I consider that film a piece of abstract science fiction art, in comparison 2010 is a b-grade matinee popcorn movie, it falls woefully short in all areas.

    All the Pretty Horses from 2000, not bad, based on a Cormac McCarthy book.
