No I didn`t see that one yet.
Interesting...I guess not seeing the first doesn't matter since Creation is a prequel...
Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Had the day off and watched The Dark Knight Blu-ray on my 120” projection screen. It was glorious.
Hidden Figures - The story of a team of female African-American mathematicians who served a vital role in NASA during the early years of the U.S. space program.
Nat King Cole Afraid of the Dark
Unsatisfying. Whitewashed the problems he had within the black community. The affair is mentioned in passing. Lots of talking heads going on about his piano skills, but no explanation or stories and hardly any examples.
No complete songs. People have analyzed Sinatra's skills in depth, but here you just get 'he was one of the most popular singers in the country'. I would agree, but I was looking for somebody to give me a quick lesson about why he was so good.
Pal Joey. I loved it!
Love Sinatra of course and Kim Novak was so damn beautiful...
this movie also has one of my favorite lines of any movie, one he says in one scene to Vera early at her place when leaving her...
it was just great overall. I got to see this again sometime...
'The Last Jedi' (2017) in Imax 70mm. Excellent technical presentation. For the movie - quite entertaining, very camp, overlong.
Amazing documentary. Well worth seeing.
Kronenberg's "Eastern Promises" - excellent.
Prior to that, the superb Norwegian thriller "Headhunters":
I had been wanting to see this movie for a long time but only just got around to it. I thought it was great and would now rank it as my second favorite Tarantino film after Pulp Fiction.
Hidden Figures. I saw it in the theater, but my wife did not. We got the DVD and watched it on NYE. She thought it was very good. I remember that the audience in the movie house actually applauded when it was over. You don't experience that very often these days.
"Sharknado 5: Global Swarming" (2017)
Fin, April, Nova and the gang are back (again) to save the world from yet another series of catastrophic Sharknado outbreaks which threaten the entire planet.
SyFy/Asylum's signature franchise keeps getting bigger, louder, and dumber with each new installment. At this point, forget about getting a coherent story or decent performances. Just turn your brain off and chuckle at the cheap CGI mayhem, the nods to other/better movies, and the endless cameos by D-list celebrities lining up to get munched (which include Fabio, Samantha Fox, Clay Aiken, Gilbert Gottfried, Kathie Lee Gifford, and Margaret Cho, to name just a few, this time out).
The Heavenly Kid
The Decline of Western Civilization: Part III
Life Of Pi
Everyone says: I love you
Sat through 'A Hard Days Night' for the first time in around 20 years.
Zodiac, thanks to all the Fincher fans here who love it.
Now I'm another fan of this movie.
The wife, who hates violence, was fascinated by it (she missed Hurdy Gurdy opening).
I love the way Fincher framed some of his shots. Hitchcock homage with the secretary's scream.
One of the movies that I think it sorely neglected. I think the sauna sequence is one of the most violent things I've ever seen on screen.
At the last second, I remembered a brief remark about it and ordered my wife out of the room.
Yes, a pretty gory movie from very start (in the barber shop) but don't let that put off the squeamish because it's well worth seeing.
Viggio was fantastic in this as he was in A History Of Violence
