    I was watching this documentary about the band Chicago on Netflix and was wondering if it is the same CNN one.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri (2017)

    Pretty incredible and very dark but if the values reflected in this film are in any way mainstream we've reached the bottom of the slippery slope.

    XTC ~ This is Pop (2017)

    Doco on the Dear God band. Probably over 60% accurate. Great if you love OO/HO model trains. Highlight: Andy Partridge's childhood drawings and Colin Moulding's (who's name's NOT Partridge)uncanny resemblance to Steve Coogan

    A very entertaining movie and beautifully made (cinematography, lighting, sets (real or otherwise), costumes,...). However, a predictable and routine plot, teen-movie scares and unnecessary gore. What is this fixation that Del Torro has with facial mutilation? Still, I enjoyed it despite those flaws.

    "Our Man in Casablanca" (aka "The Killer Lacks a Name," 1966)
    Spanish/Italian Euro-spy fun, with American bit player Lang Jeffries as a secret agent who tangles with femme fatales and a bad guy with an electrified metal hand (!) on the trail of some stolen documents.
    As usual with these cheap 007 knockoffs, the story eventually becomes a hopeless muddle but the exotic Moroccan scenery is lovely and so is the female eye candy.

    It was my 10 year old son's turn to pick a movie on Netflix. This is what we got...

    "Expelled" (2015)

    After breaking the rules one too many times, a teenage prankster finally gets himself kicked out of school. If his parents find out, he'll be packed off to a military he embarks on a series of crazy schemes aimed at weaseling his way back in before Mom and Dad discover what's happened. Lots of hi-jinks that owe much to "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" ensue.
    If your kids have never seen "Ferris," they might get a kick out of this preteen-friendly comedy...but I felt like I was watching a cheap remake. Also, the kid in the lead role (who is apparently a YouTube star of some kind) was such a smug little prick that I found myself wishing someone would just punch him in the throat after about ten minutes. :D

    In other words... if you don't have kids, there's no need to bother with this one.

    Affliction. Nolte should won the Oscar for best actor.

    The Machinist
    It is a good psychological thriller that owes a lot to David Fincher. It was pretty dark and disturbing, but also interesting. Christian Bale was great as always. It does feel a bit dated in terms of style; aesthetically, it is very late 90's/early 00's, probably due to the obvious influence of David Fincher's work from that era.

    The Greatest Showman. Very good movie, although I had trouble getting used to the musical aspect of it. The fact that the musical style didn't match the time or what was going on bothered me. Not sure why, because that is common for musicals on the stage.
  24. Concussion - While conducting an autopsy on former NFL football player Mike Webster (David Morse), forensic pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) discovers neurological deterioration that is similar to Alzheimer's disease. Omalu names the disorder chronic traumatic encephalopathy and publishes his findings in a medical journal. As other athletes face the same diagnosis, the crusading doctor embarks on a mission to raise public awareness about the dangers of football-related head trauma.

    Batman (1989)
    I haven't seen this movie in probably ten years and, upon revisiting it, I'm not sure I ever saw the whole thing until now. I enjoyed it at first, but I got pretty bored with it about halfway through. I liked the beginning, where it set itself up as a gritty crime film, but it just ended up getting sillier as it went along. I didn't find Michael Keaton interesting as Batman (especially compared to Christian Bale) and, as much as I like Jack Nicholson, he was just too much at times. That wasn't really his fault though; it was the campy writing and ridiculous makeup that grated on me more than his performance. I thought it was decent overall, but I can't see myself revisiting it.
