    The Florida Project on Amazon. Very bleak subject matter but still a very warm and poignant story. Willem DaFoe is understated and great but the real discovery is the 6 year "Moonie" character. Incredible job for a child actor. I was especially interested because I have a history with the area the movie was set in. (Kissimmee) It accurately captures the irony of the ticky tack setting and denizens that surround the confines of the Magic Kingdom. ( I have also been approached by bootleg perfume sellers in parking lots in that area)

    "Policewomen" (1974)
    Cheap cops n robbers junk about a karate kickin' lady officer (Sondra Currie, sister of the Runaways' Cherie Currie) who goes undercover to infiltrate a "female Mafia" of gold smugglers. Lots of car chases, catfights and a heaping helping of T&A. Currie is purty, but she can't act worth a spit...which is fine because neither can anyone else in this movie!

    Elvis and Nixon (2016)

    Roll on the floor with laughter movie about the day Elvis met the president. The actual meeting is a bit anticlimactic but it's worth seeing for the lead up to the meeting.

    Lynch (One) (2007) - Documentary film that let's me, the viewer, follow David Lynch around as he makes furniture, directs a movie, paints pictures and smokes a lot of cigarettes in a veritable frenzy of activity. There is something absolutely mesmerizing about watching Lynch constantly, compulsively creating things and I found this movie to be very inspiring. There is a ton of cool bonus material on the DVD also. Add to this the 'Lynch (Two)' film from the Inland Empire DVD and it really provides a complete picture of this whirling dervish of an artist. Very cool stuff. Does anybody need any Fixall???

    A lot of film buffs here so I thought I'd post this great promo sequence for those who have never seen it.

    "Joysticks" (1983)
    Small town teens band together when a councilman wants to shut down their favorite hangout - the local video arcade. A cheap, so '80s it hurts comedy loaded with raunchy gags, fart jokes and half naked girls.

    Cookie cutter teen comedies like these were a dime a dozen back in the day; some were better than others. "Joysticks" was pretty terrible, but it's worth a look for its retro value, especially if you're into classic arcade games

    Same for me. I was not impressed by the story when I saw it in the theater, but it sure did look good.
    So I just bought this and watched it last week, trying to force myself to like it.
    The story still reeks, but I was surprised how many good scenes there were in it.

    TRUE OR FALSE?

    As humans, before we watch a movie, if it has meaning to us ahead of time, we tend to build up expectations to a high level.
    Then after we have watched the movie for the first time, we are let down because it was not as good as we expected.

    But when we see it a second time we already know what to expect and seem to enjoy it more.

    I think that's a great theory. I also can find the whole theater experience a bit distracting at times so my focus is better when I watch something at home and can pause to go potty, rewind when I am not clear on something etc. The home theater experience is a wondrous thing.

    Yes, perverse logic.
    The same reasoning applied ( after slagging it off initially ) to Deadpool.
