Yes, we both really enjoyed it. She's gone back to see it an additional three times.
Long Day's Journey Into Night -- not the Eugene O'Neill drama, but a recent Chinese release. It is an increasingly surreal story of a man who returns to his home town for his father's funeral, and searches for a long lost love. The final sequence, nearly an hour long, is a single shot, an amazing achievement of blocking and camera movement.
If you are looking for a story that is easy to follow, or lots of fast-paced action, definitely avoid it.
Angry Birds 2. My daughter thought it was a blast. I enjoyed the reclining seats and too much popcorn. Movie was bland with completely random actions happening in it.
David Crosby: Remember My Name
Angel Has Fallen
(3rd one in the Fallen series with Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman)
Actually liked the movie, though it did suffer from poor lighting, even in the daylight scenes and did use those shaky camera and quick cutaways during all the fighting and actions scenes. Other than that, I thought the story was good and the actors were very good, especially Nick Nolte. Jada Pinkett Smith was good in her supporting role too.
Rush: Cinema Strangiato
After the Wedding
Very good drama, albeit a bit soap opera-ish plot. Reviews have not been great, but I did not see the original so I don’t know what I am missing. Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams are both great in this.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
My wife and I had a Tarantino fest at the Regal City North 14 here in Chicago. They brought back Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill films, so we spent a full day in a huge theater with almost nobody in it watching:
Kill Bill Vol 1
Kill Bill Vol 2
Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood
Van Gogh and Japan
Apollo 11 last week and Once upon a time..in Hollywood yesterday.
I'm glad I did.
the last jedi
'Pain and Glory'; the latest Pedro Almodovar
Yes! "Blinded By The Light" is the most recent movie I have seen in the theatre too. Great acting and some very touching moments. I want to see it again for sure.
Pain & Glory 8/10
Saw a couple of comedies yesterday:
Good Boys. Three 6th graders trying to get to a party where they can possibly kiss a girl. R rated, and deservedly so. There were moments when I was helpless with laughter.
Ready Or Not. A horror comedy where a woman marries into a incredibly wealthy, and very strange family, and is forced to play a deadly game of Hide and Seek. Not as funny as the first film, but very fun. If you like films like Happy Death Day and the like, you'll probably like this
True Grit in 2010.
Avengers Endgame - opening night at the Regal Union Square in 4DX. 10/10
once upon a time in.....hollywood
IT 2, unfortunately
No Country For Old Men
Downton Abbey on Saturday afternoon.
