    "Enter the Dragon" (1973)
    A kung fu expert turned secret agent (Bruce Lee) infiltrates a secret martial arts tournament at a super villain's private island fortress, so he can take apart the host's smuggling operations from the inside. Many butts are kicked along the way, with a little help from fellow bad-asses John Saxon (who apparently was a black belt in real life) and the awesomely Afro'd Jim Kelly.

    "The Show Must Go On: The Queen & Adam Lambert Story" (2019)
    Flashy rock doc tells the story of how Queen and "American Idol" runner up Adam Lambert came together to honor Freddie Mercury and continue the band's legendary run. I've never been more than a casual Queen fan, but after watching Lambert belt out a selection of their classics on concert stages around the world in this doc, I have to say that they found the right guy.

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    I liked the first two films in this series, and the two leads. But this is just more run of the mill demonic possession stuff. It legit does look really good the way its filmed, and the effects are decent. The scares aren't particularly scary. Maybe I've seen too many of this type of film?

    The story also seems all over the place but they tie it together by the end, for the most part.

    7/10

    As a diehard fan of the first two, I didn't have high expectations for this one -- if only because James Wan wasn't stapled to the director's chair for it.

    Guess I'll wait to give it a rental. Want to see Wrath of Man and Furious 9 theatrically, though...

    The case they should have tapped into for another Warren story was the one the chilling book Satan's Harvest was based on, about the farmer who was terrorized by unholy entities. Would have made a great film.

    Another Thin Man (1939) - The 3rd "Thin Man" movie on BD. Powell and Loy are great as usual with Shemp Howard as the icing on the cake. I've been upgrading many classics in my collection to BD before physical media becomes extinct.

    I would also count myself as a fan of Wan’s, but I didn’t find myself missing him in the director’s chair here. One of his protégés took the reins and does fine with it.

    The whole thing just has kind of an episodic, TV-movie vibe to it that has more to do with the story pacing, I would say. Give it a shot if you’re a fan of the first two.

    The original Planet of the Apes & Beneath the Planet of the Apes... haven't seen any of the originals since the '80s... showing them to my 8-year-old boy, trying to explain to him how big the franchise was back in the '70s before Star Wars hit the scene... he liked the first one, the sophomore not so much, but he's also watching the '70s cartoon of his own accord so I guess the franchise has some appeal to him...

    Extraordinary story of an Australian family, rocked by a serious accident.
    Naomi Watts is very good in this.

    Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar on BD. Inspired by 1960's Woody Allen movies, I'm so sure!

    The Conjuring 2 It was okay, probably watch the third movie too.

    Hunting Ground Low budget Sasquatch movie, but fairly decent.

    Runaway Train Jon Voight plays a prisoner that breaks out of jail and hijacks a train. Pretty decent action film.

    I believe that's what they were going for with regard to the vibe -- it is supposed to take on a different aesthetic compared to the first two, and I read somewhere that the narrative was based on the basic framing of The Exorcism of Emily Rose (so that's why it has a kind of LA Law-meets-the-occult feel).
