    But, does the girl in the poster even come close to looking like Carrie Fisher?

    Haha. Well, a likeness of Carrie Fisher was enough at that point in her career - and the Star Wars franchise to sell the film. Other than being the daughter of Debbie Reynolds who knew who she was? And speaking of likenesses - I waited for what seemed like eons before I could get my hands on any action figure which looked remotely like the Alec Guinness version of Obe Wan Kenobe. Then after, what, almost four decades - long after his death - Guinness' estate finally gave permission to use his image for mass production. Finally, I had a miniature "original likeness" of Obe Wan in my hands! I put it back on the shelf. It wasn't special any more.

    Just finished watching "John Wick" & "John Wick 2". They were OK but not great. Recommenede for Keanu Reeves

    I didn't find their performance particularly compelling, but it is a shame more folks didn't make concert films in Imax. There was a concert film with multiple artists that HDNET used to show and it was a feast for the eyes as well. Definitely should have been the format for Pink Floyd's PULSE. Ah well.

    We're No Angels (1989) starring Robert DeNiro and Sean Penn, with Demi Moore, Hoyt Axton, Wallace Shawn, Bruno Kirby, and the film debut of John C. Reilly in a small role.
    I really like this film, I always have, wish it was on Blu-ray.
    Really underrated. Penn's performance is excellent, he's better than DeNiro here.

    The Heart of the Sea.
    Chris Hemsworth was he playing a skinny Thor, or what. Shot in 3D looked terrible in 2D.

    Saw, just now, Splendor In The Grass for the first time.
    It went for me from how beautiful Natalie Wood looked early on to
    to tearing out my guts.
    What an incredible, heartbreaking movie.

    An Airplane/I’m Gonna Get You Sucka style spoof of 70s blaxploitation flicks. Not as good as those, but still pretty funny. I liked it.

    The Sin of Harold Diddlebock (1947) Harold Lloyd stars as a guy who loses his job after 22 years and tries alcohol for the first time. Howard Hughes immediately withdrew the film and cut about 20 minutes out of it, retitling it Mad Wednesday. Worth watching for Preston Sturges's over-literate dialogue.

    I knew I shouldn't have gone in after reading about the hype. It never usually affects me but this time it did. It is a good movie but I didn't see the "shine" everyone is talking about. I'll watch again at another time and let it soak in a little better.
    (The dog poop should have an end credit) :D

    In the Valley of Elah

    Compelling movie. Sad that it's based on true events and that this is how it really is for a lot of our veterans.

    A moody, slow, arty ghost story with Ruth Wilson and Paula Prentiss (!). While I can enjoy a slow pace, this one never seemed to find second gear or actually arrive at a destination.
