Palm Springs - Hulu. Holy cow, this movie was fantastic. If y’all have Hulu it is a must see.

Martin Lawrence is fatter and mailing it in.

It had some OK moments but overall a mediocre movie.

The first time I have seen Joe Pantoliano in years.

Crockett ans Tubbs will always be to me the true Bad Boys of Miami.

Naw, Hulu did away with their free tier years ago, though there is still a month long Free Trial available.

Palm Springs...Absolutely amazing. Best rom-com since Crazy Rich Asians, but much smaller film. It was the highest paid for movie at Sundance this year. Just perfect! So enjoyable and Samberg and Milioti were so delightful together. Very reminiscent of another favorite of mine, Wristcutters: A Love Story. Love and have seen that one so many times. I have a feeling, Palm Springs will be similar. Going in cold was best way to go. Thoroughly enjoyed. Just pure fun, updates conventions and borrows from others. Worked so well. This is a must, especially during this time. I wasn’t even going to finish in one sitting, but couldn’t help it. I mean only lean 83 minutes without credits, but I was going to watch a little, but became utterly and compulsively hooked.

4/5 stars

Palm Springs - Enjoyed it!
The Old Guard - Enjoyed it. (Would gladly watch a sequel.)
The Lovebirds - wasn't bored by it

The direct to streaming flicks have greatly improved lately, even though Lovebirds was an exception. I'll watch Greyhound tomorrow.

The Dark Knight (2008)

I've re-visited this film more times than I care to count.

Still love it.

Rambo Last Blood, second viewing. Still hate it
The Post. Well made but less about the Pentagon Papers and more on freedom of the press
All The Presidents Men. Classic film always love it
Frost Nixon. Absolutley Brilliant
Greyhound. Biggest disappointment in recent years. All digital and weak story. Hanks could do so much better

Avengers: Endgame (2019) — Another re-watch and while it does have plenty of plot issues and conveniences, still a satisfying and entertaining conclusion to the decade long storyline. Still think this is a step below Infinity War as Thanos was a far better villain there and here. ****¼/*****

The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) — Fun and entertaining action flick. Sure, the effects look dated and a few unintentionally funny moments, but Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson were good together. ***½/*****

Would like to see a studio like Shout (who has released Warner catalogs in the past) come up with a Collector's Edition with features, current Blu-ray only has a trailer..

We watched the Black Cauldron last night for the first time. What a strange mish-mash of a movie.

Probably because most of them would have been released in the theaters

The dog looked fake

They could not use better CGI or a combination of practical and CGI effects?


If Harrison Ford was not in this I would have never watched it.

I noticed there was no "Fox" in the opening 20th Century FOX intro and the Blu-ray had Disney like menus and presentation and guess this will be the norm now with the Disney takeover.

Emma. (2020) — Thinly plotted but enjoyable enough drama-comedy with a nice performance from Anya Taylor-Joy. Never read the Jane Austen novel nor seen any of the other adaptations, so I don't know how this one compares, but I liked it well enough. ***/*****

It came out in 2006 and still relevant today. Scary how that was 14 years ago and time flies.

Trump could never be as evil as Chancellor Sutler?

***1/2 (****) Photographer Richard Billingham's first film recounts incidents in his life growing up with his mom & dad in the 70's & 80's. I really liked the film although some scenes were tough to watch but I could not look away. Well acted and very realistically depicted. You can tell the Billingham wanted to recreate his growing up down to the very last detail. I would say if you like films from Mike Leigh & Ken Loach, you may want to check this out although it definitely is not for everyone. I thought my family was dysfunctional, Ray & Liz makes my parents seem like Ozzie & Harriet!

Pimped (2018) — Mixed feelings about this one. Some really dark humor that was inconsistent, acting by Ella Scott Lynch and Benedict Samuel wasn't bad and had some odd chemistry considering what he does to her. Could've gone I Spit on Your Grave or Natural Born Killers, but doesn't really amount to much in the end. On the plus side, the cinematography was impressive. **½/*****

Treasure Hunters (2015) — Awful in every respect. Terrible sound design, bad acting, atrocious editing, cheap production. And even though it is mercifully short (69 minutes), still was bored out of my mind, nearly dozing off a time or two. ZERO/*****

It is on Netflix streaming with Jason Mantzoukas and Tony Revolori from the Grand Budapest Hotel.

I liked it and thought it was pretty good.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut (1982)

Never get tired of re-watching this film.

I have fond memories of seeing the finale on TV, out of context, thinking it was the scariest film I had ever seen

It had some laughs but only watched it since I saw Alec Baldwin in the cast and he has only two scenes in the movie.

THE OLD GUARD (2020)

One of the more evocative film titles of recent years leads into a serious exploration of the curse and glory of immortality within the frame of a near-generic action film.

Life without consequence seems to be part of the message here for characters enduring immortality. They live in a state of ennui barely able to perceive events beyond the circle of their day to day actions but continuing on and on because, what else is there?

There are really only two central characters. The first, Andy, is played by Charlize Theron who approaches the role with a very tight, restrained performance, letting very little in emotionally and revealing very little. It might be seen as a passive performance but she gets away with a lot with her eyes.

The second main character is Nile, played by Kiki Lane. Lane is new to me and faces a more difficult task than Theron as all her emotion needs to be on the surface. This is a character facing unimaginable stress in trying to both understand and live the impossible, lashing out in different ways and needing to use voice and body to communicate uncertainty. Lane manages to convey all that is needed effectively and this is a superior acting effort.

The film does feature one significant horror scene where a character spends hundreds of years at the bottom of the ocean in a kind of iron maiden, drowning, coming to life, drowning again and suffering beyond measure. It haunted me as I watched it. It haunts me now.

The action scenes are fine if a little low key – basic gun battles and close up throwing moves that would not look out of place in one of Steven Seagals’s direct to DVD efforts. The music score is appalling, fighting against the intent of scenes rather than supporting them and all of the music choices feel wrong.

I came to this one fairly cold and would have been unlikely to see it if it had a cinema release. I think this film is a good example of why cinema as a big screen concept really needs to die.

Safe (2017) — Ridiculous and predictable thriller, which also doesn't make a lick of sense, that features Jason London overacting, and making really stupid decisions, and Fiona Dourif probably doing her best with some terrible material and dialogue. This is one of those movies that is a single location which can work (see Phone Booth) but even that movie action takes place elsewhere, in this everything takes place over a monitor or off-screen; makes sense with the twist but nevertheless makes for a less-than-captivating thriller. *½/*****
