The Sea of Trees. Netflix. Thoughtful and cool. Van Sant copped out and hollywood explained it which was unnecessary. But a nice change of pace.

Also saw that tom hanks movie of the week about the pilot who landed in the hudson. Meh. Good acting, but it really was like watching a lifetime movie. Worth a watch I guess.

Although it pains me, we saw "Logan". I am, in general, a Marvel fan, but this one just depressed me as well as raising many question sit did not answer. Buts lots of action.

And North Dakota is than the Canadian border?

Sorry, unanswered question.

The 100- I have watched them all so far.  A teenage angst-filled future.  I enjoy it- and the lead is pretty fine too.  In fact, I'm pretty all the actors are uncharacteristically good-looking.

I hate to admit it but I have watched "the 100" I started out Oh Cool SyFi but soon (maybe 10min in) realised there is no Science in the drama. Acting is about as deep as a sheet of paper, plot made me want to scream. It was good to watch as a lecherous old fart, but damn the crap the SyFy channel churns out is below par on every aspect, save the beautiful people.
  A good one to check out, if you have Amazon Prime, is Fortitude. Worth watching, good acting riveting plot set out in an island in the north atlantic (Frozen and desolate)

We saw Wonder Woman this evening.

My wife and kid liked it more than I did, but I do have to agree that it was mostly better than most other superhero flicks. A low bar, I know, but there it is.

At least this one started a stunningly beautiful woman rather that some dude in spandex.

Saw:

The Wall
Guardians 2
King Arthur

Liked them all with KA surprising me. I liked it more than I thought I would. Guardians 2 was no disappointment and I had high hopes.

Wonder Woman today. They certainly picked an excellent actress to play the part. Gal Gadot is totally the image.

I enjoyed it.

Dunkirk One of the best films I have seen in a long , long time. It tells the story without creating a Hollywood hero, 5 star.

I saw 'Baby Driver'
The strong tie to the music was interesting, but also a bit distracting (by being a bit over done).  A nice gimmick taken to far?
I think they took 'Baby' to far too.
GREAT music.  Wide variety of genres too.
Very nice cast, though I'm not a 'fan' of Kevin Spacey he did well.
The main plot is... stringing along character development.  Not my favorite.
Not enough chase scenes.  The ones they had didn't really impress me.  Didn't live up to the hype.
The end of the movie blatantly left questions unanswered - total setup for a sequel.

Just seen Dunkirk.

Obviously, it's a tiny representation of what actually happened. It was bigger and much, much messier.

But, that aside. what a movie.

I was very close to tears at the end.

We rented Kong: Skull Island from Redbox tonight. Good gawd this was a piece of crap. Horrible acting by notable actors, terrible script, completely fake characters, unreal in every way. Comically bad by accident. If all you want is action, it would probably do. Otherwise, don't waste your $1.60. I'll watch some pretty goofy, campy movies and enjoy them but this truly sucked. Most of the reviews are good - don't believe them. I'm kinda pissed that I rented it. This spoiled a string of good movies that we have watched lately.

Atomic Blonde: Saw it in the theater today. I'll lay out the caveat that I was beat from the last few days of getting Mom's house ready to put on the market so I could have been tired. I liked the opening and the ending. There were parts throughout it that I liked. It seemed that I lost focus during one section. Normally I would say that part dragged but, as noted, it might not have. As a gender-swapping-action-movie, I rate Selma Heyak in "Everly" as the clear winner for that title. I'll give "Atomic Blonde" another go as a rental. I really liked the ending.

And yes, that movie FAR exceed any- and everything I was expecting.

It helps that I really did NOT want to sit through another WWII film after Captain America, and Wonder Woman definitely went a different way for the most part.

Spiderman: Homecoming. I thought it was good all the way through, but I was SUPER put off by Stark and Hap being complete and utter douches to Peter until he actually did the thing he was trying to do, then of course they thought him great. That bugged the hell out of me through two watchings... until I heard something on a radio interview with Tom Holland. "Once you put yourself in Peter's perspective in the movie, that becomes much more understandable and believable. Teenagers always thing everyone's always coming down on them way too hard. Maybe they were. Maybe they weren't. But from Peter's perspective, they always were, all the time."

Rejiggering my thoughts after that made the movie so much better for me.

The wife has been away to England on a choir pilgrimage for almost two weeks, and is coming back today. I think we'll be catching up with movies  this coming week. I'm sure she'd have been most put out if I went and kept current while she was going through the drudgery of listening to choirs in thousands-year-old cathedrals, and singing evensongs in beautiful little towns and cities all over England, then finding pubs and ales to her liking. Yes, yes... I'm sure she barely survived such awful chores.

Wind River.

Wow.

Let me start by saying that *usually* when we go to a 4 or 5 PM $5 Tuesday movie, we're part of a handful of people. That was not the case today! The theater was easily 2/3 full. That was unexpected. WOM for this movie is very, very good!

Now back to the film. I love Jeremy Renner. I love anything he's ever done and will probably love anything else he ever does. He OWNS this movie. His performance is so raw, so genuine, so gritty; he will deserve every acting accolade that comes his way for this role.

The scenery is stunning and soul-crushing at the same time. The score is dark and it draws you in to the visuals. The story is tragic (especially given that it is inspired by real events) and some of the violence is somewhat graphic, but the acting is superb.

This film is very emotional...or at least it was for me. (And not just because of the mini Twilight reunion of actors - Graham Greene, Gil Birmingham, and Julia Jones.
I used to make a bigger impression.

I just saw Blade Runner 2049 tonight.  Second time to see it, and damn, is that film amazing.  I'm probably going to see it again before it leaves the theaters, and multiple viewings are something I almost never do.

If you're on the fence about seeing it, do so.  Don't wait for video- see it in the theater.

The new Thor was very good. Dancing along the line between too jokey and no humor at all; always landing on the "keeping it reigned back" side so that we knew those who made it were still serious about the content. Even addressed the Planet Hulk aspect of the MCE.

Stay to the end because there's a second clip that you won't want to miss.

I just saw Blade Runner 2049 tonight.  Second time to see it, and damn, is that film amazing.  I'm probably going to see it again before it leaves the theaters, and multiple viewings are something I almost never do.

If you're on the fence about seeing it, do so.  Don't wait for video- see it in the theater.

We saw it twice in the theatre and that's saying something, considering it runs us about $42 for the two of us for a standard showing, not including the popcorn  :o

Thor was a little too much like a music video but it was a fun watch. Justice League was pretty good. Coco is really good if you like music and family. Wonder woman was pretty good.

Sheri and I caught Thor's newest one over the weekend.  By far it's the best of the three Thor movies with the 2nd being the worst.  I was very well done and I loved the comedy in it.  It was spot-on Marvel comedy like is shown in Iron Man.  This Thor movie is my favorite of all of the Marvel movies put out thus far (17 in total, I believe).

I'm very much looking forward to the Black Panther, which is the next Marvel movie set to be released (Feb 2018)

We went to see Murder on the Orient Express last weekend. Lots of big name stars on that cast. There are lots closeups and unfortunately, some of the cast members aren't up to the task. You get the feeling they're just faking it.  At other times, their interpretation of the caracters is very good. Not just in front of the camera. Too bad because the views, the sets, the script, the other actors, everything respects Agatha Christies' story line. Minus points to Branagh, Poireau was a very vain persona and up until his death, he hid his age. Not so here. Michelle Pfeiffer and Penelope Cruze also get bad marks.
So, I'd say an uneven movie that was still fun to watch.

"Wonder".  Great film.  I cried.  Like tears on the cheeks at one point.  Saw it with the fam, and I highly recommend it.

Last Friday my beautiful sister insisted on taking my oldest grandchild for whatever she wanted to do. Shopping, etc. Allie wanted to go see that movie. She'd already read the book. They both loved it.

I went to see "The Last Jedi" today. The storyline is very similar to the original movie (Episode IV) with the focus on eliminating the past while looking forward to the future. Good continued development of characters while introducing a couple of new ones. Which introduces some new dynamics to the relationships we've already seen. The biggest surprise for me was the appearance of a character we all know and love. It was kind of predictable but in a good way and the special effects was never intrusive. The departure of the previous generation is firm and sometimes heart wrenching but Luke's exit is truly an homage to the exit of Obi Wan. Just in a different and surprising way. All in all, I give a solid 9 out of 10. The final scene leaves me begging for more.
