Wanting to see The Last Jedi, but they are still either selling out or only front row seats are available here.

Thank You!

Saw The Greatest Showman. I went in with no expectations and I enjoyed it for a light hearted musical movie. It's in no way deep, glosses over a lot about PT Barnum and is not really a biopic in anyway. It's a loose rags to riches story with a few catchy up beat songs.

While released in November, I saw Murder on the Orient Express yesterday.  It paid homage to the old-timey, whodunit movie. It was well done and was beautifully made.....the cinematography was fabulous.  If you enjoy this type of genre, I recommend it.  Lots on big names in the cast and it wasn't until the very end that I realized Kenneth Branagh, who I knew was a producer and the director of the movie, was playing Inspector Poirot.

Not a new movie, but I saw Logan Lucky on a flight over the holidays and enjoyed it very much.  Fun caper movie.    I also saw Wonder Woman, It and A Ghost Story, and was somewhat disappointed with each of them for different reasons.

I really wanted to see A Ghost Story but mrbarney wasn't having it. I will have to see it on my own

It is very slow and depressing.  :cry:  But I suppose it is pretty good if you like that sort of thing.  : pbbt:

I watched a new release movie and even stayed awake for the whole thing! :shocker!: Last night we watched The Shape of Water. It was pretty good. Honestly ruined by the fact it was filmed in Toronto. Having lived here my whole life I recognise any exterior shot and it brings down the 4th wall hard. I preferred Pan's Labyrinth. 7/10 for originality.

Now give me my 8/10, insistor!!

I feel like I've seen this one before so I've lost some interest. Also, I feel like the writer was looking for validation. 6/10

Next time I'll pad my review with some torture porn to pique your interest. :mischief:: pbbt::wtf:

Saw The Post with my 20 year old daughter. Very well done and I highly recommend it. It was interesting this occurred when the paper was going public, which added a huge dilemma to whether or not to publish the story.  There was powerful visual of Kay Graham walking into a large meeting and being the only woman in a sea of white men. I pointed out to my daughter that for about the first 10 years of my career, that was still commonplace......now, there is often other women and a people of color, but not always. She was astounded by the number of times one could have substituted "Trump" for "Nixon" in the dialogue. I am certain the screenplay was written so this point would be very noticeable.

Watched Get Out last night after hearing good things about it. I really liked it. It reminded me a little bit of the old movie The 'Burbs. A real creep factor to start and then some grisly horror stuff at the end. 4/5

DH and I saw Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle with his kids this weekend. I watched the original for the first time beforehand so I had the backstory. It was a fun movie, especially if you like the Rock, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black. Funny for the kids, and funny for the adults as well. Lots of action. Very entertaining.

I saw The Phantom Thread this weekend.

Despite the superb cast (this is Daniel Day Lewis' "last film" or so he claims), "fabulous" director and the highest acclaim (91 on metacritic!!), I thought it was an implausible and pretentious piece of precious nonsense masquerading as a good movie.  To make matters worse, the backdrop was a fashion house in 1950's London -- an era of beautiful, glamorous, and exciting fashion, and even the clothes totally sucked.  :cry::laugh:

The only bright spot, was that I didn't take my husband to see this movie.  Had I insisted that he accompany me, I am sure I would have been served with divorce papers before the film was over.

Jar Jar sucks.

:laugh::cry:  Damn, that is too bad.  I thought P.T. Anderson and DDL were brilliant in There Will Be Blood.  But your bad review is not the first I've seen.  Someone else I respected (can't remember who now) said the only thing worthwhile about it is Jonny Greenwood's soundtrack.  Which was another brilliant part of There Will Be Blood.  Come to think of it, maybe my time would be better spent just rewatching that movie.
Parent - - By gadget girl Date 2018-01-16 12:32 PM
the soundtrack was amazing.  I loved his earlier film Boogie Nights.  If you end up seeing it, let me know what you think.  I tried to think if somehow I missed the brilliance of this movie, but couldn't come up with anything. :laugh:
Parent - By jennyO Date 2018-01-16 1:30 PM
I forgot he did Boogie Nights  -- that is SUCH A GREAT MOVIE!  :cool::cool: Seriously, one of my favorites.  The humor, tension, and pathos.  Oh my god. Philip Seymour Hoffman was just genius, too.

Finished Fences last night. The performances were really good, the story and dialogue are as well, it just doesn't need to be a movie. Or at least not this movie. It doesn't seem to add anything that the play wouldn't provide and I think actually be better doing.

I now have 1 more best picture nomination to see from last year. Manchester By The Sea. Who's ready to be depressed?

I enjoyed Manchester by the Sea despite it being seriously depressing.

Watched Dunkirk over the weekend. I liked the way the movie was shot and the intertwining of stories. Also liked the dog fight scenes as it showed lots of misses and the hits weren't some big explosion...the planes slowly went to the ocean and crashed. Makes me want to see the Churchill movie that is out to get more of the backstory.
