Molly's Game - loved
Pitch Perfect 3 - meh
Father Figures - meh
Downsizing - liked it, but the trailer completely got the movie wrong (similar with Suburbicon which I also enjoyed)
Greatest Showman - good songs, but meh
Jumanji - enjoyed it more than I thought I would
Star Wars - meh
Shape of Water - loved
Lady Bird - loved

that's about far enough back...

Oh, and Bright on Netflix was better than I expected.

Agree on Star Wars and Jumanji. Definitely want to check out Shape of Water, Downsizing and Molly's Game.

I thought Bright was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Ever. I have no idea how I made it to the end seeing how I started to check out at the first sight of that fairy.

what i'm really looking forward to is The Post.

Totally agree, the trailer looks amazeballs.

saw The Post over the weekend.  very solid, very Spielberg - not the best movie of the year.  cinematography was really good, had the same kind of uncomfortable composite shots like Bridge of Spies, which really helped build tension. my critiques: pacing for first 15-20 mins felt off, which was probably so they could build the backstories a bit more, and Meryl Streep didn't overly impress me.  Bob Odenkirk, on the other hand, was outstanding.

Saw The Phantom Thread on Friday.
D.D. Lewis is riveting in what is largely a quiet film that put my wife to sleep. (Friday night 10pm show so she'd have fallen asleep to anything.)
PT Anderson has made another fascinating film that I simply must see again.
Jonny Greenwood's score is terrific as well. Worthy of the Oscar nod, I think.

Saturday, I watched something different.
Kong: Skull Island is a terrible movie that fully met my expectations for this sort of terrible movie. Go in expecting a bloated package of cinematic tropes played to their obvious conclusions, some decent CGI bringing the improbable to life, and a shit ton of explosions...

I'd suggest switching it off after the initial smashups but John C Reily comes to the rescue.

Had no idea Mattstick has a 2nd job as an actor/Real American Hero?  Nice work.  :wink:

The Florida Project

Loved it, but itís brutal that itís probably an accurate depiction for many people out there.

The kids were amazing, especially the main girl and the movie does a great job of showing events through their perspectives.

glad that Shape of Water won Best Picture...  but then i just watched Blade Runner 2049, which was remarkable, and should have been in the running.  Deakins winning for cinematography is a no-brainer; it was one of the most stunning movies i've ever seen, and made me wish i had a 4k setup.  just... wow.  it took the look & feel of the original to a whole new level.  some more questions than answers, but to me, a bold Academy would have picked this for Best Picture.

Agreed, it was an all around outstanding movie, but Oscar hates flops.

Batman vs Superman (Ultimate Edition)

not nearly as bad as I was expecting.  maybe it was the Ultimate Edition's added scenes, but it felt like a nicely fleshed-out background to the DC Universe.  I don't think Affleck is the best Batman ever, but he's also certainly not the worst (looking at you, Clooney).  also now appreciate the beginning of Wonder Woman more.

Justice League next, I guess...

Dunkirk is the only one of the bunch I've seen and it is gripping.
Loved every minute of it though, as did my wife.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

Just watched this, loved it for sure. One of the best new movies I've seen in a while.

Also just watched Gomorrah. It's about the Camorra in Italy, it was decent. Good cinematography, interesting plot. It felt grimy, shows what the Mafia in Italy is like these days.  No order, no respect.
