Zodiac - This movie was really good. I don't know how I never saw this. I need to just dive into Fincher's work. I love it every time I see it.

Ghost in the Shell (2017)

"Don't send a rabbit to kill a fox."

This was a bit better than I expected and it looked pretty (like a sanitized a Bladerunner), but it still feels like a good copy of a Rembrandt---the elements are there, but it's not the real thing.

I remember watching a TV special about that madman. I was still basically a kid, but it made my skin crawl to no end.

MST3K: Pumaman (1980/1998)

"It's S&M day at the Field Museum."

It's been a heavy last 24 hours after finding out a friend accidentally hit and killed a guy with his car so I decided on a light, familiar distraction tonight (I think Ed's favorite episode and one of mine).

1) I need to see that episode

2) Damn, you and your friend have my sympathies.

The Bag Man (2014)

"Just because it's inevitable doesn't mean it's imminent."

Despite like Cusak movies and hitman movies especially, this one fell flat for me.

Insidious: The Last Key (2017)

"What? I get the death chamber and he gets bible camp with the most beautiful girl on earth? That's not a democracy.
-You're the only one I trust to go down there with me.
Don't patronize me woman."

Alright. Hits the marks for a modern ghost movie, but doesn't break new ground or anything.

Saw The Post. Great film, well-acted, and very relevant too. Williams's score was sparse especially for a Spielberg film, but its use in the climax was fantastic. - 8.5 / 10

My 1:40 showing sold out though, and it was surprisingly a mix of older people, and some younger ones too. I don't even think my The Last Jedi showing had as many people in it as my Post screening did. Nuts!

Bone Tomahawk (2015)

"This is why frontier life is so difficult. Not because of the Indians or the elements but because of the idiots."

Loved it. Much of it's just a good western (posse movie), but the cannibal tribe action can get brutal real quick.

MST3K: Time Chasers (1994/1997)

"The movie really heightens the lack of interest in the film."

MST3K: Sidehackers [aka Five the Hard Way] (1969/1990)

"Now that sidehacking is so big, it's really interesting to see its humble origins."

Pay the Ghost (2015)

"Why didn't you protect him?"

An alright ghost mystery.

Dukes of Hazzard (2005)

"Guy come out of an antique shop carrying a big grandfather's clock. Bumped into this drunk, broke the clock. Guy said, 'Why don't you watch where you're going?' The drunk says, 'Why don't you carry a wristwatch like everybody else.'"

Saw Thor Ragnarok this weekend.



Enjoyed it, but I could see where people who thought it was too jokey were coming from. I went in thinking that was an odd complaint, especially since I've really enjoyed the humor in Marvel movies before, with some of my favorites being ones that are the most humorous, but somehow some of the humor here, while still funny, didn't work as well. I dunno, maybe it just felt a bit jarring in spots, with humor juxtaposed with situations that seemed like they should be a little more serious. It made the bad guys feel less menacing than perhaps they should have in some cases.

Missing in Action (1984)

"We'll figure something out."

Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

"We really shook the pillars of heaven, didn't we?"


The first was because I just finished watching the Ken Burns series on the Vietnam War (yeah, I watch some modern TV, when it's limited run like this) with the fam and wanted to watch a positive version on the POWs. The second is in honor of Carpenter's 70th birthday. I forgot that the two movies share an actor (James Hong).

It's really quite good. Depends on how you like your Spielberg however. I was utterly enthralled from start to finish though.

James Hong is a massively underrated actor. Love his voice!

Molly's Game - Great. Didn't even know this was a Sorkin written movie. Jessica and Idris are both great and finding out which celebrities were involved in all of it iggs even more fascinating. I may have to pick up the book
