    "Knives Out" last night...had high expectations, especially considering the cast. It was a little boring, my wife even fell asleep in the theater! Lots of missed opportunity for humor with all the kooky characters.....disappointing really.

    On amazon, hustlers w jlo. Wife wanted to watch and I was prepared to hate it but surprisingly good. Realistic portrayal of stippers too. I know because a plastic surgeon friend lost his career to similar type women.
    Regardless, jlo is a heck of a talent. Dance, sing, comedy, drama. Can do it all. Not too bad looking at 50 either

    another pleasant surprise. dolomite with eddie murphy. decent story and few funny lines. had no idea it was based on real characters and events. the scenes in the movie within the movie looked exactly like the real dolomite films. check it out

    Star Wars ep 9. Only reason I went was because I saw the previous 8...it was what I expected. Nothing great. I wonder how many side story movies they'll milk off this main franchise.

    Mrs Lowry & Son on Netflix. About the relationship LS Lowry (English artist) had with his mother. He lived most of his life about 20 minutes walk from where I was born and my mum still lives.

    parasite. had no interest in it despite the critics raves when it 1st came out but had to finally check it out now that it won oscar. what a nothing movie on all levels. cinematiclly, the sets were will done but overall it was about a sophisticated as a good cable tv show. the plot was very straight forward and couldve been told in half the time. and i dont see any deep metaphoric meaning in it either. there is no allegory for all of society in it. basically, a family of grifters con a wealthy family and everyone suffers in the end.
    i would love to know what is it about certain movies that make them critic darlings? what is the secret sauce? this was a totally forgettable movie

    Hair love. Best six minutes I’ve spent in a while.

    Parasite before that before oscars. Been to S Korea many times. Perhaps that helped but I disagree with the review just above.

    Did prefer 1917 or OUATIH for best picture.

    The Irishman

    Meh. I have not finished it yet but so far it seems to be just another Goodfellas template. Just that much more boring and slow. Maybe bc the actors take twice as long to sit down and get up :)

    totally agree on Irishman. I tried to finish it several times but only got about 1/2 way thru. no comparison to old scorcese like goodfellas, casino, bull, etc. those were amazing.

    It is one of those movies that people like only because other people like it.

    I thought they were kidding by nominating it.

    It had no good guys. No bad. guys. No plot. It is the packing peanuts of the cinematic universe.

    Bad Boys 3.

    It sucked. Awful. The plot is weak. The end is terrible. And it did not have the beautiful imagery from.1 and 2 (i guess michael bay touch?).

    It felt like a fast and furious knock off.

    WS has been putting out giant bombs for a while now. Hopefully people will quit giving him jobs.
