• Movies

    Every Tuesday I look to see what movies came out on DVD. The ones that pique my interest get added to my list of movies to watch. The list usually sits around 100 movies or so. I don't get to the movie theater as often as I would like however they have installed recliners in most of the theaters in my city and they have reserved seating. It's still worth it to experience the big budget action movies on the big screen.

     

    I've done some background extra work for some made-for-TV movies because I really enjoy seeing the movie making process and being behind the scenes. If I could say a line in a movie and have a credit, it would be a dream come true.

     

    Here are the last few movies that I've watched:

    War for the Planet of the Apes

    At the end of the movie, I pictured Charleton Heston getting ready to visit.

    Logan Lucky

    I wanted it to be good, but it's too slow moving to recommend.

    American Assassin

    Good movie. Generic title.

    Wind River

    Remind me never to complain about the snow and cold where I live.

    Bon Cop Bad Cop

    I want to watch the sequel. Need to go back and see how it all began.

    Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle

    A lot of good fun!

    Brigsby Bear

    Definitely a unique story. A little strange, but also interesting to see how that situation would play out.

    Atomic Blonde

    A great example of a strong female lead that doesn't a man to save her. Really good movie.

    Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

    I had no idea that Wonder Woman was inspired by such an orthodox relationship, especially for the era.

    Beatriz at Dinner

    Most of the time I have to look up the meaning of the ending to the artsy movies. This is no exception. I have no idea what the ending meant.

    Baby Driver

    Great, right up until the ending. Then it fell apart.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale

    It's a good movie, but they all seem to be pretty much the same at this point.

    King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

    I really like the dialogue in Guy Ritchie movies.

    Baywatch

    Entertaining, but the movie had as much depth as you would expect.

    Going Out in Style

    A great cast and a light spin on something that affects a lot of people with the latest round of company closures.

    Kong: Skull Island

    Stunning cinematography. Really impressive shots and scenes with CGI. (I would think it easier to get off the island with 3 heroes from the MCU and Wreck It Ralph in the cast.)

    Free Fire

    It reminds me of Reservoir Dogs, but without an interesting story.

    The Circle

    Scary movie because it's easy to see that we are headed in that direction and it's not far off.

    Colossal

    Unique premise. Terrible plot and two dimensional characters. No real depth or explanations of the characters' motivations.

    Split

    Quite the thriller. The most fitting description that I read was 'it's a sequel that you don't know is a sequel'. Looking forward to another installment in this universe.

    CHIPS

    It was really stupid with more gore than expected, but it worked as long as you weren't looking for the original vibe from the TV show.

    Mine

    He was ready for the next step.

    The Cure for Wellness

    It was a lot more strange than I was expecting. The plot isn't very believable.

    Table 19

    I was in the mood for a comedy so it suited my needs at the time, but the plot was terrible and it has a glaring continuity error. Let me know if you spot it.
