• 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:

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    There are a lot of angry people in this movie. It's a great story with a lot of nuances and subplots.

    The Mountain Between Us

    Worked out a little too perfectly, but an interesting situation. Life would never be the same afterwards.

    Fifty Shades Freed

    Had some great sex scenes and then turned into a thriller with a side of drama and then the sex scenes were no more.

    Deadpool 2

    Better than I expected. The story had more depth than the trailers showed.

    Bon Cop Bad Cop 2

    I think I enjoyed the sequel better than the original. The sequel is less silly and has a better story. It's still silly, just less so.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    A good, lighthearted Marvel movie.

    Only the Brave

    Great movie and I found another job that I don't want to do.

    Breakfast at Tiffany's

    I always heard references to this movie so I figured I'd watch it. Not sure what all the hype is about.

    The Nightmare Before Christmas

    The movie is 25 years old and my wife had never seen it. It holds up pretty well.

    Paddington 2

    A fun sequel to the original.

    The Joy Luck Club

    I had never seen it and heard it mentioned every once in a while over the years. I didn't know what to expect, but I figured there would be more happiness in a movie with Joy and Luck in the title.

    The Greatest Showman

    I really love the opening song. Can't get it out of my head.

    Wonder

    The world is cruel. A good eye opener for sure.

    Goodbye Christopher Robin

    I didn't realize he had such a lonely childhood. Definitely made me want to hug my kids more often.

    The Battle of the Sexes

    How was equality such a struggle? (And still is in many respects.)

    Dunkirk

    WWII movies aren't generally happy movies, but this movie really gives you a sense of hopelessness.

    The Foreigner

    I liked the story and I was interested to see how it developed. However, the main character gets in the way of the overall plot. It could have easily been a great movie had Jackie Chan's role been completely cut. You wouldn't even notice that he was gone and the conclusion would have been the same.

    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.
