• 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:

    Tomb Raider

    I haven't played the video games, but I'm sure this movie is further removed from the original films. However, I enjoyed the better proportioned main character and gritty story grounded in reality.

    Blockers

    I'm either getting over this genre of movie or this was poor casting of the ensemble and terrible execution. Leslie Mann was the only reason I watched the whole thing.

    Gringo

    A silly movie made up of tons of sub-plots that make if fun to watch.

    Red Sparrow

    Great movie. A lot going on.

    Annihilation

    I was on board during the movie until it got weird. If you saw the movie, you know what I mean.

    Game Night

    Stupid as expected, but enjoyable. Not used to seeing Rachel McAdams playing a ditzy character and I found it doesn't suit her well.

    12 Strong

    It takes a special kind of human being to take on that kind of mission without any second thought.

    Death Wish

    Great action and really graphic.

    The Post

    All star cast puts on a good performance, but the story is pretty dry.

    Maze Runner The Death Cure

    Entertaining but couldn't really remember the second part of the trilogy.

    The Vanishing of Sidney Hall

    There was more to this story than I thought there would be.

    Christopher Robin

    Cute. How much of that was a true story?

    Den of Thieves

    A little long, but decent story that borrow from other heist films.

    Molly's Game

    She could make a fortune teaching networking skills.

    Radius

    Really unique premise and well executed.

    The Commuter

    A little predictable, but good fun.

    The Disaster Artist

    I admire how he wanted to blaze his own trail.

    The Room

    Wow. I couldn't imagine the level of terrible that this movie is. It was painful to watchful the whole way through.

    Hidden Figures

    Great movie. Always difficult to watch how human have been poorly treated in very ordinary situations.

    A Christmas Story

    Finally saw this movie. Was pretty much as expected. I can see the timeless appeal.

    The Incredibles 2

    Some great moments and a great story. I might be thinking it's better than the original.

    Smallfoot

    It's an interesting perspective when the shoe is on the other foot. Bad pun?

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    Because you have to watch Star Wars movies more than once.

    The Shape of Water

    Not as artsy as I thought it would be. Good pace and the story was great.

    Downsizing

    I thought it would be more of a comedy, but it took a turn and became something with more depth. Interesting premise.
