I saw "I, Tonya" on Friday.  I'd give it an 8/10.  It was enjoyable.  The acting was very good and it brought back memories of when the events were really going on.  I was an avid fan of figure skating back then. 
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

I finished the second season of stranger things.  It was not as good as the first, but it was still goddamn good.  8/10.

Good to know! I plan on watching this myself once I've rewatched some of the episodes from Season 1.

As a side note (in case anyone might be interested) I also recently watched Dark on Netflix which is kind of similar to Stranger Things:

So far, I'm personally loving this! Can't wait to watch the next season once it's released!

Sounds interesting Lori. Thanks for the mention!

The Clapper   3/10         Amanda does her best to hold it up, but there is nothing there besides Amanda.

What We Do in The Shadows  6-7/10
This is a kiwi film made by the same person who did Thor Ragnarok. He's like Peter Jackson, who had some small films to his name, which people showed interest in after seeing LoTR.  Taika Waititi tends to be in all his movies, and stars in WWDITS. It's a mockumentary about a stupid vampire group in Wellington, who share the same flat. It's one of those movies where you wonder if you will last to the end, but you make it. When you get there, you think that was fuckn insane, but glad I watched it.

I loved this one.  Gemaine Clement is so talented.


Despicable me 3
7/10
Fun.  More or less the same as the others, with less focus on the little girls.
What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

Dunkirk
6/10
Meh.  Too much jumping around in time made it kind of co fusing and dull.  Not enough suspense.
Acting was good.

Didn’t long watch Vegas Vacation for the second time (I can barely remember anything about the time I first saw this).

I think there were some genuinely funny/enjoyable parts. And I didn’t find the acting bad. But at the same time, to me, there was something about the film that (to me) just seemed over rushed. Plus, I saw that there was a lack of any real effort to try to show audiences much of anything new when it came to the plot.

While I didn’t dislike the film (and enjoyed it in parts)  not really one I feel inclined to rewatch much in the future either.

Rating it 5.5/10.

Black Panther: 8/10

SPOILERS BELOW. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.






Some parts of the plot were predictable, like when what's-his-name loses the ritual fight (I mean, it's literally right next to a means by which your opponent is unlikely to survive and will remain inaccessible to those wanting confirmation) and the rest of the story that follows. I'd have given it a 7/10, but there is one thing that I really liked: it wasn't yet another "white man/America(n) saves the colored people/world" film, like so many before it (Avatar, Independence Day, and so on). The problem originates in Wakanda and is solved in Wakanda, by Wakandans. That trope avoidance alone makes this an 8/10 film instead of a 7/10, IMO.

Worth it to see all the White Supremacists come out and think of overly intellectual reasons why they hated it.

COCO -- 6/10 Cute animation, decent story.

Blade Runner -- no rating, I fell asleep. TWICE, and have no idea what this movie is about.
Maybe voting for someone just because he pretended to be pissed at the same people you’re pissed at wasn’t the best idea in the world.

I like the first one a lot. I think they should have just left it there but the second one wasn't too disappointing. Haven't seen the third one yet. I'm like...meh.

My three daughters absolutely love all three. Can't imagine why.

Thor: Ragnarok, was a hoot.   I very much enjoyed it, especially the interaction between Banner and Thor.

Valerian
6/10
Pretty movie with cool ideas and effects, but not much heart.  I know a lot of critics blamed the actors, but I’m not convinced it wasn’t the script. Still, worth watching on prime.

Girls trip
5/10
Sort of like a tame version of the Hangover with middle aged black women.  Cliche, over the top in places, but over all okay.

Padmaavat
3/10
Bollywood movie that freaked out conservative hindu idiots.  Story from an old Rajput folktale which many take as true, about a queen who set herself on fire rather than be taken captive by Mughal conquerors.  Beautiful costumes and setting.  Deepika Padukone was luminous.  It has 75% less singing and dancing than most Bollywood movies, which is still 100% too much for me.

Everything else was a catastrophe. 

Story was crap.  Not enough Deepika.  The pace was plodding.  The effects were second rate.  Movie was an hour too long. Lead Male characters were one dimensional.  Ranveer Singh is a shitty actor.  It glorified ritual suicide by fire (despite the disclaimer that said it didn’t) and by extension honor killing in general.  It praised Hindus and slandered muslims by showing the former as being honorable to a flaw and the latter as being completely without any principles.

Yes I liked that movie, well worth watching, I am prejudice for stuff like that. It did lack something that should have taken it to the next level.

Saw this Sunday evening:

https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0105046/

A well acted, interesting but pretty sad movie I thought. Imo John Malkovich was so strongly convincing (despite knowing who it was playing the part I still had a tough time believing it was him during the watch) as a generally harmless gentle vulnerable intellectually disabled person (who could occasionally show behaviour on the dangerous side under the right circumstances) I really found the ending pretty horrible - though very understandable.

Given how hard Gary Sinise’s character tries to protect him from bad things/tries to build a better future for them both (considering the hard times they have been living in) during the film I felt pretty bad for his character also.

One of those movies that I found pretty good/made a fairly strong impact - but one that didn’t exactly leave me feeling great (although I’m sure that it wasn’t supposed to and I had the idea that something bad was going to happen at some stage going by the Netflix movie description for this).

Rating it 7/10.
