"Show Me Your War Face"

Sequel to Fool Myrtle Jerkit. Only 44 seconds long, but it's perfect. 10/10

"Free Solo"(2018).
The Oscar-winning documentary of Alex Hannold, the first and only person to free solo El Capitan.
Fascinating insight into what makes him tick, stunning scenery, and visuals that send shivers up your spine.
10/10
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7775622/

It just recently became available for streaming rental on iTunes/Amazon/Youtube/GooglePlay.

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels -- 7/10

Yeah, after years of seeing it in bits and pieces I finally watched it all the way through. Good, in a sorta Snatch-lite or Snatch: Prequel way. Guy Ritchie used the same tropes, character types, dialog and style, but perfected it with Snatch. In his first movie it was easy to see why Jason Statham became a popular action movie actor. He had a good grasp of the snappy, low key ironic patter that characterizes much of Ritchie's style. While I've enjoyed re-watching Snatch many times I'm not sure LS&2SB is something I'd go out of my way to watch again.

Speed - 5/10 I forgot how utterly preposterous that movie was. Sandra Bullock was at maximum cute, tho.

Isn't It Romantic

Rom-com that takes meta pokes at rom-coms. Pretty generic, but there are a few well-written zingers here and there. Resting-murder-face got a lol. 6/10

Can you give an example of one of them?

I just watched a couple of trailers and clips. That was an interesting short trip down the rabbit hole. The movie looks good enough. The most interesting bit was the comments. Been awhile since I've seen so much obvious social media astroturfing, mostly for Priyanka Chopra.

I'll watch it, eventually. Seems to have borrowed a bit from Groundhog Day, the one romcom most guys will admit to liking.

"Mission: Impossible - Fallout"

This is your typical action/drama movie with lots of car chases and some expected but well choreographed fight scenes. Marginally acceptable acting with a predictable (disarm the nukes before they explode, that's new?) plot. It comes replete with JJ Abrams (producer) overused lens flares. However, to his credit, there is some great cinematography with breathtaking views. I got it on sale.

Returner

I don't typically chose to watch foreign film outside of the classics. But of all of those that I've seen this is probably the most entertaining. Its basically an ET phone home cross between Independence Day and Terminator.

Although the story is somewhat predictable (only because I've seen them all), the characters are well portrayed and likable enough to ignore the minor continuity glitches and plot holes. You could call it an action, sci-fi, adventure movie, but science of the sci-fi is unexplained, so I'd prefer to go with fantasy instead.

The subtitles are laid out perfectly and are simple yet descriptive enough as to explain the dialogue without being distracting. I'd call it a great Made in Japan American movie or a great American movie made in Japan. Either way, its well done, and worth the price of admission.

Returner (2002)

Saw The Favourite last night as we rode out the bomb cyclone blizzard. 5/10. Didn't care for it partly because I had read that it was a comedy with slapstick, etc.. It had a few comedic elements but I would not call it a comedy by a long shot. Odd movie.

🦖 Planet Raptor

Just plan terrible. The poor special effects and silly dialogue made this one bad from every angle. But if the attempt was to be campy, this movie failed that too. The worst part is, it didn't have to be as bad as it was.

Regardless of the fake CGi, which could have been ignored, it was the story and ridiculous characters lines that made this movie so very bad. It was if all the characters (who were scientist and soldiers) were bumbling idiots that purposely put themselves in positions to be eaten by dinosaurs.

Terrible acting with crony lines and a ridiculous plot makes this one of the worst sci-fi movies ever made. It was literally painful to sit through.

1/5 Amazon
3/10 Otherwise

I just watched it last night. I'd say the Mission Impossible series with Tom Cruise has essentially matched the James Bond flicks as reliable action with no dull moments. What is really astonishing is that Tom Cruise (who turns 57 this year) does his own stunts. You even get to watch him break his ankle in the leap from one building to another. Read the IMDB trivia on the film for details:

Finally got to watch Bubba Ho-Tep. Mostly a sad rumination on getting old (along with a killer mummy). Maybe a little slower than I was expecting, but it has Bruce Campbell so it's already good in my book. I'd give it 7/10, but probably would like to watch it again without the distraction of the family around.
