I saw Get the Gringo last night. Far fetched, fully implausible, but damn good entertainment. For me anyway.

However, there are a lot of non-subtitled Spanish language scenes, which sure made me wish I'd kept up with my Spanish.

Still, an 8 out of 10.

Saw Genius last night on the Roku.

Big budget, A-list actors, perhaps more appreciated by literary types. Still entertaining enough that this non-literary type gives it 6.5 out of 10 stars.

I understand that they had(have) considerable financial backing. He grew up on a farm so he had a working knowledge of animal husbandry to begin with. It is amazing what they did with virtually unusable land, tho.

Underground 6 on Netflix.

This movie started off straight into action, very much along the style of Baby Driver, if even a little MORE over the top. Then, you find as the movie drags on that starting at such a climax is destined to slowly fade off to a level of confusion and loss of way. By the end I wasn't even sure I was watching the same movie any more. If I rated it from the first 10 minutes I would say 20 out of 10. It simply couldn't keep it up. It needed the movie script equivalent of Viagra. Lots of funny moments. You could tell they took clues from Ryan's recent 'super hero' movie play book for that part, but talk about lost it's way. This movie will be on a milk carton near you soon.
Overall 4/10, being generous. Oh, and it appears there will be more....

Watched Wonder Woman because I like the 21st century theme song.

If you like a high budget CGI super hero movie, it's pretty entertaining. I can't give it a fair rating as I'm not the target audience.

I am not interested in watching more adventures as they hunt down the remaining 8 names. The first 10 minutes was too choppy for me, and the logic holes from then out were too big. I kept watching through the end, but it got a rare complete watch thumbs down for me.
On the topic of big budget Netflix sequels, I think I might be the only one, but I'd be interested in seeing the sequel of Bright that was proposed but will probably never be made.

Dark comedy. Absurd premise but kinda interesting at the same time. Cool characters. Well done.

Watched The Rise of Skywalker yesterday. It was ok. There were some definite good bits, but at least an equal number of giant plot holes, logical inconsistencies and points that got blurred over because it felt like the director was pissed that he only got to make 2 of the 3 films so he wanted to throw 2 films worth of plot into this one. Slowing down and letting things breathe would have helped a lot.

Murder Mystery Netflix comedy with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, that is amusing enough and got some chuckles. 6/10

Watched Murder on the Orient Express and Dunkirk last night.

For the first film, I thought Branagh's and Ridley's performances were very good while the remaining cast were simply caricatures. True, Poirot's moustache was a caricature and early distraction, but he made up for it with acting. Perhaps a cast of caricatures is the point of the movie? I guess 7.5 out of 10 stars.

For the second film, I found it very interesting watching the two soldiers doing everything they can to get to England.

Thomas Hardy's Spitfire was a magical beast. It never ran out of ammo, was the most fuel miserly fighter aircraft known to man, when out of fuel, had a 1000 to 1 glide ratio, and when set on fire to evade capture, it was revealed to have no engine at all. I suppose it was powered by angels.

Anyway, I'll give Dunkirk 8 out of 10 stars.

Avengers Endgame

Yup, I waited till it was cheap and I could pause. Glad I did. I expected well more out of this movie. Start it right off with a character that I had no idea who she was, and they never bother to tell us. Superwoman? Flash Girl? Fire Woman....I have no idea. I suppose it's the price you pay for not being on their jock with every movie and show release under the franchise. At points the time line was so confuddled that I had no idea at all what was going on. Day was saved by one of the half rate franchise players. Whee for Ant Man! I felt like I should have watched the "war" (1st part) just prior to watching this one so that I was completely on board, if such were possible. It was, at least, passable, and I did watch the whole thing. Super glad I only paid $4 for it as I would have wanted my money back otherwise. I'll go 5/10 being generous.

In truth, some of the best movies I have seen as of late have been along the lines of the Netflix productions. Several of those movies have more than surprised me with production value, story line, entertainment and encompassing viewability.

I still would have liked it better had they followed the suggestions and had Ant Man win the war by shrinking, crawling up the Thanos's but and then growing to giant sized and exploding him from the inside. Could have flown down his throat and accomplished the same thing too, I suppose.

Sat in a cheap hotel last night before a work assignment today. Watched Thor: Ragnarok.

A comedy masquerading as a super hero movie. Made me laugh out loud more than a few times.

7 out of 10 stars.

a solid 9. moved to mistiness more than once as a former angeleno whether it was the attention to detail or subject matter or manson family overtures.
that whole episode (unfortunately) dragged the 60's into the 70's in not only la but nationwide. the loss of innocence is/was part of the optimism/cynicism transfer.
love how pitt and decaprio could have swapped roles and either woulda worked. ultimately, pitt's better in the stuntman role.

Doomed: Annihilation

1/10

Can any movie even get this bad? Yes, and Doomed: Annihilation is. It goes from being ridiculously predictable to just plain ridiculous. Space monsters appear out of thin air, kill people, then vanish. The End.

I kid you not, it was that bad. If you ever have a choice between watching DA and paint dry, take the drying paint. You can thank me later.
