    I've watched it yesterday with @RockyRoadHux. It's a good movie, but not a masterpiece.

    Adam Driver's and Scarlett Johansson's acting was great. Also a shout out for Laura Dern's role in the movie.

    As @srg already mentioned, it's not really depressing.

    Ok, you've convinced me, I'll check it out tomorrow. Slowly, I will work my way through many more movies which have the ST cast in them

    I did that with Driver's filmography after he became my MVP in TFA. It turned out he has a great taste in choosing projects, because I've enjoyed majority of it and his acting is always a treat to watch. Totally my favourite actor now.

    Yeah he is great! Also, somehow I like that he stays off social media.

    As I work my way to finish up 2019's films....

    THE IRISHMAN - I can't grade this because I still don't know how I feel about it. Loved some of it. Hated some of it. Or at least, found it below standard.

    FORD V FERRARI - Loved this start to finish. Damon and Bale shine. Bernthal is always great, wildly underrated. Mangold is so good at these films. One of the best at them. A+

    THE LIGHTHOUSE - LOL. What a trip. Loved every minute of losing my sanity watching this. A+

    The rise of Skywalker.

    I don't think you've watched this movie, but if you interested in a good fantasy movie I recommend:

    I would give it a 9/10 because of plot development and (don't shoot me), the romance. I enjoyed this as soon as I thought of it as a seperate movie.

    Finally got round to watching Terminator: Dark Fate. It's not awful, but it's not great either. Like the Alien and Predator franchises it broadly shares it's era with, the first two remain top of the pile and each sequel diminishes it's origins. They really need to retire these series now - not try to reinvent or soft-remake (as Dark Fate is pretty much a retelling of the original movie's story - and dear lord have they not sussed in the future that Terminators are no match for late 20th/early 21st century heavy industry/manufacturing!). Unsolicited, Subjective Lazarus Score: 6/10


    Gonna have to drop the briliant Monty Python and the Holy Grail onto the watchlist for tonight now... RIP Terry Jones - thanks for all the laughs :(

    This is my problem with all those sequels for Terminator and Predator too. None of them are outright god awful messes. They're perfectly fine rainy Saturday movies to catch on TV when you can't do what you really wanted to do.

    There is very little innovation story wise. It plays mostly the same beats as the originals at best and at worst copies the sequels that failed on their own anyways...they're boring mindless drivel. They're blank slab movies that don't even do enough to be fully entertaining. To me, that makes them worse than a bad movie that took big risks and just failed.

    Take Book of Henry. It's not good. It has enjoyable moments and a really interesting concept: What if Home Alone wasn't a comedy and was serious about a child predator. All the pieces just didn't work out. And I had more fun watching that mess play out than a carbon copy of another Terminator movie.

    Or look at The Meg. Another movie "better" than Book of Henry but actually less enjoyable to watch because it's so bland and boring. It takes no risks and shies away from anything potentially interesting because it didn't want an R rating.

    I'd rather watch a trainwreck that tried to be different than xeroxed blockbusters.

    I watched the weirdly one-word-ified 'Ninokuni' movie, on Netflix. As a big fan of the games I eventually enjoyed it by the end, but it felt annoyingly close to being better than it ended up, if that makes sense. I loved the smatterings of familiar musical cues from the games but they felt a little forced/out of place at times and
    the two 'big' twists were utterly obvious to me unfortunately
    . That said, it had some nice ideas and cool designs in places. Worth a watch if you think you might like it, but it wasn't exactly Ghibli-level.

    Also on Netflix, I watched David Lynch's 'What Did Jack Do?', a short film about a murder suspect being interviewed at train station. But... um... the suspect in question is a monkey (of course he is). lol. I loved it.

    And today I saw TRoS for my 11th viewing :D I love it so much. It is now the Star Wars film I have seen the most times in a cinema.

    @RockyRoadHux and I recently watched 'Knives Out' and '1917'.

    KNIVES OUT
    Rian Johnson's flick was a fun take on a long lost genre, a 'whodunit'. IMO Rian made a good movie with a great cast. It was exciting to watch and I'm looking forward to the sequel.
    8/10

    1917
    Sam Mendes already showed that he can do faked One-Shots with the opening of 'Spectre' and he succeeds again with 1917. Yes, if you know how it's done, then you will notice the points of cutting, but it's still very well done. The movie's highlight are definitely the visuals.
    7/10

    COLOR OUT OF SPACE:

    Richard Stanley's triumphant return to movies. 24 years away from the work in director's jail after Brando and Kilmer all but sabotaged him on the set of ISLAND OF DOCTOR MOREAU in 1996. He comes back with another adaptation, this time HP Lovecraft's classic Color Out of Space.

    It's a trip and a half. The performances are all pitch perfect for this sort of film. Nic Cage never goes "full Cage" keeping it ranging from Matchstick Men to Big Daddy on the crazy scale. Joely Richardson is delightful as always. Madeline Arthur and Brendan Meyer fit perfectly in as two of Cage's and Richardson's children. Elliot Knight is a great foil to literally everyone else as the movie's straight man. Tommy Chong is perfectly worked in as a squatter in a small role.

    It's not straight up "B" Horror, but it clearly has a love for the genre. It utilizes practical effects and body horror in a tribute to John Carpenter's THE THING (which itself was a Lovecraft tribute of sorts). Phantasmagoria coats this film from start to finish. It berates your senses to disorient you and put you in it. It keeps you at arms length so you can't get comfortable once things start. It's a brisk 2 hours with very little wasted time.

    This isn't for everyone, fairly violent and there's a scene milking an animal so I'm sure there are those who will be upset at that. If you love Lovecraft and appreciate the psychedelia of things like Mandy and classic Argento films, then this is for you.

    9/10

    Thanks to the big discounting on Mega Movie Week here in the UK, I’ve bought several digital titles for our library this week and had a chance to re-enjoy How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Into the Spider-verse and Labyrinth with my daughters, all in glorious 4K, for the equivalent cost of 2 bags of Doritos per film :cool:

    Yeah, there's some very good deals on that right now, even though I'm more a physical media kinda guy most of the time. I love the three titles you picked. I'll give a shout out for The Man Who Killed Hitler and then the Bigfoot, Power Rangers, Mortal Engines, Blade Runner 2049 and Apollo 11 all at 2.99 on iTunes 4K... nice.

    Last night I watched, on my gf's insistence, The Meg... Yeah... It is dumb as a bag of turnips, but it if you want dumb action you can surely do much worse than The Meg. Not quite for me, but I didn't hate it either, and sharks are cool :) Surprisingly decent acting and some of the characters were not complete stereotypes; plus for a big budget.

    My gf's only complaint was the unrealistic numbers of different species of sharks that flocked to the feeding sites and such whenever the CGI people needed to populate the image with sharks :rolleyes: Yeah... she's majorly into animals, monsters, dumb action, and horror films :cool:

    Didn't think I would enjoy this one that much! Really looking forward to the sequel!
