Crazy Rich Asians 6/10

 

Typical, predictable rom-com.  The flaunting of wealth was over-the-top sickening.

 

There was one really good scene (Rachel Chu telling off Eleanor Young at the end), but that's about it.

Anyone excited to see Shazam! in theater?

 

... yeah, me neither.

I am no longer worried about seeing End Game spoilers online. ;)

 

9/10

 

At 3 hours it was a bit long.  They could have cut half an hour off the end.

 

Anyway, it was a nice way to complete the story of 20+ films.  Tears were shed, I won't lie.

BTW, a month from now HBO releases Deadwood (2019) a movie based on the most excellent TV series.

 

Finally some closure for that story.  I'm really looking forward to that one.

Loved that series. Can't wait for it!  In the previews I saw a lot of the original characters but did not see Kim Dickens.

Scratch that...I just looked up the IMDb info and she's listed.  As you said @BoltBait, 'finally some closure'.

They'd better show that in the UK.

 

I binge watched the series back in Jan/ Feb and have never been so frustrated at the ending of a series.

 

Ian McShane - what an actor

LEGO Movie 2 - 0/10

 

The first one was OK. This one... not so much. It is basically the first one plus evil Duplo blocks. I want my money back. :( 

 

How to Train Your Dragon 3 - 7/10

 

Good, solid movie. Tears at the end, for sure.   Bad guy in the movie was subpar, to be honest. But that wasn’t the most important part of the movie anyway.

Toy Story 4 - 8/10 (all four of my kids rated it 10/10)

 

Good, solid movie. Very emotional.  It was nice to see Bo Peep become a strong character. Also nice to see them cover new ground of toys created by kids--funny stuff in there.

 

Stay for the credits, all the way until the end. ;) 

 

The Rest of My Review...

Spiderman Far From Home 8/10  (my kids rated it 9/10)

 

Cute love story. Bad guy was interesting and the scenes with him are intense.

 

Credit scenes were... um... interesting?  I can’t wait to see the fallout in the next movie!

 

EDIT:  ...and, it doesn’t look like there will be a “next movie” as Marvel and Sony can’t come to an agreement. Bummer.  Except for Spider-man: into the spider verse, this was the best Spider-man movie I’ve seen and I was really looking forward to the next installment.

Does anybody here remember (on ABC, from years ago) a series called "Life on Mars"? Had Harvey Kietel & Gretchen Mol among others. It was actually a pretty good series. Anyways, it was based on a BBC same-named series. I have been watching the british one, (16 episodes, I think). The BBC one is better than the ABC one, outrageously funny! Brits allow stuff NOT allowed here. If you can find it, well worth watching!

I like both!

The BBC one is better

 

You'd like the sequel then,   Ashes to Ashes ... Philip Glenister is just as good, if not better in it

 

Apologies, just realised it's not the TV thread

Getting back onto films. 

Everyone I know is excited for the sequel (which can't be a sequel for legal reasons) to Twin Town.  Which had the best ending to any film I've ever seen

 

Tin Town.

It was raining, so today was a day of guilty pleasures....

 

Corvette Summer

 

followed by

 

Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

 

followed by

 

FM

 

I think FM may have the best soundtrack of any movie ever. If you’ve never seen the movie, it’s like the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati.
