Thread: Latest movie my wife picked up at the library

    Lego Batman. Good. Not as good as the Lego Movie (one of the best films of the past 5 years), but good. Maybe the 4th best Batman movie ever after the Michael Keaton and the first two Christian Bale's.

    Should have had the ordinary citizens of Gotham kick over the Daleks with ease. Worst super villain in the phantom zone, followed closely by that poser Voldemort.

    Kong: Skull Island. Spoiler alert: Sam Jackson gets to say "Hold on to Your Butts" again. Good movie.

    Ghost in the Shell: Why go through all the effort of giving that guy tactical eye implants if he doesn't use them at all? Not very good.

    I'll put this here since I actually did get this movie from the library for once: Mad Max Fury Road. I watched the first half of it in my way-too-hot upstairs bedroom with the AC blasting so that it was hard to make out a lot of the dialogue (I couldn't turn it up too loud because there were lots of loud explosions and stuff and all the kids were sleeping down the hall). I missed a lot of the dialogue and never really understood the plot but I'm not sure this really mattered much. It's a movie built on fast action and a flame throwing guitar. Though I had no idea what was happening I still enjoyed it.

    You mostly missed Max grunting or saying one word.

    Catch-up:

    Lost City of Z. This is not a must see film, but it's fine.

    Guardians 2. Such a huge drop off from the first one, but it still had its moments. Humor, action, and color.

    The Circle. Complete waste of time.

    Wonder Woman. They made the movie they should have made for Superman. See, DC, how nice it is to not have a brooding, moody superhero? Someone who is just good? I think DC has just one CGI background for the final action scene in every movie. It's black with fire all over. They used it in Superman, Batman vs Superman, and Wonder Woman. Since I streamed the Utah game last week, I saw the ad for Justice League about 100 times. Same background there too. Everything is dark and burny. Marvel has figured out that color is good. DC is still working on it

    Logan Lucky. Fun heist film. Intentionally funny sometimes. Unintentionally funny listening to the fake west virginia accents.

    Valerian and the city of 1,000 planets. This movie was just as bad as it appeared to be going in.

    Random question for the group here: When you are in the process of viewing a movie, either at home or at the theater, and it just sucks, do you ever turn it off? I dont know why, but almost always I feel obligated to power through just to see how something ends.

    If only I was as diligent about "starting what I finish" when it comes to eating right and exercising......

    I'm a little too ADD to stick with a movie that I find boring or uninteresting. Sometimes I might miss out on a payoff at the end, but there is so much content out there that I'll never see, I figure there is always something I can find that is a better use of my time.
    I saw a door that said exit only. So I entered through it and went up to the guy working there and said "I have good news. You have severely underestimated that door over there. By like a hundred percent." Demetri Marti

    I'm pretty much the same way. Books and movies - I finish them for completeness. The last movie I turned off midway was the Big Fat Greek Wedding sequel. Sooo bad.

    Do you only have one TV?

    Did you sign a prenup requiring you to watch terrible movies with her?

    Yes, and no. After the kids go to bed, we either read, work, watch sports, or watch a movie. We made it 20 minutes, and we couldn't take any more.

    Ragnarok. Great, memorable action and humor.

    They really should re-name the Oscar category to "best dramatic picture" because the actual best movies each year are either action films or comedies or both.
