The movie you just watched

Recommended Posts

I watched (the original) Point Break today.   Seen it a million times and still love it, but what I find really hilarious about that movie is at the end where Johnny Utah lets Bodie go to ride the wave in the 100 year storm.   Bodie tells Johnny he has been waiting his whole life for this.   Then precedes to only get up on the wave for about 10 feet before eating ass and drowning.   He was only up for like 2 seconds.

Incredibly entertaining comedy, now available on Netflix. Eddie Murphy knocked it out of the park on this one.

Eddie Murphy is back. Wesley Snipes stole some scenes,  but Wesley Snipes has been back, see What We Do in the Shadows. 

The similarities between the film and Bowfinger are remarkable. Credit to Murphy for going back to what works.

Black k Klansman

We liked it. I'd leave out the jump to the present time at the end, but I thought it was very solid in its consideration of prejudice with a focus on taking people as individuals. Great cast. Spike Lee's path as a filmmaker has been very interesting. I don't think he could have made such a good movie on this topic 20 years ago.

edit: I make it sound like a dissertation on film. It's actually quite entertaining from the wit of the characters and the tensions that build.

Just saw the Midway remake.  40% critic/90% viewer rating on rotten tomatoes.  Viewer rating is more accurate. If Pearl Harbor was a D, this is a solid B.  Extra points for historical accuracy.

The Conversation - 1974

So weird that this was done the same year they released Godfather Part 2.   This one feels slow, and dated as heck.  Hackman's slow burn is affective.  But slow.

I'm pretty much very much hit or miss on the Coppola catalogue  complete buy in on the big ones, and a big love for Rumblefish and the Outsiders, and the goofy Peggy Sue,   But a lot in there that I don't get. 

Anyway, in the film, this guy is smart:

In the Electric Mist - Tommy Lee Jones, John Goodman, Peter Sarsgaard, Mary Steenburgen. Set in Iberia Parish, La, Jones is a recovered alcoholic police detective chasing a serial killer and his own ghosts. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.

The book is much, much better.

“Yesterday” - Novel idea, pretty well executed.  Scene when he visits the beach house floored me.   

Didn't see this posted before my post, so let me just postface and say "no offense and just my opinion, but..."

Watched this last night. And yes, it was as bad as I remembered, although, a young Mimi Rogers was quite easy on the eyes.

Scrolling around Netflix and happened across “Step Brothers.” It’s still laugh out loud funny.

Just watched “All is True” about Shakespeare. It was a 15 hr flight and I was bored. This movie surprised me.

It was a totally forgettable movie.  The only thing I remember about the movie Gung Ho is the scene where the Americans and Japanese are standing around a model of Camaro and a wheel falls off.  I was in high school when this movie was released.  I remember that scene vividly because roughly a week after i saw this movie in the theater, the school day ended and everyone was hopping in their cars and leaving the school parking lot.  One of my good friends was a couple of cars in front of me in the line to leave the parking lot in his IROC Z.  He turned left out of the parking lot and in the middle of the turn, the front left wheel broke off the axle and rolled into field across the street.  It wasn't really funny, but I laughed my ass off while thinking about that ridiculous scene from the movie.

Just watched the series Generations War. 
Produced in Germany about 5 young German friends that go their separate ways in the early stages of WW2.  Think of the war spreading East into Russia.   Kind of a German Band of Brothers/The Pacific. Well produced stories with plenty of action.

But does he get a chance to sing?

Aparajito - 1956

The second in the trilogy.  Sure I nodded off, but still a pretty if depressing film

I personally think water straight from the Ganges is not good for fever, but that's just a personal preference.

I wouldn't say that. I'm sure there's a near 100% chance you get a fever if you drink it.

I watched Zoo the other night.  Based upon a true story about a young man (16?  18?  not sure his age) in Northern Ireland that steals a baby elephant from the local zoo (his father had worked there as a vet before being drafted) during WW2.  Authorities were slaughtering the zoo animals after Belfast had been hit by bombing raids to ensure they wouldn't get loose and harm people.

The movie held my interest in spite of it's flaws.  Couldn't understand the dialogue at times because of thick accents, but that was infrequent and it was always easy to figure out what I missed.

I'd say it's a good family movie, but one of the main characters, a really nice girl, ends up getting killed during a bombing raid (not graphically, but the emotional impact is felt), so if you watch it with your kids, be prepared to talk to them about mourning a loss.
