Disagree. I thought Zootopia was better.

Harriet

I think Cynthia Erivo is terrific. I liked her in The Outsider as well. I was glad to learn a little about Harriet Tubman. I'll likely look for a well-regarded biography.

The move was a drag. It was episodic and there were no well established relationships between any of the characters. It posited that she cares about her husband and family, but not dramatized so that I feel much beyond the generic. They tried to set up an antipathetic relationship with her former owner and childhood companion, but that was pretty two dimensional despite the best efforts of the actors.

There are so many opportunities with this story to make something brilliant and classic. The filmmakers fail to do that.  Waste of a great cast and film crew.

Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation openingvcredits rolling now.  NatLamp's Vacation without the sizzling humor but still a good watch.  Jummy Schtewart at his best.

I love that movie. I'm still happy to revisit every five or so years and still laugh. Spatterbox.

Me too.  I suspect that people who disliked Zootopia didn't like its political message.

There is a political message? I just thought it was awesome.

Gun to my head, this is my favorite Western. John Wayne’s best performance, and Kim Darby is perfect as Mattie. 
 

Glen Campbell is also great. And it kicked off Robert Duvall’s career as a cowboy/consigliere. 

I sometime forget to put it on my top lists.  I think it's because Wayne was doing some actual acting. 

 

Shout out to Olivia de Havilland. I just can't imagine having one epic role, and all your cast mates died 40 years ago.   Really liked her with Errol Flynn.

A Bad Day at Black Rock

 

I love a good stranger coming out of nowhere and fucking shit up movie.

The  correct title is "How Bout That Bad Day at Black Rock".

I just watched Extraction with Bruce Willis.  Who the fuck did he owe money to in order to be coerced into making that steaming pile of shit.

You might want to looks at his IMDB for the last 7 years, Extraction was probably a high point.

saw that as well, what a pile of shit.   Fortunately "The End of the Tour" was the next show I picked.

Watched Harriet based of your rec.  Great watch.  2 hours probably doesn't do it justice.  A limited series would have been great.

“So are you the brains of this operation?”
“Tell you the truth, I don’t think this a brains-type operation”

Greatest opening scene of any movie ever.

Watched The Usual Suspects with my 15 year old. Had to make sure she was paying attention a few times during the movie but she was blown away at the end. I knew she liked it because it was obvious she was thinking about it overnight and when I saw her the next morning she said: “the only thing I don’t get is why Keyser Soze wasted so much time and energy to kill the witness when now the feds know what he looks like”.

The last time I looked at the DVD discount bin at Walmart he was in a dead heat with Nicholas Cage. Also there was a creepy guy nearby who couldn’t quit repeating something about Thandie Newton. We all had face masks on but it sounded like he said something about smoke

Throne of Blood (1957)

Screeching samurai/No play take on Macbeth.  Two speeds:  1) Stew and frown and 2) Run all around like a Kurosawa samurai.

Stewing:

A Bridge Too Far should have been better with that cast. It’s available on Hulu. Amazing list of stars: 
Robert Redford 
Michael Caine
Anthony Hopkins 
Sean Connery 
Gene Hackman 
James Caan
Laurence Olivier

Caine and hackman in the same movie! This is my thesis man! This is my closing argument! I can stop watching tv!

I had to look it up, but nice PCU reference. Is it streaming anywhere?

Saw The Hot Rock yesterday - nice way to spend a couple of hours laying low on a Saturday.

1972 "heist a big African diamond from a museum" film, Redford-Segal-Mostel and fine supporting cast, well-paced.  Manhattan is a major costar, including a fly-by of the Twin Towers, one of which was still under construction. Long- legged. long-haired, tight ribbed sweater wearing, nicely nubile young hippie dish Topo Swope played Segal's wife.

(Can't make url get real - here 'tis - worth looking)

Wimbledon. Normally what’s classified as a “romantic comedy” wouldn’t be my cup of Earl Grey but Kirsten Dunst makes my tennis shorts feel funny

The Call of the Wild

Went in with low expectations.  Actually enjoyed it.  Kids loved it, so I will chalk it up as a win. Nothing great, but better than expected.

The Wrong Missy. I haven't laughed as hard and as much in the first 5-6 minutes of a movie since I was a teenager. It's non-stop HappyMadison formulaic B-level stuff, but the lead Lauren Lapkus is hilarious and David Spade did his professional straight man to perfection. I am looking forward to more comedy of hers in the future, she killed it.

If you are a horror fan, watch Host on Shudder, You will thank me. Unfriended but on Zoom, and I enjoyed it a lot more.

Just watched a couple of oldies.


"Kung Fu Panda" is fucking terrific.   It's a really great movie, cartoon or not.


Switched over to "Dunkirk".    Still a steaming pile of shit.   Horrible in every single way.

Dunkirk was the anti- epic epic. That movie sucked ass.

Brawl in Cell Block 99.  Once again, it was so long ago since I put on my Netflix queue, that I forgot details about why and what.  First half of the movie fleshes out the protagonist's character and backstory.  Second half goes ludicrous speed on violent head smashing.  The movie had good pacing and mostly believable characters (many were one dimensional stereotypes more or less, but it didn't matter or detract from enjoyment).

It stars Vince Vaughn and this might be the finest acting job I've seen from him.  He didn't play his normal schtick in this movie.  He actually did some acting. 

I'd recommend it if you enjoy action movies where lots of people get their heads crushed.
