    Blinded by the light 7/10. Very cheesy. I think you have to be a Bruce fan, which I am

    The Irish man 7/10 Solid not great but very watchable
    Simple Plan is a ****ing classic, love that movie

    Maybe it was my mood I love Billy Bob and Paxton but Paxton and his dumb wife were just so annoying. Also watched Insomnia with Pacino and Robin Williams this weekend 8/10. Pacino was really good.

    I liked it, but it felt a little longer than it needed to be. It's not on the same level as Casino or Goodfellas IMO.

    New "who done it" kinda flick by Rian Johnson of The Last Jedi/Looper/Brick fame about a wealthy author found dead the night of his birthday party attended by mainly his closest family. Lots of well known actors playing the family. I didn't have super high expectations as none of Johnson's work has particularly interested me but this was very well done and easily his best work. Interesting plot that keeps you guessing with a decent touch of humor.
    Saw this the other day. Definitely agree with this. I enjoyed it quite a bit. A fun experience. Maybe a little long but whatever.

    But I'd add, unsurprisingly, that I wasn't pleasantly surprised with the good politics of it. Even if it wasn't anything super profound or even subtle.

    8/10


    The Irishman - 8.5/10

    Like carter, it took me a while to get through it all. Maybe that's the Netflix experience, or me struggling to get into it, but yeah. It felt like a chore at first and I do think it felt "plodding" at times. Also, I think the leads were great but I don't think it was greatness that I hadn't seen before. It felt like De Niro. It felt like Pacino. It felt like Pesci. But that's not a bad thing.

    That's the nit-picky. Scorsese is just about the only man who could make all of that and this movie work as well as it does. I think it's length proved worthy. It was masterfully executed. I wasn't prepared for how sad it was and it ultimately hit home. I feel bad it took me a little to get hooked. I shouldn't have doubted it. It paid off in spades and is truly a top tier epic.

    "Masterpiece"? IDK. But it definitely feels like an accomplishment.

    I am actually surprised the politics of it was a negative for you. I thought the movie did a good job of parodying both liberal and conservative views, not really taking a stance either way... other than the fact that the protagonist is the daughter of an illegal immigrant, I guess that's taking a stance, but it didn't seem too heavy-handed.

    Agreed. Though I think ManRam may have made a typo and actually did appreciate the politics of it.

    Politics aside I just though it was a movie about somebody that was good at heart and people who have corrupted hearts. Essentially good vs evil, but that final scene makes you wonder.

    Didn't make me wonder. I thought it was just a funny callback, not a sign of any foul play.

    Definitely a fatal typo. My bad

    In regards to the simple things it had to say about inequality, the rich and immigration, it did it well. Cleared a low bar, but I appreciated it.

    Anyone see Queen & Slim yet? It's pretty damn good. Daniel Kaluuya is on a helluva run of great movies. Sicario, Get Out, Black Panther, Widows, Queen & Slim. Not to mention his Black Mirror episode!

    Saw it last night. It was great. A chase movie unlike any chase movie I've seen before. More unique than great, but it was good. Over Thanksgiving we had to decide between this and Knives Out. I think they were similarly enjoyable movies. This is an 8/10 too.

    Excited to see what Lena Waithe does next. And like you said, Kaluuya is definitely a star at this point.

    Kaluuya's next movie is going to be a biographical film called "Jesus Was My Homeboy". Alongside Lakeith Stanfield and Jesse Plemons. Produced by Ryan Coogler.

    He'll star as Fred Hampton!!!!

    Rate the Last Movie You've Seen XXV

    Goldfinch 7/10. This movie got terrible reviews but I liked it. It was too long but otherwise I really enjoyed it. I am a sucker for brooding intelligent teenagers that like too many adult things so
