Watched streaming on iTunes last night. Consider this the female version of Death Wish. Garner has done action before in movies like Daredevil and Elektra so she has experience with physicality. Nothing really new here but I find it gratifying to watch a woman kick butt. Was generally panned by critics.
More and more women are kicking butt these days. Wonder when Meryl will get in the act?

Triangle - It was ok. Mildly entertaining with a little twist at the end. I wouldn't watch it again. I'm always on the hunt for good psychological horror type movies. This one came up on some lists over Halloween and I'd filed it away. I streamed it last night when I saw it pop up. I'm glad I didn't buy it.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) - Stephen Norrington directs. Sean Connery stars.



Watched last night streaming on iTunes. Looked and sounded great. Was in the mood for a little Sean Connery, it would be his last film role.

The idea was good, assemble a league of heroes, legends and monsters to fight for good. Starts out promising enough then turns into an over-bloated CGI fest with a confused storyline. At best it's a popcorn movie for a rainy day.

No, this movie is way better than that, I've owned it on blu ray since 2010. Among fantasy film lovers this movie has a following, there was hope that a second one would be made. But it never came together

I did like that they conceived Captain Nemo correctly as an Indian Prince. But then they lost me when the Nautilus appeared and it was twice the length of the Queen Mary which didn't stop them from steering the ship up the narrow Venice canals. According to the graphic novel version of Extraordinary Gentlemen this Nautilus is a much bigger and newer version of the original. The rest of the characters in the film were closer to the familiar.

It's a fun popcorn flick but it had the bones to be so much better.

Bumblebee (2018) - Travis Knight directs. Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker and Pamela Adlon.



Watched last night streaming on Google Play. Probably my favorite installment so far. Funny with a surprising emotional tug. Scenes between Steinfeld and Bumblebee had kind of an E.T. feel. Steinfeld's performance makes this film. The movie is set in 1987 so you get a healthy dose of 80's music. If you're a fan of the franchise you'll like this. Grossed over $459 million worldwide.

Definitely the weakest of the three, but still worth a view.

The last movie I watched was Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971), on VHS. My fiancee has lots of old movies, mostly Disney and Buena Vista titles, on VHS, and her daughter's friend had never seen this movie ... until last night. However, I think now I should have stuck it out for Netflix to send it to me on Blu-ray; the VHS image was jumpy, one of the artifacts from it being a frequently-viewed tape, and it might have been better if viewed in the original aspect ratio.



Just before that, we watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) on DVD, part of the MGM Classic Musicals collection, and it included the whole opening title sequence showing the many victories of the car and the crash and burn (yes, as in fire destroying the engine and burning off the paint from the hood) when the driver avoided hitting a little girl and dog in the street, something my fiancee told me didn't appear on her VHS copy. (My speculation was that the long opening title sequence probably had to be compressed down to fit the 2 hour 24 min movie on a typical 2-hour VHS cassette.) Some scenes did come out nicely and I was able to point out how the 2.39:1 aspect ratio we were watching showed the whole town square where Professor Potts (Dick Van Dyke) and family landed when they came to rescue his father. (I have become an "Original Aspect Ratio" fan; some movies are just best viewed in their OAR, now that we have TVs that can do that justice, instead of those 21-in TVs we had when I was a kid.)



And in the afternoon, before these two movies, she watched and I slept through My Favorite Martian: The Movie (1999) on DVD (rented from Netflix). (I was tired! I am not returning it until I have a chance to actually watch it.)



All three titles are family friendly.

I've definitely seen worse, and I did watch it all to see how it ended, but wished I had my two hours back afterwards
I watched the beginning of this and was feeling the same. It was late so I shelved it for another night. No chemistry is an understatement. It's like they all hate each other, but without knowing any history, it makes little sense.

I had mixed feelings about this film when I first saw it in the theater but have liked it better each time I've watched it since. Plus I get my Gal Gadot fix.

"The Party" which is a small but very nice film, it's quite funny and twisty. It manages to be fairly philosophical while staying very light at the same time.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5814592/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

It's about a woman (Kristen Scott Thomas) who has just been elected to a high office so she throws a party with some friends to celebrate. But her husband chooses that point to make some announcements that make the whole thing go off the rails in a bad way. I loved how the beginning and end worked together. It's filmed in black and white which works well for the content I think.

The fact that the IMDB comments are full of people saying it's boring and pretentious of course proves it's good.

I forgot the other rule too. Rule 523- You may not fight/attempt to fight any character from another comic universe/Failure to follow this rule will lead to the implosion of both universes.

Did some traveling this week so I watched a few on the iPad.

What Doesn’t Kill you. I’d never seen this movie and honestly never heard of it. Its not a bad movie. I’ll watch it again.

True Confessions - Hard to go wrong with these two guys on the screen. It’d been a while since I saw it and wasn’t disappointed in another viewing.

Let Me In - I had actually seen this before but had forgotten about it. I realized it once I was committed. Decent movie and was worth a second watch.

Have started and stopped The Unsaid a couple times and just can’t get into it. Probably should just give up on this one lol

Hadn't seen this in quite some time and ran into it again on Amazon Prime streaming. Entertaining enough, runs on a little too long. With the long build-up the ending seemed abrupt. Mixed reception from critics.

Camp X-Ray (2014) Netflix
The independent film is excellent. A a pair of impressive performances from Kristen Stewart and Peyman Moaadi.

Kristen Stewart plays guard Amy Cole, a young marine from a small town who joined the military to escape her life. The movie centers around the conflict of her growing relationship with a prisoner, Moaadi, who has been in Gitmo for eight years.

This film affected me very deeply in a way I was not expecting.

Kristen Stewart and Peyman Moaadi deliver stunning performances which take your breathe away. You really feel for this guy and Stewart has never been more convincing. I thought it would be a stretch to imagine her as a tough soldier and it is kind of surreal yet she manages to create a credible person out of the role. Her emotional distress as the contradictions of her job as camp guard begin to overwhelm her, is very powerful and a pleasure to watch.

The independent film is excellent. It is well written and engaging, as well as caries a great story, tone, and pace with it. A a pair of impressive performances from Kristen Stewart and Peyman Moaadi.

The fact that the IMDB comments are full of people saying it's boring and pretentious of course proves it's good.
There are ways to go off the rails in a good way ? Damn, I've been going to the wrong parties
