Watched The Quake.
I rather enjoyed the previous iteration The Wave very much and was looking forward to the follow-up.
Not quite as engaging as The Wave but still an overall fun, bass filled action fest.
Basically instead of a tsunami it's the same thing but with an earthquake lol
I finally finished The Unsaid - the last 15 minutes or so were actually pretty good. The problem was getting there. So slow.
Midnight Cowboy - Critically acclaimed, multiple awards. I was struck by the work of Dustin Hoffman and John Voight. Both of them were terrific. Admittedly I knew nothing about the plot going into it and didn't love the storyline. Good movie - not one that I would line up to watch again, though.
Out of Sight - 1998 - I actually really enjoyed this movie. Fun movie.
Perhaps it says a little about my movie tastes recently that I liked Out of Sight more than Midnight Cowboy. That said, the acting in Midnight Cowboy was far and away the best of the three.
For genre-lovers, this tense and emotional drama is definitely worth a look.
Left without men in the dying days of the American Civil War, three women must fight to defend their home and themselves from two rogue soldiers who have broken off from the fast-approaching Union Army.
Stars: Brit Marling, Hailee Steinfeld,Muna Otaru . Dark, brooding and brutal, "The Keeping Room" features finely carved performances in a Civil War period piece that might as well be post-apocalyptic.
Man of Steel (2013) - Zack Snyder directs. Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer and Russell Crowe.
Watched the Blu-ray last night. Looked and sounded great. The only thing I dislike about this film are the prolonged battle sequences in the third act. As an origin story I thought worked great with Crowe as Jor-El and Zurer as the mother. Cavill does not have the same charisma as Christopher Reeve but I've come to accept him as the current Superman.
Above the Law (1988) - Andrew Davis directs. Steven Seagal, Pam Grier, Sharon Stone and Henry Silva.
Watched the Blu-ray last night, film is a late 80's time capsule. First saw this movie when it was released and I was in Chicago at the time where it was filmed. It was entertaining for its time but now many of the action scenes seem dated, more funny than exciting. Sharon Stone's second movie role after Police Academy 4. Seagal will never be this thin again.
