Costner is great in Yellowstone.


First season I was convinced the show was drama for dumb people, but I've really enjoyed seasons 2-4.  Finale tonight should be awesome.

Spiderman: No Way Home

Enjoyed this film when I saw it a couple weeks ago, but it's not worthy of the hype IMO.  Worth the ticket price, but Marvel needs to course correct for the MCU and this didn't help. 

The Last Duel:

I was very excited for this, but ultimately was disappointed. The movie is essentially told from 3 different POVs, but they all agree on the primary issue in the film's resolution, do didn't see the point to 3 different versions.

The Power of The Dog:
This movie went way above my head and I have no idea what the plot of the movie was.  Bendict Cumberatch was a closeted homosexual?

I like slow burners...if done properly. This wasn't.

It was slow as molasses and it became obvious in the last 30 minutes  they didn't know how to wrap this story up.

Im sick of Hollywood's issues with endings.

The slow burn never really ignites. It tries to give an intense climax but it falls apart and instead of a proper resolution, it leaves it open... defeating the purpose of what we just watched.

Should've just gave a twist that Denzel is the actual killer. There were several clues hinting at this but they wouldn't go full throttle with the possibility.

Just started watching Manifest on Netflix. Quite an interesting premise - a plane full of people disappears for 5 years, and returns with the passengers having not aged a day, as it appears to them as only being a few hours up in the sky. And they are trying to work out what happened. I’m three episodes in, and it’s pretty good so far.

Yeah, it sucked. It could have been interesting had Leto lured him out into that desert field and he fell through an old mine shaft and was never found. It was a complete waste of a good villain.

Been watching lots of crap. So called classic movies.

Maltese Falcon. Saw this years ago and thought it was pretty good for a stone age movie. Now I realize it is actually crap. Some good performances from Bogie and the fat man but the plot is ridiculous and the ending just bad. Golden age of Hollywood my ass.

Dial M For Murder. This one's still pretty good.

Frenzy. Good contrast. Nothing really wrong with the movie, plot is good quality Hitchcock. It just looks bad in that 70s style. Realism doesn't work for Hitchcock.

MASH. Does have some moments, a great cast, but Palme d'Or?

Nashville. Another one. Some people call this movie the greatest of all time and quite frankly I find such a notion absurd. It does have one very good scene with "the song" but other than that it is crap.

Fanny & Alexander. Saw it maybe ten years ago and got nothing out of it. Now with more age I have started to appreciate it a little bit. Mostly the talent of the director which is far superior to anything ever made in my country. Cultural primitives. It's still crap though. Bergman should have written books instead.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Pure garbage. I couldn't finish it. Turned it off about 30 minutes in. I shouldn't have bothered...the last one sucked too.

This franchise and the others it spawned need to die off.

Yeah I thought something like that was going to happen...the detective's incompetence getting himself killed...and they did a good job building a bit of tension with Denzel trying to find exactly where they are out there.

The shovel to the head was the dumbest thing possible to happen at that moment.


Golden age of Hollywood my ass.

Yeah that period is definitely overrated.

1970s is the real golden age.

A name forgotten on that list: Peter Bogdanovich. He passed away yesterday. I just started watching Paper Moon again and I'd forgotten how awesome it is. Last Picture Show is one of the greatest films ever made. Mask was another great film. I need to watch Saint Jack. Nickelodeon was a dumb film but I remember liking it as a kid. Bogdanovich had a weird career, and he just couldn't get out of the way of his own ego. His Tom Petty documentary was fantastic.

Sidney Poitier just passed. The Defiant Ones was a great film, even with the awful Tony Curtis. In The Heat of the Night was flawless.
