Alita: Battle Angel. It was okay.
Thor: Love and Thunder
Been watching mystery movies on Hallmark channel.
Striking Distance with Bryce Willis. It's free on YouTube.
Also watched an old classic, "The Neverending Story".
For fans of this classic, here's Alan Oppenheimer, explaining how he wound up playing half the parts in the movie...
Finally watched Knives Out last night. I came across a spoiler a while ago as to who the killer is, so part of me was a bit "what's the point then".
... that red herring is build up so well, from the start, I was like "How on Earth will it turn out to have been Chris Evans, when we already saw that it was Ana de Armas?!"
Yeah, hype totally justified, great story, brilliantly told, and a fantastic cast, down to finally realizing that Great Nana was played by Lois & Clark's K Callan.
Now I'm really looking forward to the next Benoit Blanc movie.
I love that movie. They re-released it for Batman day yesterday. I'd never seen it in theaters. Had a total blast!
It's still the best Batman film.
Trial and Error (1997), with Michael Richards, Jeff Daniels and Charlize Theron. I found a "new old stock" DVD still sealed at a local used book shop, the old-style folding cardboard clicky case. So I decided to give it a try. I enjoyed the movie. I usually don't go for the rom-coms, but this one had less focus on the rom and more on the com. But man, DVD looks like garbage on a modern TV. The blocky visual artifacts, the aliasing... I would have enjoyed it a lot more if it was in a high-definition format.
I actually got to see the two best Batman movies that day. "Mask of the Phantasm", or the Animated Movie, and the 89 one. They're apples and oranges, but both are tied for best Batman film.
King Kong 1976
Jeff Bridges and Jessica Lange
It wasn't bad, although compared to the Peter Jackson one in 2005, which was magnificent, it looked it's age
I watched the new live action Disney Pinocchio yesterday, and I enjoyed it.
What a coincidence! I watched the Pitch Meeting for the new live action Disney Pinocchio the other day, and I also enjoyed it!
Avatar, back on the big screen. Still one of the best movies for the best theatrical experience.
Dusted of a nice 4K version of Rogue One last night. After watching the first 3 episodes of Andor the other night, it was like revisiting an old friend .... Much better than I remembered, even though it was, like, my 5th. viewing....
I'm gonna wait to rewatch it after the show's over.
Seemed like a good movie
I've been doing a The Hobbit/LOTR Extended Editions rewatch to go along with reading the books.
This is my third time with The Hobbit movies, and at least my 5th or 6th time with the LOTREEs.
I realized that I've still never seen extended editions of The Hobbit movies. They're not streaming anywhere for free, and I never got around to renting them before I stopped paying to watch individual streaming movies.
Same. Eagerly awaiting Andor's conclusion before dipping back in to Rogue One.
The Extended Editions of the Hobbit are hit and miss. Some scenes are really well done and others just drag on. I still think "An Unexpected Journey" is the best of the lot.
