    So, I wound up seeing Avengers: Endgame six times, using my AMC Stubs each time to get a ticket.

    The Intruder was a great way to see Dennis Quaid as a villain, but about midway through the movie I lost all sympathy for the couple in the house when it was revealed that he had cheated on her, and she still married him, wanted to make babies with him, and got him to drop three million on a new house, but still didn't trust him to order ice cream without flirting with the counter girl.

    Long Shot was okay, but two of the jokes that made me laugh in the trailer aren't even in the movie.

    The Bishop's Wife was a nice, classic film to watch. And it was one from Cary Grant I hadn't seen before, though I think Charade will always be my favorite, followed by Topper.

    Perfect Bid was kind of interesting, right up until ya find out that the dude talking about his history with The Price is Right isn't the guy who got the "perfect bid," but had been in line with the guy who did.

    Won't You Be My Neighbor? is proof that Fred Rogers was too good for this world and we didn't deserve him.

    The Hustle was awful. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels did not need a remake, much less an unfunny one with the genders swapped out. The jokes from the original fall flat in this one, and the changes they make for the new one aren't funny.

    Pokemon: Detective Pikachu - how did the kid not recognize his father's voice the whole time? Seriously?!?

    Action Point was just Jackass with a narrative, instead of random WTF did I just watch someone do?!?

    Poms was alright, I especially liked Diane Keaton's dark sense of humor, and it was nice to see Rhea Perlman in the movie. I've only every really watched her on Cheers.

    The John Wick sequel was friggin' awesome! Loved that movie, the action sequences were nuts and Ian McShane was bad ass, as usual.

    Tolkien was a pretty standard biopic movie, but I did like the integration of LotR imagery into the WWI battle sequences and the shadow credits.

    Booksmart was alright, made me laugh a few times during it. Though really, what are the odds of the lesbian's crush & the straight girl's crush being interested in each other? Ya think they would have noticed that at some point...

    The new live action Aladdin isn't as good as the animated original, but Will Smith's Genie is worth checking out, I think. I wore my animated Aladdin tie, which has Aladdin & the monkey on the carpet flying away from a giant faced Jafar, and a little kid at the theater lost his mind over it when his dad pointed me out to him.

    Brightburn was gruesome, bloody, and really kinda cool.

    Ma got pretty twisted there to the end, and made me angry that they showed scenes from the finale in the freakin' trailer.

    Rocketman was disappointing. It was more musical than music bio, and while they used Elton John's songs, it was really his music, with the changes, cuts, and such used.

    Fathom Events had screenings of Saving Private Ryan this past week, I went to see it last Sunday. The last time I watched this movie was via VHS on Fort Jackson, South Carolina back in 2000. I think once every twenty years is about right for a viewing. First time seeing it on a theater screen, so it gets added to the list.

    The new Godzilla was so much better than the last Godzilla. I wanna go see it again.

    And I went out to the Alamo Drafthouse in North Richland Hills to see Dark Phoenix 2D last night with Adm Hawthorne. I really liked it, and will be going again to see it. No mid or end credit bonus scenes, and no Hugh Jackman, but still, it was a pretty good X-Men movie.

    I went out to AMC Tyler this afternoon to use my three Stubs tickets.

    I watched Dark Phoenix for the second time, first & only time in IMAX, since it was the last showing for that format. Got a free key chain left over from last week's fan event, too. This movie is definitely in my "Top Five" for the franchise, along with X2: X-Men United, The Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Deadpool. There's a lot to like about it, and very little to hate.

    Followed that with the first showing of the MiB sequel in IMAX. Got a free pair of sunglasses with my ticket. So disappointed. Most of the humor falls flat, cartoonishly bad CGI for some of the aliens, its clear how things are gonna go from the first flashback, before it flashes back even further before catching back to present day. Only one reference to the Will Smith / Tommy Lee Jones movies, aside from O, and its in every trailer, you've seen it. And no rap song over the credits! What the hell?!? Can it even be called a part of the franchise without that?

    And then my second viewing of the Godzilla sequel, this time in 2D, since I missed about a half an hour of it the first time I went to see it. I missed quite a bit, mostly human stuff, but some with Mothra, too. Pretty good monster movie, and a lot better than the first one in this franchise.

    Already reserved two of my AMC Stubs tickets for next week, will be going to see Shaft (2019) and Late Night. I also have a plan to see Field of Dreams thanks to Fathom Events on Tuesday. Haven't watched that one in years & years, and never on a theater screen.

    Field of Dreams (1989) - Fathom Events

    Went out to AMC Lufkin to use two of my three Stubs tickets for the week.

    First up, Shaft...it did not make me want to go out & find Samuel L Jackson's first Shaft, or Richard Roundtree's original films. There's no mystery to the murder they're investigating, and, to be honest, I thought it was way too vulgar. Or maybe I'm just getting too old, and have seen too many movies.

    Followed that with Late Night, which made me wonder how many times can a movie name drop Steve Martin without actually featuring Steve Martin? Had the theater to myself for that one, and, oddly enough, there were Spanish subtitles.

    I'm going to try to go out this afternoon for a showing of Field of Dreams at the Lufkin Cinemark.

    And since AMC Nacogdoches dropped Dark Phoenix 3D from their schedule (I swear there were two shows listed for that format this Thursday), I'll be going out to AMC Tyler to use my third stubs ticket to watch Toy Story 4 IMAX.

    - edit -

    Went to see Field of Dreams at the Cinemark Lufkin yesterday afternoon. It was a Fathom Events screening for the film's 30th anniversary. There was pre-show trivia questions & facts, an intro & ending from Turner Classic Movies, and the movie itself. Still a classic, no doubt. First time seeing it on a theater screen, so its added to the list.
