    Colombian art house film about a squad of child soldiers guarding a western prisoner and a milking cow, with touches of Lord of the Flies.

    They call it a dark comedy thriller. I honestly didn't find it that funny...the jokes were mistimed/misplaced and way too infrequent and not funny imo. If they were more often it would have fit that style I suppose. Pretty unique film, though.

    Star is Born w bradley cooper and gaga. Not a movie for me but no sports to watch so I picked it for my wife who loved the Streisand version. She walked away after 20 min and I watched entire movie. Figure you know someone after 35 yrs marriage.

    Anyway, surprisingly enjoyable film. They make very appealing couple, her voice is incredible and he holds his own too. Couldve used subtitles for all his mumbling and didnt understand few plot points but otherwise good way to spend rainy night in front of tv

    The Good Liar (2019) - 6/10

    Slow paced in delivery, but very well put together and keeps your interest to the end thanks to the great acting from the cast.

    The plot is predictable, but does take a few unexpected turns and a very unexpected dark turn towards the end, although the ending is pretty much as you would expect.

    Midway, on Sunday night.

    Some usual Hollywood exaggerations at times, but generally quite accurate historically, the CGI planes generally fly realistically, and the battle sequences are decent. Better than the 1976 movie of the same name and far better than Pearl Harbor.

    WAAAAYYYY over rated. Good but I will live a happy life if I never again hear that obnoxious laugh that Phoenix came up with for the character.

    so disappointed in it as a movie where I expect to believe in characters dialog and relationships. this had dialog straight out of a hallmark tv movie. the racing was as unrealistic as youd expect for mainstream Hollywood but still exciting. very inferior to the hunt v lauda movie rush for few yrs ago. that was very good. forget comparing this to mcqueen

    Forget trying to compare Midway to Charlton Heston also.

    They just don't make movie stars like they used to.

    In fact, they make them using computers.

    true but I thought the 2 guys playing lauda and hunt were fabulous. I usually like bale and damon too. it was just a terrible script and fact that damon doesn't look like Shelby at all

    Wife & I saw "Doctor Sleep" over the weekend. She had read the book, and I hadn't. We both liked it quite a bit. :)

    Ford vs. Ferrari

    Worth seeing IMO. The replicas looked neat. I liked the 906, but I doubt if there were really that many in the race. It seemed like every car in the race that was not a Ford GT or Ferrari P3 was a Porsche.

    A funny line was when a Porsche rep asked if Miles was available for Sebring. Miles told Shelby something like "I thought you felt the same way about Germans as we did".

    Art of racing in the rain. On plane to los Angeles. Read the book and loved it. Movie started well w accurate racing and ended well despite being unrealistic. Problem was overly melodramatic middle that ruined it. Should have just followed the book

    It Chapter 2

    Pretty crazy movie. The opening scene pretty much set the tone with some crazy language/violence (not clown related surprisingly). Rated R for sure and not something to take the kids for thinking it's just something scary. The clown was not the crazy stuff imo.
