Ready Player One is what we saw last night. While visiting my bro in NM he has wanted to go to the movies every night. He didn't think I'd know anyone in this film, but it stars Tye Sheridan, Mark Rylance and Ben Mehndelson. It is the only movie I've seen, and the third 3-D movie, where a hoard of people come running across a field to battle the enemy. Check that I've seen Braveheart but this is the first with CGI. I hope the USofA doesn't go the way of the film but if it does I don't want to be around to live like that. I'd give it a yeah see it in the price reduced theater near you.

Muscle Shoals This is a very interesting story of the music biz ala The Wrecking Crew. I remember a while back one in here mentioning this film. I would agree it is worth seeing and like most of what is real it is better than fiction.

Upgrade and Isle of Dogs. In another post I said I was in NM visiting my bro, he keeps a condo out here. He mentioned he sees a lot of movies he ain't kidding.

He went to one last night and is out seeing another tonight. A couple days ago I saw Upgrade. What a bloody mess that was. A man and his wife, a young couple, live in the not too future. Technology plays a huge role in this movie as it is taking over humanity, anyone who resembles a human is made to seem less. God help us if we become anymore like this movie.

In Isle of Dogs a whole species of animal is going to be wiped out due to the disease they carry. Smart, kind, young people come up with a cure/treatment but those in charge want to shut them down and cause genocide to the doomed species. It is a Wes Anderson film and a lot of the usual actors supply the voices to the stop action characters. It is shot ala The Fantastic Mr. Fox. If you liked that one and like Wes Anderson then see this one.

Deadpool 2 - really fucking violent, vulgar and funny. If you loved the first DP, you’ll love this one also.

A Quiet Place - well done high concept horror flick set mostly on a family farm in the near future after the country has been overrun by murderous creatures that hunt and kill via sound. So if you want to survive, you need to stay very quiet.

1945, The Reformed. In between funny, fucking violent movies I have seen two films. The first is about an Hungarian Town during the time the A Bombs were dropped on the Japanese. A town official's son is getting married and two Jewish men come into town with a wagon and two crates. Everyone in the town is guilty of moving in when the Jews were shipped off to work camps. Yet the official signed off on the transactions as that is his job. The slow pace and paranoia build until the planned events of the day are secondary.

Ethan Hawke is a priest in The Reformed. His church is very old in the County of Albany, it was used as a railroad for escaped, or fleeing slaves. Now it is a tourist site with a souvenir shop. He is to have a ceremony with Abundant Life, a huge Christian Church, the Govenor, and a head of a large company which pollutes the world. He is very torn between hope and despair, and without giving away too much of the film, he must decided what is God's Will and what is his own.

If one is a huge fan of funny, fucking violent films these two would feel very slow, and I wouldn't recommend them. However if one likes films I would.

Hereditary.

This movie is a good movie that could have been very good or great had they cut down the running time (I counted 2 Hours). Toni Collette gives the performance of her lifetime. I think it is best actress worthy, and had this performance been in a movie that was a sure lock for Best Picture nomination, she would win it. This is such an amazing performance. I see her very much being the next Frances McDormand. 3/4

3/4

All the Way

This is an HBO take of Lyndon Johnson. I expected significantly more bias here (there definitely were moments), it is surprisingly historically relevant and get us a reasonably rair representation of the man. Once again, this is a movie that is driven by a great performance by Bryan Cranston who absolutely nails LBJ.

3/4

Solo- I was pessimistic going into the theater, but overall was not too bad, with some neat nostalgic moments. Plot not terrible, just drags a bit. Perhaps I found it decent solely in comparison to the two terrible main movies. Not sure what the writers were thinking with the Lando-robot angle. 2 of 4 stars.

I did a double bill today. Deadpool 2 and Avengers Infinity War. I have a tough time deciding which one was a better movie as they were so strong for different reasons.

As for Deadpool 2, I was kind of skeptical as to whether they could pull it off as the gag was pulled off so perfectly in the 1st movie. However, this movie was absolutely hilarious. It took a much different route than I anticipated. And it didn't rely exclusively on making fun of comic movie tropes, but had some great Stand alone comedic moments as well.

This was not as good as the first one, but exceptional for a sequel.

3.5/4

Honesty, the same dick jokes, 4th wall breaks and endless shots at DC wore on me in Deadpool 2.Toward the end I was just rolling my eyes instead of laughing.

Agreed. Deadpool 2 was pretty much meh, for me. It wasn't bad, just very not as good.

Took the kids to Incredibles 2 yesterday. Action-packed, for a Pixar movie. It was good, as all Pixar movies are...
