For a 3.5 hour movie - it didnt feel its length - and thats super high praise I think..;)

Exactly. For me, the line is Jackie Brown. Even at 2.5 hours, and with great scenes, I couldn't and still can't sit through it. I didn't have any issue with Irishman, at an hour beyond that. Fantastic pacing, IMHO.

Uncut Gems - Sandler decided to start acting and gives a great performance. Background music is what makes this movie even more epic.
Garnett is good too!

Lots of mixed reviews once again for these episodes of the sequel trilogy which concluded the Skywalker saga.

Liked it enough, so I'm seeing it again over the holidays. :cool:

It's a bit of a mystery to me given how absolute appalling the first three eps done by Lucas were, that these ones get so much shit tossed at them - like are we forgetting how low the bar was??
 
The new Star Wars, for me is similar to The Matrix: Revolutions or what Spectre was to Skyfall in the James Bond series: great set up with the previous two movies (The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi especially - took Star Wars into a whole new direction) and does nothing with them. Goes the safe route of mostly fan service. It even felt a bit like what Alien: Covenant was to Prometheus - some fixing of plot details from the previous movie (we finally get a bit of an explanation with Leia's Mary Poppins bit in The Last Jedi).

I didn't hate it, just felt like all the hoopla that had been built up was overblown. Some great Star Wars moments in the film, but they're sprinkled a bit few and far between.
 
Spoiler for Dolittle

Did you guys know that the end of Dolittle has Robert Downey Jr. pulling a set of bagpipes that was lodged in a dragon's asshole?

I was completely sober when I wrote that - and it's true. Not a joke.

Watched Army of the Dead, which really, really, really borrows and owes a lot to Aliens, right down to characters, story beats, plot points and even deaths. There's a lot of things to like about the movie, casting of people like Tig Notaro and Dave Bautista helps, the characters are each distinct individuals and despite being 35 years old - Aliens is a very solid architecture to build a story on. The opening sequence is probably the best part of the movie, but there are some effectively well shot action sequences, some gorgeous Renaissance painting like moments and he can make busy onscreen gunplay pretty easy to follow and exciting to watch - think the first Predator movie, and, of course, Aliens.

Thing is, it leans so heavily on Aliens at times, you can't help but think that Aliens did most of what's going onscreen better, with much, much less.

I didn't love it, there's more to like than dislike about the movie, but it didn't feel like it was quite as good as it should be as a whole. And despite it not feeling it, it's a pretty long movie at 2.5 hours. I'm likely never going to watch this again, unless it's on a date and I really like her.
 
I look back at my review of Joker, and it's funny how much my opinion of it has changed.

I still think Joaquim Pheonix's performance is once of the best that year, but the movie's changed in context over the years. It feels less about a movie that was about mental illness and kind of turned it into something a bit more twisted. It's almost I like it a bit less each time I see it.

I'm really curious how the movie is going to age in about 10 or 20 years.
 
Wrath of Man is really, really good - way above par for Jason Statham's usual actioners, and a really strong and steady hand behind the camera with Guy Ritchie directing. Some might dismiss it as being a typical Statham action film with some clever British themed wordplay, but there's a lot more to it.

Sort of like how Nobody could be dismissed as another dad action film, when there's a much more darker tone to the film - a man doing everything he can to protect the illusion that he created for himself of normalcy and coming to terms with the lie and how at odds it is with his past.
