    I've never understood people's fascination with torture porn like that or Hostel, etc...

    Kong skull island. 8/10. Good popcorn flick. Some great cinematography and a great soundtrack.

    Message from the King: 5/10

    A brutal revenge movie. Nothing special about it at all.

    That's probably the worst movie ever made. Good thing you stopped watching, it gets much worse.

    Frost/Nixon: 8/10

    Another movie that was a great film, partly because I didn't know the story, and then secondly because what would appear to have been a trivial event long after the scandal was built into an interesting clash between two men struggling to get back in the game. The only drawback, the interview didn't really do what they say it did according to the historians ( extraction of coverup, guilt, and apology by Nixon ). So that was disappointing to learn. But the story itself was brilliantly told if only it were to have happened like that. "Guy" from Galaxy Quest did not die in it either.

    Atomic Blonde 9/10. I hadn't watch any trailers so I didn't know what to expect, other than Charlize kicking ass. Good story and great music to go along with some good action sequences.

    Jaysus, who gets the blame for the editing on The Mummy? The editor or director? It was like watching something made by a high schooler who had just discovered Jean Luc Godard and did not restrain himself on the jump cuts.

    Indeed. Great cap to his trilogy alongside Sicario and Hell or High Water.

    The Hippopotamus - 9/10 - If you like the idea of an old retired poet who wrote several books, but now drinks a lot and constantly cusses in a variety of ways, using words only native English speakers or Literature students might know, in a posh setting where he's despised by everyone with an absurd yet believable story line then go watch this. The humor is dry and dirty so you have to like that because there's plenty of it. The story is a mix of drama, humor and fantasy with a woman asking the retired poet to investigate miracles happening at his friend's country manor.

    The Founder 8/10

    Pretty good little film with a great performance from Michael Keaton


    Anabelle Creation 6/10

    Very well acted and great technical design but it just didn't deliver the scares IMO.

    Detroit 8.5 / 10
    (Yes, I am obsessed w' Detroit). This is an amazingly immersive film.
    It's hard to watch, but I'd rate it as important, even instructive.

    Breakdown:

    10 out of 10 b/c for the first time I really really felt like I was in a black American's shoes (granted, in 1967). There's a calm little scene, late in the movie, and I won't spoil it, but a white viewer could well be like me: ohhhhhh ****. Nothing is said, you just suddenly realize a perspective shift when a single person walks into the picture.

    10 out of 10 for the cast and their acting.

    5 out of 10 for really bad an unnecessary hand-held work making me want to scream at director half the time.
