    Sucker punch. 4/10

    I didn't get it. Plenty of eye candy for me to stick around. Cgi was typical Snyder, who had been apparently making bad movies since been making bad movies.

    Finally saw Hateful Eight. Big QT fan. It wasn't his best, but like the majority of his movies, the story was compelling and I was entertained throughout. 6.8/10.

    I surprisingly liked The Favourite. Very good.

    i'm not sure how I rate that movie but it is worth seeing. It was well done and well acted. Interesting story line but walking out of the theater i just felt weird and uncomfortable.

    Very good. If you like Ex Machina or Hardcore Henry you'll love this.

    Hell or High Water - 8.5/10

    Jeff Bridges was great in this. Had doubts watching Chris Pines act as a cowboy but he did pretty well.

    I thought it was excellent, reminded me of Amadeus mixed with Barry Lyndon but much more vulgar.....

    Aquaman 3/10

    Second half of the film is decent; first half of the film is so bad I nearly walked out.

    Speaking of Jeff Bridges, am I really the first person to rate

    Bad Times at the El Royale​

    Strong cast. I recommend this for anyone who likes Tarantino movies. Has a Tarantino feel. Drew Goddard (writer/director) is a writer, director, producer from Cloverfield, The Martian, Lost, Daredevil, World War Z, and more.

    Jeff Bridges
    Jon Hamm is in it, too, with an interesting accent.
    Chris Hemsworth -- Thor
    Dakota Johnson
    two other main characters who do a great job
    plus, a young actress in Vice who reminds me of Summer Glau, the actress who played River Tam in Firefly

    I agree. Venom was a little better than I expected...7ish out of 10. Maybe my low expectations made me rate it higher.

    I just rewatched Solo: A Star Wars Story. I stand by my original take that this is a good Star Wars movie that was under-rated for whatever reason. I think a lot of the spill over hate for Episode 8 nailed it.

    Yeah, I kinda forgot, too, until my brother recommended it.

    It won't blow you away, but worth a watch. My complaint would be that there are a lot of characters that I liked, but not enough time to develop them all ... and somehow, suspense was lacking, given that is the main sell.

    Rocky

    10/10. A classic that holds up amazingly!

    Agreed with both of these. Just watched Venom last night and it was surprisingly good. A tweak here or there and a sequel could absolutely stand up to the MCU.

    I thought Solo was going to suck and it was the first Star Wars movie I didn’t see within opening week since episode 1. Didn’t see until it hit the Redbox. I liked the guy who played Han. It entertained and I’d look forward to a sequel if they made it.

    It was the first Star Wars since 1 I had not seen in theaters also. I liked Han and the Deathstar blueprint movie better than the other two so far.

    My wife and daughter wanted to see Crazy Rich Asians, I sort of watched it in the background while I was doing other things on the laptop. I give the film makers credit for making the female lead an econ professor at NYU, but there's only so much you can do to rework Cinderella. Maybe a 2 out of 10.

    Not sure if serious.


    Venom: 6.9/ 10 - After seeing a couple posters on this thread that I like give it favorable reviews..
    I finally said why the hell not for I saw fantastic 4 once, willingly

    . Nowhere close to the turrible reviews. I felt time went by quickly, so I was engaged. However there was something missing. It was like playing Mortal Kombat on SNES with the blood replaced by sweat. But I would definitely watch again. Tom Hardy's venom voice 20/10. I found it better than his Bane and almost as good as his Alfie.

    "Replicas", starring Keanu Reeves, as told by movie reviews:

    Replicas was directed by television writer-producer Jeffrey Nachmanoff, who only has a couple other feature directing credits, and was written by Chad St. John, a screenwriter who sounds like a porn star and whose apparent Twitter bio (not verified) describes him as a “male exotic thinker.” He previously wrote Peppermint, in which Jennifer Garner fights MS-13.

    Long story short, all signs pointed to Replicas being the kind of movie that’s almost better to have described to you by exasperated critics than actually seen, and thus a perfect candidate for Plot Recreated With Reviews. That’s when we try to piece together the entire plot of a movie using nothing but expository quotes from movie reviews (no analysis!).

    I think it turned out pretty well! Here we go…

    ACT 1

    [​IMG]

    Keanu Reeves, whose line deliveries have slowed to the point where he sounds like a record being played on the wrong speed [Detroit News]

    stars as a neuroscientist, Will Foster [AV Club]

    whose work is conducted at Bionyne, a biomedical research company in Puerto Rico. [Detroit News]

    Foster is first seen waiting for a donated brain that is being brought to him via helicopter, cross-cutting between Reeves anxiously staring at his watch and the brain being rushed into the facility. During an operation to place this brain into a robot body, Dr. Foster is asked, “Do you concur?” by a colleague and Reeves cries, “I concur!” [TheWrap]

    [Foster] is working on bringing the dead back to life by transferring their neural pathways into synthetic lifeforms — basically, downloading human brains into robot bodies.

    He does this by standing around in a room with futuristic headgear on saying things like “boot the mapping service” to his trusty assistant, Ed (“Silicon Valley’s” Thomas Middleditch). [Detroit News]

    A male corpse is wheeled into a laboratory. Foster announces to those assembled that the body is dead and that they’re about to transplant his brain into a robot. [THR]

    After the procedure is completed, and just before Will can scream “It’s alive!,” the newly revived [THR]

    understandably loses its cool when it sees metal hands and legs [RogerEbert.com]

    and begins to tear at its own body. [THR]

    Lots of yelling and ripping at metal ensues. [RogerEbert.com]

    Nevertheless, Foster is encouraged. “This one spoke!” he cries optimistically before going home to his picture-perfect blonde wife Mona (Alice Eve) and their three rambunctious children. [TheWrap]

    Her reaction is one for the books. “You can’t just keep bringing people back from the dead until you have this stuff worked out,” she points out, with less urgency than a wife reminding her husband to remember to put the toilet seat down. [THR]

    Mona has been given one line of dialogue here about being a doctor, but she looks and behaves like a personal trainer. [TheWrap]

    She’s worried that he’s losing his ability to tell right from wrong. Playing God does that to a scientist — makes him a Mad Scientist. He insists we’re all just “chemistry” and “neural pathways.” She’s talking about “the soul.” [RogersMovieNation]

    Every line she speaks sounds hastily redubbed, and her re-emergence as a clone [spoiler alert!] betrays no additional unease. [The Verge]

    Vice was great. 7.236 out of 9
