    Hollywood can kiss my a$$.  If I wanted more PC indoctrination I’d go get another worthless liberal arts degree.  Been there, done that.

    Over the Winter months we might watch a few Agatha Christie mysteries from the library, the ones made by the BBC are surprisingly good, but you couldn’t pay me to sit through anything from tinsel-town.

    But I’m a curmudgeonly old fart.  😄

  • Number one priority for the Worsham family is Jurassic World, Fallen Kingdom.

    Yawn… Han Solo was once married to a wookie (google it)…

    Hostiles with Christian Bale looks cool. Though I am a sucker for Christian Bale movies.

    I just hope it sticks to the winning formula of depicting all white folks as innocent victims and native Americans as bloodthirsty savages. Because we all know that’s what it was really like.

    It was. I was there.

    It’s not a movie, but as a TV show I’m enjoying COLONY.

    Kind of like a modern day V.



  • Saw “Darkest Hour” nominated for 6 Oscars last night……excellent movie on UK politics, May of 1940, can highly recommend it…Gary Oldman does a fantastic job as Winston Churchill.

    Darkest Hour had 40 times more PLANES THAN Nolans Dunkirk, that’s why it got 6 and Nolan ZERO

    I quite agree. I recommend it too.

    I saw Black Panther and i loved it!!


  • 2018 2017 2016

    Black Panther is one of the best Marvel movies, due in large part to a well-drawn and acted badguy.



  • Darkest Hour is something I got to see.  I am a huge Churchill fan.

    DH had more German planes flying over Dunkirk than that silly Dunkirk movie by the same name.

    I rarely go out to movies much (stupid kids and family get in the way…  :x :lol:).

    But I did manage to see Black Panther.  To my utter surprise I enjoyed it.  I usually hate, HATE superhero movies, but this one was ok.  Probably somewhere between the great Dark Knight w/Joker (“it’s not about the money but about sending a message…”) or Bane (“do you feel in charge?”) and Wonder Woman, which I didn’t like mostly because the story sucked but to look at the WW was good.

    I might, might, be tempted to see the Han Solo thing. But I was so disappointed by Force Awakens (I hated it, and fell asleep through much of it to boot) that I am not sure I can sit through another Disney Star Wars.



  • FINALLY!!! The Incredibles 2 is coming out June 18. I’m barely in the “Incrdible generation” and I’m super excited about it. If you haven’t seen the trailer for it, you can find it by Googling it. If you haven’t seen the first Incredibles, I definitely recommend seeing it. It is a great clean family movie.

    Who is going to watch Infinity War Avenger or Solo?

    I’ve been taking my son to see the Disney Star Wars movies as they’ve come out. We haven’t always been thrilled with the product but it’s time together all the same. I expect that we will go see Solo as well.

    I haven’t been keeping up with the Marvel movies, and don’t go to movies much anymore anyways, so if I see Avengers Infinity War at all it will likely be after it leaves the theaters.

    Finally think I have hit the wall on Marvel superhero movies. Must have happened after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (which was a truly excellent film - saw it 3 times in theaters). I just found myself not caring anymore. Tried watching Spiderman Homecoming and found out I would rather sleep or watch Laurence of Arabia. Didn’t even make it halfway through. Haven’t seen any Marvel films since then. Seeing near invincible beings try to punch each other into submission has become trite.

    Very similar situation for Star Wars. When there is no end in sight and the plots are repeated and there is only endless continuity, the films are not very interesting. Honestly, the only reason I may end up going to see Solo is to confirm this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjEd3DpH_e0

    I think there is a high probability their ideas are in the actual film.

    You should give BP (Black Panther) a shot in DVD, though LHoffmann 😉.

    I don’t mind trying a film on bluray/dvd… however, I have come to realize that I just have no time anymore for an uninteresting film. Not to say that Black Panther is that, I guess I would need to watch to find out.

    I just have very little faith that anything in the superhero film industry has the capacity to be either artistic, deeply thought provoking, exciting or original anymore. Let alone a combination of all those in a truly great film. Marvel has their formula down and a cadre of protagonists with their own films or team films… all of which have served to make inevitable successive films mostly repetitive and lacking in weight. DC, in their haste to catch up to Marvel’s success, has massively bungled their first 3-5 films with an unappealing aesthetic and hacked writing/directing. Makes me not care to watch any of them at this point.

    The lone recent exception was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. That was an excellent film. Highly entertaining, funny, music that dovetailed exceedingly well with the subject matter of the film and surprisingly well written character arcs.
