Who has seen what?

I’m still hoping to catch Three Billboards and Lady Bird. And then there’s a whole bunch of new ones on my list.

But I did see The Greatest Showman last night. LOVED it, through and through. LOVED it.

I also saw The Greateat Showman and, like you, I loved it.

The Darkest Hour is next on my list. Hope it is better than Dunkirk which so many seemed to love and which I found a boring mess.

I saw and liked “Three Billboards” a lot. GF, not nearly as impressed. I intend to see the Churchill flick soon.

Good to know about the Greatest Showman. My family's going to the movies this weekend and we're deciding between that and Three Billboards.

If you don't mind venturing off to Netflix movies for a hot minute... If "Bright" with Will Smith pops up on your list, do yourself a favor and skip it. We had to turn it off after 30 minutes it was that bad.

Going to see ‘All the Money in the World’ today about the J Paul Getty’s grandson being kidnapped and him not agreeing to pay the ransom. With Christopher Plummer, Michelle Williams (who was also in Greatest Showman) and Mark Wahlberg.

I was going to say the same. The premise was fun, but the execution was absolutely awful. How in earth did Will Smith get talked into this movie?
Do or do not. There is no try.

The Big Sick, on Neflix, is really quite good.

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

Saw “Three Billboards” and absolutely LOVED it. Best I’ve seen in a while. Great script, great acting.

Money talks... And it's been a long time since I remember him being in a blockbuster movie.

More than 11 million people have streamed bright so far.... Or maybe it had been streamed that many times. Either way,a lot of people are watching

Saw ‘All the Money in the World’ today. Very well done. Not sure it’s an Oscar-worthy movie, but it was well done and entertaining. But Christopher Plummer’s performance is Oscar-worthy. And considering he was a very last-minute replacement ... spectacular.

I've heard that this movie is really good, even more so by the last minute replacement.

 

Ridley Scott and Martin Scorsese are basically my gods. Not only because they make good films but that they have the ability to keep their finger on what makes good entertainment well into their 70s.

 

Ridley Scott just turned 80 years old, for ****'s sake. And Martin Scorsese made his first "kid's film" in his late 60s. It's amazing.

"Mollie's Game" was really good -- Aaron Sorkin wrote and directed, and the story and dialog are both strong. 

 

I also enjoyed "Hostiles", which involves a physical and psychological journey about inhumanity and redemption.
