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.

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.

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?

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.

I'm a fan of Sorkin.  I've greatly enjoyed practically every movie and show he's written.

Curious to hear what others thought about the shape of water...

It looks intriguing and has gotten some good reviews ... have you seen it or just asking because you are also intrigued?

 

I saw the new Jumanji movie. Definitely not award-winning, but fun and had it’s funny moments, especially thanks to Jack Black and Kevin Hart. Just a fun romp in a make-believe jungle.

I saw it. Reviews were immaculate, but I had some problems with it. For starters, it’s about a lady who gets...”romantic” with a fish...type guy...thing. Lotta people tend to like right past that.

Just took my son (12 going on 13) to 'Jumanji' this weekend and it was fun.  I think Kevin Hart/The Rock falls in his wheelhouse for humor, he watched 'The Agency' on a plane ride a year or so back and was giggling the entire time, so when the trailers for 'Jumanji' came out I knew we were going to it.

Lol ... when put like that, I think it’s moved down to my ‘watch at home when it’s on Netflix’ list.
