So I watched " The Art of Racing in the Rain" the other night.
As someone with a 13 year old dog and who has been on the shit end of a custody dispute, I will 100% never recommend that movie to anyone.

It is hard to bruise the Cruise
I like some of his movies, but I think he's just fucking nuts.
No kidding, I would watch the sequel to Top Gun.

Would you consider American Made good
I haven't watched this one. It actually sounds good, he's great in action movies.

Watched this one recently, it was actually very fast paced and entertaining. Reminded me a bit of "The Vice" how it was filmed.

I watched Knives Out over the weekend. There are several big names in it, and they play off each other well (with the exception of Daniel Craig, didn't care much for his performance). Nevertheless, it's a light, fun movie.

I'm going the watch Uncut Gems this weekend.

This past weekend I watched The Last Black Man in San Francisco. It is beautifully shot. I can't believe there hasn't been more buzz about this film.
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ ... re-1182136

. . . by far the best narrative film I saw and stands as a perfect blend of a very particular personal story and a larger expression about a city, social change and an individual's reckoning with family and where he grew up. Every scene is fresh and unpredictable, visual poetry and realism are exquisitely woven together and for quite a long time there's no way to know where it's going. Not so many films these days are so expressive of their specific settings. Here, the observations about the city and how it’s changed — from the team of director/co-writer Joe Talbot, co-writer Rob Richert and the "story by" team of Talbot and his lifelong best friend and the film's star Jimmie Fails (Talbot is white, Fails is black) — are very keenly expressed. It’s one of the most distinctive debuts I've seen in a long time.

I watched Unbroken a couple of nights ago. It was pretty good, worth a watch.

I'm a sucker for any films involving being helpless on a raft and sharks. It's my worst fear I think.

So Bill and Ted 3 was really, really good. I'd have never guessed. Really enjoyable.

Great to hear!

Looking forward to it. :thumb:

I was worried that it would tarnish a good childhood memory. :bigrin:

Same. I had just bought a projector and screen for my back patio and wanted to christen it with a new release that I would hopefully really enjoy so I took a chance. It was fun feeling like I was at a theater.

You can get mini projectors and foldable screens for super cheap right now. I plugged in my Firestick and we were off.

Really good film. :thumb:

Doc about 4 pioneer women architects. Nicely done/engaging. You have to live in Canada to have access to stream the movie. Or use your VPN and pick a Canadian city to stream it.
:noclue:

(I have a link too if you can't access it, good for three days)



THE FILM
City Dreamers is a film about our changing urban environment and four trailblazing women architects who have been working, observing and thinking about the transformations shaping the cities of today and tomorrow for over 70 years.

Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and Denise Scott Brown may not be household names, but architecture and urban planning aficionados likely know that these women have worked with some of the greatest architects of our time, including the likes of Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn and Robert Venturi. In the course of their inspiring careers, they have left an indelible mark on several cities across North America and Europe.

I watched Gran Torino last night. Hmmmmmmmm.....wasn't that impressed. Not sure if I've ever been a big Clint 'fan'. Is Million Dollar Baby any good?
