One of my all-time favorites. I'd put it on my list with The Princess Bride, The Hangover, Bull Durham, Almost Famous, and a few others as movies I'll stop and watch every time they're on.

Not quite the same ole cookie cutter movie. The actors came across as real & likeable. If you like romantic comedies this is a must see. I really liked it.
Of the Kumail Nanjiani movies, I'd rank it 3rd behind the Big Sick (awesome movie) which is a clear #1, and Stuber (dumb movie but very funny at times).

"Love, Wedding, Repeat" on Netflix is an ok romcom if you are looking for a little humor after watching all the depressing news. If you like Rome, as we do, the scenery is worth watching it for. Had a few good laughs and interesting characters.

What are you doing!?" so many times. Really enjoyed it, it's pretty rare for a movie to give me that kind of emotional jolt.

This one is on Netflix. I had low expectations, Adam Sandler is on it after all. Greatly surprised about it, much better than expected. I recommend
it too.

This movie stars Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks, and involves the comedic adventures of the father of the bride and father of the groom on the eve of the wedding. I recommend this.
I liked this movie but liked the first one much more - starring peter Falk and Alan Arkin. Peter Falk was hysterical.

Foodie movie where an heir to a Mexican fast food empire (in which he
has little interest) is sent to New Mexico to search out authentic and
popular recipes to help bolster the company which is lagging in sales.
Boy meets girl, the inevitable misunderstanding, reconciliation, and a
happy, smiley, ending. Though I am having some fun with this, the film
was actually pretty good. Foodies will enjoy. Viewed on Amazon Prime.
I have to say, I enjoyed the movie review from the Santa Fe Reporter more than the film itself.

Valentine's Day, on Netflix.

This is a nice romantic comedy starring Ashton Kuscher Jennifer Garner, and many others, about the romantic adventures of several couples young and old on a single day.

I resent movies that have a 'token' character to sublimely advocate 'progressive' agendas, and I generally turn them off. But I really enjoyed this one a lot.

Im being careful without giving too much away, but I had developed a lot of interest before the movie needlessly took a left turn.

I've never been a fan of Adam Sandler as a comic. I recall reviews about Uncut Gems when it was released calling it an Adam Sandler movie for those not liking Adam. Now that its streaming I watched it last night on Netflix. I appreciated Sandler's performance but, for me, it was a rotten movie. I made it about 45 minutes. Even by today's non standards too much, constant foul language.

I didn’t mind the language so much, but a frenetic anxious film about a degenerate gambler with no sense of decency, that I mind. I opted out around the 45 minute mark also.

They Shall Not Grow Old.

Description: A 2018 documentary film directed and produced by Peter Jackson. The film was created using original footage of the First World War from the Imperial War Museum's archives, most previously unseen, all over 100 years old by the time of release. Audio is from BBC and Imperial War Museum (IWM) interviews of British servicemen who fought in the conflict. Most of the footage has been colourised and transformed with modern production techniques, with the addition of sound effects and voice acting to be more evocative and feel closer to the soldiers' actual experiences.

Saw on DVD. The film needed subtitles in a few places.

300 Miles to Heaven (1989), available to stream on Netflix.

A touching film out of Poland, supposedly based on a true story.

Two young brothers (ages 11? and 14?) in a struggling family seek to escape Poland, find work, and help their parents. They manage to stow away in the undercarriage of a truck and end up in Denmark, but things don't exactly go as planned from there. The younger boy is the dreamer idealist and instigator and has doe eyes that will melt your heart. The older boy is more wary and hides his emotions.

If you liked Lion (2016) (especially the first half in which the 5 year old protagonist ends up stranded and alone in a city far from home), you'll probably like this.

Two weeks ago on DVD I watched Medium Cool, and it’s still as white hot as when I saw it over 50 years ago. In the intervening two weeks it is as if we are reliving Medium Cool.

Haskell Wexler was a brilliant cinematographer and even today the film looks great – like a film shot this year about the 60s. And then there is the iconic warning about tear gas late in the film. Look out Haskell, It’s real!

The reviews for this movie one weren't as good as the first, but I thought this movie was really good. An action thriller, to say the least. I'll watch The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest next.

I was curious about this movie. IMDb (7.2 rating) said you can stream it on Amazon through "Fandor" streaming service which I'm not familiar with. It looks like a 7-day free trial with Amazon Prime and then a $3.99/month fee after the trial.

I will add to my queue. :happy

I own very few DVD's although I used to rent them from Netflix (snail mail) many years ago but many were defective (although you could get some interesting movies that way and I think it still exists.)

Emma

The latest (2020) of many film versions of the Jane Austen
novel. Costumes, set designs, and outdoor locations were
extraordinary. Somewhat of a light and comical treatment
but the story was intact and faithful to the novel. Great
cast. Recommended.

Once Upon A Time Hollywood

Absorbing but meandering and uneven Tarantino flick. The attention to detail in recreating the ambience of late 1960's Hollywood was amazing. The one con I had was that the film felt too long, as though padded in a self-indulgent way. Good performances by Brad Pitts and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Recommended. DVD rental.

Watched a real psychological thriller with beautiful settings, good acting and several twists. It does have some things that might be uncomfortable but nothing that is gratuitous in terms of sexuality or violence. It is called the Wellness Cure.

Jojo Rabbit.

Description: Jojo is a lonely German boy who discovers that his single mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their attic. Aided only by his imaginary friend -- Adolf Hitler -- Jojo must confront his blind nationalism as World War II continues to rage on.

Saw on DVD.

If it is a comedy, it is one of the least funny ones I’ve seen in a long time. But it makes you think, and that is worth something.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties takes its title and the germ of an idea from a very short story by Neil Gaiman and goes on to be its own fragile and wonderful thing. (And I don't even like punk.) Streaming on Amazon Prime.

Yes, very well done. I think that it creates controversy because it is based on a well-known recent novel and movie doesn't seem to meet expectations of those who read it.

If you are into creepy mysteries/suspense, check out "I See You" on Prime. It's also billed as horror but it's a combination of genres, and quite unique with a great ending twist. The score is terrific also.

The Wind in the Willows (2006) with Matt Lucas, Mark Gatiss, Lee Ingleby, Bob Hoskins.

Watched on Amazon Prime.

A well done, live action, interpretation of the classic children's tale by Kenneth Grahame. We enjoyed it, but it's probably best for the target audience: children.

I went for it when I saw that Lee Ingleby and Bob Hoskins were in it. Apparently Matt Lucas and Mark Gates are well known and liked but I am not very familiar with them. I did recognize Matt Lucas as someone I have seen before.

Most people will probably remember Bob Hoskins from the movie Who Framed Jessica Rabbit. Lee Engleby may be familiar from his starring role as a young detective sergeant John Bacchus in the TV show Inspector George Gently.

Based on the success of the mega thread "What Book Are You Currently Reading?", I would like to start a new thread related to movies that Bogleheads could share with each other. Many of us have Netflix, Crackle, or another streaming service.

Best.
I just watched the movie White Comanche, staring William Shatner on free over the air TV (Grit channel).

This is a superb movie. Highly recommend.

This is a nice romantic comedy starring Ashton Kuscher Jennifer Garner, and many others, about the romantic adventures of several couples young and old on a single day.
I never saw this movie (likely because of the terrible reviews), but I just searched for some information about it and got the impression that it was trying to be Love Actually. If you liked the general structure of Valentine's Day but were turned off by some aspects of it, I recommend Love Actually.

For those folks who might enjoy old movies starring Peter Falk, I would like to recommend Murder By Death and also The Cheap Detective. Both of these are comedies and if you are a mystery lover, you will probably get a kick out of them.

And then there is What's Up, Doc? starring Ryan O'Neal and Barbara Streisand, another old movie. I know a few people who are definitely not Streisand fans for various reasons, so perhaps this movie is not for you. However, it is a fun little comedy, very silly at times.

I own these on DVD and watch them periodically when I want to see something light, funny, and which does not require any brain strain.

^^^ I would also recommend Paper Moon with Ryan O'Neal and directed by Peter Bogdanovich.

Both are good recommendations.
