I couldn't even make it through the entire trailer. Rap "music" ? Was the entire show really like that?
You may want to expand your horizons a little. It is really well done. And I am by no means a fan of "rap" music.
With my college degree in music, my "horizons" are expanded more than most, thank you. I still have specific preferences and tastes just like everyone else.


As do I. And my tastes do not include rap. But I really enjoyed Hamilton. That's all I was saying.
Maybe I should give it a try then. It wouldn't be the first time I passed judgement based on a trailer and ended up liking it. A few years ago I was shocked that the new Les Miserables would include Wolverine, Borat, and Gladiator singing to each other. But it was surprisingly good and I have watched it several times.

My wife and I were recently discussing how we feel our "attention span" for movies has greatly decreased in recent years. We have about 2000 movies on our home server, plus Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Amazon at our fingertips. And we still sometimes sit for over an hour scrolling through the lists trying to find something we want to watch. And we are much quicker to turn off a movie these days. In the old days, we would usually watch a movie to the end even if it wasn't that good.
Looking forward to your review of the complete show. :sharebeer

"MILF", just released on Netflix (USA)... OK, I love the scenery in the south of France, can handle subtitles and some tasteful nudity is not a deal breaker for me or my wife... but I couldn't make it through this one. Found the main characters unlikable, even though I always enjoyed plotlines like "Thirty Something" or "This Is Life", the supporting cast were "Vulger Hip", if I must coin a new phrase. :sharebeer . I think it's going to get the full NEW ON NETFLIX treatment, but I found it as shallow and lousy as "...sitting in a Starbucks and listening to others conversations"! Ahhh, remember that?...in the good old days? Good times...good times.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower on Netflix. A very well done coming of age movie. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope-and the unforgettable friends that help us through life. " We found it incredibly moving. Highly recommended !

The Tollbooth

A young Jewish girl, fresh out of art school, moves back in with
her parents as she prepares to make a mark in the art world
while also balancing a romantic relationship.
Her modern views clash with her parent's strong sense of tradition.
Nice independent film. A couple of other movies have a similar title,
this one came out in 2004. Setting is New York City.
Recommended
Viewed on DVD.

Southern Comfort (1981). I heard about this movie several times before, but have never seen it until tonight on YouTube. Very intense.

Hamilton - now, I'm no musical/Broadway fan in general. And I was skeptical due to all the hype surrounding this play. But Hamilton just blew me away. I was enthralled: the cleverness of the lyrics, the variety of the music, just the sheer experience of it all. I am still shaking my head - how could one man write all this, how could people possibly remember all these lyrics, songs, and dance moves given the fast pace? I envy those who have seen it live - although I admit, although the movie probably lacks the energy and spectacle of a live production; the movie version may be more accessible in that it helped to have the close-captions due to the rapid-fire nature of the lyrics.

First Cow
Rented on Verizon.
Worst movie I have seen in memory. Sloooooowwwww,
Weak story line, and very poor cinematography.
I stayed with it looking for the point, and I guess it shows what life may have been like in the Northwest in a small 1800's frontier outpost.
I know how it ended, but it must be deeper than I can see.
Anyway, my 2 cts.

True Romance, on Blu-ray DVD. This 1993 romance / crime movie was written by Quentin Tarantino. There are a lot of good actors -
Christian Slater, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Bronson Pinchot, Samuel L. Jackson. Tarantino didn't direct this film. It's not one of his best, but it was worth watching.

The ending won't disappoint if you're looking for a "Tarantino style" movie.

"Rosie" - a quiet drama filmed in Dublin, Ireland about 2 parents with 4 kids being suddenly evicted from their home and struggling to find temporary shelter in a crowded city with housing shortages. Although the topic sounds depressing, it was somewhat refreshing and helps me consider all of things I shouldn't take for granted. Very good acting.

Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and BFI London Film Festival.

Saw it on Kanopy but it's also on IMDB tv.

We watched “Logan Lucky” last night and really enjoyed it. Thank you LadyGeek, Peculiar_Investor and others for the tip. Great caper flick from 2017.

Also thought “Uncut Gems” was very well done, with Adam Sandler showing greater acting depth.

Last night, we watched "Broadcast News" (on Amazon Prime).
We enjoyed it, but I thought it got off to a slow start. Glad I continued.

This evening, we watched "Margin Call" (on Showtime).
The action all took place in one 24 hour period. We'd seen that before, and liked it, and we liked it again this time.
It's about a major financial meltdown, rather than just "margin calls".
I thought that Jeremy Irons did a great job, and that the acting was generally very good.

There was a scene where Demi Moore (in business attire) sits in a window in a very tall high-rise office building.
(I'm guessing that someone involved in the staging/script/physical scene saw "Lost In Translation", as it was really almost exactly like the positioning of Scarlet Johansson in a high rise hotel room window. It fit the character and situation much more in "Lost...")

The Last Full Measure.

Saw on Hulu.

Description: A 2019 American war drama film written and directed by Todd Robinson and distributed by Roadside Attractions. The story follows the efforts of Pentagon staffer Scott Huffman and many veterans to see the Medal of Honor awarded to William H. Pitsenbarger, a United States Air Force Pararescueman who flew in helicopter rescue missions during the Vietnam War to aid downed soldiers and pilots. The film stars Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt, Ed Harris, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Irvine and Peter Fonda, in his final, posthumous film role.

Decent movie until about the last 30 minutes, when it simultaneously drags on, bogs down, and leaves plot and story lines hanging and unanswered.

Uncle Buck.

We saw this at a makeshift drive in movie theater in a shopping mall parking lot.

I had forgotten how funny this movie is is. Unemployed slacker, uncle Buck (John Candy), takes care of three children during a family emergency.

The Old Guard on Netflix.

Charlize Theron as one of a group of centuries old undying mercenaries. Apparently based upon a graphic novel I am unfamiliar with.

I watched because it was mentioned in several newspapers. I enjoyed it. They seem to set it up for sequels in future.
The writeups mention that Theron and KiKi Layne did much(all?) of the fight scenes themselves. It's a bloody movie. At one point I asked myself how many people they'd killed. In that regard I thought of the John Wick movies with the massive body counts. The Old Guard is better than the Wick movies.

Without giving too much away, the evil pharma company and it's founder are named Merrick. I wonder how US based Merck & Co. likes that similarity?

I think I've seen all of Ms. Theron's movies over many years. I still don't recognize her if I don't know it's her.

My wife and I watched Greyhound on Apple TV +. Tom Hanks movie about WW II. "Early in World War II, an inexperienced U.S. Navy captain must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolfpacks." Was supposed to be released to theaters, but Apple bought the rights and put it on Apple TV +. Was a good movie, just the right length. Made the journey across the Atlantic relatable for what was going on in WW II.

Bad Boys for Life: was a big fan of the original movie (and thought the 2nd was decent), and big Will Smith fan too. I was disappointing, but not exactly surprised. Still worth the 2 hour investment

The Way Back w/ Ben Affleck: Thought it was good, different type of sports/ drama movie then the typical ones out there

Ford Vs. Ferrari: Thought it was one of the better movies I've seen in a long time. I'm a semi racing fan, and thought both Damon and Bale did a great job. Its not really a movie you watch more then once, but I have an urge to watch it again.

We added Apple TV a few months ago, and thinking of checking this out. Thanks for the review.

Last night, watched on Netflix "Freedom Writer", the 2007 Hilary Swank movie based on the true story of teacher Erin Gruwell, and her approach to teaching a group of students most in the system had given up on. Her principal and the union rules come off pretty bad. It also didn't help that the bad gal principal was played by Imelda Staunton, who also played the wicked new headmistress Delores Umbridge in the Harry Potter films.

Other than that, an enjoyable and inspiring film.

This movie is at best, a cheap knock-off of Deliverance in a Cajun setting. I did not like it back in 1981 and my second viewing was no better.

And as I am reminded frequently by my DW, it was a poor choice for a date movie.

Tower Records; Dying Laughing; Gilbert Gottfried; The Bill Murray Experience; Cassette; Misery Loves Comedy; Back In Time [about the making of Back to the Future and also its fanbase].
(All on Peacock; these are documentaries[non-fiction]; I think some are on Amazon Prime Video too and maybe elsewhere.)
I watch very few movies, but these were all really good IMHO. These are all from the last 5 years or so. Check 'em out. They are all pretty smart and heartfelt and engrossing I thought. And pretty emotional too.

The Last September

In Northern Ireland(circa 1920) an Anglo-Irish family and
acquaintances are caught in the middle of the Irish/British
conflict in the aftermath of the 1916 uprising.
Nice period piece in terms of setting and costumes and stylistic
cinematography but the story is a little weak and uneven.
Not bad but not great. 6/10

Watched "Amadeus" from Netflix on blu ray. I had watched this years ago but didn't recall most of it other than the infamous fart scene. Really enjoyed the second watch although it's a long movie so we split it over two evenings. Really great acting!

A Most Beautiful Thing. Right now it is streaming free on Xfinity. It's about the first all Black high school rowing team in Chicago. It's not happily ever after, more real to life, yet heartwarming, and a timely, thought-provoking documentary.

Thanks for posting this. I'm watching it now. I remember this happening as it dominated local news at the time. The backstories of the main "character" and others in this mountain town are interesting.

“Tread” on Netflix. 90 minute documentary about a man dealing with his perceived enemies in a small Colorado town. I won’t say any more for those who don’t know the story yet. Well done.
Thanks for posting this. I'm watching it now. I remember this happening as it dominated local news at the time. The backstories of the main "character" and others in this mountain town are interesting.
I just finished watching this about 30 minutes ago. Good documentary. For some reason I don't remember this story at all, but it's a sad story.

Just watched Greyhound(new Tom Hanks WWII movie) on Apple TV. I enjoyed it.

Now since I have a year free of Apple TV due to activating a new Verizon phone, I have to figure out the Apple TV App. I had to watch it on my iPad vs casting to my TV because the narration and accessibility options on my Vizio TV would not shut up. "Ernie looks at water" "water is gray and rolling" "glass breaking sound" arrrrghh
