It's cold as hell here too.
it was 7 degrees this morning. car barely started. if the nor'easter turns inward thursday getting hit hard of snow. if not, 1-4 inches.
10 degrees this morning when I left the house, and Saturday is supposed to have a HIGH of 10, getting down to 1.
Hell isn't cold, but if it was, this weekend for three days will be -23 celcius.
ugh-another remake coming of a movie classic. somehow ben affleck is remaking witness for the prosecution in 2019. you can't top charles laughton in that movie.
THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US. Same old mountain crash on a survivor story until the end. Not a big shocker, but not terrible movie. More of a chick flick.
DETROIT- I love at the end it says "not all witnesses or evidence was found or used to make this movie." so it's half bullshit then? these cops were either the dumbest 3 guys on the planet or really that racist. either way - wow. crazy story and end results. I can't believe they weren't in jail for what they did.
ANOTHER re-make - Bruce Willis in Death Wish. C'mon.
it doesn't look that bad. haha.
DEN OF THIEVES. Solid movie with no real big movie stars in it. I liked it a lot. Could've been shorter in some areas, but the shootout scenes and cat and mouse reminded me of HEAT.
the big twist at the end wasn't that big of a twist. cool, but not shocking. a very solid movie overall.
The Post. Very good, and certainly hits DAMN close to home today.
3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - the Oscar front runner for Best Picture, Actress and Supporting Actor - wow not what I expected at all. Crazy, sad, funny and wacky of a movie. Really sad overall, but had many redeeming qualities. Awesome cast. I dislike Francis McDormand a lot and she will probably win her second Oscar for this. I'm dreading her speech of Me Too already. Sam Rockwell was excellent as well and looks to win his first Oscar for Best Supporting. He's always the second fiddle in many movies, but he's great in a lot of movies. He's the real child killer in the Green Mile too.
GET OUT - wow. Oscar noms for Best Picture, Director and Actor. Why? Why was this cheesy attempt at a horror flick nominated at all? Best Picture? Holy shit are they getting desperate to find good films. Best Actor? Are you kidding me ? 5 men get nominated and you pick this unknown actor for this lame film. Best Director? Oh, I get it-more diversity in the nominations. Holy shit this is awful. John Singleton for Boyz in the Hood - he deserved a nomination. Spike Lee - he deserved his nomination. Jordan Peele for this ? I'm baffled to why anyone besides MTV kids would vote for this movie for anything let alone a Golden Globe or SAG award. THis movie is not even a good horror movie. It's fluff. It's stupid and it just plain sucks. Best Picture? Best Actor? So this guy is the same quality performance as 3x winner Daniel Day-Lewis? Wow. This may go down as thee worst Best Picture nomination of all time ! The only part of the movie I like is his buddy Rodney. That's it. If it wasn't for him, this movie would be one of the worst I have ever seen in my life and I've seen a lot of bad movies.
MOLLY'S GAME - Not as good as everyone is saying and I know why it wasn't up for Best Picture. It's not that good. It's solid, but not Best Picture solid. It's better than GET OUT but so is everything else. Chastain was good, but not top 5 for Best Actress. Needed to show more poker. Some of it was hokey and very unbelievable.
The COmmuter-terribly stupid. 0 plot. 0 characters. 0 suspense. Neeson's plane movie was much better.
the Darkest Hour - ugh. Long, slow, boring and no action. the entire movie is Gary Oldman talking as Churchill. Oldman is excellent and will win his first Oscar in 3 weeks, but the movie is just too damn boring and slow.
I got dragged by an ex-girlfriend to see Fifty Shades Freed-omg. it's so bad, it's bad. so cheesy. so ridiculous I cannot believe these books were best sellers. wow. 90 min of my life I'd kill to have back.
