Is the Mr. Rogers movie good? I think I need to tone down my misanthropy so I should probably see it in the theatre.
I think the last thing I saw in the theatre was Terminator Dark Fate and I had to try really hard to remember it afterwards.
Maybe it was that harsh tasting killer weed from the dispensary next to the place that sells Hell's Angels support wear... hmmmmmm
Nah I've felt this way a long time and haven't always had the weed, it's definitely that I'm jaded by media saturation. I get particularly bored with with fight and stunt scenes pieced together with cg and flashy editing. I am totally engaged by genuine feats of acrobatics, martial arts, horse riding or motorcycle stunts still.

I pirate a lot, which I'm ok with because a lot of what I watch I would be pissed off at having paid for, I feel like I've seen every variation of story over and over already.

Rambo Last Blood? Sorry, nothing novel here, I've already seen Home Alone.

Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood was wonderful!!! No spoilers but I'm spoiler tagging my take just in case you haven't watched ALL of the trailers and promotional clips, only after which do you really get an idea of what the movie really is.

Scales with readouts you can arbitrarily change with a remote... gotta love late stage capitalism, everyone turning the screws on each other.

We're digressing from movies here but does anyone else feel like every interaction with a monopolistic entity and every white collar interaction you have lately is an endless series of gouges, double billings, whoopsie daisies with wrong totals always in their favour and the denial of insurance benefits and such? 

Stay alert friends, any appearance of weakness or stupidity makes you a target for sociopaths. Appear vulnerable while actually being alert and the weasels will expose themselves.

No spoilers: The most impactful scene was when Mr. Rogers was on the phone with the interviewer and said he had all of his attention. That was a teaching moment for me. I love that scene! I've been putting my phone away when hanging out with friends. Thanks Mr. Rogers!

After watching the Movies That Made Us episode about it, and recalling a recent embarrassing Incident where it was revealed I had no idea who Patrick Swayze is, I decided to watch Dirty Dancing.

I guess I can see why it makes women and girls all wet. The part that got me weepy, though, is when the doctor/Baby's dad asks who is "responsible" for the girl suffering in the aftermath of the botched abortion and Johnny Castle steps up without hesitation even though he didn't get her pregnant, because she's his best friend.

I thought that same thing when I watched Ghost for the first time and saw Whoopi Goldberg.

A few days after that we also watched Ghostbusters, which I probably saw 50 times on HBO as a kid, but Weener hadn't.
I think the humor, fx and pretty much everything holds up, but Bill Murray's character is mega creepy and neggy in 2019.

You have to take it with a grain of salt. A shaker maybe.

 

Anyway, I think we're going to revisit Die Hard next.

 

I watched APOLLO 18 on my own, and well, that was ... about 2 hours.

IDK.

I actually wanted to like it, and I think it had something to offer--the trio who we spend the whole movie with were perfectly cast.

But a few things didn't work. 

If they hadn't decided to just grab some tropes like slow possession, and lazy "found footage" style, it would have shot past a basic horror flick.

Lean into the lying government, the 1970s low-tech era, the total isolation, and the inability of the guy in the capsule to do anything, and make the found footage style much tighter, it could have been something special--caught between The Shining and 2001.
