Still trying to figure out the ending.
Great performance by Aaron Eckhart.

From a thriller (That what I was expecting…)
to a creepy horror movie.

“Thriller” and especially “Horror” are the two descriptions about the movie you’ll find all over the net. If it’s horror, it might get creepy somewhere. So I didn’t post any real spoiler… no more than you can find by just reading the info/plot about Hunter Hunter. But I got your point. Will be more careful in the future when writing comments.

Not in the reboot. Or should I say, the reboat.

sp5it, thanks for the Feynman clip.

we enjoy physics although we do not
understand most of the quantum explanations.
Feynman makes it easier to figure out what is going on.

after reading about him, he would not have
survived the Me Too movement in academia.

I saw Nobody (2021).

[One of my favorite movies of all time.]

This is one of the best action flicks I've ever seen.

I actually forgot it was an action film, so when it started I thought it was just a drama.

I've never seen Bob Odenkirk in a dramatic role, or as an action star.

I've always known him as a comedian.

He is an excellent dramatic actor, and a superb action star.

Christopher Lloyd also is a bit of an action star in this film as well.

This movie reminds me of Spiral with Chris Rock because Chris Rock isn't known to be a dramatic actor or action movie guy either.

This movie reminds me of the John Wick movies because John Wick killed a ton of Russian bad guys in that film series as well.

This movie reminds me of Payback with Mel Gibson, another action movie that I love.

Nobody could have been more of a film noir movie if the visuals would have been darker like in Payback.

This movie has great acting from everyone, and excellent music to boot.

Although this movie was released in 2021, it was filmed before the pandemic, and it shows.

What a great action movie.

I really hope they make a sequel.

One Cut of the Dead (2017)
(Japanese audio with English subs)

It’s a comedy about the making of a 30 minute zombie movie live and in one cut for television. It had some pretty funny moments but fell a little short for me. I don’t think I’ll be watching any more comedies that I need to read subtitles for. It definitely mars the experience for me. I think comedy is something best experienced in a language you know.

This movie struck me as a John Wick cash-in. I’m not against that necessarily if it means we get more movies with great action choreography and cool world-building. But this movie doesn’t have the same world-building and something about the violence in this one just felt….mean, for lack of a better word. I didn’t think “wow cool” like I did for most of the John Wick action.

I also didn’t really like the main character because he seemed like a violence-obsessed douchebag who was meant to personify “toxic masculinity”. Maybe I’m not supposed to like him, idk. It did seem like this movie was halfheartedly trying to deconstruct what makes us enjoy movies like John Wick. I didn’t appreciate that because it seemed like the movie makers were trying to wash their hands of the movie while they were making it.

I saw Zack Snyder's Justice League (2021).

As far as I can tell, this is the director's cut of Justice League (2017).

The 2021 movie is 4 hours and 2 minutes, while the 2017 film is 2 hours even.

I never saw the 2017 version, but it has a much lower score on IMDb, so that's probably for the best.

The 2021 movie is good, but not great.

The acting is decent for a superhero movie, and the music is pretty good.

It is the longest movie I have ever seen.

The movie is a bit slow in places, but I wouldn't call it boring.

The movie is good for a DC movie, but isn't that great compared to the average Marvel film.

One weird thing is that that movie is full screen.

I much prefer wide screen, and almost all new TVs and monitors are wide screen, so I am not alone.

It's weird (and distracting) to watch a full screen movie released in 2021.

Anyway, if you like superhero movies, this one is good.

Wait, you mean like 4:3 ratio from back in the day of CRT TVs?!

If so, that is utterly bizarre.

Edit: Looked it up. Apparently he was trying to stay as close to the IMAX ratio as possible while shooting on 35mm film.

Yes, 4:3 ratio is also known as full screen.

Yea Snyder’s explanation for the 4:3 ratio is BS though. He said it was planned that way from the beginning. If you compare scenes from the two movies you can clearly see that the Snyder Cut was cropped for a lot of scenes. Visual information was lost.

The Snyder Cut was 100x better than the 2017 cut in terms of plot and action. The sequel-bait ending ruined the experience for me somewhat. Let me enjoy the happy ending Snyder! Spiderman Far From Home did the same thing in it’s after-credits scene. That shit pisses me off.

If I buy the Snyder Cut on Blu-ray, every time I watch it I’m gonna turn it off before that stupid post-apocalyptic ending trailer.

Conan the Barbarian (2011)

Eye-candy sets, costumes, and actors. Some decent action. Pretty mediocre plot. Acting is a mixed bag. I own this on 4k just for the eye candy.

Conan abandons the love-interest at the end. This is really shitty and unrealistic. It was shitty because he probably got her pregnant and then just left. It’s unrealistic because no man in their right mind would abandon 2011 Rachel Nichols!

That might be controversial—seems the ladies love Jason Mamoa. Silly

Just for the record, I do own both of the original Conan movies. I know what’s best in life!

Double header this past weekend:

Beckett on Friday and A Quiet Place 2 on Saturday.

IMO, one can skip Beckett, but if you saw AQP, then watch AQP2, however it wasn’t as good.

I saw Slaughterhouse-Five (1972).

I read the book twice in the 1990's.

It's one of the best books I have ever read, and the only book I have read twice.

The movie, on the other hand, is terrible.

The acting is decent, and the music okay.

The problem is that the movie is slow, and not entertaining.

What a waste.

Doctor Strange (2016)

Re-watched this last night. I kept noticing that a recurring part of the soundtrack sounded like the Star Trek theme with some tweaking. Sure enough, Michael Giacchino did the score for both movies. It’s a bit distracting because I like the Star Trek (2009) theme and the starting and stopping was giving me the musical equivalent of blue balls.

Still, Doctor Strange is not a bad Marvel movie. The acting is stellar and the casting is good. Not much complexity in the plot or character motivations but it has enough spectacle to make up for it if you are in the mood.

100% agree about the Zack Snyder Justice League. I wasn’t prepared for the whole 4:3 thing and I stopped it almost immediatly thinking I’d screwed up somehow and had the wrong version until I figured out it was on purpose. Since I’d seen the 2017 version, I noticed the scenes that were cropped and it just pissed me off, but otherwise it was 100% better…except for the length, but I’m not sure how it could’ve been shortened (maybe 30 mins or so..).

The ending “trailer” also threw me since I wasn’t prepared for it and I had to watch it twice before I figured out wtf was going on. What If… Silly (I gotta watch that too…)

I’m saving Quiet Place 2, Conjuring 2, Reminisence, Demonic, and a bunch of other movies up for vacation I’m going on starting tomorrow. Wife forbade me from watching anything she wanted to see until then Big Smile .

Will let you guys know…

raccoon city…i read it twice, too.
saw the movie twice, too.

S-5 was an easy book and movie
to follow for me, and i enjoyed both
as a straight time-travel type adventure,
however, i came to realize that PTSD
was the driving force behind most
of that adventure, not time-travel.

regardless, i do recommend the movie
as well as the book for those who do not
know about Vonnegut, Jr.

Predator (1987)

Classic sci-fi/action combo and quintessential Arnold movie. Think I’m gonna upgrade to the 4k trilogy. Yea that’s right TRILOGY. That abomination from 2018 doesn’t deserve space on my self.

I saw The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021).

It's pretty good.

It's about as good as the other two Conjuring movies.

The acting is very good for a horror film.

The music is great.

The movie is not boring.

I liked it.

Predators (2010)

I enjoy this movie. I’m not sure what the general consensus is among the hardcore Predator fans but for me this is a very enjoyable action movie. My only real criticism is that there could have been more resolution at the end. And the next movie should have picked up where this one left off.

I think I saw one of these movies and liked it. I should really get caught up.

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard.
Brainless plot and constant action. What more do you need other than a bowl of popcorn?!
A good time was had by all.
If you are offended by “blue” language. Run away.
Possibly the highest cuss word count movie of all time.
All th Best,

According to IMDb, 127 uses of the f-word.

That's a lot, but I've seen movies that top that.

The White Disease.
review quote:
Made in 1937 and based off a play, The White Disease (or Skeleton on Horseback, which I personally prefer)
is doubly morbid, featuring both a fascist leadership whipping up a pro-war sentimentality and a pandemic
which originated in China (it’s also given a Chinese name). Yeah, you read right.
The White Disease is basically a pandemic film hardly anyone’s heard of or seen.
