Finally caught Dave Chappelle’s “The Closer“.

Man, I never liked standup comedy, but Dave had me literally laffing out loud (rarely happens) quite often. He’s a hoot!

He funny!

I saw all of Chappelle's Show years ago when it first came out.

Now I'm watching his stand-up specials in chronological order.

It'll be a while before I get to "The Closer."

Dave Chappelle is one of the best at stand-up comedy.  :BEER:

Yeh, I got the complete set of CS, probably take a while for me to rewatch them.

Only problem is when I’d want to find a particular skit, like “Ribs” or “Ashy Larry”, like which season/episode it’d be in. The summary for each ep only has a partial listing. And forget trying to find a part of his stand-up between skits.

Saw Dune [2021] and I thought it was pretty good.

Some thoughts:

  • It felt a little long, but that’s only because it’s a 2hr 35min movie with no intermission to use the bathroom or buy concessions. They should really bring back the intermission! On the other hand, it was an EPIC watch on the big screen. Glad I went to the theater.

  • I recently watched Blade Runner [1982] and compared to that movie, Dune Part I is an action-packed thrill ride with a completely transparent plot. But even on its own merit I thought this movie’s pacing was pretty decent. The slower sections were not wasted and served to establish the world(s) and characters. One of the things that separates movies and TV shows is that in movies you actually get to see big chunks of the environment instead of having to imagine the larger world outside of the tiny sets.
  • Despite ending in the middle of the first book, I thought the stopping point actually felt fairly natural.
  • The sand worms are being teased like a horror movie monster. I guess we’ll probably see more of them in the sequel (hope they make it)
  • The world building/design was freaking INCREDIBLE in this movie. Absolutely gorgeous. Buying this on 4K Blu-ray for sure.
  • One thing was a bit weird—the term “Sand Power” was uttered several times in the movie. Apparently in the book this is used in contrast with Air Power and Water Power when referring to tactical military might. In the movie this is subtly changed to mean the people of the desert as well. So when a main character sees a desert dweller doing something impressive and says “Sand Power!” and it felt a bit like saying “Black Power” or “White Power”. I don’t think it was intended that way but it definitely felt weird. I think it’s just an iconic phrase from the book they felt they couldn’t axe for some reason.
  • It’s SO NICE seeing a big Sci-Fi movie that isn’t Marvel or Star Wars. I want more of these.

The Night House.

1. hysterical horror, since it is mostly a female film.
2. worth watching, but not worth paying for.
3. Bag of Bones remake, essentially.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

I think this is a fun movie and I think the hate it gets is largely undeserved. I’d watch it over Genisys or Dark Fate for sure. And like the Matrix sequels, if you let go of what might of been it’s possible to enjoy what was actually delivered.

John Wick [2014] (rewatch)

Still great. That fight in the club is a masterpiece. Pretty grounded movie compared to the later installments. The only part I thought was downright silly was John Wick driving around in a car near the end and behaving like he was clearing a room when he looked out the window with his gun.

A Pigeon Sat On a Branch Reflecting On Existence (2014)

If you like your comedy dark and very dry, and you also have a philosophical or introspective nature, Roy Andersson’s film uses abstraction and surrealism combined with bleak realism to distill human frailty, folly, cruelty, and compassion into a concentrated elixir that leaves a strong aftertaste. The movie is pieced together in a unique string of small episodes, most of which combine comedy with tragedy or depravity from real everyday and historic events and are strewn together in a way that only makes sense somehow at the end of the movie when you consider the whole. Along the way you’ll see the worst and the best of which humanity is capable, and you’ll also witness things you’ve definitely never seen before, such as Swedish soldiers circa the 1780’s walking into a current-day bar and finding that the bathroom Sweden’s King needs to use is occupied. Like I said, it’s unique, and a real work of art.

Halloween Kills

Absolute total waste of effort, money and film stock.

I’ll never get those 2 hours of my life back.

The Final Duel (2021)

The film is very well made just as you would expect from a Ridley Scott film. The acting is good. The story is pretty gripping. The overall structure of showing events from the perspective of multiple characters was great even if some scenes are hard to watch (rape).

I guess my biggest gripe is that this film is called “The Final Duel” and I expected dueling to be a main narrative focus. To me, the title implies that the film is about the final duel—the details of what took place and why it was the final legal duel in France. Instead, the movie seems completely focused on the social norms and legal standing of women in medieval times. There’s almost no focus on the concept of duels. In fact, the duel in this film seemed somewhat justified.

So yea, I think this film was marketed in a slightly dishonest way to get people into seats. I wouldn’t have bothered to go to the theater to see a film about misogyny and sexism in medieval times. I could have waited to borrow it from the library. And even then, it’s a forgone conclusion that women were treated like shit back then. Why do I need to see a movie about it?

Okay, this movie isn't out yet, but I plan to watch the Resident Evil reboot.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6920084/

I saw the name of the movie at the end of a commercial on TV, and I thought, "It must take place in 1998."

I looked it up, and of course it does.

It has a different director than the other live-action movies, so I hope it's at least decent.  :THUMBS-UP:

Well, you have to watch it right? Anything else would be illegal! Big Smile

But in all seriousness, I wouldn’t expect too much. It’s written and directed by a guy with no notable movies on his record. I’ve only heard of one and that one has a 5/10 on IMDB. Maybe he’ll really give it his all and surprise us. I have to say that their race-swapping of Leon doesn’t inspire much confidence for me personally. It tells me they are more worried about being seen as progressive than making an accurate adaption of the games. Leon is a character with an established look so “best actor for the job” arguments don’t apply; a game-accurate casting call would have tried to match the original character as much as possible. Seems like Hollywood is intent on making movies about video games for people who don’t play video games. Facepalm

I saw 47 Meters Down (2017).

This movie is good.

The acting is great for a horror film.

The music is pretty good.

Parts of the film are quite intense, and the movie is entertaining.

Ready or Not.
Mrs. Jeff and I watched it last night.
What a hoot. Good acting. Silly plot – but who cares?
Get out the popcorn and sit back.
All the best,
Jeff

Life In Color (2015)

Excellent romantic comedy about two people who meet when one of them inadvertently gets the other fired from their job. The writing and acting stand out in this darkly-comical drama in which two people help each other overcome the past traumas and frustrations in their lives and inspire each other to reach for a better life and the happiness that has eluded them.

I saw 47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019).

This movie is good.

It's almost as good as the first movie.

The acting is average.

The music is pretty good.

This film is intense and entertaining, though the first movie is more intense and entertaining.

The sharks in this movie are more impressive looking than in part one.

Watched Dune (2021) and was impressed with the visuals. Maybe the fact that it is a 2 part film, they didn’t want to spoil all the sand worm glory in this go-around. Kinda reminds me of the Krayt Dragon from Mandalorian.
I did enjoy it overall except what I thought were minor quirks (which I won’t point out without spoiling the film for others).

I’ve got a thrower, a flooder, and an EDC too. Still looking for a bigger thrower, flooder, and a new EDC, give or take a few. I’m a flashaholic.

Finch (2021).

The new Tom Hanks post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie.

It was … not very good. It was extremely slow-paced, the main character was unlikeable, and there were a couple major plot holes. I was surprised. An actual bad Tom Hanks movie. I didn’t think there was such a thing.
