Just watched Avengers Endgame (2nd time) at home with pizza and cans of beer
Lone Wolf McQuad - And un-ironically, objectively good Chuck Norris movie with a fantastic soundtrack mimicking Once Upon A Time In The West? Yes please.
Neat as well when they have the final duel at the end instead of drawing guns they put them away. It's like Goerge Lucas ring theory but moar deep.
So movie night with my parents yesterday and we watched The Upside, a relatively serious dramedy with Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston and it was pretty decent. Out of the five of us I think I found it to be the best, but at the same time nothing out of this world. I had no idea that Kevin Hart did any serious roles or was even looking to do so that that came as kind of a shock, but I liked it pretty well overall.
Apparently the movie is a remake of a french movie though and I've heard those who have seen the original prefer it to this by a fair margin so consider that as well.
Chuck Norris VS Communism - Really interesting movie about how people living highly restricted lives in Romanian became influenced and inspired by American movies like Rocky, Once Upon A Time In America, Bloosport and a whole host of stuff.
They really loved that scene in Lone Wolf McQuad where he used beer like spinach to come back to life like Jesus and exploded his Ram Charger out the ground like it was an extension of his penis.
They took it very seriously like it was a gritty documentary, which was pretty charming.
Midsommar, by the guy who did Hereditary. Both were excellent films, and clearly by the same person. I have the same comments about both films, which is they are great, but the first two of the three acts of each were stronger than the last. It's not that the last acts of these films were below quality, but the first two acts of each were -extremely- strong while the last portions of each were just "good".
Avengers Endgame 6/10
First time watched it at cinema. Never again. Everytime a character appeared the whole audience whooped, cheered and started clapping really loudly. Couldn't tell what was being said in the film. I mean cheering EVERY TIME characters appear on the screen is this necessary..??
@SOedipus: are you watching the directors cut or the theatrical version?
I'm watching the Assembly Cut. Not sure if that means Director's Cut. I don't think it would since the director wasn't involved in it. But yeah, not the theatrical version.
Saw Scary Stories To Tell In the Dark. 7/10
I read the books as a kid so was excited to see those stories come to life on the big screen. Overall it was scary even being rated PG-13, I loved effects for The Big Toe, Harold, and Me Tie Dough-ty Walker as they were both a mixture of CG and particle effects.
Stumbled across one of my childhood favorites on Amazon last night.
Young Ethan Hawke, young River Phoenix and young kid nobody ever heard of turn a Tilt a Whirl ride car into a space ship with help from a computer generated force field. Some of the effects are hokey now but the movie holds up decent overall.
Uhhh I rarely watch movies so iirc the last movie I saw was Shin Godzilla, watched it like a month ago. It was pretty good, I like how different it was from Hollywood movies about Godzilla and I think now I understand that he is much more culturally important for the Japanese and there is more to Godzilla than "KING OF TEH MONSTERS RAWR SMASH!!"
