Watched Collateral Beauty last night. Man that was just strange. I thought it was a serious movie at first but they kept having lots of funny comedic bits in weird places. It got to where I asked my wife and she said, "What's funny about it so far?" which made me wonder what's up with my humor.

I called the last twist almost immediately when I saw it but the first one I didn't see coming until a few seconds before it happened. And holy cow...I just checked Wikipedia because I was going to complain about the one person being so much younger than Will Smith but she's only 8 years younger. She looks like she could be early 30s, that's amazing.

The tech of removing a person from a scene like they did was just a little far-fetched, especially the one on the subway.

Will Smith and Michael Peña were the standouts in the film. Kiera Knightly did the Kiera thing of being mad every time she talked, I don't know what Kate Winslet was doing most of the time other than looking lost, and Ed Norton really seemed like he was in a different movie at times. Come to think of it, it was mostly the scenes that he was in that felt like they were supposed to be funny. He just seemed too earnest, I guess.

Alpha. Pretty good. Kinda ran out of steam about half way, but it was a quaint little movie. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting. I have no doubt it will bomb.

Saw trailers for Mortal Engines, Bumblebee, and Alita. Maybe I'm just in a good mood, but perhaps Hollywood will stop releasing a steady stream of diarrhea in the near future. At least they were creative visually.

Mortal Engines and Alita look unwatchable

They look better than Ready Player One.

I'm just trying to meet Hollywood half way here.


A movie that isn't superheroes or The Rock? You have my curiosity.

A movie about giant mobile cities that eat other cities? Now you have my attention.

How delightfully absurd.

And the transformers actually look like robots in this one! Not just random bits of scrap metal. I know it's a fool's hope, but maybe someone put some actual effort into this movie.

I just started watching The Game. Directed by David Fincher and has Michael Douglas and Sean Penn. How have I never heard of this?

Pretty strange so far.

You're not wrong.

So, The Game turned out to be pretty meh. I liked what I thought was the ending, until they reversed it again.

Now I'm watching Shaun of the Dead for the first time.

Absurd def is a word I'd use there. I bet the books are better just because it's easier to imagine something absurd like that than for someone to make it hard and fast on the screen.

I’m a big fan of Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, and Patriots Day, but Mile 22 was almost aggressively forgettable.

Other than Friday Night Lights I've hated every Peter Berg movie I've seen. Hacky bro shit.

I really like Berg. He is very genuine and a very visual creator.

I watched The Pagemaster last night. Never seen it before. Really enjoyed it; there’s some beautiful artwork in the animation section, particularly in the Mr. Hyde and Moby Dick sequences.

The Paddington movies aren't bad at all for kid's films, especially the first one.

Just make sure you watch The Shape of Water after Paddington 2.

I thought the first half was really good and then it turned out just merely ok.
