I do the same thing with my wife. I have had it before, but then I force myself to forget it so I can experience it new every time;)
I was a big Lance Armstrong fan. I supported him until the bitter end. It was a good documentary, but for me it was heartbreaking. After following the story, considering the evidence, and after viewing this film, I don't see any room for doubt about his denials concerning the allegations against him, that's for sure.

Black Mountain Side. (2014) 7/10
Continuing on in my quest for 10 bucks and a bag of Fritos budgeted decent films. We abandoned Dark Web as should have Danny Glover (who it seems will do any film now for that above mentioned bag of Fritos) when the hunter has a recurve bow strung backwards. This is how NOT to make and undertalented and overused plotline film. Better eye candy than the last mess but not enough to endure the agony. One wishes they could get out of the audience to exchange position with one of the films victims and achieve the early death this production so richly deserved.
So on then to BMS with absolutely no expectation whatsoever other than scenes of snow. Good thing too, as this is not Carptenters the Thing, but rather an Indian site excavation character play that succeeds once again by not over reaching it's budget or talent. Sure the gore is mediocre and the concept done to death, but there is enough in here to keep your eye on the screen and your brain wondering just what is actually going on here. For no reasons that I am conscious of it does remind me of The Thing and The Keep. That said I would not say fans of either should rush out to see this. Rather fans of the low buck genre looking for a potential up and coming directors first efforts. The same way that Following was a tip of for Nolans future works. I think this guy could shine on in the horror or suspense genres given enough rope.
Deadpool (2016): 7/10
If I had seen this before Guardians of the Galaxy I would instead have rated this an 8 and that a 7. Truth is, they're both good and for kind of the same reasons, though Deadpool takes a decidedly less family-friendly approach. The problem is that neither are quite as funny or as subversive as they think they are, at least not when you strip them down to their core concerns. Of the two, Guardians is the one that reeks of corporate muckery the most, but at least it doesn't think it can make up for it by constantly winking at the audience. Whatever its problems, Deadpool is undeniably an entertaining movie, just as most superhero flicks are. I was just waiting for it to take things further the entire time, and it never quite stepped up to the plate. Though it certainly nudged it a few times. If there's a next-time, I hope they aren't afraid to take it off the deep end.
Spotlight ( 2015) 8/10
It is comparable with another Oscar nominee The Big Short. Both are social righteous dramas based on real events. Pathos of both films didn't work for me but I prefer Spotlight because of actors' team performance. Michael Keaton stood out though.
