    Midway (2019) - 10/10

    Yes, for real. I loved it and there is not much I would change.
    It's more of an action movie and not much time is really spent on character development at all.
    This I actually didn't mind so much.
    Acting was good and the CGI was actually pretty convincing, especially during the flight scenes.
    Some complained about the dialogue, but I felt it was fine.

    This is really nothing like "Pearl Harbor" IMO and felt more like an old 1940s WWII movie.
    A lot of it reminded me of a mix between parts of Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Ike: Countdown to D-Day and Tora, Tora Tora.
    Really not much from the original "Midway".
    They did recreate a lot of scenes of actual battle footage (crashes on the carriers etc).

    Critics seemed to hate this and I just don't know what they were expecting.
    I haven't read a ton of books about the battle of Midway, but this seemed pretty accurate to me.

    Probably Roland Emmerich's best movie.
    Well I have to admit i'm a fan of his movies. Yet strangely two of his films are some of the worst movies i've ever seen (10,000BC and Godzilla).

    BTW I tried to see this on Saturday, but only 2 front seats were left. I skipped it and went today at 9:45pm.
    Glad I did. Not many people there and I got a really good spot.

    Peanut Butter Falcon - 9/10

    Easily the most fun/entertaining movie i've seen this year. Pretty funny too.
    Zak was just as funny as Shia and had some of the best lines in the movie.
    It was so good I just didn't want it to end. Wish it was 4 hours long or they had a sequel or TV series.
    PS Shia LaBeouf has always been a good actor to me ever since I saw him in "Holes".
    It's actually hard to believe this is really him. He will get an oscar in the next 5 years :)
    I think this is also one i'm going to go out and buy on blu-ray. I rarely do that these days.

    If you can, watch this before you see the trailer. The trailer gives away too many good parts.

    Kind of wish I saw this instead of LeMans 66.

    Not really though because there is some nice moving photos of these awesome creations but everything is so silly about that movie. I don´t even know what kind of character Bale is trying to create with his overacting. Matt Damon is hard to judge he is always just the normal easy liked character but maybe that is challenging. The sillyness starts instantly with the at 7000 rpm... Not to mention the desperate attempt to try to make Ford the underdogs. They knew it wouldn´t work so there would be squabble within the minibosses. Movie is full of really silly bickering but it was needed I suppose to try to get any kind of underdog story going for that economically doped to the max project.

    But it was kind of pleasant anyway the racing scenes was really nicely shot but it would fall flat on smaller screens I imagine.

    Godzilla is a great movie btw. 10000 BC not so much.

    Jour De Fete - 10/10 (The Big Day)

    This was the first film by Jacques Tati and I found it to be one of his funniest by far.
    Right now I have only one more film of his to watch (Parade). Hopefully someday I can get his box set with every Blu-Ray.
    PS this was by far the funniest film i've seen all year. I haven't laughed so hard at something in about forever.
    I really need to watch more comedies. I really seem to watch way too many war movies or things that are depressing!
    You can tell that many actors or directors were probably inspired by this film and borrowed some ideas.
    For example, the bicycle race scene from "Pee Wee's Big Adventure".

    BTW I think these are my favorites by the director in order:

    1) Mon Oncle
    2) Jour De Fete
    3) Trafic
    4) Mr. Hulot's Holiday
    5) Playtime

    Probably now one of my favorite directors right behind Hirokazu Koreeda.
    Hard to believe I only finally started watching his films less than a year ago!

    Also, heard there is a color version of this movie available and it's NOT done with a computer.
    Surprised the Amazon rental is in black and white.

    El Camino - (7/10)

    Superb acting (as with all Breaking Bads) and cinematography, but other than that, not much of a story. It's nice to get tiny bit more of Breaking Bad, but it's not all that substantial. I went through and got to the ending, and I was like, that's it?

    In terms of visual direction, very good. I don't know who is in charge of the visuals, but they are very good at it. Cinematography is stunning. 4K HDR is stunning to look at for this one (give points for that). Now I'm interested in re-watching Breaking Bad series if they were all filmed in 4K HDR.

    Lion King - cgi version 2019 - (6/10)

    They just cgi'd the original animation. The way animals were portrey'd in cgi looked technically impressive, but it wasn't as effective as the 2d hand drawn animation of the original. Also, they didn't go into a more original direction, they just re-animated the original screenplay. What's the point? Anyway, not all that big on the original Disney cartoons to begin with. I find Hayao Miyazaki's cartoons more interesting.

    "10 Minutes Gone" : 3/10



    Following a bank robbery that goes wrong, a man loses 10 minutes of his memory.

    A "B" movie without interest, the action not always well orchestrated, approximations in the scenario.

    Midway 10/10. Not sure what to complain about. Yes it´s hollywood but subdued to very tolerable levels. Action scenes are superbly done.

    Parasite 9/10. I'm probably late to the party on this one but it was an amazing flick. I hated the protagonists and "villains" almost equally.
    Great acting and a rather unique experience, bravo.

    Dolemite is my name- 8/10

    Super entertaining look at the backstory of a classic Blaxploitation film.

    Silence of the Lambs - 7/10

    Probably haven't seen this one since 2000 or so.
    I really don't see what's so great about this film.
    Sure it's well made and has good acting, but it's kind of really dull to me and not very interesting.
    Not very thrilling at all to me either, even the last scene.
    The best part though was the escape sequence.
    I'm also surprised that this is considered by some to be a horror film!

    PS somehow I was actually expecting this to be a lot more disturbing and graphic. It's really not.
    Something like "Seven" was way worse! I seriously cannot watch movies like that.

    Jack Ryan: Season 2 - 7/10

    Season 1 was really good so I just had to watch this.
    It's not bad, but nowhere near as good as the first. I think I gave that a 9/10. When I saw it I was just surprised how good it was.
    This seems to be at it's best during the action sequences.
    This show would be nowhere near as good without Wendell Pierce and John Krasinski.
    The acting from everyone is actually above average except for that of 1 or 2 actors in smaller roles.
    Main negative is there is way too many political and family scenes that are not too important to the story.

    21 Bridges. 10/10!
    This could have been called Grand Theft Auto: the Movie. If you've played the game, you'll probably love this flick. Fast and intense, starts getting heavy around the seven minute mark and doesn't really let up. The trailer does NOT do it justice.

    I wonder why critics thinks it's so great? I thought it was fun to watch like other Bong Joon Ho films, but nothing groundbreaking IMO. I've head people say film of the year, etc.. There are Korean films I liked better. What I like about BJH's films are, they have interesting stories you can get immersed, and they are unique, not the typical cliche Hollywood crap. I like the stories in his films.
