Not to be confused with any Italian dramatic films with entirely coincidentally similar names.

I have not seen it but reading reviews, sounds like the new Han Solo movie will be typical lightly enjoyable entertainment. It's always weird to see someone else's face associated with such an iconic character tho. Doesn't matter how good the replacement is at nailing the role, it's still weird.

 

I also watched The Clapper via Amazon or Netflix, I forget which. I found it to be an odd movie in the sense that the main character is kind of unlikable, but the film as a whole has this low-key-charm so I kept watching. Plus the cameos of famous to meme-famous (the Shamwow guy made me lol) people was fitfully amusing. But by 3/4 of the way through I'd sort of had it with the main character and began to tune out.

I watched The Clapper as well. Tracey Morgan was really the main reason I finished it.

Saw The Greatest Showman. Shallow but watchable because it has a feeling of positivity. I liked it mostly, but all the songs sound like they were written and mixed by Owl City (google told me they weren't) so your enjoyment will vary based on that most likely.

Went to Deadpool 2 last night. Very funny, lots of laugh out loud moments, especially with his irreverent finger pointing at other movies, especially X Men.

Oh, yeah watch till halfway through the credits! :)

Deadpool 2 is the best family movie I've seen since "It's a Wonderful Life".
X-Force is the greatest superhero team ever portrayed on screen.

The tie in to the MCU is also very cool and explains why Deadpool will be in Avengers 4 and how he will be crucial to the plan to revert what Thanos done.

Queen biopic trailer. Much like Queen's music, this looks like a lot of style over substance, but unlike Queen's music, it doesn't look like particularly fun style over substance.

Rumours seem to indicate that the new Obi-Wan Star Wars movie is going to be a bit of a re-telling of the Seven Samurai.

Went to The Quiet Place. Started off great, then took a big dunk in the stupid bucket. There's s not enough water in The Dead Sea to suspend the disbelief in this.

There are so many stupid plot holes that's I'd have to spoil the whole movie to mention them.

The deaf girl is really good. That's all I can say that's positive about the film.

Given that Star Wars drew so much from Hidden Fortress, this sounds like a pretty good starting point for an Kenobi film.

Wow. Hard to imagine they have anything left after that trailer. Rotten cotton. :p

I'll confess, the trailer really dropped my interest in it.

Deadpool 2 was great. Definitely managed to hit the bar the original set. Full Winnie the Pooh.

Heh, it was some seriously cheesy, joyful fun. Dang, now I want to dig out the dvd and re-watch it...

 

 

AVClub - The Phantom paid tongue in cheek homage to old timey do-gooders but never got its due

That 2nd Jack Reacher movie was "free" on Amazon Prime so we watched that while eating pizza.

The first film was a lot better, imo. This sequel was ok, but I didn't like the "maybe daughter" subplot which just felt like boring time-filler. You could have excised that entire subplot/character from the film and never notice anything missing.

Winchester. Terrible. Even as someone who thinks gun culture in America is out of control I still don't want my haunted house movies to be heavy handed rants on gun control.

Deadpool 2 is awesome, although not quite as awesome as the first. Better plotting would have been nice.
