    Blade Runner has been my favorite movie for a long time, 2049 goes right up there with it.  Pretty much those two movies combine to make my favorite now.  Just incredible looking, sounding, well acted, and the story was fantastic.

    Thor: Ragnarok was a fun movie.  Great cameo at the beginning of the picture.

    I saw Get Out and thought it was great. Social commentary aspect may be a bit overplayed surrounding it, but it was the dark humor I enjoyed. Very well done.

    Way late to seeing this, like wait for HBO to show it late, but it was really good.

    Any word on Death of Stalin?

    Trailer makes it look hilarious, but you never know.

    Really glad they changed the original ending of Get Out. The original ending was a regular cop pulling up and arresting the black guy as a statement on America circa now while the evil white chick walks away. But after test audiences hated it they made it a “feel good” ending which made the movie definitely work better.

    What the fuck is that mess Justice League supposed to be?  Looks like the Battle for Helms Deep with Batman instead of Aragon.

    Justice League was good. I mean, there’s a lame CGI villain and a stupid McGuffin, but other than that, it’s kinda fun.

    And? Is it actually decent, or did I just have super low expectations?

    Saw Pixar’s new one Coco. Cool looking. More emotional than funny. With all of the Day of the Dead skeletons, it’d be too scary for my easily scared six year old. A good time, though. It’s preceded by a 20 minute Frozen short that I didn’t mind but many have found insipid.

    Flipping around and ended up watching Split with Jimmy McAvoy.  Didn’t know it was a M Knight Shamalamadingdong vehicle but remained strapped in, got a laugh out of Betty Buckley getting prominent work.  Movie was decent enough, but that ending was a mindblower.

    Right? Its really weird that she plays the shrink. Like you’re not going to get Overrated Meryl Streep I guess, but surely there’s someone else better than the mom from Eight is Enough.

    I remembered Buckley took the place of the original wife, who ended up dying after 4 episodes, so they just had the dad marry someone else.  Was confirming whether or not they just didn’t address the dead actress and found this gem:

    Grant Goodeve (Mark Hamill in the series pilot) — David Bradford (22 years old at start of series)

    Granted I was 7 at the time but zero recollection of anything with Mark Hamill except for Star Wars, Corvette Summer and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

    Hamill sought to get out of his contract on Eight Is Enough to take the opportunity to star in George Lucas’ Star Wars. His request was rejected by Lorimar Productions as he had signed a five-year contract with them. However, in December 1976 Hamill had been involved in a car crash that resulted in his needing reconstructive facial surgery. By the time ABC had greenlit the series, Hamill was still hospitalized and unavailable. They let him out of his contract and the role was re-cast with Grant Goodeve now playing David for the series.

    And the actress who died was in a May-December romance with Travolta at the time she checked out. It emotionally ruined him for quite a while.

    I watched split half-assed-ly, what was considered the big twist at the end? That he got away? Worked at the zoo?

    No, someone at work said they were connected though? Was that the Bruce Willis thing?

    Yeah, the ending of that movie ties directly into his character from Unreakable.  3rd movie called Glass is coming out to tie things up

    Lazy Bruce Willis knows he’s unbreakable and he’s still working his shitty security job 15 years later?

    Sounds like they just wrapped production but it isn’t set for release until January 2019.

    Jeez Split did really fucking well.  $278 million worldwide on a $9 million budget.

    Some film nerds were really jazzed about Split despite being wary due to M Night’s recent output.

    Makes me want even more to have the last Before Sunrise follow up have like a vampire movie break out in the middle of it. It’d be the longest con in film history.

    Just caught the “Ready Player One” Trailer. No D&D, Pac-man or Blade Runner references to be seen.  Looks like they are giving the the World War Z treatment and taking the name and then changing everything that made it unique and special. :ozzy:

    Saw the disaster artist last night, some unnecessary changes from the book to try and add in unneeded drama but as a whole it was great.

    But you have to see The Room first. Going to see that in a theater on the 10th.

    Screener time:

    The Florida Project is great.

    Lady Bird: ehhh.

    Yeah, you definitely need the context of that awful piece of garbage first.  With you on Lady Bird, thought it was fine but nothing special.  Hoping to see the Florida Project soon, and I, Tonya.  Too busy re-watching Blade Runner 2049 (at the Mrs’ request, she likes it as much as I do).

    Saw it live with Rifftrax a few years ago with the Mrs.  Theater was packed, footballs were tossed around, and spoons aimed at the screen often.  Was amazing then, especially with the guys making fun of it.  Wanted to go see it but a local place was playing Lady Bird and the Mrs. won out…  It was, ok I guess?  Nothing special, just pretty funny and not much actually happens.

    I liked it quite a bit but I have zero interest in ever seeing it again.  Not like Dunkirk, Blade Runner 2049, or Wind River.  Just caught Thor: Ragnarok again with the family and that one holds up to multiple viewings, so frigging funny.

    What made it “ehh” for you? I really enjoyed it. McDormand and Harrelson were great in it.

    I enjoyed while I was watching it, but upon reflection, there’s plot stuff that makes no sense. Describing it would spoil it.

    I ride with Kevin on the billboard movie.  John Hawkes rules though.  He and the actress who played his girlfriend should have gotten the awards.
