I watched The Girl with All the Gifts a couple weeks ago and it was very enjoyable.
Good movie! I liked it too. I called my daughter "the girl with all the gifts" for like 2 weeks just because I'm weird.
Having said that, I'd rather listen to Papa Roach than GG Allin

I watched A Ghost Story with my wife this past weekend. They should sell the movie at CVS and Walgreens in the sleep aid section because I could not stay awake no matter how hard I tried. There was just something about the movie that made me want to sleep. My wife was able to stay awake and she said she liked it. I think she had her moments of wanting to fall asleep too.

You're trying to tell me you didn't find it riveting when Rooney Mara ate pie for ten minutes while Casey Affleck stood over her in a white sheet?!

Well that part had me sitting on the edge of my seat as did the several scenes of sheeted younger Affleck staring out of the window for elongated periods of time

I’m watching a movie with Vince Vaughn called Brawl in Cell Block 99 and I’m impressed with his performance so far. It’s a decent enough movie, though unoriginal. I never thought I’d find Vince Vaughn intimidating but he does a good job. It was pretty over the top but it was good for what it is.

A really shitty movie we watched this past weekend was 31 which is a Rob Zombie movie. I have no idea why I ever liked his movies. Not a likable character in the whole movie and it was torture porn with a loose outline of a bad plot.

We tried to watch The Accountant last night but we got bored and turned it off. We may try to watch the rest some other night. I think Affleck was a bad choice for the lead character

Wind River is really disappointing.  It is 106 minutes long, but feels like 3 hours.  The casting is really bad. The acting is fairly bad. There are scenes that feel heavily like foreshadowing, but never develop into anything. The cinematography is ok, but it makes the environment they are in seem small, not expansive.

Has anyone seen Phantom Thread? It’s not playing around here but I’d like to see it even if the subject matter doesn’t really interest me. It’s Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day Lewis so I’m sure it will be good regardless of subject matter

When lock down started I started MST3K from the beginning to watch while working and at this point I feel like an expert on schlock. A couple of the movies were genuinely good and I enjoyed them more than the riffing. I've also been watching a lot of the 50's and 60's stuff on the Film Detective app, much of which (but not all!) is also hokey but fun. Watched all of Twin Peaks + Fire Walk because I'd never seen it before, and I feel like I should have had my punk card revoked for not seeing it sooner. I don't really watch a lot of TV other than cartoons though.

How did we all feel about Uncut Gems? I liked it; it wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it was definitely a great performance from Sandler.

kinda weird how the earth continues to spin on its axis and everything eventually dies even when you don't want it to dang
