    It's like a cross between Lord of the Rings and The Muppet Show....

    "The Green Mile" (1999)

    Fourth
    time viewing, but it still packs the same emotional impact on me.

    Tremendous portrayals by all characters in this powerful movie, with so many lessons in life that are shared as you press your nose up to the glass on this silver screen treasure.

    I watched "Get Out" two nights ago. One of the "best picture" nominations. Pretty bizarre. Better, though, in my opinion than "Shape of Water," but still not best picture stuff to me.

    Also watched "Lady Bird" a few weeks ago. OK... but best picture nominee? Nah...

    Manos, Hands of Fate, MST3K version.

    Best movie ever made, 5 stars, two thumbs up, 100% Fresh, it's a crime it wasn't even nominated for an Oscar. :crazy: :rflmao:

    The guy who played Torgo committed suicide before the film opened, he had issues before he made the film, but facing this humiliation couldn't have been helpful.

    "A Quiet Place".
    It takes a lot for me to NOT know what's going to happen next (and this one was predictable), but I enjoyed the heck out of it.

    I like a well told story by an original teller, Wes has a unique style, and he doesn't do the same thing twice.

    "Big Fat Liar" (2002)

    Stars Frankie Muniz, Amanda Bynes, Paul Giamatti, Donald Faison, and Amanda Detmer
    A nice family-oriented comedy, in which 14 year-old Jason (Muniz) is a habitual liar, so no one believes him when he has a short-story manuscript stolen by an unscrupulous Hollywood film producer (Giamatti), who plans on turning the story into a film.

    Jason and his best friend Kaylee (Bynes) set off for Tinseltown to settle the score, with the help of a few sympathetic folks who have also been screwed over by the producer. This is a light and lively film, a good way to pass a couple of hours.

    Finally got around to seeing last summer's big hit, Baby Driver. Not sure what to make of this one. Early on, I thought it was being self consciously "stylish" in a kind of half-assed tribute to Michael Mann, but it sort of grew on me. There are some great driving scenes in which what I must assume are some pretty impressive CGI effects are seamlessly blended with live action. The performances, however, seemed mostly stock and to varying extents phoned in: Kevin Spacey (was this his Hollywood swan song?) was competent in the kind of paternal elder statesman role that he's played to better effect elsewhere (I'm thinking 21 here), Jon Hamm was just Don Draper as a hired assassin (not a big stretch), and Jamie Foxx was a prototypical angry black psychopath. I kind of liked the kid who played the title role. He had a kind of a disengaged millennial diffidence that was perfect for the part.

    The soundtrack, which was widely billed as being the best thing about the film, was ideally suited to the story, script and production design, but didn't really knock my socks off.

    All that being said, there was something of an engaging plot (which is a component often overlooked in modern filmcraft), the performances were adequate for their purpose, there was some clever-ish dialogue, and the movie had a cohesive look and feel and was decently paced.

    I give it a recommendation, but with reservations as noted above. I would be curious to compare notes with others who have seen it.

    I enjoyed Baby Driver. Dumb in an extremely entertaining way. Well-filmed. I liked John Hamm's character, his girlfriend, and haircut.

    Best line: "living room."
