    I've read a couple of reviews on this one and all were very positive. Looking forward to seeing it.

    I rather liked The Greatest Showman, when my wife brought it home from the public library I was
    a little afraid it'd be a nose-picker, but they really did a good job. The out-takes are fun to watch also...

    Most people today would not catch the cameos.

    Me too, although for different reason. The farther along they went, the farther away from the books they got.

    Solo - A Star Wars Story
    Agreed - we watched it last night - it didn't suck at all.
    A Ron Howard movie - he pushed the right buttons!

    I've skipped some of the newest movies Star Wars because they DID suck!

    "Roma". A young woman is servant to a Mexico City family in 1970. By the director of "Gravity" but utterly different.

    The movie is mostly about how her life goes from bad to worse along with that of the family and the country around them. Amazingly effective at putting you into the time and place. Very effective use of surround sound in the theater.

    I admired it more that I enjoyed it as much of it is grim. My wife thought it was great and disliked "Gravity", so there you go.

    "Everything Is Illuminated" (2005) (stars Elijah Wood)
    This film turned out far better than I had originally expected. A young man (Wood) journeys to Russia, to seek out a woman who saved his Grandfather from being executed by the Nazis many years ago. His quest is extremely enlightening, not only to himself, but to several other Russians who help him along the way.

    Apocalypse Now

    Been running on NetFlix lately, so what the heck. Robert Duvall is a local around these parts, too.

    Watched "The Revenant" last night.

    Great scenery. Attention to time period costumes/gear. A fair bit of action. :thumbsup:

    But, it seemed a Bruce Willis-type movie on steroids, with a way too long plot.:thumbsdown:

    But Leonardo did win an academy for this movie...so what do I know?

    I don't do politics but I thought I'd give this a go last night having not lived in the UK for 13 years now (emigrated to oz) and not really getting a feeling of what the country went through and is still going through.A made for tv film,i think it really shows what modern politics is all about.
    Cumberbatch is great.

    Den of Thieves. (2018)

    it's a good heist movie, not a GREAT heist movie like Heat or Ronin. Enjoyed it nevertheless.
