    Liked the Last Jedi more than most people I suppose. Wife didn't like it much, it was just a good mindless eye candy movie for me.

    Just watched Downsizing with Matt Damon. Really interesting to me and not at all what I would do if directing. Not a spectacular movie by any stretch but kept my attention.

    Was it Hitchcock scary or Chucky scary? I don't like the latter, much prefer the former. It looks Hitchcockian.

    When I was in college I got royally stoned on brownies and smoke. My buddy then took me and a couple other guys to see "The Groove Tube". The opening was so eerie that I almost had a panic attack. It reminded me of 2001 A Space Odyssey. Then a few minutes into the movie it got so funny that I laughed my ass off for nearly every minute of the movie. If you want to get stoned and enjoy one of the best comedies I've ever seen, I highly recommend The Groove Tube.

    Would definitely say the former, I don't like the latter either.

    Also saw A Quiet Place. Really good. Get prepared to read subtitles. Clever film that is very intense. Good running time. The end is perfect (by that I mean that they picked the right tempo and spot to end the movie).

    Annihilation - I liked this one, I liked the ending
    Goldstone - well done crime film set in the Australian Outback
    Foxtrot - technically a good Israeli film, emotionally charged, but I just wasn't feeling it
    A Quiet Place - pretty good flick, but one of the plot devices pissed me off though

    I absolutely love the concept behind it, and think it's a fresh and innovative way to storytell. I'm going to wait until it comes out to rent, because I be a too scurred to sit in a movie theater in complete silence for that long lol. But I love the challenge they took for this, and want to support that.

    Watching a lot of old stuff recently. Watched the entire 70s run of Columbo. That kind of counts as movies because they're all movie length. AND, the first one ever (well, apart from the two pilots) was directed by STEVEN SPIELBERG (and written by Steven Bochco):

    Peter Falk is AWESOME.

    Another actual movie: Ball of Fire. Barbara Stanwyck and Gary Cooper with a script by Billy Wilder that is like a dry run for (greatest movie of all time) Some Like It Hot. Check it out - 5 stars!

    Expectations make movies so hard to judge. Wife rented The Greatest Showman.

    I love Hugh Jackman and don't love musicals.

    I loved every minute of that fucking movie, don't know what to tell ya.

    Just watched "Get Out" last night. Thought it was great. Lived up to the expectations.

    Beirut - OK if you like the genre
    Lean on Pete - pretty good, not as upbeat as I expected

    Randomly went to a movie I'd never heard of called "Finding Your Feet". British drama/romance about people in their 50's/60's still having lives in a world that is no longer geared toward them. Clearly targeted toward an older demographic, but well-done and enjoyable.

    I hate that! Can't understand some of this stuff. Just yesterday, I was over at the Verizon store and there was a young woman in there, nice looking.
    But damn! She looked as if had a bad fall, head long, right into my fishing tackle box, nose first. She didn't even seem to know she still had some hanging
    from obvious places! Geez, it seems like it would be very annoying.

    I was shopping with my wife a couple days ago when she brought me back to Oxnard. For got the store now but, she nudged me! Pointed!
    There was a guy with Ear Lobe disks. Big suckers too, like three fucking inches in diameter! Holy shit! what do you do with that mess of excess when this fad shifts?

    I don't literally know for sure but have been told surgery to repair it is about three grand.
