    The Mule: A good film that was fairly entertaining with some really good scenes. It was missing something though, something ineffable that could've elevated the material even more. I read some criticisms that Cooper's character was totally bland, as were Fishburne and Pena, who were his boss and parter. And sure their characters were anything special, but I did appreciate that they felt like DEA agents who are in tunnel vision, only caring about getting this sting. And really, that's what their job is, and they're pretty no-nonsense about it. I think that story either had too much devoted to it, or not enough. I did enjoy the humour of the films and I liked Earl's relationship with the members of the cartel. I had read a review that complain of the films xenophobia, casual racism, and stereotypical portrayal of Mexican cartel members, with assault rifles and neck tattoos...but I felt the film actually did a good film of portraying the cartel members as something other than evil, mindless thugs. They laugh with Earl, crack jokes, and one thanks him for asking about his niece. If anything, the film showed that people get sucked into that kind of life, but they're not bad people inherently. The "casual racism" was basically a couple mild, off-handed comments Earl makes, but he says them without malice and as 90 year man who is out of touch, but also without a filter. For instance, while on a run, he sees a young family on the side of the road, and he pulls over to help them out. They're black, and Earl says "negroes" and they say they don't like to be called that, and Earl says "Mea culpa". The idea that Earl's character is racist for saying negroes despite the fact he would've helped that young family with a flat tire no matter their race, I think is not seeing the forest for the trees.



    The film definitely could've been better. I think it mostly comes down the script. It's a little bland, which probably accounts for the criticisms I've read about the performances. The story though is good. But even with that, I still can't put my finger on what is missing from this movie. It's very small and simple that was overlooked by the filmmakers. But I enjoyed myself and I'd probably watch it again down the road.

    This move reminded me of the similar concept from "The Happening." Before you go into a rage and assume "Bird Box" is just as bad, you can relax. "Bird Box" was much better. It had likable characters and stellar acting from Sandra Bullock. I felt that John Malkovich stole the show. It was great to see a ton of character development with so many characters. I rooted for many, but there were a few I was hoping would have an ending. There were "missing" parts of the story to give you questions and I am hoping this doesn't open up a vast universe of 18 more sequels and prequels. Overall I felt the movie was very good, very well acted, and had a nice concept. The negatives would be I didn't feel the river sequences were plausible and that the river sequences gave away too much. When you see the movie you will understand. Overall it is something people should enjoy from beginning to end. A nice horroresque type thriller. 7/10

    Spider Man : Into The Spiderverse

    A vibrantly colored and intoxicating charm of a movie. It's not enough to say that it's 'the best Spiderman movie ever made', it's a great film in its own right.

    True to it's comic book origins, the animated style gives it creative license to play with the conventions of film story telling and manages to tell a compelling coming of age tale without retreading the mythos of the original Spider Man (the film tongue-in-cheek recaps and pokes fun of this in a quick 30 second prelude to the movie).

    While the film is entertaining from start to finish, the best bits happen once all of members of the Spider verse meet. While each of them are Spider Men (and Women), the events that shaped each of them in their respective dimension vary, yet each share a common thread of loss and yearning for redemption. Their worlds might be different, but the mantra of 'Great Power, Great Responsibility' resonates strongly in each of them.

    Great for comic book fans, great for Spider Man fans, great for family entertainment.

    People seem to be gushing over this one. I'm hoping to find the time to fit it in. The theater has become quite packed all of a sudden.

    Also, it's great seeing your thoughts about a movie. I feel like it's been too long.

    I took my son to see this last night and I pretty much agree with everything you said. This has to at least be nominated for best animated feature. I'm glad we chose this over Bumblebee.

    They Shall Not Grow Old: A really good documentary that is pretty unique in terms of presentation. Much of the film is done through voiceovers from WW1 soldiers. And since they're long dead, there were no talking heads really allowed the spoken experiences and memories to give the images more weight and context. What really gives it weight though is that despite not knowing any of the soldiers names, either through voiceover or on the screen, the documentary was really about living through WW1 and not about World War 1. World War 1 was the end of an era when it came to wars, since World War 2 changed the face of warfare forever (but warfare has even evolved not to resembles WW2 anymore). I really liked the stuff about the Germans they'd captured and the way the soldiers talked about them with fondness and without hatred, and a mutual empathy for how similar they were to themselves, and it's hard to believe warfare ever had any kind of mutual respect or understanding for the plights of your enemies. The epilogue especially was quite sad, as soldiers who'd survived returned to an apathetic England who were disinterested in the war and what they'd been through, and the isolation the soldiers felt. It must have been a horrible feeling. Especially when you think after winning World War 2 the hero's welcome those soldiers got. I suppose that really speaks to the general pointlessness of World War 1 when compared to the evil that had to be defeated in World War 2.



    The efforts they put into adding colour and sound to black and white, silent film footage that's 100 years old was quite amazing to behold. It really helps make it feel more real. Book-ending the film with black and white, silent footage really heightened their work, when you see the imperfections in the film, not to mention the janky movements from the low frame rate cameras from those days. I do wish my theatre had a 3D cut of the film because it would've just felt that little bit more real, but I can't complain. Considering it's a 2 hour documentary with no real throughlines other than war starts and war ends, the two hours just flew right by because it was that engrossing.

    Escape Room:


    6-pack of no name actors stuck in a series of escape rooms. Typical assortment-introverted college savant, game nerd, dirt bag grocery clerk, hot shot investment advisor, trucker, and female PTSD veteran.

    All share one background quirk. Trick is to guess who gets picked off first (and last). Movie makers screw the viewer with an ending that almost commands a sequel, from a movie that commands a quick January release demise.

    I'm looking forward to Escape Room. I don't think it'll be anything groundbreaking, but it looks like good mindless fun.
    With one chance to go back...
    who would you save?

    It was for me (good mindless fun). Not a great movie, but I don't regret the $6 matinee price I paid for a reserved power reclining seat in a well appointed theater.

    Cargo - A Netflix zombie flick starring Martin Freeman. Simple story of a man who literally fought for his daughter until his last breath. If, like me, you thought Bird Box was devoid of any feeling of tension and dread, this might be a good watch. It's a similar premise, both are survival stories in which the "monster" isn't all that important. It reminded me of Brian Keene's The Rising and The Walking Dead when it was still watchable. 3.5/5

    Bleach. Eh. It was okay. Watch the original anime or read the manga if you have the time. This was like Cliff's notes of the story. 2/5

    Deadpool. Hilarious but unlike a proper good movie, no rewatchability quality here. Once the jokes are out, they're out and without those, Deadpool is just another soulless superhero flick. 3/5.

    Vice:


    Great black comedy look at the mysterious yet ultimately powerful Dick Cheney. Literally the puppeteer behind the inept George W Bush presidency, Cheney obviously changed the way things are done in Washington. The filmmakers break through the fourth wall, have a premature film ending, make you laugh, and make you deeply concerned with what lies ahead in our future. Christian Bale does his amazing immersion and becomes Cheney. Amy Adams is the puppeteer behind Cheney, just as Cheney was the puppeteer behind Bush. Fantastic performances by all involved, but IMO none worthy of winning an Academy award.


    4/6 Beers on the RFSRS.

    I agree with everything you said, except I think Bale is worthy of an Oscar. I didn't see Christian Bale, I saw Dick Cheney.

    The other scene I loved was the Shakesspeare scene. Briliant.

    This mish-mash of a movie takes 4 or 5 good Sci-fi and moral plots, throws them in a blender, clones them, then uses the spilled effluvium to create a vomit mess. The worst part is the use of our favorite Verizon spokesperson as an assistant to Keaanu Reeves.
