    I just rented it from my local library, didn't think they would have it, but I figured I'd look since that's where I found my other favorite documentary. She was so talented, I might have shed a tear or two watching it, thanks for the tip on that, great, just great.

    Watched Doctor Strange - Fell asleep through part of if (taking cold meds) but went back and watched what I missed the first time.
    Meh it was ok but could have been much better IMO. Seemed like the same thing over and over...same fight, same type of special effects with a few different ones throw in there. Even the time loop part kind of added to it...there was enough repetition prior to the time loop part.

    I think going forward it could make for a better movie with just a stand alone or him with the avengers.

    Yeah, I felt exactly the same way. Lots of cool stuff they could have explored, but didn't bother. Very generic.

    I redboxed "hacksaw ridge" a couple of weeks ago,other than never seeing a single combatant actually reloading their weapons ( maybe it showed a Japanese dropping a mortar round down the tube) and why the Japanese would leave the rope cargo netting intact so the Americans could scale back up to the plateau after there assaults were repeatedly beaten back, it was absolutely astounding the number of wounded that lone conscientious objector combat medic single handily saved from certain death,,, gotta give it an 8 just based on its historical factual
    Merits, dude had the lords protection.

    I think that a conscientious effort is made to dumb down certain subject matter to make it understandable - and therefore relatable and appealing - to a larger audience. Part of me is bothered a bit by it, but the other part of me realizes it's also necessary. If they can't make money on it, there wouldn't be a Doctor Strange film made at all. So, I'd rather this than none at all.

    This is one you should have seen in theaters. The scale, effects, and 3-D were truly impressive, and they showed me that effects wizards can pretty much do anything that someone can dream up at this point.

    3 of 10.

    no stan lee. no scene in the credits.

    not much of a real plot or surprises. he's "wounded" the entire movie more or less and it's 2 1/2 hours long.

    An inspiring ...and I mean, VERY INSPIRING tale of three elderly woman who fear they are no longer valuable members of society simply because they are not young. They no longer feel appreciated .

    In an effort to comfort each other they form a special bond. Eventually, their search for social value is validated when they decide to order a couple pizzas. In the process, they meet a shy but helpful pizza delivery boy who helps them to come to the realization that they are indeed appreciated.

    I thought the acting was great, you could tell that each of the three actresses were committed to giving their very best effort in a physically demanding role. The pizza boy did a great balancing act that left us feeling as though each older woman, though different, contributed a unique set of talents.

    I recommend this movie to anyone over the age of 18. It certainly left me wanting more. Hopefully they will consider a sequel.

    Just watched The Terminator again for old time sakes. Only Arnold can pull off a main role saying less than 30 words :flagwave:

    Moonlight - 6.5/10. Not sure why this won best picture. It wasn't very good. Not sure why Mahershala Ali got a an oscar for best supporting actor. He was in the movie for about 20 minutes and had about 30 spoken lines. The plot was OK, the cinematography was good, but I thought it was just mediocre.

    Logan - Great movie! Loved the story and the action scenes were intense! This is not a movie for young kids due to language and heavy violence.

    This is not a superhero movie. It's a movie about family and friendship, duty and sacrifice, morality and immorality, mortality and illness, and ideals and hope. Logan is well-written but could have used a little more specific direction at times in my opinion.

    I don't know anything about the young actress playing the role of X-23 but she definitely has the eyes and facial expressions of a very talented pro. I got a small but similar vibe from her that I got from Natalie Portman in The Professional. Hopefully she will be doing more English films in the future.

    My hat's off to Jackman and Stewart if this is their swan song performances in the Wolverine/X-Men franchise. They did a great job expressing what the X-Men ideal is at its core, far removed from the special effects powers and visualizations. To quote a line from The Prince Of Egypt: "Although hope is frail, it's hard to kill."

    I'm very tempted towards placing Logan not just at the top of The Wolverine franchise but also atop the entire X-Men franchise. But I do echo @viman96 earlier caution. Logan showcases The Wolverine world at its finest and is not meant for kids.

    He's in it for about 20 minutes. Anthony Hopkins is in Silence of the Lambs for about 15 minutes (and he won Best Actor!) and Judi Dench is in Shakespeare in Love for a whopping 8 minutes, and she won too. Beatrice Straight's Best Supporting Actress Oscar-winning performance in Network, is all of five minutes That's the way it go sometimes. The impact you have on the screen in that short amount of time is worthy enough. It is a deserving win and the movie is a deserving Best Picture winner. Get over it.

    I'm over it. Didn't really care, just didn't think they were the best. Spotlight, last year, wasn't deserving of it, either.
