Finally caught up with It Chapter 2. Long, boring repeat of the first. Some decent scenes but don’t see the reason it had to be made. The first one was solid and stands up on its own. These characters as adults don’t work.

I know Adam Driver is in Star Wars. But I think he’s taken some big steps. Really liked Logan Lucky and BlacKKKlansman. Watched The Report and Marriage Story and he was great in those too. His range is phenomenal. Is he considered A-list in Hollywood? Because he should be.

At this point I think he is based on his past couple years of work.

He was also great in The Dead Don’t Die, a horror-comedy about zombies.

Looks legit.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Watched Ad Astra last night. Big fan of James Gray and Brad Pitt but this wasn't one of my favorites from either of them. Very understated film, big events don't seem to register much...maybe that was intentional, but I needed more oomph at certain points. Scenery and visuals are great though, and offers a cool look at what the future of space travel could be. I'd probably give it *** out of **** but closer to ** than ****.

Uncut Gems is great, one of my favorites of the year.

I adored Uncut Gems. May go see it again. Brilliant filmmaking. Frentic pace throughout, always keeping my interest.

 

I also enjoyed the Richard Jewell film.

 

Knives Out is ok but nothing special IMO.

1917 is maybe the most beautifully shot film I've ever seen. A real technical masterclass. See this on the big screen. Deakins is a God.

Bad Boys for Life was a lot of fun. Much better than the first one but still doesn’t live up to the original. I’m surprised it’s this good, 17 years since the last one and being released in Dumpuary.
