    Saw TLJ and I'm torn. It oscillated back and forth between amazing and unnecessary. It contains some of my favorite scenes in the entire series, while also losing my attention in other places.

    Also, not really a spoiler but there were several places in the movie where it felt like characters were swapped around from where they were supposed to be and what they were supposed to be doing. A significant portion that really should have been two particular characters getting into trouble together had only one of them and was less interesting for it.

    I did agree with a lot of the plot decisions that people were up in arms about, I just didn't think they were executed in a satisfying way in several cases. I don't know where it sits in my ranking yet, need to see it a couple more times to say that. I know it's not #1, but it's fairly high on the list. It's hardly the train wreck it was made out to be either.

    Bill Murray: 'There should have been a day of mourning for American comedy the day that movie came out, because it was the supreme achievement of modern comedy'.

    From trailer it looks like something Bollywood would make.

    Ready Player One (2018)
    7/10

    Was a bit worried about this one and could've been darker, but was pretty entertaining all the same. You'll probably hate it if you've read the book and you're also expecting more than straight-forward visual extravaganza from a $175M crowd-pleaser.

    For the 2047 remake; there's also a great fanfic that would've made a very neat plot twist when placed right at the end (along with some added ominous epilogue resulting from the heroes' naivete). Perhaps by that time it won't take as much dough to create the special effects, leaving more room for content and less for board room execs.

    Fair enough. Might go see it after all then. I mostly go to theaters for the spectacle, and save movies I think will be more for the brain and less for the eyes for viewing at home later.

    This. For the most part, you get only one shot to see a movie with lots of eye candy on the big screen.

    I know it's not the focus of that image, but I think I've actually watched all of those kung fu movies.
