Watched The Last Duel, with Matt Damon and Adam Driver. It was too long and Matt's hairdo/mullet looked silly. I had to force myself to watch the whole thing, I could not get invested in the story.

Introduced the boy to John Wick. I’m surprised how much this series of movies has grown on me.

Also watched Robot Ron or something stupid like that. Bubble Bots. The trappings of social media. Likes. Friends. Peer pressure. Addiction. So very current. Felt too much like a rip off of Big Hero Six, but it was entertaining. As we say in our home, it’s not a true Disney or Disney-wannabe movie unless something or someone dies.

Everyone in my writing group loves those John Wick moviesI tried and couldn’t get into it. Plus, Keanu may be a really nice guy, but he isn’t a very good actor.

Preach! I have been a Keanu skeptic since at least Bram Stoker's Dracula.

The Mitchell’s and the Machines.

I think that’s what it’s called. I didn’t finish it but I will. I knew nothing about it. So far, very pleasantly surprised. Even more surprised when I found out it was nominated for an Oscar this year.

Watched Parallel Mothers. A beautiful film by Pedro Almodovar staring Penelope Cruz. Deals with friendship, motherhood and romance against a backdrop of the history of the Spanish Civil War.

Loved this movie. Almodovar can do no wrong.

So I'm not a big Vin Deisel fan, but he made a great sci-fi movie called Pitch Black, and a goofy but fun sequel called Chronicles of Riddick. There was a third movie made that for some reason slipped under my radar, and I found a couple nights ago on HBO. Simply called Riddick. Good sci-fi, if not quite as good as the first movie. David Twohy wrote and directed all of them - he's from the X-Files writing room.

That X Files writing room is responsible for a lot of good TV and movies. The Sopranos writing room too.

I just finished Fury, an old school WWII movie about tank battles. REALLY good. Brad Pitt is really good in it. So is Shia LaBeouf.

I watched M Night Shyamalan's latest movie, Old. It was terrible. So terrible I had to watch it to the end to see if it could get worse, but it did. It was silly.

I didn't mind it, but I also like really weird things. lol

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. I really liked it, but others thought it was too out there.

Welp, that one goes on my list. "Out there" is a thumbs-up for me. Also, it's a Raimi film. But I should probably see the first Dr. Strange, eh. And, well, more of the MCU than I have.

At the very least, the first Dr. Strange and Spider-Man: No Way Home. Watching Wandavision would be great too but then you get into the, why is this happening in Wandavision so you'd have to watch Infinity War and End Game. Yeah, it's a lot.

All that being said, Sam Raimi is great.

Which is why I have kind of opted out on the MCU after watching (and generally enjoying) some of the early ones. Last one I saw was Captain Marvel but due to the setting being pre-Iron Man et al., it actually held up well on its own.

I did enjoy Raimi's Spiderman but my favorite Raimi superhero movie is still Darkman. Admittedly, it's "street level" vigilante superhero rather than Avengers-level but I kind of prefer those anyhow. Some of the more grounded Batman stories like Year One are faves, too.

Sissy and I had a Jurassic Park/World movie marathon to prepare for the new movie, Jurassic World Dominion, which we watched as a family yesterday. I have started on the Resident Evil movie series. Last movie I watched at the cinema was, Top Gun: Maverick. You need the surround sound to feel the full effect. I recently watched the trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, that's a must for me.

I watched Hugo in 3D. The effects are stunning. The film is based on actual people and events in Paris.

It draws inspiration from the rediscovery of Georges Mélies, a famous turn of twentieth-century film pioneer.

There is a little artistic licence, however. The film recreates a famous train crash which occurred at Montparnasse in 1895. Georges Mélies wasn't rediscovered until thirty years later.

I really liked this movie too. I was sad it didn't get more attention.

We saw Nope this weekend. I was disappointed, my least favorite of the three Peele-directed movies. Talia liked it even less than I.

My brother visited and insisted we see a movie. He picked it, Bullet Train, starring Brad Pitt. The violence reminded me of a Tarantino film. It had some amusing parts but dragged on for far too long.
