    Saw Coco this weekend. Maybe I am biased, as someone who served a mission in Latin America. But I loved it. Does Pixar have a few plot devices they recycle? Sure. But this film was very clever, nonetheless. There are plenty of parallels to Monsters Inc. Ratatouille, Toy Story 3, Up, etc. but they are not tired, and they certainly aren't off-putting. Anyone who doesn't like this movie is a commie who is likely pushing an anti-Pixar agenda.

    I haven't seen the Room. I didn't even know that the Disaster Artist was based on it. But I still liked it. There was great chemistry between the Franco brothers. And James Franco was perfect for that character. I thought his character was over the top until the end, when I realized the Room really was a movie. Looks like he played the character pretty straight.

    And now I have to see the Room!

    Anyone used Moviepass yet?

    We tend to watch most of our movies in december, so figured it was a good month to test it out. Works like a charm.

    Probably will keep it. 1 movie and it pays for itself.

    "Downsizing" it's terrible, don't go. Matt Damon has made some really bad choices and this is one of them.

    Saw this last night. Couldn't agree more. I'm not sure I have ever seen a more misleading trailer for a movie in my life. And how the hell did Kristen Wiig get star billing for that? What a crock of shit that movie was.

    Coco - Typical Pixar. Gorgeous scenes, good music, good but campy story, one or two really good heart-string tuggers, but overall kind of boring. Only two of my kids wanted to see it and they liked it but didn't love it. For an eight year old girl to not love a cartoon is kind of a low bar, so there you go. Of course, I served in France, so Ratatouille is still my favorite. I did love that in Coco, the guitar playing music matched the strings the kid was playing, which was cool.

    It certainly won't win any awards, but it was a fun time.

    They show Jason Sudeikis in the trailer for the movie like he’s going to have a major part and then he’s in the movie for maybe five minutes. I was expecting some comedy but it just turned into two hours and fifteen minutes of boredom.

    Yup these commie Hollywood types are trickling middle American Trump voters into paying to watch a super boring allegory promoting green and socialist ideals. Can’t say I blame them because who would see this movie if they knew what it was truly about?

    I finally got around to watching Passengers for free and it wasn’t as bad as I feared. Speaking of allegories. it’s kind of a thought-provoking Adam and Eve with some Voltaire “Till Your Garden” vibe mixed in. I found it somewhat inspirational.

    Star Wars. Possibly ruined my desire to see anymore of them. Really bad plus really long is a rough combo. Found myself longing for Jar Jar Binks.

    Some people are in denial about this movie, but the reality will eventually set in. The box office decline resembles the trajectory of something like Batman vs Superman.

    I thought it was good. But I guess once reality sets in, I'll figure out it was horrible.

    Phantom Menace was horrible from the get go. I still haven't finished it. The Last Jedi is not in that same category.

    Saw it with my older kids tonight. There were 20 minutes in the middle where I slept, but I give it 5 out of 10. Maybe those 20 mins would improve my rating, but I’m skeptical.

    Way too long.

    I saw The Shape of Water yesterday. I like it, but I'm not sure I love it. It's a period piece and an obvious homage to monster-horror films from generations ago. It's visually stunning, just as you would expect from Guillermo Del Toro, and the sets are fantastically detailed and colored. It's a fun story with likeable characters, but for me the story arc just fell a little flat. For one, it's a little too black and white about who is good and who is bad--perhaps that part of the homage to films of old. But more nuance with the characters, or perhaps some back story about why the foil was so unreasonable, might have made for a more interesting climax. The show was plenty long, but the relationship between the protagonist and her lover felt rushed and superficial. The antagonist, Michael Shannon, is great, but it feels like he plays the exact same character in everything; he essentially reprised his exact character from Boardwalk Empire for this role. Richard Jenkins is also great, and I wouldn't be surprised to see a best supporting actor nominee for him. In fact, this thing is going to get tons of Oscar buzz, and will likely be nominated in all of the major categories. It's definitely worth seeing, but I don't think it's nearly as profound as it wants to be.

    Saw Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing Missouri

    An artistic "black comedy crime" movie focused upon the inability to solve a year old rape-murder of a local girl. The acting is superb, in that broken, poor white trash, are shown in their frailty but with some aspect of humanity still in tact. Frances McDormand and Woody Harrelson show unvarnished characters as part of blue collar middle America. The lack of resolution is part of its painful appeal.

    Darkest Hour. Really enjoyed it. Oldman was excellent as Churchill. Very interesting to see the turmoil/anxiety in parliament and in the war cabinet leading up to Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain.

    However, it is purported to be very inaccurate.

    My brothers, BIL also went and saw Darkest Hour

    All of us are WWII buffs and it was an interesting discussion on the inaccuracies. That said we enjoyed it.

    I agree with Hostile - Oldman is excellent. He really brings the man alive! I think he should get some nods during the awards season.

    The subway scene never happened. Lots of literary license according to historical reviewers.

    National Review put it thus,

    It is a cliché of the motion-picture industry that, in order to sufficiently excite audience interest, the climactic moments must incorporate a reversal of direction. Since we all know how this chapter of World War II ends — to give Wright and McCarten credit, it’s a stirring, magnificent scene in which Churchill rouses the nation with the 34-minute address one MP called “the speech of 1,000 years” — Darkest Hour simply imposes its dramatic needs upon the days preceding it. For the sake of a good yarn, it mistakes a lion for a jellyfish.

    Saw "Darkest Hour" a few days ago, and really enjoyed it. It was only playing in the Indy theater, and the 4pm showing was full of gray-haired people.... I thought it was kind of funny that cell phones were ringing during the whole movie.

    That subway scene was dumb, and seemed totally out of character for WC, and was a major veer of the road for the movie. Walking to the car, and before checking google, my daughter and I both doubted that really happened.

    I loved the line at the end about Winston 'weaponizing the English language'
