how did you watch 4 movies 3 days into the year?

Christ. I am impressed.

The most recent movie I watched was Spider-man: No Way Home.

I have also restarted watching the Netflix Daredevil show. (So freaking good)

I also watched the majority of the Hawkeye show. It was pretty okay. Generally I am fine with women kicking ass and in-universe there has been plenty of opportunities for them to train. (Widow training program, Wakanda royal guard, Sharon being a SHIELD operative and CIA (and she was military as well? not sure) etc) but a 120lb 20 year old fighting grown men/ criminals.

Thats a huuuuuge stretch even if she has a blackbelt or two. But I liked it overall. Wish I could finish it.

I watched The Matrix Resurrections a few days ago. Over all a very good movie with many themes layered on top of eachother. I dont want to spoil anything for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, but NPH does a great job. Also, it's on HBO Max so anyone who has that should go watch it before it gets taken off.

I watched the first episode of The Book of Boba Fett. I like how it addressed what happened to him after he fell into the sarlac in RotJ and how he escaped. I also like the call backs to the Mandalorian and RotJ.

I also watched the most recent episodes of STD, and this season definitely feels like the series is finally finding it's footing as a star trek series. I think it still has pacing issues and ofcourse the season's plot is to stop another threat to the galaxy. However it's trying to focus more on character development and while it seems to stumble on some of that, it's doing a much better job than the previous seasons. It's also doing a great job of addressing PTSD and dealing with loss.

I just finished watching Fisher. I’d give it 3 stars out of 5. Maybe that’s not fair. Maybe I should give it 3.5 out of 5.
I tried to watch P-Valley but my TV broke.

How was Barton fink? It looked good but I haven't seen it yet. Worth spending very limited off time on?

I saw matrix resurrections last week. Overall pretty terrible but the first act was good. My main issues with it were the heavy-handed callbacks -- not the clips of other movies (those made sense in context) but the way the movie imitated other movies the way that terrible terminator 1 reboot did. I also took issue with the fight sequences, which lacked the creativity and ingenuity of other matrix films.

Barton Fink rules. I've not actually seen early Coen brothers films, and Raising Arizona is still definitely my favorite so far. But Barton Fink isn't that far behind it. Every movie just needs one solid John Goodman Screaming Scene, IMO.

Awwww... I personally loved The Matrix Resurrections. It does seem like in these kinds of polarizing franchise films that seem to divide audiences, I seem to always come out on the side of "liking it." Love it, hate it, indifferent towards it, but I can't imagine in a million years getting a franchise film that would be made 20 years later that serves as a *response* to the original film.

I watched Creed 1 and Creed 2. Great films! (imo Creed 1 is superior but 2 is a pretty good sequel)

I just started the Rocky franchise! Rocky II today, which I actually think is a better movie than the original Rocky, personally. (Not that it's like, night and day difference.) Looking forward to getting to the Creed movies.

To me it really depends on which day you ask me. Somedays Rocky 1 is the Superior movie others its Rocky 2.

@Jet Presto:
So far this year, 28 movies in 22 days!
Keep it up and you’ll probably achieve around 462 movies in 365 days!
(If I did my mental arithmetic right!)

I’m now watching The Broken Circle Breakdown, a Dutch/Flemish film but I’m using the English subtitles.
It’s set in the USA and is about Bluegrass music so most of the songs are English.
I couldn’t watch 1917, if I remember correctly, because of the paywall?

Actually a lot of it’s set in Ghent, apparently.

The envelope story is in a pediatric oncology unit in Ghent.
The flashbacks are in the USA; perhaps in the Appalachians.
[edit]No, it turns out the flashbacks are all within driving distance of the hospital in Ghent.[/edit]

I'm trying to build up a good head start because I know there are a few weeks coming up in which I probably won't be able to watch anything.

I mostly really liked the Rocky series, but with 4, I either needed there to be more robot or no robot at all. Lol.

I watched all four stories in STARZ’s “Girlfriend Experience”.
Season 1 Christine/Chelsea
Season 2 Erica and Anna
Season 2 Bria/Sarah
Season 3 Iris/Cassie

Season 3 was the only one with a happy ending.
Although you could consider Season 2 Bria to be a “happy” one for the characters we actually like; the protagonistes. It’s just very violent.
Season 2 Bria was more of a police procedural in my opinion.
Season 2 Erika and Anna was pretty close to pornography in my opinion. Also, it made it seem that immediately on hearing her lover wanted to break up, each and every lesbian would immediately fall to her knees and weep and beg her lover to stay.
And Erika’s ex-lover Darya (? Do I have that right?) was an absolute bitch.
Season 1 was set in present-day so the ending was realistic.
Season 3 is science fiction, so the happy ending is justified.

I am now trying to watch Yes God Yes.

10 Months ago

I finished Yes God Yes. I watched it because someone said it was funny.
On that basis it wasn’t worth the 4 dollars.
But as the story of a high school Catholic girl accused of a sex act she didn’t even know what it was, I guess it was good.
I would have appreciated it more if I were Catholic or a girl or in high school.
If I’d seen it nine years ago I might have thought of my daughter.
