i saw the preview for that a couple times, one of those where i enjoyed the preview (she looks really fine in it) but had no interest in seeing the movie itself. looked a little too full of itself, no surprise with sorkin.

I am disappointed in that review. This was an actually a movie I was looking forward to seeing. I probably will still do so at some point, just to stare at Jessica Chastain for a few hours.

I en joy Chastain's work, but it seems a stretch that her hotness would be a sufficient reason to see a movie absent other redeeming qualities.

It appears to have a few redeeming qualities, so Chastain's hotness will probably put it over the top for me at some point. Your point is valid, and I wasn't exactly clear in my post so I can see why you made it.

Tonight I viewed Get Out, by the Key and Peele guy. Lena Dunham's hot friend that got her ass eaten on TV that time takes her black boyfriend home to meet her parents. He was in an episode of Black Mirror, bacon knows what I mean. Where was I? Oh yeah, white chick brings a black dude home. Believe it or not, white people are shitty and it doesn't go well.

Seriously though, this was a good flick. Creepy af, but occasionally funny too. Even the not-remotely-veiled "fuck white people" message didn't take too much away from my enjoyment of the experience.

Pretty strong rec.

31, avoid at all costs.

I took Pup 1 to see this this morning. I agree with Dong's review. This was a fantastic movie. Also, if it doesn't make you cry like a little girl whose puppy just died, you're a fucking monster and I don't want you on my planet.

It was good. Solid B+/A-

Favorite kids movie ever? Not for me. There are a lot of kids movie that i would put ahead of this. LEGO Movie, Lego Batman, etc...

The animation is really, really good.

The Post. eh, i dunno, i guess it was good and a strong cast but had a smidge too much Spielberger schmaltz and ponderousness for my taste.

Has Hanks done a good movie in like 15-20 years? All pretentious pieces of shit.

Also, I suspect that this film is going to take a hit bc ppl are sick of Merrill Streep’s uppity nonsense.

Captain Phillips wasn't pretentious! It was still a piece of shit, but you know...not pretentious.

I seen Get Out. It didn't do it for me at all. As a known hater of awkwardness in my film and television, I'm chalking that up as a big reason, but I also found the premise boring. Maybe if I was a black person with anxiety this might be a "thriller", but for me it was dull as bricks. No thrills.

I should have stuck with my gene's pick called In the Valley of Violence starring Ethan Hawke, John Travolta, Ziggy from the #GOAT, and a dog. At least with that one I could have completely tuned it out and played threes on my phone.

As a thriller I thought it was disappointing, as a comedy I thought it was great.

Disaster Artist. Pretty good, I doubt it's any good if you've never seen The Room though. Franco does a good Tommy. I enjoy the crew asking the questions throughout that every viewer asks.

Tommy was at a screening I went to once. Dude is a category unto himself.

Would I enjoy it more if I knew who Tommy was?

You went to a screening of The Room? Did you know the maestro himself would be there?
