Wow...high praise for Shazam.  Not sure I'd go that far.

 

Always Be My Maybe....indie Asian-led (Randall Park from Fresh Off the Boat and Ali Wong) with a hilarious supporting performance by Keanu Reeves as the anti-Keanu, 3.25 stars

Toy Story 4   3 1/2 stars

Spiderman   3 1/2 stars

Tried to get through the critically-acclaimed Booksmart and made it through about 60 minutes...

Updated Quentin Tarantino power rankings.

1. Pulp Fiction

3. Kill Bill Vol 2

4. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

5. Reservoir Dogs

6. Kill Bill Vol 1

7. Jackie Brown

8. Death Proof

I think OUATIH is QT's best character piece.

DiCaprio and Pitt were great together.  Telling the Tate story without giving her much dialogue was an interesting decision.  One or two too many shots lingering on the hippie girl’s butt as she was sweet talking Pitt on Ventura, Hollywood or Melrose.  

As much as researchers try to figure it out, nobody has cogently explained the hold of Manson on those kids.  Finally, favorite scenes were with the precocious Trudi...and missed the Luke Perry cameo somehow.

For a director known for violence (and certainly the gruesome true story underpinning the events), it wasn’t that type of movie, it was a love letter to that period of cinema and the way things used to be.  Maybe a bit of self-reflection on the director’s part that the things you used to be able to get away with back then are rapidly becoming a thing of the past.

 

Crawl was actually the best alligator/crocodile movie of all time, although a low bar for sure.

Art of Self Defense already gone after one week, was meaning to watch that...although Zombieland 2 is enough Eisenberg for me.

The Lion King was strangely disappointing.  Just too much cognitive dissonance laying that soundtrack over real life animals in nature...Seth Rogen for once made it more tolerable.

Did you fall asleep for the 10 minutes Luke Perry was on the screen talking with Leo? 😜

I'll complain about the hairy pit shot of Cat and not the ass shots.

Felt the 2.5 hours flew by. Didn't drag like his 3 hour movies. The climax was pretty gorey but I know what you mean. Didn't you like Birdie?

I forgot Bruce Lee...that was awesome, too.

I must have fallen asleep there somehow...never adjust completely to jet lag from China, 4 p.m. show is like the middle of the morning.

Finally. AMC already had their own service, now Regal as well. Writing on the wall for awhile.
