    Incomprehensible to the point of annoyance. Visually impressive, and I saw what Nolan was going for, but I thought he crawled way too far up his own ass on this one.

    Time for my two times a year watch of John Carpenter’s The Thing. It’s not only my favorite horror movie of all time, it’s in my Top 10 of any movie genre. This was released around the time ET came out and it was slammed by critics. It took years later for this movie to receive it’s due. It’s Carpenter’s best movie IMO. The Antarctic location added the the fear and dread. It’s a clever mystery as well. The F/X still hold up to this day.

    Another thing about Tenet is that i wish i would've brought ear plugs. This is a LOUD movie! That is a drawback of Nolan's recent films. Also, no Hans Zimmer Score in this, but Ludwig Goransson fills in admirably.

    Tenet- It was great going to the movies again! Even though there were only four other people in there, i relished watching a movie in XD again. This is a difficult movie to comprehend if you aren't paying attention. I think i got a handle on it, but another watch is in the cards because this movie was so danged awesome. There is a part in this movie where our Protagonist has to retrieve something from the future. What comes next is a fantastic action sequence in reverse that draws the movie together. You just don't know it's doing that until the ending. I loved this movie and Nolan is my favorite director. His fascination with Time, and how he puts it on screen, is an amazing achievement in his films. This one takes the cake. Go see this movie but you may have to see it multiple times.

    Finally got around to watching Parasite after it being suggested daily on hulu. I LOVED it. Fantastic movie that has a lot of genres going on. I remember calling BS when it won Best Picture. I see why now.

    Lol...actually wonder if the relationships portrayed between the founding fathers aren't more accurate than the stately portraits and flowery write ups we read.
    it's easy to forget how hard these guys work. Chris Jackson stated he played Washington eight times a week for a year...said it took 2 years for his voice to normalize. Daveed Diggs was in an interview with Colbert. Colbert said he could watch the show a hundred times. Diggs just shook his head and said he had played Lafayette/Jefferson 520 times, so he was in no hurry to do it again.

    Hamilton is an absolute masterpiece. I had heard the soundtrack album numerous times before (and enjoyed it), but seeing the show this weekend put the pieces together.

    As a fan of hip-hop music, I adore how slavishly Miranda worked to stay true to that genre, while also managing to root the show completely in musical theater. Brilliant performances, brilliant storytelling, and some of the best music I've ever heard. It's worth every bit praise that it has received.

    Believe it or not, watched Hamilton this past week. Anyone that can make Alexander Hamilton and Burr halfway entertaining is genius.
    Tremendous talent. 'Washinton on your side' keeps rolling in the mind. Along with a about ten other tunes.

    had to listen to some Stones, Three Dog Night and Seger to get the Hamilton ear worms out.

    Wife and I watched 365 Days on Netflix last night, which has become a kind of bizarre sensation on Netflix.

    This movie is spectacularly terrible. It reminded me a little of the Shannon Tweed NC-17 stuff we used to rent back in high school when my friend worked at the local video store. But you get the feeling with 365 Days that the filmmakers were going for something earnest, and it takes you a bit--at least 30 minutes of running time--before you realize that you're in the hands of maniacal idiots. This movie is a cross between a '90s music video, softcore Beauty and the Beast, the worst mob movie you've ever seen, with a little 50 Shades of Gray shamelessly thrown in. It has at least eight inexplicable scenes that make absolutely no sense at all, spends at least 1/4 of its running time with the camera hovering disturbingly on the lead actress's face as she stares off into the middle distance, and its ending arrives like the screenwriter just gave up. It's almost historically bad and arguably one of the three or four worst movies I've ever seen...but damnit I recommend it for couples who might want to just stare at the screen for a couple of hours and laugh a bit before bed.

    Maybe A24 will do a version of The Canterbury Tales next.
    Yeah, it’s the Gawain story. As an English major, I actually wrote a pretty decent paper on it in a British lit class.

    I’m with you, though, in that I never pictured anything like this film when I read it. This appears to be a weird, psychedelic take, and I’m here for it.

    Spare me The Canterbury Tales, though. Ugh.

    I’ve never felt like Arthurian legends have been adequately presented in film. Everything about King Arthur and Co. seems chock full of theater potential, but every attempt that comes to mind seems cheap and corny.

    The Green Knight may buck that trend.
