  1. And he looks good for 56, like I said, but I haven't seen him in anything in probably 15 years or more, so it was weird to see him look so much older than I remembered in my head. Just a bit jarring. Like I said? Not knocking him. It just threw me. Bit like seeing someone from college that you haven't seen in ages and wow, they got old, just like the rest of us.
  2. I thought it was okay. It has been a long time since I've seen a Tom Cruise movie. He got old and puffy! Wow. That was jarring. I mean, he looks great for his age, kudos, but in my head, I still remembered him much younger, I guess. I thought the set up required the main character to be an absolute idiot, and that bugged me, and the ending was ridiculous, but whatever. It was fun enough. I hadn't seen the prior 2 or 3 in the series, but it didn't require any real knowledge to follow. The woman who played the White Widow had super-distracting mascara. I liked all the locations, though. Very nicely done there. *shrugs* It was fine. I liked it. I'll probably never watch it again, but it was worth my ticket cost.
  3. My Dallas city theater was PACKED yesterday. It was too hot to do anything else. Lines for the concession stand were crazy, drink machines were almost all out of drinks, it was bizarre. I was finally seeing JW, but looked like people just wanted to be inside where it was cool. When it's like 112 outside, not many options.
  4. I feel like DC can't win in a lot of ways. Snyder-verse was too dark and wannabe edgy. This is all colorful and comicbook-esque, but looks and sounds silly. I'll be honest, it doesn't look appealing to me, but I think I'm being biased b/c of how much I hated the Snyder stuff, and I wonder if that weren't in my head, if I'd be more willing to forgive the CGI, shark-riding (kudos to them for not shying away from the obvious jump the shark jokes) and Mera's hair and costume (yikes) and just embrace it for going for it. As it is, I think I'll wait to see reviews.
  5. Gotta admit, Trevor coming back is disappointing to me personally. The 80's setting...yikes, that's ugly. I loved the first, and I'll definitely see this, but I'm wildly less excited about it now.
  6. Beautiful teaser! Made me tear up. I wasn't really excited for this. Kind of thought Burton would make it too weird. But now, I'm really looking forward to it.
  7. My 12-year old said she really loved it. I enjoyed it, too, but I do think she liked it more. She liked Quira a lot. Says she wants to be her for Halloween.
  8. I enjoyed it. Wasn't blown away, but was consistently entertained. I felt the same way about Glover's Lando. I know he got a ton of praise from critics, but I actually thought it was a bit over the top and lacked BDW's smoothness, though I guess you could argue that came with age. I liked Alden just fine, and it was probably a good choice for him NOT to try to mimic Harrison, since it wasn't going to happen. Emilia was surprisingly good and had an interesting character arc where she wasn't evil, just a survivor, but was ultimately out to protect herself and you kind of got why. I did like some of the little shoutouts, like Lando mispronouncing Han and Chewie pulling people's arms off. That was funny. Also, Han just shooting Tobias at the end was a big meta FU to the whole Greedo thing, and I loved that. That was the part that got the biggest reaction at our showing last night. I'll probably see it again, but I'm not ready to rush out and do it right now like I was with IW or TFA. It's just sort of sitting over there being a perfectly fine movie, but nothing exceedingly special.
  9. Ooomph, just checked online and our AMC here is no where near the presales of other SW or MCU movies. We are going tonight and there are plenty of good seats left at our 8pm showing. The 3D showings are really looking empty. I'm excited, though. My expectations are firmly in check, but I think it will be entertaining.
  10. Predator and Aliens franchises have so disappointed me. *sigh* This looks lame, sorry. Shane Black is hit or miss for me, but this doesn't do it for me at all. I'll just pull out my original Predator DVD and watch that.
  11. I just bought our seats for the 8pm showing Thursday night. 7pm showing, all the good seats were gone already. Dang, Star Wars fans buy early!
  12. My 12:30 show that day was almost totally sold out and it was playing on a bunch of screens. Amazing on a Sunday. I haven’t seen that even with TFA.
  13. I'll definitely be there opening day. Cautiously optimistic? I generally find Howard's films to be competent and entertaining, if not mind-blowing. It is weird how I don't think Glover looks much like BDW, but he pulls it off instantly and screams Lando to me, whereas Alden is just sort of there. I don't know. That's a tough sell for any actor.
