  1. Saw CM today in 3D (thanks A-List!) and my wife and I really enjoyed it. Brie Larson has real charisma, she carried the lead role easily. SL Jackson has more to do here since the first Avengers film and is at his casual-intense best. The SFX in 3D were outstanding. The story was not convoluted at all, easy to follow, and yet gelled easily with the larger Avengers themes that overhanged the film. Fast-paced and filled with action, with a nice dollop of humor a la the Thor and Guardians films. I can easily rate this film a solid ... B+ ..... 841/1000 Recommended, and I will see it again in Dolby Cinema on Monday. And if you didn't know, there are two end credit scenes, one early on, the other at the very end of the credits.

  4. I saw this film the other day as someone completely unfamiliar with the "Dragon Ball" universe. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it quite much. The story wasn't convoluted, and the action and battle scenes were outstanding. Liked it more than Spider-verse.

  6. Very cool that you've been tracking your movies since 2004. I started doing so middle of the next year, July of 2005.

  8. Nah, it's actually a long-standing precedent for a late-year film to play a short run in LA and/or NY in actual movie theaters in order to be eligible for Oscars. Has happened many times before.
  9. In my opinion, "Isle of Dogs" is better than I2 or Spider-Verse by a long shot.
  10. "Isle of Dogs" is way better than Spider-Verse, or any other the other nominees. The technical aspects of SV are, IMO, clouding the fact that as a film it's a real mess. The one reason it might get the Oscar is that none of the other commercial animated films are that great either, e.g., I2 wasn't anywhere close to I1 in quality. Isle of Dogs is, but is under the radar.
  11. I saw all of the Best Picture nominees and let's face it, it's a really weak crop. None of the films are bad, some are pretty good (I'm looking at you, "The Favourite") but none of them are close to great.
  12. Most interesting decision IMO will be between "I2" and "Spider-Verse" for Best Animated Feature. Spider-Verse has the technical geeks agog, but as a movie it's a pretty mess. I2 has its flaws as well.
  13. Thank God "Crazy Rich Asians" was shut out. The cliches were a mile thick in that one. The makers should just be happy with the mint it made.

    Glass (2019)

    I gave the film a B. I liked it. I didn't compare it to "Unbreakable" because IMO that's one of the most under-appreciated films of the past 25 years, it's really, really good. It's more comparable to Split in terms of quality. If you liked Split you'll like this, I believe. It's a fitting ending to the erstwhile trilogy.
  15. I saw DP2 back in the spring when it was originally released, and I also saw the "Once Upon ... " cut last month. It was worth it. The asides and commentary were worth the price of admission and the way they manage to technically reduce the elements that made it an R-rated film in its original release are clever, they keep the original's spirit.
