    Yeah, just heard about this and will have to watch. Heard the best segments are those with Tim Blake Nelson and Zoe Kazan.
    Watched it in chunks over the last few days and strongly agree. I'd put the one with Tom Waits as a solid third.

      I'll have to give it another try. I made it about 30 minutes and thought it was very bland, derivative, and unimaginative, the kind of thing that's been done a thousand times before. Maybe I'll watch it for the battle sequences (didn't get to those), but I feel like that's been done to death too.

        Loved it. So, so good.

          Did see Widows last week and I'm guessing most won't since so many bigger films are starting to get released Thanksgiving and beyond. Directed by Steve McQueen of 12 Years A Slave fame, it's a smart, character-driven heist movie with some sub-plots or scenes that touch on larger, societal issues such as police violence and economic disparity, but it's not near as heavy-handed as Crash or some other films. Well acted and very well made for the most part (despite a few puzzling edits), although it was a bit slow at times.

            Saw Instant Family this past week. Went into it thinking this is a pretty tough subject to make into a comedy. Came away thinking they did a pretty damn good job balancing the seriousness of the subject with some decent light hearted comedy. Overall, thought the movie was pretty good/entertaining.

                That's a huge fucking NOPE for me.

                    I finally watched Mandy last night... that was just as bat shit crazy as I thought it would be. Still don't know if I liked it or not.

                      I liked it although I enjoyed the first one more. Creed II is a bit slow at times and the main focus seemed to be on the relationship between Creed and Tessa Thompson rather than the fight with the young Drago. More predictable and cliche (training montage, ring redemption, etc.) like the later Rocky movies, but it has heart and I'm a sucker for any Rocky-related movie sans V.

                      • Saw Into The Spider-Verse yesterday. Lots of fun and it brought something completely new to the franchise with great melding of computer animation, traditional 2D and elements of comic book illustration. And before anyone asks, they don't give the origin story for the 437th time.

                          That’s too bad. I don’t really know the story, but I always assumed Spidermom and Spiderdad had Spiderson, but were killed when their neighbor, The Old Woman who live in a Shoe, accidentally dropped her house on them when she was trying to move her home to a new location with lower property taxes. That explains why Spiderson had to grow up with his Aunt and Uncle in Bel-Aire.

                            Spiderson? Are you assuming this spiderperson's gender?

                            • Went and saw Aquaman to distract myself after the KU loss. Was decent. Visuals were good. Acting, OK. But it really suffered from not exploring the backstory of the antagonists enough. Patrick Wilson's character had 0 depth and his reasoning for wanting to go to war is very peculiar, more like an excuse for a warmonger. Anyway, go see it if you want 2 hours of mind free escapism and eye candy.

                              • Bird Box, Netflix Original. Sandra Bullock, John Malkovich, and others. It's a Stephen King-esque suspense thriller. It's based on the eponymous novel, which was NOT written by King. But if you're a fan of that style, I highly recommend. Great job of creating and maintaining suspense from the get-go and then sustaining it until the end. It was a fun watch and I was sad when the ride was over.
