Any good movies lately?

Jun 20, 2018, 3:07 PM

I watched Only the Brave. It's not great but worth watching.

New Jurassic World looks good

- Black Panther
- Guardians of Galaxy 1 & 2
- Daddy's Home 2
- Wonder (da feels)
- Thor Ragnarok

I liked Incredibles 1. Was it as good?

Is Black Panther great or is it overhyped?

Spend the $2 at Redbox and watch Black Panther

If you like Avengers type movies, then you'll enjoy it. Not as many aliens and more 1v1 conflict.

Haven't seen Incredibles 2 but it's received massive viewership so far.

I y don't like Avengers type movies. Although, I did like Deadpool a lot.

I thought Thor Ragnarok was better than GOG 2 but not as good as GOG 1

Daddy's Home 2

but may have to check it out.

At our Y,they have a movie room thingy with treadmills, was showing Masterminds for the 40 min I was in there, was funny in a stupid way, may try to watch the rest

Hereditary

[3]
Jun 20, 2018, 4:05 PM

Haven't seen it yet, but want to.

The Death of Stalin and Super Troopers 2 are both worth seeing.

I am not a SuperTroopers fan, but...

I will check out that Death of Stalin.

I've heard good things about 2 out of 3 of those

[3]
Jun 20, 2018, 4:31 PM

Hereditary seems like one of those movies that critics love but general audiences hate. It's at 90% on RT but only 56% of audiences like it. I usually side with critics and I've heard very good things about it so I'm hopeful.

My guess is it doesn't have a happy, tidy resolution

If you like Super Troopers at all, you'll like Super Troopers 2. People forget that the first Super Troopers had bad reviews, too. Like you, I go more with the critics than the people, usually, but the exception is comedies.

2022 white level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg flag link

Admission: I've never seen Super Troopers.

So, yeah, my opinion on whether to see the 2nd one doesn't mean much.

For Heredity, what I've heard is that there are no jump scares and it's an 'artsy' horror movie which general audiences don't like. Heard it described similarly as The VVitch which I really enjoyed but general audiences hated.

also: the shot seen at the 6:04 mark in this video pretty much sold me on seeing it.

The Witch was great

The audience score on that one being so low just confirms for me why I don't pay much attention to it for movies like that. Not surprisingly, the audience score for another great horror movie- It Follows- is much lower than the critic score.

It follows is also great.

I think general audiences don't like atmospheric/slower horror movies as I bet most of the 'negative' reviews for these movies will list the films as being "boring" which tells me they are somewhat conditioned for jump scares every 10 minutes.

Whenever somebody calls a good movie "slow"...

Jun 20, 2018, 5:34 PM

I usually think that person is just kind of dumb.

2022 white level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg flag link

I mean, it's all just preferences and subjective, but...

[2]
Jun 20, 2018, 6:08 PM

I do too.

But note, I'm guilty of thinking films others have liked are boring and couldn't finish them (first one that comes to mind is Lost in Translation) so I try to remind myself that everyone has different tastes and liking a movie or not has very little to say about a person's intelligence* (I hope...).


*Of course there are exceptions to this, like those that LOVE the Transformer movies...

Game Night is a surprisingly good/fun movie

Jun 20, 2018, 4:34 PM

with a solid premise. The way everything is set-up and paid-off (end credits are great) is fantastic.

Highly recommend.
