I enjoyed "Shirkers" on Netflix

A documentary. A memoir of sorts of the filmmaker's uniquely creative teen years in the 1990s Singapore. She is revisiting this era because a film she wrote and acted in, was absconded by a oddball mentor of hers, and resurfaced (25 years later. )

Nothing cataclysmic as we come to expect with docu films -though it is a pivotal part of the characters featured. Interesting culture, time capsule. Kind of kitschy.

I enjoyed Mandy last night. It felt like what I wanted from the endless list of 80s action-revenge movies that I subject myself to. Fantastic.

IMO streaming services like netflix are the last hope for non-blockbuster movies.

Speaking of which, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs on netflix is mostly awesome.


Absolutely, there are a lot of good movies that are free with Netflix and Prime. There are also a lot available for $3-6 on those services.

But DO NOT see "Roma" on Netflix. We saw it in 70mm over the weekend and it was ravishing. Some of the shots have 40, 50, 100, 200 extras. Cuaron fills the screen really well in this movie and it's the kind of movie that's like "yeah, no, you can't always recreate the movie theater experience in your house."

Netflix/rewatch of "Hell or High Water" - that movie is great.

I started watching Fyre Fraud on hulu. Well put together. Fascinating story: Silicon Valley [expletive], the power of girls posting duck face selfies, FOMO, all that stuff. It's basically what would happen if Kim Kardashian had tried to launch herself into the stratosphere by throwing a music festival instead of banging an unnotable singer. Get to see the organizer a bit of [expletive] in the interview as well as the narrative.

However, when I looked to see who had put it together and who some of the talking heads were, I saw that Netflix is also releasing a Fyre Festival movie this week.

I'm not sorry I watched it, but I wish I would have waited to learn which one is better. Won't be surprised to learn it's the Hulu one, but who knows. Can't imagine I really need to watch two of them.

Saving Private Ryan was on TNT again last night. About the third time I watched it, but really never get tired of it.

Just saw it for the first time. Ben Foster is underappreciated.

Word is “Glass” is crap. I won’t let this ruin Unbreakable which I watched recently. It holds up really well.

everything that Taylor Sheridan writes, I'm a big fan of...

Sicario, Sicario 2, Hell or High Water, Wind River, and the TV show Yellowstone on the paramount network

and yes, Ben Foster is awesome...his 2 newest ones I recently saw, he's fantastic in as well; Galveston and Leave No Trace (leave no trace is on amazon prime)
