You've clearly never watched Sexy Beast.

The man has been brilliant in so many movies!   Graham is clueless.

I watch myself in the mirror every day.

He was good in Schindler's List, though i wouldn't say great, even if it was a great movie.

I want to love his other performances i've seen of his but I just don't.

He has only been nominated for 5 Oscars since that movie in the 80s, one just last year and a whole whack of Golden Globes...

Art is subjective.  It's my opinion.  Awards for art, including awards show, are absolutely meaningless.

Being clueless is not an opinion.

Your posting history on this forum says otherwise.  Zing!

I'm sorry my subjective opinion of art is not up to your clearly far superior standards of taste, art Stalin.

The Midnight Sky

Directed and starred in by George Clooney.

I liked this sci-fi.  Available on Netflix.  Itís about an apocalypse on Earth and a dying scientist that stays behind to warn the crews of returning space missions.  But more than that, it contemplates whatís left at the end of the world and a persons lifeís work and the sacrifices that might go along with it.

It has some pacing problems...  and relies a bit too much on disaster after disaster...  they donít hurt the movie, necessarily, but I donít think they helped the plot.  But they are visually quite stunning and well done.  They do add tension, but Iím not sure that extra tension was necessary given the main plot line. 

The ending was satisfying.

Things Heard and Scene

This falls between 'Classic Horror' and 'Boring Failure'... basically a very boring and tropey horror film.  The acting and direction make it watchable but it's only worth your time if you are starving for some haunts.  2 1/2 stars, generously.

Oh wow. I think I've seen pretty much every David Lynch film in the theater except for the first three that I caught on video

Ah, sorry, I thought this was a "last movie watched" type of thread.  That wasn't much of a review.

It's only the second movie I ever watched that was made by Lynch.  Blue Velvet being the other one, a long time ago.  I remember enjoying that one too.

Lindsey's neice and nephew were here to visit, and we took them to see Jungle Cruise, starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.

It was good family-friendly fun. It's set in 1916 or something like that. The Rock is his usual affable self as the captain of a dilapidated tour boat on the Amazon river. Emily Blunt is a plucky English academic determined to investigate an ancient myth called "The Tears of the Moon", which she believes has the potential to revolutionize medicine. But a German prince also wants the Tears of the Moon, to help the war effort.  Nothing life changing in any of this, but if you have to entertain some kids, this will do the trick.  And Emily Blunt is so cute.   

Musical highlight: an enchanting instrumental version of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" at the beginning of the film as they explain the legend of the Tears of The Moon.

They grow up so fast. At least by living in Toronto you don't have to dread him eventually moving out.

GREEN BOOK

Nothing wrong with the movie but something wrong in me.  I want to scream at these Hollywood feelgood racial reconciliation sessions.

Viggo Mortensen is a revelation.  The actors and the design and the story was a delight.  Old school.

Still didn't like it.

You will be happy to know that the real-life family of Don Shirley (the musician portrayed in the film) have strongly criticized the movie for its inaccuracy.

The movie was based on a book written by the family of Tony Lip. But according to some, it greatly over-emphasized the roll that he played in Don Shirley's life.
