Maverick


10/10


What a damn awesome movie. It’s rare to have anything these days that pretty much everyone loves and no one complains about. Maverick is easily on that list.

My favorite movie in a long time. And when they announced it I rolled my eyes. Pretty incredible what Tom and the production team pulled off. It’s so damn good.

Too late…..I’ve heard from probably 75-100 different people about this movie. All in agreement. I’ve not heard a single “eh, wasn’t as good as I hoped or didn’t really like it”

My dad rags on every movie ever, nearly no movie is good (nearly). He, like me, reads a ton of books and just rags on most movies.


He liked the flight scenes in the original Top Gun as he is a big time war history buff and reads every book he can ever find on anything and everything military.


I am going to drag him to the theatre this weekend to see Maverick.


I am going tonight to see Thor Love and Thunder. Will report back later.

Make sure he sees Road House.  Hard to see what’s not to like about that.

For reference I thought Thor Ragnorok was 7/10, very good movie while the first two Thor’s were like 2s or maybe 3s. 


Thor Love and Thunder 6.5/10. 


It’s even more of a comedy than Ragnorok is, so be ready for that.


Basically if Gorr the God Butcher is on the screen is serious (Bale does this role justice), if he isn’t it’s a comedy movie.

I liked it slightly more than you (7.5/10). Bale does do a good job with Gorr, that man can lift any role. I was pleased that Taika Waititi left some things to be pretty accurate to the source while still trying to tell Thor's story like he wanted to. The reveal at the mid-credit scene was the one moment that made me very very happy.

My daughter and I watched The Mist the other day solely because I wanted her to be scarred by the ending of a movie. 6/10

If you are a horror movie fan, like myself, don't waste your time on the last Halloween installment, "Halloween Ends." Terribly disappointing. If you have to see it, fast forward to the last 15 minutes as you'll fall asleep through the rest of it.

It cannot be worse than Kills. 

And after the 2018 installment totally owned, this is disappointing

It's worse. It's like the Friday the 13th where Jason was actually the paramedic whose son got killed or Halloween 3 Season of the Witch bad.

Halloween II. Solid sequel. Haven’t seen in about 10 years. Man, horror has gone downhill.

Paterno on HBO.  I'd call it a solid 8/10.  Al Pacino nails Paterno as a character.  The film doesn't answer the ultimate question of what Paterno was thinking.  But it shows the cost of the collective enabling of Sandusky.  Very well made film.  Again, Al Pacino is fantastic.

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, baby!!!

I mean, it's a very generic slasher that just happens to have dudes dressed up to look somewhat like Pooh and Piglet, but I just love the concept of waiting for stuff to go public domain so you can turn beloved childhood characters into serial killers. Bonus points for my friend and I having the foresight to bring a flask into the theater for added enjoyment of the proceedings.

7/10 for being dumb fun entertainment that was everything I was expecting. Both good and bad -- by the end of it, I was hoping for the character of Christopher Robin to die horribly since the dude playing him kind of sucked at the whole acting thing.
