Thought I'd post this here until I hear we're doing it somewhere else....

Post the name of the latest movie you've seen and your rating out of 10.

THE FOUNDER 9/10
Where the hell was that film during the Oscar talks, might be my 2nd favorite of 2017 after Billboards, sure it's your typical 'wags-to-riches' business-driven success stories with a few dilemmas that force the protagonist to cut a few corners but we're talking of McDonald's stories and it's entertaining as hell and Michael Keaton is just perfect (dammit, his Oscar snub was a shame)... I drank the whole film like a delicious milk-shake, if you except a few clichéd moments, the film provided a countless amount of insights about the way to run a business and make it successful, even the title is provocative because one of the first 'a-ha' moments you get in the beginning is that Keaton didn't build, nor create McDonalds, his name is Kroc (!!!) but at the end, you realize that in many aspects, he was the true Founder of McDonalds, an idea so big and grand that even its creators miss the point... it's one thing to create, but it's another to build the foundations of durability of that creation. That's what the film is about, and it sure delivers! Some would compare it to Fincher's Social Network and they'd be right, I wish the comparison would extend to the Oscar reception.

This is my guilty pleasure of 2019, from the first moment I realized that it is not up to par and not even close to the original that is one of my favorite animated movies but I could not help but love this

I actually may want to see it, as I have not seen the original.  I'm not completely familiar with the story, so I may be more impressed with it, not knowing I'm watching a remake, with nothing to measure it up to.  :)

The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019), 9/10. 

The two leads give Oscar worthy performances but the entire movie will be overlooked by the Academy. Far too small a film. On the other hand, this is perfect for the Independent Spirit Awards:
acting nominations for Jimmie Fails and Jonathan Majors
writing and cinematography and score.
Definitely direction for the first time director, Joe Talbot.

If you have an opportunity to catch this in the theater? I implore you do to so.

This morning:
The Art of Self-Defense (2019), a pitch black comedy that lands on its face in it's attempt at absurdist filmmaking. 6/10.

This afternoon:
The 30th anniversary screening of Glory (1989). Downgraded one point to an 8/10. That dang score is Superman strength heavy-handed.

The Wedding Singer, 4/10.  Some funny moments, great 80's music (Don't Stop Believin' as the wedding march... AWESOME!) but not the best comedy ever.

Dumb and Dumber, 4/10.  Okay, again, some funny scenes, but not entirely my sense of humor.

Amelie 3/10
the use of colors is fine, but oh god, very ridiculous it was even too much for a romantic movie, I understand that many people would have liked this movie and it's fine but for me it was indigestible.

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia 9/10

Yesterday's Target (TV Movie 1996), 1/10.  How didn't this craptastic Daniel Baldwin tv movie kill the  Showtime Network dead? 9/10 for the Rifftax commentary.

It's hilarious how LeVar Burton is in it; playing a baddie and all I know him as is Reading Rainbow and that guy on Christy.  :)
I did not go to the cinema but watched it on DVD and it was a great sad film starring Christopher lee called Jinnah.

Really?  Interesting.  I've been hearing all sorts of reactions to it.  I've never seen the original; my local theater has 4 screens, and Lion King has taken three of them!  :O  They never do that!!!  I've gotta see them both so I can finally form my opinions.  :)

I didn't see the film but I said in my Aladdin's review that "no matter how cute Abu is, you can't make an animal look as expressive as its cartoon version, the example of Iago is even more baffling, this parrot isn't Iago and is an insult to Iago. So that's the real problem with these remakes, the mix of computer-aided animation and live-action can create spectacular results but sometimes, it feels limited."

Maybe it's fun to look at the live-action counterpart of a human character because we can be that expressive, we can go over-the-top but I'm not sure about realistically looking animals behaving like animated characters, Jean-Jacques Annaud did that with "The Bear", the film was fun first but I tired of it very quickly.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015) - 7/10 - I read the movie made a dazzling $ 83 million loss which is a shame because it's not bad at all. I just think the modern generation of moviegoers doesn't feel a lot of affection for the 60s espionage genre.

I never seen the original TV series and have absolutely no interest ever in doing so.

And I found the film fun, endearing and charming. I too was upset with the overall movie going population for letting this one sink into cinema dud history.

I have never been very devoted to Tim Burton's films, however this seemed to me one of his most tolerable movies.

Murder Mystery 1/10

Some friends convinced me to see her telling me that it was not Adam's typical comedy however I discovered that any Adam Sandler movie is terrible.

I think Adam Sandler is kinda talented depending on the movie, but in this one especially he doesn't do anything that any actor couldn't do.  :)
