Spiderman: Homecoming - A- - A funny, high school based Peter Parker tale. My teens liked it more than I did. To me it felt the most like "Spiderman" since early Tobey Maguire.

Dunkirk - A - A fast paced war movie. I really need to see it again.

Wonder Woman. Pretty good, but it didn't blow me away like I'd been hearing people raving about. But still, it was pretty good.

Collateral Beauty. Holy box of Kleenex, Batman. This one was fantastic. And what a tear-jerker. Whoa. If this one doesn't yank on the old heart strings, you don't have a heart.
Crikey. I forgot what my old signature was about. :roll:

Back again I am, here from the days of old, the tides so bold...September, 1998 oh my how the years have rolled.

The Lobster

Hmmmm....easily one of the strangest films I've ever seen. I really dug it, but was taken aback at how twisted it got at several points. The story pretty much lends itself to that, I suppose, but it still rightly shocked more than once. I also was expecting a bit more humor, but that was ok. The humor it did have delivered quite well.

4/5 stars

IT (2017) - B
I enjoyed it. Not really scary per se but that's not exactly the point of the story. Kids were all good and meshed well together. Pennywise was good - very different from the Tim Curry version which was to be expected.

Looking forward to the sequel to finish out the story.

Alien: Covenant - B

The dumb people are a little less dumb then they were in Prometheus. Not the best of the franchise, but far from the worst. I am biased because I was mostly just happy to see a xenomorph again.

I've watched alot of movies latley.

King Kong:Skull Island - It was different which was fresh for a change and I liked it

Alien Covenant - I liked Prometheus and it had its moments, but that doesn't mean it wasn't flawed and the same goes for Covenant. I liked it a bit more than Prometheus. Not sure what people are exactly expecting because it is about origins among other things, so even though they aren't great as the original Alien and Aliens;they sure aren't as bad as those crap movies such as;Alien vs Predator for example.

CHips - Man this movie was bad. Had a few funny dialogue moments but over it was so disjointed

Fate and the Furious - This movie as well as the one's leading up to this one is just getting sillier to the point of parody.

Snatched with Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn - I thought it was funny and a crazy adventure. Come on it's Goldie Hawn...

A Dog's Purpose - Man this movie almost made me have dust in my eyes. If you like dogs I think you will enjoy this movie. Seriously

Sleepless starring Jaimie Foxx - I like Jaimie Foxx and this was an ok movie. Pretty intense but felt flat or something.

Baby Driver - I went to the theater to see this one awhile back. Starring Kevin Spacey, this movie is so high on speed and gets your adrenalin pumping. It's a very fun and different type of movie where you root for the main guy at all costs. For sure an A.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind - A

Took the kids to see the 40th anniversary showing. I have to say its been a while since I had watched the theatrical cut. I have to say the pacing is better than the Special Edition, and the Director's Cut. Also, it was beautiful on the big screen.
