    Reasonable cast. I was not expecting much beyond action/adventure and I did not get much beyond that. None of the character development made any difference. At least Statham got the asian chick who's daughter thought she fancied him. Hey! There's a shark who's going to eat folks, and Rainn Wilson dies, so spoiler.

    I’ve not seen this, but I imagine a comparison to Jaws must be made. Wrapped around an adventure, that movie had stellar character development, dynamics and thrilling nicely paced action sequences. And it made me afraid of the ocean. :)

    Needing/wanting a Dirty Harry fix, yesterday we watched Dead Pool (1988), the last in the DH series.
    Seriously outdated, at times silly and even cringeworthy, it still worked. The role fits Clint Eastwood like a glove.

    Jim Carrey's Welcome to the Jungle is a cinematic highlight for the ages, and I'll somewhat passionately argue with anyone who disagrees with that. And I completely agree on your analysis of the film, and need to watch it again myself.

    Watched The Meg and will likely never again, decent cast the rest... Deep Blue Sea is miles better and that's not great either. The Meg isn't all bad plenty of action, just don't take it seriously. As for sharks, as cliched as it is Jaws is yet to be beaten...

    Nothing says "Happy Mother's Day" like Avengers:Endgame:

    Lots of funny parts we laughed out loud at, I liked it, we'll buy it when it comes out on media, but I haven't decided what I think about it overall.

    "When Harry Met Sally." It is in the top 5 list of my all time favorite movies.

    I watched The Mummy Returns yesterday. Not as good as the first, but not too bad either.

    The Graduate (1967)- most excellent comedy/drama/romance story about a young man freshly graduated from college, who is concerned about his future, is given a tip about plastics, the wife of his father’s business partner who seduces him at his homecoming party, and her daughter that he developes romantic feelings for. Music by Simon and Garfunkel.

    One of the most enjoyable movies ever made. And the music was so "right on". An iconic picture of the 60's. a2

    Edgar Wright: Baby Driver (2017)

    Wanted to love it (like I do a couple of Wright's other films, and Wright as a filmmaker in general), didn't end up loving it. It wasn't bad, but although the music was very creatively used, I just don't like films that use that many songs from different artists*. Even if they help move the story along. As said, there was some really clever use of diegetic and non diegetic music, but in the end all of that just takes me out of the film for some reason. I guess I'm more of a fan of soundscapes and "traditional" filmscores, as opposed to the use of individual songs in films. Some really nicely directed, and executed, driving sequences, and the cast was pretty good.

    I did like the fact that Baby used iPods instead of streaming on a smartphone. Read into that if you will.

    *Same thing bothered me in Guardians of the Galaxy, which this film made me think of.

    Holmes and Watson

    I'm not sure what possessed me and persuaded me into thinking this would be remotely good. 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    Watched "Spiderman:Into The Spiderverse" last night. Great flick with loads of Easter Eggs. Highly recommend it!

    My favorite Pixar film and IMHO the cream of the crop from the studio! Holds up really well too. Hard to believe we’re already coming up on this movie’s 16th anniversary.

    I would also include the Toy Story series in this appraisal.

    Monsters Inc. is the animation with that huge wall of doors, right?

    When it comes to Pixar I am not even conflicted. I don't think they have ever put out a bad movies and most have been fantastic. I would be hard pressed to pick a favourite. Next to Apple, it's Steve Job's greatest invention.

    Sweet! I cannot remember how many times I watched those Sinbad movies on the Saturday Matinees on TV when I was a kid! Awesome movies!

    Pride and Prejudice (2005)- A most splendid adaption of the novel. Class, wealth, and women who can’t inherent family estates. Keira Knightly owns this movie. There is one amazing scene at a ball, where the camera flows from room to room to room stopping to focus on a person, then a couple, etc for moments of conversation, perfectly staged.
