Endgame, this weekend! I have some friends coming over to see it with me, and the first time we could get in with ok seats was...Sunday morning. Sure would be nice to have 1% of what this movie is going to make over the next several days!

It was a fun movie. We saw it at 3 and the place was packed. They even have a 3am showing tonight.  We bought tickets a few weeks ago.

I agree--maybe the best from Marvel so far. I wonder if it will get an Oscar nomination the way "Return of the King" did.

Don't know why I bothered, curiosity I guess.

Tacky, lame and plastic fluff.

Admittedly, I dozed off at a couple of points while watching this, but I think I saw enough of it to give it a fair shot.  What at first seemed like a gorgeously filmed adaptation of a third rate, contractual obligation story by James M. Cain is instead grossly surreal when one realizes it is a tale of a man who begins a love affair with an older woman only to later fall in love with her step-daughter.  WTF?!?!?  If the creative idea file is so thin nowadays that Mr. Allen has to cannibalize/fictionalize some of the more sordid features of his private life for movie ideas, then perhaps it is time to walk away from the camera.  Or as some one else once said, "Have you no sense of decency,sir?  At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"

That said, Kate Winslet was very, very good.  Jim Belushi seemed to be attempting to show us his version of "Acting", or else he was trying to do a poor John Goodman impersonation.  Either way, one is willing to indulge him up to a point, but then one simply must insist it stop!

Doubt - John Patrick Shanley (2008)

Image result for doubt 2008 blu ray

Masterpiece.

The cover doesn't reveal  two essential contributions - Viola Davis as the mother and the camera of Roger Deakins.

As the man said. A must see film. It's quiet and character based with exceptional cinematography. Worth seeing just for the night time train robbery scene

I don't remember much about it except that I thought it was real, real good.
