Thor Ragnarok: B+ really enjoyed it, though it was absolutely ridiculous as well. Probably gets the highest mark a superhero film can get from me. Recognised a lot of New Zealand faces in the film. Humour was very well executed!

Currently I am watching some Russian cop drama on Netflix that is pretty good called The Method. While it is all subtitles and there is some poetic license I really kind of like this serial killer formula show from Russia. Check it OUT!

Bright - eh, it was okay. I liked the concept. And there were some good funny things like the Orcs all wearing 79 jerseys. Why do elfs always get the "stick in the mud prissy" label?

This thread is a good example of why mega threads are stupid, though. They actively discourage conversation.

I liked The Irishman a lot.  I'd give it a B+.

I also thought the de-aging effects were awesome.  There were maybe only two or three shots that I even remembered that it was a thing and didn't believe those guys weren't playing younger versions of themselves.

I actually really liked the movie. The only issue I really noticed with the de-aging effects, were when Robert and Pesci first met and they were working on the truck. Robert looked a little off. Great movie, a little sick to my stomach that movie cost $250mil, and I hope Pesci and DeNiro get some awards recognition because of it.

I also really enjoyed Ray Romano. Wish there was more of him in there. The comedian guy (dont remember his name) that played the gangster Joey was pretty great too.

The de-aging worked much much better on Pesci and Pacino than on DeNiro. It just never looked right on him.

What kind of ending were you expecting? We all die sad and alone if time is our eventual killer.

It was sarcasm more than anything. it's a scorsese film. i expected it. i remember before even sitting down and watching it, thinking 'a 3.5 hour long movie? wonder what kind of bs ending i'm going to get from scorsese this time?'

I generally enjoy his films. Gangs of New York is probably my favorite Scorsese flick. Hugo is one of me and my son's go to movies we watch around christmas time. (just feels like a christmas movie)  But i can also not like everything he does. Great film, Pesci deserves an Oscar nom.

Is it just me or did Pacino feel short or look short? I can't put in words but he's definitely smaller in stature than I remember.

You still can! I'm not sure the way I process and evaluate entertainment tracks v. well w/the way everybody else does; there's obviously a great deal of overlap but things about stories that ruin or elevate them for me will either go unnoticed or have inverted valences for others. As always, and apropos enough for this particular flick, your mileage may vary!
