    MIB International was one of the worst movies I've seen in years. Both my son and I gave it a 4/10.

    4 sounds fairly generous if it was that bad.

    Season 2 of Dark on Netflix delivered. This is a one of a kind show and so worth the watch. S3 (next year) will be the end as the writers always planned, and I have no idea how they're gonna wrap this thing up.

    But if you're into time travel paradoxes and shows that make you google stuff afterwards, you should watch. It's really, really good.

    It couldn't possibly be worse than "After Earth".

    Marvel released their upcoming Phase 4 at Comic Con this past weekend:

    https://www.theringer.com/movies/201...se-4-comic-con

    The Doctor Strange sequel looks like potentially the best film out of Phase 4. Supposed to be the first horror movie in the MCU. Might have a hard time getting the wife to see it.

    I am hoping Takia Watitti can work his magic with Natalie Portman because she was horrible in both Thor movies. She wielded Mjolnir at Comic Con so it will be the female Thor.

    The biggest surprise was rebooting Blade. Kinda wish Wesley Snipes would have been brought back but it did make sense to go with a younger actor.

    It's been four months since this discussion, but a friend just made me watch a youtube video of some of the best current and upcoming movies - and I thought it went well with this discussion:

    This video was nearly an hour long and contained trailers for: the next Terminator sequel, the next Rambo sequel, the Charlie's Angels remake, the live action version of Mulan, an It! sequel, an Angry Birds sequel, a Chucky remake, a BatMan spinoff, an Addams Family remake, a Zombieland sequel, another Mike Banning secret service sequel, a 47 meters Down sequel, a Downton Abbey big screen adaptation, another X-Men movie, a Bruce Willis comic book sequel, another Star Wars, a Top Gun sequel teaser, and a Jumanji sequel.

    Other than those movies I think the entire video had 2 or 3 trailers for what looked like original films (including one with Will Smith and his son and another with Matt Damon and Christian Bale).

    Hollywood has found it much easier to greenlight movies based on other films that have made them money in the past rather than greenlight original stuff. And 9 times out of 10 IMHO they become shallow films.

    I am going to see the new Tarantino film tomorrow though, so not all hope is lost.

    Saw this today, really enjoyed it. Cliff Booth is a great character.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    It was a little slow, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

    Anyone who is nostalgic for the golden age of hollywood should go see it, lord knows how much they spent on renting 50's and 60's cars for this film.

    If you're expecting a film like Tarantino's previous few films, don't - change your outlook before going. I went with a few friends, and some didn't care for it due to that.

    "Crawl" was fun. Definitely worth seeing if you like semi-cheesy, action, man vs nature movies.
    I'm just going to go find a cash machine.

    So, EpicTV is free for a week on Xfinity. Apparently, they have scoured the world, but mostly the U.S. for unowned cinema, mostly of which has never been presented on television before. About 20-30% of their stock has, but most of it hasn't. It would take 24 hours just to use the info button to peruse what they have in stock one item at a time.

    One I caught last night was a 1920 film directed by a man born in 1872 in Lancaster, Ohio, and written by a man born in 1872 in Hollywood, California. Can't imagine more than 50 people resided in Hollywood, California in 1872, possibly less than 20. Not uncommon for someone to lie about where they were from back then. He only received credit for 5 items as a writer with this being his first year of doing so, at the age of 48. The Director had over 70 credits as a Director, but it looks like he got duped by this guy into giving him the job of writing.

    A skinny Babe Ruth stars in thus 73-minute reel released Sep 19th, 1920, so I'm at odds trying to figure out when it was filmed...off days in New York? Could have completed it in three days. They didn't waste film or time back then. Ruth's hands were what I noticed. They were huge. He also waddled like a duck naturally. He was also broad-chested. Of course, power comes from torque and contact, but clearly Ruth could swing a heavier piece of lumber than most could. He had to have superior vision, obviously, as pitchers then doctored the ball in all types of ways.

    I can't recall ever seeing a 1920 or earlier reel of Ruth and this is 73 minutes, so it's interesting for that reason alone. The "story of Ruth" as the movie proclaims is purely fictional, but it's certainly worth viewing for any baseball fan. The physical quality of the film was preserved somehow.
