Saw Black Panther this weekend. I thought it was good but not as great as the hype made it out to be. 7.5/10

The Great Wall -6.5/10 - better than expected. Given the hype, I was expecting something along the lines of John Wayne doing Gengis Khan, fortunately not the case.

Was that the thing with Matt Damon, Willem Dafoe, and the weird reptilian creatures with eyes on their shoulders?

Black Panther - 7/10

I was pretty excited for this one, since it's the movie before Infinity War, and fortunately it was pretty entertaining. There was a bit of flashiness I don't care for so much, but otherwise a solid movie.



The Outsider (Netflix, 2017) - 6.5/10

Fairly standard "fish out of water" movie set in 1950s Japan where Jared Leto finds himself joining the Yakuza.

That's pretty generous. I saw it and felt bad for Matt Damon. It had the feel of a "he must need the paycheck" movie.

I don't disagree. But going in assuming that Damon was cast as a Chinese general, I was pleasantly surprised.. Besides, the armies (and aliens) worked together... and there were even women in charge. How often do you see that?

Valkyrie (2008) - IMDb
9/10
It is the story of the most well-known attempt to assasinate Hitler.
In reading up on the real history of it, the film was apparently very accurate with the facts.

One surprise after seeing it was when I discovered Eddie Izzard was in it, but I never recognized him.
Hell, he was wearing men's clothes!

Icarus - It felt like it was 2 different movies. The first half hour was about how the guy decided to try doping without getting caught, but then that story just kind of disappeared. I get why it was included as it was the entre into the story, and it sort of stopped when he got into the more interesting developments, but it felt like he could have just been more clear about how it didn't work for him (or maybe it would have had he remembered to charge his Di2 batteries or whatever. Did he declare his doping? Choose to sit out the next 2 years? Did he feel it was worthwhile? That part just felt unfinished.

Documentary of the head of the Russian Anti-Doping lab who defected to the US, then told the US government and the NYTimes exactly how the Russians were evading the anti-doping
Finally watched this... Movie elements weren't that great, but an amazing story.

The Shout -- 7/10
Alan Bates, Susannah York, John Hurt. Great cast. Very '70s feel, probably too slow and quiet for contemporary younger audiences. I'd seen it in bits and pieces before but it works better without interruptions to get into the mood. There's no pat resolution and you're never certain whether any of the events described by the Bates character(s) really happened.

The Friends of Eddie Coyle -- 8/10
Second or third time I've watched it. First was back in the 1970s after having read the book. Ellmore Leonard described it as one of the great American crime novels. The movie is very faithful to the book, and a classic example of 1970s grim noir. Not as immediately appealing as contemporaries like The French Connection because it lacks any genuinely likable characters (other, perhaps, than Coyle's wife). One of Robert Mitchum's best performances, possibly because he reins it way in and doesn't seem to perform at all. He just is that character.

I found myself watching The Agony And The Ecstasy (1965) on cable TV last night. Charlton Heston as Michelangelo and Rex Harrison as Pope Julius. Cheesy and campy as anything Heston has ever done, and absolutely no surprises...other than that someone thought they could milk an entire two hour movie out of this story line. 6/10

Big Sick, 8/10. Pretty great. A lot in there for anyone with an overbearing family not just those with a culture of arranged marriage...

Although, spoiler alert, he decides to come out of his shell after developing a relationship with her parents while she's in a coma, and that kind of top-down relationship reconstruction does not seem so different from an arranged marriage after all...
