I saw Platoon the other night for the first time in probably a decade. Still engaging, holds up well. And what a cast! 8/10

Fury 7 out of 10...the one tank scene at the end seemed a little unrealistic

I watched Get Out over the weekend and didn't get what all the fuss was about. Sure, it was well executed and kind of fun, if a bit predictable, but so many people who've discussed it in my presence have seemed to think it was some transcendent experience. I just don't get it. I mean I'd probably give it a 6-7 out of 10 (maybe I'd go a bit higher if I enjoyed the genre more), but a lot of my students seemed to think it was at least a 10/10 movie.

The Man Who Knew Infinity (on Netflix), about the Indian mathematical prodigy S. Ramadijan (sp.?). I though with Jeremy Irons, Toby Jones, and Dev Patel that this would be an excellent movie. Nope. It felt as though they were trying to address too much, and would have greatly benefited from better editing. I already knew how the story was going to end, so I turned it off about 3/4 of the way through. Shame, it could have been a fascinating movie.

Dances with Wolves (1990)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099348/

It was a film I never got around to seeing previously, because it came out while I was struggling through engineering school.
9/10

ETA: For those who have already seen it, here is a bit of humor from "The Red Green Show" a few years later:

The Age of Adaline - 6.5/10 A pretty, entirely predictable movie... and I completely understand what Ryan Reynolds sees in Blake Lively

Watched a documentary called In The Name of Peace: John Hume in America at the theater last night. It was a special showing that got our mayor, the UK and Irish Consulate to appear. It is about a forgotten contemporary figure in Irish politics that was instrumental in getting the violence stopped in N. Ireland. Hume recognized that the key was to get the U.S. involved to pressure the UK. Many interviews with former U.S. Presidents and Senators etc. Good if you like documentaries.
