Just finished Zombieland for the nostalgias -- still had me rolling
Rating: 8/10

Zombieland 2 -- had me cackling! not really an improvement on #1...but more of an update (considering they were 10 years apart)

Don't think I watched part 2 yet.

All Day and all Night - on Netflix. Young black man commits a murder and has to deal with the consequences. Shows his life story and how he got to that point. Nothing new or special but I enjoyed it. I actually just watched it.

TV Shows too or new thread?

Watched Unbelievable, it's a show about finding a serial rapist. It's titled 'Unbelievable' as a double meaning I think - the main victim wasn't believed, and it's intended to spark outrage. It was... unbelievable in that I was incapable of believing people would consciously make the decisions they did. Like, I understand that you might have a cop who acts like one of the shitty cops did. You might have a nurse with no bedside manner. You might have idiot counselors who don't actually understand how to help or talk to you. You might have had parents who made you eat dog food so you were taken and in foster care all your life. You might have someone who thinks you don't act appropriately (in this case... TWO of the foster moms, i.e. all of the foster moms that were in the show). Those are all things that happen in real life... but all of them to the same person?

Then there were several inconsistencies that the only reason I can find for them is just to spark outrage in the viewer. My SO was getting mad while she watched and I had to remind her that they're only doing it this way to piss her off.

It does an OK job in that it shows an empathetic response too, how you can talk with and support someone, and things like why their behavior isn't logical. It had decent acting for the most part. A lot of people say it's a great show, but I don't really see it. I'd rather watch the Killing again.

Currently watching Double Tap...always awkward when a child actress goes from being a child to full fledged adult. It's like, "Oh...shit...now she has boobs. Awkward."

Molly's Game - Netflix movie about Molly Bloom. Movie is entertaining until you realize that it's all a giant "look at me" thing, then you regret spending your time on it. 3/10.

Alita Battle Angel

Good movie with a strong female lead. Also...I genuinely appreciate that for her to be strong...all of the supporting men didn't have to be incompetent oafs....The story was kinda predictable...but the special effects and visuals was on some avatar level (which makes sense consider James Cameron was involved)

Rating: 7/10. Enjoyable, but I wouldnt rewatch it

Except her love interest...that dude was so god damn annoying. I always joke that if androids get to that level human women are done...lol.

But I enjoyed it as for because she was strong, the men weren't all idiots and she was strong and feminine.

I was supposed to watch Alita with my sister a couple weeks ago. That movie is on my to do list.

The Wrong Missy

An Adam Sandler movie with no Adam Sandler...but plenty of his juvenile humor
...nice little throwback to a simpler time, that made me chuckle quite a bit.....but still a stupid movie
Rating: 6/10
