Rocky Balboa

I (and my Lady) really enjoyed it. I think it may be overlooked by a lot of people who think it's just "Rocky 6" and more of the same old same old. What we find here is an older and far sadder Rocky. His wife passed away, his son has distanced himself from his father and Rocky running a restaurant where he tells diners stories of his glory days. It's a story of regret and yearning. Rebirth and redemption.

My understanding is that Stallone felt terrible about Rocky 5 and how it made his fans feel. Making Balboa to cap off the series in a better and more satisfying way. He was done with Rocky after this ........ and then someone wrote Creed! lol

All in all a great flick for Rocky fans and probably the second or third best in the series (the first being the best).

I thought Rocky Balboa was good. I still need to see Creed.

Last move I saw was Deadpool, and I loved it.

Point Break -

Enjoyed it a lot. I will always love the original more (Gary Busey forever!) but the adrenaline rush was fun!
The plot and characters I didn't really connect with that well. Maybe I am just biased.
Bodhi's character especially seemed to fall flat compared to Swayze's portrayal...

I'm fairly sure the last actual movie I watched was Deadpool, as well. I'm not counting any of the Thomas the Tank Engine "movies" my child has made me watch since then.

I have watched Tropic Thunder, Full Metal Jacket, and From Heaven and Earth.

As you can see I am working on my master degree in which I use Vietnam Movies to help teach the Vietnam War. It is a great excuse to watch movies and listen to good music.

In the theater; 10 Cloverfield Lane

It was a good, slow burn psychological thriller with a very weird ending... John Goodman was fantastic, and the actual technical merits of the film making were great.

Other than that I haven't watched much lately... still trying to catch up on my TV. ;)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I've seen it 10 times now and seeing as the Blu Ray has made it's way onto several sites which will not be names, I'll probably watch it a hell of a lot more.

Pee Wee's Big Holiday

ahahahahahahaha what a blast. if you're a fan you will NOT be disappointed - it's even better than Big Top Pee Wee. you can just feel the love that Paul Reubens has for the character. it's silly with a level of humor than adults can enjoy while at the same time, it touches the kid inside.

and honestly there is a scene with a simple balloon that is one of the funniest things i've seen in ANY movie, EVER. if you see it, and used to do the same thing with balloons, i know you'll be right with me on this... ;)

just finished that whole Superman vs Batman Zach Snyder deal....

meh. wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. i'm not a fan of Snyder and don't believe he knows how to direct action AT ALL. and then it's like the editors don't know what to do with the fight scenes that he gets. he's stuck on this slow-mo, over-indulgent-effects scenes that stink of his whole "music video" aesthetic. the only thing i ever really liked that has his name on it is The Owls of Gahoole.

that said, at least it was coherent this time (Man of Steel was just a mess...seriously. a mess).
Spoiler: show
the fight between S&B was actually really great. i must admit. i enjoyed it apart from the hideous direction.
Wonder Woman was just kickass...really looking forward to her film now.
and overall a decent setup for Justice League...


i'm still a Marvel gal though ;)

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

Sooo painfully and tragically romantic and beautiful. Trite sometimes, but lovely nonetheless. 7.5/10
