Ready Player One (2018) - If it’s Spielberg, I’m there. Been excited about this for awhile, at least until recently when it became clear that this would be some sort of reference fest. Fortunately, the references are mostly background stuff, but occasionally they are legitimately distracting, and with little purpose to the narrative. Still, an incredibly fun trip with some really cool set pieces. If it didn’t fumble its final message, I would have really loved it. Alas. B

Just saw this, and I agree with you. Ending was not well done for sure. But managed to be fun most of the entire runtime.

The final set piece was a blast though.

Oceans Eleven (2001)

Overrated. It’s fun and has a star-studded cast, ultimately offering exactly what the original offers, minus the funny twist at the end.

Only God Forgives (2013)

This might have been too abstract for my liking without enough substance.

Drive was highly stylized, slow paced, and artsy, but it all elevated an compelling story that had very interesting characters.

This movie just felt like it did not have that necessary foundation to build on. I’d love to hear what others thought of this as I gather from online discussions, that this film was highly divisive.

Office Space

Watched it with some friends very fucked up. Loved it, like oh my is this movie my life. I need to watch it again because we weren’t really paying attention to it so I missed alot of it. But what I saw I loved.

Quite a few balls, but my viewing was too inconclusive to give a definite number.

How was this your first time seeing office space?

I just really felt like having a nice six hour binge of these. Still a wonderful adventure.

^You missed one.

Hot Shots! (1991) - Not as clever or inventive as Airplane! or Top Secret!, but still funny enough with a few pretty good gags. B-

You Were Never Really Here (2018) - Engrossing from start to finish with, of course, an amazing performance from the great Joaquin Phoenix. Wish some of the motivations were a bit less opaque, but otherwise, fantastic. B+

Cloak & Dagger (1984) - Fun little flick. Cool to see Henry Thomas prove that E.T. wasn’t a fluke. B

Blockers (2018) - Didn’t expect this to be any good but was pleasantly surprised. Pretty funny throughout, and much more thoughtful when it comes to the characters and their dynamics than one would have thought. Not bad at all. B

The Karate Kid Part II (1986) - In some ways better than the first, though in some ways quite a bit worse. Mainly, Daniel feels pretty extraneous to the whole thing which makes the climax ultimately feel pretty tacked on. B-

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) - There are some obvious issues here from a storytelling perspective, but mostly all those are inherent to the very concept of the film. That said, these constraints are actually fairly easy to put aside and just enjoy the film for what it is. It’s ultimately pretty impressive considering, and very fun throughout. B+
