I took my whole family to watch Mary Poppins Returns last Sunday. It's awesome. Very strong cast and classic Broadway musical.

^I saw it too, mostly liked it with a few nit-picky complaints. But seeing Dick Van Dyke and Angela Landsbury performing that well (both at age 93) reminded me that today's entertainers cannot hold a candle to what the world used to have.

skip watching First Man. It's long, boring, and forgettable.

Saw Bohemian Rhapsody. Really good. Not the perfect movie some other people think it is. But I enjoyed it and shed a few tears.

Saw it with my brother-in-law who is a musician and knows a lot of people who worked with Freddy Mercury, and he said what they showed in the movie was incredibly tame compared to the stories he's heard.

I've only seen a few indies this year along with movies my wife wants to see like Halloween and Fantastic Beasts. I want to watch Roma when I get time and especially Burning. I think I caught most of these on Amazon so good for them for actually offering movies I want to see. Damn, pretty sure Leave No Trace is on there too.

Liked
----------------------------------
The Favourite
First Reformed
Eight Grade

Meh
-------------------------------
You Were Never Really Here
Hereditary

I liked First Reformed the most. I think it's because it made me think of how I could be like if I lost everything and needed a purpose in life. It also kind of scared the shit out of me thinking about how things might be in 25 years. Ethan Hawke is really good and some of the dialogue is top notch. I will admit the ending left me feeling a little cold but it had it's roots in the way other similar films ended.

Just watched Bad Times at The El Royale last week and was blown away. I think it tops the list for 2018 for me. Highly recommend putting it on the top of the to watch list.

^^It was the movie I was most excited to see this year, still haven't had a chance to (was in theaters when I didn't have time to go, now it's too late). Will catch it on streaming services when it gets there.

^I have zero interest.

I also enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody. And I don't think adding in some extra sex and drug use would've significantly changed the film.

I saw more than I thought....

Really Enjoyed:
A Star Is Born
Bohemian Rhapsody
Green Book
BlakkKlansmen
Avengers: Infinity War
Crazy Rich Asians
Won't You Be My Neighbor

Solid but Overrated:
Black Panther
Eighth Grade
Bird Box
Bumblebee

Solid:
Deadpool 2
Fantastic Beast 2
If Beale Street Could Talk
Ready Player One

Better Than I Expected(I had low expectations):
Solo
Venom
Rampage
Skyscraper
A Simple Favor
King of Thieves

Disappointed:
Ralph Breaks The Internet
A Quiet Place
Creed 2
Overlord

Just Bad:
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Blockers
Maze Runner: The Death Cure
Father Figures
I Feel Pretty

Better than I expected is really just based on my expectations, and for each movie it was a little different. For example I figured Venom would be the same level of bad as Cat Woman, and it wasn't, so it made that category, haha.

^^Other than the butt-chug scene, Blockers was extremely forgettable, and I actually like John Cena in comedies(best part of that shitty Amy Schumer and Lebron movie).

I really enjoyed star is born, but i'm probably a sucker for films like that . Great music and casting.

Definitely enjoyed bad times at the el royale too...had to make sure it wasn't a tarantino flick

Black Klansman was pretty good. Not "Best Picture" good but pretty good.

Roma or The Favourite will probably win since those are the boring foreign films.

The Favourite isn’t a foreign film, and its not boring

I’ve seen 4 of the 8 up for Best Picture, and Vice was my favorite of the 4

The Favourite might be a great movie. But I don't know how it's not considered a foreign film.

^^^^I couldn't shake the fact that it wasn't a Coen Brothers film. Felt like one in almost every way. Soundtrack, dialogue, set pieces. Although bigger fans than me may disagree. I enjoyed it though. I hated that Don Draper was taken out so early.

You misspelled Quentin Tarantino

Soundtrack and setting was very Coen. Storytelling was more Tarantino's style, definitely had some aspects of Four Rooms and Reservoir Dogs (then again, it's not like Tarantino is not the only writer/director to tell a braided narrative out of sequence).

The cinematography though...that one long take with John Hamm in the tunnel looking into each of the rooms while Darlene was singing (or maybe it wasn't one take, but it felt like it)...it was just beautiful. Felt a bit like Alfonso Cuaron blended with a hint of Coen.

Also, it doesn't seem to matter what role he's playing or what movie he's in, but Chris Hemsworth just seems like he's having the time of his life when he's acting.
