Movie Bob says otherwise  :-\

If I waxed rhapsodical about the Passion of the Christ (a flawed but genuinely artistic film) or the God is Not Dead films (flawed and not particularly artistic films -- both examples chosen partly because Bob loathes them ;) ), you might suspect, also given my strong ideological beliefs, that I'm letting my ideology get the better of my critical judgment. And Bob has shown increasing SJW partisanship over the years.

I honestly can't imagine him giving this movie a meh rating and calling down upon himself the fury of social shaming, the likes of which were thrown at the guy who broke the 100% tomatorating for a similarly meh review.

(Edited to clarify: I watched MovieBob's review a few days ago when he first released it.)
On the otherhand - he hated 3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - a film I thought was fantastic. It's funny how you mentioned SJW...because it was that kind of perspective that showed right through in his review of 3 Billboards. Slamming the film for even briefly mentioning rape, drugs, bad police blah, blah, blah.

So I'm not saying he's right or wrong - I was putting an alternative on the boards.

I thought Black Panther was good - edging on very good - but I didn't think it was as good as he made out. I would put 3 Billboards way ahead of this movie if I had to go and see either again.

Black Panther - 6.5
3 Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - 8

Not sure why it hadn't occurred to me earlier, but, I started hyperlinking the winners of each year's Bracket to the Round of 16 Bracket for that year.  Kind of give you a refresher on what each song had to overcome to win that year.  It's gonna take a minute, so, I'll be doing that over the next few days.  Hope you find it helpful :)

Neither of the Cloverfield sequels have the shaky cam nonsense. That was one of the reasons I intensely disliked the first movie.

Same.

First one - too much damn shaky cam.  Didn't even like shaky cam when ppl fawned over it in Blair Witch.  :pullhair:

I thought 10 Cloverfield Lane was great.


The new ostensibly "Cloverfield" one on Netflix?   ~~>

The shaky cam doesn't really bother me, so I enjoyed the first Cloverfield. And yes AFAIK there are two new additional movies in production right now.

How smug all you indoor working people are :P

Hell yeah I'm smug. I used to work outdoors a lot. :)

So you graduated to a life of ripping off your employer indoors? ;)


How smug all you indoor working people are :P

Now I know you're not talking about me!


You would be if you could be ;)

Into the Badlands.  Set in a post apocalyptic world, where Barons have carved out a niche and outlawed guns.  The Baron's keep forces of highly trained fighters, called Clippers, and jockey for position.  I can't say that there isn't a bit of cheese factor for me, but, there are at least two martial arts fights per episode and they are well choreographed.  The downside is that Netflix only has the first season of 6 episodes and it ends in a cliffhanger.  AMC has made and shown the second season and the third will premier sometime this month.  I am hoping that the third season being out will allow Netflix to pick up the second.
