What Movie You Watching?

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023)- I’m sad to report that Marvel has Multiverse Fever. In this movie, I like the core characters and the actors who play them, but hated the setting of this story. Here’s why, Mutliverse Faver tends to come with psychedelic backgrounds. i could handle Dr Strange facing down Dormmamu, and fighting across a Kaleidoscope of city of high rises, in relatively brief sequences. Along the same lines, the quantum realm in Ant-Man was an interesting place to briefly visit, but not spend an entire story in similiar to the Multiverse of Madness which I also disliked. Consequently this franchise loses some of it’s Earth bound quaintness Imo. How do I make my final judgement, can I watch such a movie multiple times? The answer here is no. :(


Checking into House Party
Aspiring club promoters and best buds Damon and Kevin are barely keeping things together. Out of money, down on their luck and about to lose the roofs over their heads—and freshly fired from their low-lift jobs as house cleaners—the pair needs a huge windfall to make their problems go away. In a ‘what the hell?’ move, they decide to host the party of the year at an exclusive mansion, the site of their last cleaning job, which just happens to belong to none other than LeBron James. No permission? No problem. What could go wrong?

Checking into Casino
In early-1970s Las Vegas, Sam "Ace" Rothstein gets tapped by his bosses to head the Tangiers Casino. At first, he's a great success in the job, but over the years, problems with his loose-cannon enforcer Nicky Santoro, his ex-hustler wife Ginger, her con-artist ex Lester Diamond and a handful of corrupt politicians put Sam in ever-increasing danger.

Above Suspicion (2021)- Watched on Amazon. The story of an FBI agent and his informant. It got terrible audience and critic reviews, it did not feel coherent, and it’s a somber look at small town Kentucky white low income society, not to imply that all Southern small town society is like this. One bright light is Emilia Clarke does a great job with her portrayal, Southern accent and her narration pulled me in at the start. The story telling just felt haphazard and disjointed.

Checking into The Hateful Eight
In the dead of a Wyoming winter, a bounty hunter and his prisoner find shelter in a cabin currently inhabited by a collection of nefarious characters.
The Magnificint Seven (2016)- Did not see this in the theater, let it slip by as just another remake, a remake of an excellent 1960 film by the same name, which was a remake of an excellent 1954 movie, Seven Samurai. This version was about a town in the USWest being abused by a rich industrialist. I’ll call it good and watchable, beautiful US Western scenery, while being a bit over the top, with some of the amazing shots that are made, and the numbers of hombres required to be killed, explosives help. :) I liked the cast, especially Chris Pratt who can inject humor while being dramaticallyq serious.

I’ll also take this opportunity to recommend Shane (1954) a good story about the cattlemen vs the settlers for a 10 second gun fight, and Unforgiven (1992) a depiction of just how sloppy gun fights more likely could be.

Last night I saw "Skyfall" movie. It is a 2012 James Bond film that follows Bond as he investigates an attack on MI6 and faces a dangerous new enemy, Raoul Silva. Bond must confront Silva, who has a personal vendetta against M, leading to a final showdown at Bond's childhood home in Scotland. The movie explores complex relationships between Bond, M, and their enemies.

Interesting because Silva claims M betrayed and abandoned him, as a MI6 agent, while she says he was basically rogue or dirty, I forget which, and that was the way the chips fell. Who to believe? :)
Right now I am watching Money heist and Toko is my favorite character. If you do not watch this movie I will highly recommend you this movie.
Free Guy (2021)- In a massive multiplayer online (MMO) game, based in Free City with daily mayhem, a non-player character (NPC) gains self awareness as a conflict brews about the direction the game should take between the software developer and the a-hole boss/owner Taika Waititi. I did not care for him in this role, too good of a job being a shallow one dimensional, prick. While Ryan Reynolds seems to be eternally likable. The movie is not something I would own, but to be fair, I should give it a second watch. :)

Checking into Hot Tub Time Machine
Four pals are stuck in a rut in adulthood: Adam has just been dumped, Lou is a hopeless party animal, Craig is a henpecked husband, and Jacob does nothing but play video games in his basement. But they get a chance to brighten their future by changing their past after a night of heavy drinking in a ski-resort hot tub results in their waking up in 1986.
This movie was so funny. But I don't remember much of it, I need to re-watch it. Recently I watched The wedding singer, and role models. They were worth the watch imo
