    Mary Queen of Scots. Meh. The acting and production were both superb, but the screenplay didn't do very good a job of telling a coherent story. If I didn't know the story already going in, I'd have had a bit of a hard time making heads or tails of it.

    DD and I saw Once Upon A Deadpool. It was basically a re-hash of Deadpool 2 but it was still funny and we both enjoyed it. We're going to see Bumblebee tomorrow.

    George: The Favourite looks really good!

    I havent gone back to see any other mentions but the wife and I really enjoyed Instant Family and The Green Book. Both, very different but very well written, very well directed with strong lead and supporting roles.

    The Green Book is on my list of Things To See. I might go tomorrow (NYD); I am hunkering down in the apartment for NYE.

    Bumblebee was surprisingly good! I'm not a Transformer fan (very surprised to learn that my DD is!).

    Bohemian Rhapsody winning last night seemed strange to me, given the critics reaction to the film.

    I decided to look up aggregated scores of recent winning films. On Metacritic, the winners over the last ten years have usually had a score over 80 and many had scores in the high 90's. The lowest scoring winning film over the ten years was The Revenant with a score of 76. Bohemian Rhapsody's score of 49 is very low, even for a nominee.

    I saw Mary Poppins Returns on Saturday and loved it! DD and I saw the animated Spider-Man movie on Sunday. The animation was awesome!

    Rented Bladerunner 2048 the other night. I’m a fan of the original and was impressed for the first half of the film. Sadly, I found Harrison Ford didn’t quite fit in his own role as Decker, albeit 30 some odd years older. Seemed to have some significant editing gaps as well. Nevertheless, if you liked the original you may like the sequel. They did do a great job with the look and feel of the first film. I recommend.

    Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse - The animation was wonderful and spot-on for comic book lovers. The story line was very entertaining and endearing. A great example of how to seamlessly blend music into the movie. We'll likely see it again before it leaves the theater.

    We also saw Ralph Breaks the Internet a few weeks ago. Also enjoyed this one. The princess scene is priceless. The car chases are well choreographed. There seemed to be a LOT of jokes targeted to parents - maybe it was just me. There were several laugh-out-loud moments for me. I mean OUT LOUD. Embarrassingly loud.

    But if I had to pick between the two, I'd go see Spider-man again.

    Rami Malek's performance was amazing. The music, as you might expect, was fantastic. The movie itself was not great, both for how it was made as well as the greater controversy of sidestepping/underplaying Freddie Mercury's sexuality for most of the movie. Entertaining, but hardly worthy of a nomination, let alone a win. Soundtrack is highly recommended, though.

    This was SO good. The various styles of animation, woven together; the music; the humor; the whole concept. It made me wonder what Solo might have been like if Lord/Miller were able to finish that film.

    Agreed! We've already used "I can't understand you... you must be from the other studio" more than once with the kids when they are whining...

    This happens A LOT when DD and I go to the movies. There are times I'd swear we're the only ones laughing. And, sometimes, we are embarrassingly loud too! I've decided we're the only ones in the theater with a sense of humor.

    This is similar to what I had heard and read before awards shows/nominations, different versions of "Rami was great but the movie wasn't". So, Rami winning didn't surprise me but the movie winning didn't make sense to me.

    I guess there are unexpected winners most years, so maybe this is the big one this year.

    Mary Poppins Returns was better than I expected. I thought Emily Blunt played a very convincing Mary Poppins, and I was happily transported back to the familiar neighborhoods. The best part was hearing the strains of the original music, played during certain scenes. The nostalgia was great, while it didn't interfere with the new story, for the kids that don't know the first movie.
    The best part of all, was seeing Dick Van Dyke enjoying himself in his scene.
    I also really loved that they were able to get Angela Lansbury for a song. She has such a lovely voice.

    Russian Doll. While not a movie, seeing as it is only eight 30 minutes episodes long, it is about the length of a long movie.

    I went in knowing nothing about the show but really loved it.

    The tribute to Stan Lee in Captain Marvel was great.

    I liked the movie but I will avoid specifics considering it's still new.

    Same here. I had heard it was good but knew nothing and didn't even realize it was a 30 minute show until the first episode was over. It was strange and hilarious. We loved it.

    It is very rare for us to rewatch a show but we have already agreed to rewatch it again soon.
