    Liked it very much! 2 things niggled at me, though: 1) the music. Loved the soundtrack, Brandy was used very well, but on the whole it was overemphasized in the movie. 2) The whole Hasselhoff thing was obviously added in reshoots (look at both Pratt and Saldana's hair), and must have sounded funnier when it was proposed than it actually turned out to be. Rocket (why can't Bradley Cooper just always do this role? Not a fan of anything else with him), Groot, and Yondu were definitely the best parts.

    I finally watched some of the biggies from the last year or so:

    Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children--It was okay. It's clearly missing scenes (was it cut for time, maybe? I dunno), but it was almost free of the Burton trademark scenes/characters. My 11 year old loved it.

    Split-Good show until the end. That was stupid. Shyamalamadingdong should hire someone to wrap up his movies for him--he's screwed it up at the end more than he's gotten it right. McAvoy was incredible, but that's to be expected.

    Logan-Loved it. Period.

    The Boy-silly premise, but I ended up liking the movie. The 'twist' was not telegraphed, which was refreshing.

    I know I watched more while the board was closed, but my brain isn't coughing up names right now :)

    remember the scene in Blade Runner where leon was being tested to see if he was human or not?

    well this brilliant movie takes it one step further.

    it's sci fi - but not really.

    clever and thought provoking, and is always one step ahead of your own thoughts. steady pace, toying with exploitation, and moral issues.

    i recommend it if you like working your endings out, and trying to outthink the characters shouting at the TV "no...don't do that!"

    "let me tell you about my mother"

    You can never overemphasize Brandy!

    Tarzan and His Mate (1934). Hoo boy, they snuck this one past the censors just in time. Maureen O'Sullivan never looked better in her skimpiest Jane outfit ever...

    The Long Goodbye (1973). Robert Altman's slightly updated take on my favorite Raymond Chandler book, with Elliott Gould doing a fine job as Marlowe. I really dug this flick a lot, much more than the first time I saw it. I highly recommend it for anyone who likes wisecracking, down-on-their-luck gumshoes.

    I didn't either, until I watched Hannah and Her Sisters. Put two and two together, did some googling...and I'll be damned.

    I love that part where a drunken Maureen calls her husband that HAIRCUT who walks like a man...

    I loved this one and I think I have posted about it before. I saw this the first time back when it was new (at least new for a US dvd release) and since then, I've watched for movies with the two lead actors, Diego Luna and Gael Bernal. Diego shows up in American movies once in a while. He was in Elysium with Matt Damon and All The Pretty Horses (with Matt Damon too). I'm not sure I've seen Gael in any English speaking movies but he's got a lot of good Spanish language movies. Gael was in a good one called The Motorcycle Diaries, which is a story about Che Guevara (you may not like the POV of the movie but it's still very good). I wish I had paid attention more in Spanish class so I could watch without having to read subtitles.

    Also, Diego and Gael are in another movie together called Rudo y Cursi. It's not as good as Y Tu Mama Tambien but it's pretty good.
