I watched "Bird Box" on Netflix and really, really enjoyed it!
I thought it captured a spooky and foreboding post-apocalyptic vibe (if that's what you're into!). The premise was pretty interesting and they don't overexplain it but it makes enough sense to keep you invested. LOTS of intense moments, Sandra Bullock was great (as were many other actors) and it had a very solid ending.
It’s all over the internet now and I’m sick of hearing about it. Wow, invisible monsters that make you kill yourself if you look at them, kind of paradoxical if you ask me. I’m not degrading on the film as I have not seen it, it’s just that it’s viralarity has shoved it in everyone’s face.
I used to love watching all the Ralph Byrd DT films on TV when I was a kid. I really think Dick Tracy can be a good TV show were someone to develop it. At the time when Law & Order premiered in the 90s, I thought Chris Noth would have made for a great Tracy.
OOHHH - I remember seeing those in the old days - I think I was 10 or 11 - they were old then - IMDB says 1974 for the first one - I loved them. Where'd you watch? Netflix? I'll try to find them. Thanks for the tip.
Well, I'm one of the ones that has been happy with the last two movies, but my hubby was not a big fan of Last Jedi and he thought Han Solo was better. Like I said it's nice backstory. Give it a go and let me know what you thought.
Mowgli, a Netflix take on Kipling's "Jungle Story" genre. We liked it. Not a bad way to spend movie time. Don't expect it to follow precisely in the heels of the original story or the latest Disney version.
Ex Machina. Very promising, very engaging (at least for me - Grandma was more meh, and it does take a while to get into gear), but it didn't really deliver at the end. Entertained, then somewhat disappointed.
The Equalizer 2. Denzel does a very rare sequel and carries it off nicely. It's pretty brutal, enough to take some of the entertainment edge off for us, and there's a discordant little thing toward the end. But overall, we enjoyed it. If you liked the first (and we did), you'll probably like this one (and we did).
