Watched an 18 hour Twin Peaks movie masquerading as a season of TV.  It was a swirl cone of incredible, baffling and maddening, and I hope they make more.

I need to check out Twin Peaks soon.

Last night I watched Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Usually find Tom Cruise movies entertaining. Didn't care for this one. Not nearly as good as the first one. The next movie I enjoy with Cobie Smulders will be the first.

Last movie I watched was the Guy Ritchie King Arthur movie.

It was alright. Like many of us I'm huge fan of Snatch and in general just love the way Richie writes dialogue, but unfortunately I think he does better in smaller movies. Seeing a big budget Guy Ritchie film made it painfully obvious that the core values of the film were Richie's but many of the decisions made throughout were out of his hands.

The lead actor was forgettable especially compared to some of the stronger performances of his co-stars. The action was visually impressive but felt removed from the rest of the scenes because they overused the '300' Style slow mo stop motion. I thought Jude Law was alright but he was kind of wasted by the talent surrounding him.

Not to be a snobby critic but the film left much to be desired. I'm hoping Richie's next picture is more like his older works since I'd be surprised if studio gave him a big budget again after King Arthur.

Film - IMDB/Rotten Tomato - Type and Stars

Allied - 7.1/6.2 and 64% of audience liked it - WWII Spy with Brad Pitt and Marion Cottilard

Logan Lucky - 7.4/7.5 and 76% of audience liked it - Heist with Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, and Daniel Craig

Wind River - 8.1/7.6 and 93% of audience liked it - Murder mystery with Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen


Allied is an above average film, but with the talent in front and behind the camera, it should be more. In any case, it is a decent mystery worth a rental or a view. Rated R for some reason I cannot understand.

Logan Lucky is a Steven Soderbergh heist film, which he has done many times. It is different though in that it is countrified and some of the characters are over the top in a good way. Quite a lot of fun. The leads all have their turn, but Danial Craig steals his scenes. Rated PG13, but it would go over kidsí heads.

Wind River is the standout. The second best 2017 movie I have seen after Dunkirk, but with Dunkirk having an ensemble cast, Renner has a chance at a best actor Oscar. Olsen is very good too. Strong visually with good writing and acting. This can be a tough film to watch at times and has a well deserved R rating. Not for kids, young women, or a date for those in a new relationship. Good film to see in the theater.

just saw Maltese Falcon for the first time.  I can understand the high regard for the movie for its time but just found it to be a good movie personally. 

saw the latest Spiderman movie as well.  it was ok.  the character is very much a stand-alone one in the marvel universe -- the movie's repetitive link to Iron Man and the Avengers took away from the movie IMO.  a bit too much deviation from the traditional spidey powers/backstory for my tastes as well.  not sure this version of Spidey will take off as a well-regarded revival of the series.
