I saw the first half of Battle of the Sexes (2017) on a plane. An interesting movie that I want to finish: it's about the lead-up to the tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in 1973. Both Emma Stone and Steve Carrell do a great job developing their characters (as usual), but I also really like Jessica McNamee as the more conservative tennis star Margaret Court. Margaret's appraisal of
Billie Jean and her hair dresser's relationship
was delivered in such a dry and immediate way. Her manner matches a later scene where she speaks without thinking
Billie Jean is the best tennis player in the world
. She feels like a credible foil to Billie Jean.

I saw A Wrinkle in Time a few weeks ago. I mostly loved it, although of course I had some "that's not how it was in the BOOK" feelings.

Ohmygod I've been suggesting Godard movies to help in my French practice groups for the past 2 weeks and I have to watch one by tomorrow afternoon. I watched Breathless last week which is soooooooo stylish. I'm also trying to get access to Kembra Pfahler movies because um she sounds amazing but I'm having trouble finding them. :(

Sansho the Bailiff. Despite being heart-wrenching at times, it's probably the most optimistic film I've seen by Kenji Mizoguchi.

Last movie I watched was Danish Girl. It was on Netflix, partners friend had recommended it to her, so we gave it a watch. Her friend said it was "inspirational"...well let me tell you, damn thing is spectacular but had me in tears from start to finish. Had a headache for days afterwards...

I saw Death Wish recently. I really liked the movie but, other than the fact of the hero being a vigilante, it was nothing like the Charles Bronson movies where he just runs through bad guys.

Very watchable though. The good ending is entirely unbelievable. Pretty much your standard action flick. Dont expect any John Wick style scenes.

I just saw Deadpool 2. It wasn't as good as the first one but is still hilarious.

Rampage. It was as stupid as I expected but I didn't hate it.

It was my mom and stepdad's idea to go see it. They both dislike video games so it was kinda funny how much they liked it.

Oceans 8. It was fun, and basically exactly advertised.

There's a new-ish theater nearby and there's a lot of Kurosawa being played this month at it. I think I'm going to see Throne of Blood on Saturday.

I saw The Disaster Artist. It's the story of the bad film The Disaster Room. For the most part I found it cringeworthy; James Franco's portrayal of the mysterious Tommy Wiseau and Dave Franco's naivety as Greg Sestero were fascinating for the first twenty minutes. After that, the rest of the film was predictable. I kept comparing it mentally to Ed Wood, another film of a horrible filmmaker with pluck. I think I like that film better because I fundamentally like Ed as a person, whereas Tommy is too mysterious, too jealous of Greg, or too arrogant to ever win me over.

Watched the movie Tag yesterday

Most of its humor is in the over the top actions of the adults playing the game. All in all its pretty funny. If you love comedies its a good watch. Not quite up there with lets say the first hangover but also not far from. As far as comdey it definitely did its job, I certainly would watch it again.
