I saw JL last night and I really liked it. I had to suspended my comic book knowledge for some of it but lots of Easter eggs and I loved the Lois and Clark talk in the corn. I thought Superman and Wonder Woman were great in this film. Flash had some laugh out loud funny moments. The end of credit scene had me popping. I’m in the camp that Superman vs batman was great and the marvel civil war was not very good.
on Thanksgiving night I saw Murder on the Orient Express with my parents in Seattle
I hadn't read the book or seen either the previous film or the play so I can't compare this film to any of those (and I don't know if the ending is the same or not,) but I did not really care for this movie too much. good scenery and acting but the investigation was boring and the ending was a copout IMO and sort of ruins the fun of a murder mystery. D
Oh, and news today that Disney is in talks to buy parts of 20th Century Fox....we may get to see the X-Men and Fantastic Four in the MCU in the future as well.
Big news! Looks like the Fox/Disney deal is almost done! From what I've read, the deal may not include the Fantastic Four (those rights are owned by another company) but mixing the X-Men into the MCU fold would be so great.
Saw Justice League tonight. First film with my movie pass, which is pretty awesome, BTW.
I enjoyed it but, unlike Marvel movies, I don't have a super urge to see it again. It was a decent way to spend an evening though. I marked out when Danny Elfman's Batman theme played. I actually like if they are considering this Batman as a continuation of those classic Batman films from the 80's/90's. Christian Bale's era were superb but they stand alone so well they don't need to be continued in this universe. But it's fun to think of this Batman being the one from those early films.

I am flying home to Seattle tomorrow for Christmas. It sounds like on Sunday after football I am going with my parents and my cousin from Montana to see The Last Jedi again and then going to The Greatest Showman sometime on Monday.

SAG screeners have started rolling in. We watched two current movies last night.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - Frances McDormand was amazing as usual. Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell were pretty goos as usually. Darkly funny movie. The ending was a bit of a letdown but I would watch it again.
The Florida Project - Was eager to check this one out because it has been highly praised. Such a depressing subject matter. Biggest issue was that there was no real story of substance to speak of. The kids were so 'real' they were annoying. In fact, I bet a lot of time there was no script and the director just let the cameras roll. My wife kept saying, "This is how jerks are raised." and I have to agree. Reminded me of my days as a substitute teacher dealing with spoiled brats. Big time letdown after all the critical hype and word of mouth.
Also, a few nights ago I saw The Big Sick which, I guess, was a summer film. It was decent, Holly Hunter and Ray Romano were pretty great and Kumail Nanjiani were good, but the rest of cast, made up of real stand up comics, were awful. I've always felt that very few stand up comics can act and this film proved that.
Some more DVDs and streaming films are en route. We got I, Tonya yesterday. Wife is looking forward to that one. I'm looking forward to The Shape Of Water and Lady Bird (though I'm guessing that one might end up like The Florida Project).
