  • Re: Movies: New Ideas Welcome II Prequel Reboot

    Finally saw Lion now that it's on Netflix.

    Really moving. Very well done. One of the best movies I've seen in a long time

      On the fence about that one. Will take note of your review.
      Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

        When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts. This is from 2006 but I had not seen this before. My goodness there were a lot of eff ups when that went down. Equally sad and frustrating.

          The story is great...the movie bored me.

                I just get the feeling something was missing. I didnt read the book but Angie did for book club. I didnt dislike the movie.

                  The Founder:

                  Biopic of sorts of Ray Kroc, founder *cough* of McDonald's.

                  He's an a-hole entrepreneur. Next? Good movie, but definitely doesn't sugarcoat things.

                    As I said a couple of months back, I thought it was well-executed, without needlessly drifting into excruciating detail about Kroc's extramarital affairs (all of which were amalgamated into his third wife, Joan). Keaton was great.

                    Kroc technically was the founder of the real estate brokerage called the McDonalds Corporation. But yes, he was a first class prick.

                      Detour:

                      A law student, thinking his stepfather caused his mother to enter into a coma, drunkenly enters a verbal contract to kill his stepfather.

                      A little scattered, lots of what is really the truth/what is happening, a sort of multiple storyline sort of movie. It ties up nicely at the end, with a few twists, of course. Worth killing some time to watch.

                        Mookie grabbed a quick QPwC yesterday--- very tasty (considering). Maybe there was something to that "best fast food in the world" blurb. Will have to get a bucket from the colonel and test it out.
                        a legend and an out of work bum look a lot alike, daddy.

                          A high-tech resort using AI Residents caters to your every whim. No law, no consequences. But then things go awry. Decent concept, ended up being a really crappy made-for-cable movie, at best. I dunno if Lifetime would even bother airing this garbage. Don't bother watching.

                              I think the movie was based on the original movie, but this version did come out before the HBO series....
