      That movie could have been something great. If the director had any sense of how a movie should be paced and if the writers had clue one on how to write a story that isn't boring beyond belief. Even the always charismatic Brad Pitt was sucked into a pit (no pun intended) of boring nothingness.

      • Finally saw Ninotchka (classic 1939 comedy with Greta Garbo). It's fine, but from all the paeans I thought it was going to be more special.

        I'll say this, though: there is a short scene towards the end between her and Ina Claire that is some of the best screenwriting I've heard.

          Always wanted to watch that. I will have to check it out.

            Yeah, I don't know how I missed it all these years, either. Been meaning to see it since I was a teenager.

            So far I have been underwhelmed by the Garbo I have seen except for The Mysterious Lady, in which she is achingly beautiful and so tragic you could cut the pathos with a chainsaw. I have not seen Wild Orchids, Anna Christie, Camille, or Mati Hari yet, though. I have high hopes.

              I've got that taped. Just a matter of getting around to watching it.


              On a side note, doing some channel surfing yesterday I came across War Games. Probably hadn't seen it since it came out in '83 but sat there and watched it.
              A bad cause requires many words.

                    • Avengers: Endgame. B/B+. Well executed finale but unsatisfying nonetheless.

                      Yeah, better than most superhero movies like Transformers/any DC movie outside of Batman/etc, but way too long, heavy handed with the morality, and just overall just didn't hit the fun factor. I can see why the fanboys like it. But wasn't my thing.

                          To get the most out of this movie, you really had to see it opening weekend with a theatre full of people who all reacted to the various points throughout the movie.

                          It's not going to age well as time progresses sadly =(

                              No MCU movie will be played in 25 years except to laugh at the horrid period piece ("why were these people so violent and superficial?"). It's disposable gum.

                              The market for gum is enormous and highly lucrative. These are Flash Gordon serials (in their time just as popular), except they're three hours long and cost a billion dollars to make.

                              • I enjoy (almost) all of the Marvel movies, but I have not watched any of them more than twice. I usually end up napping through the second watching.

                                Edit: Basically what Kepler said, except the enjoying part I assume
