Nice Guys! The Crowe/Gosling buddy movie.

We laughed our asses off. Great time. Well worth it.

It's all about the kid. She somehow elevated it above "buddy cop movie." And also stole every scene she was in. We almost -- not quite, but almost -- went full on Inspector Gadget with her, didn't we?

We also loved the beating Gosling took throughout the film. Strangely satisfying.

The Shallows!

Which is about Blake Lively in a bikini.

And a shark, I guess.

Anyway, 90 minutes of Blake Lively in a bikini. Two thumbs up.

It's a girl stuck on a rock being hunted by a shark. I'm not sure how to rate or rank it! Lively does a good job. It has interesting moments. I wasn't bored. I enjoyed how they got around the dialogue need -- she tends her wounds while talking to herself as if she were a patient (she's a medical student, which is handy).

Also interesting is that they avoid showing the shark. So when the shark strikes, we go close-up to Lively's reaction shot, then cut back for the gory results of whatever happened.

It's good, but probably not worth going out of your way to watch. Get Nice Guys in you instead!

So... Strangely unhappy with the Jason Bourne movie. It feels like they went just slightly too far here. It's messy, as expected, and predictable, as expected. But the problem is that we're now at the point where we have seen it all and we can't tell them apart and they've sort of embraced that.

Also, a very poor turn for Nicky Parsons. I didn't realize that she was the anchor, voice, and conscience for the audience
Spoiler
until she was gone.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople is one of the best movies I have seen this year.


It's...um... I don't know how to describe it. Moonrise Kingdom meets that Son of Rambo fan film meets early Peter Jackson meets...something else. Something just slightly new that stars Sam Neill.

 this movie needs sam neill

Patriot's Day. The movie about the Boston Marathon bombings.

I thought it would be crap...but holy shit, it was tense and very well done. And made me angry all over again.

Whoa! That's a shocker. The reviews have been along the lines of "too soon for real perspective."
