Just watched this and while it is a little on the predictable side. It was still a very good movie and I thought Mary J. Blige was also great in the lead role. 6/10

I just watched Saturday Night Fever for the first time yesterday. I've always heard this movie was a classic, but I was disappointed. Travolta's acting is great, but the way the story plays out is just so depressing. The protagonist has some huge character flaws. Certainly not a feel good movie.

Wonder Woman last night. Sooooo much better than Captain Marvel. Blew that shit out of the water. And Gadot is great in it, and absolutely goregous.

Clockwork Orange earlier today. An absolute classic.

8/10 - This is actually a good film. Goes for 2 hours and something is always happening... no 5 minutes of padding here and there.
Some things I noticed....
  • Pete Davidson's fake teeth don't fit him properly, too white and too big for his mouth.
  • Did not recognize Pamela Adlon in her 1st scene, she must have just recently been to have some 'Face Work' done and her face was too puffy. The other 2 scenes I could recognize her.
  • Very good performance by Judd Apatow's daughter Maude Apatow (who plays Pete Davidson's sister).
  • When did Marisa Tomei start playing 'Mom' roles ?

It Chapter Two
I admit I found the first one good but slightly overrated but finally seeing Chapter 2 made me appreciate Chapter 1 a lot more, while that one did have its ridiculous moments (that Leper guy, namely) this one went full on Raimi - not that I don't love Evil Dead but there's a reason those movies aren't over two and half hours long... and yeah this would've been better if it was slightly shorter and it would've made more sense if Mike had been the one studying the town in the first one instead of Ben (as I am told is the case in the book) but I did like the cast and had no trouble believing they were the Losers Club grown up.

Ultimately I thought it was decent if not up to the standard of its predecessor. ***

7/10 - Good film, although, the 2nd hour is better than the 1st hour. I was kinda ready to turn off at the 60th minute mark, but continued on.

I have read that some people who have seen this, say that it is similar to 'The Fault In Our Stars (2014)' film.

Kingsman : The Golden Circle

I didn't like the first one but this one was quite ok. The original struggled with its tone and came off way too goofy at times. The sequel is more serious so that's a big plus. Loved the American branch of the Kingsmen and Moore as the villain.
