I saw that Room is coming out and has a lot of Oscar buzz.

I liked the book, but have no desire to see the movie. It just feels more unpleasant and real than the book felt to me. The book felt like a thriller, and the movie seems like a traumatic thing.

Crimson Peak was gorgeous, but sort of run-of-the-mill story-wise.

Even though they're all RUBBISH, I liked them.

(My big lonesome entertainment is to hit the theater for the first showing of the day on Fridays (not every Friday, just when there's something I want to see and I get up in time and I do try to catch up on sleep every now and again and it also depends if I drink wine when I get off my night job at 1 a.m. Friday morning) because I'm off my day job on Friday. It's cheap, and often no one else is even in the theater.)

I almost went to see that but I had heard the same buzz. Gorgeous is nice, but not enough to make me pay 5 bucks. Plus popcorn.

It's a really non-inspiring title, to me. It automatically gets confused in my brain with Crimson Tide and Twin Peaks.

Amy Adam's new movie, Arrival, was very good.

It's just about out of the theaters now. There was only one theater that still had it in our area, and they only had 10:40 AM and 10:40 PM showtimes.

I liked it because it was original. Not a sequel, or a remake, or a comic book. Not too many of those these days. Space aliens come to Earth and not speaking their language, we try to figure out what their intentions are, with some factions viewing them as benevolent and some as a threat to be destroyed. Good stuff.

Enjoyed is a pathetic understatement.

That was a smart movie.

Rogue One, with polo girl and "danger should be my middle name", we all enjoyed it, hockey boy saw it an wasn't so keen. I have overheard others who didn't like it, I think if you are a star wars nerd, it's good as it's background to the main story and you get all the little references. If you just go along to see a star wars movie it's not so good, the normal characters are not really featured, no light sabers (well maybe a bit)/
