    "Welcome to Marwen" - I thought it was interesting but the style definitely took me a while to get used to. Generally, I liked it, but I thought it missed in parts. So quirky that I'm not sure I'd recommend it generally. It's not a film everyone would be willing to sit through. I wasn't aware until about a week ago that it was based on a true story.

    Please don't ask me how I feel, I feel fine.

    "If Beale Street Could Talk" - Really enjoyed the movie. The filmmaking style was a little different, and I wasn't as jarred by it during "Moonlight" as I was this film. But the performances were terrific all around.

    Lego Movie II. Area preview screenings. Good movie. It wasn't as good as the first one but it would have been tough to beat it. The first one was very original an this one felt like.

    That's me! Debbie Downer.

    "The Wizard of Oz" on the big screen! Love that movie. Such a treat to see it in a theater.

    Mary Poppins Returns, not as good as the original but Emily Blunt makes her a delight with the music as well. 9/10!

    Ready for Valentine's!

    "Vice" - While the events in the film are disturbing, I found myself having a hard time concentrating on the film and paying attention. It just wasn't holding my interest. It was really interesting to watch Amy Adams as it's a very different part than I've seen her in. The most interesting character that I found in the film was Mary Cheney, and I actually ended up looking up information on her afterward.

    I saw it with someone who didn't know most of the people portrayed or remember some of the events, and they found it hard to follow. I agreed it wouldn't have held my interest much if I didn't know a lot already. I felt like it wanted to be The Big Short or W, but it wasn't. I'll probably watch again, alone, so I'm not as distracted.

    LEGO Movie 2 - I didn't like it as much as the original, but I don't think any LEGO movie is going to be as good as the original, because there's an expectation now. It wasn't hard to decode everything they were talking about, but it's not like the Kragle was super hard to figure out either. I think kids will like it. It does have a lot more of the "girl" LEGO represented this time, even moreso than the preview implies. Not that that's a bad thing, but it might not be for everyone expecting the same cameos as the last one. I loved the closing credits. I'll probably rent it when it comes out and watch them first.

    "Alita" - I've been intrigued with this since I saw the first trailer. I really enjoyed the film. There's a story to learn, so it does take some effort to follow along, but I thought the pacing for unwrapping the story was good. The action sequences are fantastic, but the film also has a lot of heart. I'm probably going to try to see the film a second time. Definite recommend.

    I want to see it, but can't get past her eyes. I'm a huge anime fan, so extremely large eyes don't bother me. But them on live action humans just totally creeps me out. So, I guess I'm going to have to pass.

    I don't know the original story, but Alita isn't a live action human.

    It's the eyes on the actress/character

    Yes, I understand that the eyes creep you out regardless, but Alita isn't a human - she's a cyborg, which might explain her look. Also, I'm guessing it's done by motion capture.



    OH! I can't believe I forgot to mention. Rosa Salazar is fantastic as Alita.

    You would be correct. Its a more advanced version of what James Cameron did for Avatar.

    I really want to see this film... but chances are wont be able to see it till it comes out on BR.

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle.
    I think I actually liked this film better than the first one. Very action packed. Sure, its got a few "shock and awe" moments within, and its got very coarse language, but overall, a good flick.
    I give it a good 7.75/10 on the GusScale.

    I agree on all counts.
