Movies seem to be one of the most wildly different "personal taste" things I know. I rarely go by reviews, most of the time I disagree with them....even with friends, people I know well, we don't really seem to have the same taste in movies at all.

Having said that, it's a bad time to release a movie that may be Oscar-worthy. Too early in the season, they get forgotten. Shame.

Just came back from seeing Wind River. HIGHLY recommend it.
My barometer for a movie is how many times I check the time. Didn't check it once.
And, living between three Indian Reservations in Minnesota I gotta say I think they portrayed their situation very very well.
Also, Jeremy Renner was fantastic.

We also saw this movie last night and highly recommend it as well. Kept my interest the entire time.

Had long plane rides to and from Europe recently, so I watched a lot of movies, I'm lousy at sleeping on planes.

Most of them aren't even worth mentioning except for 2

Lion - this movie was fantastic, made me cry so many times, and since it's a true story it's even better

Moana - one of the best Disney movies I've ever seen, and I LOVE Disney movies.....

I flew for 3.5 + 7.5 hours to and from London on my recent trip, so watched a LOT of movies....

Lion (finally!)- SO GOOD!! But not a good choice to watch in public. Was a blubbering MESS. The lady sitting next to me was (funnily enough) originally from India and now lives in Mississauga; and she was patting me on the shoulder consoling me and looking tearful herself.

Why Him? Pretty bad.

King Kong/Skull Island - entertaining enough, so-so.

Table 19 - surprisingly way better than I anticipated- bit of a sweet tearjerker.

The Accountant- just meh. Ok.

OMG I LOVED LION!!! I watched it on a plane, too, and cried almost from the VERY beginning, right? It's heart wrenching goodness!!

Haven't seen the other 2, but I totally agree about The Accountant. Big Meh.

EDIT: I just noticed that I posted about Lion 2 posts back.... hahahaha....

I know, I did too! Must have missed that the first time you posted it.


Table 19 really is pretty cute. Maybe not for you, Mike.


I can't wait to see Murder on the Orient Express!! I just read the Agatha Christie book for the first time about a year ago.
