Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)

Shallow, melodramatic, tiring by the end. Better than Genisys though. And it starts with my favoritest double-recorded Sarah Connor speech, that one from Judgment Day. Which I think is telling: they were trying to recapture that second movie. Trucks, deserts, shapeshifting terminators, Mexicans, they're all there, even flying planes for no reason. The new legion terminator, btw, is both cool and gross, nanomachines over an autonomous skeleton, super icky when they separate but cool as a horror vehicle. Etc and so on. it's a jumbled movie that could have been three smaller, cooler films, probably should have, but they jammed them altogether under an 80s action veneer and it's probably not so boring that i won't watch it again but goddamn, Grace turning her back on a terminator just about says it all

Da 5 Bloods (2020)

This movie wears "Vietnam War movie" like a disguise. It's not a Vietnam War movie. It's some kind of allegory that *might* actually be gaining power from how much mysticism it eschews. Might need a second watch to find out just how much old man anger and despair it contains despite looking a lot like some 80's A Team clone.

Tenet (2020)

I went to extreme efforts to learn NOTHING about this movie before seeing it.  SciFi and big budget was my only data.  So, I'll hold off on any spoilers for now.

I liked it.  It was an intriguing concept, but things got complex.  Very complex.  Very very complex.  One issue the director needs to take blame for is that quite a bit of dialog was hard to hear over the other sounds in the movie.

Even without the sound issues, it was a major mind bender, so I'd like to see it again just to catch things I might have missed the first time around.  I'm looking forward to a DVD copy with subtitles.

EL, I think I'd have to see "Tenet" a few more times to understand what was going on. I also found it too noisy. bibibibibi

Just smile at the projectionist and ask for the film to be run in reverse. :D

And in other movie news:

Mulan (2020) - Unlike the cartoon version, Disney thankfully skipped the wisecracking mini-dragon this time.

The actress who played Mulan did a good job and was quite attractive ajajajajaj, but was outshown by the Goddess of Beauty.

Yes,  akakakakak Gong Li akakakakak was in the movie.

Saw the movie "David Attenborough:A Life On Our Planet". It ran for 140mins. It was really thought provoking and required the audience to pay attention. At the start of the movie, he said that at the end of the movie, he would be having a discussion with someone whose name I can't remember. At the end of the actual movie, all the credits were shown. The only man in the theatre thought it was finished and he left the theatre and didn't see the last bit which ran for about 45minutes. bibibibibi It was the most expensive movie I have seen. I am a movie club member and I usually pay $8 (Australian). I  had to pay $26. aoaoaoaoao

Any reason why the price was so high?  Yes, it was long, but not that long.

EL, I understand that the theatre was told what price to charge when they ordered the movie. If I find out any more, I'll let you know. bfbfbfbfbf

I just watched Watchmen (the film, not that ridiculous TV show that missed the whole idea)

I didn't like it at the time, but rewatching it it was more prescient than it was when it came out (even though it's a story written in the 80s about the late 70s lol)
