The trailer for the Halle Berry thriller Kidnap showed when I went to the movies today. It may be the cheapest, most poorly presented big screen trailer I have ever seen. It looked like the DTV shit Bruce Willis is hocking nowadays. It also ends with a very badly delivered line by Halle Berry, damn she has really fallen off.

Well after today I have a three way tie for my favorite movie of 2017. I can't pick my favorite between Logan, Baby Driver, and now War for the Planet of the Apes. All fantastic movies, 2017 has been a damn good year so far.

Apocalypse, Bane, Electro, and the Hulk do look a little silly in the movies that you mention.

I'm going through yet another re-watch of Parks and Recreation. It occurred to me that "The Pit" is the perfect theme song for my hometown, considering there is a big ass pit in the middle of downtown Lexington that has been there now for fucking years. They are starting to fill the thing (or at least suppose to) but I guarantee I will sing the song every time I drive downtown Lexington until the day I die.

I'm resisting temptations to watch the new trailer for Blade Runner 2049 for fear of being shown too much. I want to go into the movie as fresh as possible. The movie looks awesome so far, even though I'm still slightly cynical over it. I'm worried after all these years with the Deckard "is he or isn't he" question being answered if it will ruin the mystique of the original. Villeneuve has a great track record, he's for 4 for 4 out of what I have seen from him so far. So if any one can achieve the impossible of making a successful sequel to a film like Blade Runner it is him. I will be there opening week with out a doubt, I have excitement and anxiety towards this. October can't come soon enough.

i rarely watch trailers. Have seen the first but will leave it at that. I'm looking forward to seeing Blade Runner 2049.

2017 Movie Journal- #8

You Know My Name- First viewing. A dreadfully boring TV western with Sam Elliot as a legendary law man. Once you find out how events when down it real life the presentation looses all impact because of the pour narrative. 1/10

Fort Apache, The Bronx- First viewing. Fans of movies like End of Watch will enjoy this predecessor of sorts about cops working in The Bronx neighborhood of New York. Paul Newman and Ed Asner give two of the most interesting performances of their careers, very different from what they were known for. It is a gritty, nasty film but a realistic portrayal of cops lives. 7/10

Winchester '73- First viewing. The James Stewart western continues the streak of Anthony Mann directed movies that I have seen in loved. It's a very simple western story but Mann manages to pull much deeper themes than other films of the era. 8/10

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night- First viewing. Why did it take so long for me to watch this movie I will never know. It is a brilliant debut for the director who establishes a cool world for the characters to populate. This is one of those indie-films that establishes its director as major talent. Ana Lily Amirpour will have a great career ahead of here (eventhough apparently she's a sophomore slump). 8/10

The White Buffalo- First viewing. Charles Bronson stars as Wild Bill and Will Sampson plays Crazy Horse (though were not supposed to know that but DVD cases announce that little tidbit) in an attempt to make a horror western in an era where westerns were not so popular. However, creature features were in so this was made to capitalize. Where does this movie go wrong? Well in a lot of ways. It never takes advantage of the fictionalizing exploits of true life characters, it's important to have a little fun here (this movie is completely void of that). The Buffalo effects work for the most part, but it seems like the movie was so hell bent on limiting it's exposure (like in Jaws) that the audience forgets this is a creature feature western and not just another western. 3/10

The Bad Sleep Well- First viewing. Akira Kurosawa's corporate revenge thriller finds its roots in Shakespeare (Hamlet, very loosely) stars his frequent collaborator Toshiro Mifune. The mood that Kurosawa establishes with this movie gives a very cynical look at the corporate world of Japan, it seems like he has some hatred there. 8/10

Throne of Blood- First viewing. Akira Kurosawa's Macbeth adaptation stars Toshiro Mifune (of course it does) as the Macbeth character. The movie continued their extremely successful line of collaborations (too bad they had a falling out) that gave us lead character that were very different than the usual cinematic tough guys of the era. I'm not a Shakespeare fan but I have to say Mifune should probably be up there with one of the greatest portrayals of the character. 9/10

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon- First viewing. I'm not huge on martial arts movies, it seems to be a genre where every thing is repeated over and over. This film is highly unique. I'm not even sure if I would call it a martial arts movie, it is an emotional character driven story that happens to have martial arts in it. It is a fantastical adventure that is highly dramatic. Ang Lee does a brilliant job of directing the intimate character moments as well as the fight sequences. 9/10

The Challenge- First viewing. If this movie came out today or there was a retrospective it would probably be accused of white washing. With that said this movie is really fucking cool. It follows Scott Glenn's character traveling to Japan and getting involved in a family feud. Toshiro Mifune stars as his mentor and trainer. The action sequences are excellently directed by John Frankenheimer (a director who was inconsistent at best) blending shootouts and samurai swords fights seamlessly. 8/10

The Book of Life- First viewing. This is yet another animated movie that insists on injecting pop culture references and putting in some nostalgia to appeal to adults (a pale imitation of Shrek). It was an interesting concept, I would live to see more explorations of Dias los Muertos but this just fails. 1/10

Alien Covenant- First viewing. I think fans of Prometheus (count me as one) are likely to be more forgiving to this movie than people who hated Prometheus. The good here outweighs the bad. I really liked the ideas from Prometheus expanded here, the Neomorphs were damn scary, and Michael Fassbender in the dual roles is excellent. I was not crazy about having the Zenomorph so out in the open and of course I hate that the default for the franchise is to give us new characters. It feels redundant, because it forces the new group of characters to figure out how to defeat the Zenomorphs. It forces the audience to sit through the acid blood discovery for the millionth time. 7/10

XXX: The Return of Xander Cage- First viewing. This movie forces the audience to be nostalgic for the original XXX, the problem is I don't any one who remembers that movie. I enjoyed the first one well enough but it's very disposable. Donnie Yen is very fun to watch, the movie should have dropped all of the Vin Diesel- XXX tie-ins and just focused on Yen. It felt like they were trying for a shared universe start-up, that just needs to be given up. 5/10

T2 Trainspotting- First viewing. I am a fan Trainspotting, I'm not as ardent as a fan as some but it is a pretty awesome movie. This sequel does a good job of planting us back in to the world without the concept feeling contrived or relying on the nostalgia of the first film. The performances in this movie are excellent and give logical continuations to each of the characters stories. It may not be the kinetic rush like the first movie but it is a great way to return to the world Danny Boyle brought to us in the original. 8/10

A Monster Calls- First viewing. An emotional, fantasy fable about the confrontation of tragedy and lose. I was very impressed by young Lewis MagDougall's performance, he carries the weight of the material as if he has experienced a tragedy in his life. JA Bayona balances the effects heavy sequences with the emotional, tender scenes. 9/10

Get Out- First viewing. I was worried the hype would not hold up when I finally got around to seeing it. This movie is as psychologically terrifying as it is funny and timely. Jordan Peele's script is sharp and intelligent, He also does excellent work behind the camera. This is for sure one of the best of 2017. 9/10

Split- First viewing. I am not an M. Night Shymalan fan. I love Unbreakable, Signs was okay, The Sixth Sense is overrated, and The Village is terrible. I haven't watched any of his movies since The Village. I'm glad I gave this one a shot, it's a strange ride that is an excellent showcase for star James McAvoy's versatility. This one caught a lot of heat for misrepresenting the mentally ill, which as you watch it there's obviously more to it than that. 7/10

Baby Driver- First viewing. Wow, this movie is awesome. Edgar Wright gives us a kinetic blast of an action movie. This is just one cool movie with fun performances all around from its cast. 2017 has been a pretty awesome year so far, this movie is sure to be on the year end best list. 9/10

Gaurdians of the Galaxy Vol.2 First viewing. I'm pretty sure I did not profile this one already. It's the MCU so of course I'm partial here. This movie does a great job of expanding the world from the first movie. While it's not the refreshing blast of the first one, it still is a fun ride and reminds us why this property is so cool for the MCU. It gives us more depth to the characters and ends on a poignant note and a great ending sequence. 8/10

Wonder Woman- First viewing. I am a defender of the DCEU but I will say that the films have had their problems. This movie is with out a doubt the best movie delivered from the DCEU so far. It brings that fun factor that people have said has been greatly missing from these movies. Gal Gadot embodies Wonder Woman perfectly. 9/10

I like how you compare Fort Apache, The Bronx to End of Watch.

As this list shows, you have been watching a lot of outstanding cinema recently.
