What Have You Done to Solange? was worthy of the watch. The cinema does not always make sordid tales so well. The direction and cinematography are artful. The murders are creative and shocking. The 1972 film takes risks that a person would not see today. Furthermore, this giallo takes time for drama, characterization, and suspense. And, several actors give memorable performances. I am glad to have finally rented What Have You Done to Solange? On-line buddies have mentioned the movie enough.

Patriots Day is very good, and more people should see it. Yes, the film is sad at times, but it is also inspirational and informative. I appreciated this dramatization of the recent Boston Marathon bombing. Beside presenting history, Patriots Day also provokes thought about violence and tragedy in America. As expected, the cast does an excellent job. You should know that the script takes some poetic license; however, I assure you that the new release is respectful and worthy of its subject matter.

Golden Schmoe nominations happen currently. The Strikebacks have a pretty good debate going. Some commentators feel that the awards will be predictable. For example, Deadpool and Rogue One are very lauded around here; therefore, they might take accolades over other worthy cinema. I have three thoughts. They all add up to "You should vote as you want". For one, Deadpool, etc. might take many GSs, but that situation is okay. They are popular for a reason; we have all seen them; and these wide release genre movies are not taking Oscars, Golden Globes, etc. as well. Two, we MFCers can always nominate atypical choices and foster some variety. Promote movies that deserve more attention if Star Wars and such are likely to eclipse them. Three, the GSs are supposed to be fun, so let us keep them that way. Perhaps, just enjoy the nomination and voting process. All movies are perhaps good movies in certain ways.

This weekend's box office results are coming in. Hidden Figures, La La Land, and Rogue One did well. I am not completely surprised. On Friday, a long line of people waited to buy HF and LLL tickets at my theater. The elderly patrons present really wanted to see those two movies. The Bye Bye Man did well this weekend for its budget. So, one hopes that (eventual) BBM 2: The Second BM emulates the Ouija franchise, where the second surpasses the first. Patriots Day did okay. Live by Night and Silence under-performed. Maybe, people did not want a serious cinema trip this weekend. Patriots Day and Silence are worth watching, no doubt. But, they are not necessarily the same history lesson as Hidden Figures.

Live by Night is quite good. Granted, the plot is sometimes underdeveloped, and some plot developments are bizarre. And, the philosophizing and dialogue are hit and miss. However overall, Live by Night is more than Gangster Squad and less than The Godfather. I like that LbN is both gritty crime tale and engaging human drama. The set design and screenplay show great respect for history. As widely noted, the cinematography brings an audience some extraordinary visuals. As expected, Affleck gets a capable cast to give effective performances. See the show if you have the hankering.

thanks for the heads up . been looking forward to Affleck's latest.

grelber37 updated his STATUS: 8 days ago

Patriots Day and Live by Night start at almost the same time. But, I am going to see Live by Night instead of the offering with more good reviews. The trailer and cast sold me. And, any film can be better than its reputation given the right audience. I shall post later whether LbN is super or shitty.

I forgot all about The Six Billion Dollar Man! I hope it's good. I loved that show with Lee Majors so much (even if he was only worth millions. ;)).

Great list, many of my own are on here. Live by Night!!

Good picks man, as of right now I think Guardians is my most anticipated. I'm not sure though, there's a lot that I'm looking forward to, some things I'm cautiously optimistic about and some that I would have preferred not to see. 2017 is shaping up to be a pretty damn good year.

Well, I resigned my job yesterday. Schmoeville might as well know, for I know that I have your best wishes. A person has some time now for this contemporary thing called binge watching. For example, Daredevil: The Complete First Season awaits. Now, a person should be able to socialize some on social sites while he jobhunts. And, I am a respectable writer. So, who knows? I might even soon write professionally or return to academia. Retail is also always good work when you can get it.

Hope things work out for you in the job search but in the meantime, maybe watching Daredevil will inspire you to become a superhero to kill some time.

Last night, I watched a neo-noir crimi drama called The Frontier. The Frontier stars Jocelin Donahue who gives a consistently strong performance throughout the movie. I liked her and a few other actors in the film. I liked also, at times, how the direction and cinematography made images tell the story of The Frontier. Also, we get some nice twists. Other than those merits, this recent release is mediocre. The plotting is sloppy. The characterization is sloppy. Some characters display remarkably inconsistent personalities. Some characters are simply hackneyed types. The dialogue is sometimes sloppy and of an outdated style. The film-makers really want The Frontier to emulate great noir films of old or recent times, but the movie is only okay in the end.

Sad to hear this. This is one I had planned to check out eventually but I'm scratching it from the list. I think I'll stick to those great noir films of old, because I'm just not sure they can be replicated. Thanks for this review grel.

I'll see it because I'm a huuuuuge Donahue fan .

These things are just random crap. However, over the last week, I have heard a husband and wife arguing over whether Deadpool was an appropriate family night film for their kids. I have heard a middle-aged woman informally review Manchester by the Sea, and she sounded just like SNL's Aunt Linda while doing it. And, yesterday, a relative asked me, "Are you aware that Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia, is on a vibrator?" "What?" "Ventilator! I meant ventilator!" So, as my late grandfather sometimes asked, "Sometimes, who needs entertainment when you have people?"

Siren-2016 follows a segment in V/H/S. Horrorfans will know what I am writing about. Siren is a pretty-good, satisfying horror fix. The movie has a healthy mix of suspense, sordid spectacle, decent drama, subtextual didacticism, gallows humor, and cheap thrills. Prominent among the cheap thrills, Siren contains a ton of nudity, for its title character is a primal, sexual, and tempting enchantress. However, director Gregg Bishop uses every trick in the book to obscure her state so that she remains mysterious and so that Siren might be broadcast on Chiller and such later. Impressive. Less impressive is some of the plotting, acting, and characterization. They are a mixed bag, but they are okay overall. And, I am alright with how Siren closely imitates Vamp-1986 and Splice-2009 in parts. Give Siren a watch if interested.

The Expendables 4 arrives in 2018 apparently. That will be alright. I hope that the next chapter is R-rated like the '80s action offerings that the series homages.
