    Saw Naked, good comedy, lots of laughs, the main actor looks so much like his dad it is uncanny. Levity abounds in it though.

    I watched The Fare just now, excellent movie, and one of the more touching love stories out there, with a strong sci fi vibe. If you like mystery, sci-fi and drama melded then this one is for you.

    I saw the Jay and Silent Bob reboot, horrible movie, don't even know why I finished it, probably just to pass the time, it was so bad nothing in it was funny. Or maybe it was along the lines of someone else's humor, not mine, that's for sure. Never seen a more terrible comedy. 0/10.

    I watched Knives Out - which despite being directed by Rian Johnson was actually quite decent. He did jam a few SJW scenes into it but was overall quite balanced and in the end entertaining. Plus it has Ana de Armas in it.

    Watched Code 8, great movie, slightly moving even, and for a sci fi movie a little sad. I feel like they didn't explore enough of the story and that it could have had greater scope, otherwise it was pretty decent. 7/10.

    Watched The Fast and the Furious: Hobbs and Shaw, not a bad action flick, I rather enjoyed it. 8/10.

    I saw Superbob on Amazon Video and it was excellent, beautiful melding of sci fi and love story, and funny to boot.

    I watched Parasite about a week ago (a couple of nights before the Oscars and one night before it was aired on national TV, LOL). A good film! It's not actually a clear "class struggle" film that some people portray it to be and I don't think that it has a singular message that it tries to drive home. Instead, it leaves an impression and makes you think about what you saw. I very much prefer that to "sending a message". BTW, it starts relatively light-heartedly, but makes a pretty dark turn at one point.

    I also watched Bad Boys Forever. It's a film that doesn't try to do anything but be fun and it generally succeeds at that, so if you're in the mood for a few laughs with some over the top action, not a bad choice.

    Watched Jumanji: The Next Level, funny enough, at times it was hilarious in fact, Kevin Hart is at the top of his game right now, if you like action comedies and anything video game related, which is what most of us here like, then this one is for you.

    Just saw The Mandela Effect, if you're into programming it's a ten out of ten, sci fi at it's best, those people at Rotten Tomatoes wouldn't know a good movie if it hit them right in the kisser.

    I watched Ip Man 4, I love that they have Bruce Lee in there, even though it's not really him the actor does a really great job of capturing him. 10/10.

    Agreed this was a poor film and Kevin Smith really does need to stop using his daughter in film as she cannot act.

    Watched Dolittle the RDJ version .... Awful but watchable I think its a film that you have to have young kids to watch and enjoy

    Watched Curse of the Mayans on Amazon Prime, now the CGI left a lot to be desired, which is why I assume they didn't use too much of it, it was a good movie though, worth watching if you like aliens and that. Lol. 7/10.

    With our AMC Stubs Membership, we went yesterday to see Jumanji 2. A very fun romp!
    Today, we went to see Sonic!: The Hedgehog. Although I don't recall playing any of the Sonic! games, the movie was also a fun one to watch.

    I saw Yesterday, if you like the Beatles and music in general, you'll love this movie. 9/10.

    I did see that several months ago at the theater. I thought it was very-well done. And, an interesting concept behind it, too.

    I watched After We Leave...it got such a good rating on Rotten Tomatoes, why I don't know, it definitely wasn't all that. Took multiple sittings to finish, 6/10.

    If you like drama sci fi movies then maybe you will enjoy it more.
