    Tag (2018)- I give it a 5 out of 10. I knew it was going to be silly (grownups playing tag). Exactly what I expected.

    Mom and Dad (2018) - 7 out of 10. Weird and funny. A chemical spill that causes every parent to brutally murder their children. I felt bad laughing at kids being murdered.

    Circle (2015)- 5 out of 10. With a better ending, I would have given it a 6. Thirty people trapped in a circle...the group must vote to kill one person every 2 minutes or someone will be randomly killed instead. Race, age, jobs, economic status all play a factor. Kept me interested to see who would last the longest.

    Traffik (2018) - 5 out of 10. It was blah. About human trafficking.

    Extinction (2018) - 5 out of 10. Saw this today. I was going to turn this movie off and give it a 3/10, but then an unexpected twist happened. I like twists.

    Took my kids to see Teen Titans Go. It was fun. Very much in keeping with the tv show, but still enjoyable for 90 minutes. Silly, sometimes stupid, but that's their thing. Much, much better than Hotel Transylvania 3, and I would say as enjoyable as incredible 2, even if the production quality from Pixar is much higher.

    Mission Impossible 6 was a hell of a ride. I'm amazed and humbled by what Tom Cruise can do at his age.

    It's one of those movies that just oozes tension. It's one of the few Netflix original movies that does not disappoint.

    Saw Equalizer 2 last night. Good action, but too predictable. They tried to do a twist, but it was so obvious. Overall, I'll give it a 6 out of 10.

    I watched Teen Titans Go! by myself.

    It was a fine movie. A lot of fun deep cuts, and some laugh out loud moments. However, if you are not a fan of the show or you do not have kids, it is worth waiting to rent it.

    Saw Mission: Impossible - Fallout. Nothing new or grounbreaking, and it was relatively predictable in my opinion, but I enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun and the action scenes were cool.

    Alpha - Saw it last night at the movies. I give it a 7 out of 10. Wolves are awesome.

    Antman and the Wasp - 7 out of 10. I actually liked it better than the original Antman movie.

    7 Days in Entebbe - 4 out of 10. Bored me to death.

    Upgrade (2018) - 8 out of 10. Good storyline, nice effects, and good action. What's not to like?

    The First Purge (2018) - 6 out of 10. Not as good as the first 3 Purge movies, but it was okay.

    Calibre (2018) - 7 out of 10. I watched this movie based on a recommendation from this thread. I was not disappointed. Good suspense.

    I watched Jason Bourne last night. Definitely a drop off not only from the earlier Matt Damon ones, but the Jeremy Renner one too. The writing was mediocre, and unlike the others, he didn't seem nearly as clever or resourceful.

    On top of that, both of the main actresses gave emotionless, wooden performances. Julia Stiles mailed hers in so badly you'd never know that shed been in Hollywood for 20 years

    My family watched A Wrinkle in Time, and man was it awful. The acting and special effects were fine, but even as a family film the story was so remarkably shallow and stupid. The idea is fine, but has zero depth whatsoever. Writing for kids should be better than something written BY kids, lol.

    Watched "The Secret Scripture" with Eric Bana, about a woman being thrown into a mental asylym in Ireland due to an obsessed priest who couldn't have her, and "Denial" with Rachel Weisz, about a Hitler apologist who claimed the Holocaust never occurred and brought suite in England against an American educator. True story from events about a decade ago.

    Watched American Animals and really enjoyed it.

    Name doesn't present very well for the movie imo, loved how the intro to the movie states it is not based on a true story it is a true story.

    Takes place about 15 years ago in Lexington Kentucky, the movie flips between the movie with acting to the real life people portrayed in the movie.

    The plan becomes a heist of a valuable rare book from the library and how they plan to sell it. Not an action movie at all, more an odd good story with good acting and the real life characters are very good in the movie.

    Went to do see "Venom" a couple of days ago. I give it a 6.5 out of 10. It was entertaining & had good action. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't enough destruction and chaos. They need to improve that next time.

    I think Venom should have been going up against a better "villain". I can't stand a weak villain in super hero movies. I hear the sequel will pit Venom against Carnage, so I am hoping it will be more destruction and mayhem. I want to see a freaking blood bath. Make the next one rated R.

    Just watched the futuristic AI sci-fi Upgrade.......... F***ing fantastical. Highly immersive. Instant cult classic. Adrenaline rush. Violent, original, impeccable. As good as or better than John Wick 2 and is up there with something like The Terminator. Goes to show you what kind of quality you can get out of a mere $5,000,000 budget.

    So I used a "rent one, get one free" at Redbox, but the "get one free" part had to be a regular DVD ....... Man it's amazing how sh**ty these things look to us now that we're completely adjusted to everything HD this and Blu-ray that. Makes the movie look like a B quality film. I remember when Blu-ray first came out and, to my eyes, I couldn't discern a highly notable difference in quality between it and regular DVD..... but now that my eyes are acclimated to HD, regular DVD's f***ing suck. :lol:

    I was a very early adopter of the Bluray format and of HDTV, and have been beating that drum for more than a decade now. It makes me laugh when someone says that they can't see the difference.

    However, sometimes it really depends on both the DVD and on the player. I watch all of my discs on my PS4, and it does a really good job of upscaling and making the best out of what the DVD has. The difference in the same disc on a crappy machine can be noticable sometimes. (we have a garbage 7" player that we bring in the car)

    Different movies give you different levels too. An older film, made before HD was a thing, will often have less of a difference than a newer one. And animated movies often still look really good on regular DVDs, regardless. (High end CGI ones are of course best on Bluray)

    I never got it either. It blew me away when I saw Bluray.

    Speaking of HD, I have no idea how I watched football on SD. It is night and day how good it looks.

    Football in SD on a big HDTV is an unwatchable blur. Its disgusting. I had to suffer through that a few weeks ago for the Patriots game because Comast carries an out of town CBS station that had the game, but not in HD for whatever reason.

    However, if you still have an old SDTV and hook it up to your cable or satelite box, the picture is much better. Probably closer to what you remember. I had a 32" that I would use that way up until a few years ago, when I'd watch college games on the small one and play video games on the big one at the same time.

    Ralph Breaks the Internet was a lot of fun. If you liked the first one, I think that you'll like this one too. Its a bigger movie, but I think that they try to cram a bit too much in, and would have been better served spending more time focusing on fewer things.

    My biggest complaint is that while the movie has a good message, it doesn't have a real villain, but rather is the heroes against the situation. This means that they lose a lot of fun from having a funny/over the top bad guy like the first one.

    In the gameday thread on Sunday, someone mentioned that they wanted to see the new Clint Eastwood movie. It holds absolutely no appeal to me, and I'll never see it. But it did make me go back and think about when the last time I did see one of his movies. His stuff just isn't my cup of tea whatsoever.

    But rather than clutter the football thread, I thought I'd post in here.

    It looks like the last movie that I saw him as an actor was In The Line of Fire, from 1993. I didn't care for it. Before that, it was The Dead Pool, which was far less enjoyable that Deadpool!

    As a director, the last one I saw was Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, from 1997. It was really good, but not something I'd watch a second time.

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is having a special screening one week early. Luckily for me, no one in Seattle clicked on that sponsored ad. Long story short, I am seeing that movie tonight and I am pumped. PUMPED!

    Due to buying the week early pass I have now watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

    I will start off by saying that Spider-Man is my favorite comic book character if not my favorite character of all time.

    I can honestly say that right now Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, is my favorite, by far Spider-Man movie. It is my favorite origin movie. It amazes me on how much fun I had. This movie captured the Amazingness of Spider-Man. It was spectacular.

    The animation was amazing. The trailers did not do a good job of capturing how good this movie looks. It is a feast for the eye. Steve Dikto came to life on the screen. The music was great. The story was heartfelt. In fact, I am calling my dad tomorrow because the movie made me miss him.

    I went in with high expectations and the movie met them. I need to watch it again, but it might be my favorite superhero movie. I came out of the theatre with such a big smile on my face. I want to see it again. If they just started the movie again, I would have watched it again.

    If you are a fan of Spider-Man you need to see this movie on the big screen.
    If you are a fan of comic books, you need to see this movie on the big screen.

    Finally saw Venom. Loved that it was direct and to the point. No filler space. No “wups the bad guy got away” cliche “so let’s monotonously spend another 45 minutes circling back to it”. Rather than wearing me out it left me wanting more.
