I watched the new Mission Impossible again. This time I did not pee twice like the first time I saw it. Glad I was able to fill in those gaps! A rewatch confirms that it is a 10/10 masterpiece. Cavill's performance is the only weak spot, I think. I still can't believe those helicopter scenes. Also, Alec Baldwin getting a few hits in on Henry Cavill is still incredible. People are definitely underrating it.
I got around to watching RBG since it's a near shoe-in for a Best Documentary Oscar nomination due to it getting very good reviews and actually making money. If you've read my reviews before, it's pretty clear that I'm on the left side of the political spectrum, but even given that I'm glad I waited to watch this at home instead of going out to the theaters to watch it. It's the most boring of all documentary types, the surface-level "look how great this person is" kind, where it's an uncritical greatest hits look at a notable person. There's not a lot of insight to be had here, and I would have liked some kind of texture that even "Won't You be My Neighbor had (such as her rather conservative decisions on copyright cases that I'm not a fan of). Skip it unless you want to watch all the oscar noms.

Fantastic Mr. Fox will have to wait. I saw The Endless at one of my local indies tonight.
I definitely recommend it. It's creepy, interesting, low-budget sci-fi. Performances weren't always the greatest and it could be disjointed, but not to the extent that I cared or that they seriously detracted from what was a fun, ominous slow-burn.
I watched The Wife today. I'm currently sleeping on my couch on account of a leak in my room that the super is trying to fix (but not on the weekend) so I said, "f*** it, I gotta get out here. I'm gonna go watch that stuffy old person Oscar bait movie with Glenn Close." Turns out it's pretty good. It feels like a domestic drama lifted out of the 1990s, right down to the corny flashbacks with horrible actors. Thankfully, all of the exploding, seething resentments in the present were played out much better by Glenn Close's Joan and Jonathan Pryce's Nobel-winning Joe, who have solid chances of appearing on my QCW ballot. Nothing better than watching two greats going at each others throats in the executive suite of some Swedish hotel room. Y'all should check it out sometime!!
I just got it at one of the theaters I have within walking distance. I haven't watched a trailer, but the poster hasn't done much to inspire me to go out and see it. Maybe I'll give it a chance at a matinee sometime.
