I thought we had one of these but I guess we don't.

Anyone seen anything good recently? My goal this year is to write two reviews a week, which includes going to the theater twice a week (AMC A-List has been good for that). I...can't wait until we get out of the early months. January and February really are dry months (thank god for the delayed art film releases being a saving grace).

Last week's movies were Wandering Earth, the current best-selling movie of the year (an amount almost entirely isolated to China), and Fighting With My Family. Wandering Earth was mindless nonsense, essentially Roland Emmerich with a Chinese flavor. Fighting With My Family was a standard biography, but it got me to care about a story about the WWE which means it had to be doing its job well.

This week will be Captain Marvel, naturally, and...something else. Not sure what. I feel like nothing else major is getting dropped to avoid competition, so probably something I've been meaning to avoid...

Here are my reviews so far:

There hasn't been a good movie in awhile... all the biggest AAA, mainstream movies recently have been generally poorly received or mixed reaction(Star Wars Last Jedi late 2017, Black Panther 2018).

I think the last decent movie I saw was actually Moana(2016). Mainly cuz of the songs.

We used to have a movie topic back in the day but that bit the dust. Shame, really.

I started my subscription to the AMC A List a few months ago and do enjoy how it’s helped me make going to the movies more of a consistent hobby.

Recently saw Wandering Earth, Fighting with My Family, and Happy Death Day 2U.

Wandering Earth was fun and mindless, but I did leave a bit disappointed since I actually went into it thinking it was going to be amazing given how much it’s sold. Happy Death Day 2U was just okay. I actually enjoyed the first one but figured the second wouldn’t match it’s quality. Definitely correct in that aspect.

Fighting with My Family was the best of the trio and actually had me pulling up footage from Paige’s time in the WWE. Although I grew up watching the WWE, it’s been more than a decade since I actually tuned in. Had no idea who Paige was but the film pulled me right back in, if only for a moment.

So This year I've seen

Stan and Ollie
Green Book
Mary Queen of Scots

All three did not disappoint.

Still weighing up whether to see FWMF (I'm a WWE fan, which is probaly one of the worst kept secrets on this board but I'm in an "I dunno....")

I mostly just use it as a log though.
How paralyzingly dull, boring and tedious!
