Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Uh...yeah. So that was a thing. A jumbled mess of a thing.

I think my favorite part was:
we find Atlantis. And then nuke it to non-existence.

Dumb movie. If you can shut your brain off it's okay, but you gotta shut off the brain.

I don't want to use my brain while watching a kaiju movie. I want spectacle! Giant monsters beating the crap out of each other! Possibly using random wrestling moves!

KOTM may not have had the wrestling, but it had everything else I wanted.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was really good and I wasn't bored for a moment during the 2 hour and 40 minute runtime.

I'm glad I didn't know anything about the story going in.

Nobody can turn a movie 180 degrees from weird dramedy into obscene violence better than QT.

The name of the movie is superbly fitting as it's exactly a fairy tale of late 60's Hollywood.

My only real negative is the weird sorta shitty portrayal of Bruce Lee. Every other real person portrayed is played straight, but Bruce Lee isn't. At all.

Yeah I'm with the majority of the people who like the film in theorizing that the Bruce Lee scene HAD to be Cliff embellishing to himself because COME ON-its fucking BRUCE, ya REALLY gonna make him the Worf of the Tarentino-verse?

I don't think I've ever enjoyed My Neighbor Totoro as much as I did yesterday. I remember being so bored before, but it was an absolute delight this time.

I finally watched Captain Marvel last night, and in the oddest complaint I can imagine, I was disappointed that it was as good as it was, only because it really highlights how hard toxic douchebags came down on it because they didn't like a woman lead. It had problems for sure, but it was as good as most Marvel movies, and had been stated here by others before me, even a bad Marvel movie is still a pretty good movie.

Meet the Robinsons suffered from it being at the tale end of Disney's in-house slump. I like everything but the middle of the movie where it's basically just "Hey, lets meet the family and never do anything with them again" but the beginning and end are both great. I feel like Bolt is where they finally got the formula "right" again, but Meet the Robinsons is at least worth a look.

But for real, that's the weakest part while still having some gold segments.

The door-bell twins made the family act Oscar-worthy alone in my book, even though it TORTURES me that we only heard ONE of the damn door bells! And the sequel is cancelled, so we'll NEVER know!

Meet the Robinsons makes me cry like crazy at the end. I didn't expect it to, because I watched the movie and it was good. Funny, nice, not great, but good, and BAM! Onion cutting ninjas sneak in. I still tear up when I get to it.

Once upon a time in Hollywood

One of the better Tarantino movies. I really like it even though the driving parts felt a bit too long and Tarantino's foot fetish got a bit annoying for my taste.

The ending, holy shit. So cartoonishly violent. People were laughing in the cinema when it started. I don't know if that was Tarantino's attempt. There is one bit that felt like something straight out of Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead".

Unicorn Store: So I guess I'm just going to cry at the end of everything now, huh?

This was neat. It had a similar vibe to Safety Not Guaranteed, but from the POV of the off-kilter person instead of the person helping.

I had to look the dad on IMDB, and he was also the dad from Get Out. Fortunately they're very different characters. :awesome:

Go watch the West Wing! Bradley Whitford is a gem in that series!

Actually, every single character is a gem in the West Wing. Yes, even Mandy, who disappeared without any explanation whatsoever after one season. She was a gem during that one single season.
