A Fish called Wanda
I've seen it so many times when I was younger and I love it all the same to this day. I will admit to one thing though, for some reason as a child, I always thought Wanda and Otto's relation as Brother and Sister to be true; I'm thankful I see the truth now...
Three Identical Strangers
Nearly all of the reviews said something similar, "this is a documentary that has an absolutely crazy story, make sure you know as little as possible going in." After watching it, I've gotta say... this is a documentary that has an absolutely crazy story, make sure you know as little as possible going in. Part of me is compelled to do my own research on this story, but we'll see.
Directed by David Bowie's son, I remember there being a fair amount of buzz around this when it came out. I've been itching to see more Sam Rockwell since re-watching Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so what better movie to do that with than one that is 99% nothing but Rockwell? He does a fantastic job considering how much work he needed to do in this film and while I figured things out fairly quickly, I didn't see that as a detriment to this production. Apparently, this is supposed to be the first part of a trilogy, with the next film (Mute) releasing earlier this year on Netflix. Hopefully I can get around to watching that soon as well.

First off, Sam Rockwell is a treasure, always a delight (unless he's playing a racist cop, I guess) and in my eyes will never surpass the role of Guy Fleegman in Galaxy Quest.
Mute is an interesting kernel of an idea that devolves into a pretty mundane story.
Three Identical Strangers:
This is a crazy story. And a pretty good doc.
Glad someone else watched this. It's nuts.

Ant Man and the Wasp. Paul Rudd is always awesome. He definitely made the movie great to watch.
This Is Spinal Tap
Believe it or not, this was my first time watching this film - although I've certainly seen some of the gags before, like turning the volume up to 11. While I wasn't falling out of my seat laughing, it was well-written and clever throughout, and I surprisingly liked a lot of the music as well. Not my favorite mockumentary (that award goes to What We Do in the Shadows) but it still opened the door for everything after it, so much respect.
@sabotagethetruth Spinal Tap is my dad's favorite movie. We saw them live at The Beacon when they came to New York during their Unwigged and Unplugged tour, and he sang along to pretty much every song. It was mortifying. I think a big part of the appeal is that they're actually musicians making good (albeit ridiculous) music that fits an era and genre marvelously.

Wife and I saw Eighth Grade, Sorry to Bother You and BlacKkKlansman back to back to back. 3 great movies, all for very different reasons.

Deadpool 2: The sequel answered the only good fourth wall-breaking joke of the first movie, it’s McAvoy. Other than that, the humor again only relies on crude or potentially offensive scenes without anything that I would call a joke or a good one. Some pointless scenes or setups that amount to nothing. But the ending was not that bad, except for the Family Guy like the-scene-is-painfully-long moment. And I’ve hoped to see more of Morena Baccarin or at least as much as in the prequel, really disappointing.

Just watched Zero Dark Thirty, fantastic bomb movie but I still think of it as a conspiracy -_-
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
Hoping ya'll caught its return to theaters over these past two days! I had never personally seen the movie (despite loving the show) and it's more Bebop, so I enjoyed it. Some of the music selection, especially towards the beginning, seemed a little... off, but maybe that's because I'm just used to hearing Tank!

Eighth grade... I wasn't ready for this movie. Having 2 young daughters at home this movie made me profoundly anxious.
On a objective note I think the movie does an excellent job of being real... Even though the tech was not there when I went to Junior high the situations and challenges were all relatable and I found myself reflecting and thinking about my own teenage years during the film. I would definitely recommend this movie

Just watched Avengers Infinity War (i'm so late on this), man oh man it's as epic as the marketing team led me to believe. Despite not caring or knowing much about Marvel's cinematic lore and watching this in less then ideal conditions, i was entertained more than i expected.

@sabotagethetruth Spinal Tap is funny until you find yourself in a band opening for a puppet show.. shudder

Ready Player One. I massively enjoyed this, a beautiful celebration of the awesomeness of pop culture. I don't have much to complain about this, it's everything i wanted and expected it to be: a fun movie. It doesn't care much for anything else other than being just that.
I just watched Night is Short, Walk on Girl. Really liked it. I think it dragged on a little bit near the end, which is saying something given its trim 93 minute runtime, and I wish the acts were a little more elegantly connected, but the overall style and energy of this movie is something else. It feels like a real @TokyoSlim joint.

Have you seen the series The Tatami Galaxy? Night is Short, Walk on Girl is basically a sequel/spiritual successor. If you liked the film you'll mostly like the series, though Tatami galaxy is a bit less colorful
@ochi Never even heard of it. Adding it to the list!

Gkids has been getting a lot of great stuff over to the States. I haven't seen that yet, but I heard about it.
I was expecting a powerful movie and it delivered. Strangely, this is the first Spike Lee joint I witnessed so I'm going to have to watch some of his other works but there was a lot to love about this film and I'll take a little bit of pride that the detective it's based off of lives in my city now. A not-so-friendly reminder that racism has been prevalent in this country for a looooong time and we're nowhere close to its end. Seeing Topher Grace as the grand wizard was a trip in itself.
