I watched The Gentleman last night and really enjoyed it. The only downside was that it was a little hard to understand at times with the accent.

Also, if you don't like the "C" word, don't watch this movie.

I watch a lot of Brit gangster movies and shows, and the "C" word gets thrown around rather casually in a lot of those shows. To the Brits (and Aussies), the C word is a generic term for "jerk" or "arsehole" or whatever you want to call it. It's definitely not in the same level of nuclear apocalyptic swearword that it is in the US. Apologize if I'm explaining something that people already know, but, there ya go.

Either that or Cardinals.

To me, that C word is much more offensive.

Da 5 Bloods is very good. A sneaky genre film that's always about something and features a terrific ensemble. With Delroy Lindo being a particular standout.

I watched Knives Out again last night (had seen it in the theater last November). Just a really fun movie. Great cast. Not a typical whodunit.

Finally saw it this past weekend. Fully agree with you, Reilly. I really enjoyed the movie. It's a bit of a modern twist and a partial sendup of the classic whodunits. I've seen references to a potential followup/sequel. I'll be curious to see how well that might go.

I think the plan is to just make another Benoit Blanc mystery without any of the Thrombeys. Which could be interesting. If they can make them nearly as good as Knives Out I'd be more than willing to see one every year or two.

Not necessarily a must see, but this past Friday watched "Brian's Song" completely unaware yesterday was the 50th anniversary of Brian Piccolo's death.

Yeah, I read it was going to be following Benoit Blanc - which makes sense. No point it rehashing the rest of the characters - their story is said and done. They got what they all deserved - no point trying to 'top' that. Plus, a new mystery and a new cast offers a way to keep things fresh.

Daniel Craig looks like he is having the time of his life in the movie.

Under the Hall of Very Good to See Movies, I'd add The Quiet Place. Very interesting thriller with very little dialog. Not a horror movie (not gory), but borderline thriller-horror.

And as an added bonus...if you watch closely you realize that the "bad guys" appear in 2020...

Apparently Jurassic Park and Jaws were the #1 and #2 films at the box office over the weekend.

Must be the “new normal”: Spielberg summer blockbusters in a repeat form.

My kids loved Jaws, but we watched it at home. I think they've seen Jurassic Park, but its been a number of years.

Last weekend was probably the weekend of the year with Palm Springs, The Old Guard, and Greyhound debuting on streaming and First Cow hitting digital purchase. Heck, I heard good things about The Relic as well.

FWIW, Palm Springs is very good.

We watched Palm Springs last night. I enjoyed it

The Old Guard was fine for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Kind of on the level of John Wick.

FINALLY saw Joker. Very interesting. Am I to understand that it should not be considered canon?
