Yeah, don't believe how I sat through that crap until the ending.  Had some decent names too, how did they all read that script and go 'yeah, I'll be associated with this turd'?

Anyone seen this? The NYT reviewer made it sound great/terrifying.

”This isn’t a true-crime documentary, it’s something far creepier: a low-budget found-footage horror movie that’s so realistic it’s uncanny, like an otherworldly episode of “48 Hours.” The writer-director Dutch Marich and his cast work magic by keeping the action to a minimum and the acting on a low flame. Watching the film calls for patience, because Marich reveals what happened to Gary almost entirely through dialogue, like a campfire ghost story.

That is until a sadistically directed finale that’s so terrifying, I had to look away from the screen because I could not handle it. I can’t wait for the sequel later this year.”




No, its not all that. Typical found footage type show. Nothing special. I personally have grown tired of the genre but a cheap way to make a movie, I guess. I am looking out for Winnie the Pooh, Blood and Honey. What happens when a beloved childrens story goes into public domain and gets turned into a slasher film. Much more original.

I give the Google blurb five stars, too:  "After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. Although he is horrified by the new power, a sex worker convinces him to use it to fight crime."

We just got back from the new Elvis movie. I went as a curmudgeon. The best Elvis movie, in my book, is the one from the late 70s “This Is Elvis.” I had the vinyl, it was so great a summary of his career.

This one is wonderful. Baz is a director that takes significant liberties, and there are plenty of omissions and untruths in this (like his firing “Colonel” “Tom” “Parker” while onstage at Vegas - didn’t happen, but looks cool). But the guy playing Elvis kills it. Looks. A lot like him, and has the moves down

All three of us loved it. A great way to spend a few hours in a cool theater in the summer.

I thought it was old enough for TV,  maybe down road. Looks like a good venue in Detroit though.
I did come up with a 2016 teen coming of age movie with same name on xfinity.
Last good movie I saw was "A Most Wanted Man" Phillip Seymore Hoffman's last, but sad.

La maman et la putain (1973) - Jean Eustache

Three and a half hours of talk about sex in French. Not boring, I think I learned something. My first girlfriend was French, about five years after this time. I was number 20 while she was only 19. I shouldn't have asked, but now I see why she told me.
 
Sartre makes a cameo appearance philosophizing to women in a cafe, none of whom is Simone de Beauvoir — probably at home writing, waiting for him to bring one.

Great writing. Thought I'd never watch another murder mystery or police procedural again, but the first three seasons of Grantchester (PBS) are very good (except for an absurd product placement for Jameson whisky in episode 1). I will probably watch the rest of them.

I am surprised I even saw two first-run movies, and liked them both.  About Istanbul, and pre- and post-WWII Czechoslovakia, respectively.
