My wife and I don't watch many movies, probably one per year. We watched a movie last night called American History X. I thought it was pretty good and I don't say that very often. It is on Netflix now if anyone is interested and hasn't seen it.

What a great movie

Mary Ann was nice, but Gilligan's Island was a wasteland for creativity. So was The Love Boat. So were a number of others which thankfully I've forgotten.

All the others had their moments. Some better than others.

Just saw Terminator Dark Fate.

I would put this fourth in the six Terminator movies. Certainly better than the last two.

The thrust of the movie is that in Terminator I, Sarah did change the future and "Skynet" was no longer part of it. However, the "machines" still organized and sent back another terminator to kill the leader of the new human resistance when she was young. Said leader, in the current time, is an ordinary young woman of about 20 living in Mexico City. There is more that comes into it that circles back to Terminator I and what happens after that movie ends, but I don't want to spoil anything.

The plot was pretty good and I developed interest in the characters. However, the pace of the movie was fast with lots of fights and chases. I will say the movie did good work with aging and anti-aging (is there a word for that?) the characters in scenes that take place in the future.

I think most people would find it on par with Terminator 3, which I liked better. Most people would probably deem it DVD worthy but not theater worthy.

We watched The Irishman this afternoon. It is very, very long.

Oh. You want to know what I think of it? Pretty good. Worth what we paid. People who knew the people involved say that Sheeran is full of shit, but it is still a pretty good story. I know people who knew Bufalino when he was alive, they say he was always a decent guy as a neighbor. Business didnít leak out.

We saw Knives Out yesterday. It was good, but I expected it to be better. It is extremely plot driven, to the extent where all the characters are cardboard cutouts. Personalities arenít needed for this one. There were overt overtones of class warfare that I havenít seen since the Ď60s. The plot explanation needed A LOT of exposition and still didnít make much sense. First half is pretty dull, if you watch it on Netflix you might tune it out. Second half gets you caring enough about one of the protagonists to get you caught up in the machinations.

We wanted to see Ford vs Ferrari but didnít have enough time yesterday. We might see it next Tuesday.

I thought Chris Pine died in the
first movie. How convenient
that he's back. The good news
is, Star Trek 4 is being filmed in
2020 for release in 2021. In
2021 they will also release
Indiana Jones 5 and MI 7.

Wonder Woman is a demi-god, so maybe there is some way she can get Chris Pratt back again though I don't really know what accounts for it.

First viewing, I didn't recognized Kristen Wiig in the first scene, but although she is friendly, I believe she is a villain.
