Bad Boys for Life (2020) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1502397/  Unexciting, boring, unnecessary, empty, especially when Bad Boys 2 was 17 years ago.

The Call of the Wild (2020) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7504726/ The budget was $135 million?  I know the dogs and other animals in the movie are CGI but no way it cost 135 million. Did it all go to Harrison Ford? The CGI was good but the movie was missing a soul, a heart, direction and purpose.

The King (2019) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7984766/ It was alright. Not bad. not great. Good for killing time.

Underwater (2020) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5774060/ A movie that FAILS at STEALING from Jaws, Aliens, the Abyss, the Meg, 47 meters down, Leviathan, Deep Star Six and even a bit of The Descent. The characters are dumb and their given dialogues even dumber and annoying saying not much that's intelligent and mostly repeating the same lines over and over whining about how they are going to die. One of the characters constantly says what he is going to do, when is he going to do it, why is he going to do and how is he going to do it so the audience knows what is happening: insulting for the screenwriter to treat the audience as if they are idiots. The cinematography is unfocused quick seconds shots never once did I feel that the characters, walking on the ocean floor almost 7 miles down, trying to get to the safety of an underwater drilling station, while being pursued by deadly aquatic creatures, were in any life threatening danger. The sound of Kristen Stewart's MONOTONE voice alone is enough to disrupt any attempts by the script to create and built up dread, tension and suspense.

The Rhythm Section https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7134096/ This is so slow, believe it or not, it's by the same folks who gave the world 24 James Bond films. They should stick with Bond films.

Also try to watch Bloodshot https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1634106/ and quit after 16 minutes. It's not any good.

The Old Dark House 1932 https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0023293/

She is the old lady in Titanic. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001784/ She was 22 at the time. First time I have seen her elsewhere.

A very good scary movie. https://www.amazon.com/Old-Dark-House-Boris-Karloff/dp/B084GHTCV5/

This is on Netflix now. Belgian mini-series. My reaction is MEH. The characters look very cliche.

As the sun starts to kill everything in its path, a plane full of passengers attempt to fly west into the safety of the darkness to escape its destructive power.

This debuts on Amazon Prime today. Looks dumb!

Upload takes place in the near future, where people who are near death can be “uploaded” into a virtual afterlife of their choice.

Jesus H Christ !! There are only 24 hours in a day !! When does he find the time ???

actor Eric Roberts

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000616/

Look at all the 2020 complete, filming, post production, pre production: 36 of them.

He is one of those actors I probably have seen 100 times in 100 things and nothing clicked in my mind on recognizing him. Just a no name person playing a character on screen.

575 credits in 575 movies and TV episodes and only a handful of familiar titles but still don't remember him in them.

Example: The Dark Knight. We all seen it, right? He was Maroni in it. Who the heck was Maroni? No one I remember.

I also didn't know he was Julia's brother.

Gladiator is 20 years old.

Released on May 5th, 2000, it became the 2nd biggest Summer film (behind Mission: Impossible III) and Best Picture of 2000.

Russell Crowe, who won Best Actor Oscar for it, initially almost turn it down because he didn't like the script.

Best scene of the entire film.

Ava https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8784956/

She the worst assassin for hire ever. After every job she asks her boss why did have to kill her last target. Before killing each target she asks them if they know why she was send to assassinate them. Aren't assassins for hire suppose to be indifferent detached and cold? Their boss or client tells them to kill that person and they just do it!!

Does James Bond question every job before he uses his license to kill? James Bond's boss: Go kill Blofeld, 007! 007 asks: Why? He is not that bad of a guy!

This Ava is being too much of a woman: wants to question everything and demands an explanation to everything. She is in the wrong line of work.
