Not bad. Better than the old television movie.

Hopefully it means a return to bigger and better horror films in the mainstream. The 2010s have been pretty dismal for horror.

Well-made, more creepy than scary (though there are a few good jump-scares), a snappy script and good acting from the kids. The flow of the movie was a little messy at times (some of the scene-to-scene transitions seemed a bit abrupt) but that's a minor quibble. Wish they had delved a little more into the mythos behind Pennywise (in the end, he's just...kinda there for no real rhyme or reason; thus he lacks the raw monster gravitas of say, Michael Myers or Freddy Krueger or Jason Voorhees). Regardless, you will root for these Losers.

B+

Girl's Trip
4 stars out of 5

Way better than those white girl movies in the same vein. It was actually funny and the women were like real people. Except Jada Pinkett, who never ever ages.

The Dark Tower - 3/5
Didn't think it was as bad as I was led to believe, it was a mostly acceptable corny blockbuster movie. Whatevs.

I just think people expected more than a corny blockbuster out of it.

I don't have a horse in the race, it's just that I don't think the source material deserved the Brendan Fraser/The Mummy treatment.

Speaking of steaming piles of disappointment...

I saw Alien: Covfefe a few weekends back. A major step down from Prometheus, which is saying a lot. Some cool Alien action sprinkled throughout, but the characters were flat and dull and my god, did the movie really need to screech to a halt so Bassfender could play flute with himself?

A very generous 6/10

God damn I am addicted to Food Network. Not constantly, but it comes in spells. This year I've watched Next Food Network Star, Worst Cooks in America Celebrity Edition, and Dessert Games. Why??? At least I got over Chopped and Cupcake Wars. When in the throes of my anorexia I had it on ALL the time. Still love Top Chef though because Padma Lakshmi <3

I enjoyed Top Chef until it became a commercial for Glad plastic wrap. Pretty entertaining for a 'reality' show, to a point.

Yes people love calling something "the worst thing ever" when it doesn't meet their lofty expectations.

logan lucky - B.7

fun heist movie, nothing more than what it was supposed to be. sometimes movies like this that don't take themselves seriously end up less enjoyable specifically because of that approach, but this isn't one of them. not a movie that needs to be seen in the theater, but worthy of a stream/dvd watch.

Much like the Terminator films, they really should've stopped at 2.

Idk if I'd be spoiling anything to say more but It doesn't really have an origin in the book either

I'm a little baby when it comes to jump scares so Idk if I'll even go see this as much as I like horror novels and I drag myself to any Stephen King adaptation it's another case of I hate movies

Wyatt Earp (1994)

this 3hr behemoth came out a year after Tombstone and wasn't well received like its pulpier predecessor

but uneven pacing and all I thought it was a more interesting film and found myself completely engrossed in following the man's life made into legend and the abandonment of typical 3 act story telling was refreshing felt like watching a fictionalized biography

this, was one of my dad's favorite westerns when i was a kid, along with Tombstone. i remember the VHS tapes. kind of an odd choice to watch now. someday i'll watch some westerns too.
