My first 2017 movie: Logan. At this rate I would expect 2017 to be like 2016 when I saw none of the major nominations for best picture, best actor, best actress, etc,. prior to the Oscars. But that statement could be wrong right off the bat. This is not your usual superhero movie (in many ways, it is more reminiscent of a western) and it gave both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart plenty of opportunity to act and they both took advantage of that opportunity. And, considering Oscar's tendency to nominate actors and actresses who have portrayed characters with a physical or mental disability plus its tendency to honor those with long and distinguished careers, I would not be surprised if Stewart gets a best supporting actor nomination out of this one. I know, way too early to be having such thoughts.

"You've had a few hours given back to you from life. A few hours in which to change your minds and your hearts. When you came into the grounds of this inn, you came into a place as it was a year ago today. You were in your own time, but the house and garden and Gwyneth and I are in the time of last year. The day the bomb hit. When you go away and walk up the road you will have spent a night in an inn. But if you look back from the crest of the hill, the halfway house will not be here...but if you remember, it will be as you remember a forgotten snatch of song. It will be a picture before your eyes. Gone before you realize it is there. Or an echo in the hidden places of your mind. But you have been here...and the world is what you make it." -- Mervyn Johns, THE HALFWAY HOUSE.

‘Get Out’ dials up the scary side of race in America-

 

"A trip to meet the parents in the heart of safe, well-heeled, white suburban America: What could possibly go wrong?

The new film “Get Out” is a horror film about race, and part of the horror is just how close to normal it feels...

 

The movie has been praised by critics, and it’s exceeded most box office expectations. It has a lot more on its mind than just scaring its audience....

All of them are back for the new film, which is titled "T2 Trainspotting."

My spouse and I both enjoyed The Founder, and I was actually surprised when it was over, because the movie had gone by so fast. Who knew a film about McDonald's would be this interesting? Of course Michael Keaton has no problem diving into the character of wheeler dealer Ray Kroc. His perfect foil is Nick Offerman as Dick McDonald, deadpan, a solid rock of a man with strong ideas about integrity. John Carroll Lynch as Mac McDonald, Dick's brother, a taller but more accommodating man, is also outstanding. Linda Cardinelli as Joan Smith, eventually to be Joan Kroc, is quite lovely and looks good in the period costumes. At the end of the film Kroc offers what are now, I believe, called "alternative facts" about the founding of McDonald's.  The film is very much about two different visions of America as reflected in two different approaches to business.

 

For car buffs, this film is a must, with many fine 1950s vehicles on display.

 

If the subject interests you, you'll probably like the movie.

It's official: 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' will be called 'The Last Jedi'

I wonder if that'll cause a huge collective sigh of relief?

 

I once toyed with a "mock" movie title----

 

"Coming this summer.  Geroge Burns reprises his role as the Almighty with Albert Brooks and the delightful Goldie Hawn in the hilarious romp, "Oh, GOD!  Not AGAIN!?!"

I started out with NOTHING...and still have most of it left!
