that format worked just fine for Barney Miller
haha, I've never seen that before.
The Clonus Horror - This has an undeservedly low rating on IMDb, I thought this was pretty cool low budget 1979 scifi movie with Roddenberry and Cronenberg tones to it, Maybe this gets written off due to Peter Graves and Dick Sargent? Not sure, but I liked it.
Shin Godzilla - Did not disappoint! I haven't seen any of the Evangelion stuff, but maybe I'll check it out now on the strength of this. Loved all the fan service stuff, loved the monster, forgave some CGI that was cheesy in spots, but that's to be expected. I guess the actor who played the American liaison or whatever learned English just for this movie. Also loved all of the musical cues brought back from all eras of Godzilla, I was all smiles. Made a great double feature with...
Kong: Skull Island - Was expecting the worst, but ended up liking this one, Kong ended up winning me over. Neat monster on monster action and John C. Reilly kind of saves it. Note: there are giant logical holes to be found on a frequent basis, just turn off the brain for this one. Excited for what may come with a possible Legendary Pictures shared monster universe.

Killing Ground - thoroughly disturbing Australian horror/thriller. Difficult to watch at times but solidly done. Not graphic violence as much as disturbing situations - particularly if you are a parent of a small child. Pretty sure that the driving philosophy behind this film was more or less "men are terrible." By the end I wanted to the protagonist's boyfriend dead as much as the antagonists.
Guardians 2 - Nothing new to add to the discussion of this one other than the general consensus that it was well done but not as good as the first one.
She's definitely one of those people with whom I have a difficult time separating her performance from her public persona.
She seems a very specific type of insufferable in interviews. Like, you would dislike her, but feel bad about it, because the only actual problem with her is that she had very supportive parents and went to a Montessori school?
Free Fire - had some stuff in it that worked but overall was kind of a disappointment. It feels like Wheatley was going for a kind of Tarantino thing but just doesn't stick the landing. It tries to combine the gritty realism of what a drawn out gun fight would likely be like (lot's of scuttling around in the dirt and broken glass, a lot of missed shots) with a kind of "cool" stylistic affect and the two sides seem at odds with each other.
