I've not seen KNIVES OUT yet, but this looks solid!

Wife and I are watching through both Father of the Brides since they're on Disney+.

Still excellent, but you really relate more with ole Dad when you have daughters that are old enough to have boyfriends. ooooh boy.

Knives out was a fun take on the genre

The movie Old. There's an 1 hr & 1/2 I can't get back (huh, kind of goes with the theme of the movie ;-) ). It is duuuuuuuumb! Oh gee, lets work in the idea of ethics and for the greater good at the end.

The INDY 5 trailer leaked...but it's been yanked from most places due to copyright. I expect this means that the full HD version will come out soon too, so keep an eye out.

I saw it before it was yanked and I can confirm one character casting spoiler for the impatient...

I don’t think so. I mean obviously the character isn’t pc by today’s standards, he’s still a beloved part of the franchise.

Easy, they do an emotional side scene where he and indy regale each other with stories of their youth, and its revealed his parents immigrated to Egypt for work and were killed in a pyramid/camel accident, at a young age with nowhere to go a kindly local family took him in

Watched Soleil Moon Frye's documentary (cut together from the video footage she shot during her entire youth compulsively) KID 90...which is basically a look at the lives of all the famous young actors of the 90's who she hung out with.

It's about 1.5 hours long (perhaps a little less) and for the first maybe 30-40 minutes, it's what I expected...a sort of unabashed look at people I grew up idolizing acting like I did as an idiot teen, partying, making out, smoking, drinking and doing varied drugs (albeit more depressing)...in the same decade that I did those things. The problem really arises about halfway through when it changes into Soleil basically coming to the realization (as she watches back the tapes) that she was literally SURROUNDED by young people so depressed that they were crying out for help...which she accepts she ignored/didn't see at the time...and as such, the film ends with a literal graveyard of people who either died by drug overdose or moreover from suicide around her....Jonathan Brandis chief amongst them (she dated him intensely and spoke about marrying him in the future).

It's also interesting to see her leave LA at like age 17 when things were spiralling a little out of control in her life with all the partying and drugs ect, to start a new chapter in NYC for University...only to IMMEDIATELY fall in with Justin Pierce, Harold Hunter (both of whom died as well from suicide and drugs respectively) and the rest of the basehead/nigh-homeless/Zoo York/KIDS movie party crowd which I would argue was even worse than the crowd she was hanging out with in LA. It's like watching someone leave a car wreck, and get on a train headed towards a brick wall. Her first consensual sex experience was with Charlie Sheen when he was 29 and she was 17...ick....a relationship she speaks FONDLY of on the Doc in the modern day segments, and the guy from House of Pain she dated who was 25 and dated her when she was 15...like her life was a mess, and even in the introspective moments in the modern day talking head segments I'm sitting there like "Lady...some of this stuff you're romanticizing was not romantic at all and much of it is very problematic."

I honestly thought that aside from a story or two of people losing their way mentally (Brandis, who was in the trailer), I was going to wistfully enjoy this look back at the decade that really defined me...but this documentary is depressing from the first 15 or so minutes and just gets more depressing as it goes.

She should have left these tapes locked up in a box. It serves no one to revisit the 90's through such a miserable lens.

Watched DC Super Pets with the kids at the theater. Actually pretty damn entertaining. Probably the DC movie I’ve enjoyed the most.

Just watched Bullet Train, with Brad Pitt. I don't get the low RT critic score (54%), trust the audience score (76%) it was a blast. Good fun, good action, twisty plot (don't waste time trying to follow it at the time, it will explain it later), a nice balance between tongue-in-cheek and action/adventure.

Loads of little easter eggs too, cameos galore and many Deadpool 2 crossovers. Not surprising considering David Leitch directed. I guess it was being made at the same time at The Lost City (also good fun, if a bit more switch your brain off). I did not spot Aaron Taylor-Johnson at the time, he's a real chameleon these days.

A solid eight venomous South African snakes out of ten. Definite popcorn movie.

I want to watch it, and this was pretty much the consensus of my friend who saw it in theatre...that it's a blast.

Also, for what it's worth I put WAYYYYYYYY more stock in the Audience Score over the critic score these days...I find critics intensely out of touch with what is fun and good.
