I have it on my list on Netflix, just have not gotten round to watching it yet being that it's 3+ hours long, I need to set aside some time.

fwiw, if it helps, there's an intermission point (fairly clearly marked) that works as a break-point if you want to watch it in two halves.

RRR is nothing truly special in the long context of Bollywood, but it moves along quickly and the leads have chemistry enough to work.

Bollywood has so many great dumb hits ready for you all to discover.

Kinda shocking that this is its first timing being adapted, but it looks good!

Watched The Pale Blue Eye on Netflix.

My review is a snore out of ten.

AVATAR: TWOW just blew past 2billion in the box office.

I have a friend who finally went to see it on the weekend, and he said that the theatre was still rammed full....the legs this thing has are even more insane than the first one.

I maintain, as I always have, you don't bet against James Cameron.

I still haven't seen the new Avatar. I went to the movies for the first time in ages today. Coaxing my son back after he got scared and we had to leave a screening of Sing 2 about 2 years ago. There was a chameleon character with a glass eye and she lost it and replaced it with an apple and he utterly freaked out. Nithing scares this kid but that broke him! Anyway, today we got through a screening of Matilda so fingers crossed, movies are back on!

Apart from that, my home movie watching the last few days has done Jurassic World, Jurassic Park II, Jurassic Park III, Jurassic World Dominion. None of them touch the original of course but I like the first World movie. The rest may be blah but I never get tired of people running from well CGI'ed dinosaurs. It's my first time seeing Dominion and I enjoyed seeing the old gang back together and with the new gang and the Steve Jobs-esque bad guy but it's pretty meh.

Watched LADY SNOWBLOOD (1973), which was Tarantino's inspiration for KILL BILL....which I mean even certain shots are cribbed from the former. And no offence to Uma Thurman, but Meiko Kaji is a much better "revenger" than her.

It's a gruesome, but very good film. It FEELS a little exploitative at times, but never overt (for reference Kaji's career prior to this was dominated by like "female jailed in heat" type pure exploitation roles) considering it was Toei who was not in the habit of doing such films. There are some GORGEOUS scenes in this....clearly done on a set....but gorgeous nonetheless.

My only real complaint was that anytime someone got stabbed or slashed the blood spurt was unrealistically insane (and cartoonishly red like paint), and then it would run like water out of the body and the sound effect they used was like a creek of running water...LOL.

I dunno if I'll ever watch the sequel, it's apparently not as good...but I quite enjoyed this one.

This looks good. Gyllenhall always brings the goods.
