I took my kids to see Solo yesterday.  We all enjoyed it.  Definitely better than Rogue One.
I enjoyed Solo and Rogue One about the most of any of the new ones, and yet they could easily be considered just money grabs.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Not that good...
I thought the script for Jurassic World was awful. Does Fallen Kingdom compare to that then?

I thought Black Panther was very good. O0

I saw Ocean's 8 today and enjoyed it. I've only seen the remake of Ocean's 11 once, and that was back when it first came out. I haven't seen the sequels to it.

I'll probably check out The Incredibles 2 soon.

Nope, Damien Chazelle directed all three films.
Oh. O0 I haven't seen those other movies and don't know the director.

I was a fan of both "Whiplash" and "La La Land"  (and I absolutely hate musicals), so I'll probably see this at some point.
Perhaps AKA thought he was posting in the Star is Born thread?

I think whenever it comes about time to make this movie, it'd be great if Eastwood would make a trip out here to Ohio to Armstrong's hometown, and maybe I could take a little trip up the interstate and see him. :D
You know, Ryan Gosling did make that Ohio trip to the Armstrong museum a while back.

   TCM Channel is a joke. They didn't put one movie of Eastwood's on that day.
I think they have played an Eastwood movie or two for his birthday before, but don't every year. They did show Kelly's Heroes and Where Eagles Dare last weekend as part of their Memorial Day marathon though.

I might go as far as to say that 15:17 to Paris is the worst Clint has made. As far as The Rookie goes, I've always found it to be fun.

Has anyone else seen Isle of Dogs yet? I thought it was excellent. Took my five-year-daughter a couple of weeks ago and she loved it too. In fact tonight she was talking about it. I would probably rank it near the bottom of Wes Anderson's films, but that's only because I love all his films so much. And even if you don't care for Anderson's style, you might still like this one.

I saw Isle of Dogs too and liked it. Not too long after seeing it, I finally watched The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I think I've seen all of Anderson's movies now. My favorites are still Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums.

Happy birthday to Clint!

I have a variation on this theme that I thought it would be fun to discuss. What films would you recommend to someone who was familiar with his work but who had told you something like, “he is a good director, but I think he is a really mediocre actor. He acts the same in every movie!” I hear some variation of this opinion fairly frequently. What films would you choose to convince someone who was not completely unfamiliar with his work but who was not impressed so fat that he is a better actor than they think? Would you choose these same films, or different ones, and how would you go about making that decisiom?
Then I would definitely go with The Beguiled and The Bridges of Madison County.

I think there's some mention of forgeries in that story I linked to as well. I wonder if the forgers would be willing to become legitimate and actually sell them as prints. ;D

There were some cool sculptures in the series too.

I just found this website that talks about the paintings:

After Night Gallery was cancelled, many of the artworks used to introduce the stories were either altered for use in other productions, or sold by Universal Studios. Most of them remain in private hands, but occasionally, one will surface at an auction house.

I hadn't realized it was an hour show the first two seasons and then became a half hour its third season. I was reading about the series on Wikipedia, and it mentioned that the syndicated version edited some parts, and even added others (since they had to edit the first two seasons into half hour shows). So it'll be nice to have them all unedited as they originally aired during the original run.

The complete series of Night Gallery. I already have the first season but picked this up for a good price on ebay. O0

It does make sense to go with something early, something iconic, and then something a little more contemporary.

So maybe I'd go with:

A Fistful of Dollars or For a Few Dollars More
Dirty Harry
In the Line of Fire (we can count a 25 year old movie as being more contemporary, right? ;))

I would also be tempted to go with something a little different, like Play Misty for Me or The Beguiled. Both of those are favorites of mine, though I guess the latter might be a little too different to introduce someone to Eastwood with. The Bridges of Madison County would be another possibility for something a little different.

I love Frasier. I haven't seen a lot of Cheers, just a few episodes here and there. I did watch the first episode not long after I'd finished Frasier on Netflix. Maybe I'll get back to it sometime.

Recently purchased the complete series of Just Shoot Me. I already own the first two seasons (season one is very short). I didn't start watching the show until I was in college and would catch late night reruns.
