I've seen all of those except for Wonder. I was very pleased with The Greatest Showman.

Agreed... Hope Clint turns up.
Last time I was there about a month ago I sat next to Hugh Jackman... :)
Not to derail anything, but you sat next to Hugh Jackman? What was the movie? And do you mean he was near by, or you actually sat right next to him?

Josey Wales would be a good one to see at the theater. I got to see Unforgiven about two years ago at the theater, so I'd definitely go see Wales if I had the chance.

I saw Avengers: Endgame last night and liked it a lot as well. One of the best of the whole franchise (Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man are other favorites of mine).

I want to get to Shazam soon. It looks fun.
And fun it was. O0 The earlier movies in this franchise were so dark, so it's nice to see they've lightened them up, and I like the results.

I also saw Missing Link, the stop-motion animated movie, recently. I didn't know what to expect going in, other than the trailer looked fun. The movie was better than I expected.

I've always liked some of the various incarnations of Nancy Drew (like the movies from the late 1930s and the 1970s TV series with the Hardy Boys), so I checked out the newest movie version Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase. Nancy is very modernized here. She's a skateboarder and gets into some trouble, until she finally starts to put her energy into something more productive, which is investigating an old woman's house who complains about seeing and experiencing weird supernatural things. I liked it. The movie was made direct to DVD, but did get a limited theatrical run last month prior to its DVD release.

It doesn't bother me either way what Clint decides to do next. He could direct a film about two ants trying to survive the hustle and bustle of a New York sidewalk and I'd still be lining up to see it.
Sounds like a fun idea for an animated movie. ;D

I would definitely check out the movie if he makes it.

So I watched 35 movies during the month of March. How did everyone else do? :D ;D

And only one of those was a trip to a theater. I usually go a few times each month.

When I first saw the topic from the main page, I thought it might be legit until I clicked on it (like, maybe there would be some reason to delete members who never posted and haven't been on the board in years or something :D). Then I remembered what day it was.

So that's what you were doing earlier when I saw you looking at the members list.

Actually, Ruben Fleisher is one of the executive producers of The Mule.
He also directed Gangster Squad, a Warner Bros movie with Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Michael Peņa and Nick Nolte. Gangster Squad is not a great picture but definitely watchable thanks to his cast.

Cool, I didn't know he'd remained involved with the movie. Zombieland is a really good movie, and I've seen Gangster Squad too, which I also liked.

"From the director of Zombieland" would have been interesting. :D

The First Traveling Saleslady was on Turner Classic Movies the other day. I'd meant to post but didn't get a chance to do so before the movie was on. I believe at least a few around here have seen it. I haven't so I recorded it so I could check it out sometime.

Christopher's post in the movies I've watched this week topic about renting dvds reminded me of this article a few weeks back.

https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2019/03/theres-only-one-surviving-blockbuster-left-on-planet-earth/
Related: the New York Times ran a story about what is now the last extant Blockbuster store ... in Bend, Oregon.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/06/business/last-blockbuster-store.html
That's interesting! And I do hope the last one does remain open for a long time. The locations for these stores seems random. I had an account at a Blockbuster when I was in college but I didn't go there often (they were always more expensive than other options).

You still have a store that rents DVDs ... and  a VHS player that works! :D

I have a laserdisc player. (No guarantee it still works.) And a bunch of laserdiscs ... Clint, mostly.
Yeah, still at least a couple left in the area! I hope they remain open for a long time to come. Often if people still rent DVDs, they just use Red Box and I'd rather still support a store where people work (however it had been a while since I'd rented movies). I hope the VCR lasts for a long time to come too! :D Maybe VHS will come back like records and record players have. You can now go to a Walmart and find a small section for records. So who knows, maybe cassettes and videos will come back!

I watched three movies yesterday (I didn't have to go to work), and it struck me as being funny that I watched one of those movies on a rented DVD from a video store, one from Netflix, and the other was on VHS. I never had laserdisc but maybe I oughta hunt down a player for that. :D

I saw the report today that Jan Michael Vincent died last month. He's best known for Airwolf in the 1980s, which I remember watching as a kid. I've always liked his role in The Mechanic with Charles Bronson.
