Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

My first attempt to view this on cable 6 years ago was unsuccessful.  With what little I viewed then, I was disappointed and switched channels.  Even with what little I?d seen, I disagreed with all of the positive reviews I?d heard and was surprised that it received numerous Academy Award nominations.

The movie came up in recent conversations with friends and I decided to add it to my list of films to give a second chance.  I?m glad I did, because I loved it this time around.  I don?t know, maybe I had to go through a divorce and then a break-up to really enjoy it!  Ha ha ha, not really.  Those have nothing to do with it.  I?m hoping a sequel is in the works.

Joker (2019)

Upon hearing about this movie, I was curious but had no burning desire to see it.  Even after hearing good things about it and seeing Joaquin Phoenix win the Best Actor Oscar for his performance, I was unmoved.  As with Mad Max: Fury Road, Joker came up in recent talks with friends and I decided I?d check it out.

My girlfriend and I watched this last night and both came away very disappointed.  It was not entertaining.  It was overlong and dull.  Phoenix is deserving of his award, but I don?t consider him a good Joker.  To me, the best versions are Caesar Romero, Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. 

Overboard (1987)

Coming away disappointed with Joker, Cydney and I turned to this comedy.  My first viewing and enjoyed it very much.  Goldie Hawn is a doll and I?ve enjoyed a lot of Kurt Russell?s movies ever since first seeing him portray The King in 1979?s TV biopic produced by Dick Clark, Elvis.
