I saw Phantom of the Opera last night. I did not know Gerald Butler could sing like that. He was great. Very sad story and ending of course. It isn't the same watching it in non HDR haha.

I saw more movies. But last night I finally saw the Exorcist and boy was that a disturbing movie. It was edited out though so I need t one day see the uncut version. But I did not expect that kind of ending.

I watched the Solo Star Wars movie it was pretty cool. The spin offside stories are good but the main series is just blah. They could have done so much with Star Wars but they just went with copy paste.

Episode 8 was terrible too.

I was surprised by how much I liked Solo. So far, everything that has come out of the Original Trilogy era has been golden as far as I'm concerned (Episodes IV-VI, Rogue One, Solo). I'm hoping the next spin-off movie they do (if they do another one) is the Obi-Wan film.

Man, I haven't seen a movie since Avengers: Infinity War, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I sure wish I had more time to go out and see movies. I'm hoping to see Bohemian Rhapsody in a few days. I'm really hoping it's as good as it looks.

Yea watching all these movies takes a lot of my game time lol. I do hope Bohemian Rhapsody would be good but want to say I saw an article that doesn't make it seem like it was good. I didn't read into it though.

I watched Overlord it was pretty good I liked it. Lots of bad reviews complaining but they are just idiots. It's WW2 with Nazi experiments, not a zombie movie. If you enjoy a good war movie and Wolfienstien games then you will enjoy this.

I finished Terminator 1 and 2. Also I saw The Commuter which was basically taken again. Also got to see John Wick 2. I really like it and I think it was better than the first John Wick. Can't wait for the third movie. Lego Movie Part 2 I think was also better than the first movie. Batman was hilarious per usual.

I finished Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood recently and I gotta say, it's amazing. Possibly the best anime I've ever seen. The pacing is great and never lets up, and even the more character-centric episodes are really good. But man, the last 15-20 episodes are pretty dang epic. Also, its epilogue episode is also one of the best I've ever seen; I wish more anime (and TV shows in general) would dedicate an entire episode to what happens after the final conflict. :D

I also saw Bleach live action. I think it was as best as they could make it to be. Frame for frame for the most part it was very similar to the same as the manga but of course it all can't be. Oh and I don't like the guy they cast as Byakuya haha.

I need to rewatch that and also watch the live action too. I heard the live action was good but don't expect it to be amazing.

I just finished watching the new Bumblebee Transformers movie. As an 80's kid and fan of G1 Transformers, I enjoyed this movie.  It's not the G1 movie we all would love to see but it's an awesome 80's Transformers movie. It's still Bayformers design for Bumblebee and the 3 bad bots but they don't look bad and all other Transformers that appear are G1 style and that put a big smile on my face. It still pains me to see M. Bay plastered all over the credits for producer and Bay films but thankfully that's all he did.

 

If this is going to be a reboot for a new Transformers cinematic world thingy then it is off to a good start and I am waiting to see what they will do next.

I recently saw both Creed 1 and 2. I love it and it parallel the original rocky very well. Captain Marvel was really good for me. Don't need to see it for Endgame though.

Saw Shazam last weekend. It was pretty good; DC is finally on a roll with their movies, even if I thought Aquaman was a little bit messy with its story and runtime yet still enjoyable.

 

No story-specific spoilers here, but one of the cool things is that Shazam actually focuses more on the human drama element of the movie more than the superhero part; I'd say it's ultimately... 60/40 in that regard. The superhero parts aren't bad either (the villain is a lot better than I thought he'd be; Mark Strong really leans into his character here), but the film is obviously made stronger by Billy Batson's story as a boy who discovers who his true family is.

 

All in all, it's a pretty strong superhero origin film, and one that actually builds up the villain from the start and gives them the screentime they deserve.

I loved Shazam. I wasn't expecting to like it but I'm glad I got to see it. I totally agree with you and this is a great origin story for him. I also didn't expect how that fight in the end would have gone in the movie and that surprised me. It was a fun cool movie to watch. I though Aquaman was great.

DC has done great on the origin movies like Wonder Woman and Aqua Man. I need to see Shazam when it comes out. So hopefully they finally have things under control. The trailer for the Joker movie looks pretty sweet and I'm looking forward to the flash movie.

Just saw Edge of Tomorrow last night and it was really good. If you haven't seen it, go watch it and don't look up anything about it.

I watched Glass and it was good. I saw a lot of people complaining about it saying it wasn't what they thought it would be. It's a movie continuing two other movies Unbreakable and Split so if you have not seen those you will be confused. I thought it was a pretty good sequel for those movies and makes me want to see more from this story.

I saw Minority Report recently and it was amazing. Great movie that will get you thinking when it is done.

 

Just saw The Matrix again and boy it was so much better the second time. I was able to talk through all the messages in the movie with my best friend and it is just mind blown.

Just finished the Matrix Trilogy and boy that was amazing the second time around.  Didn't get any of this the first time around. But I'm glad I saw it again. So much symbolism and biblical reference it is insane.
