They only have one movie on the docket this year. Marvel has 7-8.

That said. I'm going to watch.

Whenever they drop that Han Solo movie, my but will be in a seat too.

#543770 Clint Eastwood's work that comes out next month looks great in the trailers. I remember when the news came out of the incident thinking it would make a great movie:



Jim Caviezel is back this time as Paul in March ...



I assumed by the casting and the character with "The Untold Story" attached that this would be a disaster. But the trailer is interesting:



The Coen Brothers have taken on the task of recreating one of the most iconic films of all time which itself was a remake of a Howard Hughes film ... Scarface. No trailers have been released yet. This intrigues me. Ethan Coen is also directing the Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly send-up of Holmes & Watson.

And I'll just leave these right here ...

#543792 I know it came out last year, but for those of you willing to explore your artistic side... The Greatest Showman is fantastic.

On a completely different note: Has anyone joined "MoviePass"? I just joined and will follow up if I think it worthwhile... It is supposed to grant you up to 1 "2D" ticket EVERY DAY for $9.99/mo.

#544118 Though it came out in December (and is still showing), I would highly recommend The Greatest Showman, which is a story about P.T. Barnum.

#544120 I got shot down after proposing this film by Mrs. Sly on our last date. Wow, did I lose this discussion by having to see Downsizing. I cannot begin to tell you how awful that film turned out to be.

And Haize, please hand over your man card for admitting to be excited to see an Oprah movie.

I second that. One of the most enjoyable movies I've seen all year. This will definitely go in our home collection and we've been listening to the soundtrack nonstop in our house.

Masterworx Theater in Lynchburg is doing the musical "Barnum" in March and have auditions this week.

Mrs. Cider was the same way, so I ended up seeing it solo yesterday.

Umm She’s a Co Star and it’s a movie from a classic piece of sci fi. Lead character is the ‘new’ Captain Kirk. So that negates the Oprah factor according to Man Card Judges

#544140 I'm with you on this one PH. I am also not convinced sly is in position to pull any man cards.

As far as that air force hero train movie...I have very strong opinions on why that shouldn't be a movie but I'm trying to stay in a good mood.

Well it shows the AF doing more than sitting in chairs so that’s different.....
I like he’s using the actual people that took part. So that’s cool
Eastwood is about the only director who puts out Pro American Movies anymore

#544483 I'm looking forward to A Wrinkle in Time in spite of Oprah. LOVED those books as a kid!

Ready Player 1 looks good, but I'm not sure it will measure up to the book. Not sure I'll see it in the theater, but will probably watch it at home.

And I am required to see all Marvel and DC movies, as well as all Star Wars movies, so those are all on the list.

#544497 It came out last year I think but if Gary Oldman is not nominated for an Oscar for Darkest Hour, the Oscar committee needs to disband immediately

He’s currently the odds-on favorite to win, so I think it’s safe to say he’ll be nominated.

Yeah, it'll be a disappointment. It would have been better suited for a Netflix limited series.

Darkest Hour = thumbs up. Really enjoyed that one, and it was in a theater with reclining seats which made it even better.

#545245 Don't pay much attention to movies these days, but A24 horror film Hereditary has been blowing up at the film festivals. Will go see it opening week if I can even remember it by late June.

#553136 I've been catching up as Redbox let's me

Black Panther - Over hyped but still an awesome action movie. Killmonger was one of the best villians I've seen in a while.

Thor Ragnarok - Easily in the top three Marvel movies for me with Winter Soldier and Iron Man 2.

Infinity War - They made the villians fallible without making him weak. They gave him weaknesses without letting the heros have "Plot Armor"

The Greatest Showman - About time I got to it. It took Redbox forever to get it. One of the best visual musicals I've seen. My only issue is the songs were all clearly studio. None felt like it was live.
