I haven't heard one negative word about Parasite. Going to see it this week. Every foreign film I end up watching seems to deliver (Pan's Labyrinth, The Raid).

I watched Gretel & Hansel today. I wasn't expecting much, but it turned out ok. It feels like The Witch or It Comes at Night. It has a slow pace (but comes in under 90 minutes) and has some nice visuals. Unfortunately things fall apart by the end. I'm not sure why they tied this to the fairy tale because I don't think that is going to draw folks to see it and it only follows the story in the broadest sense (woman attracts starving kids with food). I would suggest folks that liked The Witch to watch it.

I'm 70% through as I had to pause it as I had to go to work. I am digging the shit out of it and I went in cold. No idea about much before I watched and wow is it great.

I hope the last 30% lives up to what I've seen so far. :-)

I saw "Judy" last night, Red Box rental. I enjoyed the film, but I'm near 70 yo, so I think many younger folks would not be as interested in the film. It's basically a month of her life taken from 1968 about six months before she died at age 47. She's flat broke, sleeping on the floor at parties, has two kids in school that she has to dump them on her ex-husband, but wants to get a home and get her children back. She's making $150 for an occasional matinee show, but finds out the only way to make real good money is to go to England. Her older adult daughter Liza Minnelli is glossed over in the film with just a brief appearance.

She makes the trip and she is basically self-destructive. If she's not on pills, uppers and downers, she on the bottle, a real boozer and smoker. They have to drag her out the dressing room for her first show, which she pulls off and gets great reviews. Her problem, she married a much younger man while in England she briefly met at a party in LA and all is well, but for a very short time. Then things go sour and she gets smashed and goes on stage and basically cusses out the audience and gets fired.

It's a sad flick. I remember her at this stage in life because in the 60's Jack Parr had a weekly talk show, I think it was Friday nights at 10pm on NBC. Judy was one of his regulars, I think she did it for the money, minimum wage for an entertainer. She was usually high and spoke erratically and was a sight for sore eyes.

Judy Garland shortly before her death



Renee Zellweger as Judy in the movie

I just watched Fantasy Island at the theater. I had no idea this existed until my wife suggested it (we have Regal Unlimited and time off so it didn't matter to me). I was thinking it was probably a bad comedy where a group of stars from yesteryear wanted a vacation and decided to shoot a movie to pay for it. Then I saw the Blumhouse logo came up and I realized it was horror. Then it started and I realized it was based on the show. Then I realized why I had no idea this existed. It is pretty forgettable.

The other movie my wife said we could see was Downhill which I hadn't heard anything about either. I assume it is about under privileged kids who go to the Olympics.

Considering how many movies we see in the theater I'm surprised there are two movies in the mall theater that I hadn't seen a trailer for or a poster somewhere.

I saw Fantasy Island on Sunday. You're right- it's totally forgettable.

Very different movie, unfortunately it's a retread and the French already did it better.

The original idea is pretty good, and it kind of turned into a meme when people thought it was true.

Family goes to a ski lodge for vacation, dad sees a [planned] avalanche coming towards the chalet, panics, completely forgets about his family sitting on the deck at a table with him and beats feet for safety, ostensibly leaving them to die. Now he has to endure the rest of the vacation where everyone, including said family, saw his cowardly act of self perservation.

Original movie - supposedly a sharp dark comedy
