I haven't figured out the second act, yet.

You need to collab with Bert

Watched Atomic Blonde last night.

I did a search and didn't find any posts about this movie. I actually thought this film would have its own thread, but I guess not.

I was pleasantly surprised. This is a better-than-average action-oriented spy/thriller. Damn good, actually. No significant weaknesses in plot, script, performance, cinematography or direction. It's also interesting to see how John Wick has affected they way fight sequences are shot and edited. Recommended to all who appreciate the genre. I give it 3.75 (out of 5) hikes.

I liked it too.

I think it set out to be a female John Wick-ish film. I thought it did a nice job. I might be biased because I'm a huge Theron fan.

I thought the fight scene in the stairway was really well done. It was obvious in the choreography that he hit harder than her and she was hurt by the blows.

I mean, I watch it all, but it's fairly ridiculous that the women just do what dudes do to giant motherfucking dudes and it works. This took into account that it was a woman fighting a man, and it worked, at least in my head.

For those who love music bio-pics, you've got to watch "The Dirt". Those are four characters that are intensely difficult to portray authentically, and these young actors just nailed it.

It's about six months old, but I just watched The Meg on HBO. I had planned to see it in the theater but when the imdb rating was 5.6, I don't usually go if it's below a 7.0 rating. I wouldn't of been disappointed and should have gone. It's cheesy to a certain extent and has cliches as you would expect, but the special effects and the action kept your interest. Instead of the Bill Paxton type character always saying, "get me out of here man", they did have one, but a black guy who couldn't swim. I could of imagined the Rock playing the main character, that would of been too cheesy, I think Jason Statham was the best choice, although half of what he said, I can't understand.

I did get the full effect at home, I have a 75" Samsung 4K and a huge surround sound, and the movie has excellent surround sound. I gave it a 7.0 and it was a good action adventure and worth watching.

Definitely one of the better movies of its kind. Kostner and Harrelson make a great team. Kostner's portrayal of Frank Hamer is basically an old fart version of Eliot Ness.

I would have happily paid to see this in the theater.

Can't wait to see this.

I'm almost done with reading the book below and Bonnie and Clyde is the last chapter. Hamer was a badass mfker.

I think that may be the next book I read. Thanks for sharing.

I hope the movie stayed true to the story and what he was really like. These things always take liberties, but some are worse than others. The last Bonnie and Clyde movie I saw was presented from her point of view, and wasn't terribly impressive.

Just finished it. Had to watch the death scene twice. Damn scene gave me goosebumps both times. Expertly done. Loved the view from the Rangers instead of just Bonnie and Clyde.

This was really good. I donít know the liberties they took but nothing seemed outlandish. The camerawork was really really good. Nothing groundbreaking but it was notably well done. Same with the music.

What really drives the movie forward was the acting. There were a LOT of places the acting could have fallen flat and the points the movie was pushing would miss. Harelson and Kostner have laid some eggs in their career but this is really well down and it all worked. For me anyway.

The scenes where Costner and Harrelson delivered their "what shaped me" stories were both great. They both hit it out of the park.

There were several places it could have fallen apart, but was held together by great performances.

Spoiler!


I'm sure there are other scenes too, but looking back, it took some really powerful performances to hold it together, because that story is so crazy, the Great Depression was so long ago, and the production was pretty damned ambitious in what it attempted to tackle.

I'm sure it won't get any buzz about it, but this is pretty much the diametric opposite of Michael Bay.

I do wonder if the gas station scene actually happened. Wouldn't surprise me if he did something like that, though. I'm going to pick up the book that Pennywise recommended, but from what little I have read about Hamer he was a tough customer with a short fuse and a very personalized view of right and wrong.
