Saw fast 8 last night. There are some moments where the movie shines but I think I'm growing tired of this franchise. Vin Diesel is a terrible actor and the movie expects you to take huge leaps in logic just for the plot alone, let alone the action.
I don't disagree, but I still loved it. The action scenes are just so over the top and awesome, I can overlook the obvious plot holes, lol.

One plot hole I didn't care for...SPOILER ALERT...






Jason Statham's near-instant babyface turn with Dom. The whole theme of the franchise is family/brotherhood, and Dom instantly not only bonds with the guy who killed his buddy Han a few movies ago, but also trusts HIM, of all people, the rescue and return his son? Made for some awesome scenes, but there was really nothing in the script to explain why he would so quickly gain the team's trust. Even with Hobbs, they went from wanting to kick each other's ass, they exchange one funny joke, and then they're suddenly buddies? C'mon...

Watched Sandler's latest. Holy shit was it awful. The guy just has completely lost his way. Long gone are the days of Waterboy or Billy Madison. Hell I'd even take chuck & Larry or that's my boy. His Netflix stuff is soooooooo bad he should retire or get out of the deal.

I liked the new Sandler film, Sandy Wexler. I legit laughed a handful of times, my only knock would be it didn't need to be over 2 hours. I would have edited it to a more concise 100 minutes.

Saw Logan finally. This might be the best super hero movie ever. Dark, gritty, good drama, low on the over the top drawn out fights, etc. The Dark Knight I haven't seen in years, so maybe that still beats this, but off first watch this might be GOAT.

Saw Colonia with Emma Watson. I expected this to be shitty TV movie quality, but it was actually a great thriller based on true events at a prison camp in Chile.

Definitely too long. 5 minutes of that shit was too long. Only good part were the cameos.

I couldn't even finish the first Netflix one bc it was even worse.

Retirement or cancel the Netflix deal.

Majority would disagree, including Netlfix!!

NETFLIX USERS HAVE SPENT OVER 500,000,000 HOURS WATCHING ADAM SANDLER MOVIES

Also, to my surprise, it seems I wasn't alone in liking this, it actually got a positive review

Saw The Tourist with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. The film was pretty dumb and I guessed the "twist" within the first five minutes. Very superficial movie that tried to be old Hollywood with the glam and one liners, but it felt pretty weak.

Saw Get Out, which was very good. I don't love the forced diversity shit that society pushes, but it was cool seeing a movie of this type from a different cultural perspective. I don't know if it has any re-watch-ability, as I didn't get the feeling upon turning it off that it would be anything I'd ever want to revisit, but it was very enjoyable. It also had some good twists, albeit not completely shocking, but all executed well.

Saw a matinee showing of GOTG2 today and as it wasn't like the first one where it caught everyone off guard, this was still a pleasant surprise and seemed to transition seamlessly from vol. 1 with vol. 2! And a lot more silliness this time around. Solid fun show, I highly recommend it! And make sure to sit thru all the credits for snippets.

Guardians 2 was great. You cannot deny the talent James Gunn has. Seen it twice already.

SPOILER ALERT!!

Crow, have u figured out how in the hell they were able to reverse time and make Kurt looking as if he's 30 years old again! It was totally believable dude! If CGI...it was way better imaging than what they did with Rogue One!
And I thought it was lame ass cameo with Sly. Hope they ddnt have to add him just to boost ticket sales!

Just saw it too & I was saying that to Jen. I think it was probably a bit easier with Russell then it was with Fischer since he hasn't changed nearly as much as she did in the past decades.

Also wondering how long it took Vin Diesel to record his "line," he says the same 3 words the whole movie, but each one has a different inflection.

GOTG 2 was pretty well done. Loved the humor in it. As Dave said, watch every single end credit scene...there are a bunch!

I didn't know he was going to be in it, so I liked the cameo considering his character was an original member of the Guardians in the comics. Plus I like the banter between him and Rooker since it made me think of them two in Cliffhanger. Also, I doubt it was done to boost tickets sales, they really didn't need to, but Stallone's movies usually don't make a lot at the box office and this is already the #2 highest grossing film he's been in domestically, just after 3 days.

no, what I meant was they could've pretty much plugged anybody into the same role and it would've been fine. Other than that, I was okay with Sly making a cameo, even if a bit cheesy. LOL
