Tolkien (2019)
9 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Got to my emotions towards the end. 100% worth one watch.

Differ with Spike and some of his messages, which he rubbed in my face for two hours. That was his wish, and he is consistent. Denzel would have run away with Best Actor in '93 for Malcolm X, if not for the last 90 seconds of that one. Spike just had to do it then, too. The put upon beautiful black people portrayed in this film are solid, but then at times almost a caricature. The KKK are caricatures for sure. The civil being deadly extremists, and the friendly mentally challenged. Point is regarding Spike about the only thing a white guy like me can do to make this guy happy is if I publicly announce I am indeed a no good racist white m**********r, followed by self immolation. Simpler steps I could take, according to this flick; stop listening to the Allman Brothers, riding a chopper while sporting a beard, sell the pickup truck with the gun rack in the back window, and treat my big fat wife better.
I recommend this film. It's 100% watchable from start to finish.
I was not yet in middle age when She's Gotta Have it, then Do The Right Thing came out. The first made me a Spike Lee fan, even though he would have considered it a waste of fluid to spit on me if I walked by him at the time. The second is an ALL TIME CLASSIC. As long as I can afford a movie ticket I'll check out the new Spike Lee Joint.

A Star Is Born

Second watch was better than the first, especially Gaga. Half the time she was on screen the audience were frozen to their seats, hardly breathing. You could hear a pin drop. Or feel it is a better description. Some super strong vibe that you could feel over the volume of the film. That's rare. Watched again at home shortly after it came out for the small screen. So three times. They were all great.
[This movie got dissed LAMF at the Academy Awards. Hang in there Cooper]

The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot

So much was right with this film, but I couldn't suspend belief a couple times. I took the story seriously. If I was missing allegories, so be it... I wasn't ready for that watching this one only a couple days after "Us". There was a lot to like about this movie. A fine drama was in there somewhere. Even AFTER the unbelievable stuff. I just thought to myself during the movie that this is what we (mature movie goers who don't favor superheroes in tights) get from the writers coming up. Or film after film that tries to pound it home how rotten the USA is. Hmmm, maybe that's why those superhero flicks are so prevalent & popular? Not sure to give this 2 stars - the negative Me - or 4 - the positive Me, so split the difference. Saw this at a theater, may watch again on the small screen at a later time to double check the above...
[If you are under 40 or even 45 you probably cannot appreciate the performance of the 74 year old Sam Elliot.]

Rust Creek

Good casting, acting, locations - sets. All of the main characters had their moments. Jay Paulson especially. Hermione Corfield carried the Lead. Keeps you watching. Winter's Bone it's not, but it is a nice little movie for sure!
