Downsizing

Not the comedy it was marketed as.

A rather somber message about climate change and how people use those we consider less fortunate.  It was kinda dull until the arrival of actress Hong Chau (as a Vietnamese dissident/cleaning woman).  She was a revelation and the entire movie spun on her axis.  She was a delight.

All in all an ok effort.  

So-so movie with a breakout character who deserved better around her.

ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD

I had mild interest in this when I saw the trailer a few months ago (when Kevin Spacey was still in it). My interest increased to must see when it was announced Spacey was to be replaced by Christopher Plummer. Partly because I like Plummer, but more so just to see if they could pull it off.

Well, they sure did. I really enjoyed this, and Plummer was magnificent!

THE SHAPE OF WATER

I had such high hopes and I purposely saved it for New Year's Eve. Boy was it disappointing. I cannot fathom what Del Toro was thinking. I suppose he was aiming for a Grimm's fairy tale kind of love story. Big miss. The real shame of it is that the every single actor on screen did a great job. Set your expectations low if you go. Better yet, stay home and rewatch Pan's Labyrinth.

(Jeremy, I've discovered after many, many, many tries--the last being CRIMSON PEAK--that the works of del Toro just don't do it for me.  Critics and fan alike fall all over themselves for his films, but he's never clicked with me, for some reason.)

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI

Caught an evening show on January 1st.

Have to say that I am very glad I didn't pay full price for my ticket. There were some nuggets of enjoyment but there were too many times where I was mentally saying "WTF?" at what was happening onscreen.

Star Wars:The Last Jedi and The Shape of Water. I fell in love with the latter.

Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri.

Really good film.  It does make you think. It'll be a best picture contender at the Academy Awards (already won a few Golden Globe awards).

Represents the start of my wife and I's annual viewing of best picture nominations. I've figured out what might be nominated based on what the Golden Globes has done.

WONDER WHEEL

The right movie at the wrong time. Storaro remains a genius, Winslet became a genius and Loquasto made the best sets of his career.

People can do more for women in Hollywood by supporting Winslet's amazing performance than by spreading dirt.
