I, Tonya (2017)
0 Stars out of 5

This is a very rare occurrence. I didn't finish the movie. I stopped it after maybe 30 minutes. I thought it was boring AF and the acting beyond hammy. Originally I wanted to see this because of Margot Robbie in spite of hating everything about Tonya Harding and even she couldn't save it. Don't waste your time with this one. SKIP! This movie doesn't deserve it's own thread.

I enjoyed the movie, I think the hamminess was part of the fun, BUT the whole time I was watching it I kept thinking that Margot Robbie reminded me of Jamie Pressley... so I kept thinking "I want to see the My Name Is Earl" version of this.  The second I pictured Earl and Randy as the two guys, like... my mind went there and refused to leave.  You ever have that experience?

The Blue Lagoon (1980)

I know it sounds like a transparent lie, but I swear I was watching this for research because I had an idea that would be drawing reference from it.  Obviously this movie is famous for it's nudity so I don't need to say anything about it except of my GOD there was so much nudity.

I liked it... there was a lot of "and then" storytelling which kinda bugged me, it felt very disconnected and I guess you can get away with that in a "hot stranded couple go skinny dipping and hook up" movie, but it makes it hard to tell where you are in the story.

Right off the bat the move threw me for a loop because the first thing you see is this etching of a city street and it just looked like the opening to Cheers, the theme song started playing in my head.  And the opening titles and the stuff with the boat looked like Treasure Island, it looked like something from the 60s and this was 1980, and I have no idea if that was intentional or not.   Like, "hey, we're referencing these classic adventure yarns but doing our own thing with them."

I also gotta say, Richard (I know his name because Brooke Shields screams his name about a thousand times)... his voice, I don't know if it was the audio quality from the time period or whatever, but I kept making me think of Greg Brady.  He sounded like Christopher Daniel Barnes to me, I kept expecting him to start monologuing like Spider-Man (he was the voice of Spider-Man).

Oh, and there's one thing I couldn't help but notice: their sh*t holds up AMAZINGLY.  Like, they're learning about the stages of life through these opticon photos, right? They don't even YELLOW after al the years on that island under that sun.  Clothes too, when they wear the nice ones, no moth holes or nothing.  Kinda took me out a little bit.

I thought I had Return To The Blue Lagoon as well but I don't, I gotta get that.  And I might throw in The Sleeping Dictionary too for good measure (plus I saw another Emily Mortimer movie recently so I thought maybe I could do a fun little mash-up too).



Morgan (2016)

Luke Scott doing a sort of Ex Machina meets... 24, I suppose... remix?  Contained thriller, few sets, character actors (including a nice appearance by Paul Giamatti).  A decent watch, nothing that really surprised me.  Mild recommend, if you like this sort of genre.
