It feels like ages since I sat down and just watched one movie after another movie after another.  And it helps that these aren't parts movies, but still new movies I hadn't seen before.

I finally caught "Passengers" and it was... fine.  Nothing really jumped out at me, even the ship interiors were somehow... if not mundane, I'd seen a lot of that design motif, but I have investigated a lot of futuristic architecture designs and the Avalon interiors fit those established aesthetics quite well.  But nothing struck me as "oh, I never thought of that."  I can forgive that since they had a really small window of time to design everything (odd for a script that's been around for ten years), but at the same time...  And also, the sets were big so there weren't that many of them, so this massive Titanic-in-space spaceship didn't really feel BIG to me.  Maybe I'm a tough audience for that kind of thing now.

Pratt and Lawrence were fine in the flick, but you put those two together, you expect at least the "cut loose and have fun" scenes would be off the wall, but they weren't.  It seemed like their personalities could have come out a bit more.

I kept thinking I liked the script better than the movie, even if I can't remember exactly what was different in the script.

And of course, I kept thinking of "Red Dwarf" the whole way through, what with the one lone man coming out of stasis on a massive starship in the middle of nowhere.  I was trying to think of other "episodes" that might come up after the ending of the movie.

Then I rewatched the old Ghost In The Shell movie from 1995, which I hadn't seen in a long time.  I got the Mondo steelbook with the awesome cover, but I hasn't **** into it before.  What's funny is that seeing it this time, the movie was far more straightforward than I remember.  Sometimes my mind wanders when I watch anime movies.

Now I'm finishing up A Hologram For The King.  Interesting.  Definitely something different than I'd seen before, so worth checking out.

I put in a hold request for Beauty and the Beast a while back and got the notice today that it was in. Turns out it was some bullsh*t direct-to-dvd version that was piggybacking off of the Emma Watson version....the one I wanted to see. I told them "thanks...but no thanks. No desire to watch some lame version. Keep it".

If it's the French one, that's on my list.  Curious to see that before the Disney version, which I am curious about.

And I totally forgot about The Good Place being on Netflix, starting it now.  Always good to see Chip's wife on telly.
