Manchester by the Sea

Great film. It's somehow both funnier and sadder than I was expecting. I laughed a lot, cried a little, felt uncomfortable...it's an emotional rollercoaster, that's for sure. I'm glad I saw this first instead of La La Land.

Still a great time capsule on some of the greatest musical moments in Metro Goldwyn Mayer's history, from The Wizard of Oz to Gigi. I'll be watching Part II and Part III within the week, as well as That's Dancing.

EDIT 1/4/2017

That's Dancing

Told ya I would be watching this...

That's Entertainment! Part II

...and this one as well. Both are also great time capsules of great moments in musical and non-musical cinema.

You guys are right, this was awesome! I wish they tone down the shakiness though.

Although I didn't really like the blood effects and the best bits didn't really last long, it was still worth a watch.

Moana was pretty good. Lots of good songs, amazing animation (3D and 2D!). I only had a couple minor grievances with the movie.

I also got to see Princess Mononoke (well, the last half of it. picking up my friend and driving through highway traffic jams took up more time than I thought it would) in a theater last night. It was subtitled, which I wasn't expecting, but also wasn't a big deal. Good movie and it was also great to see a Miyazaki film in theaters, up on a big screen with surround sound, all that good stuff.

I saw some definitely good new movies last year, including Zootopia, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Arrival, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and tbh I found Suicide Squad pretty entertaining too.

Most of these I happened to see with people; Kubo and the Two Strings was one of my most anticipated movies of the year but I couldn't find anyone who wanted to see it with me so it got away from me, and it's becoming the same with Moana though there's still a chance.  I want to see the anime movie your name. [sic] but little to no way that's happening where I live.  And on what kingplatypus said the Princess Mononoke showings are happening where I live, I had work last night but there's a showing of the dub on Monday night which there's a chance I have off, so that'd be nice.

That's Entertainment! III

This one is more technical and informative about the making of the MGM musical than the other two, and was released 18 years after the second one. It even shows deleted footage from certain films, including Judy Garland's bits for Annie Get Your Gun (1950) before she was replaced with Betty Hutton after a breakdown. Nevertheless, the film serves as a long-awaited conclusion to a trilogy of movie time capsules.

...and with that, I'm all done with the That's ________! movies

Following (1998)

I sense the code of Inception here and there. Nevertheless, simply Christopher Nolan's truly underrated masterpiece.

Questions by the way (SPOILER)

Spoiler

Was Cobb really dead? If Cobb wasn't, then who's the one got hammered by Bill (D. Lloyd)? Where did he get those money from?

Manchester by the Sea

Went to the movie with an open mind as usual and, while there were a lot of funny scenes and some sad ones, although sappy, I don't know, maybe the whole depressing aspect of the film lead me with a bit of disappointment. I mean, the movie is great, don't get me wrong, they make use of the subject flawlessly and such, a million times better than Colateral Beauty I suppose, but probably I could've had a better time watching Bleed for This or Rogue One, which I didn't picked up due to lack of interest. But either way, if your heart can handle depressing, realistic stories, then go for it, it's worth a watch.

Spoiler

Casey Affleck's house burning down, though, that scene caught me off-guard.

Rogue One

Not as good as The Force Awakens, but it was still a fantastic film. Definitely the best Star Wars prequel ever existed, obviously.

Rambo First Blood

The only thing that marred the experience was that it was the edited-for-TV version. I didn't mind the censorship but I hated that they inserted commercial breaks in between lines of dialogue. Most networks at least have the decency to wait until a scene ends before cutting to commercial.

Princess Mononoke

It wasn't in one of the larger theaters, but it was nearly packed.  I'd say they don't make em like this anymore, but did anyone ever make anything quite like this?

Also they played a Ghibli short called On Your Mark right before the movie, it was very good, and a nice touch to add to the theatrical experience.  I'm really glad I went.

La La Land

Loved it. A movie like this could only have been made by someone who loves movies, jazz, Los Angeles...but it's plenty entertaining on its own, and it never feels too sentimental or like a retread of older films. I had a huge smile on my face for wide stretches. My favorite parts were the dance at the Griffith, and the final sequence; I really wasn't expecting that last one. My only real gripe is that Ryan Gosling's singing voice isn't too great, but the rest of the film is so good you forget about it. Nice job.

A South Korean, dark comedy/romance movie, I'm a Cyborg, But That's Okay. It gave me kinda mixed, but mostly good feelings.

Spoiler

On the one hand, I think it's obvious the writers know nothing about mentally ill people, because all the characters are just exaggerations for the sake of comedy (which I don't completely mind, but others might find it offensive or something) and one scene in particular made me wonder if I was supposed to laugh or just feel uncomfortable. On the other hand, it was pretty damn funny at times, and none of the character's illnesses were the butt of a joke. Everyone in the movie was pretty likable as well. I thought it was good overall, but it might not be to everyone's taste.

Rogue One

In spite of the mixed opinions I've been hearing about, I had a good time watching this flick. Admittedly I was more fond of the supporting characters in the grand scheme of things but ultimately I didn't feel that the story got too forced at times compared to, say, the prequels.

That being said, CG Tarkin did look quite ....uncanny.

I saw Hidden Figures on Monday. It's alway cool to learn how African Americans made their mark on American history and the three women who worked at NASA during the first shuttle launch are no exception. I was invested throughout the whole thing.
