We watched the first James Bond, "Dr. No" last night.   It is so amazing to see the difference between movies made back in the 60s compared to today's technology.   We are going to binge Bond movies for the next few weeks.  

For a movie of the 60 I give it a par, for today's rating it's a bogie. 

I read in Sean Connery’s obit that Dr No was a low budget film and they chose him because he wouldn’t cost too much.

Ready or Not, a movie where the bride has to hide from midnight until dawn without getting murdered by the rich husband’s family.

It’s well liked on Rotten Tomatoes.

I give it… a… birdie. You have to totally suspend disbelief, of course, but the ending made it worthwhile. It’s not a movie you can watch a second or third time, but I’m glad to have watched it once.

The Gentlemen

My wife really loved this movie, but it was a bit slow compared to other Guy Ritchie films.  The "gang" activity seemed kind of forced.  Scramble for par.

Richard Jewell, with Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, and Olivia Wilde.

Par.

It painted a pretty bad picture of Richard as far as his intellect. It glosses over a lot of things quickly, too, but at the end of the day it also paints a good picture of how his diligence saved lives.

Warner Bros is putting its 2021 theatrical slate on HBO Max for the films' first month of release, concurrent with a cinema release.

 

Whoa.

Wow. Makes me think of Moviepass, when it was easy to use, I watched more movies that I normally would have. There are a bunch in this list I'd never give a screening, now that it's on a service I'm already subscribed to, will probably do the same.

Bone Tomahawk - Easy Par, was a little slow at the beginning or would've been a birdie.  But when it gets to the action, it is a great blend of horror and a western.  Kurt Russel was excellent in this movie.  Very enjoyable, wish I would've watched it earlier, not sure how I missed it.

The Burrowers  -Par - Another Western/Horror blend, enjoyable monster flick set in the west.

Being on a wester horror movie binge, another great is:

 Ravenous (1999) - Birdie - It is a highly entertaining movie that is part western, part cannibalism, part Indian lore, great atmospheric setting and lots of black comedy. Guy Pearce and Richard Carlyle are great in their roles.

   Ravenous is one of my favorites.  Thanks for the mention, it's time to dig the dvd out of the basement and give it a whirl again.

  I wasn't impressed with Bone Tomahawk, but I was shocked by that one scene.

We finally watched Saturday Night Fever (1977) after all these years. Only a Par. Music was excellent and acting was good but the story was kind of lame. All the characters were jerks. I’m half Italian and I can’t stand that kind of Italian American.

Tenet - bogey. I'd give Inception, Interstellar and Dunkirk all birdies or even better. While some of Tenet's set pieces were amazing, not quite enamored of the story although I got the gist of it. The soundtrack didn't resonate with me as well although I love Mando's score. I don't think it's a negative point that most will see one of the "twists" early in the movie, it's more seeing how it unfolds. Definitely not worth risking going to an actual theater to watch.

I watched three movies over the weekend, which might be more movies than I watched the rest of the year combined.

Jexi - birdie. Predictable romcom plot line but funny as hell.

Mulan (2020) - double bogey. This was bad. Disney is fortunate that COVID shut down theaters because this would have flopped. Fight scenes weren’t even good.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms - par. Cute little fantasy movie that’s set in a known world. Done before, though.

WW84.

Double bogey.  Plot was so-so, the story was bad and there was not much action.  If you saw all the trailers, pretty much that's all the action there is.

Mirrors my rating. So, I'll just quote that.

Miss Sloane, birdie. One of Jessica Chastain's best performances. I think I watched it awhile ago, 2016 or so, but I had forgotten enough it was worth a re-watch.

    • I do like that the crowd is doing “Whooooaaa!” during the practice swings on the first tee. It’s fun and lightens thing up. I don’t like cheering for missed putts and bad shots though.
    • I agree to an extent. The comment about a player being a loser isn’t a big deal. I am all for ribbing the Euros but be clever more than obscene. Kids are still there watching. 
    • Lighten up. This isn't a golf tournament it's a team event not unlike any other. If the cheering and rowdy behavior bothers you, turn it off and wait for the Masters.  Definitely not for the country club "Get off my lawn" crowd!
    • Yeah that’s not really how it works. You’re leaving out some important facts. New technology has allowed for improved distance and ball flight parameters. To get a 7i to still behave like a 7i, they have to adjust the lofts. It’s not simply reducing the loft to make someone think they’re hitting a 7i as far as a 6i.
