Clockwork Orange was one of the worst movies I’ve ever sat through.

For me, that is What Dreams May Come.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), par. Not at all what I thought it was going to be, but in some ways better. In other ways… weirder. 🙂

Up in the Air (2009), with George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, and Anna Kendrick.

I give it a par. I'd seen it before, but I didn't remember much. Maybe I watched it falling asleep one time or something. Good acting, low-key solid story. Interesting if unusual main guy (Ryan Bingham).

Revolutionary Road, bogey.

I can't blame the acting. DiCaprio may be the best of his time. And I "get" what the idea was here, I think: to show a semi-ordinary life. But that's the thing - an ordinary life is boring, and I was bored by this movie. So much so that I turned it off 2/3 of the way through and read the rest of what happened on Wikipedia.

Oh hell I just saw this! This is such a creative piece. Awesome!

Yeah, but Captain America ATE A BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, I liked the movie a lot. 

I don't think it's quite the social commentary that people make it out to be.

It was also super freaking depressing.

I love Anna Kendrick, saying, I type with purpose, lol.

ZS Justice League. If you have 4 hours, HBO Max and like comic book movies this will be a 20 foot birdie. I enjoyed what was presented. Far superior than the one released a few years ago.

  I had to split it up into two segments, but yeah, despite Snyders tendency for slo-mo I thought this was much better than the other version.  Cyborg probably gained the most from this cut. 

 

   Had a chance to watch Sunshine again for the first time in a long while.  Easy par from me.

The Courier, posted by Erik looks amazing.  I'm ready to watch it. 

ZS Justice League was significantly better than the other.

The 13th Warrior .  Birdie.  I haven't seen this one in a while.  It's a very solid flick for me.  It's just somewhat lacking in a certain something to make it a classic.  It's up there with Desperado as one of my favorite Antonio Banderas movies.  Plus, who doesn't love Vikings with English and Irish accents?

Hoop Dreams - possibly the best sports documentary ever - and without question one of the greatest documentaries of all time. Albatross

The Staircase - expect to binge watch all 8 hours or whatever it is without leaving your seat. Incredible. Eagle

    • I'm not giving up the fight. We can change it back.
    • Yes, I do. But linguists are already telling us that the meaning has changed, and that we old codgers need to just accept it, because "very" and "really" went through this same change years ago--and now it's litterally's turn.  The definition now includes "used for emphasis or to express strong feeling while not being literally true."
    • It’s been 3 years since I posted a swing video but this offseason I am planning on doing a lot of work on my swing (I’ll be taking lessons every 3 weeks for 4-5 months). I just had my first lesson and we are working on shallowing out my swing, neutralizing my grip and getting me to stand closer to the ball. The first video linked here is my swing at the beginning of the season (showcasing my steep over the top move) and the second video is my swing today 10/21 about two weeks after my first lesson. I am currently a 15 handicap. I shot 12 over twice this year and one time shot 9 over. 8 iron in both videos.  
    • When I watch FO swings on my V1 app from various pros, they all seem to be similar those positions regarding club face. I don’t know if doing anything with this is beneficial but rather correcting body movements to create this ?    I believe it’s something that’s supposed to happen but many amateurs try to force it. Usually it’s another mechanic that’s faulty but they try to manipulate the forearms/wrists to release. Don’t know numbers but videos I just watched all have very close to 60*/120* to me.
    • I’m really curious to see vaccination rates in that young demographic and how that plays out since the risks are so low.  
  • Today's Birthdays
