Jurassic World Dominion. Tap in par. If you like the other 5 specifically the last 2 you will like this one. New and old characters on screen together was fun.

Kimi.

Bogey may be even a lipped out double bogey.  Feels like one of those made for TV movie.  No suspense, slow moving in the beginning, etc.

Nope. In IMAX. Real, not LIEMAX. Barely a birdie. I appreciate what he’s trying to do, Peele, it’s not as focused as Get Out was but I generally like films that try for something but miss rather than play it safe.
 

The IMAX aspect ratio to me definitely added to the experience, noticed the IMAX camera usage immediately. Is it Top Gun 2 see it in IMAX no, more Lawrence of Arabia see it in IMAX.

It’s not straight up horror like his two previous movies but it doesn’t contain any less social commentary imho.

Knew that Steve Yeun was in this but also two surprise actors I know also showed up. One from The OA and another from Ocean’s Eleven.

Missed some dialog because of mumbling. So much mumbling these days. Will definitely rewatch for the closed captioning.

The Gray Man, par. It's got some good action sequences, though many are too dark/too fast to truly tell what's happening. Beyond that… same old story. Entertaining for an evening, but nothing more.

Ana de Armas needed a bigger part. 😉

Lightyear, tap in par. My 5 year old loved it. He also likes Buzz Lightyear more than Woody.

Bullet Train. Par but almost lipped out. It just was not as funny as I thought it would be. You could tell they threw some money into the movie not just the well known actors. Maybe I should just read the book. I think that would be a big improvement.

Prey - tap in birdie. A great addition to a certain franchise. If you don’t know anything about it don’t watch the trailer, just go into it knowing it’s an action flick. Too bad this didn’t get a theatrical release I would have certainly gone to a theater to see this.

I agree, I give it a birdie. I really enjoyed  this predator movie.

The Gray Man, tap in Par. A bit to frantically paced during the middle. I question some plot timing issues. The dry humor is good, and the action sequences are pretty good.

Echo for what @nevets88said.  I knew almost nothing about the movie other than the ethnicity of the main cast and that it's an action movie.  I had time tonight so I watched a movie and chose this one.   Otherwise same review.  Birdie.

Everything Everywhere All at Once was bonkers crazy, it was a little too much at times, but totally worth a theater visit. Birdie.

Had nobody else seen this?? What an incredible movie. Not a moment of it wasn't captivating or enthralling

I tweeted at the directors and they tweeted back! I noticed something about a musical bit and they said yep. We did that just for people like you who will would notice such details.

What Happened, Brittany Murphy?

Triple bogey. It's not really a movie, but I agree with what's written on Wikipedia:

Quote

In October 2021, HBO Max aired a documentary titled What Happened, Brittany Murphy?, covering the mystery surrounding Murphy's death. In the documentary, Murphy's 8 Mile co-star Taryn Manning remembered her as "free-spirited, whimsical and full of laughter".[55] After the documentary premiere, Daniel Fienberg wrote for The Hollywood Reporter that the documentary was "20 percent a reminder of Murphy's transcendent talent, 30 percent a dead-ended investigation into the mystery of her death, and 50 percent an unenlightening examination of Murphy's late husband", and concluded his review saying that "[Murphy] deserved better than the treatment she received in the media, which probably contributed to [Monjack's] ability to control her in the way he did."[56]

    • I’ll recount this round more specifically, then answer your question.  1) hit normal, first tee shot, duck hookish drive left of fw. Hit a low, below the trees, 95yd 52 wedge to inside 10ft. Missed the putt.  2) cut drive, still missed ever so slightly left of fw. Put approach to 3ft, made birdie.  3) 2iron to mid fairway, had 130 in and hit pw barely over the green (within 20ft of pin). Hit a putt from the rough as it was straight downhill, made par.  4) par 3, hit front edge of green after a high toe chunk of a tee shot. Couldn’t get up and down. 5) par 5, perfect drive, left with 200 or so in. Missed green to the right but pin high, chipped to a tap in.  6) par 3 missed green short right, chip hit the pin and stopped close.  7) par 5, good drive, had 5iron in, missed slightly right but carried the bunker. 2 putt birdie 8- Good drive, missed fairway, but it’s a short hole and ended short right of green. 65yd pitch to inside 10ft. made the putt.  9) pounded the drive, approach from 45yds ended up inches from the hole. Birdie 10) missed drive right into the trees, punched out, had 105yds in and put my 56 to 4ft and made par. Key par there.  11) par 5, drive missed right of fw but still fine, hit 4iron to inside 20ft, 2 putt birdie.  12) par 3, thought i hit it perfect, bit landed mid green and spun to front. Had a tough uphill putt from 40ft or so. Made par.  13) par 5, good drive but slightly left of fw, hit 2iron to pin high right of green. Chip to 5ft, made the slider for birdie.  14) 315yd par 4, drove green (must have had a lucky kick, I’ve been plugging in front approach all winter), ended within 15ft and made the putt for eagle. 15) cut 2iron down left side fw, tucked right pin so did my normal draw off it to middle of green. Had 25-30ft, made par.  16) par 3, 150yds, tucked right pin again, hit 15-20ft away, made par.  17) hit hooky 2iron, but ok in left rough, had 100yds in slightly downwind, hit my 60 8ft past, made birdie.  18) hit 2iron hard down right but hit trees and kicked, luckily, slightly left back into fairway, had 130yds in and had my 52 to 4ft, made birdie.  That is 7/14 fairways and 14/18 greens. Basically the driver was hit well, and for the most part, not in trouble and leaving short wedges in. From there I hit wedges really well, including many of the chip/pitch distances. When my game is around even par, there’s definitely no putts made and approaches aren’t as close. Mid to upper 60s means better approaches and some putts. Low 60s is good approaches with more putts made. Certainly making birdies on the 4 par 5s is important as well as making virtually no bogies.  I’ve said it before about my game but when my driver is doing good, I’m doing good. If it’s not, I’m not. My full/partial wedges are the best part of my game. Pitching/chipping is getting a ton better. Putting is a lot better but variable depending on conditions. The game just happens to be aligning more the last few months. 
    • Day 50 - Used MirrorVision to watch/film swings, focusing on my impact position.
    • 62 is cool as hell. Damn
    • Great playing! Curious when you say "good approaches" on like 1,2,17,18 that resulted in 3 birdies, what kinds of distances are you hitting for the approach shots and how far are you leaving for your birdie putts?  Maybe a better way to ask is during this great run of golf you've been playing obviously you've been doing a lot of things well, but is there a common theme among the really low rounds that you hadn't had prior to this stretch? Like has it been a case of stuffing everything to 5 feet, making a ton of long putts, not missing a fairway, etc.
