About Time, which I've seen a few times… honestly, it's an eagle for me. I think it's a great story, and I love how "time travel" is not even really the point. The performances are great, the theme is great. It's a feel good movie with great characters and a great message. It makes you want to live a better life, and see the world a bit differently.

We don't get to go back in time to erase mistakes and do things differently. We have one chance at things. So don't screw them up. Appreciate them the first time around.

Eagle. Comedy, drama all well represented. Great story and really enjoyed all the golf scenes of how it used to be. Amazing how they played back in those days. Makes me want to get a set of hickories.

Rewatched The Matrix (eagle) in the theater with Dolby Cinema. I watched the Blu-ray earlier in the year and still noticed new details that stood out, the dialogue, the background, facets of people's faces, etc... I don't get the big deal about Dolby Cinema, everything's a little better, the picture, the sound, but still not exactly blown away by it.

Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil, two-putt par. It was… a good idea. It felt like it was pretty badly produced. Low tech, low budget. Funny in parts, but… meh. Just okay. I mean, who jumps at a wood chipper?

Zombieland, same score. Also funny in parts, but… I just don't care about zombie movies, and it felt… just… silly? Stupid? Something. Plus, if I we're them, I wouldn't waste ammunition like they did. I'm pretty sure I could find Twinkies. And why wouldn't you just run over zombies in your car?

85% and 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, so, I'm fine being in the minority on each of these.

Rocketman - Birdie. Very different from Bohemian Rhapsody in that it is really a musical. Acting was excellent and it did a good job with Elton's story. Really enjoyed it.

Angel Has Fallen- Gerard Butler looks rugged and tough in all action films, so he appears more believable. In this one, you see he has visibly aged and has suffered for all the physical violence he has been through. But he is able to rise for one more romp to save a President and expose the bad guys in kick ass fashion. This one is probably the last but I enjoyed it as much as the first two. Without spoiling it for any of you, it has some humor injected in it too by a long term aged actor. The reason the franchise has been popular though is Butler. He like Neeson, Stateham, and Stallone look the part so well. The physicality and presence they show in their films make them more watchable. I give this a big birdie.

Shot Caller - Stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (of GOT Jaime Lannister fame) as Jacob/Money who is a former stock broker who ends up doing hard time for DUI manslaughter when he kills his best friend in a car crash.  This is a gritty thriller that nicely captures all of the reasons that I would never make it in prison - on his first night in prison he sees another new guy get gang raped and decides he'll do whatever it takes to stay alive.  And he does.  Really well done movie that flashes between the past, present and future in a way that really helps tell the story.  My wife and I both got a bit lost around the climax of the film, but the director nicely pulled it all back together in time for a pretty spectacular ending that you don't see coming.  Coster-Waldau is excellent in this movie, as is Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice).  Jon Bernthal (TWD/ The Accountant) plays the same weak person character he always does - not a fan, but he doesn't distract from the story.  If not for the jumbled climax this would have been an Eagle, but I still give it a solid birdie.  I think we watched it off of Prime.

I finally got to see Parasite. Eagle. I see now why it won in Cannes. It defies categorization, it's just great storytelling and multilayered. I saw the subtitled version.

    • I agree, I can feel it too.  But you get used to it pretty quickly and then you don’t even think of it.
    • What loft was he using on those heads?  The Flash is a low spin head, I forget what the TS2 is.  With an 85 mph clubhead speed I’d be as concerned about the head as I am the shaft.  The Flash also has the weights, how are those set up? FWIW my son is also small... older than your son but he is 5’even and 80lbs.  He hits a Ping G SFT 12 degree with a senior shaft.  Hits it about 225 yards with a tight little draw.  He has always had a draw anyway.    I didn’t mind getting him the SFT because he plays it at full length and the SFT feature would enable him hitting a draw with a shaft that’s too long so he would get some distance.
    • So I haven't been pleased with my putting lately.  It just seems like I have been fighting it on the backswing, and that is throwing me off. So I thought I would pull out a bunch of putters. like many people have and weigh them and see what the balance turned out to be.  This is not scientific since I am using a Taylormade Monza IB Spider as the baseline weight and using a digital scale.  I realize this only gives me overall static weight of the putter and not the head weight.  I'm just guessing at that since they all have small pistol grips.  The IB weighed 537gr and has a spec of 350gr headweight.  It has a slight toe balance. 1930's Burke 15oz, 90* toe balance (Found in my parent's garage as a kid and actually used it a long time ago because I thought it was cool). 1985 Taylormade TPA V 488gr 17-1/4oz, guess 300gr HW slight toe (First real putter that I used for a long time... Nevada Bob's). 1990's Teradrops TD-xx 504/508 17-3/4oz, guess 315/320gr HW slight toe (Drank the roll face kool-aid a few years ago, they do roll nice). 2008 Adams Mallet 523gr 18-1/2oz, guess 335gr HW face balance (Got this after wife took my IB, I loved this putter before Jim Jones got a hold of me... back in the bag). I have others, the 80's are around the same weight (slight toe, except one that is about 80*) and I have a Teardrop RFD that is "toe up" by 30* and is almost 19-1/2oz-360gr HW.  It is super stable... but boy I hate that one. I realize that my list is really low budget and most people wouldn't be caught dead with any of them.  But this was kind of an exercise in looking back at the years and also have some baseline for me.  I don't buy a lot, but I realize that I've picked up too much of the same that isn't working, at least for my current setup. John
    • I get it.  But the bottom line is, that just because it’s on the cart path, the actual procedure doesn’t change at all from any other drop.  That’s why you’re not finding anything.  There’s no difference in the procedure at all.
