Ford   Vs  Ferrari.  Birdie.  I don’t find racing that interesting, but every once in a while one of these movies comes along that I’m totally entertained with.

Agreed!

We are starting to watch the last few James Bond movies in prep for the new one that comes out in November (I know...).   

We've watched Casino Royale which is my favorite Dan Craig Bond movie (tap in birdie),  Quantum of Solace (6' birdie putt) and Skyfall (par).

Greyhound.  Lip out eagle.  Great movie as most Tom Hanks movies seem to be.

Athlete A, a documentary about Larry Nassar.

The whole time I was ill, so I have a hard time really accurately rating this movie. I want to give it a quintuple bogey, because I can't separate the subject from how well it was covered. I also want to give it an albatross, for the bravery (and it's sad that it requires bravery) of the women who came forth and told their story.

So I'm just going to say I played it, and I recommend others watch it as well.

Hamilton - I don’t give out eagles often but this was terrific. I’m not much of a rap fan, but this was perfectly blended with rap and phenomenal singing. All the actors were excellent. There was humor and drama. Really excellent musical.

Greyhound - par. I was interested in the cat and mouse bit between destroyers and subs, but that part was a bit muddled, not exactly sure what was going on during some moments. And why they maintained radio silence and only to break it soon after. I suspect if I played one of those online multiplayer war video games, I would have learned a lot more.

   I found Greyhound to be a bit of a mixed bag.  I really enjoyed the tension during the battle scenes, but the more quiet moments felt like big parts were missing from them or left on the editing room floor.  To me, they seemed slightly incomplete.

 

  Also, RIP to one of my childhood crushes Kelly Preston.  Gorgeous lady, and I wish she would have made more movies over her career.

I rewatched bits of Greyhound, looked up all the navigation and naval terms I did not know and learned a lot, radio communication, navigation, naval warfare, the German navy and the US navy, encryption, and read up a little about today's subs. Between this movie and Midway, got a bit of a history lesson. I still have no idea whether when they shoot torpedos out of a sub, whether there is a wire connected to it for communications purposes though.

Double eagle. I had problems with Bales character at first but then watched a documentary and realized the manners was actually quite spot on.
Racing scenes as usual didn´t look all that great from a simracers perspective. 

Last movie seen was midsommar. Swedish horror movie. Weird enough to work quite well. Par on a demanding par 4!

I don't think so.

Netflix's The Old Guard - par. John Wick action but with old souls and contemplation on existentialism.

I must say, I wasn't sure if this would be any good.  But it turned out to be a great movie.

Definitely a tap in birdie.

Watched almost all of the Studio Ghibli movies since they’re now on HBO Max, like 15 of them. Favorites are My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, all eagles. Have watched these many times before but some of them only the dubbed version was available to me and it’s nice HBO made available both subtitled and dubbed versions for the whole collection.

King Arthur (2004, Clive Owen), par. A very "different" King Arthur story, completely fake or something, but supposedly also somewhat realistic. The story was fairly simple, but the fight scenes were good.

Happy Gilmore. Double bogey not better then I remembered. I watched some Sandler movies I enjoyed. But in a way it foresee which direction professional golf has headed 🙂 Would that hockey putter be deemed legal if it had a straight blade?

Do I now dare to rewatch Tin Cup again? It would be quite fresh don´t remember a lot about it.
