Even though the market is seeming to get a little saturated with Superhero films, I have nothing bad to say about Captain America: The Winter Soldier. I give it an eagle. Despite a few weak spots, it's a well told spy thriller set with superheroes. Also, I'd say the action scenes and cinematography is about the best I've seen so far from the genre. I thought it was very well done.

The Grandmaster Saw this earlier in the year, but it's available on iTunes now and will watch it again tonight. This movie defies categorization. It looks like an action movie, but it's more an

Funny.  I wanted to come on here and rate that one an eagle as well, then decided that maybe I was being too easy.  I loved it!

Also, it ties in beautifully to the Agents of Shield Tv show.  I'm really glad I stuck with that one through the mediocre beginning because I'm really enjoying it right now.

I had the same feeling. A birdie wouldn't quite be doing it justice. And as much as Cap can be somewhat of a corny character to write dialogue for, I really enjoyed how he reacted to the drama going on around him. I loved the elevator scene.

I recently did a watch of almost all the films of Hayao Miyazaki, and I'm completely awestruck and I don't read manga or watch anime. Great storytelling and imagination.

Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle are my two favorite, just brilliant works of art.

I'm a complete movie junkie, but somehow never saw Fight Club until last night. Wow.  That movie is going to take awhile to digest.

Fight Club is one of the few movies I saw more than once in the theatre. Loved it. I'm halfway through the second Hobbit movie. I'm not really enjoying it so far.

Just realized the rating scale.  I would seriously give Fight Club an Eagle.  Great film.  I need to watch it again.

The Station Agent. Birdie. A great pov look into how people treat you when you're different and dealing with it. Whimsical too. Peter Dinklage speaking in his normal voice (no British accent.)

Saw that years ago. Definite birdie. Great movie.

    • Yes, that’s my “former” swing. I felt way too close to the ball with the new swing, and was coming drastically out-to-in. (For what it’s worth, my previous instructor built my “former” swing on a template of Rahm and JT.)
    • That's… very close to the ball. Like Tiger level close, Finau level close. In the bottom photo, I like the swing on the left more. Is that the "former" swing?
    • Reverse Texas scramble... hell.  Golf messes up your head.
    • It means that you play too many reverse Texas scrambles and they are messing up your head. 
    • I followed your advice, @iacas, and took a lesson with a different instructor. He pointed out how much steeper my downswing was than my backswing, and how much lateral motion I exhibited. He attributed this to an overextended back that twisted, rather than turned, through the swing. This all made sense to me, but I am skeptical of his proposed solution: to keep my body weight over my legs by standing closer to the ball, arching my thoracic spine (instead of maintaining a flat spine as I had been previously taught), and having what feels like an extremely flat swing plane. I did nothing but top and hook the ball when I tried to follow his instruction. He did send me home with two annotated videos summarizing our lesson, which was an excellent touch I think all instructors should adopt. I’ve attached two stills from these movies comparing my current swing (left) and my attempt to implement the lesson (right) at P4. I went back to the range this morning with the intent of working on this new technique, but upon reviewing the video I am still swinging my old swing with a few small modifications inspired by the lesson—my swing plane is slightly flatter, and I’m standing closer to the ball with a natural spine curve. Unfortunately I’m still coming OTT and sending the ball 20 yards left or right of my target. Here’s a video of one of my best swings, in which the steep attack is still evident:
