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

Glengarry Glen Ross trailer done in the style of Wolf of Wall Street

If you want to feel that some good came of the global pandemic and shutdown, I highly recommend watching this:

Narrated by David Attenborough, never-before-seen footage shows how our living in lockdown opened the door for nature to bounce back and thrive. Acros…

If that link doesn't work eventually, it's "The Year Earth Changed" on Apple TV+.

Nobody, birdie. The story is a bit thin, but the action was much better than I thought it would be. I still won't see Bob Odenkirk as an action figure, but… his stunt double did pretty good, I guess? 🙂

Mortal Kombat. Par. Don’t really know the game. Fun action. Meh storyline. Captain Obvious me. 
 

Stowaway. Bogey. Thinly written. Some interesting space scenes. Ending makes you go that’s it?

Cruella, easy birdie, and I'm trying really hard not to give it an eagle. I think I'll manage because I'm not sure it's super rewatchable, but it was very good as an origin story, very good even to me as a guy in a story about fashion and women, and… Emma Stone kicked butt, honestly. Such expressive eyes, and she controls them so well, and it's just so well acted by Emma Thompson as well.

73% critic, and 97% audience score at Rotten Tomatoes.

So yeah, a solid birdie.

So was the movie a par but Emma Stone the eagle, resulting in the birdie?  You can separate them...

No, you can't. Because you can't just watch Emma Stone or something. 🙂

One Night in Miami. Easy birdie. Great acting. It was originally a play.

Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It.

Bogey. I enjoyed the Conjuring series for the most part. But this one had the tired old theme of possession and demons. If I have to see another demon or possessed person with their joints going backwards I’m gonna lose it. Lol.

Went on a Christopher Reeve kick last week. He's an underrated actor, so much charisma. 

Somewhere in Time - IDK if it's a birdie or an eagle, but it's magnificent. my wife said she didn't like the ending, but she's still been talking about it days later so it must be great. 

Deathtrap - easy birdie. Reeve more than holds his own against Michael Caine. Marvelous.

Marauders, bogey. The military tie-in stuff was weak, which made the whole story line weak.

The American, par. I almost gave this a bogey, too. Normally assassin movies rate highly for me, but this one, meh. He was a gunsmith and an assassin? I don't know. Did he die at the end? He knew he was injured. Mortally so? Whatever. This isn't Butch Cassidy.

Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.

Gringo, with Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried and a bunch of nobodies. Bogey. It was an okay use of time, with some "capers" and "escapades" and the ending was perfectly satisfying, but… meh. It was just fine.

The Double, a 2011 Richard Gere/Topher Grace film about a Russian assassin.

Par. Better than I expected.

The Usual Suspects, with my wife. Birdie. Almost an eagle, but it doesn't entirely hold up if you know the ending. There aren't that many little clues planted throughout, unlike some films of this type.

And yes, I've been watching a lot of movies lately for some reason.

I don't know why, but I just enjoy watching this movie. I've probably seen it like a dozen times now. Maybe I don't over analyze it, and more so just enjoy the characters just getting fooled. Like, I don't nit pick movies much anyways, or if I know the surprise ending then I don't really care if some earlier plot stuff doesn't hold up as well.

    • Welcome to TST, I've had similar issues but only with Driver versus FW Woods. IMO, it might be due to weighting differences of the clubs or shaft flex. Also, I sometimes make a poor swing on irons which may stem from transitions between long and short length clubs mostly with unusual lie or stance. Maybe a change in pre-shot routine of the irons would be beneficial. For longer clubs, I will make a sweeping practice swing. For mid to short irons I try to feel the club bounce and interact with the turf. I also try to concentrate on the swing path, making sure I finish high and at my target  with all clubs.
    • Looking more and more like it'll be early to mid-September according to the New York Times article. F.D.A. Aims to Give Final Approval to Pfizer Vaccine by Early Next Month - The New York Times The Food...  
    • I am having problems transitioning between hitting my Driver and Irons.  When I hit my driver (on the screws) I tend to top  or blade my irons.  When I hit my irons flush, I tend to have issues finding the tee ball with my driver.  Any ideas?
    • The FO video helps. If I were you, I would: Do a lot days 1-5 from https://golfevolution.com/30-day-plan/. Add an avatar. Post in some other topics and get to know some of the people here. Post regularly here showing yourself doing the drills in a few minutes a day at home.
    • Looks better, but think about more weight shift forward on the downswing from the top to about A6. In your chip/punch drills, your weight is shifting forward. Try to get that same feel from A4 to A6. I’ve been doing this drill below since I went to Erie. Take it to the top, stop, shift weight forward so the left hip is over the ankle and let arms fall to A6. Then relax a bit (relaxed muscles are fast muscles) and draw back. Punch forward and stop at A9. For me the focus is getting the left hip to snap back faster. For you, it would be first to get the weight forward feel going.
