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.

    • Which is why @iacas and TST instructors in general recommend priority pieces. This could really screw someone up who’s hip rotation wasn’t a priority piece or who’s hand/wrists movements were. I vote D-. Not an F purely because of his enthusiasm…lol.
    • For the record and for what it’s worth, I’m not a Xander fan. I just think he’s pretty good. 
    • Maybe. Maybe not. That’s why I said it “could be.” Statistically things aren’t in his favor because, as you mentioned, the field is pretty good. But he’s also pretty good—one of the best statistically-speaking. Sometimes just a little bit of success can spur one on to do more. He looks like he has the talent, so I guess we will just have to wait and see.  Curious: is there something in his game or swing you see that you don’t like? You’d know better than I, for sure. To me, he looks very solid. I didn’t know if maybe you saw something he needs to fix, just based it purely on the numbers, or the fact that you don’t like him and that your dislike of him could have tainted your view of him (even if deserved!). 
    • And I'd wager that within a reasonable version of "launching pad" it won't be. He won a weak, limited-field event. I'm sure it feels great - it's one event every FOUR years instead of majors which are four events every year (usually). But it's not even as good as winning a WGC event or the Masters or something (also limited field events) as an actual achievement. I'd be willing to wager that simply because: There are a lot of other good golfers out there. He hasn't done it yet, and for "this" to be the catalyst, he'd have to do it within the next year or so for this to be the "launching pad." Who cares if he, like Sergio, wins a major 15 years later? The 1999 PGA was not the launching pad for Sergio's Masters win. Nor were any of the Ryder Cups in which he played so well, etc.
    • Make some swings in a mirror and try different things. See what your feels produce. I don't really know what you mean by "using your knees" in this way, and quite honestly, I don't think you do either… not because you don't think you know, but because you're probably not doing what it feels like you're doing. Move the hips properly, and see what the other body parts do. Do it in a mirror so the feedback is immediate.
