Rosaline on Hulu, par. It's what I expected. It was funny in parts, particularly to watch someone behave like it's 2022 or so while still being set in the 1500s or whatever. Just with the language, etc. Set against the Romeo and Juliet story, this is the story of Rosaline. Kinda like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, it's a full movie to a very supporting character(s).

Just read there are going to be making a sequel to Twister, and call it Twisters...

twister.jpg?w=1000&h=562&crop=1

"Twisters" will be released in theaters in the summer of 2024.

Twister, gets a tap in birdie for me. Somehow in the mid 90's made the tornados seem super intimidating. 

I am split on this because it just shows me that Hollywood has lost all ability to come up with new ideas. Yet, I kind of want to see what a movie about tornados will look like with current CG. I hope they do not make them look unrealistic (supercharging them). Think the movie, The Day After Tomorrow (gets a bogey 😛) where the weather affects kind of seem to ridiculous for how serious the movie took itself. They need the CG to make these tornados look as realistic and frightening as possible. I think in real life they are pretty terrifying. 

Also, the title is Twisers. Like, the first movie had multiple twisters in it and it was just called Twister. How is Twisters a good name for the movie. I think Twister 2 would be much better. Maybe Twister 2, with some subtitle of some sort. That is fine. Twisters is just meh.

I think you wanted it to be called "Twister with a twist". Ah!

Is this a par, birdie or eagle? 😉

I would definitely recommend watching it. You won't regret it except for Aubrey's pitiful attempt at Spanish in one scene

I don't particularly care for the rating system that's used here

No, you'd rather go with a horrendously fine-grained decimal system. Ha ha. 😄

2. Close Encounters of the Third Kind

3. Shawshank Redemption

4. Double Indemnity

Bullet Train… I mean… is it "good"? No. But is it a super gory fight from the start to the end, with lots of action and good sequences and gore and blood and guts? Yeah.

It's kinda good in that sense.

I give it… a par. Because it's not good, but it is.

Enola Holmes 2 - Par. It was enjoyable. We liked the first one as well.

Avatar (the original one), par. It was better than I thought (I'm not a big fan of super-CG movies, Sci-Fi type movies, etc.). I knew the whole story about how the humans were the invading species and the Na'vi were like the Native Americans in a lot of ways, and while that story was better than I thought… it was 2:30 (the new one is 3:00?!)… but the CG and whatnot just wasn't at quite a high enough level to where it didn't just look slightly "weird" the whole time. I understand that facial expressions matter, but I almost think they should have gone away from human looking faces because the expressions were so awkward.

I got this when I watched a blue ray version of the movie years ago. It just looked bad on my TV. I never got that feeling watching it in the theater. Though I only saw it in 3D, maybe that helped with how they filmed it.

Watched a couple in last two weeks:

Shawshank Redemption..  Eagle on a re-watch (has been almost 20 years so didn't remember a lot..). It's been a while since I have felt a bit lumpy in the throat at the end of a movie. Oh, the humanity..

Wind River.. Eagle. Everything is a bit sharper against the brutish beauty of a Wyoming winter. The drama itself is edgy all the way to an awesome ending.

Wind River is a movie I could watch over and over.  The storyline and the brutality of the Wyoming winters and landscape.  We have a house south of Jackson, WY and the views in that movie always take me back when we are sitting in Nevada.

Definitely an eagle in my book.

    • Down a couple of more lbs. to 256 this morning. If only golf progressed like this lol. 
    • You probably mis-hit driver more often, too. You can hover a driver… less than two feet from the ball.
    • Day 484, February 26, 2024 90 minutes with @DrizZzY this morning. Getting near the end of the slow downswing work. Going to start adding speed to it in March.

    • I was going to mention this. His youtube videos he's always talking about his putt distances. He's got all the way up to 100+ feet calibrated. But then he does all sorts of calculations on the fly, so he says things like "it's 41 feet, but it's 2% uphill, so that's playing 74 feet. 74 feet is hands to right hip pocket" and off he goes. I'm making up the 74 feet and the right hip pocket bits - I don't know exactly how those pan out and the article doesn't seem to expand on that.  I'm also in a similar position to OP - I want to work on my distance control, but it's hard to get to a spot where I can hit putts longer than about 10 feet at the moment (winter). I'm thinking about getting an Exputt, but I don't really see how that's going to help all that much if I don't subsequently start pacing off my putts and I'm not sure I want to do that. It seems over the top. I guess it would help me to learn to control speed and then that would hopefully translate to on the course, but it's expensive to test that.
