    Too bad Gary Oldman didnít play a larger role he was great as usual. And Alan Rickman? I love Snape!

    Maybe I need to read the books, as a newby I thought there was a helll of a lot of unexplained or underexplained characters. I mean, maybe I missed it but just what was Tom Riddleís motivation? That character made prequel Anakin look good and donít get me started on that one!!!!

    Sounds like FB 1 was good but the new one is meh?
    3 is both the best movie by far and best book. 6 is 2nd best of both, though much closer in the books. 2 is the weakest of both.

The tone changes because as you go further and further along it becomes more and more clear that either Harry or Voldemort has to die.
    The tone changes because she tried to write them to the age of the characters. Book 1 is written for someone 6 years younger than book 7.

    That too. My point was the themes were always there.

    I saw The Frontrunner. Very well made film.

    Went and saw Ralph Breaks the Internet.

    It can be summed up as Disney making fun of itself for two hours. I thought it was good and funny but I could see how some wonít like it.

    What fool saw last years King Arthur movie bomb and thought it was a good idea to give someone money to make a Robin Hood movie just like it?

    Man Of Tai Chi:
    A young martial artist's unparalleled Tai Chi skills land him in a highly lucrative underworld fight club. Keanu's debut as a director, and he's a main character in it. Nice little kung-fu movie, sort of an "Enter The Dragon" plot that's been modernized. Good action scenes, with some serious nods to kung-fu predecessors. If you like this sort of movie, I'd take a watch.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs

    A few short stories set in the Wild West, by the Coens. None are connected. The stories ranged from the absurd to the serious/dark, to a mix of both. Loved it. Thought the final story's dialogue had touches of Tarantino, in the style. Definitely recommend.

    The Crew:

    French movie, standard heist flick. Meh. I really don't have to say any more than that.

    Anyone seen the trailer for "Welcome to Marwen"? Quite an interesting story. I'm intrigued.

    I want to see it. Steve Carrell seems made for this role; his first love is drama, but it offers plenty of comedic opportunities, too.

    Crazy Rich Asians:

    A little soft in the middle, almost a Lifetime type movie, but the beginning and ending made up for it, given the culture it is covering. I liked it quite a bit, definitely worth a watch.

    And the Mah Jongg scene! BEAUTY! I was talking to myself calling out the tiles/etc during that scene.

    Green Room:

    On the last stop of their low-budget tour, a punk band finds that they are playing for some hard-core Neo-Nazis. Things take a twisted turn, as you might expect.
    It was okay. Checked it out only because Patrick Stewart is in it. It was worth 90 minutes of my time.

    The Kindergarten Teacher:

    A teacher thinks one of her students is a prodigy, and tries to make sure he succeeds, even if it means crossing some lines.

    YAWN. Predictable, boring, not even sure if it's LifetimeChannel level of a movie. Don't bother.

    I could have warned you on that one. I like Maggie Gyllenhaal which is the reason I watched it. I agree with your assessment.
