    It was fantastic. I thought 3 was a great ending but this was a worthy successor. And when the movie faded to black I thought this was a good finale, but between the end of the movie and when the credits roll there are a few clips and damm if I'm not interested in that for Toy Story 5. No idea if that's the plan but if they do it right I'm down for it. Or it can just be a few gags. Either way.

    And yes, this movie pulls on the heartstrings a few times. Nothing as devastating as the opening montage of Up or Bing Bong fading away, but there are moments. It's what Pixar does.

    Heard how bad it was, had to see it for myself. I don't know....I mean....what the....wow. It's not Road House bad. It's Manos: Hands Of Fate bad. But I couldn't stop watching, and oddly enough, I'm glad to have seen the whole putrid thing. It's a weird feeling.

    I never understood why Meyer's work gets the appreciation it does. It all seems like the same trash gag to me. It's not funny like Waters, not charming like Wood, it's just gross. I really want to like Meyer -- he gave the world a middle finger and not in a cutesy way but a malevolent "no dude I'm not kidding" way and I am constitutionally primed to respect that -- but everything I've seen of his has been boring and a mess and just not worth watching.

    From what I understand about him he'd say, "yeah... but you bought it!" Which... fair enough.

    Until watching that and then some Googling, I never realized Westinghouse was also involved, and used Tesla's inventions. I had always heard it as Edison vs Tesla, but Jesus was it messier than that.

    Tesla probably wasn't the saint we were all told he was, but you know the rules. "When the legend becomes truth..."

    He was electromagnetic, completely kinetic,
    "New Wizard of the West"
    But they swindled and whined that he wasn't our kind,
    And said Edison knew best


    Tesla was smarter than Edison, but you have to admit his renaissance has been a bit hagiographic.

    Yes, and JPMorgan funded Tesla until he ran out of patience. Hey bud! Free electricity is going to take a long time to perfect. Especially when your lab burns to the ground and you lose so much of what youíre worked on!

    I know Tesla has had a Renaissance in media and has become cult like but he died penniless and I donít Recall his name being brought up for more than 2 seconds in school. Iím ride or die on the Tesla train😀

    The History Channel dove into that in "Men Who Built America". Twas fascinating.

    That series was a laughable hagiography of the entrepreneur myth. It's as if the Kos brothers wrote it.

    Too bad, too, because the graphical art was wonderful.

    I can't remember what I watched on the rivalry, but Tesla was all imagination and could relay it verbally, but money ran out. Edison displayed what he could do, on paper, and prove it. Two different methods of developing something.

    Us:

    Every try and fit 30 lbs of sh* into a 10 lb bag? That's this movie. Now, I'll be fair, it was 10 lbs of good stuff with 20 lbs of sh*, same concept, though. Tried to do too much with this movie in the matter of actual story and themes. Went 3-4 different ways, depending what part of the movie you were watching (I can't even limit it to acts; it got as far as singular scenes).

    I cannot say I hated it, as I enjoyed the premise and the idea of the underlying themes...it was just too much to try and fit into one movie and it failed.

    My wife and saw Yesterday, well, yesterday. If you're a Beatles fan, you're likely to enjoy it. If you're not a fan, but like their most popular music, you might enjoy it. Kepler will hate it.

    There are a number of covers done, at least in part, throughout the movie. I enjoyed their take on Please, Help Me! as it fit the context of the story greatly in how they arranged it.

    In short, there's a global event where all power goes out for all devices, regardless of being battery operated or plugged into the wall. Power comes back a few seconds later, but a few things are different. Specific to the main storyline, The Beatles were never a thing except that our protagonist remembers them and turns their old songs into his good fortune. And the story goes on from there with the standard ups and downs.

    It's formulaic, sure, but it's well executed within the formula. Jokes are setup right, the drama and character crises were built in a good fashion, and the supporting characters were designed in a way to help along the story without becoming the story. Even Ed Sheeran did okay.
    "The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command." George Orwell, 1984

    Watched The Outsiders this weekend for the first time in about 15 years. Still a **** good movie.

    If anyone had attempted to assemble the same cast just 5 years later they would have needed A fortune to fund bringing all that talent in.
