    This is an excellent observation.

    The laser bolt was friggin sweet...then by the end of the film a person who found out she was Force Sensitive like 35 seconds ago was able to not only escape all of his guards but hold her own against him.

    Meanwhile he kills his dad as a way for JJ to end that character AND show Kylo is all in trying to be the next Vader (which was an excellent way to accomplish both) only to have Rian turn him into a whiny child again in the next film. If Kylo had taken the next step I think I would like him better instead we had that stupid "connection" crap where he and Rey were stalking each other in their minds. He stopped wearing the mask, he stopped really being evil...and just kind of sucked. (for Obiwons Sake he was fooled by an Astral Projection that he watched "survive" like a thousand laser bolts) To use the prequels as an example...Kylo went from AOTC Anakin being told by Palpatine how great he is to become to ROTS Anakin whining about his lack of respect BACK to AOTC Anakin only the one with Padme on the stupid planet having their rom-com moment. There wasnt any real progression...just little things they did trying to make him look cool that fell flat on their face.

    And that is where I think Rian dropped the ball. By making the "Empire 2.0" complete morons (which he did...they friggin fell for a fake phone call for Pete's Sake) he also had to dumb down the "NuRebellion" to make it work. Neither had a plan worth a ****, all of their strategies were stupid ("find the code breaker!" "CHASE THEM TIL THEY RUN OUT OF GAS!") and in the end it was obvious all it was meant to do was make the "NuRebellion" look outmatched like the original did even though they were a fully formed Alliance/Government in the last film. Meanwhile you have the Dark Lord and the "NuJedi" on a collision course...except they arent because they are also apparently Star Crossed lovers swooning. No wonder Luke did what he did he probably had migraines from all of the facepalms and said "Screw it I am out of here!"

    Gotta say I agree with all of this. JJ set Kylo up to destroy and then EDIT in TLJ he beats Snoke one minute and loses to Rey again. Itís comical really.

    Saw ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP today. I recommend it if you are looking for a Halloween themed popcorn movie.

    The movie knows exactly what it is and never strays from that path. It's pretty standard zombie apocalypse fare, but it has a very redeemable tongue in cheek quality about it. Woody Harrelson chews the scenery as Tallahassee and delivers the same redneck wit he carried in the 1st movie. I also got a kick out of Zoey Deutch playing Madison. Again this movie knows exactly what it is with her character and embraces it.

    Also, hang around through the credits
    It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

I f*ing wanted to shoot her within 30 seconds (if I'm being generous). It was a "mind asplode" experience.

    The other new characters in the story were solid, it's just a rip-roarin' movie, as I hoped it would be. And with sequels, that is the least I can ask, and they surpassed it.

    Hey, Raceboarder, I think we in sorta agreement.
    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.

    Tell me who I am. New Netflix doc.

    Heartbreaking, but excellent watch. Boy loses his memory at 18 in a motorcycle crash, and his twin brother decided to hide his childhood from him as he had a chance to reform all his memories. Of course, the ruse didnít last forever.

    You can like the trailer and so can Scooby...why does that mean I have to? Aspects of the previous story has soured me on it so the visual spectacle isnt enough. That is just how I feel about it.

    I never said anyone had to agree with me on it (I even said it will be an unpopular opinion) but my opinion is just as valid as anyone else's. Dont like it...ignore it it is no skin off my nose man.
    Settle down. You sound like I insulted your mother. I never said your opinion was invalid I simply offered my POV.

    A while back, on another board I frequent, we joked Dis$ney would do this. They will green light anything these days

    The Intern:

    For an outreach program, a hip e-commerce company hires a retiree.

    Yes, it's the DeNiro/Hathaway movie. 100% light-hearted, generation gap, tug at the heart strings, comedy (dramedy? I don't think it reached that level), run of the mill movie. But I enjoyed it. It was a nice break to just sit back and not think about anything, and enjoy what I was watching. It wasn't TOO "anything." It just was what it was, and they were fine with presenting that. A touch better than a "Saturday Afternoon Time-Killer" but not "I want to see it, better add it to my list."

    Dolemite Is My Name

    The story of how Rudy Ray Moore created the character Dolemite, and its success.

    If you don't know the character, I'd say you'd have to watch the original "Dolemite" blaxploitation movie first. This is a fan's movie, through and through. I loved it, and it gives context to the overall reasons why blaxploitation movies were what they were (FTR, I love the genre). A LOT of big names in the cast, including Eddie Murphy, Snoop Dogg, Keegan-Michael Key, Craig Robinson, Chris Rock, Mike Epps, and Wesley Snipes. The movie itself rings of the actual movie they were trying to make in the first place. Make it a double-feature night, in my opinion.

    Edit: the original movie's trailer, NSFW:
