Patriot’s Day. The Mark Wahlberg movie about the Boston Marathon Bombing. Pretty straightforward telling of the story from both the bombers and police perspectives. Wahlberg’s character is a made up amalgam of several people so he could be everywhere, but he wasn’t played up as some supercop that took them down singlehandedly. Better than I thought it would be.
21 Bridges. The Russo Bros and Chadwick Boseman team up for a typical cop drama. Dirty Cops is such a cliche, it’s not even a difficult “plot twist” to discern anymore. It was mediocre.
Doctor Sleep. The sequel to The Shining. Meh.
Yesterday. Guy wakes up after getting hit by a bus and is the only person in the world who remembers the Beatles. So he starts performing their music as his own. Had higher hopes for it. The premise sounds fantastic. The film was okay.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. This almost didn’t feel like a Tarantino film, but it was fantastic. Probably my favorite out of his last 4-5 films(if you count Grindhouse). Knowing a bit of history about the Manson Murders, I was NOT expecting that ending.
Also, my son “discovered” Quentin Tarantino recently when he watched Pulp Fiction, so we did a QT marathon last weekend; Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, True Romance, both Kill Bills, and Inglourious Basterds. He also watched Django and Hateful Eight while I was at work.
