Just watched John Wick 1 again. 

What a great movie. 

With...a pencil...with a f*cking pencil...

Saw End Game. Disney could imprint an Avengers logo on a giant pile of @The Crusher dung and sell it for a billion dollars, which isn't too far off from what they did here.

I will never understand how a country that is increasingly fixated on income inequality we collectively keep throwing 100's of millions of dollars into a tiny handful of pockets. 

Spend and spread those dollars on independent cinema

Doesn’t usually take me 3 hours and 5 minutes too poop either.

Saw "Rocketman" in a very nice new recliner/restaurant theater with the Mrs.

A bit different from "Bohemian Rhapsody" in this is more of a musical than a biography. Surprised it wasn't a Broadway musical first, and will be surprised if it is not made into one. If you enjoy Elton John's music and aren't expecting 2 hours of a by the book timeline description of his life, a good way to spend an evening.

Also word of warning for parents; be kind to your kids. Because if your kid becomes a musical superstar worthy of a film-length life story, said kid will not be kind to you in said movie if you were an a-hole. 

Be advised; lots of drug use and gay sex.

It's hard to think of too many other films that captured me from start to finish like The Last Black Man in San Francisco. Yes it's about gentrification, but it's so much more. Without a doubt one of the most original films of this decade. The whole thing felt like a poem.

Clint Eastwood is a great director, has done some incredible work and rarely throws up a dud but The 15:17 to Paris was not one of his better efforts. 

True story about 3 friends (2 military) who squelch what could have been a really bad terrorist attack on a train bound for Paris, truly an heroic act. 

But he used the actual guys who aren’t actors and it just fell flat. Basically an hour 15 minute back story of them becoming friends then backpacking through Europe and 10 minutes of the attack. 

Not very good.

The Mule was also pretty dull.

Bohemian Rhapsody was a fine, superficial glossing of the Queen story that could have been made about literally any band. You simply can’t allow living band members involved with these projects because they spike all the good, troubling parts of the history. It’d be like letting Slash and Duff McKagan “consult” on the GnR biopic while knowing they’re just going to protect the brand. Malek winning an Oscar says a lot more about how much people miss Freddy Mercury than it does about Malek’s performance. The guy who played Mercury in that ID channel documentary on Queen was significantly better.

Well said.  Like my favorite part of the movie to illustrate just that sentiment, is when the flamboyant gay party animal slacker, couldnt show up to the studio on time and the band loses patience and suddenly the brains of the group creates one of the most iconic songs in music history by slapping a beat on their thighs with no help from the lead singer.  

Or like how they showed no issues of him getting intimate with a female but the one time it almost happened with a male...Oh no!  Let's not show that. lol

Rocketman was good. The Rocketman scene specifically is the best scene I've seen in any movie in i don't even know how long. Yesterday is a fantastic premise horribly ruined.

Spider-Man far from home was good. I liked how they built up Mysterio.

Midsommar, I don't know what to think about this one. I didn't hate it, but didn't love it either. Just strange and trippy.

Just saw Bohemian Rhapsody.

You guys are f*cking crazy.

Not the best rock movie of all time but damn fine good, entertaining and that bug eyed guy deserved the Oscar. 

Was never a huge Queen fan but I think they did a good job telling the surface story. I hear they are going to do another one where the go more in depth. 

I liked it. I think @T0mShane is just a homophobe.  And a safetyphobe.

Interesting question about the best rock movies ever made

My vote is Eddie & The Cruisers II. Closest thing to the real experience of trying to get it all together.

I am one awkward weekend away from being a high-ranking gay and Bohemian Rhapsody was trash.

Was not told accurately. Concert footage on a movie sized screen is always good if you like the act.

I'd have to go with "Almost Famous".  So much of that movie was so well done, right down the the soundtrack which was originals designed to sound like they were written in that decade, which was impressively successful.

Was going to say Almost Famous. 

Great movie. The plane scene was LOLworthy. 

“I’m gay!” 

Whut?!?

BTW, I saw "Yesterday", well....yesterday.  I get there were some overall disappointments, but I thought it was a fun movie overall.  And there was one moment that chilled me to the bone (no spoilers but if you saw it, you know).  That was worth every moment and dollar of the experience for me.
