I liked A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood quite a bit. The key thing to remember is this is NOT a biopic, nor is it supposed to bring the show we watched as kids to the big screen. This is simply a movie that gives you a look at Mr Roger's influence on the world around him, and how his point of view is important.

MIDWAY- great real life story of the midway invasion, lots of action and navy battles, inter-weived with some personal stories of the crew of the pilots. plus the hard work of the usa people too win the war! A

ADDAMS FAMILY- cartoon, funny story , lot like the t.v. show, but some of the voices were real bad . kids prob wouldnt like this cartoon, because you real need to see the original to get alot of the jokes. C

1917- great war movie, that leads you on a trip across the war zone and show you what it was like during this war! great acting!

CLASSIC MOVIE REVIEWS,

NEVER SO FEW 1959- frank sinatra, peter lawford, steve mcqueen, in a great war movie about a army group fighting with the locals against the japanese during the war. great action, little comedy, mega superstars! B+

OPERATION PETTICOAT 1959- cary grant & tony curtis play sailers on a wreaked sub trying to get back to the navel yard for repairs, when all sort of trouble happens. great comedy, great acting, lots of guest stars, i like this movie alot it keep me entertained all the way though. A

plus,

BATMAN- ASSAULT ON ARKHAM- a new suicide squad must break into arkham to find something hidden in there by the riddler, but when batman find out , thing get interesting. joker also wants to cause trouble along the way! thought it was a good movie, love to see some of these turned into live action movies. great movie to rent for $2-3 bucks from itunes. B+

Saw the "Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films" documentary. If you like cheesy 80's action movies, and BTS Hollywood stories, it's quite enjoyable.

Got to Zombieland Double Tap, loved it. The Bill Murray appearance was the greatest thing ever.

Saw "Becky" at the Circle Drive-In in Scranton. Plot had Kevin James as an escaped neo-nazi convict (with Kurrgan as his right-hand guy), who goes to a house in the woods and takes a family hostage. Unfortunately for him, the young teenage daughter is a troubled girl who gives the villains a lot more trouble than they bargained for.

I was skeptical on James playing a serious role against type, and while he didn't hit it out of the park, he wasn't bad either. More of a suspense movie than the horror film I was expecting (although there was some good gore scenes), but in the end it turned out to be better than I was expecting it to be. Hits a lot of cliches (although it does flip the script on some of them), but definitely worth a watch.

Saw Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, which was really really terrific. I was wiping tears away a few times too, as Mr. Rogers was an integral part of my childhood.

Gave The Shining, which I never liked, a full devoted rewatch. Still not impressed. Wasn't even scary and Jack has done 15 movies better than that.

Saw Terminator Dark Fate, and I don't get the hate and jeering for this? I thought it was a really good action film. The story was a bit repetitive to previous T films but duh. It made perfect sense, the characters fit the bill, and Linda was a total bad ass. Then again I personally liked Salvation and thought Machines and Genesys were both horrible. Gabriel Luna is one of the BEST Terminator's there's been to date. The CGI and simply the new "upgrades" I thought were great too.

Watched 2015 horror comedy The Final Girls starring Malin Akerman and Taisa Farmiga and loved it!
