Let's see.........

Alita Battle Angel - saw in a report yesterday that Disney is finally considering a 2nd one - oh this is the coolest and best sci fi I have ever seen! It's a rush!

The Mummy (Tom Cruise) probably the best mummy movie ever made - sharply done - (just a PG13 - laced with humor) (you won't get bored)

Oblivion (sharply done - good action sequences)
The Martian (good actors- well done - like Chiwetel Eljofore)
Bourne 1, 2, & 3 (we all know Bourne)
Terminator Dark Fate (spectacular action)
The Equalizer 1 & 2 (Denzel is one of my favorites)
Book of Eli (Denzel again with Mila Kunis)
2 Guns (Denzel and Mark Wahlberg)
Taken 1, 2, & 3 (many fans of this one)
The Transporter 1, 2, & 3 (in the first one Statham's flying round kick was great)

Top Gun (can't wait to get my hands on the 2nd one - they actually flew up in the fighters to get the most real effect and G-pulling)

Matrix 1, 2, & 3 (all time great sci fi)
Iron Man 1 & 2 (different from the comic, but good - in the comic it was a flexible iron suit)
Captain Marvel (Brie was good because she didn't play some uppity super hero - she was real)
Guardians of the Galaxy (laugh my head off - James Gunn really pulled off a good one)
The Chronicles of Riddick (1st time seeing whole CGI imaging backdrops put onscreen)
Tomorrowland (enjoyable with adorable child actors and George Clooney)
Incredibles 1 & 2 (adorable Pixar movies - done very well)
Martin (Lawrence TV show DVDs) (used to make me laugh alot - love the character "Otis the security guard")
Star Trek 1, 2, & 3 (Chris Pine is favorite too)
Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit (Pine and Knightley - CIA)
Valerian and the City of 1000 Planets (Luc Besson - director - has a great sense of humor)
Batman Vs Superman (better than expected)
Wonder Woman (well done - Gal Gadot did great)
Birds of Prey (heavy on the language but Margot Robbie was a riot !)

Ava (again heavy on language - but love these types of assassin movies that are cool - in this they weaved her personal life through it all - Jessica Chastain is a favorite - she showed she can do action movies)

After 11 pm last night I watched Alfred Hitchcock's "Birds", I have watched it several times before over the years. I still find it interesting.

Then "Psycho" came on afterwards, I saw that movie in the theater when it just came out. Me and my Mother went to see it in a theater in Franklinton Louisiana, a little rural hick town, it was special.

Found a new series I really like mom and I watched it twice. It's called almost paradise. It's a crime thing it's really funny and Goofy and it's pretty clean for a crime series.

We like the corny Hallmark romance movies, but I'm a romance writer so that makes sense. :nod Have to watch out now though, since they are introducing gay characters. :sad

There are a few movies that I enjoy watching again, for no real reason, like Mean Girls, Legally Blonde and Miss Congeniality. Silly movies. And sometimes old action movies like Bourne and Terminator. I like movies/stories where good wins over evil. :D (most horror movies have good win over evil, but I don't like anything gory.)

There's a lot of low rated movies that are actually really good haha. Now another one you should trys it has episodes is almost paradise thats another good one. It's a cop like movie thing

I've learned that when it comes to comedies ratings often don't mean much. You have to watch the movie and judge for yourself. Different folks take to different types of comedy.

I grew up on Westerns. Last night I watched Hannie Caulder.

Bend it Like Beckham is a 2002 movie where a girl wants to play soccer but her family doesn't want her to. I think you'd like it. I did. I'll see if I can get my hands on the almost paradise movie. Looks like there's a tv series by the same name. Nope, doesn't appear to be available for me.
