Avengers: Infinity War, on DVD; when I saw it in theaters, I was so emotionally unprepared…this time, I only bawled once or twice… :cry:
It is without a doubt my favorite superhero movie after Wonder Woman (which is the only DC movie that would make my Top 10). Thor: Ragnarok is third on my list

Proud Mary ...... 2018 ..... Taraji P. Hensen ..... Danny Glover
Not as good as I was hoping it would be. Some predictable parts. Glad I didn't spend money on it to see it.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug…this movie makes me feel, in this order, :D (yeah, it's Beorn!!!), :? (why was it necessary to have Azog replace the role of Bolg, if they were going to have Bolg himself show up in the second movie?), :Q (Galadriel!!!), :) (I like the spiders), :roll: (Kili & Tauriel's relationship), :D (Dol Guldur!!!!!!), :nono: (Kili with his head in a bowl full of walnuts or whatever, being healed by Magical Glowing Elf), :angry: (Dwarven Forge Battle), :D (The End; "what have we done?")

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, this morning, followed by a good 40 minutes of Two Towers (deliciously good movies, and I still cry at the Breaking of the Fellowship :cry2: )

A Wrinkle In Time (2018) with my sisters...and I don't know why. The movie was largely forgettable, though I found myself liking Reese Witherspoon, surprisingly.

I discovered the TMC channel.
The Girl from Jones Beach, 1949, is a sweet comedy, mostly notable for the Wait, That's Ronald Reagan moment when I recognized the protagonist.
Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong.

National Treasure, and National Treasure 2, back to back. Good films, with very good acting in my opinion; a pity they never made a third. Nicholas Cage and Diane Kruger are wonderful, and Sean Bean is always fantastic.

Solo. A good backstory to when our heroes meet Han Solo.

Gosnell. I cried through much of this and almost got sick. It's about the doctor who went too far and killed some live babies.

Just have to ask: was Solo good? I never went to see it in theaters, since the reviews looked pretty iffy.

I liked it. Rotten Tomatoes rated it 70%. Those others who saw it liked it too. It was a good movie.

I'll have to watch it then. I'm not a big fan of the recent Star Wars stuff, but that one had actually intrigued me; at the last minute I decided not to go. My sister saw it and said it was good, but she's such an ultra Star Wars fan I didn't trust her opinion: but now it's been recommended by a TORC'er, so that persuades me! :)

Night at the Museum .... Ben Stiller .... Robin Williams ..... 2006

Binge watched all three in the series actually. .. Night at the Museum : Battle For the Smithsonian .... 2009 and Night at the Museum : Secret of the Tomb ... 2014

Told myself I'd watch all three someday. Okay fair especially if your a fan of Stiller's. Do think Owen Wilson & Steve Coogan stole the shows.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. An incredible movie, structured like a really good book, with plot-twists and red herrings, and revelations that have you on the edge of your seat. Maybe a bit difficult for a general audience member to follow along with, but a great movie for die-hard Harry Potter fans (like me!), and really a great movie overall - with Johnny Depp's Grindelwald being the most chilling and believable villain I've seen in a movie recently, and Eddie Redmayne's Newt Scamander making a great comeback, developing into an unexpectedly heroic character and a wonderful protagonist. This movie raises the stakes for the whole franchise, and raises the bar for what can be done with films, making them into the cornerstones of a vast interactive experience with the audience. For that reason, the film could be confusing for a newcomer to the Wizarding World, and the plan might backfire on JK if not enough people participate in her game of cat-and-mouse, but I'm here for every moment of clue-finding, theorizing, world-building and magical entertainment. :)
