A Quiet Place - 8/10

Solid movie. Managed to keep the tension up. The silent thing you don't really notice after a while.

Like all sci-fi/horror movies, you have to suspend your disbelief at a lot of stuff.

Probably the only thing that bothered me:

At the end when they discover the cochlear implant feedback harms the creatures.

You have an alien invasion of monsters that have ultra-sensitive hearing and nobody thought to try to attack it with sound?

I assume it was some specific frequency only, but still. It almost felt like the end of Signs where the aliens end up being harmed by water, something very abundant on the planet they invaded.

Annihilation 6/10

Decent job by Portman, one terrifying ursine encounter, no heavy lifting required. Wide open for a cheap sequel.

Watched Tomb Raider and Unsane recently.

Tomb Raider wasn't too bad. One of the better "video game movies" to come out. Much better than what the Resident Evil movies did for the game.

Unsane was pretty cool. The whole movie was shot on an iPhone 7 Plus. Made you question who was really crazy.

I also booked my ticket for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on June 8, 2018 in a Dolby Cinema. Really looking forward to this one.

Ghost Stories 6/10
We stumbled across this on demand, and it somewhat delivered.

The acting was good, several familiar faces. It wasn't scary per se, but there were a few genuinely chilling moments. 3 stories that led up to an interesting twist and some decent ideas throughout, even if it's all predicated on a rather stale theme.

I won't watch it again, but it made for a decent enough bit of entertainment.

My wife had a hard time with some of the British accents though. I personally enjoyed them - made me think of some old friends from across the pond.

I watched Kong: Skull Island at 0 dB. Already seen the movie in IMAX but watched it again to see how the sound mix was at home. While it was fairly impressive, it wasn't as "explosive" as the sound mix for Godzilla (2014). Godzilla's sound mix was pretty intense/crazy with insane bass. Kong: Skull Island's sound mix was comparatively toned-down (even in the bass department). Plus, Godzilla's roar > Kong's roar.

Farenheit 451 . . . 7/10

This is the recent HBO reboot of the Ray Bradbury book and classic 1966 movie by the same name.

This has some interesting new twists including barbs at political correctness and over-reliance on comms tech. + .5 each for Michael Shannon and Sofia Boutella. It's good, but nothing epic. I have a soft spot for late 60's, early 70's sci fi, so it was nice to see what they did with this and that they added some updated current relevance.

I enjoyed it as well for what it was but I highly doubt a sequel will be made as it may be the first SW movie to lose $.

That would be mindboggling but then again Disney shouldnt expect a billion dollar movie out of every Star Wars film they make. If it can goto 500 million global it should be ok. But it also could be a slow burn and make its money over time with disc sales and tv showings.

My understanding is that it cost around $250 million to make, including advertising costs. It has already made $265+ million so far, and will continue to make a lot more, especially when it hits DVD and rentals. Disney isn't losing anything here; they're just not raking in nearly as much as they're used to. When it's all said and done, they'll probably profit a couple or three hundred million, and if anyone claims that profiting "only" a couple hundred mil is a failure, then I'll thank anyone for slapping that person a couple hundred million times.

Watched Tomb Raider and Thor Ragnarok today.

Both movies were a lot of fun to watch.
TR I enjoyed the different take on the game storyline. Great action bits and she got abused just as much as my Lara did in the game

Thor, really loved the 80s rock music with over the top comic book fighting . Great humor, lived the storyline

Revenge of the Sith. A solid antidote for episodes 7 and 8/10.

It's been a while since I watched it last, some of the dialog is a bit of a stinker but overall still awesome.

It is the best of the prequels at least, that's for sure.

Still, lots of roll eye moments unfortunately.
