I find IDIOCRASY to be one of those movies that tells better than it views.

I have friends that love the movie, but it didn't really sing to me. Maybe because I felt that the conceit was being drillied in over and over and over again - to the point that I felt that Mike Judge was coming off as snobby.

Though I do very much enjoy OFFICE SPACE and SILICON VALLEY, both also from Judge - he really has a finger on the pulse of corporate and IT culture, to the point that I can't comfortably watch SV because I've experienced too many of the beats he hit firsthand.

To me, the only really funny part of 'Idiocracy' is the voice over which I've been lead to understand was added at the last minute.

SHATTERED GLASS (2003)

Again. I've probably seen this movie close to ten times and I absolutely love it. Great cast and I must say, Hayden Christensen did a wonderful job portraying a character spiraling out of control as his web of lies unraveled.

Truth or Dare (2018). Like a cross between The Ring and Final Destination, but not as good as either.

Fairly entertaining, dumb at times, but never ever scary at any point. In the plus column, it than has more interesting characters/actors than is usual for these kinds of films, and one inspired moment toward the end when the heroine uses her noddle to gain the upper hand momentarily over the antagonist, but it ultimately wastes the opportunity to go in a different direction, and ultimately just riffs on the ending of the Ring.

WOODSTOCK: 3 DAYS OF PEACE & MUSIC (1970) - Director's Cut

In honor of the festival's 50th anniversary.  Whatever your feelings of hippies or the performers, really just an amazing document and a priceless time capsule.  Fascinating and moving, from start to finish.

And the music's not bad, either!

SANTA FE TRAIL (1940)

Errol Flynn, Olivia de Haviland, Raymond Massey and an oddly cast Ronald Reagan (as George Armstrong Custer) in a prolog to the Civil War that seems to lean rather on the side of slavery. Massey’s John Brown is clearly the villain.

Still, watchable, as is often the case when Hollywood paints history with broad, If factually dubious, strokes.

Pitch Perfect 3.

My lordy. There is quite the gulf between this and the rather low-key, yet winning first film.

This film has no real reason for existing other than to contrive a chance to recreate scenes with the characters singing together in that weird auto-tuned group sing that this film series specialises in.

The first sequel was bearable, but this is crap.

ESCAPE ROOM. 

Too much of a SAW rip-off without the somewhat interesting mastermind, for my taste.

As a fan of the first two films (the second to a lesser degree than the first), I agree.  It's like the HANGOVER franchise.  The first was brilliant, the second substantially less so and I never saw the third.  Unfortunately, I saw the third PITCH PERFECT and immediately regretted the 1.5 hours it took away from my life.  It's late 80s TV movie awful.  Nothing I'd ever want to watch again.   Not even the soundtrack is worth the pain.

THE MULE (2018)

Couldn’t do it. Can’t deal with Clint Eastwood as an old, old man!

Wish I'd considered that notion before walking into the theater. Jesus, really didn't need to see him with his shirt off. And seriously? These drug dealers pick a delivery man who could drop dead in the next ten minutes?
