    Much love for 3 Idiots. I usually can't watch Bollywood stuff since it is too silly and over the top for me, but 3 Idiots manages to stay sane for long enough stretches that I can enjoy it. I think I have watched it 4 times.

    Thor: Ragnarok was one of the most fun movies I have seen in years. Was it silly? Yes. Did I pay attention to plot? Not really. But the comedic performances and chemistry were surprising and fantastic. Unfortunately, it led to the newest M.I.B. which had an amazing cast but tried too hard to be funny and cool.

    Mordred killing the blond guy who knighted Arthur with the lance is another great scene. Modern Hollywood would never allow Boorman to adapt the entire myth from Celtic mythology to The Once and Future King in one movie. The only thing he left out was Mordred taking Camelot and beating (and presumably raping) Guinevere.

    The suits are not even allowing the latest Dune movie to cover the last third of the book, set a decade or so later where the Fremen prayers to Shai-Hulud come true. Paul becoming the Mahdi and dropping nukes on the unbelievers isn’t how “Star Wars for adults” is supposed to end.

    They should have just adapted Planet Hulk and World War Hulk into real movies.

    For sure, I liked Ragnarok also. I was thinking Ragnarok was the fourth Thor movie but apparently I was wrong. It was just the second Thor movie that sucked then.

    I watched the (in)famous Jackie Chan CityHunter Film, from the CityHunter Manga/Anime.

    Long story short: Jackie Chan Humor didn't work well at all with the live action Animu. I should see if the newer French version of City Hunter is better. However, Jackie's version is only good for this below:

    What the...


    So was it an overdose of memberberries, an acknowledgement that the First Order ship models being uninspiring, or Palps being senile, that brought back the old Star Destroyers?

    And what's up with the scrotum and peepee at the bottom of the new old Star Destroyers where the hanger used to be?

    And why didn't Palps just make 50 Death Stars instead of 500 Star Destroyers?

    Was the script originally a Harry Potter script adapted for Star Wars?

    I prefer power couple Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren who met on the set.

    And of course a later version of the Zardoz head makes an appearance

    I did a Boorman retrospective last year, found this movie to have a lot more merit than I remembered from seeing it on television years ago.

    Seeing the PG cut on TV kills the fun. Same with Die Hard, Conan, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
