    Tag.
    Group of guys play tag for 30 years (based on a true story). It was eh, I mostly played Picross during it. Felt like it went too long.

    Song of the Sea.
    I wish academy awards voters actuslly watched the movies nominated. This had a very Ghibli feel to it, but a unique tale with amazing animation and style.

    Krumpus.
    Cheesy, dark humor. Was ok. Felt like a Goosebumps episode or something. Good use of practicals though!

    Trick r Treat.
    Same guy as Krumpus, good use of practicals, and similar dark humor. Felt more like a Treehouse of Horrors, and was put together very well. Really enjoyed it!

    The VVitch.
    I heard it was really good and creepy, but wasn't either for me. Not into the time period but just... I dunno very slow with little payoff I guess, especially the ending.

    The Brain. An unruly teen, after pulling another prank, is sent to see a behavioral specialist (who also has a local TV show, that's about to go national), only to find out that the doctor is using his patients as guinea pigs for mind control experiments with a bizarre sentient brain. Bad, just bad. But I saw it as part of Mystery Science Theater 3000's 30th anniversary live tour; so bad in a good way.

    Teen Titans Go to the Movies. In flight movie and never watched the show, but movie was pretty funny with some of their gags and 80's-ness.

    Checked out Atomic Blonde... jesus that movie was a ride and just an all around solid film with good acting cinematic camera angles and little clues and references scattered through out and plenty of twists and turns and lots of action and violence and girl power. The one thing that threw me off was the actor that plays the new Charles Xavier from X-Men is in it and he played a TOTALLY different character that he performed well but I just didnt see that coming from him. But its basically just a more over the top female James Bond with more violence and sex, and stoli's on ice.

    Kong: Skull Island.
    Finally got around to seeing this. It was ok, just never a fan of Kong, but got to see it at some point before I see him shove a tree down Godzilla's throat again :p

    Pre-Hysteria!
    Wow, haven't seen this one since I was real little! For a super low budget company, the animatronics aren't bad and pretty cute (although a lot of re-used footage :p) Cheesey kids movie, but I sure enjoyed them when I was younger. Moonbeam Entertainment did some interesting sci-fi for kids movies.

    Winchester. A doctor is sent to evaluate the sanity of Sarah Winchester, at the behest of the board of the Winchester Co, due to her constant erratic construction on her mansion. The movie seems like it was supposed to be a historical drama, but it devolves to a horror movie with nothing but jump scares and tries to legitimize itself with a "inspired by a true story" tag line. Not a bad movie, persay, but with a wealth of Gothic horror movies out there, it is forgettable and underwhelming.

    Crazy Rich Asians.
    I normally get bored by the typical rom-com movie, but this one actually held my interest and I actually liked it.

    Bladerunner 2049.
    Very very nice imagery. I actually preferred this over the gritty, dark original.

    The Hunch Back of Notre Dame, because I am on a Disney and Christmas kick this month and I just got to the Notre Dame area in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. Man did this movie progress at lightning speed, its only an hour and a half and it feels very rushed. But despite that it really deals with some dark themes and when priest frollo has a whole song about his "burning desire" after seeing esmerelda do her gypsy dance I was like Holy Crap, in a kids movie? Then I noticed they selected Demi Moore to do her voice (this film and her other film Striptease oddly released one week after this one in 1996, so a gyspy dancer in a G rated kids film, then a stripper in a R rated grown up film, interesting), so I can see why this film may be a bit controversial, but I actually enjoyed it plenty and thought the message was over all good, but still hit a few off notes. I really enjoyed all the Paris and France architecture of the buildings and the cathedral, they really brought the setting to life. It all just felt like there should have been just a little bit more.

    Toy Story 1 and 2 just because it had been forever and they are showing tons of disney movies on Free Form and I have them set to DVR. These were a nice trip down memory lane, especially the first one.

    I watched Jingle All the Way for the first time today with the fam, man was that movie a slap stick fest. I enjoyed the adult and child humor and cartoony-ness of it all, decent little holiday movie and Arnie is always an enjoyable watch.

    And while we are on it. My christmas movie/special haul this year has included Mickey's Christmas Carol, Mickey's Once Upon a Christman, Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too, The Little Drummer Boy, Toy Story That Time Forgot, Santa Clause is Comin' to Town, and I will likely watch The Santa Clause, and Home Alone 1 and 2 and possibly National Lampoons Christmas Vacation (which btw the day after christmas AMC is doing a National Lampoon Marathon of all of the Vacation movies) and the new ducktales christmas episode. I have been in a bit more of a holiday spirit this year and watched some nostalgiaic stuff. I couldnt find the original Rudolph or Frosty the Snowman or How the Grinch Stole Christmas originals which I found odd but Santa Clause is Comin to Town is an over looked one with the same old stop animation style, the nostalgia is real.

    So I recently bought a blu-ray copy of Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms entirely on a whim knowing almost nothing about it. And I'm hella glad I did, because it's an absolutely amazing film. Recommend.

    The Shape of Water was absolutely fantastic. I loved the 1962 setting and aesthetics, the story and characters were solid, the art direction, the music selection. There are so many layers to this thing its incredible and very well done. How did they pull off a mute main character? It had moments where I felt like I was watching a disney movie, and others where its totally evident that was not the case. This story of these 2 secluded and different beings breaking the barrier of species and finding love based on the most basic of living communication was an rousing point taken. Also it was obvious it played to the furry community whether that was intentional or not, so thats a plus, and I just found myself thinking at multiple parts of the movie that Elisa was BUCK WILD, but really just desperate to find happiness and do what ever it took considering an entire life of not being able to speak. She was really quite a character and very curious, her actress was amazing as well. I think these type of films are really where Del Toro shines, where he makes an original work all thought up in that ever moving head of his, like Pans Labyrinth which gives a similar vibe, but I enjoyed this movie more. Idk something about the characters that are different the way these are really connect with me. Definitely a must watch.
