That was my a priori as an introvert.

I kinda liked Terminator. Worth it if you're a fan of Sarah Connor as played by Linda Hamilton.

Motherless Brooklyn

Isn't Motherless Brooklyn getting good buzz?  I am curious about Doctor Sleep but was weary given I always loved the Shining and Kubrick.  So far I haven't heard any buzz from it but see /Filmcast just reviewed it. So I may listen to the pre-spoiler section and decide to watch or just wait.

Couldn't sell myself on trying to struggle through Motherless Brooklyn. That trailer looks rough, and I have no faith in Norton playing a character like that without it going horribly wrong. It probably is the most 'important' of the bunch. Last Christmas has gotten some vague talk here and there that implies there's something more to it, but that it's still just a decent romcom centered around a holiday. I might see it, though I think my feeling of obligation will get me out to that car movie.

None of the four films have >59 ratings on Metacritic so Motherless Brooklyn can't be getting that strong of buzz. Of course all but Last Christmas have being >2 hours going against them (especially if I was going to watch them on a weeknight). All four seem more like "catch up on streaming or from the library down the road" kind of films. Especially since I saw 17 films in the theatre between Halloween and this past Sunday (mostly festival viewings) a break would probably be reasonable.

Not sure what else will be hitting my AMC this weekend but I do have Ford v Ferrari as an option, though I'll be prioritizing Charlie's Angels.

They opened a dine in AMC near the train station in Philly with a Dolby screen. Considered going to FvF in that one, but don't think I'll have enough time to make it after Marriage Story a few blocks up. Also, idk if I'd actually order food?

To express my last post in the modern vernacular:


Ford v Ferrari is also very long. Think Charlie’s Angels and Last Christmas sounds the choice double feature for the weekend. Also there is an Indian warrior princess film at my AMC this weekend that is well under 2 hours.

FVF blows.

I'd be doing at least half of that double feature this weekend if I wasn't heading in to the city for ScarJo v. Driver.
