    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Count me as someone who saw Shazam and enjoyed it. I'm seriously considering seeing the Pikachu movie, I'm trying to decide if that is a sad idea or not.

    Another excellent documentary is on the subject is In the Shadow of the Moon from 2007.

    I had the same reaction. I couldn't quite keep up with the story.

    The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is not oscar bait. It is pleasant, but not as good as the earlier Lego movies. There is a song called Catchy Song(that song will get stuck in your head) will probably end up as a skating exhibition song.

    Saw They Shall Not Grow Old today. It was moving and horrifying. Just remember that it was commissioned by the Imperial War Museum, BBC and 14-18NOW which are ALL UK organizations. This documentary is focused on the British Army frontline infantry. What they go through is what any infantry unit...

    Really loved this movie. Very well acted. As someone with A LOT of relatives in the deep south during the 60s, I can attest to accuracy.

    I saw Mary Poppins Returns. If I had not seen Mary Poppins(when it was released in 1964 and then with my children when it was released on VHS) I would have said it was a fantastic movie, but I agree that Mary Poppins Returns lacks something that I cannot pinpoint either. Emily Blunt was...

    Aquaman is a very good superhero movie. Once again the special effects are fantastic. I seem to write that phrase often. Note that Julie Andrews's voice is used for Karathen.

    Saw Mortal Engines. It is a dystopian film with incredible computer generated effects. I enjoyed it, but it is formulaic with stock characters. But I loved the steampunk metropolis jalopies.

    I saw Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindewald. There seems to be a lot of upset over plot holes. I enjoyed the movie and have decided to just trust Rowling. It is her universe.

    DWTS Season 27

    I never thought I would ever use the word gobsmacked, but there it is.

    DWTS S26: All-Athletes Edition! (i.e. the DWTS thread for NOT yammering about what happened 24 years ago)

    That 4 week idea was awful. We couldn't watch anyone develop over a season. Bleh

    Tonya cries with ease. If anyone remembers the 1994 Olympic long program with Tonya crying about her skate lace and poor Josee Chouinard getting jerked out of warm-up to go on the ice.

    I loved it when Merle hugged Mirai during the visit and both glared at Alan
