    What Is The Last Film You Watched? (Newer films)

    Sorry to Bother You - Ambitiously strong satire about capitalism and corruption, set in the near future. Lakeith Stanfield is a great lead, and the film is really funny, and witty. Unfortunately it falls apart at the end, when it gets too heavy in its message. That being said, it overall is a very confidently made film, and for a first feature Boots Riley shows a lot of promise. It also gets really crazy, which I admire. Good stuff. - 7.5 / 10

    The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter - Really offbeat "black comedy" of sorts, set in and around North Carolina. Not sure I really enjoyed it, but I did like the father / son relationship, and Josh Brolin is great (though I'm definitely feeling a bit Brolin overload this year), I guess I appreciated it for what it is was, even if in all honesty it only got some laughs out of me. - 6 / 10

    Set it Up - Solid Netflix original film (rare for me to say that). It's actually pretty funny, and entertaining. Also between this and Everybody Wants Some, Glen Powell is becoming one of my favorite of the current "young actors". He's really good. - 7 / 10

    Ant-Man and The Wasp - Lots of fun. It's a good "breather" film between Infinity War and Avengers 4. I laughed a lot (Michael Pena in particular was a riot). Also I was surprised by how good of an antagonist Ghost was. The action was really solid too. - 8 / 10

    Anyone else think James Horner is better than John Williams?

    Yep. Shouldn't even be a question.

    The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada - Great modern day western dealing with betrayal, redemption, and friendship. Tommy Lee Jones is subtly terrific in the lead role, and as the film and The Homesman proves, he's a solid filmmaker, especially when it comes to depicting the west. - 8 / 10
  9. You know, I actually wrote on a "basic story level", which makes more sense, but ha. In the case of FK, the script wasn't good at all, but there were some legit thrilling sequences and I had a good time in the theater, that it didn't bother me as much, so I was more forgiving of its flaws.

    New podcast with yours truly: THE GOLDSMITH ODYSSEY

    Yeah as far as I can tell. I know of score podcasts that are dedicated to covering single film scores, but that's different. My favorite episodes so far are probably 5 through 7, mostly because I got hear to more of Goldsmith's TV work, which is something I have yet to really explore. Wish more of it was directly available on its own, but I understand why it isn't. A Marriage of Strangers sounds like fantastic "dramatic" proto-60's Goldsmith for example. As for strengths / weaknesses. I'd say that you guys are really are passionate about scoring and Jerry's work in particular, and it really shows. I do wish you that you would maybe discuss the scores a bit even more in detail, but that's more of a personal nitpick and me being selfish then anything, as I just love to hear about score discussions in general, and sometimes wish they would never end. I can't wait till you get to discussing the essential scores in Goldsmith's filmography, and his changing styles over the years. Keep up the good work.

    Tag - Really enjoyed this. The actors had good chemistry (Renner and Fisher were particular standouts), and they actually did a lot with the premise of a bunch of grown-ass men playing tag. Plus I laughed quite a bit. - 7 / 10
  13. Universal has already released it in 52 countries, and the JP franchise is massive worldwide. It's already made $170m in China for example. It's gonna make less then JW overall, but that was to be expected.

    Ocean's 8 - Entertaining heist film with a mostly good cast. I didn't find it especially great though, and Ross's direction came off a bit too much like second-rate / diet Steven Soderbergh for my tastes, but it was a good timewaster. - 6 / 10
