Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. 8/10. Eddie Redmayne is a little rubber-faced as Newt Scamander, but the rest of the cast is good; the plot is good, and flows well, but depends heavily on the naivete of Newt Scamander. The winter scenes, and the setting of MACUSA's headquarters in the Woolworth's building are clever. There are some eerie reflections of 2016 America in the fears of a persecution of the Magical community of 1926.

Overall, well worth seeing.

One note, the AVX 3-D I saw it in keeps going in and out of focus - the regular big screen edition is apparently much better that way.

Purge Election Year
2 out of 10
One and two were 8s . This was a complete dud. I love post apocalyptic movies and although this is not one the whole idea of no law and everyone is forgiven after the purge is over is a fantastic idea.
The first 2 movies did a good job playing withthe desperation of trying to survive a deadly night while keeping an audience entertained with murderous characters.
Number 3 was a political bore of illuminati/arayan rich idiots vs the mixed race of the poor struggling to beat the powerful at their own game. Oh yeah...we still have murderous cartoonish characters.

I believe the last movie I saw from beginning to end credits was Moana. I'd give it a good 9/10.

Hidden Figures - 9.5/10 - if you haven't seen this, you MUST!

Great storytelling, good character development, great sense of place and time - and three feisty, intelligent, female leads.

watched Rope the other day (Hitchcock) and it was, as always, fantastic. I'd rate it 8/10 only because it has a limited appeal. it's a very tense film, very suspenseful, and i definitely enjoy it, but it lacks the lushness that comes with other movies, even of the same era. it doesn't make me want to sink into the world of the movie - it has a similar feel to it that 12 Angry Men does, or Rashomon, or To Kill a Mockingbird. There's a point to it.

also i fucking loved the almost-overt feedee relationship in FB.

it was nice to have that represented fucking FINALLY in the harry potter world - a fat person who is a genuinely and sincerely nice person, and who also gets the privilege of being in love with someone who appreciates them and their appetites.

Mama Mia. Seriously, rented it the other day it was the first time I saw it. I'd give it 9.5/10.

The last movie I saw? Well, I took a chance and gave the new GHOST IN THE SHELL movie a try.

I'm a big fan of the manga and the anime.

The movie was better than I thought it would be...it wasn't outstanding but I managed to find it entertaining.

I still prefer the anime but I'd give this a respectable 7/10.
