A RAINY DAY IN NEW YORK. It was okay. Elle Fanning is quite good, but Woody Allen doesn't really get young people. You get the impression that none of the kids here ever read, heard or saw anything made in the last 60 years.

PARASITE.

Deserves all the praise it's getting. I was given the advice to go in knowing as little as possible, and that advice was correct.

Incredible film! 

Bong Joon-Ho never disappoints. I predict it will compete with Almodovar's PAIN & GLORY for the Oscar in Foreign Language film (and probably win).

Never Surrender: A Galaxy Quest Documentary (2019)

I saw this at a Fathom Events screening this past Tuesday. It was interesting, but nothing spectacular. I would have preferred to see more of the screen time dedicated to those that actually worked on the film rather than Greg Berlanti and Damon Lindelof. Though I was not clocking it, it seemed like interviews with those two accounted for about a third of the film’s running length.

Well, that talked me right out of seeing it.

KNIVES OUT - Excellent.  I love a good whodunnit and this instantly vaults to the top five.  Great cast.  Witty dialogue. Beautifully shot.  Twists a'plenty.  In an era of franchise fatigue, this film stands out as a nod to old-school filmmaking with a contemporary spin, if you will.  Well worth a trip to the theatre.

I also saw Never Surrender: A Galaxy Quest Documentary (2019).   I agree that Lindeloaf is allowed on screen far too much.  Still was a fun doc overall.  It was only in five theaters near me and they all sold out.  My friend and I ended up having to sit in the wheelchair companion seats, which they sold us only because they were the last two seats in the theater. 

I'm trying to picture how the movie would have turned out with Kevin Kline starring and Harold Ramis directing.

FORD V. FERRARI

Fantastic film... took my old man to see this as a belated Thanksgiving get-together, and we both loved it from start to finish.

I can count on one hand the number of car-racing films I've ever seen, but this one was easily the best by far.  Wonderful performances from Christian Bale and Matt Damon.  Smartly written, and a great crowd-pleaser, even if you care not iota for racing or sports cars.

Shaun, there's a documentary about the same subject called The 24 Hour War, that I highly recommend.

Knives Out
My favourite film of 2019 (not much competition though)

When I saw FORD V. FERRARI, I thought it could have been significantly improved by cutting about an hour of personal conversations, character development and Christian Bale's simian performance, while taking a vérité approach with what was left. I'll definitely check out that documentary.
