THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD

This one was okay in spots, but nothing fantastic. I probably would have been okay catching it on DVD but it was fine for a matinee ticket and popcorn break.

And, oh my, Salma Hayek on the big screen ;-)  Still looking great at the age of fifty.

I thought THE HITMAN'S BODYGUARD did its job. I really enjoyed the fight sequence set to "Little Queenie." I came out of the movie thinking, Ryan Reynolds does such a good job playing action heroes with a bit of Bugs Bunny to them, but isn't particularly convincing as a straight-ahead physical badass.

THE KINGMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

I regretted not seeing the first film on the big screen, and wasn't going to miss out for this one.

The most fun I've had at the movies in long time, and definitely worth the price of a 2D IMAX. Visually eye-popping, especially the Italy sequence, and while the violence was once again over-the-top, it was still at such a cartoony level that I didn't mind it.

HELLRAISER

I kid you not!

The Mockingbird Cinema here in Birmingham (England, not Alabama, for anyone who hasn't checked my location) showed HELLRAISER over the weekend.

It has lost none of its effectiveness or power to shock after 30 years!

Still a solid, atmospheric, well-written tale.

The sequel, HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II, was more than watchable, but sadly the law of diminishing returns applies to the franchise. I think they've made about 70 movies since 1987. ;-) 

Coming soon: HELLRAISER IN SPACE. Oops, no they did that. Perhaps it'll be something like HELLRAISER ON A CRUISE SHIP!

THE FOREIGNER

My son has been hounding me to go see it with him the last two weeks. I finally relented. 

Has some layers to it. Decent acting. Very good incidental music. Had some FIRST BLOOD moments.

LBJ - loved it. Woody Harrelson did an incredible job!

The covered roughly 1959 through his first address to congress.

I wish they would have covered more ground. If it was not for Harrelson's portrayal, I probably would not have liked it as much, but he lifted the movie up.

John Carpenter's The Thing (1982)

A 70mm print with the original 6 channel magnetic soundtrack.  I was blown away by a movie I hadn't seen other than on cable in the 80s.  The practical effects were so good and there was one scare about 3/4ths into the movie that I had forgotten about and it totally got me. 

Portland has a really good revival house, The Hollywood Theater, and because they have the 70mm projector, I've gotten to see a lot of movies on the big big screen in the last couple years.  (Tron was my other favorite)

Was it the figure walking past the lab where Fuchs is working?

Thor: Ragnarok

I liked it quite a bit, but I can see where the humor might be a bit too much for Thor fans (and I'm referring to the comic book readers, not the movie fans).

Murder on the Orient Express Wonderful! Well acted, beautiful score and gorgeous to look at. I have not seen the 1974 version, so I cannot compare the two.

I also saw Thor: Ragnarok earlier in the week and did not like it at all. Almost every scene was played for laughs, which did not work for me.

Pippi in the South Seas (1970)

Kids matinee at the New Beverly Theater. English dub of the Sweedish film. Lots of fun. My 3 and 6 yr olds loved it.

I saw Kingsmen : The Golden Circle in Screen x format.

It was..... interesting. This format has the film projection extend to the sides of the theater (around half of each side). This extra stuff is a supplemental to the main image and fits seamlessly so that the film captures your entire field of view. Very cool in some parts/ a bit distracting in others. I can see a film with a "cast of thousands" (like a war film) being much more visually impressive in this format. 

ScreenX is only available in a couple of theaters in the US and was not more expensive than a regular ticket. Some nice things about the theater served cocktails, various flavored popcorn, brought your food to your seat before the film and had a nice lounge to hang out in before and after the film. The thought that this upgrade to the average movie theater experience must be a reaction to cinema is taking a financial hit from home streaming services went through my head as I watched the film.

Here's a ScreenX demo if anyone is interested.

As far as the film goes, like others mentioned above. It was a fun movie. Not earth shattering but fun.
