Ok, I have to admit that I found Maui's hippo-like physique a little off-putting. But that's a different matter.

I agree on Maui. His legs are disproportionately short and makes him look odd.

Logan Lucky

It's a bit of an odd duck. It's not a great movie. But it is a very solid good movie. In one sense, it's a movie you've seen before. If you've seen Ocean's (Number), that is. (Because it's directed by the Ocean's director.) It's p much just like one of those with a fun palette swap. Instead of handsome and debonair folk robbing a casino, it's a group of oddly charming, uh, Appalachians doing the thieving.

Charming Tater - oops - Channing Tatum taking the lead role of Billy Ocean Jimmy Logan, and filling his cohort with a motley crew, including Bond, James Bond Daniel Craig. I can tell you this much: Channing Tatum continues to demonstrate what a treasure he is on the big screen.

Maybe not worth a big screen visit but should be a fun popular diversion when it invades your home.

I didn't find any mention of "Colossal" yet. It seems like it might be a black comedy, and it is to a point, but it's more like an indie drama also with giant monsters.

Anne Hathaway plays Gloria, who goes back to her home town because she's broke, homeless, and a dysfunctional alcoholic. She meets up with Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), a childhood acquaintance and, unfortunately for her alcoholism, a bar owner.

She starts hanging out with Oscar and his friends, but the drama starts when she discovers her actions in a park near her house translates exactly to a monster destroying Seoul. There's a twist or two I don't really want to spoil, but Oscar goes from being just an unfortunate choice of companion to a toxic codependent pretty quickly. The fantastical element makes the actions of Gloria and Oscar more morally clear and generally palatable.

A quick warning, the relationship does include violence, but I found Oscar's manipulation - and his companion's complicity - more stressing. He quickly discovers she often blacks out and doesn't remember events. At first, it seems like his reminding her of what transpired is benign, but we as the audience see how that progresses, and I began to wonder how much of the earlier conversations were lies.

Jason Sudeikis does a heel turn really well, I was impressed.

The Last Days of Disco

Quote:
Alice (ChloŽ Sevigny): Do you really think we know each other well enough to move in together?
Charlotte (Kate Beckinsale): Well, maybe that's good.
Alice: Its not just that we don't know each other well. I'm not even sure we really like each other.
Charlotte: That's okay. You know, Alice, I'm not so much of a bitch as I seem.
A long, talky movie where young people go to clubs, date, dance and generally make a mess of their lives, set just before the disco lifestyle collapses.

Happy Death Day

Look, I was p much on board the second I saw the trailer for this movie, I dunno, a couple of weeks ago. Slasher movie plus Groundhog Day concept? Oh yeah. That sounds like my jam. For the genre savvy, there aren't going to be any surprises. But not, to my good fun, paint by numbers either. It was a fun ride as our heroine figures out just what the fudge is going on.


They even post script lampshading itself as a Groundhog Day thing at the end.

I really enjoyed it and I have no regrets in loving it.

Zootopia I was expecting generic animated kids film where animals bounce at me in bright colors for an hour and a half, but instead got an engaging movie about prejudice with interesting characters and a nice little mystery story. Sure it's still a kids movie but well done and I was entertained. I mean, they make you feel for a meter maid ticketing people.
I quite liked the inventive landscape of sentient animals and the different environments that would entail, it was clear people put some thought into this film.
