Adam doesn't look like a badass to play Kylo.
The problem with Adam Driver playing a villian in Star Wars is -at least in my mind- Adam Driver had already typecasted himself as a loathing idiot in Girls (which was the best thing about that show).

The last "good" movie I watched is a 2017 American "comedy" “The House”, starring Will Ferrell.

The last "good" movie & the last bad movie do not mean the same thing?

Sure... if you like to write the same movie name in two different threads about a good movie and a the same "good" movie (or a bad movie and "bad" movie).
Well... it's your choice nonetheless Winking Face

Here are three vintage films that I recently rewatched that have merits. Not necessarily for all tastes though.

The Adventures of Robin Hood
The 1938 Errol Flynn Technicolor extravaganza.


Harold and Maude
The 1971 blackish comedy about a suicidal boy and the full of life old woman who befriends him.


The Magic Christian
The subversive little 1969 British comedy with Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr. About the world's richest man who operates on the belief that anyone can be bought, and tests it every day.

The Greatest Showman.

Wow! Just wow. I ignored this when it was in theaters last year and checked out the digital download on a whim, expecting nothing. What an absolutely terrific feel good movie. I also didn't even realise it was a musical - I knew nothing about it.

On RottenTomatoes, it's rated 55% critics review. Screw them. They're wrong and I'm right (along with 89% positive audience reviews). Wonderfully entertaining straightforward movie, easily digestible by the masses, brought smiles and tears to my face. Big enthusiastic thumbs up for me.

I admire Soderbergh (even though I don't love him) because he's tackled so many different genres with such a unique look/feel.
Foy is solid in the lead, and the story, disguised as a psychological-thriller, took some decent twists on a timely take on the whole #metoo and what women can go through.
Pretty cool that he shot it all on an iPhone and it doesn't feel too obtrusive/gimmicky.
