Really liked Trumbo. Excellent dialogue and direction. Didn't buy the Kirk Douglas side of the story, while Edward G Robinson was treated unfairly. Overall though, this and Bridge of Spies are among Hollywood's finest product of this fall-winter Oscar season. Naturally both have bombed at the box office.

Some other stuff I have seen:

Brooklyn - Very Jim Sheridan-y. Nothing special outside of Saroise's interesting face. You will forget it almost immediately.

Creed - I don't understand the accolades for this. It is nice to see Sly again, but there are no new ideas to surround the otherwise competent production. Did not like the young boxer, neither the character nor the actor, and the romance is unconvincing with a poorly written female character.

Spotlight - A pleasant two-hour diversion, which should be a strange thing to say about a story that concerns itself with a molestation scandal.

The Big Short - I admire the various devices they used to tell a complicated story, in order to keep the lay view attuned. Very interesting for this reason. But I don't think this is terribly subversive - is anything anymore?

Irrational Man - Woody is charmingly out of touch. Philosophy is no longer glamorous - certainly not to millennials.

The Revenant is a great looking film that I enjoyed.

I finally saw The Imitation Game. A very ordinary and forgettable film, but not bad for a biopic. Cumberbatch was good. The historical inaccuracies don't really bother me, as they were in the service of crafting a story. But since they were going to invent so much, the filmmakers could have been more inventive. Go big or go home, I think. Either stick closely to the real life story, or play around and make something creative that people might actually want to watch again after Oscar season ends. I give it a 6/10.

I also saw The Hateful Eight. It's a spectacular failure of a movie. Those are always worth watching and discussing. Bloated and heavy-handed, but engrossing. Jackson and Goggins are great. 7/10.

The Big Short is ok. Its mostly cool because I enjoyed 2008 as an investor (I had just taken my money out and missed the whole destruction of world makets thingy).

Hateful Eight - I don't know man, I have to rewatch it again, but I don't feel like it. It wasn't bad, I liked the characters, just...maybe a bit too loaded.

Selma was better than I expected. Righteous Hollywood filmmaking done right, for the most part. A film about self-declared moral certainty is actually refreshing in this deeply cynical day and age. 8/10.

Definitely a better film than The Imitation Game.

Trainwreck - A cool romcom, ya just fall in love with Amy and Bill Hader's relationship. John Cena almost fucked the movie up. Even Lebron was a better actor.

Couples Retreat was just on my local TV. Vince Vaughn is a real gem. So funny. It's a film full of good jokes and sexy babes (all PG of course). Good clean fun.

It'd figure into any top 5 list of the 2010s.

That scene where Harrison learns Adèle's secret is really powerful. What acting.

Just behind Citizen Kane for me.

Next installment of the Cloverfield series will re-adapt the screenplay for Amour, but then incorporate aliens in the surprise ending.

After seeing Paul Schrader give a talk in Atlanta, I finally saw Auto Focus. It was good, but I just don't buy Greg Kinnear as a heterosexual man.

The Gods of Egypt is pretty silly, but I liked it. An old school fantasy adventure with gorgeous CGI eye candy.

Altogether it was like a very expensive Cannon film.

Jump-starting a 70s Hollywood binge.

Charley Varrick - 8/10
Being There - 8/10
Time After Time - 7/10

Just picking these randomly. Varrick is the big surprise - plays a lot like a Coens brothers movie.
