I can at least tick The Girl on the Train off my list, though! Right now, though, I just want Moana to win best Animated Feature and the Salesman to win best Foreign Language Film.
  2. Hidden Figures (2016) is actually really good, but I felt they could have pushed the envelope just a little bit further into these fascinating womens' lives. All 3 main stars were wonderful, though, really encouraging to see how good Jaenelle was, got high expectations for her performance in Moonlight now. Right Now, Wrong Then (2015) was incredible, but I could not stomach a lot of it due to the affair between Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee, which is kind of gross to see a version of it play out on-screen. It is just kind of creepy to me, and I can't get over that. Tower (2016) was a very well-done documentary about the University of Texas shooting in '66, but I kind of went in hoping for more on the shooter than just the entire incident and the victims. Almost no mind was paid to the shooter, who was most probably suffering from some mental issues plus he had a tumor in his head and had a history of physical abuse in his childhood, but the most attention paid to him I felt was just making him out to be this piece of shit, good for nothing monster. Kind of didn't address any particular issue, was just a historical, visual account of the incident.

Been watching a ton of animation (I still need to watch Know Your Name), And the Surf's Up 2 is there because I almost never miss a chance to watch a WWE Studios film. Today was pretty good, though, 4 movies in a day, which used to be considered average for me but now I barely have time for one movie a day
  4. ***spoilers***

    Bellator is 170 spoilers:
  5. That Cleveland / Spurs game is fucking phenomenal. Loved it. Gonna rewatch it later.
  6. Arrival (2016) has totally made me kick myself for forgetting how incredible Denis Villeneuve is. He manages to inject his films with such an atmosphere that is impossible to compete against. I absolutely need to watch Enemy, I can't believe I haven't watched it yet, especially as many say that's his best film yet.
  7. Hooooooly shit. I did not see any of that coming, not in the slightest. I'm not even sure if I'm a big fan of it yet!
  8. I'm gonna watch it now! Also, Voltron season 2 came out today!
  9. Eh, it's the All Star game, it doesn't really matter, does it? Though I am surprised Kawhi actually made the starting 5 again. Butler starting as well.
  10. I hope it does well. It doesn't look like it'll change anything about the genre, but hopefully it can be improved upon in future films? What I'm worried about are the actors who play the Power Rangers, because they're not good. Like, at all. I feel like the attention of the film is going to be focused upon them and if there'll be a mindfuck of CGI action. But I want it to do well, and I like the costumes and the robots because, well, it's cool to see new iterations of costumes.
  11. Fences (2016) was fucking incredible. Viola Davis is a storm.
  12. Yeah, but iZombie made it glorious!
  13. 13th (2016) was amazing. It didn't feel like a regular talking heads documentary to me, and while it had to go through some real important shit real fast at times, it is still such essential viewing to me. There might even be something you have never connected before. Incredible stuff.
