John Wick III, Parabellum.  Like the first 2, only more so (167!). Ending is a set up for IV. Loved it

Heard he's making another "Bill and Ted" movie. Should be fun.

On recent flights to and from Africa:

Vice
BlacKkKlansman
If Beale Street Could Talk
The Mule
Can You Ever Forgive Me?

There were a couple of others, but I can't remember them right now.  I liked The Mule and BlacKkKlansman best from the above list.

Rocketman.  I hated it, but others in my group liked it.

Why?  I saw it and a bit more "musical like" for my taste but overall not that bad.  Bohemian Rhapsody was better for sure...but this was good. The music is fantastic...and a little backstory on John and Taupin was great (for those that did not know).

I don't like it when actors sing their lines.  I didn't care for the large dance numbers and I found some the acting to be of the over-the-top daytime soap opera variety.  I did enjoy Bohemian Rhapsody much more than this.

Green Book

Predictable and too much like Driving Miss Daisy but I liked it more than I expected. The two lead actors were very good.

Rolling Thunder Revue

Some extraneous stuff that wasn't necessary but there are some terrific performances. Dylan playing Simple Twist of Fate by himself. Several songs from Desire (with Scarlet Rivera on violin) and Knockin' On Heaven's Door with McGuinn.

Wow, that's going back a year or two!

Rocketman. Thin, well-known story but the staging of the scenes is very original and entertaining. More like a Broadway musical on steroids than anything else.

I caught this last night by accident.  Agree with the unnecessary stuff, but most of the music was just fantastic.  I'll watch this one again.

Deadwood - The Movie

Not bad.

Not bad is disappointing for that.  Another thing to watch when FKG is out of town later this summer

Not bad.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, but it should have been 8 hours instead of 2. It tried to cram too much plot into two hours. Still, the dialog was as fine as ever.

Sad to read about David Milch's Alzheimers.

The Eyes of Orson Welles

Very well done and a different style of biopic. I didn't realize he was such an artist (sketches).

Yesterday.  Fun movie.  

We really enjoyed it .  Some holes in the plot and a typical rom-com but an interesting premise and more laughs than expected.  And if you like the Beatles, or ever doubted their genius as song-writers, you will want to see it.

Spiderman: Far From Home

Good summer flick; I really liked Homecoming, and I would put this about a half notch below that one.

The Amazing Spiderman 2 - got the BD ver. on Apknite and watch it once a month.

Superhero movies are about the only ones I can enjoy (as of recently).

However, I’m not watching the new Spiderman films. I mainly only watch The Amazing Spiderman films because Andrew Garfield is hot.

I mean, Tom Holland is hot too, but he always looks like he has mouthwash in his mouth but refuses to spit.
