Regarded, by some, as a film without legs. While it had the 4th highest opening weekend box office gross, when all was said and done, it had earned only twice its opening weekend box office gross. Unlike "Star Wars : Episode 7 - the Force Awakens," which, while it had the highest opening weekend box office gross, it also earned 4 times that at the box office, when all was said and done. Thus, a film that was worth seeing once, and a film worth seeing more than once.

$188 million or the 5th highest opening weekend box office gross or what "Captain America : Civil War" earned that 1st weekend it opened. Now, we'll have to see whether it has legs. And it might, as its total international box office gross is now over $1 billion.

Rightly, DC has its defenders, and this is not to wish them ill, but . . .?! Why is Marvel, at this time, beating the crap out of DC at the box office? There's a story there, even if I am not sure what it is. Though, I can hazard it is because Marvel is . . .

(1) better action oriented.
(2) better cast.
(3) better written.

Though, help may be on the way. The rumor has it that the people who head DC's TV, where they have had some success, are to taken over the film division of DC, and maybe lighten up the films?
Which may be to the good, because the success or the lack thereof of "Batman versus Superman : Dawn of Justice" has raised questions about the viability of DC's upcoming, in 2017, "Wonder Woman" and "Justice League," and this year's "Suicide Squad." On the hand, with its so far success, "Captain America : Civil War" has created positive vibe for its upcoming Marvel films "Black Panther " and "Spiderman."

Oddly enough, ere I saw "Captain America : Civil War" in the theater, I saw the trailers for DC's "Suicide Squad" and Marvel's "Doctor Strange" back-to-back, and we know TAL (Trailers Always Lie), but . . .?! I got a more positive vibe from "Doctor Strange" than I did from "Suicide Squad." If only because the action scenes in 'Doctor Strange" (IMHO) had a more human touch. Though, the lack of the human element in the action. seems to me, is not unique to "Suicide Squad," for from the other films I saw at that time, the advances in SFX are pushing out the human element in action scenes, but . . .?!

We'll see what we'll see.

I had a strange one yesterday.

I found a newly discovered Stanley Kubrick film on DVD called Coffee.

NIGHT OF THE PUMPKIN - A bunch of naked girls get killed by a guy in a ridiculously bad pumpkin costume.  In between killings, they argue about atheism vs. faith and whether pumpkin dude is a demon or not.  Really, really bad . . . but somehow enjoyable, too.
3/5

L'IL QUINQUIN (2014): A big city detective with facial tic disorder comes to a remote French beach village to investigate a bizarre double murder---parts of the victims were found inside the bodies of cows---in this Bruno Dumont 4-part miniseries released as a 200 minute movie. Because of its quirky dark humor and strange-outsider-in-a-strange-town mystery plot, it's almost always dubbed "the French 'Twin Peaks,'" and it has many of that series strengths and weaknesses. It features fantastic acting and brilliant individual scenes, but the frustrating, enigmatic non-ending leaves things on a sour note. 3.5/5.

Ryan Gosling (aside from his performance in Lars and the Real Girl). Hate a lot of stuff he's done.

I usually don't like Sandler movies nowadays but he has been in some movies I kind of dig (Pixels, Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, Happy Gilmore, a few others).

Will Ferrell really annoys me but he's OK in a handful of movies (Lego Movie, Austin Powers films).


Will Ferrell in Austin Powers movies? I cant recall him in those-huh.

I give it four years before you gouge out your bosses eyes with your thumbs!

[Congrats! I didn't know there was a 'supervillain laser' job out there.]

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
