Black's Game - Icelandic crime thriller about the rise of the drug underworld in Reykjavik, late 1990's. Brutal and violent, indeed. Not a bad film if a bit gloomy and a little too reliant on the sex-drugs-rock & roll tropes.

Brimstone - This is what happens when backwards people let just ANY psychopath be their preacher. If anything can go wrong, it definitely will. Pretty brutal film with Guy Pearce and Dakota Fanning. Worth seeing if only as a precautionary tale.

Flu - Killer flu like the coronavirus running amok in South Korea. The movie started out well then slowly became a load of tripe as the director piled on the mushy background strings in spades as well as the unnecessary crocodile tears.

Blue streak
wow, it was bad



Jaws
hadn't seen it for a long while, was very pleasantly surprised by how well it still held up. It didn't feel outdated

I saw The Irishman while recuperating from hernia surgery. Not sure if I would have seen it otherwise.

Didn't break any new ground as a mobster movie, but I appreciated the strong tie-in with history.

Brightburn - Was much better than I thought. Since the lead was a kid, I thought it'd be some weak PG or PG-13 fluff. It wasn't. It was an R flick with a strong and intense violent streak with a good story - just the way I like it.

I just saw that last night, as that was my Valentine's Day present to my wife. Great movie.

It opened well, but the middle fell flat. I felt the story became less engaging as it went along.

I wanted to like its entertaining factor, but the muddled delivery and pacing of the story stopped me from doing this.

There was great acting chemistry between M and H, but (it could be the nostalgia talking), it made me want to watch the first Men In Black film again.

Though saying that, I wasn't too keen on the 2nd or 3rd film in the franchise either.
