I watched probably the dumbest movie ever made yesterday (San Andreas).  It was so bad it actually made me hate myself even more just for wasting two hours of what little time I have left.

I’m fine with popcorn movies.  I can suspend my disbelief with the best of ‘em.  But everything about it was horrendous.  The action and CGI were jokes.  The acting was laughable (despite having some Oscar-winning talent) and the script was so cringe-worthy, I actually laughed out loud several times during “dramatic” scenes.

Amazingly enough, it was so implausible and insulting to anyone with an IQ over 50, I actually enjoyed the hell out of it.  It was like grudge-farging your girl’s roommate after she cheats on you.  Sure, you feel guilty afterward, but during?  Sure, why not? 

Quality:  F -

Would I watch it again:  A+

Made the kids watch Just Mercy tonight.  A little melodramatic at times, but overall it's a poignant look at the Walter McMillan case in Alabama.

It's free to rent on Amazon Prime for the rest of the month if you haven't seen it yet.

Agreed.

I really enjoyed it. The Shelby doc on Netflix is great as well and helps fill in some stuff from the movie.

LeMans is a better movie about a similar subject.  Damon played himself and Bale disappears into the role like he always does, so it wasn’t bad or anything.  The wife was kinda hot.  The cars were cool.  I liked the driving bits.  The writing was awful.  Still, not the worst two hours Ive ever spent.

Solid B-, I guess.

If you don’t appreciate or have an interest in cars I completely understand not liking it. I had no idea it was nominated for best picture because I don’t follow that stuff. I also had no idea that story existed so the unfamiliarity of it made it much more intriguing.

Evidently they’re rebooting Star Wars and pretending the final three movies aren’t part of canon.

Okay, so we were handcuffed by directors butchering each other's work, studio meddling, and China not wanting a black guy as a hero, but this time it'll be different! We won't hire the black guy!
