Good movie, but about a hideous man. I didn't know the story of Macdonald's prior to watching this and I really felt sorry for the brothers who owned the original restaurant. That guy who took it over was a sleazy little weasel. I spent most of the movie wishing harm on him!

Passengers (2016)

Not my genre, but I did watch it and remained interested in seeing how it would work out. By the end I was reminded again why I hate sci fi and blockbusters.
Not my two favorite actors by a long shot. He's a wooden plank and she's mildly attractive and that's about it. The end had me rolling my eyes and I don't mind a romance story usually.
Just your standard disaster on an a spaceship story. I won't be in a hurry to watch another.

Intimacy (2001)

Dark, but good.
I had read the book which shares the name, but it seems they have mixed a few stories together as I am sure that one was just about a rat husband abandoning his wife and kids. He wasn't all that likeable in the book, though it was well written. Again, he's not overly likeable, but the movie gives him a little more depth and interest. Not that his actions are explained here either.
Clare was more relatable and sympathetic. Still not exactly a nice person, but you could see she was going through something. As is the male lead, I guess. As with the book, I felt the underlying theme is awareness of mortality and fear of missing out. It's not overt, but that's what I got the sense of with these two characters. Both made poor choices with spouses (not that there seems to be anything badly wrong with either, but they were just not a good fit for this pair). Both felt depressed and trapped. Both made yet another poor choice searching for something elusive in their lives. Honestly I think being middle aged helps you to "get" these characters. I'm sure in my 20's I'd have watched this and thought the pair of them were horrible. I still can't condone their behavior, but I find I can see where it stems from and as such this was a decent watch for me. I wouldn't recommend it for all.

Okay, so it's not as good as the original and some of it goes too far on shock value (like the horrible ending), but the characters are still good and I enjoyed watching it.

Quite funny. Especially the earlier parts of the film.
