Pickings is a stylized noir, western, family, mafia, revenge play starring Elyse Bernard and Katie Vincent as a mother and daughter running a small time bar in Detroit while keeping their Kentucky roots. They run afoul of the local mafia and things go sideways very quickly, but the mafiosos don't exactly know what they got into messing with these Dames.
The film was a lot of fun. The actresses and actors (notable mentions to Uncle Boone, Hollywood, and the Don Leo) were wonderful with a great stylization to the proceedings. The score was fantastic and probably my favorite part (especially noted first time Uncle Boone walks on the scene). I had some minor quibbles with a few of the edits, but nothing that took away from my overall enjoyment nor detracted from the pacing and story. Go see it!
The Disaster Artist is everything you expect and could want from a movie about the behind the scenes story of both the making of The Room and how it even came to exist, and more. It is an incredibly deft handling of some very unexplainable material and, unfortunately, as someone who lovingly describes the book as something you have to put down repeatedly because the cringe is so strong, watching it in a theater, there is no escape. It's all there. Everything. From when Greg and Tommy met at the acting class to Greg's mother to the casting of the movie to the Chris R scene to Tommy going ****ing insane... it's all there. IT's there. It's the book, it's the movie, it's their lives, it's... it's amazing. Watch it.
Lived up to the hype and more. Absolutely wonderful, touching, heartfelt, funny funny movie. I laughed so much during this.
Not only did I go expecting worse than I got, I never imagined I'd leave with such a big smile on my face. The movie was a lot more fun than the trailers made it out to be, and the characters were really, really good. Best Power Rangers movie (admittedly, not a high bar by any stretch of the imagination) and better than a lot of Power Rangers seasons.
As a huge fan of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, I was massively disappointed by how bad Megaforce was. I came out of this feeling like I saw my Megaforce.
I also want to add that the movie would not nearly have been as good without a family that sat behind us, and there was this kid in a "Hustle Loyalty Respect" shirt who just completely marked out for the Power Rangers towards the end. He was there with every big action scene, every quick joke, every moment towards the end. Kids can be a pain, I know, but this kid brought the feeeels. He brought me back to childhood and how I felt every time I watched an episode of Power Rangers or when Wargreymon in Digimon would do something awesome. He reminded me what it's like to be a kid watching this and it felt really good to just drop out and believe in good vs. evil.
