Crud...

 

Wanted to see Kubo and the Two Strings, and it's already not shown in the local theaters anymore. But the Secret Life of Pets (10th week) and Ice Age:Collision Course (8th week) still are?

 

Which is why I was telling everyone to go see it!!!

 

I saw it  week or so ago. It was awesome, but it seems that it just isn't making much money. I also saw secret life of pets a while ago. It was ok.

The fact that Kubo is an animated movie that doesn't have Disney's name attached to it hurts it, I think.  The combination of a PG rating and it being animated I think throws a lot of people off.

I and a very large number of people who love Laika films couldn't bear to watch it because the director wouldn't consider casting an Asian person as Kubo.

The Magnificent Seven was a fun movie, and I'd recommend it to fans of Westerns.  A bit more black and white than I was expecting, and some characters weren't developed much, but it is understandable given time constraints.  Someday I need to watch the one made in 1960 so I can better understand the critics' complaints.

I took elder spawn to see Kubo tonight.  We loved it. 

Papercrafting may be my new favorite superpower. I would love to tell stories with it.  Flying would only be a secondary use.

or as in Read Or Die (only other time I have seen paper crafting) blocking bullets or other attacks. 

 

I was trying to explain to wifey why the original Magnificent Seven was such a good movie.  normally I hate westerns , but M7 wasn't a western,

it was a movie about an adventuring party. They were all specialized fighters or Fighter/Thieves with a variety of kits/prestige classes/sub classes. 

They chose to take a stand, to be heroes, and some died.   I really should watch RAN one of these days, But it does not seem to be stream-able.

It rained a lot here this weekend so the son and I had time to veg out and watched all four Lethal Weapon movies. Good times!

 

I also watched Nice Guys with the wife. It was an alright movie, but not nearly funny as the commercials made it out to be. Mostly b/c they'd already spoiled all of the jokes in the trailers.

Ended up seeing The Magnificent Seven.  Overall an enjoyable movie.  Some characters were featured more prominently.  A lot of bullets were fired.  Like... really... a LOT!

Definitely a bit more actiony than I remember the original being (and not as gritty), but was actually pretty good to see on the big screen for matinee pricing.
