The Great Wall
Not a great flick but not as bad as I thought the reviews made it out to be. It definitely had some cheese going on, overall not what I consider bad for a monster movie. I might not bother watching it again but I enjoyed watching it well enough once.

The Hitman's Bodyguard
Ryan Renolds and Samuel L. Jackson. Action flick with plenty of everything you'd expect from this type of a movie with these two actors in it. I would watch this one again if it were on, good stuff.

I'm kinda interested in "Great Wall"- partly because it has Matt Damon, even though he seems strangely out of place in this kind of flick. I also like Ryan Reynolds a lot, so might look into catching "The Hit Man's Bodyguard".

Speaking of Ryan Reynolds, has anyone seen "R.I.P.D." with him and Jeff Bridges? It's a pretty decent sci-fi comedy zombie flick that I ran across in the Wal-mart bargain bin...

I totally forgot about RIPD when it came out, I never did watch it. I need to look it up and see if I can find it on one of the streaming sites. Thanks for the reminder Wes.

We saw Thor 3/Ragnarok yesterday, and it was OK, especially going in with very low expectations. The best part of Thor 3 was the preview for Star Wars The Last Jedi ;)

Orient Express does look interesting, be curious to hear what you think, James.

I'm still hoping to rewatch the original theatrical release (with voiceover) of Blade Runner, and then to see BR 2049 again before it leaves theatres, but I'm not sure the timing's going to work out....

Well... maybe next time. Just couldn't get motivated to do much except chill with all the time I've put in at the theater over the last 6 weeks. Still interested!

Might not win any awards, but the trailer got a few chuckles out of me so I'll watch it sometime this weekend.
