I don't watch too many movies anymore but on a recent plane ride I rewatched Inception. I had seen it in the theater when it first came out and really enjoyed it but had forgotten how good it was.
Inception?! On a plane ride? It must have been an International flight considering how long that movie is. lol
Not quite but it was Philly to L.A. nonstop so I figured I had the time. On the way back just the other day I watched The Greenbook because I heard it had won some Oscars. I probably wouldn't have heard of it otherwise. That was also good. It's not a role I would have pictured Viggo Mortenson in.

Watching Baywatch on Amazon at the moment. It's ok for a "Pop Corn Entertainment" movie to pass the time.

I watched Bullitt with Steve McQueen the other night. Still love that movie and the car chase is outstanding.
It was funny to see the Tag Heuer product placement as the out-of-reach for most luxury watch.

On HBO last night: The Bourne Supremacy.

That series, although a massive and at times, annoying derivation from Ludlum's books, was amazing, IMHO.

Damon looks so young, lol.

Upon my cousin's recommendation, my girlfriend made me watch The Greatest Showman. I am not into musicals and yet this reminded me yet again what an amazing talent Hugh Jackman is. I'd still rather watch Logan over this lol

This weekend the kids and I plan to watch "The Private Eyes" with Don Knotts and Tim Conway. I remember watching this in the Theater as a kid.
A copy appears to be online under Dailymotion.com split into 2 parts. Me personally will watch my copy on the t.v. with the kids and a big bucket of popcorn. It is one of the funniest movies I've ever watched. As a boy I was always partial to Hilda, "The Upstairs Maid" and Mistress Phyllis Morley.

Recently rewatched a couple movies I absolutely love. For the comedy side of things, Wanderlust is an insanely underrated movie, and absolutely hilarious. A little twisted, but so good.

I also had a chance to rewatch Snatch. Definitely in my top 5 all time movies. So effing good. Brad pitt as the pikey? Classic. One of the most quotable movies between friends who are in the know. Highly recommend.

Also, effing 5th element is one od the few movies I ALWAYS watch when I see it on.

My coworkers have a habit of leaving the lights off so they can see monitors better. I walk through their area and flip the lights on because I can’t stand it dark inside a building. I yell “Aziz, light!” I doubt any of them know why I say that.

Have you seen Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels?
That's Guy Ritchie's movie before Snatch.
Personally prefer it more and has an astounding soundtrack.

Took my son to watch Captain Marvel tonight. Overall it was pretty good. Lots of "Girl Power" oozing out all over the movie but that was the premise. I honestly think every back ground song was from Female Grunge bands in the 90's. Yes, I know the movie was set in the 1990's. The second half of the movie sped things along pretty good.

I've been told that Avengers End Game releasing April 26th is set at three hours long.


***PSA of the Day***

For those that want to watch "The Fifth Element" it is on SyFy next Wednesday the 13th twice that evening. And then again on the 21st on the same channel.

I had grown weary of all the superhero movies until I recently watched Infinity War on Netflix, which I thought was quite good. It's almost (but not quite) made me want to rewatch some of the previous movies to get more out of them. And now I'm looking forward to Endgame.

I used to watch a lot of action movies but now find myself gravitating much more towards movies with greater character development, and even slowly paced movies that are fascinating in their own right but I would never have sat through in years past. One movie I just watched again (I've watched it 4-5 times in the last year) is No Country for Old Men, which has become an all time favorite. Another incredibly slow paced movie that I also find compelling is The American.

And not a movie, but just binge rewatched Breaking Bad. What a great series.

Another flight, another movie. Actually 2 this time. American Airlines has a surprisingly good selection. I watched First Man this time. Liked it, didn't love it. I've never quite understood Ryan Gosling's status as a superstar/leading man. Maybe I haven't seen the right movies. He wears a Speedy and another Omega in it. Link below. Apparently he is a vintage watch geek in real life. I had just enough time left to watch Ferris Bueller. Hadn't seen it for a while and it didn't disappoint.

When it comes to Ryan Gosling, the only movie that I remember watching him in was "the nice guys". Pretty funny movie and worth the watch. That is my only reference, so I think he is great, just like the masses do!
