Saw that Alice in Wonderland remake...it started with promise, but turned into a pretty bland kids film.

Also re-watched 10 Cloverfield Lane.  I kept thinking "wow, this is great, why didn't I care much for this?".  Then the ending came and I was like "...oh yeah".  Even with the lame ending, John Goodman's performance and the suspense make it well worth watching.

Same w/both.  I thought 10 Cloverfield was really good for the first 75 minutes or so - the last 15 minutes definitely put a stain on it.

I appreciated the ending as a concept, but the execution was terrible.  It was like a David Fincher psychological thriller for the majority of the movie, then randomly turned into a Michael Bay action film right at the end.

Watched The Greatest Showman yesterday. Itís thoroughly predictable and mediocre but I thought the soundtrack was really well done overall, and Hugh Jackman provides much heart. Probably a C.

Yep - I think I gave it a 5.5/10 - something like that.  Average overall.  Thought it started pretty strong then leveled off pretty quickly thereafter.

What did you think of La La Land? The songwriters of all the songs there worked on this film's songs, and they've maintained consistent output in that field in my opinion.

I liked La La Land.  I didn't think it was a "great" film.  I gave it a 7/10.  I really thought the ending was strong and the overall movie was solid, but it wasn't an instant classic imo.

Wholeheartedly agree. La La Land has an excellent ending. Chazelle knows how to end his films.

As a screenwriter - I didn't care much for the ending of 10 Cloverfield Lane.  Whether or not that was his fault I have NO idea, but if he was largely involved in the final act once she gets out of the house, I was pretty unimpressed.

I think it's a fair bet that the ending was on Abrams.

Could be.  Unless it was written that way by Chazelle.

The more I think about La La Land, the more I appreciate the fact that the characters pursued their dreams at the expense of their relationship. That's not a message you typically see in films. Doing what you love is just as important as being with someone you love. They chose the former, and the movie doesn't vilify them for it.

Songs hold up, too. I'm still playing them on piano to this day. Great chord structure in that opening piece.

Lady Bird holds up really well. Tracy Lettsís performance is so underrated in the film.

I also watched Mary and the Witch's Flower, from the spiritual successor studio to Ghibli. Itís relatively diet Ghibli but it goes far once it finds its stride. Probably a B.

Weird, I just rewatched this again too. I'm more convinced than ever that its universality is a strength rather than a weakness. Plus it feels very genuine regardless.
