    Highwaymen.

    I loved it early on. By the end I was less happy.

    Nothing wrong with it. This isn't a complaint. But I was no longer transported.

    So I watched Bonny and Clyde for contrast/comparison. Fast forwarded a lot.

    Then I went back to Highwaymen, watched the parts I liked, the, "We're putting the band back together," part.

    These bits:

    1. From when we first see Keven Costner until his wife watches him drive away.
    2. From the establishing shot on Woody Harrelson's house until Costner tells him to get in the car.

    Then I called my wife and re-watched that much with her. It's fine movie making.

    That much of this movie ... is one of my favorite movies.

    Damn, that looks good! Great cinematography! Can't wait to see it! I've seen "Bonnie and Clyde", and this is better.

    In April 1945, the Allies are making their final push in the European theater. A battle-hardened Army sergeant named Don "Wardaddy" Collier (Brad Pitt), leading a Sherman tank and a five-man crew, undertakes a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Hopelessly outnumbered, outgunned and saddled with an inexperienced soldier (Logan Lerman) in their midst, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds as they move to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

    rated 8/10

    Deadpool 2 - I think I stand in the minority thinking that the sequel was better than the original, of which I liked as well. The movie managed to have a solidly cohesive plot, completely twisted manner of telling it, and the ultimate conclusion was pretty clean. The film does go over the line a few times, but not to the point of unchecked gratuitousness. 3 of 4

    Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, 7/10; Stars a lot of familiar names. The plot is not important or even relevant, it's a fun listen to Abba's catalog of music.

    Thanks for posting that. I notice that at one point it differs from what is actually in the movie.



    In the trailer, Costner says, "You're not even packed," and Harrelson holds up his (ancient) toothbrush.

    In the actual movie, they cut Costner's line. They use the same footage of Harrelson, but they digitally remove the toothbrush.

    The Adventures Of Priscilla Queen Of The Desert .

    The plot follows two drag queens played by Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce and a transgender woman, played by Terence Stamp, as they journey across the Australian Outback from Sydney to Alice Springs in a tour bus that they have named "Priscilla", along the way encountering various groups and individuals.

    6/10

    That reminds me of the movie Australia starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman.

    With the globe on the brink of World War II, Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman) travels from Britain to Australia to inspect a cattle ranch she inherited. Reluctantly joining forces with a rugged local known as the Drover (Hugh Jackman), she sets out on a cattle drive across hundreds of miles of harsh terrain to save her ranch. But when they finally reach the town of Darwin, they must contend with the same Japanese bombers that just rained death upon Pearl Harbor.
    Initial release: 26 November 2008 (USA)
    Director: Baz Luhrmann
    Box office: 211.3 million USD
    Budget: 130 million USD

    4.5/10 It's about 1.5 hours too long.
