    Seems to be doing fine. It cost about $80 million to make and has already pulled in over $80 million so it turned a profit the first week. It's a lesser known franchise, so it's not going to do the big superhero numbers, but it seems to be doing well for what it is.
    They have to share that $80 million. They need around double that to break even, maybe more.

    I've read that they don't consider a movie profitable until it's made four times the cost of making it. Because, as a for instance, the cost of making the film doesn't include the cost of advertising it.

    But if they made up the cost in the first week, they should make up four times the cost before long.

    Lucy 2014 Missed this one, just watched it. Scarlett Johnson, Morgan Freeman. Just enough science to make the fiction work. Then it takes off. 8/10. Ignore the implausible movement by the gangsters and their firearms. The rest is cool.

    A movie you can watch in just under 12 minutes. I came across this channel a little over a year ago. Short films. Short science fiction films. They're not all great, but some of them are very good.

    Something or other about a school reunion. American Reunion. Old friends return to their hometown, after a more than a decade to attend their high school reunion. Having decided to spend the weekend together.

    5/10

    Yeah La Femme Nikita... I mean The Fifth Element... I mean Lucy was pretty good.

    I was going to say, it'd be nice if Besson had a different protagonist, but remembered he did Leon and created The Transporter guy.

    Fargo for the third or fourth time. Starring the much underrated William H Macy.

    en.wikipedia.org › wiki › Fargo_(film)
    Fargo (film) - Wikipedia
    Fargo is a 1996 black comedy thriller film written and produced by Joel and Ethan Coen and solely directed by Joel Coen. Frances McDormand stars as Marge Gunderson, a pregnant Minnesota police chief investigating roadside homicides that ensue after a desperate car salesman (William H. Macy] arranges for the kidnapping of his wife so he can hold her for a million dollar ransom. Thing's go from bad to worse when the plan falls flat as a pizza.

    At least...9/10

    Fast And Furious - Hobbs And Shaw

    The first F&F movie I've actually enjoyed. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham join forces to save the world from a deadly virus a mad organization personified by Idris Elba wants to release upon the world. Johnson and Statham's characters hate each other and their rivalry fuels a lot of humor and downright funny scenes. Some of the action is a little over the top but much less than the totally impossible that you usually see in an F&F movie. Overall I give it a 7.5/10.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Is this possibly one of the best ever of the Bond movies, along with Dr No?

    from Russia With Love. [1963] starring the best Bond of them all Sean Connery.

    James is ordered to steal a Soviet decoding device from the Russian Embassy in Istanbul.

    9/10. 8.5/10 for the latter.

    No Country for old Men: 8/10 An oldie from 2007, but now a classic. Great performances and unusual ending. Worth a 2nd watch or maybe a 3rd.
