    I get nostalgic for times long before I was born.

    2010 (1984, Peter Hyams)

    Man, this really didn’t age well. Almost everything predictive about it is dramatically wrong.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017, Martin McDonagh)

    The acting, directing, cinematography – most everything about this movie was ace. But I wasn’t really happy with the horrible racist people being redeemed. It felt like the wrong year for that.

    The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018, Joel Coen, Ethan Coen)

    This was loads of fun. Anthologies are generally hit and miss, but I liked every one of these old-timey western stories. And Tom Waits as the old prospector was an absolute stunner.

    I keep wanting to call it The Ballad of Lester Scruggs though, because Foggy Mountain Boys.

    Logan Lucky (2017, Steven Soderbergh)

    Dumb people heist movies are a nice antidote to super-genius heist movies. Soderbergh does both well. This started out amazing but lost it’s way toward the end.

    Gaslight (1944, George Cukor)

    First time watching this classic for me. I’d been talking to the girls about the origins of the modern term “gaslighting” and realized I hadn’t seen the movie myself.
