@@ -8,8 +8,62 @@ mysterious without trying too hard. The visuals, particularly towards the end,
got me excited about what people could be doing with digital effects.
Strikingly similar to "Stalker".
+Crazy Rich Asians (2018)
+There were a few fun scenes, and well acted/produced, but there was too much
+materialism and brand placement for my taste. Felt like more of a "coming out"
+for Asian elites than Asian-Americans write large, but the specific sensitivity
+to the American-born Asian/Chinese experience w/r/t old-country power was
Sorry to Bother You (2018)
Loved her t-shirts. Loved the "upper floor" business vibe.
+Roma (2018)
+Very good. Got to see at the Castro theater with Lucy.
+(that Orson Wells thing at Roxie)
+Ugh, really didn't enjoy watching this, and doesn't feel like I was able to
+pluck out enough nutritional value for it to be worth it. At the same time,
+pretty memorable and entirely self-aware. The film-within-a-film was spot-on
+for weird 70s stuff like Holy Mountain or even Clockwork Orange. A lot of the
+cuts reminded me of the original Prisoner TV show.
+I would take 8 1/2 over this film in a heartbeat.
+Infernal Affairs II
+Saw it on the plane and don't remember much, which was a losss.
+Die Hard
+Saw it on the plane and didn't need to remember any details, which is great.
+Has become hip as an homage to building infrastructure, and I did like that
+Sicario: Day of the Soldado
+Can't say it's a great film, but I drink up the dark moodiness and soundtrack
+like sugar water. Not as good as the first film, but only because the mood only
+goes so far, and the plot/characters are stretched thin. Liked it better than I
+expected though.
+What Happened To Monday
+Watched so many films on that flight!
+Acting was decent, but gimmicky. Overall, meh, even for an in-flight watch.
+One-child policy plot and twist was horrible. Wished I was watching Children of
+Men (the opposite problem) the whole time.
