2019 Dino Bone Oscar Picks

Ya know, before I got into my picks, I was planning on throwing in some quick hit movie reviews to this post when I realized something…  I have literally seen zero movies in theaters from 2019!

I’ve been to the movie theater only twice since the new year and we saw Free Solo and Aquaman, which both came out last year.  I recently rented Bohemian Rhapsody, and that was, uh, ya know, a music biopic.  You can’t deny that.  I think the only movies I’ve seen that were actually released in 2019 were those Fyre Festival docs on Netflix/Hulu.

Meanwhile, I check my Fandango app every week and I’ve actively avoided Escape Room, Alita Battle Angel, Glass, The Kid Who Would Be King, The Upside, Miss Bala, Lego Movie 2, Cold Pursuit, What Men Want, A Dog’s Way Home, Happy Death Day 2U, Velvet Buzzsaw, and Isn’t It Romantic.

…Not off to a great start, 2019.

So let’s remember a year that actually released some watchable movies, and do these picks.  I didn’t do too good last year and tried to go with logic a bunch of times, maybe I’ll try to go with my gut this time.  And I haven’t eaten lunch yet, so my gut is hungry for victory.  Victory and pulled pork sandwiches.

This year I’ll try something new and also give my second guess choices, so I can look back and see how many times I should have actually went with my gut.

I Watched Some Movies in 2018: A 2018 List of Movies That I Watched

Despite life’s best efforts, I still managed to watch a bunch of movies this year.  Probably not as many as I did last year, and I’ll most likely watch even less next year (I’ve HEARD that having a baby can impede your social life).  So I’ll keep this “brief”, because 1) I don’t even know who will read this anymore, and 2) I’d kind of rather be spending my time right now playing Spider-Man.  Those rooftop thugs aren’t going to kill themselves!  Let’s do this, ya clydesdales!

My MINDBLOWING Notes on the Movies I’ve Watched in 2018 (So Far)

I’ve now seen enough movies in 2018 to dump out a bunch of thoughts on them.  Some of them are even from 2017, but I rented them in 2018.  That still counts in my book!
Here’s five thoughts (each) on a bunch of recent movies I’ve seen.  They are in no particular order other than the order in which they popped up in my brain while writing this.  Such thoughtful planning for this post…  You’re welcome!

R8in’ the F8: The 10 Most Furiously Gr8 Things About The Fate Of The Furious

Pop on your best sleeveless shirt and then pop on your best sleeveless tactical armor, and while you’re at it, pop in the finest lime wedge into that Corona you’re drinking, brother!  I saw Fate of the Furious, aka F8 0f th3 Fur10u5, aka [shows you tattoo of a stone Jesus cross with monster truck wheels] over the weekend, and I have a comprehensive list of all the best things about this movie.

Here’s Some Movie Reviews: One You Maybe Watched and Three You Probably Didn’t

With World War III on the horizon, please take some time to do what’s important, like reading some short movie reviews of some stuff you probably didn’t bother to watch.  Heck, I saw these movies all within the last couple of weeks, and two of the four of them are already out of theaters.

I better crank these out, because if I had an editor, they’d be chewing me out big time for my lack of writing production around here.  This is only my sixth post of the year, and I don’t think I’ve written a post focused on just a single movie in probably 8 months.  I don’t deserve the paycheck I get from this site, to be honest with you, folks.  I don’t deserve it, and I also don’t receive one, so it all works out.  What, get to the reviews?  Fine.

Cash Grab February: Movie Reviews

00-rings-header

February has passed by and I’ve only had time to gather another whole month’s worth of movies into one post.  But what’s weird about this month’s crop?  Well, I saw seven movies, and four of them were sequels.  Another “original” one seemed like a cheap money-making scheme.  So I thought this month I’d address whether or not these were genuine attempts to make films, or just studio’s attempts to print money?
