Marriage StoryReview

"They're saying this is for Adam Driver what Kramer vs Kramer was for Dustin Hoffman.More about him than about her.  Scarlett,to me,is the open question.By now it's Driver vs Phoenix for best actor."- Melchiades -Andrew

"Mini-shutout to Alda,whom I loved and thought did absolute wonders in his what,3 or 4 scenes.Great review!"-Alex

"Parasite"explodes --what did you see over the weekend?

What did you see over the weekend?I went toPain & Gloryfor a second time and as with all Pedro Almodóvar movies,the second viewing is richer than the first.But the big story of the weekend was Bong Joon-ho'sParasite.EVERY SCREENING in NYC was sold out by Friday morning.It must have also been crowded in Los Angeles because it achieved the highest per screen average of the entire year,and the best sinceLa La Land(2016) and we all know what happened toLa La Land.Not thatParasiteis going to earn $151 million in US release alone and win 6 Oscars but,亚博主页still,what a feat for its opening weekend.

numbers on this chart are pulled fromboxofficemojo.

That's all twelve movies still in wide release and their counterparts in the platforming world (though Brittany Runs a Marathon had a brief fling with being a wide release,but didn't quite crossover).

Jokerhad a very strong second weekend (the best second weekend of a wide release ever in October) butLucy in the Skyhad a disastrous one,expanding to 198 theaters but with a perfect screen average that was less than $400.  The astronaut drama will go down as one of the year's big disasters.

Us (second viewing) and First Reformed (second viewing).

I hate it when SPC gets a foreign film (or really any film) because that means it probably won't open in my city,but I'm hopeful that Pain and Glory comes here.Neon is impressing me like A24 does.

First-timers inNight School(it's OK),Happy Death Day 2U(I liked it!),Bad Times at the El Royale (fucking awesome),and Joker(intense and eerie) along with re-watches ofIn the Mood for Loveand2 Fast 2 Furious.

Saw Downton Abby and absolutely loved it.If you had not seen the TV series for the 7 or 8 seasons,you would have been totally lost as to the relationships,etc.

The many threads to the story were so beautifully answered.A great ending to a great series!
