Rewatched The Terminator for the first time a very long time. Holy crap, the soundtrack is awful.

Soundtrack or music score?

The score is a legendary classic of the 80s. I get that it sounds lo-if but given the context of the time and budget, it’s brilliant, and very memorable. Brad Fiedel is one of the more underrated movie composers and a genius on the synthesizer.

Score I guess. Just full on cheese-ball 80s synth stuff, which has always done nothing for me.

The move is great, yes!

Part of the greatness of The Terminator is that you can tell it was made on a pretty small budget, yet had high aspirations.  A couple shots in the factory towards the end, where she's being "chased" by a stop-motion endoskeleton obviously played on a screen in the background are genuinely cringeworthy.  I just chuckle and let it remind me that it was just a low-budget sci-fi movie at the time.  Bodybuilder guy as the "monster", a couple of relative unknowns for the leads.  No one expected it to become the iconic film that it is now.

The Farewell - Pretty good. Nice performance by the normally pretty obnoxious Akwafina (or however you spell it).

Arctic - For a movie with very little dialog, it drew me in very well. Nice visuals and performance by the lead actor.

I had never seen Observe & Report until this weekend. The good points: Anna Faris being hot as usual. The bad points: Young, clean-shaven Seth Rogen is not as funny as hairier Seth Rogen, and wtf @ the drunk sex scene, that was super uncomfortable.

Love me some Rogen films because when they're good they're really damn good (Pineapple Express is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen and never gets old) - but this was a miss.

The very title made me curious so I googled and this seems like a movie right up my alley, will check it out.  :tup

Saw the new Lion King movie.

Gotta say.......very meh. I found myself enjoying the overall movie, but that's because it's just the same movie as the cartoon, which I loved.

As far as the voices go, the original is just so much better. Billie and Seth were great, as was John Oliver. Everyone else? Ranged from meh to worse.

Did not care for Donald Glover or Beyonce, and I love Donald Glover. Also Beyonce REALLY over sang everything and took me out of the movie. She was not a great decision outside of her pull at the BO.

As far as the tech goes, I still prefer the cartoon. Clearly this is a major achievement in animation, but it just didn't work for me. The lions have 0 emotional expression and it's just odd. Because they're talking and singing and stuff, it takes me out of the idea of seeing real animals. Instead, I'm just seeing a very new form of animation that doesn't deliver what the cartoon did.

Over all, eh. Cartoon is much better. This had good moments, and luckily the fact that it's 97% identical to the original, means I enjoy the story aspect, but most of the voice acting wasn't very interesting and the animation just didn't do it for me this time.

Agreed. It's clear that much of the cast was solely chosen for market value. "Can You Feel the Love" was actively ear-grating, and "Be Prepared" was such a massive disappointment.

Saw “The end of the Tour” yesterday with Jason Segel. Interesting character for sure. Here is my favorite quote from the movie.

Quote
Yes, you're performing muscular movements with your hand as you're jerking off. But what you're really doing, I think, is you're running a movie in your head. You're having a fantasy relationship with somebody who is not real... strictly to stimulate a neurological response. So as the Internet grows in the next 10, 15 years... and virtual reality pornography becomes a reality, we're gonna have to develop some real machinery inside our guts... to turn off pure, unalloyed pleasure. Or, I don't know about you, I'm gonna have to leave the planet. 'Cause the technology is just gonna get better and better. And it's gonna get easier and easier... and more and more convenient and more and more pleasurable... to sit alone with images on a screen... given to us by people who do not love us but want our money. And that's fine in low doses, but if it's the basic main staple of your diet, you're gonna die.
