Just got done watching Kubo and the Two Strings. Loved it. It was a very nice movie. Loved the acting, the cinematography and the artwork. 8/10

Oceans 8 - overall just kinda cute 5/10; I generally don't like movies that lionize criminality without some justification for the crime (as in Les Miserables or original Death Wish). These were just evil greedy women - bleah. Also jewels, especially well-known ones, have become about the least stealworthy things out there, as they are all x-ray etched internally and easily traceable when resold.

A Quiet Place - really well made. if you accept all the premises, then it is really good. 8/10. Loses points for something that really annoys me - in the end
Spoiler: show
they find these auditory superpredators can be shot! Well, why did no one in the whole US of A think of THAT before!?!? Yeah, we have no one who would shoot creatures trying to slaughter everyone! The military and police must have tried to negotiate :eyeroll: And another thing - auditory hunters would be really overwhelmed with all the sound sources in cities, wouldn't they?

Where are they now? (part 42)
(an occasional series following wizardry after the Second Voldemort War)
Rubeus Hagrid continued as groundskeeper and Professor of Magical Beasts.

Here he is on a summer vacation trip to the Canary Islands with Fluffy, his second favorite dog.

Re: Rate / Review the Last Film you've seen v.3

The superpredators can be shot when their ears are exposed or when they lose orientation. If you shoot at them, even with tank shells, the outer armor repels it. Why exactly the sound waves from firing guns don't bother them is a mystery, though.

Kubo and the Two Strings is gorgeous animation, a stellar cast, and about 3/4 of an excellent movie. But the ending is just...resolution (as it pertains to the grandfather) is just ruinous.

ETA--And I loved Ocean's 8. Not as strong as the Ocean's 11 remake, but certainly the equal of the sequels with a stellar cast. And I thought most of the crew was both entertaining and sympathetic.

I finally made it!

No worries. No spoilers here.
