  1. Anna is a better version of Atomic Blonde (and Red Sparrow).
  2. The two above are for the same film, and no, it's not Blade Runner. (Hint: Phoenix is the name of a character.)

    The Dead Don't Die

    I loved it, although to be honest I've loved nearly every Jarmusch film I've seen. https://catholiccinephile.wordpress.com/2019/06/19/the-dead-dont-die/

    Rocketman

    Thanks, Andrew, and thanks for the catch. I changed it to "recovery group," since it's definitely not clear what type of group therapy it is.
  5. Is this it? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6547170/ These are both written from the perspective of the villain, not the protagonist.

    Rocketman

    I liked this substantially more than Bohemian Rhapsody, although it gets bogged down by some of the same narrative cliches, just not nearly as severely. I thought the incorporation of songs as a jukebox musical worked quite well and mostly made up for those flaws. My full review: https://catholiccinephile.wordpress.com/2019/06/08/rocketman/
  7. For the first half of Ma, I thought it was a better version of Greta. But after it finished, I think Greta is the better version of Ma. They both suffer from serious flaws, just very different ones, so I'm not sure which one I liked less.
  8. Nope, although that's a closer guess than Late Night, chronologically speaking. Here's another hint: Surprise birthday gift Helps failing actor find his Captive audience.
  9. It is a recent film, but not that recent.
  10. The phoenix rises, And prison is transformed to The rain on the roof.
  11. I spelled Madadayo with two a's when I compiled the list of nominees, because that's what IMDB had listed, but the DVD box I rented afterward spelled it with one a, so I think you're both right that that's the correct spelling.
  12. Unless my memory is really wrong, after everyone comes back, when Hawkeye is reunited with his family at the end, he embraces two kids who are both young adults, which is substantially older than his kids were in the first scene.
  13. I think this is the article you're referring to: https://screenrant.com/avengers-endgame-ending-implications-bad-thanos-snap/
  14. Continuing Jeff's point that time travel ruins storytelling, this just dawned on me. If Gamora cannot be brought back by the stones because Thanos killed her to obtain the soul stone, but 2014 Gamora can travel forward in time in order to be around for Guardians 3 without undoing the events of Guardians 1 and 2, then shouldn't it be possible to go back and get Tony and Natasha and still have them around the same way? So their deaths are really meaningless.
