    I've a bad feeling about this. I genuinely do like liking what everyone else likes.

    There's a lot to like, the pumped up running time is not one of those things.

    I just got to meet - better not to use names - the guy who won an Oscar for Bridge of Spies. That's now ranked above the time at work I got to meet Shirley from Eastenders or the boy from About a Boy.

    I got chucked out of Liquid in 2001 for making a Cheeky Girl cry.

    GOTG2 - A. Maybe my favorite marvel movie.

    The Mummy (Tom Cruise) - D....Universal decided the only way to avoid their universe being off from a tone perspective is to use any and all tone a movie can have it in it all at once. Genuine popcorn flick comedy spots in a film that also features a baby decapitation.

    *****.

    I'm glad I'm not alone on how much I liked the new Guardians.

    This is the most I've wanted to see The Mummy since I learned of its existence - i.e. still not very much.

    I've seen it 3 times now. It's so boring but I love it. Like The Greasy Strangler.

    But I do think "I have enough free time to watch Blade Runner 2049 three times" is quite the statement.

    I'm having a not insignificant amount of existential anxiety about seeing Blade Runner 2049 and you guys aren't helping.

    You'll want to carve out a day and watch it eight times to truly appreciate its majesty.

    Or just watch Her instead.

    So I was just planning on going to see it once in IMAX, so you're making it worse.

    If you want to see it as the director - and cinematographer - intended, don't watch it in IMAX. There aren't many people that don't think it's a very pretty movie. You're a film nerd, you pretend to care about this shit as much as I do.

    I thought that Blade Runner 2049 told a compelling story in a really interesting world.

    That's about the length of it. Worth seeing, bring a strong bladder and be ready to be bored here and there.

    If you all you want is to watch Ryan Gosling walk around looking vaguely perplexed then this is the movie you've been waiting for.

    It's not like there aren't shorter movies with Ryan Gosling walking around looking vaguely perplexed. It's like you're pretending Drive and Only God Forgives didn't happen

    Wonder Woman - A-

    Outside of the willfully silly action segments, absolutely tremendous

    Pirates Of the Caribbean (the new one) - C+ small scope but perfectly acceptable. Captain Salazar was awesome. Def has my vote for Villian of the year at the MTV movie awards
