Wonder Woman. It sucked. JK I freaking loved it, neat characters, story, development and pacing. Plus Gal Gadot is an absolutely stunning woman, so that helps.

I watched the Trolls movie on Netflix, just because it was there.

It was "okay". It could have patched a few things up - like why the Grundles thought their only happiness came from eating Trolls and why the Chef was so set on keeping it that way (and if the root of it was basically "communal dining = individual happiness", the Chef still wouldn't be out of a job; in fact, she'd be even more important). Branch's backstory wasn't very satisfying. Why just the grandma? Where's the rest of his family? Was she raising him?

But what I loved was how everything looked like it had been made of crafting material. That was pretty clever. Especially with how felted materials were replicated by CGI.

The "Cinderella Break" was kind of cute too.

(Also, wtf, Creek??? WTF?!)

Rewatched Clueless, love that movie.

Suicide Squad, it wasn't as bad as I feared (still subpar), had a couple of nice moments. Joker and Harley was edgelord galore so that was a bit disappointing. The scenes with Batman was more Batman-y then the entire BvS.

I try not to think about BvS because I like myself too much to do so.

I spent the last month watching nearly 50 Jackie Chan movies. 90% of these I saw for the first time. God damn, the man is a living legend. Crazy stuff, especially his movies from the 70's, 80's and early 90's when he was younger and did insane stunts.

I watched Moana on Netflix. A good movie. Loved The Rock as Maui. Wish they had a more decent Villain.

Awesome! I think I like Police Story the best.

Police Story 3: Supercop was the best of them all, although they were all good. Make sure you watch it in the original though, the english dub cut out too many scenes. I always try to watch Jackie Chan movies in the original language, besides the ones that were made for America like the Rush Hour series, etc.

I never expected to make it through 50 Jackie Chan movies, but I somehow did. Haven't watched his very most recent movies after 2013 or so, but they all got poor reviews so I'm not in a hurry.

Krampus

Had been waiting quite a while to see it show up on HBO or elsewhere. That is a very odd mix of elements and whatnot, and rather good.

I love Jackie Chan, and I try to watch a movie of his every once in a while and only marathon when they are a series. Even though I've been a fan since a teen there are still movies of his that I've yet to watch, including a few left from the golden years. 70s-80s.

His American stuff is not that bad, especially if you take into account that not only did hollywood not allow him to do stunts but he was already old by then to top himself. They're not his best work but they're underrated, especially when compared to his later Chinese movies, ugh have all been terrible. When Jackie said he'd be back to China to make movies since Hollywood sucked, it was like "awesome" but I've yet to see a new movie of his that i like.

I prefer to watch his movies dubbed, especially when Jackie dubs himself. I know they are cut but the stories are so silly that I can get bored, it can distract from the fights and in generally since growing up with the dubs Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee films just feel "right" when they're badly dubbed.

I still hope for Rush Hour 4 even if I didn't really enjoy 2/3 that much, the interaction between Tucker and Jackie is just too awesome.

Did you watch all of them? Including the two reboots they gave them? The "new" version of the mid 00's and another in 2013, both are reboots and have nothing to do with Police Story, nor do they feature any action like them or similar themes. I get Jackie Chan wanted to do more "dramatic" movies but these are terrible. I remember being so excited for a "new" Police Story...

Did you check out Supercop part 2? It's a spin-off and Jackie only appears in one scene but while not a JC movie, it's a decent cheesy 90s action film.

As far as I'm concerned, you may as well watch anything pre Supercop dubbed. They didn't shoot synch sound in Hong Kong movies at the time, so even the Cantonese versions are dubbed, and not with the original actors' voice either. Supercop was the first time a Hong Kong made Jackie Chan movie used his actual voice.

Don't watch the English dub of Project A though, it's bloody awful.

Saw Inside Out. Loved it, it gave me all the feels

Monkey King Hero Is Back, it's a Chinese cgi movie. It was really fun but ended a abruptly.

Drunken Master 1, classic Jackie Chan. the Norwegian Netflix version kept jumping from English dub to Cantonese which was pretty hilarious at times as the audio would change in the same scene.

Batman: Bad Blood. Very good. The score was fantastic. The highlight for me was Alfred fighting, he sure knows how to kick some butt.

Jupiter Ascending. Heard it was some science fiction. It sucked.
