Few thoughts on some movies I've seen this year so far.

Logan: It's alright but it's way too depressing. The acting was great all around, and taking this character into such a dark territory took guts, but I have no desire seeing it ever again. It actually put me in a really horrible mood, and if that was the intention, congrats I guess.

Beauty and the Beast: Annoying, boring, unnecessary. Emma Watson completely miscast.

Split: Typical Shyamalan nonsense with a career-best performance by James McAvoy that will 100% be ignored come awards season. He's so good in this, I will watch it again for him alone.

Kong: Skull Island: The human characters bog the movie down, but I enjoyed it. Grade A visual effects, too.

The Fate of the Furious: More of the same, Jason Statham and Psycho Charlize steal the show.

Life: A stupid beyond words Alien ripoff, with the cheesiest, least imaginative ending in recent memory.

The Discovery: I have been anticipating this movie for a while now, and I was kind of disappointed. It has a fantastic premise, but I think Charlie McDowell should have spent more time perfecting the screenplay, because it came off as a bit of a jumbled mess. I don't think any less of him as a director, and I admire his ambition, though. Also, there's a major Charlie Kaufman Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vibe about it which I really liked. It's just a bit of a missed opportunity.

Personal Shopper: Well, it's better than Clouds of Sils Maria, which isn't saying much considering that was one of the worst movies I've seen that year. I still don't get the hype for Kristen Stewart, critics seem to love her, but she's as bland to me as ever. Also, 60% of this movie is her on her phone, texting. There's more shots of an iPhone 6 in this movie than there is of her face. Apple must be thrilled.

Power Rangers: Forgettable, but better than it had any right to be. Loved the young actors, they really had fantastic chemistry.

Fifty Shades Darker: Kill me now.

Catfight: I already know a few people who I've recommended this to that DESPISE it, but I think it's one of the best movies of the year. lol It's such an original, ridiculous and hilarious satire that I can barely even believe it exists. I understand why it might annoy some people, it's very out there, and its type of humor won't be for everybody, but if broad humor is your thing, please see it because I think it deserves a lot more attention.

Get Out: Brilliant, best movie of the year so far, don't miss it.

I've only seen The Immigrant and I liked it. I'll catch TLCOZ later on in the year.

BTW, one of the nominations for MTV Movie Awards this year completely spoils Get Out. :doh Like, I get that the movie has been out for months, but maybe some people wanted to wait to watch it at home. Just a heads up to avoid seeing those before you watch the movie.

Alex Romero, 94; choreographer for Elvis in 'Jailhouse Rock'
Mary Rourke | Los Angeles Times
Tuesday, September 18, 2007

Alex Romero, a dancer and choreographer who directed Elvis Presley's dancing for the movie "Jailhouse Rock" and also worked with Presley on three other films, has died. He was 94.

Romero died Sept. 8 of natural causes at the Motion Picture and Television Fund home, according to Mark Knowles, a dance writer and friend. He had been a resident of the home for several years.

A gracefully athletic dancer, Romero got his start in movies in the early 1940s. He was a featured dancer in "On the Town," a 1949 film that starred Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra. He also performed in the 1951 film "An American in Paris," which also starred Kelly.

He worked as an assistant choreographer before he went out on his own. His earliest solo credits include "The Affairs of Dobie Gillis," starring Bobby Van and Debbie Reynolds in 1953.

Romero was named staff choreographer for MGM in the late 1940s and held the position for almost 20 years.

"Alex was the last link to the Golden Age of movie musicals," said Larry Billman, author of the encyclopedia "Film Choreographers and Dance Directors" (1997). "Fortunately, before Alex left he moved movie choreography into the next generation."

Romero was known for his humor and imaginative use of props in dances he choreographed. In "The Fastest Gun Alive," a 1956 western, he choreographed Russ Tamblyn, who danced with a shovel as a prop. Romero also worked with Tamblyn on "Tom Thumb" in 1958.

His other film credits include "The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm," a 1962 movie with a number of dance scenes, and "Love at First Bite," a 1979 comedy starring George Hamilton and Susan Saint James.

For Presley, Romero choreographed "Double Trouble" and "Clambake" in 1967 as well as "Speedway" the next year.

Their most memorable collaboration remained "Jailhouse Rock" in 1957.

"Jailhouse became a signature piece for Elvis, and it helped make rock 'n' roll an acceptable dance form for films," Knowles said.

The production number for the movie's title song was Presley's first choreographed routine, according to "Down at the End of Lonely Street: The Life and Death of Elvis Presley," by Peter Harry Brown and Pat H. Broeske (1997).

"I guess he thought that I was going to give him some slick dancing steps," Romero said in the book. "I chose steps that were foreign to him, but that were also like him, so he could pick them up."

Born Alexander Bernard Quiroga on Aug. 20, 1913, in San Antonio, he started dancing professionally at 15 in a touring dance act started by three of his brothers. The act broke up in the late 1930s. Romero went to work in Hollywood soon after that.

He married Frances Driscoll in 1936. She died in 1997. Romero is survived by his daughters Melinda Akard of Oviedo, Fla., and Judy George of Woodland Hills; four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

@DrBombay you only post about death what's up with that ?

Kingsman caught me by surprise I didn't expect it to be that violent, but I enjoyed it, that's the type of movie Jen should get a small role in, they have an even bigger cast in this one.

Fate of the Furious opening with the biggest global opening ever with $532.5 million. I always thought Jen would have been good somewhere in the Franchise, it has a huge Latino following.

I've written an article on my blog about just how much the franchise has grown since its first film. I'd Love for you guys to check it out.

Watched that one, what a weird movie Shyamalan films are all like that but I hadn't seen one since The Village, I agree about McAvoy he was amazing, so frightening, the movie was pretty meh the set up fo the revelation was a little lazy I was bored watching it.

Because some asshole critics decided to give away what Colossal is actually about, especially after the way trailers did such a fantastic job of not spoiling anything, I'll just say it's one of the most imaginative movies I've seen in recent memory. Some of the themes really took me by surprise, and I loved how the movie got progressively darker as it went along. Career best performances from Hathaway and Sudeikis. Also, that third act - Wow. It's not perfect though, there are parts of it that could've been presented in a better way, but when a movie is overall this ambitious, the flaws are easier to overlook. See it ASAP, but keep in mind though, it's definitely a weird one.

The edge of Seventeen: this was great and Hailee Steinfeld was just perfect her character felt really real and it's like the movie start has a comedy and get darker and darker also Woody was hilarious he had great lines.

The Founder:
didn't expect to like this one but the story was really absorbing really interesting to learn about the beginnings of Mc Donalds and Keaton give one of his best performance.
