  1. Wow, I’m surprised you guys liked Cloverfield P. so much. It was pretty bleh for me. Had a bad feeling with that opening scene in the car and the super clunky exposition, and it didn’t get much better after that. Had some cool ideas and a few good moments, but still, it’s a 5.5. Clever marketing ploy, though, and a good choice to give it an audience where it probably would have tanked in theaters.

    Saw two movies yesterday… The Florida Project is a big wow. Almost no plot, really. Just a slice of life, but very real and some wonderful capturing of humanity there in virtually every moment. And not that I had asked this question, but it answers whether I should ever become a manager at a motel with an emphatic “hell no.” :) That and Shape of Water, which I caught a couple weeks ago have made my updated 2017 top ten. Both are 9.5s.

    But The Greatest Showman was a big meh. And I generally like musicals, but this seemed more like a McMovieMusical. A fine message about appreciating all of humanity, some splashy parts, and good energy and enthusiasm by the cast, but super generic songs and kind of an after-school special kind of delivery to some of it. I’ll give it a 6.
