Finally caught Lady Bird last night. At times while watching I wasn't really blown away, but looking back it really was a lovely, well-done film. Has a pretty unique tone and pace, and some great performances.

Thanks FJ! I haven't yet, but the plan is to work on it this weekend. My ranking wasn't completely sorted and I decided not to rush it just to get something out.

Never seen The Hot Rock. Any good?

Paper Moon is a favorite of mine. "I want my two hundred dollars!"

(also, I prefer Paper Moon to The Last Picture Show)

Finally saw Shape of Water. It was good, but a little too whimsical for me, but overall I liked it.

I've seen The Shape of Water a few times now, and while I enjoy it, it does feel a bit slight. I really don't care about any of the supporting characters in that movie. The score, production design, and Sally Hawkins make the film. Three Billboards is another one that I feel is overrated. Well-acted and directed but it gets away from itself in the end and doesn't quite come together for me. I also feel like Get Out, while clever, is not as profound as people make it out to be. None of these films will make my Top 10.

Phantom Thread moved up my list after a second viewing and is one of my favorites of 2017. So much to like about that one.

Felt Billboards sticks the landing with the end scene. But agree that the middle/end of the movie kinds flounders all over the place.

Get Out is very very very clever. It's not profound but it has alot to say and says it really well. Which is more you can say about most thriller/horror films.

Just watched 'The Florida Project'. Not sure if it's been discussed yet?

Decent, but not as buzz worthy as many are making it out to be. I found it pretty slow moving, and not enough of William Dafoe's character. Pretty cool that they cast an IG find, to play a major part.

Haha I don’t know if I could sit through mother! again, at least not for a while...I mean it’s a great movie (I did not use the word enjoy Paul) but just very emotionally exhausting.
