Just got back from watching Dark Waters for work. Not a bad movie if you like the lawyer drama type movies. It's a little less dramatic than the trailer portrays it. DuPont is so worried about the movie they released a 2 page rebuttal press release to their depiction in the film. That's a good endorsement in my book.

Watched Dark Waters last night based on this review.  Interesting stuff, really enjoyed it.  The trailer prompted me to go down the google rabbit-hole on the backstory before I saw the movie,  including the New York Times Magazine article the movie was based on, "The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare."  The wife on the other hand hadn't read anything about it, and also enjoyed the movie, if maybe not as much as I did.

Watched "Legend" on Netflix.

Semi-true story of the gangster (Brit mafia-types) Kray brothers in 1960s London.  Think "Mad Men" with a lot of the ol' "ultra-violence" added.

Pretty well done, I thought.

Not a movie, but “The Last Dance” documentary about Michael Jordan and the 90’s Bulls was great.

Another “not a movie” and a bit dated but I just started Cobra Kai on Netflix and it’s excellent. Custom designed for men of a certain age. There’s even a hilarious Iron Eagle reference early in season one. Definitely worth a watch if you haven’t discovered it yet.

Not "latest movie" but definitely a greatest: Just made my flight watch 12 O'clock High as a part of mandatory fun before graduation at OTS and they really enjoyed it.  Had to keep the tradition going.

 

Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me, til I come marching home!

Mandatory fun?  We watched it as part of a class when I went through OTS.

I am happy to see it still has a place in the curriculum, though.

they didn't show it to us officially which is sad - in fact - we got guidance from multiple instructors that we weren't aloud to watch any movies at all when we asked to show it. I just put it up on my computer in the flight room when they were gone. 🤙 We had so much freaking down time here.

Why is an Iron Eagle reference related to the KK universe?

‘80s. And because Johnny knows that Lou Gossett JR is the only place you ever need to turn for inspiration.

So I put this here vs starting another thread that likely wouldn't be that long.

 

Sean Connery died today, aged 90.

 

The best James Bond ever.

So suck it, Trebek!

And now Trebek has died but it was pretty much a foregone conclusion considering he was 80 and had Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

I didn't see any feedback on "We Go in at Dawn".

Did anybody see that? Thoughts? Comments? Is it worth watching? Sorry if posted and I missed it.

Not that I go by ratings, but IMDB only gives it 3/10 stars out of 138 reviews...

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7622584/

Amazon reviews are 3.5 out of 5, with 130 reviews.

From the trailer it looks interesting, I have put it on my watch list!

I think it has been mentioned here before, but The Expanse is excellent SciFi.

Speaking of good sci-fi...

Reading the book for the first time now & finding it very well written and deep. Looking forward to Denis Villeneuve’s (Sicario, Blade Runner 2049) film adaptation.
