The BurialCAST Jamie Foxx played a great role. Tommy Lee Jones did also. Jurnee Smollett is a better actress than I gave her credit for being. I wonder if you guys know why Jamie Fox told his crew when they were walking into court "Don't split poles."On a 1 to 10 scale I give the film 9. Going to and from Kaiser for my Covid-19 and flu shots I noticed there were a number of billboards advertising the movie.

In the last couple of weeks I've seen the following:
- Five Nights at Freddy's: I honestly knew nothing about the game or its built-in following. I thought it was fun and did Blumhouse credit.
- Killers of the Flower Moon: I really liked it. Lily Gladstone was wonderful and Leo turned in another great performance. I was really impressed with Jason Isbell. I wasn't expecting to see him, but he might be a legit actor if he really wants to be. Obviously Leo and Bobby D are the stars, but I really wanted to see more of Gladstone on screen. She's compelling and did a wonderful job of delivering the conflicted character without being melodramatic.
- A Haunting in Venice: This was a fun haunting story. I like the series of Branagh playing Poirot. I find Michelle Yeoh very tedious but I'm also bringing personal baggage to that equation because she made my life miserable for a 2 month span on another film about 8 years ago.
I'm really looking forward to Ferrari. I think Adam Driver is a terrific actor and Penelope Cruz is very underrated. Shailene Woodley is my girl, too. _________________ You are under no obligation to remain the same person you were a year ago, a month ago, or even a day ago.

Subway Stories: Tales from the Underground
vignette "Manhattan Miracle"
features NYC native Gregory Hines (RIP) and Anne Heche (RIP)
HBO put out this one-off special at the beginning of its apex, and it is one of the best things in its catalog. This vignette in particular is something that shook me as a teen and I think about it every day.
