How the heck have y'all never seen Stargate?  I mean, come on - action hero Kurt Russel and James Spader when he still had hair!

I developed a bit of a James Spader crush centered solely around Stargate. I was a sophomore in high school. That crush did not age well.

I can't get over James Spader from the movie "Secretary" being the same James Spader that's in "The Blacklist".

Shouldn’t we be basing our initial opinion of James Spader on pretty in pink?

agree!!!  I think it is the lack of hair now...and the jowls that some people get as they age.  I hope I'm not a jowl person when I get older.

Most don't realize he was also the voice of Ultron in the Avengers movie too.

Fired up “The Avengers, Infinity War” for the boys.  It was actually pretty amusing watching them watch the movie. They loved it...up to the end. The whole time leading up to the end, they kept up the idea that the good guys would pull it out. When they didn’t and characters started evaporating, Jack was almost in tears. He went from loving the movie to saying it was awful and saying whoever made the movie was a terrible person. They got better when I told them there was going to be another Avengers movie.

It's all primarily hinging on Dr. Strange and the Time Infinity Stone. :thumbs:

Antman also gives a good idea on other possibilities as well.

Finally got around to seeing Avengers, Infinity War and while it was entertaining I don't quite understand the mania about it.

Haven't seen it yet, but I will once it is out on disc/digital.  Already heard rumblings that the scene in the credits kinda sets up the next Avengers movie.

Watched "American Made" - pretty good.  Tom Cruise plays a pilot who ends up double dipping for both the CIA and the Medellin Cartel during the cocaine era.

We saw three movies and one video this weekend: 

Christopher Robin:  Meh.

Won't You Be My Neighbor: Really came away from this thinking Mr. Rogers was a really, really good person. Still a cruddy TV show that even I found boring as a kid, if sweet. But definitely a good guy and had the best interests of children at heart. As far as the movie goes, it was a typical documentary in terms of style and pacing: lots of interviews with people who knew him, lots of bad quality video from the old shows. For me the highlight was Mr. Rogers testifying before Congress to increase funding for PBS, and of course Mr. Rogers kicking Nazi ass on D-Day. Well the actual real highlight was seeing it in our local theater-pub with a couple of Widmer Hefeweisens.

Eighth Grade: Was a lot more low-budget than I was expecting, but a good movie and extremely realistic look at being a middle schooler, at least a middle school girl, that is. I took my middle schooler boy to see it and he said it was pretty good but it made him feel kind of sad. As an adult with memories of middle school, it made me glad to be through with that experience, and reinforced my impression that middle school is THE worst time of life.

12 Years a Slave: Finally got around to seeing this on Amazon. Brutal. I've been on a Lincoln kick lately: watched 'Lincoln" and am currently half-way through Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals. This was an excellent addition to both of those. I had to reassure my wife at several points during and after the movie that not all white people were that terrible.

Cool. Don't forget this one...

No kids at home last night so we watched "Deadpool 2" last night.  I give it 2 severed thumbs up.

As part of my week of jury dut, we watched 12 Angry Men.

There is no action.  There are no gun shots.  There is no CGI.  This is just a good drama movie with distinct characters.  I personally enjoyed how the most subtle pieces of the testimony of witnesses are pulled apart and discussed in the deliberation.  It's simple and I like it.  I give it four switchblades.

Quiet Place:  The wife, I and our 14 year old loved it.  Probably too scary for the 9 yr old though.  Nice to watch something that wasn't a sucky sequel for a change.

Dr. Strange: MEH.  Another Marvel movie

Transformers: The Last Knight: I watched this for the boys sake.  The dialog was horrible, the plot was all over the place and of course they set it up for yet another movie.  I pray it doesnt get funded.
