Everything Must Go

I watched Everything Must Go yesterday. I taped it when it was on HBO. It has Will Ferrell, Rebecca Hall, Michael Peña, Christopher Jordan Wallace, Laura Dern, Stephen Root, and Glenn Howerton in it.

Big Warning: there is one sex scene.

In this movie, a man named Nick loses his job and his wife kicks him out all in the same day. His friend tells him to have a lard sale to get rid of the stuff in front of his house. Nick is an alcoholic and he sorta sales some stuff. A boy in the neighborhood helps him. Nick later sobers up and he sales everything and wins back the keys to the house from his wife.

I did like this movie even though it had a sad ending. Wednesday I’m watching Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Next week I’m watching Adam (2009).

A Cure for Wellness

I watched A Cure for Wellness yesterday. I taped it when it was on Cinemax. It has Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth, Ivo Nandi, Celia Imrie, and Harry Groener in it.

Big Warning: There are some gross parts.

In this movie, A stockbroker gets a letter from the CEO. He reads the letter and he has a heart attack and dies. The board of directors decide to send another stockbroker to bring the CEO back home so he can sign off on an important merger. The stockbroker goes to the “wellness spa.” But he can’t bring back the CEO. He later learns about the history about the so-called spa. He also gets stuck there, but he does something drastic and decides to quit his job. (Note: I think he decides to quit because he now knows a valuable and powerful secret that could make him a billionaire.)

I loved this movie. Next week I’m watching Everything Must Go.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Chris and I did go see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker after Christmas. It has Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Anthony Daniels, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Joonas Suotamo, and Ian McDiarmid in it.

Big Warning: there is lots of violence and one very sad part which is so wrong.

In this movie, Rey is still trying channel the Jedi’s powers. She also is still connected to Kylo Ren/Ben. Kylo Ren learns who Rey’s parents are. He later tells her and she is shocked. Rey does channels the Jedi’s powers and defeats the evil one. Then the very sad part which is very wrong happens.

Note: There should be a writer’s decree that if you make a character a good person, you SHOULDN’T kill them off. (gets off soapbox.)

Even though there was a sad part, I loved the movie.

Her husband suggests going to the beach as a vacation. She doesn’t want to, but she does anyway. Then a family of four shows up at their house. That family of four wants their lives.
