New Year's Movies

I managed to take in a couple of movies over the holidays.   Yes, of course we took the family to see the new Star Wars flick.  It was decent but I was a little underwhelmed as it felt like they brought back all of the old characters and the old story vs. charging forward.  <sigh>

I went and saw The Hateful Eight by myself.  The movie was full of surprises which was a nice change.

  • I thought that the 1/2 half of the movie was a done in the spirit of some of some great westerns... I was very impressed. --Great scenery, photography, characters, and music.
  • The second half of the movie was classic Quentin Tarantino.

It was a fun way to spend an afternoon.
