Blaze

Biographical drama of musician Blaze Foley, directed by Ethan Hawke.

Interesting to see long ago teen idol (and, I think, current Dylan guitarist) Charlie Sexton playing a weathered Townes Van Zandt. (Was there ever a time when Townes wasn't weathered?)

A friend of mine, was desperate to see this after all of the trailers.  I thought it looked like a 2001 A Space Odyssey, rip off.

He went . . . and said it was absolute shit.

One movie that got excellent reviews that I *can't* recommend was Book Smart.

The two leads had no chemistry, the writing was terrible, and the music was atrocious. The two girls were the opposite of eye candy (one of them is Jonah Hill's sister, imagine Jonah Hill in a dress), and though that was part of the point, their personalities ranged from grating to non-existent. The boy who was supposed to be the "hot jock" (played by Cuba Gooding's son) seemed more like an art-fag gay-boy (not that there's anything wrong with that, but he just didn't fit the part.)

Olivia Wilde directed and I'd say she should stick to acting, but I haven't liked her in any of the films I've seen her acting in.

Joker was ok. I was fairly bored most of its run time. Zombieland 2 is a lot of fun. Will be a great lazy Sunday cable/streaming watch.

The Last Black Man in San Francisco

One of my favorite films of 2019, so far.

Great cameo by Jello Biafra. Totally knew that it was him two seconds after he opened his mouth.

Is he the nude guy waiting for the bus?  That scene is very SF.

Memo to directors: If you ever have the chance to cast former Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra as a segway-riding tour guide, do so immediately.

I really liked Parasite.
