Framing John DeLorean:

Now playing in theaters.

DeLorean cars are beautiful, and still look futuristic in 2019. There is something timeless about them.

Toy Story 4 breaks global box office record for animation
 
Toy Story 4, the long-awaited fourth film in the animated franchise, has broken global box office records for an animated movie.
 
It earned $238m (£187m) since opening worldwide over the weekend, performing particularly well in Latin America and Europe.
 
The film struggled in China, however, and also failed to meet expectations in the US, where its $118m (£93m) fell short of a predicted $140m (£110m).
 
It comes 24 years after the first film.
 
Film audiences' introduction to Sheriff Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) and their band of fellow toys in 1995 went on to make $395m (£310m) at the global box office.

Ad Astra looks like it's going to be a 2001 clone, or maybe more like Event Horizon:

The not-very-well-known-but-good actress Ruth Negga is in it.  She is amazing in the Preacher TV series.  In case you are wondering about the last name, she's half Ethiopian.

First Season of Preacher was fantastic. Ruth Negga was amazing. I lost interest half way through the second season though.

It would be cool to see a good depiction of space, I still remember when everyone started talking about how "Interstellar" was so realistic, so we really need to raise our standards.

You should see season 2 and 3.  They do eventually find god, but he is something of a disappointment -- but there could be more to him than meets the eye.

New Dark Crystal movie coming out soon.  Simon Pegg is in it -- I was wondering just the other day what happened to that guy, as I hadn't seen him in anything in a couple years.  I reckon his role in this new film will be "serious", which is quite a change for him -- most of his acting roles are comedic.  It's possible he will play a clumsy, funny Gelfling.

Midsommar is a twisted little tale

Like a kinky / sadomasochistic version of The Wicker Man.   The "grizzley" details:

It's unfortunate that the movie Crawl came out right as Louisiana and Florida are being hit by powerful storms.

Looks interesting, although I couldn't help but laugh at the moon buggy drive-by.

Preacher is unwatched, unloved, and doomed — but Tulip O’Hare goes on

https://www.theverge...y-joseph-gilgun

In the fourth and final season of AMC’s comic book adaptation Preacher, tough female lead Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga) is subjected to a Rorschach test psych evaluation. She tries her best to pass it, looking at each image and eagerly describing the grisly murders she sees in every inkblot. After she’s done, her kind doctor nervously explains, “The test results indicate that you’re an uninhibited deviant with a personality disorder prone to psychopathic outbursts. And a gun fetish. And unresolved abandonment issues.”

Tulip, who was painfully hopeful when talking about disembowelments and headshots a moment earlier, sinks into herself and acknowledges that the diagnosis fits. When the doctor tries to comfort her, she just gives him a sad little smile, like she’s trying to cheer him up. “It’s okay. Some people can’t be helped."

The scene feels like a Monty Python skit with a heart, a lovely encapsulation of why Preacher has been such a wonderful show. It may also explain why the series has been largely ignored by critics and gradually abandoned by viewers. The setup for this scene — Tulip’s preposterous, hyperbolic blood-and-brains reactions to a simple association test — is an absurdist sketch comedy gag. But Negga is so fully committed to the bit that it doesn’t feel like a cheap punchline. It’s more like she’s coming to terms with the joke that is her life. Her combination of cynicism and sincerity, of ironically fantastic narrative and natural, nuanced acting, seems almost designed to alienate every potential audience.
