"Avengers: Infinity War" was better than "Black Panther" but both were very good. "Sorry to bother you" was also good. And I was blown away by "Spiderman Into the Spiderverse."
I know a lot of people hated it but I was haunted by "Annihilation".

Another one I liked was "Bad Times at the El Royale". Another great performance by Jeff Bridges. Loved the music (mainly classic R & R). Set in the late 60's, it probably appeals more to Baby Boomers like myself.

"Hereditary" was a nice slow burn. "A Quiet Place" was overrated.

I felt like "Hereditary" was overrated too. I thought the acting and directing were great, but the story got a little over the top towards the end. Maybe it's just me... I wasn't buying it.

I feel like streaming services like Netflix and PSN have ruined me on theaters. I haven't seen a single movie this year and I only went to one movie last year. I really enjoyed "The Conjuring" on Netflix so I rented "The Conjuring 2" on PSN and was pleasantly surprised. B-horror sequels are usually awful, but it was certainly worth the few dollars I spent to rent it.

You can pretty much watch anything from your couch these days and the snacks are a lot cheaper. I finally got around to watching "Game of Thrones" and I've really been enjoying that. And I don't even have cable (television, anyway), much less HBO.

I've seen a lot of fiber optics being laid in Fitchburg. If it comes to my neighborhood I might never visit a movie theater again.
