Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story
That is a great one, sullly. I've watched it twice already. If Lance had not fallen from grace, he would have made a horrifically prosperous politician.
Another good "sports and drugs" documentary (also on Netflix) is called All This Mayhem which is about two Australian brothers, Tas and Ben Pappas, who became pro skateboarders in the 90s. Doesn't really paint Tony Hawk in a good light and is a much sadder, darker tale than Stop At Nothing, but still a really absorbing movie.
Saw Rogue One last week, maybe the best Star Wars since Empire Strikes Back? It's got a fairly large cast but all the characters are pretty likable and well developed. The plot isn't very interesting, but at least it's relatively coherent. There are a lot of sappy death scenes where someone utters some final dying words while cradled in another's arms, and the storm troopers aim like storm troopers, but that's all to be expected. Darth Vader gets a 20 second action scene at the end which is pretty awesome. Worth watching for anyone who likes big budget action films.
Went to see Fantastic Beasts yesterday, the Harry Potter prequel set in 1920s NYC. Its sort of mediocre, not as good as any of the films in the main series. The biggest problem is it has two plots going which are totally unconnected. The main plot is about these kids who repress their magic abilities. But then the film spends most of its runtime following this dude who loses some magical creatures in the city and has to recapture them. The tracking down of the fantastic beasts seems trivial because its so irrelevant to the main story.
And you know how right wing Christians are always railing against Harry Potter for teaching children witchcraft? Well I did like how this movie fires back by making one of the main villains a witch-persecuting, child-beating, religious zealot.
Edit: Actually, just the other day I got this pamphlet on my car at the Kmart parking lot of Bishop. Kind of hilarious.
