I had only seen the one they played before Rogue One, I guess that was an earlier teaser. Just watched the one you posted, now THAT is much more like it :D

Hidden Figures

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Saw the resurrection of Gavin stone. I liked it it was funny but sadly a kind of predictable story line. I'm seeing A Dogs Purpose when it releases tomorrow(yes I'm aware of the "controversial footage" but I believe the footage was two different scenes edited to make it look like abuse and I don't consider tmz OR peta reliable sources

I thought Split was very entertaining, especially with James McAvoy in the lead playing a man with so many personalities. He's pretty good at playing a creeper, much like Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler.

I love Arrival so so much. It hits my all-time favorites list.

Hidden Figures made me happy. The acting was so vibrant and it was a real celebration of the previously unsung heroes of the space race.

Manchester by the Sea was just... sad. I thought Casey Affleck deserved to win Best Actor at the Oscars, but his win was definitely soured by the sexual assault allegations that have been floating around. It's too bad he couldn't keep his hands to himself, because I've thought he's a good actor since Gone Baby Gone. And can we give Michelle Williams a role where she's, yknow, happy?

Nocturnal Animals was depressing. Gripping, but depressing.

The Light Between Oceans was sad, but very beautifully shot. It's a story about love and guilt. And man, I would love to live on that island.

I really wanted to see Arrival, but I got hit with bronchitis when it was at my local theaters. I just got healthy enough to venture into a theater for two hours, but the movie is no longer around. :(
Sigh.
Maybe it will end up on HBO in a few months.

If you think you're going to ever see KONG, please don't wait for it to come to your living room are worse your smartphone.
Spend a couple extra bucks for the 3D glasses and see it at IMAX, pretty amazing stuff!

The NPR reviewer said something similar.

I wasn't planning to see this one but every time I see the trailer that siren song of Tom Hiddleston gets me every time.

Finally was able to see Get Out with the fam and really enjoyed it. It was thrilling, scary, smart and funny all at once.

Jordan Peele clearly has a bright future ahead of him as a filmmaker.
