    Infinity Pool

    ★★★★

    Took MGF to see it. Empty theater save for one loner five rows below us. Possibly my last time ever seeing a film at the venue soon to be formerly known as the Sherman Oaks Regal né Arclight. Went out with a... bang.

    For the second time in 3 years this theater is closing down. So depressing and upsetting.

    The film gave her some stuff to work with though.

    The Rookie

    ★★★

    Puerto Rican Raul Julia and Brazilian Sônia Braga as German villains?

    Sônia Braga rapes Clint Eastwood? A Mercedes-Benz convertible driving through the fourth-floor window of an exploding warehouse?

    Charlie Sheen taking down a bar full of bikers single-handedly?

    In!

    Classic "one for them, one for me" Clint. He gives WB this. He gets to do White Hunter Black Heart. After this though? Clint goes on a RUN. Unforgiven, In the Line of Fire and A Perfect World all during 1992 and 1993.

    Ch. 6 (It’s All Gone, Kid)

    I watched the whole series over the last 3 nights. Haven’t cried this much in a long time. Masochistic. It’s to the series’ credit that it focused solely on the survivors and their stories…no politics…no celebrities…no voice over.

    Not enough slow motion frisbee scenes these days.
