Wind River (2017) :

Wind River is a murder mystery about the death of a native girl in Wyoming.

Jeremy Renner is terrific as the local hunter.  Equally good is Elizabeth Olsen as the FBI agent investigating the crime.

Better still is the writing.  The movie was written by Taylor Sheridan who also wrote Hell Or High Water and Sicario - two of the better movies in recent years.  Sheridan is blessed with the ability to create deep layered characters, interesting stories, and he has an ear for dialogue.

What he doesn't have is a director's eye because the direction of Wind River is so poor, it almost ruins the movie : there is the unnecessary shaking camera, Native music that overpowers, violence that is WAY over the top, and a shocking lack of vapor coming from the actor's mouths in the frozen wilderness.

If only someone had told Sheridan to stick to writing and a more competent director had been hired, Wind River could have been something special.  Instead, it barely gets a passing grade.

The Little Hours (2017) :

A raunchy UNfunny comedy about nuns in the middle ages.  Lots of swearing and sex - all of which made me feel uncomfortable.  Only the beautiful/sexy Aubrey Plaza added something positive to this negative mean spirited movie.  

Plaza, who is Catholic, also produced The Little Hours, which died at the box office :), so hopefully, next time, she will avoid making a movie that mocks the Catholic Church.

It's garbage.  Avoid!

The Hitman's Bodyguard (2017) :

Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds bicker constantly in a really bad 2017 version of Midnight Run, where the swearing/violence is endless, the laughs non existent (there was 1 funny scene where Jackson spots the love of his life, Salma Hayek), and the plot makes NO sense.

On the plus side, there were nuns - which always makes me happy.

The Hitman's Bodyguard is beyond bad...  and LONG.

Thanks, buddy.  I have been letting my movie watching slip.  I need to get back into it.  :)

Rocco (2016) :

Documentary about the retirement of porn star Rocco Siffredi.

The well endowed Rocco, a good father and practicing Catholic, is leaving the "life".  He is a complicated man, known for both his love and abuse of women - many actresses are afraid to work with him.  He has a beautiful wife who sits at home and does yoga while he lives a lifestyle that would make most young men weep with envy.  Rocco is a sex addict, if there ever was one, and it's only a matter of time before he comes out of retirement because, we know, there is no way he can stop.

In the end, he comes across as a bit of a sick nut.  A lucky nut, but a nut just the same.  Sadly, the women he works with/uses aren't as lucky.  God willing, one won't end up dead before he quits for good - or the lifestyle kills him.

Interesting and insightful, but not for everyone.

7/10

NOTE :

A day later, the most interesting take away from the documentary is not about Rocco, but about addiction.  It seems, no matter the addiction, you can NEVER stop / get enough, and you need to continually push the envelope to get a rush.  All the while, the person gets deeper and deeper, lost in the illness.  

It's sad and a little scary.

A movie trailer is not attached because it includes nudity.

8/10

 The latest installment of Pirates is very good, although it did drag a couple of times, otherwise a great show.

If you never take my advice on a movie again, please stay away from this piece of garbage.  They stole my $10 - and 2 hours of my life.  Don`t give them yours.
