    47 Meters Down


    Not fantastic, but amazing by DTV standards. I would have totally rented this and watched it three times when I was 12.

    (Watched first 20 minutes on an airplane but abandoned when I realized how many spooky ambient ocean sounds I was missing. Resumed at 1AM after getting home.)

    Shouldn't technically file this. Missed the last 10 minutes because our plane landed, and the next one, while still the same airline, had all the same movies except for this one.

    I'd love to get a random Sorkin non-fiction annually. Into it.

    It started pouring down rain here on the mountain, thunder cracking constantly, and it looked so much like the Pacific NW of this movie that I had to throw it on. Backgrounded while shooting the last Grovemade photo set before packing up my equipment to come back to Portland.

    Wonderful bits throughout, and I'll certainly be rewatching it more than a lot of the other Marvel, but my expectations were too high. I was hoping it would feel like a majority Taika Waititi movie, but there was a lot of time dedicated to standard Marvel movie plot beats.

    On the pros, Waititi as the rock man was great, and Goldblum tickled me multiple times per line.
