    "Have you ever thought about, like, how open houses are... weird?" - main character in the Netflix thriller titled "The Open House"

    "um no you dillweed because they ain't" - me, a bored person, 33 minutes into the spectacularly mediocre Netflix thriller titled "The Open House"

    ★★½

    PM Entertainment action/sci-fi/cage-fight hybrid starts out with a great pace and surprisingly ambitious set-up but unfortunately devolves into alternating great/bad fight scenes (the former from Daniels and the latter from Chad McQueen) when they go under-cover into the "HELL ZONES" (lol).

    What's great, is every fighter in the "HELL ZONE" has ridiculously lazy names like HAMMER, STOMPER, THE SWORDSMAN and McQueen/Daniels have to get shitty fighter-names too and McQueen ends up with THE ALLEY CAT which is fucking hilarious.

    Worth for some laughs, the solid first-half, and not too much else.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★★½

    “Pass on what you have learned. Strength, mastery. But weakness, folly, failure also. Yes, failure most of all. The greatest teacher, failure is. Luke, we are what they grow beyond. That is the true burden of all masters.”

    ★★★★★

    Michael Ritchie's Fletch is an endlessly re-watchable -- and quotable -- comedy/action flick with a solid plot adapted from the book of the same name. The kind of movie that I can watch any day of the year (and in any mood) and I'll love it no matter what.
