MOVIES AND SHOWS WATCHED THIS WEEK
The Outfit (2022) – Pretty solid, slow burn, mystery of a film. Mark Rylance is great in it. The whole movie feels like a play since it all takes place in one location. I like that it unraveled slowly, but unsurprisingly it didn’t bring anything new to the table cinematically. 3.75/5
S.W.A.T. (2017-Present) – Since watching the film last week, we started the series. The pilot was directed by Justin Lin and was pretty great. The show itself is pretty formulaic, but it’s entertaining enough and has some cool car chases. 3.5/5
The Mystery of D.B. Cooper (2020) – A pretty interesting doc that intertwines the story of the mysterious plane hijacking and a handful of people with their theories that they knew the real Dan Cooper after he got away with the money. I may watch the Netflix doc as well. 3.5/5
The Invisible Pilot (2022) – A 3 part documentary about a small-town crop-duster pilot named Gary Betzner, who kills himself by jumping off a bridge to his death, in 1977. The story that follows after is some batshit stuff. 4/5
Spiderhead (2022) – A well acted and slightly divisive little thriller. The cast is really good throughout, the story is solid, but again it’s nothing too mind-blowing in the long run. It does exactly what it sets out to do, entertain. That being said I enjoyed it. 4/5
