Of the few movies I see, I do rate them (in my head) on how much I enjoy them.

Last one rented (Netflix DVD): Monuments Men. Rating, A-, partly because while he's a good enough actor, George Clooney should maybe stick to directing. I enjoy his movies but might enjoy them more without him in a starring role.
The one before that: Grand Budapest Hotel. A for enjoyability

I don't get to theaters much.

I'll keep an eye on your ratings. :-) (and put movies in my Netflx DVD queue)

Since the Oscar nominees came out I've kept them in mind when deciding what to see, not that they are foolproof. The latest edition of the Mad Max series, up for Best Picture, was on TV recently, couldn't tolerate it for more than 15 minutes...

But generally, between the artsy cinema in Amherst and the multi-plex at the mall, we get a pretty good selection to choose from.

Next on the list, I think, will be Room and 45 years.

I saw The Revenant recently, and it didn't seem like what I'd imagine to be your kind of movie, though there was a lot of traveling on foot in the great outdoors. But I could be wrong, maybe you would like it.

Already passed on that one, for better or worse.

You can pass on The Hateful Eight as well. I saw the AwesomeVision version, and the picture was indeed quite good, but I was expecting a lot of sweeping vistas and instead got a movie where most of the story takes place inside a cabin in a blizzard. Quite likely the most gratuitously gory film I've ever seen.

Ok. Rhonda was lobbying for the Hateful 8 and we were headed off to it, right around the time my back went out. So maybe we will pass. That said, I have enjoyed many of the Tarantino movies, including some of the recent ones, Inglorious Basterds and Django.
