    Wonder Woman - I really enjoyed it. Learning about the back story of how she got her powers etc. This will sound silly but I felt empowered and immediately wanted to get a whip/lasso thing and beat bad guys up.

    Watched Alien: Covenant and The Mummy. I was really looking forward to both, but was sort of disappointed with them. Tom Cruise just didn't do it for me in The Mummy, but the story was okay. And while Michael Fassbender was fantastic in Alien, the other characters did sooo many stupid things, it just irritated me.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    I heard Tom Cruise's Mummy was horrible. The rumors were that he had a stranglehold on every aspect of that movie, including the editing. I don't think I'll see it. Fat Russell Crowe makes me sad. I had such a thing for him back in the day. Those legs in Gladiator =

    Went to see Baby Driver yesterday. It was absolutely fantastic. I'd even venture to go into best movie of the year so far territory. It was released at the right time it's a great summer movie. But it's well made and creative enough that it should be in Oscar discussions too.

    Completely agree. This was a fantastic movie and easily one of the best I've seen this year. Loved the music too.

    Yeah, he has fluffed up a bit. I've always loved his voice, it's up there with Morgan Freeman. Just so pleasant to listen to.

    I need to go see Baby Driver!

    I felt the SAME WAY when I saw the previews for The Mummy with Russel Crowe. I even said to my DH - how is RC, an Oscar winner, reduced to these supporting fluff roles? How? Why? I loved Gladiator. I loved LA Confidential maybe more. But he just hasn't been able to recreate that magic. Was it Meg Ryan's fault? His ridiculous drunken behavior? The band thing? What?

    Anyhoo, this weekend I watched a truly WTF bizarre movie. So much so, that I'm not sure if it was a bad movie or a good movie or just a wierd movie. Hopefully someone on here will also watch it and share their thoughts - The 9th Life of Louis Drax. I only watched it to see something non-50 Shades that Jamie Dornan was in.

    I think Russel Crowe fell into the same trap that many actors do - he's a GREAT character actor, tried to be a movie star, and fell flat. He can sell movies based on his ability to give a great performance, but I don't think he can sell them on his personality for the reasons you've listed - the Meg Ryan thing wasn't good for him, he's seen as a jerk and a drunk. That said, while I have not seen it, I've heard VERY positive things about Nice Guys. It sounds like he may be trying to fall back into the mode of going unnoticed in strong performances.
