Thank god, haha. And I 100% agree.

BEWARE OF MR BAKER (2012). Impressive debut from Director Jay Bulgar is a documentary of Cream/Blind Faith /other bands drummer Peter "Ginger" Baker widely considered one of the best in his field. Indeed he was with much footage from the previously listed groups as well as when he lived in Nigeria and "Drum Battles" with other players. He also was a devotee of Polo and touching scenes of he and his horses/dogs/stepchildren.
He also was a notoriously prickly individual with seemingly little regard for anyone else and very little impulse control-You'll almost shake your head in amazement at some of the things He did and also be glad You didn't have to be around him , for despite his talent and amazing life, He was an abrasive, cantankerous asshole.
While I certainly found this well made, it made Me think back when I started finding out that musicians I looked up to when younger, turned out to be people I would want to avoid at all costs. ***

Wasn’t impressed either. Just another “horror” movie.

Tiny Spoilers For Each Film

MIDSOMMAR - I rented this because I saw Florence Pugh in Fighting With My Family and fell in love. Did NOT fall in love with this film. The opening was really cool. She showed her chops in what could have been an extremely awful boring introduction. Then it switched to Sweden and it went down hill from there.

The only good part was the sex scene. I've never involuntarily laughed so hard in years.

If you haven't seen this. FF to the sex scene, everything before and after SUCKS.

Plot Spoilers below for Greta.

GRETA - I got a two for one special from Redbox. This was actually a better horror flick then Midsommar. But, it still came up short. The one thing that truly annoys me is sane folks not doing the most obvious thing during a crisis.

Moretz's character has Greta stalking her. She does everything she should, and to no avail. Finally Greta goes nuts in the restaurant Moretz waitresses at, and is arrested. Fine. All this is perfectly acceptable in the real world. THEN Moretz goes missing. In a normal world, go to the cops. They didn't in the movie. They went to a private Detective.

It turns out, going to the police was cut from the movie, and is in the deleted scenes special feature. It was a moronic scene. Instead of saying "my daughter has a stalker who was arrested, and she sent us each photos making us think she was away". It was a scene about Moretz's sanity. Completely unrealistic and deserved to be cut. But, a reasonable scene should have been there.

Both were a waste of time.
