    One of my favorite movies was Total Recall with Arnold. Won't even watch Total Recall 2012 because I've read a lot about how much it sucks. Wouldn't want it to pollute the memories from the original.

    For one I agree with you. It's my dream to go there after I watched the movie :)

    Of all the McDonagh films I have seen, the short Six Shooter,is funnier than Brugues and the Seven Psychopaths.

    It's brilliant!!!! Normally Colin O'Farrell irritates me, but not in this film. Highly recommend to those who haven't seen.

    Whiplash. Fantastic film,without hesitation I'd name it my favourite of 2014,although there's still a couple I haven't seen. Damn I wish I lived in LA so I could see things when they first come out...

    In Bruges - Enjoyed it. Gleeson, Farrell, Ralph Fiennes (of Schindler's List).


    Sabrina (1954) - In another thread, someone said this was Wilder's best movie. I can't agree with that although the movie was a nice change from the serious stuff i've been seeing.

    Bogart, Audrey Hepburn.

    Yes, `twas.

    Just seen both of them. Sadly, had to take a long overnight break between Calvary, so lost the mood.

    Both are fine movies, enjoyed them. Gleeson is remarkable.

    Thanks for recommending.

    In Bruges was an excellent movie. I've been watching some of the Breaking Bad episodes from various seasons.


    This was a classic.

    Seven Psychopaths, for the 2nd time.

    Paulo: Put your hands up!
    Hans: No.
    Paulo: What?
    Hans: I said no.
    Paulo: Why not?
    Hans: Because I don't want to.
    Paulo: But I've got a gun...
    Hans: I don't care.
    Paulo: It doesn't make any sense!
    Hans: Too bad!

    Watching "Kick-Asss" right now. It's pretty good.

    Edited: Ah man, Hit Girl just showed up. Just sliced up a group of inner city drug dealing punks. Cool.

    Seven Years in Tibet (1997) - Brad Pitt.

    Half the movie is prior to his reaching Tibet :)

    Interesting, and it is biographical so must be true but there are several things that appear strange to someone from the East.

    How do people in an isolated village/town who do not interact with foreigners speak English so well.

    How does a girl in a Tibetan village not only befriend foreign men so easily, but even marry one of them. In such societies, the parents/elders always decide the match.

    Harrer has problems building a movie hall since the ground they dig has worms. However, there is a whole town there, so how was that built ?

    What is the point of listening to super old music like Beethoven or Mozart when you can listen to Redfoo / Bieber?

    Because they're good?

    Grand Budapest Hotel. Good,but a little disappointing given it's hype. Then again,I've never been that crazy about Wes Anderson,other than Rushmore...

    Premium Rush ( 2012) biker messenger action movie.
    I think I must have watched this 20 times.
    I watch it a lot during winter, all those memories of warm weather riding a bicycle fast and fun.

    Saw Rashomon by Kurosawa. Did enjoy, nice exploration on how different accounts of the same incident may tell completely different things.

    just saw LUCY.. very interesting movie. if it wasn't for scarlett johannsson, probably would have been worse.

    I am not sure how using 100 % of your brain would enable you to control electricity and time and see the past and so on............ don't get it?

    Saw 'Fury'. Didnt like it. Characters were very fake and unconvincing (as well as many scenes). I could not get invested in the characters and therefore didn't care what would happen to them. I was expecting much better.

    Currently Birdman,another one that isn't living up to expectations,I'd still give it 8/10 though. The only movie from 2014 that has been as good as I hoped it would be is Whiplash...

    American Sniper - Didn't care for it, frankly.

    The Big Clock (1948) - Ray Milland, Charles Laughton, Maureen O'Sullivan. Quite okay but nothing great.

    Somewhere over the weekend did catch Only God Forgives (2013) which was quite awful. Ryan Gosling.

    I saw Boiler Room immediately after seeing WOWS. WOWS seemed to be a copy of BR.

    My Left Foot (1989) - Daniel Day-Lewis, Brenda Fricker. DDL plays a boy with cerebral palsy.

    Reminded me a bit of Awakenings, a 1990 movie with Deniro about a patient with encephalitis.

    In the middle of Inherent Vice. Kind of tough to follow at times, but they nailed the 70s vibe perfectly. I do like that, and Phoenix's character is likable.

    I am still very confused by this movie LUCY. I understand that we will be smarter and achieve some amazing feats when we start using 20 % or more of our brain. BUT HOW on earth do we start to control radio waves and start to go back in time as in TIME travel and stuff,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Even if we use 100 % of our brain, it seems impossible how we can travel in time and ascend into GOD like being............ I don't get it??????????????

    Recently watched Foxcatcher, American Sniper, Birdman and Big Eyes. Birdman was the best of the bunch, IMHO. Michael Keaton deserved his Golden Globe award. Great cast and great acting throughout. Foxcatcher was the most over-hyped to me. Mark Ruffalo was the best in that flick but Steve Carrell was not as good as some have stated. Kind of disappointing, tbh.
