    Predestination, starring Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook.

    Nobody can get back in time (time machine) and prevent the inevitable.

    Saw Whiplash. Similar story line to Unbreakable (with Bruce Willis) where a mad genius destroys a train load of innocent people, hoping the one who survives will be the hero he is searching for. In Whiplash, the mad jazz instructor destroys the egos of his students, hoping the one who survives will be the next great musician. Not badly made, but a stupid concept.

    Rambo [2008].

    Was exactly as I thought it would be. Stallone just effing people up.

    Maybe I don't know I just heard from a friend that she is making another HP book! Then I thought I hope there's another movie because I was so sad when it finished I wanted more movies hopefully I get my wish!! I haven't actually read the books just watched the movies but would love to read the books just haven't gotten around to it plus I'm not a big reader and they're pretty long books!

    I'm with you on Caine and Damon, bad casting choices and distracting.

    And also on the choice of design for the planets, it was a little dull to have a water world and then an ice world but on the VFX standpoint I couldn't disagree more strongly!

    LOTR were passable, but the CGI in the Hobbit films (especially seen in High Frame Rate) was overused and SOOOOO obvious, Orcs have become video game characters, and the only way to make them interesting seemed to be adding more of them.

    Smaug though, 10/10 for that!

    I remember watching that a while back,it was OK. I can't remember though,where was she hiking to and what was she going to do when she got there? It sort of reminded me of the film 'Wendy And Lucy' from a few years ago...

    Badlands (1973) - classic

    A Most Violent Year (2014) - Interesting movie about 1981, an immigrant family trying to make it in the oil business.

    It has Jessica Chastain who was in The Help. Directed by the same guy who did All is Lost which i enjoyed. Also has David Oyelowo who plays Dr King in Selma.

    ^ I gotta check it out.

    Just wanted to share, but I don't know why so many people dislike this one. I found it probably more enjoyable than Aliens (1986), or at least on par.

    Definitely not a thriller. Not to be confused with ID:A (2011) which is a thriller :)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1731998/

    I saw Citizenfour last night. Documentary.

    "In January 2013, Laura Poitras started receiving anonymous encrypted e-mails from "CITIZENFOUR," who claimed to have evidence of illegal covert surveillance programs run by the NSA in collaboration with other intelligence agencies worldwide. Five months later, she and reporters Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The resulting film is history unfolding before our eyes."

    Her parents were murdered long back, so yes a murder happened and violence was involved in the past.

    Oh forget it, it's not Interstellar, or whatever floats your boat :D

    Leviathan - Excellent Russian movie about a man's struggle against a corrupt mayor.

    Stunning locale (Barent's Sea).
    Nominee for Best Foreign Language Picture.

    Just finished seeing

    Nightcrawler- BRILLIANT. Jake Gyllenhall killed it and very well shot.
    Birdman- Another Brilliant film! Script and Cinematography were off the charts.
    Imitation Game- Cumberbatch was great, the direction was great but the script wasn't but still quite good.
    Theory of Everything- similar issues to the Imitation Game but my God Eddie Redmayne was amazing.

    Greetings to The Devil. A good Spanish Crime film. Not much dialogue from the Main Character, but I still found him very good, and quite chilling at times.

    Threads - Documentary style account of a nuclear holocaust and its effect on a working class city, and the eventual long term effects of nuclear war on civilization. My God.... One of the most disturbing movies you will ever see. Very well done and makes you think though.....

    Oh yes,I remember reading about that a long time ago,but sort of forgot about it. Will add to my list of movies to watch.

    Last watched a documentary on happiness. Interesting,but nothing too groundbreaking...

    Boyhood. Very long. But interesting. Note that it was actually shot over twelve years using the same actors. We've discussed this movie a bit either here, or in the Oscar Nominations thread. Just do a "search this thread" to see.

    How Do you Know (2010) - Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Jack Nicholson.

    Comedy. I enjoyed it. Bombed at box office, flop, negative reviews. I thought it was sweet.

    Finally, saw Hunger Games. Perhaps the reviews got me expecting a lot more but I'd say, it was just another popcorn movie.:-|

    Birdman - Can't decide if I like it or dislike it yet, it's fair to say it didn't blow me away anyway.

    It's incredibly hard to watch a movie so soon after it's so massively hyped up though...Generally I try to leave viewing of all movies at least 1 year after release, so the hype has disappeared and it can be viewed from a more neutral standpoint. I broke my rule, and regret doing it.

    My thoughts exactly. I'd give at a 7.5 or 8/10. Good,but by no means great. I last watched Primal Fear(1996) just after reading the book. The film was nowhere near as good as the book,but I still quite liked it. Edward Norton gave a great performance in one of his first roles...

    Yes, in fact Edward Norton was probably my favourite thing about Birdman, I enjoyed his performance, shame he didn't feature for the final 30 minutes.

    Wings (1966) - First movie made by Larisa Shepitko when she was about 26. About a famous/ace fighter pilot (during WW2) reduced to the boring life of a school head-mistress after the war. Great performance.

    Hunger Games, Catching Fire. This is definitely better than the first.
