    I see we are still talking about Suresh S.
    He is something else.

    Ok, movies this past two months....

    I watched Boyhood. Again. It changes every time. If it rains, i might watch it for the fourth time this weekend.

    Also saw another ethan hawke vehicle, dead poets society. First time. I was too cool for school when it came out and i never got into it until now, watching it with my eldest. Heavier lifting than I had planned. Great fun talking about it with lax sticks in hand.

    Also saw Food, Inc. and Fast food nation. Fast food nation (linklater) ran along with boyhood. Some of the same dialogue, almost! Man, Food, Inc. is just depressing.

    Saw. Few minutes of Swingers and Blazin' Saddles. Mel Brooks is so money.

    I saw that once. It was very Fellini-esque.

    I rewatched 'Tomorrow Never Dies' - Elliot Carver had a tablet - in 1997! Long before Apple invented them... :)

    Coincidentally,I've just been watching Reality Bites with Ethan Hawke in it. He's a bit of a pretentious d-bag in that,but then I suppose he is like that in quite a few movies...

    "Never let me go". I wish I had the patience to find the book, where I had made it to page 54 previously, and finished the book instead.

    Never liked the Alien(s) movies. I always questions how they could be alive when their blood was made of acid that could literally eat through any kind of metal.

    Watch "Taxi" 1998

    Haha, i saw that in the theater. You nailed it. Just a character, but that is the period i did not like him and avoided dead poets society.

    Then, because of him, i was negative on "before sunrise" even though it was good.

    I think because of linklater, hawke grew on me this past few years. Now i am really proud of the two of them.

    really :confused:

    i'm surprised you would let something like that trouble you so much.

    besides having creative license to pretty much do anything you want when making a movie. i think the whole alien acid thing is dutifully enough explained and/or has similar examples in nature to be to be sufficiently credible.

    does it surprise you that venomous snakes can live even though venom is flowing somewhere in/throughout their body???

    It was okay it you want a popcorn flick. CGI didn't look that great. Lots of product placement. Some might have problems with the female lead's character arc from stone cold business biatch to learning to love from the male lead/dying dinos/nephews. But Chris Pratt tho.

    Don't think any sequel will come close to Jurassic Park.

    The cinematography was amazing though, especially those underwater scenes with the water-monster..

    Jurrasic World - Not bad. The ending could have been better. It was like watching mini Godzillas fighting.

    Also watched Jurassic World. Quite entertaining. Spoiler here - That Liopleurodon behemoth was so cool. Best creature in the movie. I just knew it was going to finish off that Hybrid.

    But their bodies aren't made out of metal. Acids of all kinds can be stored in a variety of materials - from plastics to glass to metals. As far fetched at the Alien scenario was it's hardly they aspect of the whole premise which should be scrutinised.

    Asking questions like that of sci-fi which is so far departed from the real world is sort of a pointless exercise. Alien and Aliens are two of the great sci-fi films.

    Some Like It Hot - Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, Marilyn Monroe.

    Saw it a year or so back. Seeing it again. Really good. (Thanks to a comment in the Unborn Nadal thread).

    One of the funnies movies I've ever seen !

    Must see that next.

    Just saw "Inside Out". Despite good reviews- it was a very tedious movie.

    Add Ender's Game to your list. It's one of the worst films I've ever seen. It makes John Carter look like Shawshank Redemption.

    Paul Newman, Jessica Tandy.

    Psycho - 1960. Hitchcock. I've seen it before but seems I'd forgotten most of the details.

    Great movie, except for the long psychiatrist's speech at the end. Maybe it was required in those days ?

    Just watched Get Hard starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. Hilarious. One of my favourite types of humour. One of my favourite films that starred Will Ferrell (other than Step Brothers). Similar kind of humour actually...

    I've heard the remake was bad/pathetic.

    Just started Knock on Wood (1954). Danny Kaye.

    "Slow West". Really good movie. It's a Western but not a typical western. Has a lot of Coen Brothers type humor in it. Great characters, great story (don't read any reviews - many of them give away the story), and brilliant acting by Michael Fassbender etc.
