    I liked it too :) just watched 2 weeks ago.

    Saw the new Mad Max last night, it was a good popcorn movie, but nothing to shout about. Some intense scenes though.

    Is there any movie similar to " No Country for Old Men". Since 2007 have not found anything like it.

    New lady in my life. So felt like seeing a chick flick.
    THE AGE OF ADALINE
    Not for me, sticking with films they at least will raise your blood pressure some.

    I thought Christian Bale played Bates in the remake. Don't remember.

    Recently watched Escape From New York again (hence the new avatar :)). And last night I watched Enter the Dragon after seeing it was on TCM.

    Finished Knock on Wood. Pretty nice. Finishes very suddenly, though.

    Saw it a month back. Loved it.

    I saw Escape from New York and the other one, was it Escape from LA. Both were crap IMO.

    Escape from LA is the sequel, yes. Not for everyone obviously... Snake Plissken is a badass though :)

    Safety Last (1923) Great silent film,I think I actually prefer it to anything I've seen of Chaplin or Keaton...

    I watched San Andreas last weekend. Alexandra Daddario is really hot (yeah, no kidding) , but the rest of the movie is instantly forgettable. The only time I think of it is when somebody else brings it up.

    Just watched the latest Terminator today. My score? A solid 7/10. The mood is totally different from the two first movies. It is lighter, more shallow, but still fun. The story is original (unlike T3), but nothing great. In the end, I think this was slightly better than T3. I own T1 and T2 on Blu-Ray, never were interested in buying T3 or T4. But I'll probably buy Genisys when it drops to $10, in a year or so.

    Saw two movies recently-- Me And Earl and the Dying Girl, and Dope. Dying Girl was funny, quicky, nihilistic, hopeful, and clever. Dope was none of those things.

    Watched The Amazing Spider Man for second time overall to refresh since I'm watching the second tomorrow. I think it's overall a solid Spider-Man movie; it had its distinctness from the previous trilogy, and the action, web swinging, and pace were good. I didn't mind the spider suit, in fact I did like it. Garfield's spider-man is of course I think, a different rendition, which I found pretty cool.

    Yup, I did like the movie.

    Terminator Genisys! 9/10

    I must say the only one that was crap was Salvation, thank you that this one was as good as the first 3!
    All I can say is that if you love the Teminator movies you must go see this on the big screen!!!

    Sightseers - Chris wants to show girlfriend Tina his world, but events soon conspire against the couple and their dream caravan holiday takes a very wrong turn.
    A black comedy. It was alright, but I wouldn't recommend it to people who get offended easily.

    American Sniper. The movie covered tough subject material and was fairly well done. I think it missed some chances here and there to be quite a bit better, yet I thought it was worth watching.

    The Amazing Spider Man 2; first off, I'm a fan of seeing comic book/super-hero adaptations being made in live action. I did indeed enjoy it, but I must say I felt this movie was somewhat of a let down.

    Oh yeah! Agree 100%. Nice eyes, too.
    _______________________

    Went to the theater for the first time in years. Saw Inside Out. I was a little surprised they didn't take the politically correct route and instead perpetuated a stereotype by imaging the character Joy as tall, thin and attractive while the character Sadness was short, chunky and generally unattractive. Good movie.

    Have you seen Night Watch? Both are underrated takes on the vampire thing.

    No, I read about these years ago & hit that *Record* button so fast when I saw the listing. Great thing is the *lack* of vampirism, which can be uh, draining. FX were much appreciated.

    Binging on animated movies, being summer and kids and all... Saw The Minions tonight. One of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. I was thinking to myself, during the movie, that the cast gets together at some point after production wraps, and they view the finished product. They had to look at each other and say, "well, that's a pile of hot garbage..."

    Then they go happily cash their checks.

    Couldn't agree more. And it's different enough from the original 3 to not seem overdone.

    Story confused to the point of incoherence (time travel can't make up for EVERY screenplay shortcoming), indifferent acting, cheesier and cheaper looking special effects than other Terminator films, we only went because the other 3 films showing were cartoons.
