    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.

    My Dinner With Andre(1981). Never gets old,all it is is 2 guys talking for almost 2 hours and it beats the pants off almost every big blockbuster since 1981...

    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.

    Nobody's Fool - 1994 - nice film, sweet story about an old man in a small town.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.
