'Hanna Arendt ' Very special film about a Jewish journalist of German descent covering the trial in Jerusalem
of Adolf Eichmann for the New Yorker. The trial of the century.
The Eyes will make me do whatever she wants.
'Fog of War' Documentary about Robert Mcnamara and the Vietnam war
Just got back from watching San Andreas. Hilarious!
Flight Of The Storks (2012)
Mini series murder conspiracy invloving various seedy dangerous travel destinations. I found it quite odd, radical & enjoyable.
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.
The Dead Girl (2006)
It's good, fellas.
Very powerful and sad.
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.
pretty good even with its flaws...
kind of more excited to see what part 2 will be like...
Been wanting to see it for years - not disappointed.
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.
Snakes On A Plane!
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.
Amazing true story. That make me more eager to buy a dog
Couldn't agree more. And it's different enough from the original 3 to not seem overdone.
Great and funny horror movie:
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.
Who wrote that script? Judges never got a chance to ruin this epic night.
Dana White, he instructed Rory to not know what year it was after his fight.
Awesome. Just awesome.
In the Air
Was kind of meh
Jurassic World. Fine entertainment, but nothing beats the first Jurassic Park!
Look at you, you're ******* walking around like John Barrymore! A ******* pink robe.
Watched Self/Less in theaters today and Kill The Messenger on BR last night. Paz Vega is hot!!!
And I have only seen it once but the scene in Drag Me To Hell where the woman pukes on the girl was funny. I think it's from the scene shown above
Upon multiple viewings it's solidified as one of my fav scifi films, surely in the top 10.
Saw the movie, "Amy"- an OK documentary about Amy Winehouse. Kind of a "downer"- but that was to be expected.
To Kill A Mockingbird - seeing it again after two years. Nice.
Reminds me of an old friend of mine, who like a mockingbird, brought much joy to this forum but was sentenced to the hammer. FoD.
delete duplicate post.
House by the River (1950) - Fritz Lang. Interesting mystery/murder movie.
Night Train To Lisbon - 2013 - Jeremy Irons.
Loved the movie. It's about a professor who goes to Lisbon on a very interesting adventure.
I was surprised as to how interesting this movie was. I was mesmerized and am already thinking I need to see this again sometime. Sadly, seems some critics have panned it as having an outmoded style, and not enough tension. This movie seems to have gone unnoticed.
Saw 'Strangers on a Train' after a long time again. The genius of Hitchcock lives on.
Yup, now that reminds me of The Rope. And Shadow of Doubt. And so many more. Just saw Psycho a few days back for the 3rd time, and Vertigo a month back for the 2nd.
Must see Strangers again soon
I started watching Harry Potter this week.
Goblet of fire up next.
Such brilliant films! It's been a while since I've seen Vertigo. The one shot take in The Rope still amazes me! Hitchcock was a master.
EDIT: Just saw your sig. Rust Cohle is the man. True Detective fan? I LOVED the first season. Are you watching the second?
Finally saw Interstellar (on my laptop). I know a lot of people here have panned it, but somehow it did like it.
The only thing I have against the movie is the rather prolonged docking sequence. I mean we've seen that kind of stuff a dozen times in other sci-fi movies. What's the point ?
Just saw Dial M for Murder after a couple years. The kind of movie I can rewatch every 2-3 years.
Nope I saw S1 but it didn;t click with me. Don't like that occult/supernatural thingie.
