    Jurassic World. Fine entertainment, but nothing beats the first Jurassic Park!

    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

    Oblivion (2013)
    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    Saw 'Amy' a documentary about what became the tragic life of Amy Whitehouse. I was surprised how moved I was by it. What a tormented genius she was. My regrets about working too hard during her prime years, much like I was during Federer's, came to the surface. I should have made time for more fun during those years and gone to see one of her gigs. A very touching scene was when she was singing a recorded duet with one of her idols Tony Bennett. 9/10

    It's very stellar.

    Seen many Hitchcock's? Remarkable how many great pictures he made.

    Hitchcock was a great director for sure. Amazing he never won the Academy Award. That goes to show you how much those awards really mean.

    Ted 2. Wasn't as good as the first one, but still entertaining and hilarious. Not all people will find it funny of course. One of the scenes in there was rather nasty though, LOL. Funny, but had me dry retching through it.
    That hideous sperm scene
    Usually anything nasty or gore related wouldn't get a reaction like this, but it was just the fact that I was freaking eating and drinking in the cinema!
    Not to mention Mark Wahlberg's semen covered face

    Hitchcock is hands down one of my favourite directors. So many masterpieces. Even his lesser films are entertaining.

    If pushed I think I would put Vertigo as my number 1.
    1. Vertigo
    2. North by Northwest
    3. Rear Window
    4. Shadow of a Doubt
    5. Strangers on a Train

    But to be honest by list changes every week because his films are just damn good.

    Awesome stuff. I worked in San Francisco for a couple of years, and I am familiar with some of the Vertigo filming locations. As a matter of fact, I worked close to the SF Bay, and you could easily see the Golden Gate on a clear day.

    Now that I think about it, I've also visited the Rushmore monument. LOL!

    I watched Strangers on a Train when I was a young boy, and some of the images/scenes are still engraved in my mind. Like when the antihero (forget his name) loses it in the party and almost strangulates that lady. When one of the main characters is desperately trying to reach that engraved lighter (I think it's a lighter) through the sewer grill plate. Not to mention the last scene in the Merry-Go-Round, with that old feller crawling under the structure risking his life to stop it when it goes out of control. That take at the "Tunnel of Love" ride or whatever was when the guy kills the girl with the glasses and the camera shoots through her glasses when they have fallen to the ground is also classic.

    Yeah so many classic scenes in that film. The tunnel of love ride is particularly engraved in my mind. There is tennis too haha.

    Atonement - 2007.

    Keira Knightley.
    Vanessa Redgrave and Cumberpatch has small roles.
    Interesting, saddish romantic, war drama. One Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and several nominations.

    Wolf Of Wall Street - not great, though when he gets paralysed is probably the highlight of the movie for me besides that there's not much else great about it

    Want to see Bajrangi Bhaijaan but the two theaters in which it is running here are a little drive away. The nearest one is still showing Bahubali.

    Thanks to your mention, I watched Good Will Hunting last night. (Saw it a few years back on telly). Man, this movie has a record number of f-bombs! One or two per sentence. Makes In Bruges seem pedestrian, lol.

    And it has Robin WIlliams :)

    The Book Thief - 2013.

    I found it very interesting and beautiful. About the lives of some ordinary Germans during the Na2i era. From the pov of some children.

    I just saw Ted 2 last Wednesday. Haven't seen the first one but I thought 2 was hilarious. Definitely a stoner movie.

    It was really really good, I don't understand what the critics are on about if you love those movies you must go see it at the movies do not hesitate it's a 9/10 for me, I would go see it a 2nd time even!
