    thanks for warning me about train wreck.

    My elder bro told me that I should watch Mad Max in the theater, then i will enjoy it, it's fun. I cannot imagine how a movie I could not get through even 30 minutes of, would suddenly be fun in the theater !

    Under duress I saw Mad Max and thought it was good. The payback for this will be Footloose.

    Enjoyed it; it was a fun movie and had good action sequences, and other good moments, though a little too comedic at times. Overall, it doesn't fit my preferences in superhero movies, but it's still solid.

    Yeah that one was really good. I watched it in the theaters and then again on the plane to Australia.

    I also just recently watched The Martian, Sicario, and Evert. All were pretty darn good. Sicario was a bit dark, but really good. It was a welcome surprise seeing Jeffrey Donovan in that movie.

    I though the Martian was really good, I definitely enjoyed that one from start to finish. I thought Matt Damon was really good.

    I mean if you like Amy Schumer I guess it'd be okay, but personally I couldn't stand her. I thought wow, here's someone I just don't care for at all. She's not super attractive, yet acts like she is. And honestly the whole raunchy go way to far comedy to me is just so played out. Plus it has LeBron in the movie, someone else I can't stand.

    Agreed. Trainwreck was lame. Raunchy isn't funny anymore. Law of diminishing returns. Same reason why Book of Mormon didn't do it for me. 90 minutes of dick jokes for $200 doesn't do it for me.

    15 seconds of suresh gif gives me more sustainable pleasure.

    Julie and Julia (2009) - About the lives of Julia Child who wrote a book called Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and Julie Powell who tried out every recipe and blogged about it.

    Light movie. Meryl Streep, Amy Adams.

    You are fortunate to be a sureshsexual, not that there's anything good about that.

    It wasn't as good as the first one, but it was still entertaining, which I guess is the point. It's not going to pride itself on the plot.

    "Hail, Caesar"

    A dud from the Coen brothers. Happens now and then. No narrative, characters come and go, very few laughs.

    Finally got to see Birdman. Fantastic, loved it. Is it me or was that nasty critic modeled on Pauline Kael?
