    Klute (1971) - Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland. Interesting crime thriller.

    Great movie, watched it when I was a teen but could not remember any of it. Maybe the best movie featuring Sir Connery (even though the Bond series has a cult status).
    Made in 1986, no surprise it won a Best Make Up prize the movie looks so realistic. Highly recommended :)

    Yeah it was a worthy entry in the series, but not one of the best. I actually liked Storm more than I thought I would, and Cyclops was cool too. Apocalypse himself was the one missing something for me.

    Quicksilver made the movie for me lol :) I love how long that scene was.

    I enjoyed it.

    Of course, being a huge Walter White fan helped :D

    Watched it a few months ago, as cruel as it can be. There is something quite unique about those Korean movies, very far from Gangnam style here!

    The Conjuring 2, scarier than LBJ and his Cadavers 3 pt shooting. Is anybody there that wishes to make a shot??? Move their feet? Pass the ball? The movie is on point, seriously

    p.s. So were the Cavaliers Game 5

    Blade Runner (1982). Such a great movie, yet I fall asleep every time I watch it.

    There is something soporific about that (great) movie I agree. Probably the absence of lights (if not count the final scene).

    Spy 2015. Dont't rate it as funny or as highly as some of the reviews on Smellytomatoes. Still enjoyed it, some almost very funny lines. On the downside Jason Statham's London-gangster-Cockney-Geezer act is far too stale.

    Taxi Driver,
    Such an amazing film. De Niro and Keitel are two of my all time favourite actors.

    The Conjuring 2. Walked out 1.5 hrs into it. about as boring as a CBS made for TV film.

    Please don't read if you intend to see the film but I hope you do its probably the best movie I have seen in years and years.

    I think its a limited run film in North America.
    https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/the_wailing/

    This thread is for those who want to answer some questions for me.

    1. Why did the little girl apparently visit the young lady in white? We saw the pink headwear on the ground.
    2. Just who the heck is the young lady in white? We know the Japanese man was not evil but a Shaman trying to rid the evils in the town. Why did she say don't go back home cause you're whole family will die to the cop?
    3. The Japanese man came from the dead to do what?? He was killed and came back as an evil spirit. Who put the evil into him. Did the evil spirit leave the girl after she killed her mom and grandmother? So that would mean the young lady in white was never evil but a someone who has a 6th sense?
    4. In the end the cop is still alive holding his kid who killed his wife and grandmother. So now the evil spirit the Japanese Shaman tried to get rid of is WHERE?? The young lady predicted his whole family would die, 2 are alive? Could the spirit come back to another person and killed them both. Of course this would lead to Wailing 2.

    Clue me in. This film has an open book ending.

    Stupid storyline but funny in some parts which makes it watchable but I probably wouldn't go watch it again unless there was nothing else on tv!

    I just saw this move called "Good Kill".

    HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended! Very powerful movie. And it gives you a better perspective on the war on terror.

    Yes. It's much better than typical Asian horror flick. It mentally takes you away from the same old same old. But do yourself a favor see it in the theater.

    Whirlpool (1949) psychological thriller. A kleptomaniac and a hypnotist. Interesting movie.


    Gentlemen prefer Blondes (1953) - Jane Russell, Marilyn Monroe. Fun comedy, nice songs.

    Cat Ballou (1965) - comedy western with Jane Fonda, Lee Marvin.

    Fun, light movie.

    (Tried to see High Fidelity 2000, but ditched after 30 mins, too boring)

    Diner (1982)

    Just not my thing.

    Visually it's great, but it's essentially a war movie with humour as well as patriotism laid on with a trowel. The music by Prokieff raises the film greatly.

    The Glass Key (1942) - Veronica Lake, Alan Ladd, Brian Donlevy.

    Interesting crime movie with some political backdrop

    The Conjuring Part 2. Good shock value but cheesy and derivative.

    Ivan the Terrible Parts 1 and 2 - brilliant film - and he was not so terrible. The usual struggle between a modernising monarchical state and the landed aristocracy.

    The first part is the political rise, whereas the second is more of a domestic drama. All Ivan's worst political moves would have been in Part 3 and that was not made.
