    Jason Bourne...very disappointing. Big fan of the Bourne movies but this had nothing new really, just a bunch of recycled stuff from the previous movies and lots of unnecessary scenes. I thought since Damon and Paul Greengrass were back on the project it would be something special but it really just felt like a cash grab.

    The Revenant…excellent movie. I had heard that there were a lot of slow and tedious parts but the movie seemed to move along quickly and was very entertaining. Beautiful camerawork and scenery.

    The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2015) - Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Dev Patel, Bill Nighy.

    Quite funny. Indian movies just have to have a flashy wedding with lots of dance, do they ? Wondering whether Western audiences love those dance sequences.

    did not see star trek, Saw the Terminus,,so so movie, kind of ok. it is another end of the world movie. I think if we don't improve and keep on this path, probably not a bad idea.....lol I give that 3.5 out of 5 stars.

    like to see Star trek... will see if my tennis buddies wants to go see it this weekend. but have a feeling we will be too busy with league matches....trying to make the playoffs............LOL

    Saw it at the flicks, first time at home.
    Really enjoyed it. I'm a sucker for these sort of movies.

    Brooklyn Nine Nine
    One of my fave sitcoms, silly, but good natured in general.
    Love all the characters issues.

    Stunning, sickening, sad. Numb for a half hour after it ended.

    I'm a massive middle aged comic book nerd.
    Quite enjoyed this. Not as epic as Batman v Superman. Solid start of a franchise, though villain was too pretty to be scary, though.
    Music usage was exceptional, loved Margot Robbie & Leto Joker was cool, plus that cameo was spot on [B.A.]

    I've just seen Bourne. I wanted to really like it but the story here has been played out in the first 3 movies. I wanted something fresh. Agree with you on all parts. Based on the ending, if they do make another, it will be going forward in a new direction.

    Do you mean drop the movie version Suicide Squad on terrorists or make a real CIA styled Trump endorsed "USA! USA! Suicide Squad USA, USA!'
    Or drop that Margot Robbie at my holiday spot for a couple of weeks or R & R?

    I think we should drop USB bombs of some of the worst movies ever in the hot spots,
    so they get scared & come to The Evil West (that's a good/bad movie name)

    Waking Ned Devine 1998 - Interesting, touching movie about some old people in a village in Ireland (shot in the Isle of Man). Ian Bannen and David Kelly play their roles very well.

    Someone in the small village has won a lotto and these two friends try to figure out who has. Soon the entire village is in on it.

    Watched the Ultimate Cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

    Didn't watch the original theatrical cut as I wasn't able to find the time.

    Awesome film. I'm sure if they had released that version to cinemas, it would have received far better reviews.

    The story for the most part makes perfect sense--even the infamous "Martha" scene becomes a little more coherent. Not saying that the scene is fixed though. Still has a few flaws here and there, but the story is quite compelling now.

    Kinda wish they cut out the Doomsday bit and added another fight in the middle where Batman gets his butt handed to him by Supes, which then results in the final fight where Bats kicks the **** out of Supes in the end.

    It would be difficult to shoehorn Wonder Woman into that story arc though.

    Dad (1989) - Jack Lemmon, Olympia Dukakis, Ted Danson, Kevin Spacey, Ethan Hawke.

    Let's just say I had a lump in my throat and wet eyes throughout. Young busy executive finds his father is ill and needs taking care of. He gets sucked into it, and there's a lot of male bonding stuff -- dad, son, grandson bonding. Jack Lemmon is the old man and he really moved me.

    Probably be a bit much for the younger crowd here so YMMV. btw, Spacey and Hawke are really young here. Ted Danson is the guy from Cheers.

    Man, I've watched shamefully and depressingly few movies as of late. Not enough time — or rather, not been taking enough time.

    Anyways, just recently watched The Big Short, which was pretty good. Some good performances in there by Bale, Carell, Pitt and Gosling. Bit over the top on the financial lingo, but I suppose that's par for the course with such a movie. Some clever use of editing and breaking the narrative, which added some good comic effect.

    Also watched The Royal Tenenbaums which I enjoyed a bit more. Wes Anderson knows how to make quirky characters and tell stories that teeter on the edge between earnestness and absurdity. Just generally a clever director, which I enjoy. His introductions are the best:

    The Savages (2007) - Laura Linney, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    A brother and sister try to get together to look after their father who is slipping into dementia. The movie is quite unsparing in its portrayal of dementia (unlike most other movies i have seen which try to make it look respectable).

    Somehow forced myself through an hour of Sherlock (2009).

    Extremely disappointing, it's been made into some kind of thriller, seems like a hash of various thrillers :( Not sure I am going to finish this piece of crap tonight.

    Watched that last year in an aeroplane. Poor Sureshs had a date with Madge Hardcastle in the wedding party but there was another man meeting her at the same time and she ran away lol.

    I also watched the first movie when it came out.

    Loved that scene where a boy helping this old expat working as a tour guide by using walkie talkie and internet then they lost connection and the expat didn't know what to say.

    Stupid chap could have just recorded his notes onto his iPhone (tiny shuffle) and used that. But i guess the funny incidents would not have occurred then.

    Excellent performances by Jeff Bridges, Ben Foster and Chris Pine enliven this near-thriller. In theatres presently.

    The Snows of Kilimanjaro (1952) = I am usually a sucker for old movies, but found this a bit too tiring and pointless.


    A writer and the various women he falls in love with.
    Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner and Susan Hayward. The hyena probably acted better than the others, lol.
    Based on a book by Ernest Hemingway.

    Winter's Bone (2011) - Jennifer Lawrence. Very tough life of a girl raising her family in the Ozark, deals with the meth culture. Intense, bleak, riveting, good performances.

    Brought back memories of Out of the Furnace, a crime movie probably set in the same area, and also Where the Red Fern Grows.

    I don't understand how they are trying to make this story dramatic enough to make a full scale movie out of it o_O

    I don't remember there being any drama/scandal at all when it came to Sully. he was treated, and rightfully so as far as I can tell, like a hero.

    does the movie reveal some crazy behind the scene conspiracy or something?

    Actually you've got a point.
    I don't remember much controversy either.

    But hey, the movie's pretty good anyway. You could just say it was fictional or something and it'd be great. I'm happy.

    Boxcar Bertha - 1972. Scorsese's second film.

    A girl on the run from the law with her boyfriend.

    Watched The Big Lebowski. Obviously somewhat of a cult classic with some memorable bits of dialogue. Good performances in there by Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, P.S. Hoffman and Julianne Moore. Good visuals. Storyline not the strongest IMO, but then again the lack of real plot seems to be the very style of this film.. Definitely funny.
