    Watch Zodiac last night (Gyllenhaal, Downey Jr. & Ruffalo). Though the prime suspect suffered a fatal heart attack in the early 90s after being identified by one of the (supposedly) Zodiac's victim 22 years later. However, DNA test in conducted in 2004 proved inconclusive. Unsolved.

    Melville's last film before his death, Un Flic (A cop). Alain Delon and Catherine Deneuve, Richard Crenna. Melville's world of cops and criminals, 2 heists, one in real-time. Although not among his best movies, but still a pleasure to watch.

    True Detective - not strictly a movie, but hey its a movie stretched out into several episodes. I've seen three episodes and it seems thin to be stretched out over three hours. Came highly recommended to me, and i expected some neat, clever detection but i am let down at present. Harrelson and McConney (sp) are good in it.

    However, why does a detective series have almost an entire episode dedicated to the troubled family life of one cop ? Haven;t i seen that already enough ? The typical wife of cop on the verge of leaving him thing, all the way from Serpico.

    I am currently seeing Breaking Bad.

    Pretty intense, the family discussion in S1 E5.

    Watching tv series House Of Cards, a lot like company politics--very much alike--everyone wants to be in the box seat before pressing the button to unleash the power beneath at the right (best possible) time.:-|

    What were you expecting, Transformers? I think they were trying to produce a more meaningful movie than something to chew popcorn to. Which they did. Amazing performances and movie overall.

    Europa Report (2013) - how a sci-fi movie should be. No zombies, no fights with aliens, no Bruce Willis or Brad Pitt.

    This is not a popcorn flick, btw. It's a pretty serious movie in the "found footage" style.

    A privately funded mission to Europa with disastrous results but a very motivated team.

    Sentinel, I watch Europa Report a couple months back...most missions doesn't end well and this is one of them. However, I find it to be a bit lacking...maybe it's just me.

    I watch Disconnect last night.

    Disconnect in this wired world of ours.

    What's more, i liked the scientific mindset of the people shown, their overriding thirst for knowledge. No silly politics taking over everything, or egos fighting each other, or the silly Bruce Willis cowboy stuff as in Armageddon or was it Deep impact ? None of the Will Smith heroics.

    These were scientists on a mission, just like the first Rendezvous with Rama novel. Not some trigger-happy cowboys put onto a spaceship on some mission with loads of dynamite and machine-guns.

    Anyway, to each his own. I really needed this to take my mind away from BB.

    I have Wolf of Wall Street but I keep finding other things to do. I'm saving it for when I can really enjoy it, I've heard nothing but great things.

    I was set to yesterday but had to watch Dolgo dispatch of Rafa, what a match!
    Back to the movies folks. :)

    You've obviously not read the thread on WOWS. Be sure to read it after seeing WOWS.

    Its basically a story of how the US came to be involved in Viet Nam. The names are changed of course. But, its so worth watching to see a young Marlon Brando at work. The way he commands a scene is just amazing. 8/10

    Yup, we did discuss it a few months back, iirc, before you went off to the North Pole or Scotland or wherever.:)

    Tense drama about an Israeli agent and his Palestinian recruit. Directed by an Israeli, it typifies the current view of the Israeli left which is very sympathetic to the Palestinian view. Well made.

    I LOVEEEEE the Justice League animation series. Binge watched all seasons within 2 weeks. Then, saw Justice League War the other night... Totally disappointed. All the characters in War are out of wack. Even Superman drawing is wrong, ie bulky, no neck. :(

    Saw Redford's movie, about him alone on a boat that got hit by a container floating at sea.
    I was quicker in EVERY reaction than him, and knew some things he didn't...like stay spread eagled tying yourself IN at the bottom of your rescure raft, knew how to get water from the ocean enviorment, and how to really patch the hole so it wouldn't get worse.
    He was kinda slow thinking, very uneducated in boating skills.

    It had it's flaws and it didn't develop all the characters right, plus it was a cliche style movie. But I still really enjoyed wolf of wall street a lot.

    Same here, I thought it was better than the first. I have not read any of the books unlike Game of Thrones and I’m finding I kinda like being surprised by how the story is unfolding. However it is so hard not reading the books.
