The Game(1997). I like Michael Douglas but found this film a bit of a mess
Saw the new Tom Cruise movie (Edge of Tomorrow). I thought it was OK, a bit too much Groundhog Day but all in all a fine film.
Saw Xmen 2 nights ago, very awesome story and movie, opens up a huge world of possibilities.
This counts as a movie, right? Two thumbs up, two big toes up!
You've put this in three threads in 11 seconds. Settle down..
I wasn't enthralled with Winter Soldier at all! Is this much better?
Just got home from watching 'neighbors'. Hilarious...but that type of comedy isn't for everyone.
haha ! I just noticed that, too.
Who is that gif of?
Thought Jeepers Creepers 2 was better than 1, which was really good. Looking forward to 3.
Oh yea that was fun. Can't wait for the third!
Insidious 2... Absolutely hated myself for watching this enjoyable movie because I was scared the whole time. :evil: I thought the haunting was better than the 1st one too.
Also watched Neighbors, it was pretty funny.
If you have seen the previous XMEN then yes you will love it, if you like First Class you will really like Future Past.....and there is a very end of credit scene so don't leave early.
The suresh Master Class Forehand gif is destined to be in every thread, in every forum on the internet, so you best get used to it. :grin:
Thanks, won't be leaving early.
Saw Maleficent today. Its crap.
Yes me too. I have seen number 2 much more than 1, and I saw it first as well.
Hmm, I disagree there. Yes it was really good, but more haunting than the first? IMO, I dont think so...
Saw Splice. Started off as sci-fi-ish but then became a horror movie, a lot like Species without a sexy lady.
I just can't get excited about blockbusters anymore. Prefer the smaller budget movies that take out all the BS.
Naked (1993). Stunning film by Mike Leigh,one of the best of the 90s.
Saw Godzilla. Disjointed. Meandering. Poor character and monster development. Only rated 2 lobs out of 5.
Upstream Color - Interesting movie from the guy who made Looper. But quite tough to follow at times.
Wolfcreek 2 - intense but too gory.
I hear there's a sequel on the way. I'm looking to seeing Godzilla show up in that one.
Being There with Peter Sellers
New xmen movie. Fantastic
Second this. If Jolie wasn't in it, would not have even been a movie at all. Awful even with her.
so this EDGE of Tomorrow as GOOD as critics and reviews say it is ??????? they are talking like this is the BEST movie of the summer and possibly the Year.
like I said,,,, they should have given Godzilla Character and Personality and ability to Talk. and it needs to talk to humans and be able to love
Right, since it was made for kids.......that makes sense
What is the Movie, "Intersteller" all about ??
I thought it was good, IDK about best movie of the year good. My friend I went with said X Men and Godzilla were better.
LOL, I was told that Godzilla was a Predictable flop..................
So how many people watched the Great movie of the summer,,,,EDGE of tomorrow ?????
OK I just watched the EDGE of Tomorrow........GREATEST movie ever made in history of movies. Very exciting and very funny and very unpredictable............I give it 7 out of 5 stars.
Really?.. I haven't watched it yet cause it has Tom Cruise in it...
Please watch it.. it is insane good. his support cast was amazing as well.
Alright... I'll give it a go. I have heard good reviews about it though so maybe....
I watched Godzilla, Days of Future Past and Edge of Tomorrow. First 2 were good but EoT was fantastic. Funny, great acting, everything. A must watch.
Edge of Tomorrow
Silly "Grounding Day" premise, a stretch even by sci-fi standards. Action sequences are a little frenetic so we never get much of a feel for why these creatures care about earth, nor how Cruise became a major knowing nothing about combat. See it as a last resort.
he explains it to the general. he only worked desk jobs and working on recruiting troops and doing logistics. You can get promoted pretty high doing only that in the army
how many Oscars has Tom Cruise won ? He is such a great actor, one of the best in history, I might add.
None. He's a good actor who has had some great roles,but he was never the standout in any particular year
There is a reason why he hasn't won any Oscars... he is a fan favourite, THAT IS ALL...
How often have we heard you raving about something like this, dear Nostrademouse
I take it this is a movie best avoided.
Tom Cruise acting in a movie is a good enough reason for me to avoid it. Wikipedia calls it a "military sci-fi" movie and military along with sci-fi is another compelling reason not to see it.
We've been subjected to enough dumb sci-fi movies where the government /army goes around killing aliens mindlessly/with glee.
this is kind of comment that I don't take you seriously. HERE is the comment from critics.
"Gripping, well-acted, funny, and clever, Edge of Tomorrow offers entertaining proof that Tom Cruise is still more than capable of shouldering the weight of a blockbuster action thriller".
AND one of the Highest Ratings ever.
and Tom Cruise deserves a Oscar for best Actor. he is one of the best actors in our generation and richly deserves an Oscar. He had been screwed by too many insiders
Cruise's go-to reaction is to flash his toothy grin, and he does it a few times in this film when it makes no sense to do so. He's a fair actor but hardly exceptional, and some of the best reviews I read about this film after seeing it (e.g. in The New Yorker) suggest that its biggest failing is Cruise's constricted emotional reactions to everything he goes through.
Tom Cruise is an exceptional actor. He's the kind of guy, I really don't want to like. Everythign about his personal life is scary to me in terms of his beliefs lol. But his resume is self-explanatory.
A Few Good Men
The Last Samurai
are the only three I'd need to refer to to have his vote as one of my favorites, nvm all of the MI movies, Vanilla Sky, Top Gun, Minority Report, Rain Man, Collateral or the hialrious Tropic Thunder. Need I go on?
Even if these aren't Oscar roles, the dude has been killing it for 20+ years.
