    Divergent (2104)

    Sort of like Hunger Games.

    Watched it for about 10 minutes and decided to ride my bike!;) These are the kind of movies I'd rather read.

    I watched over an hour of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes but finally gave up. Really bad. Pathetic, in fact.

    Why can;t they EVER think of something more original than humans wiping out other species ?

    Humans getting wiped out by others species? Nah,probably been done as well. I agree,I'm not fussed on fastasy,sci-fi etc. I prefer dramas based on real people,the humans condition

    Tim Burton tried to re-do an 'Apes' film but made a pigsear of it. I don't know why they bother. Its like the later Star Wars films; these are films that have a place in history and are of their time. There's nothing to improve upon.

    The latest film I saw was Olympus Fallen. Good action film, but basically a re-hash of Die Hard.

    I actually still refuse to acknowledge Rocky V. To me, the franchise ended with Rocky IV.

    Yeah that one was ok. It has one of the best lines in any film...something like "it's not about how many times you get knocked down, it's about how many times you get back up"......something like that.

    Which is of course totally incorrect. In most boxing matches if you get knocked down 3 times in a round it's a TKO, so getting back up the third time is pointless.

    He obviously wasnt referring to a single bout.. Its been some time since ive seen it, but dont think he was even referring to boxing, but life in general :) You know Rocky can be pretty deep :lol:

    Watched Pi for the first time after much goading by hipster college kids.

    Wasn't impressed.

    No movies of late. Have just begun watching a TV series called Extant.

    (It has the Looper kid in it, and Halle Berry)


    Nothing worth recommending.

    Watched a bunch of the Rambo movies today. Before that I watched the first Terminator when it came on. Terminator 2 was my favorite of the two growing up, but I probably appreciate the first one more now.

    James Bond 007 Skyfall.

    After all the praise I heard, I am disappoint. Seemed like your regular, run of the mill action movie. Big explosions, vehicles chases etc. Was pretty bored.

    Before that watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Really enjoyed it, could've been a little shorter though.

    I thought Skyfall was pretty good, but no where near as good as Casino Royale.

    It was a decent movie for the kids...I "went along" with two six-year old girls and a nine-year old boy...they all loved it!

    The Mirror has Two Faces - Barbra Striesand, Jeff Bridges and Lauren Bacall, Brosnan.

    Laughed a lot, and found it touching too. A romantic comedy where the characters examine true love.
    Looking at the old Bacall, could not help remembering the young one.

    p.s. i got this movie in memory of Bacall who passed away recently.

    The Trip to Italy

    If you liked "The Trip" -- and I did -- you'll like this as well. Brydon and Coogan banter their way around Italy, and the result is often hilarious and sometimes thought-provoking.

    Been watching a bit of the TV series The Strain. Unfortunately, the so-called sci-fi genre just cannot get out of repeating the same cliches.





    Sort of Spoiler:




    It's basically the same Zombie, Alien/Species thing done all over again, with perhaps some more medical details.

    Funny movie, enjoyed. Good performances.

    Beautiful background and scenery.

    Coherence (2013) - low budget scifi movie. Interesting.

    If you liked movies like The Man from Earth, and Primer, you should like this.

    Watched Divergent last week and it was actually pretty good. Great story line and had a good amount of action. Just got done reading the book and found out it is the first one in a trilogy series! I'll probably end up reading the other two as well :p

    I hope you're talking about the TV series as Avatar the Last Airbender movie was beyond horrible......honestly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. The TV series was phenomenal though, also the new one The Legend of Korra is actually really great too and all of the episodes get shown online which is even better.

    The Strain

    Yes, i know. Even i am quite addicted to it, there's another episode tonight, which will be loaded on the torrents by tomorrow.

    Can't wait.

    On the other hand, Extant is really disappointing me. They just don't seem to have a story, and are dragging it out.

    Like Liam Neeson in the "Taken" films, Pierce Brosnan shows here that guys in their 60s can still kick anybody's butt; baby-boomers please take note. The film itself recycles every cliche of other post-Cold War CIA thrillers but with a more chaotic and sometimes confusing narrative. And what's a car chase these days without a few motorcycles thrown in?
