    He is too old. Period.
    But the real star wars is LeeD vs Sureshs.

    Darth Poobah vs LeeD BaselineWalker. ;)

    The San Francisco wave rider has extensive wave knowledge, catches every wave at every turn while Darth AYCE can read the buffet better than anyone... Coincidentally, duck and chicken are the only food served at the AYCE buffet, hence, no chance of Star Wars ever happening.:D

    Thanks for recommendation. Will get it asap.

    Amazing how many great / interesting movies I've been recommended in this thread. Have you seen the sequel, Manon des sources ?

    Star... you get the idea.

    You're probably in a chair right now.
    Get out of it.
    Go and watch it.

    You're welcome.

    Room (2015) - Great performance by Brie Larson,I didn't find it that interesting though...
    Not yet,took quite a while to find a decent stream of it. I have now so I'll see it tomorrow.

    Yeah,I have too. I learned long ago to just try and mainly focus on the type of movies I'm interested in though,there are just too many good movies out there and few people can hope to see them all in a lifetime...

    Manon Of The Spring (1986). I won't spoil anything,but perhaps it could have been wrapped up a little better. Still,a very good 2 part movie with Jean De Florette

    Watching Andrei Rublev by Tarkovsky. It's almost 3 hours and I've watched an hour over the last 2 days.
    Beautiful but a bit hard to follow. All the faces look the same to me.

    I've got JDF and should be seeing both these after I finish with AR. Thanks for not spoiling !

    I know Poobs seems beyond any measurement of time but our ageless wonder claims he just secured his AARP card this past summer, making him a very young teen when the original was released.:D

    really?

    I was expecting a lot from this movie and Creed :(

    I definitely have low expectations for the new Star Wars...

    There are some images from films that just stay with you. I will always remember the little girl Manon's face full of tears near the end when she realizes everything that has happened

    Carol (2015) - One of the best of this year

    Same here. The disinterestedness displayed at crucial moments bothered me the most, I think. They made me miss Hudson's meltdowns! :eek:

    Bad Santa (2003); though full of vulgar obscenities it's very humorous and entertaining, it's a good christmas movie.

    Dr. No (1962).

    Bond's ability to win over women whom he (firstly) just impoverished in poker, (secondly) are actively the enemy, and he (thirdly) just found in the woods on a remote island, all in the space of two hours, is admirable.

    Just saw Manon des Sources, too. Enjoyed both the movies.

    What were you saying about the "wrapping up" ?

    The Revenant- DiCaprio was amazing as usual. Another Oscar-worthy performance, hopefully he gets it this time. Tom Hardy's accent is a bit annoying though.

    Did a triple feature of Red Rock West (1992),One Hour Photo (2002) and King Of Comedy (1982)
    Well I don't know,I guess I was just surprised with the twists at the end since up until then it all unfolded very slowly and naturally. I did still enjoy the film though and it helped that the girl playing Manon was easy on the eyes. BTW,there was an earlier version of the film,directed by the writer of the original novel: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044883/?ref_=fn_al_ch_1a

    Great movie all around. Nice way to rejuvenate the Rocky Franchise.

    Star Wars - The Force Awakens - 6/10

    Too derivative from A New Hope, there wasn't anything original in the film. Seemed like JJ Abrams was scared to put anything new in the film so he just made a rehash of a New Hope with different characters and settings. But it's better than TPM and AOTC by a longshot, similar level to ROTS.
    I didn't like how the main protagonist was able to learn the force within a few minutes when she had no prior training whatsoever, she's too much of a know it all when she's supposed to be a newb. Finn shouldn't have been able to duel against Kylo at all, he's not even force sensitive.

    Han's death wasn't portrayed well either, there was no buildup or the required drama for it. These are the major issues I had with the film but other than that, it was decent. :)



    Edit - dunno why my post keeps splitting the paragraphs into two spoilers :confused:

    It's ok to admit it was garbage.

    No, TPM and AOTC were outright garbage, horrendous films. This was better than those two films and equal to ROTS atleast. Having a few issues with a film doesn't mean it's garbage, it's just being critical. Im actually hyped for the sequels.

    I think if a new person who's never seen SW before went to watch it, they'd love it. I went in with a mindset of comparing it with episode 4/5/6 but that's just me.

    Saw two movies this weekend- Star Wars VII and Sisrers.

    Interesting thing about Star Wars, there was a reviewer saying the great thing about this franchise was that Disney had bought a wold- a universe, where they had access to unlimited characters, stories, adventures, in the past, present or future. Interesting thing (to me), was that instead of using the vast elements at their disposal, they basically, just remade Star Wars IV and V-- only changing the names and relationships a bit. It was not a bad movie, but you could practically smell their fear of failure.

    Sisters was a funnier film than Star Wars.

    Mad Max (1979). Since I'd never seen any of the MM movies before and the new one is getting talked up,I thought I might as well watch all them. I have to say this first one failed to grab me in any way though,so I hope it picks up a bit...

    Might not be for you then :( I would guess that most people say the sequel is better though (The Road Warrior) Probably more action in the 2nd, but I love both of the first two films. The opening car chase to Mad Max is one of my favorites.

    As for what I've watched lately. AMC did a Conan marathon last weekend. So there's that. Watched a bit of Skyfall, and I'm now watching Star Trek Into Darkness.

    I watched a film yesterday from the Coen Brothers oeuvre that just didn't fit their style; it's called Inside Llewyn Davis and it's about the folk music scene in NYC during the early 60's. The only real macabre slant featured a long car ride from NYC to Chicago that the main character made with two strangers, one of whom (played by John Goodman) is prone to long pit stops for a little IV drug boost. Other than that, it was brutally boring.

    Yes, as you can see from the post you quoted, there was a Hologram on the planet Europa, and some Jewish person wrote an autobiography of how he escaped it. Needless to say, there is time travel and black holes involved and only someone like you will grok the movie.
