Watched Twister. Liked it the five or six times, liked it now.
Paper Towns (2015)
Good movie!! If you like Romance/Mystery
True Lies (1994)
James Cameron directs Arnie as a family man who is a secret agent. I'm an big Arnie fan, but this isn't my favourite of his. Watched it to pass the time, not seen it for ages. Awesome sleazy schlocky cameo by fave of mine Bill Paxton (Tombstone, Aliens, Big Love, Marvel Agents of Shield)
"Home" - an animated movie that my son loves. It's not awful.
Prag, which is a very good film if you like depressing Danish films.
Ohayo / Good Morning (1959) - Ozu.
This little chap (Masahiko Shimazu) was adorable.
Born in 1952, so he's 63 years old now *cry*.
Full of flatulence jokes, so sureshs should love it !
Spotlight (2015) - An 'All The President's Men' of this generation if you will. A little disappointing for me perhaps,was well acted and all that,but just seemed to lack a bit of punch. Still good but could have been a lot better
Thanks for your recommendation. Saw an hour of it last night, and enjoyed it. Will be finishing it tonight.
I saw it in SFO/Redwood City at a 50 cent theater in 1996. Helen Hunt.
Just remembered that scene of the mother making that massive feast for everyone. I guess I think of food A LOT !!
Don't tease me, bro !
saw Pawn Sacrifice.....good movie. Actors are much much better looking men than the real life guys though.....very disappointed in that.......
Just saw The Marsian. BEST movie of the year by far. BEST movie in history of movies
Big Hero 6
A Royal Affair, which is a very good film if you like depressing Danish films.
Star Wars VII last week.
Just saw Eraserhead. Gotta be the weirdest and creepiest movie I've ever seen.
Girl meets girl. Fine Blanchett and Mara but slower than molasses
Much ado about mops. Light entertainment, an occasional chuckle
You must be new here.
THere are at least a dozen movies, if not two, which he has called the best movie in the history of movies. It's his standard line. We've learned to just chuckle and go on
Is it a remake of Blue is the Warmest Color ?
Marsian has and will be nominated picture of the year.
That is cute pic, reminds my brother and me.
Ambushed aka Hard Line (blu-ray)
Crime drama starring Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture & Vinnie Jones in cameo roles. Two main actors are C grade who bumble thru lines of ordinary lines & stupid scenes. Below average.
Die Hard (1988)
Ripper Xmas action flick. Not too dated, really solid entertainment.
Very silly & extra crass spy action/comedy. Quite good fun if you are in the rude kind of mood.
Saw the Bourne Ultimatum for the second time. The best in the series IMO. Love the scene at Waterloo Station.
And such thing did exist? Impressive.
Yes, I also wanted to experiment some of that beef and smashed potatoes.
I am still in the middle of the 3:21 JFK (Dir cut).
Saw it two year back with my father. Now showing it to mum.
Haven't seen that in years,due for a rewatch
Spring Forward (1999) Another dialogue heavy film like the recent End Of The Tour or My Dinner With Andre. I didn't find it as interesting as either of those,it was still pretty good though...
I just watched The Theory of Everything and thought it was pretty good. Great cinematography throughout and, from most accounts, an accurate telling of his life so far. Nothing really made it excellent, but it was solid.
Before that, I finally watched Blackfish.
Saw Support Your Local Sheriff. Saw it as a kid when it first came out. It was a different kind of movie back then- didn't take itself seriously- mocked the genre, droll. Best part was putting the guy in a jail that had no bars.
Tony Bellew as number one p4p fighter took some getting used to. Most enjoyable movie.
Sounds like Otis on the Andy Griffith Show.
Terms of Endearment. Wow, what a strange movie. In a way, it's like the Seinfeld of dramas. A movie about 'nothing', as in normal life. Nothing extraordinary happens. And yet it works.
The Revenant - 2015. Alejandro Gonzales Innaritu. Di Caprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter.
The story somehow did not hold my interest. I read that a lot of the scenes were real, no CGI. DiCap was afraid of getting hypothermia at one point. Won't reveal other things that were real for fear of spoiling.
Did you watch in a cinema or at home? I heard the cinematography is quite spectacular,I might go and see it next week.
Hitch-Hike (1977). Solid thriller
Saw at home from a screener. It hasn't been released yet.
Yes, the cinematography was very good.
I watched 'Witness for the Prosecution' again last night. Great courtroom drama with an ending that still gives me goosebumps every time.
I just watched Eat and Run (1987) last night. An alien comes to earth and develops a taste for Italian food and starts to eat everyone in Little Italy. Classic stuff!
Saw "Jurassic World" the other day. Just a remake of the previous 2 or 3, except this one with a dinosaur with Jedi like powers. I'd give it 2 1/2 stars tops.
I found it overrated also. The hype was MASSIVE. It was a good popcorn movie.
Saw "The Firm" starring Tom Cruise day before yesterday with a full popcorn bowl.
I watched Jersey Boys in the last week. I had missed seeing the live stage-show of it a while back but the movie is great imo... A cool insight into Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons' background and struggles.
Seen an hour an a half of Trumbo (2015). Bryan Cranston.
Very interesting. Biographical movie set in the 1940's, a screen writer Daniel Trumbo who wrote the screenplay of Roman Holiday and others. Also, parts of the life of the famous actor Edward G Robinson.
Admit it, the only way you watched it is because of Bryan Cranston, yes? On The other hand I know you like movies from bygone years.
My nephew was here. I suggested we watch The Big Short. Then he mentioned Trumbo.
I agreed but said I can't find any subtitles, but he was adamant since he wishes to be a writer. So we started it ... the fact the it had Cranston certainly helped.
I will be rooting for him to win the GG and/or AA. Although, lemme see the other movies before I decide.
I was reading up on Edward G Robinson and had no idea he had a pretty tough life, escaping persecution in Romania in 1903. He was anti-Na__zi and anti-Fascist but had a bad time during the anti-Commie days in the 40's. it affected his career adversely.
btw, we were discussing The Revenant, and I sort of remember several parallels with Aguirre the Wrath of God. The voyage through jungles, the fights with the natives, etc.
