Fight Valley with Meisha Tate, Cris Cyborg, Holly Holms. B-Movie with an odd ending
Kidnapped for Christ, documentary about a place in the Dominican Republic where American kids are sent to be straightened out by cruel bible-thumpers.
Glad I'm not under 18 and subject to being sent to such a place on somebody's whim.
Is Witch really good ? i heard this is really insanely scary movie......
Black Narcissus (1947) - Deborah Kerr.
About some nuns who are sent to start a mission in the Himalayas, and the problems between them.
10 Cloverfield Lane Thought this was mis-titled until the end.
My Cousin Rachel, adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier novel. Good gothic romance mystery with Richard Burton(his Hollywood debut) and Olivia de Havilland. Apparently they didn't get along during filming.
The Martian - utter tripe - avoid
Too talky IMHO
wholeheartedly disagree. I thought the Martian was a very entertaining movie
Sw this flick.......................Where is Ray Walston???
Great ending. Finally see Doomsday
Was it too scary to watch alone ??
Other than one grotesque scene, no scarier than Casper..............................boo
Casper the Friendly Ghost was a Comedy,,,,dude
My point exactly
This is the Real scary movie. i was told that this one is really really well made and acted out. and is real life like scary
Saw Witch this morning not this Scary Movie in the Cornfield
Watching this now, looks scary. Want scary, watch Wolf Creek
Slight spoiler on the movie quality.
''the third one is always the worst'' In this case, I couldn't agree more.
The Other Guys.
This is a winner, TRADE
Was it really scary or was it just really good ? critics really liked that one. and what do you mean by Trade ?
If you watch it, you will know. Both
White Heat (1949) - James Cagney, Virginia Mayo. Classic gangster movie.
It was okay I guess. Ewan Mcgregor was awesome though. Plus, now I know why Obi-Wan's love interest in The Clone Wars was named Satine. Clever writing from the creators.
Annie Hall (1977) - Seeing it for second time. woody allen, diane keaton.
Saw it in my teens first time, in another century.
Wolf Creek 2 went overboard on effects, the original was scary though.
Haha great movie this scene is just brilliant
Watched My Winnipeg (2007),nice little doco
It would get me banned here to post the title
I don't know why I watched the entire film but I saw The D Train on Showtime two nights ago. Easily the worst Jack Black film ever.
I started to watch Manglehorn with Al Pacino in the lead today. So bad I shut it down after 30 minutes.
So pseudo-intellectual Woody is better than the pseudo-intellectual behind him?
The director comes forward to scold the man for not understanding his oblique work. How different from, say, STEM, authors there try to make their meanings as clear as possible, and if the meaning is misunderstood, they don't scold, but try to fix their books so that it can be understood by more people.
Why such a difference between STEM and the humanities? Because one has substance and the other is all smoke and shadows.
If these artsy movies really do tell the 'meaning of life', why all the obscurantism? I think it's a way to seem deep, a way to impress their dates, perhaps?
Spectre - some critics didn't like it much but I thought it was more classic old school Bond which I enjoyed.
Deadpool - I'll need to watch this again uninterrupted.
Blue Jasmine (2013). Cate Blanchette, Alec Baldwin. d. by Woody Allen.
Seeing it again after two years.
The Keeping Room (2015). With the Civil War as a backdrop the film tells the story of what happens when Augusta(Brit Marling),her younger sister and a female slave holding out at a farmhouse 'meet' two soldiers.
Far from the Madding Crowd (1967) - Julie Christie.
About a woman's complicated love life.
^there was a pretty good remake of that last year
Nell (1994) - Jodie Foster, Liam Neeson.
Interesting movie about a girl brought up in the mountains by her mother. She has never interacted with anyone else. A doctor discovers her when her mother dies.
"The NIce Guys"
Will be watching U Turn in the theater today. Kannada movie with English sub-titles.
Quicksilver to the rescue [must save dog's pizza amidst the chaos]...Sweet Dreams are made of this!
Next on my list. btw nice avatar.
Diary of a Chambermaid (1946) - Paulette Goddard, Judith Anderson. d. by Jean Renoir.
But too cliched
The Prestige. Awesome.
The Suspect (1944) - Interesting short (80 min) movie with Charles Laughton.
edit : after watching this movie one can finally understand how pretty young women can fall for people of Poobian dimensions
1. How have you been?
2. Yessss, one of my 10 favorite movies ever.
Keanu, Here's Kitty!
