    Bourne Legacy's tone arm are too heavy and the needle too dull for contemporary pressings.:D

    never understood the hype...
    yes it was certainly a good film, Aliens was as well. but, neither are as good as the original Predator IMO.

    I finally saw Southpaw last night...good fight scenes but the story was kinda weak and 50 Cent needs to stick to rapping.

    I was very interested in this one (first ever R rated DC film I believe).

    Yes, she does a great job. I mentioned it here since it is 93 minutes long, and just as good as any either whodunit made as a movie.

    Alien (1979)
    Did you watch it at home on your TV?
    Really needs to be seen in a rusty, seedy 1979 Drive-in when you are 9 years old. I know I did.
    Watching it on Netflix at 30years on isn't fair.
    Predator (1987) is an all time classic, though.
    Movies have a similar theme but a different atmosphere.

    I was expecting great things because DC animated stuff is usually good and the Killing Joke is one of the most famous stories. I just couldn't get into this at all. It doesn't measure up to other movies like the Dark Knight Returns.

    The Secret Life of Pets with Taylor Swift's 'Welcome to New York' song:cool:

    ''Max (Louis C.K.) is a spoiled terrier who enjoys a comfortable life in a New York building until his owner adopts Duke, a giant and unruly canine. During their walk outside, they encounter a group of ferocious alley cats and wind up in a truck that's bound for the pound. Luckily, a rebellious bunny named Snowball swoops in to save the doggy duo from captivity. In exchange, Snowball demands that Max and Duke join his gang of abandoned pets on a mission against the humans who've done them wrong.''

    Saw Absolutely Fabulous. Had never seen the TV show, but I expect a half-hour dose would be easier to take. Liked the music.

    Admittedly I haven't come around to reading The Killing Joke, so maybe I can warm up to the movie. Agree, DC's animated stuff is really good; The Dark Knight Returns is a great.

    "Jason Bourne"

    this time, IT'S PERSONAL!!! More screeching tire noises than any movie in history, seldom a dull moment, but you'll think "haven't I seen this before?" The film alternates between car chases (more like demolition derby) and Bourne pushing his way through crowded streets and ducking into alleys. Sound familiar?

    How was it? A movie that has sort of slipped through the cracks for me...

    Watched Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982) for probably about the 10th time,always good for a bit of fun...

    @Rusty Shackleford
    Just saw a very sweet movie about an old man who travels around the country with his cat. Harry and Tonto (1974).
    You should check it out.

    Garden Inn or Destination Parkway? There's no conventions so it's only busy for us in Pointe Orlando or by The Eye.

    I dropped a fare at Hilton/Destination and was outside Rosen Centre for a few minutes but it was dead so I rode back to Pointe Orlando for my next fares. I got one more back there and it was still dead so it was back to the Pointe and The Eye.

    Is Anybody There? (2008) - Bill Milner, Michael Caine.

    Interesting and touching story of a 10yo boy living in an old age home and is consumed by one question. What happens when we die ? He reads, carries out experiments, etc to find out. His mother runs the home. And then Caine (a retired magician) arrives ....

    Sleeping With Other People is witty, sexy, very well written, has a great soundtrack and is full of beauty shots of the NYC skyline...a fun way to spend a couple of hours!

    The protagonist couple meet quite by accident in a Columbia U. dormitory in '02. Within two minutes, the guy (Jason Sudeikis) is trying to convince the girl (Alison Brie) that the guy down the hall in the dorm whom she has the hots for is no catch at all and she should lose her virginity to someone better:

    "Matthew Sobvechik is the Pontiac Aztek of people. Lainey, you having sex with Matthew Sobvechik is basically the same thing as me telling an Aborigine in the Australian outback that he's about to listen to The Beatles for the first time and then I play Blues Traveler. That's a cruel joke for I will have tricked him into thinking Blues Traveler is the greatest band of all time. OK, now, if you were to sleep with Matthew Sobvechik, you will be addicted to mediocrity for the rest of your life. And that barely covered vagina of yours deserves better than that. It doesn't deserve John Popper, it deserves John Lennon..."

    The argument works, they both lose their virginities to each other but drift away in different directions until 13 years later when they meet in a sexual addiction 12-step class. The rest of the movie is about becoming friends first and very cemented lovers by the end.

    "Indignation"

    In theatres now, fascinating adaptation of Philip Roth novel, there isn't much in the theatres in the summer that's thought provoking and involving; see this one if it's around, though I don't think it's in very many theatres. Logan Lerman, who plays the male lead, has a very bright future.

    Woody Allen's films of the last 15 years or so have been fairly mediocre; this one continues the streak, and even the actors seem bored with the whole thing.

    The Whales of August (1987) - Bette Davis, Lillian Gish.

    Very interesting, touching movie about two old ladies living in Maine, in a beautiful house by the ocean.
    Gish was 94 at this time, about 15 years older than Davis. Very good performance by Gish (1893-1993).
    Here she plays the role of the younger sister.

    Vincent Price looking handsome and respectable as ever. Saw him in Laura (1944) forty three years before this movie !! saw him recently in Journey into Fear, too.

    Epic atmospheric isolationist desert scenery.
    Very cleverly done for its time.
    Classic line of Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!..'

    Spawned a lot of crazy movies, Tv shows & even a cartoon.

    The greatest sports movie of all time.

    Judge Smails: Spaulding, get dressed you're playing golf.
    Spalding Smails: No I'm not grandpa I'm playing tennis.
    Judge Smails: You're playing golf and you're going to like it.
    Spalding Smails: What about my asthma?
    Judge Smails: I'll give you asthma.

    Judge Smails: Oh Billy Billy Billy Billy Billy. Oh Billy Boy - this is a biggie

    One of my all time favourites

    Quartet (2012) - produced by Dustin Hoffman. Maggie Smith and Tom Courtenay.

    Interesting movie about a home for retired musicians and opera singers. It's set in Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire (stunning location https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedsor_House). 85 acres of gardens around this old mansion that dates back to 1166 but rebuilt after a fire in 1795. There's a fair amount of opera in the movie, these are opera singers and they have to perform in order to support this retirement home.

    Quartet is a reference to Verdi's Rigoletto, and the four main actors who perform this.

    Suicide Squad

    I usually view claims of reviewers being paid shills with a heavy dose of scepticism, but Suicide Squad seems to be the only movie so far where I feel almost compelled to believe that as the truth.

    It is by no means the worst movie ever made as claimed by some reviewers, and the story was pretty damn clear. Not at all muddied. Editing was a bit clumsy at parts though. Not sure why critics wanted Deadpool Pt 2 then complained about the use of curse words in the film either.

    Not at all a perfect film (no one is arguing that), but it was a very entertaining film, and not at all deserving of the 26% RT rating it got. The fact that these same critics were likely responsible for the 75% RT rating that Ghostbusters got is quite ridiculous.
