    Great film. My mind is still occupied with it. I don't know how to rate it re "adult content" but I can tell you that there are no sex scenes.
    The story about what made Herzog make this film in the first place and other details are interesting, too.

    okay, will see it soon. Maybe something in the summary scared me off. Or i am mistaking it with Closely Observed Trains.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    I didn't like District 9 at all. I tolerated Children of Men, but didn't really like it.

    Oh so that makes two of us. I thought i was the only one who did not get all the references to SA and their history of segregation or whatever.

    A movie should be able to stand on its own without any external knowledge of history, norms, or any other type of knowledge, in my opinion.

    Also, if you are going to make a movie about Apartheid, make it with people.

    I just didn't like it, and immediately forgot about it. The way I know if a movie is good is because it will stay with me and occupy my mind in subtle ways forever.

    Memories of Alien Nation, the movie and series from the late 80s made District 9 familiar.

    Yes, I remember reading reviews about it, but I never watched it.

    Finished Wild River (1960). Good movie.

    That's asking for tooo much, only Chewretch can do that.

    That's because Chewretch can think and meditate with body parts which in common humans are limited to secretion and other sub-Chewretchian activities.

    For example, this is a current picture of one of Chewretch's plantar warts:

    i've been on a movie binge lately, trying to see three a week just to get me out of the house so i don't have to hear about friggin' politics non-stop.

    sci-fi escapism was arrival, rogue one, and passengers.
    fantasyland was fantastic beasts and where to find them and underworld: blood wars.
    time machine was hacksaw ridge and hidden figures.

    Watched Underworld: Blood Wars last week and Patriots Day this passed Tuesday. I enjoyed both and would watch both again. Hopefully the BR for Patriots Day will have some good special features.

    Dark Victory (1939) - Interesting. Bette Davis is terminally ill. George Brent and Geraldine Fitzgerald.

    Christmas Eve 1947. so-so.

    Currently watching "The Man Between" 1953, James Mason. Interesting British movie, directed by Carol Reed, about some spy stuff.

    Read 1939 was the best year for films and Dark Victory was one of them. Any thoughts on this? Btw, 10 films were nominated for Best Movie. Was Ronald Reagan in Dark Victory?

    Children of men's one of the most underrated sci fi flicks. It was nicely done and lubezki's a genius.

    Split.

    Out of all M. Night Shyamalan movies this ranks 3rd behind Unbreakable and The Sixth Sense for me. Good movie and James McAvoy was great!

    It got a lot of praise, but I just didn't feel involved. The concept wasn't original either. A few years earlier, an episode of the series Stargate SG-1 explored that premise. In that case, infertility was an intended effect caused by a cancer vaccine given to human kind by an alien race hoping to inhert Earth once the last human being died from old age. It was a classic episode of that great series.

    Wow,finally saw Manchester By The Sea online. Great film,raw,uncompromising drama. For sure my favourite of 2016 (American Honey and Paterson would be 2nd and 3rd respectively) and Casey Affleck gave one of the best performances I've seen in the last 5 years

    It's new. I liked Signs too, but this one just bumped it out of my top 3 because of it's story and it's "twist". I don't want to spoil it.

    I would like to see Split as well. I watched Morgan last night which has who I believe is the main girl from Split in it. Morgan was probably pretty decent but I dozed off because I was quite tired. That reminds me, I want to see what people have said about it at IMDb. Tonight we watched The Girl On The Train and while it was a little slow at times, I enjoyed it.

    Cause something came up or because you didn't like it? I saw it once in the theater but never picked it up on BR. I know I'll be seeing the sequel.

    I don't remember hearing anything negative about it. I mean it's just a revenge, kickin' ass type film. You didn't like the part with the dog or you thought it was cheesy?

    My dad does that a lot. He also watches the same Hallmark movies sometimes even when they were just on a day or two before.

    I watched this with a couple of my little cousins the other day. The nostalgia was immense.

    I have only seen the trailers for this film. I'm assuming the DMV one is where the sloth tells the joke and everything he does is really slow. the trailer made the movie look really funny.

    Yup! It's good movie, but that DMV/Sloth scene was very clever and funny!

    A Woman Under the Influence (1974). Good movie about a nutty woman and her husband and kids. Touching.

    LMAO. Women under suresh aren't just nutty, they are like peanut butter. Crushed. :D


    Currently watching The Women (1939). Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell, Joan Crawford, Joan Fontaine, Hedda Hopper..
    No men are shown although there is a lot of talk about them.

    The forum is doing that double poasting thing, it seems.

    Yup, if he is Mr Stephen Haines, then yes, they are all fighting over him. The wife and the perfume saleswoman, and all the other Manhattan women.
