    did it also seem a bit of a stretch the numerous times he's kneeling in the street, gets hit head on by a speeding car, and gets up to walk away?? This thing more resembles a cartoon or video game than a movie, with action scenes not so much coherent as hilarious -- they were laughing out loud at the silliness of the thing when I saw it, and it succeeds more as a comedy than anything else (there's certainly no suspense when every hail of bullets seems to manage to miss our hero).

    To each their own

    I thought the movie, from a pure action standpoint, was the best since Mad Max: Fury Road

    The Batman Trilogy.

    The last two thirds were pretty rough going.

    Lion, although I gave it a 7 out 10, I wouldn't watch it again...it's one of those movies you only need to see once but that's just my opinion! :)

    The first half was gut-wrenching, at least for me.
    The moment Dev Patel comes in, the movie goes downhill. They probably should have done with an unknown actor for the second part, rather than someone now quite known for his comedy roles. I thought the little boy was amazing.

    There are thousands of children in India (and other 3rd world countries) who are homeless, and who probably suffer a much worse fate. Abuse, drug addiction etc. I still remember that movie every now and then and it disturbs/shakes me.

    I agree on the first paragraph 100%...

    And second paragraph, yes it is very sad that there's heaps of children in India that are homeless and suffering badly, also across the world I'm sure there's plenty in similar situations...if only they could all be saved!!

    OMG, I just saw "Passengers". This is by far the BEST movie ever made in history of movies... I give it 15 stars out of 10. I cried like 6 times in this movie.

    Just saw Logan....best superhero movie since Dark Knight imo. Was pleasantly surprised how brutal it was- when your main character fights with steel claws it should be brutal.

    This has become a daily joke but just remember, those that cannot play, teach. And those that cannot teach, teach at our club. His style lives on even with a Zombie Apocalypse. 4Life and beyond

    Watched Under the Shadow, Iranian movie, scary in second half, about djinns and Iraqi missile attacks.

    Lots of jump scare scenes.

    Is saw the Viceroy's House, the story of partition and the no win situation Mountbatten found himself. I suspect historic accuracy plays second fiddle to making a film which is ultimately sympathetic to Mother India and a predominantly Indian audience.

    I also saw Elle, a good French psychosexual thriller come family portrait....

    I've heard it quite brutal and graphic. Not a family movie, right ?
