    Rubbish. Just watch it for my sake and then you can give me grief later as usual; that is, if you don't like it.

    And stop copying what I say. Come up with your own. And don't tell me you like Star Wars. I will jump off my building. I am on the 40th floor so it's not going to be pretty. lmho!

    Star Wars is fine. Star Trek is fine. 6 out of 10. I don't like echo chambers and Murray forums sorry.

    I give Star Wars 3 out of 10 and Star Trek 10 out of 10 (and still underrated). They say Gene Roddenberry and Jules Verne were the two most advanced minded writers ever.

    And I don't like obnoxious fans.

    I also highly recommend Primal Fear btw. I really think you will like it. Just please don't watch the trailer.

    I mean look at the Alien trailer. If I'd have seen it I'd have never watched the film.

    That's the idea though? Because it doesn't give away anything. When the trailers make you want to watch the film, that's when you know they won't be good, generally speaking.

    Trailers never make me want to watch films. Show me a trailer that would leave me curious about what's inside a movie.

    That's fine but you do watch trailers. And I believe you didn't mind SLY and SLP trailers all that much.

    That was to check other things but trailers don't tend to have a positive impact on my interest levels for a movie. Generally I avoid trailers.

    For me, it's 3rd due to emotional factor. Although I watched them all at one go, many kids who has grown up watching the first two would have felt emotional since the gap between 2nd & 3rd is 11 years. I guess many were in Andy's shoes.

    Are you a fan of animated movies in general? Which others do you like?

    I am a fan of fantasy movies. I can't pick one particular animated movie since I like them all. But I like Timon and Pumbaa and Ben 10 television series the most. The recent movies that I have watched Toy Story films, Despicable Me 3 and Moana. Though I have planned to watch a few of them like The Lion Kings,UP, Shrek and the rest of the Despicable Me. What else do you suggest? What kind of movies do you like?

    I like a lot of animated movies.. it's probably the type of movie that has the highest chance of satisfying me lol.

    You can't go far wrong with The Lion King, or most Walt Disney classics for that matter. Still a lot for me to catch up on and I really want to watch Moana so I might get around to that soon. I HIGHLY recommend How to Train Your Dragon. Kung Fu Panda is a lot of fun too.

    Oh that "I have watched something good and I want to share it with someone" feeling. :)

    I will add How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda to my list then. And you really should watch Moana with this man voicing for one of lead characters. :)

    I've already watched three of her recommendations in the last week or two so what more does she want?

    I'll watch Moana soon enough and get back to you.

    @-NN- Good to see someone like animation movies against "grown ups should not watch kid's movies" stereotyping.

    There are so many more I want to watch though. I guess my list is 50 or so long? And I know I'm going to love most of them. For starters, I want to complete the classic Walt Disney catalogue as well as the Studio Ghibli catalogue, so that alone is probably 30-40 movies. I haven't seen any of the classics from Walt Disney after Mulan other than Atlantis, and look how many have been released since 1998/2001.

    You should be thankful for the rest of your life for SLP. I kept my promise. I made you cry here, there and everywhere. Mission accomplished.

    Lol! No shame in disliking the Star Wars universe. Episodes 1,2,3 put a bad taste in my mouth but they did that for everyone. I've watched the recent Star Trek movies, enjoyed them but still lost at certain times.

    Teaser trailers do make the best trailers. I've been going to the movies often ever since I got this movie pass and let me tell you how sick I am of watching the same old trailers so I've learned to get to the movies about 10-15 mins after movie start time unless it's a big movie where seats will be scarce haha.

    Just watched Marshall tonight. Great movie, highly recommended. Put it on your list!

    Started Sweetie (1989) - abandoned after 30 minutes or so, too many nude scenes. Directed by Jane Campion.

    Bright Star (2009) - by Jane Campion. About the final years of John Keats and his relationship with Fanny Brawne and Charles Armitage Brown.

    Very interesting story of Keats' life. Brown later moved to Italy and then New Zealand with his son.
