G.O.A.T.
Rambo:First Blood(1982) for the first time - Entertaining, it was. Touching when Rambo(Sylvester Stallone) broke down towards the end. Did public mistreated the returning soldiers from Vietnam War? Can anyone give me a bit of context?

I am watching a pretty funny comedy Just One of the Guys (1987).
Pretty nice.
A girl wants to be a reporter but feels she needs to be a guy to get her article published.
So she dresses like a guy and pretends to be one, of course a lot of confusion with her boy friend and then girls falling for "her".

G.O.A.T.
Crawl(2019) Cast: Kaya Scodelario, Barry Pepper, Morfydd Clark:
Plot: Category 5 Hurricane hits Florida. A young woman ignores the evacuation order and goes to rescue his father where they face the threat of alligators in the midst of rising flood.

Thrilling, scary movie. I would give it a 6/10

I finished watching Manhuter Season 2 and I am so sad that it's already over and now, I'll have to wait another year or so; that is if there's a plan for Season 3.

I found it very gripping and engaging. It starts off a bit slow but picks up quite nicely and ends well. Though the ending is not highly satisfying, there's not much you can do about that given that the case ends there.

I also watched La La Land last night. Loved the jazz music all throughout, the vibrant colours and the pacing of the movie.

Nothing in Common (1986) - pretty nice comedy/drama about an advertising executive (Tom_Hanks) and his father (Jackie_Gleason) who never got along, and then confront their issues. Gets rather serious in the end.

Have you seen Hitchcock’s The Trouble with Harry? It’s quite funny. Not ha ha funny but the feeling is there. It’s silently hilarious.

North by Northwest still remains supreme though. I giggled nonstop at that one.

The Gingerbread Man (1998) - legal thriller based on a John Grisham story that was not published.



Robert Duvall plays on old, senile man who is dangerous. Kenneth Branagh is a lawyer chasing him, along with Robert Downey, Jr his assistant. The old man's daughter is involved with the lawyer. It was quite interesting but not great.

So that's why I haven't got The Gingerbread Man on my collection [The Pelican Brief and A Time to Kill are the ones I don't have on the shelf bcoz I've watched them on film].

Grave of the Fireflies (1988)

One of the most powerful movie watching experiences of my life. I am very emotional when it comes to movies but this one had me in a mess. I think everyone - every human should watch this. It was so touching that I don't want to watch it in the near future again. While I love re-watching masterpieces, re-watching this one will make me a bit numb and that should not happen when viewing this movie. Anyone with a soul will understand this.

An exile from home splendor dazzles in vain
Oh give me my lowly thatched cottage again
The birds singing gaily that came at my call
And gave me the peace of mind dearer than all
Home, home, sweet, sweet home
There's no place like home, there's no place like home!

10/10
movie. It doesn't matter that its an anime. Watch it.

Ah man I don't get updates on this thread anymore for some reason. I saw a few. Saw Avengers Endgame with my 8yo. He loved it. It was fun to watch certain parts over again and remember how I felt when I saw it the first time. In the theater I just saw Ready or Not with my wife. It was enjoyable. Basically a woman gets married to a guy who's part of this rich family. They have to play a game. It's hide and seek. Well the rules of the game is that she has to survive from midnight til dawn. It's awesome to watch as she realizes what's going on. Ending was great, some good stuff in the middle too. Would definitely go and watch again. Not a big name cast. I recognized about 3 or 4 of the actors, so it's cool to watch it as you don't know what's going to happen. Say if Tom Cruise was in there you'd know he'd survive, so no big names and not knowing some of the actors makes it much more enjoyable for me.

The Impossible (2012)
Cast:
Naomi Watts, Ewan McGregor, Tom Holland
Plot: A tourist family in Thailand caught in the destruction of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
Based on a true story.

A touching movie. It made me realize how traumatic it must have been for someone to search for their missing family member among the dead bodies.

Grave of the Fireflies (1988)
I saw this about maybe 10-15 years back and I agree. What's more the little girl in it totally reminded me of a niece who was the same age and looked just like that. I took care of her a lot during those years. So it was even more emotional for me.

Prior to that I did see another one: Barefoot Gen. Check it out.

I don't think I would dare see them again.

I watched some crazy movies this past week as usual.

The Purge had a very promising premise but it ended up being a bit of a slasher movie - your very Charlie Manson style no less. It still exposes a lot of negative human traits which I found it to be quite believable.

The Book of Henry was good and bad at the same time. I thought it could have been executed better. The worst part was, it wasn't as believable or even logical - on a second thought, I don't think that's not as outrageous. The best part, beautiful relationship between the mother and sons. And the haunting fall settings. It may make you cry a couple of times.

The Beguiled by Sofia Coppola. Apparently it's a remake of the 1971 one which had more depth and better character development and more layers. I still found it quite intriguing, really.

Once upon a time in Hollywood.

I really enjoyed this rewriting of history.Rick and Cliff ftw. haha I now need a 10 season series on Netlifx with Brad Pitt and Leo's adventures. The flamethrower. :laughing: I think this is the best Leo role in a while. Certainly my favourite. He was hilarious here. 8/10

I'm traumatized by it.

I've never seen such violent violence.

Lazy plot, great graphics but that's about it.

Not sure what lesson can be taken from this movie, other than not to trust aliens.

Not so original. It's just an evil version of Superman (Superboy).

im a big fan of Ben Stiller, but this movies is just not the best. You can cook a big dinner and still follow this movie if you drop 10 minutes here or there.

:D its weird

Has anyone here seen The Girl with All the Gifts? Highly recommend it.

As well The Little Stranger but I might have talked about it already. Just don't seem to recall it and too lazy to go back.

Case 39 is a really good movie for its genre. Just like I found the zombie movie The Girl with All the Gifts to be a stand out for its genre.
