Alice Through the Looking Glass It was alright... kind of an interesting watch... not Johnny Depps best role but he still kills it.

You have me more interested in the twists and turns throughout the movie. Ive never been really into the horror genre, seen a few nightmare on elm streets, and a few childs play and jason movies, and thats about it. I did LOVE cabin in the woods the Whedon version. But i will love anything with unexpected twists and turns, thats what I love so much about anime.

I just watched Berserk: The Golden Age Part 1: The Egg of the King. I enjoyed it, although it wasnt nearly as gruesome or horrific as either the 96 series nor the 2016 series. It was slow and the pacing was off and it ended in a really strange spot but I still enjoyed it. The Kotaku reviewer said the third movie is the most horrific thing he had ever seen in his life and had difficulty watching all of it. Im a bit desensitized and weird to begin with, but im sure ill yell 'Holy fuck!" in a surprised manner as i usually do with this crazy horrific series.

oh and MANNEQUIN was so fucking key to my childhood. id watch it over and over and over. I think its fucking brilliant, and still holds up as quite entertaining today, even with the cheesy 80's factor that screams throughout the whole movie. Im glad you feel as strong about it as I do!

totally tried to watch Fantastic Beasts based on all the good reviews. as the fella just put it, "that movie has everything...but characters."

and for that it just feels like a mess. they open the film up but for whatever reason the writers just seemed to forget to introduce the characters in any kind of substantial way. therefore i had no real anchor, and didn't at all have an ounce of care for anyone in the story. and therefore, had no investment in the story.

/62 very disappointed, since i love the Wizarding World and was looking forward to another fun ride through it.

I've just finished watching that new Ghostbusters film and thought it was perfectly fine. I laughed out loud a few times and really enjoyed it up until the last 30 minutes or so. The bad guy didn't really make sense but I thought the interplay between the leads was good and I would almost certainly watch a sequel. Turns out there was a lot of noise over nothing really....... well, let's just wait until the trailer for the Gremlins 'reboot' comes along.

Spectral - It is on Netflix and it is a great no thinking movie :)

I like this one. It also has that one guy from The Unit (which is a good TV show btw).

We just watched that last night! It was pretty OK :)
I actually wasn't expecting the little twist at the end.

i just watched it last night as well. agree with all ^ :giggle:

a lot of people keep trying to compare it to Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. i can only think it's because
Spoiler: show
there are invisible entities?
...but the similarities don't really go much beyond that. in fact, if you've not seen this one, it's amazing and better than Spectral. you don't have to know anything about Final Fantasy to dig it...I sure went in knowing nothing and love that flick to this day.

Nocturnal Animals

omg, holy shit this is the best movie i've seen in a long time. i won't post the trailer because it's very misleading. this is a very dark psychological thriller that should have been a Brian DePalma film. there are very Hitchcockian undertones as well. beautifully acted and directed. i don't want to say too much and spoil it but if anyone else watches it please post - i'd love to discuss with ya!!!

The Great Wall



even though it's not getting the best critical reviews, i really enjoyed it! i found it to be super-exciting. i mean, it's not going to blow your mind, but it will entertain you with some awesome effects, action, costumes, and set-pieces!

Meh... it was OK. I am a huge fan of the series, but this felt like a somewhat weak attempt at fan service. I get that they wanted to give some more answers and closure, but I'm not sure that that was really what fans needed or wanted. Too many chases, not enough fighting and cool spy stuff...

Christine
oh man, if you know the story of Christine Chubbick, well then you know this film is going to be a sad one
it's probably Rebecca Hall's best performance, ever, as well

but besides the personal story, it's a story about the state of journalism and how the news started to change back in the 70's. Chubbick was fighting against the trend of just shoveling total info-tainment shit to people. was it in Network (which was somewhat inspired by her story) that it was said that the masses are overall stupid? and how as journalists you have an obligation to inform and investigate; you don't just gratify that stupidity in order to make money and get ratings.

i actually think it would make for a good C&D discussion. it's amazing how relevant and prophetic Network still is, and it came out 40 years ago...it remains one of my favorite movies, ever.

AWESOME epic Korean zombie flick

The Girl with All the Gifts
not too bad...British low-budget (guess they spent it all on Glen Close?) zombie movie, but less about the actual zombies and more character driven. involves zombie kids, so there's some freaky scenes.

The Disappointments Room
ugh, yet ANOTHER "family moves from the city to a big new haunted house in the country" story.
don't waste your time

i've obviously been watching a lot of movies lately...not feeling good so it's my distraction ;-)

Reading an article regarding the remake being done by the Soska Sisters made me get an urge to watch the original... ;)

The Infiltrator
crime drama based on the true story of Robert Mazur (ex customs agent) It's based on the true story of undercovers busting up Pablo Escobars money laundering. Bryan Cranston and John Leguizamo are fantastic in this film. It's similar to a Donnie Brasco, Narcos vibe. Less violent and more focused on the characters and story.
