What are you watching?
« on: April 11, 2017, 06:24:56 AM »
Saw Arrival this week - great movie, which was fantastically scored. Worth seeing if you haven't already.

Also saw both of Dave Chappelle's stand up shows on Netflix. Chappelle is one of the funniest comedians out there. However, I think the entire audience was stupidly high in both shows - by the time you got 15 minutes in people were laughing at literally anything he said. "Black people have it hard these days..." *audience laughs* *Chappelle looks slightly uncomfortable because he hasn't delivered a punchline yet*

Saw Escape Plan finally.  Arnie + Sly and good supporting cast.  Seems there isn't much hope for a while.  I enjoyed it and will watch it again one day

10 hour international flight with a mild case of food poisoning, a window seat and fat guy snoring next to me... best to cross my legs and watch some movies to take my mind off it.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - enjoyed it a lot, had some issues with the plot and slightly disappointed at the end, but can't really remember why now.

The Butler - very good film, one I wanted to see on it's release and definitely worth it, great true story too

Creed - I wasn't too bothered when I missed this in the cinema, but I thought it was really good. The main story of Adonis Creed was fairly routine and predictable but well done nonetheless, I thought Rocky's character progression was great though and enjoyed Stallone's performance.

Suicide Squad - an hour into it at 3 am with two hours sleep in the last 40... nope, even now I can't take these movies seriously. Turned it off and listened to music instead.

Btw if you are not an angry Canadian you may find this watchable, even enjoyable and possibly wanting to see it again one day.

Agreed.  The Shining in space without the Jack Nickleson character or the suspense.  Even Jennifer Lawrence couldn't save it, hard as that is to believe.

Saw "The Circle" tonight. Good movie.  It sort of takes a shot at Apple, Google and Scientology all at the same time.  If you watch this movie, you'll understand why I keep a very low internet profile.

Stars Emma Watson and Tom Hanks in that order.  Out of character for Tom - he actually dropped an F-bomb.

Finally got around to watching Moana today.

Fantastic. Excellent. Exciting. Beautiful. Another Disney masterpiece. I mean, I'm a HUGE Disney fan, but this one is out of the park.

Saw Alien:Covenant Saturday night. The movie rocks. Squarely behind 1 and 2 in goodness, but not far behind 2, and that's still a mark of high quality. Infinitely better than the turd Prometheus.

I'm so torn on this one. It looks so dumb and generic. Yet it's so loved. Can't decide wether to rent or not.


Edit: I mean Dr. Strange.

it is. if not for cumberbatch, it might've been green lantern bad. as it is, it falls into "turn off your brain and have an ok time" territory.

My wife being a "Cumberbitch" (her words, not mine), we had to see it the day it came out.  It was decent enough, but I'm not really the superhero movie kind of guy.  My wife enjoyed it because of Cumberbatch.

Best new movie I've seen the last six months is "The Accountant".
