    My girl friend loves scary, gory movies but I tend to prefer either intellectual or warm fuzzy genres.

    1917..
    A gritty war drama.
    ot captures the essence of the 1st world war.
    from the horror of the trenches to mud filled shell holes skulls tays and the meat grinder of the war.. go see it.
    A somber reminder
    war is hell and world war 1 was the depths of hell...
    10/10

    I remeber seeing this when I was 10. I thought it was cheesy then, but as I got older, this movie got better and better. I can't explain why... maybe because I learned to appreciate cheesy?

    Bad boys! will Smith and Martin Lawrence Turn a by the numbers cop movie into a comic gem.
    The quips and wisecracks punctuated the carnage. A fun distraction! the twins enjoyed it. and Ian thought it was "Boss" Chris thought it was "cool"

    Excellent movie.

    Whoever did the 'continuity' piece of this needs whatever award there is for that.
    Speaking as a purist geek this film absolutely nailed the period accouterments, the look, and wasn't distracted in the least by it. Good story, well done.

    But I am suffering from latent distraction by the detail. Maybe a past life remnant.
    As an aside, a SMLE No.1 Mk.III is on my bucket list. A good friend has one in perfect condition all matching dated 1915 that was a lamp in his family home for years until one day his Dad pulled the wires out and handed it to him. We still get together and bang away together with it and vintage 1920 m1903 Springfield I have.
    A No.4 Mk.I Stevens-Savage Enfield would be an acceptable second choice. Just saying ... my birthday's in July .....

    A few days ago I watched Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets again, I like this movie, I think its quite creative and has depth, its not perfect but rewatchable...

    This opening with David Bowie's song Space Oddity is great...

    Spartacus is an iconic movie. full of Action adventure and romance.
    A brutal statement on slavery and the harsh system of rome. The late kirk Douglas is at the peak of his career. And Peter Ustinov is stellar.
    I AM SPARTACUS!

    One thing about the Roman legionnaires that I didn't know until just recently and could find no mention of it other than seeing a trend while viewing battle tactics of by gone armies, is they copied or were smart enough to employ the tactic used very successfully by the Khans of Mongolia, the feign and draw. Pretending to flee only to turn back on those who couldn't resist the bait.

    Worked well for both empires.

    Dark City - 1998

    I re-watched this movie earlier today, its an extraordinary film, with a few bad scenes although not many, the story-line is very unique and the characters are good....

    It's one of my favorites. Yet for some reason it bombed at the box office, barely breaking even.

    On the bright side, it was a critical success, and won a number of awards.
    It has also received a high percentage of popular up-votes on both Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB.

    I suppose it was ahead of its time.

    I really enjoyed this one. Another movie with crushing social criticism... and still enjoyable dark comedy/drama.

    I'm not a big fan of mob movies but enjoyed this one. I suppose they're all getting too old and this was their victory lap. Problem was it's 3.5 hours long. I can't imagine trying to sit in a theater that long.

    The only one who wasn't a little too old or fat to pull this off is Skinny Pete. Jesse Plemons did and still does a fantastic sociopath in this.

    This was pretty good but you have to be on your Breaking Bad trivia to follow it. And even if you are there are a couple of really obscure references we had to Google.

    Still watching Better Call Saul but I am starting to flame out from the whole thing.

    there is a rule that movies based on video games are bad..Sonic breaks that rule. Absolutely believable CGI! Jim Carrie is at the too of his game again after an absence from the screen.
    And the kids loved it!

    I certainly could say a few things to Jim Carrey if I ever ran into him, I won't say it here though lol, he needs to stay off the silver screen and keep his anti-American sexist arse in Canada...:Whistle:

    I watched the 1978 movie, The Boys From Brazil, for the first time last night. It's about
    a conspiracy to create numerous clones of Adolf Hitler, and to raise them in similar circumstances as the original.
    It's pretty good. It has impressive star power, while the key child actor in the movie virtually stopped acting afterwards. 8/10


    It streams for free at tubi.
