    Rush -

    I was pleasantly surprised that was watchable. I made me want to dust off Gran Turismo and get my race grove on.

    Godzilla

    Not to bad in the beginning but I got very frustrated towards the end. It got really stupid and you couldn't even see what was going on half the time as it was set at night and in the rain. Couldn't they afford the FX so had to hide it in gloominess?

    Transformers 4: Age of Extinction.

    Wish Michael Bay would become extinct. That was the worse film I have seen for a very long time... I just read that Bay is leaving the Transformers franchise so perhaps there is hope for Transformers 5?

    Bottom line, I need to avoid "blockbusters" and find some quality films to watch. That reminds me that it's the twentieth anniversary of the Shawshank Redemption. I need to dig that out of the collection and watch that. Greatest film of all time?

    Just watched Alien again.

    After it came out in 1979, I hadn't heard anything about it yet. I came home from work to a dark and empty house around midnight one night, switched on HBO (which was only one channel back then), and happened upon the opening credits of this movie. I was frozen to my seat until the movie ended. Had to turn on all the lights in the house, and I'll admit it, I looked under the bed and in the closet for monsters. There was no way I could have gone to sleep otherwise. Scared the beejesus out of me. Seeing it again, it still is a tense and freaky movie, even all these years later. One of the best scary monster movies ever made, IMO.

    I think there's a general inverse relationship between movie quality and production/marketing budget. The higher the budget the worse the movie. I'm thinking that a big budget leads to lazy movie making. Rather than relying on a solid script, skillful cinematography and acting, a big budget favors big name actors, CGI, action and explosions. Of course there's always exceptions. Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay films are pretty much banned from my eyes.

    Another relationship I've noticed is that the higher the sequel number the crappier the movie. I wouldn't hold my breath on Transformers 5.

    ^^ Can't disagree with any of that.

    That said, I'm look forward to Interstellar this month and Jupiter Ascending in February. That's mega budget, mega FX but hopefully the Wachowskis brothers can pull of this Epic.

    Just got back from "Fury". Hate to admit it, but I'm a pretty big fan of Brad Pitt's acting. His character in Fury is very believable. Makes me appreciate the sacrifice of my wife's grandfather and uncle in WW2.

    Just back from Interstellar. I was very, very impressed with this one- it merits its comparison to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and manages to accomplish a lot of what it sets out to do. It lays out a lot of the rules for space travel and relativity, and convincingly lays out a very bleak picture to necessitate the need to ensure the survival of the species. And when was the last time that a movie really understood some of the mechanics of time when it comes to space travel? The original Planet of the Apes, maybe?

    Beware it's 3 hours long so you need to go on an empty bladder or time your pee breaks accordingly BTW Most of the movie is devoted to exposition... the special effects are great but there are several key moments. John Lithgow explains things. Then Michael Caine explains things. Then Anne Hathaway explains things. Finally, once we're in the third act, Jessica Chastain starts explaining things. ... you don't want to leave yours seats . And remember an hour in Interstellar is like seven years for your bladder

    I'm not a fan of Anne Hathaway or Matthew McConaughey but I thought they were both pretty good. I won't give any spoilers (there are a few surprises) and the movie certainly gives you alot to chew on.

    Yes, that's the one. Very good IMO. It snuck through under the radar. I feel that much quality scifi is not appreciated by the masses, therefore it often goes unrecognized. Society wants tits and ass and explosions. Oh, and drugs and vulgarity and violence. Not that I don't mind a bit of that myself, but there are much subtler ways to tell a very quality story. Although I enjoyed watching them and consider them a great entertaining escape, IMO a few of the stupidest movies that I have seen are the F&F's, the last few Transformers, Iron Man and the Avengers flirt with stupidity.

    I like to think about what I just watched. Dream House with Daniel Craig is another good one.

    Saw Big Hero 6 with the family on Saturday. It's a good film and the animation is just incredible. Suffice to say it is not Frozen (though that's good as well). It's much more serious with some dark undertones but it balances that well with comic relief. Sure some of the "tech" get silly in the end but I didn't care as the story is strong and my kids (8 and 11) loved it.

    Interstellar. Lots of talking and explaining, some great special effects. I suspected a lot as the movie progressed, and wasn't disappointed. I'd much prefer a different actor in the Anne Hathaway role, but besides that, it was well cast. Matt Damon has a nice meaty supporting role. Recommended.

    Interstellar

    Not a usual Christopher Nolan film. It is epic, has a sharp-eyed view of the future, and characters with real human emotions. I really like this ambitious, thought-provoking, uplifting film.

    Perhaps not my favorite Kelly Reichardt film (Old Joy; Wendy and Lucy; Meeks Cutoff), but still great, nonetheless.

    And I recently watched this crummy B movie that seems to be rated 7 out of 10 on it and I can't figure out why:
    Snowpiercer (2013) - IMDb

    Fury.
    Excellent movie, but not for the faint of heart. Very realistic.
    The Tanks were all real, including the German Tiger I. They used tanks in the Bovington Tank Museum in England, so the sounds etc are all real.

    This is one of the Tanks actually used in the movie.

    Watched Homefront, with Jason Statham last night. There's a couple of good fight scenes in it, but the way they shot them these days, all choppy, you can barely tell what's going on.

    Just a.nother Statham flick. I've seen worse.

    "Nightcrawler" was really good, Jake Gyllenhaal was the man for the job in that movie for sure.

    Had "The Asphalt Jungle" on the dvr so finally watched that, very good. Had Sterling Hayden in it who is one of my favorite actors, and an interesting guy in real life too. You want to see a great old crime drama check out his "The Killing".

    Matthew McConaughey lost a lot of weight for that role but got an Oscar in return. He stated never to do that kind of weight loss again. It was a relief to see a real good film again after the flood of crud the past year.

    The Killing is excellent. Some might be surprised to know that its an early Kubrick movie.

    I finally took time to watch "The Road", kind of slow, kind of sad, but all in all a good movie

    Just had to suffer flying to the UK and back. In the copious hours on the plane I sat through:

    X-Men: Days of Future Past - Okay. Better than many of that ilk, but not having watched all of the X-men series, parts of it left me confused.

    Edge of Tomorrow (or Live Die Repeat if you want the new name for it) - I thought this was very good, ultimately beaten out by Guardians of the Galaxy for viewing entertainment.

    Guardians of the Galaxy - Brilliant, fun, best film of the trip.

    Noah - I'm not religious and had high hopes and thought the bad reviews were from religious folks that didn't like its storytelling but it was awful.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier - entertaining enough but average, predictable and silly. Marvel fans would love it though.

    The Hunger Games-Catching Fire

    Lots of talking, lots of tears, depression, PTSD, brain washing, war crimes. Follows the book. I expect part 2 will be more watchable.

    I found my long lost copy of "Trial and Error" so I watched it. Made me fall in love with Chalize Theron (or the character she played) all over again.

    Can't believe the movie is from 17 years ago.... made me feel old.

    The first Coen brothers film I have seen since No Country For Old Men. It is thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended!

    Good film. Very under rated I believe. Certainly not a feel good movie though....

    White Oleander (2002) about a girl in foster care and how easy it can be for children to slip though the cracks, face neglect or abuse. not my usual choice of story but I thought the acting was very good

    ^^ That looks like fun but I am worried about the some of the FX in the trailer leading me to suspect that they may focus on "action" over story (flipping bus for the example). Yeah, yeah I know it's an action film, but you can still have action with believable physics....

    Prometheus (2012) - IMDb

    It's rare to find something that has no redeeming quality, but "Prometheus" pulls it off.

    My wife recently bought Gremlins 2, which is my favorite of the series.

    Gremlin #1: [repeated phrase while on telephone in stock exchange] BUY! BUY! BUY!
    Gremlin #2: [repeated phrase while on telephone in stock exchange] SELL! SELL! SELL!
    Brain Gremlin: [on telephone] Well, it's rather brutal here. Right now we are advising all our clients to put everything they've got into canned food and shotgun shells.

    The Gremlins movies were my daughter's addiction at about age 3 or so. All day long, every day. If you've got children you know what I mean.

    That last movie I watched?? Well, Frozen, but before that I watched Frozen and then Frozen one more time. That was Sunday, but the day before that we only saw Frozen twice which was a better day for me....

    Exactly. Frozen was playing at my MIL's over Thanksgiving, and it's just another of the same movie that Disney should be ashamed of replicating over and over. I was lucky, the soppiest of the bunch I had to deal with back then was "The little mermaid".

    I liked the Gremlins movies, and another one I remember her binging on is "The Jungle Book", which ab-so-lutely rocks IMO, but it's also almost as old as I am.

    Arthur Christmas. Fantastic Christmas film for kids and adults alike.

    I think I like it so much because I'm becoming a bit of a Grand Santa myself. Lol.

    wv_bob, Perfect time of year for Gremlins, it's a Christmas movie after all. My sister was/is a super disney fan, she has every available VHS copy of the 'toon movies and The Jungle Book is so worn that the tracking has to be adjusted many times during the movie, which as you might imagine gets quite annoying.

    I recently watched Snowpiercer, better than I thought it could be and a number of recognizable actors, more than I would've thought for a straight to stream movie.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Planes (supposed to be with the little guy)

    I was actually quite intrigued with the realism and accuracy of actual aviation communication, and flight physics! The sounds of the individual aircraft was pretty good too. The engine of the F4U sounded accurate, as well as other flight sounds!

    Edge of Tomorrow - pretty solid flick ^^ didn't really develop the male/female thing enough - pretty hard for an action film... 3.5 stars

    Watched "American Hustle", free on Encore last night. It was OK, but it's not "The Sting". There were some sympathetc characters though - Jeremy Renner as the mayor had the best role and did a good job with it IMO.

    I just watched Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014) - IMDb

    Not as good as the first one but not bad. More like a continuation of the stories plus a new story.

    Name the last movie you watched

    I finally got around to watching Interstellar last week. Meh. It was enjoyable enough, but it also was basically the entire Space Odyssey book series all mashed together into one movie. A couple typical Christopher Nolan plot holes. It was entertaining for the $5 I paid for it, but I don't see what all the hype was about.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    I rented Into the Storm. Definitely seemed to play homage to Twister, which I liked better. There was some pretty cool CGI, though and it kept my attention better than some other rentals.

    I actually really enjoyed Prometheus and don't understand the backlash.

    Most recent was True Grit I think. I have something on whever I'm working on a bike.

    We watched Gardians of the Galaxy this weekend. I saw it this summer with my daughter and loved it. It's good stuff. Even the wife liked it. Some smart dry humor tossed in there. I like.

    I haven't seen it, just something about Billy Bob that I don't like. Might have been the horrible job he did with Halle Berry in Monsters Ball, she deserved a bit more passion than she got.

    ^ Yes, in many ways he really was bad. To me that's what made his role of a shithead-mall rat Santa so perfect.

    I just watched this Firesign Theater cult classic: J-Men Forever (1979) - IMDb
