The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.

Eh. There was a lot wrong with it, but I did kinda like the ending.

It seemed like it was written, as well as narrated, by someone deeply ****ed up by drugs, though. Like so many Hollywood movies of the last couple of decades...at least. They're in trouble. Not that that's news.

the first "Alien" movie.  I remember when I first saw it in a theater.  It is one of the only movies that actually made me jump out of my seat.

I saw Alien on the big screen when I was 11, right after it opened....my Uncle took me and my cousin. Gave me nightmares for weeks, but today is one of my favorite films of all time..

I must say though, Ben Affleck Surprised me as Batman. I thought he did a really good job but at first I hated the idea of him as Batman. The writers just ruined the movie to me. If you are a DC Comic fan you will understand. They also brought out the end game story in the second movie. They squeezed like 6 movies worth of lore into one movie. No. Just. No.

I just watched All-American M.ur.der.s tonight, and unexpectedly loved it. Reminded me of my childhood, better memories of (at least culturally) better times. In a way. It was kind of a lighthearted spoof, but still so ridiculously, lovably early 90's. So cute. Might even watch it again.

EDIT: Whoa, auto-edit seems like it's in overdrive. Hope my words show up this time...otherwise, it might sound like I'm upvoting what might seem like a really creepy/freak-o movie, lol. At least, I don't know how else people might interpret the bleeped out portion.

10 Cloverfield Lane- I saw Cloverfield and did not like it but this movie was 1000x better in my opinion. I was on the edge of my seat trying to guess what was really going on and was surprised. I will be watching it again.

Hardcore Henry. It was like watching someone play a video game. After the hundreth guy got killed I did start to wish I'd watched a more intelligent film, you know, something with complex characters and a ****ing story line. It's all shown from the first person perspective and the action scenes are well choreographed, so if that's your thing then you might enjoy it. Bang, bang, pew, pew, pew. boom.

Sad I missed the chance to see this at the cinemas but once this comes out on DVD I'll certianly be getting it. I run an exploitation film club for friends so will be featuring this in one of the Action themed sessions!

I really enjoyed the first one so I wonder how I will like this. It does look great :D

Glad you enjoyed it! Deadpool is one of my favourite Marvel films to date. Which always says something for me when I'm more of a DC fan and honestly think a lot of the Marvel films are overhyped. Deadpool though is refreshingly inventive and true to the feel of the comics.

 

Well, this is a great thread for me. The only issue being that I don't watch that many films (that I haven't seen before) on my own. I watched two on Monday with a friend but we didn't finish either of them. They were Body Parts (1991) and The Human Race (2013). We expected them to be silly, crappy horrors and ended up seeming better and more serious than you would think. Wasn't in the mood for anything but trash so we turned them off :P

Captain America: Civil War, X:Men Apocalypse. I enjoyed both, action packed. The first few movies I've actually seen in theaters for 2 years.

One of my favourites in the sci-fi/horror genre.

13 hours the secret soldiers of benghazi

I watched it again and now own it on DVD. I really like it and was well made I thought. True deep stuff.

The Astronaut's Wife, We Need to Talk About Kevin

 

The first was so terrible that it read like porn fanfic of a better movie. 

 

The second, I was not prepared for. I knew there was a darker theme but the strong melancholy undertones gave me an ick feeling which means it was super effective and I loved it. I do not rec it if you're going through a down period.

@Ryuuka I don't mind a dark theme...i think it does me less harm than a comedy using kind of shallow humor. (Tragicomedy is fine)... and morover watching a comedy i always have to think something is wrong with me..., on the other hand i wasn't more depressed after 'The Piano' which is dark a lot.

Kevin is a fantastic movie but as a central theme is that of the mother going through post-natal depression and the debate over whether or not that contributed to Kevin's behaviours, yeah it's quite bleak and not for when one is feeling fragile.

Once a friend and I watched a harmless looking cheesy horror movie called Let's Scare Jessica To Death. Expected fun tripe, got something way to close to the knuckle for two people with health issues. There was something about vampire-like creatures yes but the main focus was a surprisingly realistic (and wonderfully acted) portrayal of a woman who had briefly been in hospital and had now escaped to the countryside for some healing time. Every bizarre incident only really worried her because it might be the final confirmation that she had lost her sanity. One of those films I actually reccomend checking out for its relatable issues, buuuuut at the same time I don't because it will leave you feeling rubbish afterwards :S

The last film I actually watched was The Darwin Awards earlier this week. Awesome film, about an ex police detective with an over-cautious personality (and a tendency to faint at the sight of blood) who becomes an insurance agent who goes about proving that the client and their questionable intelligence were at fault. Has quite the cast including Winona Ryder and cameos from Metallica and the Myth Busters. Could easily see a TV series continue the stories.

Sorry to hear you weren't a fan. Though I'm aware I'm one of the very few people who loved it. To me, this was more of a faithful portrayal of the DC Universe than any film before it. I'm one of the biggest fans of DC Comics around, particularly of Batman (Batman the Animated Series is perhaps my second favorite TV series of all time). The tone of the film and the amount of info packed into it simply felt like one of the recent animated films or pretty much anything from the Dark Ages comics or since then. For better or worse, that's how the DC stories have usually been. At least to me anyway. I completely accept the criticisms thrown against the film, though I can defend every one of them.

The Shallows and it was unbelievably brilliant! I thought though.. I love sharks and love how it kept me on my  edge of my seat the whole time. Twists and turns and the girl was badass! I thought it was well made and the story was good. I recommend it. If you seen or ever heard of Jaws the movie this one is like a whole new generation of it. I want to see it again.
