A thread for your ratings and short reviews of the most recent films you've watched. Remember to be mindful of spoilers as a courtesy to those who haven't seen the movie yet.

Get it.



George Miller topped himself with this post apocalyptic masterpiece. I'd argue it's one of the best action films of the decade. This movie hits all of the notes that make a great action film. There several indelible characters here from Max, Furiosa, Immortan Joe, Nux to the other war boys, the prized breeders, and the dry old ladies in the desert. No one can forget the dude with the flaming guitar. The pulsating musical score pounds to the beats of each adrenaline rush fueled car battle. This film has some of the best practical effects to create real time action, probably, ever.

I was immensely entertained when I saw this film in theaters and again when I saw it on Blu-Ray. Everything I had enjoyed about the film the first time still had the same effect on me and my excitement for the film has not waned. This is an epic film of tremendous quality. Fury Road is a full throttle, action movie executed with noticeable care and meticulous thought at every turn. So much about this movie is elite: the directing, the action, the score, the cinematography, the acting by the three leads (Hardy, Theron, Hoult), the imaginative world that was created, the creativity of the characters. A tour de force in film making.

Movie rating (out of 4 stars): ★★★★

New thread smell! Thank you, @Clique!

Saw Excalibur again. An excellent take on the Arthurian legend and a breathlessly comprehensive telling of Thomas Malory's fifteenth century romantic work, Le Morte d'Arthur. A cast stacked with powerful British thespians, including Nigel Terry as King Arthur, Nicol Williamson as Merlin, Helen Mirren as Morgana, Nicholas Clay, Cherie Lunghi, Gabriel Byrne, Paul Geoffrey and Patrick Stewart and especially Liam Neeson and Ciaran Hinds before anyone knew who they were, this cinematographic treasure directed with utmost reverence and dedication from John Boorman is a wonder to behold again and again, in all of its ungainly unwieldiness and overindulgence. Splendid.

KRISHA (2015)

Krisha returns for Thanksgiving dinner after ten years away from her family, but past demons threaten to ruin the festivities.

A real knock out, harrowing, emotional family drama that's made by a debuting young director / writer / actor like he's been doing it 30 years. Amazing.

It's autobiographical and stars the directors Aunt as the title character and some of his family too.

Remember.

Christopher Plummer stars as a man who escapes from a nursing home to hunt down the man who killed his family during the Holocaust.

Return to form from the original. More of the dour harbingers blended w/the slow building to the violence among the horny teen characters. This time the legend of Camp Blood is more prominent. Identity of Jason is around, yet w/most not buying into the fanfare. Camp fire shenanigans, wanting to move past transgressions that plague the camp biz. Always ignoring the signs until the darkness has cast over all the bodies.

Epitome of a final girl outlasting the rest, dodging the terror and attempting to outsmart the threat. *She* was the only persona who gave any rational, deep thought to the logic within the myth of Jason. It builds off wise fortitude to outlast. Jason at his most human is striking. Presenting the questions if all Jason knows is his mother and nothing beyond. Death to teens means nothing, but death to Mrs. Voorhees means everything. Through the loss he grows. How some couldn't see he'd grow stronger, including earning mystic properties, is a bit beyond me. Seemed like the progression from the very start. It was through this human oddity not being fully aware of all things just yet, which gave way to one of the teens to make it out alive. Like the franchise itself, Jason's mind & immortality would only continue to grow.

Damn man props to Christopher Plummer for still going at his age. Dude is 87.

The Skin I Live In: Not only does the title work as a slogan for Nivea, it's also an intriguing
movie. I can't really summarize this movie without spoiling anything so I'll just give you my thoughts.
The story is quite disturbing to say the least yet it felt easy to watch. I suppose that's because it was
rather psychological than graphic. The pace, the runtime and acting where all on point. Nobody could've
been a better choice than Antonio Banderas to be casted as the plastic surgeon. The Skin I Live In isn't
the most touching or moving film but it's something that keeps you hooked every single minute,
wondering what'll happen next.


Rating: 7.75/10

I don't read comics but I've seen almost all of DCs animated movies. Personally I really liked it but I'm not sure if it's for everyone.

Deathstroke is an absolute bad ass in this.

It's a good addition to DCAU and definitely worth the watch.

8/10.
Watched it yesterday and agree 100%

Some Teen Titans animation in last years, wouldn´t surprise me to see a movie of them in 3-4 years.

They were planning to do a TV series but scrapped it.

No idea why they decided to do that stupid Legal/Insurance show instead. I tried watching it the other day and it was absolutely terrible. Vanessa Hudgens ... Ugh.

DC's live action is probably the worst thing in the world right now. They had good first seasons with Arrow and Flash and Legends of Tomorrow S1 was fantastic but it's all been downhill since.

Arrow season 5 says otherwise :cudi but i agree on Flash,show is still good,but not where it was season 1.



Anyway I watched the last two Teen Titans movies today



I'm not the biggest TT fan in the world, but i've enjoyed t he stuff i've seen and when you get the JL involved i'm certainly interested. My main complaint is that for a movie that is called "Justice League vs Teen Titans" there's hardly any vsing going on. they fight for maybe 3 or 4 minutes max i think and the real story is something else. That would have been a bigger complaint if the story had sucked,but it was pretty good and fairly emotional.

I'll give it a b-






I just wasn't as interested in this movie for whatever reason, and i kept pausing it so that might affect the rating. It's not bad,but just not great


i'll give it a C

Managed to get through 2 and a half with Arrow and halfway through the second in the Flash before it just became unbearably bad for me. There's just too much stuff I'm in the middle of right now to want to go back to them tho.

I Love You, Man(2008)

Was weird. Paul Rudd had more chemistry with his man friend Jason Segel than his cute fiance Rashida Jones. Maybe I should've taken the title of the movie more seriously. 7/10
