Can recommend Bladerunner 2049. The second half drags a little, but it's an absolute visual treat. See it on the big screen if you get a chance.

I've yet to see Bladerunner 2049. I want to!

I went and saw Thor Ragnorok. It's a treat, well directed fun movie, I enjoyed it from start to finish.

Great if you really know the original(s) well but still could be edited down by at least 30 minutes.

Went to see Suburbicon...



If you like Hitchcock, this is your deal. Really cool and quite dark. I laughed while my wife gasped. :lol:

It actually makes me want to go and see it. Highly unexpected. George Clooney is a comic genius. :popcorn:

The Odd Couple (1968). Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau. What a great movie!

There's a modern TV series with the same name, based on this movie.

^Odd Couple = Great movie!
The 70's TV series with Jack Klugman and Tony Randall was superb! The modern TV series is not as good, IMO.

Just saw "Wonder" in the theatre with Owen Wilson and Julia Roberts...
for a feel-good, family-oriented movie with a message, I recommend...
Very good job of character development, which I find so lacking in modern-day cinema.

Better Watch Out - Australian movie that starts out looking like cliche'd teen Christmas home invasion horror movie but has enough twists & acting/script to take it somewhere else

I watched A Clockwork Orange on the weekend for the first time.
I can understand why it was controversial at the time..,

I've been on a B-grade sci-fi bender lately.
Synchronicity & Infinity Room weren't bad.
I finally got around to watching Cube - pretty good for a low budget film.
And I finally saw Event Horizon, which is not a great movie...
