1/2 way through right now. From the very beginning Don Cheadle makes you believe he is Miles Davis. His screen presence is amazing

Harold a Norwegian furniture maker whose life is turned to shit by IKEA. Embarks on a road trip with absurdly seeking revenge black comic results. Both Mrs GF and I found plenty to laugh at. Overall very funny and entertaining, Didn't know about Ingvar Kamprad the IKEA founders Nazi past. But then they did have furniture packed by East German slave labour in the 70's.

It was the one I preferred over the rather many to choose from ;-)

Have you seen the movie? It's not really scary...

No, I've not seen the movie. Will have to check it out, though I say that about so many films on here!

Glad to have seen it, but I suspect I won't have the same urge to return to it, like I have with 2001, e.g.

Still entertains here 23 years later (and has a couple of scenes that I can't imagine being green-lit in a modern production). Can be easy to forget just how many familiar faces that are on show here: Besides Slater and Arquette we get Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken, Chris Penn, James Gandolfini, Tom Sizemore and Samuel L. Jackson (for 5 seconds). And if you count what goes on in the screens in the background, you get Sonny Chiba, Rene Russo, Emilio Estevez and Anthony Hopkins too.

Even though he didn't direct it, it's one of my three favourite Tarantino flicks (Reservoir Dogs from the year before and Pulp Fiction from the year after being the other two).

Re-watched Barry Lyndon just because the camera work is so awesome.

Deadpool...completely mindless laugh-a-minute, so if that's your mood, you'll not be disappointed.

Somm 2; Into the Bottle. If you are a wine geek it's far better than the first Somm.

Tried this



- but turned it off after 10 minutes. Should probably have checked a review or two or at least its Tomatometer rating in advance.


Put this on instead:



- satisfying seventies Pakula paranoia.

The opening sequence is chaotic (great camera work) and from their it just picks up and runs with it till the climatic car chase in Las Vegas. Interesting while the film was lite on dialogue the imagery conveyed it all you needed to know in terms of narrative exposition. Cast was able and competent for the type of film it is. Tommy Lee Jones perfect as the evil CIA chief. As for Matt Damon his actions did all the talking.

For a Sunday afternoon it was fun.

I enjoyed the first 40 minutes or so, but the combination of shaky-cam camera work and IMAX theater gave me motion sickeness and I had to go walk around outside the theater to keep from throwing up. Nobody else seemed to have this problem, though.

^ I haven't seen this one yet, but one of the reasons my favourite of the first three is The Bourne Identity, is that it doesn't suffer from the excessive shaky-cam introduced by Greengrass.

Cute and better than I expected. The original Star Trek series owes a lot to this (heck, they even reverse the polarity at one point). Has Oscar nominated special effects and maybe the first ever electronic soundtrack (or Electronic Tonalities, as it's credited), years before the invention of the synthesizer. IMO a better movie than The Wrath of Khan. Brilliant poster too.

Initially I found that annoying but after a few minutes I adjusted to it. The technique is so dated, but maybe they think its part of the visual signature of the film.
