Welcome to the desert of the real. One of the best sci fi films of the past twenty years.

There is no spoon only your self that bends. Dialogue is out the window.

Superb cast and direction picked up a swag of Oscars and BAFTA awards.

Conceptually,narratively and visually sublime. Loaded to the hilt with visual, cultural, literary and postmodern references. Great way to start the new year.

Overall it’s just so fucking cool.

Monster's Ball. Pretty good. I appreciate movies that are subtle in their emotions. Halle Berry is one of the hottest women ever.

The Matrix is only required viewing so you can get the millions of references to the Matrix that there have been.

Agree, the sequel films just didn’t cut it at all. Sad as the story had potential to go somewhere very interesting.

Bird Box...

This had potential. It had a sorta Survivors(BBC) and The Purge feeling......

That's it. That's my recap.

I really don't have anything else to say about this. I guess Netflix is throwing BIG BUCKS
Just caught this today, without knowing anything about it. It’s pretty much exactly like The Happening. It kept me engaged throughout, and I didn’t want to look down at SF on my phone, which is more than I can say about most movies these days.

Surprise appearance by John Malkovich, lol...

My wife and I enjoyed Bird Box, and I agree it was reminiscent of The Happening. I don't know why it's so polarizing.

Maybe because it’s initial setup was a biological warfare premise then you find out it’s a horror flick with some shapeless entity with attitude?

I have never watched Grave of the Fireflies. Tried this morning and only made it through about 20 minutes.
A great movie. Not so much because it's really good tragedy porn, but because of the moralizing---it's more subtle than a 19th-century fairy tale but every bit as harsh.

In case you didn't pick it up, the kids didn't have to die; the film's very Japanese moral is that the boy should have just swallowed his pride and taken what his aunt was willing to give him. It amazes me how few people who liked the movie got what it was trying to say.

Pretty good adventure-comedy film that is basically a subtle satire of the genre. Worth watching when you want to relax and have a laidback evening with your lady.

First time watching and I loved this. It's rather hard to be emphatic with the characters in anything other than the plight of having a 'meaningful life'. It's a quite remarkable movie that doesn't get preachy or offer easy answers. One of the my favourites now.

Probably favourite zombie movie to date. It's quite smart movie for what you would expect for zombie movie it has quite strong postmodern vibes. London could be swarming with zombies right now, but then again what's the difference;) ?Recommended.

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Takes me back to high school. Really fun movie, and cool cast.

Quite a good film. Avoided it for a while and some how ditched it after a few minutes some time ago. Finally committed to it tonight and was pleasantly surprised. Some of the characters do some incredibly dumb (but not unbelievable) things.

I just saw Aquaman and it was every bit as bad as I expected. I thought I might improve the experience of watching teh movie by seeing it on a big screen but I was wrong.

Still, it was better than some other DC superhero movies (admittedly a very low bar)
