    I saw Interstellar last night. Plenty of homages to 2001 and while it requires the suspension of some disbelief, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Just saw Intersetellar.

    It felt like M Night Shyamalan doing his version of Contact.

    Some nice Blade Runner inspired visuals in the beginning, but ultimately too derivative and uneven.

    Sunset Blvd Classic.

    Boiler Room Such an awesome B-movie predecessor to Wolf of Wall Street. Good pacing and story (although with a weak ending) with excellent casting and performances; everyone is great, but Ron Rifkin makes it feel like a documentary.

    Shotgun Stories First feature film from the director of Take Shelter and Mud, which were both excellent. Budget for this one felt much smaller, but everything about it was great.

    Mystery Road was ok. Cinematography was beautiful. Casting was great. Had one of the best shoot-outs I've seen in a while. Dragged a little, but I felt it contributed to the overall unsettling feeling of the film. Story felt incomplete - they introduced a bunch of things that were never fully explored. Reminded me of The Rover (which was much better).

    Camp X-ray I didn't expect to, but I liked it.

    The Fault in our Stars Couldn't get past the first ten minutes. Couldn't stand the smug, irreverent, know-it-all teenage leads.

    Obvious Child had its moments. Was overall enjoyable.

    Four Lions dragged a little, but there were quite a few literal LOL moments. You probably have to enjoy this type of comedy (which I do) to enjoy the film (which I did).

    The One I Love requires bit of suspension of disbelief, but is really well done. I've watched Mad Men since the beginning but somehow never really noticed what a great actor Elisabeth Moss is until I saw her in this.

    I could, but lately I have been enjoying the movies more with friends.

    Ending up going out but was too late for Interstellar. Saw John Wick instead. Heavy action, lots of killing, somm cool songs and buildings/rooms, and an interesting portrayal of a fictional crimial world, but I cant say I loved it. It was a fun watch, but thats about it. Some of it was a bit too slow/faux thoughtful. Had they cut that out and just sold the gratuitous action I may have liked it more, idk.

    # Making her think it was her idea
    Watch it as a prequel to Rick's walkabout through post-apocalyptic Georgia, if you must -- but do watch it. It is one of the best movies of all time. :hide:

    Interstellar was great. Definitely worth the extra 5 bucks for imax. 70mm film is beautiful.

    Obviously requires some suspension of disbelief, but I thought it was great how spot on the science was for the non fictional elements.

    Rocky

    Had never seen it before. I guess now I have about 15 sequels to watch.

    KLUTE the fashions are unbelieveable and its been years since I've seen it. Not bad viewing for a Monday night.

    Going to see Fury tomorrow heard mixed reviews but for $6 at the cinema i'm not complaining.

    I started it a few months ago, but was interrupted. Should probably finish it up sometime.

    FURY not sure what the message was there or even if there was one, or for that matter WTF it was on about. Saving Private Ryan had a story along with an opening twenty minutes of spectacular cinematography. Fury visually looks good but I would not have enjoyed paying full price for a ticket for supposed entertainment value.

    It was just some good old revenge fantasy.

    I liked this until the ending, which I didn't 'get'. Interesting perspective on corporate politics from 1956.

    Not a bad British/terrorism flick.
