    Ocean 8, was my last one, and eventhough remakes with an all female cast can be a dud, (Ghostbusters a good example) this was actually pretty good.

    Worth watching, renting, and maybe buying.

    Ok, genre, Oceans 11, type format, (crime/black comedy) based around a heist in Paris, well thought out storyline, and leaves the last ghosties in the dust.

    Avengers: Infinity War
    a huge buzz, suspense, rumours and wait, MCU Avengers- Infinity war, steeped into theater worldwide. It was the third part of 'Avengers' series which brought most of the Marvel's superheroes together and first time the fans got chance to meet most powerful villain of MCU, 'Thanos'.
    If I have to express everything about this movie in a single line, I would say it was a portrait of Thanos and yeh, it was obviously a villain centered movie in a positive way.

          What, the guy with the charm bracelet fetish, does achieve his dream of watching the sunset and slaying a few ..... humans.

          And in a thousand years when he cannot overcome, a takeout order for an Indian Curry, no doubt iron man and a few others that are still kicking, and have a time device will nab him?

          That or a Krispy Kreme with pink icing and cream filling donut, (he looks like a pink icing kind of dude, lol).

          Or they just ignore all of the fight scenes and so forth, go back in time and get rid of him when he was a baby?????

          Gee, l am glad l didn't go to the cinema for that one.z

    I watched that last half of ready player one a few weeks ago..

    basicallt i think the date of the movie is 20 years in the future .. where the economy sucks for most people so they live their lives in a virtual world called the oasis ..

    and if you have outstanding debt and are good at game .. a corporation is able to buy that debt and force you to play from what are called loyalty center .. until you earn enough in the game to pay off the debt ..

    after that the plot is better explained in a trailor for the movie than i can do

    Marvel Comic Heroes

    It is essentially the background story and beginning origins of the Marvel Hero of the same name, how he develops his character, strengths, weaknesses, and scenarios of him utilizing his super hero skills.

    As with all superhero stories, he encounters his first villain, and we see the trials and tribulations he must go through.

    It was ok (mas o menos)...I generally liked the hero and his qualities of virtue and principal. However, as with all movies these days, it was loaded with too much political rhetoric and some of the attempts at trying to be cater to popular mainstream trends was unauthentic.

    However, the back story line is pretty cool, and I liked several of the actors/actresses.

    I would recommend just renting at home on Netflix.

    He only killed off 3 billion people on Earth, thankfully including spidy and the guy with the silly eye patch, (no not thor).

    He left Iron man thought, so happy ending.

    Sorry to hear that.

    Before going off the franchise for good take a look at the Death Star one, that was actually pretty good. Available on Netfix and whatever...

      No, just saw Solo, and it was good, but dragged on too much for my liking.

      And yeah, they did push the Kessle-run thing a bit too much.

      2.15 minutes, not including ad's, so almost three hours in the theature.

    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. A classic, no matter where you watch it. Cowboy/adventure. Butch and Sundance are historical figures, OUTLAWS, bank and train robbers. The movie is about their shenanigans.

                Last one l saw was Jurassic Park, part 20, (lost count) which wasn't bad, but the franchise is clearly running out of steam.

                And not even the Raiders type music for the trucks, (Spielberg) and the reasonably sexy red-head was enough.

                The obvious happens at the end, to keep the franchise some more life, but still.

                Wouldn't spend money in the theatres anymore for this one.

                Watched Skyscraper recently, and not a bad movie all up, unless you are afraid of heights then maybe not.

                Typical Dwayne Johnson movie, a good way to kill 2 hours, but better as a rental than actually buying the DVD, if you are not into theatres.

                I have watched Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. To me, it wasn't the best. I love the franchise, but the movie seem a little bit... too forced. Captain Jack feels like played by someone that tries to imitate Johnny Depp. Same with Hector Barbossa, the character didn't felt like him. I personally think that the movie was saved by the new characters.

                Still worth it tho, for a POTC fan.

                The Arrival was my last one, to date, and not bad, but not really something you would go to the theatre for or buy as a DVD.

                Interesting how they showed a possible scenario of how humanity would handle first contact, and how some won't, which is an understatement.

                Fear is irrational and is usually based on supposition, whereby familiarity reduces the fight or flight reaction and allows for intelligent reactions and thoughts.

                Least that is what l got from that one, and flashbacks suck and hording popcorn is a good thing.

                Just watched First Man at IMAX, brilliant movie, and certainly a lot more mishaps occurred than l realized.

                And evidence is self evident, and ...ummm, never mind.

                PS Spielberg helped with directing it, and l didn't see Tom Hanks name, but it is likely he helped out. And yeah, the closeups, were a bit full on.

                Just watched Deadpool A Christmas Special, (well something like that) and pretty funny exerts as well as additional scenes, perhaps.

                Not worth the price of admission, but probably worth it as a rental, (some additional scenes where hilarious).

                Thinking about rewatching Dumb and Dumber, might get some insights as to why stupid people do equally stupid things and hope that it will all magically work, (l will if the power stays on).

                I just went to the movies and watched Glass...the third movie in the Unbreakable series.

                It wasn't really what I expected. If you are going, thinking that it's a super hero movie, you'll be disappointed. But as a drama? It was pretty good. A few twists at the end, and perhaps the best acting I've ever seen on screen...from James McAvoy.

                  Another one on Rotten Tomatoes that got 36% from the critics and 77% from the viewers. What a divide.

                  "Glass from the Unbreakable series" is rather a humorous line if you think about it.

                  I read the synopsis and failed to comprehend. Perhaps if I'd seen the previous ones?

                  M Night Shyamalan's stuff is always interesting and always strange.

                    Shyamalan made three movies in the series. Unbreakable, Split, and Glass.

                    For whatever reason many of his movies get trashed by critics. I've enjoyed every one. He's a gifted story teller.

                    Shyamalan almost directed Life Of Pi. It had a twist ending of sorts. I read the book(before the movie), and after the last sentence...sat silently for a log time...just taking it in.

                    It may have been the closest thing to a spiritual experience that I ever felt. A beautiful...powerful...story.

                    Shyamalan turned it down because he loved the story, and was afraid that if his name was attached, the viewing public would just see the twist at the end...and ignore the profound lesson taught.

                      I thought Life of Pi was one of the best stories told in a movie ever and the visuals added to the great story.

                And yeah, Mark go and watch Unbreakable first, this won't make as much sense if you don't.

                This one just started here, and not so sure if it is worth the price of admission, but probably worth a look.

                  Same here. I do watch T.V. series mainly because they are recorded, so I can always pick up where I left off when the grand children, nieces and nephews finish a visit.

                Just watched the trailer to "Spiderman, Far from home", with groan, and why, being my dominant thoughts.

                I won't post the trailer here, as l don't want to torture members.

                And sure it has shield in it, and is set in Venice, no doubt to milk as much from the comotozed fan club as is possible.

                Ok, here it is.


                As you can see, cliched story, predictable monsters to fight, and wall to wall boredom.

                I would say that the company has well and truely milked the franchise, and is just showing rehashed, til they turn a loss.

                If this comes out on DVD, l will probably give it a miss, l would rather watch Devil Woman from Mars, at least it is fresh and you cannot tell if she takes a few men with her or not.

                Spidy is getting like a blocked public toilet that is overflowing, best to shut the door, shake your head and walk away.

      Yep, hate to say it, but it was pretty good, (just went to see it to get out of the heatwave we are getting, "The end,... never mind").

      The fight scenes wearn't a bore, story, predictable, Atlantis pre-evil weapon causes an earthquake, scene, worth the price of admission, and close to historical data, which made it even more cooler, the rest, visuals with a melting mainframe, (a million things on screen at once) but all in all, not the usual, alien menace, with an oversized multidimensional blender in the middle of a city, with the supermob fighting it.

      And destroying as many skyscrapers as possible for eye candy, with thankfully no bra-, never mind.

      Worth the 2.20 and there is a scene in the end credits to tie up a loose end, (l didn't wait til the end credits, as l really couldn't be stuffed to learn that King Neptune, gets overthrown by a giant squid).

    Netflix originals:
    The Outlaw King (based on the legend of Robert The Bruce);
    The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs (an anthology western from the Coen brothers);
    Black Mirror: Bandersnatch (an interactive tale with multiple story lines and endings);
    Apostle (the story of a sinister religious cult on an isolated island);
    Bird Box (a post apocalyptic thriller with Sandra Bullock in the lead);
    Operation Finale (based on the true story of the capture of Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann in Argentina);
    22 July (based on the true story of the neo-nazi who went on a shooting spree in Norway in 2011).

    Not Netflix originals, but saw them on there anyway:
    Legend (the story of the notorious Kray brothers who ruled London's underworld in the 1960s);
    Midnight Express (hadn't seen it since it was originally on in cinemas in 1979);
    American Graffiti (likewise, hadn't seen it since its cinema release in 1974);
    Arrival (that rarest of creatures - an intelligent sci-fi film);
    Interstellar (as far fetched as shit from China, but entertaining anyway).

    (Please note that these are movies I've watched since my last post in this thread, and not necessarily watched them in the last few days, although I did watch Black Mirror: Bandersnatch this morning. I'll be watching it again and again over the next few days playing with the alternative story lines and endings.)

    Also, every James Bond film ever (including the 2 non-official ones) have been added to Aussie streaming service Stan. So will be indulging myself and watching them in order over the next few weeks or so.

    Last one for me was Creed 2. Great to see Ivan Drago back on the screen!

    It was essentially Rocky 8 and reminded me of the storyline of Rocky 3, with the drama of Rocky 2.

    Recently watched Bohemian Rhapsody very dramatic movie I give it an 8/10 a good one to watch at home. I watched the Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie in theaters it was very entertaining and took the time to explain what happened to the Saiyans. Fun animation movie to see on the big screen I give it a 9/10.
    Watched Venom at Home Awesome to see Venom in his own movie 8/10. Mortal Engines in the movie theaters Visual Masterpiece worth the movie ticket 9/10. And Bumblebee was also great too, nice Tha transformers are getting back to their roots 10/10.

      Yep, last one l saw was Edge of Tomorrow, which was actually a pretty good movie, a bit like Platoon, meets Independance Day and Groundhog Day.

      The creature aspect was oh hum but the clever storyline around the time affect was what made it worthwhile.

      Wreck it Ralph, was good, especially the Princess part, brilliant.



      This looks interesting, albeit some of the action scenes may not be.


      And yep, Frozen Two, Infinity war 2, and Captain America, (beats me 20) is getting dragged through the mud again, (female this time).

      Signature
