Just got back from Pixar's Inside Out 2. It's a cute animated movie. Even though it was good, I liked the first one a little better.

Any movies you have seen this Summer??

      Every time I see a commercial for the movie, I immediately think of Dancing with Wolves. If in any way the new movie is as good as Dancing with Wolves, I will watch it.

        I saw that movie like 25 years ago. Could hardly remember anything about it. But at the time I do remember thinking to myself what a great flick. Really classic!!

    Well it is freezing here, but ok considering seeing the Latest Mad Max film, (car chases in our outback , etc).

    Surprised with the response and takings for Inside Out 2, since PIXAR's last couple of movies have bombed, (including the Inside Out 1).


    The head of the marketing division and California's stupid laws means that they cannot go into a room and tear the shreds out of an idea or parts of their movies anymore since some aspects are illegal in that state.

    Used to look up to that company and its remarkable run of successes, (have most of their movies on DVD, except Cars) but after John Lassater retired that company has become a movement instead of a children's entertainment company.

    Or a wet dream for Hedge Funds?

    I recommend checking out Black Widow, a thrilling Marvel movie with a great storyline.

  • Yeah, from Thai. Watching movie at the theater always make me feel good. For example, the best one is Avenger: End game. Who else love these?

    More children's movies again I see, lol. To make matters worst, you had already seen volume one. Next time, don't be so selfish and take the kids.

    No, not seen any movies at the cinema for years now. The 65" tv seems to have put pay to that for me. I can wait and get them for free anyway.

    But, here's a question. What movie, perhaps a sequel or Marvel or something, would you absolutely insist on seeing on the big screen as opposed to waiting, and not just going for the kids sake?

      There is a new Superman movie coming out next year, I think. I'll see it in the theater. But the rest? I'll probably see them on Netflix.

        Really, who's playing the role. I thought Cavil was out?

        You know, you can get buttered popcorn in the store.

    No. the Western movie industry is an institution that is well overdue for the ash heap of history. it is the product of a corrupt and decadent culture.

      Nothing wrong with a decent western, in the middle of the Clint Eastwood Good Bad, A fistful of Dollars ones myself but l suspect you are referring to the modern ones that seem to go forever and are deadly dull?

      I know what you mean. After reading about the Roman Empire, I could never watch Gladiator again.

    That was one of my favorites way back then, too. I think this one could be better - i've seen two interviews with Costner where he was talking about making the movies (there will be four of them) and attention to period detail is impressive.

      I , for some reason, have never liked Kevin Costner personally. But putting that aside, he is really a helluva an actor. And the parts he has played have been amazing.

        Shame, he speaks highly of you.

        He never really inspired me as a favorite movie actor. Not keen on westerns either. I just remembered the last movie I saw at the cinema: Dora The Explorer. And yes, their were kids involved as a reason for going. A very adult jokes orientated movie considering. But I slept through some of it.

      Four let me guess the titles.

      #1 Dancing with More Wolves

      #2 Dancing with Wolverine

      #3 Wolves with a Vengeance

      #4 Return of the Wolves

    I Remember watching that when I was 16, without having seen any trailers or really knowing what it was about. That was a truly mind-blowing and amazing experience.

      I was umm and arrning about it and don't get me wrong l love a good horror sci fi movie, but this is outright depressing.

      I mean who wants to see frickin apes take over and turn humans into mutes.

      I was starting to go off the franchise the last one where the humans were denied allowing a hydro plant from starting again.

        The apes never "Turned" the humans into mutes. At least in this franchise.

        And, if you watch this one, without being too much of a spoiler, you will see things starting to look up for the humans.

          Ok so you are saying that this doesn't fit in with the Kirk Douglas 1970s' franchise where the only leg up humans got was detonating the nuclear devise that destroyed the earth in about 2000 years give or take.

            Urm. I think you are confused, it was Charlton Heston who took the lead male part, not Kirk Douglas
