Looking forward to this once I get access to it (along with Manchester by the Sea).MOONLIGHT.
It's absolutely stunning and engaging. Beautiful anamorphic cinematography, a film that depicts a portrait of a character's struggle with life, via tone, mood and a You may not identify with the protagonist directly, but you will certainly relate. Highly recommend. Do NOT watch the trailer! Avoid spoilers at all cost because the film develops into something you've never seen before in a film like this; it plays your expectations like a chess grandmaster and wins each time.
What did you think sucked about it?la la land
should probably stop cinema-dates altogether bc i cant remember the last time a good film came out
youre right, that was a stupid thing to say. for clarity tho, i was referring to films that get screened; only popular/successful films get screened in normal theaters here, because theaters have to go through the trouble of getting movies subtitled before releasing them. films that are less popular or boxoffice-failures get screened in art theaters, but even this is rare bc they mostly just screen old-hollywood/silent films. so cinemas mostly just do big feature films and those tend to be disappointingActually it looks like a number of decent movies came out near end of year. Still there was a glut of so-so in mid-year and fall.
Moonlight is a five-star movie, but I didn't have a large emotional reaction to it unfortunately. It's just very well done.MOONLIGHT IS FUCKING AMAZING IM STILL MINDBLOWN...probably one of the best films i have seen in my life. next im going to see certain women
I guess they just won the Oscar for best picture. I personally think this movie is a bit overrated. Too bad Manchester by the Sea didn't make it.Moonlight is a five-star movie, but I didn't have a large emotional reaction to it unfortunately. It's just very well done.
Yeah, maybe. But so was La La Land.I guess they just won the Oscar for best picture. I personally think this movie is a bit overrated.
That's a really great movie I don't think I have the stamina to ever watch again.Too bad Manchester by the Sea didn't make it.
Great movie.I just watched a classic: Donnie Darko. One of my all time favorites!
Yeah, I read they are gearing up for Mr. Sinister.Logan (2017):
I didn't like Logan that much, although it was good. It was tense. But unbelievable at some parts and just plain too long. There weren't a lot of characters and honestly, the story seemed random like an alternate universe not having picked up where any of the previous X-Men flicks left off. It was sad. I think they hinted at it in Apocalypse too but they might be gearing up for a Mr. Sinister appearance again with this flick. So that is something to look forward to. The girl was kind of cool but small, not sure how they survived all that. The whole movie had me wondering how they were to survive it all. They don't know there will be an explosion until there is one maybe. I wouldn't really watch it again, because it was too random for me.
So the difference between an R and an NC-17 rating is the visibility of public hair -- considering everything else that happened in the movie?The film received an R rating for strong crude sexual content, pervasive language and drug use. When Rogen initially submitted the film to the MPAA, however, they assigned it with an NC-17 rating due to the visibility of pubic hair on Lavash's scrotum. In order to be assigned an R rating, the pubic hair was removed.
Yeah, ratings are a little weird when you think about it. Here, we have U (Universal), PG (Parental Guidance), 12A (basically PG12), 15 and 18. Bare in mind a few other age restriction laws we have here, by 17 years old you can drive a car, have children, own your own home, get a job and be tried as an adult in a court of law. But you can't see a picture of a naked human being or here some four letter words being spoken.EDIT: This is silly.

What movie are you talking about? Or did you mean "Ghost in the Machine"? And is this the Karen Allen movie from 1993 or some other version?Last night I watched Ghosts In The Machine. I saw it on the shelf when I went shopping the other day, and the cover and premise made it look interesting. It was free on Amazon Prime, so I gave it a go. I have to say - I have seen some bad movies. But this one was as if the makers had seen all these bad movies and decided that there's was going to be worse. Like they purposefully tried to make the worst film that had ever been made. And they succeeded. It was absolutely dreadful.
A premise that could have been interesting turned out to be the daftest idea they could think up. It was supposed to involve a VCR that worked without power for a group of squatting students - but it turned out that when they put two old bad movies into the VCR one after the other, the VHS tapes made a baby VHS which was a comical mash up of the previous 2 films. In the last 5 minutes, they must have remembered it was supposed to be a horror film and hurriedly shoved in a poorly executed terribly acted climax.
The acting. I couldn't even take it comically it was so bad. Did they just pick random people off the street with no acting experience ever and ask them to act as badly ass they could? The script wasn't much better.
It only gets one star because of the Laser Dicks joke that made me giggle.
Rating - 1*. Absolutely unbearably dreadful.
I'm talking about this film. I say through Night of the Creeps 2, Demons and American Poltergeist 1 & 2, and neither of those compare to how bad this film is.What movie are you talking about? Or did you mean "Ghost in the Machine"? And is this the Karen Allen movie from 1993 or some other version?
I have Amazon Prime too, so I'll make sure to avoid this one.I'm talking about this film. I say through Night of the Creeps 2, Demons and American Poltergeist 1 & 2, and neither of those compare to how bad this film is.
Depends what kinds of things you find scary.Got any good suggestions for a spine tingling horror for tonight to make up for it?
lol, somebody I used to work with said John Wick reminded them of me. I did immediately relate to his cold, yet passionate anger in the first movie, so maybe that was it. I'll have to see this.john wick 2. a pissed introvert going on vengence against the mafia and violent thugs.
i recommend it, but only as a cautionary tale of not what to do in real life.
