Old fashioned Netflix (DVD).

Fury: 7/10

It was good, but I thought they overdid the gritty realism of war to almost ridiculous levels. It resembled more of a Vietnam war movie in trying to be more edgy. I also would have liked a little more story at the end--some kind of epilogue.

Yup. Really hoping those rumors of making a true franchise out of it are true. As long as it keeps the same quality... I would be up for a movie every two or three years. Just a lot of directions the universe could go as far as telling the story. The found footage in the original Cloverfield was excellent and one of the first movies I watched using that style of film making. Of course then the mystery psychological sci-fi action thriller that was Lane :lol Almost a melting pot of categories perfectly combined into one great film.

Only question is, would a third Cloverifeld keep with Michelle's story of fighting in Houston... or branch off.

Finding Dory - 8/10

Started off a little slow (for me) but picked up and was quite powerful. The hijinx were a bit over the top, but the movie was well made and lots of fun.

Like Toy Story 1, 2 and 3, it has much of the same story beats as its predecessor, and like TS, it never feels old.

Also 3D was quite good, it was never used in a gimmicky way, but worked especially well in the aquatic environments.

Audience applauded at the end, which doesn't happen often, even though I'll never completely understand the concept.

Stay til after the credits, a nice little nod to the first movie.


The short that preceded Dory was quite startling. Piper, as it's called was so photorealistic, that a few people in the theater actually thought it was live action at first, it was stunning to see.

Absolutetly. I know it turned a lot of people off with all that body horror, but there's a careful constructed love story within it that I think was compelling enough. Not something I've seen done EVER in the genre.

Cronenberg's commentary on it said he hasn't seen it in years and it actually disturbed him to watch since the whole mutation into the space bug thing was actually symbolic of the aging process.

Also helps that Howard Shore's tracks are sheer magnificent.

I'm pretty bummed that FOX didn't green light his proposed sequel. It was going to take place in the same universe, but have nothing to do with the former characters, but deal with teleportation again.

Got to agree, it definitely transcends genres. It's a pretty disturbing film to watch thanks to the special effects, but what really gets under my skin watching it now is the relationship dynamic and the human performances. I wish Hollywood would go back to making more of these thoughtful, lower-budget genre films aimed at adults.

Most of Cronenberg's early work is pure gold. Scanners and Videodrome are two films I can watch endlessly and never really get bored of.

I also had no idea he almost made a proper sequel to this. I guess it's time to read up on that and be sad...

I'd give an arm to at least see the script... IIRC FOX wanted to go a cheaper route since Cronenberg wanted really high end effects. Amazing to think studios would pass on an obvious hit and would rather put out **** on the cheap.

I'm sure Chris Walas would return too to do the effects.

I love Scanners and Videodrome too, more of Shore's excellent music in there. Videodrome predicted the Internet.

Fierce People. 2005. Starring Donald Sutherland.

Strange movie. I only watched because it was something I'd
never seen before. Was kind of interesting. Chris Evans was
in it, albeit in a small role. He played a crazy guy. It was not
his best role. Anton Yelchin starred in it, and was very good.
He also had played Chekov in the last 3 Star Trek movies. I
only just now read of his death as I had looked up the movie
online. Very sad. He was 27. Star Trek Beyond is the most
recent of the 3 Trek movies he was in. It's due in theaters
next month. He was a great actor.

A must see for those who've only seen the Theatrical Cut.

5/5

I did like Cameron showcasing Sarah's paranoia and prejudice of Uncle Bob, and the chip removal scene was a neat effect with Linda's sister.

Excellent movie. I've always liked Ridley Scott and Matt Damon,
so, the two of them working together is just fine. The movie
is interesting. Splendid script & dialogue. Everything is great
about the movie, which was was an excellent book, BTW. The
set design is outstanding, too.

You can get the Skynet Edition blu ray for $5 which has all 3 cuts of the movie (sans the insignificant Australian and T-100 cuts), although you might be better off getting the 2015 print which has the previous special features ported from DVD and a different transfer approach.

We still haven't gotten the definitive T2 on blu ray yet, simply because the picture transfer isn't all that great. I always cringe at the "highly acclaimed" Skynet Edition that occasionally bugs out on my player and has horrible DNR (Digital Noise Reduction).

T1 had an amazing remaster few years back, and it looks absolutely jaw dropping but they used the audio mix from the 2001 DVD instead of the original Mono mix, which honestly ruins half the enjoyment of the movie. Oh well.

Oh hell is a place of gore and mutilation, how spooky ooooh, I haven't seen that one before.
Oh interplanetary crew doesn't have the slightest resemblance of protocol or procedure, scientific or otherwise.

This was a waste of time, blergh.

Some interesting, even if unoriginal ideas, I feel like if this was a book, written by a smarter, more educated and more creative person, would be fantastic, but, as is, it apes left and right from brilliant stuff, like any number of vastly superior sci-fi and horror works, without being as successful as those works, I could make a list but it'd be long, but not hard to pin-point said influences, you'll find stuff that ranges from Arthur C. Clarke to Clive Barker.

I went with open arms into this movie, ready to say "it's the first good Paul Anderson movie I've seen", but nope.

I've heard this is considered a "cult classic"? :slap, this is an insult to both sci-fi and horror, but maybe I misinterpreted that and it's supposed to be a "so bad it's good" example, but I don't take sci-fi lightly, sci-fi is meant to teach us stuff, but if it's only cheap entertainment, that's why we have sci-fantasy, don't lower sci-fi to this, this has more to do with Jason X than actual sci-fi, but the insult here is that this tries to be sci-fi...

No remarkable themes, subtext to mention, no depth.

Script is terrible, sets are ok, performances go from ok, to underacted, to terrible, cinematography feels like the work of a novice sci-fi fan, who doesn't understand why sci-fi is cool, even if there's some (probably random) merit to some parts of the movie, cgi is dated but practical effects and composite are mostly very good.... blaaargh, whatever, this is as far as I go :lol I know, ****** review, but ****** movie.

About Time: 7.5/10
Very sweet movie with Domhal Gleeson about a guy that can time travel and how he uses it to meet the love of his life. The movie plays it fast and loose with the time travel rules, so it’s best not to dwell on that because the time travel is not the point of the movie. Lovely message about living your life in the present, without getting too melodramatic.

A Walk Among the Tombstones: 5/10
With Liam Neeson about a grizzled old ex-cop PI. It was fine.

Joy: 5/10
Some very odd things about the movie. It felt very half-baked. The dialogue was either incredibly basic like from a children’s book, or overly flowery and complicated. It seemed like they were kinda going for some kind of fairy tale type of feel, with a fairy god mother of sorts narrating, but then it would disappear for a while. Then the end felt a bit rushed when they were briefly and vaguely going over how her life ends up like.

Witness: 6.5/10

I never saw it before, and was expecting something a lot better given its reputation. I enjoyed it, but the story was pretty cartoonish with the corrupt cops. In terms of the acting, Harrison Ford just being himself at the time, Danny Glover essentially being himself. Little kid being a little kid. Chick from Top Gun being a totally unbelievable Amish person. Worth watching if you are into '80s movies or Hollywood dramas with a touch of action.

Age of Adaline (2015) - 7/10

Enjoyable movie with two very impressive performances by Lively and Ford. I've actually speculated about what our personalities might be like if our bodies never deteriorated over decades and while obviously we'll never know Lively really made me believe that she might be a 107 year old woman living in a 27 year old's body. She exuded "old soul" from beginning to end. And Ford turned in two of his most solid performances in the last 20 years with this film and TFA.

And the guy playing young Ford, so stupid of Disney not to enlist him for the Han Solo spin-off.

Do you have the Harmy OT? I've marathoned all four films (SW/ESB/ROTJ/TFA) twice now since TFA hit blu-ray and once with TFA first and then the OT. It's *amazing* to have these "old" characters in TFA (Han/Luke/Leia) and then go back to the OT as if *it* was the prequel trilogy but have it perfectly match because the younger versions of the characters are really them! It connects TFA to the OT in a way that the OT can never ever truly connect to the PT.

Sure do and I agree. As Luke and Leia continue to develope as characters in the new films( as well as the books. Bloodline was a great Leia story. )it will make the OT all the more enjoyable. I imagine even Chewie will become more fleshed out too. Really looking forward to what's in store for SW.

As far as the PT goes, EM's performance as Obi-Wan is definitive for me and the only thing as a whole I look back on fondly from those films. He embodies young Ben in my mind and makes a great and only memorable connection to the OT for me. TFA however seemlessly continues the main three's story.

Dude, you're killin' me! Since It Follows isn't available to stream on Netflix I watched We Are Still Here last night instead because of your recommendation. :lol What was that? Such an awesome and creepy (even had the hair on my neck standing up) first half and then it just all unraveled into such absurdity. I know I praise films like 10 Cloverfield Lane or The Shallows that take "a turn" right at the end but you just can't have a film be that moody and creepy and sinister and then go right off the deep end and turn into a 90's style Peter Jackson splatter gore comedy at the end. It just ruined it all. The ghosts became a joke, the townspeople became jokes, the internal logic of the ghosts' motivations made no sense, the husband's last line as he looked down the stairs made no sense. Bleh.

Yeah, I can acknowledge the dated practical effects. I probably saw it around the same age as you and I'm guessing I became conscious of the "seams" in the technology when I was in my teens. But for me it's like stop-motion taun tauns. i know it's fake but I wouldn't have it any other way.

The Lord of the Rings:

This is a brilliant film, and even though it’s all about wizards and that and there’s people in caves called Gonads. Um, with beards. Probably Robbie Coltrane’s in it, cause he’s in the other one at the moment. Um, and there’s, it’s all swords and stuff. And there’s some magic. Uh- but he’s actually uh the lord of the rings. It’s like- there’s just one of them, he’s the lord of it. And he’s, he’s excellent in it. - 9/10

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Extended Cut.

A "deconstruction" of the superhero genre that falls flat on its' face with a ridiculous tone, poor characterizations, half-baked themes and execution. Pretentious, overbearing and patronizing. Let the record show that you go watch the Justice League cartoons instead.

2/5.
