I just recently saw Jurassic World and Fury Road. The former was average at best but the latter was pretty damn good, though rather macabre and bizarre at times.

I have recently watched the Lord of the Rings Trilogy again, followed by the movie adaption of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four.
After watching those two, I watched Ex Machina (this is "must watch" if you haven't done so already).

Downloaded all three The Hobbit movies. I will probably watch them during the night since I have insomnia.

I saw Spectre last night. Their were a lot of things I liked about it, and a lot of things I didn't. Still, it would work fairly well as an end to Craig's Bond (in fact, a sequel might well ruin the ending).

Since someone resurrect this post...I will add something...

How many of you agree that "Kimi No Na Wa" is the best anime movie ever?

I never liked the action-bond that they turned the franchise into. I understand that they seek to
attract a younger audience but it makes for a completely different style.

The only one I actually watched from that was Quantum of Solace, and boy was this bad.
(Should have probably watched Casino Royale instead but I had no real interest ... no idea
why I watched Quantum of Solace either; they also really confused the hell out of that
storyline...)

Yeah the Craig Bond movies are connected unlike the other movies. The last one also trays to connect to the older movies.

I saw Prince of Persia, Sands of Time quite recently and loved it :D.

It actually reminds me of the Wesnoth world a bit. I kept seeing Dunefolk soldiers fighting.

Btw, I wonder what the Hessansins (I'm probably spelling that wrong) would look like in Wesnoth … huh.

Hello, everyone!
Is the The Nun worth the watch? My classmates at uni say that it is average but I want a more wider response.
So, buy a ticket to see or wait for the 720p stream link to be available (2-3 months from now)?

Since this is active again,
Let's see the most disturbed movie list.
I have watched Predestination, and Movie 43.
Next on my list is Mr.Nobody, a Serbian Film and Primer. Anybody got any more?

Hey, it's been bumped... again.

Might as well say that I've been watching "Shin Godzilla" (2016) -- it is a fast-paced thrill ride I'll not soon forget! I love that it's really about how a country responds to such an outlandish emergency, and spends a lot of time showcasing the all the decisions made at even just the appearance of an unknown creature. If anybody's looking to brush up on their Godzilla-fare in light of the "VS Kong" movie that's been recently released, this one's the best place to go as far as newer movies are concerned!
