    Didn't like the ending AT ALL.

    Made me angry.

    they should have at least shown a sign that the POS father- or whatever he was- would be arrested


    Lanthimos likely is a creep IRL too.

    I watched that years ago after you made a thread about it. Or maybe it was just a post. It was kind of like the Village which most people didn't like either. I remember there was full frontal male nudity too.

    Couldn't agree more, I've just seen the movie last night and it was absolutely great.

    For some reason, The Mark, which is a thriller featuring both the Rapture and the Mark of the Beast. It turned out to be more of of a "terrorists take over plane....good guys try to thwart them" movie, with two curiosities: the lead hero was the accidental test subject for a subcutaneous chip, and midway through the flight, there's a flash of light and a bunch of people vanish from the plane. The movie ends with the hero literally parachuting from the plane into Bangkok, which like the rest of the world has descended into riots and fires. I think I was just in the mood for something apocalyptic. This wasn't quite it, though: just an airplane movie, really.

    Well, not for everyone, definitely not for minors, (toooo much blood).
    Don't expect to understand it, anyway.

    History of the World: Part I. I bought a Mel Brooks box set the other day, this was the first film in it that I watched. I enjoyed it, especially the song and dance numbers. 7/10

    Watched something like 40 min (spread out in the entire 2 hours) of 2004's "The life and death of Peter Sellers".

    Peter Sellers was an utter creep :(

    I always hated Clouseau as well.

    Fantastic movie. Really really liked it. It is suspenseful, the characters are interesting, it got psychological depth, it is smart and offers subtle commentary on contemporary issues and at last it also does a great job to shed light on its central theme - artificial intelligence.
    The best movie of 2014 I have seen so far. Outclasses in its simple execution Birdman or The Grand Budapest Hotel or Whiplash IMO.

    The second best movie of 2014 and I have seen was Guardians of the Galaxy btw (the only Marvel movie which actually was a full-grown good movie). Just to demonstrate that this is not the opinion of an elitist shmug ;)

    edit: Whoops I just saw that wikipedia has it listed as a 2015 movie. Well, I saw a different year elsewhere :shrug:

    Oh, also have seen 300: Rise of an Empire. Expected worse. Not as bad a sequel as Sin City 2. But as everyone and their dog knew beforehand far behind the first 300 movie.

    You are the first person I know who enjoyed that film. I remember sitting all the way through it in the theaters, desparately wanting something funny to happen. :blush:

    Critics are giving this a universal ho-hum, but I LOVED it! :clap:

    Ever since Deep Space 9, I've been railing that science-fiction movies and TV shows no longer have colors. They're all in black, white & grey* and are usually depressing tales about post-apocalyptic disasters. :badcomp: There is no optimism, no joy, no light, no hope. For the first time in the last two decades we see a futuristic** landscape in which I'd like to live!

    Okay okay, in Battlestar Galactic, No. 6 did wear colorful dresses. :salute: but remember: Cylon raiders were black ships against a black background. Who thought up that "brilliant" idea.

    I watched Female Trouble 1974, a John Waters movie with the usual cast, Divine, Edith Massey and Mink Stole. It was his first movie after Pink Flamingos. I thought Pink Flamingos was his only totally gross out movie. Well, Female Trouble wasn't as nasty as Pink Flamingos but it came close. I just wasn't prepared for that. His two movies after that, Polyester and Hairspray were nothing like that.

    Anyway, I didn't really care for Female Trouble. You really have to expect tasteless with John Waters movies but then it just got disturbing and gross.



    Actually I forgot he has another movie after Female Trouble called Desperate Living that I haven't seen. And Divine is not even in it, apparently there were scheduling conflicts.

    Just watched Mad Max: Fury Road finally. Quite good. Like my brother said, though, I wish I could have gone into it without reading any of the hype, because it didn't quite live up to that.

    Jurassic World.

    Meh. By no means awful but the characters were very uninteresting, and the plot was so so.

    Did they find some way to insert Jeff Goldblum into it? Goldblum + dinosaurs = win.

    Inside Out has to be the best film's Pixar's produced so far. Appeals to your emotions as well as it does to your rational thinking.

    I just watched the 2007 version on IFC.

    What a weird flick. Now I'm going to be deathly afraid of polite preppies, especially if they are wearing white gloves and have a remote.

    I just saw Insidious 3 and the day before I saw Jurrasic World. Insidious 3 was a lot scarier than the first two. I read a review that mentioned the pacing was very good and that is really a big part of what made it so scary. The director really knows how to build up tension. I found myself saying "Lady, do not go down those stairs, STOP, STOP, STOP NOW!!!"

    I didn't really like Jurassic World. It was OK but I'm just not impressed by CGI extravaganzas.
