Last movie you watched

  • Finally got to see The Wailing, it was worthy of the hype. The slow build in atmosphere and the little dashes of humour that endear you to the characters really set up the tension for the second half ot the film. There's a bunch of twists and turns and double or triple bluffs but not in a cheap Shymalan tweeest way. It all just leaves you questioning things and it's one of the first horror films in a while where I was left thinking about it after the film ended

  • Saw "Your Name" last night, beautiful movie, and probably one of the best films released this year, Im going to try and catch it again tomorrow before its gone from theaters but there was something about the film that while I cant quite put my finger on it, it touched something in me that haven't quite felt from any recent movie ive seen in years

  • Went and saw "Your name" again, I seriously can not find the proper words to describe how much I love this movie. Going to try and catch it again tomorrow, and maybe Tuesday after work. Although I do hate the fact that the closest theatre starting tomorrow is like 45 minutes away.

  • @DMCMaster I love the animation, music, and general vibes of that movie but there were a bunch of inconsistencies that kept me from loving it like everyone else does. In particular,

    The whole time travel twist didn't make that much sense to me after I started thinking about it for a couple minutes. If they're communicating by leaving notes in each other's smartphones, how did they never see the date? Also, in Japanese schools, they write the date on the board every day. They would have noticed this stuff way sooner is all I'm saying.

    Still, it does have a lot of heart, so I get why people like it as much as they do.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Oh man, I felt like home again with these folks when the amazing opening intro started. Couldn't stop smiling for two hours, practically. :) I just love these characters and the way they interact with each other. Gunn's style works super well in all of this. And the music, again! Came home and immediately put The Chain on. Drax has the best lines, so stupid, but I laughed the most with him. :)

  • @Sentinel-Beach Dang it I didn't realize that was out. I need to make time to watch it. Glad to hear a good review.

  • @Tragosaurus It isn't, lol. May 5th is the release date, I'm thinking he was lucky enough to watch an advanced screening. The hype is intensifying, it's almost here!

  • @SabotageTheTruth I was lucky that I live in Europe, I suppose! April 26th was the release day here. It's been this way for some time now with MCU movies. It's kinda weird that you guys get it a week or so later in the US.

  • @SabotageTheTruth Well good! Then I have time. I still gotta see The Fate of the Furious, and the ridiculous action nonsense that movie will be.

  • Watching Journey 2: The Mysterious Island on TV while I do homework.. I don't know why but I get a kick out of not very good movies of this type

  • Watched Colossal last night. My date wanted to discuss the psychological profile of abusive relationships afterwards. Jason Sudekis is surprisingly (to me) pretty good against type. Liked it.

  • Damn apparently The Circle sucks.. I was looking forward to it

  • @Faaip Also disappointed, I thought it had an interesting premise and a good cast. I'll still probably check it out, just not in theaters.

  • @SabotageTheTruth Yeah I'm still interested in seeing it later on. I don't go to theaters terribly often anyways, only for the big movies.. though that was one I was interested in going for

  • Finally caught Kimi No Na Wa / Your Name. The hype is real. A+

  • @TokyoSlim
    Ended up seeing that 3 times, hell I'd probably catch every screening I could if it weren't for the fact that as of the last theatre near me still playing it is like 45 minutes away (if traffic isn't bad), also doesn't help that it was a shitty theatre (whole place smelled like something died)

  • @DMCMaster Yeah, I'm lucky enough to live in a place where it's had a nearly monthlong run at the theater within walking distance of my house, and now that's over - it's playing at the arthouse theater about 2 miles away and then at another modern multiplex near my dad's house that's about 20 min away.

    Also, I may or may not have been in possession of a DVD screener for 6 months that I never actually got around to watching. :o

  • Watched GOTG2 this morning. Literal laughter, literal tears. Recommended, not perfect, but very fun and surprisingly emotional!

    Then came home and watched Mad Max Fury Road with the Ian and Huber commentary track.

    watch GOTG2 yesterday. I really liked it! That credits opening scene did beat Deadpool which I loved a lot, Also it made me laugh and cry, so worth a watch!

  • I saw GOTG2 on Friday... something about it just did not resonate with me the way the first one did. Everything was there, they grabbed all the little pieces people loved about the first movie, but for some reason it never clicked into place for me. The climax was stretched out for too long. I knew what the resolution would be an hour into the movie and I found myself wishing they would just get there already. The first movie was pretty transparent and unsurprising with how things would go, but I think it got there a lot faster, or maybe it didn't and that is why 2 made me impatient. Maybe it's because the first movie had the element of surprise, Marvel movies hadn't been quite so silly yet and they weren't giving us a lot of morally grey characters, so the first movie was a fun change of pace.

    Overall it was fine but I didn't feel like 2 really elevated itself past the original. It's still fun, irreverent, and full of zippy one liners but something about it just slightly missed the mark for me personally but I imagine most people will love it and that's fine.
