No problem I just wanted to be sure - as I've been keeping an eye on that one for a while.

Read some critics about that one in local trash newespaper and they say it's overadvertised and overhyped mediocrity. Won't be checking if it's true - I have too many of exotics that need to be seen and not enough time for (below)average stuff.

Yeah, I thought it was great fun. And, despite not taking itself seriously, a far more coherent tale than many of the comic movies it's lampooning.

If you are willing to view old classics (BW! Slow! Overacted!), this one is golden.

That one comes from times when Hollywood still knew how to make good movies.
It is both masterpiece and a product that needs to be seen before you die.

Skip the silly remake from 90s.

Was there a remake, or are you thinking of Cape Fear?

Haven't seen it yet but your short post sounds positive. Anyway I was re-watching my Nightmare on Elm Street collection. Love those old horror classics.

I'll re-watch the Chucky collection next.

I'm kind of surprised by the love for Deadpool here. I don't plan on watching Deadpool 2, but I thought the first movie was absolutely terrible.

I'm sure I'm probably just missing the point, but that kind of humor just doesn't do much for me. It doesn't help that I think Ryan Reynolds is highly overrated.

I think he's referring to the TV Movie remake of Night of the Hunter:

The remake of Cape Fear was pretty good, I thought.

Ah, a Richard Chamberlain Tv movie. That one flew under my radar.

Yeah, I seem to remember enjoying the DeNiro Cape Fear.

Swiss Army Man. Basically an hour an half long fart joke. I chuckled a few times but it's kinda weird for the sake of weird. I wouldn't say I hated it, but I wouldn't really recommend it.

Life

With Jake Gyllenhal, Ryan Reynolds, and that one Japanese dude from Sunshine, I had decent enough hopes for this movie. It, however, is one of the few recent Sci-Fi flicks that I simply had to stop watching. After 45 minutes of the most ridiculous decisions ever written into the genre (obviously, there would be a makeshift FLAMETHROWER on a space station, and you should totally use it indiscriminately on the walls of said station), I just had to turn this insult to human intelligence off.

The only good thing about Life is that Ryan Reynolds gets killed off fairly early.

The Meg. There I said it I watched it.

It made $45 million last weekend.

I'll share this review I agree with.

I even enjoyed watching the Sharknado franchise on Syfy.

Watched Death Sentence (2007) recently. It's based on the book that Death Wish was based on but is much closer to the source material but updated to the 2000's. Directed by James Wan, it has many very exciting, gritty sequences but is, of course, full of "Oh, for fuck's sake!" moments that stretch you to the outer limits of your belivability. John Goodman has a small role but he's the best thing about it, as is usual with his awesome constitution and acting talents.

Finally got a copy of Black Panther from the library, hoping the wait was worth it. I thought they did a good job of introducing Wakanda as a nation in the Civil War movie, so I'm keen on seeing how it stands up.
