'Kong: Skull Island' (2017)

Plot: IMDB
A diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers unite to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.

Phantom's Review: Let me say right at the beginning, I liked this movie. It delivers everything it promised. Decent acting, great special FX , monster fights and lots of big dumb action. If anything the film reminds less of the original film and more of the Japanese Kong movies. Leave your brain at the door and have a good time.

Don't Breathe  2016



Pretty decent thriller up to a point with some nice twists until the plot takes a dumb u turn in the final quater and spoils things..

Transcendence

Directed by Wally Pfister.. Generally regarded as one of the best DP's in the business having worked with Christopher Nolan on Dark Knight, Inception etc... This is his directorial debut..

Starring Johnny Depp

This film tanked on release, lost money and got pretty bad reviews all round..

I enjoyed it, reminded me of Sci fi movies from the 70's like Andromada Strain, Silent Running etc.. I thought
it had good ideas, was well acted, ambitious, was surprisingly low on big crowd pleasing scenes and concentrated more on ideas.. and I think its a film that has plenty of them and isnt afraid to make its ideas central..
Interesting, not perfect  (some clunky dialogue.. what sci fi doesnt have)  but good effort.. Brave and interesting.

I'd be interested to hear what any other members thought..

Well it took me a while  :)
Nevertheless I didn't like it.Great idea but,the acting was bad,there was no such thing as the so called  director's touch and the result was a film with no soul...

^ Franco Nero starring in an Enzo Castellari film? I'd watch it. I like Keoma anyhow.

A few weeks ago I caught most of a movie called Girlfriends from 1977 or '78 (the credits listed 77, IMDb lists 78). I really liked what I saw so ordered the DVD through the library. It's just a little slice of life indie movie about a young photographer trying to make it after her best friend gets married and leaves her living alone.

And it was fun to see Eli Wallach in a guest starring role in it as a rabbi.

Petes dragon original 1977. Helen Reddy and Mickey Rooney. Loved this movie as a kid. Had to buy it on DVD. Brings back a lot of great memories. Not a big fan of musicals. But I absolutely loved this one. Helen Reddy is a phenomenal singer. Absolutely love her voice. Read up on her she moved back to Australia her native country. Where she is retired. Also read she has dementia. Which is sad. I really enjoyed watching petes dragon it keeps me young at heart. And I espicially enjoyed listening to Helen Reddy sing.

I woke up in the mood for muppets -- and a few of their best songs were sticking in my head, so I did a Muppets Marathon. I could do this all day. Surely, there's no better actor than Kermit, nor better songwriter. Muppets all the way.  O0

Rear window. The original James Stewart and Grace Kelly.

This movie really didn't age well. But I absolutely love it. It is very unique and different. It's one of those movies that slowly creeps up on you and gets more exciting and better the further it gets into the movie.  The ending was something unique and different as well. I really enjoy watching it.

Yeah rear window is something different. A defenate classic. The movie gets better and better the further you get into it   Then suddenly it's heart pounding thrilling action. I like how all those people lived there lives and how he watched them and new everything going on with them. It's almost like it could be a true story. I don't think that's too far fetched. But it's a great relaxing movie to watch. Espicially really late at night.

I went to a special screening of Clue last night (also showing in theaters on Wednesday). I've seen this movie several times but knew it'd be fun to see it with an audience, and it was. It's such funny movie, and Madeline Kahn and Eileen Brennan steal the show, though all of them are great.
