One of my favorite things to remember is that Magic Mike XXL and Mad Max: Fury Road came out the same year. 2015 was a blessed time.

I forget how much I care about Star Wars until another trailer comes and I'm trying to explain why I'm crying to normal people. It never works.

I saw It last weekend and really enjoyed it.

I found it plenty scary but it also surprised me by how many funny moments it also contained.

These...are GAZEBOS.

I thought It was phenomenal. Way better than I expected. It was much more than a spooky movie, they did a wonderful job making it more of a Goonies-style romp with a lot of texture to it. I know that's sort of how it goes with It, but you never know what to expect. Super impressed with this director, who only had one additional full-length feature to his name beforehand.

in my opinion it is more interesting to bet on horses when you follow the horse for its victories and gambits you can make a good forecast :idea:

What did everyone think of Justice League? I almost wish they had done the stand alone movies for all the characters first- just alot of backstory questions for me. While you did learn a bit about The Flash, Cyborg, and a bit more about Aquaman- I felt let down. My understanding is that the Aquaman movie and the next Wonder Woman are in the works. Ive seen some reports that they may not do separate movies for The Flash and Cyborg because of the numbers from Justice League.

Wonder Woman was outstanding- Gal Gadot is doing a spectacular job

Patiently waiting for some more eye candy time with Jason Momoa as Aquaman :D
I think he fits the role well - and an interesting non-traditional Aquaman from earlier incarnations.

Finally saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi this week. What a great addition to the world of '...long ago, in a galaxy far, far away...!'
It has a lot of emotional scenes, but there is one between Mark and the late Carrie Fisher that is just so.... :cry: If it doesn't yank your heartstrings, then IMHO your heartstrings are busted. :P

Just saw The Shape of Water, and Del Toro's fable is fabulous. Very deserving of all its nominations and awards.
I want to praise the differently-wonderful and scary characters, but I'm afraid to give anything away about them. ;)

Flipped on GET OUT last night, didn't know anything about it ahead of time and I swear the description on HBO said "comedy"

Somebody please explain any humor, thanks.

Academy awards Best actor? Best movie?
don't think so.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I still haven't seen it, so...not yet? :oops:
I'm going to see it, but trying to schedule movie day with my usual companion has been complicated by stuff. I don't really want to go by myself, because I'm pretty sure there's going to be a lot to discuss.
At least we can be pretty sure that it's going to be in theaters for a good long time. ;)

I think certain forum members would rather pretend it doesn't exist... but it was awesome and I'm so happy that it's been this successful. I hope it's a gamechanger for blockbusters (and movies in general) going forward.

There was an interesting article in the LA Times about how blockbuster movies have changed over the last year or so, as 'auteur' directors have created more original takes than the usual comic book fare. Instead of feeling like just more of the same in a line of bigger, louder, more-CGI-is-better, skip-the-character-development movies, we're getting what the author called 'artisanal' blockbusters.
Movies like Logan, Guardians of the Galaxy II, Wonder Woman, Thor: Ragnarok, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and, of course, Black Panther, have given us genre blockbusters that also happen to be pretty damn good movies.

Thanks for chiming in. I thought it was artfully done, with a terrific and sympathetic villain and a very dynamic cast.

And even if certain forum members want to pretend it doesn't exist... REPRESENTATION MATTERS.

Let us know what you think, BA, once you do see it.

I'm SO happy that The Shape of Water won Best Picture. :D
If you want to talk Representation, that movie had it all. 8-)

I did not see this movie, so am holding it at arm's length until I do.

But, as I understand it, the lead is a mute female who signs throughout the movie and is nominated for a Best Actress Award. She rescues a human-like aquatic creature that is about to be euthanized. She rescues him and takes him home to her apartment where she keeps him in her bathtub. Somehow they indulge in love making. Bad guy finds out where the creature is and attempts to recapture it. Girl and creature about to escape, but they get shot. Creature carries her into the water where their wounds heal. She grows gills, and they live happily ever after.

I guess I have to see it to appreciate it, but it do seem pretty far fetched. Maybe there's a veiled lesson to be learned?

Another creepy movie. I watched it to the end hoping it had some redeeming quality. It did not. It was as bad as watching Passage to India.
