Somebody please explain any humor, thanks.

Academy awards Best actor? Best movie?
don't think so.


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.

Is there an Oscar for "least surprising opinion"?

Yeah, you'd win it.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Agreed.[/quote]

What is it with some of you who get all bent out of shape (no pun intended) when someone has a differing opinion?!~

Finally saw Blank Panther. :D :D :D
Very cool, kinetic, gorgeous to look at. Fine cast, dialogue with that bit of sass that Marvel does so well.
And very importantly, strong emotional context/content for the villain, something too many comic book genre movies (I'm looking at you, DC :P) gloss over or ignore.

Watched a movie Secret Window recently. A great psychological thriller with Johnny Depp based on Stephen King’s book. Really like Depp as an actor and basically all the movies he plays at are memorable. There was this dark, mysterious house in the movie the main character worked at, actually looks quite similar to Depp’s 18 century villa in France which he bought in 2001 (yes, I googled, nothing unusual, just a villa with 6 additional cottages and 2 swimming pools in French Riviera :D )
I think this movie (Secret Window) is very underesimated, not so many people know about it, but I do recommend to watch it, if you like Depp and mystery thrillers.

i LOVE horror flicks. Get Out was "middle of the pack" kind of ok. not awful or anything, but definitely over rated.
Get out to Lenny’s for their big grand opening sale. Find eight government secrets and get a free kidnapping and personality reassignment so that you’ll forget you found them!

I watched The Beguiled. That is about it. Oh, and what a waste of acting talent.
