    Was there anything to figure out?
    Old Sam sacrifices himself for New Sam. New Sam reaches Earth and news reports talk about the Company imploding?

    Edit: I read your post too fast, @Lock_S_Foils, and thought it was the ending you didn't figure out, heh heh. What did you have problems with? I can't remember any tricky parts, really?

    Only by accident... there was a moment when Sam wakes up in the infirmary and being the details nerd I am I thought there was a continuity error with his hand bandage and then realised.

    Have you seen Archive? Another low budget sci-fi piece which was written and directed by Gavin Rothery, the production designer for Moon (there's definitely some design cues in the latter which remind you of the former). I recommend that too if you've not seen it. The robots are beautifully conceived.

    Excellent like the other movies in the series. Takeru Satou is perfect Kenshin. Now onto The Beginning.

    Morbius… it sucked watch it at home. I’ve warned you… as a comicbook fan it hurts to say this. I want every comicbook related film to succeed but unfortunately Morbius failed. Looking forward to Dr. Strange.

    The Lost City - My gf talked me into going to see this and I wasn't expecting much but it turned out to be a decent movie. Alot of laughs and somewhat similar to the movie "Jewel of the Nile"

    Instead of The Beginning, I've returned (ha!) to the beginning and re-watched Rurouni Kenshin: Origins. Such a fun movies watching the fam gathering together. I love it.

    Watching some of the Sean Connery Bonds with my dad. We watched Goldfinger last week and Thunderball last night. I liked Goldfinger well enough, Oddjob being the standout character, but Thunderball takes the cake so far. In fact, out of all of the Bond movies I've watched (two Connery and all of the Craig ones), Thunderball is in second place right behind Casino Royale. I also watched Death on the Nile on HBO over the weekend. I'm sad I missed the chance to see it in theaters since I was looking forward to it and I really liked the movie, but I was busy at the time and only had the chance to see The Batman.

    This weekend I hope to see the new Fantastic Beasts movie as well as Everything Everywhere All At Once. I actually really liked the second one (partially due to me liking long movies at times and partially due to dirt-level expectations), and I'm hoping to find some sort of enjoyment out of this one as well. I also just want to see more of Three-Piece Dumbledore.

    Thunderball is my favorite Bond film of all time, by far my favorite. That’s the film that made me a Bond fan. I won’t list my other favs… THUNDERBALL is my cup of tea starting with Domino… ‘you have sharp little eyes…’

    Everything Everywhere All At once is a sequel? If so, where can I watch the first one? I’ve got way too many streaming services and too little time to watch everything… I think I missed this one somehow… I work long hours so that might be it… anywho… good post!

    Before I watch Death on the Nile, I want to watch the first film with Rey, haha you know what I mean, her name escapes me at this time… Daisy Ridley gosh I’m getting old or had a very long day…

    kenshin kyoto inerno.jpg Kenshin legend ends.jpg

    I have now seen four out of five Kenshin movies (I am leaving Beginning for rainy days) and The Legend Ends is my favorite. Although we have another story set later in the timeline (The Final), this is the culmination of Kenshin's arc at least in the movies - when he accepts that he has people now and embraces living again. Also, people coming to help him one after another, after he left on his own, shows the mark he left in their lives. Without the doubt, even without seeing the last film, I can say Rurouni Kenshin is the best manga/anime live action adaptation so far. And it will take a miracle to take its crown.

    Why thank you! The analysis isn't as deep as some of my other reviews, but all the movies are solid recs all the way around.

    Do worry it's not a sequel! Everything Everywhere All At Once is a new movie staring the phenomenal Michelle Yeoh. It's supposed to be some sort of weird multiverse movie or whatnot, but I like Michelle and the trailers have sold me on it.



    Yeah my dad was raving about it too! He loves Goldfinger and Oddjob, and claims that that film sort of brought Bond mainstream, but Thunderball was when the series hit the sky.

    Murder on the Orient Express! Great film! I think Death on the Nile is a better looking film and a better done film overall, but Murder on the Orient Express is a classic story done just right.

    Amen to that! For most manga/anime live action adaptations, the bar isn't even close. (Although I have heard very good things about the Ace Attorney adaptation.)
    I find The Final to be...weird, but I'm also coming at it from a "manga first" perspective. They changed some very important things IMO, and not for the better, but these changes opened the way for other just as awesome things to happen. It works best as an epilogue than a climactic arc to the story, unlike the manga arc, but it's a good one nonetheless. I'm eager to hear what you think of it, whenever you do watch it.

    My friend just watched Pacific Rim the other night! He was unimpressed, but me and my friend's friend defended it. Pacific Rim is a blast IMO. The sequel needs to be blasted off the face of the earth and reworked. They took out everything that made the first one special and added nothing of value. Even John Boyega couldn't save that movie.

    I agree. Pacific Rim is a lot better than what it has any business being ;)
    Absolutely not my genre of film, but it works very well nonetheless :)

    A few posts up, I already saw it, The Final inspired me to re-watch everything. I read manga decades ago so I hardly remember it, I guess that's why The Final wasn't weird for me, though I noticed they robbed Kaoru of few awesome moments.

    blade.jpg

    Blade of the Immortal by Takashi Miike. If you never read the manga, it's a decent if conventional samurai story. The only unusual thing is that the main character is (as title says) immortal. But, if you've read the manga, like I did, the movie is but a pale adaptation of what I believe is Hiroaki Samura's masterpiece. Also, frankly, it's boring in parts.

    Though he sticks as close to the story as he can, Miike has condensed 30+ volumes of manga in a 2h+ movie, losing all complexities of manga's story and fantastic characters. He barely had the time to give you motivation of the main villain let alone everyone else. Takuya Kimura is good Manji (main character), I bet he would have been great if he had better material to work with. I wish this was a series of movies like Kenshin. The fights were decent and appropriately bloody. In the end, movie is not bad, it's just forgettable. But, I guess, for the man who made almost 50 movies in his career, not every one can be a win.

    On saturday I held a Ghostbusters marathon (cause my 3movie Blu-ray set came in. :D).

    [​IMG]

    and

    [​IMG]

    It was good to see the old ones again! (The 2016 "reboot" was not included for obvious reasons... :rolleyes:)
    Afterlife is awesome!! Great acting, fun story and the ending..

    That ending was imho the best digital send-off for a character, from a beforehand deceased actor, since Paul Walker's Brian O'Connor in Fast7!!
    Tears were running down my cheeks, it was SO beautifully done!

    What makes it even more poignant, is that producer and director of the originals, Ivan Reitman recently passed away... :(
    I'm SO glad he got the chance to make this movie with his son and see it enthousiastically embraced by the audience!

    And yesterday I saw:

    [​IMG]

    This is such a little gem of a movie!


    [​IMG]

    Much better then perceived (and the box-office results seem to indicate) and deserving of the planned sequel!
