    So, I just saw The Predator and… it was not as bad as I thought I would be. I mean, it started out almost all right but degenerated fast around the midway point, but this thing felt like it was only one thorough script edit away from being a pretty decent dumb-arse action flick. :rolleyes: It parodied itself a little too hard at times, and it coped out with heavy exposition in the end, but the premise was not bad, the acting was quite engaging at times, and there were enough clever twists and turns to make it fun. Even more surprising, The Predator infrequently pulled off that weird, intangible machismo charm that animates the best 80s movies of the genre (such as basically all Arnold films of that decade).

    All in all -- and ignoring the obvious bad taste and Blacks shitty friend that he wanted in the film and all that -- The Predator was a pretty enjoyable movie, if you ask me. :oops:

    Watched Shoplifters again on Thursday. My best friend hadn't seen it and he likes drama movies, so we watched it. This time it was interesting spotting all of the lies. And instead of looking at Shota or the husband (I forget his name) as the main protagonist, I focused on Nobuyo (the wife). She truly was the most selfless character, and her reaction to hearing Yuri's parents' fight...how she collapsed. It was then that cemented every other character's fate in the movie, and seeing how much she sacrifices for her family pushed her to be one of my favorite film characters to date. THAT BEING SAID, there are aspects of her life I'm completely morally opposed to, but I also can't judge her on those.

    Shoplifters probably has some of the most morally complex characters and situations in a movie I've seen (probably because I DON'T watch dramas lol!), and while I don't want to see it again any time soon, it might just be in my top 10 favorite movies of all time now. I really want to see a movie called Like Father, Like Son by the same director.

    The second watch of Aladdin never happened (was postponed twice and then officially cancelled), but I'm cool with that. Watching Spider-Man: Far From Home at midnight tonight and the Avengers: Endgame rerelease tomorrow at 9:30 AM. And then hopefully Far From Home again later in the week.

    Just watched The Meg for the first time this past week. Pretty hard to make a shark-attack movie feel "fresh" but I think this one did it really well. Definitely worth the watch!

    I just watched this horror movie on Netflix called "The Ritual" the other night. I'm not a big horror movie fan, but it was really creepy and very well done. It's more like Jaws (but in a dense European forest) where you don't get a clear look at the creature until the very end, and even then it's still kind of hidden in shadows and night. Most of the movie is focused on the characters, their history/relationships, and their reactions while questioning their sanity. I highly recommend it.

    Alladin(2019) - Wasn't too bad. The cartoon version gains an edge for a few reasons. Jafar and Robin Williams. Jafar in the 2019 version is not very scary or as sinister as the other version. Will Smith as the genie isn't bad. He made it his own for sure.

    I saw Spider-Man: Far From Home today.

    It's very good and should appeal to a wide audience. The mid-credit and post-credit scenes are definitely worth waiting for.

    SPIDER-MAN FAR FROM HOME What a great addition to the library of Spider-Man films & it’s certainly challenging for a top 3 spot in my Spider-Man film rankings.

    Saw it yesterday, it was awesome! Couldn't agree more on the mid- and post-credits, they're actually setting up what's coming next.

    It's competition being Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man: Into the SpiderVerse, and Spider-Man: Homecoming I assume ;) ?

    As of today I've seen it twice and really enjoyed it. It captures the spirit of Peter Parker's Spider-Man (as a character and as a MCU legacy hero) perfectly, and the post-credit scenes are easily some of the best shocks around. I'll also go on the record and say Zendaya's MJ is better than the OT's Mary Jane and the Amazing Spider-Man movies' Gwen Stacy.

    Close but I have the first Spider-Man film in up there instead of Into the Spider Verse :).

    As for Zendaya’s MJ she is so good in that role & also she plays of TH really well so I might just have to agree with you (Even Though MJ & Red Hair just go together) & Gwen Stacy was the best part of the Amazing Spider-Man Movies (Which was probably one of it problems I That I felt more for GS the Spider-Man :p)

    Together with @RockyRoadHux, I've watched "Spider-Man: Far From Home". Personally it was medicore at a max. The non Spider-Man parts were much more entertaining than the action parts. The action was way too long and relied too much on CGI.

    My favorite scene was Peter being like Tony and building his new Spider-Man suit.

    Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

    I disagree about the post-credit scene. What an unnecessary scene. The mid-credit scene was interesting though, especially for a sequel.

    I'm the opposite. Did you watch Captain Marvel though?

    "When are you gonna come down? When are you going to land?"

    this won't be everyone's cup of tea, and i wasn't sure if it would be mine.

    I absolutely loved it... LOVED IT !!


    it made me smile, frown, laugh and sing along. i'm not a huge Elton John fan.. but that made little difference.

    visually and emotionally - there are some beautiful moments in this movie.
    i highly recommend ;)

    This post about "knives out" made me look up Sleuth and I found it (and the remake too) at our library. So I watched the 1972 incarnation at it was a really great experience. Laurence Oliver and Michael Caine are just fun to watch.

    i think the description that jumps to mind with this movie and the other 2 is that... it is what it is.. these movies aren't particularly deep or try to confuse anyone.
    without insulting myself too much.. they are a good fit for me :D

    I enjoyed it, although i think i preferred the first half of the movie over the second.

    the fight choreography is spectacular.
    I thought Halle Berry was incredible

    :)

    I'm planning to watch The Phantom Menace today at exactly 2pm (in ten minutes time!), at the exact same time and on the exact same date (15th July 1999) that TPM was first shown in the UK - 20 years ago today. . . .

    I couldn't find the film anywhere. Strangely enough it was on YouTube. I had never heard of the film until a few weeks ago. It really is a lost gem.

    I watched Alita: Battle Angel a couple of days ago. There's some really great stuff in the film and the premise is great. The last third of the movie is a mess though. It really should have been shorter. They tried to introduce too much. It's a shame because there's a lot of great things they could have taken the story.

    I really love Alita: Battle Angel a lot, I honestly think Episode IX is the only film that might challenge it as my film of the year, and I've seen quite a few films I liked this year already. I would urge you to give it another watch sometime, because I strongly feel it actually gets better on repeat viewings. It is quite heavy on the exposition, especially the first time you see it, but I wouldn't personally call it a mess.

    On topic, Alita: Battle Angel was the last thing I watched (again!) :D

    Maybe I will at some point. The last 30 minutes is a real chore though and there's one story thing that I really don't like. There's no doubt that some great work was done putting it all together.

    I'm not sure what my favorite film is so far. It's mostly just comic book stuff so far. Far From Home is my favorite on that front, but I'll probably start diving into some of the other films soon.
