Not a movie but I watched Dirk Gently's holistic detective agency last week and was hooked. It's a series but the quality of it is amazing and the story and characters are really good. I absolutely loved it. If you like sci fi check it out.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance 1962

An oldie for sure but I hardly remember seeing it. With a good list of (old) movie stars, one of which was a Lee Van Cleef and a descent story line, it made for a reasonable watch.



7.5/10

You may have heard the Gene Pitney song for the sam name :D

A day at the movies today. Yes, sometime I do two in a day :)

Got to see (finally) Rouge One

Yes as expected. Great film and still Star Wars :up:
All well done and a fitting addition to the story line.
8.5/10

Then Passengers.
Great film and a smidgen better IMO. If you're into space sci-fi a must see, again, IMO.
9/10


EDIT: I am still trying to work out if the brains of that interstellar ship woke the engineer/mechanic purposefully to start a repair process. Your thoughts?

We know he wakes Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) after a year so does the ship then wake Gus (Laurence Fishburne) because the diagnostics system fail and bridge access was required?

Seems to suspend belief (pun intended) that the right people were woken up (their suspended animation life support pods failed).

Just goes to show, even with spares for everything, interstellar craft may need a crew to fix things, even if the majority of the crew/passengers are in hibernation (one day).

Inferno

2/10

I quite enjoyed some of the soundtrack...but overall this is absolute horse shit.

When you wrote 'Independents day 2' Doombrain I read it as 'Independence Day 2' :confused: and I now see my error.

Here's the trailer for Independents' Day (2016) and the link for the IMDB page.



I guess I'll skip this installment.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)

Hadn't seen this before but it was one of those that you say that you will go an see when you see a trailer at the movies. Somehow I missed it but caught it the other night on the TV.

Not too bad. Yes, watchable for sure but not one I'd go out and buy the DVD.
Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine made the movie as you'd expect and I didn't pick the appearance of Mark Hamill as the professor.

Hardcore Henry - 6/10

the USP of this is the first-person viewpoint, which is novel but sometimes disorienting. dumb fun, basically

Dumb fun, basically, Die Hard (part 1).
Plot-wise it looses against the thinnest of plots. But for what it wants it delivers on every point. 8/10

Watched this when it was released, if you're into sci fi then you should too :up:



Was right up my street, but not for everyone I'd imagine. It can be a bit cliche.

I wouldn't say 3, I mean it's a solid movie. Tis just that not much happens; I kept waiting for some kind of twist of shakeup.
Top notch acting by Andy Garcia though :up:

Steve Jobs (2015). If I didn't know the Apple story it would have made no sense. They picked such a weird timeframe of his life as well; nothing about how him and Wozniak founded Apple and no mention of Pixar. Odd.

I didn't dislike it though

It's definitely worth watching and some of the CGI scenes of space were beautifully done.

I didn't like how you saw everything coming a mile away. you knew he was going to wake her, you knew the bartender was going to tell her, you knew the crew member was going to die, you knew there was going to be some lame climatic scene where she comes back to him and you knew he wasn't going to die at the end.

the whole we have no time to wake another crew member to help because there was no time and then how there was only one medbay stasis bed on a ship of 5k. they should've ended it when them both going back into stasis and them waking up to live on the planet. he basically sentenced her to death and she got over it because she had no choice.

I thought a good move too but am stumped at the mention of Andy Garcia as I can't recall seeing him..... Checking... Captain Norris :question:

That was the whole point though wasnt it.

The name Aurora was also a bit on the nose.

Dr Strange

It's like Inception, Harry Potter and Edge of Tomorrow took LSD and had a gang bang. Not sure how to rate it yet....I think it requires a second watch.

Not about one I've watched recently, but came across this:
Lovely photos of the Fury Road vehicles before shooting.

Some absolutely stunning detail there that is easily missed in the movie.
