I wouldn't go so far as to call any of the plot developments in the movie twists. There's no "everything you thought you knew was wrong" moment or anything like that. It's a really well put together movie that builds up the tension throughout and there's some scenes you don't want spoiled, but as much as the trailer shows you, I don't think it diminishes the movie at all.

Summer of Blood was randomly on the tv while I was getting ready for bed and I ended up watching the whole thing. I apologize in advance.

Watched Mortdecai and enjoyed myself.  Not sure what that 13% on Rotten Tomatoes was about.  I could see 50-60%

Eh, it's got a 29% user score on RT and 3.4 out of 10 on metacritic. So, there's no huge disconnect between people liking it and the critical reception. It's just possible, going out on a limb here, that you liked a shitty movie.

New Assassin's Creed trailer is really bad. Holy fuck. I'm not creating a thread for this movie.

Just showed my class "Soylent Green". The movie really has an unfair reputation for being campy because of the way Heston delivers his last lines but it's actually a great flick. Depressing as all fuck even now, too.

Jack Reacher 2. Do not go near this film. At the movies, on cable, even if it's free.

Huh, explains the low score I saw in my movie app. Didn't deliver at all then? Sad.

Watched the film Michael Clayton a couple of times recently after not having seen it since its original run. Very, very solid flick. One of the better depictions of the legal world with the bonus being a slow-burn thriller/suspense yarn.  Hell of a cast and Swinton is really fabulous in it (basically forgot she won her Oscar for it until I looked it up).

I watched the shallows tonight. It's fascinating to watch a movie just get worse and worse and worse. At some point someone just said, "Fuck it, it's not a horror movie, it's sharknado."

I should mention that La La Land is as good as the reviews suggest. Not going to bother making a thread for it because I know most here won't watch it but it's one of my favorites of the year (will probably win a ton of Oscars also not that that's relevant).

Moana is perfectly good Disney kids entertainment. Frozen on the South Pacific. Who knew the Rock could sing?

La La Land looks like it's a well done musical, but I fucking hate musicals with a passion so yeah, Velorath, I likely won't watch it.

My kids saw this and so I bought the soundtrack for my oldest. She will play it over and over if I let her. I had no idea Alan Tudyk and Jemaine Clement did character voices for it.

Alan Tudyk does voices for EVERYTHING.  Seriously, look him up ;  you'll be amazed at some of the shit he's been in.

For a musical it actually doesn't have that many musical (in that characters are singing about what's going on in the story) numbers and they're mostly front-loaded. There are two right at the beginning, another not too longer after which you can see pretty much in its entirety here, and one more later one. There's a bit of dancing here and there also, and there's some other music that's worked in more naturally due to Gosling's character being a musician. Also, if you're expecting something that's just light and cheerful there's a lot more emotional weight to this movie than you might first expect and parts of it hit pretty hard.

And if you're an Emma Stone fan at all, this is her at her very best. Like even more inhumanly charming than usual.

Watched Gozu on amazon prime last night. It's a Takashi Miike movie from 2003 and does some batshit crazy stuff, particularly towards the end. I really enjoyed it.

Kurt Russell horrorish western Bone Tomahawk, and Green Room (one of Anton Yelchin's last movies) are both available on Prime as well and are both highly recommended.

Caught Criminal last night on HBO Go.  I really don't want to live in a world where Costner is allowed to do things, or be seen by people.

Why don't you try our other games?

Chan-wook Park's latest movie The Handmaiden is now available to rent or stream digitally on Amazon. Probably his best work since Oldboy though nowhere near as crazy.

Jemaine's voice stands out as the big shiny crab for the entire number. I recognized it right off in the theater.

Tudyk voices the chicken. His lines were all "bawk" and "bawk, bawk".

They show Tyduk recording in the extra materials.  He looks right into the camera and says, "Yep, went to Juliard to do that."

I would like to thank Vladimir Putin for ensuring that every member of the NPR news staff has had to say "Pussy Riot" on the air multiple times.
