The Return of Even More Movies You've Watched This Week III


#924

How good? I normally only watch movies with this kind of storyline if they were directed by Wes Anderson.


#925

Really very good. I think you’d like it a lot.


#926

Black Panther 7.5/10

One of the better superhero movies. Did anyone catch the fact that Wakanda will be erecting a social outreach center at the site of the abandoned housing project? I think that’s the perfect set-up for the sequel, when a developer tries to raze it to build a shopping mall.

Black Panther 2: Electric Boogaloo


#927

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Perfect movie, imagine Hardcore Henry meets Spy Kids.

9/10


#928

A Quiet Place - Pretty damn good. Not really a horror movie; more of a thriller. As promised, I took my wife to see this movie. She does not like horror movies, but she liked this movie a lot. Very intense in spots. The sound dynamics are very effective. Everyone in the theater reacted to loud sounds the same way the onscreen characters did.

“The Emily Blunt Scene” is goddamned ridiculous. I might have held my breath for 5 minutes straight.

8.5/10


#929

I honestly wasn’t a fan for a few reasons. There were too many plot holes, I’m not going to go into detail because I don’t want to give spoilers


#930

Saw the way way back, very good film


#931

Question directed to anybody here:
Do you guys go to the cinema often?
Even with all the on-demand films available, this comment made me crave some good film at a quality theater.

I haven’t been to one for 8 years or so.


#932

Just went to see Super Troopers 2.

I loved the 1st one and this one did not disappoint either. Funny lines and a simple plot made for really easy watching.


#933

Watched Dirty Grandpa…not the kinda film I’d normally watch, but it had a heart in a fucked-up kinda way & delivered some sizeable lols too - 7/10


#934

Yeah once a week.


#935

Downsizing: 7/10 and 4/10.

Why two scores, you ask? Because it was two different movies. The second half (starting with the decision to go to Norway (not a spoiler!)) was like a different movie entirely and not in a good way.


#937

I used to go to the theaters once a week.

Now I avoid them because I’ve realized that I don’t actually enjoy watching films with a bunch of other people. I would continue going if I had the time to go on the weekdays and in the mornings, when you can expect very few people to be there.


#938

Finally saw Last Jedi. I’m not sure why all the hate? I thought it was fine. Not amazing, but not trash either.


#939

Troll :joy:


#940

No, seriously. There was stuff I didn’t like, but I thought it was fine.


#941

I think that’s why the hate exists. It received way too much praise for what it is. Kinda like Black Panther, except Black Panther lived up to some of the hype IMO.

I used to go 2-3x a month. Don’t have the time now. It’s the best way to see a movie IMO.


#942

Ya, I guess I can see that.


#943

I had no real problems with it as a non-Star Wars fan. Just couldn’t stand the fat Asian chick.

Someone was upset enough to do this:

And it’s pretty good lol.


#944

Being able to watch and enjoy a movie for what it is, and letting go what it is not, is really a gift in my opinion.
