    I feel like they get better with age. Pick up on stuff you don't grasp as a kid.

Not sure whether to try to get my girlfriend to see Deadpool or find time on my own to go... thoughts?
    As long as your girlfriend doesn't have super-delicate sensibilities, I think she'd like it. It's funny and even touching in parts. A bit graphic, but not on a Tarantino level or anything.

    You can tell what you're getting into from the preview, but it was entertaining enough -- plus Blake Lively is nice to look at (whoo, 2nd mention in as many posts).

    I think deadpool did a great job of appealing to a broad audience. Also, the ladies seem to like Ryan Reynolds. So I'd say take her.

    Mission Impossible 5: Rogue Nation.

    I knew what I was getting in to before the movie started. Sometimes an action Jackson movie where one can turn their brains off is the way to go.

    Finally saw some movies I've been meaning to watch. Enjoyed Sicario and Black Coal, Thin Ice (the story of the latter is frustratingly good, as in, it's real, and not storybook). The cinematography of the Black Coal, Thin Ice will be really appealing to film buffs. Also watched another foreign flick which I didn't like as much and had a dragging third act, but for dark humor and mild suspense, A Hard Day is a decent rec from Korea. Favorite movie I've seen recently is probably Ex Machina (yes, I'm playing catch up).

    In theaters recently: Really really liked the new Star Wars, and I'm not a fan of the series as a whole, so that's saying something I guess.

    Yeah it didn't leave much of an impression on me.
